It's not a "stop and ask the audience for help every 5 seconds" show, if that's what you mean.

@  ▲ndrusi : (28 June 2017 - 03:15 PM)

(but that might just be because I haven't watched Nick Jr in years)

@  ▲ndrusi : (28 June 2017 - 03:14 PM)

It seems more like a "regular" kids' show than something Nick Junior level

@  MEDdMI : (28 June 2017 - 02:45 PM)

Also one of the villains is voiced by Tim Curry

@  MEDdMI : (28 June 2017 - 02:44 PM)

I haven't seen every ep, but it's pretty cute from what I did see. A bit more danger than your average Nick Jr show

@  Dracula : (28 June 2017 - 02:37 PM)

That sort of pre-school Nick Jr. flavor is an immediate turn-off for me, so tell me how it surpasses that

@  Dracula : (28 June 2017 - 02:36 PM)

anyone a fan of Rescue Bots? Sell me on it

@  Dracula : (28 June 2017 - 02:36 PM)

Been catching up on TF shows I missed or ignored (currently RID'15). Considering Rescue Bots, but it's like 100 episodes

@  MEDdMI : (28 June 2017 - 01:19 PM)

There's a world of difference b/t choosing it for yourself and trying to force others to do the same.

@  MEDdMI : (28 June 2017 - 01:18 PM)

Exactly. My friend's married to an omnivore and she feeds her dogs a regular diet.

@  Paladin : (28 June 2017 - 01:17 PM)

my only problem is when people try to make their PETS vegetarian. it does not work that way.

@  MEDdMI : (28 June 2017 - 01:15 PM)

*sigh* One of my best RL friends is a vegetarian. She endures so much crap for that when she's fine with other people's diets.

@  Echowarrior : (28 June 2017 - 01:00 PM)

I have nothing against vegetarians, or vegans. I just hope they have nothing against me being an omnivore.

@  ▲ndrusi : (28 June 2017 - 09:04 AM)

I just mentally mixed several thread titles together and now I want to know what Pete's personal canon would be like if he was a movieverse character

@  RichardT1977 : (28 June 2017 - 07:39 AM)

(BTW this risks drifting into restricted topic discussion)

@  RichardT1977 : (28 June 2017 - 07:38 AM)

It's pre-emptive defensive offensiveness against the offensiveness they assume vegetarians are going to have about the eating of animals. In other words, they're saying "Stop making me feel guilty!"

@  Rycochet : (28 June 2017 - 07:25 AM)

As a vegetarian it always amuses me how offended people seem to be by the existence of vegetarian food and vegetarians and vegans in general.

@  MEDdMI : (28 June 2017 - 05:11 AM)

I prefer some veggie patties over regular burgers.

@  SpectrumBelle : (28 June 2017 - 03:07 AM)

vegan ice cream is actually pretty good

@  Paladin : (27 June 2017 - 05:14 PM)

it's summer; the release schedule is packed. between the minions this week, Spiderman next week & then the Apes things have to move fast.

@  Bass X0 : (27 June 2017 - 04:58 PM)

nope, i was wrong. i don't know why one site mislead me but the cinema's own site says its still going to be shown later.

@  wonko the sane? : (27 June 2017 - 04:49 PM)

Seriously? Didn't it just drop? Why are they pulling it so fast?

@  Bass X0 : (27 June 2017 - 04:38 PM)

Thursday is the last day my local cinema is showing it so I guess I'll have to go soon to watch it too.

@  TheMightyMol... : (27 June 2017 - 04:33 PM)

Abandon all hope, ye who buy tickets here.

@  Telly : (27 June 2017 - 04:31 PM)

off to see the last knight. wish me luck!

@  Bass X0 : (27 June 2017 - 12:19 PM)

I wish more third party knock off makers would realise the same thing.

@  TheMightyMol... : (27 June 2017 - 11:01 AM)

I have to wonder if they just realized that their product sucked.

@  unluckiness : (27 June 2017 - 09:52 AM)

Can't say. It could just be a response to the lackluster performance of thefirst try convincing them it was a lost cause. Or Skullhugger.

@  Rycochet : (27 June 2017 - 09:28 AM)

I have to wonder if PWTToo actually told the non Alvarez former Hasbro employees that the plan was to straight rip off pretenders before getting them involved, it's pretty telling that none of them seemed to be around when they made their second attempt to make it work.

@  Robowang : (27 June 2017 - 08:28 AM)

Doze Nuts

@  unluckiness : (27 June 2017 - 08:12 AM)

I don't think I'd mind them making clear ripoffs of Pretenders if they didn't keep hyping their creativity up.

@  Bass X0 : (27 June 2017 - 07:43 AM)

No, because I don't buy third party knock offs.

@  lastmaximal : (27 June 2017 - 07:25 AM)

You must have been disappointed that Play With This Too didn't work out.

@  Bass X0 : (27 June 2017 - 02:24 AM)

Never had any of the Masters Of The Universe toys but I did like the highly detailed and articulated look of them. I wanted Hasbro to produce an equally highly detailed and articulated range of toys based on Transformers Pretenders outer shells from the 1980s. Although they wouldn't be Pretenders with an inner transformable robot and characters like Thunderwing would have vehicle kibble but would not be able to transform.

@  Steevy Maximus : (26 June 2017 - 08:57 PM)

Still sad that Mattel didn't even take Neca up on the offer to continue the series. Supposedly, NECA initially tried to get Mattel to license the line (with Mattel's name still on it), but had to settle on "Staticion figures "

@  Dracula : (26 June 2017 - 08:04 PM)

every non-Skeletor or He-Man was like winning a battle

@  Dracula : (26 June 2017 - 08:04 PM)

it was just such a difficult line to collect!

@  Dracula : (26 June 2017 - 08:04 PM)

I still have all my 2002 MOTU figures and even though they're usually in storage I don't think I could bear to part with them

@  Echowarrior : (26 June 2017 - 08:02 PM)

Same here. The show that went with it was surprisingly good.

@  RichardT1977 : (26 June 2017 - 08:01 PM)

I totally agree with you about 2002 MotU though.

@  Rycochet : (26 June 2017 - 06:50 PM)

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.

The artwork is decent but why doesn't Takara treat Transformers fiction seriously? Whats with the cartoony Rattrap and Optimus Primal?

It's a gag manga.

 

Takara produces plenty of serious fiction elsewhere.

Also clearly Takara needs to release little figurines of the Legends World guys which can fit in Titan Master seats.

Just calling them as I see them. If something is written to be deep and intelligent I will praise it for being deep and intelligent. When something is dumb and inappropriate, I'll criticise it for being dumb and inappropriate.

Because "deep and intelligent" is totally a standard that mini-comics printed on the back of toys' instruction sheets strive for.

Not having cutesy Rattrap, Optimus Primal and Rhinox in the story would have been a strong start.

My brain insists that that should be pronounced "Tank Takei" despite the consonants not matching up.
