  1. Is that a drive motor or is that AT-AT happy to see you?
  2. Not sure how I've not seen it before, but just googled jhae's atat... Is actually a thing of beauty, and while there are some really good versions out there, I gotta hand it to him, as far as minifig versions go, he's hit the nail on the head with it. TLG gonna find their version compared to this one a lot, if it's anywhere near the same size (cavegods is slightly bigger and a different class imo). If I hadn't made my own, I'd for sure be grabbing the instructions for jhae's!
  3. It would scale to about 2 ft height, 1 metre is quite off, but yes, it should be about minifig scale, or, likely ever so slightly smaller. Unless.... It has a base to assist with stability, similar to the probe droid. Thrn I'd expect a happy medium between the system size and cavegods.
  4. Attack of the clones wasn't that bad either. Sure, not as good as ROTS, but jesus, it's certainly not from the depths of hell like people are exaggerating it to be. TPM... Well... It had its good points, and.... At minimum, equally bad points too... But it was fresh, gave us new vehicles, the start of anakins life story, kept the star wars feel while being different, good locations and backdrops. On the ucs atat, that's excellent news! Can only hope they did blindly type in that number rather than mistake it for gunship info, but given the gunship set was revealed, I can't imagine why it'd still be secret info about being an exclusive or not...
  5. This has soooo many holes I don't know where to start... Same designers work on fiat's as do ferarri, so whack the price up a bit, they're made of the same materials, throw a ferrari badge on a fiat and its the same thing!!! Chuck a volkswagon badge on an audi and your vw is now an audi! (yes, I'm fully aware they often use the same parts, it's my point. No matter how close they are, they're still different cars.) The marketing/packaging/detailing in the model is aimed at those who want a more sophisticated/detailed/intricate build. Minifigs are a supporting addition. Not a main selling point. You're literally delusional.

    So, I'm supposed to move on, elsewhere. But the moment I do, I then 'back up' (not prove) what you've just quoted? I'm damned if I do, and damned if I don't. At this point, I do want to give up... Because I'm not doing this for amusement, or any of the above. But yet, again, all you're doing is quoting an irrelevant point but to which puts me in a situation where if believed, I can't do right no matter how I proceed. So, you tell me what I should do now?

    Like they've been doing to me this whole time I'm just trying to learn? He doesn't even try to help, just wants to do put downs and suppress those that do want to learn while using misinterpreted analogies. Even though, yes, I know it was wrong to.

    Again, still waiting for you to say something relevant. Maybe today isn't the day for you. @danth See, that's helpful and relevant. And helps people in my position understand more. Learn a lesson from it, as I have. Thank you Williejm.

    I'm not trying to pigeon hole, I'm literally trying to understand what you are now so I know what to refer to you as. As someone in the community, understanding terms or gender, uh, positions(?) it comes easy to you. For me, i see a rapidly evolving community with an ever increasing amount of definitions I can't keep up with. If I'm going to learn, I want to know fully, and not assume. *edit* I'm not trying to categorise or justify what to call people, I'm trying to understand. So I can break past my whatever it is and get with the times. If I understand something, my mind opens up like the pubs after lockdown.

    See, here's the thing with that. All anyone sees is words. Way too many convoluted unnecessary excessive amount of words. Well, welcome to my difficulty (disability doubtfully counts). I was late learning to talk. By a few years. I even went to speech therapy to try help progress my talking and get it started. Eventually I did. But I was a late starter, couldn't keep up with others around me, so didn't talk much outside of being a happy bubbly quiet kid. Fast forward to now. I struggle to put things short, clear and concise. I don't like talking but when I do, I can't figure out how to translate it from my mind to my mouth/fingers properly. I can't remember basic words. I feel I need to express all that my mind is thinking about that specific point so I feel someone understands me. There's probably a much quicker way of saying that too, but here we are. I don't make a thing of it, people think I'm just waffling. To you and everyone else, yeah that's all you see. To me, i don't know how else to do it. My brain literally can't. That's how my brain is wired and I can't change it.

    There at least appears to be some middle ground and agreeance here to be had too. For me, this is progress... @Danth At least I'm trying. If that's all you can do, well... You keep at it. Maybe someday something you say will be relevant.

    "that's fair and I don't think anyone expects you to". Firstly, if its a fair situation, then it's not unreasonable. Secondly, I'm open to my mind being changed, and it has been, albeit slowly. I mean, I have no concern with gay/bi/transvestites/hermaphrodites, or many other people in that spectrum (not sure that's the right naming?) But, yes, they do expect me to. That's what all this is about, because I/we aren't. Bigot: "a person who is obstinately or unreasonably attached to a belief, opinion, or faction, especially one who is prejudiced against or antagonistic towards a person or people on the basis of their membership of a particular group. I am not prejudiced in any stretched against non cisgender people. I dislike all people equally. I also distrust people equally. Takes me ages to like and trust someone regardless of gender (all of my trust issues stem from cisgender people, so there you go). I'm not antagonistic. I don't wake up feeling like it's bash LGBTQ day. I don't walk around thinking 'Oo they look trans, I'ma go call him a name'. I don't randomly bump into one and go 'oh excuse me Mr he she or whatever you are'. I don't say things just to get a reaction. So how is it I'm a bigot? Or, is it your own made up definition? Like people nowadays using the word 'sick' to mean awesome instead of vomit? (something that grinds on me everytime I hear it). You telling me you went through your entire education without asking questions, putting forward hypothetical and real situations in order to ascertain a conclusion?? Yes there are times a teacher would ask one to 'shut up and listen!', but then you don't see how much I've listened because I'm not in a classroom with you. So you only see me asking the questions and hypothetical/real situations. So don't for one second assume everything is as you see it. Way to lower yourself to condescending. And you expect me to take you seriously and listen now? Good effort.

    I cant control the level of emotions my mind feels. I don't control when my adrenaline kicks in (sure, that can *over time* be adjusted. I don't control what makes me sad. My mind does that through years and years of experiences and situations, my mind reacts automatically to things. Just as my mind figured these things out and attached feelings to them, gender is a construction defined by humans who created words to attach meanings and definitions to, which in turn, is attached to a feeling. Naturally, one ends up figuring out their own gender. Had society not played a part in my upbringing and therefore, swayed my mind on certain things to end up naturally accepting and attaching feelings and emotions to various things. Take a pair of twins. Give them the same upbringing. The same everything. They will still think differently on things. Why? Because our brains don't all think the same way right from birth. There is soooo much going on that affects our growth before we're even born but after conception. *edited in* How can 2 siblings who grew up with the same parents who had the same upbringing before school or nursery, be soooo different in personalities? Because our minds are immensely complex and different things that can think differently from birth. Society swayed my mind from an early and impressionable age, and my mind being what it is, challenges everything I'm told. I'm an over thinker. It's who I am. I wish I wasn't, it affects a hell of a lot of things I do. That means I question *everything*, and therefore, require something to seriously beyond all reasonable doubt, change my mind on every aspect before I freely give up my previous stance. Sure, I can change my mind kn some aspects and therefore freely give up some of my stance to bring me closer to giving up all of my stance, but it's how I think. I literally can't change the way my brain perceives things. Our eyes see. The world's image is actually upside down once our eyes gather the image at the back of them. It is our brains that flip it the right way up again. From birth, we actually see upside down. But we're too young to ever remember seeing upside down. A trial was done where people wore glasses that inverted what they saw. Over time, their mind ended up adapting to things being upside down like it was normal. They stopped wearing the glasses. Had to readjust all over again. Why couldn't they just do it instantly when they know what's what? https://www.google.co.uk/amp/s/amp.theguardian.com/education/2012/nov/12/improbable-research-seeing-upside-down

    Bold response: No, I wouldn't be missing the point at any stretch of the imagination. Danth has now posted a second link to which he has misunderstood the fundamentals of the content disproving his intended meaning. While I'm getting told to 'read a book', Itd be nice if others also read to a full understanding the things being aimed at us. Yes, my situation *IS* being dismissed. Glossed over. Shoved to the side. Deemed irrelevant. Deemed a bigot view. Deemed idiotic. Its as close to like for like as it could possibly get. One day you might feel and believe to be a specific gender. The next month, you might have figured out you're a different one. The next month, you might feel you actually belong into an entirely different gender. I've been born to think differently. If I really wanted to, I guarantee I could find a different gender category that I fit into other than cisgender. But I couldn't care less. However, my mind now thinks a certain way. I explicitly can't change my thought process in the blink of an eye. If that truly was possible, rapists could be brainwashed to stop. Psychopaths could be brainwashed to be average (there's no normal nowadays). Cleptomaniacs could be told to stop stealing and they would in an instant. People who smoke could stop, because addiction is all in the mind. And controlled by the mind (which adversely affects the body over time). Not sure how in touch with the real world you are, but that shit doesn't happen. Underlined response: Please link where I've been offensive? I mean actually offensive. Not simply 'not pandering to your demands instantly because you demand I do as you say or I'm instantly a bigot and plague on this world' kind of thing. Italics response: You have to be joking.... You're literally coming across as the kind that finds offense in everything and anything, which just leads onto nerdforprez's point this is no longer about LGBTQIA+.

    And I can throw that right back at you.
