yeah, at the time im posting this, theres a "2" next to it and me and fruitloop are shown to be the 2 people reading it

@  Telly : (23 April 2017 - 03:33 PM)

Re The Rise of Cobra: I like bad movies and action sequences involving elite ninjas, so I watched / fast-forwarded through it on Netflix a couple of years ago.

@  Fruitloop Mu... : (23 April 2017 - 03:23 PM)

Can anyone tell me why the Shoutbox has a notification (a "1") when I login sometimes? I scroll through and don't see anything addressed to me. What does it mean?

@  ▲ndrusi : (23 April 2017 - 01:33 PM)

I miss the 2000s when my local stores got new toys more than once a year.

@  NotVeryKnightly : (23 April 2017 - 01:09 PM)

I mean, it might be hard to not know about something before release at all, but the degree of familiarity that you described is only attainable if you intentionally seek things out.

@  NotVeryKnightly : (23 April 2017 - 12:59 PM)

That's at least partially your own fault. The "in motion" part sounds like you even watched videos, which require conscious effort, unlike pictures that might be hard to even avoid.

@  Bass X0 : (23 April 2017 - 12:22 PM)

I miss the 80s where the first time I ever saw Transformers toys was on the toy shelves and hadn't already saw the toy from every angle and in motion several months beforehand. It made seeing a toy in the store something very special to me that I can't recapture now.

@  Evac : (23 April 2017 - 12:14 PM)

I could see Generations becoming a TRU exclusive line, now that I think about it.

@  Xellos : (23 April 2017 - 12:14 PM)

Also, Generations weathered AOE, and the TLK line seems to be short as well, so I think we'll still be seeing some room for Generations.

@  TheMightyMol... : (23 April 2017 - 12:11 PM)

Titans aren't really wide-released anyway. About the only brick-and-mortar chain to reliably carry them is Toys R Us.

@  NotVeryKnightly : (23 April 2017 - 12:08 PM)

Isn't Trypticon still a long way from now?

@  Evac : (23 April 2017 - 11:57 AM)

They wouldn't let a big-ticket item like that get cancelled.

@  Evac : (23 April 2017 - 11:57 AM)

Counter argument: They still haven't released Trypticon.

@  unluckiness : (23 April 2017 - 09:25 AM)

But yeah, not having any big-name media means it's the most likely, although the premiere series packaging might convince retailers to dedicate more shelf space, kinda like SW Black.

@  unluckiness : (23 April 2017 - 09:24 AM)

I'd expect Generations to be the sacrificial lamb since they can't possibly stock RID any less.

@  RichardT1977 : (23 April 2017 - 09:06 AM)

I'm thinking the subline that doesn't have a movie or TV show will be the one on the cutting board.

@  RichardT1977 : (23 April 2017 - 09:05 AM)

Back to TF toys: the question is whether or not retailers will be willing to commit the peg/shelf space for three sublines. And which one will be sidelined if space is at a premium.

@  unluckiness : (23 April 2017 - 06:28 AM)

No idea.

@  Telly : (23 April 2017 - 02:59 AM)

Revengeance

@  TheMightyMol... : (23 April 2017 - 01:33 AM)

@  LBD "Nyt... : (22 April 2017 - 05:39 PM)

'Sides, we all know the best G.I. Joe movie is Street Fighter, even if people haven't realized it yet.

@  LBD "Nyt... : (22 April 2017 - 05:39 PM)

I thought it was... okay. Okay as a movie, kinda fun, but not quite really feeling the G.I. Joe. I heard the sequel fixed that, but I've yet to see it.

@  Daith : (22 April 2017 - 05:26 PM)

Not sure about others but tried too hard to mainstream the idea to the public, making Baroness and the future Cobra Commander Duke's ex fiance and her brother was stupid and convoluted, and the power armor was a bit dumb

@  SHIELD Agent 47 : (22 April 2017 - 05:14 PM)

What's the general opinion here about G.I. Joe: The Rise of Cobra?

@  Foffy : (22 April 2017 - 02:07 PM)

Did somebody mention wallabies?

@  Telly : (22 April 2017 - 01:38 PM)

"Walls of 'bee". walmart will be changing their name during movie time. they will now be called "walbee"

@  NotVeryKnightly : (22 April 2017 - 12:49 PM)

I'm pretty sure even Hasbro reps have admitted that they went overboard with Bee repaints.

@  Rycochet : (22 April 2017 - 12:34 PM)

Parents/retailers want them, it's cost effective to produce them, therefore they get made. Walls of 'bee may not be what we want to see, but here we are.

@  Bass X0 : (22 April 2017 - 12:29 PM)

That still doesn't justify all the barely repainted Bumblebee and Optimus Prime toys in slightly different shades of their standard color scheme.

@  Rycochet : (22 April 2017 - 12:26 PM)

The movie toylines are a necessary evil at this point, they help us get nice things so I can tolerate them.

@  TheMightyMol... : (22 April 2017 - 12:19 PM)

Eh, I'm more indifferent to the movies than angry.

@  Evac : (22 April 2017 - 12:04 PM)

Also, I highly doubt that. Judging by how some TR stuff hasn't been released yet (including Trypticon) and they're hyping up PotP for next year, what I'm assuming we'll see is Generations, Movieverse and RID/whatever the next cartoon is running alongside each other.

@  Evac : (22 April 2017 - 12:02 PM)

I KNOW WHAT'S HAPPENED! IT'S OBVIOUS WHAT'S HAPPENED! I WANT TO KNOW HOW WE CAN MAKE IT UNHAPPEN!

@  Telly : (22 April 2017 - 11:45 AM)

you are reacting to movies toys overtaking our beloved generations line for the next 2 years. and yes it is

@  TheMightyMol... : (22 April 2017 - 11:32 AM)

WHAT AM I REACTING TO AND IS ANGER APPROPRIATE?!

For the curious

http://en.wikipedia....luster_headache

If so how do you deal? After a couple of pain free years, its starting up in february, with the seasonal change.... like clockwork. I havent started getting the headbangers yet, just the dull ones. For me, no over the counter stuff works, it just makes it more intense..though sometimes shorter. I have been getting these things off and on since around 14.

The usually come everyday for 2-3 months, and stress, noise and bright sunshine make them monumentally worse. I have found that rubbing my head continously lessens the pain. Any one else deal with this?

PS...I did not start this for any kind of pity party, just curious. My head is starting a dull banging right now.

I've been having headaches since around elementary school. I tend to get some bad ones. I've also found massaging my head a bit helps. I think mine are stress-related and I've had a killer one for the last week now. I usually just take some Excedrin and take a nap. It will usually pass.

Thankfully I only get a few different flavours of migraines. Usually just take some acetaminophen with codeine and then a forced nap. Clears it right up and wake up to endorphins.

THANK YOU KAL!!! I got the above for years and years before I realized they were a type of migraine, since it came with no pain. I heard of ocular migraines a few years back and figured that was what it was, and that I wasn't going blind or losing bits of my brain or anything. Never thought to Wiki it, but not sure I would have known how to search properly if I had. Once it was obvious that they were a form of migraine, I figured I just got the good end of the deal since mine come without any pain. Down to once a year or less, so no biggie for my life (assuming it stays like that). Oddly, I'd explained it to an eye doctor and had a full exam, he just said there was nothing wrong with my vision. Very sorry for those with painful migraines.

I don't suffer from those, but I do get really bad sinus headaches. Starts in the upper nose region then works its way around the right eye. That's all I get, and far too often. Usually 3-4 times a week. Some are severe enough for me to get nauseated and such. I just take some alka seltzer cold medicine and stay in a dark room for an hour. That usually helps. oh and tea.

A dark silent room helps. The pain is behind my left eye and in my teeth also. I used to think it was toothaches, so I got my wisdom teeth removed at like 20. I thought I was cool, until a couple of years later and I got them again. You're the second person that has mentioned tea.

I was about 13 or 14 the first time it ever happened. Of course my parents were too busy to give a crap that I was GOING BLIND simply saying "You aren't going blind". Now, granted, they were right.. but for that hour or so it was scary. Then following the visual episode I got a migraine. Lasted 3 days.

Thing is, over time, the pain of the migraines subsided into mild headaches that last about a day or so -- if I act fast enough with caffeine and ibuprofen I can get by with no pain. I haven't quite figured out the trigger yet, but I've narrowed it down to certain kinds of herbs in some italian food. Also, high blood pressure will trigger it. Like if I drink NyQuil too many days in a row or if I take the wrong kind of allergy medication.

Yeah, I'm just glad to be in good company. Have to say, losing vision to one side while driving 400 miles from the Bay Area to Los Angeles is NOT FUN. But, finally realizing that I'm not the only person with these episodes about 10 years ago was a blessing, that's for sure. Despite having MRIs and other scans, there had always been a nagging feeling that maybe, just maybe, I had a SPECIAL kind of brain tumor that doctors didn't know about, or something similar. When I finally had a bit of a headache after one of 'em it was a huge relief.

hmmm.....I dont have hbp, but am in the risk category for it. Food for me doesn't seem to be a trigger, though I think stress is.

I have had headaches since, I dunno, beginning of february. I also suffer from blurry vision pretty much all the time, and I have been to doctors a lot, who all tell me everything is fine with my eyes... pretty maddening, truth be told. I am suspecting it's because I don't sleep enough, usually 6-7 hours on the workdays and more on the weekends only.

I thought that too, but my blood pressure is usually normal (or low) and I have had several blood tests and blood sugar was in normal range. It also doesn't get better if I eat sugar.

On doctor told me it might be that my neck cramps partially block the blood vessels there, I am considering to see a chiropractor to see if it helps - but I have bad experiences with them, once a a chiropractor twisted my head by grabbing my jaw, and it resulted in one of my teeth getting broken. icon-screamer.gif
