@  TheMightyMol... : (25 November 2020 - 12:58 PM)

Just stick a Megatron head on Optimal Optimus.

@  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.

@  Maximus Ambus : (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.

@  Maximus Ambus : (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)

It's great how they reference G1 concepts like this one features the harmony from the episode Carnage in C Minor and and Slugslingers featured anti electrons from Grimlocks New Brain.

I swear though.. The idea of "Catch up" is stupid.

@  TM2-Megatron : (14 November 2020 - 11:25 PM)

That's irritating, but it sounds par for the course with new hardware release. Within a year, there'll probably be some good stuff out there that does it all.

@  Tm_Silverclaw : (14 November 2020 - 11:23 PM)

4K/HDR switches are.. iffy.. Because most of them can't do 4K and HDR at the same time.. Or can't do 120hz... and all sorts of things the new TVs have built in, and the new consoles use...

@  TM2-Megatron : (14 November 2020 - 11:18 PM)

Maybe now that the PS5's made the whole 4K thing a little more mainstream, the hardware will start becoming more common. I know that's one of the hopes the physical media community has for the 100GB discs the PS5 is going to be using. Prior to this, they were very expensive tor replicate compared to a regular blu-ray and not used very often

@  TM2-Megatron : (14 November 2020 - 11:17 PM)

Up to now, there really haven't been a whole lot of 4K disc players to choose from... Samsung stopped making them altogether when they couldn't compete with the others, so your main choices are a few models of Panasonic or Sony

@  TM2-Megatron : (14 November 2020 - 11:14 PM)

Is there no such thing as a 4K/HDR switch yet?

@  Tm_Silverclaw : (14 November 2020 - 10:10 PM)

Which is fine.. But that still doesn't explain why they arn't putting out up to date HDMI switch boxes to get.. more money.

@  TM2-Megatron : (14 November 2020 - 09:59 PM)

My only TV with a respectable number of ports is my OLED 4K/3D, which has 4 HDMI, 2 USB 2.0s, 1 USB 3.0 and some weird proprietary thing that acts as both component and composite, depending on what you need. But it retailed for $10k when it first came out (I bought it 14 months later for less than half that). THey're going to get as many corners on less expensive sets as they can, which usually means only providing 2 HDMIs.

@  TM2-Megatron : (14 November 2020 - 09:55 PM)

I mean, there are some decent ones for under a grand. But yeah, I imagine that's what they're thinking. Most people I know, unless they're film or A/V aficionados, all they've got hooked up to their TV is a digital cable receiver and perhaps a game console and dated DVD player

@  Tm_Silverclaw : (14 November 2020 - 09:45 PM)

TM2-Megatron... If that is their assumptions.. That is one of the stupidest way to think.. Especially since Multichannel receivers way to fricken expensive for that. 3000 is way to expensive.

@  TM2-Megatron : (14 November 2020 - 09:11 PM)

They probably assume the people who actually need a lot of ports are the type of consumers who'd have a decently high-end Multichannel receiver. Whereas those people who don't need many connections probably don't even have a blu-ray player or anything. Maybe just a gaming console for the kids and an old DVD player.

@  wonko the sane? : (14 November 2020 - 04:04 PM)

I saw that movie. I don't want jim carrey in my head.

@  Maximus Ambus : (14 November 2020 - 03:43 PM)

Soon beam TV programs into brains with a neural transciever anyway.

@  wonko the sane? : (14 November 2020 - 03:28 PM)

I'm surprised they keep reducing the number of ports on TV's.

@  Tm_Silverclaw : (14 November 2020 - 02:52 PM)

Ahh.. No.. I mean an HDMI 2.1 switcher box to give you more imputs on a TV. :D Those should have been released in preparation of the XSX and PS5 considering their touting 2.1 features. :D

My g-d, I saw it with some friends. Every time my friend's laughed, I wanted to call them traitors.

I think I liked naming the girls in Super babes (we wondered about Granny Goodness) and seeing the classic henchmen in the bar (Calendar Girl's Chippendales, the steroid girl from the farmer with mutant animals, joker's three stooges from the Creeper ep, Freeze's parka girls. Who were the two with the caramel and black stripes who gave Batman the milk? Who's henchmen were they?)

But, wow, the sex, the farting, Harley whining, Swamp Thing and the ending with the kissing? So embarrassing. Ivy's final attack on Ivy might have kinda funny but wasn't pulled off so well. The animation was quite atrocious too.

Just spent the last half hour watching clips that people uploaded to YouTube.  (Not the fairest way to judge a movie, I know...)

 

I won't comment on the icky parts, but some of the "funny" stuff kinda felt like Timm saw "Deadpool" and wanted to do something like that, but missed the mark.  Maybe if he didn't use the TNBA actors and designs, it might've worked slightly better.

From what i've read of comments made by Timm. He's basically dodging any 'this is part of the DCAU thing by saying its up to the fans. If you want it be, it is. If you don't, its not.

Although that just begs the question of why try so hard to make it in the style of BTAS/TNBA, get the VAs and play off that nostalgia? Timm also provides the voice of Booster Gold, is that right?

I do agree the humour, or attempts at humour miss the mark a lot of the time.

Highly disappointed in this... 

 

If anyone touts this as a return to Bat:tas... or a celebration of Bat:tas... they are full of shit.

 

Pro: Kevin and Loren are still putting in A+ voice work as the Dynamic Duo 

Con: The writing is so bad you'd wish they had cast new actors.

 

Pro: there are moments when the animation almost fools you into thinking this is a "new adventures" era episode 

Con: 88% of the time, it only reaches a look that's at best slightly off model fanart quality.... while the other 10% of the time you're wondering if they lost the model sheets after JLU ended

 

Pro: Melissa Rauch does fine with her first outing as Harley Quinn

Con: it's too bad it was this Script she was reading from

 

Pro: Paget Brewster won me over as Poison Ivy ..though I still prefer her as Birdgirl.

Con: Kevin Michael Richardson is at his Kevin Michael Richardson-est as Jason Woodrue the Floronic Man... 

 

Pro: Bruce Timm might not be any good at writing these days.. but as the voice of Booster Gold he got at least one good laugh out of me this movie.

Con: John Dimaggio might as well not have even got dressed that morning he came in to voice Swamp Thing... what a horrible waste of potential that was... my lord it's not like this was ostensibly going to be the character's first and only appearance in the Timmverse.

 

I don't know who this was written for.  It might be time to set Timm aside and rebrand the good parts of the DCAU the Diniverse

That was, realistically, average. High hopes and aversion to subject matter are getting people bunged up, but it was still worth watching. No I certainly won't be buying it. But I'm not going to pretend there weren't some great bits, but they weren't as good enough to make me overlook the bad bits.

 

I would be okay with a sequel where Harley meets more of the DCAU.


Woooo!

Okay... so it wasn't a good batman movie.

 

Fun as hell, but not a good movie. The animation was pretty awesome, and the writing for the individual characters was okay IF you were just straight up writing a bio for them. They basically phoned in character interaction. There was a couple of good lines, lots of bad ones.

 

Basically, the entire thing is where a south park episode is sired off of a B:TAS episode. Generally a bad idea, but looked good enough to somebody to get made. I repeat: it was fun. It was fun watching these individuals desperately trying to be their characters in a broken context, but that's about it. Otherwise, it... uh, "smells like discipline.".

I thought Nightwing was involved with Starfire in this new DCAU (at least that seemed to be the case in Justice League vs Teen Titans)?  So I'm guessing, whatever ambiguity about it the creators have left, this isn't really canon with the main DCAU.
