*sigh* Yup.

That's the exact opposite of what Facebook wants to happen, though. They're hoping you get sucked in by other content and end up spending more time on Facebook and/or making an account.

@  SHIELD Agent 47 : (24 July 2017 - 04:02 PM)

I hate that these days when you use a permalink to a Facebook post, the rest of the page's material still shows up below. Like, WTF, I only want the old way of seeing the post and nothing else!

@  Benbot : (24 July 2017 - 01:34 PM)

I call bullshit on that

@  MEDdMI : (24 July 2017 - 01:08 PM)

Read the article. Apparently too many comics sets off the machines due to the glossy pages messing up the X-ray

@  Benbot : (24 July 2017 - 01:03 PM)

what possible justification could they have to ban books containing drawings?

@  MEDdMI : (24 July 2017 - 12:56 PM)

Per the article, United appears to be the only airline, but there might be others.

@  Dracula : (24 July 2017 - 12:48 PM)

Like anyone needed another reason not to fly United

@  Evac : (24 July 2017 - 12:46 PM)

No, apparently just United did.

Note I wrote "bombshell"in lowercase.

@  Benbot : (24 July 2017 - 10:17 AM)

in this case, face

@  Paladin : (24 July 2017 - 10:16 AM)

depends what appendage its used on.

@  Benbot : (24 July 2017 - 10:15 AM)

I'm something something years old and I have actually never shaved with anything other than electric

@  Benbot : (24 July 2017 - 10:15 AM)

is it worth the trouble?

@  Benbot : (24 July 2017 - 10:15 AM)

Why does a safety razor give a closer shave than an electric razor?

@  RichardT1977 : (24 July 2017 - 10:08 AM)

Nevermore That was Shrapnel, not Bombshell.

@  Telly : (23 July 2017 - 11:19 PM)

i havent. but ive only ordered from them a few times

@  SHIELD Agent 47 : (23 July 2017 - 11:16 PM)

Has anyone here ever had trouble with orders from Tfsource before?

@  BlackMax : (23 July 2017 - 09:29 PM)

@  Bass X0 : (23 July 2017 - 06:40 AM)

The devil is a part-timer!

@  Nevermore : (23 July 2017 - 06:32 AM)

I always took it to be a catch-all term for "person or thing of the same name" regardless of which came first.

@  PlutoniumBoss : (22 July 2017 - 10:06 PM)

So technically it could be either way and not be wrong, but it is more apt to be Kalidor's example.

@  PlutoniumBoss : (22 July 2017 - 10:05 PM)

one that has the same name as another; especially : one who is named after another or for whom another is named

@  Kalidor : (22 July 2017 - 09:45 PM)

I think the official meaning is that a namesake is the person or thing that is named after something else. So the USS Kalidor would be Kalidor's namesake

@  Pennpenn : (22 July 2017 - 08:30 PM)

I thought it was either?

The War Within Shockwave based on Don Figueroa's concept art. It's scratchbuild from styrene. Some of you may remember I started this guy 2 years ago. It was put on hold for about a year and I've finally able to finish it. He appears blue in some of the pics. Those were taken without flash because flash sometimes cover the details. I've included a couple pics using flash and the color is purple which is the true color in real life. I've also included a couple of pics showing the lighting (which can be turned on by pressing the button on top of his left forearm).

That is one of the funniest things i've read in awhile, especially with the rampant usage of sweet for things that aren't even edible, let alone sugary.

back ontopic -

VPrime, could you perhaps do a tutorial on your use of styrene? Have you done one already that I don't know about? I've admired your work since your scratch WW Grim, and I want to learn more about the skill. I want to scratchbuild!!!!

No, I haven't written a tutorial on use of styrene. There might be one out there somewhere. When I get a chance I see if I can write a basic one.

Thanks for the compliments everyone.

Thanks, I would really appreciate it. I'm going to probably have to scratchbuild some parts to create my Animated Rumble and Frenzy, who turn into speakers.

Ya know what's really awesome about your stuff? You're making scratch built figures from the designs of a guy that used to do the same damn thing before turning pro.
It's a beautiful cycle.

Yeah, the designs are great and I wish Hasbro/Takara would have made them. They did on a few of them I guess.

Thanks for the comments everyone!

Sadly, given the fact that Titaniums is dead, it seems unlikely that these designs will ever be made. I liked that line if nothing else for the unusual designs they used. If anything could have brought the Hearts of Steel series (one of my favorite sets of TF designs) to life officially, it would have been Titaniums. Oh well.....
