I got Studio Series 39 Cogman yesterday and woke up to find he'd decapitated my titans returns figures.

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?

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...

Yeah, I mean, he really just seems to be making some assumptions going off the back of the announcement of "Academy," rather than actually having any information of his own.

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.
