@TM2-Megatron Yeah, it is like @TheMightyMollusk says. The catch is that usually means they can contain beef, and I confirmed it by pushing my luck. XD So... yeah, if going to the theater was about watching the film, it might be worth potentially resting on the balls of my feet while technically sitting in the chair, but put it all together... and I just wait to watch it at home. Oh, and ticket prices, always ticket prices.

@  wonko the sane? : (19 May 2018 - 10:24 AM)

woot woot! Korean barbeque for dinner!

@  TheMightyMol... : (19 May 2018 - 05:51 AM)

It's meat scraps. Whatever's left over from cutting up the more choice cuts.

@  TM2-Megatron : (18 May 2018 - 11:26 PM)

Well, the hot dogs Cineplex has (pretty much our only big theatre chain) around here are quite good, but I have no idea of the composition, and honestly, it's probably better that way.

@  Otaku : (18 May 2018 - 10:01 PM)

@TM2-Megatron In my case, shouldn't risk the hot dogs, either. Maybe if they are guaranteed to contain NO beef (can't digest it anymore >_<).

@Nevermore First time I have ever heard of this, but it sounds awesome!

We did that amongst ourselves in German class in college. We just called it "Germish", though.

@  Shrug : (18 May 2018 - 07:01 AM)

Nevermore, you've peaked my interest and I wish to subscribe to your newsletter

@  Nevermore : (18 May 2018 - 04:04 AM)

The term itself is an example: "English for Runaways" is supposed to mean "English for advanced speakers".

@  Nevermore : (18 May 2018 - 04:03 AM)

Think of it as the German variety of Engrish, only done completely on purpose for maximum hilarity. The target audience are bilingual German native speakers who a) understand the intended meaning and b) realize the absurdness of the end result.

@  Nevermore : (18 May 2018 - 04:02 AM)

It's basically the official unofficial term for deliberate mistranslations between German and English, done for the lulz.

@  Nevermore : (18 May 2018 - 04:01 AM)

Has anyone ever heard of the term "English for Runaways"?

@  Tm_Silverclaw : (18 May 2018 - 01:13 AM)

Okay... Seriously.. The Mystic Knights need a DVD release already.. I keep seeing them pop up in the most random of places.

@  PlutoniumBoss : (18 May 2018 - 01:03 AM)

Unfortunately no Squidkids at Sea World so no splat zones. Now that would have been a good brand deal to advertise in the park, and would have made more brand sense than friggin' Mystic Knights of Tir Na Nog.

@  Paladin : (17 May 2018 - 07:52 PM)

@  Tm_Silverclaw : (17 May 2018 - 06:53 PM)

Splat zones? ;)

@  PlutoniumBoss : (17 May 2018 - 05:05 PM)

It was wet from gallons of salt water. Splash zones, man.

@  TheMightyMol... : (17 May 2018 - 04:46 PM)

@  Paladin : (17 May 2018 - 04:42 PM)

do you serve orca meat with butter?

@  TM2-Megatron : (17 May 2018 - 03:57 PM)

I hope it was wet from butter

@  PlutoniumBoss : (17 May 2018 - 01:06 AM)

I used to work at Sea World in Florida, in the stroller rental warehouse, where we would regularly have to hose wet popcorn out of strollers. Popcorn hasn't really appealed to me since.

@  Steevy Maximus : (16 May 2018 - 07:36 PM)

Always bemusing to find a new laptop series at Walmart and then can't find ANYTHING online about it except for the press releases

@  Paladin : (16 May 2018 - 06:52 PM)

still sounds preferable to "The Hobbit."

@  wonko the sane? : (16 May 2018 - 06:15 PM)

I once farted so rank the guy behind me walked out of the lord of rings movie. Told my brother someone needed to sew my ass shut on his way out.

@  TM2-Megatron : (16 May 2018 - 06:15 PM)

If I couldn't eat popcorn, I have to admit that would remove part of the appeal for my going, as well. Although the theatre chain up here still has decent hot dogs, I guess

@  Tm_Silverclaw : (16 May 2018 - 06:12 PM)

Yeah.. Stomach issues is one of the big medical reasons for me as well.

@  Otaku : (16 May 2018 - 05:55 PM)

I rarely go to movie theaters anymore: besides being too fat to sit comfortably in the seats, I have digestive health issues. No popcorn at all. >_<

@  Tm_Silverclaw : (16 May 2018 - 05:26 PM)

Medical reasons.

@  Telly : (16 May 2018 - 12:49 PM)

why?

@  Tm_Silverclaw : (15 May 2018 - 04:37 PM)

I can't even go the theater anymore really.

@  TM2-Megatron : (15 May 2018 - 03:29 PM)

Personally, I like the short wait. As much as I still enjoy going to the theatre, I also like getting movies at home as soon as possible

@  Bass X0 : (15 May 2018 - 03:12 PM)

Just found out John Mahoney (Martin Crane in Frasier) died earlier this year. That's sad.

@  wonko the sane? : (15 May 2018 - 02:59 PM)

I don't think I'm ever going to get used to the turn around time on new movies making it to home formats.

@  TM2-Megatron : (15 May 2018 - 02:37 PM)

Only for Steelbooks and whatnot, anyway

@  Telly : (15 May 2018 - 02:23 PM)

picked up black panther on bluray. walmart had little signs next to the price sticker saying theyre actually limiting copies of it to 2 per customer. ive never seen that on a movie before

@  Paladin : (14 May 2018 - 07:33 AM)

more and more i'm starting to wish i'd become an alcoholic years ago.

@  Otaku : (14 May 2018 - 06:31 AM)

The sad thing is that I sometimes think a little social drinking by others puts us on even footing. I'm sure you're all shocked (which emoticon do i use for sarcasm again?) that I'm not good at social situations, and either I clam up or say too much, can't read the room, etc.? XP

@  Nevermore : (14 May 2018 - 12:21 AM)

I don't drink for a variety of reasons. Family alcoholism, can't stand the smell, don't like what it does to people, etc.

@  Waspinator : (13 May 2018 - 11:15 PM)

It's not always other people caring about you not drinking that makes it awkward. You can make yourself feel awkward by not doing something everyone else is doing without anyone even trying to make you do it. Peer pressure doesn't have to be intentional, the desire to fit in can make you do it to yourself.

@  Plokatron : (13 May 2018 - 10:57 PM)

@Pennpenn Same here. I just don't see a need to drink hard stuff even if it's as simple as one sip. Two reasons one I'd probably be as much a lightweight as Doc. Brown and two my uncle was killed in a car wreck due to a drunk driver and I've made a promise to my mother to never drink unless it's very special. I'm even less tolerant of Smoking or chewing Tabaco since my dad had cancer twice due to chewing learned his lesson after he survived round two. And before I get the naysayers on this the doctors specified to him that it was chewing that screwed him up. His genes did have a possible trigger in them that coulc of gone off but according to the docs it only mutated after he started chewing.

@  Tm_Silverclaw : (13 May 2018 - 08:06 PM)

I have enough problems with Diabetes messing with me.. Don't need alcohol adding to it. ;)

Here's something that's been puzzling me:

On the splash page of B&W preview art for Infiltration #3, does anyone have any idea who the second Autobot from the right is? It looks like his alt mode is a Ferrari Testarossa, so it *could* be Freeway of the Throttlebots, but it's hard to tell with his back turned. icon-depth.gif

Well, logically, it has to be either Sunstreaker or Wheeljack.

...because they're the only remaining confirmed members of the cast. I believe it's Wheeljack, because you can see Sunstreaker in the full-size preview pic posted online a while ago:


"I will not be pushed, filed, stamped, indexed, briefed, de-briefed, or numbered! My life is my own!"
-- No. 6, Arrival

So, looking at the preview pic on IDW's website (the Art du Jour mentioned on the front page) for Infiltration #4, it looks like Bumblebee has a female hologram. That's...odd...

Maybe for Beast Wars. I certainly doubt we'll see a retrofit of MTMTE for G1 -- it was very tied to Dreamwave's continuity, has the old designs (butchered, in some cases, by the art and colouring) but is recent enough that IDW probably wouldn't want to target the same market.

Cybertron... would probably depend on whether they did a Transformers: Cybertron comic.

edit: Mass-market comic. I think they're doing something for the fanclub.

I don't think anyone answerd this on the old board so I'm going to ask again:

Does anyone think that it's odd that Thundercracker has blue optics when it seems like IDW is going with the 'bots have blue and 'cons have red and yellow? Could the picture in the lineup be some kind of foreshadowing? Like how Ratchet pointed out that he was just a grunt and didn't take perverse pleasure in hurting others like Runabout and Runamuck. Or am I just grasping at straws? icon-depth.gif

I think this was asked recently but...
do the collected and reprinted Marvel UK comics cover all the issues? I thought I heard that they didn't, because they were initiated by one of the artists, so it only had issues he did. I take it then that there's little chance of the un-re-issued comics ever being re-issued?
I thought I remembered a list of issues the reprinted collected works covered, and it seemed pretty complete, at least for what they had released so far. are they not going to go all the way to issue 1?
of the USA Marvel run, I own originals of all but 2 of the 80-issue series. I've only ever seen a torrent for it once, and it didn't work.

IDW would be more likely to reprint the Marvel Transformers Universe, complete with the extra entries in the G1 comic.

Not quite sure what you're asking, so...

What's in the original Collected Comics issues:

Titan didn't reprint some stuff basically because Furman doesn't like his early work.

Kinda off topic, but I don't know where else to post this question:

Does anyone else do online comic subscriptions and have them mailed to your house? My only comic shop is about 30 minutes away and it is a pain in the fender to get to. I was researching some earlier today, but didn't find too much, plus I'm not sure how to get an incentive cover if I see one I like.

www.mailmemycomics.com sells TFs subs for cover price plus $1for postage (per ish), each one sent an insulated mailer. They only list Infiltration, but if you e-mail them they'll hook you up with Beast Wars, Stormwhatever & Hearts of Steel too.

So Hearts of Steel just got me back into comic shops, and I found and bought all of War Within Volume 2, having only ever read Volume 1. Should I bother to pick up Volume 3? I know it isn't finished, but are the 3 issues that were released worth picking up? Is there any kind of ending?

Well, it's fairly easy to see where things were going, because we got the solicitations at the time -- more would be discovered about what Megs had been up to, followed by Prime coming back and a big fight.

I'd wait to see if it gets a direct-to-trade conclusion first, personally.
