Wonderful audio separation and balance.

@  Steevy Maximus : (30 November 2020 - 09:29 PM)

For Transformers The Movie 86

@  Steevy Maximus : (30 November 2020 - 09:28 PM)

I will say, the blu ray remaster, especially the audio is pretty spot on. Watching it on Apple TV has been enlightening.

@  SHIELD Agent 47 : (30 November 2020 - 09:00 PM)

Vode An!

@  SHIELD Agent 47 : (30 November 2020 - 08:59 PM)

I do not overly care for the Bad Batch, but it will be interesting to see what the animated series will bring to the table.

@  SHIELD Agent 47 : (30 November 2020 - 08:59 PM)

Alpha, Delta Squad, Omega Squad, and the Muunilinst 10 are quite the contrast to what we have at present in Disney canon.

@  SHIELD Agent 47 : (30 November 2020 - 08:57 PM)

Who else here read the pre-2008 Clone Commandos and ARC Troopers back in the day?

@  Maximus Ambus : (30 November 2020 - 05:04 PM)

Monoliths in Utah and Romania.

@  Sabrblade : (29 November 2020 - 05:11 PM)

Also, the face of the black redeco is painted gray.

@  Sabrblade : (29 November 2020 - 05:09 PM)

To be a little fair, the original was also lacking in more detailed color. The Telemocha Series figure fixed that.

@  TheMightyMol... : (29 November 2020 - 05:05 PM)

The unpainted face and all the greys make that look like a knockoff.

@  Sabrblade : (29 November 2020 - 05:01 PM)

Decided to stick with the main cast from 2007 and a few assorted ones here and there.

@  TheMightyMol... : (27 November 2020 - 02:02 PM)

I said I wouldn't buy a lot, now I have seven. And at least three might be on the culling pile.

There was also an evil-looking black and gray redeco of the RobotMasters toy

@  Arazyr : (25 November 2020 - 11:54 AM)

That's KIND-OF what I consider the Throne of the Primes Primal to be...

@  wonko the sane? : (25 November 2020 - 11:16 AM)

I would buy the hell out a nemesis primal...

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

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

@  unluckiness : (23 November 2020 - 03:17 AM)

The real Drifts were the Windblades we made along the way

@  PlutoniumBoss : (23 November 2020 - 02:25 AM)

Drift-kun 2 Electric Boobylube

@  ▲ndrusi : (22 November 2020 - 11:36 PM)

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?

@  -LittleAutob... : (20 November 2020 - 12:46 PM)

It's a work in progress, I think we had it up until just a couple of days ago. One of our guys is working on the site's back and frontends a little bit, and I think our host has been acting up a bit as well-- later in the evening, the site's been running rather slow, though today seemed a bit better.

Anyway, I'll see what I can find out.

I wonder how many here played the 5th Gameboy MM? The original content Stardroids were a pretty neat set of bosses, and some of the weapons had ideas never really seen in the NES titles. Of course, I always started with Mercury for the Grab Buster.

I'm right there with you, Indy. Been a fan of Megaman since Megaman 2, and by Megaman 3, I was pretty much sucked in. Although the numerous spin-offs other than X turned me off a bit. To be honest, the X series seemed to be getting a little too unwieldy in recent years, and anything other than Classic and X doesn't interest me in the slightest; Zero, for example, just confuses me. I mean, robot fairies?

As for style, give me the retro style any day. Megaman 7's style was never my preference, with the giant boots and gloves. There was no sense of proportion.

I'll have to try Megaman 9 once I get a system that can play it; I've heard good things, though from what I hear the difficulty really is insane, even compared to the first few titles.
Being part of any fandom is fundamentally embarassing.

I do find that the X series went downhill after X5...

Though, going back and playing them, I find that X6 and X7 aren't nearly as bad as people think.

X6 is burdened with horrendous level design and a story that doesn't make sense, and X7 has gameplay issues, but neither are truly awful AVGN worthy games.

I liked X6, to be honest. X7 was a another story. Most complains floated around the new character, Axl mostly.

The GB Megaman games were pretty awesome in their ways. Seeing characters like Enker, Quint, Punk, Ballade and Terra in the fray was something differnt.

I lucked out and got a copy at Anime North (cartridge only) for $9.99 Canadian. Only beaten one boss so far, but I'm working on it.

Man, I'm out of the loop since I left.


Oh yeah. That was the first thing I did when I took over; I figured The Mega Man Network had too much history behind it to simply discard, and I really didn't like the "pick and choose" philosophy that Blue Bomber was ready to adopt instead.

Come to think of it, I don't even think that "Blue Bomber" ever really took off; not even the people on IRC wanted to switch channels.

We also merged with Atomic Fire; now all their assets are ours. icon-fire.gif

As far as the thread goes, I came in with MM1, and have been with it ever since.

I have not yet beaten MM9, mainly for two reasons:

1) The archaic save system, which is near-useless on the Wily levels. There's such a thing as being too loyal to the oldschool, I think, and that is it.

2) It took over a decade for us to move past 8; I figure there's no need to rush just yet.

Agreeable. I just use the Ultimate Armor to start with in X6. I've beaten the game without it, but it really fixes a lot of those level and balance issues.

X7 is a decent game, but bad by Mega Man standards. I still have mine in shrink wrap after buying it for under ten bucks. Prior, I'd played it on rentals and the like.

X8, I love (except the vehicle stages). To me, this is what an arcade Mega Man X game would be like. And given I grew up on Contra and the like, that's fine by me. Plus, Axl is awesome in it; that should have been his debut game, as a playable character if nothing else.

On this note, I would love another Command Mission. Particularly if it went more along the lines of what the title sounds like, where perhaps you got to actually "command" a group of Maverick Hunters. Bring back Douglas, Lifesaver, add more Hunters. Maybe work in something like the liberation missions from Battle Network 5. I'd be all over that.

I didn't enjoy X8 or Command Mission at all. I actually sold them because I didn't like them, a first for me with Megaman games (I usually keep them regardless of quality just because they're Megaman games).


I think I would quite like a Megaman game done in the 2D Castlevania and Metroid games where you have a huge map to explore rather than individual levels.

Well, only a select few staff were retained... just Heatman and Tabby, I think. I think IHZ still drops in bits via Heatman, so he's not exactly out of the picture entirely, but he's not exactly hobnobbing with us and rubbing elbows, if you get my drift.
