Well you can always strap on some cyberlimbs and go into cyberspace for a cyberpunk experience

@  NotVeryKnightly : (18 October 2019 - 04:28 PM)

You know that "cyber" doesn't mean "cyborg", right?

@  Maximus Ambus : (18 October 2019 - 04:16 PM)

So where's the Cyborgs on CYBERtron?

Amazon in the US has pretty good benefits, though, and even the temp workers had forty hours a week to start with. Even with minimum wage, that's pretty good pay.

@  Nevermore : (18 October 2019 - 01:20 AM)

Oh, the turnover rates are high here as well.

@  TM2-Megatron : (17 October 2019 - 09:45 PM)

Amazon.com and .ca, on the other hand, can be pretty terrible. I know from your squawkbox posts that you guys have your issues with Amazon over there, although you're lucky to have stronger government regulations and a union there. I gather the warehouse workers in the USA and Canada have it pretty crappy, with very high turnover, close to minimum wage pay, and no unions

@  TM2-Megatron : (17 October 2019 - 09:38 PM)

Amazon.de doesn't really have the same issue. I've ordered from them (and UK, FR, IT and JP) several times, and their packaging is much better

@  Nevermore : (17 October 2019 - 05:22 PM)

I'm not sure how it works on the customer's end. As packers, we sometimes have items that are flagged as "overwrap", which means we absolutely have to put them into a box even if they're already in pretty sturdy manufacturer packaging.

@  TM2-Megatron : (17 October 2019 - 03:05 PM)

Yeah, I really do wish amazon had an option to upgrade packaging for an extra buck or something. I hate their bubble mailers

@  Benbot : (17 October 2019 - 07:17 AM)

That's how it works. I just hope my order from Amazon doesn't arrive crushed because they idiotically stuffed it in an envelope.

@  Telly : (16 October 2019 - 10:48 PM)

my walmart is acting true to form. as soon as mirage arrives from amazon, my walmart gets his entire wave in after months of having wave 1 clogging the pegs....

@  Nevermore : (16 October 2019 - 05:18 PM)

I stirred up some trouble at work, complained about the blatant neglect of employee safety. Was asked to take photos and write down the locations so the matter could be properly escalated. Made me feel a little better.

@  TM2-Megatron : (14 October 2019 - 10:06 PM)

Together with the Rhino G1 sets, probably the most expensive DVDs I ever bought

@  TM2-Megatron : (14 October 2019 - 10:01 PM)

I've still got the age-old Rhino sets

@  Telly : (14 October 2019 - 09:09 PM)

i didnt find that at any of the ones around here, so i had to settle for seasons 1 and 2 of duckman for $3

@  Steevy Maximus : (14 October 2019 - 07:45 PM)

Heck, I got the season 2/3 set for $3 (?) from a Dollar General discount bin :p

@  TM2-Megatron : (14 October 2019 - 07:29 PM)

The series is pretty cheap on DVD, too, which at least will work internet or no. The complete series set seems to be OOP, but there's a Season 1 set as well as a combined 2 & 3 set.

@  wonko the sane? : (14 October 2019 - 06:10 PM)

Woot! Beast wars!

@  Steevy Maximus : (14 October 2019 - 06:08 PM)

Yay! Tubi now has the first season of Rescue Bots and the full run of Beast Wars FINALLY available.

He dubbed the peoples that saw him as bad news cannibals and savages before enslaving and wiping them out too.

@  wonko the sane? : (14 October 2019 - 01:40 PM)

And if they had been unfriendly: he would have simply slaughtered them with diseases they couldn't fight, and technology they couldn't match until they as a people did not exist. There's something about european backgrounds that drive us to exploit.

@  Rycochet : (14 October 2019 - 11:02 AM)

He described the peoples he encountered as some of the most friendly and giving in the world, so naturally, he ate all their food, enslaved them and put them to work looking for gold that did not exist, until they as a people did not exist.

@  Paladin : (14 October 2019 - 09:57 AM)

he landed by coincidence in front of long-term residents.

@  Sabrblade : (14 October 2019 - 09:55 AM)

He said the world was round-o! (He said the world was round-o!) He said it could be found-o! (He said it could be found-o!) That hypothetical, calculated, son-of-a-gun, Columbo! (That hypothetical, calculated, son-of-a-gun, Columbo!)

In the year 1492, Columbus gave us the day off skoo

@  Noideaforaname : (14 October 2019 - 08:59 AM)

How often do people actually celebrate Columbus or the Pilgrims? Usually it just feels like celebrating the first break in the school year and a nice dinner with the family.

@  wonko the sane? : (14 October 2019 - 08:29 AM)

You've got like two more weeks until the american thanksgiving. Canadian thanksgiving is literally a harvest festival.

Hey, everyone. Come together to enjoy this national holiday made to celebrate a mass-murderer who never set foot in the USA. What fun!

Thanks to the efforts of staff members longamer8 and Powered Convoy, we now have the comic included with Alternity Black Convoy translated. Just how good and righteous has Black Convoy become? Well, let's just say he'd get along with Movie Prime just fine...

Black Convoy is one mean temporal warrior, putting Megs in a time-loop so he's gets shot forever!

Yep, him and movie Prime would definitely work well together.

And who's the girl supposed to be?

I really like this comic despite how short it is.

It shows the true powers of the Alternity characters.

Megatron slices the moon/planet in the background for Pete's sake!

I still wonder who the girl is.

Man I really wish Takara would stop making the Black Convoy homages into Autobots. Just once I would like Takara to make a black repaint that's a Decepticon again.

I prefer it this way, as this is the only one IIRC that was actually used in some kind of fiction. As G1 Black Convoy, Nucleon Quest Super Convoy (outside of their bios), Black Big Convoy (was he actually ever featured in anything), and the unreleased Henkei Black Convoy were never in any fiction. Meanwhile we had Black Convoy/Scourge, Grand Scourge, Scourge/Nemesis Prime, Black Lio Convoy, and BT Black Convoy all in some kind of fiction.

Plus, now Universe 1.0 Nemesis Prime gets a second chance to right the wrongs he's committed.

This is the Decepticon. The one that was an alternate Optimus Prime who spent a lifetime in a torture room, until he cracked and turned evil. It's just that after the countless years since then, he finally reformed and was welcomed back into the collection of all the Optimus Primes from all of the Multiverses. Or at least mostly reformed, we see here that he still has an edge of his brutality left in him.

So Black Convoy is a the 'semi' reformed Unicron herald Nemesis Prime, who is a tortured, once insane clone of an Optimus Prime from an alternate reality in which he was slaughtered by Megazarak. This clone has been welcomed into the alternity and now uses his immense temporal powers (this guy is badass) to combat Megatron, while being chastised about fighting dirty by a hot chick who may actually be a version of Elita-1 (or seven) in a sythoid body?

Man I'm confused, and intrigued. Alternity is beginning to sound really interesting.

Oh yes, and it seems even sythoids llike to show off their looks by wearing skin-tight, low-cut jumpsuits. This is made even stranger if it turns out that E-7 is a Transformer in a human-like body.
