They're all red.

@  Paladin : (23 May 2017 - 05:20 PM)

what color are their bandanas?

@  MEDdMI : (23 May 2017 - 04:48 PM)

*rescue, though

@  MEDdMI : (23 May 2017 - 04:47 PM)

Hooray, animal rescue! TMM & I have a red-eared slider. Not a resdue,

@  Noideaforaname : (23 May 2017 - 03:26 PM)

@MEDdMI - Me and my teacher both had box turtles. The teach did animal rescue work, so two of her turtles were actually deformed and couldn't be released (one's shell was too large and the other's too small), so they ended up being class pets.

@  LBD "Nyt... : (23 May 2017 - 02:12 PM)

They had regular flat, cereal bowl-type molding at the bottom, so it wasn't much an issue that I can recall.

@  OrionPax44 : (23 May 2017 - 02:10 PM)

How tough is it to clean out those bowls. I'd imagine the nooks and crannies from their spines are tough areas.

@  LBD "Nyt... : (23 May 2017 - 01:47 PM)

I had two of those bowls, Michelangelo and Donatello

@  MEDdMI : (23 May 2017 - 01:46 PM)

Nice. What kind of turtles?

@  Noideaforaname : (23 May 2017 - 01:10 PM)

I had that turtle bowl too. Never did the obvious 'pretend to be Shredder and dine on turtle soup'... but that's because I had a bunch of pet turtles plus I frequently pet-sat a teacher's trio.

@  TheMightyMol... : (23 May 2017 - 12:36 PM)

You ate out of a Ninja Turtle? Kinky.

@  NightViper : (23 May 2017 - 12:33 PM)

My bowl didn't just have a picture of a Ninja Turtle, it WAS a Ninja Turtle. And came with a box of Cookie Crisp that I didn't eat.

@  Foffy : (23 May 2017 - 12:31 PM)

My favorite dish is this bowl I had as a kid that had a picture of a Ninja Turtle on it.

Can't believe the Dragon Half manga is finally being translated this year.

@  Bass X0 : (23 May 2017 - 03:22 AM)

DRAGON HALF!

@  MEDdMI : (22 May 2017 - 09:00 PM)

Xellos...? *looks at avatar pic* speaking of old anime... DRAGON SLAVE!!!

@  Xellos : (22 May 2017 - 08:56 PM)

Yeah, Tylor is awesome. One of the few series (Tylor and Escaflowne) I watched multiple times subtitled. On VHS even. Own two sets of each on DVD (or BD in 2nd Escaflowne's case). Original Tylor DVD and the remastered DVD, and both sets of dubs for Escaflowne (not counting the aborted Saturday morning edit, though I did tape that as it aired).

@  Steevy Maximus : (22 May 2017 - 08:28 PM)

Man, I'm so sad I missed so much of the mid-90s anime. The Irresponsible Captain Tylor is SO MUCH FUN!

@  Paladin : (22 May 2017 - 11:43 AM)

where's GALVATRON in MP form dammit?! he didn't even get in for the anniversary year...

@  TheMightyMol... : (22 May 2017 - 11:35 AM)

I'm still waiting on the rest of the Dinobots.

@  Robowang : (22 May 2017 - 11:24 AM)

The Decepticon MP cassettes are probably my favorite MP figures so far. Fantastic little dudes.

@  Bass X0 : (22 May 2017 - 11:23 AM)

I want a Masterpiece Blaster if only because I'm fond of the Masterpiece cassettes and want Takara to make more. They should also do Slugfest and Overkill since they were in the cartoon too, even if it was only very briefly.

@  Robowang : (22 May 2017 - 11:21 AM)

I just want the Chip figure. The only Autobot cars I have or want are G2 Sideswipe and Hot Rod.

@  Paladin : (22 May 2017 - 11:14 AM)

another Autobot car. "yaaaaaay."

@  Benbot : (22 May 2017 - 11:02 AM)

I haven't been this excited about a new MP since the Datsuns! He looks amazing

@  Robowang : (22 May 2017 - 11:01 AM)

I love the little human figures with the MP line. Is it just young Spike, Future Spike, and Daniel so far?

@  Robowang : (22 May 2017 - 11:00 AM)

And it comes with Chip Chase! I will order just for that! Holy crap!

@  Bass X0 : (22 May 2017 - 10:55 AM)

Whoo! Masterpiece Sunstreaker!

@  Bass X0 : (22 May 2017 - 08:45 AM)

@  DeltaSeeker : (22 May 2017 - 08:40 AM)

I remember loading games on my Vic20 from an audio tape.

@  Paladin : (22 May 2017 - 08:37 AM)

anyone remember "Chex Quest?"

@  Robowang : (22 May 2017 - 07:13 AM)

I never played those. I had, like, two-color bootleg files of Donkey Kong and stuff like that with 50 games on a disk.

@  MEDdMI : (22 May 2017 - 07:11 AM)

not pure text games, but you still had to use text input to do stuff. "PICK UP flask", etc

@  MEDdMI : (22 May 2017 - 07:05 AM)

I think those were the old King's Quest/Space Quest ones

@  Robowang : (22 May 2017 - 07:02 AM)

I remember floppy disk games! Never gamed enough to own one that was more than a disk, though.

@  MEDdMI : (22 May 2017 - 07:01 AM)

I remember booting things from DOS, and games that were like 10 floppy disks big.

@  Robowang : (22 May 2017 - 06:57 AM)

@  Robowang : (22 May 2017 - 06:57 AM)

Oh man, the days of Realplayer and AIM and man, I can't believe how long ago that was.

@  TM2-Megatron : (22 May 2017 - 01:00 AM)

ugh, RealMedia was pretty awful. RealPlayer was so bloated and buggy, I tried to avoid it

@  siccoyote : (22 May 2017 - 12:17 AM)

I remember downloading Realmedia episodes of Beast Wars Season 3, days after they were shown in Americ, but the quality was terrible and the guy who did it wasted half of a stereo audio track because he recorded it in mono. Took many hours to download

@  TM2-Megatron : (21 May 2017 - 09:55 PM)

Yeah, I remember those days. I had a bunch of Quicktime clips from Beasties/Beast Wars and Reboot, most of which I had to leave the computer on overnight to get, lol

Looked neat!

Never change.



Well, to be honest, I wasn't expecting much at all from this film, as I felt it was way too soon to reboot the franchise. Yet the trailer surprised and impressed me. It actually made me want to see this film. Denis Leary playing a semi-serious role is quite a nice surprise, as is Gwen Stacy, which Emma Stone looks so perfect in the role to me. I didn't mind the organic web shooters in the last series of films, but these webshooters look awesome! having Peter being focused on science this time could be really cool, and I am hoping that it plays well into the story. Speaking of which, The Lizard! Finally! I can't wait to see how they portray him! It looked like from the trailer that he is more underhanded as Dr Connors, and isn't just a villain when he's the Lizard. I'll be interested in seeing how that works out.

Really, the only thing that could make this movie better for me is if at the end, Shield/Avengers show up and take the Lizard into custody. I think that this could be a neat Spiderman to have in the Marvel Movieverse.


This film went from Pass, to definitely watch. Whether or not I will see it in the theaters or wait for the Blu-ray and watch it on my 131" projection screen, I have not yet decided.



TL:DR Looked neat!

Restoring an Old Arcade Machine!

I still don't think they've got Peter Parker right. I agree about the mask off stuff being bad. I actually prefer the organic web shooters idea, I prefer Spiderman's signiture ability to be a power rather than something he's made himself.

It looks like Spider-Man by way of Kick Ass.

I'm not liking it. As others have said, it feels way to inspired by the likes of Batman Begins. Plus this doesn't strike me as a Peter who wisecracks to deal with the stress of fighting crime but a smart ass who got super powers and took it in stride. It doesn't look like a bad movie, just not a Spider-Man movie.

The best thing about this trailer, is what they left out from the last one: F.P.S.

First Person Spidey

It looked like a bad cutscene from a videogame.

Hopefully they either improved it, or got rid of it altogether.

Man, that thing was all over the place.

I do wonder how the Uncle Ben story is going to play out this time around. They can't possibly be thinking of rehashing the "Peter becomes a callous celebrity" story again so soon. Seeing as how Peter blames himself for the Lizard's creation, I wonder if Ben ends up as gator chow?

The problem comes in that it takes away from the character. He didn't get ALL of his Spider Powers from the bite so, being the super smart guy he is, he made one up for himself.

Making it just another power takes away that intelligence and ingenuity.

My problem is that no matter how good this movie is, I'll be distracted the whole time thinking about how much better and cooler this would/could be if it was in the Marvel movie verse. That said, it doesn't look great.

That really is an issue, even though it's not this movie's fault.

The same year that we're getting the culmination of a cinematic superhero universe built on 5 previous movies, we're also getting...a Spider-Man reboot. Fair or not, it's tough to build up the same amount of enthusiasm.

Yeah, pretty 'ugh'. The Lizard has a too human-like face, he looks more like Killer Croc. I like Spidey's costume, but the actor is just not how I imagine Peter Parker. And I really don't care for the whole darker tone - Spiderman fighting cops and the military? Getting unmasked? Really? He is not friggin' Batman...

The female lead is attractive, but that's all the positives so far.

Personally I look at it the same way I see the DC direct to DVD/Blu Ray movies. In where they are stand alone series. Sure the reboot sucks, but whatever... this movie isn't going to affect my life in anyway.

I would even like that model as Killer Croc for a Batman movie (in some comics, he does have a tail) but for the Lizard, it adds to his inhuman-ness that he has a long snout AND yet he talks and acts like a human. (Which I wonder if this version will even do...)

That, and I do hope we at least have one scene where he is still wearing a tattered lab coat with a 'Dr. Connors' nametag.

Any word on whether Norman Osborn is in this one, and who plays him? Since the Oscorp building was shown...

Will watch this at the cinemas, because I am a sucker for comic book movies (only one I did not watch in theaters was The Spirit) but I don't have high expectations. The darker tone is especially a poor choice for a movie that comes out the same year as Dark Knight Rises.
