@  TM2-Megatron : (18 June 2018 - 05:20 PM)

Specifically I'd like to see Skynet's army rise up against him (he did refer to them as an "army of slaves" in Genisys), or even perhaps a peace-minded iteration of Skynet that's existed in a humanoid form long enough to gain some compassion for the human point of view

@  TM2-Megatron : (18 June 2018 - 05:19 PM)

A peaceful resolution would be satisfying for me (it's the only resolution possible in The Matrix series, too), but I think the majority of Terminator fans would walk out think WTF?

@  TM2-Megatron : (18 June 2018 - 05:15 PM)

I liked Clarke as Sarah as well, although I read a lot of complaints online that she looked too young, but I thought she was pretty badass.

@  PlutoniumBoss : (18 June 2018 - 05:11 PM)

I think across these movies, there's a very compelling story about a progressive temporal arms race driven by mutual fear in which Judgement Day keeps getting pushed back, which only gives both sides more time for technological development, and the only true resolution to it is cooperation. But cooperation will never come about because each side fears being wiped out by the other.

@  Paladin : (18 June 2018 - 05:05 PM)

Genisys basically made Sara Connors' entire motivation in stopping judgement day stem from not wanting to sleep with Jai Courtney. and really, can you blame her?

@  PlutoniumBoss : (18 June 2018 - 03:52 PM)

I'll give Genisys another thing, Emilia Clarke made a damn good Linda Hamilton. (As for Jai Courtney looking nothing like Michael Biehn, that just supports my theory that it's not always the same "Kyle Reese" sent back which would explain why John Connor looks different in almost every movie.)

@  Rycochet : (18 June 2018 - 02:54 PM)

I'm not, I'm lost in music.

@  TheMightyMol... : (18 June 2018 - 12:59 PM)

What, again?

@  2018 : (18 June 2018 - 06:33 AM)

It's a time warp. We're trapped in the past.

On the subject of a Mega Man movie

@  Msol : (17 June 2018 - 04:47 PM)

Man I really wish Slash was blue instead of red. Swoop looks off as the only blue one. What a missed opportunity!

@  Otaku : (17 June 2018 - 04:23 PM)

@Bass X0 So, getting back to Mega Man as a movie and smart-aleck answers, wouldn't Astroboy (2009) count? ;) Otherwise, I'm torn; part of me is glad they haven't tried given Hollywood's track record.

@  Paladin : (17 June 2018 - 01:52 PM)

and some TV show...

@  TheMightyMol... : (17 June 2018 - 01:35 PM)

John Connor?! John Connor! JOHN CONNORRRRR!!!!

@  TM2-Megatron : (17 June 2018 - 12:26 PM)

Pretty sure that's what happened to John Connor in that last one

@  MEDdMI : (17 June 2018 - 11:49 AM)

@Nevermore Rice of fhe Macheens: taking over the world with evil robots the size of rice grains.

@  TM2-Megatron : (17 June 2018 - 11:36 AM)

It eventually goes off the rails, but the bones of an interesting story are there. I enjoyed it more than Rise of the Machines or Salvation

@  Nevermore : (17 June 2018 - 11:26 AM)

There was Genysis, Jujjmend Dae, Salvayshon and Rice of the Macheens, or something.

@  TM2-Megatron : (17 June 2018 - 11:25 AM)

I actually re-watched Genisys the other day, and I'll give it one thing. The beginning of the movie with the pre-Terminator 1 future scenes all looked really fantastic.

@  Xellos : (17 June 2018 - 11:08 AM)

Five, actually, with a sixth in development. Varying degrees of cannonicity between them, though.

@  Pennpenn : (17 June 2018 - 07:59 AM)

There was only two movies, right?

@  Paladin : (17 June 2018 - 07:08 AM)

overall, lousy. there's one great one, one pretty good one and everything else under that brand sucks.

@  wonko the sane? : (17 June 2018 - 06:52 AM)

uuuhhh, what do you think the terminator movies are?

@  Bass X0 : (17 June 2018 - 06:35 AM)

Why has Mega Man never been given a Hollywood movie?

@  Nevermore : (17 June 2018 - 04:32 AM)

Considering at least half our workforce is not of "German" descent, racism should really have no place at our workplace.

@  Nevermore : (17 June 2018 - 04:23 AM)

The one thing that really fascinated me was how he was so adamant that his kids have to learn German that he insisted on only speaking German at home. I'm not saying that this is the one true way to do it, but I did respect him for that.

@  Nevermore : (17 June 2018 - 04:22 AM)

Always cheerful, always friendly. Leaves behind a wife and three kids.

@  Nevermore : (17 June 2018 - 04:21 AM)

I'd have done this either way, but in this case it particularly pissed me off because the deceased coworker was literally the nicest person you could possibly hope to meet.

@  Pennpenn : (17 June 2018 - 04:18 AM)

He deserved it to be suspended. What an imbecile.

@  Nevermore : (17 June 2018 - 04:17 AM)

****ing disgusting racist.

@  Nevermore : (17 June 2018 - 04:16 AM)

Guy was immediately suspended from work.

@  Nevermore : (17 June 2018 - 04:16 AM)

He literally said in my face "they only make a big fuss because that token negro died". I said "dude, what are you saying?" He said "my parent taught me to say what I think." I said "bad enough for you to think like that." and then reported him.

@  Nevermore : (17 June 2018 - 04:15 AM)

So I told this other longtime employee that I was planning to go to the funeral, and he went on a tirade about how "other people had died too", and this was only treated as a big deal because this guy was black.

@  Nevermore : (17 June 2018 - 04:13 AM)

A longtime coworker who originated from Ghana had died, really nice guy, I attended his funeral on Friday.

@  Nevermore : (17 June 2018 - 04:13 AM)

So on Thursday I had to report a coworker for extremely racist remarks...

@  Pennpenn : (17 June 2018 - 03:53 AM)

Yes and yes, thank you

@  NotVeryKnightly : (16 June 2018 - 09:27 PM)

Pennpenn: do you mean the one in the tweet? Does a direct link work?

@  Pennpenn : (16 June 2018 - 06:57 PM)

Picture appears to be gone?

@  SHIELD Agent 47 : (16 June 2018 - 04:03 PM)

NVK is right though. IIRC this is IDW's first time utilizing 3P designs in an issue. Discounting that one time with the alternate cover.

@  SHIELD Agent 47 : (16 June 2018 - 03:45 PM)

Huh.

@  Paladin : (16 June 2018 - 03:11 PM)

https://twitter.com/Scotty__P/status/1008013262707986433 check out that panel. It's absolutely MMC's Calidus & Stray.

@  NotVeryKnightly : (16 June 2018 - 03:09 PM)

When has this happened aside from some cover art?

@  Paladin : (16 June 2018 - 02:48 PM)

so apparently IDW is actually using 3P designs in the actual comics now. That's weirdly meta even for them...

@  wonko the sane? : (16 June 2018 - 12:26 PM)

I was all ready to get one today. Walmart didn't have one. Barely had anything on that aisle, and haven't restocked since february.

@  unluckiness : (14 June 2018 - 08:35 AM)

Exactly. I borrowed one and it's a decent toy but not enough to put up with stickers.

@  Pennpenn : (14 June 2018 - 08:30 AM)

So it's possible you just won't ever buy that Rodimus?

@  unluckiness : (14 June 2018 - 05:55 AM)

I'm not buying Rodimus until a version without stickers comes out. I'm not gonna try to paint on flames.

Bonus points if his answer is someone who isn't the star of another book! He's self-described as a long-time TF fan, so it'd be interesting to see what he'd consider if feasibility weren't an issue.

This is possibly one of my favorite episodes we've done yet. Partially because there were several points Callum and I actually disagreed on. As always, I'd love to hear your thoughts, dear listeners.

Nice interview. I looked for that 'Black' book he talked about when I was at the comic shop yesterday but they didn't have it. I might end up looking for it online.

I appreciated his story about going to a Beast Wars panel and meeting the writer. There are some people out there who might benefit from hearing a story like that. In a way I actually like it that there are odd developments in the toy world to deal with when writing stories for these licensed properties, since figuring out how to work those things into a bigger story is a creative process in and of itself. I find it interesting to see how different writers handle that, and admirable when one can take some bizarre toy and bring it to life as a character with a compelling story.

That's a pretty tacky attitude toward Easton after he was nice enough to appear on your podcast. You basically kissed his ass and are now trashing him behind his back. I should have just stuck with not posting here. Bye again.

There is a difference between showing someone respect when they're on your show and liking them as a person versus critiquing someone's work. Brandon Easton is a cool guy to talk to, but his work on M.A.S.K. is garbage. 

 

EDIT: And btw, Easton approached us about being on the podcast, not the other way around.

This episode also introduces a new segment of the show with The Hasbro Universe: RANKED. With this segment, we will be taking audience submissions of stories from across the Hasbro Universe, discussing them, and ranking them from best to worst. However, we do have some guidelines:

 

1. We are judging individual STORIES, not whole series. Some whole series may be considered a single story (like Last Stand of the Wreckers), but keep this in mind when making submissions.

2. Stories must have finished at least one year before they can be considered for ranking.

3. No more than three stories per submission, and only one submission at a time (i.e., wait until after we discuss your first submission before making another.)

4. Submissions will only be accepted through this Allspark thread or through our Twitter account with the hashtag #StorySubmissions.

 

Our current rankings:
