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.

@  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?

@  ▲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)

People always bring up Detritus when talking about possible redecos of Universe Hound, but if my memories of BotCons past serve me right, he was always one of the most easily available e-HOBBY releases from convention dealers; nobody wanted him. I think he's been replaced in this capacity in recent years by Protect Black Ironhide and Emergency Green Ratchet, but it's still a pretty distinct memory for me.

The only Legend on the list is a non-Gobot. Presumably this is Bug Bite's doing.

I don't think you understand. Classics allows us to want characters no one wanted in a new format! icon-arcee.gif

I know it's an off-the-wall suggestion, but I personally want Detritus from Lockdown/Axor. Classics allows for re-imagining of some of these guys, so let's take advantage of that. I think the mold is perfect for a Junkion--the colors would be snazzy and it's even covered in Dery-spikes!

My wants, In order of Priority:

Sunstorm from Classics Starscream - Not surprising to anyone, but if only one more Seeker was made it should be Sunstorm.
Detritus from Universe Hound with Howlback from Universe Ravage - More Junkions, plus a bonus of a female(?) cassette.
Road Rage from RTS Tracks - I'm always up for more femmes, though I still wish the Tracks mold didn't look so boxy.
Black Starscream from Classics Starscream - Give him a new name or recycles old name (Nightscream or Darkscream), I'm always interested in more Seekers.
Laser Magnus from RTS Laser Prime - Not my first choice for the mold (MM Overload is), but Laser Magnus would be neat, and I think it'd be fun seeing if 3rd parties make new armor for him. icon-fire.gif

I would have been more into the initial eHobby versions of these guys, but I wasn't even into buying the vintage G1 molds that much before Classics started, let alone after the promise of getting better molds for the characters came around. There were just newer, more fun toys at the time that were cheaper.

But then he got to be cheap, so everybody bought him. Now we all have him, so an homage would be fun.

Also, the Hound mold is fantastic and should be repainted again.

I say Detritus.

I've repurposed him to take Death's Head's place although he's still called Detritus, can now transform and originates from Junk. Same personality and mannerisms, yes?

Yeah Detritus and Overcharge (some years ago) could be bought for cheaper than the reissue they were recolored from.

I'd argue that the potential appeal of a CHUG-style figure is significantly different from that of a new-character "reissue," to the point that this isn't really relevant even though it seems like it should be. Detritus is one of the few e-Hobby guys who didn't tie themselves into one collecting Big Deal or another so as to overcome the inherent problems of being an outdated mold without "classic character" status to justify it.

Also, this Detritus would actually have other decent Junkions to hang out with.

I wouldn't mind Pathfinder, but I'd prefer her in her gobot colors (Black and Silver with Red details) then the e-hobby look which, unlike most the others, isn't very different from normal Cosmos.
