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.

@  Nevermore : (23 June 2017 - 06:09 PM)

The entire idea behind the character is that he looks and talks like Hitler, but is actually a good guy. Maybe with a dickish attitude, but he's not the villain.

@  Nevermore : (23 June 2017 - 06:08 PM)

Alfons Hatler is a supporting character from a German Edgar Wallace parody movie and its sequel.

@  Nevermore : (23 June 2017 - 06:07 PM)

I'd like to remind everyone that Alfons Hatler exists, which is all sorts of awesome.

@  wonko the sane? : (23 June 2017 - 05:41 PM)

@  Sean Whitmore : (23 June 2017 - 03:31 PM)

Epilogue is the worst thing to happen to mankind. And I'm including, like, all the wars and stuff.

@  Evac : (23 June 2017 - 02:11 PM)

... Did Linkara cover that one?

@  Paladin : (23 June 2017 - 01:50 PM)

the comics where Barbara quit being Batgirl after she was beaten into a miscarriage.

@  Boomhauer : (23 June 2017 - 01:20 PM)

His choice to be Batman had more punch when he was a completely normal guy met with the same dillema instead of the DNA garbage that muddies the message for no other reason than to give Old Bruce another ass-kiss before the show is over. It's a boring episode whose entire concept is repeating things already known and spark Squawkbox arguments.

@  The Predaking : (23 June 2017 - 01:11 PM)

But he still chose to be batman. Not only did he chose to be batman, he did it better.

@  Tm_Silverclaw : (23 June 2017 - 12:46 PM)

I have to agree.. Part of the problem with Epilogue is it takes away from "Terry CHOSE to be batman" and changed it a bit to "Terry was designed to be batman."

@  NotVeryKnightly : (23 June 2017 - 12:13 PM)

Do you mean the DCAU continuity comics or Future's End?

@  Paladin : (23 June 2017 - 11:36 AM)

can we all at least agree it's a better ending for Batman Beyond than the comics?

@  wonko the sane? : (23 June 2017 - 10:52 AM)

There was no evidence of it to support it in the show, and generally using someone to MAKE a batman is a jerkish thing to do.

@  Benbot : (23 June 2017 - 10:37 AM)

why does it matter?

@  Tm_Silverclaw : (23 June 2017 - 10:25 AM)

I think the problem with Epilogue was making Terry effectivly Batman's son.

@  Benbot : (23 June 2017 - 10:24 AM)

what's your problem with it?

@  The Predaking : (23 June 2017 - 10:02 AM)

Epilogue give a great end to Batman Beyond and even has a Mask of the Phantasm character

@  MrBlud : (23 June 2017 - 09:55 AM)

I don't post in the Shoutbox often, but when I do, it's to confirm "Epilogue" is garbage.

@  Paladin : (23 June 2017 - 08:43 AM)

even "Epilogue" ? (braces for that argument again)

@  The Predaking : (23 June 2017 - 08:26 AM)

Yeah, miles is only used when accuracy doesn't actually matter, or we're dealing with americans.

@  Nevermore : (23 June 2017 - 03:55 AM)

We even use "miles" in similar contexts in German even though we use kilometers for actual measurements.

@  The Doctor Who : (23 June 2017 - 02:40 AM)

Makes sense, really. Colloquialisms exist in their own weird little universe where terminology can persist after it's no longer relevant otherwise.

@  abates : (23 June 2017 - 01:17 AM)

We also measure car milage in kilometres but still call it milage.

@  Bass X0 : (22 June 2017 - 05:47 PM)

No. We still say miles. Kilometers is only really used for actual specific distances whereas miles being used in a common phrase is still miles.

@  SHIELD Agent 47 : (22 June 2017 - 04:59 PM)

People from outside the U.S.: as we are all English-proficient here, do you ever use the phrase "I saw it coming from miles away.", or do you say "kilometers" instead?

@  Hg Dragon : (22 June 2017 - 04:06 PM)

@  Paladin : (22 June 2017 - 08:22 AM)

and if you want to support your theaters, buy more concessions. because they get SHIT from the ticket sales...

@  Hg Dragon : (22 June 2017 - 08:15 AM)

So, we charged an extra $1 per. F'em

@  Hg Dragon : (22 June 2017 - 08:13 AM)

First, they threatened to stop sending us digital because we weren't upcharging for it (back when we were still "mixed" format). Then they threatened to stop sendingus 3D because we didn't upcharge for those either initially.

The only right way to celebrate the movie's 10th anniversary is by giving us MP versions of Blackout, Bonecrusher, and '74 Bee.

Yup, looking like the canceled version that never came out the first time (the one in Japan that HLJ still uses as part of their banners at some places).

That Megatron has been begging for a proper deco since 2009. It was the first toy I ever bought *because* I was a collector.

I'm not as deep in movie toys as I used to be, but still...very tempting. The hybrid Evasion deco and the minifigs with the Dinobots are delicious.

So does the Voyager Starscream feature some of the original intended features that were removed for the figure when it went into production?

A lot of these are good, if obvious, redecos, and it's a decent "greatest hits" lineup of the films. Though I wonder if there's an audience for this stuff anymore. I feel like I've mostly moved on, though some of these are tempting.

 

So we haaaave....

 

-Evasion Mode Optimus in a new deco, in his red and blue colors, but weathered.

-DOTM Deluxe 'bee, only with some kind of Gatling Gun weapon instead of his Mechtech (anyone recognize it?)

-The long-awaited ROTF Voyager Megs movie-accurate redeco. (This is attempt #3 at a release, right? Watch this get cancelled, too).

-A DOTM Voyager Shockwave re-release? Maybe a metallic deco?

-HFTD Deluxe Ironhide, probably in some kind of premium deco.

-What looks like DOTM Deluxe Ratchet repainted into his Movie 1/2 colors, with a tiny pistol instead of his Mechtech (again, anyone recognize it?)

-A DOTM Deluxe Soundwave re-release, minus accessories? (Yay for rarity, boo for lack of weapon)

-Some use of the ROTF Starscream mold, which I'm guessing will be in Movie 1 colors

-A voyager Grimlock with a mini Optimus rider?

-A Voyager Strafe, also with a mini Bumblebee rider

-ROTF Buster Prime, only with his DOTM Abs retool, a single sword from the Asia Release, and the faceplate on.

The listing at BBTS says Soundwave is the Human Alliance one. I'm not familiar enough with the toy to tell.

 

Maybe I'm the only person, but I really like the the inaccurate deco on ROTF Voyager Megs. It's way more interesting than his actual movie colors. That one was the only movie megs in my collection for a long time.

I think they're just using the original RotF prototype photos as a placeholder.

It is, sans Laserbeak and McDreamy.

It kind of dawned on me only today that its been about 9 years since the first movie came out. I'm not going to really bother with any of these reissues unless there is something eye cataching, say ROTF leader Megatron with proper arms the relfect how he appeared in the film, the only movie Megatron I got is the 07 figure at least of the larger ones, I got the old legends (legion class) figures but I never went for the others, I had hoped for some third party or something to make improvements to that ROTF Megatron leader but nothing really came and I didn't bother to get him, I'm mainly put off by the arms, one being puny and the other a massive lump, while OP, I got the ROTF leader mold three times:

1. First release, the one that saw masses of him on the shelves

2. Jet Wing (the DOTM retool with the jet pack)

3. Takara Striker Optimus.

 

So for the moment in regards to these rereleases, I'm on the bench and not really likely to buy them.

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.

^ I'd rather Takara try to find some way to retool all that Jetfire armor to make it instead attach to the more movie-accurate 2010 Voyager OP mold.

Not me. I get why someone would want that, but I don't think it would look as good. I think the 07 mold's thicker limbs add something to the combined mode that we wouldn't get with the more accurate 2010 mold.

I like the 2007 Voyager. It's got an intuitive transformation that accomplishes a a lot and BBOP inherits a lot of the Leader's fiddliness, the only major consolation being he doesn't keep introducing himself.

I *love* the green! It was a perfect 'zombie'/patina color, the shade a robot that's been dead at the bottom of the ocean should be.

 

Still wish we had gotten that version that had crabs and barnacles and things painted on...
