Re: Covid 19 / everybody PANDEMIC

I knew it was getting worse here, but not enough that it'd be making the news in other states with their own problems. Oh, it wasn't local news. It was one of the MSNBC evening shows. I should have specified that. I tried your suggestion of going to the store an hour before closing time today. Far ...

Re: Bineltech Grimlock Spoiler Problem

Just be patient when hunting for parts. They turn up sooner or later. Dug out some of the mustangs, and here are the alternator and binaltech side by side: https://imgur.com/a/SyGLYXl As you can tell, there's no visual difference between them aside from the chrome on the binaltech (the difference is...

Re: POST YOUR NEWEST ACQUISITIONS!

I had the Netflix siege Nemesis Prime thing arrive yesterday. Never bothered with the siege Prime mold before, so it's my first handling of this version. I like that I ended up with a Nemesis Prime that's a remold/retool of Earthrise Prime as it differentiates them more. I also like that Hasbro put ...

Re: Bineltech Grimlock Spoiler Problem

Where are you in the world? I can probably find the parts in my custom fodder box, but depending on where you are, the postage may not be any cheaper than the price of buying another one. Also, Binaltech and Alternator Grimlock are visually identical aside from the chrome wheels on the former, so yo...

Re: Covid 19 / everybody PANDEMIC

Saw on the news today that Rhode Island has spiking cases and hospitals at full capacity, and made me worry for Mr. Tantrum. Apparently the US as a whole doubled its number cases for the whole pandemic just in November. And yet, when I went to the grocery yesterday to get crackers and other hunkerin...

Re: POST YOUR NEWEST ACQUISITIONS!

Prowl and Ironhide are a two-pack, yeah? Wasn't impressed with the look of Ironhide/Ratchet, but was happy to find Bluestreak at Walgreens about a month ago. I had thought it a remold of the Siege figure(s), but I can't actually find any parts in common between him and Barricade. As for me, I picked...

Re: Revisitation: The IDW Original Continuity Retrospective.

I was totally unaware that Hearts of Steel was incorporated after the fact. I remember it mainly from doing an essay on period adaptations in a humanities class in college, but that was ages ago. Only point I remember was being confounded as to why they chose to use Mark Twain instead of Nikola Tesl...

Re: Covid 19 / everybody PANDEMIC

Will that still be considered impressive now that we all know just how far back the nasal cavity actually goes? It might end up being more impressive for people that can't stand the sensation. Here in Murray, the school district I've been substitute teaching for is back to in-person classes today a...

Are you tackling just the main continuity, or all the odds and ends like Hearts of Steel as well?

Re: Covid 19 / everybody PANDEMIC

Here in Murray/Calloway county, they're booting schools back to online instruction for two weeks starting Monday because the positive infection rates for the area are spiking. Of course, parents on social media are cry/whining about it being too soon because there aren't enough people sick *yet*. I ...

Re: OFFICIAL TRANSFORMERS TOYS NEWS

I'm a bit puzzled by the Studio Series '86 stuff. I think it's a great idea...but some of these characters are getting concurrent releases in Siege...so I don't quite understand what Hasbro is going for. Or is it that some characters will only show up in Siege or SS '86 and vice versa? Quite like t...

How long will it be until you get the result?

Re: Covid 19 / everybody PANDEMIC

. What on earth do you do that they won't just let you work from home? Sitting in the winter with the air conditioner on to reduce the risk of covid would just increase the risk of pneumonia, so there's no real gain that I can see. Concur with those who don't think it's a hoax but probably got cove...

I have no doubt he is a raving insane greedy evil bastard like the rest of the GOP because the Trump's VP is from my state and if you think Trump is bad believe me Pence is a LOT worse. Yeah, I do not so much fear Trump (which of course I totally do) as I do the more competent version of him that f...

Re: OFFICIAL TRANSFORMERS TOYS NEWS

Yeah, the fossilizors (sp?) are unexpected and welcome in their novelty. I hope they're actually neat, too. Primal and Beast Megatron seem analogous to their masterpiece counterparts in the same way that Earthrise Prime is to the third version of MP Convoy. In other words, smaller, cheaper options t...

Re: Covid 19 / everybody PANDEMIC

The scarecrow has its arms outstretched with a span of about 6 feet, so I'll have a sign on him reminding people to stay that far apart. The sign will also say, "Shriek for candy". While the kids are reading the sign, I'll throw candy at them from the window. The window is basically behind the fron...

Re: POST YOUR NEWEST ACQUISITIONS!

Found Blitzwing and Skipjack yesterday. Blitzwing's neat enough. Skipjack's great, and helps the color balance of Devastator quite a bit. Not wanting to leave out Rampage, I worked out how to attach him to the back for a bigger hump. Since movie Devastator's supposed to just be made out of whoever's...
