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 - 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!

My preorder from March has finally been fulfilled! I got in at the old price, now they have them listed for 20 bucks more ($75)...yikes.
Seems there are only 14 left in stock.

Love to own these. Would order them right now... But $75 is out of my purchase window at the moment. Sigh.

As soon as I saw BBTS put them back up on the front page for pre-order almost a couple months back, I put in an order. I followed the ebay auctions for a while, and unfortunately, $75 + shipping is cheap compared to those. Plus I'd have to deal with overseas shipping.

If I had known way back when, I would bought them from BBTS when they were first released. Primus knows I had the opportunity.

edit: My pre-order's been filled too. icon-hotrod.gif

Yeah, they are gauging the price a bit here, but honestly who knows what Hasbro will do with those molds. Look at the seekers and how many years it took Hasbro to get them all out.

If I was interested in those two, I would probably still spring for this if I were you. Probably still going to be a good deal in the long run.

Whether we see this mold released outside of Japan depends on when they bring the Scout class back. But that could take years.

It doesn't really. Hasbro does lots of multi-figure pack sets, especially around the holidays. The contents of those don't have to comply to any of the regular size classes. They could very easily do a "Sherman Dam Attack" box that contains Frenzy, Rumble, and Ravage vs. Hound and Windcharger or any smaller combination thereof.

-ZacWilliam, Hasbro uses the size classes to breakdown the regular line but they put out plenty of products outside that general framework (scouts to Big Lots type discount stores for another example). They just need to decide they want to and/or find a store that would take it as an exclusive. That could happen literally anytime.

Proper altmodes?
Proper quality and safety testing?
Arms that actually transform into piledrivers, instead of being partsfomery bits?

For the 5$ difference between the two, I'd go with Takara's.

I have the complete opposite opinion. I think the official ones are a ton better than those tiny little things that turn into guns. Plus lots of people broke theirs.
