Because people want some approximation of the look and feel of the vintage console and playing experience? It's not like the Mini-Snes is being produced instead of these games being released on the switch VC, that'll happen eventually anyway

@  RichardT1977 : (26 June 2017 - 06:39 PM)

Sega did it with some of their Genesis titles for the PS3 and XBox 360, and Midway did the same. Several times.

@  RichardT1977 : (26 June 2017 - 06:39 PM)

Instead of making classic consoles with classic games built in, why not release those games in classic sets for the Switch?

@  Rycochet : (26 June 2017 - 06:25 PM)

The fate of 2002 MOTU still makes me sad, I loved that line.

@  Tm_Silverclaw : (26 June 2017 - 05:59 PM)

Bah. There are many many toys rarer than Movieverse toys. Any character that wasn't He-Man or Skeletor for instance! :)

@  Paladin : (26 June 2017 - 05:16 PM)

Nintendo consoles are the only things rarer than new waves of Movieverse toys.

@  Telly : (26 June 2017 - 04:12 PM)

*nevermind*

@  TM2-Megatron : (26 June 2017 - 03:48 PM)

Nintendo claims they'll be producing "significantly more" units of the SNES, so maybe there's a chance. It'd be better this time if they just took pre-orders, and based their production on that

@  Dracula : (26 June 2017 - 03:46 PM)

Nobody is getting that.

@  Bass X0 : (26 June 2017 - 03:10 PM)

Anyone getting the SNES Classic with StarFox 2?

Preorders just got posted at BBTS...

@  SHIELD Agent 47 : (26 June 2017 - 09:52 AM)

I have yet to see any TR wave 5 items at retail in my area, only in Internet reports from overseas.

@  unluckiness : (26 June 2017 - 09:28 AM)

They're clogging shelves here, which is odd. I expected the Generations toys to be somewhat cut down in favor of movie stuff.

@  Pennpenn : (26 June 2017 - 08:11 AM)

I dunno, I got a bunch of "Blitzwing and Octone cosplaying as Megatron and Optimus Prime" in my local TRU, does that help?

@  Paladin : (26 June 2017 - 07:52 AM)

so will TitanReturns Blitzwing & Octone ever actually come out or have they just vanished into neverland?

@  Dekafox : (26 June 2017 - 07:10 AM)

With explosions instead of pouches and pockets.

@  Nevermore : (26 June 2017 - 02:45 AM)

Michael Bay is the Rob Liefeld of the movie industry.

@  PlutoniumBoss : (26 June 2017 - 02:25 AM)

I took a mega-deuce once. It was quite the epic battle.

@  TheMightyMol... : (26 June 2017 - 02:01 AM)

Now if we could explode Justin Bieber, I might pay to watch it.

@  NotVeryKnightly : (25 June 2017 - 11:47 PM)

Bieber isn't nearly as over-the-top as explosions director.

@  Bass X0 : (25 June 2017 - 11:35 PM)

Michael Bay is Justin Bieber of the movie industry- everyone makes fun out of his over- the- top -style but he keeps pulling in huge amounts of money

@  Patchouli Kn... : (25 June 2017 - 07:10 PM)

Ah.

@  Dracula : (25 June 2017 - 07:07 PM)

It's pronounced like Megadeus

@  Patchouli Kn... : (25 June 2017 - 06:59 PM)

Is the "Zeus" pronounced like "Zoose" or "Zayus?"

@  Dracula : (25 June 2017 - 05:47 PM)

sorry I saw the name and just got excited

@  Dracula : (25 June 2017 - 05:47 PM)

NITRO ZEUS

@  Paladin : (25 June 2017 - 06:57 AM)

nobody here has moved past Wave 1. maybe if they hadn't crammed it with repaints....

@  Noideaforaname : (25 June 2017 - 06:46 AM)

Nitro's gonna be a pain in the butt to find, isn't he?

@  Pennpenn : (25 June 2017 - 03:51 AM)

Actually, on the subject of TLK toys, the voyager Nitro Zues or whatver looks pretty good. If I see it cheap I might give it to the Thunderwing head.

@  Pennpenn : (24 June 2017 - 09:58 PM)

Been playing a bit of Saints Row 4 and honestly the Blast Blast is hilariously overpowered.

@  Rycochet : (24 June 2017 - 05:28 PM)

And a better headsculpt.

@  unluckiness : (24 June 2017 - 05:23 PM)

It actually has half decent gimmicks too.

@  TheMightyMol... : (24 June 2017 - 04:03 PM)

It's still crap but at least it takes up less space.

@  Rycochet : (24 June 2017 - 10:31 AM)

I'd rather have Armada Sideswipe than Alternator Sideswipe.

@  Tm_Silverclaw : (24 June 2017 - 09:50 AM)

What he's really doing is buying all the sideswipe, so that after the apocolypse.. He'll have an army to take ove the world!

@  unluckiness : (24 June 2017 - 09:00 AM)

We could be taking this the wrong way. What if this person means to sacrifice their own money to prevent Armada Sideswipes from falling into the hands of those who don't know better?

@  Rycochet : (24 June 2017 - 06:26 AM)

People say silly things online all the time, usually followed by a smilie or a wink. Take away the context and they go from being a joke to absurd hyperbole.

@  TheMightyMol... : (24 June 2017 - 06:07 AM)

But that would miss the entire point of hyperbole.

@  Pennpenn : (24 June 2017 - 06:03 AM)

Well that's a stupid attitude from someone who would waste a lot of money. I mean, they should just... not buy movie toys?

@  Bass X0 : (24 June 2017 - 04:52 AM)

Most insane thing I read of the day: "I would rather buy 100 Armada Sideswipes and PRiD Airachnids than buy any Bayformers crap"

@  Nevermore : (23 June 2017 - 06:10 PM)

His dialogue is full of allusions to his infamous lookalike, though sometimes as subversions. Oh, and sometimes he sings Karaoke. Check his rendition of "My Way", it's on Youtube.

How weird is it that a film made of plastic toys feels LESS artificial than the actual DC Comics movie released this year?

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.

Yeah, I thought that was a pity too. They seem to be being more liberal with letting the minifig limbs flex in ways the hinges wouldn't allow too, and I think did Batman's cowl piece change shape for emoting once or twice?

It did, but I can forgive that given that it's similar to the lego faces changing shape in the lego movie - have to have the expressive eyes

I'm actually hoping we get some more of Lego Bruce Wayne in this movie. We got a little in the first movie, but here we see Batman still wearing his mask even in the house. I get that it's part of the humor, but Bruce is still supposed to be an important part of Batman's life and self-identity as well. Even if it only one scene, Bats needs to give his mask a break at some point in the movie and let the man under the mask get some face time.

I think they're certainly letting them get away with more 'flexible' posing, but they were perfectly happy with 'impossible' poses in The LEGO Movie too.

Nah.  
This Bruce is all about being emo and writing songs about "no parents."

This isn't the Bruce who's suave and the beau of the gala.

 

This is a narcissistic Batman who is about as far removed from the classical Batman (and by that virtue, Bruce as well) as possible.  So much to the fact, that at some point his west becomes east again, and he mirrors aspects of the classical Batman in an odd, satirical, dark-humour sort of way that can only be described as sublime.

 

I am totally on-board for that, too, btw.

Batman wearing his mask around the house is exactly how this Batman should be.  I don't want him to turn it "off" at any point to pretend to be some pretty-boy billionaire.

 

Hell, I want him to show up to a WayneTech meeting being his normal dickish self.

 

If I want to watch classical BatmanB/Bruce, I have BTAS for that.
