Slogan for 2021: "I Lived, Bitch."

@  -LittleAutob... : (03 July 2020 - 03:23 PM)

They should make the next book in the Survivors series 'I SURVIVED CORONA VIRUS 2020'

@  -LittleAutob... : (03 July 2020 - 03:23 PM)

YEEEE I'M A SURVIVOR-

@  Nevermore : (03 July 2020 - 06:59 AM)

Probably gonna assemble Devastator after work.

Jellystone. We're going to be plunged into a decade of poor animation. Fortunately we've been led by bad cartoon characters for years so we won't notice much difference.

@  Maximus Ambus : (01 July 2020 - 06:19 AM)

@  -LittleAutob... : (30 June 2020 - 05:55 PM)

x-x when in vehicle mode we can travel much F A R T H E R-

@  wonko the sane? : (30 June 2020 - 05:52 PM)

Because despite the fact that we can travel around the world in the time it takes to get a good nights sleep and a couple of meals: people rarely wander more than 25 miles away from home for the duration of their lives.

@  Otaku : (30 June 2020 - 05:49 PM)

I don't know how many days that trip takes - especially while sightseeing - but explaining they're 3936 kilometers (2445 miles) apart gives an idea, paradoxically because it is too large to easily picture.

@  Otaku : (30 June 2020 - 05:44 PM)

Aye.  When I catch lay people discussing miles and not how long the trip takes, it is in an attempt to stress how far away something is... like NYC to LA.

@  ▲ndrusi : (30 June 2020 - 01:20 PM)

But I can imagine 45 *minutes* easily.

@  ▲ndrusi : (30 June 2020 - 01:20 PM)

I can imagine a mile, it's a distance I've run. I can't really imagine 45 miles.

@  ▲ndrusi : (30 June 2020 - 01:19 PM)

I think there's also an element of the thing where things that are much bigger than us all blur together.

@  Otaku : (30 June 2020 - 11:49 AM)

If you're not, then you're more concerned with how long it takes.  Actual distance doesn't tell you that very well.  Besides traffic and road conditions, you'll need to know what kind of driving (city/interstate/rural/etc.).

@  Otaku : (30 June 2020 - 11:47 AM)

Distance matters if you're being paid by the mile.

@  TM2-Megatron : (30 June 2020 - 11:44 AM)

Canadians are the same way, for the most part. If you're driving somewhere far, especially, it helps you plan out the day more than a distance in KM would.

@  Otaku : (30 June 2020 - 11:42 AM)

We use the time it takes to get someplace because that is what is relevant to us.

@  TheMightyMol... : (30 June 2020 - 10:55 AM)

Because even we can't figure out miles half the time.

@  Paladin : (30 June 2020 - 09:54 AM)

it's a big country with a lot of empty space. between our citizens' ears.

@  Bass X0 : (30 June 2020 - 09:52 AM)

Why do most Americans measure distance by hours of driving?

@  TM2-Megatron : (29 June 2020 - 07:26 PM)

And as a result the world's lone blu-ray release of the film, an Australian disc that came out 7 years ago, now goes for hundreds of dollars on eBay. Thanks Disney.

@  TM2-Megatron : (29 June 2020 - 06:21 PM)

Well, they censored Daryl Hannah's butt in Splash :rolleyes

@  Paladin : (29 June 2020 - 05:43 PM)

maybe New Mutants is too bad even for D+.

@  Steevy Maximus : (29 June 2020 - 05:00 PM)

X-Men films are coming to Disney+ next month. But will they censor Hugh Jackman's butt?

@  -LittleAutob... : (29 June 2020 - 12:44 PM)

Pft.

@  TheMightyMol... : (29 June 2020 - 11:59 AM)

Behold! Night Strike Galvatron!

@  Bass X0 : (29 June 2020 - 09:53 AM)

I will grant you a recolored body, and recolored troops to command.

@  Cybersnark : (29 June 2020 - 09:47 AM)

I don't want to be reissued. This body sucks, I wanna be updated.

@  Nevermore : (29 June 2020 - 09:43 AM)

I definitely don't intend to be reissued. Nobody would buy me.

@  Bass X0 : (29 June 2020 - 08:31 AM)

will anybody else attempt to be reissued?

@  wonko the sane? : (29 June 2020 - 07:51 AM)

*Gasp* Decepticons re-writing history to serve their own needs?!?!

@  Nevermore : (29 June 2020 - 05:48 AM)

The whole point of the DJD is that they're fanatical Megatron fanboys (especially Tarn) to the point of having their own headcanon taking priority of the actual canon, simply speaking.

@  TheMightyMol... : (29 June 2020 - 04:01 AM)

They didn't know the war was over until later. And then they denied it anyway.

@  PlutoniumBoss : (28 June 2020 - 10:47 PM)

"He's comin' right for us!"

@  Telly : (28 June 2020 - 08:40 PM)

was that even still in effect once the war ended?

@  TheMightyMol... : (28 June 2020 - 06:51 PM)

According to Roberts, soldiers can ignore the order to spare Whirl if he's directly threatening them. But mostly the DJD were out of their heads on Nuke and not really caring much at the time.

@  Xaaron : (28 June 2020 - 06:41 PM)

Also, they were hopped up on goofballs at the time.

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.

Hoping for a gift set this time. I think the chances are higher since the original was. Though I hope this comes with the weapons.

Still don't know if I actually want all six guys though. Simply because you can't lose the combined form well with the Target Master. As much as a white Nautilator would be cool.

I definitely hope it’s all six members because I held off on the previous set in the hope for this deco. Though I guess if I miss out on the Nautilator tooling it’s not the worst thing in the world

They could always paint Lobclaw red, call him Gimlet and say the boxset is a "vs" set.

I hope the price is lower than that of buying all six seperately, I made a choice between the Seacons & Omega Surpeme, and I picked Omega, firstly because the cost is lower and secondly I got more attachment to Omega as a character.

The silhouette has Lobclaw as an arm. While it may be a reuse from King Poseidon, it does tend to lend some credence to including that figure.

If he's in the silhouette, that seems like he would be included then.

 

Though, I had been contemplating the piece of the sword Lobclaw comes with is the 1 part that's really not necessary.

I had a very similar conflict when I saw the Seacons vs. Unicron, though in my case it was less the character than the mix of space and compatibility with my other stuff.  I wonder (seriously doubt it) if they would do another Unicron as a recolor of some sort for a convention or anniversary event.

I can't deny that the BWII schemes are nice (the possibility of seeing Nautilator like this is also cool), I just don't care about these versions of the characters like I do the G1 versions, especially after the cost involved. Had these been normally priced, I MIGHT have gone in for the repaints. This is fantastic for those who want it, though!







...still need to purchase Tentakill and Overbite.

I'd be shocked if we weren't getting God Neptune at some point. And I'm certainly not complaining. I bought the first set of Seacons, and assuming I have the funds available, I won't turn down the second.

Though this teaser is coming just off the heels of King Poseidon's complete release, we probably won't see God Neptune's first release until a year from now.

 

After all, Super Megatron is still coming next and he won't see release until September.

Well, that was pretty much the entire theme of Combiner Wars.  Though in this case, I think the new paint will honestly be rather bland unless they take some liberties.  God Neptune was mostly white and gold, right?  I imagine a very yellow combiner in the future...though in the short term maybe they could hang out with Apeface.

Lol.

If anything, I figured more people wanted a God Neptune announcement even earlier than this. What else was is going to to be repainted as for the Japanese market?

It would be kind of cool for the set to get its Energon/TFCC colors, but Takara's not going to do it.

I've always preferred the God Neptune color scheme. Seems more balanced and coherent to me. I've been hoping for this. Not just white and gold. Also has some greenish teal with copper accents. Original white seems to be metallic or pearlescent.
