The Seacons should just replace Nautilator with a Lobclaw drone. It'd save 'em a lot of heartache.

@  Bass X0 : (31 May 2016 - 04:46 PM)

We spend a lot of our youth wishing we were older, and a lot of our time as adults wishing we were kids again.

@  ShadowMan024 : (31 May 2016 - 04:38 PM)

You still have Nautilator. YOU ALL STILL HAVE NAUTILATOR!

@  TheMightyMol... : (31 May 2016 - 03:45 PM)

Release the Nautilator! No, really, release him, he sucks.

@  Foffy the Sheep : (31 May 2016 - 03:01 PM)

Feed them to the Gnawticas!

@  Bass X0 : (31 May 2016 - 02:01 PM)

Cruise's ego can crush planets. That counts, right?

@  Foffy the Sheep : (30 May 2016 - 07:38 PM)

Xenu is just Tom Cruise in a wig, though.

@  wonko the sane? : (30 May 2016 - 07:00 PM)

I'm pretty sure cruze just offers the planets to xenu, he doesn't actaull eat them himself.

@  Foffy the Sheep : (30 May 2016 - 06:57 PM)

And they both eat planets.

@  wonko the sane? : (30 May 2016 - 06:56 PM)

well, it was one or the other. I might have been confused because they both have huge heads.

@  Foffy the Sheep : (30 May 2016 - 06:35 PM)

I've never heard that before. Are you sure you're not thinking of Tom Cruise?

@  wonko the sane? : (30 May 2016 - 06:32 PM)

I thought galactus was supposed to appear differently depending on which species is looking at him?

Galactus isn't goofy-looking. His hat is the grandest of all hats!

@  PlutoniumBoss : (30 May 2016 - 12:58 PM)

And we run into something like the Galactus Fashion Conundrum. Are YOU going to be the one to go up to his face and tell him he's goofy-looking?

Maybe Miles's villains think you're lame!

@  unluckiness : (30 May 2016 - 11:07 AM)

I don't mind Miles but his villains are kinda lame.

@  Bass X0 : (30 May 2016 - 09:29 AM)

I just thankful they didn't have a black Peter Parker.

@  tffan01 : (30 May 2016 - 09:09 AM)

I would have preferred Peter Parker. But If they really wanted to make a non-Peter Parker lead, they could have made Spider-Man 2099, at least it has a gimmick (futurism). While Miles, imo isn't that different from Peter Parker.

@  Locoman : (30 May 2016 - 08:52 AM)

That would be cool. Ultimate Universe kind of went off the rails toward the end, but I always liked Miles.

His big scene in the big Astrotrain battle for leadership was also great. Too bad Starscream suckerpunched him after he beat everybody else up

@  Pennpenn : (29 May 2016 - 01:00 AM)

Of course he has. I mean, remember when Trailbreaker had to pretend to be him in Masquerade?

QUOTE(Octavius Prime @ Feb 7 2012, 05:53 PM) <{POST_SNAPBACK}>
The only thing I don't like about this guy is his name. Yeah, it makes sense regarding his role in the ride, but Evac already exists as a movieverse character and looks nothing like this. And yes, I'm aware that a 2-time repaint character that didn't appear in the films themselves is of secondary concern to coming up with a character that's the audience's link to the interactive movie ride, but still, some continuity would be appreciated. Like, he could have been "Getaway"/Breakaway.

So, instead of being a movie dude who has the same name as another movie dude... he should be a movie dude who has the same name as another movie dude?

So, for clarification, there's a Deluxe Class Evac and a Legion Class Evac coming soon? Are they both going to be sold everywhere, or only at the Universal Studios Store?

The Legion Class figure is going to be every where (and Universal too I believe) but the Deluxe will be Universal only (at this point). Asia is getting a mass release of the Deluxe class figure as well as an exclusive Universal only version. At NYCC Hasbro said that the Deluxe class was going to be mass released in the US too, I don't know if that still holds true now that the Movie Trilogy line isn't coming to the US except for the Optimus truck set.

A Twitter friend was at Universal Studios Hollywood recently. She asked about it, and was given a rough (no guarantee) estimate of June 10th.

They probably want the ride to stand on its own, as a ride, before they have to worry about supporting a toy line.

It's almost as if Universal didn't want to call off their big opening for the hoped-to-be-hot new ride just because one piece of merchandise wasn't ready in the gift shop yet.

And the benefit of not selling the toys is? Have you ever been on a ride at a park? When you exit, it is all one big sell. That is a big part of the point of the "experience." Sell pictures and merchandise.

To develop a toy specifically for this experience and not have it ready during what may be the busiest time for the ride is an opportunity missed.

Apparently doesn't take much reality to upset some people. Of course, your nonsense is not in any way a rebuttal to my point that not having the toy ready loses dollars. If you can't ever admit fault you can't expect to be taken as a rational adult.

Oh can you imagine? Of course, like the poster above, you're more concerned with simply typing a response to me than having any tertiary argument to mine.

Obviously it makes more business sense to open even if the toy isn't ready, but it doesn't excuse the fact it should be ready if you're number one goal is making the most money ever minute of every day, which it always is.

See, I was kind of hoping that you were smart enough to realize that sometimes things just plain don't work out as intended, and that you were therefore criticizing Universal for opening on time anyway. But alas, you've disappointed me once again.

You've also disappointed me by using "you're" as a possessive.

But what disappoints me most of all is your attempt to argue with gargunkle's joke. That's just sad, dude.
