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)

@  wonko the sane? : (23 June 2017 - 06:16 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 - 04:06 PM)

Wow, that was supposed to :shout" hours ago...

@  Hg Dragon : (22 June 2017 - 04:05 PM)

Indeed. Especially on opening week. We're talking avg, 5-8%. It's more at your discount/sub-run houses.

AMC knows it, freakin $7 for a regular drink

@  Paladin : (22 June 2017 - 08:22 AM)

and if you want to support your theaters, buy more concessions. because they get SHIT from the ticket sales...

@  Hg Dragon : (22 June 2017 - 08:15 AM)

So, we charged an extra $1 per. F'em

@  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.

@  Hg Dragon : (22 June 2017 - 08:12 AM)

Can't blame the theater totally for those ticket prices. The studios have a say in them as well.

@  Noideaforaname : (22 June 2017 - 12:00 AM)

Charge 'em for the lice! Extra for the mice! Two percent for looking in the mirror twice!

@  TM2-Megatron : (21 June 2017 - 11:45 PM)

Even here in Canada where price gouging is commonplace, IMAX 3-D is still $19.50

@  TM2-Megatron : (21 June 2017 - 11:44 PM)

$27 a ticket? That's ludicrous

@  Sean Whitmore : (21 June 2017 - 11:40 PM)

I gave up on IMAX this year. I was just about able to put up with $20 per ticket, but by the time the new Kong came out, my theater started charging $27 per. They must be outside their damn minds.

@  unitremover : (21 June 2017 - 10:50 PM)

I paid for a ticket to a 2D showing but they showed it in 3D anyways for some reason. I think me taking an Ibuprofen before I went for other reasons is the only reason I didn't walk out with a massive headache.

@  TM2-Megatron : (21 June 2017 - 10:38 PM)

One thing I'll give Bay and/or the promoters of this film... I like how they've advertised on the poster that this was actually shot with real, IMAX 3-D cameras. I wish the marketing of other films exhibited a similar interest in the quality of the equipment used. Hell, for some films, being visually interesting is about all they have going for them

@  TM2-Megatron : (21 June 2017 - 10:35 PM)

I assume the Autobots will be even bigger assholes in this one, especially Optimus

@  TM2-Megatron : (21 June 2017 - 10:35 PM)

I have my ticket to see it in IMAX this Saturday... looking forward to another bizarre, 3 hour spectacle of something or other

@  wonko the sane? : (21 June 2017 - 08:58 PM)

Bay already said he won't do another... but what does a persons word mean these days anyway. Doesn't really matter how bad the movies are (or aren't. You know, whatever floats your goat.) so long as they make money. And his flicks do make money.

@  Telly : (21 June 2017 - 06:12 PM)

maybe this one will do poor enough that theyll have to rethink their entire strategy going forward. and hopefully this WILL be bays last one (specially if it does do poorly). well, rethink after bumblebee anyway

@  wonko the sane? : (21 June 2017 - 06:07 PM)

Yeah... the reception for the movie has been... mixed to poor to say the least. Thanksfully, I gave up on the bayverse films after the first one.

@  Telly : (21 June 2017 - 05:46 PM)

well theres SOMETHING showing in movie theaters. whether it can actually be CALLED a "movie" seems to be debatable

@  Patchouli Kn... : (21 June 2017 - 05:45 PM)

"Bowdlerizing" basically means censorship, in the "removing anything the person in charge of the editing considers unsuitable for children" sense.

@  Foffy : (21 June 2017 - 01:38 PM)

Sorry, not sure what happened there. Shout edited; link should work now.

@  Robowang : (21 June 2017 - 01:29 PM)

So bowdlerizing is sending someone to a 404 link?

http://tvtropes.org/...Main/Bowdlerise

@  Robowang : (21 June 2017 - 09:46 AM)

What the hell is "bowdlerlize"?

@  unluckiness : (21 June 2017 - 08:39 AM)

Language evolves. As long as enough people know what the other's talking about, they'll use whatever term's handy despite incorrect etymology or meaning.

@  NotVeryKnightly : (21 June 2017 - 06:48 AM)

Just saying, it doesn't suggest that Xanatos "changed the face of cartoon villainy", which would require something like influence of Xanatos himself on cartoons in general. His name being used as a shorthand on the internet isn't really relevant to this, especially when it's not about his fame specifically.

@  Patchouli Kn... : (21 June 2017 - 05:36 AM)

The English language is a bit like that, though. We know what it means to bowdlerize something, even if very few of us remember Thomas Bowdler.

@  NotVeryKnightly : (21 June 2017 - 01:58 AM)

The Grandfather Clause page outright says that Xanatos Gambit is kept at that name not because Xanatos is super famous and influential but simply because the term itself is used a lot on the internet.

@  NotVeryKnightly : (21 June 2017 - 01:53 AM)

The site's had a history of being weirdly biased to naming things after specific examples even when it's not the best choice, though it used to be worse (i.e. Spikeification)

@  NotVeryKnightly : (21 June 2017 - 01:49 AM)

TVT's naming choice is hardly proof of that a character "changed the face of cartoon villainy".

@  RichardT1977 : (20 June 2017 - 10:47 PM)

I'd say he's second only to the Big Bad of "Watchmen" in that regard (younger fans sometimes check out this website, and I'd rather not spoil his identity until they're old enough to read the comic).

I'll be honest the only way I'm buying that Scourge is if I decide I like the Titanmaster gimmick so much that I want every little head guy to mix and match. It's not the worst thing ever, but the Gen version just looks better in pretty much every way aesthetics wise.

ZacWilliam, that said I can see myself buying it for the head really. We'll see...

Pretty much where I'm at with the line.

 

For the larger figures, I'm pretty much only in it for the ones that were actually Headmasters in G1 (although I'll get PMOP and might get Galvatron and Alpha Trion for those characters regardless of gimmick). But I could EASILY see myself becoming enamored with the mini-figs and their interactions with the larger figures as vehicles and bases.

Episode 119
Rumors for 7/30/2015

1. Blaster is Leader Class.
2. Soundwave is Leader Class.
3. Leader Class Optimus Prime's head will turn into a Ginrai/High-Q. No word on whether it has a base mode or Roller, but Combiner Wars Ultra Magnus can do a base mode, so it's likely.
4. It looks like the Headmasters will fit on Generations Voyager Brainstorm.
5. It does not look like Cerebros will have a vehicle mode.
6. Titans Return will be very season 3/4 and The Rebirth centric. Think twice before buying third party Headmasters. (they might be Voyager size).
7. Headmasters will all come with a small accessory/partner who is a vehicle for the Autobots or a creature for the Decepticons, that the head can connect to. These accessories have 5mm pegs, for possible weapon modes.
8. For the Deluxes in Titan Wars, expect the 1986 movie robots in "2005" Cybertronian alt modes, like Blurr, Hot Rod and Kup.

 

Apparently Kup and Hot Rod were mentioned in one of the podcasts and went unreported (?) until now. 

 

Obviously people assumed a new Hot Rod was coming based on the Junkion set.

I still think that choosing to do the Movie characters as Headmsters is a bad idea. Pretty much all of them have head shapes or protrusions incompatible with the general Headmaster "fold into a cube" transformation unless they have helmets to complete the look like the bigger toys.

Kup could work as a Headmaster.  Hot Rod (either IDW or Movie) would be more difficult.

 

Though they did round Brainstorm's head up quite a bit.

 

Am I the only one who finds it funny that Chromedome has the better (IMO) toy colors for his head rather than the IDW colors?  Especially when the TFSS version originally had the toy colors (while not IDW accurate surely are the more stand out choice) and were then changed due to fan demand.  :D

 

As for why I like the original head colors better it's because the helmet, face, and eyes don't end up all blended in together.  :doh

I hope that the Cyclone Minicons show Hasbro that they can make robots out of near-spheroid shapes IF they actually plan a Hot Rod.

Because a square-headed Hot Rod would be...  :puke

I do wonder if Hot Rod will be full on Movie like Blurr and Scourge or if he'll be IDW based like Chromedome.

 

Or even possibly toy based like Hardhead.

 

We have the Masterpiece coming up, but we haven't gotten a really good Movie or IDW style Hot Rod figure (the Classics one hasn't aged that well) so I could see them going either way.

I'd imagine that the Horrocons, being triple changers, would likely be voyagers rather then deluxe, and we've not see too many voyagers for the line yet. I half expect Galvatron to be remolded into one of them.
