Both maybe?

@  Benbot : (20 July 2019 - 04:44 PM)

Do you need a criminal lawyer or a criminal, lawyer.

@  Tm_Silverclaw : (20 July 2019 - 10:40 AM)

I don't suppose the allspark has any criminal lawyers from Georgia. ;P

@  NotVeryKnightly : (19 July 2019 - 01:17 PM)

It seems like, with these kind of things, anything not TF-specific is either in an existing thread or just not discussed since they're not part of something deemed important enough to get its own thread already.

@  Benbot : (19 July 2019 - 12:45 PM)

Yeah, but it's for Transformers specifically

@  Gryllid : (19 July 2019 - 12:39 PM)

There is. It's called "SDCC 2019 thread"

@  Benbot : (19 July 2019 - 12:24 PM)

no general SDCC thread?

@  Benbot : (19 July 2019 - 12:08 PM)

I never even bothered to see it.

@  Tm_Silverclaw : (19 July 2019 - 10:30 AM)

O never hated it, the whole thing was an Indiana Jones movie. I didn't care for the CGI, but that's just nature of the beast.

@  Telly : (18 July 2019 - 09:18 PM)

after 38 years and i dont know how many viewings, today is the first time i noticed indiana jones doesnt use a revolver in the bar fight in raiders...

@  Kalidor : (18 July 2019 - 05:33 PM)

@Sabrblade Depends on when you're here. I used to have the backups happen once daily, now I have them happen once per hour so you might often see a hesitation at the top of every hour for 30-45 seconds.

@  TriBlurr : (16 July 2019 - 05:26 PM)

We have a cornfield? Can I get a few ears?

@  Kalidor : (16 July 2019 - 12:56 PM)

And lastly, if it becomes too much hassle to deal with - it might just get sent into the cornfield and replaced with a Discord box anyway. So cool it.

@  Kalidor : (16 July 2019 - 12:55 PM)

Second thing is we do actually have the ability to ban users specifically from using Shoutbox if it's being abused like that

@  Kalidor : (16 July 2019 - 12:55 PM)

Hey all - just a reminder and heads up. The Shoutbox has been kept here as a courtesy because it's what you folks like in lieu of Discord - but a few things to remember is that P&R should stay in P&R and isn't really something that needs to be dragged out here in the most public of spaces.

@  Nevermore : (16 July 2019 - 11:04 AM)

Done.

@  NotVeryKnightly : (16 July 2019 - 10:25 AM)

You can make a new one. I doubt anybody would stop you.

@  Nevermore : (16 July 2019 - 10:16 AM)

There was a thread but it appears to have disappeared. Might have been lost in one of the older forum sweeps.

@  NotVeryKnightly : (16 July 2019 - 09:58 AM)

Yeah this is pretty much circumventing the fact that we have different rules for political talk.

@  fourteenwings : (16 July 2019 - 09:55 AM)

Okay, so, basically, can we not do politics in here anymore? I mean, considering how often @Nevermore, you talk about your work conditions, don't you think it's time for a dedicated thread in P&R?

@  unluckiness : (16 July 2019 - 09:39 AM)

Scratch that; that's insulting to honest salads. Whatever that was was the text equivalent of hamburger.

@  unluckiness : (16 July 2019 - 09:38 AM)

Would you like some dressing to go with your word salad?

@  Paladin : (16 July 2019 - 09:34 AM)

yes; it now goes "shit piss hug *BLEEP* ^$@^ motherhuger **** turd fart encyclopedia & Socialism."

Debating between keeping that Tomahawk head and doing the following mods, or getting a Con Voltar cast....


And I managed to score some nice Joe-scale vehicles from the thrift store for $5.
Gonna have to try my hand at this "vehicle customizing" thing.

The Tomahawk head is definitely more in line with the original, at least. The scar goes from left to right, by the way.

I'm kind of curious what it'd look like on the Resolute Destro body, since that one's taller than most others and has the swappable cyber arm.

I know about the scar, this was just done on the quick in MS Paint.

Anyone playing the new GI Joe Battlegrounds? Similar but different than the Transformers game by the same folks. The artwork similarly is an odd combination of new and borrowed stuff. Some are old card-back illustrations while others are more modern updates.

From the images I've seen, they're taking elements and designs from everything, be it ARAH, Sigma Six, newsculpt era, ROC...

Don't have any mobile devices so I can't really play it, though.

Yep, that's exactly it. I had to laugh when I got a Sigma 6 Firelfy. I'm sure they're saving the classic ARAH one for a rarer card.

[note: long]

I got to thinking about something.

With minimal tinkering (if any), Hasbro could hypothetically get a full year's worth of product (if not more) largely by recycling what molds they have (or, at least, what molds they're strongly rumored to have), especially if they're willing to consider international figures & vehicles as part of the mix.

The question is, would people pay to have any of them?

Here's what I've come up with:


Vehicles & Playsets

G. I. Joe Headquarters (TRU exclusive?) (1983 mold)
*Hawk (1986-style figure, 1997 TRU colors)
*Rock & Roll (Repeater body, 1982-style head)

G. I. Joe Global Command (_____ exclusive) (Cobra Listening Post)
*Joseph Colton (convention figure w/ unused concept color scheme)
*Jane Colton (Agent Helix body with new head)

Python Stun
*Python Motor-Viper (RoC Nitro Viper)

Python Asp
*Python Lamprey

Tiger Cat (Snow Cat)
*Tiger Force Frostbite

Tiger Shark (Water Moccasin)
*Tiger Force Torpedo (prototype TF Torpedo colors)

Tiger Sting (VAMP)
*Tiger Force Bazooka

Sky Patrol Sky Hawk (Ghost Hawk mold)
*Airwave (RoC Nitro Viper w/ new head)

Sky Patrol Raven (Night Raven mold)
*Drop Zone (Strato-Viper w/ new head)

Sky Patrol Sky SHARC (SHARC mold)
*Altimeter [re: SP Airborne] (Lift-Ticket mold w/ new head)

Night Shade (SHARC mold)
*Night Force Crazylegs

Night Ray (TRU Exclusive?) (Moray Hydrofoil mold)
*Night Force Beach-Head

Armadillo (online exclusive?) (Slaughter's Marauders colors)
*Slaughter's Marauders Footloose

Tiger Paw (online exclusive?) (Cobra Ferret)
*Tiger Force Dusty

Tiger Fly (Dragonfly)
*Tiger Force Recondo

Figures

*Battle Corps Rangers Flint (new head on the Lamprey body)

*Battle Corps Dr. Mindbender (Dr. Mindbender head on the Viper body)

*Battle Corps Leatherneck (Leatherneck head and arms on the 1987-style Falcon body)

*1990 Dusty (1985-style Flint body + 1987-style Falcon head)

*Red Ninja (Dice repaint)

*Star Brigade Techno-Viper

*Super Sonic Fighters Falcon (1987-style Falcon body)

*Sonic Fighters Dial-Tone

*Sonic Fighters Law & Order

*Sonic Fighters Tunnel Rat

*Sonic Fighters Viper

*Sonic Fighters Lamprey

*Super Sonic Fighters Road Pig

*Python Patrol SAW Viper

*Python Patrol Rock Viper

*Tiger Force Outback

*Tiger Force Roadblock

*Tiger Force Wreckage

*Tiger Force Jinx

*Tiger Force Dial-Tone

*Tiger Force Psyche-Out

*Tiger Force Hit & Run

*Tiger Force Lifeline

*Tiger Force Ripcord

*Tiger Force Tripwire

*Tiger Force Skystriker

*Tiger Force Airtight

*Tiger Force Shipwreck

*Tiger Force Alpine

*Tiger Force Big Brawler

*Gatilho

*Relampago

Yeah, I think I picked up my Bradley and Abrams on clearance 4 years ago. They're nice because they scale better than official vics like the MOBAT, and the degree of realism is pretty neat, too. Plus, it's nice to have more than just one guy riding in a large vic like a tank.

You can also store Joes in the back of the Bradley.

Thanks for pointing it out. I had completely forgotten that I owned those. Gonna have to dig them out of storage in the coming months.

The Club has either done or is doing these.

On top of that, several of the remaining characters have seen their regular versions done by the Club (Dial-Tone, Footloose, SAW-Viper, probably more but I'm tired). I think it would piss a lot of people off to see the regular versions as expensive, limited exclusives while retail gets the repaints.

I've always resisted those FoV vehicles because once you go true 1:18, everything Joe looks ridiculously puny - even more so with aircraft.

I'd love to have some of that stuff but, outside of not having the room for it, I just feel like it would lessen the Joe display.
