@  Touch My Thighs : (26 September 2016 - 09:30 PM)

Sakamoto or Sipher's art?

@  ShadowMan024 : (26 September 2016 - 08:17 PM)

Oof.

@  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)

What did Derrick do?

@  Pennpenn : (26 September 2016 - 07:42 PM)

That makes sense, thank you.

@TheMightyMollusk WWE Raw is on tonight. By the third hour, it'll probably feel the same, minus the actual physical trauma.

@  TheMightyMol... : (26 September 2016 - 06:53 AM)

I think I'm just too used to metal to not understand the lyrics.

@  ▲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!

well the interactive media is what surprised and impressed me the most really. i wasnt expecting a page of tech spec repros, a small Optimus Prime animation cel, etc [as seen in the pics above]

but there ARE a few other neat things in there. I havent given it a thorough read-through yet but it looks pretty comprehensive!



as far as a little rundown of the book? i'll have to see!

its a really neat book though! its interesting to see something that focuses more on the TF brand overall and not just strictly the "mythos" like the past Ultimate Guide book and others like that

I still wish they'd included a repo of the S.T.A.R.S. base though. Seems the perfect chance.

Looking at the Amazon description..... did they shorten the book by about 100 pages, or am I misremembering the old announcements?

I'm definitely getting it regardless. Very interesting to hear that the book is more about the brand than the mythos.... I'm not sure how exactly they could pull that off. I mean, they have to talk about the story elements, prehistory, and characters in SOME level, don't they?

I'm thinking the difference is that the previous encyclopedia was a reference that treated the Transformers as if they were real, whereas this book talks about the brand, including the characters, toys, cartoons, etc.

yup! its Abrams. just checked

on the inside cover it says "Transformers Vault: The complete Transformers Universe showcasing rare collectibles and memorabilia"


and it DOES touch on the mytho's but its not entirely centered around it like the other books are. [the mythos are part of what makes the brand afterall]

but that should help give you an idea icon-fire.gif

its a REALLY cool book though!
nice and big and hardcover [and the "case" it comes in is pretty hefty too!]
a very quality book!

Id've bought it if i wouldnt've gotten comps icon-waspy.gif

It sounds like this is a really good book, and I'm definitely looking forward to it.

Josh, by any chance, was there much (or any) material on Beast Wars or Beast Machines? Or was it mostly focused on G1 and the movies?
