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. :(

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?

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)

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

@  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.

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

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

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 donít 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 isnít a ďspecial needĒ. Itís a basic human right. Itís 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).

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.

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?

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.

I don't recall seeing a Suicide Squad Hell to Pay thread, though there were other individual threads for the previous movies. I did remember this was a general DC toon movies thread so... Here?

I thought the movie was pretty great. I didn't appreciate the inclusion of magic in a spy/military/Black ops operation but the card thing worked out pretty well.

I thought the stripper scenes were hilarious. Harley was so excited, haha (though honestly, she was wasted in the movie). I dunno what to make of the exposed nipple part, since they did that but didn't show a vagina when that was exposed.

Pyg, I dunno him from the comics (created by... Grant Morrison for what comic?). I enjoyed Copperhead a lot. Luved Killer Frost there. Don't know much about Broze Tiger but he was pretty cool here.

Enjoyed it, since it was taken from a Secret Six Gail Simone comic plot. Overly bloody but, pretty good.

Is this a complete stand alone, or it is a sequel to Assualt on Arkham? It doesn't really matter too much either way, I'm just curious.

It's not a sequel to Assault on Arkham because they use a different Killer Frost.

There's a cool twist later on that links it to a DIFFERENT DC animated movie. Nice that they did it. You might be able to guess it from the trailer if they show the cast list.

I didn't think it was one of the 'best' arcs in Secret Six (i forget who won the card) but I love that they animated Scandal and Knockout, woo! Plus, that's Secret Six, not Suicide Squad.

Btw, something I'm not too clear but when Copperhead said bacon to Pyg, Pyg's eyes were looking down so they were saying Copperhead... got excited?

It's strange that they're putting all the kinky stuff in. Like you can see the guard's left arm sorta moving while he was watching that... recreational video. I blame Bruce Timm's Harley movie.

A Sneak Peak vid on the new DC animated movie take on the Death of Superman. This is part 1 of a full two movie adaptation of the tale. Honestly, i’m less than happy that they’re adapting it into the New 52 style aesthetic of their movies. Even though expecting the classic style was highly unlikely. Still, it looks pretty good.
