So, now that Game of Thrones is over, when can we get back to The Dragon Prince?

@  unluckiness : (20 May 2019 - 12:19 AM)

Like, half of them nowadays are montages of tweet screencaps from the writer's inbox

@  unluckiness : (20 May 2019 - 12:18 AM)

lol you expected integrity from internet news

@  fourteenwings : (19 May 2019 - 11:33 PM)

I'm mostly confused how news sites went from "Analysing all the amazingness of Game of Thrones" to "Fans sure don't like this season!", like... way to prioritize clicks over a solid editorial opinion

@  fourteenwings : (19 May 2019 - 11:30 PM)

[and there's a recurring setting of a "derelict industrial site"] is this like the Toei Quarry?

@  MEDdMI : (19 May 2019 - 11:17 PM)

@Foffy and then that giant lasagna just tipped over and killed everyone, to be later known as the infamous Bad Monday event.

@  SHIELD Agent 47 : (19 May 2019 - 10:59 PM)

Ahahaha!!! Go read the reactions for yourself. To say anything more here risks spoiling the finale for subscribing Allsparkers, the quality of this season notwithstanding.

@  Foffy : (19 May 2019 - 10:59 PM)

pretty wild how heathcliff was in the game of thrones finale, i was not expecting that crossover

@  TM2-Megatron : (19 May 2019 - 10:48 PM)

were they still super pissed?

@  SHIELD Agent 47 : (19 May 2019 - 10:48 PM)

Well, as someone who is not into Game of Thrones, it sure was entertaining to open up social media this evening to unexpectedly see headlines about fan reactions to the finale. Lmao.

@  Nevermore : (19 May 2019 - 06:12 PM)

But it's also a SUPER-well known location in my region, so these extensive exterior shots without any post production alterations completely ruin the illusion for me.

@  Nevermore : (19 May 2019 - 06:11 PM)

I mean, I get why they did it: It's an existing location that fits the purpose, it's open for the public, and they had to shoot some scenes in my home state anyway to due a subsidizing deal.

@  Nevermore : (19 May 2019 - 06:09 PM)

Needless to say, it's not in Berlin, and even what's seen onscreen is waaaaay too modern for something that's supposed to exist in 1929 (even moreso as a derelict site in 1929). The structures seen haven't even been built until the 1960s!

@  Nevermore : (19 May 2019 - 06:07 PM)

I'm currently in the process of watching season 2 of Babylon Berlin, and there's a recurring setting of a "derelict industrial site" or whatever it's supposed to be on the show, and I easily recognize it as a place only a few minutes from where I live (it's actually a former ironworks site that's been turned into a public park).

@  Xellos : (19 May 2019 - 05:52 PM)

@  TM2-Megatron : (19 May 2019 - 05:49 PM)

it's nice to finally be thought of as exotic by somebody! lol

@  Nevermore : (19 May 2019 - 05:48 PM)

In an "I cannot possibly make my brain ignore the location I'm familiar with and pretend it's whatever the story claims it is" way?

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

Question for those of you living in exotic locations such as the US or the UK: If you watch a movie or a TV show that features a real-life location as a stand-in for someplace else, and you recognize the real-life location due to having been there in person, does that pull you out of the story?

@  Xellos : (19 May 2019 - 05:15 PM)

Nothing like coming home after a long day to find a bird in the house. And then once you sit down for a well-earned rest after leading the bird back outside, you find it had a friend. A friend who *really* doesn't understand how windows work...

@  PlutoniumBoss : (19 May 2019 - 01:26 PM)

Bingo. The big polls don't tell people what's actually happening because that doesn't sell.

@  fourteenwings : (19 May 2019 - 10:59 AM)

IIRC there are good polls but data is easily manipulated so they give people what they want to hear

@  wonko the sane? : (19 May 2019 - 10:58 AM)

The only way to get people interested in politics is to make into reality TV. So they lie to do it.

@  PlutoniumBoss : (19 May 2019 - 01:38 AM)

Yeah, polling these days is garbage.

Probably CycloneJoker Gold Xtreme (or whatever order that's supposed to be in) given its use in last year's Movie Wars. Which would follow anyway since Super TaToBa seems like it has more of a stance as the true super form for OOO rather than PuToTyra. In that case it might be more unfortunate if Magnet States doesn't debut in Movie Wars if it's going to be the TaJaDoru/FangJoker of Fourze.

Wow, tons of awesome news. Meteor looks cool, and now we can actually see his head he doesn't look anything like Ankh. Rocket State is about what I'd expect from a Rocket-based form, and it's nice to see that, at least to the mid-series point, Fourze isn't getting a berserk dino Switch. And as much as I think the Foodroids are stupid, I can't help but love the ice cream cone one just for how odd it is.

I know it won't happen, but the good development on the Kamen Rider Club in Fourze is making me wish that there could be a third Rider belt (since it seems likely Meteor is a new guy) that could just be passed around as the plot demands.

Kinda wish he had more color from the waist down, but the fact that his entire suit is a giant constellation makes up for it.

It seems pretty safe to say he's not Shun, because if he was he'd be doing the salute pose. I remember seeing somewhere (probably in the old thread) a name and stock photo of an actor playing a "mysterious high school kid" or something like that in the new Movie War, which sounds very like Terui's appearance at the end of Movie War 2010.

See, I'd already been hoping for that possibility on some level. Watching Kiva, "Team IXA" filling out over the course of the series was one of my favorite elements. It'd be cool to get something like that happening again since it has been a little while since the concept was last put to practice at all.

Which will also guarantee that any sub-Figuarts toy of it will likely look horribly, boringly plain since the starfield deco is probably cost-prohibitive except for Figuarts. I'd bet it'll be a really short wait for Meteor to get an upgrade that adds some more colors in somehow.

I kind of want them to remember that the Powerdizer is also a launch platform and that the Machine Full-Speeder can launch in to low orbit. Sometime before Meteor debuts, mind you, since I'm sure that gimmick will get used at least once around then.

They could've done so much better with Super TaToBa's design.

They threw away one of the strongest points of the OOOs design (the main black body) and give us a multicolored wreck. I love the Taka Brave head on TaJaDoru but without the green eyes here it just looks messy and feels like they did just rip it off that other suit.

They should've just 'Brave-ified' the Tora and Batta parts; bigger, more ornate claws and gauntlets for the arms and some greaves for some added weight to the legs. Put a cape on it and say's it's the true form of King OOOs!

I do like Meteor though. His eyes look like Super-1's, I wonder if that's intentional?

RaToraTa and GataKiriBa should probably have had amped up parts anyway to begin with, and then they could have just combined all those aspects. I think trying to introduce that now would just seem weird. Mind you, I am not at all okay with how that suit looks either. I think yellow bodysuits for Riders needs to be put on a no-fly list. It only barely worked for Wing Den-O, and just because it fit that Sieg was ridiculous above all.

I LOVE Super TaToBa!

"Disabled people don’t 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 isn’t a “special need”. It’s a basic human right. It’s a leveling of the playing field that allows us the same opportunities and chances as non-disabled people."
