Well of course. Your spot now has your body heat in it. That's what the cat really desires.

@  TM2-Megatron : (03 December 2020 - 12:23 PM)

The pictures when you google that are adorable, but unfortunately my cat hates cat-sized beds. He does like getting in the way on human-sized beds, chairs and sofas, though. If you get up, watch out, 'cuz your spot will be gone when you return.

@  wonko the sane? : (03 December 2020 - 09:01 AM)

I learned that the famed ikea cat bed actually IS available in canada, but they called it a doll bed up here for some reason.

*good week

@  Steevy Maximus : (02 December 2020 - 05:35 PM)

It's been a good work for The Hunt: got Netflix Bumblebee (suck it Walmart!) and stopped at Walgreens and found a lone Bluestreak. I'm pretty much done until new stuff rolls out in February

@  tigerhawk : (02 December 2020 - 03:53 PM)

There's some fab fandubs of comic scenes on Youtube, it's MTMTE/LL mostly but there's some great stuff such as Tarn learning of Megatron's defection and Megatron talking to Ravage.

@  Steevy Maximus : (30 November 2020 - 09:31 PM)

Wonderful audio separation and balance.

@  Steevy Maximus : (30 November 2020 - 09:29 PM)

For Transformers The Movie 86

@  Steevy Maximus : (30 November 2020 - 09:28 PM)

I will say, the blu ray remaster, especially the audio is pretty spot on. Watching it on Apple TV has been enlightening.

I do not overly care for the Bad Batch, but it will be interesting to see what the animated series will bring to the table.

@  SHIELD Agent 47 : (30 November 2020 - 08:59 PM)

Alpha, Delta Squad, Omega Squad, and the Muunilinst 10 are quite the contrast to what we have at present in Disney canon.

@  SHIELD Agent 47 : (30 November 2020 - 08:57 PM)

Who else here read the pre-2008 Clone Commandos and ARC Troopers back in the day?

@  tigerhawk : (30 November 2020 - 05:04 PM)

Monoliths in Utah and Romania.

@  Sabrblade : (29 November 2020 - 05:11 PM)

Also, the face of the black redeco is painted gray.

@  Sabrblade : (29 November 2020 - 05:09 PM)

To be a little fair, the original was also lacking in more detailed color. The Telemocha Series figure fixed that.

@  TheMightyMol... : (29 November 2020 - 05:05 PM)

The unpainted face and all the greys make that look like a knockoff.

@  Sabrblade : (29 November 2020 - 05:01 PM)

One could headcanon this one as such.

Decided to stick with the main cast from 2007 and a few assorted ones here and there.

I said I wouldn't buy a lot, now I have seven. And at least three might be on the culling pile.

That's KIND-OF what I consider the Throne of the Primes Primal to be...

@  wonko the sane? : (25 November 2020 - 11:16 AM)

I would buy the hell out a nemesis primal...

@  Bass X0 : (25 November 2020 - 11:15 AM)

I'm surprised there's not been a Nemesis Primal given all the Nemesis Primes.

@  unluckiness : (23 November 2020 - 03:17 AM)

The real Drifts were the Windblades we made along the way

@  PlutoniumBoss : (23 November 2020 - 02:25 AM)

Drift-kun 2 Electric Boobylube

@  ▲ndrusi : (22 November 2020 - 11:36 PM)

I'm pretty sure Drift 2 was Empire of Stone.

@  Sabrblade : (22 November 2020 - 10:06 PM)

I thought people said Prime Wheeljack was Drift 2.

@  tigerhawk : (22 November 2020 - 03:51 PM)

Windblade was Drift.2.

@  TheMightyMol... : (22 November 2020 - 02:44 PM)

Drift with boobs.

@  Rycochet : (22 November 2020 - 11:50 AM)

I can't imagine a live action movie version of Windblade being all that different from Drift. Not my thing, but not the worst thing I've ever seen.

@  Bass X0 : (22 November 2020 - 09:54 AM)

The thought of Movie aesthetic Windblade makes me feel sick.

@  NotVeryKnightly : (22 November 2020 - 08:47 AM)

Though, the fact that Japanese people would pay for Windblade toys in the $30-40 range doesn't mean they'd pay however much MPs are going for now.

@  NotVeryKnightly : (22 November 2020 - 08:44 AM)

Back when I made a habit of checking Mandarake for pre-owned TFs, Windblade's toys went for surprisingly high prices. By which I mean not lower than the original price.

@  tigerhawk : (22 November 2020 - 08:15 AM)

If she's in the next movie you might get her.

@  unluckiness : (22 November 2020 - 07:58 AM)

Japan didn't get most of the IDW comics and are the target market for MP. They basically know windblade from a few crappy pack-in comics and a show that wasn't particularly popular there. Unless they start cranking out Cyberverse MPs, it's not very likely.

@  TheMightyMol... : (22 November 2020 - 04:24 AM)

Again, depends if she's popular enough in Japan to warrant it. Our view of which characters are popular is not the same as Takara's.

It started off with Don getting shot and Raph getting his face burned off. I mean, I knew these things happened eventually... but that's how it STARTS! Dang! Just...dang!


This sounds like the TMNT from Image. Frank Fosco is the artist? Lady Shredder? Leo loses a hand? A villain named Komodo King?

I haven't seen season 2 of Rise yet but I looked at a video of the final fight with Shredder.

The animators said they shoved a bunch of anime references there but I only recognize Gurren Lagan for the obvious drill.

What's the reference from when Leo does the finger signs?

The double-peace/victory signs I don't think are necessarily specific to any one anime.  It's a pretty common gesture.  Raph's clone technique is of course highly reminiscent of the Shadow Clone Jutsu technique in Naruto, especially how the protagonist himself uses it (and his finishing strike from below seems very similar to Naruto's sneak attack on Neji in the Chunin Exams).  I feel like some of Leo's sword techniques are things I should recognize, but a specific reference isn't coming to mind.  Sword in the mouth might be Zoro from One Piece.

 

As for the drill thing, I think possibly we're one degree of separation from Gurren Lagann.  Drill on the end of a giant hammer, in particular, was done at the end of Mahou Shoujo Lyrical Nanoha: StrikerS, executed by Vita and her hammer weapon, Graf Eisen.  But that was likely a Gurren Lagann reference, because Graf Eisen was voiced by Tetsuya Kakihara aka Simon from GL.

 

April's sequence felt very reminiscent of the "Worthy" Cap scene from Avengers: Endgame, constantly bouncing her weapon around to attack rapidly and from unpredictable angles.

 

[edit] Watched a longer video of the full fight, and there's definitely more Gurren Lagann there.  Hamato Yoshi throws a punch very reminiscent of "let me see you grit those teeth", and Shredder puts up a multi-drill defense against the final attack that's very similar to the final fencing match between the Tengen Toppa Gurren Lagann and the Granzamboa.

It's a peace/victory sign? Hard to tell cuz the turtles only have three fingers. I assumed the pose was something people might recognize at once or something.

A comment in the vid called that spirit thing with April's attack as a Stand from JoJo's Bizarre Adventure but I don't think I've seen a Stand behave that way or else I've forgotten. Possibly Jotaro being carried around by Star Platinum somehow, I dunno.

Yeah, in practice, the Stands typically manifest as entirely separate entities, rather than anchored to the Stand User's back like Karai (so says the dialogue, I have no idea what the context here is for that connection/alliance) is here.  However, they're often depicted in a similar manner in some of the cover and promotional artwork.

I think the concept of being educated and being able to educate is something that more people need more of in their lives.

No, we don't all know everything but we should spread and share that what we do know.

If I'm consistently misspelling a word, I would want and expect people to correct me as should I imagine all decent people who know the value of good literacy.

Its just arrogant laziness to know you're spelling a word incorrectly and not correct yourself or ignore the advice when people do tell you how to spell a word correctly.

Ah, just remembered what April's "Stand Projection" reminded me of.  The spirit rising from the shoulders is similar to how Nero's Devil Trigger manifests in Devil May Cry 4.

Well I just got a weird e-mail. Loot Crate sent me a shipping update telling me because of Covid, my TMNT Crate #2 will be delayed. Well, I can't be too disappointed because, well, I only ordered the first one. I never ordered the second one. I guess they're treating it like normal crates where if you don't manually cancel it just automatically renews for the next one? That's not how it was presented when I ordered it. It looked like I was only ordering the one.

That said, I think I'll let this go. I didn't want to get all three crates because it looked like I'd have to pay for all three at once. If I'm only paying one at a time, I'd actually be all too thrilled to keep the TMNT merch coming. Can't wait now!
