Even if it's just 4 bucks, people shouldn't be patronizing obvious scams.

What's the shipping price?

@  Steevy Maximus : (27 May 2017 - 05:18 PM)

Yeah, but it's cheaper than all the Hong Kong sellers running at $65+

@  2017 : (27 May 2017 - 05:07 PM)

It sounds like a scam.

Titan Masters is filled with false advertising, Grax doesn't make any figure invisible and Xort doesn't do anything with gravity. Maybe they'll be in the Transformer toys of tomorrow which will be actual robots with AI.

Thor was a great guy. Same as most of the Asgard. Loki was a jerk, though.

@  wonko the sane? : (26 May 2017 - 07:21 PM)

@  wonko the sane? : (26 May 2017 - 07:17 PM)

I always interpreted that scene to mean that asgardians weren't capable of breaking down problems in the same way as humans.

@  Pennpenn : (26 May 2017 - 06:58 AM)

I mean, SG1 was a good show on balance. One of my favourite things was Thor admitting he found humans good to keep around because they so often came up with stupid ideas that nevertheless worked out.

@  Whirl Maximus : (26 May 2017 - 05:59 AM)

Those episodes were 1969 and 2010.

@  Whirl Maximus : (26 May 2017 - 05:59 AM)

Stargate sg1 was loosely based on the movie, it thrived on continuity it was impressive how old situations and solutions would come back in unexpected ways. Continuum had it's villain use the characters own solution in two previous episodes against them.

@  Pennpenn : (26 May 2017 - 05:39 AM)

And yeah, name is based on a part of my surname. Can't remember why I picked it. Lost to memories of the primordial early 2000s.

@  Pennpenn : (26 May 2017 - 05:37 AM)

Like how Abydos in the movie is in another galaxy on the far side of the universe, but Abydos in SG1 is the closest world to Earth (and that was the only reason the gate could still get there) and even getting to other galaxies was impossible with the normal gates.

@  Pennpenn : (26 May 2017 - 05:35 AM)

I was very tired when I said that, but what I meant was a lot of stuff that is in the original Stargate movie is contradicted a lot in Stargate SG1.

I remember a fanfic that had Swindle as Lawyer.

@  SHIELD Agent 47 : (25 May 2017 - 10:08 PM)

No, I am referring to before Beast Wars: Uprising. I swear Swindle was a lawyer in a story before "A Brush With Infamy".

i cant get the link to work for the life of me. just go to the wiki and type "a brush with infamy" in the search box and itll come up

@  SHIELD Agent 47 : (25 May 2017 - 09:25 PM)

I swear I've read the story but now I forget which one it is.

@  SHIELD Agent 47 : (25 May 2017 - 09:25 PM)

When has G1 Swindle been a lawyer before?

@  Rycochet : (25 May 2017 - 07:20 PM)

All I know about PennPenn is he's so good they named him twice.

@  Tm_Silverclaw : (25 May 2017 - 07:02 PM)

Nope.. Pennpenn is actually a Prinny dood!

@  Foffy : (25 May 2017 - 06:47 PM)

I wonder if Pennpenn is related to Sean Penn.

@  Kalidor : (25 May 2017 - 04:31 PM)

So, didja hear? Pac-Man is getting a new animated series!

It's being co-produced by Avi Arad and Rick Ungar (X-Men: Evolution, Biker Mice from Mars), will be in 3D, and is coming to Disney XD in Fall 2013.

More info and a blurry video can be seen here.

Plus, the original Pac-Man cartoon's first season just came out on DVD, though $35.99 seems a bit much for only one of the two seasons.

As far as the new one goes, I'm hoping this leads to a new round of Pac-Merchandise... seems like a natural direction, given that Bandai Namco are the owners of the IP.

Isn't the price of the original Pac-Man season one cartoon that high because it's only available through Warner Archives?

Pac-Man's voice is a tad... grating. I grew up with the Hanna Barbara series, so I'm so used to seeing him as a middle class family man that suddeny "squeaky voiced kid" has taken me by surprise.

The show looks neat, though, and I like how they're incorporating all the abstract concepts of the arcade game into a semi-coherent universe.

And was that Inky, Blinky, Pinky and Clyde at the end?

Anyway, I'll give it a shot.

I mean, no matter what way you cut it, it's still a show based on a game from the infancy of the industry.

It's some manner of incredible challenge to make it any good while still incorporating everything that it is.

Yes, but it also means no Ms. Pac-Man and no Pac-Baby.

The show from the 80s wasn't great, but it was a pretty original take on what amounts to a game based on a guy eating pills at a rave.

Maybe that will come later on in the show... and she can actually be MS. Pac-Man, instead of his wife, Pepper.

As for the voice, it's grown on me. But yeah, it caught me off-guard as well. Still, I think it will help appeal to kids, which is what the franchise really needs right now, in my opinion.

And yes, those are the ghosts in there, though I think I heard somewhere (mind, this was over a year ago) that they're his friends? Could make for an interesting tale...

If you want a better look at the designs, here they are in one of the games.

I like this idea. I think I'll go with this.

...incidentally, I think a teaser trailer is probably not the best thing to gauge voice acting by, but it seemed alright to me for what it was.

I remember seeing this video quite a while ago. I predicted then that the purple pac-girl with the buckled boots was the daughter of the evil ghost overlord with his buckled gloves. She has a kind of goth quality about her, and he's a ghost. Yeah, I think there'll be some plot twist about that. And could they not make a non-3D trailer available? The fact that this blurry thing is still all we have to go on is just sad.

Well, it is a reboot of sorts. I don't know if they have a specific thing set up for the blinking or not, though we saw some of that in the first clip, if I remember right.

I think the glowing might be saved more for the possessions and zappings; Pac is still eating berry-pellets to go after them, though.

Actually, this "style" is intentional, it's gotten popular in a lot of CGI animation shows recently, specifically the cheaper, cartoony ones. It's an attempt to imitate older cartoons but it can be a bit weird and erratic if you're not used to it.

Hooo boy. I guess I'll reserve judgment until I can see a full episode, but it's just hard to watch even a 5 minute clip. Maybe once I see the 4 original ghosts in action, I'll enjoy it more.
