Yeah, it was really sad that they didn't survive in any of the endings. Eaten by Unicron every time.

I wish I could have seen Kick Axe live.

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

@  TheMightyMol... : (26 September 2016 - 09:51 AM)

I think I'd rather punch myself in the nuts.

@  Dracula : (26 September 2016 - 09:34 AM)

I think I'll watch Godzilla versus Gigan instead

@  SHIELD Agent 47 : (26 September 2016 - 09:32 AM)

Hillary versus Trump tonight. Oh boy.

@  TheMightyMol... : (26 September 2016 - 06:53 AM)

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)

@  Xellos : (22 September 2016 - 05:25 PM)

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.

@  Dracula : (22 September 2016 - 02:26 PM)

the band name is Journey btw.

@  Bass X0 : (22 September 2016 - 02:25 PM)

i never heard Journey before today (BBC R2 Ken Bruce Show) but recognised it immediately.

@  ShadowMan024 : (22 September 2016 - 02:15 PM)

Shade Man's theme sounds like a mariachi song.

@  ShadowMan024 : (22 September 2016 - 02:13 PM)

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

Henkei Thundercracker: Of high quality and the lack of remolds.

So, I just picked up a Henkei Thundercracker, and was pleasantly surprised to find that he had absolutely no loose joints, and the launchers fit perfectly in his arms. He's perfect. Neat!

Then I realized he doesn't have the common remolds - no extra line across the air intakes and no rounded mounts on the wings. Has anybody seen this? I was under the impression that all of these used the other mold, and that part of that caused the launchers not to fit.

For what it's worth the Skywarp I picked up at the same time uses the remold, but is also still pretty good quality wise.

And also, before anybody asks, yes I am sure it's not a KO.

Never heard of this. Is it possible you got the 2nd batch, as when Gentei Thrust & Dirge were made available, so were more Thundercrackers?

Look at the date on the inside of his leg, what is the date (it should be A - L, first 12 letters of the alphabet representing the month of production, and then followed by 4 digits, for the day and year)?

Well, here's a thing. He doesn't have one.

His copyright stamp has © 2006 whereas Skywarp has © 2008.

Yeah he used the older version of the mold, which at the time was the better of the two. Very interesting.

I'd actually buy another Henkei Thundercracker if I would be assured it was the new one.

Strange he doesn't have the date stamp on the inside of his lower legs.

Might I ask where or whom you bought it from? icon-hotrod.gif

Mandarake has a special policy to give OCD Transformers collectors priority on mold fixes.

Can you order from them if you're not located in Japan/visiting their shop?

Oh, right. Since you can technically search for about anything on their store, the first thing they ask is if you want to filter adult content.
