All good here, I don't work that far into the city.

@  Bass X0 : (22 March 2017 - 05:00 PM)

I'm way up north, so yeah.

@  SHIELD Agent 47 : (22 March 2017 - 02:34 PM)

I just saw the news. Are all of you Britons on this board alright?

@  Telly : (22 March 2017 - 01:20 PM)

spoilers dude!

@  Paladin : (22 March 2017 - 12:26 PM)

I'm pretty sure Kong doesn't fight Fox Studios...

@  NotVeryKnightly : (22 March 2017 - 12:25 PM)

I didn't know he was meeting the Fantastic Four's enemies.

@  Bass X0 : (22 March 2017 - 12:18 PM)

I might watch Kong: Skrull Island this weekend.

@  ▲ndrusi : (22 March 2017 - 10:48 AM)

(At least I'm assuming it was "instead." I guess I don't know for sure that Eddie Murphy's character wouldn't have been Kirk's love interest.)

@  ▲ndrusi : (22 March 2017 - 10:47 AM)

I dunno about that. Star Trek IV was pretty great but I'm haunted by the knowledge that at one point instead of a love interest it was going to have Eddie Murphy.

@  Paladin : (22 March 2017 - 07:28 AM)

you know a remake/movie's in trouble when adding Eddie Murphy to it might make things BETTER...

@  unluckiness : (22 March 2017 - 06:45 AM)

Is Eddie Murphy still Mushu?

The captain Mulan falls in love with is also getting replaced by a new character

As long as we get the men throwing their manliness around, then crossdressing, I'll be happy.

@  MEDdMI : (21 March 2017 - 08:30 PM)

what....? b-but that song's so awesome! *lookd up info* oh, it's just "for now", but could change since it's not planned for release until 2018.

@  Waspinator : (21 March 2017 - 08:22 PM)

Oh wow, you're not kidding: they're actually planning to remake Mulan without the songs. Idiots.

@  MEDdMI : (21 March 2017 - 08:16 PM)

can't; they cut that from the new movie.

@  NightViper : (21 March 2017 - 01:54 PM)

If they had a sword they would not get bored. They would not get bored, that horrible Horde. They would find a lord - a lord and his ward - and use their sword to slice the lord. Yes slice the lord just like a gourd! Then the ward they turn themselves toward that horrible Horde. That horrible terrible deplorable Mongol Horde. And they would not be bored if they had a sword.

@  Telly : (21 March 2017 - 01:23 PM)

@  Paladin : (21 March 2017 - 01:07 PM)

how many boars would the Mongols hoard if the Mongol Horde got bored?

@  Telly : (20 March 2017 - 06:55 PM)

trying to decide if autocracy was an attempt at an original story or just an excuse to quote the '86 movie for the gajillionth time. time to move on fom it (even if you did have a hand in writing it)!

@  Telly : (20 March 2017 - 04:38 PM)

certainly not! reminds me too much of those tests they made me take when i was a kid. the trauma. the trauma...

What, you don't like inkblots?

@  Telly : (20 March 2017 - 03:46 PM)

plus the -acies have my all time favorite artist on it (thats to be read with the most sarcastic tone possible btw)

@  TheMightyMol... : (20 March 2017 - 03:40 PM)

You're not missing anything. Either in the "quality of the stories themselves" way OR in the "adds to the greater universe" way.

@  Dracula : (20 March 2017 - 03:30 PM)

I still haven't read the -acies despite owning most of them in print...

@  Dracula : (20 March 2017 - 03:29 PM)

I like Origins, I feel like the later stories add to it and make it better than what it was when written.

@  Telly : (20 March 2017 - 02:57 PM)

@jalaguy-well if i get bored with the stories i can always skip them lol

@  TheMightyMol... : (20 March 2017 - 02:53 PM)

Origins felt like it was Megatron telling his own story and leaving out the parts he didn't like.

@  Jalaguy : (20 March 2017 - 02:49 PM)

Origins-and-acies-first reading orders are A Bad Idea.

@  Telly : (20 March 2017 - 02:32 PM)

origin felt like its writer was just waiting for someone to come along and fill in the gaps for him

@  Telly : (20 March 2017 - 02:32 PM)

im currently making my way through autocracy. im trying to read them all in the order on the wiki page; http://tfwiki.net/wi...ontinuity#Media

@  Rycochet : (20 March 2017 - 02:04 PM)

The 'acys have no excuse for their terribleness.

@  Rycochet : (20 March 2017 - 02:04 PM)

Megatron Origin gave us Megatron's lovely locks, so that's something. It wasn't horrible, but being condensed down to four issues really hurt it

@  Jalaguy : (20 March 2017 - 03:20 AM)

March Mayhem begins! Go vote now!

@  Noideaforaname : (19 March 2017 - 10:44 PM)

Megatron Origin is super disappointing if you go in right after reading Chaos Theory/MtMtE...

@  Telly : (19 March 2017 - 09:34 PM)

just read the megatron origin series. that really shouldve been 6 issues. it was very choppy and some things couldve used some further explaining

@  WorkbenchManiac : (17 March 2017 - 04:53 PM)

alright so here's the skinny.
My daughter who is in kindergarden brought home an invitation to a kids birthday party that is in her class.
I called and RSVPd to it because she "really really really really REALLY!!!" wanted to go to the party. I asked the kids mother what kind of toys he like and she said that I didn't need to bring anything.
My budget is pretty tight however being the big geek who can't disappoint a kid on his birthday.
I asked my daughter what he likes. She told me he's always wearing TF, and spongebob shirts.
So me being the hardcore tf collector I am, I think I can hook the kid up.
Now here is where I need the help.
The kid is turning 6, and I've got plenty of in box stuff that is just eating space.
here is the question.
Do you think he'd like an
A 2007 movie allspark blue Deluxe new Cammero BumbleBee (target exclusive I picked up for a song on clearance) or B the reveal the shield redco of classic's BumbleBee?
C go to walmart and grab 1 autobot and 1 decpitcon legends class figure off the shelve and give them to him. (So if he has a brother will be able to 'fight' each other)

I'm leaning towards that reveal the shield BumbleBee, but I want an opinion other than my own here. The party is at 2 in the afternoon tomorrow
thanks guys

I voted Classics BB. it's a good solid mold that wont come apart on a kid, its durable, AND it is easy enough to Transform that they shouldn't have an issue doing it, which can be a problem with movie toys sometimes, and it has that "better than the movie" stuff classic TF look.

ZacWilliam, Really the first 2 are whats important but 3 isn't a bad thing either IMO.
Ever wonder about the speed of Turbofoxes?

I'm afraid I don't know the kids folks quite that well.
I'd offer up the 2007 movie redco of ultra red alert if I did

Given his age and the current complexity of TF toys, I'd say a few Animated Activators, if you can still score em.

You're far too young to be this bitter and angry at the world....

RTS Bumblebee. For the reasons already stated. I almost went with the 2 legends, but as I kid I think I would have wanted one regular sized guy over 2 small guys whi have bigger versions.

RtS Bumblebee is both easier to transform and less likely to be a mold he's already got.

Not my finest work, but when life gives you lemons, they're yellow so just paint black stripes on them and call them Bumblebee. Kids will buy them.

lol I can't believe I forgot that part in the time it took me to write something... boy I must have been way to multitasking, Sorry Rat.

icon-fire.gif that aside -> lol yeah just put aside the suggested kidnapping icon-primal.gif

as a collector I'd suggest away from a Bumblebee of any sort, because I'm tired of seeing him everywhere... but as somebody who remembers being six, the one I can see everywhere is the one I want.

So i vote rts Bee...

I voter two legends because then right off the bat he's got two robots to fight each other. Get Prime and Megatron if you can.
