@  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)

@  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

Found both Agent Venom and Prototype Boba Fett at two seperate Walgreens back on the 6th. I was out hunting Walking Dead Pop figures for a friend's birthday next month and wasn't aware that these were released yet. Picked them up for two other friends.

My pre-order for 4inch Infinite Cyclops is in, and I'm just wondering if it's worth it. I don't really like that costume, as I liked the Cassaday version better. I like Bianchi's art, but his refresh costumes for Wolverine and Cyclops left me a bit cold. The huge X was a bit off, and the gold bands for Cyclops didn't work for me, and they're not the bands on the figure, like the costume is supposed to have. I also don't get why all the elements are gold, the bands, the piping, but the visor is still silver. It's from BBTS, and it's $13.99US. I already bought two of the Legends Cyclops, which are in the same Pile Of Loot. They're in the current Bachalo costume. It's very different for Cyclops, and I don't get how the costume works, as the X is usually not actually covering where his eyes would be. That aside, I like the simplicity, and how graphic it is, and I like it for being wildly different from anything he's worn, other than the silver-age costume later slightly updated by Cockrum. I think that was originally Werner Roth's design? He did a great job with Cyclops, but it's tempered by the monstrosity of his Angel costume. The Lee costume was just a slight tweak of that costume, and not as different as people cry about.

 

Sorry, rambling. Anyway. I didn't get the other Previews Cyclops, which was in this costume, because that wave was a total hug-up. They cancelled the best figure, Rogue, in my favourite costume of hers. They showed a ton of variants that they didn't make, and the ordering was hugged up. I think most people stayed away when it became evident what was going on. I don't regret missing anything from there. So, the Bachalo costume Cyclops was $12.99, on clearance, but even at $20 I'd have bought it.

 

So, is this Infinite one worth it? Is the body used a big step-up that makes this a must-buy, or is it just forgettable, and the first 4inch Cyclops I'll actually pass on.

 

Speaking of hug-ups, did anyone end up biting on the All-New X-Men/Silver Age X-Men Legends set? If so, was it worth it? It's the costumes I've always wanted in Legends, but the bodies used, and the allocation for new parts, left me a bit cold. Add in colour mismatches, which is kinda unacceptable when they're all supposed to be wearing the same thing, and the fact that they completely didn't at all do Iceman as he looked then (for those that wanted the silver-age team, and that's what i wanted, although I do get All-New X-Men, just haven't read it besides the first issue yet) was the final dealbreaker. But I'm open to change, if anyone vouches for it. I guess something might be better than nothing.

I wouldn't go so far as to vouch for it, as it has all the issues you mention and more (Angel's wings are embarrassingly cheap and keep an eye out for bad QC on Jean's gangly limbs). I'd only go so far as to say I bit the bullet, and while I wasn't blown out of the water, I also didn't suffer terribly from regret.

That's probably a better endorsement than I was expecting, to be honest. I hadn't paid much attention to Angel's wings. I assumed they'd be fine, as all Angel/Archangel wings have been pretty good in any Legends/Classics version. Thanks for pointing that out.

Finally found Agent Venom. I was a little worried. The first Walgreen's I went to had  the normal Spider-men and Electro, and I thought I was too late, but the second had 3 of them.

 

He's pretty much what I expected. Not technically the best Marvel Legends figure I own, but I love the character/identity too much to not get it.

 

I also picked up Hero Mashers Venom. He's a pretty neat classic Venom figure, but I don't see myself buying a bunch of these.

I saw Electro, movie Spider-man, and Superior Spider-man at both Walgreens I went to.

I don't know for sure if there's supposed to be more with them, or if Venom replaced all of the "swap" guys.

I'm pretty sure The Mechanic had arms.

 

So just Avengers 2 Cap and Hulk for Legends on display?

I'm not normally into movie figures, but I do kind of like that Captain America. If only he had head wings.

 

Am I seeing waist/torso joints on Brunnhilde and Miles? I thought they were getting rid of those.

 

edit: Looks like I got a bit mixed up. Valkyrie is also Legends.

She's looks all right, I wonder if they could have made her hair poseable?

One of the bigger news out of NYCC to me was that the Avengers line won't seem to have a 3.75 figure line, but be part of the "2.5 system" Hasbro introduced with Guardians of the Galaxy.

 

I'm still wondering, as with RiD, if Hasbro isn't doing a "staggered release" with its line, and saving larger priced items for the fall/Christmas when kids tend to get to get more toys.
