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)

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!

I'm wondering about the possibility of Fansproject putting out a recolor of the Protector armor to go with the recent club toy for Sideburn. I think that it is possible - they repainted and rereleased the City Commander armor, what, three or four times? In any case, I wouldn't complain if they did.

What about the rest of you?

I would definately want it (with a remolded head that looks similar to RID Sideburn). It definately would make business sense, and would likely go as fast as Shadow Scyther. The main problem I see, is scalpers, and if certain questionable business practices occur, like holding back stock to jack up the price later, if it is going to be an exclusive to a particular store... But I guess this has become the norm.

Any buyers would have to be quick on the draw. I think this will happen.

I don't see why they wouldn't, if they released one for the clear Rodimus.

But there are chances they won't either. They are more Side Burns then there are Gentei Wildriders and SG Rodimus figures combined I believe.

Shadow Scyther doesn't look half-bad on Sideburn. Plus, bonus Chain Scythe.

I think the red and gold one already works for "SUPER MODE!" ... but maybe Reprolables here and there adding colour fades would solve the drastic blue/red boarders

If they made a Dark clear blue it would work well for both, perhaps then they'd just need to include both faces

Well, right now I hear KO makers are looking into making a KO Protector, so I'd imagine they'd do recolors, even if the original Protector maker did not.

One that does 0 design and engineering work. So, again, hug those guys.

And I like how you use the phrase "the original Protector makers", as if anything's up for grabs. The original Protector makers are FansProject, the people that sunk the time and money into designing, engineering, and marketing the thing.

Except they're stealing a design and engineering from another third party

So, quite frankly, they can go and get stood on. I want to give money to Fansproject for making the damn thing, not Bob McKnockoffs

Please do so. Supporting Fansproject is a great thing. I was commenting that if Fansproject didn't do a recolor CHMS might do it. Yes, they steal molds. We know that. It's what CHMS does. I only buy stuff from them when it's impossible to get otherwise - ie hundreds or dollars for the real thing, or a new color no one else released it in. Obviously if Fansproject makes a Protector recolor it would be higher quality anyways.
