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.

"Let's make a bargain, shall we? You ask Primus for help and I'll stop the moment He shows up."

@  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.

@  Echowarrior : (06 May 2021 - 08:56 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.

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.

@  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)


@  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.

CORVUS: considering that reply, I'm pretty sure this was just another instance of Bass posting poorly-defined drivel as if it were profound.

@  TheMightyMol... : (27 April 2021 - 04:24 PM)

Given the last year and a half or so, is it any surprise?

@  Bass X0 : (27 April 2021 - 04:12 PM)

People are snapping already it seems.

@  Kaon : (27 April 2021 - 12:15 PM)

I like the Shattered Glass Megatron's alt mode

@  CORVUS : (26 April 2021 - 07:30 PM)

I'd like to know what society he's talking about, and what qualifies as "nothing", TBH.

@  NotVeryKnightly : (26 April 2021 - 05:09 PM)

I don't see the point in such a poorly defined "everyone is terrible" statement. He's not complaining about any specific people or specific problems.

@  Tm_Silverclaw : (26 April 2021 - 05:06 PM)

I do not see anything about Bass's comment that felt a need for you to attack him.

@  NotVeryKnightly : (26 April 2021 - 04:35 PM)

Bass: does that "everyone" include yourself or are you just trying to act like you're better than everybody without actually proving anything?

@  wonko the sane? : (26 April 2021 - 04:10 PM)

Mostly it's "oh, don't say that right now" and "better learn when to duck".

@  Bass X0 : (26 April 2021 - 04:05 PM)

There's something to be said about society when everyones just an inch away from snapping over nothing.

@  Steevy Maximus : (26 April 2021 - 02:17 PM)

WalMart is a cruel mistress. Today she runneth over...tommorrow, she'll be barren as a desert.

@  -LittleAutob... : (26 April 2021 - 12:21 PM)

I love Wal-mart now- They have way more Transformers figures than Target- last night I came home with a WFC Authentic Wheeljack even though I was torn between wanting TFP Arcee and TF: The Movie Blurr, two figures I have never ever seen before-

South Park: The Stick of Truth. Had a weekend marathon straight to the end and ended up missing some of the collectables. I've started a second playthrough with a different setup (first time was mage, going with warrior now) and I'm gonna be more careful this time.


Final Fantasy XIV. I've been on board since 1.0's beta years ago. I've enjoyed it quite a bit since the redesign, but I've been bored with it recently. I'm just not social enough to enjoy the party-up-with-random-people endgame content, so I've run out of things to do.


Professor Layton and the Azran Legacy. I'm a fan of the series, so of course I'm enjoying this one. I'm just a few chapters in so far. I got it around the same time as South Park, so I haven't had a good chance to play it yet.

Playing a lot of PvZ Garden Warfare on Xbox One. It's a lot of fun.

I'm in the Project Spark beta, but my interest quickly died off when I saw all the micro transactions and having to pay for 'spark time' to play user created games that feature content you haven't paid for.

Finished South Park awhile ago, missed out on some of the collectibles mostly due to the auto save feature and not feeling like replayinfg the whole thing. Will play again at some point as another class.

Finished Layton & Azran Legacy.

Played the free cases of Layton Brothers-its good for a mobile game, but feels like it's trying too hard to be Phoenix. May spend a few bucks for the extra cases at some point.

Eagerly awaiting Layton vs Ace Attorney, though it seems like in the US it will be e-shop only?? Bah.

A bit of South Park and a LOT of TItanfall. This game is addictive! I've never played a shooter where I actually cared about leveling up. But then again the last shooter I actually cared about was the Halo 3 Beta...

Picked up GTAIV on sale from Steam... and boy am I glad I got it for less than $8.  Screen shots do not communicate just how... strangely the game plays.  From what appears to be wonky procedural animation to cars that handle like madness incarnate it's a really awkward game. Perhaps it's just a problem of playing on PC or just being too used to Saints Row, but I really liked San Andreas, but this is just... wow.

Ah, good to know.  'cause Steam shows a Metacritic score of 90/100 and the reviews on the store page are praising like mad.  Just goes to show: Don't always trust the popular opinion.  


But wow, even for a crap game the way it's crap is just amazing.  It's like Sonic 2006, someone had to sign off on this.  They had to look at those jangly, clunky, near-Muppet-like animations and say "Yeah, that's what we're going for!" and then watch cars bounce into the air over small dips in the road and say "Yes, this is realistic and not at all unplayable."  Not to mention the whole DRM nonsense.


If I had payed the full price for this game, I would be rightfully angry.  At just under $8, I just kind of find it amusing, like an episode of MST3K that you can play.  This is the Red Zone Cuba of video games.

Back to Age of Wonders II - The Wizard's Throne. Man, what a hard and sometimes frustrating game (the AI can be a real troll sometimes) but it's a lot of fun too. Just finished the last Fire sphere campaign and now moving on to Water (sigh... Halflings... this will be tough). 


I am preparing for AoW III this way, and also because, well, my video card kinda died weeks ago. As I wanted to buy a new PC in the near future anyway, I decided not to invest in a new card for about 40-50$, which would be obsolete for my new PC - sadly, my friend who will get the new PC for me (he works in a PC hardware retail store) has generally been sick in the last few weeks, meaning things are always getting delayed ...

I started playing Deathspank. I think that I am getting close to the end of it, and its been a pretty awesome game so far. It has some really annoying parts, but overall, it is definitely a fun little action rpg to play.

For me it quickly lost its charm - yes, the quests and character interactions are hilarious, but the combat is repetitive and after a while you will stop finding any new weapons. I never tried out the sequel for this reason.

I just dove into Aliens: Colinal Marines. I picked up a new xbox 360 copy for $5.99, and I thought, why not? So far, I am three missions in, and I am actually enjoying myself. The story is a bit of a mess so far, and the game isn't that difficult on the highest setting, but I am enjoying the weapon customization, and the music is very well done. If you get a chance, pick this up. Gamestop has it for $6 "new", and for that price, its definitely worth it.

Still on fallen earth: and I've lost my fear of PVP zones and progress towns. I needed a resource for research, and found it in ample supply around a progress town called "Hollister" which was also completely abandoned by other players.


And even if there are other folk running around... no one seriously shoots at travelers. And even if they do; I'll just wake up in the pod in the safe zone. I can log, do something else for a while and come back to it later.


Edit: Yay! My primary now has the resources to commit to the advanced motorcycle research. I just need to wait for a day and a half for the research to be completed! Christ, it better be worth it.
