#wetsockforpresident

@  RichardT1977 : (23 January 2017 - 05:33 PM)

Yamcha would be a better President than Trump...

@  TheMightyMol... : (23 January 2017 - 03:06 PM)

Damning with faint praise there.

@  Bass X0 : (23 January 2017 - 03:06 PM)

Kodos would be a better president than Trump.

@  Echowarrior : (23 January 2017 - 02:29 PM)

*whipcrack*

@  TheMightyMol... : (23 January 2017 - 02:23 PM)

Don't blame me! I voted for Kodos!

@  ▲ndrusi : (23 January 2017 - 10:01 AM)

No, all the evils people voted for in 2016 were known.

@  Rycochet : (23 January 2017 - 09:35 AM)

Didn't people have enough of voting for unknown evils in 2016? Come on, it's so last year.

@  Robowang : (23 January 2017 - 08:49 AM)

woooo Unknown Evil

@  ▲ndrusi : (23 January 2017 - 08:21 AM)

Jinbu has legs that go all the way up.

@  Rycochet : (23 January 2017 - 07:11 AM)

Unless you really like legs that go all the way up to the armpits.

@  Rycochet : (23 January 2017 - 07:11 AM)

I would say repaint Jinbu from Transformers Go, but let's not, they're just awful.

@  Pennpenn : (22 January 2017 - 07:20 AM)

He's samurai themed? Anyway, I meant "samurai themed" in the Bludgeon's Pretender shell sense.

@  NotVeryKnightly : (22 January 2017 - 07:15 AM)

Armada Starscream?

@  Pennpenn : (22 January 2017 - 07:13 AM)

Actually I'm vaguely surprized samurai themed Seekers haven't somehow congealed within the TF brand at some point.

@  Telly : (21 January 2017 - 08:26 PM)

if they dont seek pizza im out

@  Bass X0 : (21 January 2017 - 02:40 PM)

Samurai Seeker Jets!

The Big Cheese is the villain, who's lower than low. It's a rotten shame he lives in Little Tokyo.

@  PlutoniumBoss : (21 January 2017 - 12:38 PM)

For the kaiju/restaurant theme, better be the Samurai Pizza Cats instead.

@  Rycochet : (21 January 2017 - 12:28 PM)

I prefer Mighty Morphin' Meower Rangers.

@  PlutoniumBoss : (21 January 2017 - 12:07 PM)

Okay, that got too weird, let's just use the Megazordenny's instead.

@  ▲ndrusi : (21 January 2017 - 09:20 AM)

no, no, not all hope for the characters, all hope for the viewer understanding what the hell is going on.

@  Tm_Silverclaw : (21 January 2017 - 07:33 AM)

Isn't that like.. every second spent watching Eva? *hides!*

@  Telly : (21 January 2017 - 02:26 AM)

usually about halfway through, when all hope seems lost

@  Copper Bezel : (21 January 2017 - 02:01 AM)

I understand using Eva to fight monsters, but where does Bob come into it?

@  PlutoniumBoss : (21 January 2017 - 01:29 AM)

Of course we'll need Bob EVAs to fight all these critters...

@  PlutoniumBoss : (21 January 2017 - 01:21 AM)

Or Otachipotle.

@  RichardT1977 : (20 January 2017 - 11:03 PM)

Sorry Waspinator, but Sean Bean already reserved that one.

@  Pennpenn : (20 January 2017 - 09:51 PM)

Isn't the answer "Pepperoni and Cheese"?

@  Waspinator : (20 January 2017 - 09:12 PM)

"Oh no, not again."

@  The Doctor Who : (20 January 2017 - 08:54 PM)

What do you want on your Tombstone?

@  PlutoniumBoss : (20 January 2017 - 08:52 PM)

I summon Mothrally's to champion the cause of a new/old line of discussion!

@  Pennpenn : (20 January 2017 - 07:24 PM)

Fair enough, sorry. Although, I think as more people get upset you're going to see it leaking out more.

@  TheMightyMol... : (20 January 2017 - 06:25 PM)

Can the politics stay in P&R? I don't really need an emetic that badly.

@  Pennpenn : (20 January 2017 - 05:37 PM)

All of Trump's base are stone cold morons, so there's that. Then again, a lot of people would argue that America has nevr been "great", or even when it is there's plenty to bring down it's score.

@  Vexwing : (20 January 2017 - 04:18 PM)

A lot of Trump's base would probably claim it stopped being great 8 years ago.

@  Locoman : (20 January 2017 - 03:44 PM)

And today is National Cheese Lover's Day, apparently, so perhaps we should make America grate again while we're at it

@  Bass X0 : (20 January 2017 - 03:43 PM)

How long has it not been great for?

@  Nevermore : (20 January 2017 - 02:34 PM)

Finally, America is great again.

@  wonko the sane? : (20 January 2017 - 12:03 PM)

Me too!

@  Arazyr : (20 January 2017 - 10:08 AM)

My daughters and I have been looking forward to that!

@  Benbot : (20 January 2017 - 09:44 AM)

Nevermind that. Today is a day to celebrate, because season 2 of Voltron is up on Netflix!

@  ShadowMan024 : (19 January 2017 - 06:51 PM)

Past 8 years? Try "past 241."

@  Xellos : (19 January 2017 - 06:44 PM)

So basically the same as the past 8 years. Guess that works too.

@  TheMightyMol... : (19 January 2017 - 06:25 PM)

We as a nation either drank too much or not enough. It's difficult to say, really.

@  PlutoniumBoss : (19 January 2017 - 06:10 PM)

Isn't America being crazy drunk how we got in this situation in the first place?

@  BlackMax : (19 January 2017 - 04:18 PM)

I plan on being very American about every single injustice our new leader perpetrates ("American" of course meaning "annoyed and loud").

@  TheMightyMol... : (19 January 2017 - 02:38 PM)

I plan to just stick my fingers in my ears and pretend I don't hear anything.

@  Bass X0 : (19 January 2017 - 02:26 PM)

I recommend America just get crazy drunk for the next four years. It's the only way you're going to get through them.

@  Paladin : (19 January 2017 - 08:34 AM)

everyone go vote for Guilermo Del Toro. We need a Hellboy 3 now more than ever. https://www.bleeding...nt-hellboy-iii/

I did. Just now. Cyberverse Vehicon.

I just wanted some TF coolness of my own. He's a poor substitute for Spinister, the MST, and cool Diarama Displays, but it's something.


-ZacWilliam, now if I could find Voyager Bulkhead (yeah right) or Deluxe Vehicon, THAT might make me feel completely better, icon-hotrod.gif

Yeah, rapido is easily one of the best of the 2010 set. Glad to have him.

But this weekend, I would love to find any of the newer prime stuff, especially deluxe wave 3. I'll even be in a town with a target, TRU, and 2 walmarts tomorrow, but I'm sure I won't find anything new.

Would love to find new toys, but all I want is a Vehicon and I don't anticipate finding him soon. (Decided to wait on the others in that wave.) Still, fingers crossed.

Yeah, I'm very pleased with Rapido. He embodies g2 for me. The problem is now I'm looking at getting myself a Brakedown to battle him. Which is...yikes. Hence the ko desire creeping into my otherwise non-ko thoughts. The color scheme is just too exciting, on any figure.

Rapido is pretty great. I've never loved the Classics Prowl mold, but that head sculpt is just fantastic, and the colors are lovely. I'd really recommend finding one, even if you feel like I do about the mold.

I also really dig last year's SG Galvatron--I don't care about the fiction, so I just like the idea that a Decepticon leader is disguised as a nice friendly rescue chopper. Very movie-Barricadey.

Those two and the keychain Mini-Bots are the only BotCon exclusives on my shelves (I have others from 2011 that I finally got around to listing for sale), but I should have a 2012 bagged set once the non-attendings ship. So I'm gonna try to be patient until then, and not go digging on eBay for ones I've missed. icon-hotrod.gif

But I might have to make an exception for Spinister. Because I want Spinister.

If I could find one that was decoed and molded in the colors of a favorite character from my childhood I might. (But probably not cause my wife would kill me.)


-ZacWilliam, part of the reason I bought the Vehicon was to pretend he was G1 Blackjack.

I would, but my area just has assorted DOTM toys. I found a ROTF Chromia and Dlx Wheelie at a Rite Aid though, don't think those count.
