@  -Wildstrike- : (25 May 2020 - 03:39 PM)

I'll agree with you on that.

@  -Wildstrike- : (25 May 2020 - 03:39 PM)

*Figured -_-

@  -Wildstrike- : (25 May 2020 - 03:39 PM)

I fugured

@  Steevy Maximus : (25 May 2020 - 01:37 PM)

I'm actually sad Cyberverse won't get another season. 2 and 3 (of what I've seen) have REALLY nailed it in being fun little actions shows, like the Sunbow series.

@  Rycochet : (25 May 2020 - 01:00 PM)

Yes.

@  Maximus Ambus : (25 May 2020 - 12:52 PM)

I'm waiting for Animated season 4. Am I insane?

@  wonko the sane? : (25 May 2020 - 11:22 AM)

I'm waiting for the next season to show up on netflix.

@  Sabrblade : (25 May 2020 - 10:59 AM)

Many of us have already watched the rest of the Cyberverse episodes since the whole third season aired in the UK last September.

@  -Wildstrike- : (25 May 2020 - 10:18 AM)

*9th

@  -Wildstrike- : (25 May 2020 - 10:17 AM)

I just saw the 8th episode... omg

@  Bass X0 : (25 May 2020 - 01:28 AM)

Already seen it online.

@  -Wildstrike- : (24 May 2020 - 09:42 PM)

Who's excited for tomorrow? The only thing that makes Monday worth it is the Cyberverse episodes .-.

@  wonko the sane? : (24 May 2020 - 12:30 PM)

Welcome. I just came into that trick myself recently, so happy to share.

@  Nevermore : (24 May 2020 - 12:05 PM)

Thanks, wonko the sane? for the tip with the cloning. That helped a lot!

@  -Wildstrike- : (24 May 2020 - 12:02 PM)

Heheh.... yes... I don't think a sniper would be very good at making a vaccine... 0.0

@  Nevermore : (24 May 2020 - 11:48 AM)

All right! Cloning my old HHD to an SSD and then swapping out the drive was successful, it would appear. Finally.

@  Bass X0 : (24 May 2020 - 11:30 AM)

Scientist Perceptor is. Sniper Perceptor less so.

@  -Wildstrike- : (24 May 2020 - 10:51 AM)

Perceptor would be more responsible.

@  -Wildstrike- : (24 May 2020 - 10:48 AM)

Oof x~x

@  TheMightyMol... : (24 May 2020 - 10:45 AM)

He'd cure the virus, but he'd probably commit at least two crimes against nature and weaponize a third in the process.

@  -Wildstrike- : (24 May 2020 - 09:39 AM)

'Horrible consequences' would most likely happen with Brainstorm...

@  -Wildstrike- : (24 May 2020 - 08:16 AM)

Totally. And Percy's not even human. XD

@  TheMightyMol... : (24 May 2020 - 06:50 AM)

Can't do much worse than our current government, I say go for it.

@  Sabrblade : (23 May 2020 - 10:13 PM)

Little do we realize that the Perceptor in question is the Mini-Con combiner. :p

@  -Wildstrike- : (23 May 2020 - 10:11 PM)

He would!!!

@  -Wildstrike- : (23 May 2020 - 10:11 PM)

Horrible consequences? I... Doubt that would happen.

@  wonko the sane? : (23 May 2020 - 09:55 PM)

Even if he would come up with the answer by tomorrow.

@  wonko the sane? : (23 May 2020 - 09:54 PM)

I'd rather not deal with the horrible but unintended consequences of that.

@  -Wildstrike- : (23 May 2020 - 09:52 PM)

Lets let Perceptor make a vaccine for COVID-19. Who agrees with me :)

@  -Wildstrike- : (23 May 2020 - 08:43 PM)

I'll take your word for it. =D

@  TM2-Megatron : (23 May 2020 - 08:42 PM)

Although the TV edits of Robocop do contain some hilarity

@  TM2-Megatron : (23 May 2020 - 08:41 PM)

I can't think of any instance where sanitizing a film is a good thing.

@  -Wildstrike- : (23 May 2020 - 06:42 PM)

.... and thats a good thing? :doh

@  Steevy Maximus : (23 May 2020 - 06:39 PM)

I'm watching Predator on Starz! That means it has all the language and gore uncensored!

@  Sabrblade : (23 May 2020 - 04:23 PM)

*grabs popcorn*

@  -Wildstrike- : (23 May 2020 - 12:49 PM)

*watching everyone argue* O^O

@  fourteenwings : (23 May 2020 - 10:22 AM)

By that logic we might as well just get rid of the Shoutbox wholesale! I'd rather have like 3 or 4 things stuck for a week or so than one person dominating the whole thing (no offense Nevermore).

@  PlutoniumBoss : (23 May 2020 - 03:30 AM)

I would argue that "full of something one doesn't read" and "devoid of reading material" are functionally identical at the end-user level. :D

@  NotVeryKnightly : (22 May 2020 - 07:58 PM)

If it emptied, it would become empty.

@  PlutoniumBoss : (22 May 2020 - 07:53 PM)

It would be the same effect as if the shoutbox simply emptied once or twice a week.

@  NotVeryKnightly : (22 May 2020 - 07:27 PM)

I don't see how having walls of the same guy on top whenever I go to any page on this site is "refreshing".

@  PlutoniumBoss : (22 May 2020 - 06:10 PM)

I don't know, I find the occasional flushing of the box to be refreshing.

@  Telly : (22 May 2020 - 04:20 PM)

but its gets annoying seeing a wall of text from him that takes up most of the shoutbox

@  PlutoniumBoss : (22 May 2020 - 03:53 PM)

Eh, that's just Nevermore.

@  fourteenwings : (22 May 2020 - 12:11 AM)

@Nevermore: Good rule of thumb is if you feel like you need not just multiple statements but also multiple shouts to make a point, best just make a thread.

@  NotVeryKnightly : (21 May 2020 - 05:36 PM)

Dude, do you just, not know when to stop?

@  Nevermore : (21 May 2020 - 03:35 PM)

Instead of "I have only ten hours to get all my stuff from place A to place B", it's more like "I temporarily stored 90% of my stuff in easily accessible place C in my spare time, so now I have ten hours to get the remaining 10% of my stuff over to the new place before permanently saying goodbye to the old place".

@  NotVeryKnightly : (21 May 2020 - 03:33 PM)

At these point you two are just repeating what you already said.

@  Nevermore : (21 May 2020 - 03:32 PM)

Again using my "moving apartments" analogy. If you can store the stuff you don't immediately need for everyday life somewhere else, it reduces the critical time of permanently switching your primary base of residence over to the new place because there's less stuff to move when the time comes.

@  Nevermore : (21 May 2020 - 03:30 PM)

Well, my main point is that it will speed up the system migration so I have A) less system downtime because there are fewer files to transfer before the new system can be up and running and B) it reduces the risk of something going wrong during the system migration.

So if the Snake Eyes movie takes place in Japan, and if they say Snake Eyes was born in Japan, then this Snake Eyes might have it worse then any of the other versions of Snake Eyes, because Henry Golding is half English, so they could say he's half Japanese and half American if they wanted too, and being half-Japanese and half non-Japanese is seen as a bad thing by some Japanese people.

So....just an update.  The film seems like it's happening.  Filming slated to start next month, and has some solid production crew in place.  Release date is next October, so there's a decent chance we'll be hearing about new GI Joe initiatives at Toy Fair.

 

Still nothing on the Micronauts front, though I think D&D is still slated for summer 2021

Here is hoping the film is good. And that the action figures are terrific. Hopefully something for the 1/18, 3.75-4inch market too, and that they sell them for overseas markets.

"Skydive Into The Veiled Prophet Fair" certainly sounds like a Joe episode, Riker Snake Eyes be damned.


Fall of Cybertron will blow your mind. That is all.

Saw y'all snarking about Hisstank, so I expect I'm going to like it here.  :)

 

Anyway, I picked up the new GI Joe comic, and I'm really digging a lot of the storytelling choices.

So as someone that's not really a Joe fan, but decided on a whim to pick this up since its apparently a reboot like Transformers got and just in-case that somewhere down the line IDW tries to do the whole 'shared universe' thing. And while I like it, I am wondering if this isn't so much a reboot as just a jumping on point since there is no real info provided here back the War or anything as It feels like this could be a Vol.2. I get just jumping into the action, but feels like there should have been some kinda intro page. Sure there is a little paragraph, but a couple more could have helped imo. I'll likely give this at least til the conclusion of its first storyline to full grasp me, as I do like its kinda doing what Renegades did, sorta. Which was the last time something from the franchise grabbed me.

It's an interesting setup.

 

Making the Joes very similar to the original idea of the Autobots (civilian hardware) is definitely a change.

 As a newer Joe fan but long term TF fan I am all for having spite at dumb fans on Hisstank throwing a hissy fit (lol) over a gay male protagonist.  As a Bi fan myself i'm all for any kid of LGBT representation, and for being spiteful at intolerant people.

 

(I'm new to the forum and Allspark.com so I have no idea how to make spoilers on this so I'll give a vague spoiler free review. ) It's a new continuity and jumping off point for a Joe vs Cobra story in which Cobra has won and GI Joe has lost as it's starting premise.  I do agree that a synopsis might have been helpful, or even a filling in on of the world of GI Joe, as that would be helpful for new readers.  But there is def a sense of some suspense being built up with how little has been revealed yet as to how this Cobra ran world has come to be.  Even in the short read of issue one it is clearly a highly ambitious work in terms of storytelling, character choice, art design, and action.  Also quite ambitious for some very spoilery reasons that have already talked about that I was ultra shocked by.  I think it's worth it for regular hasbro fans of any kind who never got into gi joe to give it a look to see if they like it.   (or anyone who wants to give it a look for that matter)

I think the sparse detail is a deliberate choice. IIRC, the writer said he's not going to do an exposition dump about Cobra's rise to power, but throw some references in throughout the series. But yeah, I can see where that might strain the suspension of disbelief in a setting that's supposed to reflect - more or less - the current world.

spoiler  and /spoiler in both in brackets [ ].

 

I think maybe even an Issue 0 would be good. I fully expect we'll get some backstory as things go on, but right now it feels borderline on 'too ambitious' with no real set up. Like I don't want all the answers, but a bit more stage setting I think is needed.
