It kept repeating until I sat up.

@  Maximus Ambus : (07 December 2019 - 11:54 PM)

I've been up since three and when sheepish I was hallucinating something knocking twice against my bedroom door.

@  TheMightyMol... : (07 December 2019 - 06:58 PM)

Then repaint Apeface and Snapdragon as Transmetal Optimus Primal and Megatron. It's crazy enough to work.

@  PlutoniumBoss : (07 December 2019 - 05:32 PM)

Moral imperative.

@  Nevermore : (07 December 2019 - 05:13 PM)

Wishful thinking, rumor or leak?

@  Maximus Ambus : (07 December 2019 - 04:48 PM)

Snapdragon for Earthrise.

@  TM2-Megatron : (04 December 2019 - 10:22 PM)

Still not the weirdest thing a Nic Cage character has done in a film

@  TheMightyMol... : (04 December 2019 - 04:00 PM)

Couldn't be worse than him pissing fire as Ghost Rider.

@  Rycochet : (04 December 2019 - 03:38 PM)

The Tim Burton Superman Movie is the DC movie we deserve. It would have Nic Cage in a technosuit punching polarbears.

@  Paladin : (04 December 2019 - 02:59 PM)

Wonder Woman was great. Shazam was amazing. Aquaman... exists.

@  RichardT1977 : (04 December 2019 - 01:54 PM)

TBF, Aquaman and Shazam! were pretty good.

@  TheMightyMol... : (04 December 2019 - 01:00 PM)

Not a difficult feat.

@  Benbot : (04 December 2019 - 11:50 AM)

You just put more effort into telling a compelling story than all of WB's execs.

@  Cybersnark : (04 December 2019 - 11:41 AM)

Cue the flashback to Jonathan, reassuring a terrified child: "What you are is never as important as who you are." Cue Superman's response to Brainiac: "I already know who I am."*John Williams fanfare plays*

@  Cybersnark : (04 December 2019 - 11:38 AM)

I don't think we even really need to see Krypton. I'd start with Clark growing up in Kansas, thinking he's normal, and follow him through the development of his powers. There've been enough alternate takes on Krypton that it could actually work as a mystery; is this the pre-Crisis utopia, the sterile science world, or the relic of a fallen empire? Brainiac was there, and he tempts Clark with the knowledge of what he really is.

@  Otaku : (04 December 2019 - 11:12 AM)

First, a Krypton film, ending with baby Kal-El being found on Earth.  Then Supe's early career film, establishing his values... and if Jonothan Kent needs to die, it happens because of something like a heart attack while Clark is savnig folks on the other side of the world.  After we know Clark minimizes property damage and never kills, have Zod & Company show up and force him to make tough choices.

@  Otaku : (04 December 2019 - 11:07 AM)

Man of Steel seems like someone came up with a Superman trilogy and then the execs said "We've got to catch up to Marvel, make it one film!".  I don't mean that based on the film's actual pacing, but because various story beats make more sense to me if they weren't all squished together.

@  Cybersnark : (03 December 2019 - 07:44 PM)

I've been wanting to write a Superman movie trilogy for years; "Man of Steel" (featuring a Terminator-like Brainiac) was going to be first, with "Last Son of Krypton" (featuring the Eradicator) as the sequel and "Man of Tomorrow" (in which Luthor makes his face-heel turn) as the conclusion. Thanks to Snyder I have to re-arrange my titles.

@  Nevermore : (03 December 2019 - 06:15 PM)

I still wish "Man of Steel" had instead been an adaptation of both the John Byrne miniseries of the same name and the Jeph Loeb/Tim Sale miniseries "Superman For All Seasons".

@  SHIELD Agent 47 : (03 December 2019 - 04:42 PM)

A take I just read: Man of Steel is shot with such a lack of lighting that it is easier to discern what is going on in a porn film.

@  Maximus Ambus : (03 December 2019 - 12:20 PM)

Making Soylant is harder then it looks, it's not like the movies, you have to keep whacking and hacking at the ingredient, it'll scream and fight, maybe bite but eventually it will go down.

@  Paladin : (03 December 2019 - 11:48 AM)

varies from person to person.

@  Benbot : (03 December 2019 - 11:34 AM)

It's an acquired taste

@  CORVUS : (03 December 2019 - 11:17 AM)

Soylent? Its pretty awful.

@  unluckiness : (03 December 2019 - 02:49 AM)

Depends on your denomination of Christianity

@  Patch : (02 December 2019 - 05:52 PM)

@Benbot Do they have a soy-free version? Like maybe just "Lent?"

@  Maximus Ambus : (02 December 2019 - 02:03 PM)

Just occurred to me 'Autobot' Megatron happened in Target 2006.

@  Benbot : (02 December 2019 - 11:48 AM)

have you tried Soylent? It's pretty good! https://soylent.com/

@  Paladin : (02 December 2019 - 10:01 AM)

i prefer free-range human usually. pain in the ass to hunt though...

@  TheMightyMol... : (02 December 2019 - 09:42 AM)

If your human is all bones, you may have purchased a skeleton by accident. Contact your grocer to inquire about exhange policies.

@  Maximus Ambus : (02 December 2019 - 09:31 AM)

Vegans are categorised as human therefore just fall under Soylant, they are usually all bones.

@  wonko the sane? : (01 December 2019 - 04:47 PM)

Cause... that latter one is technically all burgers anyway.

@  wonko the sane? : (01 December 2019 - 04:46 PM)

So... a burger made without meat, or a burger made with the meat taken from a vegan?

@  Maximus Ambus : (01 December 2019 - 04:22 PM)

I had a vegan burger last week, this week I'll give a vegan steak a shot.

@  wonko the sane? : (30 November 2019 - 12:37 PM)

a proper paradox would have broken the board. Nice try though.

@  Maximus Ambus : (30 November 2019 - 01:47 AM)

@  Tm_Silverclaw : (30 November 2019 - 12:01 AM)

I've got the admit. tubi tv is great. It's got a lot of stuff.. Including Super Sentai.

@  Steevy Maximus : (29 November 2019 - 10:35 PM)

There is frankly no better place to (legally) find schlock on the internet for free than Tubi TV

@  Steevy Maximus : (29 November 2019 - 10:33 PM)

It's got all the graphic violence and gratuitous nudity a late 80s OVA should have.

@  Steevy Maximus : (29 November 2019 - 10:32 PM)

Available for free with ads on Tubi TV.

@  Steevy Maximus : (29 November 2019 - 10:32 PM)

It's "Goku: Midnight Eye". Originally produced in the late 80s, it apparently wasn't dubbed until the late 90s given Steve Blum was the lead.

@  wonko the sane? : (29 November 2019 - 06:38 PM)

The description makes it sound like some high grade, mid 80's shlock. Which, frankly, is my groove.

@  TheMightyMol... : (29 November 2019 - 12:37 PM)

Was wondering how long it would take someone to ask.

@  wonko the sane? : (29 November 2019 - 09:58 AM)

okay, it's been like two days so far: what anime is this, cause I'm dying to know.

@  Steevy Maximus : (27 November 2019 - 09:23 PM)

You know you're in for a good time when an old anime starts with a crime lord uses roller skates in his cybernetic legs to skate down the side of the building, launches to a dock and into a getaway boat.

@  Pinkcolliebot : (26 November 2019 - 03:55 PM)

Hey Everyone I'm Making The TF Roll Out Short "Gotta Go Fast!"

@  Benbot : (26 November 2019 - 12:52 PM)

That's what I was hoping for. But here I am, at work the following day.

@  wonko the sane? : (26 November 2019 - 12:29 PM)

You say "die in bed" and I'm thinking "why is that a problem?".

@  fourteenwings : (26 November 2019 - 07:06 AM)

If you don't get out of bed ever your muscles will lock in super-uncomfortable ways and you may get blood clots

@  MEDdMI : (25 November 2019 - 08:53 PM)

You did nothing, and so rocks fall down and you die.

Heretech

 

I was always hoping to see more of this irreverent oddball, but not only did that not happen, but his Matrix-head schtick was stolen by a more prominent villain! Oh well, that just means I can imagine him as a the leader of a ridiculous death metal band, who probably angers the snobbish Tarn more than the Autobots he's mocking.

Sideways is an entertainer for both Autobots and Decepticons, and peppers his magic acts and daredevil feats with plenty of barbs aimed at whoever the current audience is at odds with. Yes, they are all just as awful as you think, unlike you lovely folks, oh ho ho.

Off the stage Sideways avoids both factions, but seems to have struck something of a companionship with the mad Galvatron. Many suspect he’s just taking advantage of the poor confused bot, but perhaps the artiste sees something of himself within the deluded ‘king’ abandoned by everyone else...


______________
Sideways’ head pops off and turns into a little robot while the rest of him becomes a tiny bitty clown bike. Normally I’m against Transformers drastically changing size for their alternate modes, but I’ll make an exception this time. After all it’s just an illusion... probably....

 

MAN! I can't stress how much I absolutely adore this one.

Thanks! I'm quite pleased with him myself. I think he and Soundwave are my personal faves of my little headcanon/redesign series.

Daytrader.

 

I quite like the idea of there being less-than-noble Autobots. Not outright evil ones, just some bots trying to make ends meet in this crazy world, who happen to be on the good guys side.

Brunt

 

I've always liked the idea that Brunt was simply a robot that happened to be a tank (like how Trypticon is a dinosaur and Ravage a cat), but having a robot mode that's a bridge between generic drones from the original cartoon and generic drones from Beast Machines is also cool. Adds a bit of story to a bot who's basically just "extra guns."

Power Core Combiners Sledge

 

...in a fan-mode I made up for him so he wouldn't look so out of place with the Movie Constructicons. It also lets him still have some kind of transformation now that his side hinges have split rendering the vehicle mode broken (apparently a common problem).

 

His regular robot form has a Gigan-esque buzzsaw belly, which I must assume means his favorite attack method is to bear hug his enemies.

Tailwhip

 

Decepticons masquerading as something "friendly" is always a fun concept, and I'm glad there have been a few more bots other than Barricade playing with the theme. Unfortunately, they picked an awful toy to make Decepti-Cop helicopter out of... and bundled it with a somehow even worse toy.

(seriously, this guy you're supposed to open the arm panels, flip out a thumb, and then hide the thumbs by closing the arm panels again. wut?)

 

He looks pretty nice teamed up with Smolder and Barricade, though. Rescue Cons, rise to the rescue...

Taking cues from her Star Trek VS Transformers look. Given how, ah, streamlined this franchise has gotten, I'm glad a new character can still get a radical redesign once in a while.

Slash

 

The Dinobots finally got a goddamn Raptor! Where they got one I couldn't tell ya, but I'd like to think Grimlock demanded Wheeljack make him a baby sister after watching Jurassic Park. And that little Slash had a lot of fun growing up in the 90s when dromeosaurs were everywhere.

Vertebreak, a name so nice they used it twice! Once for the expected back-breaking bruiser, a second time more cleverly for a mad science-snake who takes bots apart and puts them back in more interesting ways. Such as plopping his own head on another's body.

Injector

 

We all had that one toy we really wanted but never ever got as a kid. Mine was a hornet with a fish for a head that turned into a flamboyant Xenomorph. Unlike a lot of other 'holy grails', Injector actually existed, in plentiful numbers, and never suddenly became pop-culturally relevant again, making him rather easy to get later on as an adult. Hooray!

Wreckage

 

For apparently being improvised based on unclear rejected concept art, Wreckage has a pretty damn kickass toy. Other bots wish they had dual guns with flip-out swords than can snap together into a spinning helicopter blade thing.

Back in the day, Happy Meal Transformers actually transformed.

... of course, back in the day they were stupidly hard to find. Not so fun when half the time you get Play-Doh or the girls toy because McD's ran out of the robits.
