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.

@  MEDdMI : (19 January 2018 - 12:14 PM)

But did you get a Snowbombcyclopsragnarokdoomstorm like the US NE got last week?

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

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

@  PlutoniumBoss : (19 January 2018 - 01:59 AM)

@  CORVUS : (19 January 2018 - 12:04 AM)

@  Telly : (18 January 2018 - 10:29 PM)

To be fair, you have to have a very high IQ to understand brick and mortar.

Who sings the first part of the GIJoe The Movie theme song? (Cobra) Sounds so familiar.

@  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?

@  wonko the sane? : (17 January 2018 - 04:38 PM)

Yay! My package from BBTS is in canada! I might even get it this week!

@  Benbot : (17 January 2018 - 02:04 PM)

I need a laptop more than a new desktop

@  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.

@  Benbot : (17 January 2018 - 12:59 PM)

Is now a good time to buy a computer? Or should I wait?

Hypothetical Prime Whirl

I will say, that due to the IDW comics, I want him in the show now. Preferably as a commanche or a cybertronian gunship. But with the IDW personality, but instead of just being a jerk, he was driven insane when his brother, Roadbuster, died.

I think having someone who only Ultra Magnus, not Prime, can keep in line would be cool.

Plus, rarely-used character who is getting the spotlight.

What do you guys think he should be like?

Well, Whirl hasn't really been used often. So, he doesn't have a set personality, so having the IDW one become the standard would be cool.

Plus, the Prime Team seems to use lesser characters as the norm once they got the required six (Prime, BB, Ratchet, Megs, Scream, Soundwave) out of the way.

I don't know if his so-said 'lack' of use would make the IDW characterization anymore plausible a default than his g1 tech spec, or comic portrayals though. I - like I said, would rather they start from an entirely new point.

I say lack as in lack of characterization. He's been in every major comics series (G1, DW, IDW), but only in IDW did he become distinct.

Plus, it'd throw in some instability for the autobots that wouldn't smooth over easily.

Still, I see your point. Maybe have some mix of the ROTF Whirl as well?

Being as there's only one helicopter for him to be a repaint of, he'd be a she.

With extremely confusing spider legs on her back, since she probably wouldn't turn into a spider anymore.

Given that we're working with CGI, the best we can probably hope for at this point is a gunship rendition of the Huey clones that have been cropping up;* otherwise, they'd have to pay for a brand new vehicle model as well rather than just altering an existing one.

With Whirl, his characterization could be that he's seen and done so much that he can never go back to being a civilian.

Optimus has probably read everything on Project Gutenberg.

Ratchet loves to tinker.

Arcee likes long drives.

Bee is a gamer.

Bulkhead enjoys music.

Wheeljack is in to sports.

But Whirl? Dude goes stir crazy unless there's some action. If he's not dismembering Vehicons, he just doesn't know what to do with himself.

Maybe pair him up with Fowler as a study in contrasts: Fowler is a foodie who enjoys long vacations, making him Whirl's polar opposite.









*In real life, the UH-1 Iroquois come in two flavors: "slicks", which had no wings, and "gunships", which did. Gunships have two hard mounts on each wing, enabling them to carry TOW anti-tank missiles, rocket pods, or gun pods (self-contained machine guns with ammo). They were originally created by the United States military to perform air strikes and escort their slick brethren, and ultimately served as a stopgap until the AH-1 Cobra was ready for active-duty service.

Based on my idea, if fused with yours, he sort of inherited Roadbuster's personality when Roadbuster died?

Sounds interesting.

In the sense that they were from the same batch of protoforms, and immediately became friends, and later on, brothers.
