My Allspark has never heard of a mother.

I haven't been up there in a while but one of the Walmarts around here still has AOE deluxes out. Some of the CVSs do too.

@  wonko the sane? : (22 February 2017 - 09:34 PM)

It's been the same thing in local stores for ages up here.

@  BlackMax : (22 February 2017 - 09:33 PM)

One near me is the same - I swear they have over forty Deluxes there, all from many months ago.

@  Telly : (22 February 2017 - 07:43 PM)

My Walmart had a Generations Rattrap hanging for the past 2 and a half years, and in trying to clearance it, inadvertently marked down the entire Generations Deluxe assortment.

A shelf warmer's ultimate revenge: being around long enough that in trying to clearance it...the store marks down the entire SKU!

@  NotVeryKnightly : (22 February 2017 - 07:59 AM)

Eh, he would've gotten beaten up if the government sent just about anyone.

@  Pennpenn : (22 February 2017 - 07:56 AM)

Regardless, literally everything I've ever seen (and a lot on tfwiki) attributes Megatron's slide into violence to Whirl beating him up while in custody. Maybe not like flicking a switch but Megatron's line "You made me. You taught me words were weightless without force" kinda spells it out.

@  NotVeryKnightly : (22 February 2017 - 07:38 AM)

I'm not sure if there even was a specific turning point, but he didn't seem kill happy yet when he was with Terminus, and that was after Whirl beating him up.

@  NotVeryKnightly : (22 February 2017 - 07:24 AM)

It was also before any sort of uprising or him actually doing much of anything.

@  Pennpenn : (22 February 2017 - 07:20 AM)

I mean, the whole thing didn't start as "the great war". It was an uprising that eventually morphed into a the war.

@  Pennpenn : (22 February 2017 - 07:17 AM)

Yeah, of course it's before the war, Whirl beating Megatron while he was in custody was the tipping point that made Megatron turn violent.

@  RC85747 : (22 February 2017 - 07:08 AM)

hascon

@  NotVeryKnightly : (22 February 2017 - 05:12 AM)

But the thing with Whirl was before he started the war.

@  Pennpenn : (22 February 2017 - 03:28 AM)

Like so many awful things in that universe, it's basically Whirl's fault.

@  Telly : (22 February 2017 - 12:51 AM)

for about 10 minutes. then he got all kill happy

@  SHIELD Agent 47 : (21 February 2017 - 10:27 PM)

Wouldn't IDW Megatron kind of count since his main reason for instigating the Great War was to overthrow the Functionist social order?

@  Black Hat : (21 February 2017 - 04:05 PM)

(I haven't read IDW at all please don't sue me)

@  Black Hat : (21 February 2017 - 04:04 PM)

Seems more like they had Bats unknowingly equate 'arch-enemy' to 'girlfriend'. :D

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.

It's neat that this film is willing to casually do stuff like "well, we've got Rosario Dawson voicing her so Batgirl is black, sure."

(Plus the amazing "Two-Face from the parallel universe where Billy Dee Williams didn't get replaced" thing they're doing.)

Is it wrong to be disappointed that there's steam and water that's not made out of bricks in this movie?


In light of the new trailer, I gotta admit the steam and fog gives this movie a good, different feel from TLM.

The water is alright too, I guess brick water might not work in the scenes they need water in.

It's bizarre how I'd much rather DC just stuck to making LEGO superhero movies instead of continuing to plod along with their live-action efforts.  Hopefully there are a few more digs at Batman V Superman in this one.

Black-Latina, from the looks of it (like Rosario herself). Some spoilery LEGO sets show a brown-skinned Gordon, too, as well as Babs in costume. Dunno if they accurately reflect what's going into the movie, but they're a thing that exists.

 

Also worth noting is that this is indeed a sequel to The LEGO Movie, or at least a side-quel. Batman retains his status as a Master Builder.

Only LEGO proprietary characters are yellow. Licensed characters run the gamut of skin tones. A yellow Lando Calrissian would look weird.

Which is all well and good, but what distinguishes just plain Black from Black-Latina so that you can tell?  They all have the same facial features.  A medium-brown Lego could be any number of ethnicities.  What says specifically Black-Latina here?

Aside from the tan color, it can only be assumed since Rosario Dawson is doing the voice. (Herself being Irish - Afro Latina)

Black Lego characters tend to use a darker shade of brown than the tan colour used as a "middle" shade. Compare:

Batgirl has the lighter tone.

So if Rosario's Babs is the same shade as Kanan, what exactly makes hers read as Black-Latina other than her voice actress?  Because no one is looking at Kanan and thinking Black-Latino.

Yeah. Which makes it weird that Ezra, who's darker than Kanan in the show, uses the "white" skintone.

 

So if Rosario's Babs is the same shade as Kanan, what exactly makes hers read as Black-Latina other than her voice actress?  Because no one is looking at Kanan and thinking Black-Latino.

 

Because she's not using the "white" skintone that Batgirl traditionally has and the most likely explanation is that it's to match her voice actress?

 

(Oh, and am I the only one who was baffled that people think Kanan's white? His facial features and skintone suggest that he's middle-Eastern or Asian, to me.)

I didn't think white, but wasn't thinking any portion of him was black.

 

I was thinking some kind of Hispanic.  Which when you think of this version of Batgirl it makes sense why he's that color.

 

The whole Batgirl thing makes perfect sense to me though.  I like it.
