I watched L.I.L.Y.Cat on there a while back, it was surprisingly good.

@  Steevy Maximus : (21 February 2020 - 08:47 PM)

@Dekafox, no DTP, but they DO have LILY Cat ;)

Ahh. I remember watching Bubblegum Crisis 2020 or whatever.

@  Dekafox : (21 February 2020 - 06:25 PM)

Next you'll say they have Dominion Tank Police and L.I.L.Y.Cat

@  NotVeryKnightly : (21 February 2020 - 06:06 PM)

Bubblegum Crisis, going by several shouts down.

@  Telly : (21 February 2020 - 02:31 PM)

harlock is on tubi as well. not dubbed though :(

@  Rhinox42 : (21 February 2020 - 01:19 PM)

Blugh, the english dub of BGC is atrocious.

@  wonko the sane? : (21 February 2020 - 07:02 AM)

I might need to update my software, or they face regional limitations, cause I found no evidence of either.

@  Steevy Maximus : (20 February 2020 - 10:31 PM)

DUDE! Starcom and COPS are on Tubi too!

@  Steevy Maximus : (20 February 2020 - 09:29 PM)

Spiffy! The english dub of Bubblegum Crisis on Tubi. It's gotten so hard to find these oldies on modern streaming services.

@  TheMightyMol... : (19 February 2020 - 03:53 PM)

Oh boy, here we go.

@  ▲ndrusi : (19 February 2020 - 02:34 PM)

Or do Japan's cultural values vary depending on exactly who you're trying to shut down?

@  ▲ndrusi : (19 February 2020 - 02:33 PM)

Could it be that, perhaps, these different cultural values might lead to a different approach seeming appropriate?

@  ▲ndrusi : (19 February 2020 - 02:32 PM)

Hm. Back when we were arguing about the Legends comic, I seem to recall being repeatedly told that Japan had different cultural values than the US (and therefore anyone who had a problem with anything at all was wrong to voice that opinion ever).

@  fourteenwings : (19 February 2020 - 07:23 AM)

Plus, as much as I hate to admit it, every single anime character is built to suit the audience's tastes so they buy more merch/do other things that allow $$$ to flow in the production committees direction, so the authenticity is certainly not for representation's sake.

@  fourteenwings : (19 February 2020 - 07:18 AM)

Both those anime air at midnight and are aimed at a very specific audience in a whole other media landscape. Major projects have press releases about almost everything, and there are groups just waiting to pat anybody on the back for doing what they want (GLAAD, HRC, etc)

@  B-Fox : (19 February 2020 - 03:16 AM)

It's funny that a friggin' anime about zombie idols and an anime about a school of anthropomorphic animals can have really positive trans characters WITHOUT a press release about their inclusion in the series prior to the episodes airing or having the creators announcing it on social media and patting themselves on the back for doing a thing.

@  TriBlurr : (18 February 2020 - 10:26 PM)

Vegan meat needs bacon

@  Paladin : (18 February 2020 - 08:43 PM)

vegan meat must taste delicious. they're grass-fed and regularly exercised....

@  wonko the sane? : (18 February 2020 - 06:57 PM)

Vegans are better than kids if you don't talk to them. They'll keep the lawn trimmed anyway.

@  TheMightyMol... : (18 February 2020 - 06:02 PM)

Do you want vegans? Because that's how you get vegans.

@  CORVUS : (18 February 2020 - 04:33 PM)

Hook up your sprinkler system to a canister of healthy organic carrot-juice. The kids won't be able to get off your lawn fast enough.

@  TheMightyMol... : (18 February 2020 - 03:59 PM)

Just use the hose.

@  wonko the sane? : (18 February 2020 - 03:52 PM)

Ask bing. It'll be a FAR more effective answer.

@  TrnsfrmGod : (18 February 2020 - 03:26 PM)

Google, how do I get those durned kids off my lawn?

@  TrnsfrmGod : (18 February 2020 - 03:26 PM)

Please ignore.  Old man here apparently doesn't know the difference between the "Search" field and the "Shoutbox" field.

 

Also doesn't know how to delete from the shoutbox

@  wonko the sane? : (18 February 2020 - 07:33 AM)

Huhn. Penny arcade was right, the division 2 is literally 3 dollars...

@  Steevy Maximus : (17 February 2020 - 11:05 PM)

Oh, Wicked Cool Toys got the Halo toy license. This is a big year for Jazwares

@  Steevy Maximus : (17 February 2020 - 07:02 PM)

iTunes/Apple TV has the complete Cowboy Bebop series for just $5!

@  fourteenwings : (17 February 2020 - 12:41 AM)

The Samsung Galaxy B-TOOM!

@  Paladin : (16 February 2020 - 07:20 PM)

business is booming.

@  wonko the sane? : (16 February 2020 - 06:49 PM)

SAmsung has you covered. Exploding phones.

@  Patch : (16 February 2020 - 05:21 PM)

Modern problems require modern solutions.

@  NotVeryKnightly : (16 February 2020 - 05:21 PM)

Japan seems to have a tradition of murder things where cellphones facilitate the killing instead. Like King's Game and Doubt.

@  TheMightyMol... : (16 February 2020 - 05:17 PM)

Or there's just conveniently no reception, or all of their phones are dead at the same time. Or they're just stupid and forget about them.

@  Patch : (16 February 2020 - 04:41 PM)

Now the slasher villain has to go and knock over the nearest cell tower before butchering horny teenagers.

Canberra City- Target: Combiner Wars: All Wave 1 Legends, Wave 1 Deluxes except Alpha-Bravo (lots of Dragstrips), Voyagers Optimus and Silverbolt.

 

Y'know, a week or two after I despaired at seeing them on shelf and ordered them off BBTS. Probably cheaper though.

Parramatta Toys R Us in the Westgate Shopping Center had CW Silverbolt, Dragstrip, Firefly, Bombshell, and Windcharger. There was a space for the leader class assortment as well.

They also had all the first wave RiD deluxes.

Apparently Super Toyworld in Fyshwick, Canberra, has Stunticons (except Motormaster for now) and the Protectobots. Which is weird because the garbled email I got from Hasbro seemed to indicate those toys wouldn't come out in Australia until Christmas. Gonna go check it out on Saturday.

Fyshwick Protectobots deliciously confirmed. I was served by a guy who knew his TF stuff, who said they're expecting Motormaster, Hot Spot and Cyclonus soon. I told him I'd heard Hasbro wasn't releasing these guys here for a while, and he confirmed that they'd had to work around that for the wave 3 deluxes (not sure how). He had no idea that Devastator was already out at Big W. They'd been trying to get the bug guy from Hasbro but didn't know why it wasn't working.

 

No sign of the last couple of waves of Legends sadly.

Yeah I went in today. Down to a few Protectobots, and tons of Wave 1 stuff except for Leader Megatron (though about eight Armada Megatrons). Kind of annoying that apparently those have to sell down before new stuff can be ordered. I mean, I know why they do that,but I just wish the first wave didn't always get so over-ordered because they always do.

Protectobot deluxes sighted in Belconnen Toys R Us. One each of Blades, First Aid, and Rook. No sign of other Protectobots of other sizes or Streetwise.

CW Hot Spot sighted at Kmart in Belconnen.

 

Unite Warriors Superion seen at Toys'R'Us, also in Belconnen. I was surprised. And then completely put off by the $400 price tag. Sheesh...

RID Warrior Fracture and a couple of his redeco wavemates at the Toyworld in Highpoint.


On rare occasions, I have something to say.

Not that anyone but me cares, but some smaller Titan Returns stuff has turned up at Toys'r'us in Canberra. Rewind and Stripes, Crashbash, Terri-bull and Loudmouth at Mildura Park.

I always forget we have sightings threads here too -- I tend to go by OTCA.

The first wave of stuff is finally trickling out, and Toyworld in Fyshwick had several Soundwaves when I was there a week or two back.

Meanwhile TRU Belconnen had Alpha Trion and Astrotrain this morning, but apparently they sold quickly.

Toyworld Carindale had a ton of TR wave 1 and 2 Voyagers. They also had a single case of wave 1 deluxes. They also had a few Platinum sets.

The real bargain was the Optimus Prime Evolution 2 pack, containing Classics Prime and AOE Evasion Prime. The price? A bargain at only $39.99!

Big W is suddenly burning off ENORMOUS quantities of Titans Return stuff: http://www.otca.com....ead.php?t=25586

 

Stock varies from store to store but Octone/Blitzwing and Seaspray/Cosmos are common. Legends at $5, Deluxes at $10, Voyagers $15. Crazy! Not sure if there are any Leaders about. 

 

The sale isn't supposed to start until July 5, but in many stores the stock is on shelves and the sale prices are already in effect. I saw a wall of over 100 each of Cosmos and Seaspray - I don't think I've ever seen anything like that in Australia. Given the volume of product, they may not be shelved in the usual TF area so you may have to hunt around a bit!

Well I checked my local Big W and it's all Octone/Blotz/Seasproy/Cosmas. I wonder why it's only them?

Yeah, it's weird. There are other floating around, stores seem to have one wave or another of legends and deluxe but not toys from multiple waves. And AFAIK Blitzwing and Octone are the only Voyagers involved.

Wave 3 Power of the Primes deluxes (so the other Terrorcons) are around in Canberra (well, Belconnen). Kind of annoying that Wave 2 deluxes seems to have skipped.

 

Got my complete Abominus at least.
