Wonderful audio separation and balance.

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)

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

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

@  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)

New level of rarity I guess, which include some fan-favorite cards they don't like to reprint often.

I just dislike how they had to majorly retcon for there to be any natives at all on Mirrodin, and how hard creative took a dump on poor Slobad and Glissa. The New Phyrexia/Mirrodin Pure thing being a marketing lie is obnoxious but nothing that unexpected or outrageous.

Just got back from the prerelease. Only won about 5 out of 11 games but for me that's not too bad. Running a tri color deck didn't help as it usually was not giving me the one type of mana for the cards in my hand. And the one card I wanted to play I only got the chance to cast once and was countered hard. But come on who doesn't want to see this happy smiling.....

I'll be first to admit I'm not the greatest MtG player and it's always been more about the fiction behind the cards rather than the game itself that kept me playing. So when todays spoiler previews for commander came I was beyond happy to see a Weatherlight crew member make a comeback with new artwork.

Now that vehicles are a thing though can I get a new version of the Weatherlight please :love

So the Aether Revolt Prerelease is this weekend. My pulls were a bit lackluster this time. Pulled the Green and White Expertise cards, along with a Glint-Sleeve Siphoner, and Baral, Chief of Compliance out of my AER packs and Marionette Master and Multiform Wonder from the two Kaladesh packs. Foil Promo was Disallow.

 

I went to the afternoon tournament since I had all weekend off but was a pretty small turnout. Only about 17 or so, so I was the odd guy out round one unfortunately. But I did about my norm. Since I got mostly Black and Blue that's what I ran and had some luck with some stall and Artifact damage. Getting a couple Consulate Turrets out saved my butt in round 3

Round One: Odd man out

Round Two :1-2

Round Three: 2-0

Round Four: 0-2.

 

No extra prizes for me but at least I got some wins in..

So amid all the video game Hype Magic announced a good slate of whats to come in the next year leading into the 25th Anniversary
 
So Amonkhet's second set Hour of Devastation is coming in Mid July with the prerelease tourneys the weekend of July 8th Nicol Bolas confirmed as a  Planeswalker if we didn't already think it wasn't going to happen. But he's one of the two featured Planeswalker in the PW Decks

 

In release Order

 

Commander 2017 -  August 2017

 

Ixalan - September 2017

 

Merfolk vs. Goblins Duel Deck set - November 2017

 

Iconic Masters set- November 2017

 

Explorers of Ixalan -November 2017

 

From the Vault: Transform - November 2017

 

UNSTABLE - December 2017

 

Rivals of Ixalan - January 2018

 

Masters 25 - March 2018

 

Dominaria - April 2018

 

Magic 2019 Core Set - July 2018

 

So we seem to be mixing up the sets again over the two block set they have done lately. Ixalan will have two large sets and one small set like the old three block rotation. They have said we won't necessarily stay on a Plane for any certain amount of sets anymore and will follow however the story they want to tell pulls. This also allows them to brake up the Gatewatch a bit more and possibly feature other New and returning Planeswalkers. The amount of stuff between November and January is crazy. Crazy enough for another UN Joke set. :D Plus the return to Dominaria is interesting. Not sure I've been that into it since the Invasion cycle but of course it's a good nod to for the 25th anniversary.

Both Favorites of mine too. It's really when WotC started a heavy push into the lore it seems. I still have the Tempest short story anthology book. And Urza is my Jedi's name on SW:TOR, as well as a few Pokemon Trainers over the years.I've really been on a big Magic kick the last couple years. Especially with Amonkhet and the Egyptian like theme it has going.I think I've bought more Amonkhet than any set in the last decade.

Heck you realize we are getting a new set practically every two months just with the actual expansions. Usually we've gotten a break between Sept/Oct and January But I think they are trying to push out Ixalan so they can set up Dominaria as the 25th anniversary block. It might be a bit more spaced out between Rivals of Ixalan and Dominaria but it's crazy to me how rapid fire things are in the coming year.

    Hello, world

So, it's been announced that Cryptic Studios (Champions Online, Star Trek Online, Neverwinter MMO) is working on an MMO based on M:tG.

 

I await further news with baited breath.  There's real potential there, but it could turn sour really quickly.  It really depends on how well they incorporate the feel and trappings of the M:tG universe.  If it's just another generic fantasy MMO that name drops iconic M:tG elements, than no deal. 

 

Ideally, I'd very much like if it would ape the original Guild Wars a bit, factoring in its deep skill/spell gathering system and "deckbuilding" toolkit.  Addictive and meaningful collecting mechanics I feel are key to achieving some of M:tG's appeal and identity.  Don't be so faithful that it just becomes M:tGO with avatars and a worldmap, though.

 

It would be very cool though if it were expansive enough to let you explore the card game's iconic settings, especially the more exotic ones like Ravnica, Zendikar, or even Kamigawa. 

 

So, tentatively excited.
