Yeah, polling these days is garbage.

@  Pennpenn : (18 May 2019 - 06:45 AM)

You know, this election is what has finally broken me of any confidence at any point of pre-polling data. I mean, it's always been sketchy, but this is just... aaaargh!

@  Pennpenn : (18 May 2019 - 06:08 AM)

I was going to make an Auspol election thread in P&R, but the outcome so far has made me feel physically ill.

I have heard that, it's rather disappointing. Ah, maybe they'll just leech each others stores of "awful racist vote" and not go anywhere.

@  TM2-Megatron : (16 May 2019 - 02:29 PM)

I was just talking cheesy in a dated filmmaking sense, not mind-bogglingly god-awful.

@  Sabrblade : (16 May 2019 - 11:49 AM)

Well, certainly The Last Airbender is worse at being a Superman movie.

@  TheMightyMol... : (16 May 2019 - 11:31 AM)

Is that better or worse than The Last Airbender? I mean, they're both terrible, but....

@  RichardT1977 : (16 May 2019 - 09:28 AM)

And the worst Superman movie is "Dragonball: Evolution".

@  Paladin : (16 May 2019 - 08:01 AM)

the best Superman movie is "The Iron Giant." You cannot convince me otherwise.

@  RichardT1977 : (15 May 2019 - 10:16 PM)

At least even in the first Christopher Reeve movie, when he caught Lois that first time, the background kept scrolling down for a second to indicate it wasn't a sudden stop.

@  TM2-Megatron : (15 May 2019 - 10:10 PM)

I guess you had to have been there. I did like the beginning a lot, though; the stuff on Krypton and in Smallville. The movie just got so cheesy once it got to Metropolis, though, it's kind of painful

@  Sean Whitmore : (15 May 2019 - 06:25 PM)

The performances, the cinematography, the significance of a comic book adaptation being treated like a real movie. Silly stuff like that. :)

@  TM2-Megatron : (15 May 2019 - 05:17 PM)

Yeah, I've never really understood what people loved so much about it. Other than the score, of course, which was one of Williams' finest

@  Paladin : (15 May 2019 - 04:06 PM)

and it's not even the dumbest part in that movie.

@  TM2-Megatron : (15 May 2019 - 03:16 PM)

Flying Lois around was fine; it was all the Can You Read My Mind nonsense that ruined the scene

@  Sabrblade : (15 May 2019 - 12:08 PM)

The recent Shazam! movie had Billy bumbling his way through learning his powers. But all or most of it was genuinely funny.

@  RichardT1977 : (15 May 2019 - 11:27 AM)

But yeah, in retrospect it makes me cringe the way he caught and carried the helicopter in his public debut in the first film...

@  RichardT1977 : (15 May 2019 - 11:25 AM)

(she wasn't in III long enough to be flown around)

@  RichardT1977 : (15 May 2019 - 11:25 AM)

You mean the Donner movie, the Donner/Lester movie, and The Quest for Peace (for which I don't know the director)?

@  unluckiness : (15 May 2019 - 11:09 AM)

At least he didn't try to fly lois around like in the Donner movies.

@  Cybersnark : (15 May 2019 - 10:45 AM)

My favourite is still from the first episode of the 90s Superman animated series, where Clark initially tries to catch the falling plane by its tail... which snaps off in his hands because physics doesn't work that way.

@  MEDdMI : (15 May 2019 - 09:46 AM)

I think it'd be boring if a hero could use their powers perfectly right off the bat and not have any unforseen consequences (though I also don't keep up with a lot of superhero stuff, so not familiar with those scenes)

@  Dekafox : (15 May 2019 - 09:23 AM)

Overseas, Kamen Rider Gaim did something similar after Kouta(the main character) got his transformation belt. He tried to do a whole bunch of mundane things with it cause he thought it'd make him better at them and they all go horribly wrong.

@  Paladin : (15 May 2019 - 08:59 AM)

superspeed causes enormous friction on fabric. the 1990 Flash had the same issue and it was mentioned in "The Incredibles" too...

@  fourteenwings : (15 May 2019 - 08:45 AM)

Arrow didn't have one (though Oliver got hurt a lot in flashbacks), Supergirl already had her powers, LoT gang also already had their powers mostly and in Black Lightning discovering your powers seems to be more associated with emotional trauma than anything comedic

@  fourteenwings : (15 May 2019 - 08:43 AM)

In the Arrowverse shows... I guess The Flash accidentally ran so fast he shredded his clothes? (totally not a chance to showcase Grant Gustin's "I'm not Glee kid anymore!" physique)

Lord, 'reese, I'm sorry I never noticed you asked a question until now. icon-wildride.gif *begs forgiveness*

The main reason I've taken to collecting Beast-only Transformers is that when I started collecting back in '84, the main reason I loved the G1 guys was because of the realistic vehicle modes. It's the reason I love the Alternators so much right now. Towards the end of G1, the vehicle modes started looking pretty cartoony... animated... unrealistic, for lack of a better term. It's the same kind of aesthetic that we had during Armada and Energon (for the most part). So, I stopped collecting around that time.

I still kept an occasional eye on what was going on, looking at stuff in the stores. I heard about a Transformers series starting up called 'Beast Wars', and how it was supposed to start everything from scratch. I thought I'd check it out.

I fell in love instantly. The characters, the premise, the story, the animation...it was all beautiful. Plus, the toys were (and still are) awesome. I had also kind of felt like G1 had been tapped out, thematically and story-wise, and that there was so much untapped story potential for the Maximals and Predacons. I still feel that way today. Every so often we get a glimpse of what was going on back on Beast-era Cybertron, and I just want so much more.

So, I just collect Beastformers now as a kind of extension of my love for Beast Wars. I'm not a G1 hater or anything. Quite the contrary, I love it when Cybertronian history is referenced in relation to Maximal/Predacon society and such. I just feel like it's time to move on.

I just noticed that in the first two pics, you've instituted your own Great Upgrade via repolables, but you didn't turn the Universe Bots/Cons into Maxis/Preds. Why not?

In some cases, I did. There's a few Universe beasts who've had their Autobot/Decepticon sparks replaced with Maximal/Predacon sparks from...er...willing volunteers...yeah, that's it.

For sparks I couldn't reach without damaging the figure *looks at Skydive*, I just let them be because I'm not sure how good a sticker will look on a spark.

Ideally, I would have liked to use Beast Machines Maximal symbols, but Reprolabels doesn't make them anymore, and it'd cost around $25 for them to do a sheet for me. Not terrible, just a little more than I'd like for a sticker set.

Good call on that; I once applied a sticker to Universe Skywarp's spark, and it...just looks bad.

I didn't even think of spark crystals, to be honest; I was just thinking of the symbols on the body of the toy.

Great collection! I, too, am a beast fan. Used to have a lot more, but I trimmed my collection here and there as space requirements demanded.

Your Nightscream looks *small*. I was under the impression he was a much larger figure, like the same size as Ultra Jetstorm. Repainted bootleg?

He is indeed a bootleg, but he isn't repainted. That's actually how he came. His plastic quality is less than ideal, and his joints were crazy loose, but he's a sight better than the Ultra-sized monster we got. icon-kicker.gif
