Not even head, just a faceeven

@  TheMightyMol... : (25 November 2020 - 12:58 PM)

Just stick a Megatron head on Optimal Optimus.

@  Sabrblade : (25 November 2020 - 12:46 PM)

There was also an evil-looking black and gray redeco of the RobotMasters toy

@  Arazyr : (25 November 2020 - 11:54 AM)

That's KIND-OF what I consider the Throne of the Primes Primal to be...

@  wonko the sane? : (25 November 2020 - 11:16 AM)

I would buy the hell out a nemesis primal...

@  Bass X0 : (25 November 2020 - 11:15 AM)

I'm surprised there's not been a Nemesis Primal given all the Nemesis Primes.

@  unluckiness : (23 November 2020 - 03:17 AM)

The real Drifts were the Windblades we made along the way

@  PlutoniumBoss : (23 November 2020 - 02:25 AM)

Drift-kun 2 Electric Boobylube

@  ▲ndrusi : (22 November 2020 - 11:36 PM)

I'm pretty sure Drift 2 was Empire of Stone.

@  Sabrblade : (22 November 2020 - 10:06 PM)

I thought people said Prime Wheeljack was Drift 2.

@  Maximus Ambus : (22 November 2020 - 03:51 PM)

Windblade was Drift.2.

@  TheMightyMol... : (22 November 2020 - 02:44 PM)

Drift with boobs.

@  Rycochet : (22 November 2020 - 11:50 AM)

I can't imagine a live action movie version of Windblade being all that different from Drift. Not my thing, but not the worst thing I've ever seen.

@  Bass X0 : (22 November 2020 - 09:54 AM)

The thought of Movie aesthetic Windblade makes me feel sick.

@  NotVeryKnightly : (22 November 2020 - 08:47 AM)

Though, the fact that Japanese people would pay for Windblade toys in the $30-40 range doesn't mean they'd pay however much MPs are going for now.

@  NotVeryKnightly : (22 November 2020 - 08:44 AM)

Back when I made a habit of checking Mandarake for pre-owned TFs, Windblade's toys went for surprisingly high prices. By which I mean not lower than the original price.

@  Maximus Ambus : (22 November 2020 - 08:15 AM)

If she's in the next movie you might get her.

@  unluckiness : (22 November 2020 - 07:58 AM)

Japan didn't get most of the IDW comics and are the target market for MP. They basically know windblade from a few crappy pack-in comics and a show that wasn't particularly popular there. Unless they start cranking out Cyberverse MPs, it's not very likely.

@  TheMightyMol... : (22 November 2020 - 04:24 AM)

Again, depends if she's popular enough in Japan to warrant it. Our view of which characters are popular is not the same as Takara's.

@  Bass X0 : (22 November 2020 - 01:53 AM)

So characters like Windblade then.

@  TheMightyMol... : (21 November 2020 - 07:19 PM)

They're complicated and expensive to design. By necessity, they're gonna be restricted to well-known characters who are more likely to sell.

@  Bass X0 : (21 November 2020 - 07:05 PM)

I don’t think Masterpiece toys should be restricted to only show characters.

@  Rycochet : (21 November 2020 - 03:09 PM)

If she wasn't in the Sunbow cartoon, Live Action movie or Beast Wars and can't be repainted from someone else, she's not getting an MP.

@  wonko the sane? : (21 November 2020 - 12:44 PM)

They'll make their money back if they include the metal thong...

@  TheMightyMol... : (21 November 2020 - 12:29 PM)

Is she popular enough in Japan that Takara would even try?

@  Paladin : (21 November 2020 - 11:23 AM)

depends. will that one also have a giant metal thong?

@  Bass X0 : (21 November 2020 - 11:10 AM)

Should there be a Masterpiece Windblade?

@  -LittleAutob... : (20 November 2020 - 12:46 PM)

EIGHT WORDS! THATS A RECORD! XD

@  wonko the sane? : (20 November 2020 - 09:08 AM)

So you were hired by a middle easterner! AHA!

@  ▲ndrusi : (19 November 2020 - 11:45 PM)

that's eight words

"I only want to hear one word from you... The name of the guy who hired ya!"

@  Maximus Ambus : (19 November 2020 - 12:41 PM)

It's great how they reference G1 concepts like this one features the harmony from the episode Carnage in C Minor and and Slugslingers featured anti electrons from Grimlocks New Brain.

@  Steevy Maximus : (18 November 2020 - 10:01 PM)

Or at least those little story blurbs like Beast Hunters had. Especially for stuff like Selects which tend to exist in their own little side world

@  Maximus Ambus : (17 November 2020 - 04:03 PM)

I got me Legends Soundwave, Be cool if the next Generations toyline had a mini comic with the instructions.

@  Maximus Ambus : (16 November 2020 - 03:42 AM)

Aw no unusual activity on my Paypal Ebay, Amazon and Netflix account in one day! All I have to do it verify on those E-Mails and I'm all set..... wait a mo, I'm not on Netflix!

@  Tm_Silverclaw : (14 November 2020 - 11:56 PM)

I swear though.. The idea of "Catch up" is stupid.

@  TM2-Megatron : (14 November 2020 - 11:25 PM)

That's irritating, but it sounds par for the course with new hardware release. Within a year, there'll probably be some good stuff out there that does it all.

@  Tm_Silverclaw : (14 November 2020 - 11:23 PM)

4K/HDR switches are.. iffy.. Because most of them can't do 4K and HDR at the same time.. Or can't do 120hz... and all sorts of things the new TVs have built in, and the new consoles use...

@  TM2-Megatron : (14 November 2020 - 11:18 PM)

Maybe now that the PS5's made the whole 4K thing a little more mainstream, the hardware will start becoming more common. I know that's one of the hopes the physical media community has for the 100GB discs the PS5 is going to be using. Prior to this, they were very expensive tor replicate compared to a regular blu-ray and not used very often

@  TM2-Megatron : (14 November 2020 - 11:17 PM)

Up to now, there really haven't been a whole lot of 4K disc players to choose from... Samsung stopped making them altogether when they couldn't compete with the others, so your main choices are a few models of Panasonic or Sony

@  TM2-Megatron : (14 November 2020 - 11:14 PM)

Is there no such thing as a 4K/HDR switch yet?

@  Tm_Silverclaw : (14 November 2020 - 10:10 PM)

Which is fine.. But that still doesn't explain why they arn't putting out up to date HDMI switch boxes to get.. more money.

@  TM2-Megatron : (14 November 2020 - 09:59 PM)

My only TV with a respectable number of ports is my OLED 4K/3D, which has 4 HDMI, 2 USB 2.0s, 1 USB 3.0 and some weird proprietary thing that acts as both component and composite, depending on what you need. But it retailed for $10k when it first came out (I bought it 14 months later for less than half that). THey're going to get as many corners on less expensive sets as they can, which usually means only providing 2 HDMIs.

@  TM2-Megatron : (14 November 2020 - 09:55 PM)

I mean, there are some decent ones for under a grand. But yeah, I imagine that's what they're thinking. Most people I know, unless they're film or A/V aficionados, all they've got hooked up to their TV is a digital cable receiver and perhaps a game console and dated DVD player

@  Tm_Silverclaw : (14 November 2020 - 09:45 PM)

TM2-Megatron... If that is their assumptions.. That is one of the stupidest way to think.. Especially since Multichannel receivers way to fricken expensive for that. 3000 is way to expensive.

@  TM2-Megatron : (14 November 2020 - 09:11 PM)

They probably assume the people who actually need a lot of ports are the type of consumers who'd have a decently high-end Multichannel receiver. Whereas those people who don't need many connections probably don't even have a blu-ray player or anything. Maybe just a gaming console for the kids and an old DVD player.

@  wonko the sane? : (14 November 2020 - 04:04 PM)

I saw that movie. I don't want jim carrey in my head.

@  Maximus Ambus : (14 November 2020 - 03:43 PM)

Soon beam TV programs into brains with a neural transciever anyway.

@  wonko the sane? : (14 November 2020 - 03:28 PM)

I'm surprised they keep reducing the number of ports on TV's.

@  Tm_Silverclaw : (14 November 2020 - 02:52 PM)

Ahh.. No.. I mean an HDMI 2.1 switcher box to give you more imputs on a TV. :D Those should have been released in preparation of the XSX and PS5 considering their touting 2.1 features. :D

also, how do you know they're on sm all day? are you keeping tabs on them...? that's creepy. 

We're mutuals on a number of social networks. I keep my following count limited. When they make post after post while they're "busy working," it's pretty easy to tell, if that makes sense.
 
~Marduk

From what I've seen posted in this thread, they sound like a jerk, but it also sounds like both of you have an unhealthy/toxic relationship with the other.
I finally got rid of that big white box.

Oh yeah, that I would definitely agree with. Unfortunately, I have a hard time letting relationships go if I think they're still salvageable.

 

This is one of the things I will bring up with my therapist when I see them again.

do you still act the same if the other person disagrees with you on the possibility of reunification

That's a good question. I'd say, no. If there's no prospect of fixing things, I move on.

 

I'm at the point that I'm not sure this relationship is salvageable. I'm not sure I'd want any kind of reunification / continuance of friendship. I'm not sure it'd be good for me.

I saw this thread and figured I should also post here.

 

I have suffered from depression since I was around 13, I have had suicidal thoughts off and on over the years (I am currently 38).

 

My first friend committed suicide when I was in the Navy at 18, he was 16. I was horribly shocked... I was given some limited phone time around Christmas of 2000 to call home so I was making the rounds calling everyone which them a Merry Christmas, when i got to his number and dialed. I think I got his mom at first then his dad came on and broke the news that he has accidently shot himself the month before.  To this day I wonder if I had been home instead of in the service if I could have done something to prevent it from happening. Also why I am not very fond of the Thanksgiving/Christmas time of year.

 

To this day I still don't have any friends really, and this week my girlfriend broke up with me via text and yesterday she came with the cops and 2 friends in order to move out.... So I am having trouble because sometimes the though crosses my mind about taking the prescription sleeping pills that I have. I can't really control the thoughts all the time and it kind of runs through my head when I am feeing down. Which is hard not to be when you look around and see the empty spots where her stuff used to be after 11.5 years....

Break ups are always rough, but that one sounds especially bad after 11 years. If you are not seeing someone professionally, it might be something you want to think about. If you need to talk, feel free to PM.

So, how deep should I go here?

 

Right now, I’m about to cry. I’ve just been diagnosed with COVID-19. This is adding to the shit my life has been all year. 
 

Back in May, my mother passed away after a 6 month fight against sepsis. Her body simply couldn’t fight anymore. As I was her full time caregiver at that point, I had no job and was dependent on her pension for finances. With her death, I lost my home, my cat, and 99% of my possessions. I was preparing to move to New York where a good friend has a place for me to stay when I fell and broke my shoulder and messed up my knee. I’ve been in a rehabilitation center/nursing home ever since. I now have radial palsy in my dominate arm and hand which greatly reduces its use. I’m broke, and my GoFundMe is stalled and most likely failed. While I had some friends help me out, my family has been MIA outside of some seemingly empty words of comfort. I’m now fully cut off from my friends. 
 

(If you like to help out and donate to my GFM, here’s a link: https://www.gofundme...f share-flow-1)

 

I just don’t know how much I can take right now. I’m thinking of writing out my will just in case. 
 

If you pray, pray for me.

I'll pray for you. This year has just been brutal all around. I'm hearing about quite a few Covid cases from people I know lately. Hopefully you'll be one of the less brutal cases. Let us know.

I'm also sorry about your mother. That alone has to be hard enough without all the other crap going on. Feel free to vent as much or as little as you're comfortable with.

Mines not as serious. It's just after being depressed for so long and now having been better thanks to counseling and meds, I have to admit I'm feeling a bit dragged down again. Even not having had covid, I was forced to get tested (back when it still took a week to get results). Turned out to be nothing, but it still wiped out my sick days. Then all of the social distancing, mask mandates, 24/7 politics...that could bring anyone down.

I feel lucky that I don't have any other personal shit to pile on to that. Really what I'm going through is best case scenario of what EVERYONE is going through.

Still sucks hard.
