Yeah, my hybrid does that when idling or at low speeds. Otherwise it's almost completely silent.

That might actually be a fake noise they make electric cars make so pedestrians can hear them. Some cars even let you pick out what noise they make.

@  wonko the sane? : (13 May 2021 - 11:20 AM)

Actually heard a car with that electric, scifi-hum to it. Made me realize that we kinda are living in the future...

@  tigerhawk : (13 May 2021 - 03:28 AM)

Nearly thirty Studio Series figs including the '86 line. "I won't touch that." I said a few years ago when deluxe wave 5 came to my store for a tenner each. My latest one' is 72 Starscream.

@  tigerhawk : (10 May 2021 - 02:56 AM)

The 1988 G1 line up could all have been done as Titan Master things, I figure the Pretenders could be done as Titan Master Drones and Prime Master shells.

@  Cyoti : (08 May 2021 - 11:14 AM)

Perfect is the enemy of the good. And it's still better than making him a remold of RTS Jazz as planned originally. Fact of the matter is: Nightbeat is just not a priority with Hasbro.

@  Demovere Xeno : (08 May 2021 - 08:58 AM)

Generations Nightbeat never really scratched that itch sadly; he looked okay, but his transformation was fiddly, his robot mode had far too many bits and pieces flopping around unsecured, and his chest dragged along the surface in var mode. =/

@  Demovere Xeno : (08 May 2021 - 08:57 AM)

I second wishing that we got a Deluxe Nightbeat from TR, mostly because as a kid he was second-in-command to my old Powermaster Optimus for the longest time. =P

@  tigerhawk : (08 May 2021 - 05:41 AM)

Wipe Out and Wilder it coulda been: Wipe Out is down in the dumps because the Scramble City Trypticon was destroyed and left him a drifting to the point he arrives in Legends World, he finds Wilder and both go on a crime spree subverted by their realisation neither gets any joy from it until they stop a violent crook together and become anti heroes. (Bass XO beat me!)

@  Bass X0 : (08 May 2021 - 05:39 AM)

Yes, Nightbeat and Siren would have been easy remolds of Chromedome - just give them new chests and each other's Titan Master heads. Fangry and Squeezeplay would be remolded from Twinferno with their own Titan Master heads. And Horri-Bull would have been remolded from Wolfwire.

@  Rycochet : (07 May 2021 - 05:10 PM)

Surprised we didn't get a full size retool from the monsterbot mold. I'd rather have a CW Ironhide retool though, we need a van Wilder.

@  tigerhawk : (07 May 2021 - 04:19 PM)

I just noticed Wilder was the only omission from Takara Legends.

@  Nevermore : (07 May 2021 - 06:01 AM)

Even more weirdly, it was the early shift where some people had their regular day off for the week, while the late shift was supposed to have full attendance (not counting sick days, vacations and overtime reduction).

@  Nevermore : (07 May 2021 - 01:15 AM)

The weirdest part was that there was a steady influx of voters during the early shift, while hardly anyone showed up during the late shift.

@  Nevermore : (07 May 2021 - 01:14 AM)

Wow, that was a long day. But it's over, and I finally got some sleep. Not particularly happy with the outcome, but then again, my candidates both admit they didn't really campaign that much.

@  Nevermore : (05 May 2021 - 03:14 PM)

The election committee whose chairman I am has been preparing this election since February. There's no real gain for me either way, so I don't care that much for the outcome, but it's going to be a stressful day for me either way.

@  Nevermore : (05 May 2021 - 03:13 PM)

Wish me luck. Tomorrow is this year's supervisory board election at my workplace, and I'm the guy in charge of organizing the election.

@  tigerhawk : (05 May 2021 - 01:30 PM)

I have two Overlords one was faulty with a melted foot and they never took it back but replaced it, I just checked the guns, both the handles seem to be turning white.

@  Telly : (04 May 2021 - 07:18 PM)

pansy. my trypticon AND scorponok took a header from 4 feet up and only had parts pop off that were easily reattached. guess 'cons are tougher...

@  tigerhawk : (04 May 2021 - 04:03 PM)

My TR Perceptor fell and the titan master peg in the leg snapped off. Fortunately I have the Legends one.

@  wonko the sane? : (02 May 2021 - 08:50 PM)

It's a fairly well known fact that "it's a wonderful life" only became popular after it dropped into the public domain. So, yeah, they probably did.

@  SHIELD Agent 47 : (02 May 2021 - 08:29 PM)

I read an interesting observation on Twitter. If it is the natural course of a human to grow into Grandpa Abe yelling at a cloud, but nostalgia also yields rose-tinted glasses for the likes of one's youth, then did Greatest Generation adults bemoan how Baby Boomer children loved box office flops such as The Wizard of Oz and It's a Wonderful Life?

@  Otaku : (02 May 2021 - 09:26 AM)

At the same time, with my almost non-existent knowledge of Japanese and how oddly some things translate, seeing "Gorgeous Giorgios Gorges" made me wonder if that would make it "JoJoJo"... which now has my brain terrified of a weird Bobobo-bo Bo-bobo/Jojo's Bizarre Adventure Crossover. @[email protected]

@  Otaku : (02 May 2021 - 09:24 AM)

It is always weird when things align.  This talk of Gorgeous Giorgios Gorges in the SquawkBox reminded me of King Gorgeous Gorge on the FoxBox.

@  -LittleAutob... : (01 May 2021 - 08:52 PM)

Nice

@  Nevermore : (01 May 2021 - 09:03 AM)

I got one even better: After that character by the name of Gorgeous Giorgios dies in a gorge, they name that whole area after him: The Gorgeous Giorgios Gorges.

@  tigerhawk : (30 April 2021 - 01:56 AM)

Paint apps did slide notably during TR, wave one's Titan Masters had detail but wave 2 onwards was absent of them. Wave 5's Ramhorn, Dreadnaut, Scorchfire and Aimless had detail but Murk and Hazard didn't, can't speak for Flameout as I got Legends Twintwist and Slugslinger.

@  kizudarake : (29 April 2021 - 04:50 PM)

Anyone here got any g1 jet fire parts for sale?

@  wonko the sane? : (29 April 2021 - 04:12 PM)

Other than a few overly tight joints, the paints apps are my single complaint about the generations line.

@  tigerhawk : (29 April 2021 - 02:25 PM)

I just saw Legends Leo Prime now I wish Titans Return Alpha Trion had a few more paint apps for ship mode.

True. But on the other hand, think of what it must be like to see this legendary Commander Shepard heading directly at YOU with guns blazing, taking every shot you and your crew send her way with hardly a reaction and just continuing to barrel down on your position.

Sure, if you play Sentinel. I prefer Infiltrator (if they see me coming at all, I did it wrong) or Engineer (they're too busy focusing on my drones, turrets, and their drones and turrets that are also now mine).

I'm typically either Vanguard or Adept. Either way I play the same. Throw absolutely all the dakka and biotic energy I have at them so fast and hard it doesn't matter if they see me coming or not. Either way they're hugged. There's no situation that can't be solved without more ammunition.

11 playthroughs and he hasn't died once, not even on my renegade playthrough. Just love the guy to death. He's like that head butting uncle I never had.

I still say if you're gonna make the same choices every time, you're not really experiencing the game to its fullest.

I'd argue trading Wrex for Wreav is not experiencing the game to its fullest.

 

ME3 pretty much cements the idea that your choices really don't matter, except in regards to which character fulfills what role for a set story. And for said set story (ie the Genophage), Wrex makes the entire story much more impactful and meaningful. Wreav...doesn't.

 

It's the same reason I always will go through Legion's story and talk the Quarians and Geth into co-existing despite opting to only go the Destroy route, because it leads to the best ending for Tali.

 

 

End of the day, Mass Effect's "Choices Matter" fell flat in terms of what does and doesn't matter. So why not just make sure you experience the preset narrative in the manner you want to, instead of selecting the glaringly weaker secondary option merely for "variety"? That was a novel idea back before ME3 demonstrated that nothing that you chose actually did have consequence. Post-ME3? Keeping Wrex alive every playthrough just leads to a better overall experience.

It kinda depends on what impact you were expecting your choices to have. I mean, it's a video game, there was always gonna be a pretty set narrative destination; but your choices make a big impact on how you get there. Killed Wrex? Have fun with Wreav being a krogan stereotype. Didn't set up peace between the quarians and geth? Congrats, you get to watch Tali walk off a cliff. And so on. The destination doesn't change, but the journey is the meat of it.

Yeah, to me its about the journey overall, exploring what happens. To me that is the fun of games that let you explore and make choices; not making sure you get the best ending; but how things go on the way to whatever ending you do get. Its why I don't like using guides on these kinda games the first few times I play them, I wanna see what happens, the good and the bad.

Different takes for different folks, I suppose. Like I said, I kind of lost interest in the Multi-choice narrative when the one choice I was most invested in got thrown in the bin (The Rachni). When I replay Mass Effect, I do so viewing it as "comfort food", and tend to just take the options that lead to the narrative destination I want for the characters. At least in that means I get the outcome I want instead of no meaningful outcome at all. (Yes, it's a bit of a salty take but dammit the Rachni choice was a MAJOR one in the first ME game for it to not matter at all in Part Three.)

 

Same reason I always tap Udina as the Ambassador in the first game now. He ends up the Ambassador in Part 3 anyway, and at least this way there's some narrative cohesion to that.

Vega is such a weird character for me. I actually like the character well enough (He and Garrus' bullshitathon is a great scene), but his design is weird. Not sure if it's the fact he's bulked out so much with the "modern" hairstyle that wasn't really a thing in previous Mass Effects...but I could never get over the fact he didn't look right compared to everyone else.

 

Like I said, never objected to him as part of the roster or as a character, but his design has always bothered me.
