I'll agree with you on that.

@  -Wildstrike- : (25 May 2020 - 03:39 PM)

*Figured -_-

@  -Wildstrike- : (25 May 2020 - 03:39 PM)

I fugured

@  Steevy Maximus : (25 May 2020 - 01:37 PM)

I'm actually sad Cyberverse won't get another season. 2 and 3 (of what I've seen) have REALLY nailed it in being fun little actions shows, like the Sunbow series.

@  Rycochet : (25 May 2020 - 01:00 PM)

Yes.

@  Maximus Ambus : (25 May 2020 - 12:52 PM)

I'm waiting for Animated season 4. Am I insane?

@  wonko the sane? : (25 May 2020 - 11:22 AM)

I'm waiting for the next season to show up on netflix.

@  Sabrblade : (25 May 2020 - 10:59 AM)

Many of us have already watched the rest of the Cyberverse episodes since the whole third season aired in the UK last September.

@  -Wildstrike- : (25 May 2020 - 10:18 AM)

*9th

@  -Wildstrike- : (25 May 2020 - 10:17 AM)

I just saw the 8th episode... omg

@  Bass X0 : (25 May 2020 - 01:28 AM)

Already seen it online.

@  -Wildstrike- : (24 May 2020 - 09:42 PM)

Who's excited for tomorrow? The only thing that makes Monday worth it is the Cyberverse episodes .-.

@  wonko the sane? : (24 May 2020 - 12:30 PM)

Welcome. I just came into that trick myself recently, so happy to share.

@  Nevermore : (24 May 2020 - 12:05 PM)

Thanks, wonko the sane? for the tip with the cloning. That helped a lot!

@  -Wildstrike- : (24 May 2020 - 12:02 PM)

Heheh.... yes... I don't think a sniper would be very good at making a vaccine... 0.0

@  Nevermore : (24 May 2020 - 11:48 AM)

All right! Cloning my old HHD to an SSD and then swapping out the drive was successful, it would appear. Finally.

@  Bass X0 : (24 May 2020 - 11:30 AM)

Scientist Perceptor is. Sniper Perceptor less so.

@  -Wildstrike- : (24 May 2020 - 10:51 AM)

Perceptor would be more responsible.

@  -Wildstrike- : (24 May 2020 - 10:48 AM)

Oof x~x

@  TheMightyMol... : (24 May 2020 - 10:45 AM)

He'd cure the virus, but he'd probably commit at least two crimes against nature and weaponize a third in the process.

@  -Wildstrike- : (24 May 2020 - 09:39 AM)

'Horrible consequences' would most likely happen with Brainstorm...

@  -Wildstrike- : (24 May 2020 - 08:16 AM)

Totally. And Percy's not even human. XD

@  TheMightyMol... : (24 May 2020 - 06:50 AM)

Can't do much worse than our current government, I say go for it.

@  Sabrblade : (23 May 2020 - 10:13 PM)

Little do we realize that the Perceptor in question is the Mini-Con combiner. :p

@  -Wildstrike- : (23 May 2020 - 10:11 PM)

He would!!!

@  -Wildstrike- : (23 May 2020 - 10:11 PM)

Horrible consequences? I... Doubt that would happen.

@  wonko the sane? : (23 May 2020 - 09:55 PM)

Even if he would come up with the answer by tomorrow.

@  wonko the sane? : (23 May 2020 - 09:54 PM)

I'd rather not deal with the horrible but unintended consequences of that.

@  -Wildstrike- : (23 May 2020 - 09:52 PM)

Lets let Perceptor make a vaccine for COVID-19. Who agrees with me :)

@  -Wildstrike- : (23 May 2020 - 08:43 PM)

I'll take your word for it. =D

@  TM2-Megatron : (23 May 2020 - 08:42 PM)

Although the TV edits of Robocop do contain some hilarity

@  TM2-Megatron : (23 May 2020 - 08:41 PM)

I can't think of any instance where sanitizing a film is a good thing.

@  -Wildstrike- : (23 May 2020 - 06:42 PM)

.... and thats a good thing? :doh

@  Steevy Maximus : (23 May 2020 - 06:39 PM)

I'm watching Predator on Starz! That means it has all the language and gore uncensored!

@  Sabrblade : (23 May 2020 - 04:23 PM)

*grabs popcorn*

@  -Wildstrike- : (23 May 2020 - 12:49 PM)

*watching everyone argue* O^O

@  fourteenwings : (23 May 2020 - 10:22 AM)

By that logic we might as well just get rid of the Shoutbox wholesale! I'd rather have like 3 or 4 things stuck for a week or so than one person dominating the whole thing (no offense Nevermore).

@  PlutoniumBoss : (23 May 2020 - 03:30 AM)

I would argue that "full of something one doesn't read" and "devoid of reading material" are functionally identical at the end-user level. :D

@  NotVeryKnightly : (22 May 2020 - 07:58 PM)

If it emptied, it would become empty.

@  PlutoniumBoss : (22 May 2020 - 07:53 PM)

It would be the same effect as if the shoutbox simply emptied once or twice a week.

@  NotVeryKnightly : (22 May 2020 - 07:27 PM)

I don't see how having walls of the same guy on top whenever I go to any page on this site is "refreshing".

@  PlutoniumBoss : (22 May 2020 - 06:10 PM)

I don't know, I find the occasional flushing of the box to be refreshing.

@  Telly : (22 May 2020 - 04:20 PM)

but its gets annoying seeing a wall of text from him that takes up most of the shoutbox

@  PlutoniumBoss : (22 May 2020 - 03:53 PM)

Eh, that's just Nevermore.

@  fourteenwings : (22 May 2020 - 12:11 AM)

@Nevermore: Good rule of thumb is if you feel like you need not just multiple statements but also multiple shouts to make a point, best just make a thread.

@  NotVeryKnightly : (21 May 2020 - 05:36 PM)

Dude, do you just, not know when to stop?

@  Nevermore : (21 May 2020 - 03:35 PM)

Instead of "I have only ten hours to get all my stuff from place A to place B", it's more like "I temporarily stored 90% of my stuff in easily accessible place C in my spare time, so now I have ten hours to get the remaining 10% of my stuff over to the new place before permanently saying goodbye to the old place".

@  NotVeryKnightly : (21 May 2020 - 03:33 PM)

At these point you two are just repeating what you already said.

@  Nevermore : (21 May 2020 - 03:32 PM)

Again using my "moving apartments" analogy. If you can store the stuff you don't immediately need for everyday life somewhere else, it reduces the critical time of permanently switching your primary base of residence over to the new place because there's less stuff to move when the time comes.

@  Nevermore : (21 May 2020 - 03:30 PM)

Well, my main point is that it will speed up the system migration so I have A) less system downtime because there are fewer files to transfer before the new system can be up and running and B) it reduces the risk of something going wrong during the system migration.

Fanstoys managed to make Blurr stupidly complicated with transformation joints that explode if moved normally.

The only 3rd party figure I've ever gotten was the IDW(1) Rodimus from Mastermind Creations for when I put together a Lost Light display. Nothing really seemed close enough other than maybe Cloud Rodimus and it was still too far off for my taste. (I also didn't want to pay that much for yet another of that mold.) My only problem left with that grouping now is getting a fitting Cyclonus and Whirl, since the Universe Cyclonus is earmarked for the 86 movie crew, and the most recent Gen Whirl is earmarked for the Wreckers. Also waiting to see if we get a better Nautica than the one they built from Blurr.

There are a looooot of 3P figures I'd have if I could justify to myself actually buying them. Possibly more than official figures. = .


Shouldn't gravity be doing something?
 
Of course there's a figure of Rodimus as some kind of animal girl. Why would I be surprised by this?

I only pay attention to Fanstoys for a good laugh. Otherwise I'm still watching NewAge and to a lesser extent Magic Square. I'll pay attention to Transform Element if they ever release anything new again.

 

The rest can just go away and I wouldn't miss them.

Given how much Japan loves trains, I would expect the traininess of a new Raiden to be high. It seems pretty pointless if they don't get the These Are Decent Trains part right. The better Shinkalion toys are Kind Of Okay, but not good enough to be in a Transformers line without causing offence.

But certainly, they could do bloody anything

Shinkalion's target demographic is probably closer to the same age as Rescue Bots, hence the lousy articulation.

Shinkalion toys are stocked in the regular boys section at TRU, not the younger kids section. I was there last week.

They were also cheaper at another store, but I still didn't really feel they were worth around $35-$40.

I think sometimes we forget how spoiled we are. Whether official or third party, compare Transformers' standards to what fans of any other transforming robot line put up with. We're frequently unimpressed by toys that in any other line would be awe inspiring.

When I was collecting the Time Bokan 24 toys I realized that. For the price of a Leader I got a stumpy little beetle robo who could move his shoulders and bend his elbows, wrapped around a light and sound box.

I haven't really been impressed with another transforming robot line since Webdiver. I'd still go for a decently priced Golemon or Wyverion.

at least sometimes you do have options if you want something with more articulation

 

see also: literally every year the sentai fandom unanimously agrees that the candy toy minipla figures of the robots are better toys than the full-size DX toy

 

(yeah i know sentai isn't really transforming robots but whatever)

Reideen has one of the simplest transformations of all time and Bandai still finds ways to make it a Legoformer, and their fans still say "Oh well it is a hard design."

 

e07.png No. No it is not. Hasbro could design one between coffee breaks. Even the Titanium guys probably could have done it.

A part of me suspects that Bandai incorporates some parts-forming into every transforming SOC because they think it makes the figures feel more like collector items instead of toys aimed at kids, it's their equivalent of super articulated MP-style hands.

Quite frankly, outside of transformers, the standards for transforming robot toys are set by sentai, and those toys haven't improved in any way since ever. Heck, they've arguably gotten worse in some cases. 

Fanstoys managed to make Blurr stupidly complicated with transformation joints that explode if moved normally.

 

Blurr.

Don't forget making his dark blue purple.
