I just hate Facebook.

@  Confuzor : (26 July 2017 - 01:25 AM)

I hate when follow a link to an article from Facebook it has all this extra junk in the address box, so if I want to copy/paste to send to my friends via text, I have to go hunt down the "permalink" so it's a more manageable size

@  SHIELD Agent 47 : (24 July 2017 - 08:52 PM)

*sigh* Yup.

@  Foffy : (24 July 2017 - 06:16 PM)

That's the exact opposite of what Facebook wants to happen, though. They're hoping you get sucked in by other content and end up spending more time on Facebook and/or making an account.

@  SHIELD Agent 47 : (24 July 2017 - 04:02 PM)

I hate that these days when you use a permalink to a Facebook post, the rest of the page's material still shows up below. Like, WTF, I only want the old way of seeing the post and nothing else!

@  Benbot : (24 July 2017 - 01:34 PM)

I call bullshit on that

@  MEDdMI : (24 July 2017 - 01:08 PM)

Read the article. Apparently too many comics sets off the machines due to the glossy pages messing up the X-ray

@  Benbot : (24 July 2017 - 01:03 PM)

what possible justification could they have to ban books containing drawings?

@  MEDdMI : (24 July 2017 - 12:56 PM)

Per the article, United appears to be the only airline, but there might be others.

@  Dracula : (24 July 2017 - 12:48 PM)

@  Evac : (24 July 2017 - 12:46 PM)

No, apparently just United did.

I always took it to be a catch-all term for "person or thing of the same name" regardless of which came first.

@  PlutoniumBoss : (22 July 2017 - 10:06 PM)

So technically it could be either way and not be wrong, but it is more apt to be Kalidor's example.

one that has the same name as another; especially : one who is named after another or for whom another is named

First Edition Prime with Targetmasters
another angle

Panic not, my friends. We WILL get another crack at him... and it may even be better, since it seems to be remolded to accept 5mm posts (which lets you mount Targetmasters all over him.)

I'm pretty sure this is also our first clear pic of the targetmasters themselves (not just CGI mock-ups). They are clearly Cliffjumper, Bumblebee, and Prime's weapons.

I must own this.

Ok, I didn't have a huge desire for that Prime on his own. But if I can put one of that Minicon on each shoulder and do some color touchups I might just pretend he's PM Prime...

Sometimes toys on display at toy shows end up never being released. Just ask any collector of Bandai's SH Figuarts.

Either that or it was just a customized display piece to show off the Mini-Con gimmick, but that wouldn't really explain the additional white stripes...
Being part of any fandom is fundamentally embarassing.

The additional stripes look like stickers, to me.

We've known about this guy since before we knew the weapons were Mini-Cons:

So while the questions about the weapons have been answered, Optimus is still a bit of a mystery.

Yeah. I hope we see a US release for the Targetmasters, but I can't really picture them being released on their own, and I'd hate to see it be one of those "store exclusive bundle with a redeco of a toy you bought a year ago" kind of deals.

I wonder how the new Targetmasters will be released.

In a multi-pack?

Individually as exclusives? (seems unlikely with new molds)

Packed with other figures as a partner?

All of them packaged with that Prime (I wish).

the PCC looks like a planking robot. But the silver rifle looks like a rifle with an adjustable stock to me. It looks like a REAL WEAPON, as do all the others.

Don't worry, Hasbro made sure to cancel FE Optimus just so that can't happen.
