Oh my god! WFC ravage is adorable! Who's a pudgy kitty? Yes you are!

@  Maximus Ambus : (28 November 2020 - 09:50 AM)

The 86 line prevented made me reconsider a new years resolution.

And Devastator because I'm a sucker for combiners

@  unluckiness : (28 November 2020 - 04:32 AM)

Decided to stick with the main cast from 2007 and a few assorted ones here and there.

@  TheMightyMol... : (27 November 2020 - 02:02 PM)

I said I wouldn't buy a lot, now I have seven. And at least three might be on the culling pile.

I would buy the hell out a nemesis primal...

@  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

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.

@  Maximus Ambus : (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.

@  Maximus Ambus : (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)

I swear though.. The idea of "Catch up" is stupid.

@  TM2-Megatron : (14 November 2020 - 11:25 PM)

That's irritating, but it sounds par for the course with new hardware release. Within a year, there'll probably be some good stuff out there that does it all.

@  Tm_Silverclaw : (14 November 2020 - 11:23 PM)

4K/HDR switches are.. iffy.. Because most of them can't do 4K and HDR at the same time.. Or can't do 120hz... and all sorts of things the new TVs have built in, and the new consoles use...

@  TM2-Megatron : (14 November 2020 - 11:18 PM)

Maybe now that the PS5's made the whole 4K thing a little more mainstream, the hardware will start becoming more common. I know that's one of the hopes the physical media community has for the 100GB discs the PS5 is going to be using. Prior to this, they were very expensive tor replicate compared to a regular blu-ray and not used very often

@  TM2-Megatron : (14 November 2020 - 11:17 PM)

Up to now, there really haven't been a whole lot of 4K disc players to choose from... Samsung stopped making them altogether when they couldn't compete with the others, so your main choices are a few models of Panasonic or Sony

@  TM2-Megatron : (14 November 2020 - 11:14 PM)

Is there no such thing as a 4K/HDR switch yet?

@  Tm_Silverclaw : (14 November 2020 - 10:10 PM)

Which is fine.. But that still doesn't explain why they arn't putting out up to date HDMI switch boxes to get.. more money.

@  TM2-Megatron : (14 November 2020 - 09:59 PM)

My only TV with a respectable number of ports is my OLED 4K/3D, which has 4 HDMI, 2 USB 2.0s, 1 USB 3.0 and some weird proprietary thing that acts as both component and composite, depending on what you need. But it retailed for $10k when it first came out (I bought it 14 months later for less than half that). THey're going to get as many corners on less expensive sets as they can, which usually means only providing 2 HDMIs.

There is absolutely nothing wrong with either of the previous two FF movies. I love them both. All they need to do is get Reed, Sue, and Ben to return, tweak the Thing effects to look better, and cast a new Johnny.

Seriously. We don't need a damn reboot.

You might not think so, but execs will until they get a film that makes back its budget at least 4-7 times over, which Rise of the Silver Surfer failed to do.

I'd argue that Doom was a terrible interpretation and the general tone and writting of the film rather missed the sense of exploration and pulp adventure that the FF has at its best.


-ZacWilliam, they weren't the worst superhero films I've seen. I would kinda like a Reed who came across as rather smarter and more focused. And an Invisible woman that did the same. Torch and Thing were fine but I doubt you'd get either back now.

Well after turning Galactus into a giant Cloud of doom it's their own fault. Admittedly a ginormous man in Purple and a tuning fork helmet wouldn't fly much in reality but they could of done much better.

But I'm with Magnus. The FF movies were decent enough as they are. I wouldn't mind Alba being replaced or Doom getting some one new. Replacing Johnny is a must now that Evans is now cemented as Cap But I'm cool with Chiklis as the Thing and Gruffudd as Reed still.

Doom I'll willingly give you. But he's a remarkable difficult character to get right both in terms of writing, acting, and especially looks. The actor would need to wear essentially an Iron Man suit covered in a costume to effectively pull it off. Not that I'm saying it's something I wouldn't happily want to see. icon-arcee.gif

I think one of the major things that ticked everyone off in Rise of the Silver Surfer was the whole Galactus thing. It tainted everyone's opinion of the whole film.

I didn't know anything about Galactus or much about the Silver Surfer before seeing the second Fantastic Four movie, and I still thought it was completely awful. Chris Evans and Michael Chiklis tried admirably, but the script, direction, effects, Thing suit, and Jessica Alba were all just terrible.

Definitely best rebooted, with the originals ignored. Shame it can't be by Marvel themselves.

Sue and Johnny Storm can both be black, why not? I do think it's stretching a bit more if they're of two different races and adopted or half-siblings or something. Keep it simple, and hueswap both or neither.

Maybe Donald Glover can be Johnny.

He is...and he isn't. I can't defend Rise of the Silver Surfer, but to me the first FF film worked because Doom wasn't Doctor Doom, ruler of Latveria and destroyer of all who opposed him. He was Victor Von Doom, businessman and philanthropist. In what is essentially the first outing of the character, the fact he came across as "off" is to be expected. Doctor Doom has had dang near 50 years of continuity building him up (and making him fall down...I'm looking at you Wearing the Skin of my Dead Ex Girlfriend Victor) - a film only having a two and a half hour run time isn't going to do him justice.

But taking it from the perspective of Victor Von Doom, who rules a Board Room and not a Country...I find his characterization acceptable. Also I'm probably one of the few people who actually really did enjoy his initial outfit. It retained that classic feel while being more in line with - again - what a businessman would wear.


I still fondly regard The Fantastic Four as one of the better Super Hero adaptations. The Rise of the Silver Surfer...I do not.

Rise of the Silver Surfer started off having a great doom, but once he was healed by the surfer's powers he was back to being not awesome again, which is a shame, because Doom running around with Surfer Powers should have been great.

In the first movie Doom's master plan was to shoot lightning around the city. In the second movie he just wanted to surf regardless of the dying planet.

No, Doom sucked in both.

In the beginning of rise when he was moping in his castle talking to himself? That could have been great things. And the surfing itself was fine, the ignoring of the dying planet; not so much.

But yeah, losing Doom to Fox is the worst part of them keeping the license. Now him and Tony will never time travel on the big screen together and that makes me sad. And no Dr. Strange crossover. And...

I like them all because they're talented actors who fit the roles. Aisha Tyler can do just about anything, and I want a bit of Geordi Laforge in my Reed Richards.

I'm actually going to be slightly disappointed if we don't get an all black FF.

Personally, I liked the casting for the original movie except for Sue. They cast a pair of tits instead of real talent. Johnny, Reed and Ben were all fine.

I don't agree because I don't feel those actors fit at all, regardless of skin color. mostly Burton. I love the man but I don't want Reed to be an older man. I LOVE the Ultimate comics for making him younger, current status notwithstanding. They are a family but it's also an action flick. Plus he's rather short and I've never seen him hit those sharp, disconnected tones Reed would have.

I just don't think any of those fit.
