He's actually interfacing with the public and is generally charismatic. He's no more effective than harper, but at least he can work a room.

@  Locoman : (23 January 2018 - 12:39 AM)

-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)

Germany considers Monday the first day of the week.

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

we're lucky to met FPJ's boss at fans party,I've asked question about their future products.
1.remember Junkions we've seen before?three characters,elder,male,female,all from robot to motocycle,ride on each other
2.remember prehistory gestalt we've seen before?still design stage,they want this set has the feeling like G1 gestalt toys,but plus more funs.they are considering this gestalt can exchange limbs with Seacons.
3.remember broadside we've seen before?we will see prototype soon,but our conversation interrupted by others.


So FansProject is still working on the Junkions, Prehistoric Combiner, and Broadside robot. The Combiner can exchange limbs with Scramble City type Combiners.

So is this Targetmaster Optimus a tiny Optimus who turns into a gun, or a big Optimus with a gun that turns into a guy, or a weirdly misnamed thing, or what?

Also that Constructicon image tells me nothing except that there will be a shovel involved.

The Constructicon is intreguing. I'd like to see more and know more about him. How big is he? What's his robot mode like? Is the the first of more to come? Will he combine with friends?

I know we don't have the answers to those questions yet. Just wanted to pose them while they were on my mind.

Ooh, wonder if these are replacement Constructicons for Classics/Energon Devastator, ala the "Swindle" and "Blast Off".

I have to say, this group of fans keeps the bar high for creativity. Rather than shrinking molds or adding new wings, they invent cool new stuff that works within the world of TF.

I know it's unlicensed, but goddamn does that SD Optimus look nice. When they first showed the original idea, with the monkey head, my immediate thought was, "That would look a LOT better with the real head." There's a shortage of cool SD transforming Transformers. Very tempted to get one. Sorry Hasbro! /=)

The Headmasters and Targetmaster are an easy pass. Constructicon guy looks interesting--maybe something along the lines of FP's Bruticus?

Judging by the pictures, the heads appear to be compatible with G1 Headmasters. Pick your Headmaster body of choice.

Yes, he said Soundwave transforms into his alt mode, he just didn't get to snap a picture.

Given the name and the tinyness, Targetmaster Prime apparently transforms into a gun, like the Perfect Effect Rumble/Frenzy toys.

They need to release a Targetmaster for Classic Rodimus.

Another idea is a Targetmaster for Alternators Rodimus that turns into a humanoid who can drive the car?

With all these new Headmaster heads, someone needs to make a simple, articulated "drone"/Transtector headless body that can have any Headmaster attach to it. Make it in several colors. Then you can use it for things like these guys or Snake/Cobra/Hothead, whatever.

Other then making funny pics showing Optimus with his Target/Headmasters stating "Stop playing with yourself!" I see no reason for these toys... Why would we want to put a G1 Prime or Soundwave head on another headmaster's torso? There aren't even headmasters for whom Prime's head would look on. Maybe Hosehead, but he is a smaller type of headmaster.

What WOULD have been amazing if they made a fusion cannon for G1/Classics Megatron that is a targetmaster. I designed such a toy for a friend of mine.

All intriguing, but I am sure the price range will continue to be far too prohibitive for me to afford any of them. Which is sad since I love me some new combiners and could use a head for my headless dudes.
