I LOVE BOT MASTER SO MUCH. Too bad the toys sucked. I even own jungle fiver. I love him so much, but he can barely stand on his own.

@  TheMightyMol... : (27 September 2016 - 05:03 PM)

That's the 90s.

@  MEDdMI : (27 September 2016 - 04:50 PM)

Ninjzz? That's an unfortunate name.

@  Verity Carlo : (27 September 2016 - 04:44 PM)

Also I thought Fico Ossio was quite nice on Revolutions.

@  Rycochet : (27 September 2016 - 04:36 PM)

You know the planet is in a jam, a diabolical plan of only one man. Louis Leon Paradim an international punk, and his army of 3As are his piece of junk.

@  Telly : (27 September 2016 - 04:26 PM)

for the longest time i thought jungle fiver was called jungle fiBer

@  Bass X0 : (27 September 2016 - 04:21 PM)

Does anybody remember the cartoon Bots Master? I enjoyed the show but looking back on it, most of the robot designs were lame. The only cool designs were Jungle Fiver and Ninjzz although the toys were nothing compared to Transformers of course. I thought the main human characters were decent enough for a show about robots. 

@  Verity Carlo : (27 September 2016 - 02:43 PM)

Although this is odd to me, since I'm fairly sure they are/were good friends.

@  Verity Carlo : (27 September 2016 - 02:42 PM)

Yeah I stopped liking the guy when I found his Twitter.

@  unluckiness : (27 September 2016 - 09:16 AM)

I cut out the middleman and assume that they're all jerks and/or shills.

@  Rycochet : (27 September 2016 - 07:15 AM)

Social media is the worst thing to happen to fandom, you can now see people whose work you like being jerks or shills on a daily basis, which is worse than a bad interview or two.

@  Robowang : (27 September 2016 - 07:12 AM)

Dirty Jerk Warts?

@  Broadside : (27 September 2016 - 07:05 AM)

Also, I guess he hates IDW Soundwave for not being an emotionless brick like the cartoon version? Man. Any enjoyment of Animated in future is going to be tainted for me by the fact that DJW is the worst kind of boring Geewunner.

@  Broadside : (27 September 2016 - 07:04 AM)

He also hates Action Man for no apparent reason other than "I don't know who this is and I don't care to find out". Which isn't fair, because Ian is the best character in IDW.

@  Jalaguy : (27 September 2016 - 06:47 AM)

DJW was mouthing off about the art for Revolution the other day too, doesn't entirely surprise.

@  Verity Carlo : (27 September 2016 - 05:11 AM)

Do you have a link, zephyr?

@  Cabooceratops : (27 September 2016 - 01:36 AM)

bweh!!

@  Cabooceratops : (27 September 2016 - 01:36 AM)

bweh bweh

@  zephyrX9 : (26 September 2016 - 10:11 PM)

Sipher's.

@  Telly : (26 September 2016 - 10:08 PM)

*has flashbacks of the "image wars"*

@  Touch My Thighs : (26 September 2016 - 09:30 PM)

Sakamoto or Sipher's art?

@  ShadowMan024 : (26 September 2016 - 08:17 PM)

Oof.

@  zephyrX9 : (26 September 2016 - 08:05 PM)

Sipher made a sarcastic remark about Sakamoto's skeeviness. Derrick called him an a**hole, and insulted his art, which was a low, unnecessary blow.

@  Touch My Thighs : (26 September 2016 - 07:43 PM)

What did Derrick do?

@  Pennpenn : (26 September 2016 - 07:42 PM)

That makes sense, thank you.

@  SHIELD Agent 47 : (26 September 2016 - 07:30 PM)

Derrick J. Wyatt?

@  Pennpenn : (26 September 2016 - 07:21 PM)

Djw?

@  zephyrX9 : (26 September 2016 - 05:45 PM)

wow, didn't expect to have to block djw on twitter

@  ▲ndrusi : (26 September 2016 - 02:48 PM)

Yeah, it was really sad that they didn't survive in any of the endings. Eaten by Unicron every time.

@  Bass X0 : (26 September 2016 - 12:17 PM)

I wish I could have seen Kick Axe live.

@  LBD "Nyt... : (26 September 2016 - 10:14 AM)

@TheMightyMollusk WWE Raw is on tonight. By the third hour, it'll probably feel the same, minus the actual physical trauma.

@  TheMightyMol... : (26 September 2016 - 09:51 AM)

I think I'd rather punch myself in the nuts.

@  Dracula : (26 September 2016 - 09:34 AM)

I think I'll watch Godzilla versus Gigan instead

@  SHIELD Agent 47 : (26 September 2016 - 09:32 AM)

Hillary versus Trump tonight. Oh boy.

@  TheMightyMol... : (26 September 2016 - 06:53 AM)

I think I'm just too used to metal to not understand the lyrics.

@  ▲ndrusi : (26 September 2016 - 06:02 AM)

it's a vile interruption, chess the scripture way

@  Pennpenn : (26 September 2016 - 03:49 AM)

I've had versions where the issue doesn't come up (or at least doesn't come up in the part I notice the most), but the version that got remastered for Bluray and DVD releases have it.

@  Nevermore : (26 September 2016 - 02:05 AM)

I initially misheard "flying tools of torment" as "we're flyin' into some torment".

@  NotVeryKnightly : (26 September 2016 - 01:08 AM)

If it's a problem with all released versions, maybe the original audio source was itself damaged?

@  Pennpenn : (25 September 2016 - 09:30 PM)

I wish they'd relase a remastered version that fixed the audio and included at least had an option to have the text crawl rather than the credits at the start.

@  Telly : (25 September 2016 - 09:27 PM)

tryin to buy the movie from amazon for $20-ish. the price of it has been fluctuating like crazy. not a day has gone by that it hasnt dropped to one price and then gone back up a few hours later. never seen a price fluctuate so much

@  Pennpenn : (25 September 2016 - 07:57 PM)

Then again, a lot of versions of the movie had pretty bad sound quality, even the most recent blu-rays mess it up in places, so it's not as much our fault if we misheard stuff.

@  Arazyr : (25 September 2016 - 07:28 PM)

When I first heard it, half of it may as well have been in a foreign language, for all I could make out. (Of course, I can say that about most music...)

@  Pennpenn : (25 September 2016 - 07:14 PM)

I can't remember entirely, and I can't "hear" anything but the actual lyrics now, but I remember "I am born to hurt you, I'll break the boundless sky" as how my brain parsed the first words.

@  Nevermore : (25 September 2016 - 07:01 PM)

So what did you hear?

@  Pennpenn : (25 September 2016 - 06:39 PM)

I almost completely misinterpreted the lyrics for that song for ages, and when I did find out what they were I thought my idea of the lyrics was better.

@  Nevermore : (25 September 2016 - 06:29 PM)

So apparently the 2016 remake of "Instruments of Destruction" is out. I'm still waiting for an Amazon download to become available, but the clips I heard thus far sound cool. They're using the uncensored lyrics!

@  Bass X0 : (25 September 2016 - 03:02 PM)

:(

@  PlutoniumBoss : (25 September 2016 - 08:25 AM)

Sorry bebbeh, I'm taken.

Seeing the new pics of Series 2 inspired me to make these. Hope you guys like 'em.

Thrust
Function: Tactician

Seemingly a normal Omnicon, the former Skyblast-unit is really anything but. Originally a normal technician working in Energon treatment, the Transformer who would be known as ?Thrust? began to exhibit rebellious and even violent tendancies. Eventually, he rebelled against his people, and defected from the Autobots, joining the crew of the nefarious Decepticon pirate, Cannonball. Thrust then rose through the ranks of the Sea Slag, becoming the ship's tactician.

Little does anyone know the truth... that Thrust's change in behavior is due to the Omnicon encountering the spark of one of Unicron's victims, which had been released by the destruction of the Black Hole. The spark has been absorbed into Thrust's own, leading to his new identity. Thrust has no memory of this spark's former life, but its influence is the reason for his change in alignment, and the development of his tactical skills. Unfortunately, it's also created a desire for power... and not even being Cannonball's right-hand-bot may be enough for him.


Decepticlone
Function: Infantry

After the defeat of Galvatron on Cybertron's moon, it was assumed that the war with the Decepticons was over... finished. But then, after the departure of the four star ships, the remnants from the Powerlinx Battles, who had been driven to the planet Chaar a decade before, suddenly attacked Cybertron. And what's more... they had a new weapon: The Decepticlones, an army of sparkless soldiers created to fuel a new war effort.

Soulless and relentless, a single Decepticlones may not be much alone, but when attacking en masse, they can be a formidable fighting force. And with Cybertron, Velocitron, and Gigantion's greatest leaders gone, Jetfire has the greatest task of his career ahead of him.


Omnicon
Function: Infantry

Faced with the monumental task of facing the new army of Decepticlones, Jetfire was faced with one option. He called the Omnicons back from the distant world they had inhabited since the end of the Powerlinx Battles, and instructed them to commission a fighting force to combat the Decepticlones. Though the Omnicons are naturally not very good fighters, they were more than capable of building them, and with the help of engineers from Gigantion, they managed to create an army of drone fighters of their own, based on Signal Flare.

Unlike the Decepticlones, the Omnicon drones retain their spark-form counterparts' ability to manipulate Energon. Their ability to weild Energon Weapons and Energon Stars in battle gave them an advantage, and they managed to repel the Decepticlone invasion and push the Decepticons back to Chaar. With this new conflict over, the Omnicons have become a staple of the four worlds' defense forces. There exist two varieties... a standard version, and a ?commander? class with artificial ?Super Energon? enfused into its armor.

(Note - The mention of the "second type" is an effort to explain the color-scheme of the series-2 Omnicon release.)


Wind Sheer (Based on Series 2 Decepticon "Mini-Con")
Function: Recon

A Mini-Con hailing from Gigantion, Wind Sheer never felt that he fit in on his homeworld. He craved a life of travel, of excitement, of adventure. It seemed that his opportunity had finally come when Transformers from Cybertron made contact with his world, and he wasted no time in stowing away on one of the numerous transport ships visiting Gigantion. But then, he would have no idea that said ship would be raided by the Sea Slag, captained by the infamous pirate Cannonball.

Cannonball found Wind Sheer among the ship's crew, and immediately took an interest in the young Mini-Con. After learning Wind Sheer had been an archivist on the builder world, he forced the Mini-Con to join his crew and provide him information on Gigantion's resources. What's more, Cannonball keeps the Mini-Con at his side at all times, usually forcing him to sit on his shoulder like an Earth-parrot. In some ways, Wind Sheer finally has the life of adventure he always wanted... just without any actual freedom.

Interesting storyline ideas in there. I like Wind Sheer's bio best of the four.
