Re: [The video game thread]

While I still haven't gotten the one I really want to get(Macross Delta. Not because it's horribly expensive, but because only half the game is on the cart. The rest of it is DLC. It's free, but I don't know if a US PSN account will be able to download Japanese PSN DLC). Not sure how helpful this i...

Re: Covid 19 / everybody PANDEMIC

Kit-Kats are my preferred chocolately treat. I have to give myself primary consideration as I rarely have trick-or-treaters and have to eat the candy all myself. That should be the primary litmus test for Halloween candy in general and this year especially: Is it something that'll get eaten if ther...

Re: [The video game thread]

Speaking of good, old games, I'm currently playing Skyrim for the first time ever. Good game once I found the factions that weren't just straight up asking me to participate in race wars. Astoundingly, I have yet to play Skyrim. Got a copy for PS4 around here, haven't gotten around to it. Hell, I'm...

Re: POST YOUR NEWEST ACQUISITIONS!

Earthrise Doubledealer Snagged one this morning out of a mix of surprise at seeing one and having a certain affinity for the triplechanging weirdo. He is very much just a modern take on the original, minus the powermaster gimmick. Robot mode has got the usual amount of posability one has come to ex...

Then, Speaker Pelosi said that's a bad idea, because Trump's morbidly obese, which increases risks of that drug. ...good? She probably shouldn't have warned him, though. I think Pelosi is being a bit brilliant here. Given Trump's nature and the way he tends to react to things, he'll probably A) Ins...

Re: Covid 19 / everybody PANDEMIC

Perhaps the most annoying thing about these restrictions is going to the supermarket, finding the aisle I want to go down is one-way the wrong way, going through the next aisle over so I can get to the right end of my desired aisle, and running into someone going the wrong way down that aisle.

Omega came out towards the end of last year. My plan was to get him then, but things went kind of wahooni-shaped.
Really? Hmmm... shows how close I've been paying attention to release schedules. Damn

I didn't know he was out yet. He's one of the few on my 'to get' list as soon as I can reasonably spare that money. Don't think I have the reasonable space for him but that hasn't stopped my purchases before

Re: POST YOUR NEWEST ACQUISITIONS!

As my first TF purchase in months, I got myself a Siege Jetfire. Because they finally gave us a proper damn Skyfire. And I'd say they nailed it. Suitably big, looks like the old animation model in both modes, got the changing faction symbol gimmick. Only transformed it back and forth once so far but...

Smash Bros Ultimate is great. If you've not played Breath of the Wild yet you gotta get that game. I'd recommend Mario and Pokemon also. I'm not touching Pokemon. I managed to avoid falling into that pit when I was younger, gonna continue trying to avoid it now. I keep hearing good things about Bot...

Re: [The video game thread]

So, thanks to that stimulus thing and lucky timing on checking the Best Buy website, I snagged myself a Switch. Picked up Super Smash Bros. Ultimate and Marvel Ultimate Alliance 3 so far, haven't had much time to put into them yet, given that I've been busy with various things this past week.

Re: A question about Kup in the All Hail Megatron Coda.

That was one of those plot seeds that was planted but not utilized for years. Think it finally first got used in that random zombie crossover thing IDW did involving several of their comics and then later came up in Sins of the Wreckers

Well, Trump DOES continue to have rallies after having shaken hands with multiple people exposed to the virus (and at least one confirmed case). And his supporters do skew to the ridiculously old... :glance: Yeah, I'd assume he's already been confirmed infected, and will either disappear for a whil...

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

In the interest of curiosity being certainly lethal to felines; would people still here be interested in trying to raise TF Archive from the ashes? Or is it generally accepted that the amount of dust laying on this place now really defines it properly as an Archive and should be left as such? Askin...

Digging the look of the Allicon. Didn't realize it was the things from Quintessa, kept thinking it was the Alligaticon from City of Steel. Need to see the other mode of both it and the Quintesson but thus far I'm interested. Not liking the concept of the 6 inch Joes. I get why they're doing it, sinc...

Re: IT'S TIME FOR A NEW YOUTUBE THREAD

Yeah, the Spree is good stuff. Saw them in concert a few years ago when they first appeared at RetroCon near Philadelphia. Seems they've made that a yearly thing. Even pledged their Kickstarter to get a signed copy of the CD. And for another bit of music, here's an 80s remix of Linkin Park's Numb. I...

Have to say I'm a bit disappointed that we're getting Arcee before Galvatron. Yeah, I know. All the anecdotes of villians not selling as well in Japan, Arcee being one of the rare female characters, easy repaint into a Paradron Medic to get extra use from the mold, maybe someone in charge of release...

Star Wars: Thrawn: Treason - Written by Timothy Zahn. This is the third in the new canon Thrawn trilogy. Oooh, this is something I'm excited for.

Re: Who's buying all these Funko Pops?

Not particularly a fan of the style but since they make so many of the things, they end up hitting characters that don't seem to get a lot of merch or versions of characters that don't get much merch.

So between that and being able to snag certain ones cheap for varying reasons, I own maybe 10.
