A nerd.

@  Nevermore : (21 July 2017 - 04:19 PM)

Speaking of, what do you call someone who collects toys of the Marvel character The Collector?

@  Nevermore : (21 July 2017 - 04:18 PM)

What about people who collect the "Die Hard" movies?

@  wonko the sane? : (21 July 2017 - 03:54 PM)

A lot of the die hard collectors don't need to be louder...

@  SHIELD Agent 47 : (21 July 2017 - 03:22 PM)

@Nevermore Benbot means "amped" as in excited. I believe the term is shorthand for (a sound) amplifier.

@  Nevermore : (21 July 2017 - 03:10 PM)

Or is "shorthand" a synonym for "amputated"?

@  Nevermore : (21 July 2017 - 03:10 PM)

Is "amped" shorthand for "amputated"?

@  Benbot : (21 July 2017 - 12:28 PM)

I am amped! But I also have standards.

@  Fear or Courage : (21 July 2017 - 08:38 AM)

I consider Thew to basically be the model toy collector. We should all aim to be so amped about the thing we collect.

@  Pennpenn : (21 July 2017 - 07:21 AM)

And some people are just whiny jerks who like to complain about stuff and don't realise that, so will invent irrational grievances to fuel that need.

@  Rycochet : (21 July 2017 - 06:13 AM)

A lot of toy collectors don't seem to get that the things the collect are toys.and have unrealistic expectations of what's doable in a modern retail environment. You're not going to get a $100 figure's worth of parts and paint for $20 or less and gimmicks are needed tomake the toys actually, you know, fun.

@  Foffy : (20 July 2017 - 09:40 PM)

Not necessarily. With the right condiments, they can taste surprisingly nice.

@  Evac : (20 July 2017 - 09:37 PM)

I think most toy collectors are bitter in some form.

@  Diecast : (20 July 2017 - 09:37 PM)

...or maybe I'm the bitter one?!  Oh no.

@  Diecast : (20 July 2017 - 09:32 PM)

And I don't even mean that everyone should love it all. But it does seem to bring the angrier ones in from the lurking.

@  Diecast : (20 July 2017 - 09:29 PM)

It's these reveals that always remind me how exceptionally bitter a large portion of toy collectors are on other forums.

@  Sean Whitmore : (20 July 2017 - 07:06 PM)

SDCC toy reveals make adults happy by telling them what they can get eventually. Kids don't care what they can get eventually, you make them happy by getting them whatever's available now.

@  Jalaguy : (20 July 2017 - 06:10 PM)

They exist, they just don't show them at SDCC because they assume that the adult fanbase doesn't care about them.

@  Steevy Maximus : (20 July 2017 - 06:03 PM)

On SDCC stuff...I'm disappointed, but not surprised, at the lack of the actual KIDS toys among all the toys for us old men

Does anyone else find Hoist's smile on that MP ad for BBTS slightly disturbing?

@  Bass X0 : (19 July 2017 - 11:39 AM)

In to the darkness, snuffing out the light, fighting for the things you know aren't right

Snuff out the light, claim your right, to a world of darkness!

@  Bass X0 : (19 July 2017 - 08:33 AM)

Then we must block it out, just like Mr. Burns had foretold.

Sunlight is overrated.

@  Tm_Silverclaw : (18 July 2017 - 06:01 PM)

isn't "Blessed by Satan" an oxymoron?

@  Dracula : (18 July 2017 - 05:11 PM)

basically the sunscreen has to be blessed by satan.

@  MEDdMI : (18 July 2017 - 05:07 PM)

@Dracula what SPF do you nees to not get turned into dust in the sun?

@  Dracula : (18 July 2017 - 04:42 PM)

That's typical summers for where I live. bleh

@  MEDdMI : (18 July 2017 - 04:02 PM)

Isn't it fun when it's so humid, it feels like your eyeballs are sweating?

@  Kalidor : (18 July 2017 - 03:34 PM)

If only we were as progressive in Bea Arthur's day as we are now.

This show is still more fun and enjoyable then Prime is.

Also Doc Green's car at the start looks like it was a homage to the Delorian Time Machine.

Anyone know when the repeat is scheduled? I had college today, and no one was at home to fiddle with the VCR for me (I don't have the $$$ for a DVR).

I quite liked the first two episodes, but I found this one just dull. Too much in the way of mundane disasters (rockslides, lightning strikes), too little whacky super-science.

Even if it doesn't have the long-running plots of Prime, it does character moments far, far, far better than Prime ever has. And I'd rather have character over plot any day. Like My Little Pony: Friendship is Magic. Hey, how about that!
Being part of any fandom is fundamentally embarassing.

As usual, great fun! I loved the Delorean homage, and was Dani's suggestion to try to stop it by landing on it a reference to the second BTTF when Marty suggests something similar?

Did anyone catch the name of the cliffs where Blades went down?

Also, is there a trailer for next week's episode anywhere?

I liked that this one focused on Dani, and yes that was totally the Delorean Time Machine with green liquid instead of blue lightning.

Finally got around to watching my tape of the Sunday broadcast.

Actually, I found the string of disasters to be pretty reasonable, especially if they all took place over a relatively short span of time (such as 2 - 3 days).

In my neck of the woods, we can get some pretty powerful storms moving on through. What's worse, rather than one large storm simply coming and going, we can have entire weeks in which the storms arbitrarily come and go.

Bridge out? A hard wind and a hard rain could have taken it down with ease.

Rock slide? Hard rain over a prolonged period can actually weaken the structure of some formations. In fact, we've actually got a problem around here with a local variety of clay: it's absolutely solid when dry, but disintegrates completely when wet.

Tree down? Hard winds.

Then we have the lightning storm that made for the major twist in the episode.

Good character episode for Blades. I like they they teased him for the shovel-gut and then resented his glory-hogging (which was really more Dani's influence). As with Prime, this show sells itself to me on the strength of the personalities. I like that even though this is the show for the younger set, the characters have quirks (Heatwave is a jerk, Blades a bit of a pantywaist, Chase is uptight, etc).

This would have been a great episode to introduce the Rescue Gear gimmick. Doesn't Hasbro want to sell toys? Why hasn't Sawyer Storm made an appearance?

Oh, and Rescue Bots is better than Prime.

You know, after watching this episode, I just have to draw a crossover pic of G1 Blades holding this counterpart of him dangling from a one-story height building, expressing his disbelief that this guy is supposed to be him... icon-fire.gif
