Something I only just "got" last night: Of course IDW's GB Blackrock is associated with Onyx Prime. Onyx is a black rock.

Bet a lot of military people won't want to work this monday. ;(

@  Pennpenn : (21 January 2018 - 07:27 AM)

It seems sort of intuitive for a lot of people because it's the first day in the week that you're working.

@  Nevermore : (21 January 2018 - 04:54 AM)

Germany considers Monday the first day of the week.

@  PlutoniumBoss : (21 January 2018 - 01:34 AM)

The judge obviously had a more material motive than the one he claimed, there need to be some serious investigation of that case.

@  Tm_Silverclaw : (20 January 2018 - 05:04 PM)

The reason is even worse. :(

@  SHIELD Agent 47 : (20 January 2018 - 04:34 PM)

That moron is a shame to his profession.

@  Tm_Silverclaw : (20 January 2018 - 09:34 AM)

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)

But do they search barf?

@  BlackMax : (19 January 2018 - 08:38 PM)

Under water, the fish don't stink.

@  Tm_Silverclaw : (19 January 2018 - 07:42 PM)

I read that at first as "Everyone is a fish...."

@  TheMightyMol... : (19 January 2018 - 06:08 PM)

Everyone has a fetish, I guess.

@  BlackMax : (19 January 2018 - 05:56 PM)

I parsed it as "search barf" at first.

@  Nevermore : (19 January 2018 - 11:40 AM)

Netherlands? We got one hell of a storm here in Germany the other day too.

@  SHIELD Agent 47 : (17 January 2018 - 10:46 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?

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...
