Batman: The Animated Series Adventures

Batman: TAS is, hands down, the most definitive work of Batman. If not for TAS, there'd be no Harley Quinn, Renee Montoya, or functioning backstory for Mr. Freeze. I think B:TAS will have had more impact on Batman and the fandom than almost anything else.

While I'm inclined to agree with you, I know a couple of batman fans that hold up Frank Miller's work in the 80s as most definitive and also as influencing TAS.

 

I will agree that this show had the most influence my participation in the fandom and my love of the character.

 

TAS also had a HUGE impact on western animation, proving that serious dramatic story lines and more mature concepts could be explored in animation    (as opposed to slapstick comedy and/or children focused content)  in a way that hadn't been done much before and still have a wide reception.

Should cut down on the plastic, particularly with factories shut down in China. Only manufacturing of essential items (eg. medical supplies) is currently allowed, and small and medium companies only have enough reserves for one or two months. I'm waiting for news on the short-term effects of the coronavirus on the Chinese economy and US supply chains.

 

$125 plus shipping is more than I'd like to pay, anyway. I didn't like the miniatures for their first (?) TMNT game, especially when the scale was inconsistent. I assume they got better, though.

 

Sharing dice with the players on your right and left is a good coop game mechanic, though.

Honestly, I've got so many board game Kickstarters relying on Chinese plastic minis at the moment that adding one more isn't really an issue.

Scale on the second TMNT game is much more consistent. I think they learned their lesson there.

I am intrigued. By the time this one delivers, my son should be ready to play and the theme wouldn’t be quite as gruesome as Zombicide for a 7 year old.  Maybe their next theme needs to be classic Scooby Doo :poke:

I'm not sure where they said it (I want to say it was at the beginning of the Dice Tower's play through of the game), but they did specifically say they fixed the wildly different scales.

Got a link to that? I was looking for TMNT City Fall play throughs yesterday.

 

I think fixing the scale issues was a very important fix for IDW. The scale on the first game was horrifically bad, so a second scale fail would have stopped a heap of people from considering buying any game they made in the future. Fortunately they did a good job with it second time around.

I'm pretty sure they are all on the Kickstarter page but here is the Dice Tower play through: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ZdKc7H14v_Y

 

If you are just looking for a good play through, I'd recommend Jon Gets Games: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=MNIV_TTaiIc and https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=3kX5G1AeWdc

Am I crazy? I want to have Mark Hammil sign mine. ::P:

 

His Joker is the one my mind's ear calls up, the voice, along with the Joker being HORRIBLE to Harley.

 

Deep stuff for a cartoon.

 

And so, so many jokes I didn't get at the time. So very much NOT a kids show!

It was both. It was a grownup kids' show. And it was magnificent.

 

And Mark Hammil is the best Joker, hands down. Kevin Conroy is really the first Batman to have a different voice for Batman than for Bruce Wayne, and he was terrific, too.

Andrea Romano was the voice director for Batman.  If she's involved with a show, that's a good indicator that it will be an excellent show.  Or at least well voice acted. 

 

The Kickstarter announced Pack Rat but no Condiment King?!?!  How sad.

      Hello all,
       
      We launched our Kickstarter for Studio X four days ago, and it's funded. The Studio X Mobile Painting Studio is for the miniature painter on the go, or has a limited work area.  It's lightweight, compact (8" x 8" x 13.5") and durable; it's perfect for going to conventions, your local gaming store, or painting with friends. 
       
      Studio X holds up to 60 standard dropper style paint bottles as well as a combination of miniatures, tools, bits, and sprues.  It also comes with a removable brush/tool hanger that can be mounted in your work area.  
       
      Come check out our Kickstarter .  
       
      If you have any questions, please ask; we are more than happy to answer.
       
      Thank you

      Story
         A new set of character to enhance your existing line of figurines. If you joined the first 2 Kickstarters you know how the models are, and if you missed them now you have a change to grab them at a discounted price. 
       Order of the Flaming Lys
      A unique set of warriors intent to defend the purity of the Flaming Lys, a medieval like war band composed by nobles and peasants. The Kickstarter is designed to add 3 extra free models based on funding to make a 15 member deal for 59.00€
      Templars of the flame
      A unique cult, a unique faith merged in a characteristic congregate of female priest warriors.
