Who sings the first part of the GIJoe The Movie theme song? (Cobra) Sounds so familiar.

@  SHIELD Agent 47 : (17 January 2018 - 10:46 PM)

Also true.

@  Tm_Silverclaw : (17 January 2018 - 10:40 PM)

I hate brick and mortar stores around here.

@  SHIELD Agent 47 : (17 January 2018 - 10:38 PM)

But I like the feel of the brick and mortar search a bit more. And I can see inside packages at brick and mortar. True, Amazon has a good return policy, but I like buying once and settling.

@  SHIELD Agent 47 : (17 January 2018 - 10:37 PM)

I suppose I could save more if I bought more often from Amazon.

@  wonko the sane? : (17 January 2018 - 10:36 PM)

Closest I got to "free" was 30% off warpath, which just about lined him up to the canadian price had he ever shown up around me. The pile of loot saved me a pile, but it was still pricy.

@  Shrug : (17 January 2018 - 09:34 PM)

Yeah, I purposefully waited on them because I knew they'd be perfect "add onto orders to get free shipping" fodder. Already gotten two that way. Technically "free" and I barely had to wait.

@  SHIELD Agent 47 : (17 January 2018 - 09:21 PM)

That's how I feel about Prime Masters. Getting back into collecting last year taught me to be patient, which grants rewards most of the time.

@  Shrug : (17 January 2018 - 09:18 PM)

I want Starscream so hard after seeing him in person, but since he's the one being left behind by every other collector in my area, I feel like I can wait for a sale.

@  wonko the sane? : (17 January 2018 - 09:09 PM)

I mean: I maybe woulda jumped on starscream if I found a sale or something, but it wasn't a priority.

@  wonko the sane? : (17 January 2018 - 09:08 PM)

I only wanted the dinobots (cause... volcanicus.) but got saddled with three I didn't want due to the bundling. I'd still be waiting to order if I had waited on individual figures.

@  Tm_Silverclaw : (17 January 2018 - 08:27 PM)

Ahh.. I just ordered the whole case cause I wanted too. :)

@  wonko the sane? : (17 January 2018 - 06:49 PM)

Mostly PotP dinobots. Plus some stuff I couldn't opt out of to get those dinobots. And CW warpath... cause he was on sale.

@  Tm_Silverclaw : (17 January 2018 - 04:54 PM)

What ya getting?

@  wonko the sane? : (17 January 2018 - 04:38 PM)

Yay! My package from BBTS is in canada! I might even get it this week!

@  Benbot : (17 January 2018 - 02:04 PM)

I need a laptop more than a new desktop

@  Tm_Silverclaw : (17 January 2018 - 01:18 PM)

Buying a pre-built computer you should be okay.. It's just the individual parts that jumped huge in price.

@  Paladin : (17 January 2018 - 01:14 PM)

well all the idiots who invested in "bitcoin" will be selling theirs en masse to make ends meet so you might be able to find something cheap if you watch auctions.

@  Benbot : (17 January 2018 - 12:59 PM)

Is now a good time to buy a computer? Or should I wait?

@  Tm_Silverclaw : (17 January 2018 - 12:01 PM)

I pointed out that I'm on disabilty.. I don't have to pretend to be an adult anymore. ;D

@  MEDdMI : (17 January 2018 - 11:25 AM)

Also Bayonetta 3.

@  TheMightyMol... : (17 January 2018 - 10:55 AM)

Nintendo also announced Dark Souls for the Switch, so those people should shut up.

@  Tm_Silverclaw : (17 January 2018 - 10:51 AM)

Apparently people are freaking out that Nintendo announced something for kids and kids at heart. And people are absolutely freaking out about it.

@  TheMightyMol... : (17 January 2018 - 10:23 AM)

...what?

@  Tm_Silverclaw : (17 January 2018 - 10:16 AM)

Why is something for kids and "kids at heart" so bad? :(

@  SHIELD Agent 47 : (16 January 2018 - 09:05 PM)

I vote kidnap Reggie.

@  Tm_Silverclaw : (16 January 2018 - 07:20 PM)

Just post it on the net.. Or maybe kidnapp Reggie and make them do a Nintendo Direct about it. ;)

@  wonko the sane? : (16 January 2018 - 06:50 PM)

Rent a space and do a webcast?

@  TheMightyMol... : (16 January 2018 - 06:22 PM)

They could just do a panel at RI ComicCon or something.

I love RotF Mixmaster, if that means anything.

@  Tm_Silverclaw : (16 January 2018 - 12:42 PM)

Ehh.. when they get to complicated.. it gets annoying. PotP Optimus is decent. Rodimus pushes it just a little.

@  Locoman : (16 January 2018 - 12:32 PM)

Part of the appeal of Transformers for me has always been the mechanical puzzle angle, so I really enjoyed the ROTF/TF2010 line when that angle hit its zenith.

@  Locoman : (16 January 2018 - 12:31 PM)

I'm probably one of the few people who really enjoys complicated, fiddly transformations.

@  Steevy Maximus : (16 January 2018 - 12:14 PM)

Some were decent, but many suffered from that "collector mentality" where it just LOOKED good in both modes...but the engineering was complex merely for the sake of it.

@  Shrug : (16 January 2018 - 10:30 AM)

Huh. That's dissapointing. I had completely missed the Alternators and had just always assumed they were good based on how they looked in photos.

@  Pennpenn : (16 January 2018 - 03:34 AM)

I liked the Alternator Tracks mold. I think everyone agrees the Grimjack mold was just kinda shit even if you didn't care about it being Grimlock as a car.

@  Steevy Maximus : (15 January 2018 - 09:16 PM)

My local dept. store Shopko always seemed to get a few late run gems, like Blast Attack Optimus Primal and hard to find collection 2 Revenge of the Sith toys.

@  Steevy Maximus : (15 January 2018 - 09:15 PM)

Still wish I had snagged that extra Swerve I saw on clearance at Shopko, though

@  RichardT1977 : (15 January 2018 - 08:50 PM)

Smokescreen was the only Alternator I ever got.

@  Telly : (15 January 2018 - 07:24 PM)

i sold all my alternators last year

@  TheMightyMol... : (15 January 2018 - 05:27 PM)

Hound isn't bad, and, uh........

@  Paladin : (15 January 2018 - 05:23 PM)

there's only like 3 Alternator molds at most that still hold up...

@  Tm_Silverclaw : (15 January 2018 - 01:09 PM)

There were no shelfwarmer Altenators where I lived.. Cause no one ever got them in. x.x;

@  Bass X0 : (15 January 2018 - 12:57 PM)

I have Alternators Nemesis Prime since he was a shelf warmer here.

@  unluckiness : (15 January 2018 - 10:07 AM)

You wouldn't want to anyway

@  Chromedome113 : (15 January 2018 - 07:21 AM)

My first Prime was Alternators Optimus, I still can't transform him

@  Shrug : (14 January 2018 - 06:42 PM)

Ah. I'll try to remember that, but I keep forgetting "Gobots" the Autobot even existed.

@  SHIELD Agent 47 : (14 January 2018 - 05:02 PM)

"Gobots" is the G2 Autobot Color Changer.

Thanks Naas, you had to come back 2 months later to post that? :rolleyes In case you missed, I was reacting to Skankerzero's post, not the link which I did not check at the time yet.

 

New trailer was interesting. I am a bit surprised how un-Gordon-y Gordon looks like - no moustache or glasses? But I guess he is a young man still. Bullock looks great.

Poison Ivy will be in this too? Riddler is played by Cory Michael Smith, never heard of him but he looks the part.

I'm still torn on the basic premise, mostly for all the 'non-villains' we will apparently be seeing. There is just something a bit off putting seeing all those characters this early in a time line. That said, we are getting Gordon at one of his more interesting time periods, still a young cop before he fully realizes just how bad and corrupt things are in Gotham. Plus, we get more Bullock, I still say he's gonna end up being the best thing about this show.

 

But all that said, I do feel like this has promise based on that trailer, all the stuff with young Bruce is 'right' with Gordon being first on scene and being determined to help. It makes sense that he'd be a reoccurring character even at this age; as I can see Gordon being one to check in on him; even if he has a butler, just to make sure he's doing okay. It could really go a ways to help show just why Batman trusts him so much, not just because he was the 'one good, honest cop' in Gotham, but also because Gordon looked out for him and did all he could to help him all those years ago. There is really a lot of character building potential here.

I am looking forward to seeing how Riddler started, for example. We all know the whole "cheating on the test" origin, but a guy as smart as he probably did try to make something of his life before donning the green suit.

My only worry is if all the costumed crime begins waaaaay before Batman appears. 'cause it's usually the other way around, and for good reasons.

Who is the woman in the red dress? (sorry I don't have audio here where I watched the trailer) - Lady Shiva maybe?

 

And good points, Database. Even the Nolan series showed how much Bruce remembers from that night, and how Gordon comforting him meant a lot to him - and why he choose him as his first ally.

Joes Chill is probably not in this - given how they showed the same "robber" at the Wayne manor, I think there will be a deeper mystery about the deaths of the Waynes - certainly they were in the ways of some powerful people in most continuities.

The Fish..or something silly like that...She's the current crime boss of Gotham that Penguin works for.

The trailer looks...surprisingly good. Cop Drama meets Superheroics. Seeing the amount of villains on parade is a bit disappointing though. Cobblepot especially feels miscast here. He's a dead ringer for Alberto Falcone.

 

Similarly, with the cop drama aspect they'd be stupid not to borrow heavily from that genre since so many future Bat villains fit that MO. Julian Day, Holiday, Victor Zasz...

 

Three seasons right there, with the GCPD on the trail of these serial killers.

 

All in all, I'm willing to see where this goes.

I can get behind Penguin and Riddler being part of the narrative, as they've both struck me as a bit older then Bruce (The Arkham games have even go so far as to give Riddler grey hair), but the guy cast as Cobblepot...eh. I suppose that's the point of an origin story. They aren't supposed to be recognizable as the people they become.

 

I just hope they don't get so enamored with the famous Rogues that they neglect the ones that would work beautifully in this set up. Heck, bring in Salvator Valestra from Mask of the Phantasm and his crew. There's no lack of small time crooks and crime bosses for the GCPD to deal with in addition to the "mundane" Serial Killers that are future Bat-foes.

 

Heck, with this sort of set up you could even get The Mad Hatter to work pretty well.

 

EDIT: I do know I would love this show forever if one of the reoccuring small time street gangs was the Crazy Eights. For those drawing a blank, they were shown in an episode of Batman Beyond as a rival crew to the Jokerz.

The cops don't get a handle on these guys though. That's sort of the point of seeing the villains before they became villains bru-ha-ha. Gotham's spiraling out of control, and these guys are the result of that spiral.

Gotham wasn't always a bad place to live, thats something that most stories comment on a few times. Right now it's not sunk into the completely corrupt hellhole it will be. Right now we're seeing how Gotham ends up to the point it needs someone like Batman. The typical Batman villains are either nobodies or small fish. They're not actually dealing with Penquin, Riddler, or Poison Ivy; they're dealing Oswald Cobblepot who's just getting into organized Crime, they're dealing with seemingly paranoid nerd, they're dealing with woman who's likely just getting involved with eco-terrorism. They're only called by their villain names in the trailer, I'm hoping, becuase that is who the general public knows them as more.

 

Hell, at this point even Zsasz, since he was brought up as a possible character, hasn't yet been pushed over the edge, and is still a normal person. Depending on if they use him and how close they stick to his origins, he doesn't become a serial killer until after the Oswald has become the Penquin and uses his casino to cheat him out of everything he has. That's why we seem to be getting characters like Miss Fish, to be the villains before of Gotham before the town went to hell.
