Yikes. Sounds more like GTA.

@  Dracula : (23 March 2017 - 08:42 AM)

Someone drove a car through a crowd of people and then into the front gates of parliament, I think, and stabbed a police officer before being killed by other officers

@  Robowang : (23 March 2017 - 08:10 AM)

I coincidentally watched London Has Fallen yesterday afternoon, heard an offhand remark about a terrorist attack in London on the radio yesterday afternoon, and somehow put the two together in my sleepy haze. I need to read what actually happened.

@  SHIELD Agent 47 : (22 March 2017 - 11:21 PM)

That's relieving to hear.

@  Jalaguy : (22 March 2017 - 05:33 PM)

All good here, I don't work that far into the city.

@  Bass X0 : (22 March 2017 - 05:00 PM)

I'm way up north, so yeah.

I'm pretty sure Kong doesn't fight Fox Studios...

@  NotVeryKnightly : (22 March 2017 - 12:25 PM)

I didn't know he was meeting the Fantastic Four's enemies.

@  Bass X0 : (22 March 2017 - 12:18 PM)

I might watch Kong: Skrull Island this weekend.

@  ▲ndrusi : (22 March 2017 - 10:48 AM)

(At least I'm assuming it was "instead." I guess I don't know for sure that Eddie Murphy's character wouldn't have been Kirk's love interest.)

@  ▲ndrusi : (22 March 2017 - 10:47 AM)

I dunno about that. Star Trek IV was pretty great but I'm haunted by the knowledge that at one point instead of a love interest it was going to have Eddie Murphy.

@  Paladin : (22 March 2017 - 07:28 AM)

you know a remake/movie's in trouble when adding Eddie Murphy to it might make things BETTER...

@  unluckiness : (22 March 2017 - 06:45 AM)

Is Eddie Murphy still Mushu?

@  MEDdMI : (21 March 2017 - 08:30 PM)

what....? b-but that song's so awesome! *lookd up info* oh, it's just "for now", but could change since it's not planned for release until 2018.

@  Waspinator : (21 March 2017 - 08:22 PM)

Oh wow, you're not kidding: they're actually planning to remake Mulan without the songs. Idiots.

@  NightViper : (21 March 2017 - 01:54 PM)

If they had a sword they would not get bored. They would not get bored, that horrible Horde. They would find a lord - a lord and his ward - and use their sword to slice the lord. Yes slice the lord just like a gourd! Then the ward they turn themselves toward that horrible Horde. That horrible terrible deplorable Mongol Horde. And they would not be bored if they had a sword.

@  Paladin : (21 March 2017 - 01:07 PM)

how many boars would the Mongols hoard if the Mongol Horde got bored?

trying to decide if autocracy was an attempt at an original story or just an excuse to quote the '86 movie for the gajillionth time. time to move on fom it (even if you did have a hand in writing it)!

@  Telly : (20 March 2017 - 04:38 PM)

certainly not! reminds me too much of those tests they made me take when i was a kid. the trauma. the trauma...

@  Telly : (20 March 2017 - 03:46 PM)

plus the -acies have my all time favorite artist on it (thats to be read with the most sarcastic tone possible btw)

@  TheMightyMol... : (20 March 2017 - 03:40 PM)

You're not missing anything. Either in the "quality of the stories themselves" way OR in the "adds to the greater universe" way.

@  Dracula : (20 March 2017 - 03:30 PM)

I still haven't read the -acies despite owning most of them in print...

@  Dracula : (20 March 2017 - 03:29 PM)

I like Origins, I feel like the later stories add to it and make it better than what it was when written.

@  Telly : (20 March 2017 - 02:57 PM)

@jalaguy-well if i get bored with the stories i can always skip them lol

@  TheMightyMol... : (20 March 2017 - 02:53 PM)

Origins felt like it was Megatron telling his own story and leaving out the parts he didn't like.

@  Jalaguy : (20 March 2017 - 02:49 PM)

Origins-and-acies-first reading orders are A Bad Idea.

@  Telly : (20 March 2017 - 02:32 PM)

origin felt like its writer was just waiting for someone to come along and fill in the gaps for him

@  Telly : (20 March 2017 - 02:32 PM)

im currently making my way through autocracy. im trying to read them all in the order on the wiki page; http://tfwiki.net/wi...ontinuity#Media

@  Rycochet : (20 March 2017 - 02:04 PM)

The 'acys have no excuse for their terribleness.

@  Rycochet : (20 March 2017 - 02:04 PM)

Megatron Origin gave us Megatron's lovely locks, so that's something. It wasn't horrible, but being condensed down to four issues really hurt it

@  Noideaforaname : (19 March 2017 - 10:44 PM)

Megatron Origin is super disappointing if you go in right after reading Chaos Theory/MtMtE...

@  Telly : (19 March 2017 - 09:34 PM)

just read the megatron origin series. that really shouldve been 6 issues. it was very choppy and some things couldve used some further explaining

I seriously cannot see anything beyond shades of silver and gray and a tiny bit of gold in that CG model's armor. The red eye is the only other bit of color I can see on it.

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.

So glad that Megs mold finally got this lovely color scheme on it, with a seemingly good paint budget at that. I've seen complaints of "why didn't they do the Leader", but that only makes sense if you consider rarity rather than whether or not it's HAD this deco. This is a nice design and it looks great done up in this deco.

Shockwave... I always read it as a violet, that is, closer to blue than to red, so this looks about right to my eyes.

Man, that transformation was brilliant. All it needs is the folding hands reinstated and it beats the Leader in every way.

People in Japan reporting QC problems with Starscream and Soundwave as well. Haven't opened mine yet. 

 

My Bumblebee didn't seem too bad, just one of his hip panels wouldn't fold back all the way until I shaved off some plastic in the joint.  Getting it back into car mode also needed some panel massaging, but I'm not sure if it was any worse than previous releases of the mold.

Also, Ironhide's instructions are apparently hard to understand (not sure if they're significantly different from previous releases), and people have been getting stress marks trying to get the head out when transforming to robot mode.  Also looks like some people might be having QC issues with him.

Eh, Leader's proportions are way better.  Voyager has a slightly more inventive transformation scheme, but the end result is an extra wide torso, with wideset and small legs.

 

Leader also has way cooler weapons.

I remember having that problem with the original release - it happens if you don't slide the posts the arms are on all the way out. IIRC it's the kind of thing where you need a little extra pressure to pop them into the final position, so it's easy to unwittingly not pull them out fully.

Yeah, one of the reviewers on Amazon said something similar.  Don't think I ever bothered with the deluxe Ironhide before, so hopefully I won't have any major problems.

One glaring omission in this and their AOE rerelease items is Leadfoot. He didn't get a really widespread release in DOTM, and it'd be nice for people to get another shot at him. Of course I have no idea if there may be licensing and technical whatevers in the way.

Can't seem to get the head/windshield assembly to lock in during robot mode.  Googled and saw that several others (including Jeremy here on the Allspark) had this problem, so I guess it's not supposed to lock in?

I'm still holding out hope, we've not seen Takara's TLK line yet, and who says that Movie Best is over. It's a tiny sliver of hope that's constantly shrinking, but it's still hope.

 

Of course, that still won't get us a full set of accurate Wreckers in the same scale...
