Well of course. Your spot now has your body heat in it. That's what the cat really desires.

@  TM2-Megatron : (03 December 2020 - 12:23 PM)

The pictures when you google that are adorable, but unfortunately my cat hates cat-sized beds. He does like getting in the way on human-sized beds, chairs and sofas, though. If you get up, watch out, 'cuz your spot will be gone when you return.

@  wonko the sane? : (03 December 2020 - 09:01 AM)

I learned that the famed ikea cat bed actually IS available in canada, but they called it a doll bed up here for some reason.

*good week

@  Steevy Maximus : (02 December 2020 - 05:35 PM)

It's been a good work for The Hunt: got Netflix Bumblebee (suck it Walmart!) and stopped at Walgreens and found a lone Bluestreak. I'm pretty much done until new stuff rolls out in February

@  tigerhawk : (02 December 2020 - 03:53 PM)

There's some fab fandubs of comic scenes on Youtube, it's MTMTE/LL mostly but there's some great stuff such as Tarn learning of Megatron's defection and Megatron talking to Ravage.

@  Steevy Maximus : (30 November 2020 - 09:31 PM)

Wonderful audio separation and balance.

For Transformers The Movie 86

@  Steevy Maximus : (30 November 2020 - 09:28 PM)

I will say, the blu ray remaster, especially the audio is pretty spot on. Watching it on Apple TV has been enlightening.

I do not overly care for the Bad Batch, but it will be interesting to see what the animated series will bring to the table.

@  SHIELD Agent 47 : (30 November 2020 - 08:59 PM)

Alpha, Delta Squad, Omega Squad, and the Muunilinst 10 are quite the contrast to what we have at present in Disney canon.

@  SHIELD Agent 47 : (30 November 2020 - 08:57 PM)

Who else here read the pre-2008 Clone Commandos and ARC Troopers back in the day?

@  tigerhawk : (30 November 2020 - 05:04 PM)

Monoliths in Utah and Romania.

@  Sabrblade : (29 November 2020 - 05:11 PM)

Also, the face of the black redeco is painted gray.

@  Sabrblade : (29 November 2020 - 05:09 PM)

To be a little fair, the original was also lacking in more detailed color. The Telemocha Series figure fixed that.

@  TheMightyMol... : (29 November 2020 - 05:05 PM)

The unpainted face and all the greys make that look like a knockoff.

@  Sabrblade : (29 November 2020 - 05:01 PM)

One could headcanon this one as such.

@  Otaku : (29 November 2020 - 01:06 PM)

@Bass X0 Weird how they come close, with the likes of Onyx Primal and Nemesis Prime (Universe 2003), but no actual evil gorilla...

Decided to stick with the main cast from 2007 and a few assorted ones here and there.

@  TheMightyMol... : (27 November 2020 - 02:02 PM)

I said I wouldn't buy a lot, now I have seven. And at least three might be on the culling pile.

There was also an evil-looking black and gray redeco of the RobotMasters toy

@  Arazyr : (25 November 2020 - 11:54 AM)

That's KIND-OF what I consider the Throne of the Primes Primal to be...

@  wonko the sane? : (25 November 2020 - 11:16 AM)

I would buy the hell out a nemesis primal...

@  Bass X0 : (25 November 2020 - 11:15 AM)

I'm surprised there's not been a Nemesis Primal given all the Nemesis Primes.

@  unluckiness : (23 November 2020 - 03:17 AM)

The real Drifts were the Windblades we made along the way

Drift-kun 2 Electric Boobylube

@  ▲ndrusi : (22 November 2020 - 11:36 PM)

I'm pretty sure Drift 2 was Empire of Stone.

@  Sabrblade : (22 November 2020 - 10:06 PM)

I thought people said Prime Wheeljack was Drift 2.

@  tigerhawk : (22 November 2020 - 03:51 PM)

Windblade was Drift.2.

@  TheMightyMol... : (22 November 2020 - 02:44 PM)

Drift with boobs.

@  Rycochet : (22 November 2020 - 11:50 AM)

I can't imagine a live action movie version of Windblade being all that different from Drift. Not my thing, but not the worst thing I've ever seen.

@  Bass X0 : (22 November 2020 - 09:54 AM)

The thought of Movie aesthetic Windblade makes me feel sick.

@  NotVeryKnightly : (22 November 2020 - 08:47 AM)

Though, the fact that Japanese people would pay for Windblade toys in the $30-40 range doesn't mean they'd pay however much MPs are going for now.

@  NotVeryKnightly : (22 November 2020 - 08:44 AM)

Back when I made a habit of checking Mandarake for pre-owned TFs, Windblade's toys went for surprisingly high prices. By which I mean not lower than the original price.

@  tigerhawk : (22 November 2020 - 08:15 AM)

If she's in the next movie you might get her.

@  unluckiness : (22 November 2020 - 07:58 AM)

Japan didn't get most of the IDW comics and are the target market for MP. They basically know windblade from a few crappy pack-in comics and a show that wasn't particularly popular there. Unless they start cranking out Cyberverse MPs, it's not very likely.

@  TheMightyMol... : (22 November 2020 - 04:24 AM)

Again, depends if she's popular enough in Japan to warrant it. Our view of which characters are popular is not the same as Takara's.

Just finished watching season 2, not bad, the mirror mystery sort of get solved yet leaves another mystery. One moment, made me think of a quote from the Hobbit films, "That me lad, be a dragon!" Honestly, the character of Viren comes across more as someone who is paranoid as well as greedy, his kids, the son obviously didn't inheirt his father's mind and comes across more as a idiot, while the daughter, she obviously smarter than him, yet cares about her brother. Anyway, this season wasn't to bad thou I do feel there was the lack of consquences for Soren in the long term, in regards to his actions in a town, but that be spoiler if I go furier into detail, about the strangest part of this season, is the boat captain. It seems clear that dragons cannot talk, as humans would say hello to one another, so the baby dragon feelings are expressed through their facal expressions. The cliffhanger of the season was ok, I guess, nothing to really brag about, yet the adventure contuines!

Finished season 2 tonight, nice.

 

There's basically three approaches to "power corrupts" in the characters so far.

 

1) I won't let it corrupt me, and I will reject tainted power. 

2) I won't let it corrupt me, I will find a way to use tainted power for good ends.

3) I tried playing by the rules, but hug it, gimme that sweet, sweet power.

 

Claudia and Soren sit on that knife edge of #2, both are inherently fairly nice people, but neither has a strong moral core either.  They're...normal people in that respect.  They don't have the moral fortitude to be the heroes, but neither are they so easily swayed to jump into evil.  They do bad things for reasons they think are good, and honestly regret it once they realize what they did.

 

As lunkheaded as he may be, Soren is still pretty complex in that regard.  He's the goon who asks the other goon, "Are we the bad guys?"

Yeah, this season did a lot to win me over with those two. Season 1 they just kinda feel like they're gonna be stock bad guys with Claudia maybe going all Azula. She still could for very different reasons now, but they really expanded on their characters in Season 2 to show they arent bad people and kinda really do want the best for our heroes while also still just wanting to please daddy.

That moment where he confessed to Claudia the nature of his secret objective given to him by their father was powerful.

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.

Agreed.  Shows that he knew what he was doing was wrong, but wants to please his father above all else.

And shook Claudia out of her comfort zone in regards to how she'd felt about their father.

Nope, they didn't mention a release date. They talked about the shows future plans (apparently its planed to run for seven seasons), then they talked about spin off book (graphic novels,a guidebook,,etc), a prequel story but their not sure if it'll be a film, or a comic, or a book at this stage, and went over the in-universe timeline.

Well they got their sights on a larger picture but the real question is are they going to be to busy setup a larger world at the expence of the current storyline and characters?

Man, this show's practically still in its beginning stages and already are they planning to make it three times as big as Avatar the Last Airbender was.

 

Each season in TDP has been 9 episodes, compared to 20 in ATLA. They may be planning more seasons, but they're on pace to end up with virtually the same number of episodes and amount of screen time.

 

What I find interesting is that they seem to be setting up an ATLA-type arc, where Callum will learn to connect to each source, but it apparently won't be in lockstep with the names of the seasons. He learned to connect to the Sky in the Sky book, but he never learned any Moon magic in the Moon book. Now that he's had a breakthrough, maybe he'll double time it next season and learn to connect to both Moon and Sun.

 

I'm also curious about the rebranding that will apparently happen after seasons 3 and 5. Absent a toyline marketing push, I wonder why they wouldn't have the whole series just be called The Dragon Prince. Might the next season be setting up a big curveball that will change the trajectory of the series?
