It's funny that a friggin' anime about zombie idols and an anime about a school of anthropomorphic animals can have really positive trans characters WITHOUT a press release about their inclusion in the series prior to the episodes airing or having the creators announcing it on social media and patting themselves on the back for doing a thing.

Vegan meat needs bacon

@  Paladin : (18 February 2020 - 08:43 PM)

vegan meat must taste delicious. they're grass-fed and regularly exercised....

@  wonko the sane? : (18 February 2020 - 06:57 PM)

Vegans are better than kids if you don't talk to them. They'll keep the lawn trimmed anyway.

@  TheMightyMol... : (18 February 2020 - 06:02 PM)

Do you want vegans? Because that's how you get vegans.

@  CORVUS : (18 February 2020 - 04:33 PM)

Hook up your sprinkler system to a canister of healthy organic carrot-juice. The kids won't be able to get off your lawn fast enough.

@  TheMightyMol... : (18 February 2020 - 03:59 PM)

Just use the hose.

@  wonko the sane? : (18 February 2020 - 03:52 PM)

Ask bing. It'll be a FAR more effective answer.

@  TrnsfrmGod : (18 February 2020 - 03:26 PM)

Google, how do I get those durned kids off my lawn?

@  TrnsfrmGod : (18 February 2020 - 03:26 PM)

@  NotVeryKnightly : (16 February 2020 - 05:21 PM)

Japan seems to have a tradition of murder things where cellphones facilitate the killing instead. Like King's Game and Doubt.

@  TheMightyMol... : (16 February 2020 - 05:17 PM)

Or there's just conveniently no reception, or all of their phones are dead at the same time. Or they're just stupid and forget about them.

@  Patch : (16 February 2020 - 04:41 PM)

Now the slasher villain has to go and knock over the nearest cell tower before butchering horny teenagers.

@  TheMightyMol... : (16 February 2020 - 03:54 PM)

Think of all the horror and mystery movies that involve the bad guys cutting the phone line. Now think about how many people don't even have a land line to cut anymore.

@  Telly : (16 February 2020 - 03:47 PM)

its like that scene in commando. the bad guy has to get to a phone to call the big bad to tell him arnold isnt on the plane. that wouldnt happen today

@  Rycochet : (16 February 2020 - 03:18 PM)

Watching early episodes of the x-files will make you feel super old once you start to notice the techology they use, and the technology they lack.

@  TheMightyMol... : (14 February 2020 - 02:49 PM)

Makes you feel old, don't it?

@  Maximus Ambus : (14 February 2020 - 02:38 PM)

While browsing Youtube vids I read these comments: 'The X Files is such an underrated show' and another 'Brent Spiner is a underrated actor' I want to punch something.

@  Otaku : (14 February 2020 - 10:41 AM)

So is that an occasion for congratulations or condolences, Telly?  I see it as a good thing, but that is a matter of personal preference; easier for me to keep straight who is who when the names don't change. XP

@  Telly : (14 February 2020 - 12:48 AM)

damn. ive been going by "telly" on here for nearly 14 years...

@  TM2-Megatron : (11 February 2020 - 08:06 PM)

I've seen it. It didn't really deliver on the title

@  Paladin : (11 February 2020 - 05:28 PM)

we don't need to see that. we're living it.

@  Maximus Ambus : (11 February 2020 - 03:42 PM)

Anyone seen an old British movie called 'The Earth dies screaming' it's like a Doctor Who serial minus the Doctor.

@  TriBlurr : (09 February 2020 - 11:58 AM)

Optimus looks like his Siege figure. Maybe this will be canon to the Transformers ongoing comic series at the moment.

Due to work I went to cover a company making something new. By sheer luck they work with another company and in the back that company was making a “giant robot dinosaur transformer costume”

I asked if it was a T-Rex and my point of contact said yes. I thought he was talking about Grimlock. He is not a Transformer fan but a huge Star Wars nerd.

The guy making this costume is also a big Star Wars nerd.

Anyway the costume was commissioned by Hasbro. Supposedly to be worn and unveiled at SDCC.

I only saw it when they just had one leg finished and the basic skeleton of the costume. The maker sent me this pic since I was unable to see its final form before going on a work trip.

The costume can transform into the city. Full Tilt is a remote controlled car. I assume so it can detach from the chest and drive around the ground.

The costume was made from the CAD drawing of the Titans Return Trypticon toy. They scaled up the sections like the legs and CNC milled forms to vacuum form the parts like the legs, arms and head.

If any of you are at SDCC please keep an eye out for this. I was told it will be entered into Masquerade as well.

 

 

 

Based on TR Typticon? I feel sorry for the hip of the person they get to wear it...

The right side of the Micromaster box is just about legible in this photo, and it specifically lists Nightflight and Skyhopper

Hasbro (2007): Sorry Fans, we had to give Thundercracker to BotCon because we dont have plans for another $10 Deluxe Seeker.

Hasbro (2019): Hey Fans, heres an $80 3-Pack of Voyager Rainmakers.

Amazing what happens after a couple billion at the box office.

Singe seems the most likely, and with Shrute(Hairsplitter) with Skywarp, that's both of Spinister's dudes.

Better toys for certain.  I think the Legends ones were a little better as far as looks.

 

Had the Legends ones had their arms peg into place like the Siege ones, they would be less comparable.
