they arent all that bad. theyve got old mst3k and lots of 80s cartoons. last i checked anyway. had gi joe, vehicle voltron, cops, some transformers i think and subbed original captain harlock even

@  TM2-Megatron : (20 April 2021 - 08:56 PM)

I've seen the icon on my Roku; always assumed it was just a slightly "classier" version of those bottom-of-the-barrel trash free streaming services that offer VHS transfers of the very worst the 70s and 80s had to offer

@  TM2-Megatron : (20 April 2021 - 08:55 PM)

isn't tubitv one of those free services?

@  wonko the sane? : (20 April 2021 - 08:54 PM)

And I agree with you in principal, but tubi is neither canadian (or is it? *checks* nope.) nor an internet service provider. Don't get me wrong: rogers, telus, bell, et al. are all part of the problem, but not my current or specific problem.

@  TM2-Megatron : (20 April 2021 - 08:50 PM)

I wasn't talking about Bell or Rogers as ISPs, but as media providers. Sadly, the same companies that sell us the internet also happen to be broadcasting titans that own the distribution rights for most popular content

@  wonko the sane? : (20 April 2021 - 06:16 PM)

While I agree with you in principal: the problem here isn't the internet service providers. Though the onus of fixing it as a systemic problem is probably on them.

@  TM2-Megatron : (20 April 2021 - 03:16 PM)

then how would honest Canadian companies like Rogers or Bell be able to overcharge you for content, or not even make the content available in your region for varied and unknowable reasons?

@  wonko the sane? : (20 April 2021 - 02:33 PM)

It's on the internet, but the internet is being treated like it's regional. It doesn't matter that I'm in canada, It's the internet. Stop enforcing outdated and completely arbitrary broadcast restrictions on the global telecommunication network.

@  wonko the sane? : (20 April 2021 - 02:32 PM)

Nope, security is not my concern at all.

@  PlutoniumBoss : (20 April 2021 - 01:56 PM)

I mean, if you're not worried about security and just using it to access geolocked content, there are free vpns.

@  wonko the sane? : (20 April 2021 - 11:43 AM)

To watch cartoons on a free streaming program? Might as well write my representative if I have to fix problems other people caused.

They must not have really wanted to sell you anything.

@  Sabrblade : (16 April 2021 - 09:19 AM)

This just happened to be the first time one ever gave up and walked away immediately after ringing the bell. Like, no patience at all or something.

Covid didn't stop salespeople from coming to my neighborhood. They are still a consistent annoyance.

@  TM2-Megatron : (15 April 2021 - 04:04 PM)

door to door salesmen (or those offering religion) certainly are one of the things lost to COVID that I've missed the least

@  Sabrblade : (15 April 2021 - 10:07 AM)

They rang the bell and were walking away before I even got to the door mere seconds later.

@  Sabrblade : (15 April 2021 - 10:06 AM)

I just got ding-dong-ditched by a salesperson.

@  Tm_Silverclaw : (13 April 2021 - 06:27 AM)

No.. It's Tiberious Maximus... And there is a comic with such already. :D

@  Donocropolis : (12 April 2021 - 11:15 AM)

Yes. Color it like the Energon version of Unicron. Also, give us Fortress Tiberious.

@  wonko the sane? : (12 April 2021 - 09:49 AM)

@  Tm_Silverclaw : (12 April 2021 - 09:00 AM)

@  TheMightyMol... : (12 April 2021 - 05:39 AM)

I saw most of them at retail at TRU, but that's not an option in the US anymore.

Dibs on naming the Ark robot Arkonus.

@  Kalidor : (11 April 2021 - 09:48 PM)

The only Titan figure I ever saw at retail was Trypticon at Ollie's

@  PlutoniumBoss : (11 April 2021 - 09:12 PM)

Robosen Prime has market crossover with not just the toy collectors, but robotics enthusiasts quite willing to pay that price for a product like this.

@  wonko the sane? : (11 April 2021 - 08:33 PM)

One of my two local TRUs will stock exactly ONE titan at a time. It usually ends up "clearanced" for about 20 bucks off cause no one is willing to pay for at full price OR discounted.

@  TheMightyMol... : (11 April 2021 - 07:56 PM)

Most stores don't seem to want to stock Commanders or Titans, never mind Unicron.

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




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.

I'm on twitter for some reason! Hell if I know why.

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

Yeah I think at best it'd just be the other movies except with Lion King graphics.

Rattrap travels through time to set right what once went wrong, each time hoping the next leap will be the leap home. Then he jokes about sex, while farting.

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 leery of Beast Wars since Live-Action Cartoon Animals are always the stuff of nightmares.

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.
