nobody here has moved past Wave 1. maybe if they hadn't crammed it with repaints....

@  Noideaforaname : (25 June 2017 - 06:46 AM)

Nitro's gonna be a pain in the butt to find, isn't he?

@  Pennpenn : (25 June 2017 - 03:51 AM)

Actually, on the subject of TLK toys, the voyager Nitro Zues or whatver looks pretty good. If I see it cheap I might give it to the Thunderwing head.

@  Pennpenn : (24 June 2017 - 09:58 PM)

Been playing a bit of Saints Row 4 and honestly the Blast Blast is hilariously overpowered.

@  Rycochet : (24 June 2017 - 05:28 PM)

And a better headsculpt.

@  unluckiness : (24 June 2017 - 05:23 PM)

It actually has half decent gimmicks too.

@  TheMightyMol... : (24 June 2017 - 04:03 PM)

It's still crap but at least it takes up less space.

@  Rycochet : (24 June 2017 - 10:31 AM)

I'd rather have Armada Sideswipe than Alternator Sideswipe.

@  Tm_Silverclaw : (24 June 2017 - 09:50 AM)

What he's really doing is buying all the sideswipe, so that after the apocolypse.. He'll have an army to take ove the world!

@  unluckiness : (24 June 2017 - 09:00 AM)

We could be taking this the wrong way. What if this person means to sacrifice their own money to prevent Armada Sideswipes from falling into the hands of those who don't know better?

@  Rycochet : (24 June 2017 - 06:26 AM)

People say silly things online all the time, usually followed by a smilie or a wink. Take away the context and they go from being a joke to absurd hyperbole.

@  TheMightyMol... : (24 June 2017 - 06:07 AM)

But that would miss the entire point of hyperbole.

@  Pennpenn : (24 June 2017 - 06:03 AM)

Well that's a stupid attitude from someone who would waste a lot of money. I mean, they should just... not buy movie toys?

@  Bass X0 : (24 June 2017 - 04:52 AM)

Most insane thing I read of the day: "I would rather buy 100 Armada Sideswipes and PRiD Airachnids than buy any Bayformers crap"

@  Nevermore : (23 June 2017 - 06:10 PM)

His dialogue is full of allusions to his infamous lookalike, though sometimes as subversions. Oh, and sometimes he sings Karaoke. Check his rendition of "My Way", it's on Youtube.

@  Nevermore : (23 June 2017 - 06:09 PM)

The entire idea behind the character is that he looks and talks like Hitler, but is actually a good guy. Maybe with a dickish attitude, but he's not the villain.

@  Nevermore : (23 June 2017 - 06:08 PM)

Alfons Hatler is a supporting character from a German Edgar Wallace parody movie and its sequel.

@  Nevermore : (23 June 2017 - 06:07 PM)

I'd like to remind everyone that Alfons Hatler exists, which is all sorts of awesome.

Epilogue is the worst thing to happen to mankind. And I'm including, like, all the wars and stuff.

@  Evac : (23 June 2017 - 02:11 PM)

... Did Linkara cover that one?

@  Paladin : (23 June 2017 - 01:50 PM)

the comics where Barbara quit being Batgirl after she was beaten into a miscarriage.

@  Boomhauer : (23 June 2017 - 01:20 PM)

His choice to be Batman had more punch when he was a completely normal guy met with the same dillema instead of the DNA garbage that muddies the message for no other reason than to give Old Bruce another ass-kiss before the show is over. It's a boring episode whose entire concept is repeating things already known and spark Squawkbox arguments.

@  The Predaking : (23 June 2017 - 01:11 PM)

But he still chose to be batman. Not only did he chose to be batman, he did it better.

@  Tm_Silverclaw : (23 June 2017 - 12:46 PM)

I have to agree.. Part of the problem with Epilogue is it takes away from "Terry CHOSE to be batman" and changed it a bit to "Terry was designed to be batman."

@  NotVeryKnightly : (23 June 2017 - 12:13 PM)

Do you mean the DCAU continuity comics or Future's End?

@  Paladin : (23 June 2017 - 11:36 AM)

can we all at least agree it's a better ending for Batman Beyond than the comics?

@  wonko the sane? : (23 June 2017 - 10:52 AM)

There was no evidence of it to support it in the show, and generally using someone to MAKE a batman is a jerkish thing to do.

@  Benbot : (23 June 2017 - 10:37 AM)

why does it matter?

@  Tm_Silverclaw : (23 June 2017 - 10:25 AM)

I think the problem with Epilogue was making Terry effectivly Batman's son.

@  Benbot : (23 June 2017 - 10:24 AM)

what's your problem with it?

@  The Predaking : (23 June 2017 - 10:02 AM)

Epilogue give a great end to Batman Beyond and even has a Mask of the Phantasm character

@  MrBlud : (23 June 2017 - 09:55 AM)

I don't post in the Shoutbox often, but when I do, it's to confirm "Epilogue" is garbage.

@  Paladin : (23 June 2017 - 08:43 AM)

even "Epilogue" ? (braces for that argument again)

@  The Predaking : (23 June 2017 - 08:26 AM)

Its a really great show.

Yeah, miles is only used when accuracy doesn't actually matter, or we're dealing with americans.

@  Nevermore : (23 June 2017 - 03:55 AM)

We even use "miles" in similar contexts in German even though we use kilometers for actual measurements.

@  The Doctor Who : (23 June 2017 - 02:40 AM)

Makes sense, really. Colloquialisms exist in their own weird little universe where terminology can persist after it's no longer relevant otherwise.

@  abates : (23 June 2017 - 01:17 AM)

We also measure car milage in kilometres but still call it milage.

@  Bass X0 : (22 June 2017 - 05:47 PM)

No. We still say miles. Kilometers is only really used for actual specific distances whereas miles being used in a common phrase is still miles.

@  SHIELD Agent 47 : (22 June 2017 - 04:59 PM)

People from outside the U.S.: as we are all English-proficient here, do you ever use the phrase "I saw it coming from miles away.", or do you say "kilometers" instead?

@  Hg Dragon : (22 June 2017 - 04:06 PM)

@  Hg Dragon : (22 June 2017 - 04:05 PM)

Indeed. Especially on opening week. We're talking avg, 5-8%. It's more at your discount/sub-run houses.

@  Steevy Maximus : (22 June 2017 - 10:25 AM)

AMC knows it, freakin $7 for a regular drink

@  Paladin : (22 June 2017 - 08:22 AM)

and if you want to support your theaters, buy more concessions. because they get SHIT from the ticket sales...

@  Hg Dragon : (22 June 2017 - 08:15 AM)

So, we charged an extra $1 per. F'em

@  Hg Dragon : (22 June 2017 - 08:13 AM)

First, they threatened to stop sending us digital because we weren't upcharging for it (back when we were still "mixed" format). Then they threatened to stop sendingus 3D because we didn't upcharge for those either initially.

So how long does Barricade get in this new film before he bites it?  10 minutes?  5?

 

I really like this design and hope he has a significant enough role.

While I like the packaging, the "premiere" labeling makes me a bit worried, since the only thing that feels "premiere" is the number of accessories (2x or 4x more than most deluxes). Love the nightstick, and yes, I'd like to finally get a more heroic movie Prowl Remolded from this. All previous Barricades have been too monstrous to really sell as Prowl, but this one could work well.

"Premiere" appears to just be how they're differentiating this from the Generations line, since no lines appear to be taking a break for this one.

I don't think "premiere" in this sense is meaning "premium" or a sort of "platinum" edition, but more like "debut" or "first edition".

Wait, really?

All I'd heard was "VW is named Hooligan (Crowbar's pre-prod name) and looks like they're a Dread".

Also, it's kind of ridiculous that Bumblebee is a straight redeco of the AOE figure, especially considering he's going back to his "original trilogy" robot mode design for TLK.

Interesting, but are all the deluxes going to be boxed? Like, is "premiere" only the first wave, or something pre-wave 1 (they did this with the protoforms in 2007 and BB and Soundwave for ROTF, but they didn't get special packaging)? Curious

I assumed it just meant the reports came from someone who was familiar with the DotM toys, so I'm not exactly holding on for that one either.

I'd put money on "Premier Edition" simply meaning "TLK Generations". I figure it's all an attempt to avoid the situation they had with AOE where you had stuff like Power Battlers and Deluxes being nigh-identical on the shelf.

That's a really good point.  Plus, being in a box makes it look comparable to Star Wars and Marvel's Black Series figures at roughly the same price.

Yeah Berserker is looks great. Better than Barricade to be honest. I'm digging how dynamic the figures seem, it's clear they have a smaller budget than the ROTF days so the transformations are still simple but they still seem much more elegant than the DOTM and AOE deluxes.

Wait, why are people saying that's Crowbar at all? It's Crankcase. Am I to understand Crankcase is in TLK but called Crowbar? I mean, that makes sense, because it's not like he was called anything onscreen in DOTM, and also that guy is dead, so there can easily be a new guy who looks just like Crankcase but is named Crowbar, but...why?

 

Also: Barricade looks great, I don't understand the black panel in the middle of the hood, and the boxes are totally positioning the Deluxes as the equivalent of Marvel Legends or 6" Star Wars Black Series.

 

PS whoever that Dread is looks great, and although I can't see the guy's page anymore and therefore can't see Bee, is it impossible that Bee shows up in his old body before reformatting in this one, and the AOE redeco is just the First Bee toy?

Yeah, now the kibble folds up, a new faceplate from Shapeways and Barricade will basically be a lovely new mold Generations toy. It doesn't look like a movie toy at all. I like it a lot.

 

The other two reuses from the older lines keep their old aesthetic, and are therefore awful ugly monstrosities.

Oh, huh, yeah, I couldn't compare properly on my phone and for some reason I had it in my head the Crowbar was the only one with double-eyes. But yeah, it absolutely is Crankcase.

and although I can't see the guy's page anymore and therefore can't see Bee, is it impossible that Bee shows up in his old body before reformatting in this one, and the AOE redeco is just the First Bee toy?


They've painted the front end of the new TLK vehicle mode over the AOE vehicle's sculpt, Takara style, so it seems like it's supposed to represent the new design.

That does seem like an odd decision, but I suppose if molds from a few years ago aren't financially viable anymore, maybe it's all they could do...

 

...but in what world does Hasbro not prioritize a new mold for Bumblebee of all characters? There's a new-mold Crankcase right there!
