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.

@  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)

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)

Love me some Lovecraft though. The real authentic stuff.

The Pretender Monsters might have been the obvious choice to use here what with the existent Lovecraft link in Monstructor, but I'm kinda glad to see the Seacons get some airtime instead. Underused and all that.

Anyone else have the fish-men remind them of that fish Battle Beast with the purple armor?

I've already decided to grab this title (as well as the 2 Infestation 2 issues, naturally) but I'll wait to see if I'll like it before grabbing the other titles, like GI Joe or TMNT. I'll probably get the trade if I decide to.

Interesting to see they changed the 'Bee design, didn't mind his original HoS look. Or maybe that was just for the cover and he'll be a locomotive again in the series.

Huh, didn't expect to see HoS again. Cool that they're not just visiting the main IDW universe again, since TF is very multiversal.

Looks pretty cool, even for someone who doesn't care about Lovecraft.

As a side note, I hope eventually Kup resurfaces somewhere.

I think this is so they can do a bit more with the premise.

In the main IDW-verse we knew going in there was going to be nothing of lasting consequence to the core cast or universe.

I figured they just didn't want to drag the main continuity into a crossover a month after the relaunch. Besides, steampunk and Lovecraft work well together.

So this time around are the comics actually going to cross over at all?

Also, should I ever bother with any of the IDW comics relating to Infestation, like wherever these CVO guys are from?
Woooo!

You know, my initial reaction to this was "great, this one isn't a part of the man IDW continuity, so I don't have to read it." Mainly due to the first Infestation being so weak, except for the Star Trek issues, which didn't even need to be linked to Infestation to work.

But this....actually looks like it may be decent. Like someone above said, this time I'm waiting for reviews, and if I read it it'll likely end up being the eventual Trade Paperback.

Edit: @ Zodberg: I wouldn't bother with any of the others unless you were already reading them. From what I saw of CVO (admittedly, just what was in the crossover) it read like a lame ripoff of Hellboy and Torchwood. And no, not in an awesome way, despite how that description sounds.

Seacons? SEACONS?!

Dammit, I was hoping this would hold no interest to me and I could skip it without a second thought, even with the HoS designs. Although I am hoping it'll have Kup in some way.

Interestingly, Snap Trap seems to have a mini Piranacon head instead of his normal head.

-Edit- Oh and I love that they're using Submarauder's pretender shell design (who I just realized both robot and shell share the same colors as the Seacons).

The Seacons shown are Snaptrap, Tentakil, Nautilator and... Skalor maybe?
