I consider Thew to basically be the model toy collector. We should all aim to be so amped about the thing we collect.

@  Pennpenn : (21 July 2017 - 07:21 AM)

And some people are just whiny jerks who like to complain about stuff and don't realise that, so will invent irrational grievances to fuel that need.

@  Rycochet : (21 July 2017 - 06:13 AM)

A lot of toy collectors don't seem to get that the things the collect are toys.and have unrealistic expectations of what's doable in a modern retail environment. You're not going to get a $100 figure's worth of parts and paint for $20 or less and gimmicks are needed tomake the toys actually, you know, fun.

@  Foffy : (20 July 2017 - 09:40 PM)

Not necessarily. With the right condiments, they can taste surprisingly nice.

@  Evac : (20 July 2017 - 09:37 PM)

I think most toy collectors are bitter in some form.

@  Diecast : (20 July 2017 - 09:37 PM)

...or maybe I'm the bitter one?!  Oh no.

@  Diecast : (20 July 2017 - 09:32 PM)

And I don't even mean that everyone should love it all. But it does seem to bring the angrier ones in from the lurking.

@  Diecast : (20 July 2017 - 09:29 PM)

It's these reveals that always remind me how exceptionally bitter a large portion of toy collectors are on other forums.

@  Sean Whitmore : (20 July 2017 - 07:06 PM)

SDCC toy reveals make adults happy by telling them what they can get eventually. Kids don't care what they can get eventually, you make them happy by getting them whatever's available now.

@  Jalaguy : (20 July 2017 - 06:10 PM)

They exist, they just don't show them at SDCC because they assume that the adult fanbase doesn't care about them.

@  Steevy Maximus : (20 July 2017 - 06:03 PM)

On SDCC stuff...I'm disappointed, but not surprised, at the lack of the actual KIDS toys among all the toys for us old men

@  Steevy Maximus : (20 July 2017 - 04:15 PM)

:burn

@  Steevy Maximus : (20 July 2017 - 04:15 PM)

SSA response? "How would we know to un enroll you if you don't tell us?"

@  Steevy Maximus : (20 July 2017 - 04:14 PM)

I'm supposed to un-enrolled in Medicare at the end of the month (36 months post-transplant), but I'm getting a bill for next quarter's coverage.

@  Steevy Maximus : (20 July 2017 - 04:14 PM)

I would LOVE to have ONE THING done correctly and promptly by the Social Security Administration

@  Ms Virion : (20 July 2017 - 02:22 PM)

=(

@  SHIELD Agent 47 : (20 July 2017 - 01:43 PM)

Noooo!!!!!

So good it'll whack you in the lobanza.

@  Bass X0 : (19 July 2017 - 06:12 PM)

mafiace cream?

@  Bass X0 : (19 July 2017 - 04:49 PM)

adios mafia.

@  Patchouli Kn... : (19 July 2017 - 03:26 PM)

@  MEDdMI : (19 July 2017 - 02:52 PM)

But he must scream.

@  Benbot : (19 July 2017 - 02:49 PM)

he doesn't have a mouth

@  Benbot : (19 July 2017 - 02:48 PM)

Hoist?

@  Glenn : (19 July 2017 - 11:53 AM)

oops tfsource not bbts

@  Glenn : (19 July 2017 - 11:52 AM)

Does anyone else find Hoist's smile on that MP ad for BBTS slightly disturbing?

@  Bass X0 : (19 July 2017 - 11:39 AM)

In to the darkness, snuffing out the light, fighting for the things you know aren't right

@  Noideaforaname : (19 July 2017 - 09:19 AM)

Snuff out the light, claim your right, to a world of darkness!

@  Bass X0 : (19 July 2017 - 08:33 AM)

Then we must block it out, just like Mr. Burns had foretold.

@  TheMightyMol... : (19 July 2017 - 07:23 AM)

Sunlight is overrated.

@  MEDdMI : (19 July 2017 - 05:42 AM)

Your eyes will remain intact behind the sunglasses on top of a pile of ash.

@  Dekafox : (18 July 2017 - 10:27 PM)

What about Ray-Banz sunglasses?

@  MEDdMI : (18 July 2017 - 07:45 PM)

"This sunscreen will protect even vampires from the sun! ....That'll be your soul, please."

@  MEDdMI : (18 July 2017 - 07:44 PM)

Wouldn't a blessing by Satan pretty much be a curse anyway?

@  Tm_Silverclaw : (18 July 2017 - 06:01 PM)

isn't "Blessed by Satan" an oxymoron?

@  Dracula : (18 July 2017 - 05:11 PM)

basically the sunscreen has to be blessed by satan.

@  MEDdMI : (18 July 2017 - 05:07 PM)

@Dracula what SPF do you nees to not get turned into dust in the sun?

@  Dracula : (18 July 2017 - 04:42 PM)

That's typical summers for where I live. bleh

@  MEDdMI : (18 July 2017 - 04:02 PM)

Isn't it fun when it's so humid, it feels like your eyeballs are sweating?

@  Kalidor : (18 July 2017 - 03:34 PM)

If only we were as progressive in Bea Arthur's day as we are now.

@  Rycochet : (18 July 2017 - 02:27 PM)

I like River Song.

@  D.M : (18 July 2017 - 09:55 AM)

'Cept tougher and, as I've mentioned, more fun. :)

@  D.M : (18 July 2017 - 09:55 AM)

Like, it would basically be the female version of the 1st doctor. :)

@  D.M : (18 July 2017 - 09:54 AM)

I wasn't starting a flame war. That's a real scientific term for natural occuriring sex change. ;) As for Anne Ramsey like actress - would make the show lot more fun. :p

@  Dracula : (18 July 2017 - 09:42 AM)

Let's please not continue this line of discussion. We obviously aren't mature enough to do so.

@  2017 : (18 July 2017 - 09:41 AM)

Thanks mods.

@  Broadside : (18 July 2017 - 08:48 AM)

Oh, for god's sake.

@  D.M : (18 July 2017 - 08:28 AM)

Shit's hitting the fan!

Seeing the new pics of Series 2 inspired me to make these. Hope you guys like 'em.

Thrust
Function: Tactician

Seemingly a normal Omnicon, the former Skyblast-unit is really anything but. Originally a normal technician working in Energon treatment, the Transformer who would be known as ?Thrust? began to exhibit rebellious and even violent tendancies. Eventually, he rebelled against his people, and defected from the Autobots, joining the crew of the nefarious Decepticon pirate, Cannonball. Thrust then rose through the ranks of the Sea Slag, becoming the ship's tactician.

Little does anyone know the truth... that Thrust's change in behavior is due to the Omnicon encountering the spark of one of Unicron's victims, which had been released by the destruction of the Black Hole. The spark has been absorbed into Thrust's own, leading to his new identity. Thrust has no memory of this spark's former life, but its influence is the reason for his change in alignment, and the development of his tactical skills. Unfortunately, it's also created a desire for power... and not even being Cannonball's right-hand-bot may be enough for him.


Decepticlone
Function: Infantry

After the defeat of Galvatron on Cybertron's moon, it was assumed that the war with the Decepticons was over... finished. But then, after the departure of the four star ships, the remnants from the Powerlinx Battles, who had been driven to the planet Chaar a decade before, suddenly attacked Cybertron. And what's more... they had a new weapon: The Decepticlones, an army of sparkless soldiers created to fuel a new war effort.

Soulless and relentless, a single Decepticlones may not be much alone, but when attacking en masse, they can be a formidable fighting force. And with Cybertron, Velocitron, and Gigantion's greatest leaders gone, Jetfire has the greatest task of his career ahead of him.


Omnicon
Function: Infantry

Faced with the monumental task of facing the new army of Decepticlones, Jetfire was faced with one option. He called the Omnicons back from the distant world they had inhabited since the end of the Powerlinx Battles, and instructed them to commission a fighting force to combat the Decepticlones. Though the Omnicons are naturally not very good fighters, they were more than capable of building them, and with the help of engineers from Gigantion, they managed to create an army of drone fighters of their own, based on Signal Flare.

Unlike the Decepticlones, the Omnicon drones retain their spark-form counterparts' ability to manipulate Energon. Their ability to weild Energon Weapons and Energon Stars in battle gave them an advantage, and they managed to repel the Decepticlone invasion and push the Decepticons back to Chaar. With this new conflict over, the Omnicons have become a staple of the four worlds' defense forces. There exist two varieties... a standard version, and a ?commander? class with artificial ?Super Energon? enfused into its armor.

(Note - The mention of the "second type" is an effort to explain the color-scheme of the series-2 Omnicon release.)


Wind Sheer (Based on Series 2 Decepticon "Mini-Con")
Function: Recon

A Mini-Con hailing from Gigantion, Wind Sheer never felt that he fit in on his homeworld. He craved a life of travel, of excitement, of adventure. It seemed that his opportunity had finally come when Transformers from Cybertron made contact with his world, and he wasted no time in stowing away on one of the numerous transport ships visiting Gigantion. But then, he would have no idea that said ship would be raided by the Sea Slag, captained by the infamous pirate Cannonball.

Cannonball found Wind Sheer among the ship's crew, and immediately took an interest in the young Mini-Con. After learning Wind Sheer had been an archivist on the builder world, he forced the Mini-Con to join his crew and provide him information on Gigantion's resources. What's more, Cannonball keeps the Mini-Con at his side at all times, usually forcing him to sit on his shoulder like an Earth-parrot. In some ways, Wind Sheer finally has the life of adventure he always wanted... just without any actual freedom.

Interesting storyline ideas in there. I like Wind Sheer's bio best of the four.
