@  unluckiness : (19 June 2018 - 08:33 AM)

I can dig it

@  unluckiness : (19 June 2018 - 08:21 AM)

So Thunderbolts with giant robots?

@  Nevermore : (18 June 2018 - 06:22 PM)

Thundercracker, in particular.

@  Nevermore : (18 June 2018 - 06:21 PM)

Some of the Decepticons start to really enjoy being the good guys. Well, they enjoy the act, at least. They find fulfillment in their assumed personas.

@  Nevermore : (18 June 2018 - 06:20 PM)

Except SHockwave eventually betrays his teammates and teams up with Skynet.

@  Nevermore : (18 June 2018 - 06:20 PM)

Starscream becomes the young, eager Nightscream, and so on.

@  Nevermore : (18 June 2018 - 06:19 PM)

Megatron becomes the noble Megabolt, taking cues from Beast Wars Silverbolt.

@  Nevermore : (18 June 2018 - 06:19 PM)

A Thunderbolts-esque masquerade.

@  Nevermore : (18 June 2018 - 06:19 PM)

In order to do so, the Decepticons pretend to be the good guys and take on different personas.

@  Nevermore : (18 June 2018 - 06:18 PM)

So Megatron decides that hey, the Autobots are stillback on Cybertron, so why not team up with the humans, defeat Skynet, then double-cross the humans?

@  Nevermore : (18 June 2018 - 06:17 PM)

Unfortunately, the Skynet/humans war is already going on, and Skynet is evolving rapidly.

@  Nevermore : (18 June 2018 - 06:17 PM)

The Decepticons discover Earth and want to plunder its resources.

@  Nevermore : (18 June 2018 - 06:17 PM)

It would have a really crazy twist:

@  Nevermore : (18 June 2018 - 06:17 PM)

I've had this crazy idea for a Transformers/Terminator crossover for years.

@  TM2-Megatron : (18 June 2018 - 05:20 PM)

Specifically I'd like to see Skynet's army rise up against him (he did refer to them as an "army of slaves" in Genisys), or even perhaps a peace-minded iteration of Skynet that's existed in a humanoid form long enough to gain some compassion for the human point of view

@  TM2-Megatron : (18 June 2018 - 05:19 PM)

A peaceful resolution would be satisfying for me (it's the only resolution possible in The Matrix series, too), but I think the majority of Terminator fans would walk out think WTF?

@  TM2-Megatron : (18 June 2018 - 05:15 PM)

I liked Clarke as Sarah as well, although I read a lot of complaints online that she looked too young, but I thought she was pretty badass.

@  PlutoniumBoss : (18 June 2018 - 05:11 PM)

I think across these movies, there's a very compelling story about a progressive temporal arms race driven by mutual fear in which Judgement Day keeps getting pushed back, which only gives both sides more time for technological development, and the only true resolution to it is cooperation. But cooperation will never come about because each side fears being wiped out by the other.

@  Paladin : (18 June 2018 - 05:05 PM)

Genisys basically made Sara Connors' entire motivation in stopping judgement day stem from not wanting to sleep with Jai Courtney. and really, can you blame her?

@  PlutoniumBoss : (18 June 2018 - 03:52 PM)

I'll give Genisys another thing, Emilia Clarke made a damn good Linda Hamilton. (As for Jai Courtney looking nothing like Michael Biehn, that just supports my theory that it's not always the same "Kyle Reese" sent back which would explain why John Connor looks different in almost every movie.)

@  Rycochet : (18 June 2018 - 02:54 PM)

I'm not, I'm lost in music.

@  TheMightyMol... : (18 June 2018 - 12:59 PM)

What, again?

@  2018 : (18 June 2018 - 06:33 AM)

It's a time warp. We're trapped in the past.

@  Pennpenn : (18 June 2018 - 05:44 AM)

A rick roll? Really?

@  Waspinator : (17 June 2018 - 11:03 PM)

On the subject of a Mega Man movie

@  Msol : (17 June 2018 - 04:47 PM)

Man I really wish Slash was blue instead of red. Swoop looks off as the only blue one. What a missed opportunity!

@  Otaku : (17 June 2018 - 04:23 PM)

@Bass X0 So, getting back to Mega Man as a movie and smart-aleck answers, wouldn't Astroboy (2009) count? ;) Otherwise, I'm torn; part of me is glad they haven't tried given Hollywood's track record.

@  Paladin : (17 June 2018 - 01:52 PM)

and some TV show...

@  TheMightyMol... : (17 June 2018 - 01:35 PM)

John Connor?! John Connor! JOHN CONNORRRRR!!!!

@  TM2-Megatron : (17 June 2018 - 12:26 PM)

Pretty sure that's what happened to John Connor in that last one

@  MEDdMI : (17 June 2018 - 12:17 PM)

you eat them.... THEY EAY YOU

@  TheMightyMol... : (17 June 2018 - 11:57 AM)

Nanomachines, son!

@  MEDdMI : (17 June 2018 - 11:49 AM)

@Nevermore Rice of fhe Macheens: taking over the world with evil robots the size of rice grains.

@  TM2-Megatron : (17 June 2018 - 11:36 AM)

It eventually goes off the rails, but the bones of an interesting story are there. I enjoyed it more than Rise of the Machines or Salvation

@  Nevermore : (17 June 2018 - 11:26 AM)

There was Genysis, Jujjmend Dae, Salvayshon and Rice of the Macheens, or something.

@  TM2-Megatron : (17 June 2018 - 11:25 AM)

I actually re-watched Genisys the other day, and I'll give it one thing. The beginning of the movie with the pre-Terminator 1 future scenes all looked really fantastic.

@  Xellos : (17 June 2018 - 11:08 AM)

Five, actually, with a sixth in development. Varying degrees of cannonicity between them, though.

@  Pennpenn : (17 June 2018 - 07:59 AM)

There was only two movies, right?

@  Paladin : (17 June 2018 - 07:08 AM)

overall, lousy. there's one great one, one pretty good one and everything else under that brand sucks.

@  wonko the sane? : (17 June 2018 - 06:52 AM)

uuuhhh, what do you think the terminator movies are?

@  Bass X0 : (17 June 2018 - 06:35 AM)

Why has Mega Man never been given a Hollywood movie?

@  Nevermore : (17 June 2018 - 04:32 AM)

Considering at least half our workforce is not of "German" descent, racism should really have no place at our workplace.

@  Nevermore : (17 June 2018 - 04:23 AM)

The one thing that really fascinated me was how he was so adamant that his kids have to learn German that he insisted on only speaking German at home. I'm not saying that this is the one true way to do it, but I did respect him for that.

@  Nevermore : (17 June 2018 - 04:22 AM)

Always cheerful, always friendly. Leaves behind a wife and three kids.

@  Nevermore : (17 June 2018 - 04:21 AM)

I'd have done this either way, but in this case it particularly pissed me off because the deceased coworker was literally the nicest person you could possibly hope to meet.

@  Pennpenn : (17 June 2018 - 04:18 AM)

He deserved it to be suspended. What an imbecile.

@  Nevermore : (17 June 2018 - 04:17 AM)

****ing disgusting racist.

@  Nevermore : (17 June 2018 - 04:16 AM)

Guy was immediately suspended from work.

@  Nevermore : (17 June 2018 - 04:16 AM)

He literally said in my face "they only make a big fuss because that token negro died". I said "dude, what are you saying?" He said "my parent taught me to say what I think." I said "bad enough for you to think like that." and then reported him.

@  Nevermore : (17 June 2018 - 04:15 AM)

So I told this other longtime employee that I was planning to go to the funeral, and he went on a tirade about how "other people had died too", and this was only treated as a big deal because this guy was black.

I'm wondering if one of the Jokers is a TRU exclusive: the one I went to had tons of White Jacket Joker, and has a differently-styled Suicide Squad logo (black with ranbow sparkles around it, compared to the white/silver logo on the lone Deadshot I saw).

I really can't figure these things out. Amazon claims the evening-gown Harley is an Amazon exclusive.

 

So if those are both true, you need two exclusives from two different stores to build Croc's jacketed arms and hands.

Some early SDCC stuff:

 

From Mattel, we've got several new Collect-And-Connect lines featuring characters like Dr. Psycho, Wonder Girl, King Shark, Reaper (from Batman: Year Two), and a plethora of DCTV and TDKR figures.

 

http://news.toyark.c...ckmaster-211968

 

 

And from DC Collectibles, lots more Icons stuff that I can't decide if I care about or not, but much more importantly, Superman: The Animated Series figures.

I'm conflicted, some of those Matty BAFs look nifty, but I know they're prototypes, and the Matty factory craptomizer will do it's work in production.

I love the Expression Pack for Batman. I think I would pretty much always have him displayed with the Shocked/Horrified expression.

 

I really want to like the Bombshells Wonder Woman but when translated to three dimensions she looks positively nutty.

Seriously, those Bombshell figures are horrifying.

 

I'm leaning towards that expression pack though.  Hmmmm.  Batman scandalized at everything?  Yes, I like that idea.

If I see these on pegs I'll likely pick and choose. Dr. Psycho and Wonder Girl for sure, and maybe the DKIII Flash to stand in on my alternate Earths shelf.

Don't know if anyone is really interested in pictures but on a random impulse buy, I got the $10 12 inch simplified figure for Wonder Woman that's the equivalent of Marvel's Titan Heroes. In not expecting it to be some DCU Classics or Marvel Legends level of engineering, it's not a bad toy as a toy. What is hilarious is that it has better than the $10 6 inch BvS Wonder Woman figure that seemed to be aiming slightly higher. Not more, since it's the same number of joints, but larger range. She lost knees in favor of exterior thigh swivels + more range due to the lack of a skirt. Just felt like they made smarter choices.

It also got me officially curious about Batman Unlimited but that's another discussion since I need to see if we have existing threads for it.

So what's this about a Walmart exclusive $100 Batcave?

I'll try to remember to take pictures next time I go (unless you found images elsewhere).

So, I dunno if it's been discussed before, but there's this leaked image of an alleged Lego Batman Movie minifigures blindbag line, including such classic characters as Surf's Up Batman, Clock King, Red Hood, Chef Joker (?), and, of all characters, Orca.

 

1476804202812.png

 

Interesting as this is on its own, it's making me wonder if the legal position on doing Lego Batman Movie blindbags is different to Lego DC or Marvel blindbags on the whole; if it's true that they can't do superhero blindbags because they're too close to being action figures, this being possible is pretty interesting.

I picked up BTAS Clayface, despite those incredibly ugly promotional photos that they used.

Surprisingly, he doesn't look bad in person.  I think that the head-sculp, while nice, isn't exactly dead-on to the animation model, but the colour and textures of the body work well enough to make him probably my favourite BTAS villain figure to date.

 

I'm not sure what they were going with the axe arm attachment, though.  The way that they oriented the blade with the curvature of the forearm, Clayface can pretty much only whack himself with the bladed edge.  Ironically, I think I'm just going to bin the pieces and display him with both actual arms.

Oof, that sounds like a Matty thing.  Hope DC Direct doesn't pick up more of their bad habits.

 

And speaking of lousy articulation!  The nuDoomsday wave all hit sub-$15 on amazon, and I ended up buying them all, despite only wanting the MOTUC-buck guys, like Snarly Armorbats here (it's fun, I have to admit).
