At least in animated he was more driven than just "loyal bootlick".

@  unluckiness : (27 September 2020 - 08:29 AM)

Oof, That's a huge downgrade

@  Maximus Ambus : (27 September 2020 - 02:35 AM)

After rewatching Animated Sound and Fury, in my head canon Titans Return Soundwave is that Soundwave.

@  wonko the sane? : (26 September 2020 - 04:09 PM)

On an unrelated note: I just got the BBTS email about kingdom pre-orders... and even the stuff I don't want I'm perfectly willing to get if it means I can have the rest of it.

@  wonko the sane? : (26 September 2020 - 04:08 PM)

It's digimon. So first one, then the other.

@  TheMightyMol... : (26 September 2020 - 12:53 PM)

50/50 odds, it's either a helicopter with limbs, or a scantily-clad human with heli blades on their back. If female, 90% odds on the second one.

@  NotVeryKnightly : (26 September 2020 - 12:39 PM)

I read that as "Helicoptermon" and wondered what kind of Digimon that was.

@  Bass X0 : (26 September 2020 - 12:35 PM)

Helicopter-mom, transform!

@  Maximus Ambus : (25 September 2020 - 11:58 PM)

Aw I scratched the hood of my 35th anniversary Bluestreak. Fortunately he's in robot mode a lot.

No decoration could improve the wall more than Knockout himself

@  TheMightyMol... : (25 September 2020 - 05:04 PM)

The wall could use some decorating, though. Maybe a nice shelf or a portrait.

@  -LittleAutob... : (25 September 2020 - 04:32 PM)

I'm laughing so hard XDDD

@  ▲ndrusi : (25 September 2020 - 02:31 PM)

@  -LittleAutob... : (25 September 2020 - 02:23 PM)

AND THEN KNOCKOUT WAS IN THE WALL AGAIN XDDD

@  Bass X0 : (25 September 2020 - 01:11 PM)

is an annoying stage in Super Mario World.

@  wonko the sane? : (24 September 2020 - 02:15 PM)

@  PlutoniumBoss : (24 September 2020 - 01:05 PM)

Beast Era, a blonde rat called Sunsqueaker.

@  TheMightyMol... : (24 September 2020 - 01:00 PM)

And then Knockout was in the wall again.

@  Sabrblade : (24 September 2020 - 12:53 PM)

Knockout: "Ooh, sorry, Lord Megatron. The correct word was... 'Decepticon'."

@  -LittleAutob... : (24 September 2020 - 11:15 AM)

Knockout: *while doing a crossword puzzle* Lord Megatron, whats a ten letter word for disappointment? | Megatron: ...... Starscream.

@  Maximus Ambus : (23 September 2020 - 01:20 PM)

@Bass X0 Shockwave did it.

@  TheMightyMol... : (23 September 2020 - 11:56 AM)

At least it's not Suntwerker.

@  wonko the sane? : (23 September 2020 - 11:19 AM)

I read that name as "suntweaker" the first time, and was terrified for a moment...

@  Bass X0 : (23 September 2020 - 03:41 AM)

Prowl did nothing wrong.

@  TheMightyMol... : (23 September 2020 - 01:50 AM)

Smashy, Stabby, Selfy, and Shieldy.

@  Xero Prime : (22 September 2020 - 08:52 PM)

RunFast, MuckyTrail, TrackBreaker and Sunstreaker

@  TheMightyMol... : (22 September 2020 - 06:16 AM)

Runamuck, Fasttrack, Sunstreaker, and Trailbreaker.

@  Nevermore : (22 September 2020 - 06:13 AM)

Cardboard and plastic.

@  Paladin : (22 September 2020 - 05:52 AM)

what's IN Wave 3, anyway?

@  Telly : (21 September 2020 - 06:35 PM)

i dont think theyre due for release until november. at least thats when target says ill get trailbreaker and sunstreaker. thought the wiki says theyre out in singapore

@  TheMightyMol... : (21 September 2020 - 06:01 PM)

Has wave 3 actually reached anywhere yet?

@  Maximus Ambus : (21 September 2020 - 04:40 PM)

A few more Bearimy's for Earthrise wave 3 to reach the UK

@  Spiritofeigh... : (20 September 2020 - 05:07 PM)

@  Spiritofeigh... : (20 September 2020 - 04:38 PM)

Hey, new to the boards

@  RichardT1977 : (20 September 2020 - 02:29 PM)

I had an idea for a Spiral Zone/Go-Busters crossover fanfic...

@  wonko the sane? : (19 September 2020 - 06:35 PM)

I loved what was there, and think it's pretty ripe for "renegades" style reboot.

@  Rycochet : (19 September 2020 - 03:13 PM)

It's a shame as I loved Spiral Zone, and the design from the Japanese Toyline of the same name are fantastic, I adore the monowheel motorbike.

@  Rycochet : (19 September 2020 - 03:12 PM)

Hasbro doesn't seem to have any interest in doing anything with the TV show, haven't greenlit any attempt to rerelease it, and there have been approaches, so I think it may be aother one of Tonka's legal carcrashes where everyone involved owns a piece and it's not really worth anyone sticking their neck out to claim ownership.

@  Steevy Maximus : (19 September 2020 - 01:47 PM)

I feel that homages and references would be a fun way to expand the GI Joe brand, and give a little love to lines that are unlikely to be acknowledged beyond such capacity.

@  Steevy Maximus : (19 September 2020 - 01:47 PM)

I was under the impression that Bandai was more the character design aspects, not story or characters.

@  Rycochet : (19 September 2020 - 12:55 PM)

Also isn't it in rights limbo, given how it's loosely based on concepts from a BanDai series much like GoBots?

@  Rycochet : (19 September 2020 - 12:52 PM)

We don't need a Spiral Zone reboot, in a decade or so we'll be living it.

@  wonko the sane? : (19 September 2020 - 12:49 PM)

Yeah, but it would fundamentally change the base premise of both gijoe and spiral zone. It's either not the world spanning threat it was, or the zone riders are backed up by a competent force. Either way, you compromise the context of both.

@  Steevy Maximus : (19 September 2020 - 12:19 PM)

Akin to what was done with Matt Tracker in 2008.

@  Steevy Maximus : (19 September 2020 - 12:18 PM)

Again, not a PURE transplant, but an integration of ideas and concepts into the world of GI Joe.

@  Steevy Maximus : (19 September 2020 - 12:18 PM)

@Wonko The Cobra Overlord, with help from Dr. Mindbender and Cesspool, develops machines capable of generating a mind-controlling fog. GI Joe stalwarts Flint, Airtight, Lifeline, and Psyche-Out are joined by Colonal Courage to infiltrate these zones and disable the machines. Figures would sport hostile environment suits (Eco warriors cross with Spiral Zone) and make new versions of the mono-wheel vehicles.

@  Maximus Ambus : (19 September 2020 - 09:39 AM)

Hasbroverse.2 with bought properties: Bravestarr, Ulysses 31, Galaxy Rangers, Shadow Raiders, Manta Force, Jayce and the Wheeled Warriors, Mighty Orbots, Jem and Bigfoot and the Muscle Machines. Seamless.

@  wonko the sane? : (19 September 2020 - 08:32 AM)

While acknoledging spiral zone would be pretty boss, I doubt they could actively integrate it into anything else: given the scale of the villains deeds.

@  Steevy Maximus : (19 September 2020 - 08:03 AM)

COPS, Spiral Zone, Shadow Strikers, Action Man, Centurions, MegaForce. They wouldn’t replicate the old lines, but simply acknowledging their existence would be nifty.

I replied to the email from June 6 asking what I should do. I wish I'd known sooner that it was a problem that I hadn't received an email... I didn't even plan to think about this until Wednesday.

Then what do those of us who don't know what time we're supposed to show up for package pick-up do?

If you're on a tour or the custom class, show up at 9:30 on Wednesday.  If not, show up at 6 on Thursday.

 

Ballroom B in the Convention Center for both days.

No response to my email (as expected), but TransfrmGod's post in the other BotCon thread is relevant:

 

 

 

 


Has anyone received the purported "Package Pick-up instructions (email) and event operational notes. That email will be quite long but...".  I admit, I'm getting a little uneasy here.  I know, I know "it's FunPub", "they don't understand technology", "the fax is in the mail", ha ha ha.

 

I always try to give them the benefit of the doubt, but this is cutting it close, even for my liking.

 

 

A couple weeks ago, for the package pickup. Try sending an email their way.

 

Well, I feel silly.

 

For anyone else in my situation, be aware that at the bottom of the message I quoted earlier is the line "Also, the schedule has been posted online for the weekend. If you lose your copy of the email or want to reprint your invoice, go to the registration link to log in and click My Account."

 

Sure enough, I can see and print out the email, which was allegedly sent on the 6th, the same day the message went on their page.  I still don't think it was sent to me, but at least it's accessible, and I don't have to hope that SOMEONE at their end sees my email before leaving for Pasadena.

 

 

I went to the Registration link on BotCon.com ( https://www.eventman...ogin.cfm?eid=34 ), logged in, clicked My Account, and there was a link to the email they never sent me. Turns out I'm in the 6PM group, so I guess it's good that I know now to show up early.

I'm getting nothing but a Cold Fusion error.

 

Cold Fusion is a thing that's still used by people, apparently.

Woo! Thanks, man!

 

If several people on this board alone didn't get the pickup info email it's likely to be a pretty widespread problem. Sure can't wait for all the chaos of people forgetting to bring obvious things like their ID or invoice.  :p

I think the concept of being educated and being able to educate is something that more people need more of in their lives.

No, we don't all know everything but we should spread and share that what we do know.

If I'm consistently misspelling a word, I would want and expect people to correct me as should I imagine all decent people who know the value of good literacy.

Its just arrogant laziness to know you're spelling a word incorrectly and not correct yourself or ignore the advice when people do tell you how to spell a word correctly.

I am with the 6pm group.  How early should I get there?  Last time, I was a couple hours.  It was fun standing in line and I got the at-show exclusives no problem, but I don't want to get their too early if it will make no difference.

I'm sorry that I didn't think of this sooner, but people looking to shop in the Pasadena area should be aware that a local ordinance here means that you won't get free plastic bags to carry your purchases in. Shoppers are encouraged to bring their own reusable bags (some stores even give you a small discount for doing so) or you can buy a paper bag (usually 10 cents each).

This kind of thing is becoming common in quite a few cities, but it will no doubt come as a surprise if you're not used to it.

We should realistically see the announcement of the custom class figure in two and a half hours (as soon as the class sees it, it will be tweeted, both officially and unofficially, if precedent is any clue).

 

We'll probably learn about the attendee-only exclusive tonight, when the custom class and "field trip" folks get through registration.

 

We will learn of the at-con souvenirs tomorrow night just before the club store opens.

 

Other stuff? Friday's a good bet.

Well it really depends on when Hasbro starts setting up the floor cases, as there usually are a few early things like store exclusives in there. Though I get the idea if you just went up and started taking pictures before you were supposed to Brian Savage would *bampf* right in front of you mid-snap and physically destroy your camera.

After some futzing around, I was able to determine that the password I use for the club store was too long and/or complex for the Botcon registration site.  I had to reset my password (temporarily) to something short and stupid in order to log in.  So hooray, once again, for Fun Pub web security.

For custom class attendees, I recall that you get your box set today, but do you get a separate time to get the other exclusives?

Maybe they've only sent them out for people taking the custom class.

 

Someone a few days ago said that if you log into your order page and click on "My Account", there is a copy of your pickup email and instructions there even if you never officially received it in an email.
