I was reading some GoBots + Transformers discussion on Twitter and saw a British user point out that "BuggyMan" can sound like "boogeyman".

Runner-up dumb idea: A Bizarro-like clone of Hot Rod named Not Rod.

@  RichardT1977 : (20 August 2019 - 06:25 PM)

One of the dumbest TF ideas I ever had: Hot Rod (by whatever means) produces a son, who is named "Go-Cart".

@  TM2-Megatron : (20 August 2019 - 06:06 PM)

In its current form, DS9 is eventually going to fade from the public consciousness. Even on modern top-of-the-line displays, those old SD masters look like trash, and there's only so long younger generations will be able to stomach them. I can only imagine how they'll look when everyone has ultra-short throw projectors casting 120" images on their walls

@  TM2-Megatron : (20 August 2019 - 06:05 PM)

It's definitely offputting, but Trek is one property I'd be willing to hold my nose and open my wallet for. I care far more about DS9 being available in the long-term, and for future generations, than my distaste for corporate greed

@  Rycochet : (20 August 2019 - 05:39 PM)

'Pay up now and fund this remaster we'll be able to profit from for decades, as this will be your only chance to get that show you like on BluRay... Until the superdeluxe re-release with even more stuff and a metal box.'

@  Rycochet : (20 August 2019 - 05:14 PM)

Stuff they're intending to remaster anyway for their streaming service would become crowdfunding projects.

@  Rycochet : (20 August 2019 - 05:09 PM)

I love DS9, but there is something offputting about giving money direct to Viacom for a project like this, probably because it would set a bad precedent. Given how moneygrubbing they are, it would quickly become their go-to solution for any old show they want remastered rather than dipping their hands in their own deep pockets.

@  TM2-Megatron : (20 August 2019 - 02:48 PM)

A crowdfunding probably wouldn't be that outrageous. The DS9 Documentary "What We Left Behind" that was recently released on blu-ray managed to raise nearly $650,000 on IndieGoGo. Imagine how much fans might contribute if it were guaranteed the remaster would happen provided the goal was reached.

@  TheMightyMol... : (20 August 2019 - 04:10 AM)

Let me call on my friend Dr Rockso, the Rock 'n Roll Clown. (He does cocaine.)

@  Nutjob R/T : (20 August 2019 - 12:48 AM)

New crowdfunding project: We need to get enough nose candy for the Paramount execs to keep 'em up long enough to get DS9 squeezed out

@  TM2-Megatron : (19 August 2019 - 04:36 PM)

They're hideously cheap. I'm just glad some decision maker in the upper echelons stayed high as a kite for long enough for us to get TOS, TNG and TAS on blu-ray

@  Rycochet : (19 August 2019 - 04:16 PM)

Paramount are kinda cheap and Ds9 isn't popular enough for them to go all out on a remaster.

@  TM2-Megatron : (19 August 2019 - 03:37 PM)

Or hell, they could just shorten a season of Discovery by 2-3 episodes and that'd pay for the DS9 remaster in full (assuming the 8 to 8.5 million per episode for Discovery that was reported a while back is accurate)

@  TM2-Megatron : (19 August 2019 - 03:32 PM)

Redoing some of the more simple effects like phasers and transporters and whatnot (basically what they've already had practice doing for TNG)

@  TM2-Megatron : (19 August 2019 - 03:30 PM)

They could scan and rebuild the film elements, and then upscale the original CGI only (provided it still exists as separate footage)

@  Dekafox : (19 August 2019 - 02:33 PM)

Basically its in the same situation as DS9 IIRC with loss of models and how the CGI was applied to the existing footage.

@  Dekafox : (19 August 2019 - 02:32 PM)

Not gonna happen unless they recreate all the CGI from scratch, unfortunately. Or just upscale the broadcast masters, which would be basically pointless.

@  Pennpenn : (19 August 2019 - 03:06 AM)

Everyone quickly gets sick of flubbing the name and collectively agree to just call the combiner "Roadworks"

@  Sabrblade : (18 August 2019 - 09:34 PM)

For some reason, I've always wanted to see a "Menastator", all five Stunticons and all six Constructicons in an 11-piece combiner.

@  Maximus Ambus : (18 August 2019 - 01:35 PM)

Dunno what we'd call a Megatron combiner, we almost got a Megastator in IDW but nothing in Combiner Wars.

@  Paladin : (18 August 2019 - 01:30 PM)

somehow read that as "Megachronic." wonder if Decepticons get the munchies...

@  TheMightyMol... : (18 August 2019 - 11:30 AM)

Skywarp can barely form a coherent sentence half the time.

@  Maximus Ambus : (18 August 2019 - 11:24 AM)

If Cyclonus combines into Galvatronus, does Skywarp form Megatronic?

@  Pennpenn : (18 August 2019 - 09:12 AM)

There's something weird about starting to type Good Omens into a media store's search bar and having it come up with Queen's greatest hits compliations.

@  Tm_Silverclaw : (18 August 2019 - 12:07 AM)

Well then they need to re-release Vector Prime. :D Of course I would accept Vector Prime Headmaster with Alpha Trion as the head.

@  unluckiness : (18 August 2019 - 12:05 AM)

That said, the bendy sword is ridiculous.

@  unluckiness : (18 August 2019 - 12:05 AM)

I dunno, the old one is still pretty good by modern standards and the clunkiness is somewhat in-character.

@  Tm_Silverclaw : (17 August 2019 - 08:37 PM)

We need a new vector prime

Cant wait for the premiere then dodging spoilers for seven months because some affiliate accidentally aired the entire first season while the US gets two episodes every four months.

Because the amount of people who are going to blind buy a $40 Transformers season on DVD are vanishingly small?

I GUARANTEE you more people would see it on CN at 6am.

The timeslot doesn't even matter, since kids don't watch TV live anyway.

 

It's the "never advertised, also taken out of rotation and then dumped as a half-season marathon six months later" that's a problem. But apparently not enough of a problem.

Like, if they co-produce it or something but Netflix doesn't partially own every single show it streams seasons of.

I don't know how actual ownership works, but any new show that debuts in the US on Netflix is at least branded a "Netflix original," even if it's already aired elsewhere in other countries and Netflix wasn't part of the production.

Being branded a "Netflix Original" is not an indication of ownership, one way or the other. It really just indicates that the show is premiering on Netflix (as opposed to any other platform) within a given region.

When that region also happens to be the same region where the show itself is produced, typically, the show is co-financed and co-produced by Netflix.

Ownership itself is a complicated things. Multiple entities can be co-owners of all, or only some aspects of a production. Those same things can also be given out as exclusive licenses without any ownership stake.

It's complicated, and hard to tell, unless somebody on the inside explicitly explains the situation.

No it doesn't.  Netflix can claim it as a "Netflix Original" when they get exclusive region airing rights, and a LOT of those tend to be partially financed by Netflix for that...but Netflix doesn't own anything about, say, Little Witch Academia, despite it being a "Netflix Original".  They just got the exclusive rights to air in the US.

 

 

I do find it a bit disappointing that this is hitting CN, since CN just doesn't seem to actually care about anything they don't produce unless it somehow proves a success.  But if RiD is any indication...the show (or at least parts of it) will cycle onto Netflix by Christmas anyway, especially given how few episodes reportedly make up "chapter 1".

I'm assuming CN getting first dibs pays well enough that Hasbro continues to do so and just roll stuff over to Netflix later on.

Season 3 of RID (aside from the "Season 2.5" Mini-Con miniseries) still isn't up on Netflix, so I'm not sure I'd count on Cyberverse being there by Christmas.

Aside from now realizing why SyFy can refer to Canadian imports as "SyFy Originals"...

 

1. Considering the episode length fits the structure of EVERY SHOW ON CARTOON NETWORK AT THIS POINT, how was it NOT obvious that they'd get the broadcast rights?

 

2. If Netflix doesn't at least partially own a show, that means there's a risk that they'll pull it from their available titles at some point, right?

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.
