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.

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.

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".

@  RichardT1977 : (15 August 2019 - 11:48 AM)

Or you'd have a lot of people lying about their emotional state to avoid being executed.

@  wonko the sane? : (15 August 2019 - 11:18 AM)

That would actually be a massive step up: since there's a LOT of stuff needed to quantify happiness, and it could only be an improvement over the existing governments which actually don't care if you live or die, never mind if you're "happy".

@  RichardT1977 : (15 August 2019 - 10:02 AM)

I wish it was easier to get behind-the-scenes info for digimon. Sure we've gotten some stuff about specific shows and video games, but I'm talking about the franchise as a whole.

What's the story behind the Royal Knights and the other special groups? Yggdrasil and the X-antibody Digimon? stuff like that.

I feel like Transformers has spoiled me in that regard. The fandom has a pretty translucent relationship with Hasbro, and we get interviews every few months with the Takaratomy guys. It is pretty awesome.


QUOTE(Unfair Fight @ Sep 5 2011, 06:15 AM) <{POST_SNAPBACK}>
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.

Zenjirou straight out killed a digimon.

I guess that's part of the reason why I liked Savers, or Masaru specifically.
Character wise he's a bit too into gender roles, but he sure knows how to jump inhumanly high and clock digimon in the face.

edit: Now I want a fully articulated figure of Masaru. Out of all the humans in Digimon he's probably the most deserving of one.
Preferably with his outfit from the second half of the show.

Is there any particular reason why most Digimon merchandise is incredibly overpriced nowadays?

I know a lot of the stuff is hard to find (particularly the Japanese versions everyone considers superior) but I don't think any other franchise has a markup rate like Digimon toys.


I'm not sure when it started, but from what I've read it seems to have begun with a few sellers around Asia (not Japan; Japanese sellers always had the most reasonable eBay prices for Digimon stuff back then), where a lot of this merchandise was produced and still resides in excess quantities, inflating the values of their auctions over some period of time. At this point, especially for the older seasons' merchandise, those auctions are mostly the only ones left so they can sell at whatever price they want (and people creating new listings, who perhaps search eBay for similar stuff to gauge what price they should set, usually seem to use those as a basis now as well). Most sit around for months having to be relisted again and again, but eventually someone with more money than sense will come along and buy something; and that keeps it going. Then another of the same, or a similar item with a different version number, is listed in its place at an equally absurd price.

I'm glad I got anything Digimon I may've wanted years ago, when you could pick up a brand new Japanese D-3 or D-Ark for no more than $50, usually including shipping. Now, you'd be lucky if you could get something like that for less than $130 (and most are used). And it's not always even the Japanese stuff that's the most overpriced. Take this thing:

http://www.ebay.com/...=item415c531f7e

A pretty craptacular Bandai Asia/America D-3; nearly $400. Ugly as sin, too... those colours icon-primal.gif. All things considered, you'd be better off buying its Japanese equivalent, listed from the same scammer/seller for $180 less:

The Digimon stuff - all loose - was HORRENDOUSLY overpriced. It kind of boggled my mind.

Oh, wow. Switch that from $ to ¥ and I would think about.
I have most of those, and even $100 for all of them seems like it would be pushing it.

If I were to track down any of the older stuff it would probably be the Japanese Armor guys.
Since the US toys were completely different.

The torrent was down, it seems, but thanks for the link and the advice.

I think it's a little too burning-courage-and-miniskirts for me, in any case (reminding me a bit of Mobile Fighter G Gundam, actually*) but it's kind of neat.

I mainly lost interest when the kids themselves started turning into Digimon, or they'd biologically merge with their Digimon partner.

I didn't have a problem with it in Tamers. It seemed like a natural extension of the kids' being their partners' source of power and the emotional links they had, and it meant that the kids had to have some skin in the game. I loved the hell out of the voice effect, too.

I'm glad to have it verified that there's an Evangelion influence, incidentally.

True, and I do really like having a human character who thinks like a Digimon. That needed to happen at some point in the franchise.

Edit: Yeah, but I can't help thinking it's a reference to Shining Gundam, particularly since there's also a Rising Gundam, who has the same chest piece....

ShineGreymon also acts pretty well as a God Gundam homage, thanks to the way Glorious Burst is fired exactly like the Sekiha Tenkyouken...

...to the point Savers literally shot for shot recreates one key scene from G Gundam towards the end. (Not coincidentally, said Savers head writer wrote both of those episodes for both shows.)

I'm kinda iffy on the Joruney to the West Digimon. I really, REALLY like Gokuwmon for looking totally badass and awesome, Sagomon is cool despite being a darker and edgier Shawujingmon. Sanzomon is a little too human compared to a lot of other Digimon. She literally has no monstrous features, but she's not a bad design. Cho-Hakkaimon, on the other hand, weirds me out. If she had more than just a school swimsuit covering her up (other than the pig armor), I'd be more okay, but as it is, she seems like otaku-bait.

Having looked them all up, I generally agree with you here. Given Cho?Hakkaimon's backstory, she really should have some sort of design cue from the general style of angel Digimon. I do like the pig armour though, it reminds me of the slime-in-a-puppet Digimon... Ex-Tyrannomon is still one of my favourite Digimon.

There should be a Sagomon vs. Shawujingmon episode of The Young Hunters Who Leapt Through Time.

Shawujingmon and Sagomon were both once Angelic digimon and they don't look holy at all.

Sagomon likely looks less monstrous and blatantly human because the mink Sanzo was literally just some monk dude. He's defined by NOT being spectacular at all. Makes sense his digimon version would follow suit, beyond being turned into a chick.

And of course Cho*Hakkaimon is otaku bait. This franchise has been swimming in fetish fuel for nigh on 15 years now.

I kinda woulda wanted Zhui Baije to be represented by a big bulky boar dude.
I'm also pretty much okay with Sanzomon looking human and being a chick, because of Shinzo turning the character into a chick named Yakumo. Then again, Shinzo's version of Zhu Baije was a fat cat who turned into a lion, and Sago was a dragon dude and Son Wukong was a short guy with pheonix-themed armor.

@Proper Dave: That's exactly the reason I loathed Frontier. Especially since Tamers had some of the best/funniest Tamer/Digimon dynamics with Jenrya and Terriermon and Takato and Guilmon.
