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.

@  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)

@  NotVeryKnightly : (16 February 2020 - 05:21 PM)

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

@  TheMightyMol... : (16 February 2020 - 05:17 PM)

Or there's just conveniently no reception, or all of their phones are dead at the same time. Or they're just stupid and forget about them.

@  Patch : (16 February 2020 - 04:41 PM)

Now the slasher villain has to go and knock over the nearest cell tower before butchering horny teenagers.

@  TheMightyMol... : (16 February 2020 - 03:54 PM)

Think of all the horror and mystery movies that involve the bad guys cutting the phone line. Now think about how many people don't even have a land line to cut anymore.

@  Telly : (16 February 2020 - 03:47 PM)

its like that scene in commando. the bad guy has to get to a phone to call the big bad to tell him arnold isnt on the plane. that wouldnt happen today

@  Rycochet : (16 February 2020 - 03:18 PM)

Watching early episodes of the x-files will make you feel super old once you start to notice the techology they use, and the technology they lack.

Makes you feel old, don't it?

@  Maximus Ambus : (14 February 2020 - 02:38 PM)

While browsing Youtube vids I read these comments: 'The X Files is such an underrated show' and another 'Brent Spiner is a underrated actor' I want to punch something.

I'm betting it's Cerebros' head.

Interesting link NightViper sent me about the MP Black Convoy, the one at AmiAmi has teal stripes and yellow clear parts on his waist. This imagery never existed prior to this release. Changes to distinguish this from the original? http://amiami.jp/top...Y-RBT-2738-S001

Apparently there are links dating back to 2012 with this image attached to it. So it is a very old outdated image.

Based on this it says Octane and Bumblebee have new Headmasters.

Though cartoon based, Octane's face isn't so great. So I'd be down for a new head if true.

I wonder what Perceptor comes with since he's Slugslinger's cost but without the Targetmaster. Swoop's vehicle?

I'm hoping for a Targetmaster painted to look like Nijika. Not one sculpted to look like her in any way, but lots of ill fitting paint details slapped on an otherwise beefy robot form.

It's be awesome if he had something painted like Ninjika. Like the Fun Pub concept.

I do expect something like that when they get to Windblade.

does anybody have instructions for the base mode they gave Black Convoy in the comic?


"Disabled people donít have special needs. We have very reasonable human needs. Our needs include freedom from abuse, violence, and mistreatment, the right to autonomy and self-direction, the right to represent ourselves, equal opportunity for education and employment, the right to accommodation, and societal inclusion and acceptance.

The need for accommodation isnít a ďspecial needĒ. Itís a basic human right. Itís a leveling of the playing field that allows us the same opportunities and chances as non-disabled people."

Results of the resale survey are in.

In December you can buy up to 3 of Blurr, Scourge, Wheelie, Fortress Maximus, and Chromedome.

In February you can buy up to 3 of Jetfire, Arcee, Windblade, Megatron, and Ultra Magnus.

http://takaratomymal...ote/?mm170707TF

Edit: you pre-order them now and they ship in December and February. Not you order them then.

Yes it is.

They stated that if they do not get enough orders for a particular product that they may cancel the restock.

TTM's prices are usually MSRP, no discounts. So unless Hasbro Asia releases them too, these aren't going to be cheap to get outside of Japan. :/

Based on the last 3 months, I fully expect the reveal of the next wave of Legends to be at midnight Monday morning Japan time. Which would be 11 AM Eastern.

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.

Prices probably wouldn't be worth it. They also state it's limited to 3 per customer. Unless they work out some other agreement. Everything BBTS gets is usually from Hasbro Asia.

I assume they won't charge until the items are ready?

Also will the ship overseas or do I need to find a proxy?

Yes.

About a month to two weeks prior.

You need a proxy service like Tenso.

Robot Kingdom is getting re-releases of Blurr and Wheelie. So Hasbro Asia is re-releasing them at least.

Due in December like with TakaraTomy Mall.
