Wonderful audio separation and balance.

@  Steevy Maximus : (30 November 2020 - 09:29 PM)

For Transformers The Movie 86

@  Steevy Maximus : (30 November 2020 - 09:28 PM)

I will say, the blu ray remaster, especially the audio is pretty spot on. Watching it on Apple TV has been enlightening.

@  SHIELD Agent 47 : (30 November 2020 - 09:00 PM)

Vode An!

@  SHIELD Agent 47 : (30 November 2020 - 08:59 PM)

I do not overly care for the Bad Batch, but it will be interesting to see what the animated series will bring to the table.

@  SHIELD Agent 47 : (30 November 2020 - 08:59 PM)

Alpha, Delta Squad, Omega Squad, and the Muunilinst 10 are quite the contrast to what we have at present in Disney canon.

@  SHIELD Agent 47 : (30 November 2020 - 08:57 PM)

Who else here read the pre-2008 Clone Commandos and ARC Troopers back in the day?

@  tigerhawk : (30 November 2020 - 05:04 PM)

Monoliths in Utah and Romania.

@  Sabrblade : (29 November 2020 - 05:11 PM)

Also, the face of the black redeco is painted gray.

@  Sabrblade : (29 November 2020 - 05:09 PM)

To be a little fair, the original was also lacking in more detailed color. The Telemocha Series figure fixed that.

@  TheMightyMol... : (29 November 2020 - 05:05 PM)

The unpainted face and all the greys make that look like a knockoff.

@  Sabrblade : (29 November 2020 - 05:01 PM)

One could headcanon this one as such.

Decided to stick with the main cast from 2007 and a few assorted ones here and there.

@  TheMightyMol... : (27 November 2020 - 02:02 PM)

I said I wouldn't buy a lot, now I have seven. And at least three might be on the culling pile.

@  Sabrblade : (25 November 2020 - 12:46 PM)

There was also an evil-looking black and gray redeco of the RobotMasters toy

@  Arazyr : (25 November 2020 - 11:54 AM)

That's KIND-OF what I consider the Throne of the Primes Primal to be...

@  wonko the sane? : (25 November 2020 - 11:16 AM)

I would buy the hell out a nemesis primal...

@  Bass X0 : (25 November 2020 - 11:15 AM)

I'm surprised there's not been a Nemesis Primal given all the Nemesis Primes.

@  unluckiness : (23 November 2020 - 03:17 AM)

The real Drifts were the Windblades we made along the way

@  PlutoniumBoss : (23 November 2020 - 02:25 AM)

Drift-kun 2 Electric Boobylube

@  ▲ndrusi : (22 November 2020 - 11:36 PM)

I'm pretty sure Drift 2 was Empire of Stone.

@  Sabrblade : (22 November 2020 - 10:06 PM)

I thought people said Prime Wheeljack was Drift 2.

@  tigerhawk : (22 November 2020 - 03:51 PM)

Windblade was Drift.2.

@  TheMightyMol... : (22 November 2020 - 02:44 PM)

Drift with boobs.

@  Rycochet : (22 November 2020 - 11:50 AM)

I can't imagine a live action movie version of Windblade being all that different from Drift. Not my thing, but not the worst thing I've ever seen.

@  Bass X0 : (22 November 2020 - 09:54 AM)

The thought of Movie aesthetic Windblade makes me feel sick.

@  NotVeryKnightly : (22 November 2020 - 08:47 AM)

Though, the fact that Japanese people would pay for Windblade toys in the $30-40 range doesn't mean they'd pay however much MPs are going for now.

@  NotVeryKnightly : (22 November 2020 - 08:44 AM)

Back when I made a habit of checking Mandarake for pre-owned TFs, Windblade's toys went for surprisingly high prices. By which I mean not lower than the original price.

@  tigerhawk : (22 November 2020 - 08:15 AM)

If she's in the next movie you might get her.

@  unluckiness : (22 November 2020 - 07:58 AM)

Japan didn't get most of the IDW comics and are the target market for MP. They basically know windblade from a few crappy pack-in comics and a show that wasn't particularly popular there. Unless they start cranking out Cyberverse MPs, it's not very likely.

@  TheMightyMol... : (22 November 2020 - 04:24 AM)

Again, depends if she's popular enough in Japan to warrant it. Our view of which characters are popular is not the same as Takara's.

@  Bass X0 : (22 November 2020 - 01:53 AM)

So characters like Windblade then.

@  TheMightyMol... : (21 November 2020 - 07:19 PM)

They're complicated and expensive to design. By necessity, they're gonna be restricted to well-known characters who are more likely to sell.

@  Bass X0 : (21 November 2020 - 07:05 PM)

I don’t think Masterpiece toys should be restricted to only show characters.

@  Rycochet : (21 November 2020 - 03:09 PM)

If she wasn't in the Sunbow cartoon, Live Action movie or Beast Wars and can't be repainted from someone else, she's not getting an MP.

@  wonko the sane? : (21 November 2020 - 12:44 PM)

They'll make their money back if they include the metal thong...

@  TheMightyMol... : (21 November 2020 - 12:29 PM)

Is she popular enough in Japan that Takara would even try?

@  Paladin : (21 November 2020 - 11:23 AM)

depends. will that one also have a giant metal thong?

@  Bass X0 : (21 November 2020 - 11:10 AM)

Should there be a Masterpiece Windblade?

@  -LittleAutob... : (20 November 2020 - 12:46 PM)

For those of us who never read the comics, which I believe I represent a fairly large percentage of the overall audience, most of this stuff is new. The only thing we know is Stane's movie death and know nothing about his suicide. We don't know the Mandarin at all, etc. If they tie in the Ten Rings back to the first film then it fits more of the universe together for those of us who weren't aware of them or the comics.

I think a lot of things may work nicely in front of a general audience...although they might not be completely adherring to specific story arcs in the comics which might incite a bit of fanrage. IM2 didn't up the game very much in regards to suit tech or baddie from IM1. It was a good film that went a long way in fleshing out Black Widow, Nick Fury, etc. But part of the fun of Iron Man, at least for me, was seeing him do cool new things with the suit. In that regard Avengers actually did a whole lot better job of upping the game. You have Tony with the new de-suiting machine on top of the building which was pretty wicked. You have the new suit which afixes itself mid-air, etc.

Whiplash's finale was rather short. His threat seemed greater in Monaco without the suit he had later in the film. The drones just didn't present a threat. They mowed them down without any issue. It was like the drones were shooting blanks. Then you had that cool laser thing Tony did but all that did was just make the threat even less intense.

IM3 needs to up the game on both Tech, which will certainly happen with Extremis if they do it right(just watched the Marvel Knights motion comic on that), and the suspense if they bring in some credible people who can be more a threat in the final act.

-ZacWilliam, also not against Ben Kingsley as the Mandarin, but being Chinese is kinda who the Mandarin is. I mean his name IS "the Mandarin". Maybe Kingsley's character really likes oranges?


Well, a Mandarin was originally "(in the Chinese Empire) a member of any of the nine ranks of public officials, each distinguished by a particular kind of button worn on the cap." so I could see it as a name of a powerful crimlord/terrorist operating in China. Alternatively, maybe he's super secrative and outside of his direct subordinates, the only thing anyone knows about him is that he speaks Mandarin Chinese (and thus it's a shock he himself is not Chinese)

QUOTE(DrSpengler @ May 30 2012, 01:58 PM) <{POST_SNAPBACK}>
"It would be an Abomination."

I love these movies like nobody's business, but their way of using the character names only as "sly jokes" has kinda gotten old. Did Whiplash ever get a name drop in "Iron Man 2" or was he strictly called Vanko?


Blonksy is referred to as the Abomination by Sitwell (Coulson's sidekick) in Marvel One-Shot: The Consultant. So that name, at least, stuck.

QUOTE(Database @ May 30 2012, 02:17 PM) <{POST_SNAPBACK}>
AIM and MODOK would be really good film material. A terrorist group focused on super sciences is right up Iron Man's alley for these movies, plenty of material for special effect fights with any number of super weapons or other tech they've stole or devolped, before revealing their greatest creation: MODOK a human super computer that can easily out think anyone with access to tech that would give anyone trouble in straight fight.


I was always hoping they'd use AIM as the antagonists in the Ant-Man movie. SCIENCE! versus EVIL SCIENCE!

I was more diappointed that they decided to basically make him Crimson Dynamo but didn't make him Crimson Dynamo. And now they can't use Crimson Dynamo. Booooooo!


There was plenty of time between activation of the bomb and detonation for Vanko to slip away. Not to mention, nothing stated implied his suit was rigged to blow and it wasn't just the Hammeroids.


They'd have to recast him, since Mickey Rourke pretty much burned his bridges with Marvel while trying to publicity for The Immortals (referring to director Jon Favreau as "having no balls" and saying the Immortals is better than "some Marvel piece of !@#$"

I agree with you that he could easily be alive. You do NOT put a big flashing light in your chest if you want to try to take your enemy out in an explosion. You do it so he'll run away, giving you time to limp your broke butt to safety. icon-fire.gif

QUOTE
Speaking of Ghost, I'm disappointed. If they're still squeamish to be using the Mandarin, then go with Ghost and the Spymaster instead. Strikes me you could easily use the Extremis plot with those two, without having to tie in Mandarin.

It's funny, Ghost was strongly rumored before all this casting stuff came out. I was kinda looking forward to seeing him.

QUOTE
Speaking of the Mandarin, and speaking as a long time Iron Man fan, I hope he doesn't show up in the films. Mandarin is Iron Man's iconic villain...but his motivations are hopelessly undefined.

Eh, if they're changing his race, now is as good a time as any to create some defined goals for him.

QUOTE(Rust @ May 30 2012, 02:56 PM) <{POST_SNAPBACK}>
That was the story that convinced me the Mandarin just isn't villain material. He's the go-to Plot Device when a story falls to pieces or they just need filler. If I want Tony to match wits with a evil genius, I'll stick to his tussles with Doctor Doom.

As mentioned, the movie rights to Doctor Doom are wrapped in the Fantastic Four license, and Fox will likely do everything in it's power to keep them, so Doom is out as a potential option.

If you watch the scene, Whiplash is beating the crap out of Tony and Rhodey and it was only through the use of the Chekov's Repulsor Blast that they defeated him. I like to think Whiplash's suit handled the fight so well because it was specifically designed to battle people in Iron Man suits, while Tony's suit is more generalized and meant for fighting people who aren't in suits.

Well
HIGHLIGHT to view:
One of the actors playing a villain (Coldblood, specifically) was seen in the suit.)

As for Ant-Man, what Darkstream said about villians applies to heroes too. It's not the character that' s boring, it's how he's written. Personally I think there's a lot of meat on the Ant-Man bone.

-Genius level scientist who has made extreme breakthroughs in the fields of artificial intelligence, robotics, entomology and most importantly physics. It'd be really fun to see him in a room with Stark and Banner.
-He can shrink down, while retaining the strength and speed of a fullsize person. In addition, this can allow for some "Honey I shrunk the kids" style alien landscapes to help give the movie a unique feel.
-He can grow to enormous size, increasing his strength to levels that only characters like Hulk and Thor can really compete with
-He can communicate and control insects, which is especially handy when you're now smaller than an insect
-Quite possibly would be the first superhero duo to be make into a movie, since Wasp really isn't his sidekick: she's his partner. Plus you wouldn't have to shoe-horn in the love story like so many other movies do: you can start them off already in a relationship even. icon-fire.gif

So long as they leave the "Hank Pym is crazy" and the wifebeating stuff out, I would adore an Ant-Man movie. He's just a fun character and his power set is really unique.

Nah, marvel wussed out of doing alchoholic Tony. I doubt they'd do spousal abuse Pym. I especially doubt Disney would let them if they wanted to.

But as far as "only interesting thing" one thing I forgot is that he built Ultron, who is a fantastic Avengers villain.

Ultron in turn built Vision, who is a pretty beloved member of the Avengers.

Except NO writer, imho, has EVER made him not a complete bore and who is almost completely useless. About the only "good" thing he's ever done was make Ultron who became one of the iconic Avenger villains. Not even EMH has made him a good character to me. Even Mandarin with all his various interpretations tends to be interesting in at least some of them and has enjoyable moments. He might be a plot device most the time but he's a memorable plot device. The only thing people ever remember Hank Pym for is one over-exaggerated panel that made him a wife beater to the point that its become almost common knowledge, as much of a misconception that it is, that he is an abusive crazy wifebeater. I don't think he's ever going to over come that no matter how good a writer you put on him.

Pym has done a lot of interesting things, people simply remember his mental breakdown over everything else (btw, Reed is shown in comics hitting his family more often than the single time Hank hit Janet, which occurred during a mental breakdown, so why is it he's considered this amazing family man and Hank is always called a wife-beater?)

Hank really just needs to be portrayed how he's always come across. He's a mad scientist trying desperately to be a hero, instead of a villain.

Becuase Reed has done Fantastic things rather then just "interesting" things, which end up more memorable. If Hank had memorable moments other then that, maybe people would remember him for them instead.

Is that where he tried feeding Janet to bugs? I tried to ignore Ultimates as a whole. Besides I figure Ultimates is the universe where everyone are bungholes, anyway.


Tried feeding Janet to his Ants after spraying her with Insecticide while she was shrunk down. Also a later conversation between other teammates reveals Hank had been abusing Janet since College.

...and then Blob bit her head off.


Ah Ultimates. "We need a way to top Hank once hitting his wife while out of his mind guys, I KNOW! WE'LL MAKE IT SO HE'S ABUSIVE, MONSTEROUS, AND MURDEROUS!" And people wonder why I'm hoping Reed and his Children win?

The whole Ultimates Universe needs an enema.


It got one...that completely changed up the status quo so much that familiar faces just...don't exist anymore.

Ironbite-and then they killed off Spider-Man.

Thankfully, the Marvel movie series seems to have just taken the best from the Ultimates and ignored everything else.

Did some digging on Coldblood, since this is the first I've heard of him being in the film. Not much to the guy, nor is he a regular Iron Man villain (Indeed, he seems to have never crossed paths with Tony), but if the movie is about Extremis and have a potential military angle with Tony's designs...and turns out he was a member of S.H.I.E.L.D. too.

Huh. He actually would make sense for a film like this.

In a world where China already controls a lot of the world through business, 'old Mandy might be a "little" too on the nose, but I don't care. He's the hugging Mandarin and needs to be in an Iron Man movie. Make him a business man, have his mission be about turning the world upside down to create a new world order ruled by him out of China and his corporation. Make him be a sly player like the Anti-Christ has been portrayed in fiction; make him Tony's Moriarty. ANYTHING. Not unreasonable.

Or have him wear the rings that used to power a dragon's space ship. I don't give a hug, but Marvel has done well with these moving pictures, the Mandarin deserves a chance.

If you want to know more about Hank Pym and his characterization, I urge you to read Mighty Avengers #21-31. Dan Slott made great strides in making him more than just the guy who hit his wife and made Ultron.

But in the current, digitized world, trivial information is accumulating every second, preserved in all its triteness. Never fading, always accessible. Rumors about petty issues, misinterpretations, slander... All this junk data preserved in an unfiltered state, growing at an alarming rate. It will only slow down social progress, reduce the rate of evolution. You seem to think that our plan is one of censorship. What we propose to do is not to control content, but to create context.
