I just think a Judge going on and Jury Tampering, trying to make the Jury think a sex taffiker is innocent is sickening. *won't say why he did that as that goes in P&R*

@  Sabrblade : (20 January 2018 - 09:21 AM)

Heh, the schedules for my work weeks begin with Saturday

@  wonko the sane? : (20 January 2018 - 07:01 AM)

Thing about the US is... you can say that any time you want as much as you want. You're still going to get shot, but it might not be because you said that though.

@  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)

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)

@  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.

In 2010, Hasbro inducted humans and robots from the worlds of toys, entertainment and CYBERTRON into the inaugural class of its TRANSFORMERS Hall of Fame, honoring more than 25 years of ?robots in disguise? action. Now in its third year, Hasbro is once again turning to fans to help finalize the 2012 robot inductee class.

Hasbro?s internal panel of judges has chosen three iconic characters to induct into the TRANFORMERS Hall of Fame in 2012?Heroic AUTOBOTS JAZZ and GRIMLOCK, as well as evil DECEPTICON SHOCKWAVE. But we need your help to determine this year's fourth robot inductee!

The winning character will be announced at the TRANSFORMERS Hall of Fame ceremony on Saturday, April 28 at BOTCON, the Official TRANSFORMERS Convention in Dallas, TX.

The TRANSFORMERS Hall of Fame was created to honor those influential in building the iconic entertainment brand, as well as the actual ?ROBOTS IN DISGUISE.? The inaugural induction ceremony was held at BotCon 2010. TRANSFORMERS influentials Bob Budiansky, Peter Cullen, Hideaki Yoke, and Kohjin Ohno were members of the inaugural class, along with five notable robot characters that are a part of Transformers lore. The previous robot honorees (who are ineligible for the fan-voted slot in this year's ceremony) are:
OPTIMUS PRIME
BUMBLEBEE
MEGATRON
STARSCREAM
DINOBOT
IRONHIDE
RATCHET
SOUNDWAVE
WASPINATOR


First round nominees are due by March 1st, so let's get this rolling!

(Also keep in mind that we asked Hasbro and BW Megatron is a different character than G1 Megatron....Not to sway any votes!)

Please clearly type your nomination, and separate it from your discussion of the Hall of Fame. For example:

My nomination: BEAST WARS MEGATRON

Here is why. Or why I like the previous nomination as well. Or maybe I'm posting a joke here. Perhaps it's a complete non-sequitor. Whatever this is, it's not my nomination, which I've clearly labeled and is easy to see.

FINALLY. Been waiting for this. Grimlock, Jazz, Shockwave are "finallys" too. They deserved to be in long ago. Taking them out opens things up nicely. BW Megatron probably has it sown up this year, but honestly I want to think deeper than that... even if it ends up being moot.

My Nomination: Omega Supreme


-ZacWilliam, Seriously considered the Aerialbots or Insecticons but I kinda a feel they need in as a team rather than individuals. Jetfire/Skyfire would also be a top choice but Omega just barely beats him for me. Part of me would love to nominate Scrounge just because I love him and the Marvel Comic but I don't think he'd get any votes beyond me and after the Erector debacle Hasbro is probably not eager to see anyone who isn't a legit big name.

Now I wonder if Hasbro would let anyone be inducted twice, as part of a team and as an individual (like Eric Clapton). I can't think of any team members other than Grimlock that REALLY stand out though...

Nice to see that everyone nominated in the past 2 years is now officially in (with one exception that I'm grateful for), that should give us an interesting field this year. Which brings us to...


My nomination: Blackarachnia

Crafty, independent, seductive, lethal, and unpredictable. In the small class of female Transformers, she stands out, and the fact that she's had 2.5 incarnations (I count Airachnid as a half, BA was clearly the inspiration for her) is a testament to that.

(I fought against nominating another Beast-era character, but I can't think of anyone else who I thought has had a lasting impact on the franchise yet.)

The Hasbro choices are pretty much no brainers, and as show why voting for them in the past was pointless, they were shoe-ins anyway.

My nomination: Blackarachnia

She was the first female character Hasbro made a toy of, and from starting out from the humble beginnings as a redeco, she eventually got her own original molds. Blackarachnia has also managed to appear in two separate universes. As a character, she has received a ton of character development and growth in both incarnations, more so then a lot of other well known characters.

My nomination: Rhinox

The heart and soul of the Maximal team, he kept them in good repair, kept the equipment up and running, guided them spiritually, and was the heavy hand when a smackdown was required. Also, he won the Beast Wars for them by ramming a shuttlecraft down Megatron's throat.

That's not really a fair title, as Thundercracker, Starscream, Rumble, Frenzy, Laserbeak and Buzzsaw could all lay equal claim on it.

That said, Skywarp and Cracker are both really good choices I didn't think of.


-ZacWilliam, they go with Wheeljack, Mirage, Prowl, Sunstreaker, and Sideswipe as eventual shoe-in IMO...

My nomination: Arcee.

First regular female character in G1, also had incarnations in the Beast Era (via a con exclusive), the Unicron Trilogy, the live-action movies, and Animated...and now Transformers Prime has given her the spotlight in a big way. Honestly, I was ambivalent about the past versions of the character, but the first season of TFP made her my favorite.

I should have said first unique redeco for the Decepticons, as in something that didn't show up in Diaclone or Microchange. Buzzsaw, Sunstreaker, and Trailbreaker are the others.

RAVAGE

First Decepticon to join Megatron, first Transformer to ever have a speaking role in TF fiction, best G1 guy to appear in BW, only Decepticon to get two Alternators and one of two to get his own non-redeco mold, and only Transformer to be canonically labelled as containing a recording of the soundtrack to "Cats".

Ravage is the best.
