Like, in general, not going into specific bands or covers. Because I could point out plenty of repainted toys I didn't like as much as the original, too.

@  TheMightyMol... : (17 May 2021 - 06:39 AM)

Is a musician covering a song "fixing" it?

@  Nevermore : (17 May 2021 - 05:15 AM)

So, then, isn't redecoing or retooling an existing toy also "fixing" someone else's art?

@  PlutoniumBoss : (16 May 2021 - 10:07 PM)

A toy is not on the same level as a piece of drawn art, true, but it is 100% an entertainment product.

@  Nevermore : (16 May 2021 - 05:05 PM)

A toy is an object of utility, Comparing that to a piece of drawn art is grossly ignoring the difference between the two. Also, you didn't answer my questions. Try again.

@  PlutoniumBoss : (16 May 2021 - 04:25 PM)

Part of the difference is that those covers are primarily one person's art. Sure, you probably have an inker and a colorist, but the lines and composition are one person. A toy however is a team design at pretty much all levels.

@  Cyoti : (16 May 2021 - 03:52 PM)

toymaking is a collaborative process, you have to make compromises and factories are going to get things wrong

@  tigerhawk : (16 May 2021 - 03:43 PM)

Earthrise had a few holes, Runamuck's legs YIKES!

@  NotVeryKnightly : (16 May 2021 - 03:37 PM)

I doubt that say, the designer for Kingdom Cheetor was happy about every bit of unpainted plastic on it.

@  Bass X0 : (16 May 2021 - 03:28 PM)

J Scott Campbell recently had his Spiderman cover "fixed" by someone online. A few weeks ago, someone on twitter "fixed" someone's Sonic the Hedgehog fan art where Sonic, Tails and Knuckles were drawn as humans. Both times and other times, the "fixer" gets called out and criticised as you shouldn't go around "fixing" someone else's art because its rude and disrespectful to the original artist. And I was thinking isn't "fixed your s*** for ya" exactly what toy customisers do?

@  Nevermore : (16 May 2021 - 02:28 PM)

Have you ever changed your car in any way whatsoever compared to the factory configuration, or are you leaving the designer's art unchanged in that case as well?

@  CORVUS : (16 May 2021 - 02:28 PM)

It's best not to ponder it too hard.

@  Nevermore : (16 May 2021 - 04:16 AM)

Bass X0, I really wonder sometimes how you come up with these random tangents apropos of nothing.

@  PlutoniumBoss : (16 May 2021 - 04:11 AM)

It's collaborative art.

@  NotVeryKnightly : (16 May 2021 - 04:07 AM)

Toys are subject to budget constraints, so its not like customizing would ruin the designer's vision or whatever.

@  Bass X0 : (16 May 2021 - 03:38 AM)

Isn't customising a toy just "fixing other people's art"?

The 1988 G1 line up could all have been done as Titan Master things, I figure the Pretenders could be done as Titan Master Drones and Prime Master shells.

@  Cyoti : (08 May 2021 - 11:14 AM)

Perfect is the enemy of the good. And it's still better than making him a remold of RTS Jazz as planned originally. Fact of the matter is: Nightbeat is just not a priority with Hasbro.

Looks like there are rumors of Transformers movies again...

 

https://www.hollywoo...writers-1273748

 

Two "concurrent" movies, supposedly.

 

Let's see what comes of this, or if it will end up like the "writer's room" movies that were promised.

Nice, I hope this comes to something. It's just neat that we might get more Beast wars that may or not be just "They're from the future and come to the past". Posi Vibes. Posi Vibes.

 

Also hey, I guess this means Hasbro will be forced to make Beast wars toys!

They just have two films in concurrent development, not movies due or set at the same time.  Probably as a means to give them flexibility if one or the other comes together faster than the other (or if any issues come up during production).

 

We'll see.  Bumblebee seems to have helped knock some sense into Hasbro, so it feels like there is a major push to make sure these movies are decent.  Probably helps that Hasbro's forking out some money for these now as well.

I love Beast Wars, but I have no idea how it could possibly work as a big budget popcorn flick and retain anything that made me love the series.

Well, multiple legitimate sites seem to be reporting the news from Variety, which lends credence to the prospect.

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.

Now just give me a Xenogears remake and I'll be 2-0.

I'm scared of what theyll do to Optimus Primal.

I think transforming robots out of Lion King animals would be really unique and cool.

It's somehow better than an animal that's just animal.  These are aliens, so they have license to emote differently than just a "regular" talking animal.

Like if we found out that CGI dog in the new Harrison Ford movie was an alien, I could accept that easier than a dog that's just a dog who has exaggerated human facial expressions (which look completely awful in the trailer).

With the Bumblebee movie, we've seen they've gotten better at better adapting the classic cartoon and toy designs for a real world setting, so translating animals to robots would hopefully be less nightmarish than previously thought.

I can picture in my head how incredibly regal a white lion with a golden mane would look. And then to have that transform into some version of Optimus' recognizable silhouette?  I wouldn't be surprised if that was one of the shots they pitched to get the thing made.
