I'm surprised there's not been a Nemesis Primal given all the Nemesis Primes.

I thought people said Prime Wheeljack was Drift 2.

@  Maximus Ambus : (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.

@  Maximus Ambus : (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?

@  TM2-Megatron : (14 November 2020 - 11:25 PM)

That's irritating, but it sounds par for the course with new hardware release. Within a year, there'll probably be some good stuff out there that does it all.

@  Tm_Silverclaw : (14 November 2020 - 11:23 PM)

4K/HDR switches are.. iffy.. Because most of them can't do 4K and HDR at the same time.. Or can't do 120hz... and all sorts of things the new TVs have built in, and the new consoles use...

@  TM2-Megatron : (14 November 2020 - 11:18 PM)

Maybe now that the PS5's made the whole 4K thing a little more mainstream, the hardware will start becoming more common. I know that's one of the hopes the physical media community has for the 100GB discs the PS5 is going to be using. Prior to this, they were very expensive tor replicate compared to a regular blu-ray and not used very often

@  TM2-Megatron : (14 November 2020 - 11:17 PM)

Up to now, there really haven't been a whole lot of 4K disc players to choose from... Samsung stopped making them altogether when they couldn't compete with the others, so your main choices are a few models of Panasonic or Sony

@  TM2-Megatron : (14 November 2020 - 11:14 PM)

Is there no such thing as a 4K/HDR switch yet?

@  Tm_Silverclaw : (14 November 2020 - 10:10 PM)

Which is fine.. But that still doesn't explain why they arn't putting out up to date HDMI switch boxes to get.. more money.

@  TM2-Megatron : (14 November 2020 - 09:59 PM)

My only TV with a respectable number of ports is my OLED 4K/3D, which has 4 HDMI, 2 USB 2.0s, 1 USB 3.0 and some weird proprietary thing that acts as both component and composite, depending on what you need. But it retailed for $10k when it first came out (I bought it 14 months later for less than half that). THey're going to get as many corners on less expensive sets as they can, which usually means only providing 2 HDMIs.

@  TM2-Megatron : (14 November 2020 - 09:55 PM)

I mean, there are some decent ones for under a grand. But yeah, I imagine that's what they're thinking. Most people I know, unless they're film or A/V aficionados, all they've got hooked up to their TV is a digital cable receiver and perhaps a game console and dated DVD player

@  Tm_Silverclaw : (14 November 2020 - 09:45 PM)

TM2-Megatron... If that is their assumptions.. That is one of the stupidest way to think.. Especially since Multichannel receivers way to fricken expensive for that. 3000 is way to expensive.

@  TM2-Megatron : (14 November 2020 - 09:11 PM)

They probably assume the people who actually need a lot of ports are the type of consumers who'd have a decently high-end Multichannel receiver. Whereas those people who don't need many connections probably don't even have a blu-ray player or anything. Maybe just a gaming console for the kids and an old DVD player.

@  wonko the sane? : (14 November 2020 - 04:04 PM)

ResurrXion- return to the 90's era?

So Marvels been spilling the beans pretty early about their post X-men vs.Inhumans plan a bit. I'd say we are in for a revamp of the entire line since we now have quite a few titles titles. Some that are really calling back to the 90's era of the series.

 

X-men Blue

X-men Gold

Generation X (Jubilee confirmed!)

Cable

Weapon X

 

and a few new solo titles for some characters who have never really had a solo series before

 

Jean Grey

Iceman

 

Now how the older titles will become is up in the air yet. The Blue and Gold series are supposed to be returning to more of a Superheroic feel in a world that hates and fears them and less the end is nigh for Mutantkind like its been for a decade. Gen X is presumedly our new school title with Jubilee featuring somehow (teaching would be soooo weird). No word on how Cables going to be but Weapon X has been billed as to the hardcore, jive is going to fly title.

 

Jean and Iceman however are the titles catering to certain crowds. Jean will most likely become the strong female lead title and I'm absolutely cool with that. Jean has long been the uber powerful character in the x-men only to get fridged to take it back down a peg. Now hopefully this is still the young Jean in the modern era which I do enjoy having around but given the ResurrXion tag line, older Jean coming back from the white hot room seems possible.

 

Iceman however will probably be the comic catering to the LBGT community with his retconned new status as being gay. And otherwise I'm cool with the fact Bobby is getting a solo series. Jean and Him were the only 2 of the original team never to get any solo focus I believe. I'm still not cool with the retcon though. If it was just the younger Bobby discovering something in the new current era I'd be more apt to go with it, but to force it onto the original Bobby who's been through relationship after relationship and had issues with Northstar being around, it's just not sitting well with me. Still it's also not determined whether the title is focused on the older or younger Bobby, for all we know currently it's going to be both which would be a weirdly interesting dynamic. I'm beginning to think the original 5 that Older Beast ripped from their past has set a different timeline in motion from the 616 and thus the reason they can't go back is that the 616 timeline is somehow already set somehow and that their time has divergerged onto it's own path and somehow the time travel conventions they have normally used isn't working. Plus there is the Secret Wars and the multiversal splintering and reconverging... anyways gone off on a tangent..

 

So what do you guys think of the ResurrXion news?

Man, Marvel sure is doing a poor job of killing the X-Men forever and replacing them. People keep saying that's what they're doing and yet they keep walking it back like this.

The need for accommodation isn’t a “special need”. It’s a basic human right. It’s a leveling of the playing field that allows us the same opportunities and chances as non-disabled people."

I am utterly disinterested in Resurroion until they announce solo teams.
Also I'm skeptical that Jean and Iceman can hold their own series, and after how badly Bendis Bendised up the "coming out" of Iceman, I'm incredibly unenthusiastic about the prospect of more gay Iceman stories.

Yeah, now the X-Men don't have to worry about being killed off, just about being badly written like 70% of other Marvel titles.
(seriously though I think it's pretty unambiguous that Marvel has been trying to deemphasise the X-Men out of spite, especially since the ban on artists drawing them at cons)

Well, this sounds pretty great to me. I agree that solo books are unlikely to last long in most cases (but what books do?).

But ultimately... Gen X? Jubilee? Yes please. None of the rest really matters.

I really hope Bishop ends up on one of the teams, preferably Gold. Problem is that I just don't know how to any X-Men rosters manageable with just 2 teams. Even back in the old days there were only 13 or 14 characters max, and people complained it was too many. I have more favourites than that, damnit! I'm also including dead characters in my wishlist, because why not.

 

Gold: Storm

Wolverine

Colossus

Jean Grey

Archangel

Bishop

Domino

Gambit

Cable

 

 

Blue:
Cyclops

Psylocke

Beast

Rogue

Magik

Marrow

Iceman

Surge

 

Maintenance Staff: Forge and Cecilia Reyes (Cecilia would essentially be a full-time, albeit reluctant, Blue Team member)

Question: 

 

Is original Wolverine still dead/encased in Adamantium/suffering from the lamest death issue ever?

Original Wolverine is still dead.

But ANAD Wolverine has been a really good book so, fair trade.


-ZacWilliam, vanilla Logan is still pretty played out. I think he needs to rest until he feels interesting again...

I am kinda amazed they haven't brought him back yet beyond extra-dimmensional counterparts.

 

Course, it's been.....12 years since Jean Grey died. And also Marvel hated mutants until now, apparently.

Hmm, in the few places I've seen him I'd say the post-Morrison guest appearances were passable but kinda uninspired. He was "Morrison-Noh Varr light." The Bendis Avengers appearances were pretty awful and pointless, bland and personality-less (like Bendis Avengers in general really). Young Avengers NV was a fine character on the other hand, used and developed passably, he just didn't seem connected at all to any previous versions in personality or expression.

I guess I'd say he's been very inconsistent. At this point Ewing could really do anything with him and not be way afield because there's kinda been no consistant field to aim for.


-ZacWilliam, though in the interview Ewing says he's gonna try to bridge the versions some so if he can pull that off it can only help NV

Hot on the heels of yesterday’s announcement of a new ongoing series starring the Inhuman Royal Family, Marvel has announced that the Inhuman king Black Bolt will soon get his very first ongoing series. The new “Black Bolt” ongoing, which was announced via io9, will be written by novelist Saladin Ahmed (“The Crescent Moon Kingdoms”) and featuring art by Christian Ward (“The Ultimates”).

http://www.cbr.com/m...-inhumans-line/

Yeah, could be cool. Author's apparently a popular sci-fi novelist, so.

I'm honestly already more excited by the Inhuman lineup than by the X-Men.
