Ever notice Kath SOucie's Janine in the later episodes of Real Ghostbusters sounds like Tara Strong's Sari Sumdac?

@  Maximus Ambus : (28 September 2020 - 02:10 PM)

I wish they were more universal like Beast Wars, Animated or Prime and as professionally done,

@  Maximus Ambus : (28 September 2020 - 02:06 PM)

The Netflix shows are done for adults, the Generation toyline is for adults who grew up with G1.

@  Sabrblade : (28 September 2020 - 12:53 PM)

Who said it ever was?

@  -LittleAutob... : (28 September 2020 - 12:43 PM)

Whatever happened to WFC Earthrise being a kids show X'D

@  wonko the sane? : (28 September 2020 - 11:43 AM)

Cool, my last tablet couldn't run it, and I stopped caring by the time I got the new one. So thanks!

@  Otaku : (28 September 2020 - 11:27 AM)

There are crossover characters, but the amount and distribution... Marvel Vs Capcom this ain't.  If @wonko the sane? my bad!

@  Otaku : (28 September 2020 - 11:21 AM)

I've been playing for *checks account* 1002 days, 23 hours.  So, by 2021, it will have been three years.  I think it takes place in its own continuity, largely inspired by G1 but borrowing from other places.

@  Otaku : (28 September 2020 - 11:19 AM)

@wonko the sane? Can only speak for Earth Wars, but so few they're easy to forget.

@  wonko the sane? : (28 September 2020 - 07:39 AM)

Didn't they already do the across universes thing in that tablet game?

@  Demovere Xeno : (28 September 2020 - 05:30 AM)

Also, make the setting an amalgamation of different Transformers series, rather than based on a specific one. Bring in things like 'Sentinel Major' as the primo Autobot jerk, and sleek car mode Vehicons as the Decepticons' basic grunt.

@  Demovere Xeno : (28 September 2020 - 05:27 AM)

KT just needs to incorporate the vehicle modes into the combat system, like Platinum did for Devastation, so they're for more than just wheeling it across the battlefield. =P

@  Demovere Xeno : (28 September 2020 - 05:25 AM)

Transformers: Warriors of Cybertron! =D

@  Tm_Silverclaw : (28 September 2020 - 05:15 AM)

I want a Power Rangers Mosu. I would also take a Transformers Mosu. :D

@  TheMightyMol... : (28 September 2020 - 04:50 AM)

It even ended on a sequel hook.

@  Demovere Xeno : (28 September 2020 - 04:40 AM)

Man, I just want another Devastation game... =(

@  NotVeryKnightly : (28 September 2020 - 01:53 AM)

Aren't TFs way more varied than Joes, as far as they'd work in gameplay? Like, Omega Supreme is vastly different from Bumblebee.

@  unluckiness : (27 September 2020 - 10:16 PM)

Hell, ripoff Super Robot Wars withTFs

@  unluckiness : (27 September 2020 - 10:16 PM)

IDK they could make something like FF tactics or Fire Emblem ripoff with Robots and i'd buy it

@  Steevy Maximus : (27 September 2020 - 09:43 PM)

See, I feel GI Joe (with it's varied cast) is a better fit for a strategy game, where as Transformers feels more suited for a shooter.

@  Maruten : (27 September 2020 - 08:28 PM)

I might give them points for making a strategy game if it's actually a good strategy game.

@  wonko the sane? : (27 September 2020 - 07:48 PM)

I mean, points for making a strategy game instead of third person shooter, but: urrrrgggg. Cyberverse.

@  wonko the sane? : (27 September 2020 - 07:47 PM)

A transformers game for the switch? *checks* Urrrggg... cyberverse...

@  Steevy Maximus : (27 September 2020 - 06:28 PM)

October will be a big month for Hasbro fans: Zoids, GI Joe AND Transformers all have brand new console games. All on the Switch at that!

@  wonko the sane? : (27 September 2020 - 09:04 AM)

At least in animated he was more driven than just "loyal bootlick".

@  unluckiness : (27 September 2020 - 08:29 AM)

Oof, That's a huge downgrade

@  Maximus Ambus : (27 September 2020 - 02:35 AM)

After rewatching Animated Sound and Fury, in my head canon Titans Return Soundwave is that Soundwave.

@  wonko the sane? : (26 September 2020 - 04:09 PM)

On an unrelated note: I just got the BBTS email about kingdom pre-orders... and even the stuff I don't want I'm perfectly willing to get if it means I can have the rest of it.

@  wonko the sane? : (26 September 2020 - 04:08 PM)

It's digimon. So first one, then the other.

@  TheMightyMol... : (26 September 2020 - 12:53 PM)

50/50 odds, it's either a helicopter with limbs, or a scantily-clad human with heli blades on their back. If female, 90% odds on the second one.

@  NotVeryKnightly : (26 September 2020 - 12:39 PM)

I read that as "Helicoptermon" and wondered what kind of Digimon that was.

@  Bass X0 : (26 September 2020 - 12:35 PM)

Helicopter-mom, transform!

@  Maximus Ambus : (25 September 2020 - 11:58 PM)

Aw I scratched the hood of my 35th anniversary Bluestreak. Fortunately he's in robot mode a lot.

No decoration could improve the wall more than Knockout himself

@  TheMightyMol... : (25 September 2020 - 05:04 PM)

And then Knockout was in the wall again.

@  Sabrblade : (24 September 2020 - 12:53 PM)

Knockout: "Ooh, sorry, Lord Megatron. The correct word was... 'Decepticon'."

@  -LittleAutob... : (24 September 2020 - 11:15 AM)

Knockout: *while doing a crossword puzzle* Lord Megatron, whats a ten letter word for disappointment? | Megatron: ...... Starscream.

@  wonko the sane? : (23 September 2020 - 11:19 AM)

Not really in any order, but prepare yourself for the most what the hell list, given my weird tastes.

 

Getting the Miyazaki ones out of the way

Spirited Away

Howl's Moving Castle

Kiki's Delivery Service

The Cat Returns (Well not him, but same studio)

 

They were 11

Your Name

A Silent Voice

Sailor Moon S the movie

Tench Movie 2 Daughter of Darkness

Interstellar 5555

Redline

The Girl Who Leapt Through Time

Summer Wars

Kimagure Orange Road: Summer's Beginning

The History of Trunks (I think this can count as a movie)

Robot Carnival

Galerians Rion

Bleach Movie 1: Memories of Nobody

 

That's all I can think of off the top of my head. I guess I can give an honorable Mention to "Satellite Girl and Milk Cow" It's not a GOOD movie, but it's WTF factor is great.

 

I know most people consider Princess Monoke to be the best Miyazaki film, but I've always just thought it was okay.

 

Everyone loves Akira, but I honestly hated the film when I first saw it. However to be fair I saw it possibly edited on the Sci Fi Channel when they did anime on Saturday Mornings back when I was in High school, which was about 20 years ago, so I should probably give it another chance.

I see Your Name has already been mentioned, that was one I really enjoyed. I also liked Summer Wars as well.

I want to give a shout out for the Kara no Kyoukai movie series. I really enjoyed those, though I'm kind of a Type-Moon nerd.

Highlander: The Search for Vengeance is one of my favs along with Batman: Ninja, there is also Bleach the Movie 2: Diamond Dust Rebellion plus Metropolis that I like.

 

Spritted Away, I've seen, while its nicely animated, I find the story kind of, meh, just not something I really like, it kind of feels as if it should of been a short series instead of just a movie, to fully grasp the world its set in along with its characters

My favorite is Galaxy Express 999. It's got space pirates, a mechanized empire, an intergalactic journey about love, revenge, humanity, and dreams. It's from '79 so the designs are decidedly retro and it's not as shiny and slick as newer productions but I think that just gives it more character. Also has one of my favoritest endings, it sticks with me every time I watch it.

 

Highlander: The Search for Vengeance is one of my favs

 

Hell yeah. I'd put that as the best Highlander movie after the first one. I know that's not a high bar, but still. I just wish the villain hadn't worn suspenders for the final fight. No one's threatening in suspenders.

 

 

Nausicaa of the Valley of the Wind

 

My favorite Miyazaki film. It's hard to go wrong with airships, 80's synth, and Patrick Stewart & Mark Hamill.

 

 

Street Fighter: The Movie

 

I legitimately adore the live action one, but it's still nice to have a decent serious one. I'd actually say this is one of the better video game adaptations in general, not just anime. Another low bar, I know.

 

 

Blade of the Phantom Master

 

So underrated, it's too bad there weren't more or a series because Munsu is such a delightful bastard of an anti-hero.

 

 

Taro the Dragon Boy

 

A childhood favorite. Another one from the '70s but I love the focus on Japanese mythology and the visual style that's similar to classic water paintings.

Don't you mean Street Fighter 2 the animated movie? Street Fighter the movie is live action thou very losely based on the video game series. Street Fighter 2 the animated movie is another fav of mine.

 

Another movie, I do like is X also known as X 1999, its a story about the end of the world, or rather the battles to decide the fate of the world, not much in the way of character development but plenty of action, destruction and the ending is, well tragic, worth watching, its a loose adaption of the manga but not cannon to it.

I'm sure you seen Princess Monononoke, Totoro, Nausicaa, Castle in the Sky, Kiki's Delivery Service, Howl's Moving Castle etc.

 

And since you like Highlander animated movie, seen Ninja Scroll, Wicked City and Vampire Hunter D Bloodlust from same director?
