Hey, does anyone else think Baxter's head on that action figure looks a tad like Bebop's when he was originally human on the old toon? Just another case of deja vu? Cause there was that spoof where April in this new Toon wore the old Toon April's yellow jumpsuit during Secret Origins and the Channel 9 badge fell upsidedown into a 6!

You missunderstand me again. I don't care what you think about these figures or that comic or whatever. If you're going to stand there and call yourself a reporter, than just report the news. What you are doing is not reporting. It's editorializing. And that's FINE elsewhere. But when I go to read the news, I really don't care to read what you think about what you're reporting on, be your reaction positive, negative, or whatever. I just want the news. Anyone who has taken a grade 6 media class can tell you that the writers' opinions have no place in the news.

That would be GREAT!

When did I say that I didn't like your opinion? I have made no mention on if I agree or disagree with you, not will I. I don't care either way, and it's not the point that I'm trying to make. And yet what you think about this and that is right up there on the main page, under the guise of news. Well sorry, but what you think of the news is not news, and having it up there along side the news just looks unprofessional, and dare I say, ugly.

Quote:
My readers expect it, and I deliver.
Well then maybe you should deliver it somewhere else. Honestly, what's so hard about posting your opinions of the news in a seperate post, so that it doesn't show up on the main page?

Take a good look at some of the Transformers news pages. If any of those sites "reported" the news the way you do, they'd be torn apart! It's just the news, short and to the point, with links to the sources and an option for readers to discuss if they so choose. I think that this site, as a well respected part of the TMNT fan community, ought to be the same way, and I'm simply offering my suggestion on how you personally can make this place better.

Sayonara.

Usagi looks cool but arent his swords, or at least the katana supposed to poke through his belt and then through the hakama on the side there...
I think the wakizashi just gets tucked thru the belt....

..and the 1st test shot i saw of Usagi.. he almost looked like Popeye or something.. last nigh tho' ..after seeing Mirage's test shots ..i'm starting really love the new Usagi fig more and more.. and the idea of a Gen toy.. !!

..!! wow..




..it's kind of a dark time right now.. .. and this TMNT shitck is about the only thing other than my work pulling me thru some of this suicidal sh6t..

i dunno.. i guess i'm a little too passionate about Mirage studioes.. i've met som many wonderful people and they've become staples in my life..

..The Playmates guys i hooked up with last summer are so damm exciting to be around..

.. an that's what i'd love to do.. make toys..so people can give me thier honest opinions..fans..young and old.. and..
..oii..

..before i pass judgement.. i wast see some whole WORKING PRODUCT ..not just some obscure test shots..
..sure they look real odd.. i admit that.. but again.. it's not done yet..
..and further along.. in the line..if this Baxter figure is bad.. who the hell sez thay can't make a second version..maybe all human.. i don't know..

..but i want to see the damm toy..crack it open.. play and chuck it around.. and if it falls apart and is so damm lame.. then..ok.. the figure sucks..


// (..here is my favourite emotacon.. :: " " )

..man..maybei need to chill .. i take this stuff way to personally..

.. again..i know Splinter i know his opinion and don't hate the fact that he reports the way he does.. he is as much of a fan as me..if he wants to be brutally honest..i do my best to learn and accept it..

he can speak up for himself and he can justify why he thinks the way he does..


..i don't know ..
..i don't feel real good about myself right now but that's redundant.. the TMNT stuff is gonna get negative feedback as much as it's gonna get rave feedback.. i've been with this stuff long enuff' to see people giving rationalopinions and opinions where they say.. O' well that sucks ..huhuhuuhh .. and there is nothing to back up the fact why it 'sucks' ..they just say it sucks 'just cuz' ..

..Splinter is not of the later//
..
..ah f6ck .. it's a good time to be TMNT fan little kid, or big kid. ..here's out little friend ::

Wow that that TMNT toy line looks about the best it's ever been..
.. hmm i think there is a crouquet mallet in the back with my forehead's name on it.. and that name is.. Bull'seye ..

Ninjatron,

Take the matter up with Krang. If he feels the same, I will tender my resignation. Now that is the end of this discussion in a public forum. Especially in the news forums. If you really must continue to discuss it publically, do so in general discussion. You can even post a poll to see if I should change my ways. As of now, any further off topic discussion in this thread will be swiftly removed.

I got a reply today from my email to Playmates Toys about the Baxter Stockman figure.

This is from the Product Manager for the Ninja Turtle figures:
Quote:
This is our interpretation of the Spider Robot. We may release just a basic Baxter next year... We will have over 20 variant characters coming out in 2005 and a bunch more still to go in 2004.

Playmates should be making a Giant Robotic Baxter from "Rtrn to NY".
Hopefully a toon-accurate Baxter will come later. Like I said about the vehicles in my separate topic, Playmates seems to be ignoring the cartoon and making their own toy designs. They better straighten up and make cartoon-accurate toys. We need better vehicles that are cartoon-accurate.

Ex-squeeze me?! Who, in God's name, would want something THAT disgusting?! Making a toy of Baxter as he now is, is tantamount to making a very twisted snow-globe. I'll give this latest (and hopefully LAST!) version of Baxter a miss IF Playmates IS ever CRAZY enough to produce it, thank you VERY much! There are just SOME things that SHOULDN'T be made into a toy or action figure, and this current version of Baxter is one of 'em. Yech.

He was being sarcastic. Notice the roll eyes and the dead smiley?

I will buy both of them. Although they both look a little dissapointing.

Don't worry, Aaron, they're only prototypes. I'm sure they'll improve them before their release.

Actually, lot's of the time, prototypes look BETTER than the actual released figures. And I don't think they look dissapointing at all....I think they're some of the best figures from the new line. Well, Usagi atleast. Baxter blows.

I agree. Usagi isn't awful, but the Baxter likeness is awful.
