Polkatron dares to be stupid and is voiced by A. Yankovic.

@  TheMightyMol... : (13 February 2016 - 07:07 AM)

He got all the musical talent in the family.

@  BillBarclay : (13 February 2016 - 05:59 AM)

Polkatron? is he Plokatron's spotty brother?

@  BillBarclay : (13 February 2016 - 05:58 AM)

Polkatron? is he Ploj

@  Plokatron : (12 February 2016 - 11:21 PM)

@Cabooceratops So was what I said. :D

@  Cabooceratops : (12 February 2016 - 09:10 PM)

It's called a joke, Polkatron, you may have heard of the concept?

@  Plokatron : (12 February 2016 - 08:06 PM)

@Nutjob R/T @TheMightyMollusk Yesh are you Baybots thinking so litteral?

@  TheMightyMol... : (12 February 2016 - 02:41 PM)

Optimus makes a lousy helmet.

@  Nutjob R/T : (12 February 2016 - 02:11 PM)

Wait when did Optimus Prime fly off the top of your head?

@  Plokatron : (12 February 2016 - 01:55 PM)

@Paladin @TheMightyMollusk @NotVeryKnightly Dumb dumb dumb on Hasbros part. Optimus flew withing the first three episodes of the G1 cartoon. No not the glide flight thing that only Deceps uses after that I mean the jetpack part. Plus I can site four other times he flew off the top of my head.

@  Boomhauer : (12 February 2016 - 12:45 PM)

Optimus already got to fly in RID's Season finale, though one could argue he was just falling with style instead of flying properly.

@  Rycochet : (12 February 2016 - 12:09 PM)

The Unicron Trilogy had awful shows but some really neat toys even if it did get off to a shaky start with some of the unnecessarily flawed Armada stuff.

@  NotVeryKnightly : (12 February 2016 - 12:09 PM)

Didn't he fly in Beast Hunters?

@  NotVeryKnightly : (12 February 2016 - 11:58 AM)

What about Animated?

@  TheMightyMol... : (12 February 2016 - 11:55 AM)

Someone who never saw the Unicron Trilogy. God do I envy them....

@  Paladin : (12 February 2016 - 11:49 AM)

...Hasbro's billing that new "Power Surge Optimus Prime" as "the first time Optimus takes flight." who thought THAT sounded right....

@  TheMightyMol... : (12 February 2016 - 11:34 AM)

More likely, they'll all follow the same visual style to retain brand coherency. The most you could hope for is better writing, but don't hold your breath.

@  Dracula : (12 February 2016 - 10:25 AM)

Cool. Bay can't possibly direct all of those. Maybe we'll get someone else's vision of what a TF movie could look like.

@  Paladin : (12 February 2016 - 10:14 AM)

ugh. we're apparently getting 1 TF film A YEAR starting 2017. and Bumblebee gets a spinoff film...

@  Plokatron : (11 February 2016 - 03:23 PM)

Guess no one has the comic then. Blast I need that close up of Ironhide's helmet!

@  Paladin : (11 February 2016 - 10:45 AM)

could've also meant Cree Summer...

@  Dracula : (11 February 2016 - 08:39 AM)

Good going, Blackarachnia. I heard it's been hard for her to get roles after Hasbro brought in Airachnid.

@  BillBarclay : (11 February 2016 - 06:34 AM)

you mean Venus Terzo! she's supposed to be going to Botcon

@  Whirl Maximus : (11 February 2016 - 03:23 AM)

Blackarachnia was on Supernatural last night.

@  Plokatron : (10 February 2016 - 11:08 PM)

Ponderous slagging ponderous. Hey anyone got some good Hi-res captures of Ironhide in Infestation? I really need close ups of his head for reference on a project.

@  Plokatron : (09 February 2016 - 10:46 PM)

Ok now this is funny. I ordered a used copy of HoS GN and the one I got was a library copy once. It's marked Union County on it. Thats my home county. :D It never was in my library though. Mine is named after the man who built it not the town or county but still kinda funny.

@  Tm_Silverclaw : (09 February 2016 - 09:44 PM)

Is it sad I read "KF7 Soviet" as "KFC7 Soviet"?

@  TheMightyMol... : (09 February 2016 - 03:38 PM)

Neat.

@  Dracula : (09 February 2016 - 03:35 PM)

A what? Oh, you must mean a KF7 Soviet. Common mistake.

@  TheMightyMol... : (09 February 2016 - 03:22 PM)

Can I just get an AK-47 instead?

@  Telly : (09 February 2016 - 02:35 PM)

this is form 47-a. you want form 47-A. start again

@  MEDdMI : (09 February 2016 - 02:07 PM)

Now you didn't fill the form in black or blue ink. Do it again.

@  Rycochet : (09 February 2016 - 02:04 PM)

You made a typo on the first page of the forms, you're going to have to go back and fill the whole form out again, from first to final.

@  NotVeryKnightly : (09 February 2016 - 01:31 PM)

"bats"

@  Dracula : (09 February 2016 - 01:09 PM)

Nice and soft, you say? This isn't even my final form!!!!

@  Dracula : (09 February 2016 - 08:52 AM)

@  BillBarclay : (08 February 2016 - 04:58 PM)

btw one of the Transformers Victory intro's(not the original music used) on YouTube uses one of the pieces of music used on the US version of Transformers Armada

@  Rycochet : (08 February 2016 - 03:55 PM)

You should read it again, it gets better with age!

@  Whirl Maximus : (08 February 2016 - 03:46 PM)

I am fully aware of that story and mentioning it carries the penalty of fifty towel snaps.

@  Rycochet : (08 February 2016 - 03:31 PM)

Shh, it's a trap!

@  TheMightyMol... : (08 February 2016 - 02:48 PM)

See, you said "awesome" and "The Beast" in the same sentence, and I think you broke my mind with the contradiction.

@  Rycochet : (08 February 2016 - 02:42 PM)

No-one tell Whirl about the awesome dinobot combiner, The Beast.

@  Plokatron : (08 February 2016 - 02:37 PM)

@Dracula Uh oh were in trouble.

@  Rycochet : (08 February 2016 - 02:36 PM)

If you think that's cool, wait until you see what other stuff we're hiding from you.

Looked neat!

Never change.



Well, to be honest, I wasn't expecting much at all from this film, as I felt it was way too soon to reboot the franchise. Yet the trailer surprised and impressed me. It actually made me want to see this film. Denis Leary playing a semi-serious role is quite a nice surprise, as is Gwen Stacy, which Emma Stone looks so perfect in the role to me. I didn't mind the organic web shooters in the last series of films, but these webshooters look awesome! having Peter being focused on science this time could be really cool, and I am hoping that it plays well into the story. Speaking of which, The Lizard! Finally! I can't wait to see how they portray him! It looked like from the trailer that he is more underhanded as Dr Connors, and isn't just a villain when he's the Lizard. I'll be interested in seeing how that works out.

Really, the only thing that could make this movie better for me is if at the end, Shield/Avengers show up and take the Lizard into custody. I think that this could be a neat Spiderman to have in the Marvel Movieverse.


This film went from Pass, to definitely watch. Whether or not I will see it in the theaters or wait for the Blu-ray and watch it on my 131" projection screen, I have not yet decided.



TL:DR Looked neat!

Restoring an Old Arcade Machine!

I still don't think they've got Peter Parker right. I agree about the mask off stuff being bad. I actually prefer the organic web shooters idea, I prefer Spiderman's signiture ability to be a power rather than something he's made himself.

It looks like Spider-Man by way of Kick Ass.

I'm not liking it. As others have said, it feels way to inspired by the likes of Batman Begins. Plus this doesn't strike me as a Peter who wisecracks to deal with the stress of fighting crime but a smart ass who got super powers and took it in stride. It doesn't look like a bad movie, just not a Spider-Man movie.

The best thing about this trailer, is what they left out from the last one: F.P.S.

First Person Spidey

It looked like a bad cutscene from a videogame.

Hopefully they either improved it, or got rid of it altogether.

Man, that thing was all over the place.

I do wonder how the Uncle Ben story is going to play out this time around. They can't possibly be thinking of rehashing the "Peter becomes a callous celebrity" story again so soon. Seeing as how Peter blames himself for the Lizard's creation, I wonder if Ben ends up as gator chow?

The problem comes in that it takes away from the character. He didn't get ALL of his Spider Powers from the bite so, being the super smart guy he is, he made one up for himself.

Making it just another power takes away that intelligence and ingenuity.

My problem is that no matter how good this movie is, I'll be distracted the whole time thinking about how much better and cooler this would/could be if it was in the Marvel movie verse. That said, it doesn't look great.
I finally got rid of that big white box.

That really is an issue, even though it's not this movie's fault.

The same year that we're getting the culmination of a cinematic superhero universe built on 5 previous movies, we're also getting...a Spider-Man reboot. Fair or not, it's tough to build up the same amount of enthusiasm.

Yeah, pretty 'ugh'. The Lizard has a too human-like face, he looks more like Killer Croc. I like Spidey's costume, but the actor is just not how I imagine Peter Parker. And I really don't care for the whole darker tone - Spiderman fighting cops and the military? Getting unmasked? Really? He is not friggin' Batman...

The female lead is attractive, but that's all the positives so far.

Personally I look at it the same way I see the DC direct to DVD/Blu Ray movies. In where they are stand alone series. Sure the reboot sucks, but whatever... this movie isn't going to affect my life in anyway.

I would even like that model as Killer Croc for a Batman movie (in some comics, he does have a tail) but for the Lizard, it adds to his inhuman-ness that he has a long snout AND yet he talks and acts like a human. (Which I wonder if this version will even do...)

That, and I do hope we at least have one scene where he is still wearing a tattered lab coat with a 'Dr. Connors' nametag.

Any word on whether Norman Osborn is in this one, and who plays him? Since the Oscorp building was shown...

Will watch this at the cinemas, because I am a sucker for comic book movies (only one I did not watch in theaters was The Spirit) but I don't have high expectations. The darker tone is especially a poor choice for a movie that comes out the same year as Dark Knight Rises.
