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)

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.

@  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.

@  Paladin : (17 February 2019 - 11:57 AM)

The cow was slaughtered in the abattoir.

@  wonko the sane? : (17 February 2019 - 08:53 AM)

It's not a pretty name: abattoir is literally just the french word for slaughterhouse.

@  PlutoniumBoss : (17 February 2019 - 08:46 AM)

Giving it a pretty name won't make it a pretty place.

@  SHIELD Agent 47 : (17 February 2019 - 02:45 AM)

I do believe there is an aphorism about the U.S.A. and yogurt being different because after 200 years the latter will have a culture.

@  Maruten : (16 February 2019 - 11:30 PM)

There's another word for "abattoir"?! Honestly you people, "slaughterhouse" is a bit on the nose.

@  SHIELD Agent 47 : (16 February 2019 - 10:09 PM)

I learned this week that the French-style term abattoir is prevalent in the UK/Commonwealth in place of where U.S.-American Anglophones would say "slaughterhouse". Fascinating.

@  wonko the sane? : (16 February 2019 - 07:31 AM)

Haven't given it to him yet. Not sure when I will, but soon. Wah Wah is what he calls any vehicle with a siren, and the little bugger just LOVES firetrucks. So I got him a rescue bot heatwave.

Is Verbesserschlimmerung a change that was intented to make things worse but made them better instead?

@  wonko the sane? : (13 February 2019 - 07:35 AM)

We have a similar word in english "government".

@  Nevermore : (13 February 2019 - 06:05 AM)

The meaning of this word is: A change that was intended as an improvement but ended up making things worse.

@  Nevermore : (13 February 2019 - 06:04 AM)

It's a portmanteau of "Verbesserung", which means "improvement", and "Verschlimmerung", which means "worsening".

@  Nevermore : (13 February 2019 - 06:04 AM)

Your new German word for today: Verschlimmbesserung.

@  TM2-Megatron : (12 February 2019 - 02:17 PM)

Fortunately it's been long enough now that the possibility exists another label like Shout Factory or Arrow could pick it up and give it an updated release.

@  TM2-Megatron : (12 February 2019 - 02:16 PM)

It's the same with their Dawn of the Dead blu-ray, and several others

@  TM2-Megatron : (12 February 2019 - 02:11 PM)

In Volcano's case it isn't so much a case just of amazon or eBay sellers... it looks like rather than releasing it directly, Fox licensed it out to Starz/Anchor Bay, and it's subsequently gone out of print

@  SHIELD Agent 47 : (12 February 2019 - 01:28 PM)

There's Amazon sellers for you.

@  Telly : (12 February 2019 - 12:49 PM)

thought about buying volcano on bluray last night, until i saw the price on amazon: $135. the used ones arent much cheaper at $90. i know the 3p sellers can set any price they want, but come on. $90-$135 for a 20 year old movie that was only so-so?

@  unluckiness : (12 February 2019 - 05:12 AM)

GOt my hopes up there for a bit. Last I heard it was nebulously in 2019.

Hmm.

 

Megs looks the best so far, with Reflector a close second. I'll probably STILL get Starscream, but I really hope he hides the undercarriage better than the POTP version does.

 

EDIT: OK, the robot modes for Soundwave and Shockwave look pretty good, too, and I actually like Shockwave's space submarine mode, but boy does he not integrate that extra stuff as well as UM does. No comment on Soundwave's.... "alt mode". Maybe we can still twist it into a lamp?

Seriously, you get a regular Shockwave robot riding on some sort of battle pod thing, that he can then combine with into a ridiculous Brute Mode with extra gun arms and stuff! That's fantastic! And his spaceship mode looks great too.

I think they could have made the top of the Tetrajet longer (to better match the cartoon) and still have it split down the middle (as it looks like it does) for robot mode without compromising Starscream's silhouette.

I have eagerly awaited the tetrajet. I do not like this tetrajet. It looks like those perfunctory Star Wars Transformers alt modes. In both modes he lacks drama.

Reflector is clever execution of a depressing idea. 1/3 of something only an obsessed 80s kid would recognize as being kinda sorta an old SLR on a tripod. I try not to get too down on the mining of the 80s, but is this all that's left?

POTP Shockwave looks nice. But weird! His
V-Star is made from his own corpse. Maybe he met himself from another universe, killed him, and made a little thing.

Soundwave's blue nothing slab mode actually appeals to me somehow, but it is hurt by Refraktor also being a blue nothing slab.

Megatron looks legit good!

I was thinking the same thing! I love all the bot modes, but not really into many of the alt modes for the cons except Reflector. Reflector is a must get! My question about that soundwave is does he have any of his minions at that scale?

Megaton looks the best, but I cannot get excited for another G1 Megatron. I just don't like the guy. He's boring.

Shockwave's regular mode not looks nice, but the combined form just looks like he's trying to make himself bigger to scare away a predator.

The Tetrajet looks more like a BSG Viper that transforms into G1 Starscream.

I guess at this point I'm in for the smaller dudes and a couple of Autobots, but that looks like it.
