A Titan would have more room for other toys to hang out, assuming one has the table space for it.

@  Darth Gonzo : (24 February 2020 - 03:32 PM)

Play wise which would be better a Commander Class Aircraft Carrier Mode Broadside or a Titan Class Aircraft Carrier Mode Broadside?

@  PlutoniumBoss : (24 February 2020 - 01:53 PM)

I'd be interested in a deluxe or voyager Fort Max in Armada flashback red-and-green.

@  TheMightyMol... : (24 February 2020 - 10:49 AM)

I'd honestly be more interested in Commander-class Scorponok and Fort Max. I don't have the space for Titans.

@  Maximus Ambus : (24 February 2020 - 10:44 AM)

Make Commander class city bots to annoy collectors too

@  TheMightyMol... : (24 February 2020 - 10:43 AM)

Make two Broadsides. One Voyager-sized that only turns into a jet, and one Titan-sized that only turns into an aircraft carrier. Piss off everyone on both sides of the scale.

@  Rodimus Supreme : (24 February 2020 - 10:41 AM)

Since they seem to also go by the oh-so holy cartoon scale thing, he'd probably be a Commander Class figure.

@  wonko the sane? : (24 February 2020 - 10:34 AM)

Broadside is an aircraft carrier. He should probably be metroplex sized.

@  Rodimus Supreme : (24 February 2020 - 10:21 AM)

Broadside's more of a Commander Class.

@  Darth Gonzo : (24 February 2020 - 04:47 AM)

I think Broadside should be the next Titan Class figure.

@  wonko the sane? : (23 February 2020 - 09:38 PM)

I tan nicely! But also have a family history of cancer... so... yeah, pasty for me it is.

@  Otaku : (23 February 2020 - 04:22 PM)

I really do begin to get sunburned after about 5 minutes of direct exposure, nowadays.  Side effect of already being pasty then going on a particular medication.  Yay?

@  TheMightyMol... : (23 February 2020 - 01:36 PM)

It makes me burn. Accursed daystar.

@  wonko the sane? : (21 February 2020 - 07:02 AM)

I might need to update my software, or they face regional limitations, cause I found no evidence of either.

@  Steevy Maximus : (20 February 2020 - 10:31 PM)

DUDE! Starcom and COPS are on Tubi too!

@  ▲ndrusi : (19 February 2020 - 02:34 PM)

Or do Japan's cultural values vary depending on exactly who you're trying to shut down?

@  ▲ndrusi : (19 February 2020 - 02:33 PM)

Could it be that, perhaps, these different cultural values might lead to a different approach seeming appropriate?

@  ▲ndrusi : (19 February 2020 - 02:32 PM)

Hm. Back when we were arguing about the Legends comic, I seem to recall being repeatedly told that Japan had different cultural values than the US (and therefore anyone who had a problem with anything at all was wrong to voice that opinion ever).

@  fourteenwings : (19 February 2020 - 07:23 AM)

Plus, as much as I hate to admit it, every single anime character is built to suit the audience's tastes so they buy more merch/do other things that allow $$$ to flow in the production committees direction, so the authenticity is certainly not for representation's sake.

@  fourteenwings : (19 February 2020 - 07:18 AM)

Both those anime air at midnight and are aimed at a very specific audience in a whole other media landscape. Major projects have press releases about almost everything, and there are groups just waiting to pat anybody on the back for doing what they want (GLAAD, HRC, etc)

@  B-Fox : (19 February 2020 - 03:16 AM)

It's funny that a friggin' anime about zombie idols and an anime about a school of anthropomorphic animals can have really positive trans characters WITHOUT a press release about their inclusion in the series prior to the episodes airing or having the creators announcing it on social media and patting themselves on the back for doing a thing.

@  TriBlurr : (18 February 2020 - 10:26 PM)

Vegan meat needs bacon

@  Paladin : (18 February 2020 - 08:43 PM)

vegan meat must taste delicious. they're grass-fed and regularly exercised....

@  wonko the sane? : (18 February 2020 - 06:57 PM)

Vegans are better than kids if you don't talk to them. They'll keep the lawn trimmed anyway.

@  TheMightyMol... : (18 February 2020 - 06:02 PM)

Do you want vegans? Because that's how you get vegans.

@  CORVUS : (18 February 2020 - 04:33 PM)

Hook up your sprinkler system to a canister of healthy organic carrot-juice. The kids won't be able to get off your lawn fast enough.

The original script for Josh Trank’s version of Fantastic Four, written by Jeremy Slater is in the wild.

 

It had Galactus, Mole Man, Herbie the Robot, the Fantasticar and Doctor Doom as a Latverian dictator. It does read like a VERY expensive movie, which is supposedly what gave FOX the jitters to begin with. You can see a similar structure in portions of the script, but there are large, important subplots that were entirely excised from the final movie, and the climax is entirely different.


Yep.

Right. So we can talk about who we should cast as Dr. Doom, as long as we don't point out the longstanding issues regarding the portrayal of both his background and similar characters in media.

 

In other news, Avatar: The Last Airbender's casting wasn't offensive at all and would have been commendable if they hired people who could actually act.

 

Yes, that's clearly what I said.

 

Here is my summary of every conversation I have ever had with you because this is all you ever want to talk about.

 

Are minorities underrepresented in movies and television? Yes, of course they are.

Should Hollywood do a better job of diversifying their casts? Yes, of course they should.

Is it realistic to think Hollywood is going to go out of its way to make sure the ethnic background of every actor perfectly matches the ethnic background of every existing fictional character at the expense of established star power in their billion dollar franchises? No, it is not.

 

If you disagree, fine, but it would be awesome if you could stop implying everyone who thinks those things is a racist.

I never said that anything I've said was likely. I've said what I think SHOULD be done, and that the way casting that goes on in Hollywood is flawed and that I think "the expense" is pretty much their own fear and prejudice guiding their decisions. And the only way that's gonna ever change is if people talk about it.

 

This is a longshot, yes. It probably won't even be a consideration in my own lifetime.

 

And that's not the same as calling you, personally, a racist. I think you have different priorities and concerns about what should be done with characters. But I'm still going to push for what I think is right, and if you're gonna sarcastically dismiss what I'm saying, I'm gonna meet that with the same kind of tone and sarcasm myself.

On a side note, Fantastic Four is still $20 million shy of its budget.  That's globally speaking, not just domestic.

That's an expensive bath Fox just drew.

 

Add in marketing and I can only imagine.  I doubt Fox will be supporting Josh Trank on anything ever again.

 

 

Marketing is rarely ever actually 'part of the budget'. 

 

Usually there's a huge marketing budget and percentages of that get distributed across projects over the year. Generally there is no concern to make back marketing dollars as that money is considered 'spent' as soon as the year begins.

And you never did answer on if you were this uppity about Johnny Storm have his race changed, unless again, that race doesn't matter becuase its white.

 
well, for one, we're talking about a role being moved from being "for" someone of greater privilege to someone of less. That's an important distinction you're missing. It's the same reason why Nick Fury being black instead of white is different from making a black character white.

 

 
I don't really give a damn if they are black, white, yellow, polka-dot, or some slug alien from Rigel three. It doesn't matter as long as they portray the character right. Especially a character that's gonna spend the majority of their time in a big metal suit.

yeah, that's a good point.

 

I woulda stuck to just Mole Man and Doom, myself.
