We have a cornfield? Can I get a few ears?

@  Kalidor : (16 July 2019 - 12:56 PM)

And lastly, if it becomes too much hassle to deal with - it might just get sent into the cornfield and replaced with a Discord box anyway. So cool it.

@  Kalidor : (16 July 2019 - 12:55 PM)

Second thing is we do actually have the ability to ban users specifically from using Shoutbox if it's being abused like that

@  Kalidor : (16 July 2019 - 12:55 PM)

Hey all - just a reminder and heads up. The Shoutbox has been kept here as a courtesy because it's what you folks like in lieu of Discord - but a few things to remember is that P&R should stay in P&R and isn't really something that needs to be dragged out here in the most public of spaces.

@  Nevermore : (16 July 2019 - 11:04 AM)

You can make a new one. I doubt anybody would stop you.

@  Nevermore : (16 July 2019 - 10:16 AM)

There was a thread but it appears to have disappeared. Might have been lost in one of the older forum sweeps.

@  NotVeryKnightly : (16 July 2019 - 09:58 AM)

Yeah this is pretty much circumventing the fact that we have different rules for political talk.

@  fourteenwings : (16 July 2019 - 09:55 AM)

Okay, so, basically, can we not do politics in here anymore? I mean, considering how often @Nevermore, you talk about your work conditions, don't you think it's time for a dedicated thread in P&R?

@  unluckiness : (16 July 2019 - 09:39 AM)

@  SHIELD Agent 47 : (16 July 2019 - 08:52 AM)

It's amusing how so many (U.S.) wankers in this world love to whine "capitalism good socialism bad!" in the abstract while simultaneously pretending that megacorporations dominating de facto monopolies is anathema to the core capitalistic principle of competition benefits everyone.

@  unluckiness : (16 July 2019 - 05:17 AM)

I know Shockwave's super mode is pretty lame and Magnus is kinda greebly but it's not that bad.

@  TM2-Megatron : (16 July 2019 - 12:38 AM)

Though with the luck and caliber of leaders we've had of late in the darkest timeline, maybe it's too much to hope for.

@  TM2-Megatron : (16 July 2019 - 12:36 AM)

Just like democracy, it's not perfect but better than the present alternatives. Capitalism as it's practiced today won't be able to weather the coming wave of automation, though. Best to plan for it and hope for a gentle transition rather than the aforementioned collapse

@  unluckiness : (16 July 2019 - 12:27 AM)

Capitalism is the worst amiright? Sent from my iPhone

@  Vexwing : (15 July 2019 - 11:24 PM)

Because the collapse is gonna be just great.

@  TM2-Megatron : (15 July 2019 - 10:41 PM)

Let's hope this is late stage and we're on the cusp of something better.

@  abates : (15 July 2019 - 09:45 PM)

Late stage capitalism is the absolute best.

@  TheMightyMol... : (15 July 2019 - 01:33 PM)

So, welcome to all retail, everywhere.

@  Nevermore : (15 July 2019 - 01:24 PM)

Oh, and Greenpeace also conducted a protest at a German Amazon facility, to protest against Amazon's practice of throwing customer returns in the trash.

@  Nevermore : (15 July 2019 - 01:17 PM)

Right, because with Amazon, it's just the employees that have to step in dog shit while having no space to breathe.[/slightexaggeration]

So my local target finally restocked this weekend after I have gotten all the deluxes that I wanted to get. I did finally get to see Quake and Crock and while they were tempting to get, I really don't have room for them, and I don't need them in  my CHUG collection.

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.

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?

Pretty much the only leaders that I have seen are Blaster and Soundwave. I saw a Optimus a couple times, and Sixshot once.

 

I say that to bring up the point that the sheer size and price of this figure might make him rare this late into the line.
