Because they tried hard. But they got caught with budget and don't understand the tropes. I just hope the "ololol Forces sux green eyes" memelords didn't kill this one in the egg

@  Sunnyfruit : (23 July 2019 - 02:14 AM)

Buuuuuut I have to admit I'm really intrigued by what they tried to do with Forces, I don't know if it's a new direction or a low-budget cookie thrown to western fans "so they shut up".

@  Sunnyfruit : (23 July 2019 - 02:13 AM)

But of course they would get anime'd to oblivion.

@  Sunnyfruit : (23 July 2019 - 02:12 AM)

He trying hard to push the "meme" direction since 2009, Sonic 4 and the Pontaff writing. IMHO the only way we could get decent FFs is if they get popular among the Japanese crowd and if Sonic became popular with that crowd to begin with.

@  Sunnyfruit : (23 July 2019 - 02:10 AM)

It seems like "Mania Sonic" is what Iizuka thinks western Sonic fans want.

@  Wulfsbane : (22 July 2019 - 10:29 PM)

Well, Iisuka-san is getting the chance to make the NiGHTS game he wanted to make for a long time. Might be good for him to do something else for a spell

@  GamemasterAn... : (22 July 2019 - 07:45 AM)

Or, if we want to go a more direct route, show them all the times that corporate interference in story writing actually made things worse. Examples include many of Hasbro's mess-ups including killing Optimus Prime (the face of the franchise), the mess with Derpy and not knowing what the word "derp" actually meant, and the "Fame and Misfortune" episode debacle.

"Do or Do Not... There is no try."

@  Wulfsbane : (21 July 2019 - 10:06 PM)

Oh no, I totally agree that trying to do something may help a bit. It would show that interest is still there after all these years. Hell, Mighty and Ray made a return.

@  Shadow : (21 July 2019 - 06:33 PM)

Better to try than do nothing.

@  Shadow : (21 July 2019 - 06:33 PM)

He personally may not like them, but if their were some form of collab effort to gather hand written letters, artwork, and products from all over as a yearly effort to get his attention things might move.

@  Wulfsbane : (21 July 2019 - 03:24 PM)

I would imagine the best way would be to go through Aaron, who is a SatAM fan, but there might not be much he can do

@  Wulfsbane : (21 July 2019 - 03:23 PM)

And I'm pretty sure he doesn't like the FF

@  Wulfsbane : (21 July 2019 - 03:23 PM)

The only one that seems friendly to the US fans is Iizuka-san

@  Shadow : (20 July 2019 - 02:32 AM)

It would also mean a great investment to capitalize on a untapped western market of american characters for american fans...that is, if SoJ would ever allow it.

@  Shadow : (20 July 2019 - 01:00 AM)

Because the Archie comics kept the SatAM cast current for so many years their are many fans that would be more than willing to pay good money for seeing them in some official capacity. If only their were a way to find out who to talk to and how to reach them.

@  Shadow : (20 July 2019 - 12:59 AM)

I been thinking. Who is the most key essential person in Sonic Team who is friendly to US fans? Whoever he is would be the key essential person to find and target to bring attention to our fanbase and that their is a market for it.

@  Wulfsbane : (19 July 2019 - 10:52 PM)

Pat does theater work in LA from time to time. She's mostly retired.

@  Shadow : (19 July 2019 - 12:02 PM)

Would a 4K transfer blu ray be possible to produce?

@  Quickster : (19 July 2019 - 12:20 AM)

Unless we were able to somehow contact Pat Allee.

It's a DoW Imperial Guard Commisar. That uniform technically inspired AND was inspired by M. Bison. Try not to think about it too much. Same as the Arbites technically inspired the Judge Dredd franchise, which in turn designed the uniform that inspired the Arbites redesign.

 

 

....But enough about my huge well of knowledge around 40k, let's drift back to that hideous abomination that so desperately needs to be purged in the same fashion as ReBoot's CGI.

He's getting away with a growing debt and disregard as a writer...that's for certain. Who in the world is every going to give this guy a job or money now? He has hexed himself! He might as well come a Telemarketer.

Oh man this is the funniest thing I've seen all day, I don't even know what I can add at this point anymore.

 

How lazy and blind do you have to be to come up with this? No really this is insane! Do you know what I find funnier, he STILL doesn't have a real name, he's just called The Praetorian!

 

Anyone else could come up with something better, this IS plagiarism at this point, just when I think I'm at a lost for words this happens. I'll give Penders this, he keeps surprising and shocking me, but for the wrong reasons. 


Seriously, HOW THE HELL did nobody know that Robotnik was evil!? I mean just look at those red, glowing, hellish eyes, oh yeah I can completely trust that guy with my life! *sarcasm*

Sadly it seems to be something going on with a lot of comics lately: Jack Kirby's heirs are suing Marvel for the characters he created.

 

On topic: remember, [Penders' Logic]That's not Knuckles. His name is Nuckles; a totally different character. [/Penders' Logic]

*Looks at 'not knuckles'*

Yep, he's gonna get sued now as soon as TLSC goes on sale. I personally think based on this alone he can't afford to pay the damages and will have to give the rights back.


A petition to keep up to a third of the characters in the sonic comics from being lost forever.

He's probably going to have to give the rights back anyway.  As I mentioned earlier, Sega could easily sue on the grounds that the only reason those characters exist at all was to sell the Sonic franchise via the comic.  So, unless Penders agrees to incorporate some form of advertising for the Sonic series, he's boned.  Just my two Mobiums on that...
