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.

@  Tieria Prime : (17 August 2019 - 02:11 AM)

Hi friends

@  Nevermore : (17 August 2019 - 02:05 AM)

So only if Viacom/Paramount has actively trademarked the term "multi-vector assault mode", offered goods or services under that name and has been offering those goods and services in recent years, Hasbro cannot offer goods or services under that name in the same category.

@  Nevermore : (17 August 2019 - 02:04 AM)

And they need to be consistently used on top of that.

@  Nevermore : (17 August 2019 - 02:03 AM)

Even if they are trademarked.

@  Nevermore : (17 August 2019 - 02:02 AM)

Words and terms used in dialogue shouldn't be affected.

@  Nevermore : (17 August 2019 - 02:02 AM)

Also, the trademarks only apply in commerce. You use them to identify goods and services.

@  Ashley : (16 August 2019 - 11:55 PM)

Yeah, you also need to apply for it. They might've never bothered to trademark that.

@  NotVeryKnightly : (16 August 2019 - 08:37 PM)

Trademark affects titles and product names, not every word in writing. For example, DC called their character "Captain Marvel" as recently as 2014.

@  SHIELD Agent 47 : (16 August 2019 - 08:30 PM)

You missed my point. I was addressing the usage of the phrase in dialogue. Hence the quotation marks.

@  Pennpenn : (16 August 2019 - 08:00 PM)

Well, they can anyway, they might just not be able to call it that...

@  SHIELD Agent 47 : (16 August 2019 - 06:54 PM)

It would be awesome for Transformers to have the likes of Overlord and Sky Lynx "engage multi-vector assault mode!"

@  SHIELD Agent 47 : (16 August 2019 - 06:53 PM)

It is a shame that "multi-vector assault mode" is probably trademarked for Star Trek.

@  unluckiness : (15 August 2019 - 10:54 PM)

Only if they manage to boomer-proof it

@  RichardT1977 : (15 August 2019 - 08:16 PM)

@  RichardT1977 : (15 August 2019 - 08:16 PM)

Wouldn't a cybernetic singularity actually remove one or more of the top levels of Maslow's hierarchy?

@  Steevy Maximus : (15 August 2019 - 07:40 PM)

@  TheMightyMol... : (15 August 2019 - 06:26 PM)

Resistance is futile.

@  wonko the sane? : (15 August 2019 - 06:20 PM)

I would be down for a nice cybernetic singularity if it meant we could actually reach the top of maslow's hierarchy.

@  Ashley : (15 August 2019 - 05:44 PM)

I'm pretty sure the origin of the villains in GaoGaiGar was a computer being told to reduce the stress of the population and it's answer was to assimilate everyone.

@  Maximus Ambus : (15 August 2019 - 01:53 PM)

Executions then followed by nano reanimation then cryonic suspension until everyone you know is deactivated for good so you can build happiness in a future society.

@  wonko the sane? : (15 August 2019 - 01:47 PM)

As opposed to the ones that lie already? As a civilization: we're emotional and socially broken. Might as well have the society that at least wants us to be "happy".

@  RichardT1977 : (15 August 2019 - 11:48 AM)

Or you'd have a lot of people lying about their emotional state to avoid being executed.

@  wonko the sane? : (15 August 2019 - 11:18 AM)

That would actually be a massive step up: since there's a LOT of stuff needed to quantify happiness, and it could only be an improvement over the existing governments which actually don't care if you live or die, never mind if you're "happy".

@  RichardT1977 : (15 August 2019 - 10:02 AM)

Happiness is mandatory, citizen. Failure to be happy is treason. Have a nice daycycle!

@  unluckiness : (15 August 2019 - 01:46 AM)

Maslow's hierarchy of needs

@  MrBlud : (14 August 2019 - 09:46 PM)

Humanity is pretty forgiving if you take care of its basic needs. "Freedom" and "Privacy" don't have much hold when you can't afford food, shelter, or medicine.

@  TheMightyMol... : (14 August 2019 - 03:29 PM)

Something something peace through tyranny.

@  Maximus Ambus : (14 August 2019 - 02:43 PM)

You probably will have a house, AI overseers will crack down on stress, poverty, homelessness and human administration.

@  Rycochet : (14 August 2019 - 02:36 PM)

The bad news is they'll probab;y be made and operated by Amazon so will record every single thing you do and transmit it to their datacenters so theycan have human operators sift through it and laugh at footage of you dancing in your socks or having intercourse.

@  NotVeryKnightly : (14 August 2019 - 02:32 PM)

What if I don't have a house by then?

@  wonko the sane? : (14 August 2019 - 02:32 PM)

If the robot will do the cleaning, I don't care if it's mandatory. I'm sick of moping floors.

@  Maximus Ambus : (14 August 2019 - 02:05 PM)

humanoid service robots, one for every house in the west. ETA: 2050. household robots will be mandatory.

@  Rycochet : (14 August 2019 - 02:03 PM)

All I know is it'd be tragic if those evil robots win. I know she can beat them.

@  TheMightyMol... : (14 August 2019 - 01:53 PM)

Big ones? Small ones? Ones as big as your head?

@  Rycochet : (14 August 2019 - 12:22 PM)

The robots are pink. Someone call Yoshimi!

@  wonko the sane? : (14 August 2019 - 11:11 AM)

Yeah, could you maybe be more specific? Are they good robots? Bad ones? Do they just want to take our jobs? We need more information to work out how we feel about them.

@  Benbot : (14 August 2019 - 11:03 AM)

Is it because of lack of demand, lack of people being able to log on and buy it, or people just dropping the line all together, increased production?

Probably increased production and the fact that he's included in the subscriptions, not as many people are running to the site at noon to buy him.

I'm dropping this line wholesale once my subscription runs out at the end of the year.

My list of reasons is long-ish, but off the top of my head, and in no particular order:

1) QC issues (What up, Roboto & King Hssss?)

2) Matty/DR no longer using UPS for delivery of merchandise for subscribers after this year.

3) Running out of characters I have even a modicum of interest owning as figure(s)

4) Mattel's playing fast & loose with the subscription "rules".

When I buy a subscription alledging that I will be getting "ALL" figs. that are not reissues but then you change it to not include She-Ra 2.0, well, you aren't going to win any points with me.

5) DR's phone reps basically not understanding a lick of English.

As I like to say, they speak it but they don't understand it, IYKWIM.

Apparently I'm way behind because at Wondercon they announced Leech (who looks awesome) and Hurricane Hordak. Hordak will supposedly have vac-metal armor (the figure looks very uninteresting to me). Leech definitely has some 2002 influence in him.

I don't know how to feel about Hurricane Hordak.

On the one hand he was the Hordak we had as kids, so I have NOSTALGIA.

On the other hand I never liked him as a kid because I always thought that spinner army made him look really dumb.

I'll definetly be buying the Swamp Thing, Voltron, and Queen Marlena & Cringer at the show. Kilowog is a maybe.

I'd like the Stay-Puft GB exclusive but like HTS's Galactus last year and this year's Death Star 12-pack and MU Sentinel I think it is size prohibitive as far as shipping it back to N.Y. Plus the price isn't exactly low at $70.00USD.

I might buy the Polly Pocket/She-Ra 3-pack depending on price and size.

As a lapsed Barbie doll collector I'll be skipping the Carol Ferris/Barbie doll.

I'll have to see what else they have in store but I'm actually more excited for the Voltron and Swamp Thing figs. than I am for the MOTUC item(s) at this point.

I'll also be buying the Franken Berry Hot Wheels and possibly the BTTF one as well, depending on size.

At $35.00USD I'm going to assume it is larger than a regular Hot Wheels vehicle.

I mean Franken Berry is only $20.00 and that comes in "premium" packaging so one has to wonder what makes the BTTF item $15.00 more.

Cringer looks fine to me. Then again I'm not a modern MotU collector. (would be if they were in stores...) I LOVE thd idea of doing The queen as both Queen and Flash Gordon Astronaut. That was inspired.

Voltron really doesn't impress me. I want to like him because I like Voltron but its too simple looking and primary colored for me. Bandai is looking ok with Thundercats but Mattel has yet to show me the Voltron.


ZacWilliam, is it wrong that the POP Doll set looks coolest?

Hum.

I'll probably get Marlena and Cringer. Superboy in cloning chamber looks cool, although I don't really collect that line.

I'll get Voltron because i'm a huge Voltron whore, but I agree with Zac in that the simplicity and lack of detailing is a turn-off.

I'm disappointed in the lack of articulation in the GL Movie Masters figures as compared to regular DCUC ones. I'm also a bit nervous about Swamp Thing's "internal skeleton" and how that will limit articulation. I might get ST.

So far though, there's nothing i'm seeing that's really lighting my fire.

It really reminds me of the Robot Chicken Voltron from their first season "You got Served" dance-off bit. It wouldn't be surprising considering they've already established that relationship but maybe they decided to downplay it a bit.

I think Cringer looks perfect honestly after all, he did grow quite a bit when he became Battle Cat. I'm also glad the Matty Collector version of Marlena comes in her space helmet outfit vs the dress.
