Make his fur a red and black flannel pattern

@  wonko the sane? : (18 February 2019 - 09:10 PM)

Bonus points if you can work in a red and black flannel pattern on his chest plate.

@  wonko the sane? : (18 February 2019 - 09:09 PM)

Might as well make it cliched. Lumberjack moose male and aristocratic deer female.

@  TriBlurr : (18 February 2019 - 08:16 PM)

Or their aristocratic deer.

@  TriBlurr : (18 February 2019 - 08:10 PM)

i just checked my past tfsource orders, and theres no sales tax charge

@  Arazyr : (18 February 2019 - 11:16 AM)

They haven't (yet, at least) on the stuff I currently have in my Stack. Haven't had them ship anything for a while, though, so I don't know if they will when I do...

@  Benbot : (18 February 2019 - 11:04 AM)

Does TFSource charge sales tax?

@  wonko the sane? : (18 February 2019 - 09:47 AM)

That's because, once upon a time, the people whom owned the animals weren't the people whom butchered them. So the pig was owned by a saxon who spoke english, but butchered by a french speaker. So a pig got cut up into PORC chops.

@  PlutoniumBoss : (18 February 2019 - 01:28 AM)

In that case, I don't see anything wrong with English speakers calling it what it is in English. Even though we technically use the French words for what comes out of it. "Beef", "pork"...

@  Bass X0 : (17 February 2019 - 02:04 PM)

I’d like a Siege Thundercracker who has his regular blue colors Cybertronian jet mode which transforms into a robot mode with his Action Master colors. Looks like it could be possible.

@  Paladin : (17 February 2019 - 11:57 AM)

The cow was slaughtered in the abattoir.

@  wonko the sane? : (17 February 2019 - 08:53 AM)

It's not a pretty name: abattoir is literally just the french word for slaughterhouse.

@  PlutoniumBoss : (17 February 2019 - 08:46 AM)

Giving it a pretty name won't make it a pretty place.

@  SHIELD Agent 47 : (17 February 2019 - 02:45 AM)

I do believe there is an aphorism about the U.S.A. and yogurt being different because after 200 years the latter will have a culture.

@  Maruten : (16 February 2019 - 11:30 PM)

There's another word for "abattoir"?! Honestly you people, "slaughterhouse" is a bit on the nose.

@  SHIELD Agent 47 : (16 February 2019 - 10:09 PM)

I learned this week that the French-style term abattoir is prevalent in the UK/Commonwealth in place of where U.S.-American Anglophones would say "slaughterhouse". Fascinating.

@  wonko the sane? : (16 February 2019 - 07:31 AM)

Haven't given it to him yet. Not sure when I will, but soon. Wah Wah is what he calls any vehicle with a siren, and the little bugger just LOVES firetrucks. So I got him a rescue bot heatwave.

Is Verbesserschlimmerung a change that was intented to make things worse but made them better instead?

@  wonko the sane? : (13 February 2019 - 07:35 AM)

We have a similar word in english "government".

@  Nevermore : (13 February 2019 - 06:05 AM)

The meaning of this word is: A change that was intended as an improvement but ended up making things worse.

@  Nevermore : (13 February 2019 - 06:04 AM)

It's a portmanteau of "Verbesserung", which means "improvement", and "Verschlimmerung", which means "worsening".

@  Nevermore : (13 February 2019 - 06:04 AM)

Your new German word for today: Verschlimmbesserung.

@  TM2-Megatron : (12 February 2019 - 02:17 PM)

Fortunately it's been long enough now that the possibility exists another label like Shout Factory or Arrow could pick it up and give it an updated release.

@  TM2-Megatron : (12 February 2019 - 02:16 PM)

It's the same with their Dawn of the Dead blu-ray, and several others

@  TM2-Megatron : (12 February 2019 - 02:11 PM)

In Volcano's case it isn't so much a case just of amazon or eBay sellers... it looks like rather than releasing it directly, Fox licensed it out to Starz/Anchor Bay, and it's subsequently gone out of print

@  SHIELD Agent 47 : (12 February 2019 - 01:28 PM)

There's Amazon sellers for you.

@  Telly : (12 February 2019 - 12:49 PM)

thought about buying volcano on bluray last night, until i saw the price on amazon: $135. the used ones arent much cheaper at $90. i know the 3p sellers can set any price they want, but come on. $90-$135 for a 20 year old movie that was only so-so?

@  unluckiness : (12 February 2019 - 05:12 AM)

GOt my hopes up there for a bit. Last I heard it was nebulously in 2019.

...okay, there's so much to enjoy about this, but I have a very hard time hearing Maurice LaMarche as Vincent Van Ghoul. He sounds too much like the Brain in that clip for me.

 

Maurice LaMarche is a lot of wonderful things but there will only ever be ONE Vincent Price.

 

 

I knew the minute I said he "did a passable job," I knew that some would disagree.

The point is, we can't possibly get Vincent Price to do it. He's gone. If we HAVE to have a substitute, this guy seems as up to the task as anyone.

Yeah, like... something something Orson Welles, right? 

 

Given that is is a certainty that Vincent Price won't accept the gig, there aren't a lot of names higher on the wish list when it comes to Vincent Price substitutes.

 

Also you can hardly go wrong with any Scooby show. I've been in love with the franchise since like day 1, and basically everything they've done has had at least some merit. Initially I steered clear of Be Cool because uuuuuugly, but eventually I gave it a chance and it really won me over. It's hilarious. 

 

But I doubt that Mystery Inc will ever be topped.

I am SO stoked for this, Back in the day this was my favorite Scooby Doo series. 

I turned off the Trailer when I saw Vincent Van Ghoul apear in the crystal ball, "I don't need to see any more, I'm Sold... I'M SOLD!!!"

 

I dug out my DVD set of the series and started watching episodes last night, A lot of the episodes I havent seen since they aired.

Does look pretty cool as a conclusion to that series. Sadly I think my parents shied us away from that series due to the demons and occult stuff involved :D I'll have to find a way to watch it.

Not to Hijack the thread but I was on Wikipedia looking info up on this and other Scoooby series when a new "Scooby Doo and Guess Who?" series popped up. Sounds like a new version of the old "New Scooby Doo Movies" formula bringing in a guest star each episode. Got the old favorite like Batman (credited as Kevin Conroy this time :love), as well as fellow JL members Flash, Wonder Woman. Sherlock Holmes, and celebity stars like Sia, Mark Hamil, Neil deGrasse Tyson, Bill Nye and some others. But the one that got me was Steve Urkel? What deal with the devil did they offer Jaleel to do this?

Yeah 13 Ghosts was... not as cool as I thought it was when I was a kid. I convinced myself it was cool because it was a limited series with a distinct concept from other Scooby shows. But in hindsight? Nah I just liked the wicked-cool intro. BUT STILL, while it's not a particularly good cartoon it was still a distinct Scooby series so I'm glad there's a movie using ideas from it.
Woooo!

Incidentally, how many times have they "finally encountered real ghosts" now?

The 80's was when they were trying to do something different with a stale formula. So we got stuff with real creatures. 13 ghosts, Reluctant Werewolf, Ghoul School, and Boo Brothers all from the 'Red Shirt' era (referring to Shaggy not wearing green) was stuff with them  encountering actualy ghosts, monsters, and such. Rather then the 476th guy in a mask. Which the concept also got revisited later on in the late 90's with Zombie Island, Witch's Ghost, and Alien Invaders also all having some real Supernatural creatures in them.

I loved 13 Ghosts when it aired, but truth be told it hasn't aged at all well.  Of the new movies I think Zombie Island is the best-but Mystery Inc. tops all of it, although you are correct, the art style...takes some getting used to.  So much so that I didn't watch when it first aired; I found out the insanity they were doing when I caught one of the final episodes later and had to go back to see how they got from Point A to Point square root of negative Pi.

Zombie island is my favourte, what makes it good, is the songs that play, of course there is only one king to those songs:

The execution of said spoiler'd character was quite clearly implied, just happening off screen, because even with what they did get away doing on that show, visibly murdering an established semi-regular probably would have been frowned upon.
