I so envy that easy ability to be just a cool human bean.
Of course you do. You're a dinosaur, remember? :p

Re: Thank you

A few that stand out are the Classics Grimlock that Clay picked up for me (and if memory serves I think he was US intermediary on the Prehistory Animal bronze Grimlock I've got), I am indeed! Whatever was the story with it, re: rarity? Most of the online repositories of TF info concentrate solely o...

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

Or to put it another way; opinions are like arseholes. Everyone's got one. Unless you haven't, in which case, how do you poop? My favorite variant is, "opinions are like assholes. Everyone has one, and they need to be evaluated by an expert if they're causing you problems, and an individual should ...

Re: Thank you

TFArchive has been my manually-set homepage for something like fifteen or sixteen years now. I don't see that changing. Will Tom ever get his computer fixed? OH, I still have the Superlink Grand Convoy I got from you, too! I had just dug him out the other day after learning what dekotora is. :swirly:

I have no idea what y'all are talking about so I'll go look up what a Windblade kit is. ... That's an officially licensed product? Huh. I mean, it's not out of the scope weird, fetishistic fan art, but as an actual figure for commercial sale... yeesh. Immediate thought is to compare it to Kiss Playe...

Re: Covid 19 / everybody PANDEMIC

All yall actually still on about that pandemic thing? Here in the USA, we've got the president having protesters shot with rubber bullets and gassed to clear them out of the way so that he can have a photo op with an upside-down bible. After they threw the priest out of the church, of course.

Re: Covid 19 / everybody PANDEMIC

And if it still goes wrong it's all those other people's fault for not praying hard enough. As Bill Hicks put it, "Hitler had the right idea, he was just an underachiever." Hmm. I understand Hicks' point (both the joke and the frustration behind it, the release of which makes it funny), but I can't...

Re: Remembering that our old toys actually exist!

(re: Warcry's pic) I have all those! :wave: Tarantulas is actually my favorite of the bunch. Not just because he's totally metal, but also because at some point I realized that his relative transformation scheme is the same as Starscream's, and I like that quite irrationally. I too have Armada Preda...

Re: Covid 19 / everybody PANDEMIC

Clay, I didn't see anything in your link about the effigy being burned. Plus, it said the effigy was hung outside the Capitol after protesters walked there from the governor's mansion. So, it's not as bad as you thought. It's just really, really bad. Thank you, I needed that chuckle. As for you, ho...

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

I know it seems silly, because it’s a message board for Hasbro’s ‘The Transformers’, but this website, and all of you on it, formed an important part of who I am, so thank you. I mean, two members from here got married and had a kid, so you're still on the low end of the "this forum changed my life...

Re: POST YOUR NEWEST ACQUISITIONS!

He mentioned flip-out wings, so I'm assuming car? It is the car version, yes. I've been after one for a while now, so I'm glad to have him again. It's quite hard picking up Unicron Trilogy stuff over here now. Even at TFNation, the bins dealers had were largely full of Movie-era stuff and not much ...

Re: Covid 19 / everybody PANDEMIC

Meanwhile, in Kentucky, a gun-toting, right wing mob protested stay-at-home orders issued by the governor by burning him in effigy, right outside his house, because you can do that kind of thing without any consequences if you're white.

Re: Remembering that our old toys actually exist!

Also, how's imagur as a file host? I think my photobucket account is still active, but the website is slow to the point of being unusable. It depends on the device you're uploading from, I think. I find imgur pretty good on a computer, but it's annoying to use on a tablet or phone. Also, you need t...

Cybertron Hot Shot Hooray! Finally managed to pick up a replacement for the one I sold off. WHat a cracking toy this is. It's massive for a Deluxe, the plastics are nice and weighty. He has a silly gimmick (flip out wings! big whoop) and lovely colours. One of the finest Deluxe Transformers ever ev...

Oh heck! Like you, I've always expected to lose Mindwipe due to the soft rubber going. I wonder if there's a lot of stress on the joint because of the mismatched plastics? It seemed to be the rubber part gripping the pin too tightly and putting the hard plastic part in torsion that it couldn't take...

And this is someone that Clay (I think that's who I got it from?) should remember! Yep, I remember him! He sat in a tub in the closet for about a decade because I didn't think anyone wanted it since it wasn't the show-colors. Then you mentioned that you did, and traded the power core dinobots to me...

Re: Remembering that our old toys actually exist!

All of them. All the old toys. Being cooped up in the house, I've adopted a strategy of remembering that I have X, then wait a day or two before digging it out to build up anticipation. And it works. They're all lovely. Recent tinkerings include Mania King (a third party Galvatron), fansprojects Hea...

Re: POST YOUR NEWEST ACQUISITIONS!

I've never actually seen a Longrack in person. He's pretty goofy-looking in pictures, but a lot more charmingly so than, say, Guiledart. I suspect I'd probably like him. Mach Kick looks like he's got the same sort of engineering as Guiledart, but is less of a mess because horse parts aren't as chun...

Re: POST YOUR NEWEST ACQUISITIONS!

The Neo stuff is definitely an acquired taste. One that I, for the most part, don't seem to have acquired. Airraptor is the first one that I can actually bring myself to call good. I like Stampy and Universe Nemesis Prime well enough but they're definitely pretty flawed. The Neos are hit and miss, ...
