What's your favorite Paleolithic megafauna?

@  TM2-Megatron : (14 October 2019 - 10:06 PM)

Together with the Rhino G1 sets, probably the most expensive DVDs I ever bought

@  TM2-Megatron : (14 October 2019 - 10:01 PM)

I've still got the age-old Rhino sets

@  Telly : (14 October 2019 - 09:09 PM)

i didnt find that at any of the ones around here, so i had to settle for seasons 1 and 2 of duckman for $3

@  Steevy Maximus : (14 October 2019 - 07:45 PM)

Heck, I got the season 2/3 set for $3 (?) from a Dollar General discount bin :p

@  TM2-Megatron : (14 October 2019 - 07:29 PM)

The series is pretty cheap on DVD, too, which at least will work internet or no. The complete series set seems to be OOP, but there's a Season 1 set as well as a combined 2 & 3 set.

@  wonko the sane? : (14 October 2019 - 06:10 PM)

Woot! Beast wars!

He dubbed the peoples that saw him as bad news cannibals and savages before enslaving and wiping them out too.

@  wonko the sane? : (14 October 2019 - 01:40 PM)

And if they had been unfriendly: he would have simply slaughtered them with diseases they couldn't fight, and technology they couldn't match until they as a people did not exist. There's something about european backgrounds that drive us to exploit.

@  Rycochet : (14 October 2019 - 11:02 AM)

He described the peoples he encountered as some of the most friendly and giving in the world, so naturally, he ate all their food, enslaved them and put them to work looking for gold that did not exist, until they as a people did not exist.

@  Paladin : (14 October 2019 - 09:57 AM)

He said the world was round-o! (He said the world was round-o!) He said it could be found-o! (He said it could be found-o!) That hypothetical, calculated, son-of-a-gun, Columbo! (That hypothetical, calculated, son-of-a-gun, Columbo!)

How often do people actually celebrate Columbus or the Pilgrims? Usually it just feels like celebrating the first break in the school year and a nice dinner with the family.

Hey, everyone. Come together to enjoy this national holiday made to celebrate a mass-murderer who never set foot in the USA. What fun!

@  Otaku : (07 October 2019 - 11:26 AM)

@Bass X0 Letting myself comment to say "That's a good one!" and ask "Would a megalodon be a good fit for Megatron?"

@  Benbot : (07 October 2019 - 07:59 AM)

Ohhh good one

@  Bass X0 : (07 October 2019 - 07:39 AM)

I now want a Decepticon shark called Megalotron.

@  TriBlurr : (06 October 2019 - 05:47 PM)

Gives them time to screw up the color of his hands. :p

@  TheMightyMol... : (06 October 2019 - 12:33 PM)

His bulk is too great to teleport across such distances.

@  Sabrblade : (06 October 2019 - 11:09 AM)

Cuz it'll take that long to mass produce.

@  Darth Gonzo : (06 October 2019 - 10:47 AM)

Why is Unicron coming in 2021 and not 2020?

@  wonko the sane? : (06 October 2019 - 06:47 AM)

Shut up rattrap.

That's... a lot.

Did BotCon charge that much?

Wrong forum.

 

 

 

No.. it's a direct qestion and direct response to a previous post directly related to Power Rangers.

Well, I think Power Morphicon is kind of in a weird area. They are more like the old BotCon before it was officially licensed. FunPub era could cost $300-$400 for not attending and that was mostly the figures you were paying for the boxset. I was too young during the old BotCon days, but this could have been close to what it would cost to do a non attending package in today's prices for them (if they did it).

I can be completely wrong with this as I'm not fully knowledgeable with how it used to run, costs, etc.

IF Hasbro does indeed buy Power Rangers in full once the contracts allow, I can see them more or less putting a stop to Morphicon & folding the Rangers into HasCon with everything else.

See I don't think Hasbro would even bother to shut them down. Sure they'll just fold Power Rangers into HasCon, but I can foresee Morphicon lingering just as TFCon keeps going strong despite never being the official convention.

Do we know how GoGo is going to handle this? It started off as a flashback to current BOOM continuity but it won't really make sense for Drakkon to be assaulting them twice in the same timeline.

Just noticed this was put up on YT a few days ago; a behind the scenes video of the Lord Drakkon teaser video:

 

 

I've got to say, I'm really impressed with the attention to detail in the creation of some of the old props... Lord Zedd and Rita's staffs, as well as the broken morpher and weapons on display in the throne room. I'd watch the heck out of a Lord Drakkon Netflix series that gives some more history on this alternate world he comes from and how all this came about. Although I don't think I originally watched Power Rangers much beyond Zeo's end, it seems like the Lord Drakkon stuff is perfectly crafted to appeal to the nostalgia of people my age who grew up watching MMPR's 3 seasons.

 

Are the Yellow and Red costumed characters also present supposed to be Rangers, or just minions in armor made in the style of the outfits from Drakkon's past?

I'd go for such a series as long as its tone wasn't too far darker than the likes of Time Force and RPM (when they weren't being balanced out by all their moments of levity). I don't need an uber-grimdark Power Rangers series with graphic violence or swearing.

 

The current Voltron series probably hits just the right sweet spot of how (for lack of a better descriptor) "dark and serious" a show related to a children's toy brand can and should be without coming off as either feeling too miserable or attempting to be "faux mature".

 

Smart writing is the key.

I think the concept of being educated and being able to educate is something that more people need more of in their lives.

No, we don't all know everything but we should spread and share that what we do know.

If I'm consistently misspelling a word, I would want and expect people to correct me as should I imagine all decent people who know the value of good literacy.

Its just arrogant laziness to know you're spelling a word incorrectly and not correct yourself or ignore the advice when people do tell you how to spell a word correctly.

Aren't they all tied to the Morphing Grid in a very small way. Like they spread out they powers to it's barest potential.

So, for all their armored, military looks, they're no more powerful than the average footsoldier enemy (e.g. - Putties, Cogs, etc.)?

Went back and looked it up and I was right. All the sentries have the barest amount of the Morphin Grid enhancing their armors through Drakkon's possession of the Power Coins other than Blue which is is why there aren't any Triceratops Sentries.

Issue 13 shows Drakkon revoking a battalion General's use of the yellow coin and giving it to someone else.. but makes no mention of the others.   When Billy turns off the other coins and drains Drakkon's powers a few issues later, the mastadon sentries retreat still wearing their armor.
