@  wonko the sane? : (03 April 2020 - 12:41 PM)

It arrived! Yay!

@  wonko the sane? : (03 April 2020 - 11:25 AM)

Given how the virus lasts about 3-4 days on metals and plastics, it's about the only way to go about getting stuff right now. I ordered a monitor mount for my desk and the delivery has been pushed back twice already.

@  Maximus Ambus : (03 April 2020 - 11:04 AM)

He ordered it online, says it was to keep those delivery boys in business. I did the same a week ago with some Transformers Studio Series figures off Kapow. Don't know if it's wise or not considering.

@  wonko the sane? : (03 April 2020 - 09:12 AM)

You'd be the first. Everyone else has either been frustrated cause the one they wanted was sold out (like during boxing week.) or rushing to replace something broken.

@  RYNO : (03 April 2020 - 08:53 AM)

I actually walked into a store the other day and just randomly decided to buy at 32inch TV. It was just a Vizio, and grabbed a Mounting Bracket for it. No duress. Just a spur of the moment wanted a TV for my master bedroom.

@  wonko the sane? : (03 April 2020 - 07:31 AM)

Conversely: I've never met a person who wasn't buying a TV under duress... so... yeah.

@  wonko the sane? : (03 April 2020 - 07:20 AM)

I think I've met maybe two people other than myself who count cables before buying a TV.

@  Tm_Silverclaw : (03 April 2020 - 05:33 AM)

Seriously.. HDMI splitters and switches are so bloody finicky, but most tvs don't have enough inputs.

@  Maximus Ambus : (03 April 2020 - 05:09 AM)

Just spent a hour trying to get my brothers new Samsung TV to read his Playstation and Blu Ray player only to find he was using a HDMI splitter.

@  Sabrblade : (01 April 2020 - 08:58 PM)

This morning, for one of my online classes, I had to give a positive oral presentation about a play that I hated having to watch. I went into it completely unprepared and just winged it. My professor LOVED my presentation and thought it was excellent. She believed every word I said and honestly thought that I enjoyed that miserable play. Best April Fools ever!

@  Steevy Maximus : (30 March 2020 - 06:51 PM)

Not to be confused with Leader I

@  Steevy Maximus : (30 March 2020 - 06:50 PM)

He was Leader Uno

@  Steevy Maximus : (30 March 2020 - 06:50 PM)

He was the OTHER Leader 1

@  TheMightyMol... : (30 March 2020 - 06:29 PM)

Or Sideways.

@  PlutoniumBoss : (30 March 2020 - 05:26 PM)

On the other hand, this is Armada we're talking about. It could have actually been Metroplex.

@  PlutoniumBoss : (28 March 2020 - 11:08 PM)

Oh yeah, that was Fort Max. My bad.

Baja Blast is back at retail!

@  TheMightyMol... : (27 March 2020 - 03:47 PM)

Shame he wasn't around more. He seemed like such a jolly, happy soul.

@  PlutoniumBoss : (27 March 2020 - 02:16 PM)

No, he was definitely Metroplex. You could tell because he was in Metroplex's distinctive red and green coloration.

@  Paladin : (27 March 2020 - 02:11 PM)

that was Leader-1. or possibly Jolt. maybe Grindor...

@  PlutoniumBoss : (27 March 2020 - 01:57 PM)

Metroplex was in Armada, in a flashback. He was the same size as everybody else. I thought that was the joke.

@  Tm_Silverclaw : (27 March 2020 - 12:39 PM)

@Rodimus Supreme: Gah! You are right! How'd I get that mixed up? x.x;

@  TheMightyMol... : (27 March 2020 - 12:14 PM)

There is no Metroplex. Only Zuul.

@  Rodimus Supreme : (27 March 2020 - 11:13 AM)

@Tm_Silverclaw: There is no Armada Metroplex, he was in Cybertron.

@  Rodimus Supreme : (27 March 2020 - 11:12 AM)

And they'd be better off just retooling Metroplex and Fortress Maximus to be somewhat more accurate and changing/adding parts for interaction with later play gimmicks.

@  Rodimus Supreme : (27 March 2020 - 11:11 AM)

I honestly would prefer that for scale purposes.

@  Cyoti : (27 March 2020 - 11:07 AM)

They can redo all the CW combiners as Titan Class figures like Predaking/Devastator.

@  Dekafox : (27 March 2020 - 07:52 AM)

They could just redo Metroplex again too. Especially if it's going to be S3 based. They could also do another Primus to go with the coming Unicron.

@  OverDrive73 : (26 March 2020 - 10:56 PM)

If anyone is bored, or interested... I just added the last chapter to my fanfic comic in Allspark Pictures

@  Tm_Silverclaw : (26 March 2020 - 10:54 PM)

And no.. We could always get Titan Class Superion.

@  Tm_Silverclaw : (26 March 2020 - 10:53 PM)

We need Titan Class Transformers Armada Metroplex.

@  Telly : (26 March 2020 - 08:39 PM)

ill be surprised if scorpy isnt the last titan

@  PlutoniumBoss : (26 March 2020 - 05:57 PM)

Too bad a new character titan class figure is pretty much an impossibility.

@  PlutoniumBoss : (26 March 2020 - 05:56 PM)

I want a titan class, really good looking bucket wheel excavator. Like Cybertron Metroplex was supposed to be but didn't quite pull off.

@  wonko the sane? : (26 March 2020 - 03:32 PM)

I just taped up a shower curtain and took my first shower in three weeks. It was heavenly.

@  Rodimus Supreme : (26 March 2020 - 11:48 AM)

I would buy that...

Is Yasmin meant to be gay?

 

 

I think it's safe to say that some folks have been asking that question for a while now, but nothing's really been done to make it certain. The most specific thing I can think of what that her mother seemed... concerned... about a relationship between Yaz and the Doctor last year.

Understandable that Yaz's mother might be concerned. Yaz could end up dead, stuck in another dimension, or stuck in another time period.

This was the least bad episode so far. I think if Yaz was gay they'd be proclaiming it every episode to remind everyone each scene. If there's one thing Chibnall isn't, it's subtle

Agreed, but it didn't really feel like that was the issue....

We've already had an openly gay companion.  It seems strange to tiptoe around the matter now.  Unless Yaz herself is struggling to come to terms with the idea, in which case it should come up explicitly sooner or later.

Yaz might just be bi-curious, though. Not saying she isn't gay, just saying until someone states it for certain...

I'm really not feeling this season. The Doctor is wonderful, but I think there is a problem with the writing. Particularly with the companions. The companion is normally the insert for the audience. Going to a strange alien world, we don't know anything but everything is new and exciting. Danger happens, we are scared, then the Doctor saves us. Having the companions be more independent ruins that formula for me.

So, yeah. We watched the latest episode last night, and I thought it was okay. Curious as to what is going on with the flashbacks. Also, when did the doctor have trouble dealing with just three Cybermen?

 

Looking forward to seeing what happens next week though.

Cybermen are like Ninjas. The fewer of them there are the more effective and dangerous they are.

"Nightmare in Silver" saw the Doctor have trouble dealing with just one.

 

Granted it was him. He was the Cyberman in that one.

Four had trouble with, what, 6 Cybermen? And it took the sacrifice of one of his allies to take out two of them with a cyber-bomb, and then the remaining three were taken out with the Vogon missile, while the Doctor was occupied with making sure that Nerva-beacon didn't crash on Voga's surface.

Five was forced into a desperate attempt to take out the Cyberleader after he'd already set the Earth-frieghter on a collision course, and commandeered the TARDIS, and it took the one-two punch of Adric's badge plus the Cyber leaders own weapon to take him out.

Two incarnations later, and Ace is taking them out left and right with a slingshot and gold doubloons.

The implication for next week seems to be that Gallifrey gets taken over by Cybermen, thus futzing with time/space pretty significantly so I'd presume that incarnation of the Doctor, much like this incarnation of the Master, are byproducts of a Cyberman-style Great Time War.

With the Cybermen need to constantly upgrade you'd think they would eventually get to the point were they would cast off their greatest weakness and no longer require hosts to make more. They already made plenty of other robots that don't need hosts such as mice and drones. Why not a full robot?

Good point, hmmm. What if they made non-human Cybermen to capture humans and turn them into Cybermen? That way they can continue to make Cybermen even after the human race goes extinct.

. . .Wouldn't it make sense for the Cybermen to assimilate Gallifrey? The Cybermen would simply keep regenerating, if the squishy parts were Time Lords. Right?

Going by Nightmare in Silver the answer is yes. Plus that was set in a time after what we are seeing now.
