I'm surprised there's not been a Nemesis Primal given all the Nemesis Primes.

I'm pretty sure Drift 2 was Empire of Stone.

I thought people said Prime Wheeljack was Drift 2.

@  Maximus Ambus : (22 November 2020 - 03:51 PM)

Windblade was Drift.2.

@  TheMightyMol... : (22 November 2020 - 02:44 PM)

Drift with boobs.

@  Rycochet : (22 November 2020 - 11:50 AM)

I can't imagine a live action movie version of Windblade being all that different from Drift. Not my thing, but not the worst thing I've ever seen.

@  Bass X0 : (22 November 2020 - 09:54 AM)

The thought of Movie aesthetic Windblade makes me feel sick.

@  NotVeryKnightly : (22 November 2020 - 08:47 AM)

Though, the fact that Japanese people would pay for Windblade toys in the $30-40 range doesn't mean they'd pay however much MPs are going for now.

@  NotVeryKnightly : (22 November 2020 - 08:44 AM)

Back when I made a habit of checking Mandarake for pre-owned TFs, Windblade's toys went for surprisingly high prices. By which I mean not lower than the original price.

@  Maximus Ambus : (22 November 2020 - 08:15 AM)

If she's in the next movie you might get her.

@  unluckiness : (22 November 2020 - 07:58 AM)

Japan didn't get most of the IDW comics and are the target market for MP. They basically know windblade from a few crappy pack-in comics and a show that wasn't particularly popular there. Unless they start cranking out Cyberverse MPs, it's not very likely.

@  TheMightyMol... : (22 November 2020 - 04:24 AM)

Again, depends if she's popular enough in Japan to warrant it. Our view of which characters are popular is not the same as Takara's.

@  Bass X0 : (22 November 2020 - 01:53 AM)

So characters like Windblade then.

@  TheMightyMol... : (21 November 2020 - 07:19 PM)

They're complicated and expensive to design. By necessity, they're gonna be restricted to well-known characters who are more likely to sell.

@  Bass X0 : (21 November 2020 - 07:05 PM)

I don’t think Masterpiece toys should be restricted to only show characters.

@  Rycochet : (21 November 2020 - 03:09 PM)

If she wasn't in the Sunbow cartoon, Live Action movie or Beast Wars and can't be repainted from someone else, she's not getting an MP.

@  wonko the sane? : (21 November 2020 - 12:44 PM)

They'll make their money back if they include the metal thong...

@  TheMightyMol... : (21 November 2020 - 12:29 PM)

Is she popular enough in Japan that Takara would even try?

@  Paladin : (21 November 2020 - 11:23 AM)

depends. will that one also have a giant metal thong?

@  Bass X0 : (21 November 2020 - 11:10 AM)

@  TM2-Megatron : (14 November 2020 - 11:25 PM)

That's irritating, but it sounds par for the course with new hardware release. Within a year, there'll probably be some good stuff out there that does it all.

@  Tm_Silverclaw : (14 November 2020 - 11:23 PM)

4K/HDR switches are.. iffy.. Because most of them can't do 4K and HDR at the same time.. Or can't do 120hz... and all sorts of things the new TVs have built in, and the new consoles use...

@  TM2-Megatron : (14 November 2020 - 11:18 PM)

Maybe now that the PS5's made the whole 4K thing a little more mainstream, the hardware will start becoming more common. I know that's one of the hopes the physical media community has for the 100GB discs the PS5 is going to be using. Prior to this, they were very expensive tor replicate compared to a regular blu-ray and not used very often

@  TM2-Megatron : (14 November 2020 - 11:17 PM)

Up to now, there really haven't been a whole lot of 4K disc players to choose from... Samsung stopped making them altogether when they couldn't compete with the others, so your main choices are a few models of Panasonic or Sony

@  TM2-Megatron : (14 November 2020 - 11:14 PM)

Is there no such thing as a 4K/HDR switch yet?

@  Tm_Silverclaw : (14 November 2020 - 10:10 PM)

Which is fine.. But that still doesn't explain why they arn't putting out up to date HDMI switch boxes to get.. more money.

@  TM2-Megatron : (14 November 2020 - 09:59 PM)

My only TV with a respectable number of ports is my OLED 4K/3D, which has 4 HDMI, 2 USB 2.0s, 1 USB 3.0 and some weird proprietary thing that acts as both component and composite, depending on what you need. But it retailed for $10k when it first came out (I bought it 14 months later for less than half that). THey're going to get as many corners on less expensive sets as they can, which usually means only providing 2 HDMIs.

@  TM2-Megatron : (14 November 2020 - 09:55 PM)

I mean, there are some decent ones for under a grand. But yeah, I imagine that's what they're thinking. Most people I know, unless they're film or A/V aficionados, all they've got hooked up to their TV is a digital cable receiver and perhaps a game console and dated DVD player

@  Tm_Silverclaw : (14 November 2020 - 09:45 PM)

TM2-Megatron... If that is their assumptions.. That is one of the stupidest way to think.. Especially since Multichannel receivers way to fricken expensive for that. 3000 is way to expensive.

@  TM2-Megatron : (14 November 2020 - 09:11 PM)

They probably assume the people who actually need a lot of ports are the type of consumers who'd have a decently high-end Multichannel receiver. Whereas those people who don't need many connections probably don't even have a blu-ray player or anything. Maybe just a gaming console for the kids and an old DVD player.

@  wonko the sane? : (14 November 2020 - 04:04 PM)

I saw that movie. I don't want jim carrey in my head.

@  Maximus Ambus : (14 November 2020 - 03:43 PM)

Soon beam TV programs into brains with a neural transciever anyway.

@  wonko the sane? : (14 November 2020 - 03:28 PM)

I'm surprised they keep reducing the number of ports on TV's.

@  Tm_Silverclaw : (14 November 2020 - 02:52 PM)

Ahh.. No.. I mean an HDMI 2.1 switcher box to give you more imputs on a TV. :D Those should have been released in preparation of the XSX and PS5 considering their touting 2.1 features. :D

Echoing the love for Brad Jones and Spoony. Nostalgia Critic is hit or miss, but mostly I enjoy Doug's stuff. Also a fan of Lupa.

Nash I watch for his Doctor Who reviews and Sage I tune in for Anime Abandon. I'll check out Nostalgia Chick or Phelous if I'm bored. As a aside, Phelous has gotten extremely better in his delivery and overall energy lately.

Linkara I'm a on again, off again watcher. I generally like his stuff, but the story bits are way too heavy handed (He's not as good an actor as he thinks he is). I was glad when Spoony started putting those at the end of the videos.

But mainly it's Brad and Spoony. They're the two I've actually gone back and rewatched reviews of because they're so entertaining (Though I really could do without the faux Sitcom set up on 80s Dan. Makes it a chore to sit through).

Matter of fact, I think I'll go and re-watch some Let's Play SWAT 4.

Dude, just because folks have remarked that they prefer Reviewer X over Reviewer Y, doesn't somehow invalidate your own opinion or reason for this topic. If you find the Nostalgia Critic the best out of the batch, then there's no shame in that.

Anyway, I like Linkara's Power Rangers stuff. Some of his comic reviews are okay, but I could do without the secondary plot... and my wife likes them even less.

Angry Joe is alright, and I like Vangelus, but I mostly watch Nostalgia Critic and Nostalgia Chick. I like them, except when they get their facts wrong...

Case in point: saying Mario and Luigi are father and son in the Mario movie. icon-waspy.gif Which wouldn't be a problem in itself, except it seems to spread, as people apparently take what he says as gospel.

Hah, I rewatched Spoony's Let's Play of SWAT 4 recently too. Hilarity.

Another big rewatch in Spoony's stuff are the two Insano reviews, Ferris Bueller's Day Off and The Dungeonmaster.

I watch Nostalgia Critic and Linkara every week. I also watch the Nostalgia Chick when she updates.

I just enjoy the reviews even of those movies and comics I've never heard of before or already know I don't like. Don't care much for the sub-plots though.



Brute Force is a crazy comic though. Hard to believe Marvel axed Transformers G1 due to low sales then had Furman write this crap. They wanted some toy company to approach them to make toys of Brute Force? Come on Marvel, thats dumb. I actually didn't know it was Furman who wrote Brute Force in the review of the first issue - but I recognised a Furmanism.

Just because you can't win doesn't mean you stop working.

Lord Vice was probably the last "good" story Linkara did. MissingNo was just weird and the latest one with Mechakara was just not well designed at all. Especially since he basically broke narrative flow to do his review (Hence why such things work better at the end of a review).

The Critic's the only one I make a point of watching every week - I used to be a regular Linkara viewer, but I grew increasingly tired of his intrusive, laughably faux-dramatic story nonsense - little more than an excuse to play Power Rangers dress-up with his she-beast girlfriend, near as I can tell. I'll echo whoever said earlier he's not as good an actor - physical or voice - as he seems to think he is (because why keep doing it otherwise?) And his reviews in the last few months have become progressively more and more nitpicking, harping on worthless nerd-based criticisms (Star Trek, Silent Hill) instead of really addressing the stupidity or plotting flaws of the stories. "Marville" is the only one I've watched since Secret Origins Month ended, but I wound up giving up and jumped through the final few minutes because of the persnicketiness of the criticism. And their run-times have REALLY started to drag on. Everyone's always telling me Spoony and Brad are the ones to watch, but I've not got around to it yet, short of Brad's DVR Hell segments, which I've enjoyed.

That's really rather harsh. Yeah Liz is homely, but she seems like a nice person overall. And speaking from experiences, looks mean jack squat when it comes to the worth of a person.

Also, are they dating or were they just roommates? I ask because I know she's moved.

The problem with Marville is that that persnicketiness is the whole reason for the comic's existence. It's one big inside joke of the comic book industry - that if you don't work for the comic book industry, you won't get any of the jokes.

That being said, he summed up his entire review with that clip from BTAS "Mad Love". Could have ended it right there.

*JesuOtaku's "History of Digimon" is a fascinating retrospective on the Digital Monster sagas.

Doug is... frustrating. I hate his shouty overreacting routine that seems to be what everyone else seems to just love to pieces since he's made it into his "thing" (though the hammyess makes it less uncomfortable to watch than James Rolfe's impression of an angry autistic manchild). But when he's doing a sincere review or even just a deadpan snarky one, it's fine. That's why I love pretty much all of his top 11 videos and the Nostalgia Chick's earlier videos when she was basically aping that style.

Linkara I've gotten in the habit of hanging behind on and watching in clusters when I get severely bored, for some reason. Of the people I can tolerate, he's the most borderline on account of his voice. Though surprisingly he's not a bad voice actor when he's doing mock voices for characters like Batman, Superboy Prime, and '90s Kid. Heck, even Harvey Finevoice. (He's kind of like me in that respect.)

Surprised nobody's brought up Todd in the Shadows yet. I looked up his old YouTube account once out of morbid curiosity thinking he was just another of those wannabe music snobs who say Justin Bieber and Lady Gaga are singlehandedly (doublehandedly?) responsible for the death of good music forever and espousing TEH METAL as the One True Religion (it's always metal for some reason, never indie rock or something, strange)... and was pleasantly surprised to discover that no, he's not like that at all. He makes a lot of good points about the distinction between good pop music and bad pop music, when he does pretend to fly into a rage, his voice is a lot more tolerable than most people's, and his snark is very funny at times. If you can stomach listening to the clips of cheesy pop songs he inserts in between the shots of him critiquing them, I urge you to check him out.

I didn't see a thread about him that wasn't old or even an official disscusion, so I made this thread.

For those who are unaware of him, Nostalgia Critic is a character
played by reviewer Doug Walker who reviews bad (and some good) nostalgic movies and TV shows.
He has tackled some of the worst movies there are such as Batman and Robin, the (poorly) animated Titanic movies,
Battlefield Earth, and the horrendously awful Garbage Pail Kids.

His latest review:

Nostalgia Critic: Star Trek 3 - The search for Spock


Full list of reviews here

I'll try to update this thread every week with his latest video.

OOH! Let me guess... there are bunch of Shatner jokes, right? And Christopher Loyd Doc Brown jokes plus the OH-SO-HILARIOUS "I was frozen today"?
