Ever notice Kath SOucie's Janine in the later episodes of Real Ghostbusters sounds like Tara Strong's Sari Sumdac?

@  Maximus Ambus : (28 September 2020 - 02:10 PM)

I wish they were more universal like Beast Wars, Animated or Prime and as professionally done,

@  Maximus Ambus : (28 September 2020 - 02:06 PM)

The Netflix shows are done for adults, the Generation toyline is for adults who grew up with G1.

@  Sabrblade : (28 September 2020 - 12:53 PM)

Who said it ever was?

@  -LittleAutob... : (28 September 2020 - 12:43 PM)

Whatever happened to WFC Earthrise being a kids show X'D

@  wonko the sane? : (28 September 2020 - 11:43 AM)

Cool, my last tablet couldn't run it, and I stopped caring by the time I got the new one. So thanks!

@  Otaku : (28 September 2020 - 11:27 AM)

There are crossover characters, but the amount and distribution... Marvel Vs Capcom this ain't.  If @wonko the sane? my bad!

@  Otaku : (28 September 2020 - 11:21 AM)

I've been playing for *checks account* 1002 days, 23 hours.  So, by 2021, it will have been three years.  I think it takes place in its own continuity, largely inspired by G1 but borrowing from other places.

@  Otaku : (28 September 2020 - 11:19 AM)

@wonko the sane? Can only speak for Earth Wars, but so few they're easy to forget.

@  wonko the sane? : (28 September 2020 - 07:39 AM)

Didn't they already do the across universes thing in that tablet game?

@  Demovere Xeno : (28 September 2020 - 05:30 AM)

Also, make the setting an amalgamation of different Transformers series, rather than based on a specific one. Bring in things like 'Sentinel Major' as the primo Autobot jerk, and sleek car mode Vehicons as the Decepticons' basic grunt.

@  Demovere Xeno : (28 September 2020 - 05:27 AM)

KT just needs to incorporate the vehicle modes into the combat system, like Platinum did for Devastation, so they're for more than just wheeling it across the battlefield. =P

@  Demovere Xeno : (28 September 2020 - 05:25 AM)

Transformers: Warriors of Cybertron! =D

@  TheMightyMol... : (28 September 2020 - 04:50 AM)

@  Demovere Xeno : (28 September 2020 - 04:40 AM)

Man, I just want another Devastation game... =(

@  NotVeryKnightly : (28 September 2020 - 01:53 AM)

Aren't TFs way more varied than Joes, as far as they'd work in gameplay? Like, Omega Supreme is vastly different from Bumblebee.

@  unluckiness : (27 September 2020 - 10:16 PM)

Hell, ripoff Super Robot Wars withTFs

@  unluckiness : (27 September 2020 - 10:16 PM)

IDK they could make something like FF tactics or Fire Emblem ripoff with Robots and i'd buy it

@  Steevy Maximus : (27 September 2020 - 09:43 PM)

See, I feel GI Joe (with it's varied cast) is a better fit for a strategy game, where as Transformers feels more suited for a shooter.

@  Maruten : (27 September 2020 - 08:28 PM)

I might give them points for making a strategy game if it's actually a good strategy game.

@  wonko the sane? : (27 September 2020 - 07:48 PM)

I mean, points for making a strategy game instead of third person shooter, but: urrrrgggg. Cyberverse.

@  wonko the sane? : (27 September 2020 - 07:47 PM)

A transformers game for the switch? *checks* Urrrggg... cyberverse...

@  Steevy Maximus : (27 September 2020 - 06:28 PM)

October will be a big month for Hasbro fans: Zoids, GI Joe AND Transformers all have brand new console games. All on the Switch at that!

@  wonko the sane? : (27 September 2020 - 09:04 AM)

At least in animated he was more driven than just "loyal bootlick".

@  unluckiness : (27 September 2020 - 08:29 AM)

Oof, That's a huge downgrade

@  Maximus Ambus : (27 September 2020 - 02:35 AM)

After rewatching Animated Sound and Fury, in my head canon Titans Return Soundwave is that Soundwave.

@  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.

@  Sabrblade : (25 September 2020 - 07:24 PM)

No decoration could improve the wall more than Knockout himself

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

The wall could use some decorating, though. Maybe a nice shelf or a portrait.

@  -LittleAutob... : (25 September 2020 - 04:32 PM)

Beast Era, a blonde rat called Sunsqueaker.

@  TheMightyMol... : (24 September 2020 - 01:00 PM)

And then Knockout was in the wall again.

@  Sabrblade : (24 September 2020 - 12:53 PM)

Knockout: "Ooh, sorry, Lord Megatron. The correct word was... 'Decepticon'."

@  -LittleAutob... : (24 September 2020 - 11:15 AM)

Knockout: *while doing a crossword puzzle* Lord Megatron, whats a ten letter word for disappointment? | Megatron: ...... Starscream.

@  Maximus Ambus : (23 September 2020 - 01:20 PM)

@Bass X0 Shockwave did it.

@  TheMightyMol... : (23 September 2020 - 11:56 AM)

At least it's not Suntwerker.

@  wonko the sane? : (23 September 2020 - 11:19 AM)

I read that name as "suntweaker" the first time, and was terrified for a moment...

@  Bass X0 : (23 September 2020 - 03:41 AM)

That's kind of interesting.

 

Netflix has been enjoying the success of comic book adaptations lately with their own corner of the Marvel Cinematic Universe, and now the company is making its ties to the comic book world even deeper. The streaming TV giant just acquired its very own comic book company with its purchase of Millarworld.

 

The comic book company is run by Lucy and Mark Millar, the latter of whom you may know as the writer of Marvel’s Old Man Logan and Civil War—which Netflix is happy to point out have both recently served as inspiration for successful movies—as well as Kick-Ass, Kingsman, and Wanted. Though all those have already seen adaptations, there’s plenty more material for Netflix to mine at Millarworld, which they plan to do as Netflix continues to bolster its original content, along with creating brand new properties.

 

Millar’s understandably thrilled with the deal, saying, “This is only the third time in history a major comic book company has been purchased at this level. I’m so in love with what Netflix is doing and excited by their plans. Netflix is the future and Millarworld couldn’t have a better home.” Under the acquisition, Netflix is planning to leverage the Millarworld comics into “films, series and kids’ shows,” as well as fostering the continued creation of original comics.

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.

How do you get to this leap in logic?

 

Kingsman made $414 million on 81 million budget.  Kickass made $96 million on 30 million.  Wanted made $341 million on 75 million.  That's not even touching Logan's $606 million or Civil War's 1.1 billion which has other factors going for it but is still based on adapting Millar work.

 

Dislike his comics all you want, the movies that are made off them are proven bank.

So, what you're saying is that all the good work from Millarworld is already produced or licensed? Kingsman, Kickass, and Wanted have all been made and rights transferred. Superior, Jupiter's Legacy, Nemisis, Starlight and Super Crooks have all been optioned but not made. The only one that's left, not licensed, AND that has real mass appeal potential is ChronoNauts IMO. Best guess? A lot of the deals are about to expire and they're hoping the content doesn't go into production, so they can put them into turnaround and get some quick content?

 

You see the corporate turn on Netflix is already happening. They hold too much caché and you're going to see more and more moves like Disney's, in the end leaving Netflix as the home for crappy VOD cinematic shovel-ware and their own content, which is going to dry out as the subscribers do with quality content. There's going to be a push and pull as more and more services start launching as studios realize that serving content isn't as hard as it once was.

The comics that Kingsman and Wanted are based on are the worst thing ive ever read...wanted was terrible as a movie....and Kingsman, thankfully is FUN as a movie. But i cant lie and say that Kick-Ass and the whole RLSH scene havent had a huge impact on my life.

 

Good for Millar..when he's on, he's awesome. But when he's off...look out.

Best guess? A lot of the deals are about to expire and they're hoping the content doesn't go into production, so they can put them into turnaround and get some quick content?

 

I did some research. The only Millarworld titles that haven’t been optioned are Reborn and The Unfunnies, neither of which seem to have much widespread commercial appeal. Both could work in animation, but I don't think that's why Netflix courted this bedfellow. I can't find any of the option projects entering turnaround (or even getting close to reverting), so this is more of a "acqui-hire" than a real company acquisition. Millar does consistently put out new franchise material that could (usually) be translated to other mediums and this will give Netflix the first right of refusal for those projects, as well as owning the rights to anything that might eventually revert back to the company. Netflix hasn't disclosed the terms, so I'm willing to bet this was a relatively small deal, but Netflix could see Millar as the next Stan Lee and wants to get in while the getting is good, especially given their high-profile breakup with Disney.

Netflix would have probably been better served trying to cut a deal with Image.  Black Science and most of Remender's work would adapt very nicely to Netflix's production style.

 

So, what you're saying is that all the good work from Millarworld is already produced or licensed? Kingsman, Kickass, and Wanted have all been made and rights transferred. Superior, Jupiter's Legacy, Nemisis, Starlight and Super Crooks have all been optioned but not made.

Chrononauts was licensed as it was being written.  I otherwise agree.


Fall of Cybertron will blow your mind. That is all.
