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

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!

Neon Tiger's stage music from Mega Man X3 was also pretty much straight from Guns 'N Roses' "My Michelle". X5 also renamed all the Mavericks as references to GNR.

Shade Man's theme sounds like a mariachi song.

Yeah. Lots of Mega Man songs are copied from bigger songs.

@  Bass X0 : (22 September 2016 - 12:50 PM)

Did Capcom copy Elec Man's stage theme from Journey by Faithfully?

Just to let everyone know, I went to pay for FansProject Stormbomb/Bombshell and I saw that the last wave of 2011 Generations was just put up for preorder at BigBadToyStore.

It's $40 for both, if anyone is interested. Given how fast preorders tend to go, I figured I'd give everyone the heads up.

Probably worth it just to save the hassle and waiting and possibly having to pay $40 for ONE later on.

Went ahead and jumped on it here as well, it's hard telling if finding these later is going to be an issue or not. $20 each isn't bad at all.

How fast is fast? Is this going to be sold out in the morning? I'm tempted by the idea of getting some mystery Junkion, but I just did a bot splurge...

As of checking just now, there are 91 preorders for the set of 2 available. The trick is to add them into your cart, put in some high number (I did 99), then see how many it will actually let you keep to potentially buy once you update the cart. So I doubt it will be sold out in the morning, but you don't have to pay until they're actually available anyway. They charge your credit card once the toys come into stock. icon-hotrod.gif

Kup's EVERYWHERE here now in Walmart, Target, and TRU. Frankly all the Generations figures that once were impossible to get even online. That's why I'm not worrying anymore.

I mean, we did finally get a wider Warpath release. I can wait. I'll probably even venture to guess they'll probably shelfwarm this Christmas.

Just labeled by Hasbro as the last wave of 2011, not the last wave of Generations, period, so I expect the line will continue next year most likely. Heck, considering it survived alongside the DoTM stuff, and Warpath, Thundercracker, Wheeljack, etc. are getting more common...

Glad we did not have a repeat of Universe and '09, thank goodness. If they had found a way to put the G1 guys in RtS into Generations, they probably would have been easier to find.

91 at 10:27 (Jeremy's post) to 41 at 12:33. Half of the preorders placed in two hours.

As for the name, I just put 'Junkion' because that's what BBTS was calling Junkheap in the listing.

It's pretty sad how things have gotten in regard to buying things online. There's no time to think about making a purchase, to wait until payday, etc... You almost have to buy entirely on impulse. Half of the time, BBTS and HasbroToyShop sell out of the more desired items within a few hours. Amazon's Unicron was sold out in an hour and a half (though it was restocked a few times over the course of a few days).

I was kicking myself a little for jumping on the preorder for Warpath, after I saw them start showing up at every Target I went to and it was too late to cancel my order. At least he's one of my favorite new figures in awhile, has that great feel to him of easy transformation and playable robot mode that the original Classics nailed, so I do feel like I got my money's worth.

At 2 of each per case I'm not really that worried about finding them. I still preordered one set just in case, but I'm hoping to find them at WalMart before BBTS gets them. It's been working out that way lately with GI Joe and Marvel Universe. Then I can cancel the preorder to let someone else have them.

Yep, sold out already. I guess 91 sounded like a lot, but I don't know the scale they're working with. Again, it's a preorder though. It's not really an impulse buy in this situation because your card isn't going to be charged until November anyway.

Since I have a pile of loot coming every month or two anyway, I figure $20 each plus whatever small amount that adds to my shipping is worth it. I'd be paying $12 or more each after tax, plus having to hunt around, wait, and worry about maybe not finding them at retail anyway. Sky Shadow especially is definitely important enough to me to have a slightly more expensive guarantee of getting him. Yeah, there's the possibility of finding them cheaper, but we're not talking about actual expensive numbers here.
