I think the only other Titan class character that would interest me after Scoponok would be Tidal Wave

@  TheMightyMol... : (24 February 2020 - 07:34 PM)

A Titan would have more room for other toys to hang out, assuming one has the table space for it.

@  Darth Gonzo : (24 February 2020 - 03:32 PM)

Play wise which would be better a Commander Class Aircraft Carrier Mode Broadside or a Titan Class Aircraft Carrier Mode Broadside?

@  PlutoniumBoss : (24 February 2020 - 01:53 PM)

I'd be interested in a deluxe or voyager Fort Max in Armada flashback red-and-green.

@  TheMightyMol... : (24 February 2020 - 10:49 AM)

I'd honestly be more interested in Commander-class Scorponok and Fort Max. I don't have the space for Titans.

@  Maximus Ambus : (24 February 2020 - 10:44 AM)

Make Commander class city bots to annoy collectors too

@  TheMightyMol... : (24 February 2020 - 10:43 AM)

Make two Broadsides. One Voyager-sized that only turns into a jet, and one Titan-sized that only turns into an aircraft carrier. Piss off everyone on both sides of the scale.

@  Rodimus Supreme : (24 February 2020 - 10:41 AM)

Since they seem to also go by the oh-so holy cartoon scale thing, he'd probably be a Commander Class figure.

@  wonko the sane? : (24 February 2020 - 10:34 AM)

Broadside is an aircraft carrier. He should probably be metroplex sized.

@  Rodimus Supreme : (24 February 2020 - 10:21 AM)

Broadside's more of a Commander Class.

@  Darth Gonzo : (24 February 2020 - 04:47 AM)

I think Broadside should be the next Titan Class figure.

@  wonko the sane? : (23 February 2020 - 09:38 PM)

I tan nicely! But also have a family history of cancer... so... yeah, pasty for me it is.

@  Otaku : (23 February 2020 - 04:22 PM)

I really do begin to get sunburned after about 5 minutes of direct exposure, nowadays.  Side effect of already being pasty then going on a particular medication.  Yay?

@  TheMightyMol... : (23 February 2020 - 01:36 PM)

It makes me burn. Accursed daystar.

@  Dekafox : (21 February 2020 - 06:25 PM)

Next you'll say they have Dominion Tank Police and L.I.L.Y.Cat

@  NotVeryKnightly : (21 February 2020 - 06:06 PM)

Bubblegum Crisis, going by several shouts down.

@  Tm_Silverclaw : (21 February 2020 - 05:38 PM)

@  Rhinox42 : (21 February 2020 - 01:19 PM)

Blugh, the english dub of BGC is atrocious.

@  wonko the sane? : (21 February 2020 - 07:02 AM)

I might need to update my software, or they face regional limitations, cause I found no evidence of either.

@  Steevy Maximus : (20 February 2020 - 10:31 PM)

DUDE! Starcom and COPS are on Tubi too!

@  Steevy Maximus : (20 February 2020 - 09:29 PM)

Spiffy! The english dub of Bubblegum Crisis on Tubi. It's gotten so hard to find these oldies on modern streaming services.

@  ▲ndrusi : (19 February 2020 - 02:34 PM)

Or do Japan's cultural values vary depending on exactly who you're trying to shut down?

@  ▲ndrusi : (19 February 2020 - 02:33 PM)

Could it be that, perhaps, these different cultural values might lead to a different approach seeming appropriate?

@  ▲ndrusi : (19 February 2020 - 02:32 PM)

Hm. Back when we were arguing about the Legends comic, I seem to recall being repeatedly told that Japan had different cultural values than the US (and therefore anyone who had a problem with anything at all was wrong to voice that opinion ever).

@  fourteenwings : (19 February 2020 - 07:23 AM)

Plus, as much as I hate to admit it, every single anime character is built to suit the audience's tastes so they buy more merch/do other things that allow $$$ to flow in the production committees direction, so the authenticity is certainly not for representation's sake.

@  fourteenwings : (19 February 2020 - 07:18 AM)

Both those anime air at midnight and are aimed at a very specific audience in a whole other media landscape. Major projects have press releases about almost everything, and there are groups just waiting to pat anybody on the back for doing what they want (GLAAD, HRC, etc)

@  B-Fox : (19 February 2020 - 03:16 AM)

It's funny that a friggin' anime about zombie idols and an anime about a school of anthropomorphic animals can have really positive trans characters WITHOUT a press release about their inclusion in the series prior to the episodes airing or having the creators announcing it on social media and patting themselves on the back for doing a thing.

@  TriBlurr : (18 February 2020 - 10:26 PM)

Vegan meat needs bacon

@  Paladin : (18 February 2020 - 08:43 PM)

vegan meat must taste delicious. they're grass-fed and regularly exercised....

@  wonko the sane? : (18 February 2020 - 06:57 PM)

Vegans are better than kids if you don't talk to them. They'll keep the lawn trimmed anyway.

@  TheMightyMol... : (18 February 2020 - 06:02 PM)

Do you want vegans? Because that's how you get vegans.

If anything the turtles are getting uglier. Just look at that one on the left!

Yet, there appears to be some heavenly glow descending from on high upon that left one.

 

That, or some UFO is ready to beam him up.

I just got home from the press screening.
This is very much a live action version of the original cartoon. The set pieces feel like a really good video game, the gadgets are cheesy like the original toys, the turtles are still spot on and so are Bebop and Rocksteady and even Krang, despite a deeper voice.
Casey was a waste and Amell should stick to TV.
The plot is very Saturday morning and there's a lot of super tech. Ya know, when the smart guy can use a computer to figure out anything. It's so much the cartoon is kinda crazy.
Don't expect much from Shredder. But if a let down there. The Technodrome was even better on screen. The only thing missing was the treads.

I really don't know whether hearing that a live action blockbuster feature film meant for mass audience consumption comes off as being more like a cheesy Saturday morning cartoon is a good thing or a bad thing.

Sounds like what a lot of fans are looking for, honestly. A live action version of the Fred Wolf cartoon. How well that does with everyone else, who knows; but Turtles is a property that I feel can pull off that level of silliness/camp without detracting from the movie.

 So Casey gets as much character as in the 80's cartoon. So he hit it dead on for the feel of the movie then :D

Regarding his look and vigilante status, Amell has said in interviews that the intent was to add some backstory, and then to build into what we're familiar with in later sequels.

If there's a third movie, and I'm sure there will be, if there's enough good will to keep him in the cast, this issue should he resolved.

For all my problems with the TMNT movies, giving Casey a backstory where he isn't an insane guy who just decides to become a vigilante for the hell of it is definitely not one of them.

Awesome. I've had five movies with the Turtles, April, and Splinter, and more than half of that had Shredder, too. Krang, Bebop, Rocksteady, and the Technodrome are the draw here. I mean, I might be into it anyway -- I didn't hate the first one -- but those four are literally what I'm interested in seeing realized on the big screen.

 

I have no expectations for Shredder except that I actually kinda liked Iron Shredder and this one looks like weaker sauce. But as noted above, don't care much.

 

Casey fits into the "more than half the movies" bit, too (which is an odd metric, seeing as there was an odd number prior to this). But between that, the 2003 cartoon, the 2012 cartoon, and the IDW comic, I was already disappointed when we didn't see a return to the Clint Eastwood-like psycho of the original cartoon.
