@  NotVeryKnightly : (20 January 2018 - 02:20 AM)

You just did.

@  Tm_Silverclaw : (20 January 2018 - 02:18 AM)

Can I just say that right now... I hate the USA?

@  NotVeryKnightly : (20 January 2018 - 01:34 AM)

There are languages where the days are named for numbers and Sunday is "one". Like Arabic.

@  Pennpenn : (20 January 2018 - 01:31 AM)

Isn't it sort of a religious thing for Sunday to be the start of the week but most people just go with the first day they go to work for the week?

@  unitremover : (20 January 2018 - 01:02 AM)

I feel like I've known plenty of Americans who'd say Monday is the first day of the week.

@  Pennpenn : (20 January 2018 - 12:57 AM)

Personally Monday will always be the first day of the week for me. The notion that Sunday is somehow the first day of the week seems completely nonsensical to me.

@  Pennpenn : (20 January 2018 - 12:57 AM)

I'm fairly sure it is in Australia, but that tends to get blurred because of US influence.

@  SHIELD Agent 47 : (20 January 2018 - 12:19 AM)

(It's Sunday here in the U.S.)

@  SHIELD Agent 47 : (20 January 2018 - 12:18 AM)

Anyone here live in a country where Monday is considered the first day of the week?

@  Tm_Silverclaw : (19 January 2018 - 08:40 PM)

Maybe?

@  Patchouli Kn... : (19 January 2018 - 08:38 PM)

@  BlackMax : (19 January 2018 - 08:38 PM)

@  BlackMax : (19 January 2018 - 05:56 PM)

Who sings the first part of the GIJoe The Movie theme song? (Cobra) Sounds so familiar.

@  SHIELD Agent 47 : (17 January 2018 - 10:46 PM)

Also true.

@  Tm_Silverclaw : (17 January 2018 - 10:40 PM)

I hate brick and mortar stores around here.

@  SHIELD Agent 47 : (17 January 2018 - 10:38 PM)

But I like the feel of the brick and mortar search a bit more. And I can see inside packages at brick and mortar. True, Amazon has a good return policy, but I like buying once and settling.

@  SHIELD Agent 47 : (17 January 2018 - 10:37 PM)

I suppose I could save more if I bought more often from Amazon.

@  wonko the sane? : (17 January 2018 - 10:36 PM)

Closest I got to "free" was 30% off warpath, which just about lined him up to the canadian price had he ever shown up around me. The pile of loot saved me a pile, but it was still pricy.

@  Shrug : (17 January 2018 - 09:34 PM)

Yeah, I purposefully waited on them because I knew they'd be perfect "add onto orders to get free shipping" fodder. Already gotten two that way. Technically "free" and I barely had to wait.

@  SHIELD Agent 47 : (17 January 2018 - 09:21 PM)

That's how I feel about Prime Masters. Getting back into collecting last year taught me to be patient, which grants rewards most of the time.

@  Shrug : (17 January 2018 - 09:18 PM)

I want Starscream so hard after seeing him in person, but since he's the one being left behind by every other collector in my area, I feel like I can wait for a sale.

@  wonko the sane? : (17 January 2018 - 09:09 PM)

I mean: I maybe woulda jumped on starscream if I found a sale or something, but it wasn't a priority.

@  wonko the sane? : (17 January 2018 - 09:08 PM)

I only wanted the dinobots (cause... volcanicus.) but got saddled with three I didn't want due to the bundling. I'd still be waiting to order if I had waited on individual figures.

@  Tm_Silverclaw : (17 January 2018 - 08:27 PM)

Ahh.. I just ordered the whole case cause I wanted too. :)

@  wonko the sane? : (17 January 2018 - 06:49 PM)

Mostly PotP dinobots. Plus some stuff I couldn't opt out of to get those dinobots. And CW warpath... cause he was on sale.

@  Tm_Silverclaw : (17 January 2018 - 04:54 PM)

What ya getting?

@  wonko the sane? : (17 January 2018 - 04:38 PM)

Yay! My package from BBTS is in canada! I might even get it this week!

@  Benbot : (17 January 2018 - 02:04 PM)

I need a laptop more than a new desktop

@  Tm_Silverclaw : (17 January 2018 - 01:18 PM)

Buying a pre-built computer you should be okay.. It's just the individual parts that jumped huge in price.

@  Paladin : (17 January 2018 - 01:14 PM)

well all the idiots who invested in "bitcoin" will be selling theirs en masse to make ends meet so you might be able to find something cheap if you watch auctions.

@  Benbot : (17 January 2018 - 12:59 PM)

Is now a good time to buy a computer? Or should I wait?

@  Tm_Silverclaw : (17 January 2018 - 12:01 PM)

I pointed out that I'm on disabilty.. I don't have to pretend to be an adult anymore. ;D

@  MEDdMI : (17 January 2018 - 11:25 AM)

Also Bayonetta 3.

@  TheMightyMol... : (17 January 2018 - 10:55 AM)

Nintendo also announced Dark Souls for the Switch, so those people should shut up.

@  Tm_Silverclaw : (17 January 2018 - 10:51 AM)

Apparently people are freaking out that Nintendo announced something for kids and kids at heart. And people are absolutely freaking out about it.

@  TheMightyMol... : (17 January 2018 - 10:23 AM)

So the Smitty's were coming out of Wal-Mart last night when all of the sudden this black Camaro stops a few feet short of hitting my wife and son. My son pointed at the can and said "Bumblebee!"

Did you lose both your hands/arms in a combine harvester accident that you are now unable to point?

They need to make some TFs with a destoner or a tomato harvester or even a bale wrapper alt-mode.

I don't think there's a single true TFs fan who wouldn't buy a Leader Class TFs bale wrapper.

I think we should rename this thread to "Transformers: TNG" because Smitty's inspired me to tell a cool story about my son.

I've pretty much always had some version of Transformers on the TV since my son was born (he's 3.5 now), and while I know he picks up alot (he knows most of the G1-BW show guys and the live action movies, and can delineate between different lines, i.e. the difference between movie and prime prime), I didn't know just how much until this past weekend. He's seen the '86 movie countless times and has always loved Hot Rod, so I thought it would be extra special that when MP Rodimus came out this year I put one away for him for Christmas (which helps me twofold in getting really good at his transformation, but I digress).

He loves having his own of course after oogling my 2 for the last few months. He loves that he can change from Hot Rod to Rodimus Prime. When the Hub starting showing season 3 he was particularly excited because it has all his buddies from the animated movie. Last weekend we were watching FFoD part 3, in particular the scene where Rodimus short-circuits himself and travels into the Matrix. My son (his name is RC or Ryan Christopher Junior) says "Dada, there's Hot Rod!" I didn't really look up from what I was doing, but knowing the ep I said "No, that's Rodimus Prime." He says, "NO Dada, that's Hot Rod!" I look up and sure enough, he caught an animation mistake, where they drew Rodimus with Hot Rod's facial lines. "You're right!" I said. "Good boy!" I was totally dumbfounded with this, as even when I was watching G1 as an 8-year-old I never picked up on that slight difference between the characters (I had always just assumed Hot Rod was shorter and pinker, mostly based on my memory of him reverting in Dark Awakening).

I really think I'm creating a monster! Whenever we get into the car all he wants to listen to is Unicron's theme.
What are everyone else's stories of Transformers: The Next Generation?

I think he brought it up on the topic of unconventional vehicles.

A hearse Transformer could be a Decepticon named Deadbolt. And has a stasis pod in the back.

That's because we drive them to Air Cargo. Airports don't seem to be in favor of us picking up human remains from the baggage claim.
