@  -LittleAutob... : (30 June 2020 - 05:55 PM)

x-x when in vehicle mode we can travel much F A R T H E R-

@  wonko the sane? : (30 June 2020 - 05:52 PM)

Because despite the fact that we can travel around the world in the time it takes to get a good nights sleep and a couple of meals: people rarely wander more than 25 miles away from home for the duration of their lives.

@  Otaku : (30 June 2020 - 05:49 PM)

I don't know how many days that trip takes - especially while sightseeing - but explaining they're 3936 kilometers (2445 miles) apart gives an idea, paradoxically because it is too large to easily picture.

@  Otaku : (30 June 2020 - 05:44 PM)

Aye.  When I catch lay people discussing miles and not how long the trip takes, it is in an attempt to stress how far away something is... like NYC to LA.

@  ▲ndrusi : (30 June 2020 - 01:20 PM)

But I can imagine 45 *minutes* easily.

@  ▲ndrusi : (30 June 2020 - 01:20 PM)

I can imagine a mile, it's a distance I've run. I can't really imagine 45 miles.

@  ▲ndrusi : (30 June 2020 - 01:19 PM)

I think there's also an element of the thing where things that are much bigger than us all blur together.

@  Otaku : (30 June 2020 - 11:49 AM)

If you're not, then you're more concerned with how long it takes.  Actual distance doesn't tell you that very well.  Besides traffic and road conditions, you'll need to know what kind of driving (city/interstate/rural/etc.).

@  Otaku : (30 June 2020 - 11:47 AM)

Distance matters if you're being paid by the mile.

@  TM2-Megatron : (30 June 2020 - 11:44 AM)

Canadians are the same way, for the most part. If you're driving somewhere far, especially, it helps you plan out the day more than a distance in KM would.

@  Otaku : (30 June 2020 - 11:42 AM)

We use the time it takes to get someplace because that is what is relevant to us.

@  TheMightyMol... : (30 June 2020 - 10:55 AM)

Because even we can't figure out miles half the time.

@  Paladin : (30 June 2020 - 09:54 AM)

it's a big country with a lot of empty space. between our citizens' ears.

@  Bass X0 : (30 June 2020 - 09:52 AM)

Why do most Americans measure distance by hours of driving?

@  TM2-Megatron : (29 June 2020 - 07:26 PM)

And as a result the world's lone blu-ray release of the film, an Australian disc that came out 7 years ago, now goes for hundreds of dollars on eBay. Thanks Disney.

@  TM2-Megatron : (29 June 2020 - 06:21 PM)

Well, they censored Daryl Hannah's butt in Splash :rolleyes

@  Paladin : (29 June 2020 - 05:43 PM)

I don't want to be reissued. This body sucks, I wanna be updated.

@  Nevermore : (29 June 2020 - 09:43 AM)

I definitely don't intend to be reissued. Nobody would buy me.

@  Bass X0 : (29 June 2020 - 08:31 AM)

will anybody else attempt to be reissued?

@  wonko the sane? : (29 June 2020 - 07:51 AM)

*Gasp* Decepticons re-writing history to serve their own needs?!?!

@  Nevermore : (29 June 2020 - 05:48 AM)

The whole point of the DJD is that they're fanatical Megatron fanboys (especially Tarn) to the point of having their own headcanon taking priority of the actual canon, simply speaking.

@  TheMightyMol... : (29 June 2020 - 04:01 AM)

They didn't know the war was over until later. And then they denied it anyway.

@  PlutoniumBoss : (28 June 2020 - 10:47 PM)

"He's comin' right for us!"

@  Telly : (28 June 2020 - 08:40 PM)

was that even still in effect once the war ended?

@  TheMightyMol... : (28 June 2020 - 06:51 PM)

According to Roberts, soldiers can ignore the order to spare Whirl if he's directly threatening them. But mostly the DJD were out of their heads on Nuke and not really caring much at the time.

@  Xaaron : (28 June 2020 - 06:41 PM)

Also, they were hopped up on goofballs at the time.

@  wonko the sane? : (28 June 2020 - 06:06 PM)

Cause it was whirl. He opened his (non-existant.) gob at the just the right time to piss somebody off. Or, so I assume.

@  Maximus Ambus : (28 June 2020 - 06:00 PM)

If Whirl was off limits why did the DJD kill him?

@  TM2-Megatron : (27 June 2020 - 05:57 PM)

That sounds about right. I actually didn't get into it until the IQ expansion came out (which saved me a bit of expense)

@  Otaku : (27 June 2020 - 05:55 PM)

Weird question (and sorry for so many shouts): did Overpower really release in August of '95?  I could have sworn I attempted to play it with a classmate who shouldn't have been a classmate by that point.

@  Otaku : (27 June 2020 - 05:52 PM)

So... I don't have all my cards still somewhere. XP I still play Pokémon via the PTCGO, and I've been doing Card of the Days over on Pojo (on and off) since 2013.

@  Otaku : (27 June 2020 - 05:51 PM)

For both financial, personal, and practical reasons, all my collectibles had to go about 10 years ago: action figures, comic books, card games, RPG books, video games.

So I'm seeing lots of Gridman and SSSS Gridman model kits from Bandai, Megahouse, and Good Smile. What're the chances there'll be an SHFiguarts of either iteration?  I've been collecting a lot of the Kamen Rider and Ultra series figures and to have Serv--Gridman in that style would be awesome.

There's an old Ultra-Act Gridman figure Bandai did a few years ago, but it's notorious for having fragile wrists.

They've been making Ultraman Figuarts for a few years now but

a) I don't have firsthand experience with those so I don't know how they compare to Ultra-Act

b) That line's been pretty slow to get to Heisei characters so I don't know the odds of a Gridman any time soon. I think there's only X and Zero for Heisei Tsuburaya characters so far.

c) wait did they choose to only make heisei ultras with megaman-sounding names

Speaking of insane...

So this is a thing:

IMG_6691.jpg

 

It's from a line by Bandai called Neko Busou (ねこぶそう), which is clearly Japanese for "Murder Cats."

(actually, it's Cat Armament - but Murder Cats sounds way more fun).

 

The Dianaut and chair are from Diaclone Reboot, of course.  I also painted it up a bit since everything being olive drab was a bit... drab.  

Holy carp,I don't even like cats, but this things just speaks to me in some weird Japanese acid-trippy sort of way.

 

Like this is the most epic death machine in my entire Diaclone arsenal now.  And since the pegs sizes are the same, I can cross-contaminate all I want.

 

I've got the standard four releases coming this week.
https://www.amazon.co.jp/バンダイ-BANDAI-ねこぶそう-色分け済みプラモデル/dp/B07CMPM3T1/ref=pd_ybh_a_7?_encoding=UTF8&psc=1&refRID=AS0WHNCX1XJMGAFY0ZQX

 

And in November, there's a Mad-Max style kitty-scooter o' death coming out:

https://www.amazon.co.jp/BANDAI-SPIRITS-バンダイ-スピリッツ-色分け済みプラモデル/dp/B07FT9Q642/ref=pd_ybh_a_3?_encoding=UTF8&psc=1&refRID=XTE3HFCM3DVD0GMEHA80

 

Gods help me if Bandai start doing Shiba Inu in the same format.  I will be so broke.
 

EDIT:  Reconfigured it to look a little better.  That weird stock "claw-thingy" configuration was poop.

The exorbitant price tag aside, I really enjoy having him.  He's a massive beast of a toy all built up.  Quite solid for a model kit, owing to the pure ABS construction, and large, monolithic chunks of plastic.

And he's kinda in-scale to the GGG bots from the rest of the line, which is one of the IWANTS reason.

Hell, I paid for GekiRyuJin and the SymDocker space boosters. May as well!

It's a bit concerning how DA seems to have quickly fallen back on making characters from other licenses rather than continuing with their original designs.

 

It doesn't help that most of said licensed characters have been getting the better engineering. :doh

MP Eva arrived. This is the first NXEDGE in a few months and whilst it's another Eva it's nice that it's not a simply a rehash of the lead three, who have had their Rebuild and TV designs by this point. The figure itself is a shared exclusive between Bandai webshop and the official Eva store. The wing unit is pretty impressive and they included neck rotation so you can get it into feral poses. That had been one of my big complaints with these as Eva toys. You can pull off the pseudo-tokusatsu poses but the more feral, primal stuff didn't really work (made worse by competing SD Evas pulling this off) so them realising that here is great. 

 

You get another appearance of the Lance (this time in navy/purple) and the double edged sword. This is designed so the handle pops off and slides into the hand before attaching back on. Another thing that shows they've learned as getting the Evas more complicated weapons into their hands as is on this line is a chore.

 

From here on out it looks like the line is dedicating itself to Mashin Hero Wataru for now. It's also up in the air if I'll be able to get imported toys post-March but nice to see they're improving in the right direction.
