i remember the missile gears malfuctioned a lot. damn thing once shot me in the middle of the night.

@  Fenix Twilight : (17 December 2017 - 06:54 PM)

Just transformed Unicron probably for the first time since I got him in 03, fun stuff. Still would like a new version but since they just did another release last year I guess we're stuck with that mold.

@  Shrug : (17 December 2017 - 06:16 PM)

Yeah, I think that might work on the red one, if I can find a neon enough yellow

How about neon yellow/green? Like on Krok?

I'm thinking of making some figures "G2" with minor paint additions: a little panel lining, probably. What colors in small amounts make you think G2?

Don't worry, it was grammatically correct, it just wasn't "fluent". :)

Scheiße.

@  SHIELD Agent 47 : (17 December 2017 - 03:22 PM)

Damn. I initially thought of writing "Herzliche Glückwünsche", but I thought that didn't fit because we don't know each other in real life. But I forgot to check for quantity after dropping "Herzliche".

@  TM2-Megatron : (17 December 2017 - 03:14 PM)

It'll be nice when they finally perfect universal translation algorithms

@  Nevermore : (17 December 2017 - 02:43 PM)

In German, you only pluralize "Glückwunsch" when it's several people congratulating someone. As in, "I received everyone's congratulations."

@  Nevermore : (17 December 2017 - 02:42 PM)

That's actually a hypercorrect literal translation that immediately reveals you as a non-native speaker.

@  SHIELD Agent 47 : (17 December 2017 - 01:04 PM)

Glückwünsche!

And top top it all off, my employer will offer a one-off bonus for moving to permanent late shift, and another annual bonus if I stay on permanent late shift for an entire year.

That's basically my personal dream shift.

@  TM2-Megatron : (17 December 2017 - 02:18 AM)

TBH, the use of the word "boudoir" seemed a bit more out of place to me than the humour... has a non-English Terran language ever been established as existing in Star Wars before?

@  PlutoniumBoss : (17 December 2017 - 01:28 AM)

It's not like it's a big deal anyway. I mean, anything with Aurebesh in it is demonstrably non-canon, because there's no X in Aurebesh so X-Wings wouldn't be called X-Wings, right?

@  unitremover : (16 December 2017 - 11:47 PM)

Yeah, TLJ felt a lot more mindful about when it broke out the quips/jokes than I think the Marvel movie comparison implies

@  2017 : (16 December 2017 - 09:35 PM)

I'm fine with the humour because the rest of the universe feels legit, and it's not ten quips a minute like those bloody Marvel movies.

Less than 3 hours to go, now

@  TM2-Megatron : (16 December 2017 - 08:11 PM)

Also, it can't be worse than those awful "sarcastic" jokes in the beginning of AotC that were meant to establish a camaraderie between Anakin and Obi-Wan where it was clear that none existed.

@  TM2-Megatron : (16 December 2017 - 08:09 PM)

Doesn't sound like something I'll be bothered by; movies have to change at least a little bit with the times

@  Waspinator : (16 December 2017 - 07:59 PM)

Yeah, there was some sarcastic humor that wasn't really present in the classic movies

@  Steevy Maximus : (16 December 2017 - 02:00 PM)

I didn't have a problem with it. But it DOES skew a bit more "modern" in ways the humor of prior films didn't, short maybe Rogue One

@  TM2-Megatron : (16 December 2017 - 01:20 PM)

I'm staying spoiler-free until I see it tonight, but a number of people seem really angry at the humour in the film

@  TM2-Megatron : (16 December 2017 - 01:19 PM)

I've already noticed some backlash against it over on blu-ray.com, but a lot of it seems to stem from anger about the Disney/Fox deal

Just to make sure: Trivia notes regarding specific toys on a character's page (or the character's toy page) such as design changes, foreign variants that still technically qualify as the "same" release, errors on the packaging etc. belong in the specific toy's writeup (provided it's not already overtly long) rather than down in the "notes" section, yes?
"'[Foreigners] at least need to be able to speak proper German.' Okay, what the hell is that supposed to be? Proper German'? Where do they speak that? Have you ever been there? Are you German?

For those of you who have PCCs and still have the packaging, could you take a look at the mini-cons depicted in the photos?

The Wiki reflects that Steelshot's mini-con was in completely different colors from what was pictured.

Thing is, after picking up Icepick on Black Friday and Windburn on Cyber Monday, I've noted that their mini-cons are also different colors on the packaging: Icepick's package shows his mini-con as being a purple when he's really blue, and Windburn's package shows his mini-con as being yellow when he's really green.

I'll likely run those updates with the next back of pages I create (I've got a little bit of seasonal merch to input when I find the time; I have a research paper I need to do), but since I only have a handful of dudes (Searchlight, Sledge, Steelshot, Windburn, Grimstone, and Steamhammer), I don't have a lot of package artwork to reference.

Thanks.

Ditto. Sometimes I get through fine, but it mostly lags. It's causing problems when two people edit the same page at once; the latest edit overwrites the earlier without warning.

Yes, its been PAINFULLY slow over the last week or so. It's especially killing me when I want to make multiple, rapid-fire edits like the Energon pages I'm working on, but instead it's taking several minutes at a time to update a single page.

Originally, the Wikia version was the only one, and all the people currently at TFWiki were there instead. Then this jive happened, and we got sick of it and decided to leave, exporting all the content and setting it up at TFWiki.

A few people have kept stubbornly updating at the old location anyway because they're silly, but they can't keep up at all--you'll notice that while they're nearly identical at a glance, closer inspection will reveal that TFWiki's coverage of nearly everything is superior, especially things that are more recent (for instance, Wikia has no page at all for either of the last two BotCons).

tl;dr TFWiki.net is the real wiki, the other one is leftovers.
