90s Nicktoons were awful.

Yeah, I'd get really pumped to watch it and the other Nicktoons.

@  LBD "Nyt... : (26 February 2017 - 07:40 AM)

Also, I digged Doug. Mostly for the ancillary characters, though. Doug himself is one of those characters who gets into situations that make YOU feel embarrassd. Like Fred Savage on The Wonder Years.

I remember Today's Special. The Toronto part was something of a revelation from my wife and her family when I came here.

Anyone else remember Puttnam's Prairie Emporium? Not sure if it aired outside Canada

@  TM2-Megatron : (25 February 2017 - 11:21 PM)

Today's Special was a favourite of mine. Some of it was actually filmed at a department store here in Toronto

@  PlutoniumBoss : (25 February 2017 - 10:34 PM)

Eureka! and Start Here were awesome too.

@  The Doctor Who : (25 February 2017 - 09:59 PM)

I remember watching Newton's Apple on PBS. That's where I learned about thermal insulation layers and why things change temperature faster when you blow on them.

Today's Special was my jam!

@  ShadowMan024 : (25 February 2017 - 07:57 PM)

Hey Arnold! was better.

@  Echowarrior : (25 February 2017 - 06:42 PM)

And then bought out by Disney.

@  Echowarrior : (25 February 2017 - 06:42 PM)

It certainly wasn't a terrible show. I think it was just overshadowed by its contemporaries.

@  TheMightyMol... : (25 February 2017 - 06:19 PM)

I mean, it's not like it was bad, it was just kinda....there. Not especially memorable.

@  TheMightyMol... : (25 February 2017 - 06:18 PM)

That requires us to remember that Doug happened, though.

@  TriBlurr : (25 February 2017 - 01:04 PM)

Just send him to whatever world the Cartoon Doug took place in. Lots of purple people there

@  unluckiness : (25 February 2017 - 03:55 AM)

It's gonna go hungry after eating that mind-control guy

@  Waspinator : (25 February 2017 - 03:49 AM)

It's eating purple people and it sure is fine.

@  TheMightyMol... : (25 February 2017 - 02:27 AM)

It's a one-eyed, one-horned, flying, purple people eater!

@  Pennpenn : (25 February 2017 - 12:43 AM)

But it's purple?

@  Noideaforaname : (25 February 2017 - 12:28 AM)

It was also instituted because the difference between Mega and Ultra was, word-wise, not very obvious.

That's also why Super got axed in favor of Leader.

You say that, but Basics/Scouts don't exist as part of the mainline any more - the closest equivalent (Cyberverse Cmdr) is now the large class of the small-scale line.

Which, of course, makes "Deluxe" a nonsense title, since how can the most basic type of toy in the line be "Deluxe"? icon-waspy.gif

And "Mega" and "Ultra" aren't nouns in common usage, so talking about "a mega" or "an ultra" just sounds weird icon-arcee.gif


You're missing the point.

And now Leader's been axed in favor of Weaponizer!

(I don't see Voyagers going anywhere though: the $20-$25 price-point is used in almost every major toy-line: if Hasbro gives it up, it'll be because everyone else has too.)
Being part of any fandom is fundamentally embarassing.

Well, the Bumblebee packaging did say "Weaponizer Class" on it, but nowhere did it say "Leader Class". But more importantly, the Prime "Weaponizer" class toys are not Leader class toys. It's a new size class entirely. The Weaponizers seem to be a bit smaller, and MUCH MUCH simpler than the Leaders, coming in at a $30 price point, and not a $45 one as Leaders were. This is of course assuming that the information at toyfair was accurate and reported accurately.

With no more movie line, Generations only being deluxes, and Prime seeming to have "Weaponizers" but not Leaders, it would seem that the Leader size class died with Ironhide... icon-screamer.gif
Ah, Vehicons... EXTERMINATE!...yes.

Jerry Jivoin told me himself at Toy Fair!

...along with the whole 'Powerizers/Revealers aren't the new names for Voyagers/Deluxes'.
