*walks out on stage* Umm, I don't know how to tell everyone this, but Conway Twitty's been dead for nearly 30 years, now. So...*dances awkwardly as distraction*

@  tigerhawk : (21 January 2021 - 10:47 AM)

Oh my god... I forgot entirely about yellowstone.

@  tigerhawk : (21 January 2021 - 03:32 AM)

Until the third civil war. Or yellowstone, whatever's good.

@  Nevermore : (20 January 2021 - 06:01 PM)

Or is the wound the Earth healing.

@  unluckiness : (18 January 2021 - 03:32 AM)

Healing is just destroying the wound

@  PlutoniumBoss : (17 January 2021 - 06:08 PM)

But eventually destroys everything.

@  TheMightyMol... : (11 January 2021 - 06:15 AM)

@  tigerhawk : (11 January 2021 - 01:57 AM)

Or they could make the other Micromasters of the teams they half assed.

@  ▲ndrusi : (10 January 2021 - 11:20 PM)

There should be a box set of eight Stakeouts.

@  Bass X0 : (10 January 2021 - 08:27 PM)

There should be a box-set of Thrust, Dirge and Ramjet. But I'm not expecting it.

@  Nevermore : (10 January 2021 - 07:51 PM)

I hope there are re-releases this year!

@  tigerhawk : (10 January 2021 - 03:59 PM)

I hope there's rereleases of Earthrise Ramjet, Dirge and Ratchet next year.

@  wonko the sane? : (08 January 2021 - 07:51 AM)

Oh no, he was loved. I'd argue he could have had a better life physically, but he was loved. Deeply.

@  Telly : (08 January 2021 - 01:42 AM)

@  Echowarrior : (07 January 2021 - 11:10 PM)

@  CORVUS : (07 January 2021 - 03:04 PM)

@  wonko the sane? : (07 January 2021 - 10:45 AM)

So: My sisters dog just had a heart attack and died... while her 12 year old son was walking him. Welcome to 2021 everybody!

@  Dekafox : (04 January 2021 - 07:24 PM)

Except they're Deceptican'ts usually.

@  Devcon : (04 January 2021 - 05:17 PM)

Depending on which dub: Either Decepticons or Decepticans.

@  Bass X0 : (04 January 2021 - 05:03 PM)

Deception is the French word for disappointment. What does that make the Decepticons in France?

@  Echowarrior : (03 January 2021 - 11:29 PM)

We're just tiny little specks, about the size of Mickey Rooney.

@  TheMightyMol... : (03 January 2021 - 04:33 PM)

It's a great big universe, and we're all really puny.

That's orbiting at nineteen miles a second, so it's reckoned, a sun that is the source of all our power

@  Rycochet : (03 January 2021 - 01:30 PM)

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.

Theres a botbots sticker/data book up for preorder on Amazon. Unclear if this is the same as the ultimate guide book shown at Toyfair or something different but it only contains data on 123 Botbots (probably just Series 1+2 and maybe the baseball and Kikme the soccer ball who were supposed to be in Series 1)

Radio Free Cybertron got one of the Series 2 Botbots Challenge cases and have pics of it and the contents on their Twitter feed. Here's the catalogue/poster included (which fills in a few names we didn't know):

I like how the box art on the big case seems to be drawing Short Edge as a Super Hero with a cape.

Everybody I saw was guessing Grrrr'illa Grimes was a gas container, but no, looking at the catalogue he is 100% Orange Goop hand cleaner.

-ZacWilliam, which is 100% something you buy at that sort of store if you work in a wood or mechanical shop environment.

The big-fisted orange guy is Grrr'illa Grimes, in the Shed Heads. Looks like a big jug of cleaning fluid or something? One of the types that you pump up and then use an attached hose to spray stuff down.

Hashtagz is a repaint of the laptop with what looks like Botbot 'stickers' slapped on :D

I really like Bogus Pocus the magic book, and Rebugnant the insect repellant spray.

Okay then, still need 8-pack Lost Bots info, buuuuut

 

https://docs.google....t#gid=772655682

 

So far, the must-buy packs in Series 2 are...

 

Music Mob w/ Grampiano

Spoiled Rottens w/ Big Cantuna

Spoiled Rottens with Mocklate

Swag Stylers with TP Itch

 

And single-packs Must Turd, Sir Botcha, Ice Sight, The In-Sole, Tropic Guzzlerush, Sandy Man, Javasaurus Rex, King Candyhooves, Sippyberry, Glitchface, Techtonic Sonic, TV Cop, Captain Swoon

 

I'd bet money Hamurai will also be a single-pack-only Bot, as he's one of only two new-mold Lost Bots in that assortment, and Overpack is also in one of the Music Mob sets (the one with Grampiano).

Okay, so the sticker book says it's got 163 profiles.

 

Series 1 & 2 only add up to 161 Bots tho. Buuuuuuuuuuut Kikmee and Strike Four were moved out of Series 1 for some reason or another, so they're likely in the book.

 

And this adds more weight to the Bakery Bytes/Lawn League sets being a store exclusive.

Hmmm:
"BOGUS POCUS - Fantasy book wizard"

There's so many ways to parse that. Is he a robot who fantasizes being a wizard from a book? Or is he the sort of Wizard you find in a Fantasy book? And if the later is he a Harry Potter style wizard or more of a Gandalf? Or is he a DnD style Wizard who needs a spellbook (which he is) to be a wizard?

-ZacWilliam, and would the latter make him actually a Sorceror since the source of his magic is inside him? Is he duel classing?
