That's how it works. I just hope my order from Amazon doesn't arrive crushed because they idiotically stuffed it in an envelope.

my walmart is acting true to form. as soon as mirage arrives from amazon, my walmart gets his entire wave in after months of having wave 1 clogging the pegs....

I stirred up some trouble at work, complained about the blatant neglect of employee safety. Was asked to take photos and write down the locations so the matter could be properly escalated. Made me feel a little better.

What's your favorite Paleolithic megafauna?

@  TM2-Megatron : (14 October 2019 - 10:06 PM)

Together with the Rhino G1 sets, probably the most expensive DVDs I ever bought

@  TM2-Megatron : (14 October 2019 - 10:01 PM)

I've still got the age-old Rhino sets

@  Telly : (14 October 2019 - 09:09 PM)

i didnt find that at any of the ones around here, so i had to settle for seasons 1 and 2 of duckman for $3

@  Steevy Maximus : (14 October 2019 - 07:45 PM)

Heck, I got the season 2/3 set for $3 (?) from a Dollar General discount bin :p

@  TM2-Megatron : (14 October 2019 - 07:29 PM)

The series is pretty cheap on DVD, too, which at least will work internet or no. The complete series set seems to be OOP, but there's a Season 1 set as well as a combined 2 & 3 set.

@  wonko the sane? : (14 October 2019 - 06:10 PM)

Woot! Beast wars!

@  Steevy Maximus : (14 October 2019 - 06:08 PM)

Yay! Tubi now has the first season of Rescue Bots and the full run of Beast Wars FINALLY available.

@  Rycochet : (14 October 2019 - 01:51 PM)

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.

@  Paladin : (14 October 2019 - 09:57 AM)

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

@  Sabrblade : (14 October 2019 - 09:55 AM)

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!)

@  Benbot : (14 October 2019 - 09:22 AM)

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.

@  wonko the sane? : (14 October 2019 - 08:29 AM)

You've got like two more weeks until the american thanksgiving. Canadian thanksgiving is literally a harvest festival.

@  CVReynolds : (14 October 2019 - 08:09 AM)

Hey, everyone. Come together to enjoy this national holiday made to celebrate a mass-murderer who never set foot in the USA. What fun!

@  Benbot : (14 October 2019 - 07:25 AM)

Huh. There's a neat name for Beast Hunters Sharkticon Megs.

@  TheMightyMol... : (07 October 2019 - 11:44 AM)

It's a submarine, we swear!

@  Otaku : (07 October 2019 - 11:26 AM)

@Bass X0 Letting myself comment to say "That's a good one!" and ask "Would a megalodon be a good fit for Megatron?"

@  Benbot : (07 October 2019 - 07:59 AM)

Ohhh good one

@  Bass X0 : (07 October 2019 - 07:39 AM)

I now want a Decepticon shark called Megalotron.

@  TriBlurr : (06 October 2019 - 05:47 PM)

Gives them time to screw up the color of his hands. :p

@  TheMightyMol... : (06 October 2019 - 12:33 PM)

His bulk is too great to teleport across such distances.

@  Sabrblade : (06 October 2019 - 11:09 AM)

Cuz it'll take that long to mass produce.

RideBack was a great little anime about mecha bike racing with an uncommon (among mecha shows) protagonist, and I loved that her background in ballet influenced how she piloted the mech.

 

Then terrorism happened.

Hmm...

 

No interest in Enthusiast as a concept. Pass.

 

RS Project's mecha design is everything I dislike about modern mecha design. Pass.

 

Same goes for Dead End Sparks. Pass.

 

Dean Drive looks okay. Thumb in the middle.

 

Same rating for Star Storks.

 

Nothing wows me enough to get me to vote, though. Oh well.

Enthusiast - Overweight, headless Autobots with seats in their necks... I don't care about the story, it already sucks.

You've made Diaclone Ironhide sad.

 

He can't express it, because he has no face, but you've made him sad.

I really like the premise of Star Storks even if the mecha design really isn't my cup of tea, I'd be up for watching it. It really helps that it's about intelligent mecha and not just the guy in the suit, too. Robots are way cooler than plain mecha, that's for sure.

 

I hope that wins over the others, which all seem like slight variations of the kind of anime I don't bother with in the first place. Well, aside from the Sports McCarSafety one. That's just dumb looking.

Admittedly, all I'd possibly want from it is Different RideBack or Anime Kinetica, which are very bad reasons to like a project.

star storks seems to have an actual premise. The other shows feel too much like copies of things other people has already done. but I guess it's already been noticed by others here.

Man, lots of badly integrated CGI in those trailers.  At least run 'em at the same frame rate as the cel animation, geez.  

 

"Enthusiast!" sounded interesting right up until I saw it and the frankly astounding lack of animation compared to all the other series showcased, and the just plain lackluster robot designs.  It could have been so much better.


Fall of Cybertron will blow your mind. That is all.

The car one is IGPX Intial D and Rideback rolled into one pass

 

RS and Dead Sparks are similar in tone and easy pass

 

Dean Drive might be a fun watch

 

Space Storks has a great name an initnal hook but does not seem very intresting in the long run

 

 

Can I just get another season of Burst Angel with Jango and Jo?
