nobody here has moved past Wave 1. maybe if they hadn't crammed it with repaints....

@  Noideaforaname : (25 June 2017 - 06:46 AM)

Nitro's gonna be a pain in the butt to find, isn't he?

@  Pennpenn : (25 June 2017 - 03:51 AM)

Actually, on the subject of TLK toys, the voyager Nitro Zues or whatver looks pretty good. If I see it cheap I might give it to the Thunderwing head.

@  Pennpenn : (24 June 2017 - 09:58 PM)

Been playing a bit of Saints Row 4 and honestly the Blast Blast is hilariously overpowered.

@  Rycochet : (24 June 2017 - 05:28 PM)

And a better headsculpt.

@  unluckiness : (24 June 2017 - 05:23 PM)

It actually has half decent gimmicks too.

@  TheMightyMol... : (24 June 2017 - 04:03 PM)

It's still crap but at least it takes up less space.

@  Rycochet : (24 June 2017 - 10:31 AM)

I'd rather have Armada Sideswipe than Alternator Sideswipe.

@  Tm_Silverclaw : (24 June 2017 - 09:50 AM)

What he's really doing is buying all the sideswipe, so that after the apocolypse.. He'll have an army to take ove the world!

@  unluckiness : (24 June 2017 - 09:00 AM)

We could be taking this the wrong way. What if this person means to sacrifice their own money to prevent Armada Sideswipes from falling into the hands of those who don't know better?

@  Rycochet : (24 June 2017 - 06:26 AM)

People say silly things online all the time, usually followed by a smilie or a wink. Take away the context and they go from being a joke to absurd hyperbole.

@  TheMightyMol... : (24 June 2017 - 06:07 AM)

But that would miss the entire point of hyperbole.

@  Pennpenn : (24 June 2017 - 06:03 AM)

Well that's a stupid attitude from someone who would waste a lot of money. I mean, they should just... not buy movie toys?

@  Bass X0 : (24 June 2017 - 04:52 AM)

Most insane thing I read of the day: "I would rather buy 100 Armada Sideswipes and PRiD Airachnids than buy any Bayformers crap"

@  Nevermore : (23 June 2017 - 06:10 PM)

His dialogue is full of allusions to his infamous lookalike, though sometimes as subversions. Oh, and sometimes he sings Karaoke. Check his rendition of "My Way", it's on Youtube.

@  Nevermore : (23 June 2017 - 06:09 PM)

The entire idea behind the character is that he looks and talks like Hitler, but is actually a good guy. Maybe with a dickish attitude, but he's not the villain.

@  Nevermore : (23 June 2017 - 06:08 PM)

Alfons Hatler is a supporting character from a German Edgar Wallace parody movie and its sequel.

@  Nevermore : (23 June 2017 - 06:07 PM)

I'd like to remind everyone that Alfons Hatler exists, which is all sorts of awesome.

@  wonko the sane? : (23 June 2017 - 05:41 PM)

See, you say that and you know there's new a bubsy game coming. Don't make us keep re-baselining our horror reactions.

@  Sean Whitmore : (23 June 2017 - 03:31 PM)

Epilogue is the worst thing to happen to mankind. And I'm including, like, all the wars and stuff.

@  Evac : (23 June 2017 - 02:11 PM)

... Did Linkara cover that one?

@  Paladin : (23 June 2017 - 01:50 PM)

the comics where Barbara quit being Batgirl after she was beaten into a miscarriage.

@  Boomhauer : (23 June 2017 - 01:20 PM)

His choice to be Batman had more punch when he was a completely normal guy met with the same dillema instead of the DNA garbage that muddies the message for no other reason than to give Old Bruce another ass-kiss before the show is over. It's a boring episode whose entire concept is repeating things already known and spark Squawkbox arguments.

@  The Predaking : (23 June 2017 - 01:11 PM)

But he still chose to be batman. Not only did he chose to be batman, he did it better.

@  Tm_Silverclaw : (23 June 2017 - 12:46 PM)

I have to agree.. Part of the problem with Epilogue is it takes away from "Terry CHOSE to be batman" and changed it a bit to "Terry was designed to be batman."

@  NotVeryKnightly : (23 June 2017 - 12:13 PM)

Do you mean the DCAU continuity comics or Future's End?

@  Paladin : (23 June 2017 - 11:36 AM)

can we all at least agree it's a better ending for Batman Beyond than the comics?

@  wonko the sane? : (23 June 2017 - 10:52 AM)

There was no evidence of it to support it in the show, and generally using someone to MAKE a batman is a jerkish thing to do.

@  Benbot : (23 June 2017 - 10:37 AM)

why does it matter?

@  Tm_Silverclaw : (23 June 2017 - 10:25 AM)

I think the problem with Epilogue was making Terry effectivly Batman's son.

@  Benbot : (23 June 2017 - 10:24 AM)

what's your problem with it?

@  The Predaking : (23 June 2017 - 10:02 AM)

Epilogue give a great end to Batman Beyond and even has a Mask of the Phantasm character

@  MrBlud : (23 June 2017 - 09:55 AM)

I don't post in the Shoutbox often, but when I do, it's to confirm "Epilogue" is garbage.

@  Paladin : (23 June 2017 - 08:43 AM)

even "Epilogue" ? (braces for that argument again)

@  The Predaking : (23 June 2017 - 08:26 AM)

Its a really great show.

@  wonko the sane? : (23 June 2017 - 06:16 AM)

Yeah, miles is only used when accuracy doesn't actually matter, or we're dealing with americans.

@  Nevermore : (23 June 2017 - 03:55 AM)

We even use "miles" in similar contexts in German even though we use kilometers for actual measurements.

@  The Doctor Who : (23 June 2017 - 02:40 AM)

Makes sense, really. Colloquialisms exist in their own weird little universe where terminology can persist after it's no longer relevant otherwise.

@  abates : (23 June 2017 - 01:17 AM)

We also measure car milage in kilometres but still call it milage.

@  Bass X0 : (22 June 2017 - 05:47 PM)

No. We still say miles. Kilometers is only really used for actual specific distances whereas miles being used in a common phrase is still miles.

@  SHIELD Agent 47 : (22 June 2017 - 04:59 PM)

People from outside the U.S.: as we are all English-proficient here, do you ever use the phrase "I saw it coming from miles away.", or do you say "kilometers" instead?

@  Hg Dragon : (22 June 2017 - 04:06 PM)

Wow, that was supposed to :shout" hours ago...

@  Hg Dragon : (22 June 2017 - 04:05 PM)

Indeed. Especially on opening week. We're talking avg, 5-8%. It's more at your discount/sub-run houses.

@  Steevy Maximus : (22 June 2017 - 10:25 AM)

AMC knows it, freakin $7 for a regular drink

@  Paladin : (22 June 2017 - 08:22 AM)

and if you want to support your theaters, buy more concessions. because they get SHIT from the ticket sales...

@  Hg Dragon : (22 June 2017 - 08:15 AM)

So, we charged an extra $1 per. F'em

@  Hg Dragon : (22 June 2017 - 08:13 AM)

First, they threatened to stop sending us digital because we weren't upcharging for it (back when we were still "mixed" format). Then they threatened to stop sendingus 3D because we didn't upcharge for those either initially.

I believe they might've shown up in one of the Japanese Kre-O comics, and thus will at some point have (Kre-O) pages too.

So, this is more for Abates than anyone else... Are we adding continuity designators to every page now or something?

 

I'm assuming I'm missing some other reason why Gra and Ida were called out with (Prime) continuity identifiers?

Gra and Ida have non-Prime Kre-O counterparts.

"The Molecule Immobilizer"

 

(PREMISE)

 

Wheeljack is working on a device which can freeze a

 

molecule's action, literally stopping a moving object in its
 
tracks, leaving it immobile. Through the spying of Soundwave
 
and Reflector, the Decepticons are well aware of this
 
development.
 

The Autobots take the gun out into the forest for a test.

 
Wheeljack aims it at a tree and the tree becomes immobile. Spike
 
tries to break a leaf off and can't. The air molecules of the
 
surface of the tree have been frozen from motion, changing the
 
substance of the tree into one as hard as rock. Spike wants to
 
know what it would be like to be immobile, but Wheeljack tells
 
him it would be fatal to a human since it stops the flow of blood
 
to the brain. Suddenly, the tree comes back to life. It seems
 
the effect is only temporary.
 

Ironhide, who is supposed to be standing guard, has become

 
interested in the experiments and all at once, the Autobots are
 
overrun by the Decepticons. Several Autobots are seriously
 
damaged and the Decepticons get away with the molecule gun.
 

Back at Autobot headquarters, Ironhide takes full blame for

 
the attack and thinking he has become too old to be useful
 
anymore, retires himself from active service, much to Prime's

Checking my BW Omnibus, the first mentioning of the planet's name in the Sourcebook that I can find is under Galvatron's "Weapons/Abilities" section:

 

Showing uncanny prescience, Galvatron was one of the very first 'new' Cybertronains to adopt a beast mode. He chose a species of dragon from the planet Gaea, largely because of its fearsome reputation as a hunter. In this mode, Galvatron possesses a system for ingesting base metals and turning them into a searing molten jet, which could be spat at enemies. Also derived from Gaea's datafiles, his vehicular mode was a drill tank, with an explosive projectile bit. In Robot Mode, Galvatron utilized a claw/jaw ballistic weapon. His preferences was to seize his victim and execute them at close range.

 

And there's also the Glossary entry for the planet itself in the very back of the book:

 

Gaea:

A planet located in sector C-16 of Cybertronian space, Gaea possessed an unusually high amount of Angolmois energy and thus attracted the attention of would-be despot, Galvatron. Gaea is a very Earth-like planet filled with forests, swamps, and wide areas of frozen tundra. While animals and nature rule this world, the Maximals discovered scattered pieces of technology on the planet, indicating that at one time the world had been inhabited by a technologically advanced race. Gaea has two moons, one of which served as an observation post for Celestial observers Artemis and Moon.

While normally I wouldn't be so quick to trust other sources over on-screen text, we're talking about an English word written by non-English speakers. There's a LOT of animation errors out there that are just some poor animator trying to write a street sign in letters they don't know.

 

"Gaea" and "Gaia" are both accepted spellings, although "Gaea" is vastly more common. Still though, the most likely thing is that someone tried to spell it and got it wrong (or "wrong" in this instance).

That's not actually at issue here; in this particular instance, we're stuck with the "Gaea" spelling because that's how it appeared in an English-language work (i.e. the Sourcebook), which we've also defaulted to for characters (Lio Convoy over Leo Prime, most famously, but also Autocrasher over Autocrusher).
 

"Gaea" and "Gaia" are both accepted spellings, although "Gaea" is vastly more common.

Gaea: 888,000 results

 

The Wikipedia article for the goddess is also at Gaia, but I don't know how diagnostic that is.
