@  TheMightyMol... : (03 October 2019 - 06:59 PM)

Each part of a combiner is a complete toy in itself, so no, not really.

@  PlutoniumBoss : (03 October 2019 - 06:47 PM)

Aren't combiners technically BAFs?

@  Rycochet : (03 October 2019 - 02:16 PM)

The Anniversary Beast Wars figures had BAF parts over a decade ago, the minicons of RiD2 had BAF stuff too, heck, the Takara PVC line had Build A Figures back in the early 2000s.

@  Paladin : (03 October 2019 - 01:35 PM)

can't believe Build A Figures finally came to Transformers...

@  RichardT1977 : (03 October 2019 - 11:26 AM)

Originally Galoob made Micro Machines, but Hasbro bought Galoob.

@  Steevy Maximus : (03 October 2019 - 09:49 AM)

Hasbro owns the IP, but licensed it out to WCT. Hasbro owns Tonka, but hasn't actually made a legit Tonka product in years. Basic Fun (IIRC) is taking that over next year from the existing licensee

@  Benbot : (03 October 2019 - 07:09 AM)

I thought Hasbro made Micro Machines

@  Steevy Maximus : (02 October 2019 - 10:40 AM)

Jazzwares bought Wicked Cool Toys. So I guess Jazzwares is going to be making Micro Machines :p

I don't particularly mind you starting this thread here, videomaster, or I would have read it before now when I moved it to GD, but I gotta ask what the thinking was. You've said twice now you don't want to hang out with Mayhemmers; why were we the first people you thought to invite to hang out with you? X ] 


Shouldn't gravity be doing something?
 
Of course there's a figure of Rodimus as some kind of animal girl. Why would I be surprised by this?

I suggested Mayhem, for a number of reasons. For one thing, if we're doing this once a week, I figured Mayhem could stay interested longer and keep this thread livelier than GD. It could be sorta hangout-ish.

 

This was not at all an evil plan to get Mayhem some new blood.

Fnu said most of the anime watchers hang here. Hence I came here to post the thread.

I'm not sure about actual numbers of people who watch anime and post in Mayhem versus people who do one but not the other but I definitely make anime-related posts more than anyone else on this site considering that I'm like 1/3 of the Japanese image thread nowadays.

At a glance, about half the posts in the Anime Recommendations thread are Mayhemmers. I'd say it's a part of our demographic, in about the same way Pony people are.

That's where I've basically always been with the idea. I don't get college "anime clubs" and whatnot. It's something that grew up out of the very limited access to anime Western viewers had in the 90s and early 00s that made "anime" a definable and manageable thing that people could be fans of. Now it's like being a fan of "television" or "radio". There are genres within the medium that have fan bases, but.

Well that's how it always goes with something like this. There will be shows some like and some you don't.

 

We've had people bow out because they weren't interested in a particular show.

 

The point of the stream is to just hang out, watch some anime, have a good time and maybe learn of a show you didn't know about so you can go get your own copy.

 

It's not uncommon for some people to see what shows we are playing, then go watch the rest on their own, only coming to the stream to hang out.

 

That's basically the point of the 'clubs' finding people who like certain shows with and hanging out.

And I'm not saying it's a bad idea. I said I wasn't interested when there were obvious reasons for them to be popular, so my interest level clearly does not indicate popularity. X ]

Now it's like being a fan of "television" or "radio". There are genres within the medium that have fan bases, but. 

I definitely know what you mean. In the 90s anime was defined was being edgy. Back then anime was more though of as sci-fi with some super national elements, serious drama, dark themes, mature rating, cussing and occasional nudity. It cool because it contradicted the cartoons you grew up with that had slap-stick and wacky sound effective. It took you on incredible adventures and changed your your world view on an emotional level. As a kid it felt like this was something only grow-ups watched. But, it was hard to come by so it also gave you that cool hipster feeling knowing you seen something so few others have like it was your own little secret from the world.

 

Imagine being a little kid and your dad is flipping through the channels to find a Saturday morning cartoon to watch and he finds Vampire Hunter D not knowing what it is about and leaves you to watch it alone while he does dad stuff...

 

The last decade it feels like anime has been flooded with assembly line, status quo, silly comedies. I guess before internet was a thing they only import anime they thought would sell well. Giving us the special stuff instead of everything, now that we have everything it doesn't feel that special...

FWIW, Original Livestream seems to be set to terminate their service on July 9.

 

I'm sad because I'm an Original Livestream user myself.  I like it.  Obscure, out-of-the-way, but works well enough.
