Re: Remembering that our old toys actually exist!

I pulled out all my modern Targetmasters today after making what wound up being partners for Spinister and Scourge. https://i.imgur.com/8JJZVoe.jpg I love almost all these guys, but most of them are fairly new. The older three, though, definitely deserve another look! Universe Cyclonus is getting a ...

Re: Custom Siege Pinpointer (or: babby's first dye job) [and other random Targetmasters]

Maybe Catgut? Maybe take one apart and spraypaint a Steeljaw? It's mostly black, which makes it hard to do much with dyes...can only change the head and tail that way, really. Turns out I can't even do that...boiled the bugger in dye for an hour and nothing happened at all. Oh well. Might be time t...

Re: POST YOUR NEWEST ACQUISITIONS!

I think their ideal customer would have bought the previous Titans too! But I get what you mean. I just like the design, and don't care enough about Omega as a character to be bothered by him being massively out of scale (and he definitely is, to me, since I mostly remember him from Marvel). Ironica...

Re: POST YOUR NEWEST ACQUISITIONS!

Siege Omega Supreme They finally got me! I thought T30 Metroplex was ugly. Fortress Maximus transformed into Fortress Maximus taking a nap and had none of the accessories that made the original look cool. Trypticon, admittedly, was awesome -- but so is the original and I'm way too attached to that ...

This was an amazing undertaking, dalek! You should feel proud for having finished it.

How many printed volumes does this translate to?

Exhaust and Greasepit are coming as Selects releases. https://news.tfw2005.com/2020/06/25/generations-selects-exhaust-and-greasepit-first-look-413410 I really like the colours on Greasepit! I'll have to try and track him down. Exhaust is nice but I was more hoping we'd get Slicer this time around. S...

Re: Covid 19 / everybody PANDEMIC

I don't know how pubs, theatres, cinemas and music venues are going to function. There's talk of patrols in pubs and using apps to order, which makes it all sound like it's going to be a rather joyless affair. It's important to be safe, but in these sorts of social environments, I think it's rather...

Re: Power Of The Primes Sinnertwin

My Sinnertwin has been a leg at the back of a shelf for the last year or so, but I seem to recall that he uses plastic with the same sort of weird feel to it as Siege Apeface. I remember being really disappointed with how he felt in hand, because Sinnertwin is definitely my favourite Terrorcon desig...

Re: X-Men is getting a bit meta (recent-ish comic spoilers)

Hickman's Fantastic Four was absolutely amazing. It was the first modern take on the team I've seen whose author actually seemed to LIKE the F4 and understand what made the 60s and 70s books so popular. It was nice to see some F4 stories finally that embraced the "family" aspect of the team instead ...

I've edited it out of your post. Relying on people with bad intentions to be thick isn't going to help someone being stalked. You're better off messaging Warcry. No need.

Re: So I'm pretty much out of the fandom at this point

that's why Twitter fundamentally doesn't work -- it's two or three hundred million people in a room together left to beat the shit out of each other to generate ad revenue for the site owners. Yeah, social media in general is just too big. Too many people all together in one place, and even if only...

Re: Remembering that our old toys actually exist!

I loved the combiners, but they were definitely tough to put together when I was younger. I only had three (secondhand) Constructicons, two Technobots and three Terrorcons when I was really little. Of course, that didn't stop me from having Abominus shamble around with Lightspeed, Afterburner or Sca...

Re: OFFICIAL TRANSFORMERS TOYS NEWS

At a glance, I can't see anything that's changed on that Soundwave but the paintjob. Hubcap is one of my favourite random nobodies! Hopefully he's easy to get and not too expensive, because I'm definitely not paying OVER Deluxe price for something that size, favourite or not. Thrust looks okay but S...

Hey Clogs! I hope life is less stressful for you than it was the last time we talked. I honestly don't think you've missed that much, Transformers-wise. The last few years seem to have mostly consisted of Hasbro steering the franchise into being a full-blown nostalgia property. So while there's been...

Re: How popular are Licorice Allsorts?

Licorice Allsorts Yuck. My father absolutely loved them and I absolutely cannot fathom why. I don't like black licorice to begin with, but the junk they do to these candies only seems to make it less appealing. I'd say this is a good front-runner for least favourite, for me.

That's a false equivalence though considering it's the right wing nutjobs who've used this to harass, bully, dox and threaten numerous women in (and in several cases out of) the fandom.
