Nearly thirty Studio Series figs including the '86 line. "I won't touch that." I said a few years ago when deluxe wave 5 came to my store for a tenner each. My latest one' is 72 Starscream.

The 1988 G1 line up could all have been done as Titan Master things, I figure the Pretenders could be done as Titan Master Drones and Prime Master shells.

@  Cyoti : (08 May 2021 - 11:14 AM)

Perfect is the enemy of the good. And it's still better than making him a remold of RTS Jazz as planned originally. Fact of the matter is: Nightbeat is just not a priority with Hasbro.

@  Demovere Xeno : (08 May 2021 - 08:58 AM)

Generations Nightbeat never really scratched that itch sadly; he looked okay, but his transformation was fiddly, his robot mode had far too many bits and pieces flopping around unsecured, and his chest dragged along the surface in var mode. =/

@  Demovere Xeno : (08 May 2021 - 08:57 AM)

I second wishing that we got a Deluxe Nightbeat from TR, mostly because as a kid he was second-in-command to my old Powermaster Optimus for the longest time. =P

@  tigerhawk : (08 May 2021 - 05:41 AM)

Wipe Out and Wilder it coulda been: Wipe Out is down in the dumps because the Scramble City Trypticon was destroyed and left him a drifting to the point he arrives in Legends World, he finds Wilder and both go on a crime spree subverted by their realisation neither gets any joy from it until they stop a violent crook together and become anti heroes. (Bass XO beat me!)

@  Bass X0 : (08 May 2021 - 05:39 AM)

Yes, Nightbeat and Siren would have been easy remolds of Chromedome - just give them new chests and each other's Titan Master heads. Fangry and Squeezeplay would be remolded from Twinferno with their own Titan Master heads. And Horri-Bull would have been remolded from Wolfwire.

@  Rycochet : (07 May 2021 - 05:10 PM)

Surprised we didn't get a full size retool from the monsterbot mold. I'd rather have a CW Ironhide retool though, we need a van Wilder.

@  tigerhawk : (07 May 2021 - 04:19 PM)

I just noticed Wilder was the only omission from Takara Legends.

@  Nevermore : (07 May 2021 - 01:15 AM)

The weirdest part was that there was a steady influx of voters during the early shift, while hardly anyone showed up during the late shift.

@  Nevermore : (07 May 2021 - 01:14 AM)

It's a fairly well known fact that "it's a wonderful life" only became popular after it dropped into the public domain. So, yeah, they probably did.

@  SHIELD Agent 47 : (02 May 2021 - 08:29 PM)

I read an interesting observation on Twitter. If it is the natural course of a human to grow into Grandpa Abe yelling at a cloud, but nostalgia also yields rose-tinted glasses for the likes of one's youth, then did Greatest Generation adults bemoan how Baby Boomer children loved box office flops such as The Wizard of Oz and It's a Wonderful Life?

@  Otaku : (02 May 2021 - 09:26 AM)

At the same time, with my almost non-existent knowledge of Japanese and how oddly some things translate, seeing "Gorgeous Giorgios Gorges" made me wonder if that would make it "JoJoJo"... which now has my brain terrified of a weird Bobobo-bo Bo-bobo/Jojo's Bizarre Adventure Crossover. @[email protected]

@  Otaku : (02 May 2021 - 09:24 AM)

It is always weird when things align.  This talk of Gorgeous Giorgios Gorges in the SquawkBox reminded me of King Gorgeous Gorge on the FoxBox.

@  -LittleAutob... : (01 May 2021 - 08:52 PM)

Nice

@  Nevermore : (01 May 2021 - 09:03 AM)

I got one even better: After that character by the name of Gorgeous Giorgios dies in a gorge, they name that whole area after him: The Gorgeous Giorgios Gorges.

@  tigerhawk : (30 April 2021 - 01:56 AM)

Paint apps did slide notably during TR, wave one's Titan Masters had detail but wave 2 onwards was absent of them. Wave 5's Ramhorn, Dreadnaut, Scorchfire and Aimless had detail but Murk and Hazard didn't, can't speak for Flameout as I got Legends Twintwist and Slugslinger.

Other than a few overly tight joints, the paints apps are my single complaint about the generations line.

Typewriter? This was the 90s, right? Printers weren't widespread yet?

 

Well, in the early 90s, PCs weren't even that widespread, yet.  They were certainly available, but there wasn't one in every home.  They were still mostly a novelty back then.  Either for young gamers, or higher-end business professionals.  You have to remember, widespread internet access didn't even START to gear up until the mid-to-late 90s and only really took off in the 00s.

 

https://commons.wiki...he_Internet.tab

 

Plus, some people just prefer the "feel" of a typewriter.  It makes them feel like a "real" writer.  There's a certain image people had of writers, and that image included typing away on a old typewriter, for a long time.  The convenience of computers and the importance of always staying connected to your job has pretty much done away with that.  But, back in 91-92, you could get away with just using a old typewriter and just mailing or bringing in your manuscripts.

As a matter of fact, the answer for why it was called "Goof Troop" has indeed been given. A condensed, but still lengthy, explanation can be found in this interview (scroll down till you get passed all of the DuckTales, Chip 'n Dale, TaleSpin, and Darkwing Duck information), while the unabridged full-length history of the show's creation can be found in two posts on Michael Peraza Jr.'s blog here and here.

 

If/when you have the time, I'd definitely recommend giving all three links a complete read, since there is some very fascinating stuff in each of them.

 

But the short answer regarding the show's name being "Goof Troop" was that one of the earliest ideas for the show was that it would be about Goofy as a Scoutmaster leading a scout troop of kids, but that idea fell by the wayside early on as more and more suggestions were thrown at Peraza and his team by various executives who kept changing their minds about what they wanted Peraza and the others to make the show be. When finally asked how he would make the show, Peraza ultimately pitched it as the "father and son sitcom" that the show ended up being, with the title being unchanged from the discarded scout troop idea simply because they liked how it kind of rhymed.

 

 

Meanwhile, in the finally-realized show itself, my impression that the titular "Goof Troop" simply referred collectively to Goofy, Max, Pete, P.J., Peg, Pistol, Waffles, and Chainsaw, as though to say the name simply referred to the show's main stars, this group of funny people formed by two families who lived next door to each other and had crazy adventures and misadventures both in and outside of Spoonerville. That they were a "troop" not in a Scouting sense or military sense, but in the sense that the were simply a group of people.

 

Though, admittedly, the name "The Goof Troop" was actually used in one episode, "Shake, Rattle & Goof", as the name of a rock band formed by Max and P.J. when they wanted to become rockstars once, with Goofy supposed to be their cameraman and Pete their manager, but Colonel Carter of Suavé Records (who was trying to swindle them out of all of their money) basically took over managing their band and left Goofy and Pete as pretty much being roadies.

 

 

 

There's much more where that came from - https://jimhillmedia...get-to-see.aspx

 

Disney Wiki summarizes the unmade shows as follows:

 

 

There were a few ideas for shows planned for inclusion in The Disney Afternoon that never made it off the drawing board.[1]

  • Maximum Horsepower - A show about Horace Horsecollar which gives an explanation as to why he stopped appearing in cartoons after the 1930s. It would have the background that Horace was getting tired of playing minor roles and found out about Mickey's big role in Fantasia. Horace decided that he would go to Walt to try and get him a big role in a movie, but never made it to his office due to getting abducted by aliens that transported him halfway across the galaxy, wanting a hero. Horace, however, wants to return to Earth to continue his acting career.
  • Double-O Ducks - A James Bond-style show that would have starred Launchpad McQuack as the main character. One problem with developing this show was that the name "Double-O" had been Trademarked and Disney couldn't use it. Another problem was that producer Tad Stones had trouble developing Launchpad as a leading character. However, ideas of this show would lead to the production of Darkwing Duck.
  • The Magic Kingdom Show - It would involve a boy and a girl finding out that there is a Walt Disney World in the clouds in which that version of the park and the characters in its attractions and shows are actually alive and can interact with each other.
  • Disney's Critter Country - A show featuring the animal characters from the Critter Country attractions Country Bear Jamboree and Splash Mountain as they collaborate as a community to stop the fiendish plans of Br'er Fox.
  • Thumper's Thicket - A show following the adventures of Thumper from Bambi.

 

 

 

Since this has been bumped again, I'd like to direct your attention to this thing I dug up recently. The blogger did some research into the old Capcom game Adventures in the Magic Kingdom, which came out right after their first two Disney Afternoon titles, initially just curious why the player character has a cowboy hat. She ultimately went down a rabbit hole and discovered strong evidence that it was based on a failed pilot for another series:

 

"From the Disney / TMS partnership, WUZZLES, GUMMI-BEARS, DUCKTALES and WINNIE THE POOH were born, as well as some unrealized television series such as MAGIC KINGDOM."

 

Can you just imagine that? I'm picturing a show that's like Captain N but for Disney park rides. And if I'm interpreting everything correctly, it made it as far as having a multi-part pilot episode written, voice acted, and animated before the higher-ups pulled the plug. Shame that subject never came up in the SyFy interview from earlier this year.

Okay, this is driving me nuts. I saw a video with someone playing Adventures in the Magic Kingdom recently, and it reminded me that I saw an article in the last year or so which not only mentioned a show that sounded like the game would fit the premise, but also had some art featuring the kid in the cowboy hat from the game, but fully realized as a cartoon (or at least development sketch).

 

And now I can't seem to find it. I didn't imagine it, did I?

I thought it was the SyFy piece, but nope, nothing like that there. And I can't seem to find anything else of the sort, either.

 

Am I just losing my mind, here, or is there another article that wasn't posted here (that I hope someone here saw anyway) that talks about it?\

Stop the presses! Have I got some big news for fans of The Disney Afternoon and its old comic book tie-ins!!!

 

A new preorder has shown up on Amazon for Volume 1 of a new series from Fantagraphics called Disney Afternoon Adventures.

 

According to the listing's description, this 208-page Hardcover volume contains reprints of classic Disney Afternoon tie-in comics published way back in the '90s, some of which have never been reprinted after their initial year of release, and one of which has never even been printed in the U.S. before!

 

 

First up is the titular story of this volume, "Just Us Justice Ducks", the two-part comic adaptation of the two-part Darkwing Duck episode of the same name. This adaptation was originally created for the very first Darkwing Duck comic book series by Disney Comics, but that series was canceled before this two-parter saw release. Instead, this two-parter ended up being first published in issue #7 of Cartoon Tales in February 1992, and again in issues #5-6 of Disney's Colossal Comics Collection in September and October of 1992. Since then, it has never been reprinted.

 

 

Next up is a real gem for fans of A Goofy Movie, as it is none other than the original graphic novel adaptation of A Goofy Movie itself. This is a very special treat because this 1996 graphic novel adaptation originates from France and has only ever been published in European countries (and Brazil). This is something that has never ever been published in the United States until now!! The only English version of it that exists is a little pocket-sized release that came packed in with the 1997 VHS release of the movie in the United Kingdom, and that only contained the first 14 out of the comic's 44 pages.

 

I, myself, am astounded that this obscure comic adaptation is getting released in the U.S. at all, after all these years! As an aside, I actually own the original Hardcover release of the French version, as well as the little pocket-sized UK English version, and have scans of the Danish version that can be easily found in an image gallery on Fanpop, and have personally translated both the French and Danish versions into English so that I can understand them, so I'm looking forward to how this new English version will compare.

 

As for the adaptation itself, all of the non-Powerline song sequences have been taken out and replaced with new scenes inspired by those from said omitted song sequences, which now aid in the flow of the story's narrative what with those songs having been taken out. Plus, some other scenes have been either condensed, extended, or slightly rewritten from how they were in the movie, so it's worth a read for anyone who's curious about what all is different and unique about this version of the movie's story.

 

 

And finally, the last story in this volume is another gem of the '90s: The Legend of the Chaos God!!!! That's right. This is the big one. The magnum opus of Disney Adventures magazine. The 1994 five-part pseudo-crossover story between TaleSpin, Chip 'n Dale Rescue Rangers, Goof Troop, DuckTales, and Darkwing Duck! While scans of this five-parter are available online, this will be the first time that the story has ever been reprinted. Ever!

 

 

This amazing volume is set for release next year on June 22, 2021! Step right up and come on in, here's where the fun begins!

Non Powerline songs are taken out... but Stand Out and I 2 I are still around, right? Would be a crime if not.

I read the Justice Ducks 2 parter (first time I saw Neptunia or the episodes) and the five part crossover in... mini magazines before but I didn't buy them. I didn't realize they were rare.

From the five part, all I remember is possibly the Rescue Rangers on a waterfall or a river? Unless it was Darkwing. I just recall a water thing.

Yes. Both of those sequences are in there (and the Lester's Possum Park song for one panel, I forgot to mention that one before) since the actions of those sequences are actually part of the story.

 

Though, the strange thing is, between the three different versions I have, only in the Danish version are the lyrics to those songs included, while in the original French and UK English versions, Max, the Possum Posse, and Powerline all perform their songs onstage accompanied by musical notes to denote their singing but with no lyrics written on the pages. I guess we're just supposed to imagine the songs in our heads when reading those versions.

 

Time will tell if this new English version will include the lyrics to those songs or not.

Man I had the Justice Ducks graphic novel back in the day. Read it multiple times before I was able to buy the VHS of those eps. Some of the differences caught me off guard (in the show Bushroot chanting "kill Negaduck" still feels weird after reading "cream Negaduck)

But adding the Chaos God story elevates this to must buy!

What also excites me about this is the thought of these stories seeing a full-size release when "Just us Justice Ducks" and "Legend of the Chaos God" were only released in digest size.

 

Or, is that correct? Was the Cartoon Tales series also digest size like Disney Adventures and Disney's Colossal Comics Collection? Or was it bigger?

 

Either way, the adaptation of A Goofy Movie was full size, so it's just the other two that would be getting this treatment.

So, Cartoon Tales was full-sized. Good to know, thanks.

 

 

This means that only Legend of the Chaos God will be getting upsized in this release, which is still cool.

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.

Wow. It would be great if this was the beginning of a wider range of reprints from that era. Lot of great Disney comics in the 90s, and Disney comics today aren't the endless parade of reprinting everything forever that they once were.

I figure I'd ask here because it's Darkwing and not Duck Tales '17.

I'm catching up on the Darkwing comics there's a short scene in the issue VS Posey the vampire where Gosalyn and Launchpad were talking.

Both of them were thinking that they would inherit the mantle of Darkwing Duck when/if Drake Mallard can't do it anymore.

Did Launchpad ever voice the desire to be Darkwing in the show? I know he was Darkwing Decoy but did he want to BE Darkwing?

Also, wouldn't Gosalyn want carry on her own alter ego as Quivering Quack anyway?

It just seemed like a sort of sad idea, when one of them would have to be Darkwing when Drake can't.

Also, did Steelbeak use a booby trap briefcase in the show? Like, it has alligator teeth cuz of the leather? Cuz it looked like he killed a guy with it but they cut away from the scene.

Edit - never mind the alligator briefcase. I found it. It was a previous series Darkwing comic #10 reference, not in the show. The briefcase does contain an alligator and it probably killed the guy in question.

Huh. A Rescue Rangers spinoff.

 

The book's Amazon page also show a pic of a second book titled "The Mouse Watch Underwater".

Wow. It sounds more like Rescuers, but what a fascinating thing for them to suddenly do with this property nobody's supposed to touch. 

 

I wonder if it was all "you have to write this RR spinoff but you're not allowed to mention Chip or Dale or Rescue Rangers".

Doesn't seem like we're going to see much of the old characters involved. Seems like if anything we might get a scene or two with Gadget while we focus on the books new characters.
