They make a lot of pills for that.

@  Nevermore : (19 June 2019 - 05:42 PM)

I got the results of the test back. I definitely have no sense of humor.

@  Paladin : (18 June 2019 - 05:59 PM)

so anyway how is your sex life?

@  TheMightyMol... : (18 June 2019 - 10:50 AM)

These jokes are tearing me apart.

@  unluckiness : (18 June 2019 - 08:55 AM)

Only if the customer reviews give it all high marks.

@  Patch : (18 June 2019 - 04:42 AM)

Are they going to call it "I-Did-Nawtflix?"

@  unluckiness : (18 June 2019 - 12:48 AM)

I see, so what the world needs is a Tommy Wiseau streaming service.

@  TM2-Megatron : (17 June 2019 - 11:02 PM)

Well, Conan did start the trend that resulted in a wave of Barbarian films in the mid to late 80s

@  MEDdMI : (17 June 2019 - 10:57 PM)

I keep wanting to read Corman as Conan

@  TM2-Megatron : (17 June 2019 - 10:29 PM)

There needs to be some streaming service that caters to connoisseurs of schlock. Otherwise, a huge part of our cultural history will be wiped away. While many of these films are available on blu-ray, with more coming out each month, it's good they're also available for the streaming crowd.

@  TM2-Megatron : (17 June 2019 - 10:18 PM)

Corman did make an impressive number of barbarian films back in the day. If impressive is the word

@  Steevy Maximus : (17 June 2019 - 08:11 PM)

I mean, where else are you going to see the entire Roger Corman barbarian fantasy library (legally) for free?

@  Steevy Maximus : (17 June 2019 - 08:09 PM)

Oh Tubi TV, you are a haven for terrible films. Netflix, Hulu and Crackle all push for mainstream appeal and prestige, you got the guts to have ready access to dregs even the SyFy channel wouldn't air

@  ▲ndrusi : (17 June 2019 - 01:33 PM)

Also you have Bayonetta and a bunch of Fire Emblem people.

@  ▲ndrusi : (17 June 2019 - 01:33 PM)

...I mean, Tales character. Probably up to/for it.

@  TheMightyMol... : (17 June 2019 - 01:26 PM)

But what if I need to kill a god? Or several of them?

@  ▲ndrusi : (17 June 2019 - 11:25 AM)

Kratos is allowed, but only the one from Tales of Symphonia

@  TheMightyMol... : (17 June 2019 - 10:56 AM)

So no Kratos?

@  ▲ndrusi : (17 June 2019 - 10:42 AM)

In any case I'd rather have another Fire Emblem character than another character from a PlayStation exclusive game who teeeeeechnically was in a spinoff.

@  ▲ndrusi : (17 June 2019 - 10:39 AM)

Kong had his name on the games first, but Mario was the protagonist first. It's debatable.

@  Rycochet : (17 June 2019 - 10:33 AM)

Wouldn't Mario be the one spun off from the Donkey Kong franchise, given that Kong was first?

@  Pennpenn : (17 June 2019 - 05:19 AM)

I would count Wario and Yoshi, but not DK (might be because I wasn't even aware DK was spun off from the Mario franchise until I was in my mid-20s, but whatever)

@  unluckiness : (17 June 2019 - 04:13 AM)

But to be fair, Corrin is the only one I particularly dislike and it's really more boredom due to their blandness as characters

@  unluckiness : (17 June 2019 - 04:09 AM)

It would depend on whether or not you count DK, Wario and Yoshi as part of the Mario franchise or separate. Scratch that, there are more Mario characters even with just the mushroom symbol people but it's a close call.

@  Pennpenn : (17 June 2019 - 02:55 AM)

You'd figure Fire Emblem would have enough characters in Smash. Kinda feels like there's more FE characters than Mario characters.

@  unluckiness : (16 June 2019 - 01:20 AM)

And for hug's sake, I hope that the new Fire Emblem's PC isn't one of the DLC

@  Sean Whitmore : (15 June 2019 - 04:11 PM)

Smash Bros could never touch a new franchise again, and I'd still have laundry lists of side characters and villains I'd love to see included.

@  MEDdMI : (14 June 2019 - 10:38 PM)

I would unironically love Tingle in Smash.

@  Paladin : (14 June 2019 - 02:06 PM)

they HAVE to put Travis Touchdown in at some point now, right???

@  TheMightyMol... : (14 June 2019 - 01:24 PM)

Right after Shaq.

@  Locoman : (14 June 2019 - 12:36 PM)

When will we get Bluster Kong in Smash?

@  unluckiness : (14 June 2019 - 08:20 AM)

The last three DLC characters are Tingle, Charles Barkley and L Tetris block with Reverse L Tetris block as an Echo fighter.

@  MEDdMI : (14 June 2019 - 08:09 AM)

Pipe dream Smash entry: The Prince from the Katamari series. :D

@  MEDdMI : (14 June 2019 - 06:35 AM)

The space/time around them gets frozen too! ....or something.

@  unluckiness : (14 June 2019 - 06:01 AM)

I still want to find out how freezing people suspends them in midair

@  Tm_Silverclaw : (14 June 2019 - 02:45 AM)

We really need Subzero or Scorpion in Smash. Violence aside, they are pretty big gaming icons as well.

@  Steevy Maximus : (13 June 2019 - 08:18 PM)

Given Nintendo's relationship with Tecmo, I'm still waiting for Ryu Hyabusa

@  TheMightyMol... : (13 June 2019 - 07:19 PM)

I'm still waiting for Doomguy.

@  Steevy Maximus : (13 June 2019 - 06:47 PM)

I just started watching High School DxD (don't judge me...) and I caught on the Nintendo Treehouse some request Rias for Smash lol

@  ▲ndrusi : (13 June 2019 - 11:25 AM)

I have having to watch a video to find out why someone wanted me to watch the video

@  Nevermore : (11 June 2019 - 04:58 PM)

I remember when the TPB for The Dark Age 2 was delayed for an entire year...

@  Trpodeca : (11 June 2019 - 03:55 AM)

I just wish they'd release the Astro City paperback trades.

@  Nevermore : (10 June 2019 - 05:31 AM)

As an open-minded heterosexual, I wouldn't mind seeing more of that.

@  Nevermore : (10 June 2019 - 05:29 AM)

Currently in the process of re-reading Kurt Busiek's Astro City. Big props for the issue featuring the "Dancing Master" and its portrayal of non-stereotypical gay characters.

@  TM2-Megatron : (10 June 2019 - 05:25 AM)

Don't phone charges often contain special rapid charge circuitry, though? The voltage might be higher too, given the selfie stick probably has a very basic battery.

@  SHIELD Agent 47 : (09 June 2019 - 11:28 PM)

Glad to be of assistance!

@  Telly : (09 June 2019 - 10:32 PM)

Last week I got my hands on the recently released Generations 2011 Volume 1 Book.

The second volume is due for release in July 2011 and will feature a comic written by Simon Furman and illustrated by Guido Guidi (translations of the last part of "Unite for the Universe" are coming soon).

I've scanned some of the pages I think people would find most interesting, as well as the interviews in case anyone ever decides to translate them.

Cover

Generations_2011_Volume_1_Cover.jpg

Page 1
Generations_2011_Volume_1_1.jpg

Page 60 (I found this interesting as they list it as unused designs, which is true for Reflector I believe, but the rest are either Derrick Wyatt having fun or stuff just made for the Almanacs). Note that Powered Convoy Magnus has Ultra Magnus' head instead of his own.
Generations_2011_Volume_1_60.jpg

Optimus Prime & Sari VS Motormaster and Shattered Glass Sari
Generations_2011_Volume_1_61.jpg

First Interview including the early concept of Rodimus Convoy.
Generations_2011_Volume_1_070.jpg Generations_2011_Volume_1_071.jpg Generations_2011_Volume_1_072.jpg

Second Interview in regards to Generations/Reveal the Shield/United. Note that Wheeljack was intended as the first use of the mold with Tracks as the retool. Design design work of Straxus, Lugnut, Perceptor, and Scourge. As well as Jazz's CAD design.
Generations_2011_Volume_1_074.jpg Generations_2011_Volume_1_075.jpg Generations_2011_Volume_1_076.jpg

Presented in full scan size, all the regular United Back Card Art.
Generations_2011_Volume_1_077.jpg

Interview regarding the new Dual Model Kits.
TF_Generations_2011_Vol_1_078.jpg TF_Generations_2011_Vol_1_079.jpg

Interview about new Kabaya Kits.

The Canceled Jetwing Convoy Prototype from Unite the Universe.

Back Cover

I recommend all the Generations books as they are all very well put together and offer some very nice detailed photos and a backstage view of the design process for Transformers. My only regret is that, of course, the books are in Japanese. Though this only really tends to affect the interviews and more informational pages.

Yeah they're very similar, just drawn by someone different (I presume) with some minor differences in designs.

Designer interview...

I love those. I lost the link the the one TFW translated that pointed out the original Rodimus Prime lost articulation because it was Takara's response to comments from Hasbro that Transformers before then "broke too easily".

Well they weren't used for the TV show, so I guess the "unused design" category still fits.

Wing Saber is kind of a weird choice to depict like that as an Animated Autobot, given that he's a flying Autobot with gun hands elsewhere...

It's like they gave someone a small blurry picture of the original drawings for Sideways and Wing Saber, and said to just work it out.

This is the fourth instalment of the Generations Book. The first one was released twice as the Generation Book and Generation Deluxe, then there were were three updates in 2009 and there will be three volumes this year.

The Lugnut is a mock-up / custom and was not planned for release.

I published some scans from the magazine over the weekend if everyone is interested in seeing more over at Transformers At The Moon.
