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

@  ZakuConvoy : (13 May 2021 - 02:27 PM)

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.

@  Echowarrior : (06 May 2021 - 08:56 PM)

Best of luck, Nevermore.

@  wonko the sane? : (06 May 2021 - 10:18 AM)

@  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.

@  TheMightyMol... : (04 May 2021 - 07:38 PM)

REVELATION! Towering war machines more durable than nerd!

@  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?

@  Steevy Maximus : (02 May 2021 - 09:54 AM)

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.

I haven't found time to play it in several weeks - maybe months! But I'm keen to get back because I love it and have had virtually no notable problems outside of two or three crashes in many, many hours of play, before the first major patch.

See, I kinda think the perception around the game is more "no man's sky at launch" than skyrim. It's not that people don't necessarily want to give it a chance, it's that as consumers: we're all kind of fed up of the outright lies, and frankly speaking, the extra years of development needed to get even close to the original promise.

 

The triple A development section of the gaming industry is basically using the indie early access methodology, but patently refusing to admit that they are.

Yeah, a lot has happened in the past decade. Most of it bad. And the "pissed-off gamer" demographic is a lot bigger and more vocal than it used to be, thanks to the likes of Ben Croshaw and Jim Sterling. Also, Bethesda already had a reputation for putting out piles of scrap held together with duct tape by 2011, where as CD Projekt Red was responsible for the Witcher games that were specifically held up as a shining example of "See, Bethesda? It's not hard to make an open-world RPG that actually works."

No Man's Sky is the exception that proves the rule, though. Hello Games is an aberration for the fact they actually took the time, effort, and resources to make the game what was promised. Every other studio in the industry would have simply abandoned it to obscurity and moved on.

Which was a undeserved reputation really, since the entire Witcher series had a plethora of bugs and problems all on its own.

Oh, absolutely. But the day after no man's sky dropped? Like; the first little while before the other shoe dropped? The people were raging. None of what was promised was there, even in a barebones fashion. A few years on? No man's sky is one of the few games I never uninstall. I might not play it frequently: but it's never not going to be there. It had to earn it though, and it did. Years of effort on the part of the devs.

 

Maybe in a few years, CP77 will be in the same boat. I hope so, there's a LOT of potential in the world they made.

Again - NMS was the exception that proves the rule.

 

CD Projket Red is more than likely going to drop whatever DLC is still in development then move on to its next project.

Very real possibility I can't deny. On the other hand, CDPR must know their reputation's in the shitter right now. I have to imagine they'd want to do something about that.

They're not exactly alone in that regard. There's not too many RPG developers out there that are exactly being heaped with praises.

 

Obsidian's The Outer Worlds landed with a resounding "Meh."

Blizzard managed to defecate on itself with WarCraft 3: Reforged

Bethesda got bought out by Microsoft, so bad was the Fallout 76 fiasco and we're now FOUR YEARS since they officially announced Elder Scrolls VI and Starfield...neither of which we've seen so much as a hint of a whisper of since.

Square's Final Fantasy VII remake was met with...mixed...reception and while I haven't been keeping up to date on it I also haven't seen any suggestion of when "Part 2" is coming out. And while they didn't develop it, their latest published RPG Outriders is...divisive, to say the least. You either love it or you hate it, and there's zero inbetween to those feelings.

You're kidding, right? Todd Howard won't stop pimping starfield in so far that they refuse to make any other promises cause starfield is just so BIG, and has priority. At this point: I suspect it's another duke nukem forever, but at least I was smart enough to not buy a pre-order this time.

 

As for CDPR: all they have to do is rush out another witcher game, and their fanbase will mostly forgive them.

Being blunt, I stopped paying attention to the shit that comes out of Todd Howard's mouth after he straight up LIED about everything about Fallout 76.

 

Microsoft would be wise to show Todd the door.

You know what. I'm just going to say that in Cyberpunk, a vibrator is not only made into a practical weapon, it's actually one of the most powerful blunt weapons in the game. That is awesome and all other arguments are invalid.
