I watched L.I.L.Y.Cat on there a while back, it was surprisingly good.

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

Blugh, the english dub of BGC is atrocious.

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

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.

@  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.

@  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.

@  TheMightyMol... : (18 February 2020 - 03:59 PM)

Just use the hose.

@  wonko the sane? : (18 February 2020 - 03:52 PM)

Ask bing. It'll be a FAR more effective answer.

@  TrnsfrmGod : (18 February 2020 - 03:26 PM)

Google, how do I get those durned kids off my lawn?

@  TrnsfrmGod : (18 February 2020 - 03:26 PM)

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

Unreleased G2 Sandstorm Prototype Selling Online

A prototype of the unreleased Generation 2 toy Sandstorm is selling on auction site Taobao.  This redeco of the G1 seeker mold was long thought to be a Ramjet redeco and more recently was revealed to have been intended to be a new character.  This is a character I personally hadn't been aware of, so this is exciting!  But it's not $3073 of exciting (the price) - at least not for me.  Is it for you?

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.

I have him as Shattered Glass Sandstorm who crossed over to the positive universe and reformatted himself to become a member of Battle Gaia.

I do like the idea of Generations Blitzwing as a combination of this Sandstorm and Battle Gaia Sandstorm. As for characterisation... I got nothing.

Black Death Starscream is totally the same character as Robotmasters Black Starscream, and a counterpart of Starscream Clone Black Version, though. ("Nightfall", perhaps?)

If I could drop the name "Sandstorm", he would be a non-movie Breakaway who defected from the Decepticon Seekers.

An entry of Ask Vector Prime featured him! Didn't give any personality but placed him in his reality's battle of Sherman Dam.

Don't you mean "Jungle Attack" Starscream on that last one?

My headcanon is that the sky blue/navy blue Ramjet deco represents both a new G1 Seeker and the Shattered Glass version of Ramjet.

I say Hasbro should take the CW Starscream mold, and start from the back of the line. Give us Sandstorm, Black Death Starscream, sky blue Ramjet, jungle Ramjet, and Redwing, and then get around to the Rainmakers and the 1984/1985 toys.

Eh, as much as I like Seekers, I feel that Seekers are best a deluxe or voyager size, not leader. But I suppose the leader class is rather fitting of High Chancellor Starscream of the Republic of Cybertron in IDW G1.

What I think would be more fitting from the Generations Jetfire mold is Skyquake/Scrash. With regard to that though, I guess the Generations Jetfire mold would also be good for an update of Machine Wars Starscream.

My headcanon is that the sky blue/navy blue Ramjet deco represents both a new G1 Seeker and the Shattered Glass version of Ramjet.

 

Yeah, I will agree that toy being Shattered Glass Ramjet's color scheme, but I would object to making it a new G1 seeker.

 

Yeah, no. Unless REALLY desperate for ideas, those wouldn't have happened

 

I would like to think you're joking, as we just got Oilmaster, Sergeant Hound and General Optimus Prime.

 

I do like the idea of Generations Blitzwing as a combination of this Sandstorm and Battle Gaia Sandstorm.

 

Yeah, that's what I want, but from Doubledealer or with a new head. He would have different insignias on each of his modes. SG Decepticon insignia in robot mode, G1 Decepticon insignia in tank mode (with the words "BATTLE GAIA" visible to reinforce the point) and G2 Decepticon insignia in jet mode.
