Blugh, the english dub of BGC is atrocious.

I might need to update my software, or they face regional limitations, cause I found no evidence of either.

Spiffy! The english dub of Bubblegum Crisis on Tubi. It's gotten so hard to find these oldies on modern streaming services.

@  ▲ndrusi : (19 February 2020 - 02:34 PM)

Or do Japan's cultural values vary depending on exactly who you're trying to shut down?

@  ▲ndrusi : (19 February 2020 - 02:33 PM)

Could it be that, perhaps, these different cultural values might lead to a different approach seeming appropriate?

@  ▲ndrusi : (19 February 2020 - 02:32 PM)

Hm. Back when we were arguing about the Legends comic, I seem to recall being repeatedly told that Japan had different cultural values than the US (and therefore anyone who had a problem with anything at all was wrong to voice that opinion ever).

@  fourteenwings : (19 February 2020 - 07:23 AM)

Plus, as much as I hate to admit it, every single anime character is built to suit the audience's tastes so they buy more merch/do other things that allow $$$ to flow in the production committees direction, so the authenticity is certainly not for representation's sake.

@  fourteenwings : (19 February 2020 - 07:18 AM)

Both those anime air at midnight and are aimed at a very specific audience in a whole other media landscape. Major projects have press releases about almost everything, and there are groups just waiting to pat anybody on the back for doing what they want (GLAAD, HRC, etc)

@  B-Fox : (19 February 2020 - 03:16 AM)

It's funny that a friggin' anime about zombie idols and an anime about a school of anthropomorphic animals can have really positive trans characters WITHOUT a press release about their inclusion in the series prior to the episodes airing or having the creators announcing it on social media and patting themselves on the back for doing a thing.

vegan meat must taste delicious. they're grass-fed and regularly exercised....

@  wonko the sane? : (18 February 2020 - 06:57 PM)

Vegans are better than kids if you don't talk to them. They'll keep the lawn trimmed anyway.

@  TheMightyMol... : (18 February 2020 - 06:02 PM)

Do you want vegans? Because that's how you get vegans.

@  CORVUS : (18 February 2020 - 04:33 PM)

Hook up your sprinkler system to a canister of healthy organic carrot-juice. The kids won't be able to get off your lawn fast enough.

@  TheMightyMol... : (18 February 2020 - 03:59 PM)

Just use the hose.

@  wonko the sane? : (18 February 2020 - 03:52 PM)

Ask bing. It'll be a FAR more effective answer.

@  TrnsfrmGod : (18 February 2020 - 03:26 PM)

Google, how do I get those durned kids off my lawn?

Modern problems require modern solutions.

@  NotVeryKnightly : (16 February 2020 - 05:21 PM)

Japan seems to have a tradition of murder things where cellphones facilitate the killing instead. Like King's Game and Doubt.

@  TheMightyMol... : (16 February 2020 - 05:17 PM)

Or there's just conveniently no reception, or all of their phones are dead at the same time. Or they're just stupid and forget about them.

@  Patch : (16 February 2020 - 04:41 PM)

Now the slasher villain has to go and knock over the nearest cell tower before butchering horny teenagers.

@  TheMightyMol... : (16 February 2020 - 03:54 PM)

Think of all the horror and mystery movies that involve the bad guys cutting the phone line. Now think about how many people don't even have a land line to cut anymore.

@  Telly : (16 February 2020 - 03:47 PM)

its like that scene in commando. the bad guy has to get to a phone to call the big bad to tell him arnold isnt on the plane. that wouldnt happen today

@  Rycochet : (16 February 2020 - 03:18 PM)

Watching early episodes of the x-files will make you feel super old once you start to notice the techology they use, and the technology they lack.

@  TheMightyMol... : (14 February 2020 - 02:49 PM)

Makes you feel old, don't it?

@  Maximus Ambus : (14 February 2020 - 02:38 PM)

While browsing Youtube vids I read these comments: 'The X Files is such an underrated show' and another 'Brent Spiner is a underrated actor' I want to punch something.

Found the strangest thing today.

I stopped at a 5 Below that just opened up last November.  This is a new store and we've never had this store around here before.

 

Looking in the toys, I see the usual suspects: Rogue One Titans, Solo 3.75 figures, some Force Link Kylo Ren starter kits....but I found about a case of Star Wars Rebels Mission Series 2 packs.

Yes, the stuff that hit FIVE YEARS ago.  Saw Kanan/Cadet Ezra, Luke Stormtrooper/Leia, and a couple of Hera and Stormtrooper Commanders.  Got a Hero set and the Luke/Leia set for $5 each.  Still baffling WHERE they managed to dig up stuff this old.  Stuff that wasn't nearly as heavily ordered as any given Force Awakens product.

Well, it's a little odd that this was the next vehicle to suddenly show up from the Mandalorian (and not like.. the Razor Crest), but still pretty cool though pricey. It's not like they just gave a paint wash to the Rebels transport - it's clearly an all-new sculpt.

The fact it's a new sculpt with that premium deco is why it's $70.  I imagine a Razor Crest would be $150+, which is probably why Hasbro hasn't done anything with that (yet?).

 

I have to say I'm surprised Hasbro went and made a new one over simply slapping a premium deco on the old Rebels one.  Even with a new deco, I would think it would be significantly cheaper.

 

That said, at least when/if Hasbro does new Speeder Bikes, we should be getting nice new ones  (I would totally pay $60 for two speeder bikes with scouts and IG-11)

Yeah - I hope we get a Razor Crest that's at least the size of the vintage Slave I, but ideally the size of the Amazon Exclusive, Big S1.

I really love that the Speeder Bikes on the Mandalorian were white rather than brown.  Says to me that the ones on Mando were the default Imperial versions while the versions on Endor were specifically colored for the Forest Moon.

I have to say, I'm a bit irked at all the people on other sites harking about how "hard" it will be to get enough Stormtroopers for this thing.  Y'know, not as if Entertainment Earth has MULTIPLE VERSIONS available for preorder RIGHT NOW  :rolleyes

 

If guys want 20 to fill out the transport, they can go ahead and order them right now and get them before the transport releases.

Yeah - that's kind of dumb. The Remnant Trooper is available for pre-order (which is what the ITT shows on its packaging), and there's also a repack VC clean ST coming out next month. There will be no shortage of Troopers to choose from.

 

But where would fandoms be without manufactured hand-wringing.

I think that might be the one thing to make a whole segment of the fandom's heads explode. :D

 

Remember when they included 20 Battle Droids with the MTT whose only articulation was folding in half?

Yeah!  Weren't they considerate so fans didn't have to hunt down 20 Battledroids to fill out the vehicle?  And that was BEFORE we could order 20 figures easily online without extreme mark up! :D
