Yeah, it's kind of defeating the purpose of making political discussions more restricted if you're just gonna go at it elsewhere on this site.

The citizens resisted by buying up all the town's beer reserves so the Nazis would have to stay sober the entire time.

Meanwhile, congratulations civil resistance, part 2: So a group of Nazis were holding one of their Good Old Times Reenactment festivals in a small East German town.

The mayoral elections of Istanbul are considered to be a key indicator for the political climate in the entire country.

This time, it was a landslide victory for the opposition's candidate.

After president Erdogan had a court revoke the results of the mayoral election of Istanbul after the opposition party's candidate had won by a small margin, the election was repeated today.

@  TM2-Megatron : (17 June 2019 - 10:29 PM)

There needs to be some streaming service that caters to connoisseurs of schlock. Otherwise, a huge part of our cultural history will be wiped away. While many of these films are available on blu-ray, with more coming out each month, it's good they're also available for the streaming crowd.

@  TM2-Megatron : (17 June 2019 - 10:18 PM)

Corman did make an impressive number of barbarian films back in the day. If impressive is the word

@  Steevy Maximus : (17 June 2019 - 08:11 PM)

I mean, where else are you going to see the entire Roger Corman barbarian fantasy library (legally) for free?

@  Steevy Maximus : (17 June 2019 - 08:09 PM)

Oh Tubi TV, you are a haven for terrible films. Netflix, Hulu and Crackle all push for mainstream appeal and prestige, you got the guts to have ready access to dregs even the SyFy channel wouldn't air

@  ▲ndrusi : (17 June 2019 - 01:33 PM)

Also you have Bayonetta and a bunch of Fire Emblem people.

@  ▲ndrusi : (17 June 2019 - 01:33 PM)

...I mean, Tales character. Probably up to/for it.

@  TheMightyMol... : (17 June 2019 - 01:26 PM)

But what if I need to kill a god? Or several of them?

@  ▲ndrusi : (17 June 2019 - 11:25 AM)

Kratos is allowed, but only the one from Tales of Symphonia

@  TheMightyMol... : (17 June 2019 - 10:56 AM)

So no Kratos?

@  ▲ndrusi : (17 June 2019 - 10:42 AM)

In any case I'd rather have another Fire Emblem character than another character from a PlayStation exclusive game who teeeeeechnically was in a spinoff.

@  ▲ndrusi : (17 June 2019 - 10:39 AM)

Kong had his name on the games first, but Mario was the protagonist first. It's debatable.

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.

Japan never got the Generations Sky Shadow that the West got, so this would be its first release over there. They got Thunderwing, but not Black Shadow.

Yeah, if that's not Generations Sky Shadow with a faction logo sticker hole molded in, I'll eat my...Fixit? Yeah, he looks like he'd go down easy enough.

 

Optimus Prime Supreme Mode, I would assume, is the Leader-sized electronic Optimus Prime remolded (or at least re-decoed) as the upgraded form we've already seen in toy form with the new Mega Optimus Prime toy. Hey, they both use the exact same transformation, so why not?

IDW style Adventure Drift, an extensive retool of Voyager FOC Grimlock as RID / Adventure Grim, Black Shadow (yellow instead of gold parts, clear yellow eyes and cockpit, slightly different striping), United Frenzy & Rumble in different colors, QT Snoopy, some pretty crazy stuff here.

I REALLY like that Drift. DEFINITE get. Wish he were available solo (Gregevor was, right?) -- Jazz is an improvement on the US one but not by that much. (Also reading the other thread this is apparently "Battle Mode Jazz" -- what's that mean for his deco?)

 

Wonder if I'll be able to get Rumble/Frenzy this time around?

 

That Grimlock is an awesome move. I didn't know I'd appreciate such a thing so much until they actually did it!

The retooled FOC Grimlock is a bit out of left field - I hope they fix those terrible shoulder joints when they redesign most of the toy.

 

Since I don't watch the show does Grimlock's end of season Power up (if he gets one) make him G1 colours instead of Green ?

 

Drift looks really nice.

 

I was half expecting The Rumble & Frenzy to be simple United toy reissues - but I was hoping they'd be those moulds but with tweaked colours at least - perhaps to look a bit more happy Animation like colours.

 

Black Shadow is a odd one I'm surprised anyone cares enough to want that at all : though if they intend to retool something into Blue Baccus as well then it might make more sense.

I wonder if Japan or Korea will ever sell the Batallion figures at all ?

I'm a bit conflicted about which big Prime to use for my Big Red kitbash now.

 

TAV-21 has the cooler weapons and the chest fits better, but the retooled legs here are pretty nice.

 

It's a weird thing to release though. Weird weird weird.

Seriously tempted to get Black Shadow because I never tracked down the Hasbro version and unlike the other few gaps in my Generations collection he's not likely to get a new toy soon otherwise. I don't see where the circular sticker is going on this guy, though- and I'm half hoping they'll give up on that like they did with Cosmos.

Also, Rumble and Frenzy reissues so close to Hasbro's 2016 Rumble listing... but then I wonder. Looking at Buzzsaw's block mode, it actually seems to be very similar in size to their altmodes. I wonder if we'll see reduced parts count and springless versions of them sold by Hasbro for use with Generations Soundwave?

RID Grimlock looks awesome but I've bailed out of RID for the most part sadly.

The wave 1 TAVVS sets were all stuff available separately, yeah, but since then they're moving towards exclusives, like Phantomjaw and Stepper and stuff. And yeah, this will presumably be a different Jazz deco - the image is using the regular Adventure Jazz, due out this month, as a placeholder.

If you're talking about all the yellow, it seems to be drawing from Drift's Deadlock look.

EDIT: Takara, you scamps!

Ah, well then. Hopefully Battle Mode Jazz looks good -- the mold itself seems good enough to own two pricier Japanese versions of, anyway. Because if it even looks slightly good or repurposable I'll have an easier time justifying the purchase, since I'm already definitely grabbing this for Drift
