@  Maximus Ambus : (05 April 2020 - 04:50 AM)

Actually on the subject, I've hard a lot of people refer to a 2011 film called Contagion that they think is relevant.

@  Maximus Ambus : (05 April 2020 - 01:11 AM)

Ah well, I'll stick to the classic British sitcoms: One Foot in the Grave, Til Death Do Us Part and They Think It's All Over.

@  TM2-Megatron : (05 April 2020 - 12:53 AM)

There's always the original, cheesy as it is

@  Tm_Silverclaw : (05 April 2020 - 12:10 AM)

Dunno... Tonight one of the major networks showed a movie with plagues.. including that listening to their leader causes the first born to die. ;P So nah.. I think the Stand could work. :D

@  TM2-Megatron : (04 April 2020 - 09:18 PM)

That's probably the last thing anyone needs to see, at the moment. Maybe when we get to the end of June/beginning of July and we can venture back out, it might be possible to find some enjoyment in The Stand.

@  Maximus Ambus : (04 April 2020 - 02:08 PM)

I suppose the CBS adaptation of Stephen Kings The Stand will be delayed.

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!

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

@  PlutoniumBoss : (30 March 2020 - 05:26 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.

Eh - I suppose I'm in the minority, but I like fire-plug Gung-ho (honestly better than I ever liked shirtless GH - talk about Village Person). Everyone isn't 6'4" irl, and as for Monkeywrench: while he could have been better he didn't take much customizing to be acceptable.

I'm not saying shirtless Gung-Ho is better. My Gung-Ho custom wears a t-shirt. And I think all those shirted Gung-Hos in the new sculpt era are nice and spiffy. The T-crotch one even had sleeves!
But that Gung-Ho just looks downright wimpy. Gung-Ho's defining characteristic has been being a big mean jarhead. Some sort of living Jesse Ventura Blaine. Even the Resolute film the toy is based on portrayed him as a big guy.
Traditionally there's two heavies in the Joe team, Gung-Ho and Roadblock. Not really big on Tunnel Rat towering over GH.

As for Monkeywrench, I guess that stems more out of my dislike of Dreadnoks, especially in ROC where they just don't fit IMO.


But really the point I'm trying to make is a much-desired labcoated Mindbender is preferable to either of those options.

I used my Gung-Ho for custom fodder.

I swapped heads with him and a ROC Hawk figure, giving me a "tall" Gung-Ho and a Dial-Tone.

Yeah, but he wasn't so much a Rise of Cobra figure as a "Rise of Cobra" figure, if you get the meaning... really, in the same way he came with "Rise of Cobra" Gung-Ho.

I think Jungle Assault Duke is the one that people have said is supposed to look like Dutch. It's not really all that close though.

And of course Shadow Tracker is a bit of a nod to the Predator itself, so it's not like they were going for exact duplicates.

On the Aliens homage front, Duke comes with a Colonial Marines rifle, Iron Grenadier comes with a smartgun, and Hawk is basically a Space Marine when he's all geared up.

And while sheer coincidence, you can slap a decent Hawk or Duke head on Roadblock and get an easy John Matrix/Commando.

I'm more sick of him reviewing preproduction material as if it was the retail release piece. The Retaliation 3-packs changed considerably from preproduction to retail release. And since he reviewed a stolen copy of the Black Dragon copter, he had no review of the pilot figure included....
