Re: Transformers: Legacy

Dead End is a mixed bag. Building off Drag Strip's engineering made for some interesting choices like the broad chest, but also some limitations like the alt mode rear end pulling itself apart most of the time. The deco in bot mode is, like Drag Strip, confined to the upper body so he comes off a b...

Re: Star Wars - General Discussion Thread

For my tastes, Andor's best when it's character drama, and this show has plenty of it. All of the action is driven by the drama which helps, and the action doesn't outstay its welcome as in this week's episode, it didn't fetishize action, it got to a scene and made a fantastic little meal out of it ...

Re: Fall 2022 Hauls!!

SS86 Sludge , again. Sludge has finally gotten a second run now that he's shipping alongside The Fallen and out from under the thumb of Starscream and chair, and this run has better tolerances on all the joints. Where my first one had a defective wrist and sloppy but not disastrous joints, this new...

Re: Star Wars - General Discussion Thread

Andor's been amazing, every episode is a great length yet still could have been longer, every storyline crystalizes the point of what drives various denizens of that universe to rebel, every ending makes me sad to learn that this show was originally going to be 5 seasons but is now just 2. It loves ...

Re: TV shows are awesome

She-Hulk was a massive let down, and the finale was a massive let down even for a massive let down of a series.

Werewolf by Night was enjoyable, although it could have used more actual horror elements throughout.

Re: Movies are awesome

Weird: The Al Yankovic Story - like most Funny or Die content, some of this is funny and then it runs out of gas on the good ideas but won't figure out where or how to stop. Unlike most FOD content, this is 107 minutes long, so you have an amusing first half of a movie and a second half where the j...

Re: Movies are awesome

Also rewatching the Hobbit movies and I don't get why some people are so down on them. For the most part I really enjoy them, and don't mind at all how things from other books like the battle at Azanulbizar or the debates of the White Council or Gandalf's meeting with Thorin in Bree are in this mov...

Re: Transformers: Legacy

Stupid Target sale got me to buy Elita One , what a turd of a toy. The robot mode's not tooooo bad, they added a lot of maroon to help differentiate her look from Arcee I think, but there's blocky bits and a stupid kibble backpack that doesn't look so good in either Minerva pre-tool mode or in "the ...

Re: Transformers: Legacy

Wildrider - this may be one of my least-favorite figures of the last few years. I don't have a ton of love for Drag Strip, but he's so much better than Wildrider that it feels the latter may have been designed by an intern. The shoulders don't transform, at rest they are in the same position as they...

Re: Movies are awesome

Lightyear was ok, it wasn't a good fit for the Toy Story in-universe connection and I doubt any child ever would find that movie interesting enough to go full Star Wars over the way the producers suggest they are. I didn't dislike it, and I bought all the Hyperspeed-series ships from it (except Zurg...
