@  TM2-Megatron : (20 August 2019 - 06:06 PM)

In its current form, DS9 is eventually going to fade from the public consciousness. Even on modern top-of-the-line displays, those old SD masters look like trash, and there's only so long younger generations will be able to stomach them. I can only imagine how they'll look when everyone has ultra-short throw projectors casting 120" images on their walls

@  TM2-Megatron : (20 August 2019 - 06:05 PM)

It's definitely offputting, but Trek is one property I'd be willing to hold my nose and open my wallet for. I care far more about DS9 being available in the long-term, and for future generations, than my distaste for corporate greed

@  Rycochet : (20 August 2019 - 05:39 PM)

'Pay up now and fund this remaster we'll be able to profit from for decades, as this will be your only chance to get that show you like on BluRay... Until the superdeluxe re-release with even more stuff and a metal box.'

@  Rycochet : (20 August 2019 - 05:14 PM)

Stuff they're intending to remaster anyway for their streaming service would become crowdfunding projects.

@  Rycochet : (20 August 2019 - 05:09 PM)

I love DS9, but there is something offputting about giving money direct to Viacom for a project like this, probably because it would set a bad precedent. Given how moneygrubbing they are, it would quickly become their go-to solution for any old show they want remastered rather than dipping their hands in their own deep pockets.

@  TM2-Megatron : (20 August 2019 - 02:48 PM)

A crowdfunding probably wouldn't be that outrageous. The DS9 Documentary "What We Left Behind" that was recently released on blu-ray managed to raise nearly $650,000 on IndieGoGo. Imagine how much fans might contribute if it were guaranteed the remaster would happen provided the goal was reached.

@  TheMightyMol... : (20 August 2019 - 04:10 AM)

Let me call on my friend Dr Rockso, the Rock 'n Roll Clown. (He does cocaine.)

@  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.

Everyone quickly gets sick of flubbing the name and collectively agree to just call the combiner "Roadworks"

@  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...

@  TheMightyMol... : (18 August 2019 - 11:30 AM)

Skywarp can barely form a coherent sentence half the time.

@  Maximus Ambus : (18 August 2019 - 11:24 AM)

If Cyclonus combines into Galvatronus, does Skywarp form Megatronic?

@  Pennpenn : (18 August 2019 - 09:12 AM)

There's something weird about starting to type Good Omens into a media store's search bar and having it come up with Queen's greatest hits compliations.

@  Tm_Silverclaw : (18 August 2019 - 12:07 AM)

Well then they need to re-release Vector Prime. :D Of course I would accept Vector Prime Headmaster with Alpha Trion as the head.

@  unluckiness : (18 August 2019 - 12:05 AM)

That said, the bendy sword is ridiculous.

@  unluckiness : (18 August 2019 - 12:05 AM)

I dunno, the old one is still pretty good by modern standards and the clunkiness is somewhat in-character.

@  Tm_Silverclaw : (17 August 2019 - 08:37 PM)

We need a new vector prime

Wow, those look like Happy Meal toys.  I saw that TRU has some exclusive repaints of Fury/Ironman and Widow/Cap.  The Widow one looks pretty good with the blue highlights, but since I already have that mould from the last time it was released, it was an easy pass.

I saw those this weekend, minus the Witch and including War Machine. The figures are at best Happy Meal toys, and that's sad considering what we just had here recently with Thor Dark World and Cap Winter Soldier. I understand the cost involved, materials, labor to make, and other factors all come in before the figures hit stores but can someone explain how we went from MU, Marvel 3.75" Infinite, and the previously mentioned movie figures (as well as Avengers) to the Iron Man 3 and these bad attempts at pleasing the fanbase? Really sad to see some decent characters yet between the size, articulation, and paint jobs on a lot of them lately, ain't worth squat. I would have liked to have had a couple Ultrons and Iron Legions to backup MU Ultron. Sadly I think even he would wonder WTF.

May be old news, but a number of the Walmarts here in Houston got a bunch of the Cpt Marvel/Scarlett Witch wave of Legends in. One even had a display set up in the main aisle by toys.

BBTS has the Guardians boxset up for pre-order.

I don't know if it's exclusive to them as well, or if they're just buying some from EE.

 

That cloak thing Gamora has is really turning me off of this set. 

 

edit: I didn't notice it before, but in the in-box pic it looks like she has a normal plastic cape as well.

Hmm...Wish I noticed that before EE's coupon code expired.

I guess Hasbro was originally looking to shop this set out to mass market (probably TRU following up on the All New X-Men box set), or else they probably wouldn't have bothered covering Gamora up like that (see SDCC Satana), both on the package photos, and with the way the figure is packaged.

I'd assume the cloak-thing could just be taken off and tossed in a bin.

 

Have we even seen whether she has her comic ahem "uniform" underneath it?

I think Gamora, in the comics at least, looks kind of weird without any sort of cape or cloak, so if she only had that soft-goods thing I wouldn't be able to get rid of it.

 

The colors and art make me assume they're going for a pre-GotG look. It looks like what she wore around the time of Annihilation, but I'm not really an expert on Gamora.

 

edit:Looks like she wore something like that after the main modern Guardians book as well.

Although I remember reading that issue and thinking the continuity was a little weird.

When the box was first revealed, with cardboard cutouts in place of the figures inside, I'm pretty sure the picture was of Gamora in her sling bikini.  And the boxart for this set does depict her in that costume as well, just mostly hidden by her cloak so you only see her cleavage, and not, well, everything else.

I just got my Hobgoblin Spider-man wave in the mail.

Only paint problems is that Spider-man has a couple of scuffs, and Daredevil has a spot on his nose.

Stuff that doesn't bother me much.

 

I'm liking Anti-Venom more than I thought he would. Not perfect, general proportions could be better including the thickness of his spider, but he looks better than he did in pictures.

 

The packaging seems to not have treated the Spider-ladies well. Both of them have slight curves to their legs, and also Mayday has a stiff elbow joint.

What's the solution for that stuff? Boiling water? A hairdryer?

 

Hobgoblin is cool, but I have not yet been able to plug his head on securely. The hood keep getting in the way.

Also wish his wings were articulated in some way. I don't remember if they were at all in the comics.

 

 

Other than I have my standard complaints for Marvel Legends, specifically those of the Spider flavor.

More of them should come with alternate hands, and they should have made a Spider-girl body that was as good as the Spider-man body considering how many character use it. Also, the Spider-man body itself still seems like it could be better. I'm having trouble with crouching poses.

So I noticed a miss-assembly on my Anti-Venom after that last post.

His lower torso is backwards. He has abs on his back, and I'm fine with it.

I actually like the smoother stomach, and the only real negative is that there's slightly more resistance bending him forward than backwards.

 

 

The Ant-Man Legends wave is up for preorder at Amazon, TRU.com, and BBTS.

 

And BBTS also has the Hulkbuster and Rhino BAF waves up.

 

Hmm, Wasp and Movie Ant-man have separate pre-orders.

The villains are cool for people that have a connection with them, but I don't, so I may just get those two.

 

I'm all about the Rhino wave though.

....bwah?!?!?!

 

Awesome.

 

In other awesome-news, I finally found an untouched wave of Spider-Man legends so Spider-Reilly-Girl and Spider-Man Classic are now mine.

 

I would have picked up Daredevil, but he looked to have some funkiness going on with his torso joint.  He was trying to chest-bump me through the packaging.  Sorry, bromigo DD, I'll have to pick you up later.

 

EDIT:  Got my Spider-Family setup complete.

IMG_5576.jpg

 

Having Reilly-Girl makes me realise how badly we really need a new Ben Reilly - that deco is nowhere near as good what Hasbro can do now.  Also, I really need to put on Predaking's arm.

Between Mayday and classic Scarlet Spider I don't think I'm going to have much of a need for a Sensational Spider-man, but I wouldn't say no to it.

But in the current, digitized world, trivial information is accumulating every second, preserved in all its triteness. Never fading, always accessible. Rumors about petty issues, misinterpretations, slander... All this junk data preserved in an unfiltered state, growing at an alarming rate. It will only slow down social progress, reduce the rate of evolution. You seem to think that our plan is one of censorship. What we propose to do is not to control content, but to create context.
