When The Revolution Comes, They'll Be The First Against The Wall-Mart

@  D Buster Prime : (26 July 2017 - 06:20 PM)

Wal-Mart? More like Off The Wall-Mart! Amiright?! *cries over canceled preorder*

@  TM2-Megatron : (26 July 2017 - 05:39 PM)

And the Walmart debacle has no doubt pissed off a whole lot of people. What should be fun is turned into a harrowing experience by these kind of pathetic sales tactics

@  TM2-Megatron : (26 July 2017 - 05:38 PM)

Nintendo is really starting to push fans' patience with this SNES classic thing. Why are preorders open someplaces overseas but not in North America?

@  Msol : (26 July 2017 - 05:03 PM)

Well anywho it's out in Canada and I grabbed mine. I couldn't find a thread so just as a warning: watch out when flipping the head out -- I scratched the paint off a bit while doing so. Very little clearance!

@  Msol : (26 July 2017 - 05:01 PM)

Is MPM-3 Bumblebee out in the US yet?

@  Daith : (26 July 2017 - 03:40 PM)

So all of us who thought we had our SNES Classic lined up friday night through Walmart.com just got flipped the bird.

@  Evac : (26 July 2017 - 08:51 AM)

Same.

I just hate Facebook.

@  Confuzor : (26 July 2017 - 01:25 AM)

I hate when follow a link to an article from Facebook it has all this extra junk in the address box, so if I want to copy/paste to send to my friends via text, I have to go hunt down the "permalink" so it's a more manageable size

@  SHIELD Agent 47 : (24 July 2017 - 08:52 PM)

*sigh* Yup.

@  Foffy : (24 July 2017 - 06:16 PM)

That's the exact opposite of what Facebook wants to happen, though. They're hoping you get sucked in by other content and end up spending more time on Facebook and/or making an account.

@  SHIELD Agent 47 : (24 July 2017 - 04:02 PM)

I hate that these days when you use a permalink to a Facebook post, the rest of the page's material still shows up below. Like, WTF, I only want the old way of seeing the post and nothing else!

@  Benbot : (24 July 2017 - 01:34 PM)

I call bullshit on that

@  MEDdMI : (24 July 2017 - 01:08 PM)

Read the article. Apparently too many comics sets off the machines due to the glossy pages messing up the X-ray

@  Benbot : (24 July 2017 - 01:03 PM)

what possible justification could they have to ban books containing drawings?

@  MEDdMI : (24 July 2017 - 12:56 PM)

Per the article, United appears to be the only airline, but there might be others.

@  Dracula : (24 July 2017 - 12:48 PM)

Like anyone needed another reason not to fly United

@  Evac : (24 July 2017 - 12:46 PM)

No, apparently just United did.

I'm something something years old and I have actually never shaved with anything other than electric

@  Benbot : (24 July 2017 - 10:15 AM)

is it worth the trouble?

@  Benbot : (24 July 2017 - 10:15 AM)

Why does a safety razor give a closer shave than an electric razor?

All the jazz about cassettes lately got me in the mood to whip up some templates. So first off, the Eject/Rewind model. The picture is reduced quite a lot to fit them altogether mind,

Rewind and Eject of course, with Bolts, the canned character from an early script of the '86 movie. I rather like the colors I picked out for him icon-hotrod.gif

Also did a modified version for the girls, Flip-Sides and Rosanna.

A number of my OCs use the model as well but I figured I'd only post the official characters here. And Bolts.


Working on the Rumble/Frenzy model atm, including a female version.

(edit!) added cassette forms
(edit2) added Decepticons in lower post

I think I would prefer Takara repaint the Rumble mold into Bolts rather than the Eject mold. Solely because the Eject mold has four different characters to it already while the Rumble mold only has three. The script doesn't specify it being the Eject mold, only that it was humanoid. Plus I think it would be interesting to see an Autobot repaint of Rumble.

Well I think that in all likely hood that this model is what Hasbro was gonna use for whatever humanoid bot they ended up choosing, so Bolts fits nice enough into it for me icon-hotrod.gif

I just want more. I've always loved the cassettes.

I would love them to reissue the remaining 8 soon just so we could get some "other character" variations.

Of course I've already said elswhere that I'd love it if someone made more G1 style cassettes. Not modernized. Not fully poseable. Not updated in any way. Just exactly the style and level of the classic G1 cassettes but new characters. I would love expanded armies.


-ZacWilliam, I know it won't happen, but they're just cool.

Yeah. I know that originally they would have likely used the Eject mold for Bolts if the early script became the actual movie script.

I was saying that if Takara wanted to do more cassette repaints, they should use the Rumble mold for Bolts so that the number of different characters using each mold are even.

Its for that reason I don't want them to do more Ravage and Laserbeak repaints since there are four charactes for each of those molds too.

Instead I want them to repaint Rumble, Ratbat, Slugfest, Overkill, Ramhorn and Steeljaw up to four different characters per mold.

But this is just me putting my personal ideas into words. Your color scheme for Bolts does look good.

Ah ok icon-hotrod.gif

I do have a bunch of OC Autobots who use the Rumble model, I didn't wanna bore everyone with them as I have so many OC cassettebots.

Here is the Rumble model I've worked up. Enemy, Frenzy, Rumble, and Eraser. Eraser is one of my OCs, shown here mostly just to show off the female model I made. She is based off of the orange generic cassettebot seen in the background of some scenes in the early episodes of the cartoon.

So they made Wingthing a cassette, which made me ponder what would happen if they did the same for Blaster's AM partner, Flight Pack.

I did first think Raindance would be suitable, but he was already mostly blue, so I went with Laserbeak. A quick trace over of some Laserbeak art and here it is. Not the most flattering, I think I'll change the weapon/jet packs to black maybe

I think Raindance would ultimately be a better choice , I might whip one up anyway

There's always Sqawktalk too.


ZacWilliam, though then you just need to think up an Autobot Gorrilla

Yeah, I was thinking Squawktalk for Sights instead of Laserbeak.

And am Autobot repaint for Beastbox doesn't have to originally be a gorilla, just someone who would make sense with a new gorilla alternate mode.

Or lets use Ape-Linq and be done with it.

Possibly Glitch? I mean, both have the standard humanoid shape of two arms, two legs, and a head. And the legs are smaller than the arms.

That was another reason I wanted to steer away from Raindance, because it meant a combiner. That said Glitch as a Beastbox recolor doesn't sound too bad...
