I'd rather have Armada Sideswipe than Alternator Sideswipe.

@  Tm_Silverclaw : (24 June 2017 - 09:50 AM)

What he's really doing is buying all the sideswipe, so that after the apocolypse.. He'll have an army to take ove the world!

@  unluckiness : (24 June 2017 - 09:00 AM)

We could be taking this the wrong way. What if this person means to sacrifice their own money to prevent Armada Sideswipes from falling into the hands of those who don't know better?

@  Rycochet : (24 June 2017 - 06:26 AM)

People say silly things online all the time, usually followed by a smilie or a wink. Take away the context and they go from being a joke to absurd hyperbole.

@  TheMightyMol... : (24 June 2017 - 06:07 AM)

But that would miss the entire point of hyperbole.

@  Pennpenn : (24 June 2017 - 06:03 AM)

Well that's a stupid attitude from someone who would waste a lot of money. I mean, they should just... not buy movie toys?

@  Bass X0 : (24 June 2017 - 04:52 AM)

Most insane thing I read of the day: "I would rather buy 100 Armada Sideswipes and PRiD Airachnids than buy any Bayformers crap"

@  Nevermore : (23 June 2017 - 06:10 PM)

His dialogue is full of allusions to his infamous lookalike, though sometimes as subversions. Oh, and sometimes he sings Karaoke. Check his rendition of "My Way", it's on Youtube.

@  Nevermore : (23 June 2017 - 06:09 PM)

The entire idea behind the character is that he looks and talks like Hitler, but is actually a good guy. Maybe with a dickish attitude, but he's not the villain.

@  Nevermore : (23 June 2017 - 06:08 PM)

Alfons Hatler is a supporting character from a German Edgar Wallace parody movie and its sequel.

@  Nevermore : (23 June 2017 - 06:07 PM)

I'd like to remind everyone that Alfons Hatler exists, which is all sorts of awesome.

@  wonko the sane? : (23 June 2017 - 05:41 PM)

@  Sean Whitmore : (23 June 2017 - 03:31 PM)

Epilogue is the worst thing to happen to mankind. And I'm including, like, all the wars and stuff.

@  Evac : (23 June 2017 - 02:11 PM)

... Did Linkara cover that one?

@  Paladin : (23 June 2017 - 01:50 PM)

the comics where Barbara quit being Batgirl after she was beaten into a miscarriage.

@  Boomhauer : (23 June 2017 - 01:20 PM)

His choice to be Batman had more punch when he was a completely normal guy met with the same dillema instead of the DNA garbage that muddies the message for no other reason than to give Old Bruce another ass-kiss before the show is over. It's a boring episode whose entire concept is repeating things already known and spark Squawkbox arguments.

@  The Predaking : (23 June 2017 - 01:11 PM)

But he still chose to be batman. Not only did he chose to be batman, he did it better.

@  Tm_Silverclaw : (23 June 2017 - 12:46 PM)

I have to agree.. Part of the problem with Epilogue is it takes away from "Terry CHOSE to be batman" and changed it a bit to "Terry was designed to be batman."

@  NotVeryKnightly : (23 June 2017 - 12:13 PM)

Do you mean the DCAU continuity comics or Future's End?

@  Paladin : (23 June 2017 - 11:36 AM)

can we all at least agree it's a better ending for Batman Beyond than the comics?

@  wonko the sane? : (23 June 2017 - 10:52 AM)

There was no evidence of it to support it in the show, and generally using someone to MAKE a batman is a jerkish thing to do.

@  Benbot : (23 June 2017 - 10:37 AM)

why does it matter?

@  Tm_Silverclaw : (23 June 2017 - 10:25 AM)

I think the problem with Epilogue was making Terry effectivly Batman's son.

@  Benbot : (23 June 2017 - 10:24 AM)

what's your problem with it?

@  The Predaking : (23 June 2017 - 10:02 AM)

Epilogue give a great end to Batman Beyond and even has a Mask of the Phantasm character

@  MrBlud : (23 June 2017 - 09:55 AM)

I don't post in the Shoutbox often, but when I do, it's to confirm "Epilogue" is garbage.

@  Paladin : (23 June 2017 - 08:43 AM)

even "Epilogue" ? (braces for that argument again)

Yeah, miles is only used when accuracy doesn't actually matter, or we're dealing with americans.

@  Nevermore : (23 June 2017 - 03:55 AM)

We even use "miles" in similar contexts in German even though we use kilometers for actual measurements.

@  The Doctor Who : (23 June 2017 - 02:40 AM)

Makes sense, really. Colloquialisms exist in their own weird little universe where terminology can persist after it's no longer relevant otherwise.

@  abates : (23 June 2017 - 01:17 AM)

We also measure car milage in kilometres but still call it milage.

@  Bass X0 : (22 June 2017 - 05:47 PM)

No. We still say miles. Kilometers is only really used for actual specific distances whereas miles being used in a common phrase is still miles.

@  SHIELD Agent 47 : (22 June 2017 - 04:59 PM)

People from outside the U.S.: as we are all English-proficient here, do you ever use the phrase "I saw it coming from miles away.", or do you say "kilometers" instead?

@  Paladin : (22 June 2017 - 08:22 AM)

and if you want to support your theaters, buy more concessions. because they get SHIT from the ticket sales...

@  Hg Dragon : (22 June 2017 - 08:15 AM)

So, we charged an extra $1 per. F'em

@  Hg Dragon : (22 June 2017 - 08:13 AM)

First, they threatened to stop sending us digital because we weren't upcharging for it (back when we were still "mixed" format). Then they threatened to stop sendingus 3D because we didn't upcharge for those either initially.

@  Hg Dragon : (22 June 2017 - 08:12 AM)

Can't blame the theater totally for those ticket prices. The studios have a say in them as well.

@  Noideaforaname : (22 June 2017 - 12:00 AM)

Charge 'em for the lice! Extra for the mice! Two percent for looking in the mirror twice!

@  TM2-Megatron : (21 June 2017 - 11:45 PM)

Even here in Canada where price gouging is commonplace, IMAX 3-D is still $19.50

@  TM2-Megatron : (21 June 2017 - 11:44 PM)

$27 a ticket? That's ludicrous

@  Sean Whitmore : (21 June 2017 - 11:40 PM)

I gave up on IMAX this year. I was just about able to put up with $20 per ticket, but by the time the new Kong came out, my theater started charging $27 per. They must be outside their damn minds.

@  unitremover : (21 June 2017 - 10:50 PM)

I paid for a ticket to a 2D showing but they showed it in 3D anyways for some reason. I think me taking an Ibuprofen before I went for other reasons is the only reason I didn't walk out with a massive headache.

@  TM2-Megatron : (21 June 2017 - 10:38 PM)

One thing I'll give Bay and/or the promoters of this film... I like how they've advertised on the poster that this was actually shot with real, IMAX 3-D cameras. I wish the marketing of other films exhibited a similar interest in the quality of the equipment used. Hell, for some films, being visually interesting is about all they have going for them

A mullet? Really?

Typically, the hair from the 80s cartoon is supposed to be stupider.

And wasn't she the medic of the ThunderCats? Now she's a angsty gladiator?

While I hated those Wildstorm comics (save the Origins mini), I thought the name "Doberlord" was hilariously awesome. So I kinda would like it if they carried that over, yearh.

I was trying to remember earlier today if she had some kind of job. Really, after a couple years stranded on Third Earth, other lady on the team was probably role that everyone appreciated.

Previews are up on Thundercats.org as well as design sheets of Pumyra, Dobo, and some of the dog gladiators. Great designs, btw. Love how much of their armor is made of discarded technology they no longer know how to use.

Was the "mace for head" robot guy a hommage from the old show, btw?

Umm, I fail to see any significant difference in her hairstyle compared to the old version.

And the whole hatred against Lion-O (and maybe the whole royal family?) just makes her more interesting. Wonder what caused that...

Dan Norton has uploaded tons and tons of designs, sketches, and even early concept art of characters and vehicles from the show, it's worth checking out - even a lot of minor characters are there like the Drifter, the Duelist, Khamai, Shen... Oh, and guide on how the Berbils transform!

Also, LIon-O's mom was supposed to be called Leona, but much like with Chrysalis in MLP FiM, it was never used in the show.

My thoughts are kinda random on this episode. I'm not sure I could make a cohesive review on it. So I think I'll just leave you all some some of these tid bits.

Cheetara: She must have survived the fall of Thundera.
Me: Now, now! Let's not jump to conclusions. It's entirely possible she died.

The cats don't seem to like the gladitorial arena...because...you know...it's so barbaric...unlike that ringing the bell game they had in Thundera.

And darn it all, Pumyra seems to have gotten my furry fetish in an uproar again.....but you'll never hear me say that out loud <_<

I absolutely must go through the entire season and count how many times Wilhelm's bought it.

I'm not really sure I care for the resolution. The build up was great and all, but it seems Pumyra and Dobo had a change of heart just a bit too easily.

Eh, it's a slight improvement, as it looks like hair, instead of some sort of weird dead animal on her head. Plus, it doesn't look like she has a bad make up job, but it looks like its part of her colorations.

Don't get me wrong, I don't love the look, but it is a decent attempt to update the horrible look she originally had.

My question is when exactly Panthro was a slave of the Dogs? It must've been some adventure he was one before he adn Grune went on their world tour. I liked how they did the flashback with lots of vague shapes; they were cutting their enemies up with axes while working around the gore. Nice bit of direction to meet BS&P.


Or not. Panthro & Grune were apparently gone for a long time. After Panthro & Grune parted company, he could have been forced into slavery. Grune & Mumra didn't immediately attack Thundera, because Mumra had to build his army of lizard people.

Or at least that a guess where you could fit this in.

I hate to say it, but I know how you feel...

I like that she's got a good deal of characterization. Bitter, a fighter, and still hopeful, as given by the ending. I just hope we keep her (and any other rescued slaves) on as part of the full team. I mean, Thundertank didn't just quintuple in size to be cool after all.

I have to admit though, as much as I get bored with the kittens antics, the Cleptovoyancy idea is something I have GOT to use in D&D.
