The Toyota logo spells Toyota. That's hardly stupid.

@  Benbot : (25 April 2018 - 09:59 AM)

Toyota has a stupid logo. Who's with me?

@  Paladin : (24 April 2018 - 07:16 PM)

so Crosshairs is basically Marcus Fenix? same VA anyway...

@  TheMightyMol... : (24 April 2018 - 06:28 PM)

Would be. Yeah.

@  wonko the sane? : (24 April 2018 - 04:50 PM)

Million years of war... you'd be one too.

@  TheMightyMol... : (24 April 2018 - 03:41 PM)

So in other words, they're psychopaths.

@  Sabrblade : (24 April 2018 - 02:01 PM)

And only Optimus was angry. Hound and Crosshairs were happy jerks. They loved killing because killing gave them pleasure.

@  TheMightyMol... : (24 April 2018 - 11:54 AM)

It was AoE, they were all jerks.

@  Broadside : (24 April 2018 - 11:09 AM)

I like his design. I think I've entirely blotted his personality out of my memory.

@  Shrug : (24 April 2018 - 06:53 AM)

Thats part of why I like the AoE/TLK bot crew so much. They seem like the angry jerks that'd actually survive in an extended war.

@  PlutoniumBoss : (24 April 2018 - 01:01 AM)

I dislike him despite the trenchcoat. He's a jerk, and not the lovable kind. One note, and that note is douchebag.

@  Cybersnark : (23 April 2018 - 04:47 PM)

Honestly, I like him DESPITE the "trenchcoat." I prefer to keep it folded behind him like some Gundam-style flight-pack.

@  SHIELD Agent 47 : (23 April 2018 - 11:04 AM)

People really love movieverse Crosshairs sheerly for the sake of his trenchcoat, don't they?

@  Plokatron : (22 April 2018 - 10:17 PM)

@RichardT1977 @TM2-Megatron I'm not normally one to pull the Ruined Forever card but I care less than zip about anything involving the 2017 Power Rangers movie! They screwed it up worse than Bay past DoTM and a Mastodon has four legs not six! While I'm on this mini rant anyone remember the scans of the Super Sentai Mecha book from a while back? Would it be against the rules to ask if anyone knows where to find the new updated book scanned? I really want the Concept Art for ideas.

@  D Immortalis : (22 April 2018 - 03:39 PM)

@  Steevy Maximus : (21 April 2018 - 08:51 PM)

The first Transformers live action film really IS a lot better than what popular culture has made it out to be.

@  TM2-Megatron : (21 April 2018 - 08:27 PM)

I dunno if I'd go that far. I enjoyed the first Bayformers more than the MMPR Movie remake

@  RichardT1977 : (21 April 2018 - 08:22 PM)

For the record, it was better than the (live-action) Transformers movies.

@  wonko the sane? : (21 April 2018 - 08:21 PM)

No, I wasn't at the krispy kreme when I beat them. Wait, what?

@  Paladin : (21 April 2018 - 08:13 PM)

@  Sabrblade : (20 April 2018 - 11:14 PM)

Eh, I guess. He did fairly well on his own as an independent in his first appearance and such.

@  Otaku : (20 April 2018 - 10:04 PM)

@Sabrblade Vulture tends to fare poorly as his own boss. Working for a great version of Doc Ock ain't a bad gig... and I did ask if about "bad" as opposed to "not the best". ;)

@  Plokatron : (20 April 2018 - 09:53 PM)

@Egon1982 No my friend Mutator Spiders as in get caught in their web and you are mutated into a even more animalistic creature than you were. Hordika were Half Sentient beings half Wild animal and unlike Spiderman it affected each race slightly differnt with Toa being of a similar mutation to each other. My guess for Spiderman is he would become more spider like but with a inside skeletal structure hmm wonder what Visorak Venom would do to CNA make Dinobot Predacon like monsters or something wild?!

@  Paladin : (20 April 2018 - 04:15 PM)

compared to the "youth-sucking" gimmick from the other series? BIG step up.

@  Sabrblade : (20 April 2018 - 03:57 PM)

@Otaku: What about that show's take on Vulture? He had potential at first but he eventually just settled into being a lackey rather than his own boss.

@  Egon1982 : (20 April 2018 - 02:44 PM)

Did anyone else thought Thunder in Big Trouble in Little China when he was inflating looked like a garbage pail kid before he blew up into salad? I always thought that since seeing the movie in theaters at age 5. 

@  Egon1982 : (20 April 2018 - 02:25 PM)

Mutator spiders as in man-spider?

@  Otaku : (20 April 2018 - 11:06 AM)

Shocker was a pretty good villain in The Spectacular Spider-Man animated series. Wait, does that count since I can't think of a bad take on any character from that series? ;)

@  Arazyr : (20 April 2018 - 09:26 AM)

Ontario/Detroit area? Yeah. Supposedly, you could feel it from where I live, but I didn't notice. I never feel these things. 8(

Webhead Vs. Mutater Spiders. Hmmm I can see this ending badly with HordikaMan Hey maybe it'd make Venom catchable with spider sense.

@  Broadside : (19 April 2018 - 09:16 PM)

Can't wait for Spider-Man to fight the Visorak

Im shocked that no one has talked bout this:

 

 

If you haven't already been bombarded by this news, where have you been for the past 12 hours!?

Social media has exploded overnight with comments and tweets about Paul Feig's plans for a new female centric Ghostbusters movie, spurred on by announcements made by Sony Pictures' official social media accounts. Entertainment Weekly also has an interview with the would-be Director where he discusses his vision for a new Ghostbusters movie including rebooting the whole franchise in a completely different universe with female actresses taking the lead. The news also includes the hiring of The Heat's writer Katie Dipplod to work on the script.

Fans have been raising their concerns on social media, such as the Ghostbusters Fans Facebook page and Twitter. Before everyone gets up in arms about this movie, everyone needs to remember this important fact. We have been to this point in "Ghostbusters 3" development several times. It was only a few years ago now that Etan Cohen was hired as the writer with Ivan Reitman directing. A few years before that, it was Lee Eisenberg & Gene Stupnitsky. And for a decade before that, Dan Aykroyd was certain he had the best script for a new Ghostbusters movie.

Before jumping to rash decisions and making a bunch of ignorant comments, let's consider for a second that this doesn't actually put us any closer to a new Ghostbusters movie than we have been before. It might be fun to think about the idea, or dismiss it entirely, but whatever does come out of it will be a positive change for the Ghostbusters franchise.

 

 

From Gbfans.com

 

Seriously, this is devistating. Two movies and an awesome videogame: gone, never happened. Dr. Peter Venkman, Dr. Egon Spengler, and Dr. Ray Stant and Winston Zeddmore: never existed, which means also no unlicenced nuclear accelerator or traps or pke meter.

 

Star Ernie Hudson had this to say:

 

 

“I heard it was going to be a total reboot, and that it would have nothing to do with the other two movies. If it has nothing to do with the other two movies, and it’s all female, then why are you calling it Ghostbusters?” Hudson said, echoing a lot of fans’ opinions we’ve heard this week. But lest he be accused of also echoing a lot of fans’ opinions that other fans wish they would stop expressing, because they’re usually followed by a bunch of sexist bulljive, Hudson made it clear it’s not females he has problem with, per se. In fact, he loves females.

“I love females. I hope that if they go that way at least they’ll be funny, and if they’re not funny at least hopefully it’ll be sexy,” Hudson said of this film starring women who, if they can’t make us laugh, maybe they can work that proton pack realllll nice. Ooh yeah, trap those ectoplasmic entities, stick them in the containment system, set your entry grid, and neutronize your field like the EPA and your momma told you not to, girl. “I love the idea of including women, I think that’s great,” Hudson adds, graciously.

 

 

So am I wrong for being upset?

I don't see why it HAS to be a complete reboot, but I totally support the idea of a female cast. Imagine a bunch of female scientists and psychologists battling the supernatural? Yes, please.

The only thing I'm against is restarting the universe, but since we'll never have the original cast back together I love the all girl cast. BUT I hate that sexy ghost logo you included in the post. Not needed.

The need for accommodation isnít a ďspecial needĒ. Itís a basic human right. Itís a leveling of the playing field that allows us the same opportunities and chances as non-disabled people."

I have no faith in Hollywood to treat an all-female cast with dignity.  But I like the idea.

 

Reboot is meh.  I mean, they can't take the original movie away from us, much like New Star Trek can't ever really replace Old Star Trek.  So if they want to do a fresh start, I have no issue with it.

 

But, you know, the sexy ghost image pretty much spells out why that would be a disaster.  Not because it's a bad idea, but because men still think with their dicks.

 

Also, way to keep it classy there, Hudson.  Way to keep it classy.  *facepalm*

JUst out of curiousity, why?

 

And before anybody jumps to any conclusions, I am not against lady busters. We've had em before. In Real Ghostbusters, Extreme Ghostbusters, and the ongoing IDW comics all had lady busters picking up the wand. Janine, Kyle and Agent Melanie Ortiz were all capable busters. When the director who had done the Movie Bridemaids and the heat talk bout all female busters, this is what I think of:

 

MV5BMTIyMzU4OTE4OF5BMl5BanBnXkFtZTcwNTk2..

 

Melissa McCarty is not someone I wanna see in a jumpsuit.

 

Kristian Wiig I can deal with. When I think of female ghostbuster, I think of Emma Stone, Eliza Dushku, someone who is a strong female.

It's the reboot thing that bugs me more than anything.

 

No problem with the females, though something about all four of them being women just feels like stunt casting to me. Unless they're just doing a full Rule 63 reboot, and we're seeing Raye Stantz, Petra Venkman, Winnie Zeddemore, and Egonia Spengler, with John Melnitz taking calls and Louise Tully keeping books. Then I can totally get behind that.

 

But maybe I'm just partial to the New Ghostbusters comic with Janine, Kylie, Melanie, and Ron.

 

In the end, I'm not pleased with the news of ditching the old canon, but I'll wait and see how this goes and just judge it on its own merit.

Put me in the camp who has no problem with the idea of an all lady Ghostbusters cast, but I'm not so down with the idea of them rebooting the universe. Especially when the existing canon can absolutely accept an all-female team, be it in another city or as a "next generation" type thing.

Oh, Ernie. Good grief.

 

It's hard to believe this film will ever actually exist. If it does... well, why bother throwing out the first two? It's a hundred years later, you don't need a full reboot to justify the new cast. Maybe open with a nice tribute to Harold Ramis and then let the old guys get out of the way while the new bunch get going.

Make it Chicago based, and have these women come into it on their own. They can come across the original team's research while looking up their own stuff. You can even do a meet up with one of the old guard to get that in there, but these charactets should have their own story to play out. It's the only way it'll stand the test of time in its own right.

I'm in with the folks who don't understand the need for the reboot. Given how old the original cast has gotten, and that some of them have passed, how hard would it be to rip of the series intro to extreme ghostbusters, and just have the originals move on and bring in the new blood.

 

And the extended franchise already has lots of strong women characters, old and new. Just don't make it an hour an a half of pointless T&A and sexist uniforms.

You know what? I like the idea, if its set in the old universe, they'll have all the internet stuff to get them started, along with a few "hacked" proton pack and trap schemata.

 

But why the love for chicago? If they gotta set it anywhere, set it in the city that already looks like the world ended: detroit or nothing!
