Best of luck man.

GOOD LUCK, NEVERMORE!

@  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.

I have two Overlords one was faulty with a melted foot and they never took it back but replaced it, I just checked the guns, both the handles seem to be turning white.

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.

@  kizudarake : (29 April 2021 - 04:50 PM)

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)

People are snapping already it seems.

I like the Shattered Glass Megatron's alt mode

@  CORVUS : (26 April 2021 - 07:30 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.

@  tigerhawk : (23 April 2021 - 04:59 AM)

Saint Georges Day.

@  Sabrblade : (21 April 2021 - 11:55 PM)

Glenn Morshower would agree. He goes to auditions with his shoes full of syrup.

@  wonko the sane? : (21 April 2021 - 04:28 PM)

Please, maple syrup can only improve alot of content.

@  Donocropolis : (21 April 2021 - 03:33 PM)

Well, not release it into Canada, no. You'd just get maple syrup all over it.

@  TM2-Megatron : (21 April 2021 - 03:21 PM)

what bothers me most about Canadian rights is that, oftentimes, the rights holders for certain content don't even seem to have any interest in releasing it

@  NotVeryKnightly : (21 April 2021 - 10:46 AM)

It'd be mostly the same even in a world with global copyright law, since even the shortest terms are very long.

@  wonko the sane? : (21 April 2021 - 10:39 AM)

You got me, I just want to watch cartoons without having to pirate them for once.

@  NotVeryKnightly : (21 April 2021 - 08:41 AM)

Also, how would copyright law standardization be enforced? I doubt any country's governments would be eager to start trade sanctions over it.

This isn't something I've missed, but something a LOT of toy galleries miss. Cybertron Leader Class Optimus Prime's chest windows folding out all the way to the sides of the fire truck to become side windows in vehicle mode. I can't tell you how many images of this toy online just leave the chest windows in their robot mode position for vehicle mode, leaving the shoulder joints for robot mode fully exposed when they should be hidden behind the windows.

 

Likewise, an undocumented feature of Animated Rodimus's spoiler not being fully transformed for robot mode. Lots of people leave it where the instructions say, but the instructions in this case are wrong, as they neglect to mention the final steps that see the spoiler's tip unpeg from the piece it's attached to, rotate around 180 degrees, and then be folded down to sit behind the robot mode's shoulders instead of behind the head

They're a Titan/Prime Master seat. They peg into the slots on the back of the little guy's legs.

I think the flap that covers the head in vehicle mode of the G2 Jetfire/Hooligan/R-Blade Cyberjet mold is the single most common mistransformation I see online.  Nobody ever seems to tuck that in before the transformation is done.

RiD01 OP's gun forms a wheel under the cab in vehicle mode.

Similarly, Sibeburn's pistol stows away inside his vehicle mode, I believe on the holster peg on the back of his waist.

G1 Ultra Magnus's helmet pegs onto his chest plate to form guns for the mini-vehicle it makes, and his missile launchers can peg in where his fists go.

The first wave of Scramble City leaders' base modes can further expand Metroplex as a city.

G1 Computron can equip all of the vehicle mode weapons from the limbs.

G1 Powermaster Optimus Prime's large robot head can stow in the trailer in truck mode. Goldbug fits nicely in there, too.

G1 Soundwave's guns are his batteries.

All I can think of at the moment.

I've tried this one several times but could never get it to fit enough to let all the other vehicle mode pieces come together right. So I always ended up just sticking the little gun inside some spare room closer to the side doors.

I've got it stowed away on all the versions I own via the peg on the back, but I only have the Japanese versions and the one Wal-Mart exclusive release, so I'm not sure if that's possible on every one.

Extra one:

All of G1 Abominus' guns can combine a la Baldigus/Ruination.  It's almost certainly unintentional, but there are enough odd 3mm and 5mm pegs and holes scattered across them that it's 100% possible to get two decent rifles out of them (including using Hun-Grrr's rifle).

I only realized this was the case...when the last reissue came out?  Sometime in the last four or five years anyway.

 

I also never realized G1 Wierdwolf had movable shoulder...vent thingies.  Not in thirty years did I realize that.
