Wonko - I'm really sorry - I've been in that spot where everything is falling apart at the same time.

@  wonko the sane? : (04 March 2021 - 04:49 PM)

a minivan which NOW sounds like it's on it's last legs. Christ, why is everything breaking now?!?!?

And now my brother wants the old fridge, so instead of letting the delivery folk deal with it, I need to move it.

@  NovaSaber : (04 March 2021 - 11:53 AM)

I take objection to the idea that public health is "politics" just because some politicians don't listen to the experts.

@  fourteenwings : (04 March 2021 - 10:59 AM)

I was only replying to the general sentiment of the last three posts before mine.

@  NotVeryKnightly : (04 March 2021 - 10:58 AM)

The person you replied to specifically gave the example of "limiting the amount of people in a facility".

@  NotVeryKnightly : (04 March 2021 - 10:58 AM)

This wasn't about "lock[ing] everyone in the country down".

@  fourteenwings : (04 March 2021 - 10:57 AM)

All I'm saying is there are lockdown and anti-lockdown people and hashing it out in the shoutbox on a toy forum is dumb.

@  fourteenwings : (04 March 2021 - 10:56 AM)

You don't have to lock everyone in the country down to mitigate risks in one population.

@  fourteenwings : (04 March 2021 - 10:56 AM)

Of course older people have it worse, but America is one of those countries where people ship their old people to homes far away from the action anyways.

@  NotVeryKnightly : (04 March 2021 - 10:55 AM)

What ar you even trying to say, anyway? That we shouldn't complain about others increasing the danger more than necessary?

@  fourteenwings : (04 March 2021 - 10:55 AM)

Frankly, there's a lot to say on this issue that can't be encompassed on the shoutbox and I really really don't want to have to deal with politics every single time I check the forums.

@  NotVeryKnightly : (04 March 2021 - 10:54 AM)

To claim that this is about the people in the 20-40 range is also disingenuous.

@  fourteenwings : (04 March 2021 - 10:53 AM)

Essential workers and such are pretty fit on average which is an extra boon for them.

@  fourteenwings : (04 March 2021 - 10:51 AM)

It's not really a personal choice issue, it's a risk versus well, anything you want to do issue. Literally leaving the house results in potential exposure, mask or no. Overall, most of us who hang out here are 20-40, and our survival rate is comparable with some pretty out there statistics.

@  NotVeryKnightly : (04 March 2021 - 10:39 AM)

Anybody who has to go out because of work or groceries or whatever can't just choose to avoid any potential disease-spreaders, for one thing.

@  NotVeryKnightly : (04 March 2021 - 10:38 AM)

Kind of disingenuous to frame this as just a personal choice issue.

@  fourteenwings : (04 March 2021 - 10:22 AM)

This whole "I can't handle people not me having the choice to not put on masks" thing's a bit much.

@  -LittleAutob... : (04 March 2021 - 09:14 AM)

Hey, Florida is one of the most infected states, and we won't even shut down. We may use masks, but restaurants, clubs, you name it, those are still wide open. Also, what's limiting the amount of people in a facility again? :p

No kidding, but right now: unless it's physically on the shelf in front of you: there's no clear idea when it'll be available. And that goes for just about everything.

@  TM2-Megatron : (03 March 2021 - 04:18 PM)

I've heard new appliances are hard to get, for some reason

@  wonko the sane? : (03 March 2021 - 04:13 PM)

And the new one we settled on is backlogged up to two months. Even better.

@  NotVeryKnightly : (28 February 2021 - 07:22 AM)

Didn't that come right after the 2016 clown panic? No way to make clowns not disturbing at the time, surely.

@  PlutoniumBoss : (28 February 2021 - 04:26 AM)

The clown guise is supposed to lure kids in, it's no good if it looks sus in one glance.

@  PlutoniumBoss : (28 February 2021 - 04:15 AM)

The new one tries too hard to be unsettling from the start. Curry's look is just a plain old clown, until he very much is not.

@  PlutoniumBoss : (28 February 2021 - 04:14 AM)

And Curry has a far more disturbing look at times than the newbie.

@  Sabrblade : (28 February 2021 - 02:22 AM)

And the original was a showcase of Tim Curry's delightfulness as an actor. 'Nuff said.

@  unluckiness : (27 February 2021 - 10:19 PM)

first one was a decent horror flick but the second was a mess plotwise and even the scares were worse

@  tigerhawk : (27 February 2021 - 04:57 PM)

Never understood the hype for the IT movies, too many floppy zombie chases, They're not in the least unsettling.

@  Maruten : (25 February 2021 - 06:00 PM)

@  -LittleAutob... : (25 February 2021 - 10:26 AM)

If everyone had COMMON SENSE, then things would maybe go a little better-

@  repowers : (24 February 2021 - 05:33 PM)

If everyone would just have the exact same opinions as me then we wouldn't have this problem

@  Kalidor : (24 February 2021 - 01:49 PM)

It just depends on what it is. It is preferable to take it to P&R though. But sometimes current news as it's happening is less restrictive.

@  fourteenwings : (24 February 2021 - 12:18 AM)

Huh, good point (x3)

@  ▲ndrusi : (23 February 2021 - 11:46 AM)

Yeah. 1. People treat it like Twitter. 2. There's no "take it to P&R" since there's no P&R for the Shoutbox. 3. There's similarly no way to avoid either subjects or people in the Shoutbox since there's no division and it doesn't respect the ignore function, so people end up engaging when they normally wouldn't.

Hoping my TFSource preorder pulls through, since I missed the boat on BBTS's preorder due to having never gotten word of it until after it was sold out.

Its just arrogant laziness to know you're spelling a word incorrectly and not correct yourself or ignore the advice when people do tell you how to spell a word correctly.

Same. He's the last one I need for my Starscream, Starscream, Starscream, Starscream, and StarscreamTerrorsaur combiner.

Mine has listed as paid for and will ship shortly from TFSource, so I think you'll be fine.  Soon, with his reprolabels and new shiner limbs, Tighty Whitey will be no more!  Starscream's new combiner name will be GOLDWINGER!

 

Then Starscream will be seen planning to get that non-combining tetrajet body as soon as he can...

 

I do wonder if anyone will buy three of these and claim they have Skywarp and Thundercracker too like tfwiki advocates.

My TFSource preorder for GL Starscream has processed. Gonna wait to ship it later after I save up a bit so as to take advantage of the free shipping on orders over $150. Got my eyes on a few other things that I can group together in my Stack with Screamer.

I can, tomorrow. Ironically there are no instructions on how to transform him into leg mode. Just var and arm mode. They tell you to combine him with Abominus.

Incidentally both he and Optimus come with tech spec bio cards. Their stats are all 10's even if it's really their Endurance is infinite.

"Sadly, Megascream was felled before he could even step into the battle on account three of his limbs each tried to stab the torso in the back. SG Starscream, meanwhile, made treats for everyone."


"Disabled people donít have special needs. We have very reasonable human needs. Our needs include freedom from abuse, violence, and mistreatment, the right to autonomy and self-direction, the right to represent ourselves, equal opportunity for education and employment, the right to accommodation, and societal inclusion and acceptance.

The need for accommodation isnít a ďspecial needĒ. Itís a basic human right. Itís a leveling of the playing field that allows us the same opportunities and chances as non-disabled people."

Starscream just came in the mail. I played around with him a bit, putting him in jet mode for a few minutes before attaching him as Ulchtar "King Starscream's" arm.

 

HO BOY

 

If the other "Lucky Draw"-type, hyper chromed figures are like him, me and my wallet are glad that this will be the only one we get. I was so scared of breaking something every time I moved a joint, and I think I've already chipped off some of the shiny gold paint where the legs connect together (why oh WHY did you paint over this Takara)

 

he looks great though.

I'll be honest, at the expense of some of the chrome I sanded a bit of the leg-tabs to avoid future issues.  I can fix it easier now than later.  But I knew this wasn't going to be the most durable figure, it is one of the few cases where I decided to get something just to enjoy the sheer weirdness value. I'll probably get one of those gold chrome pens as a backup for future repairs. Back in the Transmetal days I used chrome nail polish for repairs, though that was hit or miss.

Just an observation, if you take him outside, there are actually multiple GRADIENTS of gold on it (in the chrome I mean, not counting what I added in weapons OR the non-chrome plastic).  It looks amazing, and...seems completely impossible to photograph.  Nuts.  Either way, definitely a nice thing as for my and several other people's purposes, Sunstorm was sometimes portrayed as something really unusual and this toy has that in spades. I could see him being something of an outlier, willing to temporarily join a combiner team but never for any reason that makes any sense to anyone.
