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.

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.

@  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)

The only one I'm really bothered by is Rimmer, since it doesn't really make much sense to have an aging hologram. However, Lister has really just got a bit fat and weathered looking, which given that he's a disgusting, lazy slob, works for me. The Cat's more or less the same thanks to his actor having kept in better shape over the years, and Kryten is wearing a mask which covers most of the most notable signs of aging on him.

Really, I'm still hopeful for the series, and it can't be any worse than the last full series, and dispute it's quite prominant faults Back to Earth wasn't, but I think the problem really is that it's forgotten what its supposed to be making jokes at, and needs to start parodying more modern Sci Fi. The cast are still great comedic actors, they really just need at least good, more original, material to work with.

That really was a bad trailer though.

I was reading about this on another forum and someone came up with a possible explanation for Rimmer aging: Rimmer was originally restored as a hologram as a companion for Lister, to keep him sane, it's possible that his he is programmed to age along with Lister.

Looking forward to the new series, hoping it will be good.

I always figured that myself for rimmer. I mean, they "technically" hate each other... so seeing the guy you hate never age, get fat, bald... that's a major kick in the teeth. And its the kind that sneaks up on you too. You just look in the mirror one day: see a fat bastard glaring back, then you look at your room mate: still 25, fit, good skin and teeth.

Like most things, this has potential. Being a mad red dwarf fan, I will watch it regardless. I got enough time to finish my current run through anyway. Second half of series 4, here I come.

Yeah, you're right, how'd I forget that? I could probably quote half that episode now that I think about it infact.

Damnit, I really need to rewatch the old series again. Sadly it's one of only a handful of pieces of fiction I like that my fianc?e doesn't, and finding enough time alone to watch more than an episode or two a week just isn't going to happen, especially when it has a small mountain of games to compete with.

Will this at least be building to some kind of conclusion? After the massive cliffhanger the last series ended on and the constant failed attempts to budget a movie, I'd really welcome there actually being an end point to the story. Especially after the last two BBC series weren't their greatest stuff.

They die, alone and in space, millions of years from earth. This was a foregone conclusion when everyone decided that it was more important to stay awake during the trip than actually seeing the end of the journey.

The point of the show isn't making it to the end, its seeing how they cope during an unending voyage.

I kind of hope it ends with a bit of a mix of the Better than Life and Last Human novels.

They find Earth; light years away from where it should be, only to learn humanity turned it into a giant rubbish dump, covering it in trash until an eruption of garbage gas farted it out of orbit.

Bring back Kachanski, make Lister king of the giant Cockroaches, let Rimmer properly go out as a hero, and let the journey end on a hopeful but slightly bittersweet note. I'd even be happy to get 'not quite Ace' Rimmer junior in it.

I really want to catch up with the other Cats before the show ends though.

I always figured the three million years thing was false data from faulty systems.
They found derelicts of ships and other facilities on planets proving time had passed but Kryten and postal pods should have shut down long ago.

I wouldn't be too worried. I was lucky enough to be at the filming for one of the eps, and it was brilliant, definitely felt a lot like series 3/4 in vibe. I don't think that trailer does it justice at all.

They do make constant mention of Holly's senility throughout the series. Why can't the time estimate be part of that?

Pro three million years:
- the Cat's species evolved
- the radiation had a half life of three million years
- they do refer to being three million years in deep space.
- I suppose stasis could also be used for storage to keep food and chemicals fresh

Against three million years
- Kryten was built in the twenty fourth century and mentions being online for thousands of years on the Nova 5 thinking he was serving human women.
- three million years in deep space they find other ships from earth in less then two, though they did possess superior FTL technology.
- the holoship
- the humans the psirens killed (there's no logic to them making that up).
- supplies on wrecks and derelicts.

That's the thing, Red Dwarf itself seems to be 3 million years old, but everything they encounter definitely appears much younger.

I think there's two ways of reconciling the contradiction, either weird space stuff was encountered during the trip that sent them back in time, not an unreasonable possibility given how much they stumble upon after turning around and heading for home.

Or, it's a side effect of breaking the speed of light in a thoroughly impossible manner. They certainly were experiencing weird time anomalies while at FTL after all.

Or the red dwarf is just hitting the leading edge of the last human colonization and exploration wave before the species died out. That would be hundreds of thousands, to millions of years in the future (Relative to the initial launching of the dwarf.) anyway.
