Transformers

Ah, yes. There's a similar reminisce to this one going on in another forum I frequent. I've still got the soundtrack on tape. "Instruments of destruction, tools of power play! It's the final interruption, existence rips away!" #### near worn it out over the years! I think it has that in common with ...

Zeroids

Ah. That sounds like either the annual borrowed from the manuals, or vice versa - one of the annuals has lots of very good tech spec stuff for the majority of the vehicles and the "unique" Zeroids. I think I had a small sergeant major, but as Shane says, in those days the technology wasn't really th...

Thanks Gareth. I'm about to hit the road, literally, back to my parents - be back in a week or so. Have a good time one and all!

New 3D Rendering for Genesis

Nigel's very busy now (which is a good thing!) working on projects that he actually gets cash for doing - so this may well be the last update to the Genesis gallery, unless I manage to get round to doing something myself.  You can see the potential in the concept very clearly in this last graphic.  ...

Playing VCD's

Not actally owning one, this may not be the case, but presumably this software will update a FLASHable ROM in the Playstation? You can do a similar thing to modems to update the communication protocols on them. If this is the case, although not messing with the hardware, you may still want to think ...

Reminiscent Music

Oh, I don't know. What I find, watching some modern shows, is that they're really nods of the head to shows gone by. Stuff like Reboot and even Transformers Beast Wars are very cleverly written. For me the modern Batman animated series, particularly Batman of the Future, really are quality productio...

Thundercats

Mmmmm Cheetarah ;)In common with several cartoons around the time, He Man and Thundercats were there to sell toys. That said, Thundercats animation was much better than He Man's and distinctly anime - so odds are there wasn't much crossover. I think you'll find the "hero with a big sword" motif crop...

Playing VCD's

It's probably, as you suggest, to do with the difference between monitor displays and TV displays. Monitors are intended to be very precise - but the problem is that that emphasises any pixellation you might get. I have a vague recollection that monitors use square pixels whereas TVs used round ones...

Labyrinth

I swear most of the people on this forum were separated at birth. Although not on DVD, I picked up the self same pair of movies on VHS in a deal a little while back. Strangely, I've actually not rewatched them yet - perhaps I'll do so if Chrimble TV is as poor as it normally is. But yes, the Dark Cr...

UNCUT series available on video

Not heard of him specifically, unless he did that auction on Ebay recently? There was a period of a few months where the CDRs appeared on eBay. Another bloke was selling them before Simon did his versions, and inevitably some got copied and, ah, recycled. So odds are they're "genuine" but not actual...
