Yup, let's keep the politics in P&R folks, please and thank you.

@  unluckiness : (24 January 2017 - 05:38 AM)

Having a shitty person as president isn't an excuse to turn everything into a low-rent Youtube comments section.

@  Pennpenn : (24 January 2017 - 04:55 AM)

I'm tellin' ya, you'd better get used to it. People ain't gonna miss an opportunity to drag Trump like the heavy load he is just because he's president now.

@  unluckiness : (24 January 2017 - 04:47 AM)

Oh joy, even this thing's devolved into politics. What's the matter, the status update bar not enough for ya?

@  Echowarrior : (23 January 2017 - 09:41 PM)

We don't need a magic wand to make the national debt grow, thanks very much.

I'd rather have Rita or Zedd. ;)

Yamcha would be a better President than Trump...

@  TheMightyMol... : (23 January 2017 - 03:06 PM)

Damning with faint praise there.

@  Bass X0 : (23 January 2017 - 03:06 PM)

Kodos would be a better president than Trump.

@  Echowarrior : (23 January 2017 - 02:29 PM)

*whipcrack*

@  TheMightyMol... : (23 January 2017 - 02:23 PM)

Don't blame me! I voted for Kodos!

@  ▲ndrusi : (23 January 2017 - 10:01 AM)

No, all the evils people voted for in 2016 were known.

@  Rycochet : (23 January 2017 - 09:35 AM)

Didn't people have enough of voting for unknown evils in 2016? Come on, it's so last year.

@  Robowang : (23 January 2017 - 08:49 AM)

woooo Unknown Evil

@  ▲ndrusi : (23 January 2017 - 08:21 AM)

Jinbu has legs that go all the way up.

@  Rycochet : (23 January 2017 - 07:11 AM)

Unless you really like legs that go all the way up to the armpits.

@  Rycochet : (23 January 2017 - 07:11 AM)

I would say repaint Jinbu from Transformers Go, but let's not, they're just awful.

@  Pennpenn : (22 January 2017 - 07:20 AM)

He's samurai themed? Anyway, I meant "samurai themed" in the Bludgeon's Pretender shell sense.

@  NotVeryKnightly : (22 January 2017 - 07:15 AM)

Armada Starscream?

@  Pennpenn : (22 January 2017 - 07:13 AM)

Actually I'm vaguely surprized samurai themed Seekers haven't somehow congealed within the TF brand at some point.

@  Telly : (21 January 2017 - 08:26 PM)

if they dont seek pizza im out

The Big Cheese is the villain, who's lower than low. It's a rotten shame he lives in Little Tokyo.

@  PlutoniumBoss : (21 January 2017 - 12:38 PM)

For the kaiju/restaurant theme, better be the Samurai Pizza Cats instead.

@  Rycochet : (21 January 2017 - 12:28 PM)

I prefer Mighty Morphin' Meower Rangers.

@  PlutoniumBoss : (21 January 2017 - 12:07 PM)

Okay, that got too weird, let's just use the Megazordenny's instead.

@  ▲ndrusi : (21 January 2017 - 09:20 AM)

no, no, not all hope for the characters, all hope for the viewer understanding what the hell is going on.

@  Tm_Silverclaw : (21 January 2017 - 07:33 AM)

Isn't that like.. every second spent watching Eva? *hides!*

@  Telly : (21 January 2017 - 02:26 AM)

usually about halfway through, when all hope seems lost

@  Copper Bezel : (21 January 2017 - 02:01 AM)

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...

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

Or Otachipotle.

@  RichardT1977 : (20 January 2017 - 11:03 PM)

Sorry Waspinator, but Sean Bean already reserved that one.

@  Pennpenn : (20 January 2017 - 09:51 PM)

Isn't the answer "Pepperoni and Cheese"?

@  Waspinator : (20 January 2017 - 09:12 PM)

"Oh no, not again."

I summon Mothrally's to champion the cause of a new/old line of discussion!

@  Pennpenn : (20 January 2017 - 07:24 PM)

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

@  TheMightyMol... : (20 January 2017 - 06:25 PM)

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.

@  wonko the sane? : (20 January 2017 - 12:03 PM)

Yeah - unlike Starscream this seems sort of random. "Hey, everyone loved Starscream last year - who can we make this year?.... Uh... Shockwave?"

Diggin that Shockwave. Not much for vehicles in general though [lack of space], so my eye was drawn to the Ninja Battle set and the SDCC red Jinx. Although I'll be just as willing to pick up the Sigma Six-ish movie Jinx if they go and make her.

I'd rather see them use one of the designs from the DD crossovers. (Different HISS model, but one they still use, I think?)

I guess that'd be too bland though

And Shockwave does have that tenuous link to GIJOE thanks to that weird old product catalogue

Doesn't fit the character IMO. Starscream made sense; this doesn't.

I'm just impressed that these toys don't look like dull crap like the first movie's. I mean, there are other colors than black, gray, and white! Amazing!

They should have repainted Ninja Combat Cruiser as Brawn.

I dig Shockwave there but its not really him. That said, the H.I.S.S. Tank design doesn't resemble any Transformer's alternate mode, so if it had to be that particular mold to be repainted, Shockwave is as good a character as any other.

Just because you can't win doesn't mean you stop working.
