@  Touch My Thighs : (29 August 2016 - 05:37 AM)

Some regional variations actually have some cool headdress-type things instead of the black hood.

@  Rycochet : (29 August 2016 - 05:20 AM)

Sith Robes? Really?

@  Kalidor : (28 August 2016 - 09:48 PM)

Most google ads base their content on sites you've visited - so you're probably visiting a lot of news sites.

@  unluckiness : (28 August 2016 - 09:33 AM)

What, you don't find Sith robes attractive?

@  Pennpenn : (28 August 2016 - 09:26 AM)

Anyone else getting Muslim dating sites turning up in the ads? I mean, talk about mistargetted adverising...

I can't believe I forgot one of the core rules of video games. When the question is "They can't be that stupid, can they?" the answer is almost always "Yes they can".

@  ShadowMan024 : (26 August 2016 - 04:43 PM)

I'd say "Goodnight, everybody!" but no one's made an innuendo yet.

@  Bass X0 : (26 August 2016 - 04:39 PM)

Now I want to make devil's food cake with holy water just to see if I get hit by lightning or something.

@  Pennpenn : (26 August 2016 - 10:10 AM)

I hope not. Ruins the flavour.

@  MEDdMI : (26 August 2016 - 09:09 AM)

Did I put garlic or holy water in it or something?

@  Dracula : (26 August 2016 - 07:45 AM)

@  LV! : (25 August 2016 - 01:01 PM)

That guy had a perfectly nice home, he just didn't want the neighbors to see you with him.

@  TheMightyMol... : (25 August 2016 - 11:52 AM)

Did you at least buy him dinner?

@  Robowang : (25 August 2016 - 11:14 AM)

So I was making out with this random old homeless guy, and he stops and is all like "Why are you making out with me?" and I'm just like "Shut up, Homeless Guy."

@  Verity Carlo : (24 August 2016 - 06:58 PM)

I've seen Minority Report, I don't want to read the same thing except with superheroes and also shit

@  Verity Carlo : (24 August 2016 - 06:57 PM)

You know, what I hate about Civil War II the most is that it's not even trying to break out of the Minority Report shaped hole it's in.

@  tffan01 : (24 August 2016 - 02:39 PM)

the debate sems to be over.

@  MEDdMI : (24 August 2016 - 02:37 PM)

Translated interview with Shogo Hasui.

TFW has posted a translation of the interview with Shogo Hasui up on TakaraTomy's website. Mr Hasui is known amongst his peers as "Mr. Starscream" because he has worked on every modern Starscream toy since Armada. It offers a lot of insight to both his views, TakaraTomy's views, and Japan's views in general.

That was interesting. You don't tend to think about things like box size playing a big part in the design role, but it makes sense. And makes you appreciate when those voyager boxes are kinda big for most of the line, because that means the few bigger ones can fit.

Nifty. Frenzy popping out of Barricade's chest was inspired by the toy.

Yeah, I remember this being a big thing with Wing Saber. He was too big a size for the US, so a lot of his paint detail was removed and he barely fit in the box. Any of the figures made for the Robot Masters line are another example, not being Basic/Scout or Deluxe size.

Some of it confused me. I guess the translation wasn't that great.
One of the things was about how Japanese and American fans thought about robot and alt modes... Japanese only judge the power of the robot mode based on the weapons?? Is that what they were saying? and they judge the alt mode based on it's real life abilities??

They're saying that Americans want their strong guys big, and their fast guys slender. While the Japanese want them to have similar body types, but that they have some distinction that shows their power. Think how Animated Jetfire and Jetstorm are obviously very similar but both have traits that point to their fire & wind powers. So in the case of someone strong say he has special gloves or gauntlets while someone fast has special boots, etc but they basically have the same physical size and build.

Ok, read the interview and I'm kind of in the middle of how I feel about body types for transformers. I like diverse sizes, and I like different armaments being the deciding factor on a Transformers abilities not just one single thing. Takara/Tomy make a Alternity Jazz with normal color version and a pearl white with blue stripe that comes with a drill weapon and a little gun, and you got me. That would be the most epic thing ever! icon-silverbolt.gif Jazz's sunglasses/visor, drill, cool confident attitude, sociable, skilled, it be the best transformer ever.
