Got some good views of the buildup, though (through certified filter glasses, of course)

@  RichardT1977 : (22 August 2017 - 10:56 PM)

I was in the zone of totality when the eclipse came. Unfortunately, I was also in the zone of cloud cover.

Blaze of Glory

@  Telly : (22 August 2017 - 07:24 PM)

was out at walmart early and ran into an old family friend. my phone was playing "blaze of glory" by bon jovi, she said she hadnt heard it for a long time. i said i like old music, its better than the crap they put out today. is this how OUR parents felt about our music?

Nah, they could tell by the lack of the very distinctive dialogue delivery. They just didn't want to be mean.

@  Dracula : (22 August 2017 - 08:42 AM)

Moon base is fine. I knew the castle was a total loss so I gave Olrox my best cape and told him he could have the throne room. The damn belmonts couldn't tell the difference

Which left like a hundred disappointed middle schoolers.

@  Diecast : (21 August 2017 - 06:09 PM)

Where I'm located got 95% eclipse. Which lacked a worthwhile climax. I really should have driven into it, but I planned on going to my science teacher wife's school thing that got cancelled last minute.

@  TM2-Megatron : (21 August 2017 - 03:44 PM)

I was considering trying to get the day off for it and driving down south to the US far enough that I could see the total eclipse, but after looking into it it seems like there's another total eclipse coming up in 2024 where the totality will be visible just 45 minutes south-west of me, so I figure I'll wait it out

@  Bass X0 : (21 August 2017 - 03:30 PM)

This news about Joss Whedon sure was a thing to wake up to.

@  Sabrblade : (20 August 2017 - 06:59 PM)

To back up to the original question about Scramble City's existence in regards to the English-language cartoon continuity, the pack-in comic that came with the Australian DVD boxed set released by Madman did feature a timeline of events that included a point in history titles "Scramble City", so that comic may at least want us to "pretend" that Scramble City happened in the cartoon continuity. But then again, that same comic also used the Marvel Comics' asteroid crisis as the true reason for the Ark's launch, and included the Beast Wars as being unambiguously part of this timeline, so make of that comic's timeline what you will.

@  NightViper : (20 August 2017 - 09:16 AM)

And unlike Takara's JG1 that has been steadily evolving and passing itself down from writer to writer in more-or-less smooth transition, anyone going back now to Hasbro's G1 does feel a bit more like changing history rather than reviving or continuing it.

@  NightViper : (20 August 2017 - 09:11 AM)

Editors at Fun Pub didn't feel it was right to try to "fix" or otherwise change or alter other writers' works. Which is why everything Fun Pub-written became its own stream (Animated was written by the same creative team as the show, so it's one of the very few stories still set in its original continuity). So rather than write words into the original creative team's mouths, Wings only sought to offer one possible solution to the Constructicons weirdness.

@  SHIELD Agent 47 : (19 August 2017 - 08:24 PM)

Too bad there weren't that many Wings stories. On the other hand, JG1 is still continuing with stories!

@  Spacewarp : (19 August 2017 - 06:10 PM)

Wings is obviously not cartoon continuity, but is heavily indebted to it.

@  Spacewarp : (19 August 2017 - 06:09 PM)

Basically what my original point was that continuities based on the original cartoon but not actually a part of it have used what Pennpenn originally said.

@  NotVeryKnightly : (19 August 2017 - 05:42 PM)

I get what you mean, but the wording is awful. It's not possible for Wings to "alter" or "destroy" something it was never part of, nor really interacted with.

@  NotVeryKnightly : (19 August 2017 - 05:40 PM)

It didn't "alter the existing continuity". It's an entirely new one that left the cartoon's continuity exactly as it ever was.

@  Bass X0 : (19 August 2017 - 05:24 PM)

didn't it take the original cartoon continuity but change parts of it to make a new continuity? i said i'd have preferred it stayed within the original cartoon continuity instead of altering the existing continuity. thats what i would have done. stories would have been written around the existing stories.

@  NotVeryKnightly : (19 August 2017 - 04:24 PM)

Wings can't "destroy it even further" when it was never the cartoon continuity in the first place.

@  TheMightyMol... : (19 August 2017 - 03:57 PM)

The problem is that it isn't really fixable without redoing it from the ground up. Or going into insane retcons and rewrites, which A) is about the same thing, and B) is kinda Takara's thing.

@  Bass X0 : (19 August 2017 - 03:22 PM)

I find its better to fix a broken continuity than to destroy it even further.

@  TheMightyMol... : (19 August 2017 - 03:06 PM)

The cartoon couldn't even stay consistent with the cartoon, so why worry when something else can't, either?

@  Bass X0 : (19 August 2017 - 02:53 PM)

I never connected with the whole "Wings is similar to the cartoon continuity but several things are different" thing they had going on. they should really have done it so that it stayed in continuity with the cartoon but focused on the off-screen events prior, during and after the cartoon stories.

@  unluckiness : (19 August 2017 - 10:42 AM)

Not like it's ever relevant anyway.

@  Pennpenn : (19 August 2017 - 10:00 AM)

I mean, it doesn't make sense otherwise, regardless of how official particular fiction is.

Good thing the things I'm looking forward to are a ways off. D-Arts hasn't even started yet, and it's obvious that Beelzemon there is an unfinished figure, so I'm fine on that front. Seravee 3G shouldn't be coming out anytime soon, either. And they're certainly not going to spring a Chogokin release on us without warning, so I'm fine on Escaflowne.


Which is good, because I'm tapped out for the next little bit, just having paid for a Koenig Monster and a PlayArts Odin, as well as a healthy complement of smaller items.


[edit] Knew that release date was a little bit quick, since they usually give retailers enough time to solicit pre-orders and whatnot. Pre-orders for Kazuma are up already, but according to Amiami, he's not out until January.

Why does HLJ say "October Release", then?

HLJ pre-orders are tricky. Let's say they have a Gundam kit which is due in for September. All their info beforehand will tell customers that's when they'll have it. However, should no stock emerge by the end of the month it'll be listed for October. If no stock continues to arrive, the month will just keep going and going and going...seriously, I've seen them do it for things like trading figures where they never get a certain set in but somehow manage to get the one before and after just fine. I've even got some Gunpla on order from them all due this month, yet they list some of them as far as December.
There's also the fact that HLJ effectively declared war on Amiami this week, saying they're doing away with Japanese retail price in favour of more competitive discounted prices for all items. Since they seem to be taking their competition more seriously, I'd say all the evidence is good enough to at least suspect they rushed all these new items up for pre-order with no real release date info simply not to lose customers.

Meanwhile, I think waiting until January for stuff that was hinted at 8 months ago is insane. Bandai works in mysterious ways, plus these figures are fully colored and appear to be ready for production, which is not something Bandai usually has 4 months in advance.

I think that someone goofed and these items ARE being released in October.

Bandai can and will announce stuff that is ready, only to sit on it. Perfect examples- the missile container version of HG Kyrios and the Sangokuden Real Grade kits. The fact that a thing looks ready to go doesn't mean it will. I can't claim to have a definitive answer here, but I will be amazed if they dump all this out in one month after showing it an expo.

It's not EVERYTHING, though.

3 Damashii and 3 Figuarts in one month isn't outlandish for Bandai.

Nobody's saying every single thing shown at Tamashii Nation is coming out next month...

And what the hell are you talking about, anyway? Neither one of those things exist!

HG Kyrios has been shown a ton of times. There are even unused polycap ports in the existing kits legs which were designed to accomodate it. Likewise, about a year ago Bandai announced kits of Zeta and Double Zeta styles as Chouhi and Kanu were under planning.
Both examples were ultimately abandoned, despite a great deal of work having been put into them (Kyrios in particular would have been very easy, all they need was to mass produce the missile container component).

I think the list is perfect in the sense of being fairly predictable. All the lead characters' final forms and a few other big ones. While there's some I like, most of my favs aren't listed/shown outside of Beelzemon. Of course, they could always make others along side these so nothing's set in stone. Personally, I'm hoping for Leomon at some point.

Kaiyodo has been after me all year starting with the Revoltech transformable Macross jets. I skipped to wait for the sure to happen Max colors. Then they made Trigun, which were a must. Then they killed themselves with those tiny overpriced Zoids. And somewhere along the way, I preordered Lupin III. Now Bandai's is after me. I'm already deciding who I want the most so I can get who I really want. Wargreymon might be the first to go so I can get Kazuma, but that's a tough choice.

That's pretty well exactly what BBTS does. Allspark Almanac 2 was August. Now it still says September, but I expect it to move to October soon. This gets really annoying when you have a pile of loot and keep wating for that final item. Especially since their inventory system occasionally is crap and you find out at shipping time that they didn't really hold something for you. That's fun when it's now too late to order something anywhere else except jacked up on ebay.
