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

Yamcha would be a better President than Trump...

Damning with faint praise there.

Don't blame me! I voted for Kodos!

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

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.

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

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

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

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)

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)

Me too!

@  Arazyr : (20 January 2017 - 10:08 AM)

My daughters and I have been looking forward to that!

@  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").

According to fiction, all jet formers can fly in bot mode. I never liked the idea of magically flying robots, but thr aerial bots kibble forms kind of jet pack.

I'm pretty sure the Aerialbots couldn't fly in robot mode, or at least were never shown to, in the cartoon. Superion could, but not the individuals.

I'm pretty sure I remember them doing so in some episodes as well...

Of course, come Season 3, it seemed like everyone could, except when they couldn't.

Everybody take an Aerialbots episode from the wiki at random and watch. First person to find them flying in bot mode when not in outer space ( I'm looking at you season 3) wins a virtual cookie.

The Dreamwave MTMTE bios for all the Aerialbots except Fireflight mentions they can fly in robot mode, which is a rare ability among Autobots. So 4 of them can fly as robots in that continuity.

The Tech Spec, MTMTE and Transformers Universe entry for Superion says he can fly at 800 MPH. So that's pretty much all G1/G2 continuities.

Some of the question probably stems from that time Silverbolt transformed to blast something in mid-air and then began falling without attempting to fly. I think he said "Goodbye cruel world!" But one could assume this was because he was so petrified of heights that he couldn't think straight.

Just watched Key to Vector Sigma.

Silverbolt definately CANNOT fly there. He falls, as said above, when he turns into robot mode and would have died if Slingshot hadn't swooped in in jet mode and caught him.


-ZacWilliam, the Cartoon always had the strongest Autobots can't fly rule anyway.

The rule wasn't that strong, ZacWilliam. It developed over time.

Anyway, I just recently re-watched the season 2 eps featuring the Aerialbots, and I don't recall them flying in their robot modes. That said, I wasn't looking for it, so I could have missed a one-off incident.

Yeah, MTMTE was really inconsistent as to whether or not the Autobots could fly.

Yeah they can't fly. The only Autobots that could fly in the G1 cartoon (consistantly) were the Dinobots (because the majority of their alt modes were so slow).

Not counting things like Sky Lynx which is obviously and exception.
