@  Maximus Ambus : (16 December 2019 - 02:13 AM)

Is BWTF down?

@  Nevermore : (15 December 2019 - 04:05 PM)

The music, if you'd even call it that, adds to the creepy atmosphere. Apparently it was recorded using sounds created in a real nuclear power plant of the same type as Chernobyl.

@  Nevermore : (15 December 2019 - 04:04 PM)

In case you haven't seen it yet, I highly recommend the HBO mini-series "Chernobyl", which is about, well, you know. It's very intense and not for the faint-heartet. I'd say it's more scary than any horror flick, because (despite some artistic liberties taken with the behavior of some of the characters, and the timeline for some events), it's eerily real.

@  Sabrblade : (15 December 2019 - 10:51 AM)

Hey, at least you baked a cake in the bathroom. Not many can attest to that. :p

@  wonko the sane? : (14 December 2019 - 05:51 PM)

Nope. Forgot entirely, had to make another trip.

@  TheMightyMol... : (14 December 2019 - 04:04 PM)

Well, did you get water?

@  wonko the sane? : (14 December 2019 - 01:56 PM)

Went to the bathroom, shaved, baked a cake... wait, I only got up to get some water...

@  unluckiness : (14 December 2019 - 09:01 AM)

That's a common misconception. You see compared to the first run, it's a new mold.

@  PlutoniumBoss : (14 December 2019 - 03:27 AM)

Wouldn't that just add packaging authenticity? :D

@  SHIELD Agent 47 : (14 December 2019 - 01:44 AM)

I read a anecdote of someone recently receiving a Glacialord with mold because apparently online stores' warehouses have been sitting on Fansproject products like that for years.

@  Rycochet : (13 December 2019 - 11:56 AM)

Unlike many of his peers, Morton diesn't seem to have gone out of his way to try and take every drug going so he's aged remarkably well.

@  Donocropolis : (13 December 2019 - 11:39 AM)

Doesn't seem to have been a market for it, which is too bad, because it perfectly does what it sets out to do.

@  Donocropolis : (13 December 2019 - 11:38 AM)

Just opened it and suddenly I'm 9 years old again.

@  Donocropolis : (13 December 2019 - 11:38 AM)

Bought myself Fansproject Glacialord for my birthday during their Black Friday sale.

@  Nevermore : (12 December 2019 - 07:45 PM)

Morten Harket of A-ha might have aged 35 years on the outside, but his voice is still pretty much the same as it was in 1984. That's some great training and exercise for you.

@  wonko the sane? : (12 December 2019 - 06:59 PM)

Depends entirely on how badly you cooked them. What?

@  TheMightyMol... : (12 December 2019 - 05:33 PM)

Can it raise the dead?

@  RichardT1977 : (12 December 2019 - 05:33 PM)

Cheddar can do just about anything.

@  RichardT1977 : (12 December 2019 - 05:32 PM)

Cream cheese has to be on a bagel or crackers.

@  RichardT1977 : (12 December 2019 - 05:31 PM)

(for example: I like Swiss cheese on sandwiches, but find it merely tolerable by itself)

@  RichardT1977 : (12 December 2019 - 05:30 PM)

I mean are you eating it by itself? With crackers? On a sandwich?

@  TheMightyMol... : (12 December 2019 - 04:48 PM)

I would ask, but I'd rather not know.

@  PlutoniumBoss : (12 December 2019 - 03:38 PM)

With my mouth, usually.

@  RichardT1977 : (12 December 2019 - 08:48 AM)

Depends on how you're eating it.

@  PlutoniumBoss : (12 December 2019 - 01:40 AM)

Havarti, without a doubt.

@  Greebtron : (12 December 2019 - 01:28 AM)

Not Don, thanks. I'd like a writer who actually cares enough to do the job properly

@  Benbot : (11 December 2019 - 09:34 PM)

What's your favorite cheese? I'm not sure, but it's hard to beat muenster.

@  Maximus Ambus : (11 December 2019 - 05:10 PM)

Man I wish IDW could do a season 2.5 with a few writers like Michael Charles Hill or Donald F Glut or Paul Davids involved.

@  TheMightyMol... : (11 December 2019 - 04:33 PM)

They were looking for Skids, but the animators forgot he existed again.

@  Maximus Ambus : (11 December 2019 - 02:58 PM)

He regrouped with Omega Supreme, the Dinobots, Skyfire and the Protectobots.

@  Benbot : (11 December 2019 - 08:20 AM)

Did he get infected with the rest of the Autobots or did he smartly remain off-planet?

@  TheMightyMol... : (11 December 2019 - 05:38 AM)

He really just went to the beach for a couple of days, then called it in. Who's gonna follow up on it?

@  Maximus Ambus : (11 December 2019 - 05:05 AM)

Anyone really believe Cosmos searched far enough for more ingredient for Corrostop?

@  Nevermore : (11 December 2019 - 03:48 AM)

Oh, we are pretty good at "forgetting" about that. Insisting on sending people home on their overtime, THEN suddenly rushing to do the "backlog" stuff when it's really overdue.

@  wonko the sane? : (10 December 2019 - 05:43 PM)

I've yet to find an organization which didn't have a backlog of "stuff" that needs to be done, but isn't important enough to put on the schedule proper.

@  TM2-Megatron : (10 December 2019 - 05:01 PM)

I'm sure most good/bad (depending on your POV) bosses would be able to find something for the worker to do, in most cases, even if it's spending 8 hours pretending to push a broom around

@  Tm_Silverclaw : (10 December 2019 - 04:39 PM)

Still better than American jobs. x.x;

@  NotVeryKnightly : (10 December 2019 - 11:10 AM)

I'm pretty sure you've already mentioned this before. Especially that last one.

@  Nevermore : (10 December 2019 - 11:05 AM)

That can be fun if you're strong-willed enough. "Hey, you want to go home? Overtime reduction, there's nothing to do..." - "Nah, not today. I want to work."

@  Nevermore : (10 December 2019 - 11:04 AM)

This applies to the field of work as well. Meaning, your boss orders you to show up for a full shift, you show up on time and are absolutely willing to work, and then your boss realizes he has no work for you, your boss has to pay you for a full shift even if you don't work at all.

@  Nevermore : (10 December 2019 - 11:03 AM)

Fun fact: German law has a concept named "default in acceptance", which postulates that if there is a "service for payment" contract, the party that should provide the service correctly offers their due service, and the party that should pay fails to accept the service within due time, the second party still has to pay the first party even if there was no service delivered.

@  wonko the sane? : (08 December 2019 - 10:54 PM)

If it's seasonal affective disorder, check with your doc about vitamin D supplements.

@  Maximus Ambus : (08 December 2019 - 12:46 PM)

That's what I was thinking too, It's the christmas rush and if that's not stressful enough the cold weather can also impact mental health.

@  wonko the sane? : (08 December 2019 - 12:41 PM)

Might be a stupid question given the comment, BUT: have you done anything outside the ordinary lately? Might just be a stress reaction.

@  Maximus Ambus : (08 December 2019 - 12:29 PM)

I've experienced sleep paralysis with ghostly images and similar things in the past and can snap out of it through moving my fingers. I've definitely hallucinated before and members of both sides of the family have had similar experience, some suffered forms of mental instability in two cases schizophrenia.

@  wonko the sane? : (08 December 2019 - 10:47 AM)

So... either a hallucination or night terrors. Are you prone to this kind of thing?

@  Maximus Ambus : (07 December 2019 - 11:55 PM)

It kept repeating until I sat up.

@  Maximus Ambus : (07 December 2019 - 11:54 PM)

I've been up since three and when sheepish I was hallucinating something knocking twice against my bedroom door.

@  TheMightyMol... : (07 December 2019 - 06:58 PM)

Then repaint Apeface and Snapdragon as Transmetal Optimus Primal and Megatron. It's crazy enough to work.

@  PlutoniumBoss : (07 December 2019 - 05:32 PM)

Moral imperative.

Latest additions to the collection mainly completing a few sets

 

First up the oldest G1 release in the UK:

 

Transformers The Original Series Vol 1-3 Sony Wonder UK

P3170415_zpsd8d02246.jpg

The first release of Transformers Season one on DVD in the UK. I picked up volume 2 and 3 to complete my set for virtually nothing on ebay. The 3 volumes are taken from broadcast masters and unlike most releases has the audio has not been remixed. The odd thing about these releases is the episodes are out of order.

 

Volume One

Fire on the Mountain

War of the Dinobots

The Ultimate Doom 1-3

Volume Two

More than Meets the Eye 1-3

Transport to Oblivion

Roll for it

Divide and Conquer

Volume Three

Fire in the Sky

SOS Dinobots

Countdown to Extinction

Plague of the Insecticons

Heavy Metal War

 

Next up is another copy of the movie:

 

Transformers The Movie PSP Metrodome UK

P3170421_zps85419eca.jpg

The first release of the movie on the PSP UMD format which is identical to the later release with just the movie and no special features. The funny thing is unlike alot of releases the UMD has the correct audio for Primes Gun.

 

Moving on to something a bit more recent:

 

Transformers Animated Vol 5, 8-10 Paramount Japanese

P3170409_zps30b07a44.jpg

After getting all the other volumes just to have the 3 episodes i was missing i decided to just finnish the set by getting the last 4 i needed. One thing to note about all the DVD's is that all the Autobotto family segments are not included.

 

We now move on to the last Prime disk i needed:

 

Transformers Prime Dawn of the Beast Shout Factory USA

P3170398_zps924c7d91.jpg

The final compilation movie for Season 3 of Transformers Prime compiling the first 4 episodes into one 88 minute movie. Unlike all the previous movie releases this one was exclusive to Target in the USA.

 

Next up is the the last GO! Disks:

 

Transformers GO! Samurai Vol 5, Shinobi Vol 4 Takara Japanese

P3170402_zpsd01e4d56.jpg

The Samurai volume has pretty much just the episode on the disk and videos for other japanese brands. The shinobi volume however has several small promo videos and diorama footage for Transformers along with the episode.

 

Transformers GO! Samurai Vol 6, Encyclopedia Takara Japanese

IMAG0885_zps82e0c3ee.jpg

The Final Go! Episode Disk has a couple of transformers related videos along with the episode itself. These include a Japanese trailer for Age of Extinction and a diorama story. The gold disk was sold at hobby stores in japan as a promo for the series and contains a encyclopedia rundown of the Go! characters and attacks.

 

Continuing with more recent releases:

 

Transformers Rescue Bots: Heros on the Scene Shout Factory USA

IMAG0887_zpsaf301b24.jpg

Another collection of episodes of Rescue Bots, I really wish that shout would do a whole set rather than a tiny bit at a time. Nothing special on the disks just a few more episodes of season 1.

 

Next up is something you dont usually see on the open market.

 

Transformers Takara Headmasters "Check Disk" Metrodome UK

IMAG0891_zps66d31abb.jpg

Found this strange item on ebay a month or 2 back, a set of check disks for Metrodomes release of Headmasters in the UK. From my research into disks like this, I think these may be production samples provided by the mastering house Technicolor for approval and testing by Metrodome. I havent checked all episodes but from the first few i have seen no difference between the released version and the check disks.

 

 

Transformers The Movie (Reconstructed) "Check Disk" Metrodome UK

IMAG0892_zps8971433f.jpg

Got this disk from the same auction as above. The disk contains the Uk Reconstructed version of the movie with the strange open matting. Not had time to look closer to see if there's any differences to what was released at retail.

 

The final addition is one i've been after for a while:

 

Trasformers 2010 Genon Japanese (reissue)

P3170418_zpsaeaa3cd0.jpg

Transformers 2010 is the Japanese release of Transformers G1 season 3 containing 30 episodes over 5 DVD's. This set is a reissue of the disks released in the early 2000's unfortunately the final disk of the older set has been removed so there are no bonuses. The missing disk contained the Japanese Dub of the Rebirth along with the Transformers the Movie Trade Trailer and some commercials. I'd love to get this disk at some point but at the prices the original sets go for i think i'll pass for the moment. 

 

Thats all i have for just now if you have any questions about any of these releases leave a comment and i'll get back to you.

Got a couple of strange items this time which you dont come across alot plus the most recent disks in the Go! and rescue bots series. Also if you haven't checked it out yet Karyuudo Fansubs has released all 39 episodes of Transformers Car Robots subbed in English, you can find a torrent link on his site plus an extra torrent of bonus files from my collection including the Kiss players 15 Go, Go Manga collection and model sheets.

 

First up today the real final disk of GO! 

 

Transformers GO! Samurai Vol 6, Encyclopedia Takara Japanese

IMAG0885_zps82e0c3ee.jpg

The Final Go! Episode Disk has a couple of transformers related videos along with the episode itself. These include a Japanese trailer for Age of Extinction and a diorama story. The gold disk was sold at hobby stores in Japan as a promo for the series and contains a encyclopedia rundown of the Go! characters and attacks.

 

Continuing with more recent releases:

 

Transformers Rescue Bots: Heros on the Scene Shout Factory USA

IMAG0887_zpsaf301b24.jpg

Another collection of episodes of Rescue Bots, I really wish that shout would do a whole set rather than a tiny bit at a time. Nothing special on the disks just a few more episodes of season 1.

 

Next up is something you dont usually see on the open market.

 

Transformers Takara Headmasters "Check Disk" Metrodome UK

IMAG0891_zps66d31abb.jpg

Found this strange item on ebay a month or 2 back, a set of check disks for Metrodomes release of Headmasters in the UK. From my research into disks like this, I think these may be production samples provided by the mastering house Technicolor for approval and testing by Metrodome. I havent checked all episodes but from the first few i have seen no difference between the released version and the check disks. 

 

Transformers The Movie (Reconstructed) "Check Disk" Metrodome UK

IMAG0892_zps8971433f.jpg

Got this disk from the same auction as above. The disk contains the Uk Reconstructed version of the movie with the strange open matting. Not had time to look closer to see if there's any differences to what was released at retail.

 

 

Thats all i have this time as always if you you want any more info on any of these additions leave a comment also if you want to see the Transformers GO! Encyclopedia is now availible on my youtube channel

Say, could some of those cards depict animation cels from deleted scenes?

 

Just can't recall that close up of Megatron with black barrel on the back (much like in Akom episodes, 'cept it doesn't look like their work).

The one with Soundwave and Ravage looks very weird.

Spike with light brown hair, Soundwave with gray "horns"/"ears", Optimus with blue backpack... all look very unfamiliar.

It's certainly possible but i'm not sure. The quality of the printing makes me think they may have been taken directly from the cels but may have had work done to them as some of the backgrounds look off in some way.

Nice, I thought I had a lot of copies of TFTM but you've got a lot of stuff I don't have.  Didn't even know about TFTM on UMD (or maybe I did and forgot), would kind of like it for my collection but I wouldn't want to pay much for it at this point. 

 

You have any Laserdiscs?  The G1 sets can often be found for pretty cheap in Japan, so they might be an alternative to getting the extras (I actually have a Pioneer 2010 set with a missing booklet that I need to get rid of).  Some are really hard to find though, like the BW Special LD.  Already had the DVD but I wanted the LD as well, and it took me a long time to track it down.  There's also the Five Faces of Darkness LD from FHE, with PM Optimus Prime and Action Masters on the cover.  I don't have that one but it would be cool to have considering it's the only TF Laserdisc released in the US (even if I'd like to slap the person who decided to release it instead of TFTM).

If i remember correctly the UMD copy of the Movie is exclusive to the UK and i think that it may be region locked to UK PSP systems. Both of the versions on the market cost virtually nothing on ebay as the UMD format bombed big time.

 

I only recently started using the buyee 3rd party system on yahoo japan auctions which has opened up the possibility of getting the Laserdiscs for a decent price but at the moment i haven't picked up any yet. Although i haven't put pictures of the sets i also have Fight super robot life box 1 and 2, victory box 1 and 2 and Beast wars returns but they are DVD-R copies of the retail disks. 

 
I remember seeing that five faces laserdisc, always thought that was a Japanese Disk. They could have at least put the movie out that would have at least sold a few copies. The one laserdisc i've always wondered about was Transformers Hero which i'm having a hard time believing exists
