Theres possibly a transformer-collecting rick hopping the multiverse that has all the fan vote options available through the years.

@  unluckiness : (21 July 2018 - 10:38 PM)

I have the green one and it's more or less okay. One side has louder clicks but it was like that form the get go

@  Shrug : (21 July 2018 - 05:23 PM)

Well, his gold isn't quite the color I associate with GPS and I see little, if any swirling in it. But hip ratchets in gold plastic that loudly clicked once only to be suddenly silenced. Hrmm. Messing with it now, one leg has no ratcheting and the other ratchets at something like 80 degrees apart.

@  Nevermore : (21 July 2018 - 03:37 PM)

I like that figure. :(

@  Nevermore : (21 July 2018 - 03:37 PM)

Please no GPS on HFTD Sea Spray...

@  Darth Gonzo : (21 July 2018 - 03:32 PM)

That moment when you realize GoBots is being talked about more then Transformers.

@  Shrug : (21 July 2018 - 02:11 PM)

Anyone have experience with HFTD Seaspray? I just bought a used one (for a buck!) and all his hip ratchets broke on first movement. Does he just generally have fragile ratchets or is GPS starting?

No Decepticons. It's Autobots Civil War.

New York Comic Con is in October, maybe there?

@  Nevermore : (20 July 2018 - 05:49 AM)

So.. thus far, Hasbro only revealed Autobots for Siege. Any ideas which show they will reveal the Decepticons at?

@  Nevermore : (20 July 2018 - 05:44 AM)

So where did the "Stege" logo come from? All I can find is Sipher posting it an making fun of it. Where did that inconvenient version originate?

@  Sabrblade : (19 July 2018 - 11:53 PM)

True. But it was due to Transformers' use of the name that Saban at the time couldn't use it.

@  Tm_Silverclaw : (19 July 2018 - 11:38 PM)

But that's not necessarily a reference, just an attempt to use "Technobable" name.

@  Sabrblade : (19 July 2018 - 10:57 PM)

It's not Power Rangers, but Saban's VR Troopers was originally going to be titled "Cybertron".

@  Tm_Silverclaw : (19 July 2018 - 09:26 PM)

@paladin Energon would be too obvious. That's why I like Ore-13. It's not overt.. but still a nice nod.

@  Paladin : (19 July 2018 - 08:05 PM)

the original Sentai called it "Enetron." all they have to change is ONE LETTER.

@  Tm_Silverclaw : (19 July 2018 - 06:26 PM)

@saberblade True.. But I don't know.. I just want something simple like the "Energy source" in Beast Morphers to be Ore-13 or something like that.

@  Sabrblade : (19 July 2018 - 05:41 PM)

@Tm_Silverclaw: Operation Overdrive did have a weapon called the "Transtech Armor" ;)

@  SHIELD Agent 47 : (19 July 2018 - 04:49 PM)

*sigh* This is going to be a long subline.

@  SHIELD Agent 47 : (19 July 2018 - 04:49 PM)

I already hate the overuse of "STEGE".

@  Tm_Silverclaw : (19 July 2018 - 04:16 PM)

I just want Power Ranger refferenes in TF and Vice versa now.

@  Onyxstrike : (19 July 2018 - 11:32 AM)

I think Hasbro might be after more than just my money this time around with these reveals.

@  Otaku : (18 July 2018 - 02:39 PM)

@TheMightyMollusk Thanks for clarifying.

@  TheMightyMol... : (18 July 2018 - 12:34 PM)

@Otaku, most people were oblivious. The smart ones did their emergency shopping the day before, so there wasn't much left anyway.

@  MEDdMI : (18 July 2018 - 09:37 AM)

@wonko Only happened a few times and I don't remember the exact details, but yeah.

@  Otaku : (18 July 2018 - 08:06 AM)

@TheMightyMollusk Is that really the same thing? I mean, it is if the people were casually shopping and oblivious to the danger to them or the employees of the store, but if they were desperately trying to get needed supplies themselves... or am I just supposed to be smart enough to know you wouldn't have brought it up if it wasn't the former? >_<

@  wonko the sane? : (18 July 2018 - 07:59 AM)

Okay, what? I've had to explain why the TV wouldn't work when the power is out to children, but never to an adult in their right mind.

@  MEDdMI : (18 July 2018 - 07:44 AM)

@  TheMightyMol... : (18 July 2018 - 03:11 AM)

We had people still trying to shop while we were being pushed by state police to shut the store down due to flooding. The police finally had to help herd them out.

@  MEDdMI : (17 July 2018 - 07:36 PM)

Or working for an airline and people complaining about not being able to take off in severe weather, and expecting us to know when the bad weather will end. *points at window*

@  MEDdMI : (17 July 2018 - 07:34 PM)

Outages/fire alarms are fun when you work retail and people complain that they can't keep shopping.

@  Echowarrior : (17 July 2018 - 07:11 PM)

Outages occasionally happened at the fulfillment center I used to work at. Never fun.

@  Nevermore : (17 July 2018 - 04:51 PM)

Apparently the early shift (i.e. those who didn't participate in the walkout) were sitting in the cafeteria, waiting for power to return, while the late shift couldn't even enter the building.

@  wonko the sane? : (17 July 2018 - 04:18 PM)

Oh, wow. I thought the news about the website outtage would have been the topper, but that pretty much wins.

@  Nevermore : (17 July 2018 - 04:14 PM)

Whoopsie.

@  Nevermore : (17 July 2018 - 04:14 PM)

First the union called for a two-day strike yesterday, and then today the entire city where the Amazon warehouse I work at is located apparently had a power outage.

I wonder if DC will do Nick Fury and change comic Deadshot to African American? They rebooted again anyhow.

The whole "will smith is the face of Suicide Squad"'is becoming more and more true. Looking at the toys he is everywhere...more than Joker. Even has a 12" figure I saw at Target next to the Deadshot, Harley Quinn and Batman 6" figures. Can see who DC is pushing.

 

Well, GOOD! Deadshot SHOULD be the lead face of the Suicide Squad!

I think it's been vastly underestimated how much the moviegoing public has missed the smartass action movie star version of Will Smith. He does a lot of things well, but there's nothing he's better at than that.

 

Thing about that is... 

 

Name the last good movie Will Smith was actually in. 

 

 

His last 4 major projects before this were "Winter's Tale," "After Earth," "Men In Black 3," and "Seven Pounds." they all SUCK.

Seven Pounds is a vaaaaaaaaaaaaastly underrated film that moviegoers just hated.

This is sort of my point. Other than MIB 3, which everyone was sleepwalking through, those movies were all pretty dour affairs. And you didn't even mention Concussion, his terrible Oscar bait movie from last year!

 

People were delighted to see him doing things like shooting monsters and yelling "TRIANGLE, BITCH!" again.

Ditto.  Not as good or fresh as the first, of course, but Josh Brolin's Tommy Lee Jones impression was impressive, and the underlying heart of the movie was ooey-gooey sappy cheesy goodness.  Also the movie's Neuralizer gags were some of the most gut-bustingly funny ones of the entire series.

 

I didn't mind Seven Pounds either.  No, it wasn't a great movie, and really heavy-handed in its emotional manipulation, but the story was pretty interesting and different to say the least.

MiB3 wasn't great, but just about everyone agrees that its much better film and sequel then 2 was. I don't think they'll ever make one as great at the original, but MiB3 I can actually rewatch and enjoy, compare to cringing for most everything in 2. After 2 I think most everyone was done with the Franchise and 3 feels like "Hey, it can still be good" as I know that if there was a 4th if its at least as enjoyable as 3 I won't mind seeing other sequels.

Brolin as young Tommy Lee was awesome! He got virtually all the K inflections down pat. Bravo to him!

Don't really want Will Smith as the face of Suicide Squad but, well, is it successful enough that they can afford him for a sequel? Without turning it into a Harley Joker romance movie?

It's having a pretty great first week at the box office. At least $300 million domestic is looking like a sure thing, and probably an ever bigger number internationally. I'd say you can put money on a sequel 2019-ish.

In the past there's literally only 1 black character, so OF COURSE he turns out to be Will Smith's father. It was screamingly obvious, and oh so insultingly stupid at the same time. Horrid film.

From the trailers I'd hoped for an entertaining jive-show and that's more or less what I got. Truth be told it actually exceeded my low expectations, except for Jared Leto whose interpretation of The Joker was pretty bad. Not quite Jesse Eisenberg as Lex Luthor embarrassingly godawful, but not great (although I did love when he christened Harley at the chemical plant.) Admittedly when I first saw the pictures my instinctual response was "NO!" but I went in with an open mind and my gut reaction was absolutely right. *shrugs*

 

As for the actual squad I liked the characters and their interactions, I think the team worked great together and had chemistry. Will Smith as Will Smith as it was described in an earlier post is very appropriate, but oh well, there's a reason the guy's a star. I grew up on the Sorkin Harley Quinn so this didn't feel like Harley Quinn to me and the pronunciation of puddin' bugged me, but in general I thought Margot Robbie was entertaining and kind of awesome. Boomerang was funny but I feel robbed because I was expecting some sort of payoff with the pink unicorn. Katana was pointless but I'm certainly not going to complain about a hot sword-wielding Japanese woman randomly showing up in movies I watch. Diablo was interesting although I think they bungled the execution of his backstory. Croc was better than I thought he'd be.

 

The villains were lame, the action wasn't very exciting against faceless dull toons, the structure of the story was a mess.

 

I feel like it had all the ingredients to be so much better and with all its faults I could easily come away hating it, yet I was able to have fun and enjoyed it more than I thought I would going in. Maybe that's because the last DC film I saw was Batman vs  Superman.

Saw it last night. Holy medicority Batman!

Cons:
Joker. I think he could have delivered a good joker if they weren't trying so hard to make him a "take" on the joker, and just made him the joker. I also didn't care for the anti heroing of him, going to such lengths to save hq.

Hq. Obnoxious. After a couple of the early trailers I saw her dialogue described as "pulled entirley from hot topic t shirts" which is really not far off in the final product. I was also dumb that the character with no powers or special skills seemed to get more kills than any of the others. She consistantly killed the monster things with one shot, while deadshot didn't? Her bat was just as effective as a soul stealing katana? I'm not sure of ss oragin in the comics, but in the movie as an anti meta human team what would she even bring to the table?

Croc. wierd racial stuff, and dialogue that pretty much amounts to "rawr"

Flagg. Exists only to advance the plot. You don't root for him, or hate him, he is just there.

Character arcs. There are none. About all you get is "we are a team now" which isn't much since they got a long fairly well since the begining.

Music. There were a ton of excellent songs actually, but throwing great, but often nonsensical music selections, at the audience to try to generate posative feeling towards the movie is weak.

Terrible use of flash backs in a few spots. Didnt need to see diablos dodgy cgi prison scene 2 or 3 times, or the flash back to enchantress and flagg that I watched happen 40 minutes ago.

Did we really need 3 helicopter crash scenes?

Pros:
Better than bvs
Captain boomerang was borderline fun (sub con: criminally underutalized)
I finally got rid of that big white box.

Not as bad as Man of Steel or Dawn of Justice, but still pretty meh.

 

Favorite part was when Deadshot jumped onto the police car and started gunning down all of the monsters in the street singlehandledy with everything he had in his wrist-mounted weaponry.

 

But, alas, this movie still has the exact same problem as its two predecessors: The threat level was too big. How many here would have preferred the main villain to have been the Joker, with Task Force X instead assembled for a black ops mission to stop whatever horrible plan the Joker was cooking up? That would have been a much more reasonable threat level for them to take on since the Joker is a big enough deal to be a threat without the movie having to force on us yet another "end of the world" type scenario. We don't need world-ending threats all the time for these movies to be entertaining. Just tell a story that's straightforward and wholesome without constantly trying to be so darn arrogant and epic in how uber serious the villain is. Joker would have been enough of a threat to deal with instead of the nobodies that Enchantress and her brother were. As is, Joker was completely wasted and served only as a distraction from the movie's main plot--what little of that there was here--and the two actual villains weren't the least bit threatening or interesting at all.

 

As for why Task Force X would be needed instead of Batman to stop the Joker, come up with some reason to get him out of the way like saying Batman's mysteriously gone of the grid since BvS for some reason (which could serve as more JL foreshadowing), or have the Joker's plot be something personal to the government that they'd want to deal with themselves without Batman's help or awareness.

I think the concept of being educated and being able to educate is something that more people need more of in their lives.

No, we don't all know everything but we should spread and share that what we do know.

If I'm consistently misspelling a word, I would want and expect people to correct me as should I imagine all decent people who know the value of good literacy.

Its just arrogant laziness to know you're spelling a word incorrectly and not correct yourself or ignore the advice when people do tell you how to spell a word correctly.

Or maybe its the fact that the movie that got pitched was more Suicude Squad vs Joker, which is what also which a lot of movie goers were sold on, and even Trailers seemed to play Joker up as a Major character in the movie.
