*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)

Wonderful audio separation and balance.

@  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 - 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)

@  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.

@  wonko the sane? : (21 November 2020 - 12:44 PM)

They'll make their money back if they include the metal thong...

@  TheMightyMol... : (21 November 2020 - 12:29 PM)

Is she popular enough in Japan that Takara would even try?

@  Paladin : (21 November 2020 - 11:23 AM)

depends. will that one also have a giant metal thong?

@  Bass X0 : (21 November 2020 - 11:10 AM)

Should there be a Masterpiece Windblade?

Targets are starting to actually get recent releases, but Walmart is still sitting on more of wave 1 than I've ever seen of any other toyline.

 

My Walmarts mostly didn't seem to get a ton of wave 1 in, which gave me hope for promptness in later waves there...

 

...and then they got those big aisle displays full of wave 1. Oh well.

Wheeljack sort of did have long/big arms back in G1 in both the cartoon and comic, allowing for variations in animation and art. Not as massive as his toy but yeah

Wheeljack_G1_1_MTMTE1_1276723714.jpg

(he also apparently had stubby legs and a huge-ass chest lol)


And of course this feature was homage by another iconic Wheeljack

PrimeWheeljack-HowToDraw.jpg

PrimeRIDtoy-WheeljackDeluxe.jpg


So I guess any guy who wants a short-armed Wheeljack really doesn't know anything about Transformers? And is probably one of those "fake geewuner boys" pretending to like them just cuz he likes the attention he gets from all the girls who actually do know about Transformers~

Looking at Unicron.com's screenshots, there's quite a few where his arms don't reach further down relative to his body than anybody else's, so I'm not sure if that's the intention.

Bay has already done four female TFs. Is this maybe one of those things Everybody Knows?

 

Not only that, but he explicitly said that he kept them out of the first movie because he felt he'd have to "explain" female TFs. Then during ROTF's development he decided "no, I really don't" and so he included them. While it's not impossible that Bay would go back on that (as he has with many other elements of the movies), the biggest hurdle has already been cleared.

 

That said, movie Windblade would probably end up as a fanboat that floated around on the fan instead of legs and after having one line would unceremoniously die by having her upper body shoved through the fan during a fight with Bonecrusher who came back because reasons. :p

I think he should use the "knight" Windblade concept art and have her as a knight who's been hidden on Earth for thousands of years.

Not that he would, but...

Given Michael Bay won't be directing, that's actually very plausible.

What makes you think Bay wont be doing the next one? Last Knight is his fourth 'final' Transformers movie.

I presume he meant the next TF movie to be released after TLK, which will be the Bumblebee movie, which is being directed by Travis Knight.

Nope. I meant the one that comes afterwards.

 

What? I'd want to take a step back after directing five movies in the same franchise, why wouldn't Michael Bay?

Bay has already done four female TFs. Is this maybe one of those things Everybody Knows?

 

I'm pretty sure this was born from his MTV interview regarding Arcee in Revenge of the Fallen:

 

 

"You know what? I didn't like Arcee," the filmmaker revealed exclusively to us Thursday night, "so I kill her later, all right?"

 

We caught up with the outspoken filmmaker at ShoWest, where he received a Director of the Year award. The special-effects-driven Bay told us that technological advances since 2007's "Transformers" are allowing him to grab more articulate, complex performances from his metallic leading actors — but still, at least one of his fictional stars turned out to be a bit disappointing.

 

"You know what? It's like actors," he explained, comparing his Transformers to flesh-and-blood stars Shia LaBeouf and Megan Fox. "There are certain actors that blossom on screen, and there are certain others where you're like, 'Yuck, I'm cutting them out of the movie.' "

 

So Bay decided to kill Arcee — a pink motorcycle who can be glimpsed in the movie's trailer during a chase scene in Japan. As some fans might remember, the death of Jazz in Bay's first "Transformers" film not only served as a reminder of the severity of the robot war, but also became one of the film's most touching moments. In the sequel, however, Bay was so eager to kill off Arcee that he had no desire to milk the moment for emotional impact.

 

"This isn't sad," he grinned, discussing Arcee's sudden death. "This is just 'get it out and get it over with.' "

 

I mean, sure, there have been four female Transformers in Bay's movies, but three of them he was happy to casually bump off to get out of the way because he clearly wasn't feeling them, and the fourth was a sexy college girl who wanted to bang you until she turned into a robot and subsequently hit with a car.  

 

Maybe he'd be more magnanimous towards Windblade.  Maybe he's being honest when he says "yeah I'm just not feeling her performance," and that he'd be happy to debut another female Transformer who would get a fair shake.  But we can probably understand folks being .... incredulous.

Alice, even as a robot, has significant screen time. In the same movie, Sideways, Rampage and a horde of other Decepticons die just as casually as the Arcees. Jolt barely appears. The Arcees aren't treated differently than anyone else.

She definitely had more time as a sexy sexy seductress, but humans always have more screentime than robots. She has a pretty significant run as a robot afterward. I'm sure she's onscreen more than Reedman or Jolt, for example.

 

I just don't see much reason to think Michael Bay has no use for females. You can question how intensely sexualized they are, without question, but both Mikaela and Carly have significant, proactive roles, and Mikaela's even includes being the one who can actually stand up for herself against Transformers. Reading anything anti-female into a general comment about Arcee (who, let's face it, he was probably struggling to remember during the interview) doesn't seem warranted.

But you never know. And it's possible that if Bee Movie does well, Paramount won't lean on him as hard as they presumably have in the past.

Yeah, I think the performance of... Filmblebee... will give us a lot more information about how the franchise might look going forward. But Bay or no Bay, I think it will be a long time before we get a movie that isn't trying to be Bay-esque. 

 

ANYWAY I hope TR Orion Pax has had his leak fixed by now. I think that's what the thread used to be about.

Well, this isn't the last wave, so I wouldn't worry about that.

EDIT: Ninja'd. To be specific, we still have one more wave of everything to be revealed (although we've seen Slugslinger already for the last Deluxe wave).

 

Ahh, Well, hopefully stores will restock when his wave comes out. Does anyone know if Overlord is in the next wave or is he a possible candidate for Last Wave syndrome?
