#unappreciation – Transformers The Movie and My Childhood

Coming on the heels of why The GI Joe animated movie totally disrespected my childhood I realized the other important 80s property in my life/childhood The Transformers was ALSO ruined and done in by the animated movie in the 80s … this movie was SO bad that The GI Joe Movie had to be released straight to VHS

Anyway, I figured I’d get my #unappreciation for this ipecac out of the way and do another post sooooo….

Transformers The Movie as seen by eclectik –>

The fact that Spike is on Cybertron off top is offensive … the introduction of the humans as characters was annoying from the jump

I never quite understood why the Transformers couldn’t return to Cybertron
… then at one point I thought Cybertron didn’t exist anymore

The ONLY good thing about the Transformers movie (The only Transformers movie) is ….

Top 10 Swords of Pop Culture

While I was doing my Top 10 Pop Culture Ninja Post I thought I’d do a top swords post … I’m not including Excalibur and the like, just really the Cartoon and Video Game pop culture ones … criteria is power and relevance, it’s a delicate balance because some of the lower rank swords may be more powerful or bigger BUT the cultural relevance may not be as strong …. so with all that nerd gunk out of the way …

The Top 10 Pop Culture Swords

10. Snake Sword

The Sword used by Snake eyes, I’m not entirely sure it should be on this list BUT it’s kinda iconic and the Snake eyes Fanboys might balk without it’s inclusion … it looks cool

9. Dragon Sword

Wielded by Ryu Hayabusa, carved from the fang of an acient dragon, passed down to Ryu from he’s father … as long as the sword is on earth it can only be weilded by a descendant of the Dragon Lineage bloodline
When the Eye of the Dragon is fitted inside it (True Dragon Sword) it’s hard to beat … a weak soul holds it and it’s a wrap.

8. Master Sword

Also known as the Blade of Evil’s Bane and the Sword of Time Used by Link in just about every Legend of Zelda game … supposedly the only sword capable of defeating the Ganondorf and his demonic alternate form, Ganon

7. Savage Sword

I had to include one of the Power Ranger Swords in here (There’s tons of them) THIS one is more powerful than all the Quasar Sabers combined … psycho Pink ranger found it and pulled it out of a stone
… it self upgrades and nearly destroyed the earth so … yeah, let’s roll with this one

6. Blazing Sword

I’ll be honest, I never cared for Voltron’s Blazing Sword … always seemed to be a cop out; who knows what it really does, basically the team loses somehow, they form Voltron … still losing decides THEN to form the Blazing sword … swipe swipe they win … feh.
BUT since it’s iconic and it might have some incredible power it ranks this high

5. Sword of Protection

She-Ra “Princess of Power” Sword. It Rivals He-Mans sword, but seeming has a weakness when the stone is damaged, it’s this high on the list because it’s almost as powerful as He-Man’s Power Sword AND can shoot beams from the stone, and morphs into whatever She-Ra needs it to be at the time.

Top 10 Pop culture Ninjas

… via …

I thought about all the comics, video games, and Cartoons I watched growing up and decided to compite a list of the top 10 Ninjas (Actually I have 25 but I’m posting 10) … Im not counting real life/human actors only fictional pop culture icons … this list took a few factors under consideration:

… not as much a list of who would beat who … that would be a totally different list, anyway …

10 to 1 LETS GET IT

The Top 10 Pop Culture Ninjas

10. Raphael (TMNT)

Raphael, the most volent turtle (and my personal favorite) he gets the nod here over Leonardo because Leo is a wus
Dope Close range weapon means he has to get in gut cha close! lol

9. Elektra (Marvel)

Elektra Natchios goes underrated and overlooked as a Ninja though she really is … a Ninja Assassin at that!
(Never mind that movie … that I still watched twice and kinda like) … and her relations with Daredevil might have had something to do with her placement on the list, but you can fix my list in the comments lol
Yet another Sai rocker, she knows damn near every martial arts discipline and even has some telekinesis … what’s more dangerous than a Ninja WITH telepathy!?!

8. Hiryu (Strider)

The Flying Dragon! The first Video Game character … the first Ninja I remember playing in the arcade
The futuristic ninja rocked the “Cypher” … I dont even know what it was made out of lol
Alls I know is he killed his own sister in the game and went nutso … that’s enough to get him on the list

7. Splinter (TMNT)

Even though he doesn’t really lift a whisker in the cartoon, I couldnt put the other guys ahead of him if he TAUGHT them!
besides he won the Battle Nexus and taught the Foot!
Super Stealth Rat, with Super Smelling

6. Sub Zero (Mortal Kombat)

Not much needs to be said about the Master of Cold, this is Sub Zero II not the one form the original game … but he still has the Spine Rip! It’s hard to beat someone that can literally freeze you in your tracks from the ground, in the air … or just by touching you… he SHOULD be number one but the meere fact that his ice can be “blocked” lol
