A toy is not on the same level as a piece of drawn art, true, but it is 100% an entertainment product.

@  Nevermore : (16 May 2021 - 05:05 PM)

A toy is an object of utility, Comparing that to a piece of drawn art is grossly ignoring the difference between the two. Also, you didn't answer my questions. Try again.

@  PlutoniumBoss : (16 May 2021 - 04:25 PM)

Part of the difference is that those covers are primarily one person's art. Sure, you probably have an inker and a colorist, but the lines and composition are one person. A toy however is a team design at pretty much all levels.

@  Cyoti : (16 May 2021 - 03:52 PM)

toymaking is a collaborative process, you have to make compromises and factories are going to get things wrong

Earthrise had a few holes, Runamuck's legs YIKES!

@  NotVeryKnightly : (16 May 2021 - 03:37 PM)

I doubt that say, the designer for Kingdom Cheetor was happy about every bit of unpainted plastic on it.

@  Bass X0 : (16 May 2021 - 03:28 PM)

J Scott Campbell recently had his Spiderman cover "fixed" by someone online. A few weeks ago, someone on twitter "fixed" someone's Sonic the Hedgehog fan art where Sonic, Tails and Knuckles were drawn as humans. Both times and other times, the "fixer" gets called out and criticised as you shouldn't go around "fixing" someone else's art because its rude and disrespectful to the original artist. And I was thinking isn't "fixed your s*** for ya" exactly what toy customisers do?

@  Nevermore : (16 May 2021 - 02:28 PM)

Have you ever changed your car in any way whatsoever compared to the factory configuration, or are you leaving the designer's art unchanged in that case as well?

@  CORVUS : (16 May 2021 - 02:28 PM)

It's best not to ponder it too hard.

@  Nevermore : (16 May 2021 - 04:16 AM)

Bass X0, I really wonder sometimes how you come up with these random tangents apropos of nothing.

@  PlutoniumBoss : (16 May 2021 - 04:11 AM)

It's collaborative art.

@  NotVeryKnightly : (16 May 2021 - 04:07 AM)

Toys are subject to budget constraints, so its not like customizing would ruin the designer's vision or whatever.

@  Bass X0 : (16 May 2021 - 03:38 AM)

Isn't customising a toy just "fixing other people's art"?

That might actually be a fake noise they make electric cars make so pedestrians can hear them. Some cars even let you pick out what noise they make.

Nearly thirty Studio Series figs including the '86 line. "I won't touch that." I said a few years ago when deluxe wave 5 came to my store for a tenner each. My latest one' is 72 Starscream.

The 1988 G1 line up could all have been done as Titan Master things, I figure the Pretenders could be done as Titan Master Drones and Prime Master shells.

@  Cyoti : (08 May 2021 - 11:14 AM)

Perfect is the enemy of the good. And it's still better than making him a remold of RTS Jazz as planned originally. Fact of the matter is: Nightbeat is just not a priority with Hasbro.

@  Demovere Xeno : (08 May 2021 - 08:58 AM)

Generations Nightbeat never really scratched that itch sadly; he looked okay, but his transformation was fiddly, his robot mode had far too many bits and pieces flopping around unsecured, and his chest dragged along the surface in var mode. =/

@  Demovere Xeno : (08 May 2021 - 08:57 AM)

I second wishing that we got a Deluxe Nightbeat from TR, mostly because as a kid he was second-in-command to my old Powermaster Optimus for the longest time. =P

@  tigerhawk : (08 May 2021 - 05:41 AM)

Wipe Out and Wilder it coulda been: Wipe Out is down in the dumps because the Scramble City Trypticon was destroyed and left him a drifting to the point he arrives in Legends World, he finds Wilder and both go on a crime spree subverted by their realisation neither gets any joy from it until they stop a violent crook together and become anti heroes.

Far as I'm aware, I don't think anything has actually been officially said. So there's still a chance.

Hey, that's right. With the dimensional device thingy, the new Darkwing might be another reboot but still canon to DuckTales 2017. Multiverse and all that.

Could work. I always found it strange how cartoony Darkwing's show is, with anvil gags and fourth wall breaking. DuckTales was more grounded. If the Darkwing 202X is going to have more loony toony cartoon physics, then a new universe would make sense.

(I remember now being a bit horrified at DuckTales 2017 Darkwing being injured repeatedly in his debut. He was still snapping back tenaciously but it didn't fit with the more 'real' world of DuckTales 2017.)

Until Fenton came along, that is. He broke the fourth wall all the time.

Which is actually based off an actual Scrooge comic, in fact the very first... well not his introduction, but the first that really turned him into a character. "Only a poor old man"

Pet zoo is more of Louie's thing.

Am disappointed that the Hand of Hammurabi isn't an Infinity Gauntlet thing.

Launchpad is sleeping with a Darkwing blanket. And I thought it was going to be a freaky double Launchpad thing for a while.

They already had godly superpowers before.

Credits are the best/worst, haha

If anyone needs help understanding Donald's reading off the credits at the end, turn on the closed captions. They are properly scripted with the audio in this video, rather than auto-generated.

Why aren't comments allowed in the YouTube channel? I hope the show is doing well.

The writer puns are so silly. I'm annoyed that Neil GameHen got in but there's no Terry Pratchett name drop?

Very cool reveals (do solutions count as reveals? Or twists?). Webby's was obvious so I thought she would try something different. Scrooge's was a face palm, like, I should have thought of that but it also gave me a pleasant feel, hehe

I imagined Gyro's battle suits to be the giant Armstrong mechs.
