Never had any of the Masters Of The Universe toys but I did like the highly detailed and articulated look of them. I wanted Hasbro to produce an equally highly detailed and articulated range of toys based on Transformers Pretenders outer shells from the 1980s. Although they wouldn't be Pretenders with an inner transformable robot and characters like Thunderwing would have vehicle kibble but would not be able to transform.

@  Steevy Maximus : (26 June 2017 - 08:57 PM)

Still sad that Mattel didn't even take Neca up on the offer to continue the series. Supposedly, NECA initially tried to get Mattel to license the line (with Mattel's name still on it), but had to settle on "Staticion figures "

@  Dracula : (26 June 2017 - 08:04 PM)

every non-Skeletor or He-Man was like winning a battle

@  Dracula : (26 June 2017 - 08:04 PM)

it was just such a difficult line to collect!

@  Dracula : (26 June 2017 - 08:04 PM)

I still have all my 2002 MOTU figures and even though they're usually in storage I don't think I could bear to part with them

@  Echowarrior : (26 June 2017 - 08:02 PM)

Same here. The show that went with it was surprisingly good.

@  RichardT1977 : (26 June 2017 - 08:01 PM)

I totally agree with you about 2002 MotU though.

@  Rycochet : (26 June 2017 - 06:50 PM)

Because people want some approximation of the look and feel of the vintage console and playing experience? It's not like the Mini-Snes is being produced instead of these games being released on the switch VC, that'll happen eventually anyway

@  RichardT1977 : (26 June 2017 - 06:39 PM)

Sega did it with some of their Genesis titles for the PS3 and XBox 360, and Midway did the same. Several times.

@  RichardT1977 : (26 June 2017 - 06:39 PM)

Instead of making classic consoles with classic games built in, why not release those games in classic sets for the Switch?

@  Rycochet : (26 June 2017 - 06:25 PM)

The fate of 2002 MOTU still makes me sad, I loved that line.

@  Tm_Silverclaw : (26 June 2017 - 05:59 PM)

Bah. There are many many toys rarer than Movieverse toys. Any character that wasn't He-Man or Skeletor for instance! :)

@  Paladin : (26 June 2017 - 05:16 PM)

Nintendo consoles are the only things rarer than new waves of Movieverse toys.

@  TM2-Megatron : (26 June 2017 - 03:48 PM)

Nintendo claims they'll be producing "significantly more" units of the SNES, so maybe there's a chance. It'd be better this time if they just took pre-orders, and based their production on that

@  Dracula : (26 June 2017 - 03:46 PM)

Nobody is getting that.

@  unluckiness : (26 June 2017 - 09:28 AM)

They're clogging shelves here, which is odd. I expected the Generations toys to be somewhat cut down in favor of movie stuff.

@  Pennpenn : (26 June 2017 - 08:11 AM)

I dunno, I got a bunch of "Blitzwing and Octone cosplaying as Megatron and Optimus Prime" in my local TRU, does that help?

@  Paladin : (26 June 2017 - 07:52 AM)

so will TitanReturns Blitzwing & Octone ever actually come out or have they just vanished into neverland?

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.

No, we don't all know everything but we should spread and share that what we do know.

If I'm consistently misspelling a word, I would want and expect people to correct me as should I imagine all decent people who know the value of good literacy.

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.
