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. This quote from one of the protesters who said sh...

Re: Robots In Disguise Skywarp

Nice review (as always), but I've got a couple questions. From the pics, it looks like yellow portion of the robot chest becomes the rear of the actual cockpit. But, in Transformation design, you describe this as a faux cockpit, which indicates two distinct cockpits. If I'm right about the pics, may...

Re: Covid 19 / everybody PANDEMIC

So, Trump said he's taking an anti-malaria drug as a preventative measure against coronavirus. Then, Speaker Pelosi said that's a bad idea, because Trump's morbidly obese, which increases risks of that drug. Then, cnn ran the numbers on Trump's weight and height to determine if his BMI actually indi...

Re: General LEGO discussion (inc. collectible minifigs)

Thanks, guys. Reading the discussion of Multibot in another thread got me thinking about making him with Bionocle. I'm trying to decide if the pieces should simply separate by removing the ball from the socket, or using those little ball pieces with the cross-shaped hole so the ball remains with the...

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. Satur...

Re: Remembering that our old toys actually exist!

I don't know if this counts as old, but definitely not remembered. I bought a PotP Outback a while ago, maybe Jan 2018. I remembered buying him, but not where I put him. Turns out, he was in the group of unopened toys under the shelves in my kitchen. I finally took him out of the package. He's a cut...

Re: Generations Selects Siege Redwing

Are you including the nose as one of the pointy bits? I assume "tetrajet" counts the pointy bits as the 2 wingtips, top, and nose. Granted, the top isn't pointy due to the thrusters going there in bot mode. I detached my Nova Storm's backpack from his body, and had a full robot and full tetrajet. Bu...

Re: Covid 19 / everybody PANDEMIC

Today, Rhode Island passed 10,000 residents who've tested positive for coronavirus. In another couple days, we'll reach 10,600, meaning over 1% of the state will have tested positive. Coincidentally, this'll be the same day our stay-at-home order expires. The order expiring won't affect me, much. I'...

Re: TLK Megatron

Is this the Voyager or the Leader? I'm guessing Voyager from the price, but I found my Leader for US$20 when shops here were clearing out TLK figures, so I'm not sure.

Nice! You should post up some pictures at some point, I would be curious to see what it looks like. I couldn't figure out how to attach them to this post, or my Kreon Thread, so here they are on my tfw2005 thread . Vehicle Voltron's almost done, I just need to make the blue shoulder vehicle more in...

That's a good point that I hadn't thought of. On the other hand, I got to use the term 'ouroboros' in a forum post. :p

Re: POST YOUR NEWEST ACQUISITIONS!

I don't know about never seeing anything new again. We just had a cartoon line with animal based bot modes a couple years ago. Organic beast alt modes might be few and far between because they're harder to pull off than mechanical beats like Hammerstrike. We did just get a new Cheetor, but he was a ...

Still, it's got to be better than injecting disinfectant Hey, now. When Trump's right, he's right; if you consume bleach, you will not die of coronavirus. You will die of bleach poisoning.

Re: General LEGO discussion (inc. collectible minifigs)

A while ago, I built a Vehicle Voltron which is the same height as the official Lion Voltron. I didn't like the red chest jet, and last week, I finally got around to rebuilding it. Now, I'm much more satisfied with the jet, and the combined bot's look. That inspired me to continue work on my Gladiat...

Re: Covid 19 / everybody PANDEMIC

It is nice that I can hook a Raspberry Pi (a small computer that runs Linux) up to it and watch Youtube videos in my living room. With a fan? How's the heat and does it play 1080p content reliably?

Well, all the money I've been saving means I've upgraded to a 4K TV and blu ray player at last. I tell you what my fine friends, Moonraker looks amazing on a 4K TV. Roger Moore's face, less so. I was using an old tube TV until last September, when my parents gave me their 42 inch 720p plasma after ...

Re: What TV shows are you watching thread.

There's been a few times when Lego Masters explained some things, like SNOT = Studs Not On Top. Explaining more advanced stuff would probably go over the heads of people watching who aren't already super into Legos. They're hoping the show gets more people to buy bricks, so they don't want to intimi...

That's the golden rule, isn't it? Do unto others as you would have them do unto you? Or is there a fancier name for it in philosophy proper? The general principle was a bit broader, about equality.

Re: What TV shows are you watching thread.

I've also been watching Lego Masters . The first episode, where all the builds were pushed together, made it hard to see where one ended and another began during the judging, so I was unsure how I'd like the rest of the series. But, I've liked the rest, especially the bridge challenge where they ran...
