People forget the whole phrase. It's "Great minds thing alike, but fools rarely differ."

The German version is very straightforward: "Two idiots, one idea."

@  Nevermore : (21 February 2019 - 08:49 PM)

English: "Great minds think alike".

@  Nevermore : (21 February 2019 - 08:49 PM)

Here's an example of a phrase that's charmingly positive in English but self-deprecating in German:

Turns out the basic figures in the transformers siege line are basically minicons, and my sister is back in the hospital for another psychotic break. It's been an emotional day, and it's not even 1 pm yet.

@  Pennpenn : (21 February 2019 - 12:27 AM)

Maybe, or maybe it'd be more like wood? Y'know, bashing each other with planks.

@  Ashley : (21 February 2019 - 12:23 AM)

@  Sabrblade : (19 February 2019 - 09:21 PM)

It's not "Optiplush"... it's "Softimus Prime"

@  Ashley : (19 February 2019 - 08:19 PM)

I've got the two plushes from the first movie, they're great

@  Shrug : (19 February 2019 - 08:00 PM)

Still have mine, although Optiplush Prime is kind of discolored

@  Shrug : (19 February 2019 - 07:59 PM)

They came out around the time of the first movie with the big merch push, but they were distinctly G1 and everything else wasnt, IIRC

@  Trpodeca : (19 February 2019 - 04:51 PM)

@  Trpodeca : (19 February 2019 - 04:51 PM)

@  wonko the sane? : (19 February 2019 - 01:41 PM)

I did not even know those things were a thing. I guess they didn't do very well cause they didn't make more of them.

@  Steevy Maximus : (19 February 2019 - 01:25 PM)

Pfft, Hasbro did that 12 years ago with Slumblebee and Optiplush Prime

@  Xellos : (19 February 2019 - 12:37 PM)

Well, this past Christmas I did see licensed plush Transformers that went from their robot to vehicle mode by turning inside out just like popples.

@  wonko the sane? : (19 February 2019 - 12:02 PM)

Why DIDN'T transformers make plushes ala popples?

@  ▲ndrusi : (19 February 2019 - 11:04 AM)

Design in mixed media and make him out of actual flannel.

@  Lancer : (18 February 2019 - 09:24 PM)

Make his fur a red and black flannel pattern

@  wonko the sane? : (18 February 2019 - 09:10 PM)

Bonus points if you can work in a red and black flannel pattern on his chest plate.

@  wonko the sane? : (18 February 2019 - 09:09 PM)

Might as well make it cliched. Lumberjack moose male and aristocratic deer female.

@  TriBlurr : (18 February 2019 - 08:16 PM)

Or their aristocratic deer.

@  TriBlurr : (18 February 2019 - 08:10 PM)

Thinking of making a pair of moose Transformer OCs, male and female. Thier a lovey dovy pair of lumberjacks

i just checked my past tfsource orders, and theres no sales tax charge

@  Arazyr : (18 February 2019 - 11:16 AM)

They haven't (yet, at least) on the stuff I currently have in my Stack. Haven't had them ship anything for a while, though, so I don't know if they will when I do...

@  Benbot : (18 February 2019 - 11:04 AM)

Does TFSource charge sales tax?

@  wonko the sane? : (18 February 2019 - 09:47 AM)

That's because, once upon a time, the people whom owned the animals weren't the people whom butchered them. So the pig was owned by a saxon who spoke english, but butchered by a french speaker. So a pig got cut up into PORC chops.

@  unluckiness : (18 February 2019 - 03:25 AM)

Hank Pym<<<< Hank Hill

@  PlutoniumBoss : (18 February 2019 - 01:28 AM)

In that case, I don't see anything wrong with English speakers calling it what it is in English. Even though we technically use the French words for what comes out of it. "Beef", "pork"...

Scar Jo has already done too many movies too close to this since she first portrayed Black Widow.

I'm not outright against this, but I will need convincing to get on board.

Count me as cautiously optimistic this movie does well. Scarlett Johannson is a damn good actress, but I fear if things go wrong, this could end up like Solo did - people complaining that it wasn't necessary despite being a decent film.

I'v always found Black Widow super dull as a character. She's generic Russian sexy super spy #2343. She's fine as a supporting character but in her own she's just a generic action movie cliche.

A Black Widow film might be the first Marvel film I purposely skip. And I love Marvel films.

-ZacWilliam, unless they give her a superhero co-star who's fun and/or a trailer that is Thor: Ragnarok level kick ass I can't imagine caring.

I thought we already got a Black Widow film... like it had Hunger Games in it or something.  Red Sparrow or something rather.

put hawkeye in it too. they seem to work well together, and theyve got the history. i just dont think widow by herself would be interesting enough. give her someone to work off of and it might work

 

ill still it regardless...

I think the concept of being educated and being able to educate is something that more people need more of in their lives.

No, we don't all know everything but we should spread and share that what we do know.

If I'm consistently misspelling a word, I would want and expect people to correct me as should I imagine all decent people who know the value of good literacy.

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.

I fear this may be Marvel's first misstep, although I hope not.

 

Admittedly, online reaction is probably no way to judge how a movie might perform, but this is the first Marvel flick where I'm seeing apathy. And there's also outright hostility to the project from a fairly vocal crowd who are just generally upset with Scarlett Johannson over the whitewashing controversy for Ghost in the Shell, as well as the recently announced project in which she'd have been playing a transgendered character. Although she did pull out of the latter, people aren't likely to forget or give her a break for it.

I think at this point it's too little, too late for a Black Widow movie to do gangbusters.  It'll do fine but it won't break out like a Black Panther.

 

Ironbite-mostly because Johansan's movie choices have been....shit.

She has the second highest net worth of any of the MCU actors (RDJ is the highest). So she must have made some good decisions.

Black Widow is barely a superhero, has never been interesting in any of the movies, and doesn't matter to the plot anymore.

Cancel this and make a Shuri movie. Or even Scarlet Witch.

this should not be a prequel, the time for that story to be told is well and truly lost to Marvel. It'd be like killing Ben Parker again... we don't need it.

 

what we do need is a movie that shows a) Why she should still be on the Avengers team and b) why she even wants to be on the Avengers team.

 

these are the 2 lingering question the character has left that can be exploited for plot.

After Infinity War, I am fully onboard with a Scarlet Witch solo outing.


Don't fight it, it's coming for you, running at ya / It's only this moment, don't care what comes after
Your fever dream, can't you see it getting closer / Just surrender 'cause you feel the feeling taking over
It's fire, it's freedom, it's flooding open / It's a preacher in the pulpit and you'll find devotion
There's something breaking at the brick of every wall, it's holding All that you know
So tell me do you wanna go?
