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".

@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

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

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)

@  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

Looks like the Play Arts Kai Variant line is branching into Marvel.

I wonder if they could just repaint Darkseid into Thanos.

As much as I don't want to give a shit, I actually do like the look of Iron Man. It's reminiscent of Sunfire's mask, in a way, and I think it's fairly close to one of the early 2000's armours, just can't recall which one.

Thank you. That was bugging me, and I was about to go grab that hardcover book of all the armours up to 2010.

I feel like it's their spin on the Marvel NOW! armor, but trying to add some red back into it.

 

 

I have no interest in buying any of the variants, or Play Arts in general, but it is interesting to see what they come up with.

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.

 
Well, looking at other recent Marvel movies (and AOE), the general trend for movie lines seems to be that they throw a bunch of stuff out at launch, then have one or two waves that are harder to find, and the whole thing's pretty much over by fall.
 
btw, Marvel announced a new Secret Wars crossover:
http://www.comicbook...rticle&id=56160
...which will include "a year-long program into 2016 with our merchandising partners, digital partners and other partners", specifically mentioning Hasbro.  So hopefully some good toys should come out of that.

That'd be some consolation, since it doesn't sound like many good comics are likely to come out of it.

Would that be maybe late 2015/2016 stuff?

 

edit: Reading is important "...year-long program into 2016...".

So I guess the answer is yes.

 

Out of that promo picture I think I'd want new Cap/any Sam Wilson(if they can do the wings right), new Thor, and a bunch of those Iron Mans.

Picked up the Target Exclusive Ms. Marvel / Cap / Radioactive Man 3-Pack today.

 

Ms. Marvel is an exceptionally nice figure, and the main reason I sprang for the set. Radioactive Man is quite nice as well. Cap is... Cap. It's the Ultimate body mold so... whatever.

 

I now have Ms. Marvel and Hyperion suspended from a line in flight in my den and I am all kinds of happy. :love

I can't wait for the Coulson/Hill/Fury pack though I'm bummed it's TRU so it'll be ten to fifteen more than the Target three-pack.

This thing is weird. "Strip off Iron Man's armor to reveal... more techy bits". Actually, the picture of it stripped down makes him look more like a human head placed on a robot body rather than a person in a suit.

Eye articulation can be a wonderful thing when done correctly. It adds depth and personality to the face, in a way that can really bring a figure alive in your display. But that's only when it makes sense. For Iron Man it makes no sense. Most people are going to have the helmet look, so a lot of people are paying extra for a feature they'll only ever use once, and that's just when they open the box to see what it's like.

Anyone have any of the Corgi statuettes? I've only just discovered them, and the price is really reasonable. Storm looks great, but it looks like they interpreted her costume as blue, when it should be black. Wondering if it's worth buying.
