I cut out the middleman and assume that they're all jerks and/or shills.

@  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.

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.

@  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.

@  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!

Don't really see the appeal of add-ons for G1 toys since the base figure is still outdated. Or the Bludgeon ones, since there's already a tank/Pretender shell mold out there. Definitely going to get a couple of these Tomahawk kits just for the feet, in case the figure gets repainted into something I like.

And the Trailbreaker, eh. I definitely see Hasbro doing him in the next Classics line and he'll look better than this.

I'm totally down with the Cerebros head, assuming that its robot mode is colored like Spike was in the cartoon also.

I like the Fort Max set for the simple reason my god damn Korean Spike went missing and it really pisses me the hug off.

So, if these guys aren't a million dollars, they'll be worth it to me.

He's colored to match the lighter gray on the toy, but the layout aside from the upper chest looks the same.

Was the Tomahawk ever recolored? Or was it just the black version?

Wow, I am surprised Headrobots is going into doing full robots since, well, it's more than just a head.

I wonder, could you use HA Whirl's lower legs or feet in a similar manner?

There was the Japanese Vortex release, with the alternate head. Not sure if the colors were different on the regular Japanese Tomahawk, if he was even released there.

To be fair, we've known this kit was in the works for a while now.

Trailbreaker would be awesome....if it wasn't trying so desperately to be a 1980s Hilux. That's not how Classics works. If the same transformation was done with a more modern (and generic-y) truck alt-mode, it'd be pretty win.

I have been waiting patiently for this upgrade... but man, it has become a huge disappointment.

The original plans were to give Wreckage/Bludgeon a tank turret too, and Whirl would have had a cool new head made for a Voyager toy - I was planning to use it for Energon Bulkhead. This new head - looks just sad, and Bludgeon is just the head and the katana.

Trailbreaker looks really nice, but much like the IGear minibots, looks too much like a more articulated G1 toy then a Classics toy. I love the Legends one and am sure that sooner or later Hasbro will give us a Deluxe - after all, we got Windcharger last year, and him and Trailbreaker are perhaps the two least known members of the 1984 cast.

The Japanese Tomahawk was mostly the same. His gray was darker than the Hasbro version IIRC.

You can see the short sword in Bludgeon's other hand, and what appears to be a scabbard on his left hip. I don't know if we're getting the full-blown turret, but it's definitely more than a head and one sword.

Also, are you sure that the Voyager head you're thinking of wasn't the ROTF Whirl upgrade? They did that as a limited-edition resin set nearly a year ago.

If Trailbreaker's price doesn't break me, I could see myself picking him up to fill the time until Hasbro makes one. I'm impatient.

I'd also pick up the Whirl set in a heartbeat, if I didn't already have a neat Whirl custom (which did break me).

I'm mildly interested in Trailbreaker. We got the little one, but it's not really satisfying, and there's been no signs to my knowledge of a continuing generations line at the moment, so....

Kinda interested in the Fortress/Cerebros set too. Will have to see price.

Trailbreaker looks OK. I'm all for G1, but I would actually have preferred a figure that uses his original character design as a springboard to something a little more creative. His vehicle mode is pretty slavish to the original too, which would actually make it seem a bit out of place amongst the Generations/Classics/etc. IMO, seeing as they are updates and reimaginings of original characters.

The Cerebros set is cool but BBTS has it on preorder for roughly $60, which is a little more than I really want to pay for 2 headmasters and a sword. At half that I might consider biting, but I'm just not emotionally invested enough in the character to shell out the full $60.

I'd be interested in this set as well, but $60 is FAR more than I'd be willing to pay.

You know what might be a cool set... release a recolor of Butcher minus the head that it colored to go with Botcon Clench. You obviously wouldn't want to replace that wonderful Clench head, but you could give him weapons.
