Nothings as lovin' as human flesh in the oven!

@  The Doctor Who : (18 January 2017 - 07:28 AM)

I've only had it once, but that was because I forgot to disable adblock on my tablet. Haven't had it otherwise.

@  Jalaguy : (18 January 2017 - 03:52 AM)

I only ever got it once, on the one PC, for whatever reason...

@  Noideaforaname : (17 January 2017 - 09:42 PM)

Not getting the Adblocker message anymore.

@  Kalidor : (17 January 2017 - 05:54 PM)

Starting now you shouldn't be getting the message any further

@  Kalidor : (17 January 2017 - 05:53 PM)

Did you still get it? It should be removed now

@  Telly : (17 January 2017 - 03:14 PM)

i probly shouldnt have said that...

@  Noideaforaname : (17 January 2017 - 01:15 PM)

That AdBlock message has popped up on my iPhone *without* any type of ad blocking, and the mandatory 30-second wait means I'm just not bothering with the site on there anymore...

@  BlackMax : (17 January 2017 - 12:05 PM)

So far it's only happened the one time for me.

@  Ms Virion : (17 January 2017 - 11:02 AM)

I got the popup on a tablet I just bought that I haven't even installed anything on yet. =|

@  Fnu Aw : (17 January 2017 - 09:50 AM)

I've got the same problem. I disabled my adblock on this site, but I'm still getting that message.

@  Jalaguy : (17 January 2017 - 09:38 AM)

I got the ad block warning on my work PC yesterday (with no blocking on), but not my laptop at home.

@  Patchouli Kn... : (17 January 2017 - 08:53 AM)

I wish the ads would stop showing me things I want but can't afford to have

@  Kalidor : (16 January 2017 - 11:15 PM)

Correct

@  BlackMax : (16 January 2017 - 10:37 PM)

So correct me if I'm wrong... it's good that we see the ads, but it's better if we click them?

@  Kalidor : (16 January 2017 - 05:24 PM)

I wonder if any other blockers (javascript, etc) are triggering it. I hate to do it but I have to do something. I don't want to be like Forbes that makes the site un-usable with adblock.. but I do want to remind people that ads are necessary.

@  Dracula : (16 January 2017 - 01:23 PM)

Yeah I had turned off adblock a while ago and got the same message last night.

@  Lazy Garou : (16 January 2017 - 12:38 PM)

anyone seen the korean method 1?

@  Arazyr : (16 January 2017 - 12:11 PM)

I got something similar recently. I think it was due to the site being set up to use https. AdBlock counted it as a different site. I had to update my settings.

@  wonko the sane? : (16 January 2017 - 09:31 AM)

I got it this morning, but it turns out my ad blocker was actually on. I could have sworn I turned it off for the allspark already though...

@  BlackMax : (16 January 2017 - 07:20 AM)

Yeah, so did I. Only one time though.

@  Pennpenn : (16 January 2017 - 03:05 AM)

Got a popup saying I'm using ad-block on this site when I am not. Huh.

@  Bass X0 : (16 January 2017 - 02:29 AM)

In that case I say it is survival of the cutest! Do I hear a second on that? And against?

@  TheMightyMol... : (16 January 2017 - 01:24 AM)

The platypus is nature's way of saying "I made this from scraps I found on the floor, and it can STILL hug you up."

@  MEDdMI : (15 January 2017 - 11:05 PM)

That's what they WANT you to think. They're already a mashup of at least 3 other creatures. Platypi are already Megazords by themselves.

@  Tm_Silverclaw : (15 January 2017 - 10:52 PM)

But it's a platypus.. They don't really do anything.

@  MEDdMI : (15 January 2017 - 10:22 PM)

@  Tm_Silverclaw : (15 January 2017 - 09:58 PM)

I made this custom for the "In Honor of Vector" contest over TFW2005. It's made from a RID Optimus Prime. Ladder was replaced by Cyb Defense Red Alert's rocket to make the vehicle mode a rocket transporter/carrier. Color scheme for Magnus is based on Vector's Alt Magnus custom. Ultra Magnus is of course based on G1 colors. I also modded the chest to make it look more Ultra Magnus and replaced the head with a Hydrospanned (and modded) Energon Superion head. Oh, you may notice some of the pics of UM lacks the yellow highlights. I added the yellow after I took the initial pics.

Edit: Saw a base mode for the RID OP on TFU so I played around with it and came up with base/rocket launch pad mode. Pics below.

Very cool. It works great, from the additional parts you incorporated, to the paint detailing (love the little bits of yellow), to how different the small and large robots look from each other. No reason that Ultra Magnus has to be a car carrier forever and ever Amen, just because the toy that was reused to become his G1 form happened to be one.

Impressive as always. The yellow highlights on that last pic of Ultra Magnus make the figure stand out so much more. I would love to see more pictures or even a full gallery of this marvelous piece of art. Great work as always VPrime.

Of course, the ironic thing to do would be to now combine that figure with RiD's Ultra Magnus...

Onslaugt? Now that would be interesting to see. My orginal idea was to make the Hotspot/Defensor exclusive that we've seen pics of. I actually never owned this figure until a month ago when I bought it thinking I would turn it into the would be TF Club Hotspot/Defensor exclusive that we've seen (I'll probably still do that). I wanted to do a Magnus custom when the contest was announced but didn't know what figure to use. When I received RID Prime in the mail I played around with it and it just hit me that this would make a great G1/Classics/Universe armored Ultra Magnus...

I don't have my own website but I will be submitting more pics to have it on TFW2005's customs gallery a bit later.


Thanks for the comments everyone.
