Batmans is more fun to say but i think, sadly, its batmen

@  Bass X0 : (23 February 2017 - 02:36 PM)

Is the plural of Batman Batmans or Batmen?

Anyone else excited about that Prime 1 Studio BW Megatron? It looks amazing

@  unitremover : (22 February 2017 - 09:36 PM)

I haven't been up there in a while but one of the Walmarts around here still has AOE deluxes out. Some of the CVSs do too.

@  wonko the sane? : (22 February 2017 - 09:34 PM)

It's been the same thing in local stores for ages up here.

@  BlackMax : (22 February 2017 - 09:33 PM)

One near me is the same - I swear they have over forty Deluxes there, all from many months ago.

@  Telly : (22 February 2017 - 07:43 PM)

my walmart finally filled those empty tr pegs. and of course its a mix of waves one and 2 (wave 1.5?)

My Walmart had a Generations Rattrap hanging for the past 2 and a half years, and in trying to clearance it, inadvertently marked down the entire Generations Deluxe assortment.

@  Steevy Maximus : (22 February 2017 - 07:09 PM)

A shelf warmer's ultimate revenge: being around long enough that in trying to clearance it...the store marks down the entire SKU!

@  NotVeryKnightly : (22 February 2017 - 07:59 AM)

Eh, he would've gotten beaten up if the government sent just about anyone.

@  Pennpenn : (22 February 2017 - 07:56 AM)

Regardless, literally everything I've ever seen (and a lot on tfwiki) attributes Megatron's slide into violence to Whirl beating him up while in custody. Maybe not like flicking a switch but Megatron's line "You made me. You taught me words were weightless without force" kinda spells it out.

@  NotVeryKnightly : (22 February 2017 - 07:38 AM)

I'm not sure if there even was a specific turning point, but he didn't seem kill happy yet when he was with Terminus, and that was after Whirl beating him up.

@  NotVeryKnightly : (22 February 2017 - 07:24 AM)

It was also before any sort of uprising or him actually doing much of anything.

@  Pennpenn : (22 February 2017 - 07:20 AM)

I mean, the whole thing didn't start as "the great war". It was an uprising that eventually morphed into a the war.

@  Pennpenn : (22 February 2017 - 07:17 AM)

Yeah, of course it's before the war, Whirl beating Megatron while he was in custody was the tipping point that made Megatron turn violent.

@  NotVeryKnightly : (22 February 2017 - 05:12 AM)

But the thing with Whirl was before he started the war.

@  Pennpenn : (22 February 2017 - 03:28 AM)

Like so many awful things in that universe, it's basically Whirl's fault.

@  Telly : (22 February 2017 - 12:51 AM)

for about 10 minutes. then he got all kill happy

@  SHIELD Agent 47 : (21 February 2017 - 10:27 PM)

Wouldn't IDW Megatron kind of count since his main reason for instigating the Great War was to overthrow the Functionist social order?

@  Black Hat : (21 February 2017 - 04:05 PM)

(I haven't read IDW at all please don't sue me)

@  Black Hat : (21 February 2017 - 04:04 PM)

And much as it showed off her nice *ahem* figure, I really hope that stays buried in the Fred Wolf toon. But I do hope Mikey at least stays with the Chucks for a bit at least.

I really hope the Kusari-Gama are official or make it to the end stage. They aren't a major change, they are still Nunchuaku but a bit more threatening. And its honestly better then a Grappling Hook.

............Kusarigama are nothing like Nunchaku.

At all.

Nor is it usually as practical in really close quarters combat, like the turtles are oft to do.

I'm not sure I like it being CGI, but it still looks like it could be good. There's still no way it can beat the awesomeness of the 2003 cartoon.
It's time to bring the crunch!

Either way. The Kusarigama was used to entrap an opponent's weapon, get in close, and gut them. It's not a weapon you can effectively used against multiple opponents, or opponents armed with more than one weapon. The Nunchaku though were made to just beat the stuffing out of someone. And when used correctly, are fairly effective. If they want to change the weapon, the best thing to go with is a good pair of Tonfa. Now those things are brutal!

I could have sworn he at least sported it in the movies and the 2K3 series. I know some of the figures have featured it.

Anyway, I look forward to whatever they have planned, especially if they have free reign over all aspects of the property.

Didn't mikey use a Kusarigama in the final few seasons of the original cartoon?

Frankly, it makes SENSE. If they all use CQB weapons, then they lack a ranged response. One of them being dedicated to tying up the bad guys so the others can get in close to maximise their time is perfect strategic sense.

Of course, if the NickToons show draws as much inspiration from the Fred Wolf cartoon as they say, we might end up with robot Foot Soldiers, so that point may not matter so much.

One can only hope. The 2003 series got accuracy to the comics out of it's system, so bringing back robots that allow the turtles to not have to hold back, like in the movies and the 2003 series, would be nice.

I recall a lot of Foot ninja using that weapon in the Mirage-like TMNT cartoon... and somehow, Leonardo was always able to easily cut through the chain with his swords. Mikey's will be better made from adamantium. icon-hotrod.gif
