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.

Babylon 5 must come to Blu Ray.

@  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

@  Paladin : (17 August 2019 - 03:59 PM)

just don't leave Cybertron Vector Prime out in the sun or his wings will melt.

@  SHIELD Agent 47 : (17 August 2019 - 03:17 PM)

@Nevermore Duly noted.

@  Rycochet : (17 August 2019 - 02:12 PM)

I have three Cybertron Vector Primes, wouldn't throw them around though. I love that design too much,

@  TheMightyMol... : (17 August 2019 - 02:03 PM)

I'm just picturing someone throwing a pile of Vector Prime toys around. I don't know why.

@  Rycochet : (17 August 2019 - 01:42 PM)

Multi Vector Assault mode is what they go into when they think anyone's even slightly infringing on their IP.

@  Ashley : (17 August 2019 - 02:30 AM)

They MIGHT have done it for Star Trek Online ships, but even if they have that'd be a fairly specific category.

@  Tieria Prime : (17 August 2019 - 02:11 AM)

Hi friends

@  Nevermore : (17 August 2019 - 02:05 AM)

So only if Viacom/Paramount has actively trademarked the term "multi-vector assault mode", offered goods or services under that name and has been offering those goods and services in recent years, Hasbro cannot offer goods or services under that name in the same category.

@  Nevermore : (17 August 2019 - 02:04 AM)

And they need to be consistently used on top of that.

@  Nevermore : (17 August 2019 - 02:03 AM)

Even if they are trademarked.

@  Nevermore : (17 August 2019 - 02:02 AM)

Words and terms used in dialogue shouldn't be affected.

@  Nevermore : (17 August 2019 - 02:02 AM)

Also, the trademarks only apply in commerce. You use them to identify goods and services.

@  Ashley : (16 August 2019 - 11:55 PM)

Yeah, you also need to apply for it. They might've never bothered to trademark that.

@  NotVeryKnightly : (16 August 2019 - 08:37 PM)

Trademark affects titles and product names, not every word in writing. For example, DC called their character "Captain Marvel" as recently as 2014.

@  SHIELD Agent 47 : (16 August 2019 - 08:30 PM)

You missed my point. I was addressing the usage of the phrase in dialogue. Hence the quotation marks.

@  Pennpenn : (16 August 2019 - 08:00 PM)

Well, they can anyway, they might just not be able to call it that...

@  SHIELD Agent 47 : (16 August 2019 - 06:54 PM)

It would be awesome for Transformers to have the likes of Overlord and Sky Lynx "engage multi-vector assault mode!"

@  SHIELD Agent 47 : (16 August 2019 - 06:53 PM)

It is a shame that "multi-vector assault mode" is probably trademarked for Star Trek.

@  unluckiness : (15 August 2019 - 10:54 PM)

Only if they manage to boomer-proof it

@  RichardT1977 : (15 August 2019 - 08:16 PM)

(and would that really be a bad thing?)

@  RichardT1977 : (15 August 2019 - 08:16 PM)

Wouldn't a cybernetic singularity actually remove one or more of the top levels of Maslow's hierarchy?

@  Steevy Maximus : (15 August 2019 - 07:40 PM)

Tomy made some strange selections on their first wave of Tomica releases for the US

@  TheMightyMol... : (15 August 2019 - 06:26 PM)

Resistance is futile.

@  wonko the sane? : (15 August 2019 - 06:20 PM)

I would be down for a nice cybernetic singularity if it meant we could actually reach the top of maslow's hierarchy.

@  Ashley : (15 August 2019 - 05:44 PM)

I'm pretty sure the origin of the villains in GaoGaiGar was a computer being told to reduce the stress of the population and it's answer was to assimilate everyone.

@  Maximus Ambus : (15 August 2019 - 01:53 PM)

Executions then followed by nano reanimation then cryonic suspension until everyone you know is deactivated for good so you can build happiness in a future society.

@  wonko the sane? : (15 August 2019 - 01:47 PM)

As opposed to the ones that lie already? As a civilization: we're emotional and socially broken. Might as well have the society that at least wants us to be "happy".

There is another wave of Black Panther movie Marvel Legends coming too.  Includes Claw, T'Challa, T'Chaka, Ayo, and a blacked out cardboard cut out that is Shuri in her battle outfit.  So she must be coming there too.

I really liked T'Chaka's suit, glad it's getting a figure. And obviously Shuri is welcome, I can replace that 5 POA figure of her now.

I'm hoping that M'Baku gets made at some point too.

Some great reveals at the Hasbro panel.

 

-Archangel re-release with alternate Death and unmasked blonde heads

-Kingpin BAF wave for Spidey

-AIM soldier 2-pack

-Vintage versions of Hawkeye and Vision

-Professor X with hoverchair coming to the Riders line

-Professor X without hoverchair coming to the next X-Men wave, so, I dunno, hope you've always wanted him wearing 2 different color suits

-Skullbuster also coming to that X-Men wave, so hopefully we'll be seeing more Reavers in the future

Glad I waited on Archangel.  This one looks to have the matte-finish on the costume.  I hated the metallic finish on the last one.  Pre-ordered.

I think I'll just use the new hoverchair-less Prof to switch out with my ToyBiz Prof's wheelchair and put him with my 80s X-Men.  Hoverchair Prof goes with Gold/Blue, obviously.

 

Still, it's a bit disappointing to have a regular Prof X release that didn't use the 90s power suit.  I guess customisers will enjoy another suit figure being available.

 

Yay Gambit.  I need to retire that pleather ToyBiz version.  I'm surprised that the jacket hasn't frayed/dusted like poor ol' Tom Jane Punisher's jacket did.

Yeah, because Forces of Destiny did SO WELL  :rolleyes

And I'm even seeing DC Superhero Girls may be cooling down as well.  At least I'm assuming so since it seems all my local retailers have long dumped those lines.

 

I can get expanding the scope of a branding...but this seems like it's...diffusing the brand.  Yes, girls can like stuff like Star Wars and Marvel.  Doesn't mean there's a huge untapped source of buyers willing to buy dolls of those brand, which are traditionally very male centric.  I've seen it in WWE as well- is there really THAT big a market of girls wanting doll representations of female wrestlers?

 

Kind of feels like that instead of adding diversity to a standard product line (see the influx of female characters in the "normal" Transformers product lines)...they're dumping resources into side lines that seem actively designed to drive away the traditional core buying base FOR those characters as a toys.

 

You guys generally know how I roll, but...it feels like an agenda being pushed by Disney for the sake of an agenda instead of a natural extension of a brand.

Typhoid Mary is a tragic figure.  I found her at Target today and bought her only because:

1.  I need the Venom piece.

2.  I need the sword for Psylocke.

3.  The two Venom figures on the peg had shit paint-apps.

 

But it's a really great figure.  The head-sculpt is amazing (too bad half of it is painted white), and the paint apps and sculpt are detailed.  I really ought to like her because everything about her is well done.

But I don't because I don't have any attachment/knowledge of the character.

 

Ah well, I'm putting her on the Spider-Man shelf with all the other foes (although I think she's more of a DD-villain).

Maybe she'll end up on Netflix DD or Cloak/Dagger, and then I'll give a crap about the character.

I just got Kaine from the SP//DR wave and boy he's great. I did get a QC issue with one of the legs where it just came apart, but that was easily fixable.

 

I like that he's on the new 2099 buck. He's more muscular than both Pete and Ben.


Edited by Internet Jesus, 23 August 2018 - 01:16 AM.

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.

Aww poop - the show I don't want to watch.  Oh wait, that's JJ.

I kid - I saw that right after I did an internet query to read up on the character.

 

Hopefully, she'll be a cool villain.
