Yeah, my hybrid does that when idling or at low speeds. Otherwise it's almost completely silent.

That might actually be a fake noise they make electric cars make so pedestrians can hear them. Some cars even let you pick out what noise they make.

@  wonko the sane? : (13 May 2021 - 11:20 AM)

Actually heard a car with that electric, scifi-hum to it. Made me realize that we kinda are living in the future...

@  tigerhawk : (13 May 2021 - 03:28 AM)

Nearly thirty Studio Series figs including the '86 line. "I won't touch that." I said a few years ago when deluxe wave 5 came to my store for a tenner each. My latest one' is 72 Starscream.

@  tigerhawk : (10 May 2021 - 02:56 AM)

The 1988 G1 line up could all have been done as Titan Master things, I figure the Pretenders could be done as Titan Master Drones and Prime Master shells.

@  Cyoti : (08 May 2021 - 11:14 AM)

Perfect is the enemy of the good. And it's still better than making him a remold of RTS Jazz as planned originally. Fact of the matter is: Nightbeat is just not a priority with Hasbro.

@  Demovere Xeno : (08 May 2021 - 08:58 AM)

Generations Nightbeat never really scratched that itch sadly; he looked okay, but his transformation was fiddly, his robot mode had far too many bits and pieces flopping around unsecured, and his chest dragged along the surface in var mode. =/

@  Demovere Xeno : (08 May 2021 - 08:57 AM)

I second wishing that we got a Deluxe Nightbeat from TR, mostly because as a kid he was second-in-command to my old Powermaster Optimus for the longest time. =P

@  tigerhawk : (08 May 2021 - 05:41 AM)

Wipe Out and Wilder it coulda been: Wipe Out is down in the dumps because the Scramble City Trypticon was destroyed and left him a drifting to the point he arrives in Legends World, he finds Wilder and both go on a crime spree subverted by their realisation neither gets any joy from it until they stop a violent crook together and become anti heroes. (Bass XO beat me!)

@  Bass X0 : (08 May 2021 - 05:39 AM)

Yes, Nightbeat and Siren would have been easy remolds of Chromedome - just give them new chests and each other's Titan Master heads. Fangry and Squeezeplay would be remolded from Twinferno with their own Titan Master heads. And Horri-Bull would have been remolded from Wolfwire.

@  Rycochet : (07 May 2021 - 05:10 PM)

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.

@  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.

@  Telly : (04 May 2021 - 07:18 PM)

pansy. my trypticon AND scorponok took a header from 4 feet up and only had parts pop off that were easily reattached. guess 'cons are tougher...

@  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?

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.

Its been a rollercoaster couple-a days on the TMNT figure end. Biggest news is today NECA announced Movie Tokka and Rahzar are no longer Walmart exclusive but instead being moved to a pre-order system. The amounts of preorders will dictate how many are ordered. Limit 2 per household.

https://www.instagra...d=1eaqvh5b8y2lb

Not mentioned there, but also brought up in Randy's interview with Pixel Dan is that in a few weeks Super Shredder will be purchaseable thru their website and at Walmart physically. There will be 3x the availability online as whats in stores and limit 1 per household.

Glad to see they're listening to the fans here. The whole situation sucks but it seems to suck hardest on the shoulders of the collectors themselves. These decisions should hopefully alleviate those issues going forward.

Over the weekend many new figures were shown off in the Toon line including Ratking, Muckman and Joe Eyeball, Mondo Gecko, Vernon with alt Were Rat head and a prototype for Bug Stockman. Stock images of the Deluxe Krang Robot Body were shown too.

Movie line got teased with a possible Hamato Yoshi and Oroku Saki.

Its about $86 with shipping. You have until next friday to preorder or else you're stuck with aftermarket prices.

Totally random thing that happened last night.

 

I had a dream in which there was going to be an animated TV special in which the Turtles get sent back in time to 1912 right at the casting off of the Titanic on its tragic voyage from England to New York. Unsure of how to get back home to their time, the Turtles actually contemplated if they should forgo history and try to save the ship from crashing into the iceberg that they knew would be coming later.

 

But then, whilst aboard the ship, they were soon gonna find out that they weren't the only TMNT aboard the vessel, but that there actually existed another set of British TMNT native to this time period that the present-day New York TMNT never knew about. And of course, an initial misunderstanding would lead to the two teams mistaking each other for enemies and fighting each other before coming to their senses and trying to make sense of their respective situations.

 

The dream ended before I could find out what happened, but if I were guess, I'd think that something may have gone wrong in any plans to save the ship, with the NYC Turtles getting sent back to their own time while the British TMNT of 1912 did what they could to help get as many survivors into as many lifeboat as they could before nobly giving their own lives to the freezing cold Arctic waters in the process.

So, Rise of the TMNT aired the season 2 finale (...and it's probably the SERIES finale, as well) on Nicktoons.  

 

My goodness, that last episode has some crazy Gurren Lagann-style animation.  And a character reveal that I honestly didn't see coming.  So, yeah, even if you were on the fence with the show, I'd give the last 3 episodes a watch (Battle Nexus New York, and Finale parts 1-4).  There's some surprisingly touching moments and some blink-and-you'll-miss-it background lore...a little late and abbreviated, but I'll take it.

I will admit they finished it off pretty well. I have no desire to go back and learn how certain people are with the good guys now, but if that is the series finale I'll give them some props. Heck some of Splinters backstory was kind of heartbreaking and can understand why this version is a bit of a jerk

 

The character reveal came out of nowhere I'd say. But then again I have watched barely any of this so who knows if there were hints earlier. Felt a bit like the end of the Ninja Tribunal arc from the 2003 series. Just less dragons.

I ordered One of the limited TMNT Loot Crates but couldn't remember which one. They had a Mirage, Arcade and Cartoon crate.

I knew it wasn't the arcade crate but I wasn't sure if I ordered the Mirage or Cartoon crate. I'd be happy with either, but I was really hoping for Mirage since it has a cool looking Shredder.

I got the mailing confirmation yesterday (but just read it tonight). IT'S THE MIRAGE ONE!

Oh, I can't wait until it arrives! I'll take pictures. But man oh man, I can't wait!

My TMNT Loot Crate came today. It revolved more around TCRI than the act turtles, but that NECA toy was the real prize anyway.
