Anyone know what the caption on this page refers to? http://tfwiki.net/wiki/Primon

After the season finale where RM Corp found a way to make thinking Bots, I was hoping for a continuation of the story where Paradim learned the hard way the downside of Bots that can say, "No."

@  Rycochet : (28 September 2016 - 09:40 AM)

I liked Phantom 2040 more.

@  Blues : (27 September 2016 - 05:08 PM)

I LOVE BOT MASTER SO MUCH. Too bad the toys sucked. I even own jungle fiver. I love him so much, but he can barely stand on his own.

@  TheMightyMol... : (27 September 2016 - 05:03 PM)

That's the 90s.

@  MEDdMI : (27 September 2016 - 04:50 PM)

Ninjzz? That's an unfortunate name.

@  Verity Carlo : (27 September 2016 - 04:44 PM)

Also I thought Fico Ossio was quite nice on Revolutions.

@  Rycochet : (27 September 2016 - 04:36 PM)

You know the planet is in a jam, a diabolical plan of only one man. Louis Leon Paradim an international punk, and his army of 3As are his piece of junk.

@  Telly : (27 September 2016 - 04:26 PM)

for the longest time i thought jungle fiver was called jungle fiBer

@  Bass X0 : (27 September 2016 - 04:21 PM)

Does anybody remember the cartoon Bots Master? I enjoyed the show but looking back on it, most of the robot designs were lame. The only cool designs were Jungle Fiver and Ninjzz although the toys were nothing compared to Transformers of course. I thought the main human characters were decent enough for a show about robots. 

@  Verity Carlo : (27 September 2016 - 02:43 PM)

Although this is odd to me, since I'm fairly sure they are/were good friends.

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.

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)

@  ▲ndrusi : (26 September 2016 - 06:02 AM)

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.

Well, this is boring as hell. That voice being used for the whole thing stinks but then he really isn't doing what he does best and just attacking it. It's like he's really afraid to piss off the fans.

And the Bill Cosby crack was just dumb.

Right off the bat he bitches excessively about the Bay films.

And drags it on.


And on.

As much as these people bitch about Bay's films being tripe and unoriginal, I'm seeing even less originality in these "parodies".

I've never not turned off a Nostalgia Critic review before it was finished before.
But I just did now. Good god this was boring. He wasn't nitpicking, he wasn't making funny jokes, he was just summarizing the events and throwing in bad Windows 7 gags (was a Windows 98 gag just too dated, Doug?) in a crappy Optimus Prime imitation.

Not to mention the initial three minutes of Bay bitching.

I haven't watched this video yet, but I thought he really liked the Bay movies? at least the first movie anyway

Tell me, did he end the review with something along the lines of "It's better than the Bay films, at least"?

No, he just went on and on about how great the cartoons were for being action packed, having great designs and knowing who they were aiming the show at. I could actually hear him choking on Sunbow's junk.

And yeah, last I checked he loved the films for being great popcorn flicks but now he wants to take the high road by trashing them and talking about thie cartoon crapping rainbows and heart shaped candy.

But...

That's the same formula the Bay movies have! Action, great designs and they knew who they were aiming the films at.

Yep.

I'm really not a fan of this pandering.There is SO much to pick on in that show. If you wanna end it by saying how much you loved it then do so but don't make a bland video about nothing for your series of comedic reviews of bad material.

The worst part of it all is Doug has previously said he was a not-caring-too-much-about-Transformers-I-was-too-old-when-it-came-out type guy, so this gushing comes WAY out of left field.

Such a shame. I was really looking forward to The Critics' "Transformers Cartoon" review & it winds up just another way to bash on the live-action films.

"Turtles" didn't get a free pass because he hated the Imagi film. "Superman" wasn't considered weaker because it didn't have Christopher Reeve. But the Robots are automatically better as a cartoon. hug that.

And what exactly was doing the review as Optimus Prime supposed to add to the experience???

Technically, Mike Michaud owns TGWTG, and apparently video management on the site isn't done by Doug. I've noticed this a lot, not just with Doug but with others, when the stuff is posted to Blip/their blogs/their personal websites well before showing up on TGWTG.com.
