I'm kinda glad. A couple tie-in stories aside, Secret Invasion was a mess.

@  Steevy Maximus : (28 May 2017 - 07:23 AM)

Almost makes you wonder if some of the aborted Micronauts relaunch concept didn't slip in...

@  Whirl Maximus : (28 May 2017 - 07:20 AM)

Titan Masters could quite easily have been Transformers: Secret invasion, the return of the Mini-cons/Stentarians but noooooo, it had to be whatever the pit it is.

@  Pennpenn : (28 May 2017 - 02:59 AM)

Fairly sure I used too much flour. Oh well.

TMM, free shipping

@  unluckiness : (27 May 2017 - 07:33 PM)

Even if it's just 4 bucks, people shouldn't be patronizing obvious scams.

@  TheMightyMol... : (27 May 2017 - 05:37 PM)

What's the shipping price?

@  Steevy Maximus : (27 May 2017 - 05:18 PM)

Yeah, but it's cheaper than all the Hong Kong sellers running at $65+

@  2017 : (27 May 2017 - 05:07 PM)

It sounds like a scam.

@  Steevy Maximus : (27 May 2017 - 04:32 PM)

I know, RIGHT?!

@  wonko the sane? : (27 May 2017 - 04:23 PM)

Part of me is screaming "no", and part of me says "It's just four bucks, hit it and hope for the best".

@  Steevy Maximus : (27 May 2017 - 04:09 PM)

Hmmm,...do I take the chance on a copy of Gundam Breaker 3 Break Edition for $4 from a China seller with zero feedback?

Spider-Man toys don't do whatever a spider can either...

@  Pennpenn : (27 May 2017 - 04:38 AM)

Grax is only invisible when no one is looking at them. No idea what's wrong with your Xort.

@  Whirl Maximus : (27 May 2017 - 04:16 AM)

Titan Masters is filled with false advertising, Grax doesn't make any figure invisible and Xort doesn't do anything with gravity. Maybe they'll be in the Transformer toys of tomorrow which will be actual robots with AI.

Any particular reason TLK Voyager Optimus has his ass painted silver?

@  Echowarrior : (26 May 2017 - 09:16 PM)

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.

@  unluckiness : (26 May 2017 - 05:29 AM)


@  Tm_Silverclaw : (26 May 2017 - 12:48 AM)

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

@  Telly : (25 May 2017 - 09:40 PM)

grr. check the post above this one. stupid non working link and i cant delete shouts...

@  SHIELD Agent 47 : (25 May 2017 - 09:25 PM)

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

@  SHIELD Agent 47 : (25 May 2017 - 09:25 PM)

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.

@  Tm_Silverclaw : (25 May 2017 - 07:02 PM)

Nope.. Pennpenn is actually a Prinny dood!

@  Foffy : (25 May 2017 - 06:47 PM)

I wonder if Pennpenn is related to Sean Penn.

@  Kalidor : (25 May 2017 - 04:31 PM)

PennPenn - What are you talking about?

@  wonko the sane? : (25 May 2017 - 02:13 PM)

It's the only way for wisconsin to build it's population.

Prequel creep?

@  Pennpenn : (25 May 2017 - 09:47 AM)

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

@  Paladin : (25 May 2017 - 08:12 AM)

Does Blurr from the Drift mold do it for you?

I thought Blurr's new head looks better than his original head.

It's got a bit of a Hermes/Mercury thing going on, which definitely works for the character. Especially since the God was a courier, as well.

Ugh, I despise the shoulder pads turned up on that mold. It makes his already-proportional arms look ridiculously long.

Definitely not Blurr enough for me. I have no attachment to Drift at all, but I still consider that mold to be definitively him and not at all Blurr.

QUOTE(Bass X0 @ Feb 3 2011, 07:59 PM) <{POST_SNAPBACK}>
Its fine. If Drift didn't exist, I doubt an Earth mode for Blurr would have looked much different to the Generations Blurr that we got.

I think that if Blurr got his own mold, even if they did insist on giving him an Earth mode, his vehicle mode would be something not quite this different from his G1 mode. (Maybe. Considering the mode Galvatron got stuck with, maybe not.)

QUOTE(Bass X0 @ Feb 4 2011, 12:30 PM) <{POST_SNAPBACK}>
And I have to say...he really doesn't do it for me as a stand-in. Blurr was a sleek cybertronian sportscar. This Blurr is burly. He's clunky. Other than the head and the color, what really identifies him in a significant way to the G1 figure? Nothing that I can much see.

Nobody looks like Drift does. Yet Drift still had to be repainted. Head and color is the only thing that would identify whoever was the repaint if it wasn't Blurr.

RiD Hot Shot or W.A.R.S. Sure there'd be no particular resemblance in robot mode, but there isn't with Blurr either, and at least it makes a lot more sense thematically.

Still, when a character reformats their Cybertronian mode into an Earth mode, you expect there to be changes.

Classics Hot Rod says the changes don't have to be drastic. With any luck, Arcee (assuming she doesn't get to keep a Cybertronian mode) will be an example of the same principle.
Not that any Earth car is enough like Blurr's alt-mode to pull the same thing off with him, but that's exactly why he should just keep his Cybertronian mode.

Thanks man! I can't say that I can't wait until I get home, but I am looking forward to putting my Blurr like this to further differentiate him from Drift.

When pics of the shoulder pads turned up started making the rounds, I thought for sure that was how I was going to display him, but it's even more ridiculously long in person. Very gorilla-like.

This alt mode doesn't bother me at all especially since the car colors are done so well. It's just the head, hip armor, and shoulder kibble that don't feel quite G1-ish to me.

Not particulary. I wish they did Blurr in his original form.

I really like Gen. Blurr. Having him bodily mimic Drift makes a bit of sense, particularly since this is clearly based on IDW Blurr and they sort of became buddies. I just wish the mold's legs had a slightly better range of motion. Of the Blurr toys I have, only a modded Animated Blurr can pull off a really good running pose.

He makes a great IDW Blurr, but a poor G1 Blurr.

I don't really see him as a Blurr. To me, he's just Drift's twin brother w/ a sniper rifle. Forgetting that he's Blurr and treating him like a brand-new character let's me appreciate his awesomeness completely unhindered.
