*good week

@  Steevy Maximus : (02 December 2020 - 05:35 PM)

It's been a good work for The Hunt: got Netflix Bumblebee (suck it Walmart!) and stopped at Walgreens and found a lone Bluestreak. I'm pretty much done until new stuff rolls out in February

@  tigerhawk : (02 December 2020 - 03:53 PM)

There's some fab fandubs of comic scenes on Youtube, it's MTMTE/LL mostly but there's some great stuff such as Tarn learning of Megatron's defection and Megatron talking to Ravage.

@  Steevy Maximus : (30 November 2020 - 09:31 PM)

Wonderful audio separation and balance.

@  Steevy Maximus : (30 November 2020 - 09:29 PM)

For Transformers The Movie 86

@  Steevy Maximus : (30 November 2020 - 09:28 PM)

I will say, the blu ray remaster, especially the audio is pretty spot on. Watching it on Apple TV has been enlightening.

@  SHIELD Agent 47 : (30 November 2020 - 09:00 PM)

Vode An!

@  SHIELD Agent 47 : (30 November 2020 - 08:59 PM)

I do not overly care for the Bad Batch, but it will be interesting to see what the animated series will bring to the table.

@  SHIELD Agent 47 : (30 November 2020 - 08:59 PM)

Alpha, Delta Squad, Omega Squad, and the Muunilinst 10 are quite the contrast to what we have at present in Disney canon.

@  SHIELD Agent 47 : (30 November 2020 - 08:57 PM)

Who else here read the pre-2008 Clone Commandos and ARC Troopers back in the day?

@  tigerhawk : (30 November 2020 - 05:04 PM)

Monoliths in Utah and Romania.

@  Sabrblade : (29 November 2020 - 05:11 PM)

Also, the face of the black redeco is painted gray.

@  Sabrblade : (29 November 2020 - 05:09 PM)

To be a little fair, the original was also lacking in more detailed color. The Telemocha Series figure fixed that.

@  TheMightyMol... : (29 November 2020 - 05:05 PM)

The unpainted face and all the greys make that look like a knockoff.

@  Sabrblade : (29 November 2020 - 05:01 PM)

One could headcanon this one as such.

@  Otaku : (29 November 2020 - 01:06 PM)

@Bass X0 Weird how they come close, with the likes of Onyx Primal and Nemesis Prime (Universe 2003), but no actual evil gorilla...

@  wonko the sane? : (28 November 2020 - 03:00 PM)

Oh my god! WFC ravage is adorable! Who's a pudgy kitty? Yes you are!

@  tigerhawk : (28 November 2020 - 09:50 AM)

The 86 line prevented made me reconsider a new years resolution.

@  unluckiness : (28 November 2020 - 04:33 AM)

And Devastator because I'm a sucker for combiners

@  unluckiness : (28 November 2020 - 04:32 AM)

Decided to stick with the main cast from 2007 and a few assorted ones here and there.

@  TheMightyMol... : (27 November 2020 - 02:02 PM)

I said I wouldn't buy a lot, now I have seven. And at least three might be on the culling pile.

@  tigerhawk : (27 November 2020 - 11:44 AM)

"I'll just get one" I said now I have almost twenty Studio Series figures.

@  wonko the sane? : (27 November 2020 - 11:19 AM)

The geese are fleeing... death comes soon...

@  unluckiness : (25 November 2020 - 07:20 PM)

Not even head, just a faceeven

@  TheMightyMol... : (25 November 2020 - 12:58 PM)

Just stick a Megatron head on Optimal Optimus.

@  Sabrblade : (25 November 2020 - 12:46 PM)

There was also an evil-looking black and gray redeco of the RobotMasters toy

@  Arazyr : (25 November 2020 - 11:54 AM)

That's KIND-OF what I consider the Throne of the Primes Primal to be...

@  wonko the sane? : (25 November 2020 - 11:16 AM)

I would buy the hell out a nemesis primal...

@  Bass X0 : (25 November 2020 - 11:15 AM)

I'm surprised there's not been a Nemesis Primal given all the Nemesis Primes.

@  unluckiness : (23 November 2020 - 03:17 AM)

The real Drifts were the Windblades we made along the way

@  PlutoniumBoss : (23 November 2020 - 02:25 AM)

Drift-kun 2 Electric Boobylube

@  ▲ndrusi : (22 November 2020 - 11:36 PM)

I'm pretty sure Drift 2 was Empire of Stone.

@  Sabrblade : (22 November 2020 - 10:06 PM)

I thought people said Prime Wheeljack was Drift 2.

@  tigerhawk : (22 November 2020 - 03:51 PM)

Windblade was Drift.2.

@  TheMightyMol... : (22 November 2020 - 02:44 PM)

Drift with boobs.

@  Rycochet : (22 November 2020 - 11:50 AM)

I can't imagine a live action movie version of Windblade being all that different from Drift. Not my thing, but not the worst thing I've ever seen.

@  Bass X0 : (22 November 2020 - 09:54 AM)

The thought of Movie aesthetic Windblade makes me feel sick.

@  NotVeryKnightly : (22 November 2020 - 08:47 AM)

Though, the fact that Japanese people would pay for Windblade toys in the $30-40 range doesn't mean they'd pay however much MPs are going for now.

@  NotVeryKnightly : (22 November 2020 - 08:44 AM)

Back when I made a habit of checking Mandarake for pre-owned TFs, Windblade's toys went for surprisingly high prices. By which I mean not lower than the original price.

@  tigerhawk : (22 November 2020 - 08:15 AM)

If she's in the next movie you might get her.

@  unluckiness : (22 November 2020 - 07:58 AM)

Japan didn't get most of the IDW comics and are the target market for MP. They basically know windblade from a few crappy pack-in comics and a show that wasn't particularly popular there. Unless they start cranking out Cyberverse MPs, it's not very likely.

@  TheMightyMol... : (22 November 2020 - 04:24 AM)

Again, depends if she's popular enough in Japan to warrant it. Our view of which characters are popular is not the same as Takara's.

@  Bass X0 : (22 November 2020 - 01:53 AM)

So characters like Windblade then.

@  TheMightyMol... : (21 November 2020 - 07:19 PM)

They're complicated and expensive to design. By necessity, they're gonna be restricted to well-known characters who are more likely to sell.

@  Bass X0 : (21 November 2020 - 07:05 PM)

I don’t think Masterpiece toys should be restricted to only show characters.

@  Rycochet : (21 November 2020 - 03:09 PM)

If she wasn't in the Sunbow cartoon, Live Action movie or Beast Wars and can't be repainted from someone else, she's not getting an MP.

@  wonko the sane? : (21 November 2020 - 12:44 PM)

They'll make their money back if they include the metal thong...

@  TheMightyMol... : (21 November 2020 - 12:29 PM)

Is she popular enough in Japan that Takara would even try?

@  Paladin : (21 November 2020 - 11:23 AM)

depends. will that one also have a giant metal thong?

@  Bass X0 : (21 November 2020 - 11:10 AM)

Should there be a Masterpiece Windblade?

Have any of you had your cat's teeth cleaned?  I've heard of dogs having cleanings, but not cats.

Back in the late 80’s, I had the teeth of my siamese Samantha cleaned. This was on the recommendation of the vet and in the end was not a pleasant experience for any of us. Sammie was overweight and that wasn’t taken fully into account when she came out of the anesthesia. Poor thing was sluggish for a few days afterward, puked up bile the night we brought her home was so tired she from the ordeal that when she needed to go to the litter box she didn’t even try to get up and whizzed all over the chair she was sleeping on. While technology has come a considerable ways since then, I vowed to never put another cat through that again unless it was required.

(My mom can laugh about Sammie and her accident now. She says that the poor cat was dreaming of being in a peeing for distance contest and shooting to win!)

I'm trying to come to grips with my little one's mortality.  I'm hopeful she improves with the new medication her vet is putting her on, but I'm also realistic about what I can expect.  I never thought I could lose her like this when I assumed I would have another 5 to 10 years with her.  I hope I'm just over reacting and she returns to normal, but even then, normal for her is never going to be 10 more years.

If you don't mind me asking, what's her diagnosis?

One of my old cats had health issues for most of her life. Gave us at least 3 times when I was sure that was it. Currently we have one cats with Feline Aids, so we have to be extra vigilant with her.

6 months ago I took my 11 year old cat in for a routine visit and they discovered she had a heart murmur.  They recommended she see a specialist for a echocardiogram, and they diagnosed her with hypertrophic cardiomyopathy, which is a thickening of the left ventricle.  They weren't too concerned about it because her other vitals were normal, but they wanted to see her again for a followup in 9 months.  Fast forward to now--I've been noticing she's having trouble seeing, and while I wasn't really worried about it because she otherwise is behaving normally and getting around, I wanted to take her to the vet to see if it was something they could treat.  Turns out her blood pressure is sky high and her heart murmur is much worse.  She is now effectively blind due to damage from high blood pressure.  They prescribed bp medication (atenolol) and I made an appointment to see the cardiologist again.  The vet said her sight may return when her bp goes down, but she didn't seem to be very hopeful that the damage isn't permanent.  I feel terrible because I waited to make the vet appointment instead of taking her in the moment I realized something was off.  Her vision is completely gone now, and her activity level is low.  I think about her quality of life since she can no longer see to do normal kitty things.  And if there is damage to her eyes, I don't know what else might have been affected.  For the moment she is eating and drinking normally, but I'm still worried sick.  I couldn't get her in to see the cardiologist until next week, but for now I started her on the medication.  I can't stand the thought of losing her--she means everything to me.

This is Maggie. Less than a hour ago, she crossed the rainbow bridge.

 

Four years ago (about.), she had an acute kidney something something. Long story short: dehydration led to something in her kidneys hugging up, which made her stop eating and stop wanting to eat. The Irony was, the solution was eating. We spent three long weeks force feeding her four times a day to rebuild her weight, her strength, and it paid off. The day we stopped forcing her to eat, it was like a switch was flipped and our old maggie was back.

 

Five days ago, she refused her ham at lunch time. Four days ago, we realized she had lost some weight and had been throwing up bile. Three days ago, we made a vet appointment for next friday and began force feeding her again. This morning, she had pushed back up everything we had put into her stomach before bed last night after exactly one good day where she kept everything. We made an emergency vet visit and brought her in today. Well, the acute kidney something something had become chronic. On top of which the duct between kidneys and bladder was obstructed, and the kidney damage from last time had led to diabetes.

 

We could have gone the route of surgery and pills... but the quality of life wouldn't be there. She was just going to go through the whole not eating thing over and over and over again.

 

Goodbye maggie. I love you, I will always miss you.


Per Nick Nemesis's Suggestion: I hate everything.
