Each part of a combiner is a complete toy in itself, so no, not really.

@  PlutoniumBoss : (03 October 2019 - 06:47 PM)

Aren't combiners technically BAFs?

@  Rycochet : (03 October 2019 - 02:16 PM)

The Anniversary Beast Wars figures had BAF parts over a decade ago, the minicons of RiD2 had BAF stuff too, heck, the Takara PVC line had Build A Figures back in the early 2000s.

@  Paladin : (03 October 2019 - 01:35 PM)

can't believe Build A Figures finally came to Transformers...

@  RichardT1977 : (03 October 2019 - 11:26 AM)

Originally Galoob made Micro Machines, but Hasbro bought Galoob.

@  Steevy Maximus : (03 October 2019 - 09:49 AM)

Hasbro owns the IP, but licensed it out to WCT. Hasbro owns Tonka, but hasn't actually made a legit Tonka product in years. Basic Fun (IIRC) is taking that over next year from the existing licensee

@  Benbot : (03 October 2019 - 07:09 AM)

I thought Hasbro made Micro Machines

@  Steevy Maximus : (02 October 2019 - 10:40 AM)

Jazzwares bought Wicked Cool Toys. So I guess Jazzwares is going to be making Micro Machines :p

Heard a joke once: Man goes to doctor. Says he's depressed. Says life seems harsh and cruel. Says he feels all alone in a threatening world where what lies ahead is vague and uncertain. Doctor says, "Treatment is simple. The great clown Pagliacci is in town tonight. Go and see him. That should pick you up." Man bursts into tears. Says, "But doctor...I am Pagliacci."

Yeah, totally agree since Cameron Monaghan has been able to show multiple versions of the Joker very well.

 

Recent Gotham trailer we just got Monday has me way more excited then this for sure.

I thought that this was pretty neat. I want to see more on this, to see where it it going. Is it going to be a long transformation across the film or is it going to actually show him as Joker doing his thing and his first run into batman?

This is set in the early 80s, so Bruce is still a kid and Thomas Wayne is featured.  I want to write this off on concept...but I'll be dipped if it doesn't look like a compelling film in its own right.

 

Again, DC has played with the idea of multiple Jokers, so maybe this is setting up a "legacy" that Batman, theoretically, could address later on?

Looks interesting, a more psychological take. I hope they don't make him too sympathetic, and go more for "all this bad stuff happened but that doesn't excuse what he does". We'll see.

Leaning a bit too hard into the Scorsese/"Taxi Driver" inspiration, isn't it?

 

Still, this looks more interesting than everything else DC is putting out.


Yep.

Having watched the trailer, I'm not impressed, the guy playing the Joker, just seems to lack a sense of charm that been present in the other verisons of Joker put to screen, I'll pass on this in cinemas at least. The main reason the Joker works so well is when he pitted against Batman, but I feel this is just a unneeded movie with a rather dull actor taking the role, besides we got a desent origin story for the Joker forming in Gotham (TV series) and the actors in that have been pretty good.

1) Gotham is beautiful garbage. It's a show that is objectively bad by almost every metric yet I'll still miss it when it ends.

 

2) We didn't t get a lot (any?) of Joker/Joker in the trailer so it's not really fair to judge it against performances that it is not.

My thoughts exactly. I'm not sure what yo make of it now. Except that i agree that i hope they don't make him sad and lonely and stuck in a dark world that makes his insanity somehow a sympathetic thing.

Well, er, the Scorcese and Fellini influences are interesting, at least.  I'm pretty anti-having-a-sympathetic-Joker, though, so he better be pretty damn deranged by the second or third act of this thing.


Fall of Cybertron will blow your mind. That is all.

I've been 100% onboard with this film ever since the Makeup test.

 

 

 

For me, the trailer was less "Taxi Driver" and more "Falling Down". There's an old saw of the Internet that as a kid you idolize Batman but as an adult you realize Joker makes more sense. I think that's pretty much the driving premise of the film.

 

EDIT: Second viewing, I catch the fact he's taking care of his mother who likely has Alzhemiers/Dementia. I figured out how they're going to turn the audience against him in the climax. Just like when Rob Zombie had Mike Meyers murder Danny Trejo....
