x-x when in vehicle mode we can travel much F A R T H E R-

@  wonko the sane? : (30 June 2020 - 05:52 PM)

Because despite the fact that we can travel around the world in the time it takes to get a good nights sleep and a couple of meals: people rarely wander more than 25 miles away from home for the duration of their lives.

@  Otaku : (30 June 2020 - 05:49 PM)

I don't know how many days that trip takes - especially while sightseeing - but explaining they're 3936 kilometers (2445 miles) apart gives an idea, paradoxically because it is too large to easily picture.

@  Otaku : (30 June 2020 - 05:44 PM)

Aye.  When I catch lay people discussing miles and not how long the trip takes, it is in an attempt to stress how far away something is... like NYC to LA.

@  ▲ndrusi : (30 June 2020 - 01:20 PM)

But I can imagine 45 *minutes* easily.

@  ▲ndrusi : (30 June 2020 - 01:20 PM)

I can imagine a mile, it's a distance I've run. I can't really imagine 45 miles.

@  ▲ndrusi : (30 June 2020 - 01:19 PM)

I think there's also an element of the thing where things that are much bigger than us all blur together.

@  Otaku : (30 June 2020 - 11:49 AM)

If you're not, then you're more concerned with how long it takes.  Actual distance doesn't tell you that very well.  Besides traffic and road conditions, you'll need to know what kind of driving (city/interstate/rural/etc.).

@  Otaku : (30 June 2020 - 11:47 AM)

Distance matters if you're being paid by the mile.

@  TM2-Megatron : (30 June 2020 - 11:44 AM)

Canadians are the same way, for the most part. If you're driving somewhere far, especially, it helps you plan out the day more than a distance in KM would.

@  Otaku : (30 June 2020 - 11:42 AM)

We use the time it takes to get someplace because that is what is relevant to us.

@  TheMightyMol... : (30 June 2020 - 10:55 AM)

Because even we can't figure out miles half the time.

@  Paladin : (30 June 2020 - 09:54 AM)

it's a big country with a lot of empty space. between our citizens' ears.

@  Bass X0 : (30 June 2020 - 09:52 AM)

Why do most Americans measure distance by hours of driving?

@  TM2-Megatron : (29 June 2020 - 07:26 PM)

And as a result the world's lone blu-ray release of the film, an Australian disc that came out 7 years ago, now goes for hundreds of dollars on eBay. Thanks Disney.

@  TM2-Megatron : (29 June 2020 - 06:21 PM)

Well, they censored Daryl Hannah's butt in Splash :rolleyes

@  Paladin : (29 June 2020 - 05:43 PM)

maybe New Mutants is too bad even for D+.

@  Steevy Maximus : (29 June 2020 - 05:00 PM)

X-Men films are coming to Disney+ next month. But will they censor Hugh Jackman's butt?

@  -LittleAutob... : (29 June 2020 - 12:44 PM)

Pft.

I will grant you a recolored body, and recolored troops to command.

@  Cybersnark : (29 June 2020 - 09:47 AM)

I don't want to be reissued. This body sucks, I wanna be updated.

@  Nevermore : (29 June 2020 - 09:43 AM)

I definitely don't intend to be reissued. Nobody would buy me.

@  Bass X0 : (29 June 2020 - 08:31 AM)

will anybody else attempt to be reissued?

It sounds as though a lot of people find his altmode doesn't fit together and/or that his feet are floppy and he won't stand up. I assume, given the diversity of reaction, that he's very QC-dependent.

Mine holds together well in car mode and the feet are fine, but he falls apart easily. The doors, front wheels, and hands pop off easy during transformation.

 

That sounds terrible, but given that a good 60% of the figure is brand new, there's a very good chance those issues have been fixed.

 

After five movies, I've got franchise fatigue, but finally doing justice to Bumblebee's '76 Camaro mode is enough to get my attention.

 

 

No 70s Camaro TF will ever be better than '07 Cliffjumper and his horrifying skull face.

So, what might the cancellation of Transformers 6 & no more movies for at least three years mean for this subline?

That it only serves as the "Premier Edition" line for the duration of the Bumblebee movie line.

Which was always a chance, even before this news

It means that it still has an insane amount of characters and designs to draw upon!  

 

I mean, at this point, the entire line is probably already planned and designed. Cancelling future movies probably won't affect that.

Yeah, if Hasbro is willing to keep making new toys of not-G1 with no ongoing media support. I'm not willing to bet they are, unless China can justify it.

I would assume it depends entirely on how well it sells. If Studio Series does well they're not going to immediately can it just because there aren't any movies in the pipeline, surely?

I imagine "not any movies in the pipeline" can change depending on how Bumblebee performs.

It's just a matter of not making more after whatever the 2018 lineup is. They could easily feel that the budget would be better spent on a line not tied to a marketing vehicle that's not ongoing in any way. Say, more G1.

Stinger does look good. It appears all that business on his right arm folds up pretty nicely. And that car mode is great.

Crowbar also looks good, but...why are his fingers orange?! Who keeps doing that? Also I'm not sure his senseless new feet are actually an improvement on Berserker's.
