Nope. Forgot entirely, had to make another trip.

@  TheMightyMol... : (14 December 2019 - 04:04 PM)

Well, did you get water?

@  wonko the sane? : (14 December 2019 - 01:56 PM)

Went to the bathroom, shaved, baked a cake... wait, I only got up to get some water...

@  unluckiness : (14 December 2019 - 09:01 AM)

That's a common misconception. You see compared to the first run, it's a new mold.

@  PlutoniumBoss : (14 December 2019 - 03:27 AM)

Wouldn't that just add packaging authenticity? :D

@  SHIELD Agent 47 : (14 December 2019 - 01:44 AM)

I read a anecdote of someone recently receiving a Glacialord with mold because apparently online stores' warehouses have been sitting on Fansproject products like that for years.

Unlike many of his peers, Morton diesn't seem to have gone out of his way to try and take every drug going so he's aged remarkably well.

@  Donocropolis : (13 December 2019 - 11:39 AM)

Doesn't seem to have been a market for it, which is too bad, because it perfectly does what it sets out to do.

@  Donocropolis : (13 December 2019 - 11:38 AM)

Just opened it and suddenly I'm 9 years old again.

@  Donocropolis : (13 December 2019 - 11:38 AM)

Bought myself Fansproject Glacialord for my birthday during their Black Friday sale.

Morten Harket of A-ha might have aged 35 years on the outside, but his voice is still pretty much the same as it was in 1984. That's some great training and exercise for you.

@  wonko the sane? : (12 December 2019 - 06:59 PM)

Cream cheese has to be on a bagel or crackers.

@  RichardT1977 : (12 December 2019 - 05:31 PM)

(for example: I like Swiss cheese on sandwiches, but find it merely tolerable by itself)

@  RichardT1977 : (12 December 2019 - 05:30 PM)

I mean are you eating it by itself? With crackers? On a sandwich?

@  TheMightyMol... : (12 December 2019 - 04:48 PM)

I would ask, but I'd rather not know.

@  PlutoniumBoss : (12 December 2019 - 03:38 PM)

@  RichardT1977 : (12 December 2019 - 08:48 AM)

They were looking for Skids, but the animators forgot he existed again.

@  Maximus Ambus : (11 December 2019 - 02:58 PM)

He regrouped with Omega Supreme, the Dinobots, Skyfire and the Protectobots.

@  Benbot : (11 December 2019 - 08:20 AM)

Did he get infected with the rest of the Autobots or did he smartly remain off-planet?

@  TheMightyMol... : (11 December 2019 - 05:38 AM)

He really just went to the beach for a couple of days, then called it in. Who's gonna follow up on it?

Anyone really believe Cosmos searched far enough for more ingredient for Corrostop?

@  Nevermore : (11 December 2019 - 03:48 AM)

Oh, we are pretty good at "forgetting" about that. Insisting on sending people home on their overtime, THEN suddenly rushing to do the "backlog" stuff when it's really overdue.

@  wonko the sane? : (10 December 2019 - 05:43 PM)

I've yet to find an organization which didn't have a backlog of "stuff" that needs to be done, but isn't important enough to put on the schedule proper.

@  TM2-Megatron : (10 December 2019 - 05:01 PM)

I'm sure most good/bad (depending on your POV) bosses would be able to find something for the worker to do, in most cases, even if it's spending 8 hours pretending to push a broom around

@  Tm_Silverclaw : (10 December 2019 - 04:39 PM)

Still better than American jobs. x.x;

@  NotVeryKnightly : (10 December 2019 - 11:10 AM)

I'm pretty sure you've already mentioned this before. Especially that last one.

@  Nevermore : (10 December 2019 - 11:05 AM)

That can be fun if you're strong-willed enough. "Hey, you want to go home? Overtime reduction, there's nothing to do..." - "Nah, not today. I want to work."

@  Nevermore : (10 December 2019 - 11:04 AM)

This applies to the field of work as well. Meaning, your boss orders you to show up for a full shift, you show up on time and are absolutely willing to work, and then your boss realizes he has no work for you, your boss has to pay you for a full shift even if you don't work at all.

@  Nevermore : (10 December 2019 - 11:03 AM)

Fun fact: German law has a concept named "default in acceptance", which postulates that if there is a "service for payment" contract, the party that should provide the service correctly offers their due service, and the party that should pay fails to accept the service within due time, the second party still has to pay the first party even if there was no service delivered.

@  wonko the sane? : (08 December 2019 - 10:54 PM)

If it's seasonal affective disorder, check with your doc about vitamin D supplements.

@  Maximus Ambus : (08 December 2019 - 12:46 PM)

That's what I was thinking too, It's the christmas rush and if that's not stressful enough the cold weather can also impact mental health.

@  wonko the sane? : (08 December 2019 - 12:41 PM)

Might be a stupid question given the comment, BUT: have you done anything outside the ordinary lately? Might just be a stress reaction.

@  Maximus Ambus : (08 December 2019 - 12:29 PM)

I've experienced sleep paralysis with ghostly images and similar things in the past and can snap out of it through moving my fingers. I've definitely hallucinated before and members of both sides of the family have had similar experience, some suffered forms of mental instability in two cases schizophrenia.

@  wonko the sane? : (08 December 2019 - 10:47 AM)

So... either a hallucination or night terrors. Are you prone to this kind of thing?

@  Maximus Ambus : (07 December 2019 - 11:55 PM)

It kept repeating until I sat up.

@  Maximus Ambus : (07 December 2019 - 11:54 PM)

I've been up since three and when sheepish I was hallucinating something knocking twice against my bedroom door.

@  TheMightyMol... : (07 December 2019 - 06:58 PM)

Then repaint Apeface and Snapdragon as Transmetal Optimus Primal and Megatron. It's crazy enough to work.

@  PlutoniumBoss : (07 December 2019 - 05:32 PM)

Moral imperative.

@  Nevermore : (07 December 2019 - 05:13 PM)

Wishful thinking, rumor or leak?

@  Maximus Ambus : (07 December 2019 - 04:48 PM)

Snapdragon for Earthrise.

@  TM2-Megatron : (04 December 2019 - 10:22 PM)

Still not the weirdest thing a Nic Cage character has done in a film

@  TheMightyMol... : (04 December 2019 - 04:00 PM)

Couldn't be worse than him pissing fire as Ghost Rider.

My interest is at a real low for this project, because it's going to be the MotU cartoon people "think" they remember, rather than the MotU that actually was.

I think, this is just going to be one massive mistake, unless someone actually tells these people to do a brand new story with no connections to the original series aside from characters and basic personalties, other wise, He-men will simply remain a joke in many people's eyes (largely thanks to Money Super market), besides, I rather see a sequel to the last Masters of the Universe series than to the 80s one.

What I'm worried about is that Mattel will take away the wrong lessons from this should it fail to revitalise the brand, and blame MOTU as a brand rather than their handling of it, just like they did in 2002. The brand is the problem, and not case assortments bogged down with increasingly ugly variants of He-man and Skeletor.

A Turtles Forever-style crossover could be great if it was a smart piece of fun that didn't outstay its welcome.

Trying to pick up after the classic series rather than a She-Ra/Voltron ground-up reimagining does seem like a big mistake given how great those examples are, but if well executed it's entirely possible it will be as good as She-Ra. Theoretically. Heck, in some ways it will be better than She-Ra because Netflix's She-Ra is a superb show that, for my money, is a total failure as a PoP revival. Smith's MOTU seems like it will, if nothing else, have more in common with the source material than Neo-She-Ra does... for better and for worse.

I don't know what Mattel will take away from this, regardless of its level of success. At this point they seem to have an almost Harmonygoldian inability to manage this franchise. Hopefully the show will go well and they can just float along on its coattails.

I wonder if the idea is to stir up brand awareness leading into the movie by releasing something they're sure will have the old fans buzzing... while perhaps trying to take a cue from the Prime Wars Trilogy that Machinima did.

Transformers Classics The new He-Man cartoon continues from the Marvel US Transformers He-Man and the Masters of the Universe series, and does not include the Marvel UK Transformers The New Adventures of He-Man stories or any subsequently published stories.

I most certainly feel that Neo She-Ra works better as its own separate self, rather than actually trying to be She-Ra.

Having MOTU Revelation continue on from MOTU 02 does seem like it would have been the better choice, rather than the lighter, goofier original. Its more serious sword and sorcery/technoscience blend would likely flow better into what is very likely to be a far darker story than Classic MOTU ever did.

If we're lucky, this will be closer to the tonal shift TFTM is to the cartoon, rather than the grimdark misfire of the Prime Wars. And it should have good voice acting.

IMO there's nothing from the old She-ra worth keeping that the new show doesn't keep. Anything it's reinterpreted and reimagined is absolutely the better for it.

-ZacWilliam, I have to imagine the same would hold for the right team reinventing He-man in the same style.

Not only that but since they've said it's going to be "Anime", I'd think it will look more like 200X anyway.

I just can't get behind the total absence of secret identity. "Only a few others share this secret" is just a huge part of this jive for me, and without that it doesn't read as She-Ra to me at all - though again, that leaves it as just "A really excellent show".

"Only a few others share this secret" transitioning via plot happenings into "busted, and now post-secret", like the DC stuff, I could live with. And I wouldn't be surprised if we see something like that in, uh, Masters of the View Askewniverse.

I've seen some speculation online that the Teela aspect of Revelation might see her discovering she's related to the Sorceress/might become the next Sorceress. That could be interesting.

I was listening to the audio from the announcement panel this morning on the way to work (it's the most recent episode of Kevin's postcast Fat Man Beyond).  It's very ambiguous as to whether this is an actual continuation of the original show.  They said things like "the stories you always wanted to see" and "the fight scenes you always wished you could see."  The animation studio is taking the lead on the action scenes.  The writers are literally writing "fighty fighty" in the script where a fight should happen.

 

It sounds like it's being made by people who are fans of MOTU and understand it.  I'm curious to see if that translates into a good show.
