Ah well, I'll stick to the classic British sitcoms: One Foot in the Grave, Til Death Do Us Part and They Think It's All Over.

@  TM2-Megatron : (05 April 2020 - 12:53 AM)

There's always the original, cheesy as it is

@  Tm_Silverclaw : (05 April 2020 - 12:10 AM)

Dunno... Tonight one of the major networks showed a movie with plagues.. including that listening to their leader causes the first born to die. ;P So nah.. I think the Stand could work. :D

@  TM2-Megatron : (04 April 2020 - 09:18 PM)

That's probably the last thing anyone needs to see, at the moment. Maybe when we get to the end of June/beginning of July and we can venture back out, it might be possible to find some enjoyment in The Stand.

@  Maximus Ambus : (04 April 2020 - 02:08 PM)

I suppose the CBS adaptation of Stephen Kings The Stand will be delayed.

@  wonko the sane? : (03 April 2020 - 12:41 PM)

It arrived! Yay!

@  wonko the sane? : (03 April 2020 - 11:25 AM)

Given how the virus lasts about 3-4 days on metals and plastics, it's about the only way to go about getting stuff right now. I ordered a monitor mount for my desk and the delivery has been pushed back twice already.

@  Maximus Ambus : (03 April 2020 - 11:04 AM)

He ordered it online, says it was to keep those delivery boys in business. I did the same a week ago with some Transformers Studio Series figures off Kapow. Don't know if it's wise or not considering.

@  wonko the sane? : (03 April 2020 - 09:12 AM)

You'd be the first. Everyone else has either been frustrated cause the one they wanted was sold out (like during boxing week.) or rushing to replace something broken.

@  RYNO : (03 April 2020 - 08:53 AM)

I actually walked into a store the other day and just randomly decided to buy at 32inch TV. It was just a Vizio, and grabbed a Mounting Bracket for it. No duress. Just a spur of the moment wanted a TV for my master bedroom.

@  wonko the sane? : (03 April 2020 - 07:31 AM)

Conversely: I've never met a person who wasn't buying a TV under duress... so... yeah.

@  wonko the sane? : (03 April 2020 - 07:20 AM)

I think I've met maybe two people other than myself who count cables before buying a TV.

@  Tm_Silverclaw : (03 April 2020 - 05:33 AM)

Seriously.. HDMI splitters and switches are so bloody finicky, but most tvs don't have enough inputs.

@  Maximus Ambus : (03 April 2020 - 05:09 AM)

Just spent a hour trying to get my brothers new Samsung TV to read his Playstation and Blu Ray player only to find he was using a HDMI splitter.

@  Sabrblade : (01 April 2020 - 08:58 PM)

This morning, for one of my online classes, I had to give a positive oral presentation about a play that I hated having to watch. I went into it completely unprepared and just winged it. My professor LOVED my presentation and thought it was excellent. She believed every word I said and honestly thought that I enjoyed that miserable play. Best April Fools ever!

@  Steevy Maximus : (30 March 2020 - 06:50 PM)

@  Steevy Maximus : (30 March 2020 - 06:50 PM)

@  TheMightyMol... : (30 March 2020 - 06:29 PM)

@  PlutoniumBoss : (30 March 2020 - 05:26 PM)

On the other hand, this is Armada we're talking about. It could have actually been Metroplex.

@  PlutoniumBoss : (28 March 2020 - 11:08 PM)

Shame he wasn't around more. He seemed like such a jolly, happy soul.

@  PlutoniumBoss : (27 March 2020 - 02:16 PM)

No, he was definitely Metroplex. You could tell because he was in Metroplex's distinctive red and green coloration.

@  Paladin : (27 March 2020 - 02:11 PM)

that was Leader-1. or possibly Jolt. maybe Grindor...

@  PlutoniumBoss : (27 March 2020 - 01:57 PM)

Metroplex was in Armada, in a flashback. He was the same size as everybody else. I thought that was the joke.

@  Tm_Silverclaw : (27 March 2020 - 12:39 PM)

@Rodimus Supreme: Gah! You are right! How'd I get that mixed up? x.x;

@  TheMightyMol... : (27 March 2020 - 12:14 PM)

There is no Metroplex. Only Zuul.

@  Rodimus Supreme : (27 March 2020 - 11:13 AM)

@Tm_Silverclaw: There is no Armada Metroplex, he was in Cybertron.

@  Rodimus Supreme : (27 March 2020 - 11:12 AM)

And they'd be better off just retooling Metroplex and Fortress Maximus to be somewhat more accurate and changing/adding parts for interaction with later play gimmicks.

@  Rodimus Supreme : (27 March 2020 - 11:11 AM)

I honestly would prefer that for scale purposes.

@  Cyoti : (27 March 2020 - 11:07 AM)

They can redo all the CW combiners as Titan Class figures like Predaking/Devastator.

@  Dekafox : (27 March 2020 - 07:52 AM)

They could just redo Metroplex again too. Especially if it's going to be S3 based. They could also do another Primus to go with the coming Unicron.

@  OverDrive73 : (26 March 2020 - 10:56 PM)

If anyone is bored, or interested... I just added the last chapter to my fanfic comic in Allspark Pictures

Gonna need to see it in the context of the show.

Getting a weird Frog vibe from Mike and Leo. The changing of the weapons kinda makes sense to a degree. The G1 cartoon took Mike's nunchaku and replaced them witha grappling hook. I can see why they gave Raph tonfas for a similar reason. Still brutally violent but not stabby violent.

Donnie's whole thing here is looking odd to me. He seems like hes being suspended by the hover thing wrapped arpund his shoulders. But he's got his legs crossed like he's sitting on something.

Edit: woof! That Splinter is going to take some getting used to.

Edit 2: http://ew.com/tv/ris...les/april-oneilthe turtles are actually each a different species of turtle. Thats pretty cool (explaining Leo's decorations)

Watched the reveal stream on facebook.. Not much more new info other than each one of the turtles are different species.

 

Raph - Snapping turtle and de facto leader of the group

 

Leo - Red Eared Turtle and more of a snarky overconfident one

 

Donny - Soft shelled turtle, Less into bio sciences and more into tech and coding, creates battle shells for himself, some possibly with their own personality (probably opening up for a new Metalhead)

 

Mikey - Box Turtle, more of an artist but still the youngest and most innocent of the group. Likes to tag his shell with stickers, can possibly retreat fully into his shell unlike the others.

 

Didn't get much for Splinter and April. Splinter sounds like he's going to be less active than the 2012 series if what Bauza's jokes during the stream can be counted on for his personality. And other than seeing April with her glowing energy bat we didn't really get any background info.

Putting this here rather then the other thread: Okay, right now I think we are more or less in an 'First image of Transformers Animated' period, and that these all might look and work much better in motion... but man those are some ugly designs, especially Splinter who looks kinda rabid...

The colors and dynamic 2D-ness of it remind me of the 2003 series, with the brightness and glowing weapons especially evoking the "Fast Forward" sixth season, while the art style itself (as others mentioned in the other TMNT thread) calls to mind the likes of Animated and its ilk.

Well if the title of this thread could be changed it would probably cause less confusion. Otherwise I don't know why we needed to split them in the first place. It's not like the '87 or 4Kids series were ever considered off topic.

The separate thread already exists.  Even if anybody doesn't personally like it, there's no reason to deliberately muck them up.

 

Changed the thread title for clarity.

For some reason I'm getting a very Don Bluth vibe from that Splinter.


Well, Art is Art, isn't it? Still, on the other hand, water is water. And east is east and west is west and if you take cranberries and stew them like applesauce they taste much more like prunes than rhubarb does. Now you tell me what you know.

TMNT has always been odd for me in that despite being one of my earliest fandoms I've always been fairly loose with it later in life. I tried going all in with the first Nick show but burned out sometime in season 2 (only finished that season because I got the chance to interview Ciro and thus needed to have my facts straight).

 

This is getting a lot of hate but my reaction is...eh. Consider we have just had a show which despite doing some new things was by its creator's admission trying to keep things classic. The four brothers, the Splinter vs Shredder feud, etc. Coming right after that this show has to do something different or there's no point. Heck, Nick did that whole series of shorts which was basically pilots for new takes on the TMNT (A nostalgia driven parody, mecha turtles, etc).

 

I survived Next Mutation. I'm pretty confident I'll survive this.

I don't hate it, but I am fully apathetic about it. 

 

I mean I applaud the attempt to do something different, but it doesn't do anything for me. Maybe as the series go along they can tighten up some of the character designs as I actually kind of like some of the ideas but the execution is... a little rough.

Hate that Raph is leader. Yeah, looks like Fast Forward cuz of the weapons.

Kinda cool that TMNT is doing awesome. 2003 was great. Nick was great. Dunno about this but they seem confident.

I really like Mikey's meteor hammer.
Raph is a bit Hulk-like for my tastes, and the costumes are a little bit busy, but otherwise I love the designs and art style. I was afraid of a homogeneous Flash cartoon look, but this looks a lot closer to Animated.
Raph being the leader is interesting. It's cool to have a new dynamic, but at the same time I wonder what they're gonna do with Leo - "Leonardo leads" is basically his whole deal.
(Also, April!)
