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.

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?

You’re traveling down a rabbit hole I dare not follow

@  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)

Nice

@  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.

@  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.

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.

@  Sabrblade : (21 April 2021 - 11:55 PM)

Glenn Morshower would agree. He goes to auditions with his shoes full of syrup.

@  wonko the sane? : (21 April 2021 - 04:28 PM)

Please, maple syrup can only improve alot of content.

@  Donocropolis : (21 April 2021 - 03:33 PM)

Well, not release it into Canada, no. You'd just get maple syrup all over it.

@  TM2-Megatron : (21 April 2021 - 03:21 PM)

what bothers me most about Canadian rights is that, oftentimes, the rights holders for certain content don't even seem to have any interest in releasing it

@  NotVeryKnightly : (21 April 2021 - 10:46 AM)

It'd be mostly the same even in a world with global copyright law, since even the shortest terms are very long.

@  wonko the sane? : (21 April 2021 - 10:39 AM)

You got me, I just want to watch cartoons without having to pirate them for once.

This is one occasion where I'd happily support those Chinese sellers who mysteriously can get their hands on separate toys well before they appear in stores... 'Cause that Ratbat is pure LOVE, but I really don't need Soundblaster. Makes me wish Hasbro would have waited with their MP Soundwave release so that Ratbat could have been included.

Like many others, I'm sure, I didn't really want $150 worth of MP Soundblaster.  Just Ratbat.  Every reminder of this puts a knot in my stomach.  They look really nice, but it is bothersome.

 

I doubt there are many that want Soundblaster and not Ratbat.  I contemplate taking Ratbat out and trying to sell everything else, but I doubt I can find a buyer except at a really low price.

 

I'm going to go see if I can find pics of G1 Twincast with MP Soundwave to see how they scale.

 

Edit - The answer is "Pretty Well".  Though I wouldn't say they look really great together, Twincast with his legs pushed together (which is correct, right?) is pretty well the same height as your MP Soundblaster.

I actually really like Soundwave as well as Ratbat...But I'm not going to pay $150 for the two of them after spending $100 to get Hasbro's Soundwave and 5 cassettes.

Soundblaster continues to look cooler than Soundwave.

 

I'm really glad they're giving him both a purple chest and a red chest.

If you have the right sources the pair can be bought for around $120 - $130 to the USA.  Which is around what Hasbro's Soundwave was.

I didn't pay that for the Hasbro version ;)

 

And you're still getting less than what the Hasbro version gave you at that price.

 

Ratbat is really cool. And Soundblaster looks nice but...I still can't do it.

I'm wondering if Ratbat will end up selling loose for almost as much as the entire set does.

 

I could easily see him going for $100 just so people don't have to deal with unloading a Soundblaster.

Depends if you count Ratbat's awesomeness is equal to 5 additional Cassettes over 3 unique toolings or not.  :D

 

I might be willing to take that bet.  ;)

I have G1 Soundwave (technically 2), I bought the book style Soundblaster reissue, and I feel fine about it.  Outside of a very few specific characters, I tend not to double (or triple) dip on molds; but at this price scale I just could never justify it.  Especially in a case like this where I'm paying more for less.

 

I have Brave Max, and I want to get the reissue Fort Max, but I'm having trouble convincing myself that it's worth it.  For the amount of money I'd pay for it I could get a few figures that I need.  The only consolation would be that it comes with all the stuff that Brave Max lacks.

 

This is where MP Soundblaster lays.  He's super cool, but I only want Ratbat, and he's not worth $150, no matter how sexy he his!

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 so wish I could swap the US eyes with Soundblaster's.

 

That way Soundwave would have red and Soundblaster yellow.

 

Alas Hasbro's Soundwave head is apparently impossible to open :(

Well the Reprolabels Soundwave set does have a Red Visor sticker.

Granted, that isn't what you're talking about, but I own Japanese Soundwave & think the eye visor a bit too dark at times (depending on how the light hits it). The Reprolabels set doesn't seem to have that problem. (Of course, they might only show us the good pictures.)

I hope that Takara eventually comes around & Ratbat on his own. Maybe packaged with a new Autoscout, or even Laserbeak (since people occasionally have broken theirs). Although, if he does get the KO treatment, I suspect my resolve might break.

I'm hoping Takara or Hasbro makes Ratbat available on his own too, but I'd rather they didn't pair him with a cassette we already have.  I don't want to buy something I already have.

 

Maybe recolour the Rumble/Frenzy mold into Enemy and put him in a 2 pack with Ratbat.
