your mom.

@  Benbot : (15 October 2019 - 08:02 AM)

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)

Yay! Tubi now has the first season of Rescue Bots and the full run of Beast Wars FINALLY available.

@  Benbot : (14 October 2019 - 02:16 PM)

Just like me in a game of Civilization. Don't have gunpowder? Time for your cities to burn.

@  Rycochet : (14 October 2019 - 01:51 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.

@  Paladin : (14 October 2019 - 09:57 AM)

he landed by coincidence in front of long-term residents.

@  Sabrblade : (14 October 2019 - 09:55 AM)

He said the world was round-o! (He said the world was round-o!) He said it could be found-o! (He said it could be found-o!) That hypothetical, calculated, son-of-a-gun, Columbo! (That hypothetical, calculated, son-of-a-gun, Columbo!)

In the year 1492, Columbus gave us the day off skoo

@  Noideaforaname : (14 October 2019 - 08:59 AM)

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.

@  wonko the sane? : (14 October 2019 - 08:29 AM)

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

@  CVReynolds : (14 October 2019 - 08:09 AM)

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

@  Benbot : (14 October 2019 - 07:25 AM)

that's perfect!

@  PlutoniumBoss : (14 October 2019 - 02:22 AM)

@  TheMightyMol... : (07 October 2019 - 11:44 AM)

It's a submarine, we swear!

@  Otaku : (07 October 2019 - 11:26 AM)

@Bass X0 Letting myself comment to say "That's a good one!" and ask "Would a megalodon be a good fit for Megatron?"

@  Benbot : (07 October 2019 - 07:59 AM)

Ohhh good one

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

I now want a Decepticon shark called Megalotron.

@  TriBlurr : (06 October 2019 - 05:47 PM)

Gives them time to screw up the color of his hands. :p

@  TheMightyMol... : (06 October 2019 - 12:33 PM)

His bulk is too great to teleport across such distances.

@  Sabrblade : (06 October 2019 - 11:09 AM)

Cuz it'll take that long to mass produce.

@  Darth Gonzo : (06 October 2019 - 10:47 AM)

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.

Oh, to have a translation of that interview...

This is what Google Translate came up with while missing some of the text (with some editing by me). But I think it gives off the idea.
 

Look for Spotlight & Magnify Generation Select!

Takara Tomy Find out more ... Generation Select, and about the first Star Convoy, interview with Mr. Yuki responsible for development in Takara Tomy.

We talked about the purpose and purpose of the exclusive series of Internet monopoly. _id fa is a series e 痲

I wanted to put out a Star Convoy. Then you should be able to line up nicely. And the base is the Power of the Prime version of Optimus Prime, but this was a toy that evolved from Orion Pax to Optimus alone. So when the project came out naturally I could make it a toy that would evolve from a (G1 original) Convoy to a Star Convoy. I was thinking that. When I actually tried it, it was hard because there were more new parts than I thought (laughs).

 

-What will be the lineup in the future?

From Power of the Prime and the Transformers Siege, we have been developing products as global models in line with Hasbro, which conducts overseas development. Under such circumstances, a plan to commercialize a character exclusively for Internet sales that would not be part of the regular Generation series that decides and expand the theme each year, but that core fans would be happy, was born at the same time as Japan and the United States. Anyway, Transformers has many attractive characters. Hasbro has already started to take the lead (with Generations Selects), but "Generation Select" is a movement to try to do such things together in Japan and the United States.-|-!! | | There are a lot of items from Hasbro coming out like this, and it's mainly a partial (not sure what this means), but we also have a lot of stuff. Was it a Star Convoy display at "An'm Poikomo, N Select"? In selecting a character without being tied to a theme.  Normal generations will continue after "Transformers Siege", but characters that are unlikely to appear so far can be taken out with "Generation Select". Furthermore, while Hasbro is not planning to be a r generation select, "but you do need this character?", The TakaraTomy TF development team proposed and planned it, but this Star Convoy. 

 

Why was the Star Convoy chosen?

That is another story a bit (laughs). It has not been decided yet how to put that out. Oh, it is still big that we want to know what your opponents are, even as we are displaying in a place like Wonfest. So I tried to put a little guerilla (?) on what kind of reaction could be realized. Information on the global model is always preceded by Pan (?), but I'm glad I've been able to pay attention to the information that we send from Takara Tomy. If you hit it, it was a character that was warmed up as an idea in a project that was on the extension of "Legends." Finally! |

Not sure if he was talking about the A-Convoy (Armada Convoy) in the last question, but the question itself is specifically about Star Convoy, so...

I love Google Translate.  So many secrets man was not meant to know.  So, would "COMPOST NOT MUNKY!" be a protest about the advantages of using compost as the base for your robot evolution, instead of monkeys, or is it a specific instruction not to put monkeys in your compost?  Some sort of organic gardening thing?

This is what it says about Turtler (and what I can get out of it):

 

You can see that the base is the Power of the Prime version Terrorcon Hun-Grrr, but it does seem only partially.

 

Among the items whose silhouette has been released as the next lineup, the scoop of the prototype photo of the Turtler is released !!  Core member of the deep sea united soldier King Poseidon. Given the remakes of Scramble City soldiers in Unite Warriors and Power of the Primes, expectations have risen for other Seacons. Pay attention for a the follow-up!

I had Google Translate try to translate the blurbs about Star Convoy.  One it wasn't able to detect a full sentence, so I didn't include it here.

 

Text regarding the vehicle:

A vehicle mode is a tractor trailer truck of Convoy. The appearance is almost the same as the Power of the Prime version of Optimus, but it has been updated with details such as the wheels.

 

 

Regarding the robot mode (this is rough):
 

A lot of the front part of the body has been replaced with new parts to realize the styling of the Star Convoy.  It's intriguing how Convoy's guns that can combine with the Matrix, especially in terms of a posing Star Convoy.

 

 

 

General blurb about the figure:
 

TakaraTomy Mall Limited Item GENERATION SELECTS Star Convoy Release Date: Late September Price: 9,180 yen / Order Period: May 8 13:00.  Convoy powered up by the power of super energy "Zodiac" entrusted from Dai Atlas.  "Now, I'm going to the present day !!" In the domestic development, what took place in 1991 following "Transformers Zone" was a hit hit on the theme of the return of Cybertron's first Supreme Commander Convoy.  Star Convoy was selected as the main product of the GENERATION SELECTS, and the power of the Prime version Optimus Prime was used as the base to recreate the evolution from the Convoy to the Star Convoy. We are updating the design of the Star Convoy including the face, shoulder guns, chest star and more. The chest can accommodate a silver-plated, newly created JMatrix. Let's enjoy the red commander class following the Legends version of Dai Atlas! In addition, 30 times (equivalent to 2550 yen) of regular points will be awarded as a "GENERATION SELECTS" introduction commemorative campaign!
