Circuit-breaker '84, this is Megatron's rubber duck. We've got ourselves a Rodimus Convoy. Do you copy? Over.

@  fourteenwings : (16 July 2020 - 07:06 AM)

I'm not going to sit here and bicker with you. I've made my point very clear and have nothing more to say on the issue.

@  ▲ndrusi : (16 July 2020 - 07:00 AM)

I can't do anything to prevent hurricanes either but it'd be absurd to suggest I therefore shouldn't talk about them.

@  fourteenwings : (16 July 2020 - 06:57 AM)

Basically neither you nor I even like South Park anyways so the best you can do is leave it alone rather than suggest it is corrupting hearts and minds.

@  ▲ndrusi : (16 July 2020 - 06:55 AM)

In that case I'm... not sure what the point is?

@  fourteenwings : (16 July 2020 - 06:53 AM)

Nobody should be taking their morals from South Park. You can't prevent people from doing it. It's an artistic work with fans. I don't think I'm off-track.

@  ▲ndrusi : (16 July 2020 - 06:51 AM)

As far as I can tell you just of course'd the thing you were poopooing...

@  fourteenwings : (16 July 2020 - 06:47 AM)

Also, this is starting to get a bit too serious for the shoutbox (though it already was)

@  fourteenwings : (16 July 2020 - 06:47 AM)

"It's that they're internalizing the overall attitude that the writers display through the show's writing." Of course, that's South Park's "artistic" style. It's what South Park's audience wants, and that's okay.

@  ▲ndrusi : (16 July 2020 - 06:47 AM)

You can probably finish the sentence "I got 50% of my sense of humor from" with the name of some fictional work.

@  fourteenwings : (16 July 2020 - 06:45 AM)

And it still wouldn't be S.W.A.T.'ss or Grey's Anatomy's or South Park's fault.

@  ▲ndrusi : (16 July 2020 - 06:45 AM)

The idea isn't that people are taking South Park's in-universe parody moral lessons seriously (though as Nevermore points out, you can't safely assume that isn't also happening). It's that they're internalizing the overall attitude that the writers display through the show's writing.

@  fourteenwings : (16 July 2020 - 06:45 AM)

"People say" those people are right, and you should listen to them. We can't protect people from themselves, but you can advise them well.

@  Nevermore : (16 July 2020 - 06:27 AM)

So many medical disasters because someone took what they saw on a hospital show at face value.

@  Nevermore : (16 July 2020 - 06:25 AM)

So many people who think police and court procedure works like it does in Hollywood, and act accordingly. Sometimes to their own disadvantage, sometimes just to the frustration of well-meaning authorities.

@  Nevermore : (16 July 2020 - 06:24 AM)

People say "you shouldn't take your morals from a TV show" all the time, but regardless of how these people want things to work doesn't mean other people aren't doing it anyways.

@  fourteenwings : (16 July 2020 - 06:01 AM)

And I mean, if you're looking for a 1950s conservative position on something, it's certainly that a TV show is rotting children's minds.

@  fourteenwings : (16 July 2020 - 06:00 AM)

Conservatives are not hiding under the bed waiting to ruin... uh... Family Guy of all things? And like, nobody should be taking their morals from South Park. Expecting such things is impractical.

@  Maximus Ambus : (16 July 2020 - 01:10 AM)

It was just the cartoon with those foul mouthed kids in the UK until that bubble burst after the movie. Reviewers joked the movies target audience would be unable to see it for the rating.

@  Paladin : (15 July 2020 - 05:14 PM)

see also: "South Park." the show that poisoned a generation by teaching them "it's stupid to feel for other people."

@  Rycochet : (15 July 2020 - 11:04 AM)

'Take that! People who care about things!'

@  Rycochet : (15 July 2020 - 11:02 AM)

With Brian, he stopped being the voice of reason and started to be the right wing notion of a liberal, someone who's lazy, pretentious, doesn't work at anything, is every bit as abusive as the rest of the cast and only wins arguments with strawmen.

@  Otaku : (15 July 2020 - 10:56 AM)

Of course, I stopped enjoying Family Guy around that time, so my bias is clear. XP

@  Otaku : (15 July 2020 - 10:54 AM)

Is it because they changed or we changed?  Stuff that was charming, or at least, funny at first can get really annoying the longer you know a person... and I find that can go for fictional characters as well.

@  ▲ndrusi : (15 July 2020 - 08:03 AM)

familyguyjar.png

@  Maximus Ambus : (15 July 2020 - 03:45 AM)

One example is Family Guy where around season 8 Brian is suddenly reviled by everyone and has acted way out of character since.

@  Maximus Ambus : (15 July 2020 - 03:44 AM)

My least favorite thing in fiction is when it changes hands so you get a author, writer or showrunner who hates a character or messes with a arc/layout.

@  Paladin : (14 July 2020 - 06:18 AM)

"Here's a little---whatever. A little thing. A disclosure. An insight. Revisionism---I've always been fascinated by it. By the idea of a writer going back and altering things. Make no mistake: an edit is a profoundly aggressive act. As Froid once said, we grieve for the murdered word. If you want to get the measure of an author, don't look at what they've left on the page.... look at what they've taken away." -- Rung (MTMTE #28)

@  Maximus Ambus : (11 July 2020 - 12:46 PM)

I recall number 73 (old british show) discussing the Transformers movie and had the presenters trying to transform a few figures, one argued his deflated beach ball was a Transformer too.

@  PlutoniumBoss : (11 July 2020 - 08:03 AM)

And he's a big ball, but he's not the biggest ball of them all. (That'll be Pulse Unicron.)

@  Maximus Ambus : (11 July 2020 - 07:37 AM)

Trypticon so scared my Primus figure he turned into a ball.

Better than calling it Voltron 1.

But Voltron I is literally the official name

No I don't get why they called the Voltron from the second season Voltron I and Lion Voltron Voltron III.

 

Well whoever made that decision is dumb and bad and now we're stuck calling it vehicle Voltron because the official name sucks.

I actually did a five minute google search and apparently Vehicle Voltron was 'the Voltron of the Near Universe' hence why the toys were marketed as 'Voltron I' and the Lion Voltron was 'the Voltron of the Far Universe' so it was Voltron III.

 

And then Voltron II was Albegas, which they never actually adapted since the lion one was so popular, but the toys were still released, so that probably would've been from the Middle Universe.

Of course there's a figure of Rodimus as some kind of animal girl. Why would I be surprised by this?

I dunno, I feel like Albegas is the real forgotten one of the three. At least some people remember that Vehicle Voltron existed.

The thing that always amused me about Dairugger is how it's pretty much just a robot that splits into 15 parts but for some reason, it has a pair of giant SUVs for feet and one of them almost looks like a real vehicle. It's like the designer was running out of time and had to rush the yellow one and then just used a photo of a real vehicle for the black one.

Looks like this thing's almost out. Not biting until I see the torso but it looks neat.

 

Lol at the mouth-foaming rage this pic has started with the geewunners though. The booklet states that there's only leg mode. This means that Blot might not be an arm and that's not kosher or something because geewun blahblah TFWiki image sucks blah blah. Like, just look at the thing. being slavish is clearly not part of the program. Not to mention that Sinnertwin's supposed to be a leg anyway. It doesn't say anything about what the other members form so they're mad at the mere possibility of something not being slavish.

How the beast mode has practically zero expressive articulation was an inspired design choice.

Like, why would people want the beast mode with two heads and necks as a defining feature to be able to move them? Also not being a backwards stegosaurus lol

I'm not expecting any big changes aside from surface detailing on the robot modes, but the twin tails transforming into the knee spikes is a nice touch, as is how neither pair of robot limbs are beast limbs.

 

And even if the robot modes themselves hew closer to g1, the beast modes look to be reimagined enough to be cool in and of themselves. Demonic goblin shark Rippersnapper looked great in that early render

It's probably not what Tec meant but to me, 3P five man combiners don't feel like proper updates unless the limbs can become both arms and legs. Otherwise it's just a big expensive display piece.

Is it POTP Rippersnapper or Sinnertwin who has the really thin, potentially breakable combiner peghole. Because thats whats held me back from getting POTP Abominus.

 

This 3p looks good amd, honestly, the abilty, or lack of, scramble city arms/leg mode options doesn't bother me. If they can, cool. If not, they're five good figures (sometimes) that form one bigger dude.
