Smash Bros could never touch a new franchise again, and I'd still have laundry lists of side characters and villains I'd love to see included.

@  SG Roadbuster : (15 June 2019 - 09:35 AM)

if we must have another zelda character, id want the king of red lion

@  MEDdMI : (14 June 2019 - 10:38 PM)

I would unironically love Tingle in Smash.

@  Paladin : (14 June 2019 - 02:06 PM)

they HAVE to put Travis Touchdown in at some point now, right???

@  TheMightyMol... : (14 June 2019 - 01:24 PM)

@  Locoman : (14 June 2019 - 12:36 PM)

When will we get Bluster Kong in Smash?

@  unluckiness : (14 June 2019 - 08:20 AM)

The last three DLC characters are Tingle, Charles Barkley and L Tetris block with Reverse L Tetris block as an Echo fighter.

@  unluckiness : (14 June 2019 - 06:01 AM)

I still want to find out how freezing people suspends them in midair

@  Tm_Silverclaw : (14 June 2019 - 02:45 AM)

We really need Subzero or Scorpion in Smash. Violence aside, they are pretty big gaming icons as well.

@  Steevy Maximus : (13 June 2019 - 08:18 PM)

Given Nintendo's relationship with Tecmo, I'm still waiting for Ryu Hyabusa

@  TheMightyMol... : (13 June 2019 - 07:19 PM)

I'm still waiting for Doomguy.

@  Steevy Maximus : (13 June 2019 - 06:47 PM)

I just started watching High School DxD (don't judge me...) and I caught on the Nintendo Treehouse some request Rias for Smash lol

As an open-minded heterosexual, I wouldn't mind seeing more of that.

@  Nevermore : (10 June 2019 - 05:29 AM)

Currently in the process of re-reading Kurt Busiek's Astro City. Big props for the issue featuring the "Dancing Master" and its portrayal of non-stereotypical gay characters.

@  TM2-Megatron : (10 June 2019 - 05:25 AM)

Don't phone charges often contain special rapid charge circuitry, though? The voltage might be higher too, given the selfie stick probably has a very basic battery.

@  SHIELD Agent 47 : (09 June 2019 - 11:28 PM)

Glad to be of assistance!

@  Telly : (09 June 2019 - 10:32 PM)

*checks selfie stick and phone charger* huh. perfect fit. thanks!

@  SHIELD Agent 47 : (09 June 2019 - 09:58 PM)

I would use the USB-to-AC adapter that came with my iPhone, though I gather you must have a different brand of cell phone.

@  TM2-Megatron : (09 June 2019 - 05:42 PM)

In that case a generic adapter is probably your best bet, then. Keep in mind a lot of hotels now have plain USB outlets in rooms too, though; but I guess that's not guaranteed

@  Telly : (09 June 2019 - 05:31 PM)

yeah, i just need something small to plug into the wall. im not sure im taking my laptop on my trip later this year and i want a way to charge my stuff

@  TM2-Megatron : (09 June 2019 - 05:04 PM)

They also have wall outlets with built-in USB in addition to the two regular plugs; I installed those around my place so I have USB ports everywhere

@  TM2-Megatron : (09 June 2019 - 05:02 PM)

You might be able to get a generic adapter to use with it at Radio Shack if you know the appropriate voltages or whatever

@  TM2-Megatron : (09 June 2019 - 05:01 PM)

It came with a USB cable with no AC adapter? A lot of lower priced electronics do that, presumably assuming that USB is pretty ubiquitous

@  TM2-Megatron : (09 June 2019 - 05:00 PM)

Yeah, must be, I guess.

@  Telly : (09 June 2019 - 04:59 PM)

maybe having bluetooth has something to do with it?

@  Telly : (09 June 2019 - 04:58 PM)

the one i got has an on/off button, and came with a usb to attach to my laptop to charge it. its this one https://www.walmart....ility/432985497

@  TM2-Megatron : (09 June 2019 - 04:51 PM)

Selfie sticks have power? I thought they were to just hold the phone away from you

@  Telly : (09 June 2019 - 04:44 PM)

need some technical help.how do i charge my selfie stick without using my laptop? is there some kind of portable charger? i know it sounds like a dumb question, but i dont know very much about this stuff

@  MEDdMI : (08 June 2019 - 06:58 PM)

Different songs or overdosing don't work for me. My brain can play multiple songs at once. Best to do something else to distract me.

@  Xellos : (08 June 2019 - 05:36 PM)

Still, the worst is having the last song I hear before going into work being stuck in my head all day.

@  TheMightyMol... : (08 June 2019 - 05:00 PM)

Get a different song stuck in your head too. Let them battle for supremacy. Only the strong survive.

@  Nevermore : (08 June 2019 - 03:53 PM)

Keep listening to it over and over until you got the lyrics memorized. By that point, it will start to fade out of your system.

@  Nevermore : (08 June 2019 - 02:48 PM)

I've discovered the easiest cure for having a song stuck in your head is overdosing to the point of fatigue.

@  Steevy Maximus : (08 June 2019 - 12:27 PM)

Jedi Fallen Order sure does look a LOT like a Souls style game with Star Wars flavoring

@  Kalidor : (07 June 2019 - 06:18 PM)

I have a hard time believing that you speaking at length and with great detail is something you wouldn't be good at. Glad you had fun.

@  Nevermore : (07 June 2019 - 02:51 PM)

Funny thing is I wasn't nervous at all. Might have helped that I was able to speak freely due to having assembled my speech from a lot of smaller segments I had previously told to my colleagues on the shopfloor, with a few punchlines added.

@  Nevermore : (07 June 2019 - 02:49 PM)

Allegedly I did well. Lots of applause, and was told I was leagues beyond the guy who spoke before me (though that wasn't difficult, that guy was dry as a river on Mars).

@  Nevermore : (07 June 2019 - 02:48 PM)

So I volunteered to hold a small speech at our strike assembly today (lots of Amazon employees, plus some people from IKEA, Smyths toys and some other local retailers).

@  Maximus Ambus : (07 June 2019 - 01:17 PM)

Today Dolly the Sheep and Super Salmon, tomorrow Neo Sapiens. We're through the looking glass people.

@  Kalidor : (07 June 2019 - 12:55 PM)

Happy birthday @Pinkcolliebot

@  Pinkcolliebot : (07 June 2019 - 12:03 PM)

Today's My Birthday!!!

@  TheMightyMol... : (07 June 2019 - 03:16 AM)

Think how many copies of Optimus Prime's brain could fit on that.

@  TM2-Megatron : (06 June 2019 - 11:21 PM)

If only Johnny Mnemonic had had $25, he could've saved himself a big headache.

Maybe Hasbro will release him without the trailer??

Maybe Takara will make sure the trailer pegs in differently than MP-10s just to be dicks??

The trailers probably won't be compatible anyway since the back end of this new Optimus looks to be half as tall as the bloated back end of MP10.

No idea how anyone thought that that back end on MP-10 made any sense. It led to bloated legs that werent really accurate to anything. The one thing I always preferred about MP-1.

This looks to move away from my preferred aesthetic a bit much, but credit where credit is due for apparently resolving the truck grille abs so they don't result in him having a flat, sunken-in stomach (MP-01) or very obviously not using the same parts in both modes (MP-10).

... and the MP1 tail was accurate to.. what, exactly...?

Seriously, Prime's huge chunky legs back there will never be accurate. Trucks are flat out skeletal behind the cab.

I mean theyre both terrible, but I maintain that MP-10 looks worse here, and winds up with worse legs in bot mode.

MP10s chunky shins are taller in proportion to the cab but thats only because Mp01s cab was vertically stretched out.

Toyhappy covered the toy show, Transformers coverage starts 5 minutes in.

 

 

Three observations:

 

1) I'm amused that the Transformers booth has English speaking reps, and if memory serves, it's had English speaking reps at TTS before.

 

2) Hah, that's the Energon Optimus Prime on display with all the other Cybertron Leaders.

 

3) The Zoids and their battery powered gimmicks are sick.

Anyway I'd like a Prime that matches the animation model and hopefully has articulation matching the recent MPs and something about MP-10's proportions felt off to me and I basically just got into collecting MPs so I guess I'm the only one happy about this announcement.

 

Sorry about that.

The thing I like the best about the Gold Lagoon figures is that Optimus has gold tires.  I don't think we ever usually get rubber tires that aren't black.  Shockaract had those white treads (which mine rotted away :().

So I want to be like "maybe, but" but there's not a lot of maybe, the windows aren't fake. There's a strip taken out the middle and they collapse together over it in robot mode, like the hood chest of Alternity Convoy or like Toy World Primorion in reverse. There's also a tiny strip of non-window that materializes from lands unknown to give the windows back their missing frame edge.

You're right, and good job.

If the windows are real, could the abs grille be part of the actual grille? Have they made a Masterpiece Optimus Prime that doesn't throw out what is good about Optimus Prime as a design?

More concerningly, will they do a version with a rounder Marvel Comics head that I'll actually want to buy?

Fake chest windows

There's also a tiny strip of non-window that materializes from lands unknown to give the windows back their missing frame edge.

Looking at it further, I think the chest windows are actually the backsides of the regular truck windshield.  I'm kind of wondering if the whole front of Optimus' torso is really on the backside of the truck's front, sort of like an insanely complex version of Powermaster Prime's cab robot.

With how Masterpieces are designed these days, that's entirely plausible.
