One of the dumbest TF ideas I ever had: Hot Rod (by whatever means) produces a son, who is named "Go-Cart".

@  TM2-Megatron : (20 August 2019 - 06:06 PM)

In its current form, DS9 is eventually going to fade from the public consciousness. Even on modern top-of-the-line displays, those old SD masters look like trash, and there's only so long younger generations will be able to stomach them. I can only imagine how they'll look when everyone has ultra-short throw projectors casting 120" images on their walls

@  TM2-Megatron : (20 August 2019 - 06:05 PM)

It's definitely offputting, but Trek is one property I'd be willing to hold my nose and open my wallet for. I care far more about DS9 being available in the long-term, and for future generations, than my distaste for corporate greed

@  Rycochet : (20 August 2019 - 05:39 PM)

'Pay up now and fund this remaster we'll be able to profit from for decades, as this will be your only chance to get that show you like on BluRay... Until the superdeluxe re-release with even more stuff and a metal box.'

@  Rycochet : (20 August 2019 - 05:14 PM)

Stuff they're intending to remaster anyway for their streaming service would become crowdfunding projects.

@  Rycochet : (20 August 2019 - 05:09 PM)

I love DS9, but there is something offputting about giving money direct to Viacom for a project like this, probably because it would set a bad precedent. Given how moneygrubbing they are, it would quickly become their go-to solution for any old show they want remastered rather than dipping their hands in their own deep pockets.

@  TM2-Megatron : (20 August 2019 - 02:48 PM)

A crowdfunding probably wouldn't be that outrageous. The DS9 Documentary "What We Left Behind" that was recently released on blu-ray managed to raise nearly $650,000 on IndieGoGo. Imagine how much fans might contribute if it were guaranteed the remaster would happen provided the goal was reached.

@  TheMightyMol... : (20 August 2019 - 04:10 AM)

Let me call on my friend Dr Rockso, the Rock 'n Roll Clown. (He does cocaine.)

@  Nutjob R/T : (20 August 2019 - 12:48 AM)

New crowdfunding project: We need to get enough nose candy for the Paramount execs to keep 'em up long enough to get DS9 squeezed out

@  TM2-Megatron : (19 August 2019 - 04:36 PM)

They're hideously cheap. I'm just glad some decision maker in the upper echelons stayed high as a kite for long enough for us to get TOS, TNG and TAS on blu-ray

@  Rycochet : (19 August 2019 - 04:16 PM)

Paramount are kinda cheap and Ds9 isn't popular enough for them to go all out on a remaster.

@  TM2-Megatron : (19 August 2019 - 03:37 PM)

Or hell, they could just shorten a season of Discovery by 2-3 episodes and that'd pay for the DS9 remaster in full (assuming the 8 to 8.5 million per episode for Discovery that was reported a while back is accurate)

@  TM2-Megatron : (19 August 2019 - 03:32 PM)

Redoing some of the more simple effects like phasers and transporters and whatnot (basically what they've already had practice doing for TNG)

@  TM2-Megatron : (19 August 2019 - 03:30 PM)

They could scan and rebuild the film elements, and then upscale the original CGI only (provided it still exists as separate footage)

@  Dekafox : (19 August 2019 - 02:33 PM)

Basically its in the same situation as DS9 IIRC with loss of models and how the CGI was applied to the existing footage.

@  Dekafox : (19 August 2019 - 02:32 PM)

Not gonna happen unless they recreate all the CGI from scratch, unfortunately. Or just upscale the broadcast masters, which would be basically pointless.

Everyone quickly gets sick of flubbing the name and collectively agree to just call the combiner "Roadworks"

@  Sabrblade : (18 August 2019 - 09:34 PM)

For some reason, I've always wanted to see a "Menastator", all five Stunticons and all six Constructicons in an 11-piece combiner.

@  Maximus Ambus : (18 August 2019 - 01:35 PM)

Dunno what we'd call a Megatron combiner, we almost got a Megastator in IDW but nothing in Combiner Wars.

@  Paladin : (18 August 2019 - 01:30 PM)

somehow read that as "Megachronic." wonder if Decepticons get the munchies...

@  TheMightyMol... : (18 August 2019 - 11:30 AM)

Skywarp can barely form a coherent sentence half the time.

@  Maximus Ambus : (18 August 2019 - 11:24 AM)

If Cyclonus combines into Galvatronus, does Skywarp form Megatronic?

@  Pennpenn : (18 August 2019 - 09:12 AM)

There's something weird about starting to type Good Omens into a media store's search bar and having it come up with Queen's greatest hits compliations.

@  Tm_Silverclaw : (18 August 2019 - 12:07 AM)

Well then they need to re-release Vector Prime. :D Of course I would accept Vector Prime Headmaster with Alpha Trion as the head.

@  unluckiness : (18 August 2019 - 12:05 AM)

That said, the bendy sword is ridiculous.

@  unluckiness : (18 August 2019 - 12:05 AM)

I dunno, the old one is still pretty good by modern standards and the clunkiness is somewhat in-character.

@  Tm_Silverclaw : (17 August 2019 - 08:37 PM)

We need a new vector prime

I was never a huge fan of MOTU, but I wanted to share a great MOTU experience I had this weekend.  My family has Movie night on the weekends, we basically pick a movie that we think the son (10) would like, and it usually is a good pick.  Last week we all watched the 1987 classic Masters of the Universe.  I can really understand why it was hated then by fans (it was different in theme, lore, history and feel from the cartoon), but my son was TOTALLY entertained.  As a film for kids it was very effective.  He was able to jump into an expansive universe without the need for any context and he had a great time.

 

Another thing I noticed, that film did not age badly.  The effects were immersive and well done, the acting of the heroes was passable, and it was a pretty well structured movie with good pacing.  The thing that I under-remembered was Langella's performance as Skelator.  This is a classically trained "serious" actor.  Such a role should have been far below him.  But he completely immersed himself in the role.  He was so over the top and unapologetic, he was a blast to watch.  Some actors do a part because "they have to, but he actually looks like he is having fun with it.

 

BTW, the movie night has been a huge success, he is now a huge fan of Secret of NIMH, Princess Bride, and the Last Starfighter.  I need to find a copy of Willow and MIB, he may like these (my little nerd, I am so proud).

Did Last Starfighter with my son last summer and he loved it despite the badly aged FX. I'll have to try the MoTU film with him.


-ZacWilliam, I'd argue there's about 1/3rd of a really great MoTU film there from what I remember.

Oh, I do not claim that any of these films were perfect, they were deeply flawed on certain levels, but what they did right, they did really well.  The entire package was entertaining enough to not notice the flaws.  Great example of this:

 

We watched MOTU and a day later he asked me "If they saved Eternia and used the key to do that AND actually use the key to make the past better for them, they needed to find the key.  If they went back in time to prevent the parents from dying, why would they even be in the cemetery in the beginning to find the key?"

I said "well because...SWORDS and LASERS and FIRE...and Sorceress".  Being fair, that is a pretty major plot hole, but I have to let it go to enjoy the rest of the film.  My retcon explanation is "Franks portrayal of Skelator was so powerful, it created a temporal bubble that repeated the loop so that performance would not vanish into oblivion"

found the new blind box MotU guys at walmart.  Was going to grab one, but they're $13 bucks. Way too expensive for a small, blind box vinyl.

While I don't disagree that they are overpriced, These aren't your average vinyl figure. They are essentially fully articulated figures on a smaller scale with SD dimensions.

 

And for what it's worth, they are pretty dang fun.

I refuse to buy blind box at that price.  Now, were they clearly marked, that'd be one thing, but I'm not going to blow $13 on a maybe.  That's asinine.

Can't blame you there. It's not a lot of plastic for that price.

 

I wanted them all, and only got four of the boxes to mitigate the chance I'd get a duplicate (plus, I got them from Toys R Us during a BOBO 1/2 sale, so it ended up about $10 a pop). Then I got a pretty good deal on the Trap-Jaw/Beast-Man 2-pack ($30 for the set) after initially getting He-Man, Skeletor, Tri-Klops, and Man-E-Faces from my blinds.

 

I don't honestly know if I would have taken the plunge on these at retail cost. I can tell you that I passed on them when I saw them in the wild at an FYE for $15 each. That's absurd.

Anyone have the 200X Castle Greyskull?

I'm curious how it'd size up to 1:18 scale figures. Seems a bit small for the figures it's meant for and my 1:18 fantasy figs could use more environments to be displayed in.

The new Filmation sculpts look fantastic. Man-at-Arms is outstanding. That being said, this just reminds me of how much I wish we'd been able to get this sub-line in those matte finishes. It just looks so good.

Okay, I will need you to ignore a number of things here, like the fact that I have very few 1:18 scale figures to work with, the unlikely fact that this thing managed to somehow get dustier than an actual abandoned castle and the equally unlikely fact that I managed to lose a part of the castle while setting up the photo.
