@  wonko the sane? : (03 April 2020 - 12:41 PM)

It arrived! Yay!

@  wonko the sane? : (03 April 2020 - 11:25 AM)

Given how the virus lasts about 3-4 days on metals and plastics, it's about the only way to go about getting stuff right now. I ordered a monitor mount for my desk and the delivery has been pushed back twice already.

@  Maximus Ambus : (03 April 2020 - 11:04 AM)

He ordered it online, says it was to keep those delivery boys in business. I did the same a week ago with some Transformers Studio Series figures off Kapow. Don't know if it's wise or not considering.

@  wonko the sane? : (03 April 2020 - 09:12 AM)

You'd be the first. Everyone else has either been frustrated cause the one they wanted was sold out (like during boxing week.) or rushing to replace something broken.

@  RYNO : (03 April 2020 - 08:53 AM)

I actually walked into a store the other day and just randomly decided to buy at 32inch TV. It was just a Vizio, and grabbed a Mounting Bracket for it. No duress. Just a spur of the moment wanted a TV for my master bedroom.

@  wonko the sane? : (03 April 2020 - 07:31 AM)

Conversely: I've never met a person who wasn't buying a TV under duress... so... yeah.

@  wonko the sane? : (03 April 2020 - 07:20 AM)

I think I've met maybe two people other than myself who count cables before buying a TV.

@  Tm_Silverclaw : (03 April 2020 - 05:33 AM)

Seriously.. HDMI splitters and switches are so bloody finicky, but most tvs don't have enough inputs.

@  Maximus Ambus : (03 April 2020 - 05:09 AM)

Just spent a hour trying to get my brothers new Samsung TV to read his Playstation and Blu Ray player only to find he was using a HDMI splitter.

@  Steevy Maximus : (02 April 2020 - 11:07 AM)

I could never master oral bullshittery. But in my day I was quite adept with the written word.

@  Sabrblade : (01 April 2020 - 08:58 PM)

This morning, for one of my online classes, I had to give a positive oral presentation about a play that I hated having to watch. I went into it completely unprepared and just winged it. My professor LOVED my presentation and thought it was excellent. She believed every word I said and honestly thought that I enjoyed that miserable play. Best April Fools ever!

@  Steevy Maximus : (30 March 2020 - 06:51 PM)

Not to be confused with Leader I

@  Steevy Maximus : (30 March 2020 - 06:50 PM)

He was Leader Uno

@  Steevy Maximus : (30 March 2020 - 06:50 PM)

He was the OTHER Leader 1

@  TheMightyMol... : (30 March 2020 - 06:29 PM)

Or Sideways.

@  PlutoniumBoss : (30 March 2020 - 05:26 PM)

On the other hand, this is Armada we're talking about. It could have actually been Metroplex.

@  PlutoniumBoss : (28 March 2020 - 11:08 PM)

Oh yeah, that was Fort Max. My bad.

@  ▲ndrusi : (28 March 2020 - 09:26 AM)

Pretty sure y'all were thinking of Fortress Maximus yesterday.

@  Steevy Maximus : (27 March 2020 - 08:18 PM)

Baja Blast is back at retail!

@  TheMightyMol... : (27 March 2020 - 03:47 PM)

Shame he wasn't around more. He seemed like such a jolly, happy soul.

@  PlutoniumBoss : (27 March 2020 - 02:16 PM)

No, he was definitely Metroplex. You could tell because he was in Metroplex's distinctive red and green coloration.

@  Paladin : (27 March 2020 - 02:11 PM)

that was Leader-1. or possibly Jolt. maybe Grindor...

@  PlutoniumBoss : (27 March 2020 - 01:57 PM)

Metroplex was in Armada, in a flashback. He was the same size as everybody else. I thought that was the joke.

@  Tm_Silverclaw : (27 March 2020 - 12:39 PM)

@Rodimus Supreme: Gah! You are right! How'd I get that mixed up? x.x;

@  TheMightyMol... : (27 March 2020 - 12:14 PM)

There is no Metroplex. Only Zuul.

@  Rodimus Supreme : (27 March 2020 - 11:13 AM)

@Tm_Silverclaw: There is no Armada Metroplex, he was in Cybertron.

@  Rodimus Supreme : (27 March 2020 - 11:12 AM)

And they'd be better off just retooling Metroplex and Fortress Maximus to be somewhat more accurate and changing/adding parts for interaction with later play gimmicks.

@  Rodimus Supreme : (27 March 2020 - 11:11 AM)

I honestly would prefer that for scale purposes.

@  Cyoti : (27 March 2020 - 11:07 AM)

They can redo all the CW combiners as Titan Class figures like Predaking/Devastator.

@  Dekafox : (27 March 2020 - 07:52 AM)

They could just redo Metroplex again too. Especially if it's going to be S3 based. They could also do another Primus to go with the coming Unicron.

@  OverDrive73 : (26 March 2020 - 10:56 PM)

If anyone is bored, or interested... I just added the last chapter to my fanfic comic in Allspark Pictures

@  Tm_Silverclaw : (26 March 2020 - 10:54 PM)

And no.. We could always get Titan Class Superion.

@  Tm_Silverclaw : (26 March 2020 - 10:53 PM)

We need Titan Class Transformers Armada Metroplex.

@  Telly : (26 March 2020 - 08:39 PM)

ill be surprised if scorpy isnt the last titan

@  PlutoniumBoss : (26 March 2020 - 05:57 PM)

Too bad a new character titan class figure is pretty much an impossibility.

@  PlutoniumBoss : (26 March 2020 - 05:56 PM)

I want a titan class, really good looking bucket wheel excavator. Like Cybertron Metroplex was supposed to be but didn't quite pull off.

@  wonko the sane? : (26 March 2020 - 03:32 PM)

I just taped up a shower curtain and took my first shower in three weeks. It was heavenly.

@  Rodimus Supreme : (26 March 2020 - 11:48 AM)

I would buy that...

How nice of the Decepticons to honor the Autobot Bumblebee with a statue of his likeness placed in their city.

 

So who would the Autobots honour in their city? Soundwave? Shockwave? Starscream?

 

They don't need to bother, Soundwave is already there. If only he'd stop pretending he's a lamppost.....

Let me go ahead an explain it, and I'll probably get some mad who didn't know, but it's time to face facts.  The reason factions cross regularly in picture comics is that they are taken in reality.  All the TV shows, comics, movies, etc that you've seen, there's a terrible secret.  They're all FAKE and SCRIPTED.  It's true.  WAY before the Transformers encountered Earth the war had been over for years, but Swindle realized that given human TV and merchandising habits, if they CLAIMED they were in a war that had lasted for millions of years, and marketed their unusually advanced shape changing technology as some really cool toys, they'd make a mint.  So they teamed up with Hasbro and worked it all out, professional wrestling style.  It's been going on ever since.  If you don't believe me, just check out the credits in any number of the TV shows, movies, or the like.  You'll notice that Optimus Prime and Megatron (often operating under the stage names of "Peter" and "Frank" to try to hide it) have been co-starring in a number of productions for YEARS.  This is despite supposedly killing each other in the 80's.  They hope no one notices or they try to explain it away as super-technology, but it's a bit of a giveaway. Some have been a bit better at keeping things under wraps, not a lot know that Godzilla and the T-Rex from Jurassic Park were Trypticon and Grimlock wearing rubber suits during the slump in the 90's, but it's true.

 

It only gets worse.  Shockwave and Perceptor shared a low rent apartment when they decided to take time off acting and finished their degrees.  The giant alien robots have been faking their animosity in front of the kids for YEARS in order to make a buck.  Bumblebee got that statue in honor of the sheer amount of dough he made them in merchandising.  Check out the Ninja Consultant comic on the previous page!  This is what they DO!

 

I'm sorry if I ruined it for everyone but sometimes you have to realize that what you see on TV might not be real.

That really is a beautiful color scheme.  That Sunstorm's a custom, isn't it?  The discussion on 'glow-in-the-dark' plastic in Transformers makes me wonder if Action Master Thundercracker or Sunstorm would be the best first test of it.  Meanwhile I'm still using a repurposed Golden Lagoon Starscream with some extra missiles and chromed MechTech weapons stuck to it.  Oh, well, maybe someday...

Yeah, all the gold plastic on those Golden Lagoon guys is nylon, which doesn't get GPS, and the rest is random color plastic (probably white) that's been chromed over.

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.

Whether it's subject to chrome chipping in the future, that's another story.

Chrome chipping comes from two layers of paint being used for the effect (silver undercoat with colored paint over it) as was done for Transmetals. The silver and gold Takara uses nowadays are usually just one layer of paint, which will rub off (see any old G1 toy) rather than chip off.
