There needs to be some streaming service that caters to connoisseurs of schlock. Otherwise, a huge part of our cultural history will be wiped away. While many of these films are available on blu-ray, with more coming out each month, it's good they're also available for the streaming crowd.

@  TM2-Megatron : (17 June 2019 - 10:18 PM)

Corman did make an impressive number of barbarian films back in the day. If impressive is the word

@  Steevy Maximus : (17 June 2019 - 08:11 PM)

I mean, where else are you going to see the entire Roger Corman barbarian fantasy library (legally) for free?

@  Steevy Maximus : (17 June 2019 - 08:09 PM)

Oh Tubi TV, you are a haven for terrible films. Netflix, Hulu and Crackle all push for mainstream appeal and prestige, you got the guts to have ready access to dregs even the SyFy channel wouldn't air

@  ▲ndrusi : (17 June 2019 - 01:33 PM)

Also you have Bayonetta and a bunch of Fire Emblem people.

@  ▲ndrusi : (17 June 2019 - 01:33 PM)

...I mean, Tales character. Probably up to/for it.

@  TheMightyMol... : (17 June 2019 - 01:26 PM)

But what if I need to kill a god? Or several of them?

@  ▲ndrusi : (17 June 2019 - 11:25 AM)

Kratos is allowed, but only the one from Tales of Symphonia

@  TheMightyMol... : (17 June 2019 - 10:56 AM)

So no Kratos?

@  ▲ndrusi : (17 June 2019 - 10:42 AM)

In any case I'd rather have another Fire Emblem character than another character from a PlayStation exclusive game who teeeeeechnically was in a spinoff.

@  ▲ndrusi : (17 June 2019 - 10:39 AM)

Kong had his name on the games first, but Mario was the protagonist first. It's debatable.

@  Rycochet : (17 June 2019 - 10:33 AM)

Wouldn't Mario be the one spun off from the Donkey Kong franchise, given that Kong was first?

@  Pennpenn : (17 June 2019 - 05:19 AM)

I would count Wario and Yoshi, but not DK (might be because I wasn't even aware DK was spun off from the Mario franchise until I was in my mid-20s, but whatever)

@  unluckiness : (17 June 2019 - 04:13 AM)

But to be fair, Corrin is the only one I particularly dislike and it's really more boredom due to their blandness as characters

@  unluckiness : (17 June 2019 - 04:09 AM)

It would depend on whether or not you count DK, Wario and Yoshi as part of the Mario franchise or separate. Scratch that, there are more Mario characters even with just the mushroom symbol people but it's a close call.

@  Pennpenn : (17 June 2019 - 02:55 AM)

You'd figure Fire Emblem would have enough characters in Smash. Kinda feels like there's more FE characters than Mario characters.

@  unluckiness : (16 June 2019 - 01:20 AM)

And for hug's sake, I hope that the new Fire Emblem's PC isn't one of the DLC

@  Sean Whitmore : (15 June 2019 - 04:11 PM)

Smash Bros could never touch a new franchise again, and I'd still have laundry lists of side characters and villains I'd love to see included.

@  MEDdMI : (14 June 2019 - 10:38 PM)

I would unironically love Tingle in Smash.

@  Paladin : (14 June 2019 - 02:06 PM)

they HAVE to put Travis Touchdown in at some point now, right???

@  TheMightyMol... : (14 June 2019 - 01:24 PM)

Right after Shaq.

@  Locoman : (14 June 2019 - 12:36 PM)

When will we get Bluster Kong in Smash?

@  unluckiness : (14 June 2019 - 08:20 AM)

The last three DLC characters are Tingle, Charles Barkley and L Tetris block with Reverse L Tetris block as an Echo fighter.

I still want to find out how freezing people suspends them in midair

@  Tm_Silverclaw : (14 June 2019 - 02:45 AM)

We really need Subzero or Scorpion in Smash. Violence aside, they are pretty big gaming icons as well.

@  Steevy Maximus : (13 June 2019 - 08:18 PM)

Given Nintendo's relationship with Tecmo, I'm still waiting for Ryu Hyabusa

@  TheMightyMol... : (13 June 2019 - 07:19 PM)

I'm still waiting for Doomguy.

@  Steevy Maximus : (13 June 2019 - 06:47 PM)

I just started watching High School DxD (don't judge me...) and I caught on the Nintendo Treehouse some request Rias for Smash lol

@  ▲ndrusi : (13 June 2019 - 11:25 AM)

I just wish they'd release the Astro City paperback trades.

@  Nevermore : (10 June 2019 - 05:31 AM)

As an open-minded heterosexual, I wouldn't mind seeing more of that.

@  Nevermore : (10 June 2019 - 05:29 AM)

Currently in the process of re-reading Kurt Busiek's Astro City. Big props for the issue featuring the "Dancing Master" and its portrayal of non-stereotypical gay characters.

@  TM2-Megatron : (10 June 2019 - 05:25 AM)

Don't phone charges often contain special rapid charge circuitry, though? The voltage might be higher too, given the selfie stick probably has a very basic battery.

@  SHIELD Agent 47 : (09 June 2019 - 11:28 PM)

Glad to be of assistance!

@  Telly : (09 June 2019 - 10:32 PM)

*checks selfie stick and phone charger* huh. perfect fit. thanks!

@  SHIELD Agent 47 : (09 June 2019 - 09:58 PM)

I would use the USB-to-AC adapter that came with my iPhone, though I gather you must have a different brand of cell phone.

@  TM2-Megatron : (09 June 2019 - 05:42 PM)

In that case a generic adapter is probably your best bet, then. Keep in mind a lot of hotels now have plain USB outlets in rooms too, though; but I guess that's not guaranteed

@  Telly : (09 June 2019 - 05:31 PM)

yeah, i just need something small to plug into the wall. im not sure im taking my laptop on my trip later this year and i want a way to charge my stuff

@  TM2-Megatron : (09 June 2019 - 05:04 PM)

They also have wall outlets with built-in USB in addition to the two regular plugs; I installed those around my place so I have USB ports everywhere

@  TM2-Megatron : (09 June 2019 - 05:02 PM)

You might be able to get a generic adapter to use with it at Radio Shack if you know the appropriate voltages or whatever

@  TM2-Megatron : (09 June 2019 - 05:01 PM)

It came with a USB cable with no AC adapter? A lot of lower priced electronics do that, presumably assuming that USB is pretty ubiquitous

@  TM2-Megatron : (09 June 2019 - 05:00 PM)

Yeah, must be, I guess.

@  Telly : (09 June 2019 - 04:59 PM)

maybe having bluetooth has something to do with it?

@  Telly : (09 June 2019 - 04:58 PM)

the one i got has an on/off button, and came with a usb to attach to my laptop to charge it. its this one https://www.walmart....ility/432985497

Over the years I've made various bits of Transformer fan art, and since I'm easily amused by my own stuff I thought I'd repost some of it here, piece by piece.

The thing I love about this is the halved brain. It's just absurd and wonderful.
Shouldn't gravity be doing something?
 
Of course there's a figure of Rodimus as some kind of animal girl. Why would I be surprised by this?

Kreons were going to do "historic" versions of classic characters, something terribly cliché that I always wanted to see in a Transformers show. Because, seriously, who doesn't want to see WWI-era Starscream and Shockwave?

Man, I meant to post here more often, but somehow nearly a month went by...

 

This one's a bit different. I've been doing a series of Genestealer Hybrids based on various fictional aliens, and one of them's a Transformer.

Goodness am I bad at keeping this updated...

 

TARANTULAS REIMAGINED!

So I've always been a fan of what-ifs, reinterpretations, "Bizarro"/opposite versions, and the like, and after seeing Kreon "Warriors" and Thomas Perkins' stuff I got to doodling alter-versions of... Tarantulas for some reason. I dunno, guess I've always really like his design, and you don't really see much BW fan art which is a shame.

 

First up, as he might have looked in the 80s cartoon

80s_tarantulas_by_monster_man_08-d8izm1i

He looks vaguely like Unicron, you say. Pffft, yeah right...

 

And Ninja Tarantulas

ninja_tarantulas_by_monster_man_08-d8izm

The Beast Wars cartoon portrayed Tarantulas as a treacherous, cannibalistic, mad scientist, but the toys sold him as a dull-witted ninja. So I went a little nuts with the idea. I was thinking he doesn't transform so much as he poofs into smoke and re-poofs as a spider (this IS supposed to be a weird parallel dimension Tarantulas, after all), although his limbs ended up looking like they could do a General Grievous-esque split to create 8 legs, maybe even each holding a kunai to complete the look.

 

More to come!

I suppose he comes from a universe where people are biased towards bugs instead of mammals. Like, this world's Maximals would all be weird generic beasts that evoke rhinos and rats and cheetahs, while the Predacon arthropods are all fairly accurate.

Cosmic Horror Tarantulas!

cosmic_tarantulas_by_monster_man_08-d8k5

Could it be he has a far darker heritage than expected?
Could it be he tapped into the power of the Vok and is slowly becoming just a head?

Could it be he's a boss from some Nintendo game?

The multiverse may never know....

Last one in this series!

 

reverse_tarantulas____dipteras__by_monst

This Tarantulas... isn't! In fact, he's not even called "Tarantulas", rather he's Dipteras. He's the Owlman to Tarantulas' Batman (or vice versa I suppose), the polar opposite who has an entirely different identity. The Heroic Dipteras, as you my have guessed, turns into a humble fly, the natural prey of spiders. That might seem backwards, but from his perspective "our" Beast Wars is the sick twisted perversion of everything he loves.

 

 

And because I really liked the idea:

reverse_beast_wars_by_monster_man_08-d8l

As you may have guess, Dinocon's beast mode is inspired by the "Fighting Dinosaurs" fossil and Hailstorm by "The Ant and The Grasshopper" fable. Bugikin's a pill bug since that was the least intimidating bug I could think of. The colors are strictly swaps of the original's primary and secondary colors; the resemblances to Rhinox and Sky-Byte are just an odd coincidence.

For me, the first thing I thought was this version says "Unicron is coming" or "the spawn of Unicron remembers". Maybe I'm just really wanting Game of Thrones to start.

Taking a spin on the whole "Thirteen Original Transformers" idea, 'cause it's sorta becoming a thing or somethin'.

 

Liege Maximo:

sketchformers__liege_maximo_by_monster_m

Personally, I prefer the idea that the Transformers were made by the Quintessons, and that the Thirteen were merely the first* bots who decided their creators sucked and needed to be booted off the damn planet. As such, the Liege ("a" Liege, actually...) takes some design cues from the Quints themselves -- namely the "floating torso and tentacles" look. Maximo turns into a Quintesson Warship . A CLEAR warship. That's probably not tactically sound, but eh. Neither is a giant corkscrew for a ship.

*or maybe they were just the first successful bots...

 

Alpha Trion:

sketchformers__alpha_trion_by_monster_ma

A young Alpha Trion. I always liked how he visibly aged and went from a fairly plain mech to full Barbarian King, so I tried for something in between. He turns into a forklift of some alien variety; besides fitting into that "Pre-Autobots were all manual labor droids" idea, it lends itself for a 'loss of innocence' moment where the slaves realize a part of their anatomy could be used to intentionally harm their oppressors.

Onyx:

onyx_by_monster_man_08-dbfl93j.jpg

Onyx is sort of the quintessential Beast Transformer, a rad centaur-dragon with an animal head for a helmet. Naturally, I had to go the extra mile, making him all weirdly organic and gory and gross. Since the obvious dragon would've been totally redundant, Onyx instead transforms into the Dweller in the Depths -- or at least *a* giant, tentacled, robotic worm monster. Cybertron's had at least three...
