The reason is even worse. :(

That moron is a shame to his profession.

@  Tm_Silverclaw : (20 January 2018 - 09:34 AM)

I just think a Judge going on and Jury Tampering, trying to make the Jury think a sex taffiker is innocent is sickening. *won't say why he did that as that goes in P&R*

@  Sabrblade : (20 January 2018 - 09:21 AM)

Heh, the schedules for my work weeks begin with Saturday

@  wonko the sane? : (20 January 2018 - 07:01 AM)

Thing about the US is... you can say that any time you want as much as you want. You're still going to get shot, but it might not be because you said that though.

@  NotVeryKnightly : (20 January 2018 - 02:20 AM)

You just did.

@  Tm_Silverclaw : (20 January 2018 - 02:18 AM)

Can I just say that right now... I hate the USA?

@  NotVeryKnightly : (20 January 2018 - 01:34 AM)

There are languages where the days are named for numbers and Sunday is "one". Like Arabic.

@  Pennpenn : (20 January 2018 - 01:31 AM)

Isn't it sort of a religious thing for Sunday to be the start of the week but most people just go with the first day they go to work for the week?

@  unitremover : (20 January 2018 - 01:02 AM)

I feel like I've known plenty of Americans who'd say Monday is the first day of the week.

@  Pennpenn : (20 January 2018 - 12:57 AM)

Personally Monday will always be the first day of the week for me. The notion that Sunday is somehow the first day of the week seems completely nonsensical to me.

@  Pennpenn : (20 January 2018 - 12:57 AM)

I'm fairly sure it is in Australia, but that tends to get blurred because of US influence.

@  SHIELD Agent 47 : (20 January 2018 - 12:19 AM)

(It's Sunday here in the U.S.)

@  SHIELD Agent 47 : (20 January 2018 - 12:18 AM)

Anyone here live in a country where Monday is considered the first day of the week?

@  Tm_Silverclaw : (19 January 2018 - 08:40 PM)

Maybe?

@  Patchouli Kn... : (19 January 2018 - 08:38 PM)

But do they search barf?

@  BlackMax : (19 January 2018 - 08:38 PM)

Under water, the fish don't stink.

@  Tm_Silverclaw : (19 January 2018 - 07:42 PM)

I read that at first as "Everyone is a fish...."

@  BlackMax : (19 January 2018 - 05:56 PM)

I parsed it as "search barf" at first.

Netherlands? We got one hell of a storm here in Germany the other day too.

@  SHIELD Agent 47 : (17 January 2018 - 10:46 PM)

Also true.

@  Tm_Silverclaw : (17 January 2018 - 10:40 PM)

I hate brick and mortar stores around here.

@  SHIELD Agent 47 : (17 January 2018 - 10:38 PM)

But I like the feel of the brick and mortar search a bit more. And I can see inside packages at brick and mortar. True, Amazon has a good return policy, but I like buying once and settling.

@  SHIELD Agent 47 : (17 January 2018 - 10:37 PM)

I suppose I could save more if I bought more often from Amazon.

@  wonko the sane? : (17 January 2018 - 10:36 PM)

Closest I got to "free" was 30% off warpath, which just about lined him up to the canadian price had he ever shown up around me. The pile of loot saved me a pile, but it was still pricy.

@  Shrug : (17 January 2018 - 09:34 PM)

Yeah, I purposefully waited on them because I knew they'd be perfect "add onto orders to get free shipping" fodder. Already gotten two that way. Technically "free" and I barely had to wait.

@  SHIELD Agent 47 : (17 January 2018 - 09:21 PM)

That's how I feel about Prime Masters. Getting back into collecting last year taught me to be patient, which grants rewards most of the time.

@  Shrug : (17 January 2018 - 09:18 PM)

I want Starscream so hard after seeing him in person, but since he's the one being left behind by every other collector in my area, I feel like I can wait for a sale.

@  wonko the sane? : (17 January 2018 - 09:09 PM)

I mean: I maybe woulda jumped on starscream if I found a sale or something, but it wasn't a priority.

@  wonko the sane? : (17 January 2018 - 09:08 PM)

I only wanted the dinobots (cause... volcanicus.) but got saddled with three I didn't want due to the bundling. I'd still be waiting to order if I had waited on individual figures.

@  Tm_Silverclaw : (17 January 2018 - 08:27 PM)

Ahh.. I just ordered the whole case cause I wanted too. :)

@  wonko the sane? : (17 January 2018 - 06:49 PM)

Mostly PotP dinobots. Plus some stuff I couldn't opt out of to get those dinobots. And CW warpath... cause he was on sale.

@  Tm_Silverclaw : (17 January 2018 - 04:54 PM)

What ya getting?

@  wonko the sane? : (17 January 2018 - 04:38 PM)

Yay! My package from BBTS is in canada! I might even get it this week!

@  Tm_Silverclaw : (17 January 2018 - 01:18 PM)

Buying a pre-built computer you should be okay.. It's just the individual parts that jumped huge in price.

@  Paladin : (17 January 2018 - 01:14 PM)

well all the idiots who invested in "bitcoin" will be selling theirs en masse to make ends meet so you might be able to find something cheap if you watch auctions.

@  Benbot : (17 January 2018 - 12:59 PM)

Is now a good time to buy a computer? Or should I wait?

We've seen Hasbro lean towards CHUG and G1 style figures being painted to reflect their toys(Classics Astrotrain, MP Rodimus, etc) and we've seen Takara take those same figures and paint them to reflect their cartoon models. This question is inspired by that. If you were the product manager at Hasbro....which one would you choose/prefer?

I prefer cartoon overall, but I'd like it if Hasbro does toy and TakaraTomy does cartoon so we get both. Of course there should be leeway to make whatever deco look good and not omit details as a result (like the lack of painted details on MP Rodimus Prime's forearms and head come to mind for omitting details for trying to be really slavish to the original design).

I don't care for "accuracy" so much - I'd even take decos that are neither toy nor cartoon "accurate" but do the character justice overall.

Can you engage in a conversation in a Swabian pub? Most people from Cologne already fail at asking for directions in the Eifel region."

I do like things like Classics Megatron though, whose colors seem to be inspired by his Action Master deco and Fusion Tank.

I'm ok with either type of homage, but I don't necessarily want either. I just want a good deco for the character. E.g., I vastly prefer Classics Starscream to the later Universe cartoon-homage Starscream. I like most of the Universe deco ok, but I absolutely hate the upside-down Decepticon symbols. I hated it in the original show, and I've hated every instance where it's been repeated since. Meanwhile, the fact that Classics Starscream's deco doesn't match either the toy or the cartoon is just fine by me.

Cartoon/Show accuracy. I can't think of too many off the top of my head who looked better as toys than on the show. Maybe the Technobots, but then they barely showed up on the show...

Although, mentioning Toon accuracy, can we get Octane as Grimlock, Cyclonus as Onslaught and some of the other AKOM flubbs?
Clearing out some old TFs and Mugenbine in my BST Thread. You know you want some of these.

Obviously carton accuracy. But with certain car guys, I like the toy sticker details like Mirage's classic sponsor logos or Prowl's proper police details that both versions were missing. That's what Reprolabels is for, at least when they're not pushing their tacky original sets.

I love this idea.

I don't care where is get their inspiration form so long as one can look at the file product and say with out a doubt, "That is Nightbeat, just look at the colors and the distinctive head."

I'm generally happy with whatever looks good, myself.

But I'd really like it if we got nods to other continuities' versions of the character. But looking good comes first.

Nah, more like silver Jazz(Movie) or white Skywarp(Machine Wars). Stuff like that.

Or Armada Starscream colored Starscream.

Or a Bumblebee with black stripes. I like that idea too so long as they make them different enough that they could be some one other that Bumblebee Starscream or Jazz.
