You know that Patton Oswalt knew he'd made it as an entertainer when people stopped asking him whether he was Pat or Oswald and where was the other one.

@  Shrug : (21 October 2017 - 10:20 AM)

He does lots of voice work, but it was young Oswalt in my dream, so I guess it was the King of Queens edition.

@  Bass X0 : (21 October 2017 - 09:56 AM)

I only know about Patton Oswalt from Transformers.

We won because Ellen kept going up the other teams and telling them to not worry about their hair looking silly in their helmets.

@  Shrug : (21 October 2017 - 09:10 AM)

I had a dream I was in a team kick scooter competition and the 3 people on my team were Ellen DeGeneres, Patton Oswalt, and my third grade bus driver.

Gaaaah, Hasbro. My Transformers Tribute Optimus Prime (from the two-pack with Orion Pack) has a misassembled part that has another part connected to it via a metal pin...

@  Robowang : (19 October 2017 - 05:22 PM)

I just know they have the same ID number in the computer as deluxes, so the search feature on the website is useless.

@  Robowang : (19 October 2017 - 05:21 PM)

No idea on price.

@  Shrug : (19 October 2017 - 05:14 PM)

Oh thanks. I just assumed it was a special item. Does that mean it'll be the $18ish the normal Deluxes are or can Walgreens price them separately?

@  Robowang : (19 October 2017 - 05:11 PM)

Before you go hunting at Walgreens, know that the Clone two-pack number is identical to the regular deluxe number. An in-stock listing for the clones likely just means they have deluxes in stock.

I'm not saying they're the same. They're clearly not. But members of both parties do receive large sums of money from telecom companies. When it comes to net neutrality, the issue isn't solely bipartisan so much as it's Old Politicians that don't understand technology.  Republicans do seem intent on making it worse intentionally though.

@  Paladin : (18 October 2017 - 10:40 AM)

So before this falls off the first page and is lost to all time, do we have any word on when the show will be back?

February 5, according to some sources.

In this latest episode, we get another element taken from the 2003 cartoon: Bishop being affiliated with the Earth Protection Force. Only in this version, he's now an ambassador working with the EPF, rather than leading it like 2003 Bishop did. Apparently, Earth and Dimension X signed a peace treaty between each other at some previous point offscreen.

You misunderstand. I was referring to his now being affiliated with the EPF in this episode, which is new. Before, he was only working with his own kind, the Utrom.

For me personally it's been some bad experiences with Nickelodeon UK and even the US side. When you actually get insulted to your face it does turn you away from something. Add in the various leaks about how Nick isn't very nice to their talent and my interest just plummeted on a reboot I was lukewarm on anyway.

 

Though I do know someone who works on the show as an animator, who sounds to be having fun at least.

To be a little fair, none of it was depicted that graphically, with the injury inflicted in a mostly unseen manner that focused more on Tiger Claw's facial reaction to it rather than to the injury itself. And the result of said injury (that Randy mentioned) didn't look horrific or too disturbing. If anything, it looked more like a Halloween prop by the particular way it was rendered in the CG art style.

Man this show has been shit for a while.

Like ever since season 2 or whatever.

I heard they got a new show runner...which makes sense because teen titans never got this bad.

The tigerclaw vs the turtles fight was the GOAT for the series.

So just looked at the TMNT lineup at Toyfair over at Toyark

 

And oddly there really isn't too many spoilers for the upcoming season at all. In fact the majority of the line is redecos of older figures and oddball sublines like the 90's series. One I'm sure is unconnected to the show are two waves of Turtles cosplaying WWE stars, which I believe the first wave is already out at retail. They were about the same size as the 90's movie turtles that came out last year. Of the new stuff we will spoiler tag

 

Spoiler

 

But onward to episode discussion. Requiem aired and the penultimate episode of the season went out with a bang....if we hadn't played this card 4 times already :rolleyes

Essentially Baxter perfects the mutagen Formula and Super Shredder takes down the entire team of the good guys from the Mutanimals to the Bros, Casey, April and of course the duel between Splinter and Super Shredder.

 

Spoiler

 

If anything the entire episode feels like we are doing this again? Really? I think the best part of the episode was the end of our Chris Bradford and his 2Ruff Krew season at the beginning of the episode where they pull a great laugh on the red sky seasons of the original series.Still with the direction we are going I think we might be in our penultimate season. I looked at Wikipedia and thankfully season 5 is only about a month off from the 4ths finale but I'm not sure where they will head after the current storyline.

Tons of TMNT references in this episode.

 

The monster that Chris Bradford fights in his cartoon's final episode is the mutant form of Carter from the 80's cartoon's Red Sky era.

 

Shredder falls into a garbage truck that Casey activates with a "whoops" like in the first live action movie from the 90's.

 

Shredder sticks his hand out of the garbage truck roof in the same manner as 2003 Shredder stuck his own hand out of the water tower rubble in "The Shredder Strikes, Part 2".

 

The Wolf building is an obvious nod to Fred Wolf, and it has a water tower on it, which was what Splinter used to crush the Shredder in the 2003 series during their first battle.

 I mentioned the first two earlier some in the Spoiler and some vaguely as not to give it all away.

 

Actually the Hand coming from the rubble could be more dated back to the end of TMNT II:: The Secret of the Ooze, especially since Super Shredder is the hand bursting from the rubble at that point. But In the latter two they actually do survive (Discounting any Next Mutations on the movies side)

 

And the Wolf building has appeared in the show before. Pretty sure it was where they first fought Shredder in season 1. Maybe the same episode that Fishface and Dogpound were mutated but I'd have to get back to you on that. But I know it's already been on the show.
