Scarecrow plays the LONG game fighting Batman.

@  Steevy Maximus : (26 January 2021 - 09:17 PM)

I had to "delete" the download, and now the video is working correctly (as a streaming view).

@  Steevy Maximus : (26 January 2021 - 09:16 PM)

Strangest error? I downloaded the rental for Batman: Soul of the Dragon, and when I went to play it, it started an episode of Scarecrow And Mrs King. That show IS apparently part of my library (probably snagged it when Apple offered premiere episode for free), but I don't recall ever claiming it....

Question to all the native English speakers: Those of you familiar with Australian singer Sia - how hard are her vocals for you to understand?

death comes for us all. what difference does it make how?

@  ▲ndrusi : (25 January 2021 - 06:26 PM)

It's only murder and that is all, why should I feel the way I do...

@  Rufus : (25 January 2021 - 01:37 PM)

It's only murder if it comes from the Murder region of France, otherwise it's just suspiciously deceased.

@  TheMightyMol... : (24 January 2021 - 09:17 AM)

It's only murder if they find the body, otherwise it's just a missing persons case.

@  NotVeryKnightly : (23 January 2021 - 02:51 PM)

There was a five season anime with wearing relics as the premise.

@  PlutoniumBoss : (23 January 2021 - 01:16 PM)

You don't wear relics, you enshrine them.

@  wonko the sane? : (22 January 2021 - 06:23 PM)

Wrong holey... and probably the wrong way to dress too.

@  Rycochet : (22 January 2021 - 06:09 PM)

If your underwear is old and holy, it is considered a relic and should be protected with your life.

@  wonko the sane? : (22 January 2021 - 02:04 PM)

That's the argument we keep making: but I still need to wait till feb 8th minimum to replace my holey underwear.

@  TM2-Megatron : (22 January 2021 - 01:57 PM)

Personally I'm glad Ontario wasn't so misguided as to try to define what is or isn't "essential" for big box stores like Walmart to sell. If someone is stuck at home literally for weeks and unable to go out, who's to say a new TV or game console isn't essential (if only for one's sanity) if theirs breaks down?

@  TM2-Megatron : (22 January 2021 - 01:55 PM)

Although fortunately, Ontario's daily cases and positivity rate has been on a steady decline for the past week or so; if they can get the vaccinations back on track, there is some hope.

@  TM2-Megatron : (22 January 2021 - 01:53 PM)

And as far as Canada's lockdowns go, I'm guessing none of them will end until late March, or perhaps the beginning of April. What small businesses that might be left at that point will be allowed to open for their going out of business sales.

@  TM2-Megatron : (22 January 2021 - 01:52 PM)

Unfortunately the CEO of Target Canada made more money by running the company into the ground than he ever would have had he made it a success, so there was zero incentive to succeed.

@  TM2-Megatron : (22 January 2021 - 01:51 PM)

Target made some serious mistakes when they came into Canada. They focused on opening like 150+ stores within a 2 year timeframe and had no online infrastructure whatsoever; their website literally only contained legal blurbs and a store locator... lacking even the ability to see what they sold in stores, or if it was in stock and, if so, where. They should have started with 1/3 the number of stores with a full online experience including online shopping and inventory checking

@  wonko the sane? : (22 January 2021 - 12:35 PM)

See; quebec is under a new lockdown, have been since the 26th. It's supposed to end the 8th of february, but probably won't. Stores are only supposed to sell necessities (in deference to the stores which are closed.), but the quebec government made no effort define what counts as a "necessity", only punished them for getting it wrong. So I can buy all the candy I want, but not underwear, boots, winterwear, small appliances. Hell, my brother had to explain why he wanted a FUSE when he needed to fix his stove shortly before new years.

@  wonko the sane? : (22 January 2021 - 12:31 PM)

Targets don't exist in canada anymore. They lasted like 3 years before abandoning the market. But even if they WERE still here: they would be under the same poorly defined restrictions as walmart.

@  -LittleAutob... : (22 January 2021 - 12:10 PM)

Target's better-

@  wonko the sane? : (22 January 2021 - 07:51 AM)

HA! my walmarts can't even sell underwear. There's no clearances going on up here.

@  Steevy Maximus : (21 January 2021 - 11:31 PM)

@  tigerhawk : (18 January 2021 - 05:18 AM)

Or is the wound the Earth healing.

@  unluckiness : (18 January 2021 - 03:32 AM)

Healing is just destroying the wound

@  PlutoniumBoss : (17 January 2021 - 06:08 PM)

But eventually destroys everything.

@  tigerhawk : (17 January 2021 - 05:03 PM)

Heals many wounds

Time.

I dunno, maybe. I'm not clairvoyant either...

At first I saw the thread title and thought it was a fanfic idea.

 

Somehow I see this being repurposed by a lot of people as Gobots Leader 1, especially if the pilot helmet comes off.  Is this a retool of one of the MP seekers or Leader Jetfire family of molds, or is it totally new?  I don't have either to compare to.

 

None of this tempers my serious disappointment on the cancellation of the Crossovers/Loony Tunes line.  Just because it never actually existed and I made it all up doesn't take the sting out at all.

Maybe they cancelled it as the toys kept failing the drop test off the cliff.

I have never watched Top Gun (clips I've seen make it look awful) and am not a Tom Cruise fan so this is a pretty uninspiring follow up to the Ghostbusters crossover figure for me.

It's really gonna come down to what the Robot mode looks like if I'm gonna care. Can't tell enough from the box pic.

-ZacWilliam, if the robot mode is really cool sure, if it's not that's an easy pass.

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.

Maverick will definitely be a bit more tempting for me now. I wasn't too interested in Ectotron since his vehicle mode ends up way too big compared to mainline stuff, but jetformers are always wildly out-of-scale anyway. :wtf

 

Anybody figure out what figure Maverick might be remolded from? The box art gives him a rather movie-ish look, but the only large recent movie jetformer I can think of is Starscream. :hmm

I don't really think Ectotron was remold, he just reused some of the engineering from Hot Spot.

 

Perhaps that was more hassle than it was worth here and this is an entirely new design.

 

I like it so far. It'll be interesting to see the robot mode fully, but he looks pretty cool and like he'll slide in as an original character Autobot nicely.

Studio Series Blitzwing is a possibility, but any part re-use might be pretty minimal. I think we'll have to wait to see a pic of the actual toy in robot mode.

I suppose that's possible. The movie lines aren't normally allowed to be retooled into non-movie toys (or at least it's financially unattractive for Hasbro to do so without giving money to Paramount), but Top Gun is also a Paramount movie so maybe they've done a deal here.

Given that this seems to be wings on back, cockpit chest, do they even need to reuse engineering? At this point they do that 5 times a year so could do it with their eyes closed.

They didn't even make this on purpose. One of the designers just sat down to watch Top Gun and found it in his hands afterward.

Anyway, Top Gun might not have been high on anyone's "crossovers wanted" list (though I have a T-shirt that proves it isn't entirely unconsidered) but it's certainly a well-remembered property strongly associated with a specific vehicle. Nice to see that crossover toy logo really was a harbinger of things to come.
