(And the 0th anniversary of the last time I couldn't do math.)

@  ▲ndrusi : (04 July 2020 - 10:46 AM)

Today is the 24th anniversary of the day we fought off an alien invasion with the help of Will Smith.

@  Maximus Ambus : (04 July 2020 - 10:41 AM)

Oh the end of the Ottoman Empire of course.

@  -LittleAutob... : (30 June 2020 - 05:55 PM)

x-x when in vehicle mode we can travel much F A R T H E R-

@  wonko the sane? : (30 June 2020 - 05:52 PM)

Because despite the fact that we can travel around the world in the time it takes to get a good nights sleep and a couple of meals: people rarely wander more than 25 miles away from home for the duration of their lives.

@  Otaku : (30 June 2020 - 05:49 PM)

I don't know how many days that trip takes - especially while sightseeing - but explaining they're 3936 kilometers (2445 miles) apart gives an idea, paradoxically because it is too large to easily picture.

@  Otaku : (30 June 2020 - 05:44 PM)

Aye.  When I catch lay people discussing miles and not how long the trip takes, it is in an attempt to stress how far away something is... like NYC to LA.

@  ▲ndrusi : (30 June 2020 - 01:20 PM)

But I can imagine 45 *minutes* easily.

@  ▲ndrusi : (30 June 2020 - 01:20 PM)

I can imagine a mile, it's a distance I've run. I can't really imagine 45 miles.

@  ▲ndrusi : (30 June 2020 - 01:19 PM)

I think there's also an element of the thing where things that are much bigger than us all blur together.

@  Otaku : (30 June 2020 - 11:49 AM)

If you're not, then you're more concerned with how long it takes.  Actual distance doesn't tell you that very well.  Besides traffic and road conditions, you'll need to know what kind of driving (city/interstate/rural/etc.).

@  Otaku : (30 June 2020 - 11:47 AM)

Distance matters if you're being paid by the mile.

@  TM2-Megatron : (30 June 2020 - 11:44 AM)

Canadians are the same way, for the most part. If you're driving somewhere far, especially, it helps you plan out the day more than a distance in KM would.

@  Otaku : (30 June 2020 - 11:42 AM)

We use the time it takes to get someplace because that is what is relevant to us.

@  TheMightyMol... : (30 June 2020 - 10:55 AM)

Because even we can't figure out miles half the time.

@  Paladin : (30 June 2020 - 09:54 AM)

it's a big country with a lot of empty space. between our citizens' ears.

@  Bass X0 : (30 June 2020 - 09:52 AM)

Why do most Americans measure distance by hours of driving?

@  TM2-Megatron : (29 June 2020 - 07:26 PM)

And as a result the world's lone blu-ray release of the film, an Australian disc that came out 7 years ago, now goes for hundreds of dollars on eBay. Thanks Disney.

@  TM2-Megatron : (29 June 2020 - 06:21 PM)

Well, they censored Daryl Hannah's butt in Splash :rolleyes

@  Paladin : (29 June 2020 - 05:43 PM)

maybe New Mutants is too bad even for D+.

@  Steevy Maximus : (29 June 2020 - 05:00 PM)

X-Men films are coming to Disney+ next month. But will they censor Hugh Jackman's butt?

@  -LittleAutob... : (29 June 2020 - 12:44 PM)

@  TheMightyMol... : (29 June 2020 - 11:59 AM)

I will grant you a recolored body, and recolored troops to command.

@  Cybersnark : (29 June 2020 - 09:47 AM)

I don't want to be reissued. This body sucks, I wanna be updated.

@  Nevermore : (29 June 2020 - 09:43 AM)

I definitely don't intend to be reissued. Nobody would buy me.

@  Bass X0 : (29 June 2020 - 08:31 AM)

will anybody else attempt to be reissued?

@  wonko the sane? : (29 June 2020 - 07:51 AM)

*Gasp* Decepticons re-writing history to serve their own needs?!?!

@  Nevermore : (29 June 2020 - 05:48 AM)

The whole point of the DJD is that they're fanatical Megatron fanboys (especially Tarn) to the point of having their own headcanon taking priority of the actual canon, simply speaking.

@  TheMightyMol... : (29 June 2020 - 04:01 AM)

They didn't know the war was over until later. And then they denied it anyway.

As someone who really liked Beast Wars II and absolutely loved the Space Pirate Seacons, I am really excited for this release!  Seriously, if you told me if I thought we would get the BWII Seacons ten years ago, I really wouldn't have believed it, yet here we are!

 

 

Also, I really hope Nautilator/Lobclaw gets repainted as a new character, most likely as an addition to the crew, like a treasure hunter whose sole job is to take over as the leg when Scylla gets distracted.  I know HasLab would never do it, but it would be absolutely amazing if they made the ship for the Seacons, although that is just wishful thinking on my part. 

 

 

Can't wait to see the Seacons all revealed!

Before I ever actually looked up their BW Characterization, I had already decided that for me Snaptrap would be based largely on the historical Blackbeard.  In other words, highly intelligent, highly effective, and good at convincing people that he is so totally nuts that they'd better just give up now before something really horrible happens.  Some of the other Seacons are very good at 'talking down the captain' to try to keep more hostages alive, and convince everyone it's in their best interest to just give him what he wants so they can get him back to the ship before he has a 'bad spell'.  And if that act doesn't work, Piranhacon does.

Scylla has a new head and chest it would seem. She also uses Moonracer's thighs and not Tentakil's as people theorized.

No, that's SG MP-10.

The "White Matrix" that Battle Core OP has is the Matrix Saber that came with Arms Master Optimus from the Japanese Prime toyline. "Matrix Saber" was the Japanese name for the Star Saber in the Prime cartoon.

Looks like this manga has officially retconned TFTM by claiming that Unicron specifically used Angolmois Energy to upgrade Megatron and his fallen troops into Galvatron and Friends.

 

This... actually isn't quite a new idea since, back in Beast Wars II, when Megastorm was upgraded into Gigastorm via Angolmois Energy, the same grid-based visual effect that accompanied Megatron's upgrade into Galvatron during the movie was also used for Megastorm's upgrade. This comic is just streamlining the similarities of those two events by making them both having used the same energy.

I think ts cool they exist but it's not a set of characters I need in an expensive box set. At regular US store retail prices I might pic them all up just cause they look neat and Scylla is a fun character but at Japanese box set price it's an easy pass for me.

That said, what I DO need is this comic translated and explained. Why the color-themed TF groups? Are they doing a Green Lantern corp different color ring team thing for some reason?

Even it was highly unlikely, since his mold was never part of the team, i can't help but feel kinda disappointed that God Neptune is going to judt be the original five members and no bonus space pirate Nautilator. So now i'm a bit conflicted as to which Seacons i want more. Regular or space pirate glavour.
