    And then there are the people in fandoms who point out the people who point out the.... :p 

    You joke but this is actually a sore point for me. There've been threads where the mods were all, "behave," some people refused to behave, the mods gave a more stern behave order, those people continued to refuse, and so the threads were just plain shut down. It even happened to this thread for a while (I think it was only a few hours but still). Doesn't matter how many people behave themselves - all it takes is a few who won't listen.

    So no, we shouldn't shut down the forums. If someone is sick of reading others' opinions, they should just not read those opinions. I'm so sick of seeing people calling for thread locks just because they don't like what's going on: if you don't like it, then you should be the one to leave.*

    *None of this is directed at you personally, @Booster Gold.

    As someone who was a mod here for a large junk of that time frame, I can confirm it is no different from now. The only thing that may have changed are some usernames, not much else.

    If discussion doesn't happen here, then everyone is heading to Facebook. If you're part of any Facebook groups ... well, I like it here more.

    So yeah, discuss. Disagree. Vent. Agree. Who gives a shit. Just do it respectfully.

    I’m all for this.
    Edit. Never mind.
    Edit 2. On third thought. Yes to that.

    So, Arcee uh?

    I think she turned out really good. Since I sold my vanilla MP-29 because I loved 40 much more (and the chrome was not all that hot) I would not mind a reissue. While I still prefer 40, Arcee looks much better with 29. Those alt modes man.

    I don't know that I appreciated the moderating here until I tried some FB groups. The atmosphere of calm disagreement is much better than aggressive snipey moderating.

    I think her eyeliner is actually pretty accurate too.

    Oh! So that's the face that the right side face was emulating with the grey color inside the mouth.
    Though in the high res pic it's not really a grey color in her mouth, but not black like the other two. Huh.

    I feel like the eyeliner really brings her sad face to life too

    I think they're all the same color but the more open mouth is just letting more light in so you can actually see the color.

    They didn't just animate her though...Toei heavily modified all of Dery's original movie character models to make them closer to the toys once they were designed.

    I do really like these faces. I’d say the eyes are probably the best part.

    I don't get why they're so similar, like barely discernible. Also why does it look like there's a little circular bump like a zit on the end of the nose? Hopefully it's just weird shadows.

    It’s definitely something to do with the light making shapes. I wouldn’t say they’re barely discernible, but I think it’s unfortunate that some can’t tell. I like the subtlety of the expression through the eyes and retraction of the mouth. Although I think it could’ve used a more angry or battling face to give the full range. That’d be awesome with the glasses like she’s bouta fuck some fools up.

    Animated (of course the whole combo as in redesign, filming, editing, re editing).

    Did the word "animated" diminished their being part of it?
