@  wonko the sane? : (26 September 2020 - 04:09 PM)

On an unrelated note: I just got the BBTS email about kingdom pre-orders... and even the stuff I don't want I'm perfectly willing to get if it means I can have the rest of it.

@  wonko the sane? : (26 September 2020 - 04:08 PM)

It's digimon. So first one, then the other.

@  TheMightyMol... : (26 September 2020 - 12:53 PM)

50/50 odds, it's either a helicopter with limbs, or a scantily-clad human with heli blades on their back. If female, 90% odds on the second one.

@  NotVeryKnightly : (26 September 2020 - 12:39 PM)

I read that as "Helicoptermon" and wondered what kind of Digimon that was.

@  Bass X0 : (26 September 2020 - 12:35 PM)

Helicopter-mom, transform!

@  Maximus Ambus : (25 September 2020 - 11:58 PM)

Aw I scratched the hood of my 35th anniversary Bluestreak. Fortunately he's in robot mode a lot.

@  TheMightyMol... : (25 September 2020 - 05:04 PM)

Hey, new to the boards

@  RichardT1977 : (20 September 2020 - 02:29 PM)

I had an idea for a Spiral Zone/Go-Busters crossover fanfic...

@  wonko the sane? : (19 September 2020 - 06:35 PM)

I loved what was there, and think it's pretty ripe for "renegades" style reboot.

@  Rycochet : (19 September 2020 - 03:13 PM)

It's a shame as I loved Spiral Zone, and the design from the Japanese Toyline of the same name are fantastic, I adore the monowheel motorbike.

@  Rycochet : (19 September 2020 - 03:12 PM)

Hasbro doesn't seem to have any interest in doing anything with the TV show, haven't greenlit any attempt to rerelease it, and there have been approaches, so I think it may be aother one of Tonka's legal carcrashes where everyone involved owns a piece and it's not really worth anyone sticking their neck out to claim ownership.

@  Steevy Maximus : (19 September 2020 - 01:47 PM)

I feel that homages and references would be a fun way to expand the GI Joe brand, and give a little love to lines that are unlikely to be acknowledged beyond such capacity.

@  Steevy Maximus : (19 September 2020 - 01:47 PM)

I was under the impression that Bandai was more the character design aspects, not story or characters.

@  Rycochet : (19 September 2020 - 12:55 PM)

Also isn't it in rights limbo, given how it's loosely based on concepts from a BanDai series much like GoBots?

@  Rycochet : (19 September 2020 - 12:52 PM)

We don't need a Spiral Zone reboot, in a decade or so we'll be living it.

@  wonko the sane? : (19 September 2020 - 12:49 PM)

Yeah, but it would fundamentally change the base premise of both gijoe and spiral zone. It's either not the world spanning threat it was, or the zone riders are backed up by a competent force. Either way, you compromise the context of both.

@  Steevy Maximus : (19 September 2020 - 12:19 PM)

Akin to what was done with Matt Tracker in 2008.

@  Steevy Maximus : (19 September 2020 - 12:18 PM)

Again, not a PURE transplant, but an integration of ideas and concepts into the world of GI Joe.

@  Steevy Maximus : (19 September 2020 - 12:18 PM)

@Wonko The Cobra Overlord, with help from Dr. Mindbender and Cesspool, develops machines capable of generating a mind-controlling fog. GI Joe stalwarts Flint, Airtight, Lifeline, and Psyche-Out are joined by Colonal Courage to infiltrate these zones and disable the machines. Figures would sport hostile environment suits (Eco warriors cross with Spiral Zone) and make new versions of the mono-wheel vehicles.

@  Maximus Ambus : (19 September 2020 - 09:39 AM)

Hasbroverse.2 with bought properties: Bravestarr, Ulysses 31, Galaxy Rangers, Shadow Raiders, Manta Force, Jayce and the Wheeled Warriors, Mighty Orbots, Jem and Bigfoot and the Muscle Machines. Seamless.

@  wonko the sane? : (19 September 2020 - 08:32 AM)

While acknoledging spiral zone would be pretty boss, I doubt they could actively integrate it into anything else: given the scale of the villains deeds.

@  Steevy Maximus : (19 September 2020 - 08:03 AM)

COPS, Spiral Zone, Shadow Strikers, Action Man, Centurions, MegaForce. They wouldn’t replicate the old lines, but simply acknowledging their existence would be nifty.

@  Steevy Maximus : (19 September 2020 - 08:01 AM)

I would love to see GI Joe become something of a “celebration of action figures”. Hasbro has SO MANY old action figure properties, and many could slot into the GI Joe umbrella with relative ease.

@  Otaku : (19 September 2020 - 12:04 AM)

G.I. Joe, CyberCOPS, and M.A.S.K. all seem like something that would work from Animated or Prime, though CyberCOPS might have been a bit trickier from Prime.

@  Sabrblade : (18 September 2020 - 11:02 PM)

Rik Alvarez originally wanted the last episode of Prime to spinoff into a new MASK reboot.

It seems today the internet was hit with a wall of sequel confirmations and sequel confirmation denials from different actual sources and then news outlets recycling the claims as they desire, while others try to deduce the truth on the presumption that the decision making process is more cohesive than it really is.

In these instances it's best to ignore everything, since a slightly ealier belief that Bumb2ebee is happening won't change the observer experience when it does (or doesn't) happen.

Maybe we'll get Bumblebee, or Optimus Prime, or Transformers 6, or Transformers DOFP, or Cybertron Adventures, it doesn't matter right now when we're still wondering if the home release will have an extended edition with the deleted scene where Charlie and Bumblebee kiss.
Woooo!

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.

Seems like there might have been scenes missing even from the first cut. IMDB has a bunch of credits for Otis's karate teacher and fellow students, who don't appear in either version of the film, as far as I can tell.

Could be made up, though at least one actor's website corroborated him being in the film.

My gripe about the movie is that the Decepticons don't get named again.

That said, I'd love it if someone made a cut where :

"That crazy red and black car? Her name is Crasher. And that violent blue copter dude, let's call him Coptur."

When they have they were usually featuring early unfinished CGI or were just unused animation tests. Bay tends to use everything that is usable instead of doing half measures. But who knows, maybe Travis Knight will have more content of that form in showable form.

The thing about the Transformers is that they cost way, way, way too much to actually render out and then not use. So just about everything that ends up having effects done ends up in the final version.

The one exception that jumps out at me is the scene of Bumblebee and Tessa dancing in the AOE trailer, which looked pretty much finished but wasn't in the movie.

There are probably more or less finished human scenes that are cut, but I can't imagine anybody here is dying to see those.

(Or maybe not. Bay is notorious for bringing films in on budget, and you don't do that by shooting a bunch of crap you end up not using.)

From what the guy that saw the March test screening said, there's two things removed from the cut he saw:

 

- Alot of more evil and dark John Cena scenes, some of Cena's scenes in general were reshot to make him less intense and agressive than he is in the original film even though they kept the context more or less the same.

 

-There's a shot of a G1-ish Megatron in Hooverdam while John Cena's character is talking to other S7 people, and the S7 staff agree that they can't tell Shatter and Dropkick they have him.

 

Otherwise he said the final film has alot more NEW added stuff than it has removed stuff.

I'm ultimately glad it wasn't in the final movie, but I'd like to see the frozen Megatron scene as a home release extra just because I'm curious to take a look at his design and see what was done to G1 him up.

I doubt it was a clever blend of G1 and Movie Megatron or anything. Judging by the design ethos prevalent through most of the rest of the movie, it was just G1 Megatron but ineptly modeled in 3 days.
