Re: TF Nation 2019

Definitely worth doing at least once. TBCH I think a TF convention as a concept is more of a day event unless you're going for other attendees, there are a lot of loose things you want to check through the seller stands for, or you have a lot of the panels/events as must-haves, but some folk do effe...

Re: NEWEST ACQUISITIONS!

Vintage Rumble & Ravage - $20 seemed kind of steep for these. I figured $16 since that's what two mincars go for, and these are about the same size. These were the only ones left, and all the Soundwaves from last week were gone. So, I figure I can't wait for clearance like i did with Optimus. Carde...

Re: Some thoughts on the Marvel TF comics

So many younger fans actively hate him now for doubling down on his views of fembots and relationships, it's a shame. He's destroyed his own legacy. Twitter's just a different kind of echo chamber to Facebook, and as much as MTMTE and to a lesser extent LL developed some audience beyond existing re...

Stu and Marian are already there AFAIK. Giving it a miss this year, too much else on.

Re: Worst Transformers alt mode?

It's cyberverse, yeah, although one of the "spark armour" packs and it pins helicopter parts to the robot mode so that it doesn't look like Megatron at all (looks a bit like G1 Skyquake actually). The Optimus one gets a jet chest piece and an alt mode that isn't completely shit -- https://www.smyths...

Re: Some thoughts on the Marvel TF comics

I was surprised to find that I adored the late-run black and white stuff too. Now, I completely understand why the UK crowd don't I do. It ends with a bit of a whimper, but I started on the comic at 268 (apart from a random issue 134 and whatever annuals, collected comics and stray issues could be ...

Re: New Death's Head Limited Series

Second string's fine, it's finding Young Avengers dull that I can't forgive (impression mainly from the Gillen run, IIRC) -- although to be fair, they got thrown through one lousy Marvel event after another for years. Wiccan in particular has the usual problems of a "magic" character, being a whatev...

Re: New Death's Head Limited Series

Mmm, yeah on all points. Art's great, generic second-stringers don't fill me with joy, the story is a little underwhelming and I think any one of us could have successfully tweaked the dialogue a bit. The humour's pitched well and it doesn't feel throwaway apart from the alt-universe stuff, it has t...

Re: Photo Uploads

I'm a bit reluctant to when there are some decent hosts that have been around for years -- the review forum attachments are more for images ready resized for upload. https://makeawebsitehub.com/free-photo-hosting/ I'd suggest Imgur for fire-and-forget uploads that are still likely to be online for a...

Re: Latest Music Purchases.

The Wildhearts 'Renaissance Men' (2019) Late to the party again, an unexpected album and even more unexpectedly on top form. Without going on and on it I'd hold this up more with the 90s albums than the others since, even if apart from the belting Let 'Em Go it did take a bit of settling in. Can't ...

Re: Transformers (2019-?) #1 [SPOILERS]

Sixshot doesn't seem like much of a big deal in #9, does he?

Would be lying if I said I was keeping track of this by any other way than seeing other people mention they got it on social media, but I am enjoying.

Re: Official Transformers new/upcoming releases! Hasbro, TakaraTomy and more

It's all on the same joined card (one has the barcode) for some reason, a battle pack of three pieces but it's two cassettes = 1 robot vs 1 robot. Would assume it's targeting an existing price point and they weren't prepared to include another cassette.

Definitely going to be tempted by Graphy & Noise. Objectively not great toys but a lot of 90s-internet nostalgia.

Re: Website encryption?

Cheers. Does the automation cause issues with other things? I think the current version of certbot creates jobs unless told not to (and that's all my host does, AFAIK).

Re: Official Transformers new/upcoming releases! Hasbro, TakaraTomy and more

Lots of neat stuff. They should be able to get a few slightly modified uses out of that MM combiner.
