Does that hold true for the accent of any British Allsparkers here?

@  SHIELD Agent 47 : (21 August 2019 - 01:56 AM)

I was reading some GoBots + Transformers discussion on Twitter and saw a British user point out that "BuggyMan" can sound like "boogeyman".

@Sabrblade Part of me wishes I had purchased the coffee cup with that comic when it was for sale.  The rest of me knows I didn't have the money for it. XD

@  Sean Whitmore : (20 August 2019 - 07:42 PM)

Runner-up dumb idea: A Bizarro-like clone of Hot Rod named Not Rod.

@  RichardT1977 : (20 August 2019 - 06:25 PM)

One of the dumbest TF ideas I ever had: Hot Rod (by whatever means) produces a son, who is named "Go-Cart".

@  TM2-Megatron : (20 August 2019 - 06:06 PM)

In its current form, DS9 is eventually going to fade from the public consciousness. Even on modern top-of-the-line displays, those old SD masters look like trash, and there's only so long younger generations will be able to stomach them. I can only imagine how they'll look when everyone has ultra-short throw projectors casting 120" images on their walls

@  TM2-Megatron : (20 August 2019 - 06:05 PM)

It's definitely offputting, but Trek is one property I'd be willing to hold my nose and open my wallet for. I care far more about DS9 being available in the long-term, and for future generations, than my distaste for corporate greed

@  Rycochet : (20 August 2019 - 05:39 PM)

'Pay up now and fund this remaster we'll be able to profit from for decades, as this will be your only chance to get that show you like on BluRay... Until the superdeluxe re-release with even more stuff and a metal box.'

@  Rycochet : (20 August 2019 - 05:14 PM)

Stuff they're intending to remaster anyway for their streaming service would become crowdfunding projects.

@  Rycochet : (20 August 2019 - 05:09 PM)

I love DS9, but there is something offputting about giving money direct to Viacom for a project like this, probably because it would set a bad precedent. Given how moneygrubbing they are, it would quickly become their go-to solution for any old show they want remastered rather than dipping their hands in their own deep pockets.

@  TM2-Megatron : (20 August 2019 - 02:48 PM)

A crowdfunding probably wouldn't be that outrageous. The DS9 Documentary "What We Left Behind" that was recently released on blu-ray managed to raise nearly $650,000 on IndieGoGo. Imagine how much fans might contribute if it were guaranteed the remaster would happen provided the goal was reached.

@  TheMightyMol... : (20 August 2019 - 04:10 AM)

Let me call on my friend Dr Rockso, the Rock 'n Roll Clown. (He does cocaine.)

@  Nutjob R/T : (20 August 2019 - 12:48 AM)

New crowdfunding project: We need to get enough nose candy for the Paramount execs to keep 'em up long enough to get DS9 squeezed out

@  TM2-Megatron : (19 August 2019 - 04:36 PM)

They're hideously cheap. I'm just glad some decision maker in the upper echelons stayed high as a kite for long enough for us to get TOS, TNG and TAS on blu-ray

@  Rycochet : (19 August 2019 - 04:16 PM)

Paramount are kinda cheap and Ds9 isn't popular enough for them to go all out on a remaster.

@  TM2-Megatron : (19 August 2019 - 03:37 PM)

Or hell, they could just shorten a season of Discovery by 2-3 episodes and that'd pay for the DS9 remaster in full (assuming the 8 to 8.5 million per episode for Discovery that was reported a while back is accurate)

@  TM2-Megatron : (19 August 2019 - 03:32 PM)

Redoing some of the more simple effects like phasers and transporters and whatnot (basically what they've already had practice doing for TNG)

@  TM2-Megatron : (19 August 2019 - 03:30 PM)

They could scan and rebuild the film elements, and then upscale the original CGI only (provided it still exists as separate footage)

@  Dekafox : (19 August 2019 - 02:33 PM)

Basically its in the same situation as DS9 IIRC with loss of models and how the CGI was applied to the existing footage.

@  Dekafox : (19 August 2019 - 02:32 PM)

Not gonna happen unless they recreate all the CGI from scratch, unfortunately. Or just upscale the broadcast masters, which would be basically pointless.

@  Maximus Ambus : (19 August 2019 - 02:16 PM)

Babylon 5 must come to Blu Ray.

His work is never done.

@  Pennpenn : (19 August 2019 - 03:06 AM)

Everyone quickly gets sick of flubbing the name and collectively agree to just call the combiner "Roadworks"

@  Sabrblade : (18 August 2019 - 09:34 PM)

For some reason, I've always wanted to see a "Menastator", all five Stunticons and all six Constructicons in an 11-piece combiner.

@  Maximus Ambus : (18 August 2019 - 01:35 PM)

Dunno what we'd call a Megatron combiner, we almost got a Megastator in IDW but nothing in Combiner Wars.

@  Paladin : (18 August 2019 - 01:30 PM)

somehow read that as "Megachronic." wonder if Decepticons get the munchies...

@  TheMightyMol... : (18 August 2019 - 11:30 AM)

Skywarp can barely form a coherent sentence half the time.

@  Maximus Ambus : (18 August 2019 - 11:24 AM)

If Cyclonus combines into Galvatronus, does Skywarp form Megatronic?

@  Pennpenn : (18 August 2019 - 09:12 AM)

There's something weird about starting to type Good Omens into a media store's search bar and having it come up with Queen's greatest hits compliations.

@  Tm_Silverclaw : (18 August 2019 - 12:07 AM)

Well then they need to re-release Vector Prime. :D Of course I would accept Vector Prime Headmaster with Alpha Trion as the head.

@  unluckiness : (18 August 2019 - 12:05 AM)

That said, the bendy sword is ridiculous.

@  unluckiness : (18 August 2019 - 12:05 AM)

I dunno, the old one is still pretty good by modern standards and the clunkiness is somewhat in-character.

@  Tm_Silverclaw : (17 August 2019 - 08:37 PM)

We need a new vector prime

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?
