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.

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.

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."

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"
