Ever notice Kath SOucie's Janine in the later episodes of Real Ghostbusters sounds like Tara Strong's Sari Sumdac?

@  Maximus Ambus : (28 September 2020 - 02:10 PM)

I wish they were more universal like Beast Wars, Animated or Prime and as professionally done,

@  Maximus Ambus : (28 September 2020 - 02:06 PM)

The Netflix shows are done for adults, the Generation toyline is for adults who grew up with G1.

@  Sabrblade : (28 September 2020 - 12:53 PM)

Who said it ever was?

@  -LittleAutob... : (28 September 2020 - 12:43 PM)

Whatever happened to WFC Earthrise being a kids show X'D

@  wonko the sane? : (28 September 2020 - 11:43 AM)

Cool, my last tablet couldn't run it, and I stopped caring by the time I got the new one. So thanks!

@  Otaku : (28 September 2020 - 11:27 AM)

There are crossover characters, but the amount and distribution... Marvel Vs Capcom this ain't.  If @wonko the sane? my bad!

@  Otaku : (28 September 2020 - 11:21 AM)

I've been playing for *checks account* 1002 days, 23 hours.  So, by 2021, it will have been three years.  I think it takes place in its own continuity, largely inspired by G1 but borrowing from other places.

@  Otaku : (28 September 2020 - 11:19 AM)

@wonko the sane? Can only speak for Earth Wars, but so few they're easy to forget.

@  wonko the sane? : (28 September 2020 - 07:39 AM)

Didn't they already do the across universes thing in that tablet game?

@  Demovere Xeno : (28 September 2020 - 05:30 AM)

Also, make the setting an amalgamation of different Transformers series, rather than based on a specific one. Bring in things like 'Sentinel Major' as the primo Autobot jerk, and sleek car mode Vehicons as the Decepticons' basic grunt.

@  Demovere Xeno : (28 September 2020 - 05:27 AM)

KT just needs to incorporate the vehicle modes into the combat system, like Platinum did for Devastation, so they're for more than just wheeling it across the battlefield. =P

@  Demovere Xeno : (28 September 2020 - 05:25 AM)

Transformers: Warriors of Cybertron! =D

@  Tm_Silverclaw : (28 September 2020 - 05:15 AM)

I want a Power Rangers Mosu. I would also take a Transformers Mosu. :D

@  TheMightyMol... : (28 September 2020 - 04:50 AM)

It even ended on a sequel hook.

@  Demovere Xeno : (28 September 2020 - 04:40 AM)

Man, I just want another Devastation game... =(

@  NotVeryKnightly : (28 September 2020 - 01:53 AM)

Aren't TFs way more varied than Joes, as far as they'd work in gameplay? Like, Omega Supreme is vastly different from Bumblebee.

@  unluckiness : (27 September 2020 - 10:16 PM)

Hell, ripoff Super Robot Wars withTFs

@  unluckiness : (27 September 2020 - 10:16 PM)

IDK they could make something like FF tactics or Fire Emblem ripoff with Robots and i'd buy it

@  Steevy Maximus : (27 September 2020 - 09:43 PM)

See, I feel GI Joe (with it's varied cast) is a better fit for a strategy game, where as Transformers feels more suited for a shooter.

@  Maruten : (27 September 2020 - 08:28 PM)

I might give them points for making a strategy game if it's actually a good strategy game.

@  wonko the sane? : (27 September 2020 - 07:48 PM)

I mean, points for making a strategy game instead of third person shooter, but: urrrrgggg. Cyberverse.

@  wonko the sane? : (27 September 2020 - 07:47 PM)

A transformers game for the switch? *checks* Urrrggg... cyberverse...

@  Steevy Maximus : (27 September 2020 - 06:28 PM)

October will be a big month for Hasbro fans: Zoids, GI Joe AND Transformers all have brand new console games. All on the Switch at that!

@  wonko the sane? : (27 September 2020 - 09:04 AM)

At least in animated he was more driven than just "loyal bootlick".

@  unluckiness : (27 September 2020 - 08:29 AM)

Oof, That's a huge downgrade

@  Maximus Ambus : (27 September 2020 - 02:35 AM)

After rewatching Animated Sound and Fury, in my head canon Titans Return Soundwave is that Soundwave.

@  wonko the sane? : (26 September 2020 - 04:09 PM)

On an unrelated note: I just got the BBTS email about kingdom pre-orders... and even the stuff I don't want I'm perfectly willing to get if it means I can have the rest of it.

@  wonko the sane? : (26 September 2020 - 04:08 PM)

It's digimon. So first one, then the other.

@  TheMightyMol... : (26 September 2020 - 12:53 PM)

50/50 odds, it's either a helicopter with limbs, or a scantily-clad human with heli blades on their back. If female, 90% odds on the second one.

@  NotVeryKnightly : (26 September 2020 - 12:39 PM)

I read that as "Helicoptermon" and wondered what kind of Digimon that was.

@  Bass X0 : (26 September 2020 - 12:35 PM)

Helicopter-mom, transform!

@  Maximus Ambus : (25 September 2020 - 11:58 PM)

Aw I scratched the hood of my 35th anniversary Bluestreak. Fortunately he's in robot mode a lot.

@  Sabrblade : (25 September 2020 - 07:24 PM)

No decoration could improve the wall more than Knockout himself

@  TheMightyMol... : (25 September 2020 - 05:04 PM)

The wall could use some decorating, though. Maybe a nice shelf or a portrait.

@  -LittleAutob... : (25 September 2020 - 04:32 PM)

I'm laughing so hard XDDD

@  ▲ndrusi : (25 September 2020 - 02:31 PM)

He doesn't even mind this time. You know what? It's comfortable here.

@  -LittleAutob... : (25 September 2020 - 02:23 PM)

AND THEN KNOCKOUT WAS IN THE WALL AGAIN XDDD

@  Bass X0 : (25 September 2020 - 01:11 PM)

is an annoying stage in Super Mario World.

@  wonko the sane? : (24 September 2020 - 02:15 PM)

Gnarly.

@  PlutoniumBoss : (24 September 2020 - 01:05 PM)

Beast Era, a blonde rat called Sunsqueaker.

@  TheMightyMol... : (24 September 2020 - 01:00 PM)

And then Knockout was in the wall again.

@  Sabrblade : (24 September 2020 - 12:53 PM)

Knockout: "Ooh, sorry, Lord Megatron. The correct word was... 'Decepticon'."

@  -LittleAutob... : (24 September 2020 - 11:15 AM)

Knockout: *while doing a crossword puzzle* Lord Megatron, whats a ten letter word for disappointment? | Megatron: ...... Starscream.

@  Maximus Ambus : (23 September 2020 - 01:20 PM)

@Bass X0 Shockwave did it.

@  TheMightyMol... : (23 September 2020 - 11:56 AM)

At least it's not Suntwerker.

@  wonko the sane? : (23 September 2020 - 11:19 AM)

I read that name as "suntweaker" the first time, and was terrified for a moment...

@  Bass X0 : (23 September 2020 - 03:41 AM)

Prowl did nothing wrong.

@  TheMightyMol... : (23 September 2020 - 01:50 AM)

Good lord. Yes, hopefully somebody smarter gets hold of that and shuts that nonsense down. 
 
The men making those complaints are ludicrous babies. There were dozens or hundreds of screenings they could attend - why do they need to object? They lost nothing. 
 
Can you classify women-only screenings as "discriminatory"? Sure, I guess you can, but why would you want to? What sort of man is so threatened by a cinema giving those women two hours of man-free movie? A sad, weird, pathetic kind of man with a startling lack of self awareness. This is a farce.


No. That's not how discrimination works. The lawsuit exists, and needs to exist, because there are still people that think discrimination against specific people is OK.
I finally got rid of that big white box.

These men have not taken this action to impart a lesson on discrimination. And again, they have also not been prevented from seeing that movie at that cinema. Nothing has been withheld from them. They're just petty little dudes who aren't smart enough to unpack their male privilege.

Discrimination laws are good, but this is the tiniest, most ridiculous thing to hang them on. This situation is not what those laws are for. These screenings do not constitute "unjust or prejudicial treatment of different categories of people on the grounds of race, age, or sex". If you think it's unjust or prejudicial that these men couldn't attend these particular screenings, which they only cared about because they were told that they were only for women... Well. I mean really. Let's worry about some of the many, many instances of serious systemic discrimination faced by women before we persecute this cinema for giving a handful of women a small, transient safe space to watch a comic book movie. There are a lot more women out there with a legitimate reason to welcome a man-free space than there are men with the same reasons to be uncomfortable when surrounded by women.

This probably isn't really the place for having an in-depth conversation because this is the comic books area, not P&R (and I don't want to have to warn myself :) ). But this whole silly situation would be funny if it wasn't so sad.

And thats the worst part of this farce. Their entire point being:

"Wonder Woman movie, yeah!"
"We are also offering select women only screenings."
"Whut? Why can't i go to those. RAGE!"

They are idiots that really don't understand what discrimination means. The fact that their complaint has been upheld is despress9ng to say the least.

That's part of the issue. These men understand exactly what the state of Texas calls "discrimination" and this is - on a technical level - one of those instances.

 

That said, Alamo has offered a truce, telling the men that they'll apologize on the official Alamo Facebook and give each of the named plaintiffs a DVD copy of "Wonder Woman". Again, technically this is all Alamo has to do in order to legally rectify the situation.


Yep.

This is one of those cases where the Judge needed to step in.  Yes, this is discrimination.  I find for the plantiff in the amount of $1.  

Have a nice day, jackasses.  

 

That's what I would have liked to have seen.

According to Texas law what they did was illegal, but only in the advertising of it. Also according to Texas law, they only restitution Alamo have to pay is to make sure the plaintiffs can see the movie, thus them offering them a Wonder Woman DVD (not bluray) each.

Basically, if a private group had rented out the theater for the night, it would have been legal. 

 

But since the theater itself is officially open to the public, we're now having the issues we're having. 

 

If nothing else, if this does go to court, we'll have official rulings later judges can use as precedent in future cases.

They could already see the movie! In all likelihood they probably had the ability to see the movie at that same cinema BEFORE the women-only screenings. Is this a sitcom?

 

Good to know that the "restitution" is not a great drama though.
