I take objection to the idea that public health is "politics" just because some politicians don't listen to the experts.

@  fourteenwings : (04 March 2021 - 10:59 AM)

I was only replying to the general sentiment of the last three posts before mine.

@  NotVeryKnightly : (04 March 2021 - 10:58 AM)

The person you replied to specifically gave the example of "limiting the amount of people in a facility".

@  NotVeryKnightly : (04 March 2021 - 10:58 AM)

This wasn't about "lock[ing] everyone in the country down".

@  fourteenwings : (04 March 2021 - 10:57 AM)

All I'm saying is there are lockdown and anti-lockdown people and hashing it out in the shoutbox on a toy forum is dumb.

@  fourteenwings : (04 March 2021 - 10:56 AM)

You don't have to lock everyone in the country down to mitigate risks in one population.

@  fourteenwings : (04 March 2021 - 10:56 AM)

Of course older people have it worse, but America is one of those countries where people ship their old people to homes far away from the action anyways.

@  NotVeryKnightly : (04 March 2021 - 10:55 AM)

What ar you even trying to say, anyway? That we shouldn't complain about others increasing the danger more than necessary?

@  fourteenwings : (04 March 2021 - 10:55 AM)

Frankly, there's a lot to say on this issue that can't be encompassed on the shoutbox and I really really don't want to have to deal with politics every single time I check the forums.

@  NotVeryKnightly : (04 March 2021 - 10:54 AM)

To claim that this is about the people in the 20-40 range is also disingenuous.

@  fourteenwings : (04 March 2021 - 10:53 AM)

Essential workers and such are pretty fit on average which is an extra boon for them.

@  fourteenwings : (04 March 2021 - 10:51 AM)

It's not really a personal choice issue, it's a risk versus well, anything you want to do issue. Literally leaving the house results in potential exposure, mask or no. Overall, most of us who hang out here are 20-40, and our survival rate is comparable with some pretty out there statistics.

@  NotVeryKnightly : (04 March 2021 - 10:39 AM)

Anybody who has to go out because of work or groceries or whatever can't just choose to avoid any potential disease-spreaders, for one thing.

@  NotVeryKnightly : (04 March 2021 - 10:38 AM)

Kind of disingenuous to frame this as just a personal choice issue.

@  fourteenwings : (04 March 2021 - 10:22 AM)

This whole "I can't handle people not me having the choice to not put on masks" thing's a bit much.

@  -LittleAutob... : (04 March 2021 - 09:14 AM)

Hey, Florida is one of the most infected states, and we won't even shut down. We may use masks, but restaurants, clubs, you name it, those are still wide open. Also, what's limiting the amount of people in a facility again? :p

No kidding, but right now: unless it's physically on the shelf in front of you: there's no clear idea when it'll be available. And that goes for just about everything.

@  TM2-Megatron : (03 March 2021 - 04:18 PM)

I've heard new appliances are hard to get, for some reason

@  wonko the sane? : (03 March 2021 - 04:13 PM)

Didn't that come right after the 2016 clown panic? No way to make clowns not disturbing at the time, surely.

@  PlutoniumBoss : (28 February 2021 - 04:26 AM)

The clown guise is supposed to lure kids in, it's no good if it looks sus in one glance.

@  PlutoniumBoss : (28 February 2021 - 04:15 AM)

The new one tries too hard to be unsettling from the start. Curry's look is just a plain old clown, until he very much is not.

@  PlutoniumBoss : (28 February 2021 - 04:14 AM)

And Curry has a far more disturbing look at times than the newbie.

@  Sabrblade : (28 February 2021 - 02:22 AM)

And the original was a showcase of Tim Curry's delightfulness as an actor. 'Nuff said.

@  unluckiness : (27 February 2021 - 10:19 PM)

first one was a decent horror flick but the second was a mess plotwise and even the scares were worse

@  tigerhawk : (27 February 2021 - 04:57 PM)

@  repowers : (24 February 2021 - 05:33 PM)

If everyone would just have the exact same opinions as me then we wouldn't have this problem

@  Kalidor : (24 February 2021 - 01:49 PM)

It just depends on what it is. It is preferable to take it to P&R though. But sometimes current news as it's happening is less restrictive.

@  fourteenwings : (24 February 2021 - 12:18 AM)

Huh, good point (x3)

@  ▲ndrusi : (23 February 2021 - 11:46 AM)

Yeah. 1. People treat it like Twitter. 2. There's no "take it to P&R" since there's no P&R for the Shoutbox. 3. There's similarly no way to avoid either subjects or people in the Shoutbox since there's no division and it doesn't respect the ignore function, so people end up engaging when they normally wouldn't.

I definitely would've gotten Red Swoop over Blue Swoop just for cohesive combiner color purposes, but too late.

I know there's no mention on the site but I wonder if these will come with Prime Masters.

 

Edit: Wait never mind, the Throne of Primes Primal PMs are exclusive to the set, so if anything it'd be clear versions of two shelf warmers.

If Red Swoop had gotten an original new name or character I'd be sold in an instant. As just a toy-based recollor... eh, maybe... if the look speaks to me.

-ZacWilliam, I might sell it to myself if I imagine Swoop was once a two-headed robo-pterosaur like movie Strafe and then was accidentally split by some weird McGuffin of the week Superman-style into Red Swoop and Blue Swoop... that would do it. I really need some fictional effort on Hasbros part to sell my things like this.

Heck, if it's toy based Swoop then you can still pretend he's a two headed robo-pterosaur.

Welp, hopefully these will be as plentiful as the Amazon exclusives because I need that Ricochet for Elita-1nfinite.

 

As for Red Swoop? Maybe pre-mutation Ravenus? But then again current Swoop is already in Ravenus colors so maybe this is Swoop and regular PotP Swoop is Ravenus?

Sweet. Now Elita and Inferno don't have to share limbs.

Elita, Firestar, Moonracer, Jazz and Ricochet

Inferno, Alpha Bravo, Rook, Wreck-Gar, and one of the Swoops.

Now just give me four more Decepticon limbs so Starscream and Cyclonus don't have to share.

A TFW2005 user brought up a tantalizing if unlikely idea: perhaps one day in a similar fashion Hasbro could end up releasing the Ironfist version of the Combiner Wars Rook mold.

Y'know for that matter, the unreleased Hoist, Demolishor, and Landfill toolings would also be nice.

Were there any sketches or pictures of these? I've seen the Demolishor one but I've never seen the toolings for Ironfist, Hoist and Landfill.

Hoist I KIND of know from the SG story but I don't know if it was a funpub head or an actual tooling.

We've never seen photos or anything of them, no, we just have the testimony of people who learned about them while working with Fun Pub (and the SG comic art in the case of Rook's Brawl/Ironfistclad head and Trailbreaker's Hoist head). They're all reportedly built-in pretools.

Unlike his fellow Dinobots, Red Swoop does not find revelry in destruction or fighting. In fact he disdains those things and often only follows his brethren so that he can attempt to undo their chaos. Swooping over the red flames left in their wake, he unleashes his water tanks to douse the blaze. He then finds nearby lakes or other bodies of water to refill with a giant gulp of his beak-like mouth.

Red Swoop finds more suitable companionship with Inferno and his troop of rescuers, and has adopted the red from their color scheme as part of his own. While Grimlock japes and derides by saying it makes him look even more like a Dinobot, Red Swoop denies the assertion.

Acknowledging Red Swoop's dedication, Inferno on occasion invites him to form the position of left arm when the rescuers form their combined mode.

I do like the idea of a black/white/gold Jazz mold if that's what Ricochet is, as it would fit with my Starscream team (which at the moment is SG/Gold Starscreams for arms, 'Smokeout' Jazz as a leg, and I'm looking for another).  Having the arms and legs of a combiner semi-match would be a new one for me.

I'm still wanting my Monster Pretenders / Dinoforce retools.

 

I would be extremely excited about Red Swoop were I going to buy a Swoop.

 

(Volcanicus, Randy, unless your Infernocus is extremely misshapen.)

 

Nah, I meant Infernocus.  As much as I don't want to give one of them a Dinobot limb, now that there is an extra I will likely put one with them.

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.
