@  Bass X0 : (25 November 2020 - 11:15 AM)

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

Drift-kun 2 Electric Boobylube

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.

@  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)

3? We're getting 5. It's obvious that this is a week-long series of reveals. okay maybe not

 

I loved Rosenberg's Kingpin, but this isn't doing much for me, mostly because of the complete tonal disconnect between Kamala/Luna and the others. I'll be interested if he can pull it off, but for god's sake, they're a teenager and a 10-year-old, respectively. What are they doing on a clandestine spy team?

Quelle surprise: X-Men Blue and X-Men Gold are basically just a rebranded All-New X-Men and Extraordinary X-Men with different creative teams, which means we're stuck with the painfully tiresome Kirby & Lee X-Kids on Blue, and an uninspiring lineup and mediocre author (who's also reportedly the man responsible for Arrow going to shit) on Gold.
I like a lot of Bunn's work - particularly his Magneto - but he does tend to be either very good or incredibly bad, and I don't have faith that he'll be the former with the O5 involved.
 
What with Ewing and Rosenberg on the Inhumans and an X-Men line that's increasingly looking like ANAD X-Men with a new coat of paint, I suspect I'm not the only one who's going to be far more interested in the former.
 
(But there's Kitty and Rachel on the same team, so who knows; we might finally get the Promised Lesbians.)

Oh, and... I'll give you ten quid that Hopeless will be the author on Generation X.

I'm optimistic about Blue and Gold. Despite the annoying Iceman retcon I've enjoyed having the Teen Original Five around but under the tutelage of Magneto is going to be interesting. Mags hasn't been near the main teams since their short jump to Older Scotts Weapon X school so it should be interesting how they react to someone they had previously had only fought against. I'll stay on board as long as Bachelo is nowhere near the artwork.

And Gold looks like a classic mix of near Excalibur and the most current of the more popular classic characters. My only problem is where are some of the newer characters? Will all the new characters get shoved to Gen X or Xforce?

Not sure about Rachel's new codename -- "Prestige" makes me think she has heavy paper stock or something. But teaming the O5 with Magneto strikes me as a pretty viable way of keeping them interesting.

My first thought was doing 1 book of the original team and 1 book of the famous Claremont team makes a lot of logical sense. But then I heard the complaints about how rediculously non diverse/non representative these teams are with only one PoC between both teams and yeah I have to say that's not really cool for a line that is meant to be a metaphor for persecution and prejudice.


-ZacWilliam, so we'll see, I guess. But yeah once that is brought to mind it's a pretty offputting flaw...

Okay, so, each of the books so far has something hamstringing them.
Iceman is focused entirely on his sole personality trait, his gayness. (Which isn't a surprise, because it overwrote his previous sole personality trait of being a ladies' man.)
Generation X is using such beloved characters as Quentin Quire and Eyeboy. (I'd still be interested, but hug, Quire is so intolerable.)
Jean Grey is being written by Dennis Hopeless, AND it's about Teen Jean.
Weapon X has art by Greg Land.
 
If Cable has a decent team on it, I'll settle for that, Weapon X and X-Men Blue, but I'm not thrilled about this line.

Eye boy isn't bad at all. "Spider-man and the X-men" was easily the best Xbook of the last decade IMO and he was one of the class in that.

While I haven't read him myself X-men: Year One by Hopless folcused on young Jean and is a huge favorite of all the biggest Xfans I know.


-ZacWilliam, Iceman also has always been a joker and goofy "younger brother" so he has had as much personality as the rest of the original 5.

I mean, I can get behind Eyeboy on the basis of this being a bunch of weirdos and outsiders with little-to-no practical application for their powers, but I never want to read a comic with Kid Omega in it ever again.

And personally, I just can't bring myself to read Hopeless's work. Avengers Arena/Undercover was just awful, ANXM is bad, and Spider-Woman is completely uninteresting. I just think he's one of the worst writers at Marvel currently.

(I was kind of exaggerating about Iceman, but he's hardly ever been a big player, and I'm still irritated about how horribly that retcon was handled.)

Ya not thrilled about the Gen X cast. Jubes is about the only one I won't mind seeing back other than a tad bit of Quire... I at least liked when him and Wolverine went space gambling to fund the school.

 

Jean's title I'm actually interested in as I've not read much of Hopeless's work to be biased against him and I actually find young Jean the most interesting of the young O5 X-men. She's the only one who never got to meet her future self but sees all she did for everyone and this weird extended family she's suddenly inherited with Rachel, Nathan, and Nate (is X-man still running around?) while also knowing her own family have been wiped out by an alien race just for being in her same gene pool.

 

Weapon X is just Uncanny X-force 3.0 or 4.0 by now. I can't remember. I'm curious to see the dynamic between Old Man Logan and Nice Sabretooth.

 

But I'm still not happy at all about the Iceman retcon. no plans to touch that book anytime soon.

The man made Magneto talk about how normal humans "don't really feel pain" and fed them into crematoriums.

People not getting HIS characters is poetic justice.

"Disabled people don’t have special needs. We have very reasonable human needs. Our needs include freedom from abuse, violence, and mistreatment, the right to autonomy and self-direction, the right to represent ourselves, equal opportunity for education and employment, the right to accommodation, and societal inclusion and acceptance.

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."

Yeah, there's a lot of Morrison's stuff that kkkkkinda sucks. (See: everything about his treatment of gender in... er, everything, but particularly The Invisibles.)

Also, he deliberately wrote a bad comic as the "draw" of Multiversity, which nerds love to gush over because it's, like, meta, bro!*

The main thing about Morrison's work that I'm glad for is that his Doom Patrol run led into a trans woman writing it and introducing an actual transgender hero, even if both Coagula and the run as a whole were promptly ignored by DC.

 

*Goddamn, now I'm wondering if my inability to be wowed by Weird Meta Comics was a result of reading Homestuck at such a tender age.
