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

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

The real Drifts were the Windblades we made along the way

Drift-kun 2 Electric Boobylube

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.

@  Maximus Ambus : (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.

@  Maximus Ambus : (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.

@  Bass X0 : (22 November 2020 - 01:53 AM)

So characters like Windblade then.

@  TheMightyMol... : (21 November 2020 - 07:19 PM)

They're complicated and expensive to design. By necessity, they're gonna be restricted to well-known characters who are more likely to sell.

@  Bass X0 : (21 November 2020 - 07:05 PM)

I don’t think Masterpiece toys should be restricted to only show characters.

@  Rycochet : (21 November 2020 - 03:09 PM)

If she wasn't in the Sunbow cartoon, Live Action movie or Beast Wars and can't be repainted from someone else, she's not getting an MP.

@  wonko the sane? : (21 November 2020 - 12:44 PM)

They'll make their money back if they include the metal thong...

@  TheMightyMol... : (21 November 2020 - 12:29 PM)

Is she popular enough in Japan that Takara would even try?

@  Paladin : (21 November 2020 - 11:23 AM)

depends. will that one also have a giant metal thong?

@  Bass X0 : (21 November 2020 - 11:10 AM)

Should there be a Masterpiece Windblade?

It's great how they reference G1 concepts like this one features the harmony from the episode Carnage in C Minor and and Slugslingers featured anti electrons from Grimlocks New Brain.

@  Tm_Silverclaw : (14 November 2020 - 11:56 PM)

I swear though.. The idea of "Catch up" is stupid.

@  TM2-Megatron : (14 November 2020 - 11:25 PM)

That's irritating, but it sounds par for the course with new hardware release. Within a year, there'll probably be some good stuff out there that does it all.

@  Tm_Silverclaw : (14 November 2020 - 11:23 PM)

4K/HDR switches are.. iffy.. Because most of them can't do 4K and HDR at the same time.. Or can't do 120hz... and all sorts of things the new TVs have built in, and the new consoles use...

@  TM2-Megatron : (14 November 2020 - 11:18 PM)

Maybe now that the PS5's made the whole 4K thing a little more mainstream, the hardware will start becoming more common. I know that's one of the hopes the physical media community has for the 100GB discs the PS5 is going to be using. Prior to this, they were very expensive tor replicate compared to a regular blu-ray and not used very often

@  TM2-Megatron : (14 November 2020 - 11:17 PM)

Up to now, there really haven't been a whole lot of 4K disc players to choose from... Samsung stopped making them altogether when they couldn't compete with the others, so your main choices are a few models of Panasonic or Sony

@  TM2-Megatron : (14 November 2020 - 11:14 PM)

Is there no such thing as a 4K/HDR switch yet?

@  Tm_Silverclaw : (14 November 2020 - 10:10 PM)

Which is fine.. But that still doesn't explain why they arn't putting out up to date HDMI switch boxes to get.. more money.

@  TM2-Megatron : (14 November 2020 - 09:59 PM)

My only TV with a respectable number of ports is my OLED 4K/3D, which has 4 HDMI, 2 USB 2.0s, 1 USB 3.0 and some weird proprietary thing that acts as both component and composite, depending on what you need. But it retailed for $10k when it first came out (I bought it 14 months later for less than half that). THey're going to get as many corners on less expensive sets as they can, which usually means only providing 2 HDMIs.

@  TM2-Megatron : (14 November 2020 - 09:55 PM)

I mean, there are some decent ones for under a grand. But yeah, I imagine that's what they're thinking. Most people I know, unless they're film or A/V aficionados, all they've got hooked up to their TV is a digital cable receiver and perhaps a game console and dated DVD player

@  Tm_Silverclaw : (14 November 2020 - 09:45 PM)

TM2-Megatron... If that is their assumptions.. That is one of the stupidest way to think.. Especially since Multichannel receivers way to fricken expensive for that. 3000 is way to expensive.

@  TM2-Megatron : (14 November 2020 - 09:11 PM)

They probably assume the people who actually need a lot of ports are the type of consumers who'd have a decently high-end Multichannel receiver. Whereas those people who don't need many connections probably don't even have a blu-ray player or anything. Maybe just a gaming console for the kids and an old DVD player.

@  wonko the sane? : (14 November 2020 - 04:04 PM)

I saw that movie. I don't want jim carrey in my head.

@  Maximus Ambus : (14 November 2020 - 03:43 PM)

Soon beam TV programs into brains with a neural transciever anyway.

@  wonko the sane? : (14 November 2020 - 03:28 PM)

I'm surprised they keep reducing the number of ports on TV's.

@  Tm_Silverclaw : (14 November 2020 - 02:52 PM)

Ahh.. No.. I mean an HDMI 2.1 switcher box to give you more imputs on a TV. :D Those should have been released in preparation of the XSX and PS5 considering their touting 2.1 features. :D

"Hmph."

 

She relaxed for a moment, then threw herself forwards against the glass.

As the glass shattered, she hit the ground rolling. She had get as close as possible to the capsule at the center of the room before the few workers left had a chance to react... or retaliate.

When Patch practically exploded out from the glass, she had perhaps too much momentum as she rolled and was covered in glass shards. The last few workers sharply turned their heads upon hearing the sound. They seemed to panic a bit, glanced at the timer that was counting down, then took off running. Soon the room was silent except for ominous countdown.

Patch got back on her feet. The handful of workers had fled, apparently not being armed like the hunters she'd encountered earlier. Or perhaps it had more to do with the timer? She didn't like the sound of it, but she was more concerned with what lay ahead... the capsule.
 
Idly plucking shards of glass from her body as she charged ahead towards the metal capsule, her mind, warped as it was and drawn in by the sensation of such power, pondered what it was placed here to do. Was it drawing strength from the others in the glass cylinders, or was its purpose something else...? What could be gained from it... or be gained by destroying it?

It was curious. For what Patch knew of YPNR, it would seem odd for a magical thing to be so prominent in the room. If it was drawing strength from the other cylinders, it didn't seem to have cables leading directly to it.

Patch got up close to the capsule and looked it over. "Such a curious object... it would be a shame to have to resort to violence to figure out its secrets. But, I am under a bit of pressure..." She glanced up at the screen showing the countdown.

Patch was unsure how to deal with the capsule. It didn't have any visible wires or a control panel. With some thought, she decided to lift it as she doubted they planned for someone of her strength. With a heave, she pulled amongst the sounds of groaning metal. Two things happened once she ripped it from the ground. First, the capsule went flying from her hands the moment there wasn't any more resistance. Second, the power went out. Emergency generators kicked in but even as lights slowly turned back on, Patch could see in the darkness what was formerly in the capsule--a person. A woman that was slightly shorter than her with pale skin, black hair, and a plain brown dress. When she opened her eyes, they shifted from greyscale to normal color with hazel irises. As she observed Patch, the voice seemed none too pleased.

"Oh. Well, there's a fish you can toss back in the ocean."

"Hmmm. Is that so?" Patch took a moment to verify that the woman was, in fact, the source of the arcane energy she had sensed earlier.

As the woman yawned and stretched, the intense arcane aura lowered to something still present but less overt. She seemed to pause and think before asking, "And just how are you today?" She seemed to have a subtle accent that was similar to Dee.

Patch briefly frowned, not expecting to be drawn into small talk in such a situation, but decided to humor the woman nonetheless. "I am doing just fine. I hope you are as well." 

 

After a moment she asked, "Do you know where you are right now?"

The woman seemed to be caught off guard by Patch's initial response but then regained composure. Upon hearing Patch's two questions she replied, "I've certainly been better. As far as where I am, I don't know but I know I'm not farther north. Do you know where I am?" Without waiting for a response, she started walking around. She was barefoot but didn't seem bothered by anything on the floor.

"Oh?" The woman stopped and arched eyebrow. "By your comment, it seems to imply that that's important. Funny, I thought they just left. Obviously the ones in control aren't the ones in glass cages suffocating." She tapped her index finger to her lip as she thought, and then said, "Drowning. There's water in those. I always get those two mixed up."

I have a long-standing grudge against the people running this place. I didn't arrive here willingly, but now that I'm here, I intend to do two things: find my way out, and cause as much damage as possible while doing so. So, I wonder. What do you plan to do?"

As far as Patch could tell, the exit was obvious as it where the workers ran when she broke out her capsule. Looking around, she did see five other capsules with people in them. Three of which, had something akin to an oxygen mask on and were struggling ineffectually. The woman picked up a handful of glass shards and started to walk toward the exit.
