Thor was a great guy. Same as most of the Asgard. Loki was a jerk, though.

@  wonko the sane? : (26 May 2017 - 07:21 PM)

I think thor was just too smart to NOT call us stupid next to him.

@  Pennpenn : (26 May 2017 - 07:18 PM)

Six of one, half a dozen of the other?

@  wonko the sane? : (26 May 2017 - 07:17 PM)

I always interpreted that scene to mean that asgardians weren't capable of breaking down problems in the same way as humans.

@  Pennpenn : (26 May 2017 - 06:58 AM)

I mean, SG1 was a good show on balance. One of my favourite things was Thor admitting he found humans good to keep around because they so often came up with stupid ideas that nevertheless worked out.

@  Whirl Maximus : (26 May 2017 - 05:59 AM)

Those episodes were 1969 and 2010.

@  Whirl Maximus : (26 May 2017 - 05:59 AM)

Stargate sg1 was loosely based on the movie, it thrived on continuity it was impressive how old situations and solutions would come back in unexpected ways. Continuum had it's villain use the characters own solution in two previous episodes against them.

@  Pennpenn : (26 May 2017 - 05:39 AM)

And yeah, name is based on a part of my surname. Can't remember why I picked it. Lost to memories of the primordial early 2000s.

@  Pennpenn : (26 May 2017 - 05:37 AM)

Like how Abydos in the movie is in another galaxy on the far side of the universe, but Abydos in SG1 is the closest world to Earth (and that was the only reason the gate could still get there) and even getting to other galaxies was impossible with the normal gates.

@  Pennpenn : (26 May 2017 - 05:35 AM)

I was very tired when I said that, but what I meant was a lot of stuff that is in the original Stargate movie is contradicted a lot in Stargate SG1.

OBJECTION

@  Tm_Silverclaw : (26 May 2017 - 12:48 AM)

I remember a fanfic that had Swindle as Lawyer.

@  SHIELD Agent 47 : (25 May 2017 - 10:08 PM)

No, I am referring to before Beast Wars: Uprising. I swear Swindle was a lawyer in a story before "A Brush With Infamy".

@  Telly : (25 May 2017 - 09:47 PM)

i cant get the link to work for the life of me. just go to the wiki and type "a brush with infamy" in the search box and itll come up

@  Telly : (25 May 2017 - 09:40 PM)

grr. check the post above this one. stupid non working link and i cant delete shouts...

@  SHIELD Agent 47 : (25 May 2017 - 09:25 PM)

I swear I've read the story but now I forget which one it is.

@  SHIELD Agent 47 : (25 May 2017 - 09:25 PM)

When has G1 Swindle been a lawyer before?

@  Rycochet : (25 May 2017 - 07:20 PM)

All I know about PennPenn is he's so good they named him twice.

@  Tm_Silverclaw : (25 May 2017 - 07:02 PM)

Nope.. Pennpenn is actually a Prinny dood!

@  Foffy : (25 May 2017 - 06:47 PM)

I wonder if Pennpenn is related to Sean Penn.

@  Kalidor : (25 May 2017 - 04:31 PM)

PennPenn - What are you talking about?

@  wonko the sane? : (25 May 2017 - 02:13 PM)

The prequel-creep from the original Stargate movie to SG1 is kinda funny.

True.

@  unluckiness : (25 May 2017 - 06:45 AM)

I thought that was the status updates?

@  ▲ndrusi : (24 May 2017 - 09:18 PM)

I might buy some bot shots for walmarts prices. At least for my kid, or maybe just the core characters. They look tiny enough to still fit on my crowded displays.

I don't remember Battle Beasts being that small. Of course, I was much smaller then.

Does RID Cliffjumper's cart art emphasize wrist blasters that only the FE mold actually had? Ouch.

Swing and a miss for me today, only saw a pile of RiD Bumblebee.

Are all the Botshots translucent? Or are there chase figures? Or is just sentinel translucent?

It looks like only some of them are translucent. I hadn't realized Sentinel would be one of them until I saw this thread.

Sentinel is the wave 1 "superbot". He's transparent and I think he has more oomph in the power numbers.

I'm curious as to why it mentions Hasbro Canada on the back. Is that normal for TF products bought in the US?

Also this appears to be an official site of some sort but I have no code, so I don't know what it does.

the file is named char_Prime_and_Bumblebee_2.png . Maybe it's Nemesis vs. Cliffjumper (though I think it looks the most like the Kre-O Sentinel)

Adam is a Knower-Of-Things, plus I don't think he'd tease us like that.

I do hope they inundate us with the little buggers.

I just want to see one standing next to a Battle Beast or Mini-Con. If they're BB sized, I'm gonna get the lot of 'em. Smaller... then at least a few.

Saw the first wave of Bot Shots (I always read that as Butt Shots) at TRU. The only one I didn't grab was Sentinel Prime as I didn't like the fact that he was all translucent with just his face and eyes painted. The others were hard to resist, but I feel they are a dollar too expensive at $5.

Yeah, I'd have a hard time resisting them at $3.49 - 3.99 somehow it feels easier at $4.99-$5.99.
