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)

(and would that really be a bad thing?)

@  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)

Tomy made some strange selections on their first wave of Tomica releases for the US

@  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)

which ones?

@  Maximus Ambus : (13 August 2019 - 11:24 AM)

Robots are coming....

@  wonko the sane? : (12 August 2019 - 07:14 PM)

So the 200x sub is at 50% with 11 days to go, and people are-of course-panicking.

 

Sigh. The toys look great, but getting worked up into a froth about it over and over just isn't worth it.

BBTS put up a pre-order for Oo-larr.  I'm not really that big on the figure itself, but I do want the "Filmation" head.

Pre-ordered.

 

I think that's the first MOTUC toy I've bought since Madame Razz.

At least she's among the most different looking. 

 

I find 2002 Teela more essential myself, but yeah she's way different looking (even more so say than King Hiss may be).

 

I kinda forgot about her.  Would love to have her and Adam as well, if that were ever possible.

It's hard to say. At this rate, she won't be on eBay because she won't be made (unless they shoehorn her into whatever they plan on for next year or release her and the others individually).

 

That having been said, she seems to be one of the most (if not THE most) well received. If I had to venture a guess, I would say you could be looking at $40-$50 for her. I could be wrong, though.

Yeah, I don't expect the sub to make it, as awesome as those recent reveals have been.  The hardcore MOTU guys that only wanted vintage characters made up a LARGE portion of the fan base, and they ain't buying.  I suspect that unless a couple of online stores have yet to buy their 50+ subs, this is DOA. :/

Well based on what I've read it's doing better than Club Filmation was at the same point in time and that one made it through.

I dunno.  I'm a 200X fan, and I've always been clamouring for more 200X styled releases, but when they rolled this line-up out, all I was really interested in was the head pack and Veena.

 

The rest, I can live without, and if as a 200X fan, I'm left cold by the offerings and not subbing, I can only imagine what the MOTU vintage hard-liners must feel.

Finished reading the thread. A number of broken links ranging from images to the link about the He-Man.org guy not going to a link. Also, Matty Collector is just...wow.

Been looking at some of the stuff on the official Youtube channel and enjoying it. Despite seeing comments from some people in places speaking ill of the series, a lot of the uploaded full episodes aren't bad. Also really enjoying the music.

Queen Veena. I don't recall the episode number off the top of my head, but it's titled "The Power of Grayskull".

 

Yeah, I remember her in it, I just didn't know she and the Sorceress weren't one in the same.

 

Looking at the posts above, I guess not. Where did they ever distinguish them, though? Not disputing it, I just never saw it, and that kinda disappoints me.

There's the episode with Verna and an episode with a young Sorceress. Both in season 2. They were never assumed to be the same, just one was a predecessor to the other.

Implicitly in the show (his amnesia timeline matched up with the Sorceress's face-bandaged lover), and explicitly via the show staff: http://he-man.wikia.com/wiki/Fisto

Looks suprisingly accurate! Odd, I remembered (incorrectly) that he had horns.

 

And then Fisto was Teela's dad.

 

It was left unexplained - could have been Fisto, could have been Duncan. We never saw his face (or his fist). Frankly I'd have been OK with both. Duncan's relationship with his brother was an interesting plot point.

Duncan didn't have amnesia or red hair, and the show creators said it was Fisto.

 

It was weird. There was that one exchange where the Sorceress is all, "something something your daughter Teela" and Duncan replies, "...You mean my ADOPTED daughter Teela" and my wife and I were all, "Ohhhh the Sorceress is implying Teela really IS his biological daughter somehow, neat!" and then no, apparently it was just Duncan being a jerk.

I know all of He-man is a bit goofy/campy, as it should be, but even as a kid I thought Fisto was somehow excessively lame and goofy.
