My network of spy sattelites however are tagging all anomolous movements -- and someone in the middle of such a wide expanse certainly qualifies. My minions follow your exact route thanks to my next gen GPS receivers and literally stumble across the MacGuffin.

They return it to me, but en route they accidentially lose it through a time-space rift running through the centre of Cardiff, Wales.

So, apart from that niggle, what do you think of it as a whole?

So, I poped down to my local library the other day and as luck would have it they turned out to have a copy of this available for loan. Not the Michael Bay flick, but the 1986 "movie event in the tradition of great science fiction films like Star Wars" animated flick. A movie I've not seen in over 20 years.

A movie I've not seen in over 20 years. Crap, but that's a scary thing to hear yourself say.

Beyond Good. Beyond Evil. Beyond Your Wildest Imagination. The tagline and the narrator weren't kidding. This thing was utterly epic when it hit the cinemas. It was the first time we'd ever seen the characters at the scale they were meant to occupy within the reality of the show. But more than that, they were slaughtering characters (had to make way for the new season toy line up I guess) left right and centre.

Prime. Iron Hide. Prowl. Ratchet. Brawn (plus apparantly Wind Charger, Wheel Jack, Red Alert, Smokescreen, Trailbreaker  and Huffer). Seemingly Jazz, Cliff Jumper, Bumblebee AND Spike too until they get rescued in the last reel.

Not to mention we "lose" Megatron, Thundercracker, Skywarp and the Insecticons to become Galvatron, Cyclonus, Scourge and the sweeps in an awesome transmogrification sequence. Starscream, finally, meets his maker. As do some of the anonymous sweeps, denied identity in their death and service to their new master Unicron.

Seeing  Starscream get literally dusted by Galvatron was so very sweet even back then, and made up for the stunning slaughter of our beloved Optimus Prime. More than that, for the first time ever we kids got to see a competent villain in action: Megs/Gal was just hardcore brilliant instead of this boob who kept getting his arse kicked.

Coming back to it now, the overwhelming feeling I got watching this was that I was watching an episode of the new series of Doctor Who: a frequently poorly assembled plot designed to gather together a string of action sequences, resulting in something that though entertaining in places fails to become greater than the sum of its parts. I'll happily watch it, or own it if someone wants to give me a copy, but I've lost the desire to acquire it, something which saddens me a little.

As written "Impress, Intimidate, and Networking skill and Knowledge checks" seems clear on its own, with previous examples serving as context for this to be nothing different from the standard implementation of such an ability.

For it to work the way you're interpreting it, it'd be written "Impress, Intimidate, and Networking skill checks as well as all Knowledge checks".

So, X is out in the wild stirring things up. The question is has he swayed anyone to his cause?

Eh, the Viper redesign leaves me somewhat cold. It's like looking at Jason Vorhees in battle armour.

I'm a little saddened that Destro's minions are called "MARS Troopers" instead of the infinitely cooler "Iron Grenadiers", and while their costume is more faithful to their comics forebears it just seems somehow lacking.

That's a surprisingly fugly Baroness figure. While I understand the historical reasons why they've scaled the figures as they have, I was rather hoping for 6" figures at the increased level of detail that would have afforded. Similarly I can't believe they've not opted for the cash cow a 12" Baroness figure would have provided.

Interesting redesign of the Nightraven.

The 12" Duke figure explains at least who's in that sequence with the buse from the trailer.

Any plans for a Powered by Spycraft version of 2013?

Unfortunately for you, you secret compartment is already filled by capacity by another secret compartment that is in actually a transmat terminal. As such it is teleported into my clutches moments before the transmat self destructs into inert particles of carbon.

Though indestructable, the MacGuffin is not indivisible and as such it is split into its component pieces -- 6 as it happens -- and scattered throughout time and space in a variety of cunning guises...

I travel back in time and cold-cock Agent 333 before he has a chance to place the MacGuffin in its handcuffed case, consigning all subsequent attempts to paradoxical failure. At this point I shunt forward past the Big Crunch, emerging into the next cycle of the universe like unto a god, influencing the very course of creation itself in countless subtle ways.

The macguffin becomes forgotten, becoming the gravitational equivalent of a spec of sand inside an oyster as its mass attracts the building blocks of creation about itself, becoming the heart of a planet in a galaxy far far away.

I wish that chavs, bogans and pushy rednecks would all peacefully vanish from the face of the world, leaving the rest of us to enjoy existance without a vile unwashed subhuman group of dole dossers ruining it all for the rest of us.

The correct answer is: The Rapture takes place as scheduled, and they're the only ones that are taken.

I wish I knew what that FATAL game was.

Granted. You do.

Niiiice.

Meh. I skipped over the pirate stuff when I read Watchmen -- it was disinteresting and ruined the flow of the main story.

There will be 3 different versions of Watchmen in DVD/Bluray.... check it in Sci Fi Wire

The most interesting bit...

Finally, in the fall will come the "ultimate Watchmen cut," which will interpolate the Black Freighter into the movie, much as the graphic novel incorporates it into the book's narrative, including special scenes shot to take viewers into the animation and out of it again. That version could run as long as 3 hours and 25 minutes, Zack Snyder said. "It's pretty ginormous," he added.

"[For] that version of the movie, ... when we were up there [in Vancouver], we physically shot the ins and outs scenes at the newsstand that go into the movie," Zack Snyder said. "There's ... scenes where our characters pass the newsstand, and then we pick up action at the newsstand that gets us into ... The Black Freighter. And then ... shots where you, like, go into it, and then it comes to life, and you start following the Black Freighter story. And then come back into the movie."

Saw that earlier... Woot!
