Jellystone. We're going to be plunged into a decade of poor animation. Fortunately we've been led by bad cartoon characters for years so we won't notice much difference.

@  Maximus Ambus : (01 July 2020 - 06:19 AM)

@  Nevermore : (01 July 2020 - 05:46 AM)

Thanks, dead person.

21 for me, but after numerous repetitions I got it down to 17 and a half.

@  -LittleAutob... : (30 June 2020 - 05:55 PM)

x-x when in vehicle mode we can travel much F A R T H E R-

@  wonko the sane? : (30 June 2020 - 05:52 PM)

Because despite the fact that we can travel around the world in the time it takes to get a good nights sleep and a couple of meals: people rarely wander more than 25 miles away from home for the duration of their lives.

@  Otaku : (30 June 2020 - 05:49 PM)

I don't know how many days that trip takes - especially while sightseeing - but explaining they're 3936 kilometers (2445 miles) apart gives an idea, paradoxically because it is too large to easily picture.

@  Otaku : (30 June 2020 - 05:44 PM)

Aye.  When I catch lay people discussing miles and not how long the trip takes, it is in an attempt to stress how far away something is... like NYC to LA.

@  ▲ndrusi : (30 June 2020 - 01:20 PM)

But I can imagine 45 *minutes* easily.

@  ▲ndrusi : (30 June 2020 - 01:20 PM)

I can imagine a mile, it's a distance I've run. I can't really imagine 45 miles.

@  ▲ndrusi : (30 June 2020 - 01:19 PM)

I think there's also an element of the thing where things that are much bigger than us all blur together.

@  Otaku : (30 June 2020 - 11:49 AM)

If you're not, then you're more concerned with how long it takes.  Actual distance doesn't tell you that very well.  Besides traffic and road conditions, you'll need to know what kind of driving (city/interstate/rural/etc.).

@  Otaku : (30 June 2020 - 11:47 AM)

Distance matters if you're being paid by the mile.

@  TM2-Megatron : (30 June 2020 - 11:44 AM)

Canadians are the same way, for the most part. If you're driving somewhere far, especially, it helps you plan out the day more than a distance in KM would.

@  Otaku : (30 June 2020 - 11:42 AM)

We use the time it takes to get someplace because that is what is relevant to us.

@  TheMightyMol... : (30 June 2020 - 10:55 AM)

Because even we can't figure out miles half the time.

@  Paladin : (30 June 2020 - 09:54 AM)

it's a big country with a lot of empty space. between our citizens' ears.

@  Bass X0 : (30 June 2020 - 09:52 AM)

Why do most Americans measure distance by hours of driving?

@  TM2-Megatron : (29 June 2020 - 07:26 PM)

And as a result the world's lone blu-ray release of the film, an Australian disc that came out 7 years ago, now goes for hundreds of dollars on eBay. Thanks Disney.

@  TM2-Megatron : (29 June 2020 - 06:21 PM)

Well, they censored Daryl Hannah's butt in Splash :rolleyes

@  Paladin : (29 June 2020 - 05:43 PM)

maybe New Mutants is too bad even for D+.

@  Steevy Maximus : (29 June 2020 - 05:00 PM)

X-Men films are coming to Disney+ next month. But will they censor Hugh Jackman's butt?

@  -LittleAutob... : (29 June 2020 - 12:44 PM)

I will grant you a recolored body, and recolored troops to command.

@  Cybersnark : (29 June 2020 - 09:47 AM)

I don't want to be reissued. This body sucks, I wanna be updated.

@  Nevermore : (29 June 2020 - 09:43 AM)

I definitely don't intend to be reissued. Nobody would buy me.

@  Bass X0 : (29 June 2020 - 08:31 AM)

will anybody else attempt to be reissued?

@  wonko the sane? : (29 June 2020 - 07:51 AM)

*Gasp* Decepticons re-writing history to serve their own needs?!?!

@  Nevermore : (29 June 2020 - 05:48 AM)

The whole point of the DJD is that they're fanatical Megatron fanboys (especially Tarn) to the point of having their own headcanon taking priority of the actual canon, simply speaking.

@  TheMightyMol... : (29 June 2020 - 04:01 AM)

They didn't know the war was over until later. And then they denied it anyway.

@  PlutoniumBoss : (28 June 2020 - 10:47 PM)

"He's comin' right for us!"

@  Telly : (28 June 2020 - 08:40 PM)

was that even still in effect once the war ended?

@  TheMightyMol... : (28 June 2020 - 06:51 PM)

According to Roberts, soldiers can ignore the order to spare Whirl if he's directly threatening them. But mostly the DJD were out of their heads on Nuke and not really caring much at the time.

@  Xaaron : (28 June 2020 - 06:41 PM)

Also, they were hopped up on goofballs at the time.

@  wonko the sane? : (28 June 2020 - 06:06 PM)

Cause it was whirl. He opened his (non-existant.) gob at the just the right time to piss somebody off. Or, so I assume.

@  Maximus Ambus : (28 June 2020 - 06:00 PM)

If Whirl was off limits why did the DJD kill him?

@  TM2-Megatron : (27 June 2020 - 05:57 PM)

That sounds about right. I actually didn't get into it until the IQ expansion came out (which saved me a bit of expense)

@  Otaku : (27 June 2020 - 05:55 PM)

Weird question (and sorry for so many shouts): did Overpower really release in August of '95?  I could have sworn I attempted to play it with a classmate who shouldn't have been a classmate by that point.

@  Otaku : (27 June 2020 - 05:52 PM)

So... I don't have all my cards still somewhere. XP I still play Pokémon via the PTCGO, and I've been doing Card of the Days over on Pojo (on and off) since 2013.

@  Otaku : (27 June 2020 - 05:51 PM)

For both financial, personal, and practical reasons, all my collectibles had to go about 10 years ago: action figures, comic books, card games, RPG books, video games.

@  TM2-Megatron : (27 June 2020 - 05:48 PM)

I've still got all my cards, somewhere; I had a pretty decent collection. Still have the Japanese Digimon CCG, too. Glad I never got into Magic; way too pricey

@  Otaku : (27 June 2020 - 05:36 PM)

Technically, Overpower was my first TCG... except I never, ever learned how to play it, or understood that booster packs contained different cards than the Starter Decks.

@  Otaku : (27 June 2020 - 05:35 PM)

Can't forget what you didn't know in the first place.

@  Patch : (27 June 2020 - 05:28 PM)

Ah yes, Overpower. Who could forget the expansion where they added a new stat and you had to re-collect your heroes all over again.

@  TheMightyMol... : (27 June 2020 - 04:20 PM)

Counterpoint, when was the last time you spent money on Overpower?

Oh!  But what I *DO* have is the exclusive Takara/Generations Selects/Botbots/Kreo crossover "Mother and Baby with Nest" set!  Very exclusive!  One of a kind!  Absolutely NOT some random thing I threw together with stuff on my desk...

Resting my brain from a Canvas tutorial to escape... here.

 

=============

 

There must be a badly Google Translated thing somewhere where the Seekers are "Murder Hornets"...

 

I always had reservations about this mold, but i figured it'd make for an interesting project. Before all this quarantine hoopla went down, these had gone on sale, so I tried the mold out. I found I really enjoyed the dynamic, expressive mold (great range of motion in the neck, for instance, despite the somewhat meh headsculpt). Loved that you could get a ton of poses out of it, and that even neutral poses had a great vibe to them (the Skywarp one below is one I really like). Plus I'd always wanted tetrajets, so I got a couple of Starscreams and a Thundercracker (in retrospect, two Thundercrackers would have worked better for base colors) to mess with.

 

Decided to start experimenting with something I'd always toyed with: reducing the greebling. Didn't have enough putty or patience (or, ffs, skill) to get rid of all of it, so I just filled in and flattened out some of the steged-out bits here and there, to leave some blank spaces to let the detailing breathe more. 

 

7sMN6ROm.jpg

 

My mediocre sculpting skills kept this from being as clean and flat as I'd hoped, but did the job. Mostly did the shoulders, lower torso, some on the hip pieces, knees, and forearms; went back and did some more on the shins, inner lower legs. Once I'd finished wearing myself out sculpting, since the parts were disassembled anyway I went and repainted everything -- both to cover up the sculpting putty's gray color, and to bring the Seekers more in line with shades I wanted. Oh, and to make a Skywarp, because I sure as hell wasn't going to bother with such an elusive exclusive whose color execution I wasn't super into. Starscream got a darker blue, Thundercracker got a much lighter blue (my mind's-eye image of his cartoon appearance has an almost sky blue hue for some reason, so went with that), and Skywarp got a proper black (not charcoal) and a nice bluish violet.

 

Sculpting-wise I left the vehicle shells alone, except for the Toyhax add-ons that gave the tetrajet mode the familiar peak fin (I'm saddened to remember they're not doing the Black Friday sale anymore, as that was the only way the Rainmaker set was an even remotely feasible deal for these customs). I was surprised to find that such a small addition made the vehicle mode more appealing to my eyes.

 

Found that even the robot modes looked a little nicer with the add-ons permanently glued on, as the tiny fin poking up in the back reminded me of the War Within Seeker design and the fin being just visible behind the head. Really didn't like the Siege null-rays (I've got them all here, and will trade for better) and just used the Classics ones in the meantime (the pegs are a somewhat loose fit; what was with Classics and diverging from the standard 5mm?).

 

0GLBPVd.jpgibhIvJ8.jpg14jNeKI.jpg

 

Finally, took a look at the vehicle mode shell. Decided to go the extra mile and paint them up to cover up the rubber-stamped battle damage, and bring the details and color distribution closer to the show.

jUPMNVz.jpg

 

I do wish my sculpting hadn't ended up so lumpy (ugh, Starscream's shins), but all told, not a bad experiment, and a nice way to get the tetrajet design into the collection.

I figured (I'm guessing execution doesn't back it up) that Wheeljack would work on things like weapons and things related to alt-modes, like lights, brakes, tracking system, or maybe other things, like jet packs/boosters, speakers, the giant shoulder-mounted microscope, etc., while Ratchet handles stuff more related to their biological functions-- spark chambers, fuel/energon lines, laser cores, voice modules, T-cogs, and so forth.
--LBD "Nytetrayn"
 

Yeah, in the cartoon at least, Ratchet and Hoist, and later First Aid, dealt more with the functionality of the Autobots themselves, while Wheeljack mostly made gadgets. The closest he ever came to working in mechabiology was when he built the Dinobots, and he had Ratchet's help with that.
Ratchet handles general biology, Wheeljack fills 'em with flamethrowers, missiles, seismic-stomps, fist-lasers, energy-gathering spines, flight, and energo-swords?

I love it! I just updated my own Armadacron a bit with the Toyhax stickers.  With those and his boots he'll be able to compete with the I-require-specialized-furniture-Cron.

Unicron was never the same after he stepped through the looking glass into Equestria and met the Hippie Ponies, that or Twilight Sparkle teleported inside of Unicron and managed to reprogram him with help from Pinkie Pie!

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.

Right? I was caught off guard by it when I saw it on Toyhax. Something that small improved the altmode so much for me, taking it the rest of the way. The nose and wing shapes are still off (and necessarily so), but this at least pulls the overall silhouette closer. Giving it the show's vehicle mode detailing (especially that rising stripe) really brought the new shape out. Fortunately they had a sale, and so I was able to get the Rainmaker bundle of 3 fins (and stickers I don't know if I'll really use) at a reasonable price.
