    Comrade Vangelus, I love your anti-capitolist ToysRUs rants. If someone could perhaps gather them all together in one file, that would be an amazing listen.

    I just like to imagine that the sock puppet voice of Imposter Geoffrey is David Schwimmer as seen during the skit on Jimmy Kimmel a few months ago...

    Good lord, how many Bumblebee trailer talks do we have to endure before NYCC coverage?

     Desiccated remains of Toys R Us and KayBee, twitching under the hand of evil forces.  Geoffrey sitting in a chair, black icore oozing out.  There must be a Five Nights at Freddy\'s knock off in this.

    I'm not saying it's an easily-solved mathematical puzzle based on regular human traversal through time, but

    @Vangelus, would you care to share your Combiner Wars Hot Spot/Inferno fan mode to a hover tank? I bet it might thematically work well on Megaempress.

    Looked, but it doesn't seem like the Chicago area has a Jack In The Box.

    Also, if Vangelus plans to check out the Chicago area for Kill Team miniatures, I did find this thread for local RPG shops:
    Chicago RPG shops?

    Although, your talk of Toys-R-Us had me envisioning a 5 Nights at Freddy's scenario, with a dilapidated Geoffrey animatronic roving the deserted hallways of a closed TRU, looking for somebody to hug.

    I feel like a lot of people forgot this in the past seven years so I’ll point it out here: Hailee Steinfeld made her debut in the Cohen Brothers’ True Grit, which she got a Best Supporting Actress nomination for.

    So yes Seth, in terms of acting, she’s a bit of a step up from Megan Fox.

    Oh wow, I didn't realize that was her. That movie was really good and it wouldn't have been nearly as good if she wasn't such a good actor.

    Seth, why you gotta be hating on Evil Space Elves? Too edgy?

    Kill Team is great but man, what a rabbit hole that it has become. I was like "oh, a box of Ork Boyz should be enough to play 100 points" then it became "oh I should get a box of Lootas/Burna boyz to spruce up my Kill Team" to "You know, a box of Drukhari Wyches is enough to field a small Kill Team"...And the story writes itself from there. As guy who played Shadow War Armageddon and spectated on Necromunda (cool models, just way too many humans), GW certainly has a winner here, especially the Rogue Trader set which is just...impressive.

    Actors with talent are fine, but we've had Anthony Hopkins and John Turturro in the Bay films and that didn't help. I still have some faith in Bumblebee, but it's all based on Travis Knight.

    As for customizing existing figures, I have always wanted to mod TLK Barricade into an IDW Prowl. honestly, all I'd want to do is change the head and the hands plus a bit of custom paint.

    oh god. Buscemi showed up in one of these? That makes me sad. He's listed on IMDB as "Daytrader". Is it just a cameo?
