@  Paladin : (28 February 2020 - 07:45 AM)

when you use the character as a header image for a frontpage story, i think you lose the right to complain about anyone else "spoiling things."

@  Nevermore : (28 February 2020 - 04:45 AM)

Did I say that? I must have been joking.

@  Sabrblade : (27 February 2020 - 11:46 PM)

And you say you have no sense of humor, Nevermore. ;)

@  Nevermore : (27 February 2020 - 09:07 PM)

Gonzo, start a thread in the main "Transformers Discussion" forum with that information in the title instead.

@  Sabrblade : (27 February 2020 - 08:33 PM)

Gonzo, please don't go spoiling things like that in the chat box.

@  TheMightyMol... : (27 February 2020 - 05:53 PM)

Neat.

@  Darth Gonzo : (27 February 2020 - 05:53 PM)

Tarn is in Cyberverse.

@  Benbot : (27 February 2020 - 10:24 AM)

I really don't like that guy. Show the toys, not your face. I'm tired of looking at him.

@  RCX : (27 February 2020 - 09:25 AM)

Toy Galaxy is excellent.

@  Benbot : (27 February 2020 - 09:03 AM)

I think you'll be save in Greenland.

@  CORVUS : (27 February 2020 - 01:12 AM)

Toy Galaxy is my favorite overall toy-related channel on YouTube.

@  fourteenwings : (26 February 2020 - 11:29 PM)

Last year's coverage via Toy YouTubers was brilliant. However, since YouTube's new (unfortunately necessary) guidelines the companies barely invited any of them back, so all we get is super-popular collector's info.

@  PlutoniumBoss : (26 February 2020 - 09:19 PM)

If it weren't for Toy Galaxy's coverage video, I would not have known about the Defenders of the Earth figures. New toys of Flash Gordon, The Phantom, and Mandrake the Magician? In 2020? I would have said you were smoking something strong.

@  Nevermore : (26 February 2020 - 06:32 PM)

So the question is... has Madagascar closed down all its ports yet?

@  Nevermore : (26 February 2020 - 06:31 PM)

A couple that got infected attended a Carnival event with over 300 people in attendance.

@  Nevermore : (26 February 2020 - 06:25 PM)

So the Corona virus keeps getting closer to where I live. Several confirmed cases in my federal state already.

@  Steevy Maximus : (26 February 2020 - 02:20 PM)

Man, only having collector sites to get Toy Fair news from sucks. Did you know there is a 4" line of kids figures for the new Avengers game coming?

@  Dekafox : (26 February 2020 - 11:54 AM)

Since Omega already exists they could name it Auntie

@  Otaku : (26 February 2020 - 10:07 AM)

Oh, and one last Titan,provided we can fudge things a bit to include a character from Transformers: Animated; how about something at least resembling TF:A Omega Supreme?

@  Otaku : (26 February 2020 - 10:05 AM)

How about they find a way to make a mold they can use for both Broadside and Tidal Wave?

@  Maximus Ambus : (26 February 2020 - 02:13 AM)

Optimus Maximus, the mysterious titan of the Arisen, also Iaconus from Cyberverse.

@  TriBlurr : (25 February 2020 - 12:41 AM)

I think the only other Titan class character that would interest me after Scoponok would be Tidal Wave

@  TheMightyMol... : (24 February 2020 - 07:34 PM)

A Titan would have more room for other toys to hang out, assuming one has the table space for it.

@  Darth Gonzo : (24 February 2020 - 03:32 PM)

Play wise which would be better a Commander Class Aircraft Carrier Mode Broadside or a Titan Class Aircraft Carrier Mode Broadside?

@  PlutoniumBoss : (24 February 2020 - 01:53 PM)

I'd be interested in a deluxe or voyager Fort Max in Armada flashback red-and-green.

@  TheMightyMol... : (24 February 2020 - 10:49 AM)

I'd honestly be more interested in Commander-class Scorponok and Fort Max. I don't have the space for Titans.

@  Maximus Ambus : (24 February 2020 - 10:44 AM)

Make Commander class city bots to annoy collectors too

@  TheMightyMol... : (24 February 2020 - 10:43 AM)

Make two Broadsides. One Voyager-sized that only turns into a jet, and one Titan-sized that only turns into an aircraft carrier. Piss off everyone on both sides of the scale.

@  Rodimus Supreme : (24 February 2020 - 10:41 AM)

Since they seem to also go by the oh-so holy cartoon scale thing, he'd probably be a Commander Class figure.

@  wonko the sane? : (24 February 2020 - 10:34 AM)

Broadside is an aircraft carrier. He should probably be metroplex sized.

@  Rodimus Supreme : (24 February 2020 - 10:21 AM)

Broadside's more of a Commander Class.

@  Darth Gonzo : (24 February 2020 - 04:47 AM)

I think Broadside should be the next Titan Class figure.

@  wonko the sane? : (23 February 2020 - 09:38 PM)

I tan nicely! But also have a family history of cancer... so... yeah, pasty for me it is.

@  Otaku : (23 February 2020 - 04:22 PM)

I really do begin to get sunburned after about 5 minutes of direct exposure, nowadays.  Side effect of already being pasty then going on a particular medication.  Yay?

@  TheMightyMol... : (23 February 2020 - 01:36 PM)

It makes me burn. Accursed daystar.

@  Maximus Ambus : (23 February 2020 - 01:33 PM)

Sunshine on my shoulders makes me happy....

@  Vexwing : (22 February 2020 - 03:26 AM)

I watched L.I.L.Y.Cat on there a while back, it was surprisingly good.

@  Steevy Maximus : (21 February 2020 - 08:47 PM)

@Dekafox, no DTP, but they DO have LILY Cat ;)

@  CORVUS : (21 February 2020 - 08:46 PM)

For me, it's "chocolate therapy".

@  wonko the sane? : (21 February 2020 - 08:32 PM)

Tonight dough owns my soul.

@  CORVUS : (21 February 2020 - 07:28 PM)

Stupid, delicious Ben & Jerry's.

@  Tm_Silverclaw : (21 February 2020 - 06:42 PM)

Ahh. I remember watching Bubblegum Crisis 2020 or whatever.

@  Dekafox : (21 February 2020 - 06:25 PM)

Next you'll say they have Dominion Tank Police and L.I.L.Y.Cat

@  NotVeryKnightly : (21 February 2020 - 06:06 PM)

Bubblegum Crisis, going by several shouts down.

@  Tm_Silverclaw : (21 February 2020 - 05:38 PM)

BGC?

@  Bass X0 : (21 February 2020 - 02:33 PM)

Enjoy the fudgy icing of this Hostess Cup Cake!

@  Telly : (21 February 2020 - 02:31 PM)

harlock is on tubi as well. not dubbed though :(

@  Rhinox42 : (21 February 2020 - 01:19 PM)

Blugh, the english dub of BGC is atrocious.

@  wonko the sane? : (21 February 2020 - 07:02 AM)

I might need to update my software, or they face regional limitations, cause I found no evidence of either.

@  Steevy Maximus : (20 February 2020 - 10:31 PM)

DUDE! Starcom and COPS are on Tubi too!

found a website (https://www.govisithawaii.com/) that has all kinds of articles about what to take, how to pack (the owner of the site only uses carry on luggage for her trips!), where to go and all that good stuff. ive also started getting stuff to take with me. ive got an oahu specific guide book, an underwater camera for snorkling and swimming in the ocean, a selfie stick to get more background in my pics. nobody wants to see ME after all. they want to see the background! and a rashguard shirt for swimming. i never even heard of this kind of shirt, but apparently its just as good as sunscreen, so i wont have to use as much when i wear it swimming. and its what surfers wear so cant be bad. found out about it at the aforementioned website

 

im debating whether or not i should take my laptop...

 

just a little over 3 months to go! cantwaitcantwaitcantwait!

heres what ive got so far:

 

stuff1.jpg

 

1. oahu travel guide

2. selfie stick

3. swim mask for the ocean

4. case to keep my glasses in while swimming, tiny little sunscreen (for use til i get some thats coral safe when i get there), and spf chapstick

5. 2 water-proof bags i can keep with me while swimming

6. nice big backpack to keep all this stuff in (and may double as luggage, depending on how much i can get in there. i think im allowed one carry on bag and a personal item that this could be used for? i found a nice bag that rolls up that i can pack in there and use that for souvenirs and what nots)

7. word search books for the plane ride or sitting on the beach or waiting in a line

8. a pair of water shoes for swimming so i dont cut my feet or damage anything down there

9. a tiny gopro-like camera thats water-proof and has all kinds of mountings and a spare battery (i think i have more on the way. if not i can always get some). also gonna take a back up camera just in case (thats not pictured). i also have a tiny sd card to use for storage. may get a couple more so i wont have to worry about running out of room

10. a pair of flip-flops that i may not take since i have the water shoes now. they were only a dollar so no loss there

 

also not pictured-rashguard shirt and a pair of hiking shoes. wont have to take an extra pair of shoes/boots now if i go hiking. i can wear them all the time and be ready to go #smartthinking ive also got a pair of clip-on shades for my glasses. they arent high end but i figure theyll do the job

 

i dont know if im going to take binoculars. seems whatever i see ill be able to get close enough to take pics of. im still debating on whether to take my laptop. ill probly end up leaving it behind though.

my adventure begins next week!! next tuesday, ill be in indy for the night, and wednesday morning ill be on my way to houston (first stop). then its an 8 hour flight to the beach! i still cant believe im actually doing this. i think ive got everything i need, and im about to practice pack to make sure what im taking fits in my luggage (im using a big shoulder bag. if im very lucky, theyll let it be my carry on. but im not counting on it). ive got a list of places i want to go, and ive looked into some activities.

 

i really want to go ziplining, but im torn on where to go. there the climb works place which looks like a lot of fun. but theres also a place called coral crater. theyve got a climbing wall and other stuff as well. i also wanted to go horseback riding, but im too fat :( im sure ill find something to do instead.

 

anyway, one week to go!!!!

Enjoy yourself. If you get the chance, try a trip to Kuai for a day or two. If not, maybe next time. There's a lot to do in Hawaii. Try for a Lilo&Stitch scenery tour?

Thats an awesome vid :)

So, i made it! Landed about 1pm local time. Got to my hotel around 2 and experianced my first hawaiian rain burst. Lasted maybe a minute, but its happened a few times so far. Nothing to panic about though

Im currently in the international market place, where pigeons are allowed to roam around like theyre shopping! Soon ill be heading to the roof of my hotel to watch the sunset

When i get back, ill post a link to my facebook where im gonna put all my pics

I still cant believe im actually here!

So i go to the sunroof to watch the sunset. Bit of a letdown thanks to a couple buildings in the way, but it was still nice.

So i then remembered i brought binoculars, so i start to go get them. As i turn around theres a magnificent rainbow just starting out! I cant even do it justice with words. But it was right over some houses up on a hill, and there were clouds coming off the mountains and making the sunlight do neat things. Told you i couldnt do it justice lol wish i knew how to post pics here from my phone...

If you're on the mobile version, scroll to the bottom to load the full version. It's gonna take a lot of scrolling, zooming in/out, but you should be able to attach photos directly to the post under More Reply Options (just as long as the pics aren't too big). Alternately, you could sign up for Imgur or another image hosting site, upload all the pics, and post the album link.

Glad you didn't miss the rainbow. Sometimes I have to remind myself that taking a good pic isn't as important as just enjoying the moment with your own eyes.

I have conquered diamond head! Biked/walked there from downtown waikiki (about half of getting there was up hill..), went up and down the trail and biked/walked back to waikiki. Going down the trail and back to the hotel was far easier than going there. Im exhausted and covered in sweat :(
