Morthrax in season 1, Morthrey in season 2 (and I spelled them phonetically; I don't know the official spellings)

@  PlutoniumBoss : (21 August 2019 - 01:58 AM)

A chef version named Hot Pot.

@  SHIELD Agent 47 : (21 August 2019 - 01:57 AM)

Does that hold true for the accent of any British Allsparkers here?

@  SHIELD Agent 47 : (21 August 2019 - 01:56 AM)

I was reading some GoBots + Transformers discussion on Twitter and saw a British user point out that "BuggyMan" can sound like "boogeyman".

@  Otaku : (20 August 2019 - 11:28 PM)

@Sabrblade Part of me wishes I had purchased the coffee cup with that comic when it was for sale.  The rest of me knows I didn't have the money for it. XD

@  Sabrblade : (20 August 2019 - 07:59 PM)

That's the Superdeformers version. He uses the MacGuffix to warm up his coffee.

@  TheMightyMol... : (20 August 2019 - 07:56 PM)

A bodybuilder version named Hot Bod.

@  unluckiness : (20 August 2019 - 07:43 PM)

A psychedelic-colored repaint named Pot Rod

@  Sean Whitmore : (20 August 2019 - 07:42 PM)

Runner-up dumb idea: A Bizarro-like clone of Hot Rod named Not Rod.

@  RichardT1977 : (20 August 2019 - 06:25 PM)

One of the dumbest TF ideas I ever had: Hot Rod (by whatever means) produces a son, who is named "Go-Cart".

@  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.

@  Maximus Ambus : (19 August 2019 - 02:16 PM)

Babylon 5 must come to Blu Ray.

@  MEDdMI : (19 August 2019 - 07:28 AM)

Even in the winter, he has to clear the roads of snow.

@  TheMightyMol... : (19 August 2019 - 03:46 AM)

His work is never done.

@  Pennpenn : (19 August 2019 - 03:06 AM)

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

Hasbro's big push for the Venom film appears to be some reruns of prior stuff from Marvel Legends and Ultimate Spider-Man.  New packaging and some alternate parts for the Legends.  I still suspect that some movie figures will get rolled into the Into the Spiderverse Legends wave.

This week was ML Clearance Goodness Week.

Darkhawk and Vance Astro for $5 a piece at Walmart?  I have not idea who Vance Astro is or why he has a shield, but for $5, who could resist?  Darkhawk is goofy 90s Marvel fun.

 

And then Amazon had Mr. and Mrs. Beetle for $9-10 a piece.  Again, no clue about either character, but since it's February, I thought it would be neat do be able to do this:

Also, I needed the BAF pieces so there's that.

WalMart leaked what was likely to be a big surprise for Toy Fair: 10th Anniversary MCU Legends, both new molds and remolds.

Photos shown for a new mold Iron Man Mark 7 (with adjustable wings!) new mold Crossbones, and Civil War Captain America with improved Chris Evans likeness.

Other releases will be for First Avenger (Likely to finally give us a Red Skull) Thor 2, and Ant Man. (Yellowjacket, I guess?)


Being part of any fandom is fundamentally embarassing.

Some leaks from Avengers: Infinity War

https://marvelousnew...52&itemid=22780

 

6" figures from the first wave of basic figures.  Captain America, Black Widow, Iron Man, StarLord, and Thor.  All figures feature basic articulation and Infinity Stones which tie into the Hero Vision thing.

 

I'm just hoping we get more than a wave for this thing...too many major characters to do with this film and Hasbro's been VERY conservative with these sorts of lines in the past.

There are Amazon preorders up for Iron Man and the Crossbones set. And there's an imagine on Fwoosh of a Scarlet Witch/Vision 2-pack. This certainly is the year for filling up those movie display shelves.

Hmm... an entire wave dedicated to symbiotes and the only one they mentioned that interests me is Scream.
Now that's some real monkey's paw nonsense.

(Venom and Carnage would interest me if I didn't already have good versions of them.)


edit:
Is Pork Grind going to be the BaF? It'd be weird if Spider-ham just came with his head and that's it.

 

Now that we're getting a redone Kaine can we get a Hummingbird?

Maybe she can be in a two pack with Mania called "Sidekicks of the concurrent anti-hero Spider-mans of the early 2010s".

Finally an updated Bishop. Omega Red looks so good. The new Magneto looks good, hell tide me over until a Classic repaint. Classic Sabretooth and Apocalyse look great too.

Whats the difference between the Retail and Thanos Imperative Gladiator?

Doc Ock and the updated Scarlet Spidey look amazing. Poison looks great, I think Ill use him as a stand-in for Flash Thompson Anti-Venom.

The Venom wave packaging is absolutely beautiful.

I realized after I said this that the Pork Grind head is probably meant to be an alternate head for Venom.

In that case this wave might be the first whole wave I consider buying in awhile. I've really cut down on buying ML recently due to money/space issues.

 

I still need to track down the Space Venom wave at some point before that though.

For those interested, I just found the Sasquatch Deadpool wave (minus Cable, for some reason) on toysrus.com. Oh, and they qualified for BOGO 50% off. I got my confirmation e-mail and everything. :)

That Ant-man & Stinger two pack might be the first ML multi-pack I actually buy.
I've read a bit of MC2, and Stinger/Cassie is a boring character in it, but I really like her costume.

Too bad it's a TRU exclusive.

I'm very happy I went ahead and preordered Mysterio. (He sold out first, of course.)

 

As it turned out, my local pickup 2-pack wasn't in stock. Fortunately, they still honored my BOGO, so I ended up with Dom, DP, and X-23 for $40. :)

Got lucky yesterday. The Lizard SM wave hit one of my Walgreens. Nabbed Spider-Woman and Lasher for $12.99 each. Wasn't going to pick them up, but at that price, I couldn't resist. I'll be checking the other WG today for anyone else. :D
