it was based waaay too much on the books and comics (of which, that is the main story ive read atleast). and the end is bullcrap anyway. for one the chick doesnt get a scar on her cheek, its her forehead. its like a symbol that shes become one of the clan (duh) but the chick in the movie was weak as piss! no way should she be apart of a predator clan *pushes glasses back up his nose* SCCCHHHEEEK

I think i remember seeing an advertisment in an old comic from Dark Horse or something about Predator Vs ... Batman! Did this ever happen? I'd find that an entertaining read, but you know, theres something about that which makes me take it a little less serious.. It would be funnier still if it was the original 'Adam West' Batman. Go lycra go.

Damo, that c64 version of Aliens i thought was killer, and scary as fuck when your a young'n. But agreed, it was bullshit hard. One of those games where you need graph paper to draw and mark a map as you go.

Also been pleased i finally got a copy of the AvP Arcade game working on the M.a.m.e emulator. If anyone aliens/predator fans are chasing it you can get the mame emulator and avp files from 'romworld' Darren mentioned it a few pages earlier i think.

-edit- link i posted earlier for avp mame was incorrect.

I actually have that Batman vs. Predator comic.. well the final volume (3 of 3) from 1992. One of the only comics I ever bought.. heh
It's actually pretty cool - the illustrations are great, dark and detailed.

As for the C64 Aliens game - there were 2...
One was like a first person deal made by Electric Dreams, which would be the one you're talking about, where you have to switch between characters.

It was pretty rubbish and boring.. I just remember always making sure Burke died first, because he was such a prick in the movie.  ;D

The other one from Activision was great.

You start off flying the drop ship in (the most annoying part), and then after a short cutscene with the mission briefing (copied from the movie - "It's a bug hunt") you move on to fighting your way through the complex, culminating with fighting the queen with the cargo loader.

And yeah, I have the AvP arcade rom too.. one of the reasons I bothered getting mame.  ;)

Who wins and how, Predator should kick Batmans arse, as he is just a rich guy with too much time on his hands.

Far out... that'll be quite the long list... lets see...

I know I've got Optimus Prime, although I think I'm missing the missile things he fired from the back of his truck, Soundwave, with Laserbeak (I think that's the name... I should be shot for not being 100% sure) missing its head (lost that in Scotland when I was 5), Grimlock, the crane Destructocon, Jazz, and several others I can't remember off of the top of my head.  I might take pictures of them all when I get a camera.

i know ive still got a few rattling around the house somewhere. i know for certain that i have Cyclonis, The ambulance autobot dude (cant think of his fucking name), and a couple of others. Not ever being the wealthiest of children, most of the ones i have are the cheap imitation ones :-[. I really wanted them to bring out the Junkians from the movie, those dude are awesome

Regardless, im still watching the movie, and now its just as much for the soundtrack as for the transforming awesome. Anyone know if the soundtrack was ever available?

Yeah for the original movie from 86'. You can download it for sure. My mate burnt me the two disc version. Classic stuff -- youve got the touch and all that.

Ratchet? Unless it's the little Protectibot guy who's name is First Aid I think.

I have Cyclonus too, plus all the Stunticons and a couple more.

I've been watching the DVD's, bought 'em cheap on ebay, pirates I think but who really gives a shit? The most interesting thing I've noticed is quotes such as "rust in peace", "symphony of destruction" and even an episode called Countdown to Extinction...

Interesting you'd choose Rodimus over Optimus for your avatar by the way.

So were Transformers fans of Megadeth, or were Megadeth fans of Transformers? Or, perhaps, its a freak coincidence.

Ha, Im sure its no coincidence.

The Shape : Shockwave was a great character. I think he kind of kept things together in a way for the Decepticons, he helped offset Megatrons headstrong nature with calm logic and ruthless efficiency. *lacking nerd emoticon*

I want to know if anyone had Tripticon. ?

Shockwave is rare i think, a loose one went on ebay for about $250. You usually see trypticon floating around ebay now and then, the toy could walk! how awesome is that.

This is the nerd corner huh? Well I had a pretty nerdy dream a few weeks ago. I had a dream that I was overseeing the reconstruction of Darth Vader. And I was operating some machine putting subliminal messages into Vaders brain. Telling him that Obiwan was responsible for his injuries and the death of Padme and the Jedi were responsible for the death of his mother. Vader became angrier and angrier sort of like the Incredible hulk. The Emperor was watching and he was very pleased with my work.
So what kind of Metal classification would You give to CuntScrape?

I would say Thush Metal.
