I might need to update my software, or they face regional limitations, cause I found no evidence of either.

DUDE! Starcom and COPS are on Tubi too!

@  Steevy Maximus : (20 February 2020 - 09:29 PM)

Spiffy! The english dub of Bubblegum Crisis on Tubi. It's gotten so hard to find these oldies on modern streaming services.

@  ▲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.

@  wonko the sane? : (18 February 2020 - 06:57 PM)

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

@  TheMightyMol... : (18 February 2020 - 06:02 PM)

Do you want vegans? Because that's how you get vegans.

@  CORVUS : (18 February 2020 - 04:33 PM)

Hook up your sprinkler system to a canister of healthy organic carrot-juice. The kids won't be able to get off your lawn fast enough.

@  TheMightyMol... : (18 February 2020 - 03:59 PM)

@  NotVeryKnightly : (16 February 2020 - 05:21 PM)

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.

@  Patch : (16 February 2020 - 04:41 PM)

Now the slasher villain has to go and knock over the nearest cell tower before butchering horny teenagers.

@  TheMightyMol... : (16 February 2020 - 03:54 PM)

Think of all the horror and mystery movies that involve the bad guys cutting the phone line. Now think about how many people don't even have a land line to cut anymore.

@  Telly : (16 February 2020 - 03:47 PM)

its like that scene in commando. the bad guy has to get to a phone to call the big bad to tell him arnold isnt on the plane. that wouldnt happen today

@  Rycochet : (16 February 2020 - 03:18 PM)

Watching early episodes of the x-files will make you feel super old once you start to notice the techology they use, and the technology they lack.

@  Maximus Ambus : (14 February 2020 - 02:38 PM)

While browsing Youtube vids I read these comments: 'The X Files is such an underrated show' and another 'Brent Spiner is a underrated actor' I want to punch something.

Mini Inferno Review:

 

His new head and red body look really nice, his stickers are far more tasteful than any other stickers in the PotP line, and his various pegs and holes make for a lot of fun possibilities with his combiner feet and guns. I almost didn't pick this guy up, but I'm really glad I did. I want to put Defensor's limbs on him and see what it looks like. 

 

Post a pic when you do, I'd be interested in seeing this.

Looks very good to me.  And doesn't come off as just "Red Defensor" to me, thankfully.


I think the red head, white chest, and eyes connected as a visor rather than two big sunglasses style eyes help.

Aaaand there's my next custom planned.


But in the current, digitized world, trivial information is accumulating every second, preserved in all its triteness. Never fading, always accessible. Rumors about petty issues, misinterpretations, slander... All this junk data preserved in an unfiltered state, growing at an alarming rate. It will only slow down social progress, reduce the rate of evolution. You seem to think that our plan is one of censorship. What we propose to do is not to control content, but to create context.

After seeing on TFW that Hungrr showed up in Auburn, I made another trip through the city of Montgomery looking for him here. No luck at Target, but the second Walmart I went to had one of him, nothing else of wave 2, in a beat up box. I grabbed it and exclaimed my joy to the nearby employee stocking the shelves and bought that joker asap! I have been looking for this guy for close to two months now!

Oh hey, they fixed the paint on Primal's face.  Points to them.

 

Also, that hoverboard is saaaaad.  And how Primal's entire body is just kind of hanging out most of the time is lame.  I regret my vote.

Man, if Razorclaw doesn't get some kind of Leo Prime/Lio Convoy/whatever recolor/retool eventually, I'll be surprised - those shoulder guns seem too deliberately smokestacky.

 

Everything looks good - tho, woof, the limb kibble on Headstrong and Tantrum is rough.

Razorclaw doesn't fit into any particular size class, so you won't be getting a single release of that in any form, just like the CW Constructicons.  And that pretty much is how the shoulder cannons looked on the G1 figure, so they're less "deliberately smokestacky" and more "deliberately like G1 Razorclaw's toy/cartoon model".

Most of the fictional appearances on the wiki have them pointed forward, though that's by no means extensive, and the original toy's ones are so fat and stumpy they barely look like guns. Granted this mostly me forgetting that Razorclaw even had shoulder guns, ever, though, and pre-emptively connecting dots. Some kind of left-field boxset recolor would be neat, if a hard-to-impossible sell.

I still think the 'riding mode' I came up with is better than the surfing monkey, but opinions may vary. If you missed the original OpOp or yours fell apart, it's not a bad choice.
