@  Nutjob R/T : (20 August 2019 - 12:48 AM)

New crowdfunding project: We need to get enough nose candy for the Paramount execs to keep 'em up long enough to get DS9 squeezed out

@  TM2-Megatron : (19 August 2019 - 04:36 PM)

They're hideously cheap. I'm just glad some decision maker in the upper echelons stayed high as a kite for long enough for us to get TOS, TNG and TAS on blu-ray

@  Rycochet : (19 August 2019 - 04:16 PM)

Paramount are kinda cheap and Ds9 isn't popular enough for them to go all out on a remaster.

@  TM2-Megatron : (19 August 2019 - 03:37 PM)

Or hell, they could just shorten a season of Discovery by 2-3 episodes and that'd pay for the DS9 remaster in full (assuming the 8 to 8.5 million per episode for Discovery that was reported a while back is accurate)

@  TM2-Megatron : (19 August 2019 - 03:32 PM)

Redoing some of the more simple effects like phasers and transporters and whatnot (basically what they've already had practice doing for TNG)

@  TM2-Megatron : (19 August 2019 - 03:30 PM)

They could scan and rebuild the film elements, and then upscale the original CGI only (provided it still exists as separate footage)

@  Dekafox : (19 August 2019 - 02:33 PM)

Basically its in the same situation as DS9 IIRC with loss of models and how the CGI was applied to the existing footage.

@  Dekafox : (19 August 2019 - 02:32 PM)

Not gonna happen unless they recreate all the CGI from scratch, unfortunately. Or just upscale the broadcast masters, which would be basically pointless.

@  Sabrblade : (18 August 2019 - 09:34 PM)

For some reason, I've always wanted to see a "Menastator", all five Stunticons and all six Constructicons in an 11-piece combiner.

@  Maximus Ambus : (18 August 2019 - 01:35 PM)

Dunno what we'd call a Megatron combiner, we almost got a Megastator in IDW but nothing in Combiner Wars.

@  Paladin : (18 August 2019 - 01:30 PM)

somehow read that as "Megachronic." wonder if Decepticons get the munchies...

I have three Cybertron Vector Primes, wouldn't throw them around though. I love that design too much,

@  TheMightyMol... : (17 August 2019 - 02:03 PM)

I'm just picturing someone throwing a pile of Vector Prime toys around. I don't know why.

@  Rycochet : (17 August 2019 - 01:42 PM)

Multi Vector Assault mode is what they go into when they think anyone's even slightly infringing on their IP.

@  Ashley : (17 August 2019 - 02:30 AM)

They MIGHT have done it for Star Trek Online ships, but even if they have that'd be a fairly specific category.

@  Tieria Prime : (17 August 2019 - 02:11 AM)

Hi friends

@  Nevermore : (17 August 2019 - 02:05 AM)

So only if Viacom/Paramount has actively trademarked the term "multi-vector assault mode", offered goods or services under that name and has been offering those goods and services in recent years, Hasbro cannot offer goods or services under that name in the same category.

@  Nevermore : (17 August 2019 - 02:04 AM)

And they need to be consistently used on top of that.

@  Nevermore : (17 August 2019 - 02:03 AM)

Even if they are trademarked.

@  Nevermore : (17 August 2019 - 02:02 AM)

Words and terms used in dialogue shouldn't be affected.

@  Nevermore : (17 August 2019 - 02:02 AM)

Also, the trademarks only apply in commerce. You use them to identify goods and services.

@  Ashley : (16 August 2019 - 11:55 PM)

Yeah, you also need to apply for it. They might've never bothered to trademark that.

@  NotVeryKnightly : (16 August 2019 - 08:37 PM)

Trademark affects titles and product names, not every word in writing. For example, DC called their character "Captain Marvel" as recently as 2014.

@  SHIELD Agent 47 : (16 August 2019 - 08:30 PM)

You missed my point. I was addressing the usage of the phrase in dialogue. Hence the quotation marks.

@  Pennpenn : (16 August 2019 - 08:00 PM)

Well, they can anyway, they might just not be able to call it that...

@  SHIELD Agent 47 : (16 August 2019 - 06:54 PM)

It would be awesome for Transformers to have the likes of Overlord and Sky Lynx "engage multi-vector assault mode!"

@  SHIELD Agent 47 : (16 August 2019 - 06:53 PM)

It is a shame that "multi-vector assault mode" is probably trademarked for Star Trek.

@  unluckiness : (15 August 2019 - 10:54 PM)

Only if they manage to boomer-proof it

@  RichardT1977 : (15 August 2019 - 08:16 PM)

(and would that really be a bad thing?)

@  RichardT1977 : (15 August 2019 - 08:16 PM)

Wouldn't a cybernetic singularity actually remove one or more of the top levels of Maslow's hierarchy?

@  Steevy Maximus : (15 August 2019 - 07:40 PM)

Tomy made some strange selections on their first wave of Tomica releases for the US

@  TheMightyMol... : (15 August 2019 - 06:26 PM)

Resistance is futile.

@  wonko the sane? : (15 August 2019 - 06:20 PM)

I would be down for a nice cybernetic singularity if it meant we could actually reach the top of maslow's hierarchy.

@  Ashley : (15 August 2019 - 05:44 PM)

I'm pretty sure the origin of the villains in GaoGaiGar was a computer being told to reduce the stress of the population and it's answer was to assimilate everyone.

@  Maximus Ambus : (15 August 2019 - 01:53 PM)

Executions then followed by nano reanimation then cryonic suspension until everyone you know is deactivated for good so you can build happiness in a future society.

@  wonko the sane? : (15 August 2019 - 01:47 PM)

As opposed to the ones that lie already? As a civilization: we're emotional and socially broken. Might as well have the society that at least wants us to be "happy".

I might need to look into Savers then. I loved Tamers, but I can't get into any of the other stuff. Even the first season was dry and a bit more kiddy than I'd prefer. (Y'know, digivolving in the first season was forming Voltron from the get-go. The first time a main character digivolves in Tamers, it's a bad thing.)

Savers has that problem too at first.
Most of the fights in the first "arc" basically follow the formula of: Masaru finds a way to punch the MOTW-> Agumon evolves into GeoGreymon-> GeoGreymon OHKOs the enemy.

I haven't watched it since it aired, but I think that part gets better after they go to the digital world.

I didn't mind the Monster of the Week format. It let us get to know the characters before thrusting them into world saving shenanigans.

Plus some of those episodes explore how sometimes a digimon and a human meeting one another isn't always a GOOD thing. But then, by that point, I was weary a bit of how in other canons digimon always appeared only before children and the mostly good and decent. Savers defies that a lot, both showing adults with digimon partners and that sometimes a digimon and a human don't always have the noblest of reasons for being together.

"Disabled people donít have special needs. We have very reasonable human needs. Our needs include freedom from abuse, violence, and mistreatment, the right to autonomy and self-direction, the right to represent ourselves, equal opportunity for education and employment, the right to accommodation, and societal inclusion and acceptance.

The need for accommodation isnít a ďspecial needĒ. Itís a basic human right. Itís a leveling of the playing field that allows us the same opportunities and chances as non-disabled people."

Oh, I liked the episodes, but a lot of people justifiably didn't like how the fights were handled.
I did, but that was mainly because I thought Masaru having to punch digimon was incredibly amusing.

For some reason - possibly it was where the sub group I was using started? - the first I saw of Savers was MachGaogamon's debut, and it was pretty strong from that point on (though I stopped watching for no reason at all around when ElDoradimon appeared).

I just hit episodes 10/11 of Xros Wars, and wow... I don't think I ever expected Daipenmon to appear in the anime. I've come to adore Xros Wars dropping levels because it gives them so much leeway to use any Digimon they want.

Yay, a Digimon thread!

Given my dislike of anime, I bet a lot of people will be surprised, but I like Digimon. icon-hotrod.gif Granted, I am still lagging behind in watching series 2, but I have seen this and that from all series. I enjoy the concept of the programs/data on the internet being actually intelligent evolving creatures in another dimension that we can interact with. Plus, the creature designs are usually awesome. Generally, Digimon blows Pokemon out of the water in regards to storytelling (I stopped watching, but did Team Rocket ever came even close to capturing Pikatchu... and why do they want it so badly?), characters (too many favourites to name) and actually speaking creatures (the main flaw of Pokemon that just makes it uninteresting to me, after all, it's like the world of a 1000 Armada cartoon Minicons).

Heck, I like it so much, one day I got inspired and drew the various phases of Shockwave, if he was a Digimon. icon-hotrod.gif

I think I'm going to have to re-watch Savers soon.
I say it is my favorite series, but I've seen the others more recently. Might be good to refresh my memory of it.


Plus I watched most of the last arc RAW due to impatience.
Had to read onkeikun's summaries after each episode to get an idea of what was going on.

Optikkmon is a floral Beholder?
Oculomon is a Beast Machines Diagnostic Drone?

Just saying I watched Summer Wars (yes, just NOW. Yes, I know there was a thread here months ago). Digimon nostaaaaalgia! It's seriously what Our War Game aka Digimon Movie 2 was suppose to be if it wasn't tied to Digimon?

I stopped Xcros Wars after the Volcanomon episode. Before Dorulu, Drilleomon's origin. Shoutmon annoys me so much so I quit. I'll watch it complete some time in the future.

Savers wasn't that bad. Hated that the 'tamers' were older kids. Loved the seeing old Digimon cameos. Tamers is still the best. Then Adventure 01. Eeh on Frontier. I can't even remember the name of the two Tamer less Digimon sidekicks (Bokumon?).

Hey, she gets them when she merges with Rika. I mean, I like to think that those are Renamon's.

Shockemon is adorable. I did a similar thing ages and ages ago with Pikachu once (taking Pichu as "fresh" and so on, and then doing champion and ultimate forms for him.)

I think I'm sold on making an attempt with Savers, though. It sounds Tamers-y enough to try, and I like the idea of adults with Digimon partners.

This week's new fan-made digimon winner: Footmon



A soccer themed Beelzebmon? How odd. That's interesting that the original didn't really have any Beelzebmon elements, but Bandai's reinterpretation added them in. At least it doesn't have the third demon eye.

Well, I kinda hope we never see Footmon again. =)

Savers never really caught my interest. I didn't find any of the characters to be likable, and didn't find the hero's organization to be much better than the first villain's group, so watching it was kind of a chore. I think I kept up until the Eldoradimon episodes or so, then got busy and just never went back. One of these days I'll finish it.

That I actually liked better, because then the kids were less cheerleaders and got more involved.

I guess that's part of why I like Xros Wars so much, because Taiki and Kiriha often get their hands dirty, and hell Zenjirou even swung a sword about.

PM me if you're bored!
