I understand using Eva to fight monsters, but where does Bob come into it?

@  PlutoniumBoss : (21 January 2017 - 01:29 AM)

Of course we'll need Bob EVAs to fight all these critters...

Or Otachipotle.

Sorry Waspinator, but Sean Bean already reserved that one.

Fair enough, sorry. Although, I think as more people get upset you're going to see it leaking out more.

Can the politics stay in P&R? I don't really need an emetic that badly.

@  Pennpenn : (20 January 2017 - 05:37 PM)

All of Trump's base are stone cold morons, so there's that. Then again, a lot of people would argue that America has nevr been "great", or even when it is there's plenty to bring down it's score.

@  Vexwing : (20 January 2017 - 04:18 PM)

A lot of Trump's base would probably claim it stopped being great 8 years ago.

@  Locoman : (20 January 2017 - 03:44 PM)

And today is National Cheese Lover's Day, apparently, so perhaps we should make America grate again while we're at it

@  Bass X0 : (20 January 2017 - 03:43 PM)

How long has it not been great for?

@  Nevermore : (20 January 2017 - 02:34 PM)

Finally, America is great again.

@  Benbot : (20 January 2017 - 09:44 AM)

Nevermind that. Today is a day to celebrate, because season 2 of Voltron is up on Netflix!

@  ShadowMan024 : (19 January 2017 - 06:51 PM)

Past 8 years? Try "past 241."

@  Xellos : (19 January 2017 - 06:44 PM)

So basically the same as the past 8 years. Guess that works too.

@  TheMightyMol... : (19 January 2017 - 06:25 PM)

We as a nation either drank too much or not enough. It's difficult to say, really.

@  PlutoniumBoss : (19 January 2017 - 06:10 PM)

Isn't America being crazy drunk how we got in this situation in the first place?

@  BlackMax : (19 January 2017 - 04:18 PM)

I plan on being very American about every single injustice our new leader perpetrates ("American" of course meaning "annoyed and loud").

@  TheMightyMol... : (19 January 2017 - 02:38 PM)

I plan to just stick my fingers in my ears and pretend I don't hear anything.

@  Bass X0 : (19 January 2017 - 02:26 PM)

I recommend America just get crazy drunk for the next four years. It's the only way you're going to get through them.

No way, man, I have standards.

@  RichardT1977 : (18 January 2017 - 04:12 PM)

Or do a crossover where you team up with McDonaldzilla.

@  TheMightyMol... : (18 January 2017 - 04:10 PM)

Take off and nuke the site from orbit. It's the only way to be sure.

@  BlackMax : (18 January 2017 - 04:10 PM)

That's why we're going to bomb the Breach.

@  Locoman : (18 January 2017 - 03:58 PM)

In the beginning new Subways were only built every twelve months. Then six, then three. Then every two weeks. In four days we could be seeing a new Subway every eight hours until they are coming every four minutes.

@  TheMightyMol... : (18 January 2017 - 03:44 PM)

One bite is all it takes.

@  Locoman : (18 January 2017 - 03:44 PM)

I'm a little worried by how many Subways there are in my vincinity. Like, there are two within walking distance of my house, and I pass about four of them on my way to work

@  TheMightyMol... : (18 January 2017 - 03:41 PM)

I'd almost rather eat the corpse, but then again, it's probably been eating Subway too, with my luck.

@  wonko the sane? : (18 January 2017 - 02:33 PM)

I've found that subway's food tends to be...

@  Benbot : (18 January 2017 - 02:13 PM)

Much to my surprise, the Nato-Bot Roadbuster Upgrade parts are back on the market.

http://www.shapeways...hops/thebotshop

Unfortunately, you have to paint them yourself (and I assume that assembly will be required) and the price is a might steep, but hey, for those of us who missed out the first time, this is a good opportunity, yes?

I wonder if the end result will produce a sharper product. Cause the original is not up to par with third party standards.

Cool for those that missed it but as far as I'm concerned Universe Roadbuster isn't up to par with homage standards.

(...still want that scheme on Cyb.Def Red Alert.)

...so it could look less like a proper homage to the character?

I mean, it would look cool. I'm not disputing that. I just don't see where it gets us any closer to geewunnyness than what we currently have. icon-hotrod.gif

Do you want the list? icon-arcee.gif

Hulking Ultra body instead of a dainty deluxe.

A weapon at least as tall as he is instead of some dinky shoulder cannons and a pocketknife.

Less humanoid face.

It wouldn't be perfect no but it'd be a damn sight closer then what we have.

While the idea of Roadbuster being able to pound the THE HAMMER on enemies is nice, I don't really feel it

Sure Cyb. Def. Red Alert is big and all, but... He's really only got two weapons: His multitool, and his giant missile. Hotshot, on the other hand, is full of missiles and has a shank. I can see Roadbuster shanking some poor Decepticon

I'll give you the size.

The "weapon at least as tall as he is" is an enormous shoulder-mounted ICBM. It's not like we're talking about a kickass rifle here.

The face is arguable IMO, since it's still a face (albeit recessed into a helmet) and Roadbuster colors would actually serve to make it more apparent.

Don't get me wrong, if they made it and it looked good I'd probably boot the Universe version in a heartbeat... but I'm not seeing where it's so much better that I actively want it. Outside of the size, I'm seeing a lateral shift here.

Even just 6 months ago I'd have been delighted by this, but Renderform is planning to release a Universe Roadbuster upgrade kit including a new head, guns and chest piece, most likely for cheaper and in far better quality, so I'll be waiting for that instead.

I'm already more interested in that T B, a new Chest would go that tiny bit farther for me to not look at it and say... "oh hi pumpkin patch Hotshot."

did they ever give out the design for the new piece?

Nope, just the new head concepts.

I'm assuming he's a bit busy with the large number of orders for the Goldbug heads, convention exclusives and those clear weapons sets.
