I'm just afraid of what my wife would do to me if it showed up at our door.

So, I might not be able to get Hasbro Pulse Unicron because my mother is afraid of it

@  Pennpenn : (20 July 2019 - 09:58 PM)

But that's neither here nor there.

Both maybe?

@  Benbot : (20 July 2019 - 04:44 PM)

Do you need a criminal lawyer or a criminal, lawyer.

@  Tm_Silverclaw : (20 July 2019 - 10:40 AM)

I don't suppose the allspark has any criminal lawyers from Georgia. ;P

@  NotVeryKnightly : (19 July 2019 - 01:17 PM)

It seems like, with these kind of things, anything not TF-specific is either in an existing thread or just not discussed since they're not part of something deemed important enough to get its own thread already.

@  Benbot : (19 July 2019 - 12:45 PM)

Yeah, but it's for Transformers specifically

@  Gryllid : (19 July 2019 - 12:39 PM)

There is. It's called "SDCC 2019 thread"

@  Benbot : (19 July 2019 - 12:24 PM)

no general SDCC thread?

@  Benbot : (19 July 2019 - 12:08 PM)

I never even bothered to see it.

@  Tm_Silverclaw : (19 July 2019 - 10:30 AM)

O never hated it, the whole thing was an Indiana Jones movie. I didn't care for the CGI, but that's just nature of the beast.

@  Paladin : (19 July 2019 - 07:58 AM)

sidebar- has enough time passed that we can stop irrationally hating "Crystal Skull" yet?

@  Telly : (18 July 2019 - 09:18 PM)

after 38 years and i dont know how many viewings, today is the first time i noticed indiana jones doesnt use a revolver in the bar fight in raiders...

@  Kalidor : (18 July 2019 - 05:33 PM)

@Sabrblade Depends on when you're here. I used to have the backups happen once daily, now I have them happen once per hour so you might often see a hesitation at the top of every hour for 30-45 seconds.

@  Locoman : (18 July 2019 - 05:11 PM)

isn't that just Modern Family

@  Foffy : (18 July 2019 - 04:45 PM)

that's right. my gym teacher is a clown. new series coming to disney channel next fall

@  Foffy : (18 July 2019 - 04:44 PM)

all these clowns are making me run really fast.

@  Sabrblade : (18 July 2019 - 12:10 PM)

All this awesome SDCC news is really making these boards run slowly.

Racism must be stopped. No matter the cost.

@  MEDdMI : (18 July 2019 - 07:49 AM)

The joke is a husk of its former self.

Something something... corn bread?

@  MEDdMI : (17 July 2019 - 07:21 AM)

Ok, ok. Enough of the puns and let's all thank Kal for the amaizeing job he did.

@  Paladin : (17 July 2019 - 06:24 AM)

by now I think this jokes' been creamed.

Isn't that a kernel of truth.

@  Paladin : (16 July 2019 - 08:43 PM)

huh. suddenly the Squawk is popping.

@  TheMightyMol... : (16 July 2019 - 07:47 PM)

Not placing much stalk in this conversation.

@  Nevermore : (16 July 2019 - 06:22 PM)

That's so corny.

@  Shrug : (16 July 2019 - 06:07 PM)

It's absurd how happy I am that a post of mine made the front page of Reddit.

@  TheMightyMol... : (16 July 2019 - 05:46 PM)

Aww, shucks.

@  TriBlurr : (16 July 2019 - 05:45 PM)

Not till I taste the corn

@  Kalidor : (16 July 2019 - 05:43 PM)

You guys aren't being very nice. You're supposed to tell me I did "good, really good!"

@  TheMightyMol... : (16 July 2019 - 05:40 PM)

Just don't go beyond the rows.

@  Patch : (16 July 2019 - 05:39 PM)

Left over from the failed Beast Machines sequel, Beast Farmers

@  Patch : (16 July 2019 - 05:39 PM)

It's techno-organic corn

@  TriBlurr : (16 July 2019 - 05:26 PM)

We have a cornfield? Can I get a few ears?

@  Kalidor : (16 July 2019 - 12:56 PM)

And lastly, if it becomes too much hassle to deal with - it might just get sent into the cornfield and replaced with a Discord box anyway. So cool it.

@  Kalidor : (16 July 2019 - 12:55 PM)

Second thing is we do actually have the ability to ban users specifically from using Shoutbox if it's being abused like that

Wow, these are some... odd choices. Still, we got Bruce Timm doing Batman again, in the style of one of the first Detective Comics!

 

 

It's a really short quasi-adaptation of "Batman and the Monster Men", which was quite a controversial issue (and the last time when Batman still killed people in comics). Dr Strange looks a lot like in Batman TAS, while Batman has the (somewhat funny) old long-ears costume.

 

 

The Superman short... I dunno what to say. It is a thing of beauty. :) It basically goes through and animates most of Supes' appearances through the last 75 years, including some iconic and some hilarious covers - now in animation.  Oh, and not just comics - we got Christopher Reeves Superman, Superman TAS, Superfriends... and of course, Man of Steel. Love the music, too.

This short is from Zacky Snyder and Bruce Timm, btw.  Only one thing I am missing from it - Lex. All the other important Supes villains are in it, but not Luthor? A bit odd.

The superman one was released last year to celebrate his 75th.

 

I love them both. I love that Batman doesn't say anything until the very end.

Agreed. He has style. :)  Btw, he was voiced by Kevin Conroy, right?

I was hoping for a little more, but then again, there's never enough Batman Beyond out there.

 

Was I the only one who thought the villain was a new version of HARDAC?

 

So, from right to left, that's "Beware The Batman", "The Batman", "The Brave And The Bold", "The Dark Knight Returns", Michael Keaton, Adam West, and 1939?

Not one of the anniversary shorts, but the Batman movie coming out this year, and it's awesome.

Nope. HARDAC being the villain is totally my headcanon.

The robotic face reveal reminded me of the HARDAC episodes, so no. I'd say that's a logical assumption.

That short was great. Still waiting for my dream fight, though: Bruce in his prime versus Terry.

 

And if it's Terry in his prime? So much the better.

 

Still, this was a nice taste.

I would pay good money to see that plot extended into a full animated feature  But each version needs their VA back :D
