I'll agree with you on that.

@  -Wildstrike- : (25 May 2020 - 03:39 PM)

I fugured

@  Steevy Maximus : (25 May 2020 - 01:37 PM)

I'm actually sad Cyberverse won't get another season. 2 and 3 (of what I've seen) have REALLY nailed it in being fun little actions shows, like the Sunbow series.

@  Rycochet : (25 May 2020 - 01:00 PM)

Yes.

@  Maximus Ambus : (25 May 2020 - 12:52 PM)

I'm waiting for Animated season 4. Am I insane?

@  wonko the sane? : (25 May 2020 - 11:22 AM)

I'm waiting for the next season to show up on netflix.

@  Sabrblade : (25 May 2020 - 10:59 AM)

Many of us have already watched the rest of the Cyberverse episodes since the whole third season aired in the UK last September.

@  -Wildstrike- : (25 May 2020 - 10:18 AM)

@  -Wildstrike- : (25 May 2020 - 10:17 AM)

I just saw the 8th episode... omg

@  Bass X0 : (25 May 2020 - 01:28 AM)

Already seen it online.

@  -Wildstrike- : (24 May 2020 - 09:42 PM)

Who's excited for tomorrow? The only thing that makes Monday worth it is the Cyberverse episodes .-.

@  wonko the sane? : (24 May 2020 - 12:30 PM)

Welcome. I just came into that trick myself recently, so happy to share.

@  Nevermore : (24 May 2020 - 12:05 PM)

Thanks, wonko the sane? for the tip with the cloning. That helped a lot!

@  -Wildstrike- : (24 May 2020 - 12:02 PM)

Heheh.... yes... I don't think a sniper would be very good at making a vaccine... 0.0

@  Nevermore : (24 May 2020 - 11:48 AM)

All right! Cloning my old HHD to an SSD and then swapping out the drive was successful, it would appear. Finally.

@  Bass X0 : (24 May 2020 - 11:30 AM)

Scientist Perceptor is. Sniper Perceptor less so.

@  -Wildstrike- : (24 May 2020 - 10:51 AM)

Perceptor would be more responsible.

@  -Wildstrike- : (24 May 2020 - 10:48 AM)

Oof x~x

@  TheMightyMol... : (24 May 2020 - 10:45 AM)

He'd cure the virus, but he'd probably commit at least two crimes against nature and weaponize a third in the process.

@  -Wildstrike- : (24 May 2020 - 09:39 AM)

'Horrible consequences' would most likely happen with Brainstorm...

@  -Wildstrike- : (24 May 2020 - 08:16 AM)

Totally. And Percy's not even human. XD

@  TheMightyMol... : (24 May 2020 - 06:50 AM)

Can't do much worse than our current government, I say go for it.

@  Sabrblade : (23 May 2020 - 10:13 PM)

Little do we realize that the Perceptor in question is the Mini-Con combiner. :p

@  -Wildstrike- : (23 May 2020 - 10:11 PM)

He would!!!

@  -Wildstrike- : (23 May 2020 - 10:11 PM)

Horrible consequences? I... Doubt that would happen.

@  wonko the sane? : (23 May 2020 - 09:55 PM)

Even if he would come up with the answer by tomorrow.

@  wonko the sane? : (23 May 2020 - 09:54 PM)

I'd rather not deal with the horrible but unintended consequences of that.

@  -Wildstrike- : (23 May 2020 - 09:52 PM)

Lets let Perceptor make a vaccine for COVID-19. Who agrees with me :)

@  -Wildstrike- : (23 May 2020 - 08:43 PM)

I'll take your word for it. =D

@  TM2-Megatron : (23 May 2020 - 08:42 PM)

@  TM2-Megatron : (23 May 2020 - 08:41 PM)

I can't think of any instance where sanitizing a film is a good thing.

@  -Wildstrike- : (23 May 2020 - 06:42 PM)

@  -Wildstrike- : (23 May 2020 - 12:49 PM)

*watching everyone argue* O^O

@  fourteenwings : (23 May 2020 - 10:22 AM)

By that logic we might as well just get rid of the Shoutbox wholesale! I'd rather have like 3 or 4 things stuck for a week or so than one person dominating the whole thing (no offense Nevermore).

@  PlutoniumBoss : (23 May 2020 - 03:30 AM)

I would argue that "full of something one doesn't read" and "devoid of reading material" are functionally identical at the end-user level. :D

@  NotVeryKnightly : (22 May 2020 - 07:58 PM)

If it emptied, it would become empty.

@  PlutoniumBoss : (22 May 2020 - 07:53 PM)

It would be the same effect as if the shoutbox simply emptied once or twice a week.

@  NotVeryKnightly : (22 May 2020 - 07:27 PM)

I don't see how having walls of the same guy on top whenever I go to any page on this site is "refreshing".

@  PlutoniumBoss : (22 May 2020 - 06:10 PM)

I don't know, I find the occasional flushing of the box to be refreshing.

@  Telly : (22 May 2020 - 04:20 PM)

but its gets annoying seeing a wall of text from him that takes up most of the shoutbox

@  PlutoniumBoss : (22 May 2020 - 03:53 PM)

Eh, that's just Nevermore.

@  fourteenwings : (22 May 2020 - 12:11 AM)

@Nevermore: Good rule of thumb is if you feel like you need not just multiple statements but also multiple shouts to make a point, best just make a thread.

@  NotVeryKnightly : (21 May 2020 - 05:36 PM)

Dude, do you just, not know when to stop?

@  Nevermore : (21 May 2020 - 03:35 PM)

Instead of "I have only ten hours to get all my stuff from place A to place B", it's more like "I temporarily stored 90% of my stuff in easily accessible place C in my spare time, so now I have ten hours to get the remaining 10% of my stuff over to the new place before permanently saying goodbye to the old place".

@  NotVeryKnightly : (21 May 2020 - 03:33 PM)

At these point you two are just repeating what you already said.

@  Nevermore : (21 May 2020 - 03:32 PM)

Again using my "moving apartments" analogy. If you can store the stuff you don't immediately need for everyday life somewhere else, it reduces the critical time of permanently switching your primary base of residence over to the new place because there's less stuff to move when the time comes.

@  Nevermore : (21 May 2020 - 03:30 PM)

Well, my main point is that it will speed up the system migration so I have A) less system downtime because there are fewer files to transfer before the new system can be up and running and B) it reduces the risk of something going wrong during the system migration.

That's what I don't get. Hasbro said to make him closer to the original would confuse him with Law and I don't quite see how. The blue-gray pants would be the only similarity. Surefire could still have the brown vest (though I think the Cobra SWAT/Steel Brigade vest would've been a better choice) and he needed a green shirt with LONG sleeves. He would've been plenty different from Law. Further more, why would Hasbro care that a tiny run, specialty figure looked like their main retail fig? It's not like people are going to say, "hmmm... I was going to by Law and Order at retail, but that expensive, subscription only Club figure looks the same so I'll buy him instead."

Dake, I don't profess to have any insight into this situation, but I imagine it was probably the reverse: if a fan-oriented collector's figure is too similar to a retail figure, people are going to complain, because they'd be paying more for something 3/4ths similar to what they can already buy at retail. It would be the equivalent of BotCon doing - I don't know, a G2 Jazz from RtS Jazz. A ~$60 figure in the same colors but with some slightly different detailing as a toy you can buy for $10? There would be endless grousing.

Maybe a better example is something that already exists, BotCon 2005 Deathsaurus. Not different enough from the toy you could get on eBay for $20, so demand wasn't particularly high.

Thinking about that mold used as a Botcon toy only gets me jonezing for it to be used as BW Megs one day. Oh dreams.

I do see Hasbro's logic here though. They're not ALWAYS out to "get us."

I see what you're saying but I guess in this instance it could've still been plenty different. The brown vest vs Law's gray plus long sleeves would make quite a difference - he'd really only be like 1/4 or maybe 1/3 similar icon-arcee.gif . Of course, we're going to gripe anyway as fans but still... what can ya do?

BTW, this is how Sure Fire looks in the Club fiction:

Heh, that panel is like a tamer version of Rob Liefeld's infamous Captain America pinup, looking at the angle the chest is drawn in vs. his head, arms and lower body.

QUOTE
DAVID LANE TOLD YOU TO POST THAT DIDN'T HE???????????

Probably not, but I'm okay with it. I'm always up to hearing about Joe fiction and considering how non-existant discussion is elsewhere I'm totally up to hearing more about it.



All in all, though, putting aside the character itself and the person behind him, I always liked the v2 colors better.
But IMO the Law parts just don't lend themselves well to that color scheme. Dake's idea about using the Shock Trooper vest and some long sleeves would've worked.

You're far too young to be this bitter and angry at the world....

I'm reading that with Roy's voice. Heck, I read everything you post in a laconic Irish accent.

I haven't read any of the most recent stuff but I really enjoyed the Big Lob stint last year (or was it the year before) and the last convention comic. All were very good and quite enjoyable.

I just got the November issue of the Joe Mag, and after realizing that I wasn't the only person feeling there's a lack of discussion about the Joe Club fiction, I decided it was high time to do something about it! Given that 7 of the 16 pages are comics (and because I wanted to give it an ongoing thread all to itself), I put it in the comics forum.

Go here to talk about it, or just find out what's in it!

My brother has Sparta, so she has the jacket that Sparta lacks, lighter hair, lighter outfit and a white shirt instead of green IIRC?

Looks nice, and it looks like they tried to combine the red hair with the blond hair for the strawberry blonde look.

Sparta has a green belt and boots as well. Cover Girl's gone with brown instead.

CG also has the extra belt with the pouch.

Covergirl is not bad, but I really hate the "skinny leg" uniform pants they gave all the RoC females. I'm thinking of swapping this head onto my Covergirl and then putting a different head on this one with new lower legs to make an ARAH accurate short-hair CG. Also, that head looks really familiar - I swear I've seen customs using it, is it from a Marvel female?

I think, like Barrel Roll and jinx, the Club is taking new sculpt heads and reworking them to make them capatible with 25th/ME construction. I would be VERY surprised if the club did any major changes to the Sparta tooling itself.

I do like they made the effort to make Cover Girl a bit more unique than "the other redhead"
