Surprised we didn't get a full size retool from the monsterbot mold. I'd rather have a CW Ironhide retool though, we need a van Wilder.

@  tigerhawk : (07 May 2021 - 04:19 PM)

I just noticed Wilder was the only omission from Takara Legends.

@  Nevermore : (07 May 2021 - 06:01 AM)

Even more weirdly, it was the early shift where some people had their regular day off for the week, while the late shift was supposed to have full attendance (not counting sick days, vacations and overtime reduction).

@  Nevermore : (07 May 2021 - 01:15 AM)

The weirdest part was that there was a steady influx of voters during the early shift, while hardly anyone showed up during the late shift.

@  Nevermore : (07 May 2021 - 01:14 AM)

Wow, that was a long day. But it's over, and I finally got some sleep. Not particularly happy with the outcome, but then again, my candidates both admit they didn't really campaign that much.

@  Echowarrior : (06 May 2021 - 08:56 PM)

Best of luck, Nevermore.

@  wonko the sane? : (06 May 2021 - 10:18 AM)

Best of luck man.

@  electricidad : (05 May 2021 - 03:22 PM)

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.

@  tigerhawk : (05 May 2021 - 01:30 PM)

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.

@  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?

@  Steevy Maximus : (02 May 2021 - 09:54 AM)

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)

@  Bass X0 : (27 April 2021 - 04:12 PM)

@  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.

@  Steevy Maximus : (26 April 2021 - 02:17 PM)

WalMart is a cruel mistress. Today she runneth over...tommorrow, she'll be barren as a desert.

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.

I was always anti sub forum, but even more so with how slow the board moves these days. There a threads on the front page where the most recent post was nearly a week ago.

I'd love to see insert coin and forum of solitude merged back in. Neither gets anywhere near enough traffic to drown out general discussion, and may contribute to more over all activity.
I finally got rid of that big white box.

I was a big fan of the 1987 series, being 9 years old when I first watched it. I saw most episodes from the first to the tenth seasons even though the show lost some of its appeal after the first season when it gradually became less serious as the seasons went by.

 

But despite still enjoying the stories and the characters (such as they were for an 80s cartoon)...

 

I kept watching mostly because I *loved* the Technodrome :p.

 

What can I say? I used to have these bizarre obsessions with fictional vehicles and machines as a kid and I would keep making tons of drawings of them, using VHS freeze-frames to try and figure out all the various details that bad and often off-model 80s animation would keep messing up. Joining the Technodrome in that club were the original Gadgetmobile (Inspector Gadget), Koopa's Doomship (Super Mario Bros. 3) and the Containment Unit (The Real Ghostbusters).

 

Anyway, as a big fan of the Technodrome, can you guess which episodes I missed during their initial French broadcast in Quebec because I was at summer camp and the VCR messed up? Part 2 and 3 of the Big Trilogy, the finale of season 3 and when the Technodrome is seen at its most active. My best friend at the time kept telling me that during the episodes I'd missed, it grew arms and legs and I thought that was so silly that he must have been messing with me. Two decades (and lots of torrenting) later, I found out he'd been telling the truth!

 

I guess I was a bit too old and out of it to really keep up with all the newer series but what little I saw of them seemed fun in their respective ways. Maybe it's the fact that I was never that attached to the original that made me open to try something else. And yeah, I saw the Nick crossover with the 80s toon that served as the finale with the original Technodrome in 3D and everything. It was silly and really fun! Oh, and Turtles Forever of course which was quite flawed but still fun and epic.

 

*sigh* I wish I had more time to watch fun series like that. There just aren't enough hours in a day to watch everything that interests me.

 

By the way, what's the consensus on the IDW comic (if there is one) and has the storyline ever been interrupted by an "event" intended to serve as a soft-reboot? Because I still haven't picked IDW TF back up after Revolution (at first I was angry, then resentful and finally it'd been so long that I had lost interest...)

It grew arms and legs?! I must have missed that ep too.

Btw, the NES TMNT game, was it considered a fun game or just popular cuz it was a tie in? Cuz the dam bomb defusing was a terror and, honestly, the weeeeeird random minions they used were soooo not from the TMNT toon.

Well, the round white part rose up on giant hydraulic legs and a bunch of articulated gadgets (drills, saws, gloved hands!) popped out of the underside to grab something "inspector gadget" style. It only lasted a scene and that was enough!

 

Regarding the first NES game, I remember playing with a friend and not quite understanding what it was about because I think the cartoon hadn't started showing in French yet when it came out. I think I was aware of the toys but that's it. As for the game, despite how hard it was, it was still quite a bit better than many other 3rd party game at the time (and that music!) so I guess that was enough to grab kids' attention.

You guys won't believe what I saw at Walmart two night ago (or, maybe you will, and I'm just late to the party on knowing about this :doh).

 

In the electronics section, over by the back wall of the store, on a shelf at the far end of the video games section... was a full-blown vintage-style arcade machine of the classic TMNT: Turtles in Time arcade game! And since it was on a shelf (the only shelf, a few inches off the ground, that is), it looked like it was actually a purchasable item for sale!

 

Alas, however, I could find no price tag on or near the thing, nor were there any employees around for me to ask what this thing's deal was, so I just left it where it was. It probably would have been some pretty expensive price anyway, and it's not like I actually have room for the thing at home, either. Still, finding that Turtles in Time arcade machine there at Walmart, of all places, was still pretty incredible since I never expected to see it there. It's probably still there right now, too.

You sure it was the original and not the new release that's smaller and also includes the original TMNT arcade game?


Being part of any fandom is fundamentally embarassing.
