Yeah, polling these days is garbage.

@  Pennpenn : (18 May 2019 - 06:45 AM)

You know, this election is what has finally broken me of any confidence at any point of pre-polling data. I mean, it's always been sketchy, but this is just... aaaargh!

@  Pennpenn : (18 May 2019 - 06:08 AM)

I was going to make an Auspol election thread in P&R, but the outcome so far has made me feel physically ill.

@  TM2-Megatron : (16 May 2019 - 02:29 PM)

I was just talking cheesy in a dated filmmaking sense, not mind-bogglingly god-awful.

@  Sabrblade : (16 May 2019 - 11:49 AM)

Well, certainly The Last Airbender is worse at being a Superman movie.

@  TheMightyMol... : (16 May 2019 - 11:31 AM)

Is that better or worse than The Last Airbender? I mean, they're both terrible, but....

@  RichardT1977 : (16 May 2019 - 09:28 AM)

And the worst Superman movie is "Dragonball: Evolution".

@  Paladin : (16 May 2019 - 08:01 AM)

the best Superman movie is "The Iron Giant." You cannot convince me otherwise.

@  RichardT1977 : (15 May 2019 - 10:16 PM)

At least even in the first Christopher Reeve movie, when he caught Lois that first time, the background kept scrolling down for a second to indicate it wasn't a sudden stop.

@  TM2-Megatron : (15 May 2019 - 10:10 PM)

I guess you had to have been there. I did like the beginning a lot, though; the stuff on Krypton and in Smallville. The movie just got so cheesy once it got to Metropolis, though, it's kind of painful

@  Sean Whitmore : (15 May 2019 - 06:25 PM)

The performances, the cinematography, the significance of a comic book adaptation being treated like a real movie. Silly stuff like that. :)

@  TM2-Megatron : (15 May 2019 - 05:17 PM)

Yeah, I've never really understood what people loved so much about it. Other than the score, of course, which was one of Williams' finest

@  Paladin : (15 May 2019 - 04:06 PM)

and it's not even the dumbest part in that movie.

@  TM2-Megatron : (15 May 2019 - 03:16 PM)

Flying Lois around was fine; it was all the Can You Read My Mind nonsense that ruined the scene

@  Sabrblade : (15 May 2019 - 12:08 PM)

The recent Shazam! movie had Billy bumbling his way through learning his powers. But all or most of it was genuinely funny.

@  RichardT1977 : (15 May 2019 - 11:27 AM)

But yeah, in retrospect it makes me cringe the way he caught and carried the helicopter in his public debut in the first film...

@  RichardT1977 : (15 May 2019 - 11:25 AM)

(she wasn't in III long enough to be flown around)

@  RichardT1977 : (15 May 2019 - 11:25 AM)

You mean the Donner movie, the Donner/Lester movie, and The Quest for Peace (for which I don't know the director)?

@  unluckiness : (15 May 2019 - 11:09 AM)

At least he didn't try to fly lois around like in the Donner movies.

@  Cybersnark : (15 May 2019 - 10:45 AM)

My favourite is still from the first episode of the 90s Superman animated series, where Clark initially tries to catch the falling plane by its tail... which snaps off in his hands because physics doesn't work that way.

@  MEDdMI : (15 May 2019 - 09:46 AM)

I think it'd be boring if a hero could use their powers perfectly right off the bat and not have any unforseen consequences (though I also don't keep up with a lot of superhero stuff, so not familiar with those scenes)

@  Dekafox : (15 May 2019 - 09:23 AM)

Overseas, Kamen Rider Gaim did something similar after Kouta(the main character) got his transformation belt. He tried to do a whole bunch of mundane things with it cause he thought it'd make him better at them and they all go horribly wrong.

@  Paladin : (15 May 2019 - 08:59 AM)

superspeed causes enormous friction on fabric. the 1990 Flash had the same issue and it was mentioned in "The Incredibles" too...

@  fourteenwings : (15 May 2019 - 08:45 AM)

Arrow didn't have one (though Oliver got hurt a lot in flashbacks), Supergirl already had her powers, LoT gang also already had their powers mostly and in Black Lightning discovering your powers seems to be more associated with emotional trauma than anything comedic

@  fourteenwings : (15 May 2019 - 08:43 AM)

In the Arrowverse shows... I guess The Flash accidentally ran so fast he shredded his clothes? (totally not a chance to showcase Grant Gustin's "I'm not Glee kid anymore!" physique)

Anybody knew about this before?

I thin those big over-the-shoulder cannons are new.

Yep. It's going to be released in March and I have mine preordered on BBTS

 

The Cosmo Maneuver type is the same as Diabattles V2, except Battles-02 is replaced with Cosmo Battles-02, which has the huge cannons and added engines. Also I think the head sculpt is slightly different.

 

Takara is releasing Cosmo Battles both as a standalone craft (in V2 colors) and as part of that full recolor of V2. Ages Three And Up has the single-release Cosmo Battles-02 for preorder - not sure if anyone else does yet. 

 

Also here's a rundown of everything that's known for release in the Diaclone line, as far as I know (I've been a little obsessed with it lately):

 

RELEASED

DA-01 Diabattles V2

DA-01-EX Diabattles V2 (Gray/yellow lunar base prototype colors)

DA-02 Powered Suit System A Type (red suit with raid chamber and one pilot)

DA-03 Powered Suit System B Type (blue suit with raid chamber and one pilot)

DA-04 Diaclone Pilot Set (eight pilots in blue/gray colors)

 

UNRELEASED

DA-05 Powered Suit System Cosmo Marine Version (Powered Suit A/B set in gray/green military colors) - FEB 2017

DA-06 Diabattles V2 Cosmo Maneuver Type - MARCH 2017

DA-07 Cosmo Battles-02 - 2ND QUARTER 2017

 

SHOWN, NOT YET SOLICITED

Powered Suit System C-Type (construction version, yellow colors)

Powered Suit System D-Type (drill version, dark blue colors)

both above shown in photos and named in paperwork included with DA-02/03

Big Powered GV (large mecha which interacts with Powered Suits)

above shown only in concept artwork seen at Wonderfest 2016

 

Some other items have been seen at various Japanese toy shows, but I believe all of these were artist-made customs intended as concepts only. Like there was a large troop-carrier type vehicle that could stow Powered Suits.

I think the concept of being educated and being able to educate is something that more people need more of in their lives.

No, we don't all know everything but we should spread and share that what we do know.

If I'm consistently misspelling a word, I would want and expect people to correct me as should I imagine all decent people who know the value of good literacy.

Its just arrogant laziness to know you're spelling a word incorrectly and not correct yourself or ignore the advice when people do tell you how to spell a word correctly.

Looks like the head sculpt just has an added visor.

 

Wait, did the shoulder rails of Battles-01 always open up in the front like that? I had no idea!

 

The shoulder guns on Cosmo-02 have flip-out arms in back. And it looks like the boost packs on the wings are shoulder-joint compatible. This pleases me. The possibilities are absolutely juicy.

 

Those little weapon handle pods stored on the sides of Cosmo-02's cockpit are nice too, lets you wield the extra cannon attachments like handguns.

 

I'm so happy they're putting just Cosmo-02 out as an expansion set for DA-01. It'll be a nice addition.

I also noticed with this set of pics that the standard Freezon cannons can evidently attach to the nose of Cosmo Battles-02, and it looks like the two new engines have same-sized ports where they could go as well. Cool!

Yeah, that's what I was pointing out. Those bits on Cosmo-02's nose come off and can be held as pistol grips for the cannons.

And I just noticed the connector that hitches a raid chamber to Cosmo-02's cockpit can stow in Battles-03's trunk instead of the Road Viper. Because when you're out in deep space, you can't go back for your trailer hitch so easily, and a motorcycle won't do you much good anyway.
