Bold of you all to assume we won't wipe ourselves out in 50 years.

@  Benbot : (22 January 2020 - 04:27 PM)

There will be no UBI, people will just live in a ditch while they celebrate owning the libs.

@  Rycochet : (22 January 2020 - 03:24 PM)

In 50 years, retail will be dead because all stores are staffless fully automated operations controlled by Amazon. The UBI will be less than a fifth of what it actually costs to live after two decades of cuts and.a steadfast refusal to match inflation.

@  Maximus Ambus : (22 January 2020 - 02:55 PM)

In fifty years retail will be a thing of the past through robots, printers and Universal Basic Income.

@  Rodimus Supreme : (21 January 2020 - 11:16 AM)

Big retailers just don't want money anymore, so let's not give them any,

@  Tm_Silverclaw : (20 January 2020 - 10:00 AM)

Walmart just needs to go bankrupt already.

@  ThunderWear : (20 January 2020 - 07:19 AM)

They didn't put the 35th anniversary stuff back out until after new year. I'm no retail expert, but I feel like having stock on the shelf is better than the back. Especially toys at christmas time.

@  ThunderWear : (20 January 2020 - 07:18 AM)

Yeah, my local walmart took away the 35th anniversary endcap weeks before Christmas and left the Transformer section empty well past Christmas.

@  TheMightyMol... : (20 January 2020 - 04:44 AM)

Mine only has the 35th Anniversary Voyagers. A whole lot of them.

@  Telly : (19 January 2020 - 11:35 PM)

just be happy your walmart even stocks voyagers. mine doesnt

@  Steevy Maximus : (19 January 2020 - 08:53 PM)

I was using my account on another comptuer, and oddly it seemed to default to $US rather than converting it.

@  TM2-Megatron : (18 January 2020 - 02:02 PM)

You should be able to set eBay to display in your local currency, although personally I like to know the actual currency the item is listed in so I know if I need to account for forex fees or not

@  Trpodeca : (18 January 2020 - 06:34 AM)

I'd also like to take the opportunity to say I despise Ebay for showing the list prices in US money.

@  Trpodeca : (18 January 2020 - 06:23 AM)

Well there is an overpriced limited edition, but I don't want to pay that much money for it.

@  Trpodeca : (18 January 2020 - 06:21 AM)

Well great. The one Usagi Yojimbo volume I don't have and it's out of stock.

@  Rycochet : (17 January 2020 - 06:15 PM)

I both love and hate that the Alien franchise seems to have had more luck finding a niche as a line of children's toys than it has at producing worthwhile films.

@  Donocropolis : (17 January 2020 - 06:35 AM)

I've seen them on the shelves at Walmart. They're pretty great looking retro Aliens toys. https://www.walmart....-Vary/934039489

@  fourteenwings : (17 January 2020 - 01:11 AM)

IIRC somebody on here mentioned an unbranded Alien toy a couple of weeks ago? It seems like it was actually part of a collection for the Alien movie series by Lanard. Mattel's making some stuff too.

The Collector Club is dead. Seems like it all came down shortly after New Year

@  ThunderWear : (13 January 2020 - 11:06 PM)

I can't get to the collector club website. anyone else? I was literally going to download all the fiction to finish reading.

I hope the stockpiled nuclear weapons of the US and Russia are accounted for then.

@  Nevermore : (12 January 2020 - 12:22 PM)

Geez. 1760 (!) bombs from World War II that had not detonated and were still armed have been found. That's only the numbers for the federal state of Germany I live in, and only for the first three quarters of 2019. For all of 2018, the total number was 2811 (!!) bombs.

@  CVReynolds : (11 January 2020 - 11:05 PM)

I've been wanting a Tarantulas that turns into a more realistic tarantula for a long time. Maybe Takara will someday do a Masterpiece, which would be neat. But I really want to see a modernized look like in the IDW comics.

@  Tm_Silverclaw : (11 January 2020 - 09:43 PM)

We need more Waspinators.. and rattraps.

@  Ashley : (11 January 2020 - 07:09 PM)

I'm on board with that

@  Dekafox : (11 January 2020 - 06:17 PM)

What I'm hearing is we need Cyberverse Waspinator

@  NotVeryKnightly : (10 January 2020 - 01:27 AM)

He's appeared across more branding changes than Waspinator, so maybe it's more the other way around.

@  Ashley : (10 January 2020 - 12:01 AM)

is C3PO the Waspinator of Star Wars? he'll live forever, because it's funny for him to suffer

@  Sabrblade : (09 January 2020 - 11:52 PM)

He's still waiting for them to be funny.

@  ▲ndrusi : (09 January 2020 - 10:35 PM)

Why?

@  Maximus Ambus : (09 January 2020 - 04:02 PM)

@  fourteenwings : (09 January 2020 - 11:37 AM)

I mean, it is easier to protect HDDs, and you can retransfer the data over and over forever?

@  NotVeryKnightly : (09 January 2020 - 10:45 AM)

Not in this comparison. He's making his own files, so they're (presumably) not restricted by DRM, so he can copy them as many times as he wants. It's potentially more reliable in the long term than hoping the specific copies you originally bought never accrue any damage for the rest of your life.

@  Echowarrior : (09 January 2020 - 10:44 AM)

I prefer physical copies too. Easier to protect something physical and tangible.

@  Maximus Ambus : (09 January 2020 - 09:55 AM)

I prefer having physical copies.

@  Tm_Silverclaw : (09 January 2020 - 08:56 AM)

I have plenty of physical media I turn into digital media for my plex server. Just finished ripping Ultra Seven

The problem is that the show is just SO dull. I mean, I understand these shows have formulas to them, but this is taking that to the extreme.
This is exactly how I felt when rewatching seaosn 1 back in 2010. It was nowhere near as engaging as I found it to be back when I was little. Not even nostalgia was enough to get me as invested in it as I used to be.

Still, as others have said, the "Green With Evil" five-parter did step up the game for this show, so you'll have to see it for yourself to decide how you feel about it.

QUOTE(Kalidor @ Aug 6 2012, 12:08 PM) <{POST_SNAPBACK}>
The random stock footage from JuuRangers (or whatever) doesn't help. Here's the run down

- Some nonsensical event or situation occurs at the local juice bard/gym
- Rita mocks them for their stupid event and decides this is the perfect time to take over the world
- bullies Finster into making 'the perfect monster' for whatever non-situation exists
- monster gets sent to a random dump or quarry in some stock footage.
- idiot robot freaks out and tells them to go there
- stock footage power rangers defeat the monster, it grows big, they call the zords and defeat it again
- Rita grates on about how her plans have been ruined
- The finish whatever nonsense they were doing at the juice bar

That's not even taking into account the Bulk and Skull shenanigans... this is EVERY EPISODE. There's literally no point to anything anyone does.

How this show ever got popular is beyond me.
I guess it's because there wasn't really anything that much like it before back then, and so the U.S. just ate it up.

But, don't go dissing Bulk and Skull, as they remain the best thing about season 1. icon-fire.gif

QUOTE(Kalidor @ Aug 6 2012, 12:08 PM) <{POST_SNAPBACK}>
On the other hand, someone pointed me towards the JuuRangers show and that's actually not too terrible. But I've only watched a few episodes of that.

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.

I think it might well be a case of 'You had to be there'. I was born in 1986 and remember growing up with MMPR-early Turbo. What I saw in the show and the memories I have of enjoying it is something I don't think can be transfered in the exact same way as the older ones here who grew up with the G1 Transformers cartoon and comics.

The formula starts to break down around the start of season two, as we're introduced to more complex plots with higher stakes and one of the most menacing villains that was on Saturday morning television at the time.

But the fully serialized "In Space" season is the best in my opinion.


Time Force and Lightspeed Rescue deserve some love, too.

The former proved that smart writers could pull off "dark" even in a kids' series, while the latter had some surprisingly intelligent episodes in the mix.

Well, okay, technically In Space was my first series, but they showed MMPR season 1 constantly in the "Power Playback" reruns at the same time, and I watched/enjoyed those just as much as the In Space episodes. In fact, the second Power Rangers episode I ever watched was a MMPR season 1 episode (it was either episode 1 or episode 4, as it had a Megazord vs. Goldar fight); the first being the In Space crossover with the Ninja Turtles.

IMHO, the era of In Space through Time Force was when the show was at its highest level of writing, with all four of those series being exceptionally good in a consecutive flow. It was Wild Force that felt a bit like a step down. Don't get me wrong, I'm one of those who LIKES Wild Force, but I will admit that the preceding four series were better than it was.

Since that era, the show has never reached the same level of quality while keeping it after one or two series. Dino Thunder was big improvement over Ninja Storm, then SPD took things to an even greater level, then it fell back down again with Mystic Force, and kinda stayed down at that level until RPM took things back up a few notches.

Then came MMPR 2010. icon-kicker.gif And now we got Samurai and Super Samurai. icon-primal.gif

I was born in 84 so I think I was pretty close to the target demographic when the show started, and I remember when it first came out. I remember seeing the commercials for it and thinking it looked like a really terrible live action Voltron. The show was hot garbage. Always has been.
I finally got rid of that big white box.

Wild Force is kinda the first of the Disney series, its sorta half and half, iirc. If so, that might explain the 'downgrade'.

Samurai is the result of Saban rushing a product out to fill their contract with Nick. They've admitted that roundaboutly, in there comments about how Megaforce has had much more devolpment time. So I think the next series should be a better measurement for if Saban still has it, since Samurai is their first series in a while, and even Disney's first true series, Ninja Storm, wasn't great either (though I like it alot) but got better with Dino Thunder and SPD was also really good for all its flaws.

I couldn't make it through the first episode of Wild Force; I found the set-up rather contrived (a pilot goes missing during a training run and nobody bothers to ask questions?), and that just bugged me too much to focus on anything.

It wasn't until after the re-runs started airing on ABC Family that I even began to really watch anything.

Not just "kinda", it was very much the first Disney era series, as it was made under their authority, but with the same studio and production crew as the previous Saban-made ones. Though, what happened was that Disney allowed the first half to air on Fox, while the second half would air on ABC. Ninja Storm was the second of the Disney series, but the first to be relocated to New Zealand (where Power Rangers is ironically banned from airing in. Go figure).

Dont really have anything bad to say about the series but if you want to get a good laugh,check out an episode of "Dynaman" on Youtube.It was a parody of the Power Rangers that was part of the show broadcast in the 80's on the USA Network called "Night Flight".

I'm still curious how far in Kal was with that other statement, so we could tell him whether it gets better or not.
When does it get better in season 1? Back when the 2010 reversion aired, I watched all of that, and then continued watching the first season online from where the reversion left off. And, even with such multi-parters as "Green With Evil", "Island of Illusion", "The Green Candle", "Doomsday", and "Return of an Old Friend", it never got better. Out of ALL of those season 1 episodes I watched, only ONE episode ever really reached any levels of "awesome", and that was "Return of an Old Friend Part I", with Part II going back down to the same level of "okay" as the rest of the series.

I didn't get to continue watching into season 2 due to my life becoming busier at the time, but I do own the "Best of Power Rangers" DVD that contains the "White Light" two-parter, and watching that showed that that two-parter was FAR less cringeworthy than the content of season 1.


Oh, right, I keep forgetting it isn't the Time Life set he's got...

Sorry; ever since I laid eyes on that, it's like the other ceased to exist.

Yeah, no... MMPR does get better, but aside from a few multiparters, the first season is overall pretty unremarkable.

QUOTE(DrSpengler @ Aug 6 2012, 12:43 PM) <{POST_SNAPBACK}>
There's continuity between episodes, a more daring, longterm scheme from Rita and even a pretty awesomely hilarious break in the formula (after they combine into their Megazord to fight the Dragonzord, Tommy basically jumps into the cockpit and kicks them all out because HUG YEAH! TOMMY!).

Not saying it'll turn you into a fan, but you might find it more watchable.


Wasn't Dragonzord; much to my dismay at the time, it didn't appear until the fifth and final part. I think they were just fighting giant Goldar and Scorpina.

That said, I was kind of "meh" on the series up until Tommy showed up. I liked it, but none of the original five really connected with me; I think I defaulted to Jason, because he was the leader with the sword and Tyrannosaur.

Tommy was a definite game-changer; the show still had formulaic cheese, but he really added a cool factor which kept me watching far, far, far longer than I might have otherwise.

Or rather, "five overbearing and over-emotional humans", as the actual episode said. icon-waspy.gif

Yet, an even more accurate description would be "five pro-environmental, charity-obsessed goodie-goods". Makes the comparisons Tommy makes between his old MMPR team and his new team in Dino Thunder all the more amusing. icon-fire.gif

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.

Don't make me relate the tale of how I realised I was a huge nerd when I was the only one still watching it into middle school icon-screamer.gif

I couldn't make it through the first episode of Wild Force; I found the set-up rather contrived (a pilot goes missing during a training run and nobody bothers to ask questions?), and that just bugged me too much to focus on anything.

I submit to you that if suspension of disbelief for real-world situations in Power Rangers is the point of being "rather contrived", the property is probably not for you.


As is always the case with FI, suspension of disbelief does not apply to any situation which remotely involves the military.

Because yes, showing extended scenes of the military investigating the missing pilot is exactly the kind of thing you'd expect to see in Power Rangers.

What did he say? It's been a while, and I've forgotten.
