Wonderful audio separation and balance.

@  Steevy Maximus : (30 November 2020 - 09:29 PM)

For Transformers The Movie 86

@  Steevy Maximus : (30 November 2020 - 09:28 PM)

I will say, the blu ray remaster, especially the audio is pretty spot on. Watching it on Apple TV has been enlightening.

@  SHIELD Agent 47 : (30 November 2020 - 09:00 PM)

Vode An!

@  SHIELD Agent 47 : (30 November 2020 - 08:59 PM)

I do not overly care for the Bad Batch, but it will be interesting to see what the animated series will bring to the table.

@  SHIELD Agent 47 : (30 November 2020 - 08:59 PM)

Alpha, Delta Squad, Omega Squad, and the Muunilinst 10 are quite the contrast to what we have at present in Disney canon.

@  SHIELD Agent 47 : (30 November 2020 - 08:57 PM)

Who else here read the pre-2008 Clone Commandos and ARC Troopers back in the day?

@  tigerhawk : (30 November 2020 - 05:04 PM)

Monoliths in Utah and Romania.

@  Sabrblade : (29 November 2020 - 05:11 PM)

Also, the face of the black redeco is painted gray.

@  Sabrblade : (29 November 2020 - 05:09 PM)

To be a little fair, the original was also lacking in more detailed color. The Telemocha Series figure fixed that.

@  TheMightyMol... : (29 November 2020 - 05:05 PM)

The unpainted face and all the greys make that look like a knockoff.

@  Sabrblade : (29 November 2020 - 05:01 PM)

One could headcanon this one as such.

There was also an evil-looking black and gray redeco of the RobotMasters toy

@  Arazyr : (25 November 2020 - 11:54 AM)

That's KIND-OF what I consider the Throne of the Primes Primal to be...

@  wonko the sane? : (25 November 2020 - 11:16 AM)

I would buy the hell out a nemesis primal...

@  Bass X0 : (25 November 2020 - 11:15 AM)

I'm surprised there's not been a Nemesis Primal given all the Nemesis Primes.

@  unluckiness : (23 November 2020 - 03:17 AM)

The real Drifts were the Windblades we made along the way

@  PlutoniumBoss : (23 November 2020 - 02:25 AM)

Drift-kun 2 Electric Boobylube

@  ▲ndrusi : (22 November 2020 - 11:36 PM)

I'm pretty sure Drift 2 was Empire of Stone.

@  Sabrblade : (22 November 2020 - 10:06 PM)

I thought people said Prime Wheeljack was Drift 2.

@  tigerhawk : (22 November 2020 - 03:51 PM)

Windblade was Drift.2.

@  TheMightyMol... : (22 November 2020 - 02:44 PM)

Drift with boobs.

@  Rycochet : (22 November 2020 - 11:50 AM)

I can't imagine a live action movie version of Windblade being all that different from Drift. Not my thing, but not the worst thing I've ever seen.

@  Bass X0 : (22 November 2020 - 09:54 AM)

The thought of Movie aesthetic Windblade makes me feel sick.

@  NotVeryKnightly : (22 November 2020 - 08:47 AM)

Though, the fact that Japanese people would pay for Windblade toys in the $30-40 range doesn't mean they'd pay however much MPs are going for now.

@  NotVeryKnightly : (22 November 2020 - 08:44 AM)

Back when I made a habit of checking Mandarake for pre-owned TFs, Windblade's toys went for surprisingly high prices. By which I mean not lower than the original price.

@  tigerhawk : (22 November 2020 - 08:15 AM)

If she's in the next movie you might get her.

@  unluckiness : (22 November 2020 - 07:58 AM)

Japan didn't get most of the IDW comics and are the target market for MP. They basically know windblade from a few crappy pack-in comics and a show that wasn't particularly popular there. Unless they start cranking out Cyberverse MPs, it's not very likely.

@  TheMightyMol... : (22 November 2020 - 04:24 AM)

Again, depends if she's popular enough in Japan to warrant it. Our view of which characters are popular is not the same as Takara's.

@  Bass X0 : (22 November 2020 - 01:53 AM)

So characters like Windblade then.

@  TheMightyMol... : (21 November 2020 - 07:19 PM)

They're complicated and expensive to design. By necessity, they're gonna be restricted to well-known characters who are more likely to sell.

@  Bass X0 : (21 November 2020 - 07:05 PM)

I don’t think Masterpiece toys should be restricted to only show characters.

@  Rycochet : (21 November 2020 - 03:09 PM)

If she wasn't in the Sunbow cartoon, Live Action movie or Beast Wars and can't be repainted from someone else, she's not getting an MP.

@  wonko the sane? : (21 November 2020 - 12:44 PM)

They'll make their money back if they include the metal thong...

@  TheMightyMol... : (21 November 2020 - 12:29 PM)

Is she popular enough in Japan that Takara would even try?

@  Paladin : (21 November 2020 - 11:23 AM)

depends. will that one also have a giant metal thong?

@  Bass X0 : (21 November 2020 - 11:10 AM)

Should there be a Masterpiece Windblade?

@  -LittleAutob... : (20 November 2020 - 12:46 PM)

Posted 31 March 2019 - 12:45 AM

To start, im only posting this here because my parents suggested it, based on the charity work we as a community have done. (if this post is a problem please let me know and im sorry.)
 
3 weeks ago i started having problems with my right foot (this is my bad foot, from all my back injuries, but this was different), so i told my mom to get me the walker because i couldnt use my foot. I took some meds and went to bed and when i woke up saturday i fell into a chair and couldnt move my leg at all.
 
There i stayed for 2 days because no one realized what was actuallly going on, we thought it was just my back being really bad mixed with the flu.
 
Monday i took an ambulance to the hospital and found out i was in Full Kidney Failure, my liver was failing, and i had a mysterious case of Rhabdomyolysis. I also has a mild heart attack and based on how messed up my right arm is, a stroke of some kind.
 
Emergency Dialysis followed, along with tons of tests, and a muscle biopsy of my right leg...So far there are still no answers as to why this happened to me, but the hell thats followed certainly isnt mysterious.
 
I have ZERO use of my right foot, i cannot use it at all. My right leg, from the butt down to the ankle has little to no feeling except pain. And when i say pain, i mean pain like i have never experienced before, especially in my dead foot...its indesceibably intense at times. and my right leg is still swollen as well, which is kinda scary.
 
I am currently in a Rehab facility working on trying to walk and use that leg again...its been a week of that so far and needless to say things look both hopeful and grim.
 
As it stands, my insurance doesnt cover the kind of Hospital Bed i'll need when i eventualy go home, and they dont cover a bunch of other stuff. All we're trying to do is take the burden off my parents a little bit, as we are not people of means (basically dad can afford our rent, bills, and food...wile still haveing a little left over to live on, mom cant work as shes disabled with back problems and a handful of other things, and me, we all know my situation.)
 
I would never come to you guys, hat in hand, like this...but to be honest i'm turning to every possible place i can...and i know the kind of people the Allspark is as a community. So im putting a link to the GOFUNDME page a friend set up for me.
 
I have hope i can survive this...but im scared.

Figured id give a bit of an update:

 

Both of the physical and occupational therapists are saying im doing much better...theyre letting me "walk" around the room alone and go to the bathroom by myself...i "walked" almost 150ft today.

 

Reason i put Walk in qoutes, is because yes, im up and moving, but i still have no use of my right foot, no feeling in it or the ankle, most of my leg is still swollen and numb...and the pain in the foot/ankle/calf is so insane that none of the other milestones matter to me.

 

i havent slept more than 2.5 hours a night in 4 days...because of the pain.

 

im working hard, im trying, im doing everything i can do...but without the feeling or use of the foot, and with the pain at the level its at...i dont know how much i have in me....and that scares me.

I'm guessing you're already on strong painkillers. Some improvement is good though. Hang in there, we're rooting for you.

i been on painkillers for almost 20yrs...and what im on now is barely scratching the surface of what i actually need. what i was on in the hospital was working (15mg oxycodone every 4hrs), but my pain management doctor freaked out at that and put me on 2 10mg percocet a day and 2 time release morphine a day...i might as well be taking ibuprofren.

 

i just want to be comfortable...but its starting to look like that'll never happen again.

If you've been taking painkillers for that long, that may be the cause of the kidney failure. The rhabdomyolysis on the other hand may be due to the back injury you sustained. While most injuries don't cause rhabdomyolysis at such a level, decreased kidney function would mean that the myoglobin couldn't be disposed of and it accumulated in the blood. This in turn would have caused some liver damage. Can't be 100% sure without a full history and record though. 

 

From what you described, it seems that you were in a state of uremia. While it's hell during the condition itself and the immediate recovery period, once your body chemistry starts to stabilize, the symptoms should become more tolerable. Take things slowly, because decreased renal function doesn't cause any symptoms until the body chemistry is completely and totally hugged up. While it's hard to say up to what extent without knowing the state of your kidneys and other comorbid conditions, with proper medication and lifestyle, most patients regain quite a bit of function. 

 

The most important thing right now is to find out the etiology of the kidney injury.

Posted 08 April 2019 - 07:35 PM

from what the doctors have said, even though they have no real idea why it happened (though i think my friend and i figured it out...ill get tothat in a second)...they think its more likely all the OTC stuff i took, like ibuprofren, aleve, asprin, and tylenol. (yes i took that stuff along with the painkillers and muscle relaxers, my pain has been that bad for the past year, even post surgery)...but again, they have no idea.

 

my kidneys and kidney functions are both close to 100% with no permanent damage...same with my liver...thankfully.

 

Ok, so a few months ago they said i had a "fatty liver" and my triglycerides were a little elevated...so they put me on Fenofibrate. since ive been on it, i havent felt great...muscle aches, headaches, kidney pain (i thought were kidney stones)....turns out theres a REALLY RARE side effect of Fenofibrate that does everything that happened to me...but my doctor poo-poo'd that idea....its still the best answer i got.

Monotherapy with fibrates have a very small chance of rhabdomyolysis. Like, so small that theyll write research papers examining that one case.

If you take them with at the same time as statins though, the risk is quite high.

yeah, i know the risk is super low...but ive gotten rare side effects from stuff before, ive gotten rare versions of pneumonia, the issue with my back in the way they've happened and the effects on the rest of my body are sort of a mystery (some doctors have described it as some for of "A Degenerative Bone Disorder", but have never been able to figure it out)...

 

so, for me to get something that has like a .01 chance of happening isn't out of the realm of possibility, lol.

May be an autoimmune condition like polymyositis if there's no kidney involvement (good news that, by the way). The muscle biopsy and bloodwork should confirm or rule that out.
