Well of course. Your spot now has your body heat in it. That's what the cat really desires.

@  TM2-Megatron : (03 December 2020 - 12:23 PM)

The pictures when you google that are adorable, but unfortunately my cat hates cat-sized beds. He does like getting in the way on human-sized beds, chairs and sofas, though. If you get up, watch out, 'cuz your spot will be gone when you return.

@  wonko the sane? : (03 December 2020 - 09:01 AM)

I learned that the famed ikea cat bed actually IS available in canada, but they called it a doll bed up here for some reason.

It's been a good work for The Hunt: got Netflix Bumblebee (suck it Walmart!) and stopped at Walgreens and found a lone Bluestreak. I'm pretty much done until new stuff rolls out in February

@  tigerhawk : (02 December 2020 - 03:53 PM)

There's some fab fandubs of comic scenes on Youtube, it's MTMTE/LL mostly but there's some great stuff such as Tarn learning of Megatron's defection and Megatron talking to Ravage.

@  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.

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.

@  Otaku : (29 November 2020 - 01:06 PM)

Decided to stick with the main cast from 2007 and a few assorted ones here and there.

@  TheMightyMol... : (27 November 2020 - 02:02 PM)

I said I wouldn't buy a lot, now I have seven. And at least three might be on the culling pile.

@  tigerhawk : (27 November 2020 - 11:44 AM)

There was also an evil-looking black and gray redeco of the RobotMasters toy

@  Arazyr : (25 November 2020 - 11:54 AM)

That's KIND-OF what I consider the Throne of the Primes Primal to be...

@  wonko the sane? : (25 November 2020 - 11:16 AM)

I would buy the hell out a nemesis primal...

@  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.

Unless most of the Apocalypse cast comes back for Dark Phoenix, it'll probably feel like a bit of a strange continuation.  I suppose they'll be able to get most of the kids, but are McAvoy, Fassbender and Lawrence done with X-Men at this point?

Because 1) They reset the timeline so none of that ever happened. And 2) they did a horrible job of it the first time.

Yeah but X3 is an affront to God and nature that, much like the Wolverine Origins film, is rapidly being buried as never having actually happened.

 

That said, I have zero hopes for a Dark Phoenix film because Fox hasn't spent any time developing the cosmic side of the X-verse, and really a dedicated tale about the Dark Phoenix would require the same amount of set up that the MCU's Phase One required. Much like how Warner Brothers somehow thinks they can jump straight into the Justice League with only a movie's worth of groundwork laid, Fox doesn't seem to grasp that the Dark Phoenix requires more then just a 11th hour reveal at the end of a film as set up. But then, they did the same thing to Apocalypse.

 

Seriously, after the success of Disney and the MCU, you'd think the competitors would start figuring out why MCU movies are making wads of cash.

I love the concepts of any one of those. But having not introduced the Shi'ar or even the possibility of life outside of Earth in the X-Men movie universe, I just don't see how they could do Dark Phoenix any kind of justice.

I doubt Deadpool will be a disappointment. The people working on it care too much (as evidenced by what they could do with the budget of the first movie). This isn't just another paycheck for them. It's a love project. Those tend to do well.

I hope New Mutants does do well. I absolutely adore Wolfsbane and Magik. Kinda like how Blink really thrilled me to no end in Days of Future Past, I'd really like to see the movie introductions of Wolfsbane and Magik to be received well.

Has James Mangold expressed any interest in doing non-Wolverine X-movies? You'd think Fox would want to keep him around considering how well his 2 movies did.

Fox also should've thought to poach Whedon before WB did. How many other big name directors have an X-Men run on their resume?

Oh you liked Blink? Don't worry its fox so she will be recast, have no costume, and her powers will be wildly different in scope and visual presentation.

Well one of those is already true, as she is going to be part of Fox's TV series "Gifted".  She'll be played by Jamie Chung.  Who I think is a good choice considering Fan Bing Bing played her the first time around (Jamie being American would be better suited for a more meaty role in an English speaking production than Fan Bing Bing, since English isn't her first language).

 

I just hope the look and abilities are the same or similar.  Granted the effects would be as magnificent as DoFP's were, but here's hoping.

Simon Kinberg states that his version of Dark Phoenix will be "grounded, human, emotional & not too intergalactic."

which means they've missed the hugging POINT of an X-Men story YET AGAIN.

what did you expect? these films have always only been "x-men" in name only

 

 

 

X-Men: Dark Phoenix will bring back the cast of X-Men: Apocalypse, including (the usual suspects)
.
.
.
 
Kinberg previously confirmed that the next X-Men movie would jump ahead ten years from Apocalypse, offering a 1990s setting for the sequel.

 

even for comic book time, this is just get ridiculous now. (i think) 30 years is supposed to have passed in these films yet they all look like they did in he first one!

 

also, i am sick to death of dark phoenix. its been done like 5 different times in every media (and this is the second time in film!). i dont doubt its a classic, but there are MANY x-men stories out there to adapt from (not that they can get those right either though). why keep coming back to this one?

 

that said, ill still end up seeing it and buying it on bluray cause ive got all the other x-men movies. no point in stopping now. and who knows? maybe ill actually enjoy it (but i doubt it)


When I die I will surely go to Heaven for i spent my life in Hell
