Thor was a great guy. Same as most of the Asgard. Loki was a jerk, though.

@  wonko the sane? : (26 May 2017 - 07:21 PM)

I think thor was just too smart to NOT call us stupid next to him.

@  Pennpenn : (26 May 2017 - 07:18 PM)

Six of one, half a dozen of the other?

@  wonko the sane? : (26 May 2017 - 07:17 PM)

I always interpreted that scene to mean that asgardians weren't capable of breaking down problems in the same way as humans.

@  Pennpenn : (26 May 2017 - 06:58 AM)

I mean, SG1 was a good show on balance. One of my favourite things was Thor admitting he found humans good to keep around because they so often came up with stupid ideas that nevertheless worked out.

@  Whirl Maximus : (26 May 2017 - 05:59 AM)

Those episodes were 1969 and 2010.

@  Whirl Maximus : (26 May 2017 - 05:59 AM)

Stargate sg1 was loosely based on the movie, it thrived on continuity it was impressive how old situations and solutions would come back in unexpected ways. Continuum had it's villain use the characters own solution in two previous episodes against them.

@  Pennpenn : (26 May 2017 - 05:39 AM)

And yeah, name is based on a part of my surname. Can't remember why I picked it. Lost to memories of the primordial early 2000s.

@  Pennpenn : (26 May 2017 - 05:37 AM)

Like how Abydos in the movie is in another galaxy on the far side of the universe, but Abydos in SG1 is the closest world to Earth (and that was the only reason the gate could still get there) and even getting to other galaxies was impossible with the normal gates.

@  Pennpenn : (26 May 2017 - 05:35 AM)

I was very tired when I said that, but what I meant was a lot of stuff that is in the original Stargate movie is contradicted a lot in Stargate SG1.

I remember a fanfic that had Swindle as Lawyer.

@  SHIELD Agent 47 : (25 May 2017 - 10:08 PM)

No, I am referring to before Beast Wars: Uprising. I swear Swindle was a lawyer in a story before "A Brush With Infamy".

@  Telly : (25 May 2017 - 09:47 PM)

i cant get the link to work for the life of me. just go to the wiki and type "a brush with infamy" in the search box and itll come up

I swear I've read the story but now I forget which one it is.

When has G1 Swindle been a lawyer before?

@  Rycochet : (25 May 2017 - 07:20 PM)

All I know about PennPenn is he's so good they named him twice.

Nope.. Pennpenn is actually a Prinny dood!

@  Foffy : (25 May 2017 - 06:47 PM)

I wonder if Pennpenn is related to Sean Penn.

The prequel-creep from the original Stargate movie to SG1 is kinda funny.

There have been links to articles once or twice that I actually wanted to read but were cut off.

@  Robowang : (25 May 2017 - 06:49 AM)

True.

@  unluckiness : (25 May 2017 - 06:45 AM)

@  Robowang : (25 May 2017 - 06:40 AM)

Stupid Twitter.

@  Robowang : (25 May 2017 - 06:40 AM)

That explains why they are cut off all the time.

@  Robowang : (25 May 2017 - 06:40 AM)

Yuck.

@  Foffy : (24 May 2017 - 11:05 PM)

I mean, a large portion of the status updates are snippets of peoples' twitter accounts...

@  Steevy Maximus : (24 May 2017 - 09:34 PM)

I thought that was the status updates?

@  ▲ndrusi : (24 May 2017 - 09:18 PM)

Wait, I thought Twitter was the P&R shoutbox.

More people should state their age as math problems. I'm nine squared minus sixty-three.

@  Paladin : (24 May 2017 - 02:07 PM)

Yeah, I'm in a similiar boat. Got mine the week after Botcon at TRU, from the first batch in my area. And I too thought it was something deliberate. I certainly don't dislike how it turned out.

I threw my packaging away but found a card scan (below). It appears as though the "homogeneous orange" (great term for this, Silent_Magnus) is the "official" version. The card displays a Huffer toy with a hood that's the same shade as the rest of the vehicle.

I hope I get one with a matching hood. I never liked the orange hood on him.

The matching hood makes this look even more Machine Wars.

Yes. Now I want to dig Hubcap out.

Can anyone provide some more detailed photos, from multiple angles, of the homogenous color scheme? I have the non-matching one. I think I would like the matching more. (Not that I am going to buy another to get it, but I wonder.)

I was at two Targets and one TRU tonight and didn't see the matching version at any of the three. Granted I had stopped looking at the first wave PCCs once I had the ones I wanted, so I don't know if it's out in my area elsewhere.

doesn't bother me that his hood doesn't match, I just took it as some sort of fleet marking the truck he scanned came with...

makes him less of a "just off the showroom floor" bot like most TFs these days

Seems I'm in the Minority of liking the Homogeneous orange, as I find the dark orange hood looks really bad.

I personally don't really have a preference. I just thought it was amusing how many people prefer the mismatched hood.
It makes me wonder if things would have different if it was the running change.

That looks nice, if this were the change that Hasbro made I'd be looking for that one and not the yellow one.

I agree that that looks better, and would be the one I'd get if it was real.

Mine has matching hoods too. I think all international releases have that.
