I guess if we can't have our steamrollers, a ship is a fair compromise.

Might be hard to roll over people in a ship, though.....

It's bad on mp Starscream because after a while of transforming him the paint starts to wear off on the sliding joint. Mp-10's feet are okay. After a while Grimlocks starts to wear off too. They need better paint on the figures.

A new Legends scaled Sharkticon by the name of Gnaw

An Overkill repaint of the Titan Master Crashbash / Squeezeplay / Cancer

This shit is starting to drive me nuts. This is the exact opposite direction we should be moving in. Police bodycam footage exists to keep them accountable for their actions, so it makes absolutely zero sense to restrict access to that footage from the very people they're supposed to be accountable to.

This type of footage should be completely available to civilians without any requests or fights required. In fact, I would go further to say that the police themselves should have absolutely zero control over the storage of this footage, or the policies regarding its availability. It is illogical and self-defeating to allow the very people we're trying to keep an eye on to decide when we get to look at them. If they're not misbehaving and they have nothing to hide, then we should be able to watch whatever footage we want whenever we want for whatever reason.

Who is going to police the police?
 
In North Carolina, police bodycam footage is now off limits to the public. http://boingboing.net/2016/07/14/north-carolina-adopts-the-nati.html

It seems to me cameras only benefit those who are watching them during training. Every other time they have been needed, they have miraculously disappeared.

For all of you who might wonder why a grown ass man likes Transformers - this is pretty much a perfect example. The amount of brilliant engineering required to create these figures is impressive as hell. As someone who appreciates both puzzles and clever engineering, they often manage to check both boxes with gusto.

This figure, for example, is a tablet computer that transforms into a robot with a gun and a little chicken friend, and yet it manages to pull off the Tablet mode wonderfully. I just can't help but find that incredible.
Fellow Seibertronian Doc Bot was able to acquire a Hasbro/Xiaomi MiPad Soundwave figure off the secondary market, and has shared a number of in-hand images along with some thoughts for the rest of the collecting Transformers community - check them both ou

And to think, we're pretty close to having this but as a functional tablet in alt mode.

+Jason Scheffler It's their content\product to distribute how they see fit through whatever channels or services they wish. Using various methods to circumvent their intended distribution to gain access to their product is piracy. The fact that it's streaming doesn't change that. To each their own, not for me.

Toy Reviews  - 
 
I am so tired of seeing adult toy collectors and reviewers complaining about "bad" and "cheap" plastic whenever they encounter a children's toy that's using flexible or softer plastic.

People seem to forget that these toys are designed for YOUNG KIDS and as such they make INTENTIONAL material choices that will reduce the chances of the toys breaking. That means they will sometimes have some flex or bend to them, because otherwise they would simply break instead of bending.

It's like a good chunk of this fandom has forgotten that we collect toys for kids, and expect them to be making design choices as if these are intended for collectors. These are not MP figures. These are not Third Party figures. They're cheap kids toys.

If the plastic on this toy was "cheaply made" or "low quality" then bending and twisting it around would have snapped it clean in half - the fact that the toy manages to stand up to that kind of treatment without even showing any signs of stress or deformation is proof positive that they made an intentional and valid choice in using flexible plastic. This video does not indicate that the toy is poorly made - it actually indicates that the toy is made correctly to stand up to the kind of treatment kids will show it.

It might upset a handful of unreasonable adult collectors, but the hundreds of kids who won't be crying over a broken toy are far more important. If you're one of those people who buys toys for kids only to complain that they're designed with kids in mind, you need to get some perspective desperately. You are not the target audience for these products, so please stop complaining about them like you are.

Especially if you're going to review a product - review the product for what it actually is, not what you unreasonably expect it to be.

+Daniel Carelli Yup, I get what you're saying.

This is why I find it interesting when adult collectors complain about the modern era TF toy they bought off the shelf at a Walmart or TRU in the Children's section. Unless it is a Masterpiece and catered to the adult consumer and at an MSRP at 5 times the cost of a single carded figure, you are absolutely comparing apples to oranges.

There are action figures and then, action figures. I know the quality is different for the "cheaper" toys now because of higher costs in materials and manufacturing...and this is why I recognize that the toys catered to children do nothing for me. The toys that resemble the quality I grew up with are NOW high-end toys. Just how it is.

So, it's one thing to be aware of this, buy them, and then complain about it. And it's these types I don't get. In short, if you want a QUALITY high-end toy that looks like it can belong in a museum? PAY UP. If you wanna play, you gotta pay. :)

One point though: Older toys may have been easy to break...if you tossed them around like a football. I still maintain to my death that the Japanese toys of the 80s were far superior to the toys made today for children in durability. But, I may be biased.

I never never never never understand people who flip out about gender/ethnicity changes in fictions like this. I saw a bunch of similar outrage over Hermione being played by a black woman in the new Harry Potter play.

Such idiocy.
