  1. Dean Stockwell passed away on Sunday, November 7th! I will always remember him as Al from Quantum Leap! But his role as mentor to Jonas Quinn in Season 6 of Stargate SG-1 was heartbreaking and that episode stayed with me. His career lasted 70 years! He was in one of the later Thin Man movies with William Powell and Mirna Loy in the 1940's. RIP Dean Stockwell, you will be but not forgotten! https://www.independent.co.uk/arts-entertainment/films/news/dean-stockwell-death-quantum-leap-b1954096.html https://www.tmz.com/2021/11/08/dean-stockwell-dead-dies-quantum-leap-married-to-the-mob/
  2. The writers if memory serves credits were "drama" based, I think they were most notable for writing for "Gilmore Girls". Also I don't think they watched much of Star Trek beyond a few casual viewing. So I believe and it's been attributed I think in from Midnight Edge, that when Brian Fuller was removed by Mooves, the writers deciding to pay "homage" to the Indie Gamer out of desperation due to some sort of contraints and being thrown into something that wasn't their strong suit. And I think on Trekyards one of the hosts surmised that because Steam is swamped with games, no one would put two and two togehter. And let's not forget CBS's Legal Department, I also believe on Trekyard one of the hosts pointed out that the Legal Department has a building larger than the Animation Department. So it's possible that if it wasn't for the whole "Axanar" and STD backlash, this might have been swept under the carpet. Again the Indie Gamer during discussions with CBS legal was offered as a compromise to "not be sued by CBS".
  3. The unintended consequences of this are how Netflix (who paid almost in entirety for Discovery in season one) will deal with CBS from this point on with Discovery. I'm pretty sure they don't want to be dragged down in this. As well as Paramount (the holder of the Movie licenses) who is struggling to find funds for Star Trek 4, how will they be hit since they need as many big franchises to stay afloat and they were pinning their hopes on a Star Trek 4 Thor and JJ Kirk reunion. And will Les Moonves (spelling, but don't care enough to find the right spelling) will he be given the axe since he's why modern Trek is a mess?! Also will CBS play dirty as they has subtly threatened Abdin with a law suit?
  4. Well it is shocking considering how CBS dropped the hammer on all Fan made Trek films because they were worried about damaging their "Intellectual Property", only to have they themselves (CBS) literally damaging their "Intellectual Property" by copying and pasting verbatim elements of someone else's Intellectual Property and threaten them with a promise that they "won't sue them" (current situation with the Indie Game Dev). So get the popcorn out this will be fun!
  5. https://trekmovie.com/2018/06/28/legendary-sci-fi-author-harlan-ellison-dead-at-84-wrote-star-trek-classic-city-on-the-edge-of-forever/ https://www.bleedingcool.com/2018/06/29/j-michael-straczynski-pens-heartfelt-letter-about-his-friend-harlan-ellison/ The original Star Trek series episode "City on the Edge of Forever" was my first exposure to his work, but the first time I've seen his face was on Babylon 5 in a cameo role as a Psi Cop in the episode "The Face of the Enemy." RIP Harlan Ellison!
  6. Cobra Kai got renewed for a Second Season! http://variety.com/2018/tv/news/cobra-kai-season-2-renewed-youtube-red-1202805893/
  7. Is this "kickstarter" thing being run by the people who recently bought the Canadian Branch of Toyrus?
  8. I hope he is returning for future episodes, it would be interesting to see what happened to him! And for some thing I noticed while looking at IMDB... (Spoiler-ish speculation)...
  9. Someone posted in hand pictures of Power of the Primes Predaking! (From TFW2005) More at: http://news.tfw2005.com/2018/03/24/power-primes-predaking-hand-images-361270
  10. More so especially from the new trailer! But will Martin Kove's character of John "Finish Him" Kresse be in this series since he's in the trailer at 0:06?
  11. Takara Tomy Transformers GOD BOMBER! GOD GINRAI! http://www.seibertron.com/transformers/news/takara-tomy-transformers-legends-lg42-godbomber-revealed/36844/ MP-37 is Artfire and Nightstick! From: Seibertron.com http://www.seibertron.com/transformers/news/takara-tomy-masterpiece-mp37-artfire-and-nightstick-revealed/36843/
  12. Just saw this on Hardocp.com which linked to The Guardian. https://www.theguardian.com/film/2016/aug/13/kenny-baker-r2-d2-dies-star-wars "The British actor who played R2-D2 in the Star Wars films has died at the age of 83 after a long illness." RIP Kenny Baker, you will be missed!
  13. Comparison of God Ginrai and Powermaster Optimus Prime (from Seibertron.com) Comparison shot of the different Headmaster for God Ginrai (also from Seibertron.com)
  14. Color pictures of God Ginrai from Seibertron.com: http://www.seibertron.com/transformers/news/takara-tomy-transformers-legends-news-ginrai-revealed-new-comic-and-hardhead-singing/35909/
  15. Out of curiosity how tall are Chogokins on average? And any speculation on how tall this Golion will be?
  16. The thing that POI did was make all the villains redeemable Anti Heroes. Root was hacker/murderer for hire, Carl Elias was a mobster willing to cause collateral damage to control the Five Families, and Fusco was a corrupt cop! They were all damaged goods and managed to make themselves better!
  17. And an important thing to consider is that every Takara Masterpiece has been reissued at least one time! So if people missed out on Bumble the last time they can always wait for a reissue and get it at HLJ for around $45-50 san shipping cost!
  18. You weren't kidding about it being bitter sweet! I'm kind of sad to see the show go since it was a breath of fresh air. I really do hope there is a spin off in the future, hopefully it won't be on CBS!
  19. There is rumors of a potential spin-off series, but so far all that is is just rumors.
  20. Seasons 1-4 are on Netflix. The first episode will you an idea of what to expect. But through it's run it evolves from an Action/Crime Procedural into something more Sci-Fi.
  21. In case anyone is interested in the Hasbro release of Masterpiece Bumblebee Seibertron.com posted a comparison! http://www.seibertron.com/transformers/news/hasbro-transformers-masterpiece-mp08-bumblebee-in-hand-comparison-with-mp21/35659/ "The differences are as minimal as they were between Prowl and Bluestreak's Stateside cousins, and about what you'd expect."
  22. Created by Jonathan Nolan (Dark Knight Trilogy, Interstellar ) and by executive producer JJ Abrams (Lost, Star Wars: The Force Awakens) and featuring Jim Caviezel (Frequency), Michael Emerson (Lost), Kevin Chapman (Brotherhood), Amy Acker (Angel), Sarah Shahi (Life). After 5 seasons and 102 episode the series concludes tonight (6/21/2016) on CBS.
