@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.

@  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)

@  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.

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

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

@  Steevy Maximus : (21 May 2017 - 09:49 PM)

I remember when it took 3 hours to download a 240p, 2.5 minute movie trailer

@  MEDdMI : (21 May 2017 - 09:02 PM)

@  MEDdMI : (21 May 2017 - 09:02 PM)

June 29th 2014. That's a Sunday. Anyway, I'm very okay with Michael Bay doing Transformers 4. I think I read on Facebook somewhere that TF4 is planned to take place between ROTF and DOTM. That way, many of the Decepticons could "come back". Myabe we'll finally get to see the death of Skids and Mudflap. icon-fire.gif

Secret evil badguy (Straxus) is revealed to have had issues with Megatron in the past and created a clone of him with Straxus' personality ... it then met Sentinal Prime... lost the cube and however the hell the fallen fits in there.

movie 4.. THE REAL MEGATRON WAKES UP AND BRINGS SKYWARP BRUTICUS and Slipstream to earth after hearing Prime's repeated signals that that's where he is.

What I am excited about: More possible movie toys, possible continuation of the Human Alliance range, possible actual release of Human Alliance Soundwave.

What I am not excited about: Michael Bay. After ROTF, I actually thought they would make a better film with DOTM... no, turns out I really just can't stand Michael Bay. Do you know how many films Rosie Huntington-Whiteley has starred in since DOTM? None. Because every other director on the planet is not a hugging idiot.

I know it will make as much difference as a leaf in a snowstorm, but I am not paying to see this film.

I'm glad to see another movie being made, and I really am not so disappointed that Bay is at the helm once again *Ducks multiple thrown objects from the bay haters!* My only concern is... Who's left to terrorize the Earth and make trouble for the Autobots to go into action against? Most every Decepticon that was even mentioned in the movies are now dead or offlined. Unicron? Hard to get him into the story without some really shaky plot twists. Thunderwing? meh... Jhiaxus? Too obscure a character to sell to anyone other than the really dedicated fans, regular moviegoers won't know jack about him.

Hoping that this one will be a reboot (If that happens) that can be appreciated by both new and old fans alike without slapping either fandom in the face or blatantly insulting the longtime fans of the genre.

I've no problem with Bay helming things still, other than wanting to see what others might have had to offer. I don't mind Bay's style as much as many do; he just needs to be reined in and supplied with a decent script. And kept the hell away from deserts. I hope they stick to launching it in 2014 at the earliest, not moving it up a year even to holiday 2013.

What I have more of an issue with is the look for some characters -- particularly the frontrunners Prime, Bee, etc -- needs to evolve a step as I think even the general public might be getting burnt out on them [I know I am].

Plot-wise, it might be to their benefit to start with a mostly-new batch of characters [Decepticon-wise they have almost no choice]. But I'd love to see them try their hand at prequels, so they can keep the earlier cast and possibly even flesh them out a bit. Then again, this might end up giving the characters either Cybertronian-only bodies or forms similar to the first film's...

EDIT: Oh, now it's a "re-imagining" apparently. Hurm.

Actually I think Hasbro is going to have learned their lesson with DotM and pull a G.I. Joe Retaliation and have a scaled back line compared to the first 3 movies.

At least that's what I hope.

Well, I can't say i'm surprised. The amount of money the third film made basically sealed the deal. I imagine that Paramount literally drove a dumptruck full of cash up to Bay's mansion.

Even though I enjoyed the reaction to "Give me your face" and ax-murder-to-the-head Prime, even i'm getting tired of the movie-verse as it is.

Well, these guys are obviously professionals, so i'm sure they'll put something together that makes ridiculous amounts of money. I just hope it's coherent.

You know, to this day I still love part 1. What a great, stupid, fun movie that was. I bought the Barricade toy soon as I could. He was the only movie-toy I ever (and will ever) bought.

Part 2 and 3 just didn't do it for me. But it's with part 3 that I feel we saw what Bay could do when he was at the top of his game. More robot carnage than ever before. More giant set pieces and explosions and a movie over 2 1/2 hours long to accomplish everything he wanted. But to me, the whole thing just felt hollow and soulless. I left the theater for the 2nd time in a row feeling underwhelmed by a Transformers movie.

Maybe if someone would actually churn out a good script, Bay could make something worthwhile. Maybe. But now it's a reboot?? Why a reboot? Part 1 only just came out 5 years ago. What in the world do we need a reboot for? To try and get it right this time? Sorry, but that's not going to happen. It's another Michael Bay film. He's already had three tries. It's just not going to happen.

I'm honestly considering just skipping this one. All I'm feeling is disinterest and apathy. I just don't care about TF4.

The point is that Bay focuses so heavily on effects, on realistic military doings, and not incidentally on big explosions, that the whole "heart and magic" thing got totally lost in the shuffle in RotF and didn't exist at all with DotM.

I don't CARE how he gets his film jets. I care about a good story. Can't he blow a little more of his budget on that instead of Air Force recruitment shots?

The prospect of the movie interests me, but if the design aesthetic stays the same as the last three, I'm going to be saving a lot of money for a few months.

They'll probably make them more G1 like to give us the illusion that it's going to be a much better movie (we, the fans, are additional cash cows, while the primary cash cows - the general audience will go to see it either way).
