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.

@  CORVUS : (18 February 2020 - 04:33 PM)

Hook up your sprinkler system to a canister of healthy organic carrot-juice. The kids won't be able to get off your lawn fast enough.

Japan seems to have a tradition of murder things where cellphones facilitate the killing instead. Like King's Game and Doubt.

@  TheMightyMol... : (16 February 2020 - 05:17 PM)

Or there's just conveniently no reception, or all of their phones are dead at the same time. Or they're just stupid and forget about them.

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.

I think the concept of being educated and being able to educate is something that more people need more of in their lives.

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.

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.

My assumption is that he'll do something else and then realize he's up for Transformers again.

 

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?
