Hmm...I always thought the Transmogrifier would look less Ethereal-y and more Cardboard Box-y.That said, one would hope the Void Storage is an expanded bank option. Maybe like a personal set up of the guild bank interface. But the Transmogrifier has me interested. An alternative to an appearance tab? Pay to have one equipment item to look like another? Or an in-game way to change certain appearance options other than the ones the barbershop covers? (That one seems pretty far fetched as they already have a paid appearance change... but who knows!)

So if I turn the Transmogrifier NPC on his side, does he then become a Duplicator?

Was that... Was that a reference to Eagles Are Turning People Into Horses?!
push it over and you have a cloning machine, right?

Upside down it's a time machine.

If I didn't know that was a Calvin and Hobbes reference, I might have guessed it was an Apeture Science joke....wait.....Calvin Johnson here! Today, you are going to be testing the Transmogrifier with our loyal test subject, HOBBES (Humorous Object Blatantly Beaten Ethically with Science). Just use the tiger to tip the ethreal on its side, and duplicate items. Turn it upside down, and you have time machine.The test boys are suggesting that I warn you about going back in time, and looking at yourself. They say it will wipe out time. Entirely. Forwards and back. So, if you see yourself using the new void system banking, or Transmogrifier....you just let that handsome devil go.Anything you would like to say Susie? No? Alright. Pretty as a postcard she is. But married. TO TEST REALMS!Alright, Calvin Johnson here, we're done.

Okay, seen this a lot, but I must be missing something?Is there anything besides the word "Transmogrifier" that makes this a Calvin and Hobbes reference? I mean, transmogrifier is actually a real word, pre-dating the comic by several hundred years, so is there something else to suggest it's an intentional allusion?And at the risk of being a nitpicking pedant: @Maymer: that's CAVE Johnson. (Never screw up the name of a man who threatened to "burn life's house down" for giving him lemons.)We're done here.

Couldn't have been an EATPIH reference, *that* cardboard box was a seismic reactor that, still, turned people into horses. Also, I don't see any branding paint in that shot.

The word transmogrify predates the comic because Calvin has a time machine. He obviously went back in time and spread the use of his new word. Also, Modern Day Football is derived from an ancient sport that is eerily similar to Calvinball. :D( And if I'm lying, then I just created an alternate universe where it's true, so I'm not lying. Mwa ha ha ha!)

@DaedalusIt was a joke, acting like Calvin was Cave Johnson. And Susie replaces Caroline, and Hobbes....well, it's Hobbes.So, I don't want your damn nitpicking! I DEMAND to see your manager! DO YOU KNOW WHO I AM!?I'M THE GUY THAT'S GOING TO BURN YOUR COMMENT DOWN...with the nitpicking!!!!*gets a combustible lemon chucked at him by Dae* You fight dirty, sir.

Scientific progress goes "Boink!".

@Maymer:Ah, see, well, that's what I get for reading too quickly.I humbly admit I was wrong, and offer you plate of warlock cookies by way of apology.What? No, the white chunks aren't ground up moon rock... those are deadly poison. They're...um...marshmallows.
