  1. By the books description he is 72 years old that looks like he is in his mid 30s due to the effects of spice treatments. By Villeneuves' standards that doesn't really matter give that Chani is supposed to be a scrawny half starved sixteen year old redhead with milky pale white skin from living underground all her life, because in Fremen society exposing any skin to direct sunlight is a major taboo and a waste of water which is why stilsuits are essentially head to toe gimp suits. Meh given how good the first movie was I have faith in the casting.
  2. The gundam releases this year are kinda boring, but the other lines like the 30 Minute Missions or 30 Miniute Sisters are pretty creative.
  3. Seeing those pictures of the Blue Gale from Xabungle reminds me of when I was a kid. I had a knockoff toy of it that oddly enough had decals from Macross on it. The hatch parts on the legs had a green sticker with the kite symbol on it with text that said SDF-1 Macross. I remember you could transform it into the truck mode and it had a pull back function that let it role across the floor. Unfortunately it was very brittle plastic and it broke easily, never mind all the small part like the hands were on small pegs that would either not hold the part or snap off easily.
  4. Um.... What in the bluest of blue hells is that? Char's GM?
  5. I've been aboard K-77, the sub used as a stand in for K-19. It was docked as a museum ship in Providence Rhode Island and sank in storm due to the the modifications the filming crew made rendering it no longer water tight. The thing I'll always remember about it was how the entire boat was encased in 10 inch wide rubber bricks in an effort to dampen the noise and sonar signature it gave off.
  6. If it's anything like the Enterprise-D there's at least a couple bodies behind the wall!
  7. People like what they like, I'm not going to hate on them for it, and you can count me the ones that will watch any crappy Godzilla, as I even like the 98 Zilla film. Sure it's terrible at trying to be a Godzilla film to the point Toho has officially declared it a seperate monster mistaken for Godzilla, but on it's own it's a pretty fun remake of Beast From 20,000 Fathoms. My problem with this film is that the original Jurassic Park had this perfect blend of horror, adventure, and sense of scale & wonder that made it special. This sequel just feels more like stupid people doing stupid things that puts them in positions to get eaten by dinosaurs with no weight to them. In Godzilla terms it's like going from the 1954 original to the 70s Godzilla Vs Megalon.
  8. Oh joy. An entire episode dedicated to Kwan Yu Suk.🤢
  9. Claiming new Trek is trying to be like/ripoff Dune is honestly a massive stretch. Especially given how much Picard season one stole from the first Mass Effect game.
  10. I desperately want to see Kwan gutted by an Elite at this point. This whole "I want to rebel and free Madrigal from the evil UNSC that are fighting the aliens that killed all my family even though I know the entire resistance is dead or supporting the new fascist government!" Is really getting on my nerves. Unfortunately with this writing crew the only one on Madrigal that is probably going to get glassed is Soren.
  11. For what it's worth I knew what you were driving at. Looks like a terrible photoshop of Tom Cruise overlayed onto the one of the P-51 Mustang.
  12. Funny the Firefox was made the subject of an april fools joke. I just realized a couple days ago it made a cameo in the Area 88/UN Squadron SNES game as the F-200 Efreet.🤣
  13. No mistaking that armor, looks like BraveStarr is up next.
  14. Yup! That's it! The toys are a lot cooler looking than the cartoon makes them out to be.
  15. So this thread has triggered a memory for me. Does anyone remember another toyline similar to M.A.S.K. from the 80s, but all the vehicles were clear and see through so you could see the transformation mechanics and missiles inside? I think the figures that came with them were also clear, but changed color when dipped in water. I think they were made by Kenner or Galoob.
  16. My brother had that one along with my neighbor. That's how I knew about the helmet variants as they each had the different version. The one I always wanted was the 57 Chevy with the lift kit and the pop up aplique armor plates that made it an adhoc tank. That and the bigazz semi truck!
  17. Did you know this version of Matt Tracker had two styles of masks? One like in the picture with the attached shoulder harness and the earlier one which was just the helmet. It was changed to make it less of a choking hazard.
  18. That technically already happened...
  19. https://www.animenewsnetwork.com/news/2022-03-17/godzilla-franchise-actor-akira-takarada-passes-away-at-87/.183729 Akira Takarada who played main lead character Ogata in the original 1954 Godzilla film and was in at least another half dozen other Godzilla films as well as many more scifi Toho films has passed away on March 14th. Growing up Godzilla films were a big part of my childhood so this hits kind of hard. I consider myself blessed I got to meet him at a convention a few years back.
  20. So... When has a live action video game ever actually tried to be a faithful adaptation of the source? Honest I'm getting kind of sick the "whole we are doing our own thing" excuse. For once just give us a god damn straight up adapation from the game. Yeah it will be predictable fanservice, but so what? That's what fans want. Why do you think the early seasons of Game Of Thrones were so popular when they were the closest to the source material and the later seasons so reviled when Dumb & Dumber decided to put their own spin on things after running out of books to copy from?
