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 - 09:00 PM)

Vode An!

@  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)

One could headcanon this one as such.

@  Otaku : (29 November 2020 - 01:06 PM)

@Bass X0 Weird how they come close, with the likes of Onyx Primal and Nemesis Prime (Universe 2003), but no actual evil gorilla...

@  unluckiness : (28 November 2020 - 04:32 AM)

Decided to stick with the main cast from 2007 and a few assorted ones here and there.

@  TheMightyMol... : (27 November 2020 - 02:02 PM)

I said I wouldn't buy a lot, now I have seven. And at least three might be on the culling pile.

@  tigerhawk : (27 November 2020 - 11:44 AM)

"I'll just get one" I said now I have almost twenty Studio Series figures.

Just stick a Megatron head on Optimal Optimus.

@  Sabrblade : (25 November 2020 - 12:46 PM)

There was also an evil-looking black and gray redeco of the RobotMasters toy

@  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?

@  -LittleAutob... : (20 November 2020 - 12:46 PM)

EIGHT WORDS! THATS A RECORD! XD

@  wonko the sane? : (20 November 2020 - 09:08 AM)

So the first couple issues are out and it's pretty great so far. Nick Spencer finally does something awesome with Maria Hill and manages to work in all three Captain Americas for his 75th anniversary/and also big feature film.

 

Spencer also manages to work in The Beyonders from Hickman's Avengers run and we get the foundations of the upcoming Thunderbolts book as well.

 

Discuss!

by the first couple of issues do you mean welcome to pleasent hill and assault on pleasent hill?

 

Assult on pleasent hill 1 was a great read for me. considering a lot of dialogue - it was a great morality issue.


It's a Newcomic (apparently)

Yeah, Welcome and Assault.

 

I also love the wordplay. Pleasant Hill makes Maria Hill Pleasant.

I was surprised that things kicked off so quickly Alpha. I'm still not sure this is a terribly interesting story, but there's a lot of character stuff here that I enjoy and having been around through the debut of the original Thunderbolts, I'm really digging seeing the team resurface after the book's recent rest.

So this just ended with some stuff spinning out of it:

 

Maria Hill is on probation and probably won't be Director of SHIELD for much longer

Kobik the Child Cosmic Cube has become friends with Bucky and along with most of the original Thunderbolts escaping Pleasant Hill, will form the new team.

Steve Rogers is young again and Sam suggested they share the mantle, inspired by there being two Spider-Men.

Steve offers Rick Jones (who kickstarted this whole storyline by leaking that Maria Hill has been using Cosmic Cube fragments) a job. Possibly his and Sam's Oracle? Or maybe the new Director of SHIELD?

I skipped straight from the Alpha to the Omega and I don't feel I missed much. I was keen to read this when I heard that we were getting a new Quasar. Gruenwald's Quasar is one of my favourite books and I'm happy to see Wendell back and training someone up.

Still keen for more Thunderbolts too.

This, uh, this didn't really turn out to be much of a STORY, did it? The first two issues were a great kick-off, but it turns out they weren't a kick-off TO anything - the last issue was just a clip-show collection whose primary concern was setting up new books, rather than actually being a story in and of itself.

Very underwhelmed by how the new Quasar debuted.  About as interesting as someone joining a pickup raid group on an MMO.

No big splash page intro, no explanation of who Quasar or Wendell Vaughan is or what the quantum bands or are **who this woman is**... I assume she's been floating around in Spencer Cap run? Cause we all knew this story was to facilitate de-ageing Cap, but in the end-up it's basically turned out that - and instituting the new Thunderbolts - has been ALL it's been designed to do, and that didn't even happen IN the event book.

Will Marvel do a Graphic Novel collection of an important event series featuring a bunch of their major characters from a current theatrical blockbuster, you mean?

What happened to the Red Skull?  In Uncanny Avengers #6 he was shown hiding out in the basement of the old Avengers Mansion and now here he is in Pleasant Hill.  What happened?  How did he go from one place to another in a short amount of time.
