Past 8 years? Try "past 241."

@  Xellos : (19 January 2017 - 06:44 PM)

So basically the same as the past 8 years. Guess that works too.

We as a nation either drank too much or not enough. It's difficult to say, really.

@  PlutoniumBoss : (19 January 2017 - 06:10 PM)

Isn't America being crazy drunk how we got in this situation in the first place?

@  BlackMax : (19 January 2017 - 04:18 PM)

I plan on being very American about every single injustice our new leader perpetrates ("American" of course meaning "annoyed and loud").

@  TheMightyMol... : (19 January 2017 - 02:38 PM)

I plan to just stick my fingers in my ears and pretend I don't hear anything.

@  Bass X0 : (19 January 2017 - 02:26 PM)

I recommend America just get crazy drunk for the next four years. It's the only way you're going to get through them.

Take off and nuke the site from orbit. It's the only way to be sure.

@  Locoman : (18 January 2017 - 03:58 PM)

In the beginning new Subways were only built every twelve months. Then six, then three. Then every two weeks. In four days we could be seeing a new Subway every eight hours until they are coming every four minutes.

@  TheMightyMol... : (18 January 2017 - 03:44 PM)

One bite is all it takes.

@  Locoman : (18 January 2017 - 03:44 PM)

I'm a little worried by how many Subways there are in my vincinity. Like, there are two within walking distance of my house, and I pass about four of them on my way to work

@  TheMightyMol... : (18 January 2017 - 03:41 PM)

I'd almost rather eat the corpse, but then again, it's probably been eating Subway too, with my luck.

I've only had it once, but that was because I forgot to disable adblock on my tablet. Haven't had it otherwise.

@  Jalaguy : (18 January 2017 - 03:52 AM)

I only ever got it once, on the one PC, for whatever reason...

@  Noideaforaname : (17 January 2017 - 09:42 PM)

Not getting the Adblocker message anymore.

@  Kalidor : (17 January 2017 - 05:54 PM)

Starting now you shouldn't be getting the message any further

@  Kalidor : (17 January 2017 - 05:53 PM)

Did you still get it? It should be removed now

@  Telly : (17 January 2017 - 03:14 PM)

i probly shouldnt have said that...

@  Noideaforaname : (17 January 2017 - 01:15 PM)

That AdBlock message has popped up on my iPhone *without* any type of ad blocking, and the mandatory 30-second wait means I'm just not bothering with the site on there anymore...

@  BlackMax : (17 January 2017 - 12:05 PM)

So far it's only happened the one time for me.

@  Ms Virion : (17 January 2017 - 11:02 AM)

I got the popup on a tablet I just bought that I haven't even installed anything on yet. =|

@  Fnu Aw : (17 January 2017 - 09:50 AM)

I've got the same problem. I disabled my adblock on this site, but I'm still getting that message.

@  Jalaguy : (17 January 2017 - 09:38 AM)

I got the ad block warning on my work PC yesterday (with no blocking on), but not my laptop at home.

@  Patchouli Kn... : (17 January 2017 - 08:53 AM)

I wish the ads would stop showing me things I want but can't afford to have

@  Kalidor : (16 January 2017 - 11:15 PM)

Quite a bit of remolding that I guess nobody's clearly seen before outside of Botcon?

It's amazing how much better he looks than Inferno. Yellow just suits that mold way more than Red.

I'm just entertained how far they had to go to be able to even get the toy named close to the original name.

Wow! Hasbro went the extra mile in terms of retooling this guy! I wouldn't have expected anything beyond the new crane, but here we are with new hands, feet, forearms, and head. Very nice.

"Solar Storm Grapple" sounds like some kind of weird old anime series or something...

I keep wanting to see this name as a demented homage to the Phoenix King...

It does look nice!

Actually Movie Mudflap would be a better Erector.

This reminds me of Tenchi Muyo! GXP where Tennan finds out every lucky ship name has been registered and left with nothing else except one that sounds like jive.

Also Lord Bravery who had to change his name to Lord Smoked Meats and Fishes.

Feels like there should be a few more alt mode paint apps, particularly on the crane boom.

I appreciate the heavy use of remolding; makes me feel less dumb for buying a 3rd version of the mold.

Name change is hilarious.

Poor Grapple is completely defenseless, though.
Hasbro perhaps should've thought about giving him a gun-hand like the original toy/character model had.

You're far too young to be this bitter and angry at the world....

I'm reading that with Roy's voice. Heck, I read everything you post in a laconic Irish accent.

Too mad about the lack of a gun not that he was known for fighting, but he is a soldier. What with the way the hands are molded, it's like they were make to hold Wrek-Gar's handle bars?

Seeing as Grappel is now his 'offical' name, that sounds more like an adventure game command then a toy name.

Man he looks great!

I really hope Takara does a full on orange head and body. I'm still impressed with the amount of retooling on this guy, the head, the crane, the forearms, the panels on the arms, the feet. icon-hotrod.gif
