@  NovaSaber : (04 March 2021 - 11:53 AM)

I take objection to the idea that public health is "politics" just because some politicians don't listen to the experts.

@  fourteenwings : (04 March 2021 - 10:59 AM)

I was only replying to the general sentiment of the last three posts before mine.

@  NotVeryKnightly : (04 March 2021 - 10:58 AM)

The person you replied to specifically gave the example of "limiting the amount of people in a facility".

@  NotVeryKnightly : (04 March 2021 - 10:58 AM)

This wasn't about "lock[ing] everyone in the country down".

@  fourteenwings : (04 March 2021 - 10:57 AM)

All I'm saying is there are lockdown and anti-lockdown people and hashing it out in the shoutbox on a toy forum is dumb.

@  fourteenwings : (04 March 2021 - 10:56 AM)

You don't have to lock everyone in the country down to mitigate risks in one population.

@  fourteenwings : (04 March 2021 - 10:56 AM)

Of course older people have it worse, but America is one of those countries where people ship their old people to homes far away from the action anyways.

@  NotVeryKnightly : (04 March 2021 - 10:55 AM)

What ar you even trying to say, anyway? That we shouldn't complain about others increasing the danger more than necessary?

@  fourteenwings : (04 March 2021 - 10:55 AM)

Frankly, there's a lot to say on this issue that can't be encompassed on the shoutbox and I really really don't want to have to deal with politics every single time I check the forums.

@  NotVeryKnightly : (04 March 2021 - 10:54 AM)

To claim that this is about the people in the 20-40 range is also disingenuous.

@  fourteenwings : (04 March 2021 - 10:53 AM)

Essential workers and such are pretty fit on average which is an extra boon for them.

@  fourteenwings : (04 March 2021 - 10:51 AM)

It's not really a personal choice issue, it's a risk versus well, anything you want to do issue. Literally leaving the house results in potential exposure, mask or no. Overall, most of us who hang out here are 20-40, and our survival rate is comparable with some pretty out there statistics.

@  NotVeryKnightly : (04 March 2021 - 10:39 AM)

Anybody who has to go out because of work or groceries or whatever can't just choose to avoid any potential disease-spreaders, for one thing.

@  NotVeryKnightly : (04 March 2021 - 10:38 AM)

Kind of disingenuous to frame this as just a personal choice issue.

@  fourteenwings : (04 March 2021 - 10:22 AM)

This whole "I can't handle people not me having the choice to not put on masks" thing's a bit much.

@  -LittleAutob... : (04 March 2021 - 09:14 AM)

Hey, Florida is one of the most infected states, and we won't even shut down. We may use masks, but restaurants, clubs, you name it, those are still wide open. Also, what's limiting the amount of people in a facility again? :p

No kidding, but right now: unless it's physically on the shelf in front of you: there's no clear idea when it'll be available. And that goes for just about everything.

@  TM2-Megatron : (03 March 2021 - 04:18 PM)

I've heard new appliances are hard to get, for some reason

@  wonko the sane? : (03 March 2021 - 04:13 PM)

@  NotVeryKnightly : (28 February 2021 - 07:22 AM)

Didn't that come right after the 2016 clown panic? No way to make clowns not disturbing at the time, surely.

@  PlutoniumBoss : (28 February 2021 - 04:26 AM)

The clown guise is supposed to lure kids in, it's no good if it looks sus in one glance.

@  PlutoniumBoss : (28 February 2021 - 04:15 AM)

The new one tries too hard to be unsettling from the start. Curry's look is just a plain old clown, until he very much is not.

@  PlutoniumBoss : (28 February 2021 - 04:14 AM)

And Curry has a far more disturbing look at times than the newbie.

@  Sabrblade : (28 February 2021 - 02:22 AM)

And the original was a showcase of Tim Curry's delightfulness as an actor. 'Nuff said.

@  unluckiness : (27 February 2021 - 10:19 PM)

first one was a decent horror flick but the second was a mess plotwise and even the scares were worse

@  tigerhawk : (27 February 2021 - 04:57 PM)

@  repowers : (24 February 2021 - 05:33 PM)

If everyone would just have the exact same opinions as me then we wouldn't have this problem

I don't know if this would help any, but if it is a real ball joint (I don't have Rattrap) you may be able to pop it out and sand it lightly to get rid of the burr.  I had to do that with POTP Jazz because his leg would fall off when moving it.  I sanded off the bump that should not have been there, then added a light coat of nail polish to get rid of any play I introduced in the sanding.  It's working fine now.

 

I got a Botcon Packrat (the Generations Deluxe mold) in a trade a while back, and I was considering selling it with the new beasts coming, but I think at this point I will keep it, if only because I realized (WAY late) that it unofficially pairs with my TFSS Fractyl.

 

Yeah I'm gonna have to give that a try because it is really annoying.

Primal arrived today.  His card was the Ark "Autobots awaken in 1984" one.  Which is the same one I got with Blackarachnia.  Part of me hopes every card I get with a Kingdom toy is this one over and over.

Speaking of BBTS, I went ahead and stuck a Cheetor and a Paleotrex in my Pile of Loot.  I'll cancel them if Pitney Bowes coughs up the ones I ordered from Entertainment Earth within the next month or so.

Update: As of Thursday, supposedly the package has finally moved after taking over a month to travel from California to Georgia (I can only assume it was carried on foot).  I am now "cautiously optimistic" about its eventual arrival.
 
Meanwhile, Voyager wave 2 is processing and so naturally now is when I finally realize that for some reason I ordered a case instead of a set.  Double Dinobot time, I guess!

Update on both of these: They finally arrived today. Paleotrex had a a Dinobot "leads united factions," and Cheetor had--guess what?--another "Autobots awaken in 1984."

Yes I know it's broken. It's an HTTPS thing and I haven't gotten around to dealing with it yet.

Not sure where to put this as it's just rumor for now and it's for 2022 not Kingdom.

Anyway, drunk leaker guy from a few weeks back just dropped info on a new Menasor for next year. Not much info other than

Motormaster is a potential leader class
It's not a return to combiner theme.
Might just be 1 team a year.
Defensor possible the following year.

Apollux, whose early Kingdom and Studio series 86 info was pretty much right on the money confirmed he also heard about this. Though it's in very early development so things might change and that he heard a different size class for Motormaster.

Grains of salt as always. We won't know till at least the fall. Cheers

Edit: Anyone opposed to me compiling the 2022 rumors and making its own thread? Figured I'd ask since it's just rumors right now

Menasor was one of the Combiner Wars teams I never did pick up, so I'd be happy to get another shot at them. It was one of the weaker teams, too, so a redo couldn't hurt.

Dammit.  I was using "I missed Combiner Wars" as a reason not to just buy every combiner wars deluxe and voyager since they're all expensive now.  That fact was saving me a lot of money and shelf space.

 

Guess I never thought they'd start remaking them anytime soon.

Wait, so they are doing combiners that don't combine just to upscale them for their car & individual robot modes?   

 

 

I mean, they could sell Takara Devastator on individual basis, and I'd be here for that.

That's not what he meant. He's saying combining won't be a wave-wide gimmick.

If Kingdom is the end of Titan Class as rumored, I wonder if this will technically replace them, would fit with the idea of 1 team a year.

Can’t wait to get my hands on Inferno.

Passed on Cheetor in hopes of the darker colored Netflix version.

Still want to find BW Megatron

Dinobots and Airrazor might get picked up. But if I get her then I need Tigertron. Then I’ll want Tigerhawk.

Hoping a BW Silverbolt gets released.

Would also be interested in a Depth Charge.

Torn between being happy at the prospect of a combiner the size of Devastator/Predaking, and being sad about the robot modes being taller than the Autobots who turn into the same kinds of cars.
