Is Skyrim worth playing in 2020?

@  Paladin : (28 February 2020 - 07:45 AM)

when you use the character as a header image for a frontpage story, i think you lose the right to complain about anyone else "spoiling things."

@  Nevermore : (28 February 2020 - 04:45 AM)

Did I say that? I must have been joking.

@  Sabrblade : (27 February 2020 - 11:46 PM)

And you say you have no sense of humor, Nevermore. ;)

Gonzo, start a thread in the main "Transformers Discussion" forum with that information in the title instead.

@  Sabrblade : (27 February 2020 - 08:33 PM)

Gonzo, please don't go spoiling things like that in the chat box.

Toy Galaxy is my favorite overall toy-related channel on YouTube.

@  fourteenwings : (26 February 2020 - 11:29 PM)

Last year's coverage via Toy YouTubers was brilliant. However, since YouTube's new (unfortunately necessary) guidelines the companies barely invited any of them back, so all we get is super-popular collector's info.

@  PlutoniumBoss : (26 February 2020 - 09:19 PM)

If it weren't for Toy Galaxy's coverage video, I would not have known about the Defenders of the Earth figures. New toys of Flash Gordon, The Phantom, and Mandrake the Magician? In 2020? I would have said you were smoking something strong.

@  Nevermore : (26 February 2020 - 06:32 PM)

So the question is... has Madagascar closed down all its ports yet?

@  Nevermore : (26 February 2020 - 06:31 PM)

A couple that got infected attended a Carnival event with over 300 people in attendance.

@  Nevermore : (26 February 2020 - 06:25 PM)

So the Corona virus keeps getting closer to where I live. Several confirmed cases in my federal state already.

@  Steevy Maximus : (26 February 2020 - 02:20 PM)

Man, only having collector sites to get Toy Fair news from sucks. Did you know there is a 4" line of kids figures for the new Avengers game coming?

@  Dekafox : (26 February 2020 - 11:54 AM)

Since Omega already exists they could name it Auntie

@  Otaku : (26 February 2020 - 10:07 AM)

Oh, and one last Titan,provided we can fudge things a bit to include a character from Transformers: Animated; how about something at least resembling TF:A Omega Supreme?

@  Otaku : (26 February 2020 - 10:05 AM)

How about they find a way to make a mold they can use for both Broadside and Tidal Wave?

@  Maximus Ambus : (26 February 2020 - 02:13 AM)

Optimus Maximus, the mysterious titan of the Arisen, also Iaconus from Cyberverse.

@  TriBlurr : (25 February 2020 - 12:41 AM)

I think the only other Titan class character that would interest me after Scoponok would be Tidal Wave

@  TheMightyMol... : (24 February 2020 - 07:34 PM)

A Titan would have more room for other toys to hang out, assuming one has the table space for it.

@  Darth Gonzo : (24 February 2020 - 03:32 PM)

Play wise which would be better a Commander Class Aircraft Carrier Mode Broadside or a Titan Class Aircraft Carrier Mode Broadside?

@  PlutoniumBoss : (24 February 2020 - 01:53 PM)

I'd be interested in a deluxe or voyager Fort Max in Armada flashback red-and-green.

@  TheMightyMol... : (24 February 2020 - 10:49 AM)

I'd honestly be more interested in Commander-class Scorponok and Fort Max. I don't have the space for Titans.

@  Maximus Ambus : (24 February 2020 - 10:44 AM)

Make Commander class city bots to annoy collectors too

@  TheMightyMol... : (24 February 2020 - 10:43 AM)

Make two Broadsides. One Voyager-sized that only turns into a jet, and one Titan-sized that only turns into an aircraft carrier. Piss off everyone on both sides of the scale.

@  Rodimus Supreme : (24 February 2020 - 10:41 AM)

Since they seem to also go by the oh-so holy cartoon scale thing, he'd probably be a Commander Class figure.

@  wonko the sane? : (24 February 2020 - 10:34 AM)

Broadside is an aircraft carrier. He should probably be metroplex sized.

@  Rodimus Supreme : (24 February 2020 - 10:21 AM)

Broadside's more of a Commander Class.

@  Darth Gonzo : (24 February 2020 - 04:47 AM)

I think Broadside should be the next Titan Class figure.

@  wonko the sane? : (23 February 2020 - 09:38 PM)

I tan nicely! But also have a family history of cancer... so... yeah, pasty for me it is.

@  Otaku : (23 February 2020 - 04:22 PM)

I really do begin to get sunburned after about 5 minutes of direct exposure, nowadays.  Side effect of already being pasty then going on a particular medication.  Yay?

@  TheMightyMol... : (23 February 2020 - 01:36 PM)

Yeah, if there are two ways of resolving a story, RTD almost inevitably chooses the most outlandish possible. The Season 2 Finale wasn't so bad until he went and brought the Daleks into it (RTD loooooooooooves his Daleks), but all the others have had some pretty doofy resolutions and conclusions.

At the same time, I think that's a flaw of RTD writing "Grand". In smaller, more intimate settings such as Midnight and Waters of Mars, the man makes my jaw drop.

Also, he has a tendency to kill off villains that would have been absolutely incredible as reoccurring characters. The Dalek Emperor, The Cult of Skaro (Which did manage to make it to a second appearance before they were all promptly killed off), The Family of Blood (Seriously. Why would you get rid of Time Jumping, Body Hopping Hunters?), and especially Miss Hartigan. Even removing the Cyberman element, that woman would have made a formidable opponent for the Doctor. Just free her from Cyber Control, give her a Dalek Temporal Shifter, and BOOM! You got yourself a new foe for the Doctor to deal with from time to time.


That really is the problem with NuWho...not enough reoccurring original threats. The Weeping Angels were a start, but I'd like to see more.

With 'The Next Doctor', RTD panned the ending as early as the BBC commentary released later that night. His revised idea he came up with after filming basically involved her feeling sorrow over her actions and warping the Cyber King into the time vortex to be destroyed. Certainly a hell of alot better then 'she screams, everyone randomly explodes like balloons'.

By the way, Doctor Who is involved in the BBC Christmas trailer. Involves a bunch of their stars having a Bing Crosby style Christmas party. The Doctor and Amy are playing Twister with a Cyberman.

http://doctorwhotv.c...eboot-28713.htm

QUOTE
We can all breathe a sigh of relief now. Steven Moffat has decided to set the record straight on the Doctor Who movie and flat-out rubbishes everything David Yates has talked about.

Moffat said on Twitter today: ?To clarify: any Doctor Who movie would be made by the BBC team, star the current TV Doctor and certainly NOT be a Hollywood reboot.?

Moffat then added:?David Yates, great director, was speaking off the cuff, on a red carpet. You?ve seen the rubbish I talk when I?m cornered.?

Moffat elaborated: ?[Doctor Who] is a vitally important BBC brand with a huge international audience [that] not even Hollywood can start from scratch.

?There simply are no developed plans for a Doctor Who movie at the moment. If and when the movie happens it will need to star television?s Doctor Who ? and there?s only ever one of those at a time.?

?Whatever happens,? he continues, ?the BBC and BBC Worldwide will work together to ensure that we don?t just get a movie, we get the movie that everyone wants.?

So that?s the end of that, for now. Though the question remains, will David Yates have anything to do with a movie if it gets made? Or is he just delusional?

They struggle to film a 14 episode series in the allotted time as it is. There's no way the star of the show can be loaned out to make a film without causing a disruption to TV filming.

Either it stars the current TV doctor and the series has a gap year, or they continue putting out 14 episodes a year, but cast a stranger in the film.

I hate both options, which is why I'd hate for the film to become a reality.

And yet as I said before if someone offered BBC the right money for the movie rights and the BBC blinked we would get something like the Cushing movies. It's not like BBC hasn't screwed Doctor Who over before (As in killing it off, WITH PREJUDICE, in the 80's) to leasing out the Doctor to a studio to be played by Cushing...

But hey Moffat knows exactly what's going to happen because Doctor Who is HIS baby and not the property of the BBC.

Actually no, only 6 mins existed from Galaxy 4 episode 1 and that was it. There was very few visual refences, only one blurry photo of the monster from it! Now we have an entire episode!

Also now we have two eps of Underwater Menace, I think the liklihood is high that the remaining ones will be animated.


While the two eps found won't have been top of everyone's lists (mine is Massacre part 4 I think, if we had to have one ep return), it's absolutely mindblowing to have two returned! There's been so few turn up (after 1992, it was only one ep in 99 and one ep in 04) that many had thought it impossible that any others would be recovered.

There is a #3, but it's not necessarily any better, which is for them to regenerate the Doctor on TV, but have the *OUTGOING* Doctor star in the movie. [There were lots of rumours about this happening with Tennant when he was leaving]

The obvious downside to this, of course, is that it would completely undercut the new guy...

I think the Beeb are much more careful with Who these days. RTD claimed the success of the revival has convinced them it's a long term brand and things like the hiatus year are designed to assure that. There may be missteps (Moffat isn't happy they axed Confidential and we've seen merchandise go up) but there are apparently plans to give it a rest and then bring it back if the majority tire of it again. I'm sure right now especially they'd love the money a movie would bring in but first you have to finance said movie anyway.

@ Missing Episodes: I feel such a sense of geek pride that after nearly 40 years since these were lost, we've recovered 2 more. While not as pined for as Tenth Planet part 4, or as momentous as the recovery of Dalek's Masterplan Part 2 back in 02, this is still an amazing find! I wonder how they will handle releasing these on DVD. It's not enough for a solo release really, and repacking the Lost to Time collection wouldn't be economical. Maybe add them as a bonus disk to some other release.

@Movie: As much as the brand is soaring, I just don't see a movie happening, regardless of who the Doctor is or whether it is in continuity or not. The only story worth telling on that scale is the Time War, and anything less would be hard follow up as we return to the regular series.
