    The usual offerings of malt-whiskey and deflowering virgins under full moons is getting me a Blue BlueStreak (he's relatively blue) and a similar diet WILL get me a Siege Sunstorm. 1632428712030.jpg

    It will happen.

    Blind ones?
    Ones who despise Hasbro and Mattel and refuse to buy the co-existing superior product?

    I think it's quite telling we haven't had any repaints of the Earthrise original seeker trio yet. They're coming!

    I want them to do SG Dirge, or a 'G2' Dirge using the SG Dirge colours. His colourscheme will go wonderfully next to G2 Ramjet

    Hurm, beginning to suspect today is not extra Fossilizers day after all, as it appears the Wandering Yodeller (or his van thieves) has now turned off the ol' GPS as Tracking only shows my location, and continues to assure me they are 9 deliveries away.:sly: 

    Thought I'd try the chat function to let 'em know not to bother with a Friday attempt the one time it seemed active, and once I'd put in my info it said "No operators available", then the chat button did a Winehouse and went back to black "Sorry no one is available". :lol 
    Ah, well, I had a good Yodel run there for a bit!

    Big Spoon! has it been a while? or maybe I've just missed your posts recently. Hope all is well

    I wouldn't mind a G2 Starscream, but it's so close to regular starscream it's probably not worth it.

    As somebody who has all but given up on superhero movies I would put decent new X-Men and Fantastic 4 movies pretty close to the top of a list of things I'd still have some intrest in seeing, if not right at the top along with more Deadpool, Daredevil and Kingpin being introduced in a Spidey movie and live action Squirrel Girl.

    Shang-Chi and the Eternals somehow managed to get their own movies and giving the charisma vacuum that is MCU Hawkeye his own series already makes me feel like they're scraping the bottom of the barrel so I think it'd be huge step in the right direction for the X-Men and Fantastic Four to be back on the big screen ASAP.

    Read on Twitter the interesting suggestion that rather than being cinephiles, we’re being cinephages: conditioned to just consume as much movie media as possible to extract the most money from us.
    We have Netflix, Now TV and Disney + and there’s almost too much to actually watch..

    The Maketoys version is a bit too red, the G2 Starscream is a lot more pinky salmon and that does help differentiate the two. Fun Publishing did a good job.

    That seems about right, there also seems to be the pressure to broadcast one's consumption as well, or even doing another consuming activity simultaneously, whilst supposedly consuming a movie itself, hence the increasing prevalence of bad "Plot Hole" assertions for stuff clearly implied to have happened off-screen within the course of the film/show, sometimes even explicitly mentioned in dialogue. Lotta Folks are Skim-watching.

    You're too kind sir sid!

    Everyone offers the deflowering Virgins. No one ever offers reflowering virgin services. Call me bias, but an unholy demi god of unspeakable butt horror, just once it would be nice to see some upcycling of the virgin offerings.

    I don't know, in person that red is different from g1 screamer. Id take a g2 er screamer.
    And sg dirge. G2 or sg thrust. AM thundrcracker.
    Siege sunstorm. Nacelle. G2 blackout
    I could go on, but basically I like seekers.
