It's only murder if they find the body, otherwise it's just a missing persons case.

@  Telly : (24 January 2021 - 02:31 AM)

so light yagami is a BAD role model? but ive already got a death note...

@  PlutoniumBoss : (23 January 2021 - 11:43 PM)

Do you always model proper behavior after anime characters?

@  Tm_Silverclaw : (23 January 2021 - 06:34 PM)

Don't forget Yu-Gi-Oh and the Millennium items.

@  NotVeryKnightly : (23 January 2021 - 02:51 PM)

There was a five season anime with wearing relics as the premise.

@  PlutoniumBoss : (23 January 2021 - 01:16 PM)

You don't wear relics, you enshrine them.

@  wonko the sane? : (22 January 2021 - 06:23 PM)

Wrong holey... and probably the wrong way to dress too.

@  Rycochet : (22 January 2021 - 06:09 PM)

If your underwear is old and holy, it is considered a relic and should be protected with your life.

@  wonko the sane? : (22 January 2021 - 02:04 PM)

That's the argument we keep making: but I still need to wait till feb 8th minimum to replace my holey underwear.

@  TM2-Megatron : (22 January 2021 - 01:57 PM)

Personally I'm glad Ontario wasn't so misguided as to try to define what is or isn't "essential" for big box stores like Walmart to sell. If someone is stuck at home literally for weeks and unable to go out, who's to say a new TV or game console isn't essential (if only for one's sanity) if theirs breaks down?

@  TM2-Megatron : (22 January 2021 - 01:55 PM)

Although fortunately, Ontario's daily cases and positivity rate has been on a steady decline for the past week or so; if they can get the vaccinations back on track, there is some hope.

@  TM2-Megatron : (22 January 2021 - 01:53 PM)

And as far as Canada's lockdowns go, I'm guessing none of them will end until late March, or perhaps the beginning of April. What small businesses that might be left at that point will be allowed to open for their going out of business sales.

@  TM2-Megatron : (22 January 2021 - 01:52 PM)

Unfortunately the CEO of Target Canada made more money by running the company into the ground than he ever would have had he made it a success, so there was zero incentive to succeed.

@  TM2-Megatron : (22 January 2021 - 01:51 PM)

Target made some serious mistakes when they came into Canada. They focused on opening like 150+ stores within a 2 year timeframe and had no online infrastructure whatsoever; their website literally only contained legal blurbs and a store locator... lacking even the ability to see what they sold in stores, or if it was in stock and, if so, where. They should have started with 1/3 the number of stores with a full online experience including online shopping and inventory checking

@  wonko the sane? : (22 January 2021 - 12:35 PM)

See; quebec is under a new lockdown, have been since the 26th. It's supposed to end the 8th of february, but probably won't. Stores are only supposed to sell necessities (in deference to the stores which are closed.), but the quebec government made no effort define what counts as a "necessity", only punished them for getting it wrong. So I can buy all the candy I want, but not underwear, boots, winterwear, small appliances. Hell, my brother had to explain why he wanted a FUSE when he needed to fix his stove shortly before new years.

@  wonko the sane? : (22 January 2021 - 12:31 PM)

Targets don't exist in canada anymore. They lasted like 3 years before abandoning the market. But even if they WERE still here: they would be under the same poorly defined restrictions as walmart.

@  -LittleAutob... : (22 January 2021 - 12:10 PM)

Target's better-

@  wonko the sane? : (22 January 2021 - 07:51 AM)

HA! my walmarts can't even sell underwear. There's no clearances going on up here.

But eventually destroys everything.

At this point, if I'm going to die then it won't be the wait what killed me. It didn't help any, mind you, but it's not what got me.

@  PlutoniumBoss : (16 January 2021 - 09:37 PM)

Technically we are all literally dying to play with our next figure.

@  wonko the sane? : (16 January 2021 - 05:36 PM)

I am figuratively dying to play with that cheetor.

Still waiting for my box from BBTS to arrive.

@  tigerhawk : (16 January 2021 - 04:29 PM)

Kingdoms is fantabulous and it's only the first wave.

@  tigerhawk : (12 January 2021 - 12:10 PM)

My Super Collection Megatron always had two left legs and I just discovered my Thrilling 30 Crosscut has two right hips.

@  Nevermore : (11 January 2021 - 07:56 PM)

Fortunately, it's only Netflix Hound, so not really much of a loss here.

@  Nevermore : (11 January 2021 - 07:55 PM)

So it's been a while since I've had a misassembled Transformers toy.

Speaking to the press, Boulder Media Studio has confirmed working on two new Transformers cartoons.

While the title of one show remains unnamed, the second show is titled as Rescue Bots Academy. Along with the two new Transformers shows, the studio will also develop a new Littlest Pet Shop series and a series based on Micronauts for Hasbro Studios.


Did people know this was coming?

We know they are doing a "Choose Your Own Adventure" style YouTube Rescue Bots cartoon made largely out of clips of the previous show. I think maybe we got a name for that but I don't remember if it was Rescue Bots Academy or not. So no idea if this is it or different.

-ZacWilliam, we also knew Hasbro bought this animation studio and had them working on a TF cartoon of some sort but not What or for When.

The YouTube CYOA thing was announced as "My Transformers: Rescue Bots Adventure" and was specifically called out as using pre-existing footage. So even if the name was changed, I can't imagine why an actual animation studio would need to be involved.

'Rescue Bots Academy'  Does sound like it'd be a proper follow up to the show's events. It could still be the CYOA series, since that kinda makes sense as a 'training' type thing; but it could go either way.

Could be just to make a few framing sequences and composite it all together with new dialogue and stuff maybe? Or maybe not. Shrug.

Here's hoping not. I'd obviously be much happier with a new original continuing RB toon. Extra points if the "Academy" actually gives the existing RBs a bunch of new recruits to train.

-ZacWilliam, or uses or explains those "cadets" that turn up in one episode of the old show with no names or explanation and then vanish never to be seen or mentioned again.

From the press release:
 

The Studio, whose current slate includes animation for 'Transformers', 'Little Pet Shop' and 'Rescue Bots Academy' and 'Micronauts' for Hasbro Studios, as well as 'Danger Mouse' and 'Dorothy and the Wonders of Oz' (Warner Brothers), is ramping up to deliver innovative animation and storytelling across multiple formats and genres.


Reference to "multiple formats" could be referring to the YouTube thing, I suppose. And someone's gonna have to edit the clips together and whatnot, possibly add in some miminimal new material. And I can easily see a "Rescue Bots Academy" framing story where "you" are the cadet and the clips are an instructional thing.

I think the concept of being educated and being able to educate is something that more people need more of in their lives.

No, we don't all know everything but we should spread and share that what we do know.

If I'm consistently misspelling a word, I would want and expect people to correct me as should I imagine all decent people who know the value of good literacy.

Its just arrogant laziness to know you're spelling a word incorrectly and not correct yourself or ignore the advice when people do tell you how to spell a word correctly.

I wonder which of the possibilities this actually means:

A) Chase is not in Rescue Bots Academy

B) Chase has been recast in RBA

C) RBA is only a CYOA clip show for YouTube and doesn't need new voicing for Chase.

Sounds like he doesn't have a lot of solid info on the new show other than he's not been asked to be involved. The bit about it being cast outside of LA doesn't tell us much about it far as I know.


-ZacWilliam, it does feel weird to me that they'd recast a character like Chase at this point if it was a full ongoing show featuring the same characters...

I just find it highly unlikely they'd announced the continuation of Rescue Bots as the YouTube thing and then a while later announce some other, separate new show. I obviously could be wrong, but I think they are almost certainly the same thing.

Whatever this Academy thing is, it has new animation and assets being made for it for sure. Boulder Studio's job lists for the project were specifically looking for designs of that and animators with Toonboom experience.

If Rescue Bots Academy lives up to its name, I'm guessing we wouldn't see Griffin Rock, where Chase is stationed as of the last episode of RB.

 

Well, except every Sunday night at dinner. Not sure how many of those will overlap with the episodes, though.

 

I don't think Blurr or Salvage had specified assignments, so they might join Heatwave and Cade at the Academy? At the very least, Blurr would keep the back-and-forth with RiD going, and Blurr was answering to Heatwave in his last RiD appearance.
