Bet nowadays Tony Hawk got moms asking him "excuse me, are you by any chance Blitzwing ?"
I want someone to make a classic formula "wandering hero" TV show in the mode of The Fugitive or the Bixby Incredible Hulk where the lead character is Tony Hawk, and every time as he's leaving at the end of the episode having saved the day with his gnarly skate moves, whenever one of the episodes supporting characters asks "Who was that guy?", the person answering it always gets it wrong.
Any thoughts on why Ol' New Space Choo-Choo's Mystery Box has treads moulded on the roof as well as on the bottom now you have him in-hand?
Hahaha brillant !
Or the Scoobidoo gang unveilling the mask of the vilain at the end like usual but it's Tony Hawk and they're like "well shit, made more sens as space pirate ghots."
As far as I can tell it's mostly convinient spaces for the way the transformation works.
I tried putting the guns above and backward, filling the gap, but that doesn't make it more great visualy.
So I retcon this mode by saying it fits very well in the line ! It's a shuttle not entirely done, still in construction, so "pre-earth mode" in a sense !
Hey I try ok ?
It is more noble to fail in the attempt, than to fail by not attempting at all.
I just realised if the Scooby gang did that, what would actually happen is they just wouldn't have a clue who was impersonating the ghost, even though every time it's been Tony Hawk they unmask. "I really thought it would be Old Man Travers the minor character in one scene this episode, I don't know this guy, whoever he is!"
Turns out it's the tragic actions of a man who just wants to be recognised by at least one person but never is.
- This is incredibly true and I thank you for saying that.
- It's very simpe actually. Wouldn't the gang have a clue of whom any of the headless hologram sheeps were, the universe would simply explode.
Thus, Tony Hawk is our eternal savior for not being behind the mask, ever.
We shall thank him every day by calling his mom and congratulate her for having raise such a nice little redhaired girl.
Isn't weird that so many of our very first orders with Kapow were in 2009? That must have been the year they started up......
My first order from them was on 26 November 2008 for henkei Megatron. Order number 329.
Not sure why this is a thing.. but I looked and the earliest Order I can find without poking deeper for Kapow is January 2011 where I bought some Transformers Animated toys.
Yeah they started in 2008, before that they apparently were Ebayers from 2005 to 2008.
And right now they're trying their best to resolve my "powerdashers empty box" mystery. Or they're sleeping. I hope they're sleeping.
God I'd like to sleep right now.
Jon, which devy is that?
Woo ordered MFT rodimus, can't wait for that.
Here's some random headmaster love with my custom scorpy, hopefully won't be too long until kapow ships apeface and hasbro gives us a snapdragon
That was Tony Hawks the British comic, although I don't know why he put on an American accent, did some skateboarding, and didn't tell any jokes though...

HERE COMES A NEW CHALLENGER!
Don't suppose any of you fine TF fans would sell me their Maketoys Trash-Talk and Cogwheel set? I'd pay £66.17 (£60 set, £3.95 Royal Mail 2nd class Signed For small parcel, and PayPal fees) or £81.62 if My First Blaster is included. Box doesn't need to be perfect. May consider unboxed, in fact
That's who he gets mistaken for in the Season 1 finale, which also features a cameo by Tony Hawks with a 'Fridge on his back!
The usual end credits theme is swapped out for...
CALENDAR & CARD UPDATE
I have checked with the printers, Calendars WILL be £15 plus p&p, Cards vol.2 will be £10 plus p&p (I'll combine postage where I can.) I will take orders until Sunday the 8th Dec & then inform the printers on the following Monday to print everything.
This also means any Calendar contributions must be in a couple of days before then. For some weird reason picture subs have been thin on the ground this year. In fact they seem to go down every year... dunno why. It does mean that this year is potentially your best chance to get a picture into the calendar!
It also means I'll be chasing up all the current preorders for payment... Monies. I need it.
@Danforth you have inspired me.
Happy Halloween! *checks date* Oh right.
How do we go about ordering them?
Your Powerdasher issue is one of my biggest concerns over the whole Select style packaging. I know window-less boxes have been used in the past, but the sher number of these ones makes the missing toy risk even higher.
I believe Kapow started in late 2008. My registration email says September. I'm pretty sure Kapow was started out as a result of how EBay had treated Andy at the time. Fairly sure I bought the American Masterpiece version of Starscream from Andy just before Kapow was formed.
The details are gone, but there's a thread here - Ebay have just destroyed my business
Good morning Threadizens!
