Yeah, my hybrid does that when idling or at low speeds. Otherwise it's almost completely silent.

That might actually be a fake noise they make electric cars make so pedestrians can hear them. Some cars even let you pick out what noise they make.

Actually heard a car with that electric, scifi-hum to it. Made me realize that we kinda are living in the future...

@  tigerhawk : (13 May 2021 - 03:28 AM)

Nearly thirty Studio Series figs including the '86 line. "I won't touch that." I said a few years ago when deluxe wave 5 came to my store for a tenner each. My latest one' is 72 Starscream.

@  tigerhawk : (10 May 2021 - 02:56 AM)

The 1988 G1 line up could all have been done as Titan Master things, I figure the Pretenders could be done as Titan Master Drones and Prime Master shells.

@  Cyoti : (08 May 2021 - 11:14 AM)

Perfect is the enemy of the good. And it's still better than making him a remold of RTS Jazz as planned originally. Fact of the matter is: Nightbeat is just not a priority with Hasbro.

@  Demovere Xeno : (08 May 2021 - 08:58 AM)

Generations Nightbeat never really scratched that itch sadly; he looked okay, but his transformation was fiddly, his robot mode had far too many bits and pieces flopping around unsecured, and his chest dragged along the surface in var mode. =/

@  Demovere Xeno : (08 May 2021 - 08:57 AM)

I second wishing that we got a Deluxe Nightbeat from TR, mostly because as a kid he was second-in-command to my old Powermaster Optimus for the longest time. =P

@  tigerhawk : (08 May 2021 - 05:41 AM)

Wipe Out and Wilder it coulda been: Wipe Out is down in the dumps because the Scramble City Trypticon was destroyed and left him a drifting to the point he arrives in Legends World, he finds Wilder and both go on a crime spree subverted by their realisation neither gets any joy from it until they stop a violent crook together and become anti heroes. (Bass XO beat me!)

@  Bass X0 : (08 May 2021 - 05:39 AM)

Yes, Nightbeat and Siren would have been easy remolds of Chromedome - just give them new chests and each other's Titan Master heads. Fangry and Squeezeplay would be remolded from Twinferno with their own Titan Master heads. And Horri-Bull would have been remolded from Wolfwire.

@  Rycochet : (07 May 2021 - 05:10 PM)

Surprised we didn't get a full size retool from the monsterbot mold. I'd rather have a CW Ironhide retool though, we need a van Wilder.

@  tigerhawk : (07 May 2021 - 04:19 PM)

I just noticed Wilder was the only omission from Takara Legends.

@  Nevermore : (07 May 2021 - 06:01 AM)

Even more weirdly, it was the early shift where some people had their regular day off for the week, while the late shift was supposed to have full attendance (not counting sick days, vacations and overtime reduction).

@  Nevermore : (07 May 2021 - 01:15 AM)

The weirdest part was that there was a steady influx of voters during the early shift, while hardly anyone showed up during the late shift.

@  Nevermore : (07 May 2021 - 01:14 AM)

Wow, that was a long day. But it's over, and I finally got some sleep. Not particularly happy with the outcome, but then again, my candidates both admit they didn't really campaign that much.

@  Nevermore : (05 May 2021 - 03:14 PM)

The election committee whose chairman I am has been preparing this election since February. There's no real gain for me either way, so I don't care that much for the outcome, but it's going to be a stressful day for me either way.

@  Nevermore : (05 May 2021 - 03:13 PM)

My TR Perceptor fell and the titan master peg in the leg snapped off. Fortunately I have the Legends one.

@  wonko the sane? : (02 May 2021 - 08:50 PM)

It's a fairly well known fact that "it's a wonderful life" only became popular after it dropped into the public domain. So, yeah, they probably did.

@  SHIELD Agent 47 : (02 May 2021 - 08:29 PM)

I read an interesting observation on Twitter. If it is the natural course of a human to grow into Grandpa Abe yelling at a cloud, but nostalgia also yields rose-tinted glasses for the likes of one's youth, then did Greatest Generation adults bemoan how Baby Boomer children loved box office flops such as The Wizard of Oz and It's a Wonderful Life?

@  Otaku : (02 May 2021 - 09:26 AM)

At the same time, with my almost non-existent knowledge of Japanese and how oddly some things translate, seeing "Gorgeous Giorgios Gorges" made me wonder if that would make it "JoJoJo"... which now has my brain terrified of a weird Bobobo-bo Bo-bobo/Jojo's Bizarre Adventure Crossover. @[email protected]

@  Otaku : (02 May 2021 - 09:24 AM)

It is always weird when things align.  This talk of Gorgeous Giorgios Gorges in the SquawkBox reminded me of King Gorgeous Gorge on the FoxBox.

@  -LittleAutob... : (01 May 2021 - 08:52 PM)

Nice

@  Nevermore : (01 May 2021 - 09:03 AM)

I got one even better: After that character by the name of Gorgeous Giorgios dies in a gorge, they name that whole area after him: The Gorgeous Giorgios Gorges.

@  tigerhawk : (30 April 2021 - 01:56 AM)

Paint apps did slide notably during TR, wave one's Titan Masters had detail but wave 2 onwards was absent of them. Wave 5's Ramhorn, Dreadnaut, Scorchfire and Aimless had detail but Murk and Hazard didn't, can't speak for Flameout as I got Legends Twintwist and Slugslinger.

@  kizudarake : (29 April 2021 - 04:50 PM)

Anyone here got any g1 jet fire parts for sale?

@  wonko the sane? : (29 April 2021 - 04:12 PM)

Other than a few overly tight joints, the paints apps are my single complaint about the generations line.

@  tigerhawk : (29 April 2021 - 02:25 PM)

I just saw Legends Leo Prime now I wish Titans Return Alpha Trion had a few more paint apps for ship mode.

Still at Season 2 ep5 and I had to look up Amaya signing about when they were planning to attack the magma Titan. Supposedly Amaya signs 'hit the right spot and she goes yes'.

0_0

Also, the child queen had two mothers. Scorpia from She-Ra Netflix had two mothers. Other than Bow's dads, what other show has two dads for parents?

Edit - finished season 2. Ezren is low key awesomer than Callum. Also, I hope Claudia doesn't turn real evil. Viren is cool too but the mirror thing really came out of nowhere.

Ah, I think I read about that once but I don't watch Loud House.

Aaaand at ep3, Rayla's uncle has a husband. With Rayla as sort of their ward.

Edit - the death of Thunder, geeeeeez!

Edit again - finished it. That was great stuff! Season 3 and half of season 2 were just exciting. I was actually just slogging through the first parts because it was going too slow.

Anyhow, I hope they get back to Viren bring dead and just brought back to life or whatever. Cuz then Claudia would be that powerful then.

Or she killed a guard to transfer life to her dad, whichever.

I kinda like Viren. He can always claim at the end that Aaravos was controlling him from the start.

Also I hated the fatalities in the battle. Even Avatar the Last Airbender with Sozin's Comet didn't show the armies really killing each other. (Sokka dropped soldiers from their airship buuuuut I'm sure they were all wearing parachutes. Or landed in soft trees and whatnot. Haha).

Here, I'm sorry Kaseftheotherprince guy had to get an arrow to the face. From a child no less. Terrible. The powered up soldiers were just misguided too. Maaaaan.

Amaya and that sun elf being friendly was a fave bit and I don't even like that, haha.

Soren can suck an egg. Bully. Haha.

Ezran having beast master powers came from where? Callum learning natural magic is fine. I'd prefer if he wasn't a 'chosen one' cuz of his daddy bloodline.

Er, did they ever say that Ezran and Callum have the same mom? Callum on said the king was his stepdad but I didn't think they had the same mom.

Exciting news everyone! Netflix has cancelled the show for no reason!

 

No, wait they didn't do that. Instead they've renewed it for the full run of seven season (or four more).

 

In practise that'll probably be 36 more episodes, or two seasons of 18 episodes (Book 4: Earth and Book 5:???, along with Book 6 and 7).

 

Also upcoming is a tie-in graphic novel and tabletop role playing game, which will apparently bridge the gap between seasons. So they're probably jumping ahead in time.

You fooled me at the start there, you monster, you! Haha!

So timeskip? Like a huge culture shift like Aang to Korra's with a jump in technology? But this time, it would dragons being common place and the races are friendlier?

Callum will have a beard now and is a daddy. Ezran will have a girlfriend.

Edit - Bait will be as big as a horse!

I am shocked by the renewal and by 4 more seasons. I am guessing that Avatar's resurgence in popularity helped since this is seen as a spiritual successor to that and Korra.

I don't want a timeskip. Or least, not one set a long time later. A few days, a week, two or three weeks at most, but not months or years later.

 

I wanna see how things pick up not too long after where we left off. There's so much at that ending to build off of and continue with right after rather than long after.

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.

In practise that'll probably be 36 more episodes, or two seasons of 18 episodes (Book 4: Earth and Book 5:???, along with Book 6 and 7).

The Books are named for the different types of magic; we've already had Moon, Sky, and Sun, which leaves Stars, Earth, and Ocean, as well as Dark magic (which, logically, will be the last book, since it's the one type of magic not linked to a Primal source).

(Aaravos is a Startouch Elf, which suggests that "Stars" will be the second-last arc, where we finally learn all of his backstory before the series' true Big Bad is revealed.)

Book 1: Moon
Book 2: Sky
Book 3: Sun
Book 4: (Earth?)
Book 5: (Ocean?)
Book 6: (Stars?)
Book 7: Darkness

Blame the vrius, it thrown a monkey wrench in pretty much everything, last I checked which was eariler today, it said summer of 2020 but with the vrius causing massive delays to a lot of things, I'm going to say its likely to be Winter when it arrives, but that is just spectulation.

Uuugghh. Why did nobody tell me this show was so good?!

(Probably somebody did but I was just all "ehhh, I have Voltron and She-Ra, do I need another high quality Netflix cartoon in my life? How interesting can such a pedestrian fantasy premise even be?")

Anything that charms people enough to generate a tabletop RPG tends to get my attention, so with the playtest materials having dropped now, I figured I'd check out the show and see what the fuss was about.

It's bloody amazing. Maybe I went in with fairly low expectations, but it blew me away. Has it really been more than a year since s3 dropped? That seemed like a loooong time for a Netflix cartoon.

I believe the next season will have a time jump (I think I read that) and they came to the natural conclusion of the main story.

I'm wouldn't be surprised if the next season has a subtitle.to the main title. Almost as if it's another series kind of situation.

I must say I was surprised at how comprehensively they wrapped things up in s3, given that they clearly planned to have one season for each Primal Source. Obviously there are a million things they could still explore though - elf types we haven't met being the most obvious and pressing I think.

It's great that they've been renewed for the full run, but it's not as if we've never seen Netflix withdraw a renewal promise, so fingers crossed.

I found the boomerang thing on the Ambler really confusing, because I assumed it was some important plot point before reading that it was just an Avatar reference that I didn't get. I have a bunch of DVDs sitting around but haven't got to it yet.
