Re: Anyone seen the Netflix show yet? (Minor spoilers)

After watching the clip Crystine linked to (thanks), Youtube showed me the the full (40 min) interview that clip is from. The whole thing's pretty interesting. Though, when Peter Cullen's talking about his imitator and says, "It's grand theft", I just thought: c'mon, man, grand theft Autobot is righ...

Re: POST YOUR NEWEST ACQUISITIONS!

Cyberverse Battle Call Trooper Wildwheel - Quite a nice figure. He seems skinnier than his toon model would suggest, but his toon model had a poncho, so who's to say for sure? The paint job is much better than on the Cyberverse Deluxes I've seen. Grimlock's got a flat gray, with unpainted shins. Wi...

Re: Covid 19 / everybody PANDEMIC

Massachusetts, Connecticut, New York, and New Jersey are requiring people coming from Rhode Island to quarantine for 14 days upon entry, due to our increasing covid numbers. Mass's restriction goes into effect tomorrow, so this afternoon, I took my last shopping trip into Mass for what may be a whil...

Re: Covid 19 / everybody PANDEMIC

Alberta's plan on returning to school is laughable (No classroom size limits, no budget for PPE for teachers, they expect elementary school students to stay masked and stay 2m away from each other on a playground) and so I'll be homeschooling again next year (losing my job turned out to be a good t...

Re: Desperate need of help for gift!

How often do you get a chance to see his collection? Look around to see what city formers he has, and make sure you're getting him a different one. They're almost toddler sized, so it's not like they'd be hard to spot. Just look for the biggest toys he has. Not knowing if he keeps them in city or ro...

Re: Covid 19 / everybody PANDEMIC

Here's the tweet about Gohmert's underling finding about Gohmert's diagnosis via politico. When I first read your statement about Gohmert informing his office, I thought it was refuting what I'd seen. Then, I noticed the bit about informing them in person and realized that's even worse. The first ca...

Re: [The video game thread]

So, I decided to try my new SNES controller. My SNES won't start. I tried different games, different controllers. Nothing. I think the last time I played it was around Labor Day (early Sept) when I got a new TV and was making sure I had everything hooked up correctly. Donkey Kong Country had lost al...

Re: Covid 19 / everybody PANDEMIC

Sorry to hear that, Clay. I'm pretty lucky here. Yesterday, at Walmart I think I only saw one guy with his mask on his chin, and at the grocery today, only 2. One person apologized when I called her out for not having her mask on, another snapped at me and told me to bother someone else. I'm too muc...

Re: POST YOUR NEWEST ACQUISITIONS!

Found Earthrise Snapdraon at Walmart while picking up jelly; haven't opened him, yet. I was just at this Walmart Saturday killing time while my tire was being fixed, and the TF display was pretty different. Lots of SS Deluxes have moved, and more Netflix Deluxes have come in. Edit: I opened Snapdrag...

Re: General LEGO discussion (inc. collectible minifigs)

I just bought and assembled 75891 Speed Stars Chevrolet Camaro ZL1 Race Car . Where the blocky hood meets the angled doors looks kind of awkward. The rear is curved, which helps it blend into the doors a bit better. I'm always a bit underwhelmed by Speed Stars since they don't use through axle const...

Re: Power Of The Primes Abominus

Nice review, but could use a few paragraph breaks. For the back, I take a narrow LEGO Technics piece that's L-shaped, put the 5-mm pegs on the extra hands through two of the holes, then balance that on Hun-Grr's tail. It fills out the shape nicely. I just have to remember not to lift him by this. I'...

I'd like to see 3P reviews. Do you have multiple figures of the same character so you could do a compare/contrast?

Re: Covid 19 / everybody PANDEMIC

I know this probably shouldn't be my main takeaway from the essay Clay linked to, but now I'm wondering if the phrase "American Idiot" exists outside of Green Day. Was it a phrase that existed before that album and I just wasn't aware of it, did the band invent a phrase that's entered the lexicon, o...

Re: [The video game thread]

Last month, a retro/used video game store opened up just down the road from me. They also have a few toys, but no TFs. I bought a SNES controller with a 10 foot cord, so now I can play my old games without dragging my system halfway across my living room. I don't know if a niche store opening during...

Skyquake - Where did you get Overload? The comic shop I got Scavenger at said they won't get him until November, and the only other place I've seen SS Leaders is a Target in NH. My work said anyone who travels more than 60 miles away is required to self quarantine for 14 days, so I won't be going th...

Re: OFFICIAL TRANSFORMERS TOYS NEWS

Denyer - Yeah, that's the one. I wish that'd made it to stores. Between Cliffjumper/Bee/Hubcap, Ironhide/Ratchet, and Arcee/Elita-1, it looks like removing a chunk of alt mode as an "accessory" may replace bot limbs under the jet wings as the most annoying category of Hastak just giving up. They cou...

Re: OFFICIAL TRANSFORMERS TOYS NEWS

I think I saw a prototype Arcee posted on this forum years ago, before the T30 came out. My memory may be wrong, but I recall it being much better than any Arcee released since. I think the key was letting Arcee's legs form the rear of the car, and not getting hung up on the curves not matching the ...

Re: POST YOUR NEWEST ACQUISITIONS!

Denyer, I think Heinrad is referring to this one , which is different than the two you're thinking of. I haven't acquired anything recently, but have opened the ones I mentioned before. I agree with ganon578 about SS Scrapper. The vehicle mode looks a bit rough, but the pinnned wheels and articulate...

Re: General LEGO discussion (inc. collectible minifigs)

Denyer, do those little ball joints in the ankles actually support that much weight, or does the design of the figure just not allow it to bend those joints any more? I made a LEGO flamethrower for Hotlink using one of TLK Leader Megatron's flame effects. I found enough smooth tiles to finish my red...
