I LOVE BOT MASTER SO MUCH. Too bad the toys sucked. I even own jungle fiver. I love him so much, but he can barely stand on his own.

@  TheMightyMol... : (27 September 2016 - 05:03 PM)

That's the 90s.

@  MEDdMI : (27 September 2016 - 04:50 PM)

Ninjzz? That's an unfortunate name.

@  Verity Carlo : (27 September 2016 - 04:44 PM)

Also I thought Fico Ossio was quite nice on Revolutions.

@  Rycochet : (27 September 2016 - 04:36 PM)

You know the planet is in a jam, a diabolical plan of only one man. Louis Leon Paradim an international punk, and his army of 3As are his piece of junk.

@  Telly : (27 September 2016 - 04:26 PM)

for the longest time i thought jungle fiver was called jungle fiBer

@  Bass X0 : (27 September 2016 - 04:21 PM)

Does anybody remember the cartoon Bots Master? I enjoyed the show but looking back on it, most of the robot designs were lame. The only cool designs were Jungle Fiver and Ninjzz although the toys were nothing compared to Transformers of course. I thought the main human characters were decent enough for a show about robots. 

@  Verity Carlo : (27 September 2016 - 02:43 PM)

Although this is odd to me, since I'm fairly sure they are/were good friends.

@  Verity Carlo : (27 September 2016 - 02:42 PM)

Yeah I stopped liking the guy when I found his Twitter.

Social media is the worst thing to happen to fandom, you can now see people whose work you like being jerks or shills on a daily basis, which is worse than a bad interview or two.

@  Robowang : (27 September 2016 - 07:12 AM)

Dirty Jerk Warts?

@  Broadside : (27 September 2016 - 07:05 AM)

Also, I guess he hates IDW Soundwave for not being an emotionless brick like the cartoon version? Man. Any enjoyment of Animated in future is going to be tainted for me by the fact that DJW is the worst kind of boring Geewunner.

@  Broadside : (27 September 2016 - 07:04 AM)

He also hates Action Man for no apparent reason other than "I don't know who this is and I don't care to find out". Which isn't fair, because Ian is the best character in IDW.

@  Jalaguy : (27 September 2016 - 06:47 AM)

DJW was mouthing off about the art for Revolution the other day too, doesn't entirely surprise.

@  zephyrX9 : (26 September 2016 - 08:05 PM)

Sipher made a sarcastic remark about Sakamoto's skeeviness. Derrick called him an a**hole, and insulted his art, which was a low, unnecessary blow.

@  Touch My Thighs : (26 September 2016 - 07:43 PM)

@  ▲ndrusi : (26 September 2016 - 06:02 AM)

it's a vile interruption, chess the scripture way

@  Pennpenn : (26 September 2016 - 03:49 AM)

I've had versions where the issue doesn't come up (or at least doesn't come up in the part I notice the most), but the version that got remastered for Bluray and DVD releases have it.

@  Nevermore : (26 September 2016 - 02:05 AM)

I initially misheard "flying tools of torment" as "we're flyin' into some torment".

@  NotVeryKnightly : (26 September 2016 - 01:08 AM)

If it's a problem with all released versions, maybe the original audio source was itself damaged?

@  Pennpenn : (25 September 2016 - 09:30 PM)

I wish they'd relase a remastered version that fixed the audio and included at least had an option to have the text crawl rather than the credits at the start.

@  Telly : (25 September 2016 - 09:27 PM)

tryin to buy the movie from amazon for $20-ish. the price of it has been fluctuating like crazy. not a day has gone by that it hasnt dropped to one price and then gone back up a few hours later. never seen a price fluctuate so much

@  Pennpenn : (25 September 2016 - 07:57 PM)

Then again, a lot of versions of the movie had pretty bad sound quality, even the most recent blu-rays mess it up in places, so it's not as much our fault if we misheard stuff.

@  Arazyr : (25 September 2016 - 07:28 PM)

When I first heard it, half of it may as well have been in a foreign language, for all I could make out. (Of course, I can say that about most music...)

@  Pennpenn : (25 September 2016 - 07:14 PM)

I can't remember entirely, and I can't "hear" anything but the actual lyrics now, but I remember "I am born to hurt you, I'll break the boundless sky" as how my brain parsed the first words.

@  Nevermore : (25 September 2016 - 07:01 PM)

So what did you hear?

@  Pennpenn : (25 September 2016 - 06:39 PM)

I almost completely misinterpreted the lyrics for that song for ages, and when I did find out what they were I thought my idea of the lyrics was better.

@  Nevermore : (25 September 2016 - 06:29 PM)

So apparently the 2016 remake of "Instruments of Destruction" is out. I'm still waiting for an Amazon download to become available, but the clips I heard thus far sound cool. They're using the uncensored lyrics!

@  Bass X0 : (25 September 2016 - 03:02 PM)

:(

@  PlutoniumBoss : (25 September 2016 - 08:25 AM)

Sorry bebbeh, I'm taken.

I'm still not really sure about that. I can see it both ways, but it really depends on whether Prime deserves it's own toyline or not.

Considering how many characters are being revealed I'm guessing it does.
Maybe due to Arcee's recent exposure they feel a G1 toy has a chance?

I don't see how this positively definitely absolutely cements her as being the Generations one.
After all, this'd be like if the first waves of Animated were sold under the Universe banner. Except worst, since Hasbro's putting more work behind TF: Prime.

I'm thinking it is because besides Warpath the other new Generations listings with Arcee were Bumblebee, Optimus, and Starscream. All characters on TF Prime.

That, and Generations Arcee is just two waves away while this one isn't out until fall. I think we're getting Generations Arcee in part to hold people over until we get Prime toys.

We could get a hold on new waves while Dark of the Moon has its run though, but that's unlikely.

It's far from an exact replica of Prime Arcee, but it's about as close as I'd think a toy could come to resembling the design, and it doesn't look like a half-bad toy either. Head seems a trifle small, but that's probably just the photo. Keep the panel-age to a minimum, and you've got yourself a fun toyline.

Arm blades are a bit too large though. And I'm almost disappointed with how un-stylized she is: give her a new head, she'd fit in pretty well with your Classics toys.

(Five bucks says she gets used as an eventual Botcon exclusive, because, hey, fembots.)
Being part of any fandom is fundamentally embarassing.

Good point, but this reveal does give a strong argument that the Warpath wave of Generations will wrap up that line, or at the very least, just leave Hasbro to trickle out a couple more with remolds and redecos hinted at in the instruction manuals. Wheeljack is the only shared mold with United that's left to go in addition to the surprises of Thundercracker and Warpath. As thrilled as I'd be to see an all new and original G1 Arcee mold be released by Hasbro, all signs point to it being a pretty big longshot now.

Still curious why Takara didn't choose to release all the original molds Hasbro decided to (Thunderwing, Warpath). Perhaps 22 releases under United was a magic number, all ending in a fantastic conclusion with those two pending eHobby exclusive three packs.

I'd be really surprised if Prime toys were just a subset of Generations. I mean, it's a successful show on Hasbro's own network, and it's already been greenlit for a second season before the first has really started. It's clearly going to be a bigger push than just some Deluxes crammed into another line.

Also, I don't know if they'd typically give a release date for something that's just a Generations assortment.
