Best of luck man.

GOOD LUCK, NEVERMORE!

The election committee whose chairman I am has been preparing this election since February. There's no real gain for me either way, so I don't care that much for the outcome, but it's going to be a stressful day for me either way.

@  Nevermore : (05 May 2021 - 03:13 PM)

Wish me luck. Tomorrow is this year's supervisory board election at my workplace, and I'm the guy in charge of organizing the election.

I have two Overlords one was faulty with a melted foot and they never took it back but replaced it, I just checked the guns, both the handles seem to be turning white.

@  Telly : (04 May 2021 - 07:18 PM)

pansy. my trypticon AND scorponok took a header from 4 feet up and only had parts pop off that were easily reattached. guess 'cons are tougher...

@  tigerhawk : (04 May 2021 - 04:03 PM)

My TR Perceptor fell and the titan master peg in the leg snapped off. Fortunately I have the Legends one.

@  wonko the sane? : (02 May 2021 - 08:50 PM)

It's a fairly well known fact that "it's a wonderful life" only became popular after it dropped into the public domain. So, yeah, they probably did.

@  SHIELD Agent 47 : (02 May 2021 - 08:29 PM)

I read an interesting observation on Twitter. If it is the natural course of a human to grow into Grandpa Abe yelling at a cloud, but nostalgia also yields rose-tinted glasses for the likes of one's youth, then did Greatest Generation adults bemoan how Baby Boomer children loved box office flops such as The Wizard of Oz and It's a Wonderful Life?

@  Steevy Maximus : (02 May 2021 - 09:54 AM)

You’re traveling down a rabbit hole I dare not follow

@  Otaku : (02 May 2021 - 09:26 AM)

At the same time, with my almost non-existent knowledge of Japanese and how oddly some things translate, seeing "Gorgeous Giorgios Gorges" made me wonder if that would make it "JoJoJo"... which now has my brain terrified of a weird Bobobo-bo Bo-bobo/Jojo's Bizarre Adventure Crossover. @[email protected]

@  Otaku : (02 May 2021 - 09:24 AM)

It is always weird when things align.  This talk of Gorgeous Giorgios Gorges in the SquawkBox reminded me of King Gorgeous Gorge on the FoxBox.

@  -LittleAutob... : (01 May 2021 - 08:52 PM)

Nice

@  Nevermore : (01 May 2021 - 09:03 AM)

I got one even better: After that character by the name of Gorgeous Giorgios dies in a gorge, they name that whole area after him: The Gorgeous Giorgios Gorges.

@  tigerhawk : (30 April 2021 - 01:56 AM)

Paint apps did slide notably during TR, wave one's Titan Masters had detail but wave 2 onwards was absent of them. Wave 5's Ramhorn, Dreadnaut, Scorchfire and Aimless had detail but Murk and Hazard didn't, can't speak for Flameout as I got Legends Twintwist and Slugslinger.

@  kizudarake : (29 April 2021 - 04:50 PM)

Anyone here got any g1 jet fire parts for sale?

@  wonko the sane? : (29 April 2021 - 04:12 PM)

Other than a few overly tight joints, the paints apps are my single complaint about the generations line.

@  tigerhawk : (29 April 2021 - 02:25 PM)

I just saw Legends Leo Prime now I wish Titans Return Alpha Trion had a few more paint apps for ship mode.

Indeed.

@  NotVeryKnightly : (27 April 2021 - 04:59 PM)

CORVUS: considering that reply, I'm pretty sure this was just another instance of Bass posting poorly-defined drivel as if it were profound.

@  TheMightyMol... : (27 April 2021 - 04:24 PM)

Given the last year and a half or so, is it any surprise?

@  Bass X0 : (27 April 2021 - 04:12 PM)

People are snapping already it seems.

@  Kaon : (27 April 2021 - 12:15 PM)

I like the Shattered Glass Megatron's alt mode

@  CORVUS : (26 April 2021 - 07:30 PM)

I'd like to know what society he's talking about, and what qualifies as "nothing", TBH.

@  NotVeryKnightly : (26 April 2021 - 05:09 PM)

I don't see the point in such a poorly defined "everyone is terrible" statement. He's not complaining about any specific people or specific problems.

@  Tm_Silverclaw : (26 April 2021 - 05:06 PM)

I do not see anything about Bass's comment that felt a need for you to attack him.

@  NotVeryKnightly : (26 April 2021 - 04:35 PM)

Bass: does that "everyone" include yourself or are you just trying to act like you're better than everybody without actually proving anything?

@  wonko the sane? : (26 April 2021 - 04:10 PM)

Mostly it's "oh, don't say that right now" and "better learn when to duck".

@  Bass X0 : (26 April 2021 - 04:05 PM)

There's something to be said about society when everyones just an inch away from snapping over nothing.

@  Steevy Maximus : (26 April 2021 - 02:17 PM)

WalMart is a cruel mistress. Today she runneth over...tommorrow, she'll be barren as a desert.

@  -LittleAutob... : (26 April 2021 - 12:21 PM)

I love Wal-mart now- They have way more Transformers figures than Target- last night I came home with a WFC Authentic Wheeljack even though I was torn between wanting TFP Arcee and TF: The Movie Blurr, two figures I have never ever seen before-

@  Nevermore : (25 April 2021 - 06:49 AM)

@  Donocropolis : (23 April 2021 - 06:59 AM)

more like Saint GORGEOUS Day.

@  tigerhawk : (23 April 2021 - 04:59 AM)

Saint Georges Day.

@  Sabrblade : (21 April 2021 - 11:55 PM)

Glenn Morshower would agree. He goes to auditions with his shoes full of syrup.

@  wonko the sane? : (21 April 2021 - 04:28 PM)

Please, maple syrup can only improve alot of content.

@  Donocropolis : (21 April 2021 - 03:33 PM)

Well, not release it into Canada, no. You'd just get maple syrup all over it.

@  TM2-Megatron : (21 April 2021 - 03:21 PM)

what bothers me most about Canadian rights is that, oftentimes, the rights holders for certain content don't even seem to have any interest in releasing it

@  NotVeryKnightly : (21 April 2021 - 10:46 AM)

It'd be mostly the same even in a world with global copyright law, since even the shortest terms are very long.

@  wonko the sane? : (21 April 2021 - 10:39 AM)

You got me, I just want to watch cartoons without having to pirate them for once.

@  NotVeryKnightly : (21 April 2021 - 08:41 AM)

Also, how would copyright law standardization be enforced? I doubt any country's governments would be eager to start trade sanctions over it.

Finally got around to catching up on Re:Rise, so I can stop avoiding this thread (again). :p

 

There are 5 items in the wave but only 3 figures. The last 2 are how they distribute the AGE wears. One each, right? Nope. Titus and Spallow come together, purely as alternate wears for the AGE-1 Normal. Don't have that, you can't complete them. But it gets worse. The Titus beam effects are another item entirely, coming with extra weapons for the Zeta. Meaning if you're a Titus fan, you have to pray you can get 3 separate items from a gashapon machine.

And that predatory business model sucks because these are nice figures. Decent size, well articulated and use decent materials to represent the chest cameras. AGE-1 even has the alternate white torso piece it had after Flit stopped being the protaginist.

 

Sadly, that's how Bandai has been doing their gashapon assortments for a long time now, right? A figure per box, and their accessory sets in another. It's why even though I see these things being sold individually in stores around here I still haven't gotten myself to buy one to try them out - most of the time it's a 2-in-5 chance that I'd just get a bunch of parts that I can't use without the matching suit. :wtf

 

So yes, wave 3 in hand. Thoughts!
 

*snip*

I (still) haven't bought any GU figures, so I'm not too aware of the limitations of articulation. What seems to be missing and/or lacking (from both the first two waves and the supposedly revamped third wave)?

 

And to round this post off, have an EEEEEVIL MISUNDERSTOOOOOOD Gundam. :D

Trying to find a purpose for some 'bash fodder.  IE: I've got an Orgin Tri-stars hi-mo I'm going to throw Zaku fodder-bits onto.  BUT I've got to come up with a theme.

Considered that this is the command suit for a Zeon squad that are essentially pirates.  They raid federation supply convoys.  Problem is I can't think of any decent names for the squad.

Best I've come up with is 'Black Aces'.... which would be a Spade, Jolly-roger in the center, and an A in the right corner. 

 

If they are post OYW, how about Kycila's Revenge?  You can get a play off of Blackbeard's Queen Anne's Revenge.

 

They cut their teeth durring the one-year war, some operations continue until 0083, Titans bring to much heat and they lay low for a bit hoping to avoid any repercussions against their families.  Unfortunately their CO's family was on colony thirty.  Then things get really bloody, Piracy to fund insurgency with no quarter given.  Operate durring 1st neo-zeon war, and eventually the 2nd.

 

Okay... BETTER idea here....

Some history-channel inspiration focused on U-boat tactics called Rudeltaktik (which literally translates into 'pack tactic') that Germany used to hit supply lines during the war.  U-boats even earned the nickname "graue Wölfe" (Gray Wolf).

 Of course, there is already a wolf-themed Ace.
  But there are also 2 aces associated with Solomon and the color red... so *shrug*.

It wasn't really passing the torch. It was giving the old cast cameos and advertising their related kits.

Except ironically Nami, who is apparently mute now.

I have 2 complaints.

Made no sense having Misaki's sister show Hiroto's parents the livestream at the ceremony. As far as they know it's just a video game and they're there to honour a ceremony. So why would they care and why react to it like they new it had consequence?

It was likewise bad writing to effectively resolve the main conflict, then trash talk Alus so he'd get a second wind.

I figured Alus would invade GBN at some point.  Bout to learn a lesson in why you don't do that though.

 

Ironbite-also that Combined Gundam was god damn hilarious.  That's what you gave them GBN?

 

Just wanna put out how deeply boned Alus is.

Even with his Sacred Beast clones I don't think he's winning this one.

So..... RG Zeong was just announced.

 

One one hand, this adds a villain, and it is also not a Gundam based design.  Since it is the Zeong, it should also not have any issues, as this design is very simple, so it should have all the bells and whistles found in the standard Zeong.

 

On the other hand it's the Zeong, I can think of a lot of other mobile suits that would be a better choice to have been released ahead of it, like the Hyaku Shiki which is just perfect to show off an internal frame.

It's modern Bandai. It's almost certainly been picked so they can do a webshop Perfect Zeong later.

Glad they didn't just curb stomp Alus and went with an actual fight.  Would've loved to see more of the Psycho Dautless though.

 

Ironbite-especially it's merged mode.
