2 inches of snow on the side of the house, 2 feet of snow on the deck. I hate this winter already.

@  Tm_Silverclaw : (11 November 2019 - 11:33 PM)

But that requires actually going IN walmart. ;P

@  Liege : (11 November 2019 - 11:22 PM)

Pro tip for anyone hunting the for the Walmart 35th exclusives: try the seasonal aisles rather than the toy section. I found the display with all the exclusives and a bunch of the reflector wave practically untouched amongst those novelty arcade machines and a bunch of frozen merch.

@  SHIELD Agent 47 : (11 November 2019 - 09:45 PM)

Although that does spark an idea for me. In a new continuity, Censere the Necrobot could be the herald Cityspeaker for Quintessa the Necrotitan just to play on their monikers utilizing Greek for dead, nekrós.

@  SHIELD Agent 47 : (11 November 2019 - 09:26 PM)

I hate to burst your bubble, Maximus Ambus, but 90% of things said in IDW turned out to be amnesiac half-rememberings courtesy of Adaptus or outright lies courtesy of Shockwave.

@  Jenny : (11 November 2019 - 08:54 AM)

The toy's designed to look like Wipe-Out, anyway.

@  NotVeryKnightly : (11 November 2019 - 08:14 AM)

Didn't they try to retcon that into a figure of speech because that connection went against everybody else's long-term plans?

@  Maximus Ambus : (11 November 2019 - 03:53 AM)

There's still some connection given Trypticon was created by Mortilus.

@  NotVeryKnightly : (11 November 2019 - 12:12 AM)

Yeah that toy doesn't exactly look like Necrobot.

@  Sabrblade : (10 November 2019 - 08:24 PM)

But.... it's just "Necro" not "Necrobot".

@  TheMightyMol... : (10 November 2019 - 05:10 PM)

But why does the God of Death need a giant space kaiju? Wait, never mind, answered my own question.

@  Maximus Ambus : (10 November 2019 - 02:15 PM)

Yowza I just realised Titans Trypticon comes with Necro AKA Censere AKA Mortilus.

@  Nevermore : (10 November 2019 - 01:15 PM)

I... think the best equivalent would actually be the British "There is room for improvement".

@  Nevermore : (10 November 2019 - 01:15 PM)

There's always a sense of irony to it, but what the ratio between irony (you really failed) and straightworwardness (at least you achieved something) is depends on the situation and the speaker.

@  Nevermore : (10 November 2019 - 01:12 PM)

The meaning can be both literal (you succeed on one level but fail on another), or it can be utterly ironic (you fail in every regard but the most technical; or even worse, "you really gave your best"), and anything in between.

@  Nevermore : (10 November 2019 - 01:10 PM)

For example: A singer can hit the notes really well, but clearly isn't a native speaker and what little of the lyrics you can make out sounds nothing like what it's supposed to be.

@  wonko the sane? : (10 November 2019 - 01:06 PM)

The premise seems to be the mixing of technical and aesthetic technical qualities towards the overall success.

@  wonko the sane? : (10 November 2019 - 01:05 PM)

But both "hollow victory" and pyrrhic victory" are referring to having lost as much as you've gained. IE; a battle was won but both armies were destroyed. The town being seiged is victorious, but all the soldiers are still dead. Nevermore's concept is more "You did it, but it's so ugly we don't know if you actually succeeded".

@  Sabrblade : (10 November 2019 - 11:35 AM)

Alternately, one could probably also call it a "hollow victory".

@  Sabrblade : (10 November 2019 - 11:35 AM)

Example: In the Powerpuff Girls episode "Uh Oh Dynamo", the monster-of-the-day was a really tough, giant-size one that required the use of a really destructive mech to defeat it. While the monster was ultimately beaten, the city of Townsville was utterly trashed by the mech's weapons in the process. So, while the city was saved from the monster, it was harmed even worse by the mech that saved it, making the victory bittersweet.

@  Sabrblade : (10 November 2019 - 11:32 AM)

@Nevermore, sounds to me like what one might call a "bittersweet victory". The goal was met, but at great cost or by disastrous result that call into question if the achieved goal could even be called a success.

@  Arvegtor : (10 November 2019 - 09:40 AM)

Seems to be close enough to "Pyrrhic victory"

@  NotVeryKnightly : (10 November 2019 - 09:37 AM)

What do you get from putting the German term through a translator?

@  wonko the sane? : (10 November 2019 - 08:57 AM)

That is a ridiculously interesting concept. But I don't think english has a singular term for what you're describing.

@  Nevermore : (10 November 2019 - 08:28 AM)

Is there an English equivalent for what we Germans call "deductions in the B rating"? Context: Someone did something and suceeded on a technical level (as in, achieved the intended goal), but failed to some degree in the details, i.e. there was some collateral damage, or while a technical success, the end result is an aestetic failure. It can be used highly ironically, as in "barely achieved the intended goal, but failed so much in every aspect that's not purely technical that it might as well be considered an utter failure altogether." The German term is derived from the old judging syste in figure skating, which gave separate ratings for "technical merit" and "presentation", with the latter being the origin of the German term.

@  SHIELD Agent 47 : (10 November 2019 - 02:32 AM)

Huh. I did not know before today that "medieval" had an alternate spelling "mediaeval". Like "paleontology" and "palaeontology".

@  Maximus Ambus : (09 November 2019 - 04:15 PM)

'Beast Wars in underrated' the comment went. I exploded.

@  PlutoniumBoss : (09 November 2019 - 02:09 PM)

I feel like the best way to carry the Switch would be an under-arm torso holster.

@  Tm_Silverclaw : (09 November 2019 - 12:31 PM)

It's not. hell. If the 3DS zelda case just stretched a LITTLE more it would fit.

@  TheMightyMol... : (09 November 2019 - 03:38 AM)

I feel like the Switch Lite is a bit big to have hanging on your belt like that, but I don't take my Switch out with me often anyway.

@  Tm_Silverclaw : (09 November 2019 - 01:13 AM)

I must be the only one who wants a switch lite case with a belt loop. o.O

@  TheMightyMol... : (08 November 2019 - 03:03 PM)

I think a lot of the decline you see in Halloween is due to newcomers to Canada who don't really get it... I mean,there are only a handful of countries in the world that practice this particular oddity

It happens kind of after 27 or 28. The series pretty well doesn't let you miss where it kicks over to the movie.

Also, Climax Deka is about as out of continuity as can be, so its exact position in the movie order isn't important.

I think it goes between 27 and 28.

Episode 27 comes just short of having a huge flashing "MOVIE GOES HERE" neon sign before the preview

Well since we have a new thread I might as well throw up a new(ish) review:


?Kamen Rider Kabuto? could be considered the most ?textbook? Rider Series, incorporating all the classic elements from the franchise: insect-based heroes, constant motorcycle combat, a consistently-looming enemy threat and impressive character arcs throughout the series. This return to form after several years of radical alternate approaches was a big hit with fans and sellers.

These are my thoughts on the primary toyline from the series- "Cast Off Rider," abbreviated COR.



This Kabuto figure is a bulky, armored fighter- well insulated to guard against the enemy Worms' onslaught. I was afraid the armored parts (particularly around the arms) would hamper Kabuto's articulation but there actually IS an elbow joint built right into the armor to grant Kabuto a greater level of posability than expected.

Furthermore the armor is light enough to not interfere with Kabuto's balance while posing. I am certainly impressed with the design teams' forethought in this case.

What else is there to this figure?

Well, two words:

CAST OFF!

By pressing the button in the Kabuto Zector Belt, the heavy armor restraints are launched off (and I do mean ?Launched;? the armor is loaded on relatively powerful springs that I'm confident would indeed knock back any Worms if they had been prowling on my desk).



The resulting new form is the design most people think of when the name ?Kamen Rider Kabuto? comes up, red chest-armor with the signature beetle-horn helmet. Its much more visually impressive than the initial armored statge.

This form also allows Kabuto to access the signature combat power of the Masked Rider System: the ability to ?Clock UP? and fight the alien Worms on a hyper-accelerated ?Matrix-esque? scale. For better or worse, the action figure series cannot replicate this effect.

And unfortunately because of the launching points required for the armor system Kabuto does lose articulation in some areas- specifically the upper arms and shoulders. This is disappointing but Kabuto is still articulate enough to be enjoyable, and the uniqueness of the Cast Off system somewhat compensates for the lack of movement.

COR Kabuto comes with his signature weapons, the Kunai Gun- a laser pistol that also functions as an axe and contains a small dagger in the axe-handle for Clock-Up combat. All the necessary tools for Worm-hunting!




For reference this figure is slightly larger than a standard SH Figuart release in both height and bulk; meaning scale between other Riders isn't exact but I'd say its close enough to work.


My verdict on this Cast Off Rider? I'd say worth it; the Kabuto design is one of the best modern Kamen Riders to date and the Masked armor gimmick certainly sets it apart from others. If nothing else the enjoyment I get from this figure proves that SH Figuarts isn't always the only option for Kamen Rider collectors. icon-arcee.gif

Mostly.

From a comment in the blog:

QUOTE
But basically the dvds, while not having the dub track (thank god), was more than likely just an edited japanese language track added on top of the video used for the dub.

The subs simply did not sync up with the R2 videos (hence if some lines are mistimed, I tried my hugging best to shift them but I'm sure one or two lines slipped through the cracks).

Minor sequences were cut out, and those threw off the timing, so aside from the OP and ED, we had to have those lines tld

So I finished Go-onger! and I'm really really really glad I did. the series was pure distilled awesome!

- Great Characters/Engines! (Except Hanto, Birca and Bear V sometimes annoyed me but I still liked them. Hell I don't get why people don't like Bomper he was adorable)
- Made me actually give a jive about the Villains on more than one occasion
- Great Mecha fights/Combinations (Are the mini RPM zord packs worth it? my TRU still has heeeaaaaps I might grab)
- Greeeeeaaaaat Music
- As much as I love Silver to death her pose with Gold always looked weird...and her helmet always made me think the suit actor was depressed.
- Carrigator needed more screen time
- Let someone else win a race for once Speedor
- I'm guessing in the finale that was all the Engine and Villain voice actors as civilians right? (well some more obvious than others)
- Hooray for alcohol in a children's show! and not just sake!
- Monster's design and personalities were really fun


but yeah I loved it. I don't get why there seems to be a hatred for the series do people want everything to be Jetman or Timeranger or some jive?

now onto Goseiger...if I'm going to mock it I may as well watch it all. and on that note is Gosei Great worth getting?

The COR series seems like it must have been filled with hilarious consequences back in the day if those pieces just go flying off.

Nice review, though.
