@  TM2-Megatron : (14 November 2019 - 03:55 PM)

Admittedly, it's been a long time since I've been to a walk-in clinic, as I tend not to get sick (and the one time I do every 4-5 years, I prefer just riding it out at home), but the last time I went I'm pretty sure you could just show up, no appointment. It may be different in Quebec,though

@  Nevermore : (14 November 2019 - 02:36 PM)

One thing to note about health insurance in Germany is that we have a two-class system: mandatory health insurance is basically the economy class, while private health insurance is the business class.

@  Nevermore : (14 November 2019 - 02:32 PM)

My local doctor is actually a shared office with several doctors where you will get randomly assigned to one of the doctors available that day.

@  Nevermore : (14 November 2019 - 02:30 PM)

Also, employers are required by law to cover part of their employees' health insurance fees, so I only have to pay my part.

@  Nevermore : (14 November 2019 - 02:28 PM)

Basic examinations and sick notes (known as "work-inability certificates" in Germany) for the employer are covered by our health insurances by default.

@  TheMightyMol... : (14 November 2019 - 12:02 PM)

Around here, we can go to a walk-in clinic whenever, but might have to wait in the queue until there's a doctor available, which can take hours on a busy day. And then hope our insurance will cover anything.

@  wonko the sane? : (14 November 2019 - 07:38 AM)

There actually are a good number of clinics around here: but the walk ins require an appointment (what?) and are only done once a week. IF you can get an appointment, you see a doctor usually within 40 minutes, but good luck getting the appointment.

@  Nevermore : (14 November 2019 - 03:35 AM)

Depending on the day.

@  Nevermore : (14 November 2019 - 03:35 AM)

We have family doctors (called "house doctors") with regular office hours where you may need an hour or two of waiting time.

@  TM2-Megatron : (14 November 2019 - 12:50 AM)

Two weeks? That seems a little long; are there not a lot of walk-in clinics around you?

@  wonko the sane? : (13 November 2019 - 07:01 PM)

Does germany make it quick and easy to see a doctor too? Cause an emergency doctor visit can take two weeks out here, and an emergency ROOM visit can take 18-24 hours.

@  Nevermore : (13 November 2019 - 06:43 PM)

(Good thing is, under German law, if you call in sick during your vacation and see a doctor immediately, you get to keep your vacation days.)

@  Nevermore : (13 November 2019 - 06:42 PM)

Too bad. My plans wee to do two more overtime hours before having my last day of vacation for the year on Friday. Oh well.

@  Nevermore : (13 November 2019 - 06:41 PM)

So I'm currently on medical leave for a particularly stupid reason: Burned my back with a hot-water bag while sleeping last night. Though the doctor said I'm hardly the first person to have this happen to them.

@  ▲ndrusi : (13 November 2019 - 10:35 AM)

Even if we pretend it's objective truth that they were both bad, then they were bad in very different ways.

@  ▲ndrusi : (13 November 2019 - 10:33 AM)

Sonic's previous movie design looked genuinely bad. The Transformers '07 designs just looked insufficiently like what certain loud and obnoxious parts of the fandom think Transformers are required to always look like.

Sure it made money but that doesn’t mean it has appealing character designs. Lot of god awful fugly faces in the Transformers movies.

@  Otaku : (12 November 2019 - 08:25 PM)

@Liege My issue with Transformers (2007) were elements I thought were unnecessary.  I know it was supposed to just be a joke, but I didn't ever need to hear about "Sam's Happy Time". >.> Which, being in awe of the first "live action" TF-film, didn't even register until I'd already purchased and watched it on DVD a few times (after seeing it in theaters 3 times).

@  Liege : (12 November 2019 - 08:22 PM)

For all the Bayisms in the 07 movie, it was tempered by Spielberg as producer. Designs aside it was an enjoyable popcorn blockbuster about a boy and his first car who happens to be an alien from another planet. They sequels are just Bay going unchecked after he proved how much bank he could bring in.

@  TM2-Megatron : (12 November 2019 - 07:12 PM)

I didn't find the designs in the '07 movie to be that bad, personally. What got really offputting was how Cybertronians in general become such huge a-holes in the later films; the designs were very much secondary to their horrible personalities

@  Sabrblade : (12 November 2019 - 06:59 PM)

And yet, Transformers still broke the bank at the box office, opened up the brand to a whole new generation of fans, shot the brand up to mainstream appeal, and enabled all kinds of new collector-oriented lines and other avenues to come about. Not saying Sonic's movie will do the same for his series, but the 2007 TF movie certainly did more good than harm.

@  Bass X0 : (12 November 2019 - 06:09 PM)

Paramount changed Sonic due to fan backlash but refused to redo Transformers 2007 with new cgi appearances based on their classic forms everyone’s knows and loves, and can relate to. Trailer 1 Sonic is as appealing a design as 2007 Bumblebee...

@  TheMightyMol... : (12 November 2019 - 02:14 PM)

I don't. They're a pain in the ass to repair.

2 inches of snow on the side of the house, 2 feet of snow on the deck. I hate this winter already.

@  Tm_Silverclaw : (11 November 2019 - 11:33 PM)

But that requires actually going IN walmart. ;P

@  Liege : (11 November 2019 - 11:22 PM)

Pro tip for anyone hunting the for the Walmart 35th exclusives: try the seasonal aisles rather than the toy section. I found the display with all the exclusives and a bunch of the reflector wave practically untouched amongst those novelty arcade machines and a bunch of frozen merch.

@  SHIELD Agent 47 : (11 November 2019 - 09:45 PM)

Although that does spark an idea for me. In a new continuity, Censere the Necrobot could be the herald Cityspeaker for Quintessa the Necrotitan just to play on their monikers utilizing Greek for dead, nekrós.

@  SHIELD Agent 47 : (11 November 2019 - 09:26 PM)

I hate to burst your bubble, Maximus Ambus, but 90% of things said in IDW turned out to be amnesiac half-rememberings courtesy of Adaptus or outright lies courtesy of Shockwave.

@  Jenny : (11 November 2019 - 08:54 AM)

The toy's designed to look like Wipe-Out, anyway.

@  NotVeryKnightly : (11 November 2019 - 08:14 AM)

Didn't they try to retcon that into a figure of speech because that connection went against everybody else's long-term plans?

@  Maximus Ambus : (11 November 2019 - 03:53 AM)

There's still some connection given Trypticon was created by Mortilus.

@  NotVeryKnightly : (11 November 2019 - 12:12 AM)

Yeah that toy doesn't exactly look like Necrobot.

@  Sabrblade : (10 November 2019 - 08:24 PM)

But.... it's just "Necro" not "Necrobot".

Chris I have a small request for you.  Once you're done watching Neo, can you do a video on your channel on the basics of Heinrad?

I feel the manga needs to be translated first so Chris has a better handle on that version of Heinrad.
 
 
;)

 

 

LOL, that I'm definitely not promising on happening any time soon.  I already have people requesting stuff like Q Transformers, Beast Wars Reborn etc...  I wish I had more time on hand to translate everything.

Just finished episodes 9, 10, and 11. While 9 still felt like a dud to me, 10 and 11 were both a vast improvement. Both had legit moments of comedy that got me laughing a lot, and that final escape climax of 10 was actually daring and exciting.

 

11 was especially neat in how it gave us, I think, the first ever appearance of an actual toddler Transformer. Any other young TFs of the time were either more like teenagers or like preteens at the youngest. Child Longrack was definitely like preschooler or, at most, a Kindergartner.

 

And Old Man Break said that he was aged up "a few hundred thousand years." This, combined with Child Longrack, would certainly make for some interesting additions to the Transformer life cycle section of this article.

 

 

EDIT: I forgot about the Dinoforce's children from the Victory manga, so we'll just consider Child Longrack to be the first toddler Transformer seen in animation.

I was always kind of under the impression that Maximals and Predacons weren't as long-lived as their ancestors, seeing as how 300 years is a big enough psychological gap for them to treat the events of the Great War as some kind of Arthurian legend; this seems to confirm that, at least somewhat?

Well, that's less about how long the Maximals/Predacons live and more about how the Autobots/Decepticons entered the realm of myth and legend in a mere 300 years.

 

@kary:

 

I've finished the first 2/3rds of the series and it was about like I expected. "Disappointment" is too strong of a word -- I watched the tfcog dubs years ago (they reached ep. 10 or so?), so I knew the gist of the early episodes was "Find the thing!" Part 2's new toy of the week section is entertaining. As a fan of Uprising, I was surprised and pleased to see Crazybolt and Bazooka were introduced together. For some reason, I had a belief that Bazooka, Killer Punch and Hardhead were regular cast members later on, and that Survive led a team that included Sharpedge, Randy, and Bump. Maybe that happens in the final third, but it was good to learn otherwise.

 

Neo suffers from the general problem of having a small group of characters defined by a single trait each. Original BW could be a small group because there was some depth to their interactions with each other, and even some character growth. Original G1 worked with one-note characters because there was a large enough group that they swapped out each episode, and it didn't feel repetitive. "Microbots" had the rough and physical Brawn learning to respect the skills of the studious Perceptor, which was cool...but six episodes in a row of those two playing off each other in the same manner would have become dull.

 

The Neo Maximals are growing together as a team as time passes, which is worth mentioning, but their individual personalities are suffering as a result. As Break learns to be less impulsive and Stampy less cowardly, they're losing the only defining traits they really had. And because of the language barrier (for me at least) it gets harder to tell them apart, especially when the animation isn't showing on -screen who's speaking. I just finished the second clip show, and I really had to pay attention to understand whether the clips were talking or if it was a voiceover from Heinrad or somebody else, because I can't recognize most of their individual voices.

 

Still, it has been a great experience, and I'm glad to finally fill this hole in my Transformers experience.

I definitely agree with you on many of your points.  I think because Taka-chan and I watched these episodes over and over we got used to the voices, so identifying the characters in the clip shows wasn't too hard.  LOL

 

On the point of the Cybertrons/Maximals growing as a team, yes, it happens very subtly, but you can see as the series goes on that they've got each other's back.  Characters like Stampy learn to shine with other skills other than needing courage to take on powerful opponents.  The last 3rd you'll see some additional changes with the Gung-Ho crew as well as a few secrets revealed.  

 

In terms of writing, Neo will never beat the original Beast Wars that we got here in the West.  Naturally it's because the market for the series is quite different and the writing is aimed at a younger crowd.  Still though, it's an interesting take on the franchise and putting a conclusion on the G1 timeline which (at least to me) felt satisfying.

Well considering this is now a sequel to Beast Wars Returns, we can assume they didn't have complete knowledge of the previous generation due to Beast Megatron's virus that wrecked the planet.  I guess we can all make up our own assumptions though.  :)

Episode 25 - 28

 

Holy...S**T.

 

I mean, damn.

 

This series should be in the dictionary, under "tonal whiplash".

 

The Blentrons are genuinely menacing, and the musical cues added to their scenes are fantastic. They just devastate EVERYBODY, even Bio Convoy and Magmatron.

 

And Magmatron? Magmatron. Is. Not. Fooling. Around! He's willing to kill his entire team, and himself, to prevent the return of Unicron. Collecting Angolmois capsules seemed like a bored hobby to him up until now, but seeing the Blentrons capture his full attention is eye-opening. I wish I could've seen this series back when it was intended, but DW and the UT diluted the idea of Unicron's return to a "What, Again?!?"

 

Even now, though...this last third of the series is seriously impressive!

I think this all comes down to how you define a "year" to a Cybertronian. If it's Earth years (and why would it be?), 300 is a short time to forget such a major event as an multi million year war.
But if we're talking Cybertronian years, aka a vorn, it's a much longer time. 1 vorn is equal to 83 Earth years, so 300 vorns is 24, 900 Earth years. And don't forget that BW2 and BWN take place an unspecified amount of time even farther into the future after BW/BM.

This time scale could also help paint a picture of why Gaia, aka future Earth, is apparently devoid of human life. Sometime in the almost 25000 years either something wiped us out, or caused us to move off world.

One Cybertronian year in the Beast Era is a Stellar Cycle, which is 400 Earth days.

 

And, honest question, where exactly was it confirmed that a Vorn was the orbital period of Cybertron? (especially since the originator of the term, the Marvel Comics, explicitly declared its Cybertron to have been knocked out of its original orbit around Alpha Centauri and sent flying through space with no orbital period to determine its year-span anymore)

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.

So just because it got knocked out of orbit they would abandon their time scales?
Hypothetically assuming we didn't die, if the same thing happened to Earth I'm pretty sure we'd still use the standard 12 month, 365 day year as our time frame because that's all we know.

Where was the 400 earth days thing stated?

When did they ever confirm that "Vorn" is not only "Cybertronian years" but that every time a Beast Wars character talks about "years" they specifically meant "Vorns"? Searching on TFWiki, the only time that term was used in a Beast Era context was in Wreckers Finale and when Beast Wars Sourcebook gives the definition.

Larry DiTillio. He gave Ben Yee a bunch of Beast Era time unit conversions that Ben put on the old version of his site years ago.

 

8. How do the Cybertron units of time work out in minutes and hours?

*Note: Answer provided by Larry DiTillio:
Cybertrons have their own lexicon for time, as follows:
  • A Nano-Klik is approximately a second.
  • A Cycle is approximately a minute
  • A Mega-Cycle is approximately an hour
  • A Deca-Cycle is approximately 30 days.
  • A Stellar Cycle is approximately a year.
The Cybertron Stellar cycle is equivalent to about 400 EARTH DAYS, though the standard cybertron day is 20 Earth hours. Months and weeks have no meaning to Cybertrons, though they sometimes use the terms on other worlds (borrowed from their experiences on Earth).

The only ones missing from here are Milli-Cycle (an unknown measure of time mentioned once in Part 2 of "Coming of the Fuzors") and Solar Cycle (introduced in Beast Machines as a Cybertronian day, which DiTillio stated to be 20 Earth hours; mathematically, one Stellar Cycle being 400 Earth days would make it be 480 Solar Cycles).

I think the concept of being educated and being able to educate is something that more people need more of in their lives.

I always chalked that up to translation. The term "years" was used for our benefit, as the characters would be speaking Cybertronian.

I see it like how on Star Trek, when a scene takes place on a Klingon ship with nothing but Klingons in the scene, in universe they would be speaking Klingon, but since 99% of the audience doesn't, the actors speak English for our benefit.

That's how I see Beast Wars, the characters are speaking Cybertronian, but we hear English. Especially in light of the fact that apparently the Earth sector has been declared off limits, so no Cybertronian has been there in quite some time. Why would they speak one of Earth's languages, let alone use it's terminologies?
