    Worst episode ever.

    As a Zelda Fan. Damn Ben Drowned
    As a Megaman fan (where's my Megaman games Capcom) T^T
    As a Sonic. you had to mention fucking Ken Penders (He caused over 20 years of comic history to be new52'd)
    TheAmazingSallyHogan, Sonic the Hedgehog, Ken Penders, Bioware,...

    all because he got fired/replaced with a new Writer and he couldn't let the characters go. Now he Writing a Crappy GN series using those Sonic Characters, With some the worst redesigns ever created.

    RE: Amiibo

    They are scary smart if you train them right. Donkey Kong, before I reset him, was doing chain grabs with a partner, taunting after every kill and starting to learn edge guarding/stalling until I realized edge techs are different in SSB4 and I wasted time so I guess I better reset and start again!

    Vangelus, ever see this picture? Kinda ties into the narrative of combiners mixing & match parts.

    Given your discussion of Drag Strip ending up on Superion, and prior discussion of Optimus running around and attaching everyone to his body, figure you might take a look at it.

    And while nothing might become of it, a 3rd party Sky Lynx was teased back in Feb.
    http://www.tfw2005.com/boards/trans...32-machine-boy-meng-badi-teases-sky-lynx.html

    The group that's doing it, made non brand transforming robots previously, so while this would be their first copyright infringing project, they at least know how to work with factories.

    So this still might still come out, despite the lack of communication.

    ok, in the last few episodes, Vangelus keeps referencing some kind of vinyl collectible figure things? Glios? No idea how it's spelled, but my interest is piqued. Need more info.

    Check out Glyos Transmission Web Log and The Glyos News Dump to start off. It's a highly playable PVC system that's also got some vinyl vehicle pieces.

    A third party Sky Lynx would NOT infringe on "copyright", but Meng Badi before the current line of original figures, they made tons of KOs.

    I loved how they released 2007 movie Arcee under the name "Carrol", plus there were lots of other weirdly renamed movie toys.

    The argument has been round before but technically, anything that uses the Transformers characters as their base i.e. is an unlicensed version of the character and is clearly distinguishable as the character, is then infringing Hasbro's rights to the likeness of the characters. It's not KO levels of stealing design infringing but it is still technically an infringement. I believe Hasbro staff have said as much at conventions.

    That's still not "copyright" for a toy, it's potentially intellectual property infringement for the characters, and even that's debatable, since Hasbro has not actually sued anyone for intellectual property infringement in years.

    Last time it actually made it to court it was a case of a copied Hasbro mold, done as patent infringement. Hasbro won that case, but funny thing is the patent they sued under is now too old to defend.

    Patents expire, and all of the G1 toys are now not protected under US patent law. The actual Sky Lynx mold's patent is expired now, so the basic design could be LEGALLY copied. The character of Sky Lynx, his name, and the Autobot symbol are still owned by Hasbro, but the mold, open to anyone! You would simply have to call it something else, leave off the Autobot symbols, and have the character be different enough to be someone new.

    I'm playing catch-up on some podcasts and found this was the one where TJ mentioned the Callgrim haul. Wanted to clear up what was going on with that mystery incomplete build.

    My brother is the one who owned these, and I sold them on his behalf. He received some extra junker pieces from Jesse from one of his Callgrim orders, most of which I did not bother to sell in the lot TJ got (spare heads and tiny bits), plus some of those extra backpacks which I did include. The near-complete Callgrim was part of that bunch of parts. My brother couldn't recall if the silver arm was built that way by Jesse or if that was his own creation from spare parts. The weird Pheyden torso crap was simply my way of connecting the remaining silver pieces together into something solid for the sake of selling via eBay and then mailing, and has nothing to do with the figure other than being a repository of metallic silver Glyos bits.
