when you use the character as a header image for a frontpage story, i think you lose the right to complain about anyone else "spoiling things."

Gonzo, start a thread in the main "Transformers Discussion" forum with that information in the title instead.

Toy Galaxy is my favorite overall toy-related channel on YouTube.

@  fourteenwings : (26 February 2020 - 11:29 PM)

Last year's coverage via Toy YouTubers was brilliant. However, since YouTube's new (unfortunately necessary) guidelines the companies barely invited any of them back, so all we get is super-popular collector's info.

@  PlutoniumBoss : (26 February 2020 - 09:19 PM)

If it weren't for Toy Galaxy's coverage video, I would not have known about the Defenders of the Earth figures. New toys of Flash Gordon, The Phantom, and Mandrake the Magician? In 2020? I would have said you were smoking something strong.

@  Nevermore : (26 February 2020 - 06:32 PM)

@  Steevy Maximus : (26 February 2020 - 02:20 PM)

Man, only having collector sites to get Toy Fair news from sucks. Did you know there is a 4" line of kids figures for the new Avengers game coming?

@  Dekafox : (26 February 2020 - 11:54 AM)

Since Omega already exists they could name it Auntie

@  Otaku : (26 February 2020 - 10:07 AM)

Oh, and one last Titan,provided we can fudge things a bit to include a character from Transformers: Animated; how about something at least resembling TF:A Omega Supreme?

@  Otaku : (26 February 2020 - 10:05 AM)

How about they find a way to make a mold they can use for both Broadside and Tidal Wave?

@  Maximus Ambus : (26 February 2020 - 02:13 AM)

Optimus Maximus, the mysterious titan of the Arisen, also Iaconus from Cyberverse.

@  TriBlurr : (25 February 2020 - 12:41 AM)

I think the only other Titan class character that would interest me after Scoponok would be Tidal Wave

@  TheMightyMol... : (24 February 2020 - 07:34 PM)

A Titan would have more room for other toys to hang out, assuming one has the table space for it.

@  Darth Gonzo : (24 February 2020 - 03:32 PM)

Play wise which would be better a Commander Class Aircraft Carrier Mode Broadside or a Titan Class Aircraft Carrier Mode Broadside?

@  PlutoniumBoss : (24 February 2020 - 01:53 PM)

I'd be interested in a deluxe or voyager Fort Max in Armada flashback red-and-green.

@  TheMightyMol... : (24 February 2020 - 10:49 AM)

I'd honestly be more interested in Commander-class Scorponok and Fort Max. I don't have the space for Titans.

@  Maximus Ambus : (24 February 2020 - 10:44 AM)

Make Commander class city bots to annoy collectors too

@  TheMightyMol... : (24 February 2020 - 10:43 AM)

Make two Broadsides. One Voyager-sized that only turns into a jet, and one Titan-sized that only turns into an aircraft carrier. Piss off everyone on both sides of the scale.

@  Rodimus Supreme : (24 February 2020 - 10:41 AM)

Since they seem to also go by the oh-so holy cartoon scale thing, he'd probably be a Commander Class figure.

@  wonko the sane? : (24 February 2020 - 10:34 AM)

Broadside is an aircraft carrier. He should probably be metroplex sized.

@  Rodimus Supreme : (24 February 2020 - 10:21 AM)

Broadside's more of a Commander Class.

@  Darth Gonzo : (24 February 2020 - 04:47 AM)

I think Broadside should be the next Titan Class figure.

@  wonko the sane? : (23 February 2020 - 09:38 PM)

I tan nicely! But also have a family history of cancer... so... yeah, pasty for me it is.

@  Otaku : (23 February 2020 - 04:22 PM)

I really do begin to get sunburned after about 5 minutes of direct exposure, nowadays.  Side effect of already being pasty then going on a particular medication.  Yay?

@  TheMightyMol... : (23 February 2020 - 01:36 PM)

It makes me burn. Accursed daystar.

@  Maximus Ambus : (23 February 2020 - 01:33 PM)

Sunshine on my shoulders makes me happy....

@  Vexwing : (22 February 2020 - 03:26 AM)

I watched L.I.L.Y.Cat on there a while back, it was surprisingly good.

All 3 Transformers movies. They're very fun to watch. What did he get right?

Robots turn into things. The good ones fight the bad ones with violence. Optimus and Megatron are somehow involved. Ya know, the basics of the entire franchise that basically anyone can get right knowing nothing other than the title of the show.

Pop quiz!

What is Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles about?


He may not be everyone's (or anyone's) favorite director, but he knows how to make a movie that people will see...and I'm pretty sure that whoever owns the rights to the turtles will not allow them to actually be aliens....just alien from human...ie: Mutant Turtles who are Teenage Ninjas.

Actually, I've been all about doom and gloom before the quote...since I even heard Bay was attached to this I've had bad feelings. It's just that the quote does little to change my mind and, in fact, made things worse. If he meant "Alien" as in "not human," he chose his words extremely poorly. The way he makes it sound, they weren't just normal turtles who got turned into mutants. They were from an alien RACE. He specifically said "race." So there's not just the four of them, there's a whole civilization of them out there. That's very far from what the turtles are supposed to be, even further than the current IDW comics.?

I can except some changes to the back story. But to make them a whole race? And I'm not buying the whole "alien doesn't necessarilly mean from outerspace" argument. He knew exactly what he was implying.

All 3 Transformers movies. They're very fun to watch. What did he get right?
You can stop right there. Because honestly, I don't give a crap what he got right. And I'll admit, he did get some stuff very much right. I enjoyed the action scenes. It was great hearing Peter Cullen at the helm as Optimus again. He may have gotten quite a few things right.?

But the things he got wrong made it so unbearable, I haven't watched the first movie in forever because of it. The scenes with Sam's mother: Were you masturbating, I had no idea college students put pot in brownies so now I'm gonna act drunk off my ass (and yes, I typed what I meant. She doesn't act high, she acts drunk), Bumblebee peeing on a human, John Turturro's thonged ass right in my face...do I really need to go on? All this toilet humor made it impossible to watch. I would be embarressed to watch this around anyone I know because of this. The third movie thankfully kept this humor to a minimum, though the less said about "Deep Wang" the better. Maybe it's just me, but this completely juvenile toilet humor totally overshadowed what he got right. It's been a good long time since I've watched the first couple movies because of this and it'll probably be a good long time still, if ever, before I ever watch them again.

And then there's the toys. Dear heaven the toys! I'm fine with there being toys of the movie figures. But for the longest time, that's all...there...was. It doesn't help much that finally there's some Transformer Prime toys out, because even those design aesthetics seem closely linked to the movie designs. The generations line is okay, but both these lines are still overshadowed by the "Dark of the Moon" line that, honestly, I've stopped collecting Transformer toys. The designs were all well and good when the movies first came out. But I am so freaking sick of it now that I hardly even look at Transformers whenever I go to the toy section any more.

And don't even get me started on the whole "did not do the research" when it comes to the Rock or the "are you freaking kidding me" when it comes to Armageddon.

I'll give you that one, seeing as how, heaven help me, I actually did watch Transformers 2 and 3 even after the embarrassment of the first one. And as much as I cringe at some of the stupid "didn't do the research" from the Rock, I still actually enjoy that some.?

It's just, in my opinion, he's screwed up the Transformers so much that the last thing I want to see is what he makes of the Turtles.

One man's "unbearable" is another man's "funny." I mean, Dane Cook somehow got a career!


I find the humor in the movies (except for the various leg humpings) to be quite funny, yet am also able to enjoy things such as Fry and Laurie. Such is the nature of such subjective things.


Then again, I'm not even sure why I came in here, never been a huge Turtles fan...carry on chaps!

You seem unable to distinguish between "writer" and "director". A writer writes the stuff that happens in the movie. A director shoots scenes based on this writing.

Got a point there. With most of the movies I watch being James Cameron, Peter Jackson and Tarintino, I've grown used to the director and writer being the same person, it got easy to assume. However, like the quarterback in a football team, no matter what, it's the director that gets the some of the glory and all the blame. These films are still "Bay's films," so anything that happens in them is still either partly to his credit or all his fault.

Well, I think the saving grace here may be that it's "Michael Bay's production company" and not "directed by Michael Bay".

Bay co-produced all the Platinum Dunes/New Line horror films and they didn't reek of any of the Bay-isms some are dreading. ?Granted, some of them were lousy due to the directors working on them, but not directly because of anything Bay-himself did.

So just because it's being produced by one of Bay's companies, so long as Bay-himself isn't directing, I'm not too worried yet.

When I saw Platinum Dune's remake of Nightmare on Elm Street, and saw that Freddy didn't just burn to death- he got caught in a giant explosion, I said to myself, this has Bay's fingerprints all over it. icon-waspy.gif
