Fuzzy little thermal vampires...

@  TheMightyMol... : (03 December 2020 - 02:38 PM)

Well of course. Your spot now has your body heat in it. That's what the cat really desires.

@  TM2-Megatron : (03 December 2020 - 12:23 PM)

The pictures when you google that are adorable, but unfortunately my cat hates cat-sized beds. He does like getting in the way on human-sized beds, chairs and sofas, though. If you get up, watch out, 'cuz your spot will be gone when you return.

@  wonko the sane? : (03 December 2020 - 09:01 AM)

I learned that the famed ikea cat bed actually IS available in canada, but they called it a doll bed up here for some reason.

*good week

@  Steevy Maximus : (02 December 2020 - 05:35 PM)

It's been a good work for The Hunt: got Netflix Bumblebee (suck it Walmart!) and stopped at Walgreens and found a lone Bluestreak. I'm pretty much done until new stuff rolls out in February

@  tigerhawk : (02 December 2020 - 03:53 PM)

There's some fab fandubs of comic scenes on Youtube, it's MTMTE/LL mostly but there's some great stuff such as Tarn learning of Megatron's defection and Megatron talking to Ravage.

@  Steevy Maximus : (30 November 2020 - 09:31 PM)

@  Steevy Maximus : (30 November 2020 - 09:29 PM)

For Transformers The Movie 86

@  Steevy Maximus : (30 November 2020 - 09:28 PM)

I will say, the blu ray remaster, especially the audio is pretty spot on. Watching it on Apple TV has been enlightening.

@  SHIELD Agent 47 : (30 November 2020 - 09:00 PM)

Vode An!

@  SHIELD Agent 47 : (30 November 2020 - 08:59 PM)

I do not overly care for the Bad Batch, but it will be interesting to see what the animated series will bring to the table.

@  SHIELD Agent 47 : (30 November 2020 - 08:59 PM)

Alpha, Delta Squad, Omega Squad, and the Muunilinst 10 are quite the contrast to what we have at present in Disney canon.

@  SHIELD Agent 47 : (30 November 2020 - 08:57 PM)

Who else here read the pre-2008 Clone Commandos and ARC Troopers back in the day?

@  tigerhawk : (30 November 2020 - 05:04 PM)

Monoliths in Utah and Romania.

@  Sabrblade : (29 November 2020 - 05:11 PM)

Also, the face of the black redeco is painted gray.

@  Sabrblade : (29 November 2020 - 05:09 PM)

To be a little fair, the original was also lacking in more detailed color. The Telemocha Series figure fixed that.

@  TheMightyMol... : (29 November 2020 - 05:05 PM)

The unpainted face and all the greys make that look like a knockoff.

@  Sabrblade : (29 November 2020 - 05:01 PM)

One could headcanon this one as such.

Decided to stick with the main cast from 2007 and a few assorted ones here and there.

@  TheMightyMol... : (27 November 2020 - 02:02 PM)

I said I wouldn't buy a lot, now I have seven. And at least three might be on the culling pile.

@  tigerhawk : (27 November 2020 - 11:44 AM)

@  Sabrblade : (25 November 2020 - 12:46 PM)

There was also an evil-looking black and gray redeco of the RobotMasters toy

@  Arazyr : (25 November 2020 - 11:54 AM)

That's KIND-OF what I consider the Throne of the Primes Primal to be...

@  wonko the sane? : (25 November 2020 - 11:16 AM)

I would buy the hell out a nemesis primal...

@  Bass X0 : (25 November 2020 - 11:15 AM)

I'm surprised there's not been a Nemesis Primal given all the Nemesis Primes.

@  unluckiness : (23 November 2020 - 03:17 AM)

The real Drifts were the Windblades we made along the way

@  PlutoniumBoss : (23 November 2020 - 02:25 AM)

Drift-kun 2 Electric Boobylube

@  ▲ndrusi : (22 November 2020 - 11:36 PM)

I'm pretty sure Drift 2 was Empire of Stone.

@  Sabrblade : (22 November 2020 - 10:06 PM)

I thought people said Prime Wheeljack was Drift 2.

@  tigerhawk : (22 November 2020 - 03:51 PM)

Windblade was Drift.2.

@  TheMightyMol... : (22 November 2020 - 02:44 PM)

Drift with boobs.

@  Rycochet : (22 November 2020 - 11:50 AM)

I can't imagine a live action movie version of Windblade being all that different from Drift. Not my thing, but not the worst thing I've ever seen.

@  Bass X0 : (22 November 2020 - 09:54 AM)

The thought of Movie aesthetic Windblade makes me feel sick.

@  NotVeryKnightly : (22 November 2020 - 08:47 AM)

Though, the fact that Japanese people would pay for Windblade toys in the $30-40 range doesn't mean they'd pay however much MPs are going for now.

@  NotVeryKnightly : (22 November 2020 - 08:44 AM)

Back when I made a habit of checking Mandarake for pre-owned TFs, Windblade's toys went for surprisingly high prices. By which I mean not lower than the original price.

@  tigerhawk : (22 November 2020 - 08:15 AM)

If she's in the next movie you might get her.

@  unluckiness : (22 November 2020 - 07:58 AM)

Japan didn't get most of the IDW comics and are the target market for MP. They basically know windblade from a few crappy pack-in comics and a show that wasn't particularly popular there. Unless they start cranking out Cyberverse MPs, it's not very likely.

@  TheMightyMol... : (22 November 2020 - 04:24 AM)

Again, depends if she's popular enough in Japan to warrant it. Our view of which characters are popular is not the same as Takara's.

@  Bass X0 : (22 November 2020 - 01:53 AM)

So characters like Windblade then.

@  TheMightyMol... : (21 November 2020 - 07:19 PM)

They're complicated and expensive to design. By necessity, they're gonna be restricted to well-known characters who are more likely to sell.

@  Bass X0 : (21 November 2020 - 07:05 PM)

I don’t think Masterpiece toys should be restricted to only show characters.

@  Rycochet : (21 November 2020 - 03:09 PM)

If she wasn't in the Sunbow cartoon, Live Action movie or Beast Wars and can't be repainted from someone else, she's not getting an MP.

Y'know...  What is Casey's day job in other versions?  As far as I can remember, he's just some jobless dude hitting people as a hobby.

In the current cartoon on Nick, he's still a teenage student in school.

No, we don't all know everything but we should spread and share that what we do know.

If I'm consistently misspelling a word, I would want and expect people to correct me as should I imagine all decent people who know the value of good literacy.

Its just arrogant laziness to know you're spelling a word incorrectly and not correct yourself or ignore the advice when people do tell you how to spell a word correctly.

I want to ask a spoiler. For anyone that's seen the movie, is Shredder supposed to be the same character from the first or a different character with the same name? Strange that it's a different actor if it's the same person.

Which character from the first one do you mean? It's been awhile but IIRC that movie had the scientist dork who dresses in cyber armor that's based on the Shredder and his only seen in shadow boss who is meant to be the actual Shredder the armor is built for.

- ZacWilliam, I havn't seen it yet but I'm assuming this film features the second one.

Its not really a spoiler. Shredder didn't die at the end of the last movie. He's in police custody when the movie starts.

The only person that wore the cyber armor was Shredder.

Bebop and Rocksteady stole the movie.

 

Why was Shredder in it at all? Like, you could have had Krang interact with Stockman, cut Shredder out completely, no problem. It feels he was only there to establish him as him after the last movie had somebody else as him.

 

Jablonsky's score was excellent.

 

I'm surprised they went full on technodrome this early instead of saving that for movie 3.

Thats such a shame after the hoops the movie is jumping through to evoke the 80s toon feel in life action.

I wonder what it is thats turning people off to this one that didn't for the first.

Honestly after Deadpool, BvS, Captain America 3, and X-Men, movie going audiences might not have money left. This year is beyond over-saturated and the bubble on them was due to burst and TMNT ended up with the scantest of leftovers. And remember, people pay for the movie before they make up their mind about it. The first movie had dreams and nostalgia powering it, this movie had memory of a very average preceeding film.. I hope there will still be a sequel because this movie is all about the merchandising and whatever.
Woooo!

Movie was GREAT, especially compared to the first one. Tons of fun. 

 

Only gripe was the Krang intro scene. It felt SUPER rushed. Like, ridiculously so. No dramatic reveal for Krang, just IN YOUR FACE fast-talking slurping Trypticon voice and BAM! Shredder's in on his plan just like that. Really off-setting, especially so early in the film. 

 

But hey, I enjoyed it enough to get past those butt-ugly turtles, so they did well.

Saw it this morning. This movie was even more of a mess than Transformers: Age of Extinction, with plenty nonsensical moments and a plot that was all over the place and extremely rushed in several areas... but MAN was it boatloads more FUN than it had any right to be! There were so many wonderfully awesome and entertainingly endearing moments in this movie that made it so very hard to dislike it. Even though the plot holes stood out more obvious than the giant hole in the sky that the Technodrome came through, there was just so much that I was unashamedly geeking out over like no tomorrow! The Turtles were still great (though, Leo was an angsty jerk in certain parts) and both Bebop and Rocksteady were fantastic scene-stealers. Like with the first movie, pretty much every character who wasn't a mutant (so, every human character) was subpar, but I liked Casey. I didn't think he was that great or even a good representation of the Casey Jones character that we all know and love, but on his own, he felt like the most decent human of the cast (which really isn't saying much, but still). But there was so much stupid stuff in this movie like Baxter Stockman, April's unnecessary antics, the stuff with Krang that basically felt like the audience and the characters were already supposed to know who he is and what his deal is (Krang's whole plot felt very rushed and tacked on despite most of the rest of the movie revolving almost entirely around it), and so many non-sequitur moments that contributed nothing to the story and felt more like random detours. And yet... gaaaagh, the action scenes were so stinkin' FUN! Absurd, but FUN! It really was like a Saturday morning cartoon, but one written for childlike adults rather than actual children, and yet so much the non-nutritional aspects of the film were just so enjoyable. There was just so much JOY in this movie! It's dumb and silly, but it's the right kind of dumb and silly. It strongly feels like there could have been so much more to improve this subpar product of a movie, and yet the final product that we got still had a ton of Turtle-rific moments to love and adore. It's probably best described as one of the most pleasurable of guilty pleasure movies out there.

Only just saw it. Was really impressed with the Technodrome, hehe. They put in the angst with wanting to be human and I automatically flashed back to 'give it to Splinter!' before I realized it's not the toon version, haha. Bebop and Rocksteady weren't dopey oafs but were more aggressive, strange but still ok. Rocksteady can operate a tank, haha. Krang shouldn't leave his armor really. Well, it was dumb but I wouldn't mind seeing a third film. Such a shame.
