"The missile failed... I'll have to finish this personally..."

@  MEDdMI : (17 December 2017 - 10:44 PM)

Next thing you know, you'll wake up with Unicron looming over you, holding a knife.

@  Paladin : (17 December 2017 - 07:51 PM)

i remember the missile gears malfuctioned a lot. damn thing once shot me in the middle of the night.

@  Fenix Twilight : (17 December 2017 - 06:54 PM)

Just transformed Unicron probably for the first time since I got him in 03, fun stuff. Still would like a new version but since they just did another release last year I guess we're stuck with that mold.

@  Shrug : (17 December 2017 - 06:16 PM)

Yeah, I think that might work on the red one, if I can find a neon enough yellow

@  SHIELD Agent 47 : (17 December 2017 - 06:10 PM)

How about neon yellow/green? Like on Krok?

@  Shrug : (17 December 2017 - 05:45 PM)

I'm dealing with a black/grey robot and a red/black robot.

@  Shrug : (17 December 2017 - 05:44 PM)

I'm thinking of making some figures "G2" with minor paint additions: a little panel lining, probably. What colors in small amounts make you think G2?

@  Nevermore : (17 December 2017 - 05:41 PM)

Don't worry, it was grammatically correct, it just wasn't "fluent". :)

@  SHIELD Agent 47 : (17 December 2017 - 03:29 PM)


@  SHIELD Agent 47 : (17 December 2017 - 03:22 PM)

Damn. I initially thought of writing "Herzliche Glückwünsche", but I thought that didn't fit because we don't know each other in real life. But I forgot to check for quantity after dropping "Herzliche".

@  TM2-Megatron : (17 December 2017 - 03:14 PM)

It'll be nice when they finally perfect universal translation algorithms

@  Nevermore : (17 December 2017 - 02:43 PM)

In German, you only pluralize "Glückwunsch" when it's several people congratulating someone. As in, "I received everyone's congratulations."

@  Nevermore : (17 December 2017 - 02:42 PM)

That's actually a hypercorrect literal translation that immediately reveals you as a non-native speaker.

@  SHIELD Agent 47 : (17 December 2017 - 01:04 PM)


@  ILoveDinobot : (17 December 2017 - 12:34 PM)

And top top it all off, my employer will offer a one-off bonus for moving to permanent late shift, and another annual bonus if I stay on permanent late shift for an entire year.

@  Nevermore : (17 December 2017 - 11:10 AM)

That's basically my personal dream shift.

@  Nevermore : (17 December 2017 - 11:09 AM)

No more getting up early. Also, every work week will be from Monday to Friday, with the weekends off.

@  Nevermore : (17 December 2017 - 11:09 AM)

Next year I will have the option for permanent late shift.

@  Nevermore : (17 December 2017 - 11:09 AM)

Soon I'll be free!

@  RichardT1977 : (17 December 2017 - 07:59 AM)

Did I miss something, or did the whole movie pass without


@  TM2-Megatron : (17 December 2017 - 02:18 AM)

TBH, the use of the word "boudoir" seemed a bit more out of place to me than the humour... has a non-English Terran language ever been established as existing in Star Wars before?

@  PlutoniumBoss : (17 December 2017 - 01:28 AM)

It's not like it's a big deal anyway. I mean, anything with Aurebesh in it is demonstrably non-canon, because there's no X in Aurebesh so X-Wings wouldn't be called X-Wings, right?

@  unitremover : (16 December 2017 - 11:48 PM)

That said, I do think it is really weird that


@  unitremover : (16 December 2017 - 11:47 PM)

Yeah, TLJ felt a lot more mindful about when it broke out the quips/jokes than I think the Marvel movie comparison implies

@  2017 : (16 December 2017 - 09:35 PM)

I'm fine with the humour because the rest of the universe feels legit, and it's not ten quips a minute like those bloody Marvel movies.

@  Waspinator : (16 December 2017 - 09:22 PM)

It's mostly


@  Waspinator : (16 December 2017 - 09:21 PM)

Do spoiler tags work here?


@  TM2-Megatron : (16 December 2017 - 08:13 PM)

Less than 3 hours to go, now

@  TM2-Megatron : (16 December 2017 - 08:11 PM)

Also, it can't be worse than those awful "sarcastic" jokes in the beginning of AotC that were meant to establish a camaraderie between Anakin and Obi-Wan where it was clear that none existed.

@  TM2-Megatron : (16 December 2017 - 08:09 PM)

Doesn't sound like something I'll be bothered by; movies have to change at least a little bit with the times

@  Waspinator : (16 December 2017 - 07:59 PM)

Yeah, there was some sarcastic humor that wasn't really present in the classic movies

@  Steevy Maximus : (16 December 2017 - 02:00 PM)

I didn't have a problem with it. But it DOES skew a bit more "modern" in ways the humor of prior films didn't, short maybe Rogue One

@  TM2-Megatron : (16 December 2017 - 01:20 PM)

I'm staying spoiler-free until I see it tonight, but a number of people seem really angry at the humour in the film

@  TM2-Megatron : (16 December 2017 - 01:19 PM)

I've already noticed some backlash against it over on blu-ray.com, but a lot of it seems to stem from anger about the Disney/Fox deal

@  TheMightyMol... : (16 December 2017 - 11:23 AM)

Because internet.

@  Bass X0 : (16 December 2017 - 11:20 AM)

Why are people getting so upset with other people's opinions of a family space movie?

Harley is standing over Nightwing tied up while in her underwear while he's basically saying no and she's pushing it.

It's already too much for me. It's already reminding me too much of TKJ.

"Disabled people don’t have special needs. We have very reasonable human needs. Our needs include freedom from abuse, violence, and mistreatment, the right to autonomy and self-direction, the right to represent ourselves, equal opportunity for education and employment, the right to accommodation, and societal inclusion and acceptance.

The need for accommodation isn’t a “special need”. It’s a basic human right. It’s a leveling of the playing field that allows us the same opportunities and chances as non-disabled people."

We'll see, but it does bother me to see them be so slavish to the BTAS style...but with content that is well above where that show was targeted.  It seems obvious that this is an attempt to mitigate the increasing critical backlash to a LOT of recent DC Animated films with a big nostalgia play.


While the sequence with Nightwing bound and Harley in her underwear was clearly triggering some TKJ PTSD, I laughed HARD at Booster Gold's check in and offer for help with Nightwing's commentary (including gestures which wouldn't have flown on TV).

THe next Batman film: Batman and Harley Quinn, done in a style strongly reminiscent of BTAS/NA:

Would have liked to seen Alreen or Tara come back for Harley at least to have more of a callback.

Nightwing, what have those monsters done to your rockin' mullet?

Sure would have been odd of the show to feel the need to add Damian two years before he was introduced as Damian Wayne and not just unnamed baby with questionable canonicity

I'm on board...tentatively. I love the animated series. Who doesn't. So the art style and Kevin Conroy voice kinda has me sold already.

But then Kevin Conroy and Mark Hamil did do Killing Joke...and...well...we all know how that turned out.

So yeah, tentative...but I'm on board...for now.

After Starfire has demonstrated how she learns languages by kissing:

Kid Flash: Oh by the way, I speak some Spanish if you wanna learn that.

Speedy: 2nd year highschool french!

My thoughts: And that girl over there...fluent in just about everything else...just sayin'. *gets his camera ready*


And just finished Judas Contract.

I always felt it was a missed opportunity in the old Teen Titans show that the reason Terra got brought to the dark side was because she couldn't control her powers (intro ep). Slade gave her finer control by taking control of her body-ish (shown in the attack ep). So when she turned good again, she rejected the control and that's why she went out of control and brought the base down (final part). It seemed implied in the show but not outright said.

Judas Contract was messed up a bit by Brother Blood's machine not being symmetrical, after the fuss he said about that. Where was Raven in the machine?

Also, why bother bringing in a fake Jericho? And he was made invulnerable by the machine but still dies by headshot?

Whaaaaa?!? I was watching at a friend's and we had to leave so I didn't check! Holy cow!

Wait, is that implying that Brother Blood moved to Jericho's body? That's not that cool. Why would Jericho have healing powers anyway. I know his throat cut got healed in the comics so he was able to speak again but it turned him evil somehow.
