nobody here has moved past Wave 1. maybe if they hadn't crammed it with repaints....

@  Noideaforaname : (25 June 2017 - 06:46 AM)

Nitro's gonna be a pain in the butt to find, isn't he?

@  Pennpenn : (25 June 2017 - 03:51 AM)

Actually, on the subject of TLK toys, the voyager Nitro Zues or whatver looks pretty good. If I see it cheap I might give it to the Thunderwing head.

@  Pennpenn : (24 June 2017 - 09:58 PM)

Been playing a bit of Saints Row 4 and honestly the Blast Blast is hilariously overpowered.

@  Rycochet : (24 June 2017 - 05:28 PM)

And a better headsculpt.

@  unluckiness : (24 June 2017 - 05:23 PM)

It actually has half decent gimmicks too.

@  TheMightyMol... : (24 June 2017 - 04:03 PM)

It's still crap but at least it takes up less space.

@  Rycochet : (24 June 2017 - 10:31 AM)

I'd rather have Armada Sideswipe than Alternator Sideswipe.

@  Tm_Silverclaw : (24 June 2017 - 09:50 AM)

What he's really doing is buying all the sideswipe, so that after the apocolypse.. He'll have an army to take ove the world!

@  unluckiness : (24 June 2017 - 09:00 AM)

We could be taking this the wrong way. What if this person means to sacrifice their own money to prevent Armada Sideswipes from falling into the hands of those who don't know better?

@  Rycochet : (24 June 2017 - 06:26 AM)

People say silly things online all the time, usually followed by a smilie or a wink. Take away the context and they go from being a joke to absurd hyperbole.

@  TheMightyMol... : (24 June 2017 - 06:07 AM)

But that would miss the entire point of hyperbole.

@  Pennpenn : (24 June 2017 - 06:03 AM)

Well that's a stupid attitude from someone who would waste a lot of money. I mean, they should just... not buy movie toys?

@  Bass X0 : (24 June 2017 - 04:52 AM)

Most insane thing I read of the day: "I would rather buy 100 Armada Sideswipes and PRiD Airachnids than buy any Bayformers crap"

@  Nevermore : (23 June 2017 - 06:10 PM)

His dialogue is full of allusions to his infamous lookalike, though sometimes as subversions. Oh, and sometimes he sings Karaoke. Check his rendition of "My Way", it's on Youtube.

@  Nevermore : (23 June 2017 - 06:09 PM)

The entire idea behind the character is that he looks and talks like Hitler, but is actually a good guy. Maybe with a dickish attitude, but he's not the villain.

@  Nevermore : (23 June 2017 - 06:08 PM)

Alfons Hatler is a supporting character from a German Edgar Wallace parody movie and its sequel.

@  Nevermore : (23 June 2017 - 06:07 PM)

I'd like to remind everyone that Alfons Hatler exists, which is all sorts of awesome.

@  wonko the sane? : (23 June 2017 - 05:41 PM)

@  Sean Whitmore : (23 June 2017 - 03:31 PM)

Epilogue is the worst thing to happen to mankind. And I'm including, like, all the wars and stuff.

@  Evac : (23 June 2017 - 02:11 PM)

... Did Linkara cover that one?

@  Paladin : (23 June 2017 - 01:50 PM)

the comics where Barbara quit being Batgirl after she was beaten into a miscarriage.

@  Boomhauer : (23 June 2017 - 01:20 PM)

His choice to be Batman had more punch when he was a completely normal guy met with the same dillema instead of the DNA garbage that muddies the message for no other reason than to give Old Bruce another ass-kiss before the show is over. It's a boring episode whose entire concept is repeating things already known and spark Squawkbox arguments.

@  The Predaking : (23 June 2017 - 01:11 PM)

But he still chose to be batman. Not only did he chose to be batman, he did it better.

@  Tm_Silverclaw : (23 June 2017 - 12:46 PM)

I have to agree.. Part of the problem with Epilogue is it takes away from "Terry CHOSE to be batman" and changed it a bit to "Terry was designed to be batman."

@  NotVeryKnightly : (23 June 2017 - 12:13 PM)

Do you mean the DCAU continuity comics or Future's End?

@  Paladin : (23 June 2017 - 11:36 AM)

can we all at least agree it's a better ending for Batman Beyond than the comics?

@  wonko the sane? : (23 June 2017 - 10:52 AM)

There was no evidence of it to support it in the show, and generally using someone to MAKE a batman is a jerkish thing to do.

@  Benbot : (23 June 2017 - 10:37 AM)

why does it matter?

@  Tm_Silverclaw : (23 June 2017 - 10:25 AM)

I think the problem with Epilogue was making Terry effectivly Batman's son.

@  Benbot : (23 June 2017 - 10:24 AM)

what's your problem with it?

@  The Predaking : (23 June 2017 - 10:02 AM)

Epilogue give a great end to Batman Beyond and even has a Mask of the Phantasm character

@  MrBlud : (23 June 2017 - 09:55 AM)

I don't post in the Shoutbox often, but when I do, it's to confirm "Epilogue" is garbage.

@  Paladin : (23 June 2017 - 08:43 AM)

even "Epilogue" ? (braces for that argument again)

@  The Predaking : (23 June 2017 - 08:26 AM)

Yeah, miles is only used when accuracy doesn't actually matter, or we're dealing with americans.

@  Nevermore : (23 June 2017 - 03:55 AM)

We even use "miles" in similar contexts in German even though we use kilometers for actual measurements.

@  The Doctor Who : (23 June 2017 - 02:40 AM)

Makes sense, really. Colloquialisms exist in their own weird little universe where terminology can persist after it's no longer relevant otherwise.

@  abates : (23 June 2017 - 01:17 AM)

We also measure car milage in kilometres but still call it milage.

@  Bass X0 : (22 June 2017 - 05:47 PM)

No. We still say miles. Kilometers is only really used for actual specific distances whereas miles being used in a common phrase is still miles.

@  SHIELD Agent 47 : (22 June 2017 - 04:59 PM)

People from outside the U.S.: as we are all English-proficient here, do you ever use the phrase "I saw it coming from miles away.", or do you say "kilometers" instead?

@  Hg Dragon : (22 June 2017 - 08:13 AM)

First, they threatened to stop sending us digital because we weren't upcharging for it (back when we were still "mixed" format). Then they threatened to stop sendingus 3D because we didn't upcharge for those either initially.

An adult show to give the true Transformers fan what they want.

 

Transformers: Buckets of Blood.

 

Megatron and the Decepticons (using only the pure Sunbow season 1&2 lineup) invade the Earth. Every episode they kill as many people as they can with their fists and feet.

 

Optimus Prime and his Sunbow seasons 1&2 friends must stop them. They are powered by a process like Powermasters, but instead of men turning into their engines, they must snap people open and use their blood to power them.

 

Hot Rod is also in it but he is a stupid idiot fool and he dies each week in a gruesome and ironic way. 

 

50% of the scripts each week is dialogue directly lifted from TFTM.

To most Cybertronians, the most scariest creatures to them are usually off world. But what lies beneath.....only a few have the questionable honor of knowing. Sure, there's Mutants, Demons, Trans-Organics, even the occasional Sparkeater-but they're what is allowed to leak to the surfaces. Eldritch entities, corpses with their inner energon dried out and sewn together shambling around, viruses that take over and mimic the CNA from inside a Cybertronian body until mutating the body beyond recognizance, and things which are impossible to describe. The faction's highest leaders have agreed to set aside differences for protection against these entities, keeping certain areas off limits from their troops, while inter-faction squadrons go in to take care of problems. They don't always come out, and those that do aren't always the same person they were before....or even alive at all.

This is meant as a gag series, something that operates on a mix of "rule of cool" and "rule of funny". 

 

 

Transformers: Dis-Unit:E

 

Once upon a time, Mesogalove was a top Quintesson scientist. A wretched excuse for a sentient being, but a top scientist. Then he backed the wrong faction in an internal dispute, forcing him to flee the planet. 

 

...But other than that, everything was going just fine until he landed on Earth and UNIT:E found him. 

 

Given his ability to take on human size and appearance, the UNIT:E operatives responsible for his case rushed to assemble a quick cover story. His new, human guise is Mason Glover, a visiting British researcher who has come to study American systems; any eccentricities, they figured, would be down to either his being foreign or his being in the midst of a mid-life crisis. 

 

In order to actually hide him, they shipped him off to Rexburg, Idaho, home of sleeper agent and not-quite-playboy millionaire [male lead 2]. A few years ago, [male lead 2] combined his knowledge of business and [supplementary character 1]'s knowledge of computers to create the A-37 algorithm, an investment algorithm that they sold to a major trading firm for millions plus royalties; as long as the firm continues within the limitations of the algorithm, it can't fail. That the pair are using the newer, more robust B-27 algorithm for their own personal investments is besides the point...

 

Given [male lead 2]'s status as one of the two people behind it and his occasionally serving as professor at the college in town, it made sense for him to play host... never mind the fact that he's already busy being Batman / Captain America. He's actually a Titans Return-style headmaster and the operator of a transtector that turns into an F-4 outfitted with a custom wild weasel package. 

 

They are soon joined by [female lead], a humanoid alien bounty hunter who was sent to retrieve Mesogalove until [male lead 2]... "convinced" her to knock it off. She, too, is now - in a human guise - hanging out at his place. 

 

Mesagalove will eventually get his own transtector... a 1980's-style van with airbrushed artwork consisting of his Quintesson form and the words "Quintesson Express". [Female lead]'s transtector will be a beast form based on the animal her species is based on (either a cat or a fox; trying to decide). 

 

 

 

Mormon Batman.

 

The Quintesson Manhunter.

 

Animal Girl Hawkgirl.

 

They might just save the world... if they don't kill each other first.

You know Starscream's coronation gear, or the capes all the bad guys had in Zone? That.

Everybody gets capes, more ornate helmets, maybe swords all over. Like, a big emphasis on not just battle gear, but battle regalia.

 

Also literally no combat and all fighitng is done via musical contest at dive bars.

A Transformers version of Batman: The Brave and the Bold.
With musical numbers.

 

 

Stoic, by-the-book straight man Optimus Prime fights the Decepticon threat across time and space, backed up by a revolving force of high-concept Autobots/Maximals based on mission - many of them a bit obscure, with Prime just as likely to team up with the ghost of Guardian Prime against the nightmarish Violin Jiger as he is to try & stop over-eager cadet Hot Shot from charging Fort Syk solo as he is to challenge Megatron to a primetime wrestling match. (Megatron cheats by getting Fracture to rush in with a chair when Prime's not looking)

Sunbow/Earthforce aesthetics with modern-day writing styles.
 

Whether Prime transforms into a neon superstreet luge is unconfirmed.

Now I can't stop thinking about Transformers The Brave And The Bold - or "Transformers: Prime Time!" as it would have to be called.

 

I see the exposition being provided by T-Ai, who works as the Al to Prime's Sam Beckett.

 

Optimus has to go undercover in the Decepticons and paints himself black, calls himself Scourge, and tries to talk 'evil'.

Ambitious Mini-Con Clench finds a way to hijack Megatron and uses him to conquer the Mini cities - and the only Mini-Cons free to help Optimus are the X-TREME teens of the Street Action Team.

See, I was thinking that Scourge would instead be an eeeevil clone of Optimus, and the brother of Megaplex, who's really quite nice once you get to know him. They're created by Jhiaxus.

(Scourge would later come back, assembling a team called "the Sweeps", which consists of clones of Optimus that look like his equivalents from other continuities. They're all good guys and not really sure why Scourge wants them to be evil.)

He could brainwash them or in TF terms, reprogram them to be evil or they could be evil Optimus clones from other realities and the leader is Scourge Prime, from Universe 1, similar to how there is mutable verisons of the Flash in the TV series Flash, Jhiaxus could boast that he created them using a cloning means and said there was some kind of error in the clone procress which is why they look similar yet different (different bodies and transformations) yet the truth would be Jhiaxus didn't create clones, he simply adducted the other bots from their realities while they were recharging their enegries and reprogram them, while Scourge No 1 thinks he in charge of things but he just a puppet and a pawn in a larger game playing by another bot or being.

An episode where Optimus has to go undercover at a zoo with some oddball beastformers like Longrack and Break and winds up having to spend the entire episode as a gorilla.
"He learned, almost too late, that man is a feeling creature and, because of it, the greatest in the universe. He learned, too late for himself, that men have to make their own way, to make their own mistakes. There can't be any gift of perfection from outside ourselves. And, when men seek such perfection, they find there's only death, fire, loss, disillusionment, the end of everything that's gone forward. Men have always sought an end to toil and misery. It can't be given; it has to be achieved. There is hope, but it has to come from inside, from man himself."
