@  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.

@  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

So, anyone know what the deal is with the Thanos build a figure? I thought that it was coming out with new Marvel Legends wave 2, but now I'm seeing the Avengers age of Ultron line includes one.

Is it the same figure, or something different?

My understanding was that there was going to be an Avengers Infinite line similar to the Ml Guardians line, and Wave 1 would have the Odin/King Thor BaF, while Wave 2 would have the Thanos BaF.

 

I may have misunderstood, but that was the last I heard/knew.

I think the original plan was a non tie-in Avengers Infinite wave with the cap/Spidey legends style figure swaps, due around this time.

Then next summer the Ultron Legends line with the Thanos BAF.

Hasbro's marvel stuff is back to being a distribution garbage fire. I mean, has anyone seen the 4" line beyond wave 1 in stores? May as well be online exclusives.

One of my local Targets has the latest Guardians-filled wave pegwarming as we speak. But that's both the first and only wave from the smaller Infinite line they've had.

Our TRU got the first wave, and appears to have recently got the Guardians wave, but all that is left is a Starlord or 2.

If by any chance anyone is looking for Thor Dark World figures, check Big Lots. May only be a buck or two cheaper or so, but found Loki, Kurse, a Dark Elf, and a couple diff Thors.

I saw the Target 3-pack, but since I really didn't find Ms. Marvel to be a significant improvement over the ToyBiz release, I decided to save myself $50.

Official package shots of the Odin/Thor Marvel Legends series.

 

I prefer having Odin instead of old Thor, so it's a little frustrating that the most important Thor parts come with the character I want the most.

Also, I think Ironfist's headsculpt looks a little off.

 

I hope we see something of that Guardian's five pack soon.

 

edit:

I do really like the wave overall. I don't have any Thors yet, so I don't mind getting this one.

Although, I don't have any connection to Sentry or Machine Man. I may skip the later to save money.

Since I don't actually read Marvel comics, I had not realised that Thor had lost an arm and eye.  Might have to get that new Scarlet Witch as the old ToyBiz one is kinda poopy.

I haven't read the stuff he's from either, but the BAF Thor is a future Thor from after he becomes king of Asgard.

I guess losing an eye is a required part of the job.

Hawkeye and Scarlet Witch are definite purchases.

 

I kinda want Machine Man and Sentry too.

 

At that point I'm only like 3-4 figures away from the BAF...

Thor and Hawkeye are the only ones that don't rock my world. At least Thor's ostensibly got a new look going on; Hawkeye I'd possibly skip if he wasn't central to the BAF.

 

The rest are either new or much improved, so I'm happy to get them.

 

Hopefully, Machine Man is enough of a C-lister that I'll have no trouble selling his King Thor pieces. :)

I just noticed they're still putting generic names on the box for "swap" figures.(Even though I'm pretty sure they're all supposed to ship together.)

"Maids of Might" and "Avenging Allies"

 

Also it looks like they only put the Avengers logos on Thor and Hawkeye.

I'll be more then happy to buy Hawkeye off ya when he hits, for a reasonable price. :D I like the classic look for him and Wanda is becoming a more likeable character in my book, however I'm more interested in the Thanos set for the big prune face himself :)

Almost in spite of myself I seem to be collecting Marvel Legends figures once more. I was picking and choosing, but ever since I got the GotG wave and with my recent acquisition of Storm thanks to Onyx Minor, the Jubilee body was crying to be completed. My Local TRU had Wolverine, Stryfe, and Cyclops, so if I can just snag a Magneto she'll be whole.

Makes me really sorry I passed on a Black Cat oh those months back.

 

And, y'know... all the waves of figures ever since Hasbro did the ML Returns stuff.
