I got stabbed in the eyelid by a mudwasp, pulled down a tree, and then got ice cream. You know, all told: not a bad day.

What's your favorite Paleolithic megafauna?

@  TM2-Megatron : (14 October 2019 - 10:06 PM)

Together with the Rhino G1 sets, probably the most expensive DVDs I ever bought

@  TM2-Megatron : (14 October 2019 - 10:01 PM)

I've still got the age-old Rhino sets

@  Telly : (14 October 2019 - 09:09 PM)

i didnt find that at any of the ones around here, so i had to settle for seasons 1 and 2 of duckman for $3

@  Steevy Maximus : (14 October 2019 - 07:45 PM)

Heck, I got the season 2/3 set for $3 (?) from a Dollar General discount bin :p

@  TM2-Megatron : (14 October 2019 - 07:29 PM)

The series is pretty cheap on DVD, too, which at least will work internet or no. The complete series set seems to be OOP, but there's a Season 1 set as well as a combined 2 & 3 set.

@  wonko the sane? : (14 October 2019 - 06:10 PM)

Woot! Beast wars!

@  Steevy Maximus : (14 October 2019 - 06:08 PM)

Yay! Tubi now has the first season of Rescue Bots and the full run of Beast Wars FINALLY available.

@  Benbot : (14 October 2019 - 02:16 PM)

Just like me in a game of Civilization. Don't have gunpowder? Time for your cities to burn.

@  Rycochet : (14 October 2019 - 01:51 PM)

He dubbed the peoples that saw him as bad news cannibals and savages before enslaving and wiping them out too.

@  wonko the sane? : (14 October 2019 - 01:40 PM)

And if they had been unfriendly: he would have simply slaughtered them with diseases they couldn't fight, and technology they couldn't match until they as a people did not exist. There's something about european backgrounds that drive us to exploit.

@  Rycochet : (14 October 2019 - 11:02 AM)

He described the peoples he encountered as some of the most friendly and giving in the world, so naturally, he ate all their food, enslaved them and put them to work looking for gold that did not exist, until they as a people did not exist.

@  Paladin : (14 October 2019 - 09:57 AM)

he landed by coincidence in front of long-term residents.

@  Sabrblade : (14 October 2019 - 09:55 AM)

He said the world was round-o! (He said the world was round-o!) He said it could be found-o! (He said it could be found-o!) That hypothetical, calculated, son-of-a-gun, Columbo! (That hypothetical, calculated, son-of-a-gun, Columbo!)

In the year 1492, Columbus gave us the day off skoo

@  Noideaforaname : (14 October 2019 - 08:59 AM)

How often do people actually celebrate Columbus or the Pilgrims? Usually it just feels like celebrating the first break in the school year and a nice dinner with the family.

@  wonko the sane? : (14 October 2019 - 08:29 AM)

You've got like two more weeks until the american thanksgiving. Canadian thanksgiving is literally a harvest festival.

Hey, everyone. Come together to enjoy this national holiday made to celebrate a mass-murderer who never set foot in the USA. What fun!

@  Benbot : (14 October 2019 - 07:25 AM)

@  lastmaximal : (08 October 2019 - 12:57 AM)

Huh. There's a neat name for Beast Hunters Sharkticon Megs.

@  TheMightyMol... : (07 October 2019 - 11:44 AM)

It's a submarine, we swear!

@  Otaku : (07 October 2019 - 11:26 AM)

@Bass X0 Letting myself comment to say "That's a good one!" and ask "Would a megalodon be a good fit for Megatron?"

@  Benbot : (07 October 2019 - 07:59 AM)

Ohhh good one

@  Bass X0 : (07 October 2019 - 07:39 AM)

I now want a Decepticon shark called Megalotron.

@  TriBlurr : (06 October 2019 - 05:47 PM)

Gives them time to screw up the color of his hands. :p

@  TheMightyMol... : (06 October 2019 - 12:33 PM)

His bulk is too great to teleport across such distances.

@  Sabrblade : (06 October 2019 - 11:09 AM)

Cuz it'll take that long to mass produce.

@  Darth Gonzo : (06 October 2019 - 10:47 AM)

Why is Unicron coming in 2021 and not 2020?

@  wonko the sane? : (06 October 2019 - 06:47 AM)

Shut up rattrap.

I've been waiting for more news on this, because I really want to see this stupid toy folded into Hasbro's modern universe. The show looks potentially less dumb than I assumed it would be. But it doesn't match the toys that are on the shelves right now so Hasbro better get their act together!

I'm hoping this does well.  If this does well alongside the success Voltron has seen...GI Joe might actually have a chance of getting some real attention!

Agreed. If this does well, maybe Hasbro will finally make a TF series on Netflix instead of relying on Cartoon Network and their crappy timeslots.

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.

Something about the voice direction feels off.  I've heard much better from the same voice actors in other series.  I hope it turns out okay.

Decided to try this out tonight. Voice cast is top notch and the animation style reminds me of Spectacular Spider-man. Its got a good slow burning season arc and have a feeling the season end will flip things on its head.

Plus I swear the gang war episode gang has an all female gang in their sixtys with one of them modeled after Nichelle Nichols at her best Uhura shape.

Saw some episodes.  I think it's good, but I feel it will be a hit or miss to some people since it could be seen in the same light as the Max Steel reboot that aired on Disney XD.

Ya I know. I finished the run of episodes available. While I enjoyed the run however the overarching villain plot was pretty predictable.

 

But again the voice cast :love

Watched a couple of eps. Good cast, enough of a plot-arc going on that I'm interesting, but the dialogue is very... first-draft-y.

Finished it tonight. It's solidly good, without ever coming close to hitting great. There's a heck of a lot of Cliche and Super Predictable Tropes for this kinda show, and not a single one of the twists wasn't obvious from pretty near the beginning.

At the same time I didn't really mind that much. if it was a very by the book KidsWB style action superhero show it was at least a well done, fairly fun and interesting one. It reminded me very much of the later era DC Animated Universe or the best Men of Action stuff which is not a Cartoon type we seem to be getting much anymore.

i'd give it a B but an enjoyable one and i will tune in for more if/when they go up.

-ZacWilliam, was hoping they'd swerve and do something different with one of the two reveals and that the obvious answer was a misdirect but nope.

As compared to transforming alien robots or superhero-ish military agents or whatever the heck Masters of the Universe can be classified as? :p

 

Adam Pawlus got press images of the toy line.  Looks fairly standard, though I'm glad at least Stretch himself is getting a proper large size gimmick figure (and I still think the design of the other two characters are viable as well).  The "try in package" of the stretching is a neat feature, even if I'm not overly impressed with the overall design of the line thus far.  Figures look somewhere around 4 inches if the J-hook is a good indication.

If nothing else, I'm glad to see Hasbro has stuff ready to go, rather than "see how it goes" like they did back in 2009/10 with Transformers, GI Joe and My Little Pony.
