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.

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

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

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)

EIGHT WORDS! THATS A RECORD! XD

@  wonko the sane? : (20 November 2020 - 09:08 AM)

I'd be interested where the rights to Marvel Boy/Justice fall. His character origin is tied most strongly to the Guardians of the Galaxy, as his first version was Vance Astro, but his becoming Marvel Boy involved the Fantastic Four somewhat iirc, and he is a Mutant, but one not ever involved in Mutant books/stories.

I would guess he'd be useable if you just never say "Mutant."


-ZacWilliam, I'd at least like to see him, Nightthrasher and Speedball but honestly I'm open to anything fun from Sleepwalker to Reptil.

does adding Squirrel Girl to a New Warriors show mean there will be horrible tiny rambling subtitles in every episode?

 

Otherwise, i know we wint get Nova, or Rage...but Speedball and Nightthrasher are musts. i cant seperate them from the idea of new warriors.

Speedball is an absolute must, but Night Thrasher, the leader of team, is not?


That is correct.

So, are you prejudiced against...a helmeted Nightwing on a skateboard?


No, I would very much prefer that he was present. But he's no Speedball. Or Justice, or Firestar, etc.
He seems like a hard sell without significant reinvention. I fear if they did use him, it would be as a target of mockery.

Your penance for such casual disregard for Night Thrasher is the casting of...Penance.

In fact I'd prefer the real Penance, cancel this NW show and give us some decent GenX.

Characters revealed:

http://www.cbr.com/s...BR-TW&view=list

Squirrel Girl - Obviously, as she's the one the Network wanted a show about before Marvel sold them on including the NW

Mister Immortal - Makes sense as a member of Squirrel Girl's old GLA team and a quirky guy with an interesting but easy to do on a TV budget power. The only weird bit is he's the only traditionally non-teen guy here.

Night Thrasher and Speedball - sounds like Robbie's powers will be toned down a bit at least to start but these are the two the show needed most to feel like New Warriors to me so cool.

Debrii and Microbe - Huh, I did not expect this book to draw so heavily from that NW series. But I'm cool with it. I quite enjoyed that book/team before Marvel murdered it to make Civil War.

Not the cast I would have guessed. But I think I like it. I've always honestly wanted them to bring Microbe back in the comics anyway.


-ZacWilliam, if they pull off the tone of SG right I think the rest will probably fall into place decently. I would be really interested to see if we get a comic with something like this line up. I think we would if Marvel was smart. But then they've not done anything with the Big Hero 6 so they're kinda not..:

Holy cow, Microbe! That's nice. I hope they treat him well. Debris, well, they needed a sassy girl, though Namorita could have done that too.

I rather liked that reality TV NW mini for it's cartoons art and done in one issues. What if they put Purple Man's sweat in there? Haha

I was a little annoyed for a minute that the lineup wasn't more classic, but then I realized they're using everyone who isn't potentially caught up in a rights issue (Firestar, Namorita) or tangentially related to a more successful property (Nova, Marvel Boy).

 

Still, I'd trade both Microbe and Debrii for Rage. (I'm sure Darkhawk is too out there, budget-wise)

I'm pretty curious what they will do for villains. The Classic New Warriors aren't exactly sporting a major Rogue's Gallery.

-ZacWilliam, and I say that as someone who loves the original run. Neither Squirrel Girl nor the GLA sport much in the way of baddies either...

Maybe it could be like the Justice Friends, where their greatest challenge is learning to get along with each other, but filmed in the style of reality shows like "The Real World."

I know that's not it at all, but a live-action superhero show in that style could be rather entertaining.
