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.

@  Rycochet : (27 September 2016 - 07:15 AM)

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.

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)

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!

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

:(

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

Sorry bebbeh, I'm taken.

Eh, I dunno. I kinda dig the Roadblock myself, and both Beachhead and Kamakura are good custom fodder. With a new head and some new accessories, Kamakura can make a nice VvV-inspired Night Creeper, while Beachhead is so basic, the sky is essentially the limit.

I just don't understand that reasoning, since that requires them to put cost into development, sculpting, and the molds for the brick drivers. That's a lot of money that mix-and-matching doesn't require, since it only needs one of those steps.

Actual parts production is the issue. Even with all the parts already tooled, a figure with 30ish parts costs more to make than a new figure with 7ish parts.

Good news everyone!

With Saturday Nights plans de-railed by possible food poisoning (damn you Burger King and your chicken sandwiches!), I stayed home to dine on crackers rather than pizza. So in the morning ran to the east-side Wal-mart to get some soup (and scout for any 'new Phyrexia' packs/intro decks/fat-packs/ect that might be hanging about... want my elsh norn dammit!!!!), and lo and behold, they'd gotten in Joes for the first time since they clearanced out the movie figs.

Someone had sniped Sci-fi and one of the zombies, but I did pick up the rest, including law (who I was on the fance about).

He might as well be at one per case. I've seen everyone else multiple times at this point, but I've yet to see SS in the wild.

One per case in a single wave, with everyone else getting held over/added to in the next wave, and that wave being the one getting stocked at many places...

I got a wave 4 case from BBTS... I keep telling myself I don't need him... there have been at least five BEST STORM SHADOW EVARs since 2007, so we'll probably get an even better one soon enough... and this particular mold is getting at least two Retaliation repaints, along with most of the accessories being reused...

You misunderstand. Storm Shadow's in the wave 3 case, and as such is the only figure I wasn't able to get. I'm trying to talk myself out of buying another case of guys I already have to get him... or in the alternative, paying as much as a case just to get him.

The red ninja is going to be Slice, because... well, really now.

The Storm Shadow I will probably make into an approximation of VvV Slice, but call Slash, because I don't need two guys named Slice and I have too damn many red ninjas anyway.

The Snake Eyes will... eh.

Same situation with my Walmart, seems Wallyworld might be giving Joe some support leading up the movie (that, or simply slotted the existing line to "save space" for the movie stuff in May).

Either way, I might be seeing new Joes locally again (and not at a collector/drug store prices!)...right after getting all I wanted via Walgreens and TRU.com... icon-megs.gif
Hell, knowing Walmart, they won't even get any Joes (or if they do, it will be one or two piddly cases) until they start build up for Retaliation.
