was she in the first 3 seasons of the cartoon? If not then she's on no one's list because they don't think she exists.

@  Cyoti : (20 November 2019 - 11:23 PM)

It's probably stuck on the low priority end of Warden's to-do list.

@  NotVeryKnightly : (20 November 2019 - 10:45 PM)

Because the only full-body Nightbeat was that Bumblebee with a new head one.

@  Bass X0 : (20 November 2019 - 04:14 PM)

Why has there been no new Minerva toys? I’m surprised at Takara. The Titan Master head doesn’t count.

@  Maximus Ambus : (20 November 2019 - 01:05 PM)

On my shelf I have Ginrai donning the Star Convoy armor.

@  Liege : (19 November 2019 - 07:42 AM)

That he is.

@  Benbot : (18 November 2019 - 04:01 PM)

And a good boy

@  Liege : (18 November 2019 - 09:19 AM)

Hound is at least a very good toy.

@  ThunderWear : (18 November 2019 - 09:11 AM)

Hound is the only other one that even comes close to Chromia in my area, and he ships in two separate waves.

@  Liege : (18 November 2019 - 08:58 AM)

This might be how they finally get rid of all the Chromias. I've not seen a shelfwarmer like that in ages.

@  RichardT1977 : (17 November 2019 - 08:26 PM)

It's a good deal if you want a full set of Refraktor (and if they have them at your location)

@  TheMightyMol... : (17 November 2019 - 04:43 PM)

Here we can buy two and get one free, but at least two of them are gonna be the same toy, because lol distribution.

@  Bass X0 : (17 November 2019 - 01:01 PM)

In the U.K., it’s more like you but two, you only get one given how expensive they are.

@  RichardT1977 : (17 November 2019 - 11:38 AM)

Transformers are Buy 2 Get 1 free at Target this week.

@  Bass X0 : (17 November 2019 - 04:29 AM)

2019 has been one long South Park episode.

@  Sjogre : (16 November 2019 - 10:46 PM)

Okay, that actually sounds pretty fun.

@  Maximus Ambus : (15 November 2019 - 12:49 PM)

It was set in the forties, featured Nazi's as the villains and had Kiko fight mostly Ice Age animals and a mythical dragon that now ruled the island guarding Kongs treasure.

@  Paladin : (15 November 2019 - 11:37 AM)

and it was ALSO eleven hours long.

@  Maximus Ambus : (15 November 2019 - 10:55 AM)

In a alternate reality Peter Jackson made Son of Kong.

@  wonko the sane? : (15 November 2019 - 09:30 AM)

To be fair to boba: everyone else to go into the sarlacc was a sacrifice. Stripped almost naked and tossed, and didn't have body armor, a jetpack and a weapon.

@  TheMightyMol... : (15 November 2019 - 06:54 AM)

Nah, he just has to keep up his plot insurance payments so he can shoot his way out of the Sarlacc again.

@  PlutoniumBoss : (15 November 2019 - 02:59 AM)

Funny, but everyone knows he bounty hunts for Jabba Hutt to finance his 'Vette.

@  Tm_Silverclaw : (15 November 2019 - 02:54 AM)

Okay.. Not sure why.. but streaming is harder than jsut playing the game.. even though that's pretty much what I was doing.

@  Xellos : (14 November 2019 - 06:47 PM)

What type of vehicle does Boba Fett use for time travel? A Man-DeLorean.

@  TM2-Megatron : (14 November 2019 - 03:55 PM)

Admittedly, it's been a long time since I've been to a walk-in clinic, as I tend not to get sick (and the one time I do every 4-5 years, I prefer just riding it out at home), but the last time I went I'm pretty sure you could just show up, no appointment. It may be different in Quebec,though

@  Nevermore : (14 November 2019 - 02:36 PM)

One thing to note about health insurance in Germany is that we have a two-class system: mandatory health insurance is basically the economy class, while private health insurance is the business class.

@  Nevermore : (14 November 2019 - 02:32 PM)

My local doctor is actually a shared office with several doctors where you will get randomly assigned to one of the doctors available that day.

@  Nevermore : (14 November 2019 - 02:30 PM)

Also, employers are required by law to cover part of their employees' health insurance fees, so I only have to pay my part.

@  Nevermore : (14 November 2019 - 02:28 PM)

Basic examinations and sick notes (known as "work-inability certificates" in Germany) for the employer are covered by our health insurances by default.

@  TheMightyMol... : (14 November 2019 - 12:02 PM)

Around here, we can go to a walk-in clinic whenever, but might have to wait in the queue until there's a doctor available, which can take hours on a busy day. And then hope our insurance will cover anything.

@  wonko the sane? : (14 November 2019 - 07:38 AM)

There actually are a good number of clinics around here: but the walk ins require an appointment (what?) and are only done once a week. IF you can get an appointment, you see a doctor usually within 40 minutes, but good luck getting the appointment.

@  Nevermore : (14 November 2019 - 03:35 AM)

Depending on the day.

@  Nevermore : (14 November 2019 - 03:35 AM)

We have family doctors (called "house doctors") with regular office hours where you may need an hour or two of waiting time.

@  TM2-Megatron : (14 November 2019 - 12:50 AM)

Two weeks? That seems a little long; are there not a lot of walk-in clinics around you?

@  wonko the sane? : (13 November 2019 - 07:01 PM)

Does germany make it quick and easy to see a doctor too? Cause an emergency doctor visit can take two weeks out here, and an emergency ROOM visit can take 18-24 hours.

@  Nevermore : (13 November 2019 - 06:43 PM)

(Good thing is, under German law, if you call in sick during your vacation and see a doctor immediately, you get to keep your vacation days.)

@  Nevermore : (13 November 2019 - 06:42 PM)

Too bad. My plans wee to do two more overtime hours before having my last day of vacation for the year on Friday. Oh well.

@  Nevermore : (13 November 2019 - 06:41 PM)

So I'm currently on medical leave for a particularly stupid reason: Burned my back with a hot-water bag while sleeping last night. Though the doctor said I'm hardly the first person to have this happen to them.

@  Patch : (13 November 2019 - 06:11 PM)

Just a particularly odious example of the 90s era of depicting transgender women as either the subject of crude humor, or "Jerry Springer" material.

@  Ashley : (13 November 2019 - 04:55 PM)

I think Ace Ventura legit contributed to me spending years in self denial. I will never be ok with Jim Carrey.

@  Benbot : (13 November 2019 - 01:22 PM)

I thought he since changed his tune.

@  Tm_Silverclaw : (13 November 2019 - 12:51 PM)

Jim Carry Paladin?

@  Maximus Ambus : (13 November 2019 - 12:22 PM)

Don't doubt what he can do. Sonic the Hedgehog!

@  Paladin : (13 November 2019 - 11:51 AM)

not giving a dime to a transphobic antivaxxer.

@  wonko the sane? : (13 November 2019 - 11:25 AM)

It'll be a terrible movie if jim carrey phones it in. Otherwise it should be decent.

@  Paladin : (13 November 2019 - 10:45 AM)

sonics' still gonna be a terrible movie but at least they whined loud enough to make him look passable for a 2-minute trailer. "yay."

@  ▲ndrusi : (13 November 2019 - 10:37 AM)

But of course to annoying people there's no such thing as different decisions made for different reasons, there is only "I like it so it's right" and "I don't like it so it's wrong."

@  ▲ndrusi : (13 November 2019 - 10:35 AM)

Even if we pretend it's objective truth that they were both bad, then they were bad in very different ways.

@  ▲ndrusi : (13 November 2019 - 10:33 AM)

Sonic's previous movie design looked genuinely bad. The Transformers '07 designs just looked insufficiently like what certain loud and obnoxious parts of the fandom think Transformers are required to always look like.

@  Otaku : (13 November 2019 - 08:50 AM)

Um... Purple Monkey Dishwasher?

Most of my collection, due to matters of taste with the significant other, is relegated to the bedroom and walk-in closet (which has some really awesome built-in shoe shelves that are the perfect size for most Ultra-sized figures and below). I have two large bookcases, one medium etagere, a TV armoire with a small MDF shelf from Target on top, a desk, and one of those durable plastic shelves you get for 15 bucks from Target or Wal-Mart. Additionally, I have a curio shelf in the closet, plus the aforementioned built in, and a pair of convenient six foot panel resting over the parallel hanger rails; one's at about seven feet, the other about three (no idea why there's a rail that low, honestly).

Since it's the most current main line, we'll start with the Cybertron Bookcase, which is on the right-hand wall of my bedroom, between the door to the hallway and the pocket door leading into the bathroom.
IPB Image
Earth Autobots and Decepticons. Skyshadow is holding the "Oblivion" Saber because that's why Jetfire is under cover-- to retrieve the rogue Mini-Cons. I've incorporated the Classics Mini-Cons back into the UT, where they originated. They're the only Mini-Cons I've actually got on display at the moment, since a good deal of them are in a plastic bag left over from when I rearranged shelves the day before yesterday.
IPB Image
Now we have Cybertron's leader (gold key) figures, plus Galaxy Force Vector Prime and Cybertron Defense Hot Shot. CDHS is there because he becomes leader of Velocitron at the end of the series. Hanging from Evac's winch is the Omega Lock.
IPB Image
Speed Planet, plus the slightly incongruous Galvatron and Nemesis Breaker. He's only there because I ran out of room on Giant Planet's shelf.
IPB Image
Because it's Giant Planet. The smallest figures on this shelf are Sideways and Unicron. It's a Planet X/Giant Planet showdown, plus Wing Saber.

IPB Image
YARR! I love Pirates so hugging much, and I was just thrilled to find out that Cannonball is one. Here's his crew: He's equal opportunity Unicron Trilogy, with the exception of Nemesis Prime. Anyone who's read my fanfic will understand a lot of the choices here. You can't tell from this shot, but I've got Ultimate Battle Classics Megatron there (Gutcruncher), Cybertron Voyager Starscream (Thrust), Bert and Ernie (yellow and red Scrapmetals), Energon Slugslinger (Fangrel), and one of each Terrorcon except for Insecticon.
Here's a clearer shot:

Beast Planet. Classics Mini-Con Dinobots and RID Bruticus call Beast Planet home.
IPB Image
Damn I have a messy desk. My 2003 Allspark Hall of Fame award is there, as well as some original Matt Nelson Superdeformers artwork. Yes, that's a plush Dragonite foot.
IPB Image
The VCR shelf of the TV armoire is stuffed with Mini-Mates, Smallest TFs, LOCs, and Lego X-Pods. And Titanium Unicron. And Chris's great grandfather's memoires manuscript. And a Gameboy. And lots of dust.
IPB Image
Here are the Primes and Primals, bottom row: G1 reissue Rodimus Prime, Big Convoy, DVD Robot Masters Leo Prime, Primal Prime, BW10th Anniversary Optimus Primal, Vector Prime (a mishmash of the US and Japanese versions, since my Japanese Galaxy Force VP was damaged in the fire), Beast Machines Primal, RID Primal, and an original BW ultra Primal.
IPB Image
Above them are the big guns: Super Fire Convoy, Star Convoy, 20th Anniversary Prime, Galaxy Convoy (he and VP were the only major purchases from Galaxy Force-- I simply could not wait), Beast Planet Optimus Prime, THS-02 Prime, LOC Vector Prime, Energon Powerlinx Prime, Armada Superbase Prime, LOC Cybertron Prime, and Ultimate Battle Prime. I try to have an iteration of each generation's Prime or Primal.
IPB Image
Now we move to the small etagere next to my TV. Primus and Unicron are on the second shelf, and below them I actually have BOOKS in a bookshelf! Happy Meal Rhino and Panther, plus BW Poison Bite and Jawbreaker, a little gashapon Venom, and Cookie Monster round out the book shelf.
IPB Image
Above them are my only other major non-TF display, my Bionicle figures. Vezon is atop Kardas, with severa Barraki, Piraka, a Visorak and one of those other evil Bionicle guys from a few years ago. On the side of the armoire is a Toa Inika fighting with a Piraka and a Barraki.
IPB Image
Alternators take up two shelves. I've got every current US release except Camshaft. Swindle and Dead End are Binaltechs, and I wish I had the American versions; they're both very floppy and top-heavy.
IPB Image
I already need to update this picture, as I found Classics Jetfire this evening.
IPB Image
Energon figures. I'm considering punting them into storage.
IPB Image
Off-screen RID vs. Scourge and Fort Max. For a while I had Megabolt atop Fortress Maximus.

The RIDs stand atop the shoe shelf in the closet, which is chock full of G1-era and Universe goodness. I'm considering bringing Universe back into the main display and using the shoe shelf for Alternators. We'll see what kind of mood I'm in on my next day off.

I got that Abominus complete at Botcon a few years back, but the Sinnertwin broke. Fortunately, while box-diving in my mom's garage, I found my original G1 Sinnertwin, still in really good shape. Sticker wear here and there, but I don't care about that all that much. All of the G1 Autobots on the shelf to the left of Abominus are reissues except for Wheelie; the shelf below are all originals.
IPB Image
Universe! Probably my favorite overall line because of the story and the choices in figures from all eras. I have pretty much the entire line minus a couple of the Micromaster sets and the Target Constructicons; I skipped the dollar store Energon repacks because I already have them.
IPB Image
Above the Decepticon Universe figures I have my badges from just about every Con I've been to. I was volunteer staff at OTFCC 04. It was fun.
IPB Image
It occurs to me I didn't get a shot of the Universe Decepticons today, so this old shot from April 06 will have to do. They haven't moved much since then.
IPB Image
More Universe Autobots:
IPB Image
IPB Image
G1 Autobots. Powermaster Prime and G2 Grimlock are original, the rest are reissues:
IPB Image
RID. Pretty boring:
IPB Image
IPB Image
IPB Image

I like to hang my toys up:
IPB Image

Best of the Beast Wars. There's no rhyme or reason to their organization; it's just the figures I like the most. When I get more space, they'll all go on display.
IPB Image
IPB Image

Here's the first two thirds of the Unicron Trilogy: Armada Autobots and Decepticons vs. Energon Autobots. Again, space issue.
IPB Image
IPB Image
IPB Image
Here's the Energon Decepticons on the other display in the bedroom:
IPB Image

This here is my Megatrons shelf. I need to dig my Gigatron out of storage, and get Smallest Megatron down from the Cannonball shelf (I inadvertantly left him there when shooting):
IPB Image
IPB Image
Armada Megatron's sort of obscured, sorry.

Beast Wars the Tenth: Kind of a sparse display, but it was a small line. These guys are relatively boring, and I mostly got them for Tarantulas and Trans-Mutate, since those were molds I didn't have already.
IPB Image

And here's the only toy display in the living room; it sits above the wet bar:
IPB Image
McFarlane Dragons are awesome little statues.

And that's pretty much it. I have some random Lego displays around the house-- the Millennium Falcon sits atop the filing cabinet in the dining room, and I've got a lot of Vikings kits on my "studio" shelf in the office, but they're all really dusty.
IPB Image
I've changed the layout of my computer hutch since then; no framed images, just Lego Batman and Star Wars stuff.

Fang... your Universe collection makes me weep.

which is very shocking news... I had to ask the nurse at the emergancy waiting room why I could still see if my eyeballs were leaking...

she laughed and some fairly large men escorted me toward the door.
