I wish they were more universal like Beast Wars, Animated or Prime and as professionally done,

@  Maximus Ambus : (28 September 2020 - 02:06 PM)

The Netflix shows are done for adults, the Generation toyline is for adults who grew up with G1.

Whatever happened to WFC Earthrise being a kids show X'D

@  wonko the sane? : (28 September 2020 - 11:43 AM)

Cool, my last tablet couldn't run it, and I stopped caring by the time I got the new one. So thanks!

@  Otaku : (28 September 2020 - 11:27 AM)

There are crossover characters, but the amount and distribution... Marvel Vs Capcom this ain't.  If @wonko the sane? my bad!

@  Otaku : (28 September 2020 - 11:21 AM)

I've been playing for *checks account* 1002 days, 23 hours.  So, by 2021, it will have been three years.  I think it takes place in its own continuity, largely inspired by G1 but borrowing from other places.

@  Otaku : (28 September 2020 - 11:19 AM)

@wonko the sane? Can only speak for Earth Wars, but so few they're easy to forget.

@  wonko the sane? : (28 September 2020 - 07:39 AM)

Didn't they already do the across universes thing in that tablet game?

@  Demovere Xeno : (28 September 2020 - 05:30 AM)

Also, make the setting an amalgamation of different Transformers series, rather than based on a specific one. Bring in things like 'Sentinel Major' as the primo Autobot jerk, and sleek car mode Vehicons as the Decepticons' basic grunt.

@  Demovere Xeno : (28 September 2020 - 05:27 AM)

KT just needs to incorporate the vehicle modes into the combat system, like Platinum did for Devastation, so they're for more than just wheeling it across the battlefield. =P

@  Demovere Xeno : (28 September 2020 - 05:25 AM)

@  NotVeryKnightly : (28 September 2020 - 01:53 AM)

Aren't TFs way more varied than Joes, as far as they'd work in gameplay? Like, Omega Supreme is vastly different from Bumblebee.

@  unluckiness : (27 September 2020 - 10:16 PM)

Hell, ripoff Super Robot Wars withTFs

@  unluckiness : (27 September 2020 - 10:16 PM)

IDK they could make something like FF tactics or Fire Emblem ripoff with Robots and i'd buy it

@  Steevy Maximus : (27 September 2020 - 09:43 PM)

See, I feel GI Joe (with it's varied cast) is a better fit for a strategy game, where as Transformers feels more suited for a shooter.

@  Maruten : (27 September 2020 - 08:28 PM)

I might give them points for making a strategy game if it's actually a good strategy game.

@  wonko the sane? : (27 September 2020 - 07:48 PM)

I mean, points for making a strategy game instead of third person shooter, but: urrrrgggg. Cyberverse.

@  wonko the sane? : (27 September 2020 - 07:47 PM)

A transformers game for the switch? *checks* Urrrggg... cyberverse...

@  Steevy Maximus : (27 September 2020 - 06:28 PM)

October will be a big month for Hasbro fans: Zoids, GI Joe AND Transformers all have brand new console games. All on the Switch at that!

@  wonko the sane? : (27 September 2020 - 09:04 AM)

At least in animated he was more driven than just "loyal bootlick".

@  unluckiness : (27 September 2020 - 08:29 AM)

Oof, That's a huge downgrade

@  Maximus Ambus : (27 September 2020 - 02:35 AM)

After rewatching Animated Sound and Fury, in my head canon Titans Return Soundwave is that Soundwave.

@  wonko the sane? : (26 September 2020 - 04:09 PM)

On an unrelated note: I just got the BBTS email about kingdom pre-orders... and even the stuff I don't want I'm perfectly willing to get if it means I can have the rest of it.

@  wonko the sane? : (26 September 2020 - 04:08 PM)

It's digimon. So first one, then the other.

@  TheMightyMol... : (26 September 2020 - 12:53 PM)

50/50 odds, it's either a helicopter with limbs, or a scantily-clad human with heli blades on their back. If female, 90% odds on the second one.

@  NotVeryKnightly : (26 September 2020 - 12:39 PM)

I read that as "Helicoptermon" and wondered what kind of Digimon that was.

@  Bass X0 : (26 September 2020 - 12:35 PM)

@  Maximus Ambus : (25 September 2020 - 11:58 PM)

@  TheMightyMol... : (24 September 2020 - 01:00 PM)

And then Knockout was in the wall again.

@  Sabrblade : (24 September 2020 - 12:53 PM)

Knockout: "Ooh, sorry, Lord Megatron. The correct word was... 'Decepticon'."

@  -LittleAutob... : (24 September 2020 - 11:15 AM)

It's probably been mentioned in here already, but I just heard that a Legacy Dragonzord is coming in 2014.

Awesome.

Also, the MegaBloks 20th Anniversary set works great with the Legacy Megazord.

It's funny watching the original series as an adult. The transition between the old and new Black, Yellow, and Red Rangers is so ham-fisted and stilted, I can't believe I didn't see the change coming when I was younger.

Although, I never really cared for or followed MMPR after it so I guess it did have some affect on me back then.

In other news, I finally caved and got that Bandai Tamashii Nations Red Ranger action figure. It's too bad that Comic Con didn't do exclusive unhelmeted heads instead of just the stands.

Looking at the clock, I got less than five minutes left to post this.

Today, August 28, 2013, marks the official 20th birthday of the Power Rangers series. On August 28, 1993, "Day of the Dumpster" aired for the first time on Fox Kids.

To celebrate, Shout! Factory posted the following videos:

Amit Bhamik, former Ranger writer, has posted his original story outline for Power Rangers Samurai.

While it definitely contains a number of overt Shinkenger elements, he also provides well thought out biographies for the entire cast of heroes AND villains, along with a few storytelling angles that would've kept viewers of all ages interested.

http://amitbhaumik.t...amurai-proposal

Definitely a worthwhile read and really makes me regret we didn't get anything close to this good.

That's actually close to how I wanted Bulk to be included into Samurai in the first place. When I first heard that he would be returning for this series, I was hoping he'd sort of be like the Alpha to the Ranger's mentor, knowing who the Rangers were and assisting them in their HQ while bumbling things along the way.

Sadly, though, he was only in scenes that barely included main cast, as though he and Spike were the stars of their own show that got forced into this show during the editing stage. icon-primal.gif

He and Spike became my main reason for watching both Samurai and Super Samurai, and he remains the main reason for why I like the Super Samurai Christmas special (despite how utterly stupid the special's premise was). Seeing Bulk, Spike, and Mentor Ji sitting together in the living room of the Shiba House exchanging memories of past events with other was a joy for me to watch. icon-ironhide.gif

Though, if I were in charge of the New Saban era series, I'd have omitted Bulk and Spike from Samurai/Super Samurai and instead saved them for Megaforce. Instead of having some guy named Ernie who's not the Ernie run the cafe the Rangers hang out in, I'd have Bulk be the one to run it instead, and would have had him name the place after the real Ernie from MMPR. That way, Bulk would have a job that's familiar to him (running a cafe like he did in Lost Galaxy and "Forever Red") and would let him interact with the Rangers as a familiar character to the audience, instead of the new Ernie we got now who (despite being credited in the opening credits) has barely had any kind of real presence on this show.

Oh, and, speaking of Megaforce, new episodes resume this Saturday at 1pm on Nick.

I like it. icon-ironhide.gif It has many elements of great action/adventure series from the 90s without becoming too grim (that 'Hexagon' idea we saw before was nice too, but IMO it seemed kind of dark for Power Rangers). I also like the idea of making the 'Battlizer' armor a separate Ranger; maybe explain its similar appearance as Mark still having lingering nostalgia for the Red Samurai gear.

Also, this would've been a step closer to having a full-time, female Red Ranger! icon-waspy.gif

I'm a bit iffy about Bulk having ancient Ranger lineage - seems a bit contrived, given everything that he's been through before - but in that setup, I get that it wouldn't let his son become the Gold Ranger otherwise... unless they tie that into the subplot of a non-Ozawa becoming a Ranger, maybe in the form of having Mark be inspired by his tenacity. It'd also make a nice 180 of the classic comic relief's role: in the past the Rangers eventually began to inspire Bulk and Skull to do good, and now we have Bulk's son doing the same for a Ranger!

I was prepared to hate on this after Amit's overly fanfic-y Hexagon pitch, but this is really the show we should have gotten. Amit's approach fixes what I felt were Samurai's fatal flaws: The Rangers had poorly-defined motivations that mostly boiled down to "This is what the character did in Shinkenger, but we're not going to explain why", and Bulk had even less reason to be there than ever before.

Not sure if Amit realized the unfortunate implications of Bulk's son looking exactly like his best friend though... Actually making him Skull's son is probably the only improvement that the show made.

Hate to go all militant fanboy, but it might be time for PR to get a new showrunner. So far, we've had a poor Shinkenger adaptation, what's so far looking like a poor MMPR adaptation, and a bunch of former castmembers being alienated over the show's anniversary, and it just feels like the people in charge treat the show as something built on an assembly line, when there are cool things you can still do with it.
