  1. PalmSpringsSE_small.jpg


    This was taken on my vacation. About 2 minutes later, SE decided to go for a swim off my custom Water Moccasin and into the waterfall. I jumped in after him, thankful I was in my swimming trunks, but I saw him get washed away, never to be seen again. For all I know, he's still down there doing Long range Recon Patrol. ")

  2. the annoying part was the mumbling. duke was always and should be loud.

    You hit the nail on the head right here. Field commanders need precise, crisp diction and need to be able to PROJECT THEIR VOICE when they need to (think Patton). It's a gift, and not everyone has it. I happen to have it, and it comes in handy. :) An actor playing Duke should never mumble. I head him lisp quite a bit, too.


    Other than that, I like him in the role.


    I think way to much attention is given to his facial hair styling. I didn't even notice it. Also, he can't easily go from goatee to clean-shaven often since movies are shot out of sequence, so it's easier for visual continuity for him to have the same shave throughout the movie, unless its a major plot point (like Anna's hair).

  3. Just saw it with my son and we both LOVED it. I like the new twists, the origins of CC, Baroness, Destro, SE & SS. The action sequences were astounding! I also loved that the good guys didn't always win (Paris, the PITT)! How refreshing! And a villain could be redeemed (Baroness)! That only happened with SS (who was pretending to be a Cobra all along) and Mercer in the comic Joeverse.


    And most astounding to me, PEOPLE GOT SHOT and even STABBED! How amazing is that!?! A Neo-Viper even got his head blown off by a grenade!


    Plus, unlike Transformers, we got deep back story on


    1. Destro

    2. Baroness

    3. Duke

    4. Cobra Commander

    5. Snake Eyes

    6. Stormshadow


    and even a little personality and motivation from Scarlett (all science, linguistics, intelligence, resists emotion) and Ripcord (wants to be a fly-boy, digs Scarlett, clumsy but tenacious).


    That's more than most movies can fit in 2 hours and still have crazy action. The opening rescue action sequence was insane. Especially Scarlett with her crossbow. It showed how she wasn't super-human and had to adapt and overcome to beat the armored Neo-Vipers. And Duke rescues his bud before going after the WMD's? Show's heart, something the Duke character could use more of.


    I just loved it, and so did my 7 year old son. Glad I didn't read all the negativity before seeing it. Cynicism is SO COOL, isn't it? :P


    I do wish the Cobra gunship toy looked more like the movie version, and I also don't like the whole "vow of silence" thing. No Elite unit would allow that kind of thing, but I imagine they did that because they already had 4 characters in the movie get their faces deformed, they didn't want to push for a 5th and get an R rating.


    Quibbles, though. That was a fun movie!


    $20 says Ripcord takes on a the new code name "Ace" in the next movie! :)

  4. Some people like peanut butter.

    Some people like chocolate.

    Some like both.


    Some like neither.


    Some are allergic to either one, so some CANNOT enjoy either.

    Some CHOOSE not to enjoy either.

    And some adamantly stand by their preference for one over the other.

    And some are just not that fussy.


    Does that help?

    After your edit, it's a little more helpful. Adding the parts after "allergic" helps me understand stubbornness, but not the original reasons to prefer one over the other to the exclusion of one.

  5. No flames, please. I'm just curious.


    I love ARAH and will continue to buy them and put the figures in my Dioramas (I have several hundred ARAH figs), but I feel many of the 25th figures look more like the comic characters and have a LOT more articulation. More poses, more realistic looking (in general anyway) makes for better Dios, IMHO.


    So I have room in my collection for both styles, and I use whichever works best in my dios, but some people decide they'll never buy 25th. I'd like to politely ask why.

  6. well maybe we can do a special SDCC Nok meeting. Afterwards maybe Thursday or Friday night.

    I think it's be cool if we met up on Sat and walked the floor together. That'd rock.
