*good week

@  Steevy Maximus : (02 December 2020 - 05:35 PM)

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 - 09:31 PM)

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.

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

@Bass X0 Weird how they come close, with the likes of Onyx Primal and Nemesis Prime (Universe 2003), but no actual evil gorilla...

@  unluckiness : (28 November 2020 - 04:32 AM)

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)

"I'll just get one" I said now I have almost twenty Studio Series figures.

@  Sabrblade : (25 November 2020 - 12:46 PM)

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.

@  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?

This is what Rebirth was leading up to.

 

I was skeptical at first when Rebirth started, but I can't help but be intrigued.

 

Go on, DC. Show Marvel what an event could be.

I'd rather slog through the worst Marvel crossover than touch another DC event, especially if it's part of their bastardised Watchmen jive, but this is certainly a significant project and it will be interesting to see how it all goes.

I doubt I'll read it...but the idea of Dr. Manhattan getting trounced by the Trinity is an appealing one.

 

Seriously, he'd need the rest of the Watchmen just to even the odds...and that'd only last so long.

That's Manhattan's main weapon. Just smacking Superman around with his blue dong.

Do you remember the rest of the Watchmen?

They aren't "evening up" anything.

When I was reading some article about whether Watchmen characters should appear in Injustice 2, that was the first thing I thought of :p

 

Part of me is annoyed to see Watchmen being dragged into the main DC universe, but another part really wants to see if this works.  I liked the Rebirth special for the most part, and I think it's possible for Johns to pull this off, if he's on his A-game.

My logic, essentially, is that the other Watchmen would be distracting Batman and/or Wonder Woman while Superman focuses on Dr. Manhattan...and that it would be a short distraction.

 

Seriously, I don't care how powerful you are. You go up against Batman in a face-to-face matchup, and you're screwed. Because he's Batman.

Batman would take out Rorschach, Nite Owl, and Silk Spectre within a minute, they're nothing special. Ozymandias would present the greatest challenge, I could see him being a Deathstroke-tier threat, but Bruce would come out on top in the end.

I still hold that Black Panther would beat Batman, because he's literally Batman but better on every measurable metric.

But then again I don't feel like Black Panther could beat every other character, so...?

I agree. This is a terrible idea and they should have left Watchmen alone as the critically acclaimed story that it is.

Before Watchmen was pushing it. But now? The Watchmen were supposed to be deconstructions of superheroes and the effect they would have on the world, when you have them actually unironically with Superman and Batman you might as well forget all of that. They're just another bunch of capes now in an overcrowded universe.

 

It's especially galling as the Watchmen characters were stand-ins for Charlton characters that DC have already been using in the main series. What's Rorschach gonna do that Question can't?

Eh. Honestly Watchmen is what it is. D.C. Playing with the characters this many years later isn't gonna alter that text any more than the abysmal League or Extrordinary Gentlemen movie damaged the book Tom Sawyer or the novel Dracula.

That said, I think DCs central thesis seems to be to use the Watchmen as representative of misguided gritty-realistic cynicism in contrast to the bright hope they've now (after years of running away from it as hard as they can) decided is the core tenant of the D.C. U. Which seems a bit questionable a takeaway from the actual Watchmen text which despite moments of cynicism also manages a few big moments of hope as well.


-ZacWilliam, I guess if you are using it as symbolic of the era of comics that sprung from it maybe, but that's really reductive and kind of misguidedly judgemental to hang around the neck of the best of that material.
