I just hate Facebook.

@  Confuzor : (26 July 2017 - 01:25 AM)

I hate when follow a link to an article from Facebook it has all this extra junk in the address box, so if I want to copy/paste to send to my friends via text, I have to go hunt down the "permalink" so it's a more manageable size

@  SHIELD Agent 47 : (24 July 2017 - 08:52 PM)

*sigh* Yup.

@  Foffy : (24 July 2017 - 06:16 PM)

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.

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.

I don't know about Paladin, but I personally am fueled by the rage of fans who have a very specific idea of what a Transformers toyline should be.

What do you mean too good? I don't recall lots of Micromaster updates.

i remain unconvinced. "if it sounds too good to be true, it usually is."

At least in Canada, they have excellent customer service.

@  Maruten : (23 July 2017 - 11:33 PM)

I've ordered from them several times with no problems.

@  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?

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

I'm planning on picking up the Last Stand of the Wreckers TPB this week or next. I've read Stormbringer, Infiltration-Revelation and Maximum Dinobots (+Spotlights), but skipped AHM and the current ongoing. Am I going to be missing much when I read LSotW? Is this series an off-shoot of the current ongoing (like the Bumblebee mini)?

Thanks,
Bob

I've never picked up a single issue of IDW other than skimming Wiki and flipping pages in Stormbringer at Barnes and Noble, and I had no trouble following the story. It's pretty well self contained beyond references to characters getting in and out or the Phase-Sixers. Given how much you've read, sounds like you are more than up to date enough for Wreckers icon-hotrod.gif

Yeah, AHM has very little to do with it, and, thus far, it's not really tied into the Ongoing (I think Magnus's bit in ongoing takes place after LSotW, maybe?).

Recommended reading for maximum enjoyment would be Spotlight: Kup and All Hail Megatron issue 15 (first half only). Both written and drawn by Nick Roche, one of the LSOTW masterminds. Not required reading, however.

Basically, there's just two things to know about AHM as it relates to LSotW

-It involves a big Decepticon push against Autobot forces across the galaxy, and the opening of Wreckers takes place during one aspect of that push.

-The end of Wreckers features a piece of information that wasn't detailed in any of the books you've read. It occured at the end of AHM.

Good point on Hunter. As for Kup's cy-gar, I think anyone looking at it would just assume it was the Transformer version of a cigar. (Which it is, the story behind Kup's using it notwithstanding)
