"Fix fics" are their own entire category of fanfiction.

@  PlutoniumBoss : (17 May 2021 - 01:32 PM)

Is fanfic "fixing" an author's story? (Often it is, I think.)

@  Tm_Silverclaw : (17 May 2021 - 12:15 PM)

I don't think people repainting and such are nessicarly "Fixing" a toy, just modding it to their likes. The problem is when they go around claiming to have "Fixed' it, that I feel it becomes a problem.

@  CORVUS : (17 May 2021 - 08:41 AM)

"I was gonna buy some Toyhax labels for Earthrise Auto-Whatsit, but since I'd be disrespecting the artistic expression of the designers, I think I'll just forget the whole thing."

@  TheMightyMol... : (17 May 2021 - 06:41 AM)

Like, in general, not going into specific bands or covers. Because I could point out plenty of repainted toys I didn't like as much as the original, too.

@  TheMightyMol... : (17 May 2021 - 06:39 AM)

Is a musician covering a song "fixing" it?

@  Nevermore : (17 May 2021 - 05:15 AM)

So, then, isn't redecoing or retooling an existing toy also "fixing" someone else's art?

@  PlutoniumBoss : (16 May 2021 - 10:07 PM)

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

@  tigerhawk : (16 May 2021 - 03:43 PM)

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"?

With the different voices, will they be distinguishing Huey, Dewey and Louie? Like, one will be a tech guy, maybe another is sporty? Did they do that with Quack Pack? I kinda prefer it if they were indistinguishable. Weird.

this artwork from a few months ago seems to heavily imply individual personalities for the triplets.

Huey is the smart one, Dewey is the brave one, Louie is lazy? I'm a little disturbed that Webby is upside down. She might be playful... Or crazy.

Huey Ravenclaw, Dewey Gryffindor, Louie Hufflepuff, Webby Slytherin.

 

 

Art on the Disney XD page shows her with a Grappling Hook... so obviously she's Webby Pines :p

I love the designs. I think they've done a great job of simplifying and modernising the classic Disney duck. We'll see how it looks in motion but I'm pretty keen. Interesting that we have a casting announcement for Launchpad and Donald in all the promo art. I wonder if the volume of Donald will be different given how much the Disney landscape has changed, or whether they'll stick to the original model anyway.

Though no one can truly replace the late great Alan Young, David Tennant is a surprisingly awesome choice for a new take on Scrooge McDuck.

I love how good it looks!  I don't love the grown up sounding voices of Huey, Dewey and Louie.  Everything else is...golden.  I hope Donald plays more than an occasional cameo role on the series, because they have his character spot-on.

Theirs and Webby's.

 

But David Tennant's Scrooge voice is so perfectly spot on as a spiritual successor to Alan Young's Scrooge that that alone can forgive all other shortcomings of this show... potentially.

The characterization of kids will make this nearly impossible to watch for me. Also, really not a fan of the UPA look.

Tennant seems pretty Ok as Scrooge. Too bad same can't be said for new Launchpad's voice (though it's nowhere near bad as kids voices)...

Nah. It's just a hype tactic. Pretty much same as announcements of Fant4stic Four 2, Suicide Squad 2 while part 1 of those were flopping. (Not saying new DuckTales is flopping already, just that the goal is to make you think it's so good that you absolutely need to watch it)

I don't find anything intrinsically wrong with any of the voices they're all fine enough from what I hear except that they aren't the voices I grew up with.

-ZacWilliam, it's just the inherent weirdness of all these characters not sounding like they used to. I expect they'll be fine one I get used to them.

Yeah, having a bunch of middle aged men do unmodulated voices for characters who are supposed to be little kids isn't a great choice.  Especially when one of them is Horatio Sanz Bobby Moynihan.

I get the feeling the "kids" meant to be a bit older this time around.  More like young teen to early adult, which is fine.  I never cared much for the the original kids, though, so there's not as much nostalgia in the way.

 

I am totally hyped, though.  Tennant's voice is much better than I expected and I really like the vibe they're going for with Scrooge and Donald being (legendary?) adventurers.

I think you nailed it. Disney XD is aimed at pre-teens and teenagers. The old show skewed a little younger. So it makes sense that some things would be updated a bit, such as the kids having the same generic voice. They want today's pre-teens to be able to latch onto one character they identify with and it's easier if they all have unique characters.

 

But I can understand how on a board that mostly wants Optimus Prime to always sound like he did in 1984 change isn't going to be that popular.
