Wonderful audio separation and balance.

@  Steevy Maximus : (30 November 2020 - 09:29 PM)

For Transformers The Movie 86

@  Steevy Maximus : (30 November 2020 - 09:28 PM)

I will say, the blu ray remaster, especially the audio is pretty spot on. Watching it on Apple TV has been enlightening.

@  SHIELD Agent 47 : (30 November 2020 - 09:00 PM)

Vode An!

@  SHIELD Agent 47 : (30 November 2020 - 08:59 PM)

I do not overly care for the Bad Batch, but it will be interesting to see what the animated series will bring to the table.

@  SHIELD Agent 47 : (30 November 2020 - 08:59 PM)

Alpha, Delta Squad, Omega Squad, and the Muunilinst 10 are quite the contrast to what we have at present in Disney canon.

@  SHIELD Agent 47 : (30 November 2020 - 08:57 PM)

Who else here read the pre-2008 Clone Commandos and ARC Troopers back in the day?

@  tigerhawk : (30 November 2020 - 05:04 PM)

Monoliths in Utah and Romania.

@  Sabrblade : (29 November 2020 - 05:11 PM)

Also, the face of the black redeco is painted gray.

@  Sabrblade : (29 November 2020 - 05:09 PM)

To be a little fair, the original was also lacking in more detailed color. The Telemocha Series figure fixed that.

@  TheMightyMol... : (29 November 2020 - 05:05 PM)

The unpainted face and all the greys make that look like a knockoff.

@  Sabrblade : (29 November 2020 - 05:01 PM)

One could headcanon this one as such.

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

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

@  unluckiness : (23 November 2020 - 03:17 AM)

The real Drifts were the Windblades we made along the way

@  PlutoniumBoss : (23 November 2020 - 02:25 AM)

Drift-kun 2 Electric Boobylube

@  ▲ndrusi : (22 November 2020 - 11:36 PM)

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.

@  tigerhawk : (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.

@  tigerhawk : (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?

@  -LittleAutob... : (20 November 2020 - 12:46 PM)

Not sure I get the whole 4 eps is a season thing but I did like it

 

Netflix orginal animation tends to have short seasons, unless its made in Flash or CGI like the Dreamworks series. Like "F is for Family"'s first season is only 6 episodes long. Even season 2 of 7 Deadly is only 4 episodes.

This was actually pretty good.  Imagine Universe of Castlevania (barely), the style of Vampire Hunter D, and the violence and gore of Game of Thrones. The music fit so well, I didn't even notice it.

I am looking forward to seeing this. I haven't got into a Castlevania game since the NES days, but that trailer was awesome!

 

So you skipped Super Castlevania IV and Symphony of the Night but this is what brings you back?

Overall, i liked it. If this it for now. Its gonna be a long wait for season 2, since this flowed more like the beginning of a story, cutting off just as you get going. Still, it certainly makes you want more.

That's what I gathered from Symphony of the Night.

 

It'll be interesting if they adapt SotN in a future season...


But in the current, digitized world, trivial information is accumulating every second, preserved in all its triteness. Never fading, always accessible. Rumors about petty issues, misinterpretations, slander... All this junk data preserved in an unfiltered state, growing at an alarming rate. It will only slow down social progress, reduce the rate of evolution. You seem to think that our plan is one of censorship. What we propose to do is not to control content, but to create context.

Having never played any Castlevania games before the Lords of Shadow series. Robert Carlyle is an awesome voice to have for the character he plays.

I wish there could have been a third part, but Konamis gone pachinko so...

Anyway. Having never really seen this take on Dracula, it was a surprisingly different start.

I've only watched the first episode but I really, really love their take on Dracula. I don't know how much is pure Castlevania and how much Ellis brings, but I like it. Big Dracula fan; he's a dude who shows up all over the place and he's so often rubbish in one way or another, or all.

They may actually return to games since the Pachinko market isn't the moneymaker they'd hoped it was.

From what I read, Warren Ellis had to  fully rewrite the script  EIGHT times before Koji Igarashi was happy with it. So I Imagine that it is mostly pure Castlevania, just with Ellis' flair added in.

They really did get the lore down pretty well for this.  It is very much Castlevania 3 with some SotN thrown in for backstory.  If you played both of those games, you will have a pretty good grasp of things.

 

However...

 

Spoiler

 

Season 2 was confirmed on the same day this debuted.  We just need to wait till next year.

Watched the four eps (in Japanese with subtitles. Have to watch it again in English).

I absolutely HATE the fact that they took out Grant! He was my favorite character and, gah! They could have made him into a stereotypical comedic sidekick but he should have been there! The stupid prophecy thing had Alucard saying a vampire hunter and a magician but no mention of a pirate? Argh argh argh!!!

Unless he's slated to appear in s2? Is he? Please?

The first part made me like it a lot, with Lisa, BUT I've seen this before with the Saint of Killers from Preacher comics. So it's not new.

Designs are ok but animation is not that good. Sloppy. Low budget anime?

Them falling into the hole in ep 4 was too much of a coincidence, eh.

Sypha being stoned by Cyclops was fine. That was cool. She's totally overpowered afterwards though. And the Speaker stuff is weird. Is that Castlevania lore?

You guys are mentioning Symphony of the Night, which I never played (only modern Castlevania I played that's not Lord of Shadows is the one with Some Cruz, er, I forget the title). Is Lisa canon?

Yeah, the goat bit i really cringed at. Its not funny, its not mature, its just a 'Woah shocked eh?' moment because this is a grown cartoon. Nothing meaningful would have been lost if that part of the scene had been cut.

Also, why is Grant so loved?

I don't care for Grant either way, but based on that article he has  two issues with the character. 1. He's a pirate in a long land-locked kingdom. 2. Name. Both of these are stupidly easy to fix while preserving the basics of the character.  1. If your history research says its be near impossible for pirates to be there, then don't make him a pirate; make him a thief, an assassin, or something else that keeps the rogue/scoundral nature of the character. 2. You don't like his last name? Change it, make 'DaNasty' a pseudonym or something. Hell let it be a point of contension and let Trevor mock him for such a 'try hard' 'bad guy' name. Let him has a different surname. You already alters parts of other characters to help fit this series, as long as the creator agrees, you can do whatever you want and still use the character.
