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, I have some friends that collect rare / "original" bootlegs too, they'll be bummed out.

I got the wacky Stunticon bootleg last year, it's awesome. Some refer to it as "G2 Menasor".

On the topic at hand, I'm not the least bit surprised. I mean, who didn't think it was ballsy to see loads of full 3rd party figures at the Con last year when it's Hasbro's own convention?

Anyone who didn't see this coming is living in a fantasy land. Common sense should tell you what is and isn't ok to sell at a Hasbro convention. The add-on stuff like weapons and heads is likely to not be an issue as you need Hasbro product for any of that to be useful. Original figures that have no connection to Hasbro IP is the same. Old bootlegs of product that Hasbro no longer sells such as the previously mentioned white Cyclonus are probably ok too. FanProject's Hercules and the like? No way. I don't think they'll crack down on custom figures either as Hasbro made their money off that already and any additional profit to the seller is more for the time and effort put into it than trying to make money off of Hasbro's IP.

Has this already been upgraded from "rumor" to "official" now or something? Not that it affects me, but if it wasn't for this thread, I would've assumed that the sentence "items that infringe on any third party rights" just referred to stuff like the overpriced bootleg VHS tapes that used to be sold by one (now banned, I assume) overpriced dealer at BotCon.

If FP/Hasbro was really banning 3rd party stuff, I'd assume they would be more specific about it and make a bigger deal about it, rather than hiding it in a huge wall of text.

I'm hoping to still see some vintage style KO's there, as well as Gobots & other competitor lines from the 80's. I understand if the Igear, maketoys, etc. stuff is not permissible, but I hope the wacky 80's stuff or modern g1 boots still are... icon-bee.gif

This is probably obvious, but I'm kind of trying to parse what would or wouldn't fly.

Obvious things that would be out would be Warbot Defender. Presumably Protector armor and Commander armor.
What about Battle Tanker? That would certainly be more along the lines of aftermarket...oh, wait, comes with a head that likely infringes, that's out.
Weapon packs should probably be OK?

I don't have an issue with the whole preventing IP infringing products at Botcon, but there are some, I guess aftermarket, add ons that don't infringe. I kinda hope those wouldn't be an issue.

Admittedly, I can't afford to attend a Botcon until it comes back to the midwest again, but if/should that happen, I wouldn't mind being able to buy add on kits for existing figures if they don't infringe IP.

although that too raises some questions. The general shape of G1 Prime's gun is iconic, so for example(and old one), Alternators/BT Prime/Convoy had a gascan that transforms into a pretty good facsimile, so would that be out too, presumably?

I suppose to be safe any vendor would just want to eschew any 3rd party products altogether.

I know, I know, I shouldn't have wasted my time, but I just find willful ignorance, illogic and entitlement so damn offensive I couldn't help myself. icon-waspy.gif
