He dubbed the peoples that saw him as bad news cannibals and savages before enslaving and wiping them out too.

@  wonko the sane? : (14 October 2019 - 01:40 PM)

And if they had been unfriendly: he would have simply slaughtered them with diseases they couldn't fight, and technology they couldn't match until they as a people did not exist. There's something about european backgrounds that drive us to exploit.

@  Rycochet : (14 October 2019 - 11:02 AM)

He described the peoples he encountered as some of the most friendly and giving in the world, so naturally, he ate all their food, enslaved them and put them to work looking for gold that did not exist, until they as a people did not exist.

he landed by coincidence in front of long-term residents.

He said the world was round-o! (He said the world was round-o!) He said it could be found-o! (He said it could be found-o!) That hypothetical, calculated, son-of-a-gun, Columbo! (That hypothetical, calculated, son-of-a-gun, Columbo!)

In the year 1492, Columbus gave us the day off skoo

@  Noideaforaname : (14 October 2019 - 08:59 AM)

How often do people actually celebrate Columbus or the Pilgrims? Usually it just feels like celebrating the first break in the school year and a nice dinner with the family.

Each part of a combiner is a complete toy in itself, so no, not really.

@  PlutoniumBoss : (03 October 2019 - 06:47 PM)

Aren't combiners technically BAFs?

@  Rycochet : (03 October 2019 - 02:16 PM)

The Anniversary Beast Wars figures had BAF parts over a decade ago, the minicons of RiD2 had BAF stuff too, heck, the Takara PVC line had Build A Figures back in the early 2000s.

@  Paladin : (03 October 2019 - 01:35 PM)

can't believe Build A Figures finally came to Transformers...

Necromance because news:

 

http://deadline.com/...ook-1201716558/

 

 

EXCLUSIVE: Cult live-action comedy The Tick is making a comeback. Amazon has ordered a pilot for a new take on Ben Edlund‘s comic book character. Edlund, who created the 2001 lbenedlundive-action Fox comedy as well as the 1994 animated series, is back as writer and executive producer as is fellow original exec producer Barry Josephson. Griffin Newman (Vinyl) is set to play Arthur Everest, and Valorie Curry (House of Lies, The Following) has been cast as his sister Dot Everest in the pilot. I hear Transcendence helmer Wally Pfister is in negotiations to direct. Sony Pictures TV, the studio behind the 2001 series, is producing.

 
tickcastThe revival has been in the works for a while — in the summer of 2014, Edlund confirmed that there was an effort to bring the show back when rumors surfaced about a possible new Tick series at Amazon with Edlund returning alongside Patrick Warburton, who played the title character on the Fox series. Warburton, who stars on NBC’s new comedy series Crowded, is not expected to be involved in the Amazon pilot. Casting is currently underway for the lead. 
 
The reboot will bring back the eponymous muscle-bound, antennae-sporting superhero, along with his sidekick Arthur (Newman), surrounded by a new host of characters. (The Fox series co-starred Liz Vassey as Captain Liberty and Nestor Carbonell as Batmanuel.)
 
In the new incarnation, the blue suit-wearing Tick is recovering from a memory loss. He ends up re-teaming with Arthur to fight evil. Newman’s Arthur, played in the Fox series by David Burke, had been labeled as a schizophrenic because of his statements that evil plans to rule the city, and no one believes him until he runs into Tick. Curry’s Dot Everest is a nurse who loves her brother Arthur to death and worries about him. 

 

Emphasis mine. Warburton is busy and probably too old, but I have to say, he's always been the only actor who was exactly right for the role. Obviously Ben Edlund is key, but without Warburton, my anticipation is definitely tempered.

Ehhh, we had a Tick show before Warburton. If the casting gods are kind it could work. Tricky to ace but not impossible.

While Warburton's casting in the 2001 series was pure genius, all we really need is a big guy with a deep voice and a sense of comedic timing.

With any luck Warburton could show up in a guest spot as Barry Hubris.

Maybe I'm crazy but I found Warburton difficult to see as the Tick. Too low-key for me, I guess. I'm actually more excited by this now!

For me it was the exposed eyes. I know we're only just getting into expressive superhero masks in live action media now, and it would have been impossible on a TV budget back then, but still. Just threw the whole thing off for me.

Well, I'd say we're getting the British equivalent, 'cause the confirmed casting choice is Peter Serafinowicz. He's got a hell of a range, so I think he can pull it off.

American.

 

I only know him from Shaun of the Dead, so I don't have any feelings towards or against him... but he's definitely not what I expected.

I'll judge it when I see it. I would rather have the tone of the live action series than the tone of the cartoon, though.

First images.

 

Patrick Warburton's costume wasn't great.  I'm not sure this is much better.  I'm glad they gave him a mask to cover his eyes, but the texture and details are kind of off-putting.  I guess they're going for an insect exoskeleton look?

 

Regardless, I'm gonna watch the hell out of it.

I think overall, I prefer the old series' costume, as other  then missing the masked eyes it feels closer to the comic look then this does. Also I'm not sure I like the actor the choose, since his build just... doesn't feel right either, at the very least he's missing that big strong jaw that both the comic/cartoon and Warburton had. At the moment it kinda feels like Arthur dressed up as the Tick... 

 

I'm not against this, and I'm still looking forward to it as in the end if the writing and personality is there; that's what really matters... just the look so far isn't that inspiring.
