In that case, I don't see anything wrong with English speakers calling it what it is in English. Even though we technically use the French words for what comes out of it. "Beef", "pork"...

@  Bass X0 : (17 February 2019 - 02:04 PM)

I’d like a Siege Thundercracker who has his regular blue colors Cybertronian jet mode which transforms into a robot mode with his Action Master colors. Looks like it could be possible.

The cow was slaughtered in the abattoir.

@  wonko the sane? : (17 February 2019 - 08:53 AM)

It's not a pretty name: abattoir is literally just the french word for slaughterhouse.

@  PlutoniumBoss : (17 February 2019 - 08:46 AM)

Giving it a pretty name won't make it a pretty place.

@  SHIELD Agent 47 : (17 February 2019 - 02:45 AM)

I do believe there is an aphorism about the U.S.A. and yogurt being different because after 200 years the latter will have a culture.

@  Maruten : (16 February 2019 - 11:30 PM)

There's another word for "abattoir"?! Honestly you people, "slaughterhouse" is a bit on the nose.

@  SHIELD Agent 47 : (16 February 2019 - 10:09 PM)

I learned this week that the French-style term abattoir is prevalent in the UK/Commonwealth in place of where U.S.-American Anglophones would say "slaughterhouse". Fascinating.

@  wonko the sane? : (16 February 2019 - 07:31 AM)

Haven't given it to him yet. Not sure when I will, but soon. Wah Wah is what he calls any vehicle with a siren, and the little bugger just LOVES firetrucks. So I got him a rescue bot heatwave.

@  repowers : (16 February 2019 - 02:41 AM)

Is Verbesserschlimmerung a change that was intented to make things worse but made them better instead?

@  wonko the sane? : (13 February 2019 - 07:35 AM)

We have a similar word in english "government".

@  Nevermore : (13 February 2019 - 06:05 AM)

The meaning of this word is: A change that was intended as an improvement but ended up making things worse.

@  Nevermore : (13 February 2019 - 06:04 AM)

It's a portmanteau of "Verbesserung", which means "improvement", and "Verschlimmerung", which means "worsening".

@  Nevermore : (13 February 2019 - 06:04 AM)

Your new German word for today: Verschlimmbesserung.

@  TM2-Megatron : (12 February 2019 - 02:17 PM)

Fortunately it's been long enough now that the possibility exists another label like Shout Factory or Arrow could pick it up and give it an updated release.

@  TM2-Megatron : (12 February 2019 - 02:16 PM)

It's the same with their Dawn of the Dead blu-ray, and several others

@  TM2-Megatron : (12 February 2019 - 02:11 PM)

In Volcano's case it isn't so much a case just of amazon or eBay sellers... it looks like rather than releasing it directly, Fox licensed it out to Starz/Anchor Bay, and it's subsequently gone out of print

@  SHIELD Agent 47 : (12 February 2019 - 01:28 PM)

There's Amazon sellers for you.

@  Telly : (12 February 2019 - 12:49 PM)

thought about buying volcano on bluray last night, until i saw the price on amazon: $135. the used ones arent much cheaper at $90. i know the 3p sellers can set any price they want, but come on. $90-$135 for a 20 year old movie that was only so-so?

@  unluckiness : (12 February 2019 - 05:12 AM)

GOt my hopes up there for a bit. Last I heard it was nebulously in 2019.

@  Maximus Ambus : (12 February 2019 - 05:00 AM)

Nope, none for REmake or Zero either.

@  unluckiness : (12 February 2019 - 04:13 AM)

Do we have a release date?

@  Maximus Ambus : (12 February 2019 - 03:51 AM)

Looking forward to RE4 on Switch, it will be my annual playthrough.

@  unluckiness : (12 February 2019 - 01:40 AM)

Don't call Floridans that. It's degrading to marine mammals.

@  Ashley : (12 February 2019 - 12:41 AM)

Oh, the huge manatee

@  SHIELD Agent 47 : (11 February 2019 - 10:55 PM)

Anyone here ever been to the Manatee Viewing Center right outside Apollo Beach, Florida?

@  unluckiness : (11 February 2019 - 08:35 PM)

The manatees were extra eager that day.

@  ▲ndrusi : (11 February 2019 - 08:10 PM)

Maybe they accidentally got some editorial oversight for a while or something.

@  Shrug : (11 February 2019 - 07:03 PM)

And it shifted gears the season after, it's like there was a different head writer or editor or something one year

@  Shrug : (11 February 2019 - 07:03 PM)

There was some random season after the cancellation that I thought was amazing, but I don't watch the show closely enough to tell you which one it was

If the paint scheme isn't randomly glossy on Slingshot like Takara have done a couple times recently, and they're available seperately, I might pick him up. I don't particularily care for the character of Slingshot but I do unconditionally love combiners to the detriment of my wallet, and Ultra Prime needs limbs.

Edit: Oh, I see the wingtip now. n/m

I'm thinking they're going with the default cartoon configuration of Fireflight as the right arm, Slingshot as the left, Skydive as the right leg, and Air Raid as the left.

 

Fireflight is definitely the right arm as you can see his gun.  Skydive is the right leg because you can see his missiles on his wings.

 

On the left side you can see jet nosecones (you can see it on the right arm too).

 

I'm hoping Takara's has a gray face for Superion too.  White hands and feet would be nice too.

I still don't see enough definition on the left leg to call "jet" on it... But I'm hopeful.

Incidentally, the Japanese on the image is "Senshi gattai", "Warriors unite", and the text in the tweet says the reveal will be in the hobby magazines coming out at the end of this month.

Edit: Wait, no - there's the nose cone on the left leg. Well I'll be.

Hisashi Yuki, in addition to the Legends Brainstorm in Package photo, has also tweeted out a teaser for TakaraTomy’s version of Generations Combiner Wars.  The image shows a blackened out Superion with the words “UNITE 2015″ also appearing in the image.  Note that based on the blackened out silhouette that Superion is comprised of 5 jets rather than 4 jets and a helicopter like the Hasbro one.  Could this mean that TakaraTomy is releasing a version of Slingshot?!  Slingshot is currently absent from Hasbro’s lineup but homaged via the new character Alpha Bravo.

Discuss the news on our forums.

Hisashi Yuki has tweeted out a new image of Legends Brainstorm.  This image shows Brainstorm in robot mode alongside himself in packaging.  Unlike Hasbro’s Generations, TakaraTomy’s Legends (thus far) have all been packaged in vehicle mode.  Legends Brainstorm features additional paint operations and some color changes compared to his Generations counterpart.

Discuss the image on our forums.

Slingshot and Wildrider will each almost certainly be a straight redeco of one of their teammates, but it's certainly something for folks wanting a completely geewun CW experience.

If they release the Stunticons all at the same time, I may get Takara's over Hasbro's. I don't mind Offroad but a pick-up is rather out of place with the other fast car dudes on the team. Plus, if they're shinier, it kinda fits with their sportscar modes. I like Alpha Bravo a lot more than another jet dude though.

I'm trying to edit off the kanji for a proper silhouette, but the top left one is throwing me for a loop with all its squiggly bits. I don't suppose anyone recognises it, so I can compare against a clean one?

Since Air Raid and Skydive are retools of each other, I'm hoping there is a retool of Fireflight into Slingshot.

I'd say that they're parts-sharing rather than retools, given just how much about them is different.

 

But yeah, the same thing for Slingshot (or, honestly, fewer different parts) would work.

Please, Takara, release your Combiner teams in boxsets.

As for their Superion, they should go for manga accuracy, with a blue visor and a painted mouth on the mouthplate. And Slingshot should be gold chromed all over. :p
