@  Maximus Ambus : (05 April 2020 - 04:50 AM)

Actually on the subject, I've hard a lot of people refer to a 2011 film called Contagion that they think is relevant.

@  Maximus Ambus : (05 April 2020 - 01:11 AM)

Ah well, I'll stick to the classic British sitcoms: One Foot in the Grave, Til Death Do Us Part and They Think It's All Over.

@  TM2-Megatron : (05 April 2020 - 12:53 AM)

There's always the original, cheesy as it is

@  Tm_Silverclaw : (05 April 2020 - 12:10 AM)

Dunno... Tonight one of the major networks showed a movie with plagues.. including that listening to their leader causes the first born to die. ;P So nah.. I think the Stand could work. :D

@  TM2-Megatron : (04 April 2020 - 09:18 PM)

That's probably the last thing anyone needs to see, at the moment. Maybe when we get to the end of June/beginning of July and we can venture back out, it might be possible to find some enjoyment in The Stand.

@  Maximus Ambus : (04 April 2020 - 02:08 PM)

I suppose the CBS adaptation of Stephen Kings The Stand will be delayed.

@  wonko the sane? : (03 April 2020 - 12:41 PM)

It arrived! Yay!

@  wonko the sane? : (03 April 2020 - 11:25 AM)

Given how the virus lasts about 3-4 days on metals and plastics, it's about the only way to go about getting stuff right now. I ordered a monitor mount for my desk and the delivery has been pushed back twice already.

@  Maximus Ambus : (03 April 2020 - 11:04 AM)

He ordered it online, says it was to keep those delivery boys in business. I did the same a week ago with some Transformers Studio Series figures off Kapow. Don't know if it's wise or not considering.

@  wonko the sane? : (03 April 2020 - 09:12 AM)

You'd be the first. Everyone else has either been frustrated cause the one they wanted was sold out (like during boxing week.) or rushing to replace something broken.

@  RYNO : (03 April 2020 - 08:53 AM)

I actually walked into a store the other day and just randomly decided to buy at 32inch TV. It was just a Vizio, and grabbed a Mounting Bracket for it. No duress. Just a spur of the moment wanted a TV for my master bedroom.

@  wonko the sane? : (03 April 2020 - 07:31 AM)

Conversely: I've never met a person who wasn't buying a TV under duress... so... yeah.

@  wonko the sane? : (03 April 2020 - 07:20 AM)

I think I've met maybe two people other than myself who count cables before buying a TV.

@  Tm_Silverclaw : (03 April 2020 - 05:33 AM)

Seriously.. HDMI splitters and switches are so bloody finicky, but most tvs don't have enough inputs.

@  Maximus Ambus : (03 April 2020 - 05:09 AM)

Just spent a hour trying to get my brothers new Samsung TV to read his Playstation and Blu Ray player only to find he was using a HDMI splitter.

@  Sabrblade : (01 April 2020 - 08:58 PM)

This morning, for one of my online classes, I had to give a positive oral presentation about a play that I hated having to watch. I went into it completely unprepared and just winged it. My professor LOVED my presentation and thought it was excellent. She believed every word I said and honestly thought that I enjoyed that miserable play. Best April Fools ever!

@  Steevy Maximus : (30 March 2020 - 06:50 PM)

He was Leader Uno

@  Steevy Maximus : (30 March 2020 - 06:50 PM)

He was the OTHER Leader 1

@  TheMightyMol... : (30 March 2020 - 06:29 PM)

Or Sideways.

@  PlutoniumBoss : (30 March 2020 - 05:26 PM)

On the other hand, this is Armada we're talking about. It could have actually been Metroplex.

@  PlutoniumBoss : (28 March 2020 - 11:08 PM)

@  Steevy Maximus : (27 March 2020 - 08:18 PM)

Baja Blast is back at retail!

@  TheMightyMol... : (27 March 2020 - 03:47 PM)

Shame he wasn't around more. He seemed like such a jolly, happy soul.

@  PlutoniumBoss : (27 March 2020 - 02:16 PM)

No, he was definitely Metroplex. You could tell because he was in Metroplex's distinctive red and green coloration.

@  Paladin : (27 March 2020 - 02:11 PM)

that was Leader-1. or possibly Jolt. maybe Grindor...

@  PlutoniumBoss : (27 March 2020 - 01:57 PM)

Metroplex was in Armada, in a flashback. He was the same size as everybody else. I thought that was the joke.

@  Tm_Silverclaw : (27 March 2020 - 12:39 PM)

@Rodimus Supreme: Gah! You are right! How'd I get that mixed up? x.x;

@  TheMightyMol... : (27 March 2020 - 12:14 PM)

There is no Metroplex. Only Zuul.

@  Rodimus Supreme : (27 March 2020 - 11:13 AM)

@Tm_Silverclaw: There is no Armada Metroplex, he was in Cybertron.

@  Rodimus Supreme : (27 March 2020 - 11:12 AM)

And they'd be better off just retooling Metroplex and Fortress Maximus to be somewhat more accurate and changing/adding parts for interaction with later play gimmicks.

@  Rodimus Supreme : (27 March 2020 - 11:11 AM)

I honestly would prefer that for scale purposes.

@  Cyoti : (27 March 2020 - 11:07 AM)

They can redo all the CW combiners as Titan Class figures like Predaking/Devastator.

@  Dekafox : (27 March 2020 - 07:52 AM)

They could just redo Metroplex again too. Especially if it's going to be S3 based. They could also do another Primus to go with the coming Unicron.

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.
