I still want my Sun Wukong movie.
aren't there like.....tons of them?
No, they created the basis for Transformers.
Hasbro created Transformers.
That's like saying Hasbro created Henshin Cyborg because Takara used the GIJoe molds.
Might see him here. Nezha made a cameo appearance on The Great Monkey King's Havoc In Heaven story. It's only right to see him here (hopefully).
The financial plane is the ONLY plane that matters outside of fanboy vitriol.
What a relief.
Yeah but the one I mentioned is the Transformers crossover.
ok...you didn't mention that here. you just said you wanted a sun wukong movie. you said nothing about transformers
Yeah, great, whatever! I have no interest in some stupid series over in China. It's bad enough there hasn't been a decent show since Prime over here in America.
I remember watching 'Prince Nezha's Triumph Against Dragon King' all those years ago, when I was around five. I just had no clue what I'd watched back then. Until now.
I thought those burning wheels looked familiar. I can't believe I'm learning who this kid was on a Transformers forum (with a bit of help from Wikipedia)), almost four decades later.
And, now he's probably going to be skating around with Beast Wars Rattrap and Movie Sideswipe.....
Except that all if not most of the product is manufactured there
And it's a massive growing market. Which money made there means stronger finances for future global product. As well as potentially stronger financing for future movie material too as the market share increases.
Not sure how anyone could really complain about this at all. It's a good thing for everyone. More diverse product, they control the inclusion of their own cultural aspects being added so it's not appropriation and is instead a mutual celebration, and it expands on potential for wider product of all types.
Sometimes "fanboys" make no sense whatsoever in their vitriol and egos in how they want to act all Gollum and refuse anyone else the ability to play with the toys too for whatever reasons. This is straight up cool. And it'll be interesting to see the aesthetics that come out of it from China's folklore design cues and other fantasy genre potential.
My primary issue is that it's mostly going to be region exclusive.
When it comes to companies with an international presence such as Hasbro or Lego, region exclusives are bullshit.
Just like region locking for consoles.
True, but your complaints aren't what I was meaning. That's entirely different, but also in the age of sub availability worldwide, and internet toy sales, those aren't as much of an issue as say region locks on consoles. Which that I agree about is bull. But for media, that's market things that can't be helped, but the secondary markets makes that a non-concern. Same as those markets have to deal with from us.
And depending on how well it does, it may not stay a China exclusive either. Lots of culturally pertinent shows have gone global that weren't initially intended as such. Like Pucca for example from South Korea. Or H2O in Australia that became a worldwide phenom that's now several series deep in spin-offs.
It's a cool style. I wish we'd see more of it. I'm always down for more variety in animation.
Animation styles aside, whatever this is, it looks like a really refreshing break from yet another bumblebee pals around with generic pre-teens show. Bring on the fansubs!

Very interested to see more of this, just out of curiosity.
Weirder things have happened. And left shark is still a pretty common celebrated meme. So I really wouldn't count anything out.
I wouldn't be so concerned. Region exclusives when in Asian markets involving the Transformers brand, especially those that are crossover based, have been mainly made up of forgettable fiction and toys no one cares about. I really don't think this is going to turn out to be any different.
Will that kid transform into a skateboard?
I am sure that whatever is made for the Chinese market will be copied by said Chinese and sold as KO\'s later on. Nothing to worry about.
