my walmart is acting true to form. as soon as mirage arrives from amazon, my walmart gets his entire wave in after months of having wave 1 clogging the pegs....

@  Nevermore : (16 October 2019 - 05:18 PM)

I stirred up some trouble at work, complained about the blatant neglect of employee safety. Was asked to take photos and write down the locations so the matter could be properly escalated. Made me feel a little better.

I got stabbed in the eyelid by a mudwasp, pulled down a tree, and then got ice cream. You know, all told: not a bad day.

What's your favorite Paleolithic megafauna?

@  TM2-Megatron : (14 October 2019 - 10:06 PM)

Together with the Rhino G1 sets, probably the most expensive DVDs I ever bought

@  TM2-Megatron : (14 October 2019 - 10:01 PM)

I've still got the age-old Rhino sets

@  Telly : (14 October 2019 - 09:09 PM)

i didnt find that at any of the ones around here, so i had to settle for seasons 1 and 2 of duckman for $3

@  Steevy Maximus : (14 October 2019 - 07:45 PM)

Heck, I got the season 2/3 set for $3 (?) from a Dollar General discount bin :p

@  TM2-Megatron : (14 October 2019 - 07:29 PM)

The series is pretty cheap on DVD, too, which at least will work internet or no. The complete series set seems to be OOP, but there's a Season 1 set as well as a combined 2 & 3 set.

@  wonko the sane? : (14 October 2019 - 06:10 PM)

Woot! Beast wars!

@  Steevy Maximus : (14 October 2019 - 06:08 PM)

@  Rycochet : (14 October 2019 - 01:51 PM)

He dubbed the peoples that saw him as bad news cannibals and savages before enslaving and wiping them out too.

@  wonko the sane? : (14 October 2019 - 01:40 PM)

And if they had been unfriendly: he would have simply slaughtered them with diseases they couldn't fight, and technology they couldn't match until they as a people did not exist. There's something about european backgrounds that drive us to exploit.

@  Rycochet : (14 October 2019 - 11:02 AM)

He described the peoples he encountered as some of the most friendly and giving in the world, so naturally, he ate all their food, enslaved them and put them to work looking for gold that did not exist, until they as a people did not exist.

@  Paladin : (14 October 2019 - 09:57 AM)

He said the world was round-o! (He said the world was round-o!) He said it could be found-o! (He said it could be found-o!) That hypothetical, calculated, son-of-a-gun, Columbo! (That hypothetical, calculated, son-of-a-gun, Columbo!)

In the year 1492, Columbus gave us the day off skoo

@  Noideaforaname : (14 October 2019 - 08:59 AM)

How often do people actually celebrate Columbus or the Pilgrims? Usually it just feels like celebrating the first break in the school year and a nice dinner with the family.

Ohhh good one

@  Bass X0 : (07 October 2019 - 07:39 AM)

I now want a Decepticon shark called Megalotron.

@  TriBlurr : (06 October 2019 - 05:47 PM)

Gives them time to screw up the color of his hands. :p

@  TheMightyMol... : (06 October 2019 - 12:33 PM)

His bulk is too great to teleport across such distances.

@  Sabrblade : (06 October 2019 - 11:09 AM)

Cuz it'll take that long to mass produce.

@  Darth Gonzo : (06 October 2019 - 10:47 AM)

Why is Unicron coming in 2021 and not 2020?

Gotcha, I didn't realize they were an item.

 

Sadly this'll succeed the same way Sharknado succeeded. It's a pile of shit, and people will watch it and howl "That's a pile of shit! Hahahahahahaha!".

The same people who thought Archie needed a dark twist.
You mean the dude who got in legal trouble for doing 3rd party Archie, and then became in charge of the legit property?

Yes, that's a 100% true story. Google it.

Uh, what? Who? How? (What do I Google, hehe)

I just feel like we're entering a new stage of what brand identity is and can be used for. Like, they got the rights to this property so they could claim "authenticity", and also maybe some marginal name recognition. That was a better trade than just making something up. It's the same kind of weird that weird brand Twitter was. It's a retro ephemera eBay item YouTube unboxing and review, but the product being reviewed is the movie rights to The Banana Splits.

It is actually kind of interesting. There have always been parodies or homages to these types of things in the horror genre, but obviously no one is going to allow their property to be used like this. Chuck E Cheese is not going on a murder spree.

 

Snagging the rights to this allows them to do it with an existing, albeit dormant, property vs inventing yet another "Random creepy mascot" idea.

The worst part is we already know how it ends.

Did I ever tell you about the time Brasky went hunting? Brasky decides hes going to hunt down all four of the Banana Splits. He stalks and kills every one of them with a machette. They all begged for their lives except Fleagle.

For what its worth, I kinda respect that they made the costumes look like the old show rather then trying to update them or make them CGI or something.

What bothers me is making them animatronic. They've always been guys in suits. Even in the film it's obviously guys in suits. Yet there's clear FNaF vibes and they made them animatronic.

 

If you want to do a FNaF movie, then do a FNaF movie. Don't legally buy the rights to another property then retroactively change fundamental things about said property.

 

 

Also does this mean in 40 years we'll get a gritty, hard edged psychological thriller involving the Wiggles?

They are, its being directed and produced by Chris Columbus, but is currently in development hell it seems.
 

 

In February 2018, it was announced that Chris Columbus would direct and write the film, besides producing it alongside Blum and Cawthon.[117] In August 2018, Cawthon announced that the first draft of the movie's script, which involves only the events of the first game, was completed, and that there may be a second and third movie after.[118] In the same month, Blum wrote on Twitter that the movie was aiming for a 2020 release.[119] In November, Cawthon announced that the current script for the film has been scrapped, which will contribute to a further delay to the film.[120]

I guess the thing that bugs me is that an existing property some people vaguely remember is so fundamentally different a thing from inventing random creepy mascots. I'm suspicious of what that actually means.

One of my friends is really bothered by this film's existence because apparently the Banana Splits had some kind of short in front of a Scooby Doo movie his kids watched, and his kids are all 7 and under. So he's worried that there's possibly a unintended audience for this work. Yeah, the Banana Splits are obscure, but they aren't unknown.

The biggest thing the Banana Splits have done in the past 40+ years was that comic crossover with the Suicide Squad.

Yes, thats a thing.

They are very much unknown. Especially to the average person under the age of 60.
