@  Shrug : (18 October 2017 - 10:47 AM)

I'm not saying they're the same. They're clearly not. But members of both parties do receive large sums of money from telecom companies. When it comes to net neutrality, the issue isn't solely bipartisan so much as it's Old Politicians that don't understand technology.  Republicans do seem intent on making it worse intentionally though.

@  Paladin : (18 October 2017 - 10:40 AM)

anyone who still says "they're both the same!" after the past 10 months is WILLFULLY ignorant.

@  Evac : (17 October 2017 - 04:34 PM)

If, say, Hillary or Bernie was president, we'd have a chance, but with the current administration... We're pretty much hugged.

@  wonko the sane? : (17 October 2017 - 04:19 PM)

@  Onyxstrike : (15 October 2017 - 09:03 AM)

Yeah, I might've forgotten that the Beast is pretty much just a mindless killing machine. That's pretty much what I get for going off of the TFWiki summaries without having actually read any of it.

@  tffan01 : (15 October 2017 - 08:34 AM)

@Onyxstrike Well, to be fair, the quality of the story aside, Beast Within illustrates the fact that Dinobots are feral in nature, with what would happen if they actually lost control. That's a character flaw in a way, correct? 

@  2017 : (15 October 2017 - 08:21 AM)

Send me a PM if you need help getting to the true ending, also.

Thinking about quirky robots occupies 30% of my brain's daily processing power. I can't remember birthdays and I never know where my phone is, but it's totally worth it.

@  2017 : (15 October 2017 - 08:03 AM)

Yay, I look forward to your dealings with quirky robots!

@  Strafe : (15 October 2017 - 08:01 AM)

Definitely, I started setting aside funds a month ago for the inevitable Black Friday digital sales in the Playstation and Xbox stores. Going to be ready this year, and that's one of the many games on my list!

@  2017 : (15 October 2017 - 07:30 AM)

Hey Strafe will you ever play Nier: Automata?

@  Onyxstrike : (15 October 2017 - 07:19 AM)

Plus, The Beast Within is overall not a very good story.

@  Onyxstrike : (15 October 2017 - 07:19 AM)

The problem is is that Victory's dreams are meant to prey on the Dinobot's character flaws. For instance, Grimlock downing every Decepticon in his path, but falling for Starscream's begging for mercy schtick, preys on his arrogence. What character flaws does The Beast Within prey on? Nothing. The entire premise of the book was to please the many fans who posed the many hypothetical "What if the Dinobots combined?" scenarios way back when, with a gratuitous death count to boot.

@  Bass X0 : (15 October 2017 - 05:51 AM)

What's wrong with wanting it to be a canon dream sequence?

Unofficial MP Soundwave in Development

I'm liking it. Wondering what the price will be like, considering how expensive regular MP figures are.

They pretty much sacrificed the alt mode for the robot mode. So now we get a giant micro-cassette player that has a robot's torso for the front of it.

If Titanium Soundwave wasn't so absolutely terrible, I'd be tempted to compare the two.

That's not big enough for the cassettes to be full-size 80s audio cassettes, as they were shown to be in comics & cartoons, is it?

Wish that was an official toy.

And, honestly, that it was Classics scale more than Masterpiece.

And that it came with an updated modern Laserbeak.

So, basically, if it were something ENTIRELY different from what it is, but looked roughly the same visually I'd love it.


-ZacWilliam, and it'd need to be about a third of the price it will probably end up being, likely.

I like it other than the fact that the tape deck looks a bit weird, but it's bigger than I'd really want since I don't particularly care about the Masterpiece scale.

I guess if they go for keeping the G1 cassette functionality, you either end up with a huge toy with a proportionate looking chest, or a slightly smaller toy with a really wide looking chest.

The original tapes were 1:1 scale because they were microcassettes, not full size cassette tapes.


I love the way it looks, but it's just too big. Have to pass. DAT HEAD, though.

I think it looks great. An excellent update to the G1 mold. The only thing that really bothers me is the location of the hip joints. They look too low. They should have gone the Gundam route and used front and back hip panels. This would have raised the hip joints and look better proportioned. I loved the updated Ravage we got with Hound. I'm surprised Hasbro hasn't given us an updated Laserbeak yet. Perhaps a clue that they are in fact working on a Soundwave update and that he'll come with Laserbeak?
How is it that we put man on the moon before we figured out it would be a good idea to put wheels on luggage?

Uh... that tape player really does not look significantly larger than the tape it would contain. And the perspective certainly is making it "look" bigger than it actually is, what with the woman's face well in the background.
