-shrugs- He says the right things more often, at least.

@  SHIELD Agent 47 : (22 January 2018 - 11:03 PM)

Well is Trudeau an improvement over Harper?

@  wonko the sane? : (22 January 2018 - 10:54 PM)

Most of the country is sick of trudeau, they very well might get in anyway. Might as well vote for the shmuck who actually wants to do good, but will accidentally screw it up, over the shmucks who'll lie about it.

@  TM2-Megatron : (22 January 2018 - 07:14 PM)

Voting NDP is how the Conservatives get in, though

@  wonko the sane? : (22 January 2018 - 07:12 PM)

because the road to hell is, after all, paved with good intentions.

@  wonko the sane? : (22 January 2018 - 07:12 PM)

There isn't one of those in this lot. Vote for the one whom won't deliberately do damage... so NDP.

@  TM2-Megatron : (22 January 2018 - 07:09 PM)

I usually feel an obligation to vote in any election, but I honestly won't know who to vote for next time around. I don't like any of them, and I think the best we can hope for is someone who won't do any more damage

@  TM2-Megatron : (22 January 2018 - 07:04 PM)

Pretending to try to figure out how to undo the absolutely flawless system of wealth concentration they and their predecessors designed

@  TM2-Megatron : (22 January 2018 - 07:04 PM)

Well, they're all off to Davos now, supposedly to lament the horribly skewed wealth distribution that's gotten even worse since last year's meeting

@  wonko the sane? : (22 January 2018 - 07:03 PM)

Conversely, being impressed by politicians isn't something you should be happy about.

@  wonko the sane? : (22 January 2018 - 07:02 PM)

The other side of the canadian coin right now is a harper clone. If trudeau runs again, the choice is NDP or liberal. It all depends on how the NDP plays out under the new guy, but so far I am unimpressed.

@  TM2-Megatron : (22 January 2018 - 07:00 PM)

I don't disagree. Trudeau is a clown and he's been a huge disappointment. I was naive enough to believe he'd actually stick to his word and do something to help the middle class. He's never getting my vote again

@  wonko the sane? : (22 January 2018 - 07:00 PM)

This little raptor is freaking BOSS! Also, I've been drinking, so kinda mellow.

@  wonko the sane? : (22 January 2018 - 07:00 PM)

Been playing with slash for the last hour though, totally worth it.

@  wonko the sane? : (22 January 2018 - 06:59 PM)

After duties and the exchange AND shipping. I'm not even going to bother appealing, it'll take ages and achieve nothing.

@  TM2-Megatron : (22 January 2018 - 06:59 PM)

I assuming it was toys, and those have a 0% duty rate even when the object isn't of North American manufacture. In that case, it just should've been taxes and the processing fee

@  wonko the sane? : (22 January 2018 - 06:58 PM)

We won't get it. Nothing the trudeau government has done has actually helped the end level canadian citizen, and with trump on the other side: it'll only get worse.

@  TM2-Megatron : (22 January 2018 - 06:58 PM)

Wonko, if you feel the customs weren't assessed properly you can always contact them to appeal. Generally, the fee should only be taxes (GST/QST in your case) + duties (if applicable, depending on the type of item where it was made) + Canada Post's processing fee. If the item was properly valued on the parcel, it usually shouldn't reach paid twice territory

@  TM2-Megatron : (22 January 2018 - 06:49 PM)

One of the things I'm hoping comes out of these NAFTA talks (assuming they don't kill it) is Canada adopting an increased duty-free limit. $20 compared to the American's $800 is really ridiculous

@  TM2-Megatron : (22 January 2018 - 06:47 PM)

Stuff sent via more expensive shipping methods, though, might attract their attention more often

@  TM2-Megatron : (22 January 2018 - 06:46 PM)

Although it might depend what method it was sent via USPS. Pretty much the only things I receive from the US anymore in Canada are sent First Class Parcel (which is trackable), and I don't think Customs really scrutinizes those ones that much

@  TM2-Megatron : (22 January 2018 - 06:41 PM)

In fact I almost never get charged. Only when the stated value on the package is in the extreme range, like $300 or more

@  TM2-Megatron : (22 January 2018 - 06:41 PM)

Strange the duties were so high. I've been hit by UPS with their insane fees, but I've always had good experiences with USPS and Canada Post

@  wonko the sane? : (22 January 2018 - 05:36 PM)

USPS then canada post.

@  RichardT1977 : (22 January 2018 - 05:25 PM)

Very carefully, I hope

@  TM2-Megatron : (22 January 2018 - 03:32 PM)

How was it delivered?

@  wonko the sane? : (22 January 2018 - 02:24 PM)

the duties pushed the cost of it into "paid twice" range.

@  Benbot : (22 January 2018 - 02:06 PM)

Well, at least hospitalization won't send you into bankruptcy. There's always that.

@  Tm_Silverclaw : (22 January 2018 - 01:52 PM)

o.O

@  wonko the sane? : (22 January 2018 - 01:40 PM)

And not happy anymore. 40 bucks on duties. Free trade my ass.

@  wonko the sane? : (22 January 2018 - 11:26 AM)

Yay! I should get my package from BBTS today!

@  Arazyr : (22 January 2018 - 10:50 AM)

Okay, now I get the snake thing. Thanks for the Pokemon reference. It was a bit after my time... 8^)

@  CastletonSnob : (22 January 2018 - 08:05 AM)

This is a Transformers fansite. Do you like big bots and you cannot lie?

@  Telly : (22 January 2018 - 03:32 AM)

no. was just making a silly/stupid joke

@  TheMightyMol... : (22 January 2018 - 03:22 AM)

Onyx is a stone. Onix is a rock snake. Do you even Pokemon, bro?

@  Telly : (22 January 2018 - 02:44 AM)

could be a rock made of snakes. we just dont know!

@  Foffy : (22 January 2018 - 02:15 AM)

He is a snake made of rock, though

@  Jetstream C-18 : (21 January 2018 - 08:56 PM)

No, Onyx is a snake.

@  Arazyr : (21 January 2018 - 01:12 PM)

Something I only just "got" last night: Of course IDW's GB Blackrock is associated with Onyx Prime. Onyx is a black rock.

@  Tm_Silverclaw : (21 January 2018 - 07:37 AM)

Bet a lot of military people won't want to work this monday. ;(

@  Pennpenn : (21 January 2018 - 07:27 AM)

It seems sort of intuitive for a lot of people because it's the first day in the week that you're working.

@  Nevermore : (21 January 2018 - 04:54 AM)

Germany considers Monday the first day of the week.

@  PlutoniumBoss : (21 January 2018 - 01:34 AM)

The judge obviously had a more material motive than the one he claimed, there need to be some serious investigation of that case.

@  Tm_Silverclaw : (20 January 2018 - 05:04 PM)

The reason is even worse. :(

@  SHIELD Agent 47 : (20 January 2018 - 04:34 PM)

That moron is a shame to his profession.

@  Tm_Silverclaw : (20 January 2018 - 09:34 AM)

I just think a Judge going on and Jury Tampering, trying to make the Jury think a sex taffiker is innocent is sickening. *won't say why he did that as that goes in P&R*

@  Sabrblade : (20 January 2018 - 09:21 AM)

Heh, the schedules for my work weeks begin with Saturday

@  wonko the sane? : (20 January 2018 - 07:01 AM)

Thing about the US is... you can say that any time you want as much as you want. You're still going to get shot, but it might not be because you said that though.

@  NotVeryKnightly : (20 January 2018 - 02:20 AM)

You just did.

@  Tm_Silverclaw : (20 January 2018 - 02:18 AM)

Can I just say that right now... I hate the USA?

Deathy's, Transformers toy ideas for 2010 & beyond.

(1) Overlord: a updated homage new mold based off the character/toy
designs from the Japanese Takara Masterforce 1988 toyline/cartoon
series.
packaging,both voyager sized toys will be packaged together & sold in
a leader sized box+price point.
A voyager sized black long nose stealth jet similar in design to the
1988 masterforce overlord black jet.
A Voyager sized dark brown+white tank design similar in design to the
1988 materforce overlord tank design.
Keeping true to the 1988 materforce overlord neither vechicle will
have a seperate/individual robot mode.
each voyager sized vechicle will have a animal alt mode. I'd envision
the black stealth jet would be able to transform into a T-rex/
brontosauras type dinosaur. while the tank would be able to transform
into a lion.
they'll be a combined mode like the 1988 masterforce overlord has.
both the tank & jet will combine to form a huge robot. i'd envision
the combined process will be similar to the energon 2-in-1 voyager
combiners. the black jet will form the upper robot mode,while the tank
forms the lower robot.
The main reason I decided to add a animal alt mode. was because I
figured the kids would find a jet or tank with no individual robot
mode booring. just trying to make the original concept more exciting
for the kids.
they'll be 2 mini-con that are included with this figure. they'll be a
few mini-con ports on the toys. they'll be 2 mini-con ports on the
left & right upper chest of the combined overlord robot mode. for each
mionicon to attach to like breast plates. similar to what armada
tidalwaves minicon does.
I'm not certain if I want both minicons to have vechicle or animal alt
modes.
either way both minicons will combine to form a gun for the combiner
robot overlord to hold in his hand.
repaint idea for overlord: Starscream & megatron combine to form
galvatron.
autobot recolor idea for overlord: sky & lynx combine to form skylynx.
(2) Victoryleo & starsabre combine to form victorysabre: a updatted
homage new mold based off the 1989 Takara generation 1 toys.
Victoryleo & starsabre would be sold seperatly as voyager sized toys.
Both voyagers combine to form starsabre.
victoryleo would still transform from a lion into a robot. starsabre
would still transform from a jet to a robot.
I prefer victoryleo split up into combining armor pieces similar to
the was the year 2004 energon voyager sized "wingsabre" does.
(3)Takara Master piece Rodimus Prime.
a voyager or ultra sized race car/bot hotrod that plugs into a
trailer. the trailer can break up into combining armor pieces to
attach to hotrod's robot mode. to turn the figure into Rodimus Prime.
trailer would split up into the following combining armor pieces:
boots,forearms,chest+new head. back pack wing with rocket pack or flip
down shoulder canons.
toy would come with the following accessories: matrix of leadership.
hotrod's & rodimus prime's hand guns. attachable saw blade hand.
(4) 5 liscensed vechicles that combine to form menasor.
use either new mold alternators,new mold alternity,new mold movie
liscensed vechicles.
basically I envision 4 deluxe sized liscensed sports cars & one
voyager sized vechicle.
they'd be 2 color variations released: decepticons colored versions
would be stunticons that form menasor. autobots colored versions would
get those popular 1984 car autobots as a combiner.
(5)Predaking: 5 updated homage new mold 1986 G-1 Preadcons that
combine to form Predaking.
4 deluxes & 1 voyager sized toy.
keep all the original alt modes,robot designs & colors. add the much
needed poseable joints,higher sculpt & more paint apps.
I prefer there be no pop on/off accessories. instead have the combiner
pieces built internally inside each individual figure.
(6) G-1 Galvatron: there needs to be a actual updated homage new mold
based off the cartoon animation designs of 1986 G-1 Galvatron.
the galvatron robot will transform into a laser canon alt mode.
the toy will be either voyager or $27 ultra size. the toy will be
beyond super poseable & G-1 cartoon colored accurate.
(7) Trypticon: a updated homage new mold based off the 1986 trpticon
G-1 designs.
A leader sized toy. toy would transform from
robotic T-Rex to battle station & then a robot mode.
the robot mode would have a outer dinosaur skull helmet with a inner
robot head with fanged robot teeth.
the T-rex would split down the middle like the G-1 1986 trypticon toy
to form the battle station alt mode.
maybe include a purple minicon sports cars that plugs into trpticons
dinosaur chest like the 1986 toy has.
please delete the electronic walking dinosaur feature that the 1986
trypticon toy had. instead add more poseability in robot & dinosaur
mode.
repaint ideas are as follows: 1986 overkill,grimlock, 1992 takara
brave dino-geist,BW Megatron.
(8) Sixshot: a updatted homage new mold 1987 sixshot toy.
the toy needs to be either $27 ultra sized or leader size due to it's
transforming 6 alt modes.
toy would be a super poseable 6 changer. maybe get rid of a original
1987 vechicle mode in favor of a new animal alt mode.
perhaps the toy could transform into more realistic better designed
alt modes.
my 6 alt modes would be as follows: robot mode,winged
wolf,jet,tank,dragon
& gun
i'd prefer a perfect infusion of rounded off parts infused with blocky
parts. the upper robot arms & upper robot legs would be all round &
muscular looking. the robot forearms & lower legs would be more
blocky. the wolf claws would be more sharp & claw like. the wolf head
this time would look more organic & would have wolf ears & fanged
teeth. the robot upper chest would be blocky while the lower stomach &
waist is more rounded off.
weapons the toy would come with would be as follows: 2 huge hand gun
riffles & one large sword that could also form the wolf's tail.
(9)Takara brave 1992 Dinogeist. a updated homage new mold based off
the takara "brave" toy line dino-geist toy.
have the toy be in the leader class size level.
basically follow the original 1992 toy designs down to the letter.
only add the much needed poseability like as follows: poseable wrist
+fingers,universal shoulder joints that go up/down & split/extend out
to the sides in/out. universal hip upper leg joints that enable the
legs to walk forward/backward & split/extend out/in. elbow,knee &
ankle joints. rotate 360 degree swivel joints in the arms & legs. ball
jointed robot head joint. rotate 360 degree swivel waist joint. tons
of poseable added to the dinosaur alt mode in the dinosaur legs,feet
head & upper arms.
YOU MUST KEEP & DUPLICATE THE 1985 Grimlock T-REX dinosaur head+neck
that the 1992 dino-geist toy has. have the mouth open & close,with
fanged beast teeth.
Jetmode,robot mode & dinosaur mode must look similar to the 1992 dino-
geist toy. with the same pop out/flip up weapons & accessories.
same colors from the 1992 dino-geist toy must be used on this
upadatted homage version.
(10)shockwave,a updatted homage new mold based off the 1985 shockwave
toy designs.
a robot that transforms into a laser space gun.
voyager sized with tons of poeability. modeled after the 1985 toy &
cartoon designs. proper honage colors used.
please no electronic sounds or light up features. there just annoying
& take up too much of the sculpt+poseabilty toy design budget.
(11) 1987 "horrorcons" apeface & snapdargon: updatted homage new molds
based off the designs of the 1987 trippple changer "horrorcons"
headmasters apeface & snapdragon.
individually sold voyager sized toys. they wont combine with each
other.
each figure will include a headmaster that transforms from humanoid
form to robot head then to beast head.
snapdragon & apeface will look very closely like there 1987 G-1 sculpt
designs. perhaps round off parts more,make e'm sleeker looking.
definatelly make e'm more super poseable than what there were in 1987.
keep the colors schemes true to there 1987 toys.
snapdargon will transform into a dragon,then robot then jet. apeface
will transform into a ape then a robot then a jet.
jet cock pits will open for headmasters to sit in. the robot chest
will flip down to show a tech spec reading when the headmaster becomes
the robot head.
repaint ideas: a recolor using the apeface mold could be 1998 optimal
optimus.
a recolor using the snapdragon mold could be grimlock,overkill,bw
megatron,dino-geist,trypticon.
(12) a masterpiece style Sixshot updatted homage new mold toy.
toy would be beyond super poseable.
have realistic vechicle alt modes.
very sleek & ninja designed.
leader sized figure.
comes with tons of cool weapons like: sword,chinese stars,riffle guns. perhaps have the electronic light up features inside the sword & 2 guns.

All I want is more Energon style combiners.
