Phyrexians are the bishie-est.

@  unluckiness : (24 May 2019 - 12:29 AM)

That's why they always wear long sleeved shirts and long pants

@  fourteenwings : (23 May 2019 - 11:36 PM)

Everybody knows the most bishie thing about any bishie is his exposed sinew.

@  MEDdMI : (23 May 2019 - 10:04 PM)

*looks up the humanoid slivers* ...really? People were calling those bishies?

@  TheMightyMol... : (23 May 2019 - 12:45 PM)

Have they made a sliver planeswalker yet?

@  RichardT1977 : (23 May 2019 - 10:29 AM)

"DECOMPOSE!"

@  Paladin : (23 May 2019 - 06:29 AM)

will they next evolve into Inhumanoids?

@  Ashley : (23 May 2019 - 02:42 AM)

the original slivers were spikey monsters. then the evolved into humanoids. now they're back to spikey bug monsters.

@  MEDdMI : (22 May 2019 - 10:42 PM)

Wait. Slivers were bishies???

@  unluckiness : (22 May 2019 - 10:40 PM)

They haven't necessarily looped yet. It's possible they're stuck in "yaoi anatomy"

@  Ashley : (22 May 2019 - 10:35 PM)

I think Slivers in MTG have crossed the bishonen line and looped back around to monstrous

@  wonko the sane? : (22 May 2019 - 09:48 PM)

Maxi, provigo, loblaws.

@  RichardT1977 : (22 May 2019 - 09:42 PM)

Which store brand is it?

@  wonko the sane? : (22 May 2019 - 05:52 PM)

I need to buy more "no name" foods. This pizza is freaking awesome.

@  Bass X0 : (20 May 2019 - 11:16 AM)

SEND THE BOOKS!!

@  Cybersnark : (20 May 2019 - 08:52 AM)

So, now that Game of Thrones is over, when can we get back to The Dragon Prince?

@  unluckiness : (20 May 2019 - 12:19 AM)

Like, half of them nowadays are montages of tweet screencaps from the writer's inbox

@  unluckiness : (20 May 2019 - 12:18 AM)

lol you expected integrity from internet news

@  fourteenwings : (19 May 2019 - 11:33 PM)

I'm mostly confused how news sites went from "Analysing all the amazingness of Game of Thrones" to "Fans sure don't like this season!", like... way to prioritize clicks over a solid editorial opinion

@  fourteenwings : (19 May 2019 - 11:30 PM)

[and there's a recurring setting of a "derelict industrial site"] is this like the Toei Quarry?

@  MEDdMI : (19 May 2019 - 11:17 PM)

@Foffy and then that giant lasagna just tipped over and killed everyone, to be later known as the infamous Bad Monday event.

@  SHIELD Agent 47 : (19 May 2019 - 10:59 PM)

Ahahaha!!! Go read the reactions for yourself. To say anything more here risks spoiling the finale for subscribing Allsparkers, the quality of this season notwithstanding.

@  Foffy : (19 May 2019 - 10:59 PM)

pretty wild how heathcliff was in the game of thrones finale, i was not expecting that crossover

@  TM2-Megatron : (19 May 2019 - 10:48 PM)

were they still super pissed?

@  SHIELD Agent 47 : (19 May 2019 - 10:48 PM)

Well, as someone who is not into Game of Thrones, it sure was entertaining to open up social media this evening to unexpectedly see headlines about fan reactions to the finale. Lmao.

@  Nevermore : (19 May 2019 - 06:12 PM)

But it's also a SUPER-well known location in my region, so these extensive exterior shots without any post production alterations completely ruin the illusion for me.

@  Nevermore : (19 May 2019 - 06:11 PM)

I mean, I get why they did it: It's an existing location that fits the purpose, it's open for the public, and they had to shoot some scenes in my home state anyway to due a subsidizing deal.

@  Nevermore : (19 May 2019 - 06:09 PM)

Needless to say, it's not in Berlin, and even what's seen onscreen is waaaaay too modern for something that's supposed to exist in 1929 (even moreso as a derelict site in 1929). The structures seen haven't even been built until the 1960s!

@  Nevermore : (19 May 2019 - 06:07 PM)

I'm currently in the process of watching season 2 of Babylon Berlin, and there's a recurring setting of a "derelict industrial site" or whatever it's supposed to be on the show, and I easily recognize it as a place only a few minutes from where I live (it's actually a former ironworks site that's been turned into a public park).

@  Xellos : (19 May 2019 - 05:52 PM)

Ever since I went to Japan last year, I have friend who dread watching anime with me due to that...

@  Xellos : (19 May 2019 - 05:51 PM)

Not hugely, but I am the type to notice places once I have been there and say "Hey, I've been there!"

@  wonko the sane? : (19 May 2019 - 05:50 PM)

Half of new york city (on tape.) is actually montreal.

@  TM2-Megatron : (19 May 2019 - 05:50 PM)

I watched Death Wish 5 last night and clearly recognized Toronto streets; didn't pull me out of Bronson's 1-man war on drugs or fashion or whatever it was that pissed him off that time

@  TM2-Megatron : (19 May 2019 - 05:49 PM)

it's nice to finally be thought of as exotic by somebody! lol

@  Nevermore : (19 May 2019 - 05:48 PM)

In an "I cannot possibly make my brain ignore the location I'm familiar with and pretend it's whatever the story claims it is" way?

@  Nevermore : (19 May 2019 - 05:42 PM)

Question for those of you living in exotic locations such as the US or the UK: If you watch a movie or a TV show that features a real-life location as a stand-in for someplace else, and you recognize the real-life location due to having been there in person, does that pull you out of the story?

@  Xellos : (19 May 2019 - 05:15 PM)

Maybe you should have installed macOS in your house instead.

@  Noideaforaname : (19 May 2019 - 04:40 PM)

Nothing like coming home after a long day to find a bird in the house. And then once you sit down for a well-earned rest after leading the bird back outside, you find it had a friend. A friend who *really* doesn't understand how windows work...

@  PlutoniumBoss : (19 May 2019 - 01:26 PM)

Bingo. The big polls don't tell people what's actually happening because that doesn't sell.

@  fourteenwings : (19 May 2019 - 10:59 AM)

IIRC there are good polls but data is easily manipulated so they give people what they want to hear

@  wonko the sane? : (19 May 2019 - 10:58 AM)

The only way to get people interested in politics is to make into reality TV. So they lie to do it.

@  PlutoniumBoss : (19 May 2019 - 01:38 AM)

Yeah, polling these days is garbage.

@  Sean Whitmore : (18 May 2019 - 11:53 PM)

Well, he was an honest man. He wasn’t gonna lie to a 5-year-old.

@  Paladin : (18 May 2019 - 08:34 PM)

Grandfather once said to me, "I'm going upstairs and hug your grandma."

@  Sabrblade : (18 May 2019 - 07:08 PM)

Mama always said that you can tell a lot 'bout a person from 'is shoes...

@  TheMightyMol... : (18 May 2019 - 03:54 PM)

Life is like a box of chocolates. Stay out of the sun or melt into a pile of gross slop.

@  wonko the sane? : (18 May 2019 - 10:26 AM)

Greasy, disappointing and still managing to be over priced?

@  Lancer : (18 May 2019 - 10:22 AM)

... Yes, it is!

@  Noideaforaname : (18 May 2019 - 09:48 AM)

Life's a fillet of fish!

I'll see how well my scanner handles it but im sure i can sort something out got the car and helicopter modes as well just had robot mode in the light box at the time. Took ages to find some way to display it but in the end ripping the rails off a cheap letter light box did the trick.

 

The mega DVD and the 4 below are dutch releases of Generation 2.The 4 black volumes have episodes 1-12 of season 1 with the final episode and the first 6 i think of season 2 on the mega DVD.

You and I need to have a conversation about our collections.     I think I saw 1 or 2 things that I am missing in your pictures but I'd have to check.    One that I know I haven't seen before is that fat RID 2k15 release.    I'm guessing that's a UK release?     Looks like you have a nice growing collection.     I'm glad to see I'm not the only passionate (some would say insane LOL) video collector.

Hey rockman good to see your still around. Yea im mainly focusing on completing my Japanese sets right now, got lucky recently and picked up superlink and micron legend for $40 plus shipping for the 26 dvds, That rid 2k15 set is the season 1 set from Australia, the Aussies are getting the bulk of all the new dvd releases right now with all the seasons of rid 2k15, the first 2 seasons of rescue bots and volume 1 of cyberverse which came out last week all available. Yea it would be cool to chat sometime and talk shop not alot of collectors like us around in the era of netflix.

Thanks for the tip on the RID set.    I have been acquiring Aussie videos here and there, although I can't seem to find a guy who's selling TFTM on VHS and willing to ship to the US.    The one guy who has it now on Ebay says he'll only ship within Australia.   Meanwhile, many months later, nobody has bid on his auction LOL.  I'll send you a PM a bit later to see if we can chat a bit at some point.

like japan there is no definitive listing for all the g1 era tapes from austrailia. From the tapes i have seen it looks like the distributors changed all the time so none of the tapes look similar and the vast majority are sun faded due to the climate so most of the time 2nd hand examples look like crap.

 

i think i have seen that movie tape on sale on and off for several years and if i remember correctly it doesnt look great either. Id love to add more variants to my movie collection but the prices wanted for most of the alternate language versions are astronomical on ebay

Do you guys know how many Japanese picture books feature the model sheets? Or is this one the only one:

Just updated the blog today with the complete collection of scripts for Transformers Beast Wars to go along with the set of G1 scripts i put up a few months ago. I seem to be on a Beast Wars kick as of late must be the excitement for neo being complete soon :)

Threw together a script timeline for Beast Wars from your collection.  Apart from showing how scripting had changed in 10 years, also offers a glimpse of how I'd like at least one of the sheets on my Marvel/Sunbow project to look someday: https://drive.google...iew?usp=sharing

Oops, hadn't realised the link wasn't sharing properly.  Should work now.

 

Marvel/Sunbow project?

 

My production timeline that I started collecting data for nearly a year ago.  Took a decent step forward lately thanks to some out-of-print DVDs I managed to snag cheap off ebay

BTW, when it comes to TF model sheets (and probably G.I. Joe as well), the dates are very, VERY unreliable as they often failed to stamp the latest date. This is why you might encounter multiple revisions that have same sets of dates.

 

Example:

I'm not going too deep into model sheets.  Only where there are currently no other reference materials to place an episode in the timeline.  For instance, I wouldn't have need of sheets for the 2nd wave of '85 cast, because we have the script dates for Dinobot Island and those sheets were drawn up months before for the toy and comic adverts anyway.  Similar thing with Rebirth, the '87 cast who debut in that series were drawn up and approved the previous summer for their respective adverts.
