I used to rubber-band Hot-Wheels style construction vehicles together and pretend it was Devestator.

@  Bass X0 : (21 October 2020 - 05:26 PM)

When I was about four years old, my parents bought me Bugbite and tried to tell me it was Bumblebee. I was not yet a fan of Transformers, but I knew that wasn't Bumblebee. I didn't even have the real Bumblebee at that time.

It would come with two soundtracks: the eighties classic and one featuring dubstep and the VAs are popular Youtubers.

I just couldn't think of worse music than disco...

@  NotVeryKnightly : (21 October 2020 - 11:35 AM)

What were you trying to imply with the mocking sarcasm, though? Nobody suggested that '80s music was any more "of it's time" than '70s music.

@  wonko the sane? : (21 October 2020 - 11:18 AM)

I said that disco wouldn't fare much better with the same context: media is property of it's time; biases, culture and limitations are all inherent in that. Some stuff can be brought forward because of an inherently timeless nature or the simplicity with which it was made but lots of media is a time capsule of the period of when it was made.

@  NotVeryKnightly : (21 October 2020 - 08:46 AM)

I'm not sure what you're trying to imply, or what you even think I said.

@  wonko the sane? : (21 October 2020 - 08:11 AM)

Yeah, cause disco would make the transition so much better...

@  NotVeryKnightly : (21 October 2020 - 07:17 AM)

I feel the '80s music would be jarring when running over current-day CGI instead of well, '80s visuals.

@  Maximus Ambus : (21 October 2020 - 05:39 AM)

Not a remake, reanimated scene for scene, like that fan vid titled they were always real to me.

Because we need more remakes these days.

@  Demovere Xeno : (19 October 2020 - 10:36 PM)

@Maximus: I paired the Battle Patrol with Ironworks and they look good together, though the Off Road Patrol would probably fit best as vehicles you're likely to find at a construction site.

@  ZakuConvoy : (19 October 2020 - 09:39 PM)

@  Steevy Maximus : (19 October 2020 - 04:09 AM)

My local Walmart FINALLY got a restock of Generations during the early September reset and got a big shipment of Earthrise wave 1 (the first I’d seen around here). IF, and that’s a big IF, they restock I’m expecting a bunch of wave 3. Or wave 2. But we’ll be skipping one of those waves.

@  Steevy Maximus : (19 October 2020 - 04:08 AM)

Brunt barely appeared here at all, wave 3 was pretty much skipped for a big load of wave 4, with Impactor and

@  wonko the sane? : (18 October 2020 - 10:13 PM)

Brunt is shelfwarming around me. One walmart moved the whole lot of them off to a side shelf, but couldn't be added to liquidate them.

@  unluckiness : (18 October 2020 - 09:01 PM)

Ironworks is a plague. No idea if it was overproduced or if nobody wants it but thing's clogging shelves.

@  Tm_Silverclaw : (18 October 2020 - 04:23 PM)

My walmart the few times I go in will be lucky to have two or three transformers period.

@  TheMightyMol... : (18 October 2020 - 10:29 AM)

I mostly just see walls of Ironworks. And the occassional Siege Hound.

@  Paladin : (18 October 2020 - 08:44 AM)

condolences.

@  Nevermore : (18 October 2020 - 08:40 AM)

My local Symths is still chock full of Earthrise wave 1.

@  wonko the sane? : (18 October 2020 - 08:24 AM)

Yup, generally so much they don't bother with any other waves as the existing stock doesn't sell out.

@  Nevermore : (18 October 2020 - 07:56 AM)

All the damn time.

@  Nevermore : (18 October 2020 - 07:56 AM)

If there's anything there's going to be plenty of stock, it's wave 1.

@  Nevermore : (18 October 2020 - 07:56 AM)

I'm really not worried about wave 1 of a new line EVER.

@  wonko the sane? : (18 October 2020 - 07:47 AM)

At least you got listings for kingdom. walmart canada won't list them until they're actually in stock and that could very well never happen. I'm gonna get mine from BBTS cause I'm not missing out on the maximals.

@  Nevermore : (18 October 2020 - 07:32 AM)

And I don't buy the "they all sold out" explanation. The Kingdom figures are still listed.

@  Nevermore : (18 October 2020 - 07:32 AM)

I don't see any of Friday's reveals at Walmart.

@  Nevermore : (18 October 2020 - 07:23 AM)

There's a difference between "sold out" and "no trace of a listing".

@  Nevermore : (18 October 2020 - 07:23 AM)

There is still a listing for the scalped and sold out Walmart exclusive limited edition version of Gigawatt.

@  Nevermore : (18 October 2020 - 07:22 AM)

But there should still be a listing.

@  Tm_Silverclaw : (18 October 2020 - 06:30 AM)

Probably got scalped and sold out in seconds.

@  Nevermore : (18 October 2020 - 04:10 AM)

And I don't see links anywhere either.

@  Nevermore : (18 October 2020 - 04:10 AM)

So did Walmart somehow fail put up the Headmasters preorders as promised by Hasbro, or have the listings been taken down again? I cannot find them.

Twenty years after it wrapped its run on The WB Network, Hulu, Warner Bros. Animation and Amblin Television are reviving Peabody Award-winning animated comedy Animaniacs with a two-season, straight-to-series order at Hulu.

Under the deal, the streamer has also landed the library rights to AnimaniacsPinky and the Brain, the subsequent Pinky, Elmyra and the Brain and the complete Tiny Toon Adventures collection. Those episodes are available to stream now, with the new Animaniacsset to begin rolling out in 2020 in what Hulu is billing as its first original series made specifically for families.

I feel like getting this cast together is likely to give us something worthwhile, even if it's not the classic the original was.

Disney-owned networks have aired Warner-produced content before. Just saying.

I'm honestly mostly afraid of the animation looking stiff compared to the older stuff. The writing and voice acting could be as on point as ever but if they cheap out on animation I have a hard time seeing this be successful.

Oh there's absolutely no way the jokes will be as "All ages" as the original. They'll get by with Chicken Boo, but I'll be surprised if Slappy Squirrel is allowed to return. Buttons and Mindy are also probably a no-go now-a-days.

Well, nobody will miss Buttons and Mindy, surely?!

I wouldn't be surprised if it's just eleven minute Warners shorts and nothing else. I guess it's unlikely that they'd exclude Pinky and the Brain, but I don't think we'll see the kind of diversity that the original show was made up of.

I'm honestly mostly afraid of the animation looking stiff compared to the older stuff. The writing and voice acting could be as on point as ever but if they cheap out on animation I have a hard time seeing this be successful.

 

The original stuff does have its moments of stiffness, to be fair.

 

I think there are a couple key points if they want to achieve something like the original look. The backgrounds have to be overly detailed and textured compared to the characters. If everything's flat colors with no texture, or the backgrounds are full of people moving, I expect it to bug people even if they don't remember why. It's a look.

 

When the characters need to move quickly, they need to abuse those cartoony motion blurs. It's one of those things that gets forgotten when animators use Flash.

 

They need to make sure the term 'off-model' is not in their vocabulary. Don't even acknowledge it. Draw the characters expressively, not well.

 

I just wonder if they will allow the jokes to be a randy as in the original series.

 

I dread this part going in one of two horrible directions. One direction is it gets sanitized by some jerks who thinks they're being heroic or something. Yakko's a pervert. Deal with it. The other direction I fear is that they'll respect the show's dirty humor but try way too hard to write scenes around their jokes instead of just letting it happen where it can. If it's forced either way it's going to suck.

 

 

I wouldn't be surprised if it's just eleven minute Warners shorts and nothing else. I guess it's unlikely that they'd exclude Pinky and the Brain, but I don't think we'll see the kind of diversity that the original show was made up of.

 

That would be disappointing. The Pinky and the Brain was an unusual success but most of Animaniacs' segments are not strong enough to carry a show on their own. I like the idea of the variety show format giving different micro shows a chance to do what they can with as little time as they need or deserve, when otherwise they'd just get nothing at all.

I am excite for Tiny Toons and Animaniacs classic being available for streaming.

 

I imagine that one of the neater aspects of the New Animaniacs will be seeing how they refresh the Hollywood celebrity pool.

I don't imagine Michelle Pfeiffer, Jack Nicholson, and Mickey Rooney are going to be as easily recognisable as they were 20 years ago.

 

This, of course, means that I'm less likely to recognise those new celebrities.
