Tarn is in Cyberverse.

@  Benbot : (27 February 2020 - 10:24 AM)

I really don't like that guy. Show the toys, not your face. I'm tired of looking at him.

@  RCX : (27 February 2020 - 09:25 AM)

Toy Galaxy is excellent.

@  Benbot : (27 February 2020 - 09:03 AM)

I think you'll be save in Greenland.

@  CORVUS : (27 February 2020 - 01:12 AM)

Toy Galaxy is my favorite overall toy-related channel on YouTube.

@  fourteenwings : (26 February 2020 - 11:29 PM)

Last year's coverage via Toy YouTubers was brilliant. However, since YouTube's new (unfortunately necessary) guidelines the companies barely invited any of them back, so all we get is super-popular collector's info.

@  PlutoniumBoss : (26 February 2020 - 09:19 PM)

If it weren't for Toy Galaxy's coverage video, I would not have known about the Defenders of the Earth figures. New toys of Flash Gordon, The Phantom, and Mandrake the Magician? In 2020? I would have said you were smoking something strong.

@  Nevermore : (26 February 2020 - 06:32 PM)

So the question is... has Madagascar closed down all its ports yet?

@  Nevermore : (26 February 2020 - 06:31 PM)

A couple that got infected attended a Carnival event with over 300 people in attendance.

@  Nevermore : (26 February 2020 - 06:25 PM)

So the Corona virus keeps getting closer to where I live. Several confirmed cases in my federal state already.

@  Steevy Maximus : (26 February 2020 - 02:20 PM)

Man, only having collector sites to get Toy Fair news from sucks. Did you know there is a 4" line of kids figures for the new Avengers game coming?

@  Dekafox : (26 February 2020 - 11:54 AM)

Since Omega already exists they could name it Auntie

@  Otaku : (26 February 2020 - 10:07 AM)

Oh, and one last Titan,provided we can fudge things a bit to include a character from Transformers: Animated; how about something at least resembling TF:A Omega Supreme?

@  Otaku : (26 February 2020 - 10:05 AM)

How about they find a way to make a mold they can use for both Broadside and Tidal Wave?

@  Maximus Ambus : (26 February 2020 - 02:13 AM)

Optimus Maximus, the mysterious titan of the Arisen, also Iaconus from Cyberverse.

@  TriBlurr : (25 February 2020 - 12:41 AM)

I think the only other Titan class character that would interest me after Scoponok would be Tidal Wave

@  TheMightyMol... : (24 February 2020 - 07:34 PM)

A Titan would have more room for other toys to hang out, assuming one has the table space for it.

@  Darth Gonzo : (24 February 2020 - 03:32 PM)

Play wise which would be better a Commander Class Aircraft Carrier Mode Broadside or a Titan Class Aircraft Carrier Mode Broadside?

@  PlutoniumBoss : (24 February 2020 - 01:53 PM)

I'd be interested in a deluxe or voyager Fort Max in Armada flashback red-and-green.

@  TheMightyMol... : (24 February 2020 - 10:49 AM)

I'd honestly be more interested in Commander-class Scorponok and Fort Max. I don't have the space for Titans.

@  Maximus Ambus : (24 February 2020 - 10:44 AM)

Make Commander class city bots to annoy collectors too

@  TheMightyMol... : (24 February 2020 - 10:43 AM)

Make two Broadsides. One Voyager-sized that only turns into a jet, and one Titan-sized that only turns into an aircraft carrier. Piss off everyone on both sides of the scale.

@  Rodimus Supreme : (24 February 2020 - 10:41 AM)

Since they seem to also go by the oh-so holy cartoon scale thing, he'd probably be a Commander Class figure.

@  wonko the sane? : (24 February 2020 - 10:34 AM)

Broadside is an aircraft carrier. He should probably be metroplex sized.

@  Rodimus Supreme : (24 February 2020 - 10:21 AM)

Broadside's more of a Commander Class.

@  Darth Gonzo : (24 February 2020 - 04:47 AM)

I think Broadside should be the next Titan Class figure.

@  wonko the sane? : (23 February 2020 - 09:38 PM)

I tan nicely! But also have a family history of cancer... so... yeah, pasty for me it is.

@  Otaku : (23 February 2020 - 04:22 PM)

I really do begin to get sunburned after about 5 minutes of direct exposure, nowadays.  Side effect of already being pasty then going on a particular medication.  Yay?

@  TheMightyMol... : (23 February 2020 - 01:36 PM)

It makes me burn. Accursed daystar.

@  Maximus Ambus : (23 February 2020 - 01:33 PM)

Sunshine on my shoulders makes me happy....

@  Vexwing : (22 February 2020 - 03:26 AM)

I watched L.I.L.Y.Cat on there a while back, it was surprisingly good.

@  Steevy Maximus : (21 February 2020 - 08:47 PM)

@Dekafox, no DTP, but they DO have LILY Cat ;)

@  CORVUS : (21 February 2020 - 08:46 PM)

@  Dekafox : (21 February 2020 - 06:25 PM)

Next you'll say they have Dominion Tank Police and L.I.L.Y.Cat

@  NotVeryKnightly : (21 February 2020 - 06:06 PM)

Blugh, the english dub of BGC is atrocious.

@  wonko the sane? : (21 February 2020 - 07:02 AM)

I might need to update my software, or they face regional limitations, cause I found no evidence of either.

@  Steevy Maximus : (20 February 2020 - 10:31 PM)

DUDE! Starcom and COPS are on Tubi too!

@  Steevy Maximus : (20 February 2020 - 09:29 PM)

Spiffy! The english dub of Bubblegum Crisis on Tubi. It's gotten so hard to find these oldies on modern streaming services.

I feel this series is either head down the Transformers Animated route with most fans initial hatred being replaced  by the fun it brings, or it'll be a garbage fire of trying to be hip and new and fail the franchise completely. There is probably a middle ground between but knowing the internet it'll be one way or the other.

 

Looking back it's not easy for me to call any of the cartoons bad so far. The 87 series was really goofy and toy shilling but was always fun, until the grimdark red skies episodes and even than I enjoyed the show for trying something new after years of the rinse, wash, and repeat of Turtles stopping Shredder and Krang from using the Technodrome.

 

The 2003 series seems like the closest we'll get to the classic comics in some ways and still has the best Shredder in Ch'rell. Things may have jumped the shark later on with everything past the Mystic Ninja season, but even then the tone of the series always kept about the same regardless.

 

The 2012 series had fun with the old while bringing in it's new touches. April got a much better role than ever before in the series, and Karai's backstory was a great touch to bring more into the series. But sometimes I think they went a bit far on their gross out moments for a kids show. And while I love the character as it played out through the series, Ice Cream Kitty? Who came up with some of these ideas :D But I hate to say it but it also probably had the best overall cast, but considering the multiple legacy cameos, guest stars of note and more it's hard to give the older series a hard time about it.

 

That gets me thinking. So far I'm not really enthused about Rise's cast. But on that note which version of each main character is your favorite.

 

Leo - While I do really like all of the 2012 series actors, I believe 2003's Michael Sinterniklaas had the best overall. These days Cam Clarke's Leo voice is too high pitch for me, and the rotation between Biggs to Green while not bad never seemed as good as the Leo in the 2003 series.

 

Raph - Sean clinches this one. Love Rob Paulsen but Raph was never really the tough guy in the old cartoon and while Greg Abbey did pretty good in the 2003 series, he always went a bit too much on the accent, which granted they live in New York, but I hate stereotypical accents. Sean Laid off it mostly and was a damn good Raph. The Tough guy that cared more than he let on.

 

Donny - Man it's probably a tie between Paulsen's April crushing and Sam Riegel's brain of brains. Really it's tough because Donny has always been my favorite. I like Riegel's voice much better but he rarely showed more than being the brainy one, while Paulsen's higher pitched voice grates on me a bit but got more to do than be the tech guy this time. Being both only tech guy and the high pitched voice rules out Barry immediately.

 

Mikey - Gotta go with Cipes. I love all three Mikeys but Cipes was the balance between the 80's and 2003 version to me and I think he pulled it off the best.

 

Splinter - Hoon Lee hands down. Love all three versions of cartoon Splinter but Hoon had the best story behind him and sounded the most natrual. 80's Splinter was mostly the chill mentor most of the time, and the 2003 series tried too hard making him sound old. Sadly I think Bauza maybe heading down the same way as the 2003 series.

 

April - While I do love Mae Whitman's April, I got to go with Veronica Taylor's 2003 April. While mostly being the Turtles Girl in the Chair most of the time, she still was a pretty strong character most of the time. That and I liked the relationship between her and Casey more here.

 

Casey - right off the bat 80's Casey is written off with only being a minor recurring nutball. That being said, while I do like the character in the 2003 series more, 2012's Josh Peck wasn't trying so hard to sound like a New Yorker.

 

And Shredder - It's tough to choose. but 2003 Shredders voice sounds so menacing I gotta go with Scott Rayow between all his Shredder appearances in the series. I like Kevin Michael Richardson and he does so well in 2012's series but between Shredders downfall in the later seasons and hearing his voice everywhere else in other series sounding so similar it sometimes blurs characters together for me. But gotta give props at least to James Avery. May not of been a great villainous Shredder but he was always a gret part of a comedy routine.

I dig the new designs. While they'll definitely take getting used to after 5 years of the 2012 CGI, they seem wild and dynamic and there's some clever character ideas that I'm excited to see executed.

The "Wolverine and the X-Men"-ish "we made the badass rebel guy the leader" is the weirdest thing about this to me, but there's tons of story potential in that and I hope to see it done.

Splinter I actually like, there's a bit of a Shifu vibe to him this way.

Most of all I enjoy the impotent fan wailing at designs that aren't The 80s All Over Again.

Seen the images of the new looks to the turtles and I'm not impressed, it looks like Turtles is going the way a lot of modern cartoon shows are going, to deep into the goofy look. I tried the 2012 series but after a couple of eps, I pretty much gave up on it, I felt like the show lost the mojo of the 2003 series which made it great, it seems to try and recreate that feel but failed as they added in bad humour that felt forced instead of natural, not to mention I didn't like the look of the Shedder in it, the 2003 verison really felt like a credible threat to the turtles, plus kind of scary creepy with the full body armour thing and those red eyes, where's the other cartoon ones, nowhere near as intimidating, plus the whole alien thing made the charater more intersting to me, back in the 2003 series, I never could really get into the original TV series when it was on TV, aside from the fact I never knew what time of day it was on, when I saw some of the later eps of the show, fighting against that alien dude (not Krang), things just felt off, yet I was never able to really put my finger on it and mind you I never knew about the comics until sometime after the 2003 show appeared and I thought it was the same show that been on TV when I was younger.

 

Anyway, regards to this modern series coming, I'll give it a shot but I got this feeling I'll end up not bothering to watch it.

Toy reveals are up for Rise.... ow, just ow.

Besides not translating to 3 dimensions well at all we got a few more characters revealed.

April comes with a weird cat or chihuahua called Mayhem

An Origami Ninja which looks to be the basic foot soldier disposable henchman

And Meat Sweats......looks like a psycho butcher mutated into a giant pig man with a tenderizer hammer with a bone for a handle.

As far as the turtles themselves Raph’s proportions are not good, and Splinter is so short and stubby. All the turtles weapons seem to be using the glowing energy effects seen in the artwork except Leo’s one big sword. Even April’s baseball bat has the green energy effect.

April is also without the glasses she was seen with in the artwork.

So is April wielding some sort of magical bat or.. i dunno what. The art kinda makes it look like shes causally floating while leaning back.

 

This is an.. odd departure from the norm.

I agree with Randy. This looks fun so I'm going to give it a go.

 

Had I been dissuaded by the initial pictures/first glace of Animated, I would have missed out on some of my favorite TF fiction of all time.

Nothing wrong with being different. We have three TMNT series already that all have their strengths and weaknesses. But I just don't want a turn like CN did to Teen Titans, Powerpuff Girls and somewhat Ben 10 (more just the animation on Ben)

Those suck and so will this.
