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?

Guys, SSSHHHHH. Megatron is passed out right over there, and dude is a MEAN drunk. Don't wake him up.

Megatron is hammered! Now, I, Starscream am leader of the Decepticons!

@  wonko the sane? : (20 July 2018 - 09:47 AM)

And megatron is so confused as to why no one is shooting at him anymore that he starts binge drinking.

So... the nicest beings in the universe are fighting with each other?

@  TheMightyMol... : (20 July 2018 - 08:01 AM)

No Decepticons. It's Autobots Civil War.

@  Gryllid : (20 July 2018 - 07:55 AM)

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)

*When I worked at the cable call center, some people wondered why their TV wouldn't work when there was an outage...

@  MEDdMI : (18 July 2018 - 07:43 AM)

w

@  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.

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

So,uh. Seems like Amazon's Prime Day really didn't go well this year.

I already got the iTunes version of this. I plan on watching it tonight. It was my most anticipated comic movie of the year. Killing Joke has been one story I've been dying for them to do. I was planning on getting the HD iTunes version plus whatever BluRay release they did...like...please oh please oh please have a Blu Ray with figurine and mini-comic pack-in.

Thanks, but no. I just finished watching it. I will not be buying it again and I seriously doubt I'll even watch it again.

The prologue was every bit as horrid as I feared. I was hoping that once it got to the part where the actual graphic novel started it would get better. But by that point the prologue just really colored everything that came afterword and it just...bleh! Yeah, bleh...even worse than meh.

As short as the story itself was anyway, and as much as they had to pad it out with 30 minutes of "dear sweet merciful heavens why," the parts that actually from the graphic novel just seemed rushed. The animation was...well...I suppose it was decent. But for something that so many people have been waiting so long for, "decent" just doesn't seem good enough. I know they can do better. I've seen them do better. But this just seemed...bleh!

Honestly: Kevin Conroy, Mark Hamill and Tara Strong. How does this get so hugged up?

And they just wouldn't let it go either. It wasn't just a "well that scenes over, let's just forget that ever happened." No! They kept on talking and talking about it to the point of "it didn't mean anything. Please let's just get things back the way they were before it ever happened." Like...seriously...not even joking. That conversation actually took place! And guess who's the one with the tail between the legs begging to be taken back!

Pathetic. They just...wouldn't...stop!

I hope they're happy. Right now I'm just hoping I can still read the comic without it bringing back the bad taste I get from having watched this crap!

I just can't understand how that kind of plot point was even considered. I mean just, why? It adds nothing. It has no purpose, other than to be an ugly, icky shock tactic. And as Caldwin said, they keep beating you over the head with it.

After the bad press they got over a COVER referencing the Killing Joke, and Jokers implied abuse of Babs. How could any sane person even rationlise throwing the 'relationship' on top of that.

When Rocksteady referenced the shooting scene from KJ in Arkham Knight, they toned it DOWN by having the Joker shoot Babs in the back and take a few pictures. Admittedly, they for some reason paired Babs with Tim, which is stupid too. Just not to this level.

Yet yhe makers of this thought random sex between Babs and Bruce was a 'fascinating angle' to take the story. What. The. Hell!

Well, in addition to Killing Joke, we do have the nifty Justice League Dark feature coming in a few months.  That looked nifty, even if they are still pushing that pseudo "shared universe" deal on a bunch of their animated features.  And at SDCC, it was announced that The Judas Contract was back on (presumably, a sequel to JL vs TT, given the teaser at the end of that), and we're getting a Bruce Timm original story in Batman and Harley Quinn.

Are people really bitching about Babs hugging Bruce and not the hookers they added in to make it extra clear that Joker raped her after shooting her because a subtle implication wasn't enough?

So I am on my 2nd time watching this.  Picked up the blu ray today.  I think in future times watching Ill treat it like I do Attack Of The Clones....Ill just skip the first part.  So Ill skip the first 30 minutes or so and just watch where the book starts.  Other than the Batgirl opening, I think its a pretty good adaptation.  I haven't read a lot of Batman books over the years other than some graphic novels, and really nothing really dealing with Batgirl.  I took that scene with her and Batman as more creepy.  She's what, 21 ish at this point?  He's in his 40's and a father figure to her. gross.  

 

Id still like to see Dark Victory and The Long Halloween turned into an animated films.  The rape stuff....I honestly hadn't even thought of it while watching it until I read this.  But Ive been doing homework while its been playing so I guess I wasn't paying that close of attention.  But, I don't mind it.  It shows how demented Joker is and the lengths he was willing to go to turn Gordon crazy and continue to infuriate Batman.  Would I prefer the directors to just do a page for page adaptation....sure.  Give us the material as it was written.  But I can deal with it.

I actually liked the 30min prologue, it was a pretty decent Batgirl movie when all is said & done, I saw it as they made a mistake... a BIG BIG mistake, and then having to deal with the consequences of that mistake, ultimately realizing that the genie can never go back into the bottle. It made them very human, very relateable.

 

However it really had no place in the story of the Killing Joke, that I always saw was about a twisted co-dependant relationship between two enemies. After buliding up Babs for so long, she suddenly becomes an afterthought in the rest of the movie making for a strange tone.

 

So I saw it as getting a good Batgirl Short movie, along with a "as good as we're probably gonna get" Adaptation of TKJ.
