What's your favorite Paleolithic megafauna?

@  TM2-Megatron : (14 October 2019 - 10:06 PM)

Together with the Rhino G1 sets, probably the most expensive DVDs I ever bought

@  TM2-Megatron : (14 October 2019 - 10:01 PM)

I've still got the age-old Rhino sets

@  Telly : (14 October 2019 - 09:09 PM)

i didnt find that at any of the ones around here, so i had to settle for seasons 1 and 2 of duckman for $3

@  Steevy Maximus : (14 October 2019 - 07:45 PM)

Heck, I got the season 2/3 set for $3 (?) from a Dollar General discount bin :p

@  TM2-Megatron : (14 October 2019 - 07:29 PM)

The series is pretty cheap on DVD, too, which at least will work internet or no. The complete series set seems to be OOP, but there's a Season 1 set as well as a combined 2 & 3 set.

@  wonko the sane? : (14 October 2019 - 06:10 PM)

Woot! Beast wars!

@  Steevy Maximus : (14 October 2019 - 06:08 PM)

He dubbed the peoples that saw him as bad news cannibals and savages before enslaving and wiping them out too.

@  wonko the sane? : (14 October 2019 - 01:40 PM)

And if they had been unfriendly: he would have simply slaughtered them with diseases they couldn't fight, and technology they couldn't match until they as a people did not exist. There's something about european backgrounds that drive us to exploit.

@  Rycochet : (14 October 2019 - 11:02 AM)

He described the peoples he encountered as some of the most friendly and giving in the world, so naturally, he ate all their food, enslaved them and put them to work looking for gold that did not exist, until they as a people did not exist.

How often do people actually celebrate Columbus or the Pilgrims? Usually it just feels like celebrating the first break in the school year and a nice dinner with the family.

You've got like two more weeks until the american thanksgiving. Canadian thanksgiving is literally a harvest festival.

Hey, everyone. Come together to enjoy this national holiday made to celebrate a mass-murderer who never set foot in the USA. What fun!

@  Bass X0 : (07 October 2019 - 07:39 AM)

From Hasbro Toy Group. This special edition Generations Selects WFC-GS06 Smokescreen figure portrays the classic G1 character with a G1-accurate head sculpt. Figure converts to a Cybertronian alt mode in 14 steps, deco'd to reveal how Smokescreen would have looked on Cybertron. The deco incorporates Cybertronian numbers into his classic exterior.  With this Smokescreen figure, fans can add to their Praxus-native collection. Smokescreen joins Barricade and Prowl (each sold separately, subject to availability) as the third Praxian character designed in his native Cybertronian form. The Smokescreen figure comes equipped with a W-45 Acid Pellet Blaster accessory and 2 W-50 Volt-Beam Cannon accessories that can mount on his shoulders or the hood of his vehicle mode.
In Shops: Oct 30, 2019

Looks nice. Needs more white.

The red looks fine in car mode, but I feel it should extend more in robot mode.

I've been told that "all Datsun guys are from Praxus" is a common piece of fanon of the same heritage as "Seeker trines" and "prankster Sideswipe", so it's interesting to see it being used officially by Hasbro!

I like the amount of blue in robot mode. Smokescreen never made much impression on me until the Alternator toy, so I expect a lot of blue.

How does this work? What Cybertronian agents, presumably Pretenders, infiltrated the likes of Electramotive, Alitalia, and Martini Racing so this 4 million year old alien racing livery would be ready?

Funny that.
 

Bluestreak's toy bio and Universe profile state that his home city was destroyed by Decepticons, with Universe adding that Bluestreak was the lone survivor, but neither give the city a name. The same is true for the Dreamwave Generation One continuity, including the More Than Meets The Eye books. It was Scott Ciencin who established in Hardwired that Bluestreak's home city is Praxus. This likely was because at the time "Hardwired" was written, only a few locations on Cybertron had been given names and of them only Praxus had the properties to be Bluestreak's home city. The fact Bluestreak's moldsake Prowl was already established to be from Praxus may have contributed to the decision. In any case, whether future continuities will keep to this or reassign Bluestreak's home to another location is yet to be seen.

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.

Bluestreak should be from somewhere else correct? With the whole soul survivor of his city.

He's the sole survivor of the destruction of the city. That doesn't mean everyone else from Praxus is dead, it means everyone else who was in Praxus when the attack happened is dead. There could be thousands of guys originally from Praxus who moved away or happened to be out of town that day (and, conversely, a bunch of now-dead folks from other places who were in the wrong city at the wrong time).

I think there might be more contrast between the black and dark grey in person - I'm not sure this isn't a prototype of some description. (His W-50 Volt-Beam Cannon accessories look super 3D-printed to me.)

 

But honestly, I kind of like it. It gives a really strong contrast between his brighter, redder car mode and his darker, bluer robot mode.

How does he have Bluestreak's weapons? Those are very specifically Smokescreen's cartoon shoulder cannons, with a boxy rear section and raised up on trapezoid things. Bluestreak's cartoon cannons are entirely round and sit flat on top of his shoulders.
