Oh boy, here we go.

@  ▲ndrusi : (19 February 2020 - 02:34 PM)

Or do Japan's cultural values vary depending on exactly who you're trying to shut down?

@  ▲ndrusi : (19 February 2020 - 02:33 PM)

Could it be that, perhaps, these different cultural values might lead to a different approach seeming appropriate?

@  ▲ndrusi : (19 February 2020 - 02:32 PM)

Hm. Back when we were arguing about the Legends comic, I seem to recall being repeatedly told that Japan had different cultural values than the US (and therefore anyone who had a problem with anything at all was wrong to voice that opinion ever).

@  fourteenwings : (19 February 2020 - 07:23 AM)

Plus, as much as I hate to admit it, every single anime character is built to suit the audience's tastes so they buy more merch/do other things that allow $$$ to flow in the production committees direction, so the authenticity is certainly not for representation's sake.

@  fourteenwings : (19 February 2020 - 07:18 AM)

Both those anime air at midnight and are aimed at a very specific audience in a whole other media landscape. Major projects have press releases about almost everything, and there are groups just waiting to pat anybody on the back for doing what they want (GLAAD, HRC, etc)

@  B-Fox : (19 February 2020 - 03:16 AM)

It's funny that a friggin' anime about zombie idols and an anime about a school of anthropomorphic animals can have really positive trans characters WITHOUT a press release about their inclusion in the series prior to the episodes airing or having the creators announcing it on social media and patting themselves on the back for doing a thing.

Vegans are better than kids if you don't talk to them. They'll keep the lawn trimmed anyway.

Japan seems to have a tradition of murder things where cellphones facilitate the killing instead. Like King's Game and Doubt.

@  TheMightyMol... : (16 February 2020 - 05:17 PM)

Or there's just conveniently no reception, or all of their phones are dead at the same time. Or they're just stupid and forget about them.

Dunno how likely these are, but given how all the other unlikely predictions turned out, might as well post it here.

Sounds possible. Not definitely true, but possible. Especially as maybe something to take the place of the exclusive box sets if they drop those.

My only hope is if it IS true that it would just be Prime and Megatron who would not have Titan Masters cause I'd be very disappointed in an Apeface and Snapdragon without that gimmick.

-ZacWilliam, it's not a dealbreaker per-say but it would be a pretty big mark against them imo.

If anything, that's disappointing. I hope THAT part isn't true.

I don't generally mind that, but it does strike me as a thing that could potentially diminish the believability of it. This could change depending on, well, what the molds actually Look like, but it seems that'd be a lot more retooling than simply a new faceplate and some robot bits.

Hard to believe that actual Headmasters who have been on the rumor list for about a year now and everything else came true would end up not being Headmasters. Wouldn't that be very early-stage, foundational tooling design?

I dunno. Maybe it's just me, but rumors sure seem a lot easier to make up then be right by coincidence as of the last few years, simply on the grounds of there being an increasingly-shrinking pool of G1 (or related) characters for them to re-make in some way, plus the increased number of Optimus Prime toys they've been cranking out does invite some obvious "well who ELSE can they make from this general mold".

Of course that Beast Wars logo could also explain why some bullshitter would think claiming an upcoming Beast Wars line might be a safe bet.

I really hope Primal and Megatron were the main design thrust of the molds and Apeface/Snapdragon were the reuses because this franchise owes Beast Wars so much that it's kinda a slap in the face to put two nobody Horrorcons ahead of them in the design phase IMO.

I really hope that Primal and Megatron were considered and used to add visual interest, but that ultimately the molds were designed to be the Horrorcons, as I can't imagine a way to make faithful triple changer versions of the BW guys that would satisfy anyone.

I think the concept of being educated and being able to educate is something that more people need more of in their lives.

No, we don't all know everything but we should spread and share that what we do know.

If I'm consistently misspelling a word, I would want and expect people to correct me as should I imagine all decent people who know the value of good literacy.

Its just arrogant laziness to know you're spelling a word incorrectly and not correct yourself or ignore the advice when people do tell you how to spell a word correctly.
