IDW G1 has been a victim of it's own success.

@  SHIELD Agent 47 : (29 July 2016 - 01:23 AM)

Though frankly I prefer IDW Ratchet with a Marvel-style head rather than his current Prime-style head.

@  SHIELD Agent 47 : (29 July 2016 - 12:34 AM)

Like dual Fall of Cybertron-IDW G1 designs.

@  NotVeryKnightly : (28 July 2016 - 10:55 PM)

And it at least shows that they're allowed to repurpose designs from other universes.

@  NotVeryKnightly : (28 July 2016 - 10:54 PM)

Dark Cybertron was around when things showing up in toyline and comic together became a really major thing.

@  Waspinator : (28 July 2016 - 10:51 PM)

Given that that Starscream says "Armada Starscream" on his box, I assume the toy was meant to be Armada Starscream and was just re-purposed by IDW to be a body for their Starscream.

@  SHIELD Agent 47 : (28 July 2016 - 09:24 PM)

Hey, Bass X0. It's nice to see somene else paying attention to the distinctions.

@  NotVeryKnightly : (28 July 2016 - 06:44 PM)

Also, Albino Prime that isn't Magnus.

@  NotVeryKnightly : (28 July 2016 - 06:43 PM)

They made a toy that was IDW Starscream with an entirely Armada look.

@  Bass X0 : (28 July 2016 - 05:53 PM)

Other than a change of gimmicks and physical appearance (i.e. Deluxe Galvatron), Hasbro generally keeps a familiar color scheme for the Generations toys. It may not always be perfect or completely accurate, but I can't think of a Generations toy that looks completely different in color scheme to how they should do. A quick l;ook around my room and I can't see anyone who is completely the wrong color scheme. I'd say the FoC Combaticons and Wreckers are the wrong colors, but they're not supposed to be the G1 characters so they get a pass.

@  NotVeryKnightly : (28 July 2016 - 05:45 PM)

The comics aren't beholden to previous G1 material, and the toyline doesn't have a strict need to follow the comics either so...

@  Bass X0 : (28 July 2016 - 05:40 PM)

And yet the comics are not damned. This is G1 Sentinel Prime, not Animated or Movie Sentinel Prime and so he should look the part to how G1 Sentinel Prime has been portrayed so far. An Animated Sentinel Prime color scheme can come later. I don't recall how important the G1 legacy of Primes (Convoys) is in Japan or even if they have Nova Prime, Sentinel Prime, and previous Primes. So maybe Takara will paint him as Animated Sentinel just because its what Japanese fans are most familiar with.  Sentinel Prime didn't have to have been a pre-use of the Astrotrain mold, indeed why even choose G1 Sentinel Prime at all after how long neglecting him?

@  OrionPax44 : (28 July 2016 - 02:02 PM)

Same here unluckiness. I bought him mostly for the Fire Guts look of the Titan Master.

@  unluckiness : (28 July 2016 - 08:38 AM)

I kinda like Fire Guts Sentinel Prime TBH. Though, I think the gray would have looked better as black.

@  Boomhauer : (28 July 2016 - 08:36 AM)

I would've been fine with the Bayformers 3 Sentinel colors, he looked slick.

@  Whirl Maximus : (28 July 2016 - 08:33 AM)

Same as Animated Sentinel Prime then, I bet he's a Functionist fundamentalist too!

@  Rycochet : (28 July 2016 - 08:07 AM)

Sentinel Prime's colour scheme is awful, they should have painted him in his animated deco, comics be damned.

@  Dracula : (28 July 2016 - 07:38 AM)

He's also orange

@  Paladin : (28 July 2016 - 07:23 AM)

kinda not enjoying my TR Sentinel Prime now that someone summed up his personality as "Make Cybertron Great Again."

@  OrionPax44 : (27 July 2016 - 04:51 PM)

Sounds pretty kinky.

@  Whirl Maximus : (27 July 2016 - 04:17 PM)

the wind blew the sun into the river. honest!

@  Vexwing : (27 July 2016 - 12:34 PM)

Sadly no orchestra for me, but we did have the TFA clip as well.

@  ChessPieceFace : (27 July 2016 - 12:17 PM)

I saw Weird Al at the Hollywood Bowl on Saturday, playing with a full orchestra. It was pretty special. And yes, Dare To Be Stupid! With an introductory video clip from TFA, no less.

@  Vexwing : (27 July 2016 - 11:33 AM)

Got to see Weird Al perform Dare to be Stupid in his set last night! That was a nice surprise.

@  LBD "Nyt... : (27 July 2016 - 01:40 AM)

TMW you see a bunch of people have liked something you posted while you were away, and you're like "what did I even say?!"

@  Bass X0 : (26 July 2016 - 05:26 PM)

Regarding MTMTE#55 being released early in some places, its okay to discuss the contents of the issue as long as spoilers are kept within the thread. I refuse to read discussion threads of comics I have yet to read to avoid being spoiled. I also find it pointless to go into a discussion thread and expect to not be spoiled if you have yet to read the issue (unless you don't care).

@  The Doctor Who : (26 July 2016 - 07:11 AM)

@Patchy 'cause people like how the kaiser rolls!

@  MEDdMI : (26 July 2016 - 05:47 AM)

I'm officially addicted to the Comics theme. Every other themes are dull and boring now, I can't stand to look at them for more than a few posts.

@  Locoman : (25 July 2016 - 07:16 PM)

My story begins in nineteen-dickety-two. We had to say "dickety" because the Kaiser had stolen our word "twenty". I chased that rascal to get it back, but gave up after dickety-six miles.

@  Telly : (25 July 2016 - 05:21 PM)

Well, another month has come and gone. I wish I could say I got a lot done, but sadly, real life had a tendency to intervene. Still, enough was done, and I'm pleased to say that new stuff is either coming within the immediate future or very soon. Major details here.

As promised, a new thing, just in time for the (original) release date for the new film.

-

This is the story of an idealistic young Cybertronian, who fought on the streets to survive and saw friends pointlessly killed. This is the story of a vengeful Decepticon, whose hatred was quelled by wisdom and finally saw the darkness that he'd been blind to for far too long. This is the story of the angry young mech who grew into a calm and tranquil warrior, and found where he belonged. This is the story of how Deadlock died, and how Drift was reborn. All he needed was to be set Adrift.

Reinforcements arrive for the Decepticons, simultaneously upping the ante in the war and forcing Hot Shot to confront a demon from his past. Confrontations have begun.

Well, last month had some productivity to it. That's a plus, yes?

Anyway, as announced on my DA page, I'll be taking a break from T:A-R during September (and maybe October) to focus my attention upon other projects, including editing that novel I have planned. So consider it very unlikely that I'll be posting anything of that nature for the next couple months, save maybe a re-edit. In any case, the details for what I've gotten done are here.

Well, here we are again. I wish I could say that the first month of my two-month break from my Transformers series has been as productive as I'd like, but unfortunately, it hasn't. Stuff's gotten done, but not nearly as much stuff as I'd hoped, and I doubt next month will be much different.

Anyway, details on DA as always.

Not sure if anyone here is particularly interested, but as a small gift for everyone who's been following my work, I decided to post a small preview of some of the future installments on my DA page.

Echowarrior's DA: Arc Four Preview

Each section comes from the four installments for the fourth and final arc for my Armada series that I've either finished the rough drafts for (sections 1, 2 and 4 from "Phoenix Rising", "Underfoot", and "Yesteryear") or I'm simply starting on (section 3, with the tentative title of "X File"). Any comments and thoughts on these are welcome.

Anyway, here's the status for this month. Here's hoping work gets done.

Well, last month wasn't as productive as I'd hoped, but I did manage to get quite a bit of stuff done. This month, however, I'm focusing on one single project, so with luck, it'll either get finished, or I'll get really far along on it. Hoping for the former.

Oh, and do forgive the two links for this one; the old format was getting a little frustrating, so I split it into two journals. The first one has the account for my major writing projects, the second for my toy photos.

So yay, stuff's getting done! And with any luck, before the end of August, I'll not only have a lot done, but I'll have some extra cash and get a few bits and pieces done otherwise!

Well, last month was amazingly productive; I was able to work on every project I've got going on right now, and I actually got a couple of them done! Here's hoping this month goes at least partially as well. I don't plan on working on my Transformers stuff, but I've got a few other irons in the fire and I plan on getting as much done with them before the end of the month as I can.
