@  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...

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?

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

@  Paladin : (17 August 2019 - 03:59 PM)

just don't leave Cybertron Vector Prime out in the sun or his wings will melt.

@  SHIELD Agent 47 : (17 August 2019 - 03:17 PM)

@Nevermore Duly noted.

@  Rycochet : (17 August 2019 - 02:12 PM)

I have three Cybertron Vector Primes, wouldn't throw them around though. I love that design too much,

@  TheMightyMol... : (17 August 2019 - 02:03 PM)

I'm just picturing someone throwing a pile of Vector Prime toys around. I don't know why.

@  Rycochet : (17 August 2019 - 01:42 PM)

Multi Vector Assault mode is what they go into when they think anyone's even slightly infringing on their IP.

@  Ashley : (17 August 2019 - 02:30 AM)

They MIGHT have done it for Star Trek Online ships, but even if they have that'd be a fairly specific category.

I think Cringer looks perfect honestly after all, he did grow quite a bit when he became Battle Cat.

Can't find a screencap with Cringer & Marlena, but compare his side with Adam here to his size with Marlena in the MC picture:

So maybe a little smaller than the animation, but not enough difference to look wrong to me. Cringer should be a bit smaller IMO as long as its not too small cause it makes the Battle Cat disguise better.

Wow, that's a pretty cool exclusive with Queen Marlena. Cringer is a bit small, but that's understandable. I guess they had to sacrifice scale to keep the cost down.

Eh, yeah - he is a little smaller than he should be. I guess I figure a dedicated Cringer is something we never would see otherwise though and he's as big as they could make him within their budget.

They found the budget for a big yellow gorilla who'd never been in any form of MotU fiction. Meanwhile, Cringer's a core character...

Well, look at the ghost image below, with Cringer's head & shoulders scaled to around the same as the with-Cringer Marlena. And as the other caps below (from "Night of the Shadowbeasts") show, Cringer wasn't much smaller in MYP.

Most of the big yellow gorilla was reused for the Shadow Beast, though, so they were able to profit off the tooling twice. Meanwhile, Cringer is a cheapo one-time pack-in with no particular reuse potential. I also think his size is being misjudged a bit due to how low the toy holds its head compared to the height of its shoulders.

Yeah - he is undersized, but he's also cowering significantly whereas in the pic with Adam he's at least standing up straight. The toy still wouldn't come up to her waist with straight legs, but it'd be closer.

Well, sure. The former is a big ax-wielding gorilla warrior and the latter is Battle Cat's nondescript secret identity.

Believe me, I'd have loved enough size and articulation to pull off Cringer's "covering his eyes with his paws" look, but I can't fault Mattel at all for not wanting to devote such tooling to him.

I'm excited for Catra. I wonder if Mattel will be wary in selling more Princess of Power figures since Catra took a whole 30 hours to sell out rather than 3 hours. What with her likely being the second most sought after character from that line besides She-Ra/Adora (who sold out real quick).

I think(hope) they are comfortable with this. Maybe they've finally dialed in the right production numbers for going forward in which things last a little longer but still sell out in a reasonable time frame. Even something that takes a week to sell out is still a sell-out for them. I can't believe they'd start to worry unless something was up there for a full month or longer.

I ordered her the day after she was put up. With DotM getting released on monday, and all the effort I did to get anything on that day, I forgot all about her/

Didn't help when I ordered her on Tuesday that I was reminded that one of the nastier, mean spirited and just mean board posters here shares a name with her function almost turned me away from doing the order.
