@  Cyoti : (08 May 2021 - 11:14 AM)

Perfect is the enemy of the good. And it's still better than making him a remold of RTS Jazz as planned originally. Fact of the matter is: Nightbeat is just not a priority with Hasbro.

@  Demovere Xeno : (08 May 2021 - 08:58 AM)

Generations Nightbeat never really scratched that itch sadly; he looked okay, but his transformation was fiddly, his robot mode had far too many bits and pieces flopping around unsecured, and his chest dragged along the surface in var mode. =/

@  Demovere Xeno : (08 May 2021 - 08:57 AM)

I second wishing that we got a Deluxe Nightbeat from TR, mostly because as a kid he was second-in-command to my old Powermaster Optimus for the longest time. =P

@  tigerhawk : (08 May 2021 - 05:41 AM)

Wipe Out and Wilder it coulda been: Wipe Out is down in the dumps because the Scramble City Trypticon was destroyed and left him a drifting to the point he arrives in Legends World, he finds Wilder and both go on a crime spree subverted by their realisation neither gets any joy from it until they stop a violent crook together and become anti heroes. (Bass XO beat me!)

@  Bass X0 : (08 May 2021 - 05:39 AM)

Yes, Nightbeat and Siren would have been easy remolds of Chromedome - just give them new chests and each other's Titan Master heads. Fangry and Squeezeplay would be remolded from Twinferno with their own Titan Master heads. And Horri-Bull would have been remolded from Wolfwire.

@  Rycochet : (07 May 2021 - 05:10 PM)

Surprised we didn't get a full size retool from the monsterbot mold. I'd rather have a CW Ironhide retool though, we need a van Wilder.

@  tigerhawk : (07 May 2021 - 04:19 PM)

I just noticed Wilder was the only omission from Takara Legends.

@  Nevermore : (07 May 2021 - 06:01 AM)

Even more weirdly, it was the early shift where some people had their regular day off for the week, while the late shift was supposed to have full attendance (not counting sick days, vacations and overtime reduction).

@  Nevermore : (07 May 2021 - 01:15 AM)

The weirdest part was that there was a steady influx of voters during the early shift, while hardly anyone showed up during the late shift.

@  Nevermore : (07 May 2021 - 01:14 AM)

Wow, that was a long day. But it's over, and I finally got some sleep. Not particularly happy with the outcome, but then again, my candidates both admit they didn't really campaign that much.

@  Echowarrior : (06 May 2021 - 08:56 PM)

@  Nevermore : (05 May 2021 - 03:14 PM)

The election committee whose chairman I am has been preparing this election since February. There's no real gain for me either way, so I don't care that much for the outcome, but it's going to be a stressful day for me either way.

@  Nevermore : (05 May 2021 - 03:13 PM)

Wish me luck. Tomorrow is this year's supervisory board election at my workplace, and I'm the guy in charge of organizing the election.

pansy. my trypticon AND scorponok took a header from 4 feet up and only had parts pop off that were easily reattached. guess 'cons are tougher...

@  tigerhawk : (04 May 2021 - 04:03 PM)

My TR Perceptor fell and the titan master peg in the leg snapped off. Fortunately I have the Legends one.

@  wonko the sane? : (02 May 2021 - 08:50 PM)

It's a fairly well known fact that "it's a wonderful life" only became popular after it dropped into the public domain. So, yeah, they probably did.

@  SHIELD Agent 47 : (02 May 2021 - 08:29 PM)

I read an interesting observation on Twitter. If it is the natural course of a human to grow into Grandpa Abe yelling at a cloud, but nostalgia also yields rose-tinted glasses for the likes of one's youth, then did Greatest Generation adults bemoan how Baby Boomer children loved box office flops such as The Wizard of Oz and It's a Wonderful Life?

You’re traveling down a rabbit hole I dare not follow

@  Otaku : (02 May 2021 - 09:26 AM)

At the same time, with my almost non-existent knowledge of Japanese and how oddly some things translate, seeing "Gorgeous Giorgios Gorges" made me wonder if that would make it "JoJoJo"... which now has my brain terrified of a weird Bobobo-bo Bo-bobo/Jojo's Bizarre Adventure Crossover. @[email protected]

@  Otaku : (02 May 2021 - 09:24 AM)

It is always weird when things align.  This talk of Gorgeous Giorgios Gorges in the SquawkBox reminded me of King Gorgeous Gorge on the FoxBox.

@  -LittleAutob... : (01 May 2021 - 08:52 PM)

Nice

@  Nevermore : (01 May 2021 - 09:03 AM)

I got one even better: After that character by the name of Gorgeous Giorgios dies in a gorge, they name that whole area after him: The Gorgeous Giorgios Gorges.

@  tigerhawk : (30 April 2021 - 01:56 AM)

Paint apps did slide notably during TR, wave one's Titan Masters had detail but wave 2 onwards was absent of them. Wave 5's Ramhorn, Dreadnaut, Scorchfire and Aimless had detail but Murk and Hazard didn't, can't speak for Flameout as I got Legends Twintwist and Slugslinger.

Anyone here got any g1 jet fire parts for sale?

@  wonko the sane? : (29 April 2021 - 04:12 PM)

Other than a few overly tight joints, the paints apps are my single complaint about the generations line.

@  tigerhawk : (29 April 2021 - 02:25 PM)

I just saw Legends Leo Prime now I wish Titans Return Alpha Trion had a few more paint apps for ship mode.

@  NotVeryKnightly : (27 April 2021 - 04:59 PM)

CORVUS: considering that reply, I'm pretty sure this was just another instance of Bass posting poorly-defined drivel as if it were profound.

@  TheMightyMol... : (27 April 2021 - 04:24 PM)

Given the last year and a half or so, is it any surprise?

@  Bass X0 : (27 April 2021 - 04:12 PM)

I'd like to know what society he's talking about, and what qualifies as "nothing", TBH.

@  NotVeryKnightly : (26 April 2021 - 05:09 PM)

I don't see the point in such a poorly defined "everyone is terrible" statement. He's not complaining about any specific people or specific problems.

@  Tm_Silverclaw : (26 April 2021 - 05:06 PM)

I do not see anything about Bass's comment that felt a need for you to attack him.

@  NotVeryKnightly : (26 April 2021 - 04:35 PM)

Bass: does that "everyone" include yourself or are you just trying to act like you're better than everybody without actually proving anything?

@  wonko the sane? : (26 April 2021 - 04:10 PM)

Mostly it's "oh, don't say that right now" and "better learn when to duck".

@  Bass X0 : (26 April 2021 - 04:05 PM)

There's something to be said about society when everyones just an inch away from snapping over nothing.

@  Steevy Maximus : (26 April 2021 - 02:17 PM)

WalMart is a cruel mistress. Today she runneth over...tommorrow, she'll be barren as a desert.

Dee stood silently at the arrival of one of her countryman. He was handsome and spoke with a strength of tone that made you believe that he would indeed do what he said he would do.

"I'm sure I could take you on quite the fantastic voyage."


Night Cap had been willing to stay quiet, but life doesn't give him many opportunities like this.

"Oh you think you're quite the traveler?"

...

"I'm over here, sir. Down here."

Behold the talking pony. Pawny. Whatever they call it.

"How far away do you think I'm from?"

The man initially seemed annoyed at Kage's interruption but instead focused on Beathra's deduction. "Indeed, Viknadia is the most mighty land there is! It's just that sometimes it is best to ply one's trade elsewhere." When Night Cap spoke, Marguerite practically jumped, "Eek! It talks?" However, the man scoffed, "Bah, tis merely enchanted cattle. What of worth would he say?"

Meanwhile, a much paler man of similar attire walked up to Dee holding a drumstick and munching on something most fowl. She didn't recognize him but he greeted her with a cordial expression. "Oh hey, Princess. Pretty warm down here, eh?" Pausing, he then extended the drumstick and said, "Oops, where are my manners. Want some?"

Kage scowled at the increasingly pompous intruder. Voice no less sharp than before, he said.

"You continue to present a dim view of your land, if your default reaction to the unusual is disdain. Look to your Princess for an object lesson in manners and intelligence."

Turning to Marguerite, Kage said in a much more normal tone.

"Yeah, he can talk. The reasons are... complicated. However, he is far smarter and far less cattle than this 'sailor' would have you think."

Beathra shot Kage a look and continued with the boisterous sailor.

 

"Aye, aye, Lady Destron has told us much of the northern lands and their breathtaking beauty!" he enthused, "One can only imagine what might draw you from them!  Myself, I am but a wandering bard, singer and songwrite, but I know well that, to undertake such a journey, demands the expectation of a bountiful return."

As he listened to Beathras words, Kage understand what the man was doing. He also understood that his own reactions weren't exactly helping. So he caught Beathras eye and nodded silently. Clasping his hands behind his back, Kage waited silently to see what happened next.

"Perhaps another time my friend, though I thank you for the kind offer." Dee gave him an appropriately deep curtsy. But then turning to the other man she put her hand on her hilt.  "A man of your skill and stature should have been sworn into the royal guard by now based on your age sir... that you are not is surely a loss to the guard, what have you found in the southern lands that has kept you here?"   Dee turned back to the second man.  "As your friend says... it is ungoddessly warm here."

The first man seemed to have mounting annoyance but then paused and smiled. Giving an exaggerated bow that was very much a mirror of the one that Kage gave Moscareina, he said, "Forgive my manners, I would hate to sully the name of my homeland. Quite the bountiful return is expected and there are many great wonders to behold out on the water. Speaking of which, it is probably best that we be on our way." Placing something that looked akin to an icy pearl into Marguerite's hand and closing her fingers around it, he started to saunter off. Looking to his friend, he said, "Come along. No need for us to linger aboot." The other man shrugged and followed as he continued munching on the drumstick.

Cattle.

 

It's a good thing Night Cap isn't covered in feathers or he'd be unable to stop himself from puffing up into an angry ball right now. At least he assumes it works that way.

 

As is, only his ears betray his tiny fury to the outside world.

Howard has spent this entire conversation sitting cross-legged in the air, supporting himself with one arm on his staff like a street performer. Given the natural tendencies of humanity to block panhandlers from both sight and memory, it's uncertain whether either of the men noticed him. As he bounces his over to his friends like a misaligned scarecrow, he shrugs. "As dramatic entrances guh, mi ave seen betta."

"Aye," said Beathra, nodding his head thoughtfully, "And it did seem odd... did either of those men seem like they were trying to be gods? We may be on the wrong track, but they are our best option right now, so we should probably keep an eye on them."

"That guy was kind of rude so I don't think I really want his gift. They called you princess so maybe you'll want...

...eek!"

Once Marguerite opened her hand to hand Dee the pearl, she melted into a puddle of water that then instantly disappeared. The two men then started running.

For a second Kage froze, as a person literally melted in front of him. It's not like he hadn't seen some awful things over the years. It was that this was some random act inflicted on a total innocent.

Teeth clenched, Kage drew his blade and charged after the retreating men. Either they would undo what they did (he hoped), or he would make them tell him how.

"Get back here!"

As Kage ran off, Beathra turned to Destron and Night Cap.

 

"Follow him, I suspect he will need help." he said, voice bristling with barely restrained anger.

 

Now turning to Howard, he continued, "Let's you and I head wide and cut them off.  Hopefully they will be too distracted by the bellowing Knight and his entourage to notice that two of their number are missing."

Night Cap doesn't need to be told twice. They're running, he's running. It's a reflex.

 

It does vaguely occur to him that he doesn't know quite what he plans to do if he catches his much larger foes. He'll figure it out when he gets there.

The Viknadian man slowed down until he was jogging in place as he spoke to Kage. "Why are you so mad? Wait, you don't have those things here? That explains a lot. It's just teleportation. Probably looks way worse if you've never seen one of those before.

Unless...she has teleportation allergies. If so...I'm sorry."

Kages rage cooled, turning to an icy fury, but not improving. The fact that Marguerite was alive was good to hear. What had actually been done to her, was not. Kage approached the jogging man, blade up and clearly implying dire consequences should the man do something... stupid.

"So it's kidnapping then, is it? Couched in talk of high adventure bountiful rewards and how beautiful she is. He gave no warning, she had no choice! You cannot just take whatever, or whoever you want.

And no, we don't have those.

Who are you? Who is he?"
