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.

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)

Can we all just appreciate how fantastic it is that the most powerful hero in the MCU is going to be a woman? It's honestly one of the best choices Marvel's made, and they've made a hell of a lot of good choices with the MCU.

 

Well, I'm assuming Vision should be pretty competitive, power level-wise.  Although we all know he's going to get jobbed once Thanos shows up.

 

Wanda's no slouch on the power level department either.  I don't feel the MCU is particularly lacking in strong female characters at any rate.  Although I do kinda wish Gamora was given more to work with in Guardians.  Didn't really do much to exemplify her top-assassin status.  Hopefully Vol. 2 gives her more to do.  Also how Nebula and Mantis factor in to the heirarchy.

Ehhn. I was hoping they'd draw on some of the older issues, or maybe the current run; to me, Carol's "defining trait" is her anger issues and violent tendencies. That was there in the KSD run, but not as much as I would've liked.

Still, I prrrrobably shouldn't be surprised. And at least she's got something relevant to her role - apparently Evangeline Lily was given The Irredeemable Ant-Man to read.

That's the biggest problem that I have with creating a "Captain Marvel" film starring Carol Danvers is that Carol - this Captain Marvel - is the sum of years of stories, many of which defining what she has finally become today. I don't know how you can specifically create a story that includes her history without it being the same convoluted mess that her history. That is, without it having the same basic plot as the Green Lantern film.

 

Edit: oops, Danvers not Ferris.

I'd be okay with short hair. It's professional, within regs for an Air Force officer, and long hair would be a liability in a close-quarters fight.

So apparently the screenwriter is concerned about some elements of the characters history... because "her origin story is similar to Green Lantern."

Alien comes to Earth, transfers power to a human, dies.*

Which is the only way you can really do Carol's classic origin unless you want to have Mar-Vell operating as Captain Marvel before Carol.

*I mean, TECHNICALLY Mar-Vell's powers weren't transferred to Carol, it was unrelated Kree DNA, but...

Its too bad there's not a concept of Kree DNA being in humans around the world introduced already that only takes the exposure to some sort of, I don't know, alien crystal to awaken said powers and could be used to introduce Carol here.  I mean that would take some sort of TV show about Agents of some sort of Shield on, I don't know, ABC or something.  It's too bad nothing like that exists in the MCU.

 

Ironbite-it's a pickle isn't it?

She's an air force pilot who gets her powers from an alien hero who later dies, leaving her to take up his name.

 

I mean, technically Mar-Vell didn't die until decades later, but you'd probably compress that for a movie.

I don't know...

Alien Policeman crashes on Earth. Chooses a test pilot to take over his job and special weapon. Test pilot goes into space and becomes space policeman/hero.

Vs

Alien invaders attack Earth. Air Force pilot trying to stop them gets caught in one of their machines exploding and comes out of it with genetically enhanced superpowers and kicks their butts.

I think it's pretty safely different.


-ZacWilliam, obviously you super downplay or leave out Mar-Vell all together as he's not pre-established in the MCU, but I don't see much similarity there.

You're looking for the differences, not the similarities, which I outlined.

 

It's enough that I imagine Marvel wants to make it more unique.  More specifically I think they want to avoid going through the beats of the Green Lantern movie from 2011.

The differences are her entire origin story, powers, and nature as a character.

The similarities are a few very tiny and easily left out superficial bits.

it's likely the simple justification for whatever changes they want to make.

 

Not that it's necessarily a good or a bad thing either way.

 

Marvel is making a movie called Captain Marvel  I can understand them wanting this to be something special.

Well, the writer of said movie disagrees with you apparently.

 

So do I, but my opinion matters less than the person actually scripting the movie.

You could pretty much exactly do the current version of her comic uniform and it wouldn't look out of place in MCU:

3047641-inline-s-3-first-look-at-the-new

 

The biggest question for me is going to be: "Where does the suit come from?" Is it something that she fashions, or is it somehow imbued upon her? If it's the latter, then it needs to look more alien, closer to something we'd see in Guardians than Avengers. Then again, a lot of Gunn's Gardians designs - specifically thinking of the Nova Corps - don't look very alien, so I don't know how you can show that.

 

 

Honestly? I'd be fine with her having been kidnapped by the ravagers ala Quill and given the powers before the movie started. We always have a precedent for alien abduction, might as well use it to save time.

 

It either that or *gasp* an agents of shield link where they find her in a Kree science lab.


It's a Newcomic (apparently)
