@  RichardT1977 : (23 January 2017 - 05:33 PM)

Yamcha would be a better President than Trump...

@  TheMightyMol... : (23 January 2017 - 03:06 PM)

Damning with faint praise there.

@  Bass X0 : (23 January 2017 - 03:06 PM)

Kodos would be a better president than Trump.

@  Echowarrior : (23 January 2017 - 02:29 PM)

*whipcrack*

@  TheMightyMol... : (23 January 2017 - 02:23 PM)

Don't blame me! I voted for Kodos!

@  ▲ndrusi : (23 January 2017 - 10:01 AM)

No, all the evils people voted for in 2016 were known.

@  Rycochet : (23 January 2017 - 09:35 AM)

Didn't people have enough of voting for unknown evils in 2016? Come on, it's so last year.

@  Robowang : (23 January 2017 - 08:49 AM)

woooo Unknown Evil

@  ▲ndrusi : (23 January 2017 - 08:21 AM)

Jinbu has legs that go all the way up.

@  Rycochet : (23 January 2017 - 07:11 AM)

Unless you really like legs that go all the way up to the armpits.

@  Rycochet : (23 January 2017 - 07:11 AM)

I would say repaint Jinbu from Transformers Go, but let's not, they're just awful.

@  Pennpenn : (22 January 2017 - 07:20 AM)

He's samurai themed? Anyway, I meant "samurai themed" in the Bludgeon's Pretender shell sense.

@  NotVeryKnightly : (22 January 2017 - 07:15 AM)

Armada Starscream?

@  Pennpenn : (22 January 2017 - 07:13 AM)

Actually I'm vaguely surprized samurai themed Seekers haven't somehow congealed within the TF brand at some point.

The Big Cheese is the villain, who's lower than low. It's a rotten shame he lives in Little Tokyo.

@  PlutoniumBoss : (21 January 2017 - 12:38 PM)

For the kaiju/restaurant theme, better be the Samurai Pizza Cats instead.

@  Rycochet : (21 January 2017 - 12:28 PM)

I prefer Mighty Morphin' Meower Rangers.

@  PlutoniumBoss : (21 January 2017 - 12:07 PM)

Okay, that got too weird, let's just use the Megazordenny's instead.

@  ▲ndrusi : (21 January 2017 - 09:20 AM)

no, no, not all hope for the characters, all hope for the viewer understanding what the hell is going on.

Isn't that like.. every second spent watching Eva? *hides!*

@  Telly : (21 January 2017 - 02:26 AM)

usually about halfway through, when all hope seems lost

@  Copper Bezel : (21 January 2017 - 02:01 AM)

I understand using Eva to fight monsters, but where does Bob come into it?

@  PlutoniumBoss : (21 January 2017 - 01:29 AM)

Of course we'll need Bob EVAs to fight all these critters...

@  PlutoniumBoss : (21 January 2017 - 01:21 AM)

Or Otachipotle.

Sorry Waspinator, but Sean Bean already reserved that one.

@  Pennpenn : (20 January 2017 - 07:24 PM)

Fair enough, sorry. Although, I think as more people get upset you're going to see it leaking out more.

@  TheMightyMol... : (20 January 2017 - 06:25 PM)

Can the politics stay in P&R? I don't really need an emetic that badly.

@  Pennpenn : (20 January 2017 - 05:37 PM)

All of Trump's base are stone cold morons, so there's that. Then again, a lot of people would argue that America has nevr been "great", or even when it is there's plenty to bring down it's score.

@  Vexwing : (20 January 2017 - 04:18 PM)

A lot of Trump's base would probably claim it stopped being great 8 years ago.

@  Locoman : (20 January 2017 - 03:44 PM)

And today is National Cheese Lover's Day, apparently, so perhaps we should make America grate again while we're at it

@  Bass X0 : (20 January 2017 - 03:43 PM)

How long has it not been great for?

@  Nevermore : (20 January 2017 - 02:34 PM)

Finally, America is great again.

@  wonko the sane? : (20 January 2017 - 12:03 PM)

Me too!

@  Arazyr : (20 January 2017 - 10:08 AM)

My daughters and I have been looking forward to that!

@  Benbot : (20 January 2017 - 09:44 AM)

Nevermind that. Today is a day to celebrate, because season 2 of Voltron is up on Netflix!

@  ShadowMan024 : (19 January 2017 - 06:51 PM)

Past 8 years? Try "past 241."

@  Xellos : (19 January 2017 - 06:44 PM)

So basically the same as the past 8 years. Guess that works too.

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

We as a nation either drank too much or not enough. It's difficult to say, really.

@  PlutoniumBoss : (19 January 2017 - 06:10 PM)

Isn't America being crazy drunk how we got in this situation in the first place?

@  BlackMax : (19 January 2017 - 04:18 PM)

I plan on being very American about every single injustice our new leader perpetrates ("American" of course meaning "annoyed and loud").

@  TheMightyMol... : (19 January 2017 - 02:38 PM)

I plan to just stick my fingers in my ears and pretend I don't hear anything.

@  Bass X0 : (19 January 2017 - 02:26 PM)

I recommend America just get crazy drunk for the next four years. It's the only way you're going to get through them.

@  Paladin : (19 January 2017 - 08:34 AM)

So I've been trying to track down all the harder to find media now that I have a few bucks saved in the old Paypal account, and I've come across a number of these listings on ebay:

http://www.ebay.com/...=item3a70ec8822

Most all of them are from Malaysia and wreak of KO even though the auctions swear they aren't bootlegs. However they are definitely not the Maximum Entertainment UK DVDs (which incidentally are absolutely NOWHERE to be found anywhere.) Does anyone have any experience or knowledge in what these are? RiD and Armada are some of the last series I don't own, short of old VHS recordings. And with those I don't even have a full RiD because of September 11th. The Armada sets are going for an arm and a leg, even used.

Yeah it's odd. The entire series has been released twice on DVD in the UK and used to be everywhere, but the DVDs are going for silly money nowadays!

Well, the Maximum ones are whatever the DVD equivalent of "out of print" is these days and have been for a while, so it comes as no surprise that they're going for big money when a large like the US doesn't have the show available domestically. I think a lot of Americans got wise and imported it!

I have that DVD, and it indeed has all episodes from RID.
I have to say that it is a KO, which is usually burned from the original source, or a collection of downloaded files from the internet. They play well on most DVD players, but don't expect any bonus content.

Do the discs glass mastered, and do they have any art on them?
How is the overall quality for a KO? Are they on par with say, the Disney 90's X-Men DVDs?
For 25 bucks it might be worth it, considering there's nary a Maximum Entertainment auction on ebay.

I bought a set off of iOffer a few years ago that is a rip of the UK release with the extra's intact. They weren't much though, mostly just the japanese Car Robots toy commercials. The set ran me less than $20 and it's great quality.

I'd still snap up an offical release in a second!

Those actually weren't extras on the UK set, so that's something different.

Oh well, they're still cool to have, and they're still dvd quality. They're not just episodes copied off of tv.

I think these were ripped from the first UK release which was supposed to have had some minor special features. The following release had none.

I just checked and I was mistaken. I paid $25 for this set, but I actually paid extra because I wanted a dvd case and accompanying artwork which was extra.

I found some on iOffer from a different seller here. Might be worth checking out.

Well, that cover artwork is definitely lifted from the second UK release of the series. As far as extras went, the UK just had character profiles.

Thanks Shockwave...I checked out the listing and looks like it is in PAL...does that mean the DVD won't play right for Americans? Not too familiar with how that works when it comes to DVD's.

One more question for McFeely (or any UK allsparkers): will the official set work in american DVD players, or a PS3?
This set: http://tfwiki.net/wi...D_Box_Set_1.jpg
