Dunno what we'd call a Megatron combiner, we almost got a Megastator in IDW but nothing in Combiner Wars.

@  Paladin : (18 August 2019 - 01:30 PM)

somehow read that as "Megachronic." wonder if Decepticons get the munchies...

@  TheMightyMol... : (18 August 2019 - 11:30 AM)

Skywarp can barely form a coherent sentence half the time.

@  Maximus Ambus : (18 August 2019 - 11:24 AM)

If Cyclonus combines into Galvatronus, does Skywarp form Megatronic?

@  Pennpenn : (18 August 2019 - 09:12 AM)

There's something weird about starting to type Good Omens into a media store's search bar and having it come up with Queen's greatest hits compliations.

@  Tm_Silverclaw : (18 August 2019 - 12:07 AM)

Well then they need to re-release Vector Prime. :D Of course I would accept Vector Prime Headmaster with Alpha Trion as the head.

@  unluckiness : (18 August 2019 - 12:05 AM)

That said, the bendy sword is ridiculous.

@  unluckiness : (18 August 2019 - 12:05 AM)

I dunno, the old one is still pretty good by modern standards and the clunkiness is somewhat in-character.

@  Tm_Silverclaw : (17 August 2019 - 08:37 PM)

We need a new vector prime

@  Paladin : (17 August 2019 - 03:59 PM)

just don't leave Cybertron Vector Prime out in the sun or his wings will melt.

@  SHIELD Agent 47 : (17 August 2019 - 03:17 PM)

@Nevermore Duly noted.

@  Rycochet : (17 August 2019 - 02:12 PM)

I have three Cybertron Vector Primes, wouldn't throw them around though. I love that design too much,

@  TheMightyMol... : (17 August 2019 - 02:03 PM)

I'm just picturing someone throwing a pile of Vector Prime toys around. I don't know why.

@  Rycochet : (17 August 2019 - 01:42 PM)

Multi Vector Assault mode is what they go into when they think anyone's even slightly infringing on their IP.

@  Ashley : (17 August 2019 - 02:30 AM)

They MIGHT have done it for Star Trek Online ships, but even if they have that'd be a fairly specific category.

@  Tieria Prime : (17 August 2019 - 02:11 AM)

Hi friends

@  Nevermore : (17 August 2019 - 02:05 AM)

So only if Viacom/Paramount has actively trademarked the term "multi-vector assault mode", offered goods or services under that name and has been offering those goods and services in recent years, Hasbro cannot offer goods or services under that name in the same category.

@  Nevermore : (17 August 2019 - 02:04 AM)

And they need to be consistently used on top of that.

@  Nevermore : (17 August 2019 - 02:03 AM)

Even if they are trademarked.

@  Nevermore : (17 August 2019 - 02:02 AM)

Words and terms used in dialogue shouldn't be affected.

@  Nevermore : (17 August 2019 - 02:02 AM)

Also, the trademarks only apply in commerce. You use them to identify goods and services.

@  Ashley : (16 August 2019 - 11:55 PM)

Yeah, you also need to apply for it. They might've never bothered to trademark that.

@  NotVeryKnightly : (16 August 2019 - 08:37 PM)

Trademark affects titles and product names, not every word in writing. For example, DC called their character "Captain Marvel" as recently as 2014.

@  SHIELD Agent 47 : (16 August 2019 - 08:30 PM)

You missed my point. I was addressing the usage of the phrase in dialogue. Hence the quotation marks.

@  Pennpenn : (16 August 2019 - 08:00 PM)

Well, they can anyway, they might just not be able to call it that...

@  SHIELD Agent 47 : (16 August 2019 - 06:54 PM)

It would be awesome for Transformers to have the likes of Overlord and Sky Lynx "engage multi-vector assault mode!"

@  SHIELD Agent 47 : (16 August 2019 - 06:53 PM)

It is a shame that "multi-vector assault mode" is probably trademarked for Star Trek.

@  unluckiness : (15 August 2019 - 10:54 PM)

Only if they manage to boomer-proof it

@  RichardT1977 : (15 August 2019 - 08:16 PM)

(and would that really be a bad thing?)

@  RichardT1977 : (15 August 2019 - 08:16 PM)

Wouldn't a cybernetic singularity actually remove one or more of the top levels of Maslow's hierarchy?

@  Steevy Maximus : (15 August 2019 - 07:40 PM)

Tomy made some strange selections on their first wave of Tomica releases for the US

@  TheMightyMol... : (15 August 2019 - 06:26 PM)

Resistance is futile.

@  wonko the sane? : (15 August 2019 - 06:20 PM)

I would be down for a nice cybernetic singularity if it meant we could actually reach the top of maslow's hierarchy.

@  Ashley : (15 August 2019 - 05:44 PM)

I'm pretty sure the origin of the villains in GaoGaiGar was a computer being told to reduce the stress of the population and it's answer was to assimilate everyone.

@  Maximus Ambus : (15 August 2019 - 01:53 PM)

Executions then followed by nano reanimation then cryonic suspension until everyone you know is deactivated for good so you can build happiness in a future society.

@  wonko the sane? : (15 August 2019 - 01:47 PM)

As opposed to the ones that lie already? As a civilization: we're emotional and socially broken. Might as well have the society that at least wants us to be "happy".

@  RichardT1977 : (15 August 2019 - 11:48 AM)

Or you'd have a lot of people lying about their emotional state to avoid being executed.

@  wonko the sane? : (15 August 2019 - 11:18 AM)

That would actually be a massive step up: since there's a LOT of stuff needed to quantify happiness, and it could only be an improvement over the existing governments which actually don't care if you live or die, never mind if you're "happy".

@  RichardT1977 : (15 August 2019 - 10:02 AM)

Happiness is mandatory, citizen. Failure to be happy is treason. Have a nice daycycle!

@  unluckiness : (15 August 2019 - 01:46 AM)

Maslow's hierarchy of needs

@  MrBlud : (14 August 2019 - 09:46 PM)

Humanity is pretty forgiving if you take care of its basic needs. "Freedom" and "Privacy" don't have much hold when you can't afford food, shelter, or medicine.

@  TheMightyMol... : (14 August 2019 - 03:29 PM)

Something something peace through tyranny.

@  Maximus Ambus : (14 August 2019 - 02:43 PM)

You probably will have a house, AI overseers will crack down on stress, poverty, homelessness and human administration.

@  Rycochet : (14 August 2019 - 02:36 PM)

The bad news is they'll probab;y be made and operated by Amazon so will record every single thing you do and transmit it to their datacenters so theycan have human operators sift through it and laugh at footage of you dancing in your socks or having intercourse.

@  NotVeryKnightly : (14 August 2019 - 02:32 PM)

What if I don't have a house by then?

@  wonko the sane? : (14 August 2019 - 02:32 PM)

If the robot will do the cleaning, I don't care if it's mandatory. I'm sick of moping floors.

@  Maximus Ambus : (14 August 2019 - 02:05 PM)

humanoid service robots, one for every house in the west. ETA: 2050. household robots will be mandatory.

@  Rycochet : (14 August 2019 - 02:03 PM)

All I know is it'd be tragic if those evil robots win. I know she can beat them.

@  TheMightyMol... : (14 August 2019 - 01:53 PM)

Big ones? Small ones? Ones as big as your head?

@  Rycochet : (14 August 2019 - 12:22 PM)

The robots are pink. Someone call Yoshimi!

Any folks here watching this? The pilot was made available in YouTube but now it's continuing, though is it just a mini? Feels like Over the Garden Wall, where it would end. But then it wouldn't be an Infinity Train.

I have a feeling that she's freezing to death and just hallucinating. If that's the case though, that seems like a cheat.

I don't know what the numbers mean but that other passenger being disintegrated means serious business.

I was wondering why I never saw that one after seeing teaser trailers a loooong time ago. Will have to check it out sometime, thanks.

Er, YouTube? Though saw it in other channels, er.

I'm midway and I'm still reminded of that Adventure Time episode where he's trapped in an endless train dungeon. Especially with the ep 5 thing.

Over the Garden Wall was moments before death but this is possibly Silent Hill? She has unresolved issues that's she's blocking out with puzzles.

One-One is her emotions, I'm fairly sure. The King is her support. The number... I'm still not sure.

Ugh, just tried searching YT, and it's a mess.  Lots of part 1's in random order, occasional part 2's, interspersed with videos of people watching episodes.  If there's a coherent playlist in a useful order, it's not showing up.  I'll wait for it to get on air or at least finish so I can find a compilation video of all the parts.

I saw it... in 2 minute increments. But episode 1 was hard to find.

I'm down to the last two eps, final day. The Chrome mirror ep was great but is it a filler puzzle? Then suddenly what the F on the 8th ep. That was just too much. They better the hell fix it up, gosh dang!

Saw the last eps.

Holy cow, I got a lot of things wrong. I think I got a certain theme right though.

It's a little more satisfying that Above the Garden Wall but I realize that I WANT more of the puzzle filler eps. The plot is fine but, during that part when she was running through all the weird, imaginative cars, that was great and I want more of that.

Near end, look at the wall. What do(n't) you see? Freaky as hell.

Was the name 'Infinity Train' mentioned even once in the show?

The ride isn't over. The ride ISN'T over.

I just finished it myself and I really enjoyed it.

 

My only complaint is that, in making a mostly complete and self-contained story, it (seemingly) didn't leave much to explore in further seasons about the train itself which, unlike the name, was far from 'infinite'. I really wished they'd stuck to Tulip's journey and left the train as a bigger mystery, especially since ever since I watched the pilot, I got a really big "Cube" vibe from it.

 

Still, a second season has already been announced and there's still a lot about the show's universe we know nothing about. Let's hope it doesn't take 3 years this time!

I thought of Cube too, when the car first did that thing.

We still don't know how people are chosen so I'm thinking it's still a Silent Hill thing going on.

But I get why Tulip is left at a loss at the end. It would carry over to Season 2, so they can use her without actually using her.

Finally saw it (the whole thing is on watchcartoonsonline for us outside The Country).

I loved that it resolved as a self-contained story, but there is still plenty to explore.

Did you guys realize that was Captain Janeway playing the Cat?!?

Am not Trek versed so I didn't know. You think the cat will be back? I know I'd like to see Atticus back.

Guess it's ok to spoil but Tulip is missing her reflection! She's a vampire now! Those soul sucking roaches got her somehow!

Kidding. But really, I hope she stays where she is. Mirror Tulip (Pilut?) could carry on in her stead, at least voice actress wise, just to keep continuity.

I wonder if the 'infinity' in the train means you get to stay there forever but you don't age? You have all the time in the world to deal with your Silent Hill issues. Which is a little horrifying if you can't face them...

I don't know that she aged. She just, er, might have been haggard? It's just the rate of decor she has.

It would have been AWFUL if her mom thought she was with her dad and her dad thought she was with her mom and nobody missed her!
