IT'S WATCHING US

@  Telly : (23 April 2017 - 03:34 PM)

yeah, at the time im posting this, theres a "2" next to it and me and fruitloop are shown to be the 2 people reading it

@  Telly : (23 April 2017 - 03:33 PM)

i think it just means that someone is reading the shoutbox

@  Fruitloop Mu... : (23 April 2017 - 03:25 PM)

Re The Rise of Cobra: I like bad movies and action sequences involving elite ninjas, so I watched / fast-forwarded through it on Netflix a couple of years ago.

@  Fruitloop Mu... : (23 April 2017 - 03:23 PM)

Can anyone tell me why the Shoutbox has a notification (a "1") when I login sometimes? I scroll through and don't see anything addressed to me. What does it mean?

@  ▲ndrusi : (23 April 2017 - 01:33 PM)

I miss the 2000s when my local stores got new toys more than once a year.

@  NotVeryKnightly : (23 April 2017 - 01:09 PM)

I mean, it might be hard to not know about something before release at all, but the degree of familiarity that you described is only attainable if you intentionally seek things out.

@  NotVeryKnightly : (23 April 2017 - 12:59 PM)

That's at least partially your own fault. The "in motion" part sounds like you even watched videos, which require conscious effort, unlike pictures that might be hard to even avoid.

@  Bass X0 : (23 April 2017 - 12:22 PM)

I miss the 80s where the first time I ever saw Transformers toys was on the toy shelves and hadn't already saw the toy from every angle and in motion several months beforehand. It made seeing a toy in the store something very special to me that I can't recapture now.

@  Evac : (23 April 2017 - 12:14 PM)

I could see Generations becoming a TRU exclusive line, now that I think about it.

@  Xellos : (23 April 2017 - 12:14 PM)

Also, Generations weathered AOE, and the TLK line seems to be short as well, so I think we'll still be seeing some room for Generations.

@  TheMightyMol... : (23 April 2017 - 12:11 PM)

Titans aren't really wide-released anyway. About the only brick-and-mortar chain to reliably carry them is Toys R Us.

@  NotVeryKnightly : (23 April 2017 - 12:08 PM)

Isn't Trypticon still a long way from now?

@  Evac : (23 April 2017 - 11:57 AM)

They wouldn't let a big-ticket item like that get cancelled.

@  Evac : (23 April 2017 - 11:57 AM)

Counter argument: They still haven't released Trypticon.

@  unluckiness : (23 April 2017 - 09:25 AM)

But yeah, not having any big-name media means it's the most likely, although the premiere series packaging might convince retailers to dedicate more shelf space, kinda like SW Black.

@  unluckiness : (23 April 2017 - 09:24 AM)

I'd expect Generations to be the sacrificial lamb since they can't possibly stock RID any less.

@  RichardT1977 : (23 April 2017 - 09:06 AM)

I'm thinking the subline that doesn't have a movie or TV show will be the one on the cutting board.

@  RichardT1977 : (23 April 2017 - 09:05 AM)

Back to TF toys: the question is whether or not retailers will be willing to commit the peg/shelf space for three sublines. And which one will be sidelined if space is at a premium.

@  unluckiness : (23 April 2017 - 06:28 AM)

Revengeance

@  TheMightyMol... : (23 April 2017 - 01:33 AM)

@  LBD "Nyt... : (22 April 2017 - 05:39 PM)

I thought it was... okay. Okay as a movie, kinda fun, but not quite really feeling the G.I. Joe. I heard the sequel fixed that, but I've yet to see it.

@  Daith : (22 April 2017 - 05:26 PM)

Not sure about others but tried too hard to mainstream the idea to the public, making Baroness and the future Cobra Commander Duke's ex fiance and her brother was stupid and convoluted, and the power armor was a bit dumb

@  Telly : (22 April 2017 - 01:38 PM)

"Walls of 'bee". walmart will be changing their name during movie time. they will now be called "walbee"

@  NotVeryKnightly : (22 April 2017 - 12:49 PM)

I'm pretty sure even Hasbro reps have admitted that they went overboard with Bee repaints.

@  Rycochet : (22 April 2017 - 12:34 PM)

Parents/retailers want them, it's cost effective to produce them, therefore they get made. Walls of 'bee may not be what we want to see, but here we are.

@  Bass X0 : (22 April 2017 - 12:29 PM)

That still doesn't justify all the barely repainted Bumblebee and Optimus Prime toys in slightly different shades of their standard color scheme.

@  Rycochet : (22 April 2017 - 12:26 PM)

The movie toylines are a necessary evil at this point, they help us get nice things so I can tolerate them.

@  TheMightyMol... : (22 April 2017 - 12:19 PM)

Eh, I'm more indifferent to the movies than angry.

@  Evac : (22 April 2017 - 12:04 PM)

Also, I highly doubt that. Judging by how some TR stuff hasn't been released yet (including Trypticon) and they're hyping up PotP for next year, what I'm assuming we'll see is Generations, Movieverse and RID/whatever the next cartoon is running alongside each other.

@  Evac : (22 April 2017 - 12:02 PM)

The Sun reported today that a new series of Red Dwarf is being planned for release next year on Dave (a British digital TV channel)

Red Dwarf returns

I'm very much looking forward to this. I liked the three part special they made in 2009 (which I understand was very much hit and miss with a lot of fans) so hopefully this new series will be good too.

Fantastic news! I wonder if they're going to tell the stories in between Season VIII and Back to Earth or if they're going to pick up where Back to Earth left off.

Actually, knowing Red Dwarf, they'll probably jump forward again and have more missing time. icon-fire.gif

While I want to see what happens in seasons nine and ten (which they mention in back to earth.) and I want to see what the new, self confident, proactive lister is capable of (from the end of back to earth.) I... wonder... what missing time? I mean, sure, it been years since they did season eps, and they jumped a lot for back to earth, but they were trapped on a ship in deep space, a ship running entirely on automatic. There was nothing TO do. You want an idea of what happened, I think we should just record a welfare apartment building and splice in a star background in the windows.

Actually: I want them to pick up where they left off of season 8. I know not a lot of people liked it as a whole but the end was pretty epic. Lister, Kat, Kryten and Kachanski escaped into the mirror universe, Rimmer literally facing death on a dissolving red dwarf and the rest of the ship's complement escaping on anything that holds air... I want to see them connect that to back to earth.

I thought Back to Earth was great. I was worried going in, based on what I had heard. It was pretty classic Red Dwarf though, well character wise. The ending was great. I read something, that said if they were doing another series after Back to Earth they would like to do it afterwords with them trying to find Kochansky.
I finally got rid of that big white box.

Dear gods no.

Just let it die already. Back to Earth had maybe one good gag, looking lost and alone. The later seasons were crap. And on rewatching, maybe it's because I've seen some of them too many times, but it's just not that great.

New series, 6 episodes, showing on Dave in 2012 (good bet is approx April). Confirmed cast are Craig Charles, Chris Barrie, Danny John-Jules and Robert Llewellyn. Filming starts November 2011, maybe in front of an audience, maybe not. Likely going to be 30 minute eps in Dave's 40 minute slots (with ads).
Here's hoping it's a corker - I felt let down by Back To Earth, mainly because without a laugh track the show was really... quiet.

Fully agree on it feeling quiet. Overall, I liked Back to Earth in and of itself, but it didn't feel much like dwarf due to part two was just WAY too self aware and smug (which is saying a lot) and left me liking it a lot less after the otherwise great part 1. Part 3 was soso, but not bad.


I just hope we get Kristine back, and we can get Dwayne and Polymorph for fun too icon-fire.gif

Oh god no.. Not another Dave produced Dwarf series. Back to Earth was like a painfully unfunny work of fanfiction put onscreen using actors who didn't seem like they wanted to be there. I don't recall laughing at any point through it and the constant plugs for Dave were excruciating.

I suggested the same thing last night and damn near lost my life for it. There is a dislike of Hattie Hayridge in some of the die hard fans. I mean, understandable since the dynamics works better when its literally an all male crew, besides: norman Lovett's head is basically pure sex.
