Fake news, no shinobi.

Turns out the President set the whole thing up as a publicity stunt. Very rude.

listen; i'm sure there were very fine ninjas on both sides.

@  TheMightyMol... : (13 August 2020 - 07:50 PM)

My thoughts and prayers go out to the ninjas.

@  Cybersnark : (13 August 2020 - 06:36 PM)

Can we just let them have him?

@  Bass X0 : (13 August 2020 - 06:18 PM)

The president has been kidnapped by ninjas. Are you a bad enough dude to rescue the president?

@  Otaku : (13 August 2020 - 03:08 PM)

At first, I obviously thought I was correct.  Then I thought perhaps the spelling had changed for some reason.  Copyright/trademark law is weird, ya know?  Now I just accept I goofed. XD

@  Otaku : (13 August 2020 - 03:07 PM)

See, that one directly applies to me.  Apparently, I'd been misreading and mispronouncing it wrong for over 30 years... and I still slip and do it the wrong way much of the time.

I wish I could just sit by a pond and watch ducks for a while.

@  Maximus Ambus : (11 August 2020 - 03:52 AM)

Others say Joe sat down at this pond next to these ducks but really there's just no place in this world for an old man and his ducks.

@  Nevermore : (10 August 2020 - 06:48 PM)

Even worse when I can produce those verifiable facts at a later point, and then the other person simply claims the argument was the other way round (as in, I was actually arguing their position and vice versa).

@  Nevermore : (10 August 2020 - 06:47 PM)

I can argue with people about my versus their memory of events when verifiable facts are not readily available, though, and I get really annoyed when I'm capable of presenting a precise, step-by-step summary with multiple key points that can be used for future verification, and the other person just goes "nope, wrong" without going into detail.

@  Nevermore : (10 August 2020 - 06:45 PM)

I forget things, and I misremember things. But when presented with verifiable facts, my reaction is more like "Huh, could have sworn it was like that", not "this reality is not my own".

@  Nevermore : (10 August 2020 - 06:43 PM)

I have an extremely good memory (which I have proven time and again), and even I can be mistaken.

@  NotVeryKnightly : (10 August 2020 - 06:40 PM)

Might be worth pointing out that it only became "Mandela Effect" and not just "I remembered this wrong" when a conspiracy theorist insisted it was proof of alternate timelines.

@  Otaku : (10 August 2020 - 06:29 PM)

Incorrectly remembering Nelson Mandela's fate may be uniquely American... but is it really that strange to get South African political history wrong when you're no where near South Africa?

@  Otaku : (10 August 2020 - 06:29 PM)

I always assumed the Mandela Effect was a "human thing", not an American thing.

@  wonko the sane? : (10 August 2020 - 02:03 PM)

Then there are people who outright manufacture memories for whatever reason.

@  PlutoniumBoss : (10 August 2020 - 01:13 PM)

The human brain is so flaky that it is extremely unlikely that a given person does NOT have any false memories.

@  OverDrive73 : (10 August 2020 - 01:05 PM)

Perhaps it's simple word association the movie Sinbad and then our minds apply the same memories to a man named Sinbad.

@  OverDrive73 : (10 August 2020 - 01:04 PM)

The Mandela Effect is the same as people remembering Sinbad in a movie where he played a genie... Of which he never did.

@  MidnightFox : (10 August 2020 - 09:36 AM)

People that believe Mandela Effect things would rather come up with any number of reasons as to why their version doesn't have any actual evidence(like alternate timelines collapsing into our own) than just admit they remembered something wrong

@  MidnightFox : (10 August 2020 - 09:35 AM)

Sort of. It's more that when presented with a verifiable fact, they double down because it's what they believe instead of changing their minds

@  ▲ndrusi : (10 August 2020 - 09:25 AM)

"I could have sworn that ______."

@  ▲ndrusi : (10 August 2020 - 09:25 AM)

I'm not arguing with either of those two statements, but they're not really connected. Mandela Effect is, to oversimplify, people being widely mistaken about what they think *is* a verifiable fact. Nothing to do with opinions.

@  MidnightFox : (10 August 2020 - 08:52 AM)

Pretty sure the Mandela Effect in general is an American thing. Opinion > Verifiable Facts is sadly a pretty American thing

@  Nevermore : (10 August 2020 - 04:27 AM)

Ask these people how Apartheid ended according to their recollection, and I'm sure they'll draw a blank.

@  Nevermore : (10 August 2020 - 04:25 AM)

You got two black anti-Apartheid activists who were imprisoned by the oppressive regime. One died, the other was Nelson Mandela. It's not a far stretch that Americans who don't know many details about the history of other countries would mix up the two.

@  Nevermore : (10 August 2020 - 04:24 AM)

My own theory is that these people are simply mixing up Nelson Mandela and Steve Biko, another South African anti-Apartheid activist, who did indeed die in police custody in 1977. There was an Oscar-nominated movie about his life starring Denzel Washington that came out in 1987, the same time frame these people claim remembering Mandela dying.

@  Nevermore : (10 August 2020 - 04:17 AM)

I met a few people from South Africa, and they either never heard of the phenomenon at all, or only know of it from the internet. Apparently, it's completely unknown in South Africa, and it might even be entirely limited to the United States.

@  Nevermore : (10 August 2020 - 04:16 AM)

So does anyone remember the "Mandela Effect"? I'm talking specifically about the original case where many people vividly remember Nelson Mandela dying in prison in the 1980s.

@  Tm_Silverclaw : (10 August 2020 - 03:16 AM)

Crisis of Corona.

@  TheMightyMol... : (09 August 2020 - 06:16 PM)

Which crisis crossover are we on now? I lost track.

@  Rycochet : (09 August 2020 - 05:18 PM)

Much of the past decade has been the part of the comic series where less than stellar authors have driven the series into the ground and the editors are getting ready to either do a big multi issue crossover, leading to a reboot.

@  Bass X0 : (09 August 2020 - 02:28 PM)

At this point I've just decided to consider 2020 "not canon."

@  TheMightyMol... : (09 August 2020 - 02:18 PM)

'member Pepperidge Farm?

@  Maximus Ambus : (09 August 2020 - 02:10 PM)

Before the 'member berries there was Pepperidge farm. Pepperidge farm remembers.

@  OverDrive73 : (09 August 2020 - 12:21 PM)

Hi everybody!

 

I don't know about you, but I think that the most interesting thing about the Transformers is that they transform  :o.

All my old toys are totally limb because I was so fascinated by the transformation:), and when the Masterpiece line started I couldn't believe my luck.

 

The engineering just gets more and more interesting every day. So I decided I wanted to do something with that interest/obsession and I launched a Youtube channel (named Cophonz) a few days ago with me transforming Transformer toys with interesting transformations.

 

I skip no step, make it as insightful as possible, and edit it to keep up the pace. I also intentionally let the mechanical and ratcheting sounds in it for the sake of getting a good feel of the toy. I add some (hopefully) interesting  obscure old-school tunes in the background. It's kind of informative and relaxing at the same time!

Anyway, I loved making the movies and aim to make one every week (and keep improving them). If you think: sounds interesting, You are welcome to visit my channel anytime and subscribe and share and stuff. That would really help me. I embedded some video's below, see if you like them.

 

The link to my Youtube channel is:

https://www.youtube....p5lJ4L0mXtE7U0Q

 

Furthermore, please post some transformations you find very interesting, or you think I should do sometime. Hope to find some more transformation obsessed Transformers fans! Peace!

 

MP-44:

 

MP-36:

 

As for now I got MP-44, Megatron MP-36, Newage mini Jazz, G1 Jazz and Dx Chogokin VF-1S (this one's practically G1 Jetfire:)) online.

TF Prime Wheeljack. the things his legs do are super fun.

Reveal the Shield Lugnut, the way the wings turn into his arms is super cool.

Cybertron being so full of stock footage that the dubbers were just like "hug it, I guess we'll just starting talking over it all the time" was hilarious.

Thanks for the feedback! The first few times I transformed this insane expensive 400 Dollar figure, it made me nervous too! But I'm experimenting a bit with the sound levels, so I might change this.

I gotta say, the squeaky noises your Prime figure made were making me super nervous.


Thanks for the suggestions. I'm thinking about doing TF Prime Wheeljack some time soon. Got some pretty cool moves indeed!

I really like Studio Series copter Dropkick's TF. But I like everything about that toy besides "similarity to onscreen Dropkick".

 

Also if you enjoy transformations and haven't tried out Studio Stinger...he's a weird one.

Hi everybody, I Made some serious changes and got a new studio setup! This resulted in a new video of Bumblebee MPM-03. I really like the way the feet transform and the way the top part of the car is folded into the body, which results in no backpack kibble:)). I also see the video's as reviews, because images say so much more than words, so I added more scenes besides the transformation. What do you think of this statement?

 

Please check it out below and let me know what you think! Really appreciate all the input.

The Fire Convoy/God Magnus "handshake" combination initiation into God Fire Convoy is awesome, especially since the toys do it as well (or as close as can be approximated with Fire Convoy's block hands).

I think Jetfire's transformation into legs is really fun. Those turning-inside-out transformations like Evasion Mode Prime or Studio Scavenger are great when they're not a fiddly disaster.

I am mystified by EN Slugslinger's transformation. It's so unique and so unnecessarily over-involved. Two steps of folding the wings open to reveal the robot chest, then about 20 steps of compressing the whole toy's width by a centimeter.

It's neat and not frustrating at all, but after 16 years, I still just.... why?

Uploaded a bitesize vid of Animated Rodimus aka Hot Rod! I really like this little figure, because it has a very sleek car mode and a robot mode with no kibble at all!

Let me know what you think!

Great video and figure. One of the few Animated molds I've kept (of which I have all and kept all) and not sold off. Extra points for using the TakaraTomy one, as it has that nice metallic magenta.
