better than the current ones at least

@  Rycochet : (26 February 2017 - 09:08 AM)

90s Nicktoons were awful.

@  LBD "Nyt... : (26 February 2017 - 08:16 AM)

Yeah, I'd get really pumped to watch it and the other Nicktoons.

@  lastmaximal : (26 February 2017 - 08:04 AM)

You digdug?

@  LBD "Nyt... : (26 February 2017 - 07:40 AM)

Hate watching stuff like that.

@  LBD "Nyt... : (26 February 2017 - 07:40 AM)

Also, I digged Doug. Mostly for the ancillary characters, though. Doug himself is one of those characters who gets into situations that make YOU feel embarrassd. Like Fred Savage on The Wonder Years.

I remember Today's Special. The Toronto part was something of a revelation from my wife and her family when I came here.

@  ShadowMan024 : (26 February 2017 - 02:34 AM)

In hindsight, I'm pretty sure Miss Frizzle was a Time Lord.

I got into science because of Magic School Bus.

@  TM2-Megatron : (25 February 2017 - 11:25 PM)

Anyone else remember Puttnam's Prairie Emporium? Not sure if it aired outside Canada

@  TM2-Megatron : (25 February 2017 - 11:21 PM)

Today's Special was a favourite of mine. Some of it was actually filmed at a department store here in Toronto

@  PlutoniumBoss : (25 February 2017 - 10:34 PM)

Eureka! and Start Here were awesome too.

@  The Doctor Who : (25 February 2017 - 09:59 PM)

I remember watching Newton's Apple on PBS. That's where I learned about thermal insulation layers and why things change temperature faster when you blow on them.

@  MrBlud : (25 February 2017 - 09:51 PM)

Today's Special was my jam!

@  PlutoniumBoss : (25 February 2017 - 09:48 PM)

Pff. I remember Pinwheel and Today's Special.

@  Paladin : (25 February 2017 - 09:47 PM)

my first Nick show was "Eureka's Castle."

@  ShadowMan024 : (25 February 2017 - 07:58 PM)

And Rocko's Modern Life was WAAAAAAAAAAAAAY better.

@  ShadowMan024 : (25 February 2017 - 07:57 PM)

Hey Arnold! was better.

@  Echowarrior : (25 February 2017 - 06:42 PM)

And then bought out by Disney.

@  Echowarrior : (25 February 2017 - 06:42 PM)

It certainly wasn't a terrible show. I think it was just overshadowed by its contemporaries.

@  TheMightyMol... : (25 February 2017 - 06:19 PM)

I mean, it's not like it was bad, it was just kinda....there. Not especially memorable.

@  TheMightyMol... : (25 February 2017 - 06:18 PM)

That requires us to remember that Doug happened, though.

@  TriBlurr : (25 February 2017 - 01:04 PM)

Just send him to whatever world the Cartoon Doug took place in. Lots of purple people there

@  unluckiness : (25 February 2017 - 03:55 AM)

It's gonna go hungry after eating that mind-control guy

@  Waspinator : (25 February 2017 - 03:49 AM)

It's eating purple people and it sure is fine.

@  TheMightyMol... : (25 February 2017 - 02:27 AM)

It's a one-eyed, one-horned, flying, purple people eater!

@  Pennpenn : (25 February 2017 - 12:43 AM)

But it's purple?

@  Noideaforaname : (25 February 2017 - 12:28 AM)

Allspark's just a mean green mother from outer space, and it's BAD!

@  ShadowMan024 : (25 February 2017 - 12:10 AM)

Shut yo' mouth!

@  Patchouli Kn... : (24 February 2017 - 11:19 PM)

The Allspark is one bad mother...

@  Foffy the Sheep : (24 February 2017 - 10:09 PM)

My Allspark has never heard of a mother.

@  BlackMax : (24 February 2017 - 09:28 PM)

My mother has never heard of an Allspark.

@  The Doctor Who : (24 February 2017 - 08:54 PM)

This is your mother on Allspark drugs.

@  Bass X0 : (24 February 2017 - 08:42 PM)

This is your Allspark. This is drugs. This is your Allspark on drugs.

No, this is Patrick.

Does Blurr from the Drift mold do it for you?

I thought Blurr's new head looks better than his original head.

Just because you can't win doesn't mean you stop working.

It's got a bit of a Hermes/Mercury thing going on, which definitely works for the character. Especially since the God was a courier, as well.

Ugh, I despise the shoulder pads turned up on that mold. It makes his already-proportional arms look ridiculously long.

Definitely not Blurr enough for me. I have no attachment to Drift at all, but I still consider that mold to be definitively him and not at all Blurr.

QUOTE(Bass X0 @ Feb 3 2011, 07:59 PM) <{POST_SNAPBACK}>
Its fine. If Drift didn't exist, I doubt an Earth mode for Blurr would have looked much different to the Generations Blurr that we got.

I think that if Blurr got his own mold, even if they did insist on giving him an Earth mode, his vehicle mode would be something not quite this different from his G1 mode. (Maybe. Considering the mode Galvatron got stuck with, maybe not.)

And I have to say...he really doesn't do it for me as a stand-in. Blurr was a sleek cybertronian sportscar. This Blurr is burly. He's clunky. Other than the head and the color, what really identifies him in a significant way to the G1 figure? Nothing that I can much see.


Nobody looks like Drift does. Yet Drift still had to be repainted. Head and color is the only thing that would identify whoever was the repaint if it wasn't Blurr.

RiD Hot Shot or W.A.R.S. Sure there'd be no particular resemblance in robot mode, but there isn't with Blurr either, and at least it makes a lot more sense thematically.

QUOTE
Still, when a character reformats their Cybertronian mode into an Earth mode, you expect there to be changes.

Classics Hot Rod says the changes don't have to be drastic. With any luck, Arcee (assuming she doesn't get to keep a Cybertronian mode) will be an example of the same principle.
Not that any Earth car is enough like Blurr's alt-mode to pull the same thing off with him, but that's exactly why he should just keep his Cybertronian mode.

Thanks man! I can't say that I can't wait until I get home, but I am looking forward to putting my Blurr like this to further differentiate him from Drift.

When pics of the shoulder pads turned up started making the rounds, I thought for sure that was how I was going to display him, but it's even more ridiculously long in person. Very gorilla-like.

This alt mode doesn't bother me at all especially since the car colors are done so well. It's just the head, hip armor, and shoulder kibble that don't feel quite G1-ish to me.

Not particulary. I wish they did Blurr in his original form.

I really like Gen. Blurr. Having him bodily mimic Drift makes a bit of sense, particularly since this is clearly based on IDW Blurr and they sort of became buddies. I just wish the mold's legs had a slightly better range of motion. Of the Blurr toys I have, only a modded Animated Blurr can pull off a really good running pose.

He makes a great IDW Blurr, but a poor G1 Blurr.

I don't really see him as a Blurr. To me, he's just Drift's twin brother w/ a sniper rifle. Forgetting that he's Blurr and treating him like a brand-new character let's me appreciate his awesomeness completely unhindered.
