@  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.

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?

Here's the Anakin remold of the Class I Y-Wing mold that TFW reported on a few days back. The rereleased brown Droid tank and Darth Maul are on there, too, and there's also a Obi-Wan remold of the Class I Actis Jedi Starfighter (maroon colors, not blue).

There's also a retool of Obi-Wan's Starfighter into Anakin that isn't listed with the Transformers.

Ah, cool. I hadn't seen that one. I may actually pick that one up (I don't much like the colors on the other two versions of the mold).

I'm still wondering where that Darth Maul from Toy Fair 2011 is. He was the one that initially got me interested in this size class, but we've seen nothing of him since then.

These are already on the shelfs in the UK as I picked up that Obi Wan the other day. Fantastic Headsculpt (I get a Junkion vibe) but terrible legs and transformation. Just cant seem to stop his arms from popping off. I hope this new size class continues and improves though as they are quite fun for their size.

Who were the original releases? Im guessing that Anakin and Obi Wan have swapped molds, but who originally transformed into the Y-Wing?

A Clone Trooper.

And yeah the Ep 3 Jedi Fighter is pretty terrible. The Ep 2 Starfighter is cool though.

I got the Vader version of the Actis mold back in October, and while it's nowhere near as good as the Y-Wing, it's still decently fun and has a great deco, and it's certainly has a better use of kibble than the older, larger Actis mold. However, if anyone just has to have Anakin as himself, I'd recommend getting this new Y-Wing version, as that's a great little mold (also, for anyone unfamiliar with it, don't forget that the HTS pics of the Anakin version are mistransformed - the Y-wings nose gun section split to form a skirt of sorts and allow his hips to move fully forward). However, that Aethersprite remold looks pretty good too, though it seems to use the same head mold as the Actis version.

Question, the pictures of Y-Wing Anakin don't show his elbows very well. But, how is this mold's arm articulation?

It's ok. if you keep the arm straight, the elbow forward movement is limited to about a 140 degree or so angle. However, his forearms also bend inward at the elbow, making for a good two-handed rifle carrying pose for the clone version. The shoulders are somewhat limited ball joints.

And Hardbot, we've not seen any news on more Marvel TFs in over a year (unfortunately), and there were some toys that never got released, like the Punisher, blue Human Torch, the new-molds Iron Man/War Machine combiner 2-pack, etc. I believe the last new marvel TFs was the obscure glow-in-the-dark Iron Man wave that only seemed to show up at Ross and whatnot (I saw the War Machine repaint of the car IM mold there last summer).

Still need a few Y-wing Clone trooper basics and the Green Jedi Starfighter. I rather like the Obi-Wan from Wave 1.

They're perfect for making Cyberverse Cybertronians.

And they do actually plug into Star Destroyer Vader with those weird tabs they all have, though it took me a bit to find the connection point.

Not that it really accomplishes anything interesting, but planned interaction is always sort of neat.
