Are they going to call it "I-Did-Nawtflix?"

@  unluckiness : (18 June 2019 - 12:48 AM)

I see, so what the world needs is a Tommy Wiseau streaming service.

@  TM2-Megatron : (17 June 2019 - 11:02 PM)

Well, Conan did start the trend that resulted in a wave of Barbarian films in the mid to late 80s

@  MEDdMI : (17 June 2019 - 10:57 PM)

I keep wanting to read Corman as Conan

@  TM2-Megatron : (17 June 2019 - 10:29 PM)

There needs to be some streaming service that caters to connoisseurs of schlock. Otherwise, a huge part of our cultural history will be wiped away. While many of these films are available on blu-ray, with more coming out each month, it's good they're also available for the streaming crowd.

@  TM2-Megatron : (17 June 2019 - 10:18 PM)

Corman did make an impressive number of barbarian films back in the day. If impressive is the word

@  Steevy Maximus : (17 June 2019 - 08:11 PM)

I mean, where else are you going to see the entire Roger Corman barbarian fantasy library (legally) for free?

@  Steevy Maximus : (17 June 2019 - 08:09 PM)

Oh Tubi TV, you are a haven for terrible films. Netflix, Hulu and Crackle all push for mainstream appeal and prestige, you got the guts to have ready access to dregs even the SyFy channel wouldn't air

@  ▲ndrusi : (17 June 2019 - 01:33 PM)

Also you have Bayonetta and a bunch of Fire Emblem people.

@  ▲ndrusi : (17 June 2019 - 01:33 PM)

...I mean, Tales character. Probably up to/for it.

@  TheMightyMol... : (17 June 2019 - 01:26 PM)

But what if I need to kill a god? Or several of them?

@  ▲ndrusi : (17 June 2019 - 11:25 AM)

Kratos is allowed, but only the one from Tales of Symphonia

@  TheMightyMol... : (17 June 2019 - 10:56 AM)

So no Kratos?

@  ▲ndrusi : (17 June 2019 - 10:42 AM)

In any case I'd rather have another Fire Emblem character than another character from a PlayStation exclusive game who teeeeeechnically was in a spinoff.

@  ▲ndrusi : (17 June 2019 - 10:39 AM)

Kong had his name on the games first, but Mario was the protagonist first. It's debatable.

@  Rycochet : (17 June 2019 - 10:33 AM)

Wouldn't Mario be the one spun off from the Donkey Kong franchise, given that Kong was first?

@  Pennpenn : (17 June 2019 - 05:19 AM)

I would count Wario and Yoshi, but not DK (might be because I wasn't even aware DK was spun off from the Mario franchise until I was in my mid-20s, but whatever)

@  unluckiness : (17 June 2019 - 04:13 AM)

But to be fair, Corrin is the only one I particularly dislike and it's really more boredom due to their blandness as characters

@  unluckiness : (17 June 2019 - 04:09 AM)

It would depend on whether or not you count DK, Wario and Yoshi as part of the Mario franchise or separate. Scratch that, there are more Mario characters even with just the mushroom symbol people but it's a close call.

@  Pennpenn : (17 June 2019 - 02:55 AM)

You'd figure Fire Emblem would have enough characters in Smash. Kinda feels like there's more FE characters than Mario characters.

@  unluckiness : (16 June 2019 - 01:20 AM)

And for hug's sake, I hope that the new Fire Emblem's PC isn't one of the DLC

@  Sean Whitmore : (15 June 2019 - 04:11 PM)

Smash Bros could never touch a new franchise again, and I'd still have laundry lists of side characters and villains I'd love to see included.

@  MEDdMI : (14 June 2019 - 10:38 PM)

I would unironically love Tingle in Smash.

@  Paladin : (14 June 2019 - 02:06 PM)

they HAVE to put Travis Touchdown in at some point now, right???

@  TheMightyMol... : (14 June 2019 - 01:24 PM)

@  Locoman : (14 June 2019 - 12:36 PM)

When will we get Bluster Kong in Smash?

@  unluckiness : (14 June 2019 - 08:20 AM)

The last three DLC characters are Tingle, Charles Barkley and L Tetris block with Reverse L Tetris block as an Echo fighter.

@  MEDdMI : (14 June 2019 - 08:09 AM)

@  Tm_Silverclaw : (14 June 2019 - 02:45 AM)

We really need Subzero or Scorpion in Smash. Violence aside, they are pretty big gaming icons as well.

@  Steevy Maximus : (13 June 2019 - 08:18 PM)

Given Nintendo's relationship with Tecmo, I'm still waiting for Ryu Hyabusa

@  TheMightyMol... : (13 June 2019 - 07:19 PM)

I'm still waiting for Doomguy.

@  Steevy Maximus : (13 June 2019 - 06:47 PM)

I just started watching High School DxD (don't judge me...) and I caught on the Nintendo Treehouse some request Rias for Smash lol

@  ▲ndrusi : (13 June 2019 - 11:25 AM)

@  Nevermore : (11 June 2019 - 04:58 PM)

@  Trpodeca : (11 June 2019 - 03:55 AM)

I just wish they'd release the Astro City paperback trades.

@  Nevermore : (10 June 2019 - 05:31 AM)

As an open-minded heterosexual, I wouldn't mind seeing more of that.

@  Nevermore : (10 June 2019 - 05:29 AM)

Currently in the process of re-reading Kurt Busiek's Astro City. Big props for the issue featuring the "Dancing Master" and its portrayal of non-stereotypical gay characters.

@  TM2-Megatron : (10 June 2019 - 05:25 AM)

Don't phone charges often contain special rapid charge circuitry, though? The voltage might be higher too, given the selfie stick probably has a very basic battery.

@  SHIELD Agent 47 : (09 June 2019 - 11:28 PM)

Glad to be of assistance!

@  Telly : (09 June 2019 - 10:32 PM)

*checks selfie stick and phone charger* huh. perfect fit. thanks!

@  SHIELD Agent 47 : (09 June 2019 - 09:58 PM)

I would use the USB-to-AC adapter that came with my iPhone, though I gather you must have a different brand of cell phone.

@  TM2-Megatron : (09 June 2019 - 05:42 PM)

In that case a generic adapter is probably your best bet, then. Keep in mind a lot of hotels now have plain USB outlets in rooms too, though; but I guess that's not guaranteed

@  Telly : (09 June 2019 - 05:31 PM)

yeah, i just need something small to plug into the wall. im not sure im taking my laptop on my trip later this year and i want a way to charge my stuff

@  TM2-Megatron : (09 June 2019 - 05:04 PM)

They also have wall outlets with built-in USB in addition to the two regular plugs; I installed those around my place so I have USB ports everywhere

@  TM2-Megatron : (09 June 2019 - 05:02 PM)

You might be able to get a generic adapter to use with it at Radio Shack if you know the appropriate voltages or whatever

I have to give them some credit for sticking to most of those class names since Cybertron. I also have to stop and giggle a bit at the fact that each "chapter" in the UT uses an entirely different scheme. = /

Of course there's a figure of Rodimus as some kind of animal girl. Why would I be surprised by this?

Edit: Technically, there IS an Enterprise Class, but being that it's the classification given to Constitution refits ala the Enterprise-A, it'd be between Defiant and Intrepid anyway.

There actually is a Ganges class in the Trek novels, plausible with canon. Christopher L. Bennett's current Enterprise novels establish that the unnamed "Warp Delta" class is named the "Ganges class". Get it? Cause the Ganges River has a great delta.

I've never liked the idea that the refit Enterprise in TMP qualified for a different class name. I'm glad "Enterprise class" has never made it to being explicitly established in canon.

Heh, back in the Beast Wars days, neither myself nor any of my family knew that the Basics were called "Basics" (apparently we never bothered to read the price tags on the shelves), so we just called that size class "Non-Deluxe".

We're more likely to get something like Hasbro changing the name of the Leader class to Prime class. Then the show after Cyberverse will end up named Prime: The Transformers.

So you can buy your Prime class Prime: The Transformers Optimus Prime and display it with you Transformers Prime: Robots in Disguise Optimus Prime.

I hate saying "Legends Seaspray" and it being ambiguous, so I actually still say "Scout" sometimes, too.

Legends Legends Seapsray (Seaspray).

 


That one works better with Skrapnel.

 

Warlocks class


Then all we'd need would be a Hunter class and we'd be set!

Hasbro really really really needs to hire better photographers (or at least someone who knows how to pose these toys well), because Rodimus looks so much better in this video. :love

 

Also, the stickers continue to be glaring in their tackiness. And of course, the biggest ones have been applied over hinges that fold into each other, ensuring tearing on the first transformation. :wtf

Rumors about petty issues, misinterpretations, slander... All this junk data preserved in an unfiltered state, growing at an alarming rate.

I really like Scout as a name over Legends, and hope it makes a comeback!

But the size whose name I find the silliest is Voyager. I mean when you really think about it how does Voyager relate to the size class? Bots who are bigger than a Deluxe are better at traveling? I guesss...? Doesnt really make sense.

Scout -> Deluxe -> Ultra -> Leader -> Titan
feels like a better progression imo. (or Mega instead of Ultra) If you want to keep the V and the made up class title sounding name, then maybe Vanguard or soemthing like that?
 

 

 

The notion that the proportions "don't fit Starscream's character" kind of strike me as odd because G1 Starscream has never had a design that fits his character. He's a sniveling, self-important character whose design comes from a robot designed to be a typical heroic robot, because that's what the Diaclone toy was designed as, and every design afterwards just adopted that. The only Starscream design that was designed towards what media classically associates with Starscream traits is Prime, and to a lesser extent Animated, which give him a silhouette that compliments how shifty and kraven he is.
 
POTP Prime just doubles down on G1 Starscream's powerful anime robot look, so essentially it just built off of what was already there.

 
Are you suggesting that shifty scientists can't hit the gym and get swole, bro?  :-P
 
no, I'm saying popular media tends not to associate those two things with each other when figuring out how to have character design reflect personality.
The way popular media tends to associate being shifty and villainous with being thin and effeminate is just standard queer coding. Like Prime Starscream even has heels! Lol
I like it when media does the opposite: the heroic looking dude (PotP and most G1 Starscreams) is secretly evil and backstabbing. I do wish they did more of its theoretical counterpart and not have every guy thats a hero be super hypermasculine and have a hero thats queer coded. That would be cool to see.

 

 

Yeah, that's unfortunately true about Prime Starscream.

 

But I dunno if I'd call what the other stuff does with Starscream's G1 design much of a juxtaposition. It's treated more as just how Starscream's looks. He's just this evil jet robot who happens to share colors with every main Gundam ever and the American flag and they never really exploit the contrast.

 

It'd be nice if they did, though.

The video makes it look like Hot Rod is red while the Rodimus parts are a darker maroon. Normally I'd be all for that but it's leaving those combined mode shoulders looking a little weird.

The biceps look to be nylon, so I thought maybe that was the difference at first. But those Rodimus forearms sure look to be darker as well. And they're ABS plastic.
