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

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

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.

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

@  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"...

@  Bass X0 : (17 February 2019 - 02:04 PM)

I’d like a Siege Thundercracker who has his regular blue colors Cybertronian jet mode which transforms into a robot mode with his Action Master colors. Looks like it could be possible.

Unavoidable back-wings are frustrating, especially since they seem to be done better than any set of Bee back-wings before. I also wonder if he's actually going to use either that gun or that sword in the movie at all.

 

However! For what it is, which is the questionable decision to do an MPM knowing it's based on a design that's going to change, I think it looks really nice. I especially like the way his calves pile up. He has a fairly charismatic face, too. Shame about the fake hood-chest.

I can only surmise that the door wings were dropped really late in production, I wonder why.

Maybe they'll be able to fold down, or something?
"He learned, almost too late, that man is a feeling creature and, because of it, the greatest in the universe. He learned, too late for himself, that men have to make their own way, to make their own mistakes. There can't be any gift of perfection from outside ourselves. And, when men seek such perfection, they find there's only death, fire, loss, disillusionment, the end of everything that's gone forward. Men have always sought an end to toil and misery. It can't be given; it has to be achieved. There is hope, but it has to come from inside, from man himself."

VW Bee is tiny. We've seen that promo render of him sitting on a couch in a house. He fits comfortably into the corner of Charlie's garage. This toy isn't small because it's a small toy, it's small because it's a toy of a small guy.

What do you think his size is relative to something like a couch?

Compared to a couch, large.

 

Compared to Camaro Bee, small.

That orange rust is just weird. And with the teal windows, I'm just reminded of that complaint about how movies abuse those two colors. It's kinda surreal on a Movie toy, sorta like the pixelated spots on Cheetor.

I hate how the paint looks in vehicle mode, but maybe it'll look better in person. Or maybe I'll end up painting him like I did MP G1 'Bee. Either way, that's a niiiice lookin toy.

I think this Bee may actually be too big compared to MPM Camaro Bee, allowing for the usual changes in size in different shots that all Transformers media do.

 

A human (and I know they're not all the same size, but Steinfeld is 5'8" and that's a pretty "standard" human height, and only an inch shorter than Shia LaBeouf's official height) appears to generally come up to somewhere around Camaro Bee's knees or a little lower:

 

Bumblebee+Model.jpg

 

hqdefault.jpg

 

That's pretty consistent with his official height (usually) of 16'-18'. Meanwhile, Charlie comes all the way up to VW Bee's mid-thigh:

 

bumblebee_movie_beetle-e1528904914749.jp

 

video-making-of-vost-bumblebee-travis-kn

 

He appears to be about 12' in Bee Movie, and the MPM's thigh should fall around the Camaro's knee - in other words, this MPM is probably about a head too big.

 

(I apologize for the quality of, like, every image in this post.)
