    I've never touched any Pratchett fiction before, but when you mentioned that movie or whatever it was that used to be on Netflix, and I saw that clip, you piqued my interest. I think the least I could do is check it out, see what I think of a taste of his work.

    The TV adaptations are ok but I don't think you can beat just reading the books - things look better in your head and you get all the background descriptions and internal thoughts that don't come across on tv.


    Magnus vs Galvatron fight in the uk comics has to be one of the best.

    The question pool must be getting really low.

    Think of it this way Vangelus if you weren't in Saints Row Hell that means you must be in heaven.

    On the topic of collector oriented toylines...
    I don't think crowd founding is the ONLY way going forward. Many companies that make unofficial Transformers products aimed at collectors have established enough fanbases to survive, and I don't see Hasbro (or any other major company) completely doing away with collector oriented lines in the future either.
    Stuff like Kick Starter certainly opens up the marketplace, but it's not "The Future" to the point that other avenues won't exist.

    I'm sure. I would be doing so to whet my appetite and confirm interest in reading his books, not as a replacement for picking up the arcane artifacts of bound papers.

    Every once in a while I just randomly watch the last episode of Armada, that episode is so fantastically animated/made compared to the entire rest of the show.

    Armada had its issues, and the latter stuff certainly blows the earlier stuff out of the water, but all in all? I thoroughly enjoy the show. Maybe it's because I know the latter part of it manages to do something pretty cool, but it still ranks as one of my personal favourite Transformers series.

    The episode that Seth was thinking of : Atlantis, Arise!

    Megatron convinces Nergill, the king of Sub-Atlantica, to attack a city.

    That's the one. Drew (remember that guy) and I recorded a dumb commentary track for that episode so it was driving me crazy when I couldn't remember the title. Getting older is lame.

    I loved the Kickstarter dialogue... it was so good and valuable, then drifted into complete madness with the movie mashup to end all movie mashups. So hilarious.
