There was one solitary one in Dreamwave, but the company died before he could do anything except be Wheelie's pet.

@  Bass X0 : (27 October 2016 - 10:08 AM)

Who cares about Gnaw as an individual, not just one of many generic Sharkticons? The Sharkticons never showed individuality in the cartoon or comics so I don't care for it now.

Dude got off pretty lightly, there are far worse things to be turned into than a cat if you think about it.

@  Pennpenn : (26 October 2016 - 06:22 PM)

Wasn't the cat a person who'd been transformed into a cat as a punishment? If so, was Salem his actual name as a human? Because calling a cat that is one thing, naming a child that is another...

Hey, careful with that joke there, it's an antique.

@  Bass X0 : (26 October 2016 - 03:42 PM)

The witches from the show "Sabrina" have a cat named Salem. That's like a Jewish family having a cat named Auschwitz.

I hope whatever line follows Titans Return gives us more large Autobot Targetmasters, I want a new Crosshairs even if it ends up being a retool of the inevitable Kup.

I hate how small objects disappear into some kind of space-time breach when dropped, making it nearly impossible to find them.

@  NotVeryKnightly : (25 October 2016 - 04:42 PM)

I recall a Blurr in that '86 movie boxset. Drift retool Blurr that is. Is that set still happening?

@  Bass X0 : (25 October 2016 - 02:05 PM)

I suppose Chromedome would work again repainted red as Pointblank. I'd have preferred that to their Breakaway.

@  Blues : (25 October 2016 - 01:34 PM)

I'm still expecting a blurr with just more paint under the platinum line, but it seems like those random releases slowed down.

@  Bass X0 : (25 October 2016 - 01:31 PM)

There is surprisingly a lack of Deluxe cars in Titans Return. Knowing Hasbro we would get a red repaint of Blurr as Pointblank.

@  Blues : (25 October 2016 - 01:30 PM)

Yeah but I don't own a chromedome, and the only ones around me are nearly twenty dollars

@  Bass X0 : (25 October 2016 - 01:24 PM)

Chromedome is the best mold for Nightbeat and Siren. Blurr and Hot Rod just wouldn't work for either of them.

@  Blues : (25 October 2016 - 01:06 PM)

hmmmm I kinda want to paint my hasbro blurr into a body for takara nightbeat

@  OrionPax44 : (25 October 2016 - 08:25 AM)

If they wanna make him more authentic they need to make the plastic out of even cheaper materials. I want that KO plastic feel. It won't be Ruination without it.

I deliberately avoided the tieins, 1-50 pure straight through

@  The Doctor Who : (24 October 2016 - 10:40 PM)

Then skip to 20, then back to 5, then to 10, then to 47, then back to 30, then 50, then 22, then...

@  Liege : (24 October 2016 - 08:01 PM)

Start at 1

@  Benbot : (24 October 2016 - 07:10 PM)

So should you start at issue one, or are there later jumping in points?

@  Liege : (24 October 2016 - 06:33 PM)

Totally agree: 1-50 is like Ultimate Turtles in the sense it takes all that has come before and mixes it into a satisfying revigoration that still feels fresh. I read a few issues after 50 and felt lost because I missed some of the miniseries.

@  Anguirus : (24 October 2016 - 06:02 PM)

current bit ymmv but 1-50 is a triumphant reinvention of the turtles. I can only compare it to that point in 2012 with RiD/MtMtE when we all realized "wait, TF comics can be THIS?"

@  Liege : (24 October 2016 - 05:57 PM)

It was great up til issue 50. The current direction is an interesting one (splinter and the turtles lead the foot) but the execution is lacking imho.

@  Bass X0 : (24 October 2016 - 03:13 PM)

Never read it. What was so bad about it?

@  D.M : (24 October 2016 - 10:14 AM)

Extremely no. >:p

@  Benbot : (24 October 2016 - 08:10 AM)

Is the IDW TMNT series worth reading?

@  Whirl Maximus : (24 October 2016 - 07:13 AM)

Get some extra shelves to store your shelves on.

@  The Doctor Who : (22 October 2016 - 02:34 PM)

@Andrusi:  Too many toys or not enough shelves, eh?

@  TheMightyMol... : (22 October 2016 - 11:15 AM)

Needs more dakka shelves.

Movie and Animated is easy to explain into the retcon.
The Allsparks are how Primus chose to take form in those universes, and Unicron has yet to show up.

IDW continuity is already in a bit of a mess without bringing Primus and Unicron in.

Honestly, linking the "universes" like that was about as stupid a move as could be made since it really limits possibilities to do things differently.

Is SG Swoop supposed to be modeled after Armada Ravenous? It said he was dark green with red claws.


If they released this as a club figure you could use him as Ravenous or SG swoop. Very cool.

HIGHLIGHT to view:
Like X-9 said, he looks like Energon Inferno/Roadblock, with a new head and no apparent tool on his arm.

HIGHLIGHT to view:
Roadblock. You can tell by the grille. It works better anyway, what with the constructionny hook implement.

Huh... so we would get
HIGHLIGHT to view:
Energon Hauler. ... maybe.

I'm guessing that if you are reading the fourth page of a thread about a story, you either already read it or want to know about it. I never considered casting or setup to be a "spoiler" anyways, just the surprises and the finale.

I mentioned the double use of figures in the figure thread. If the club did make these toys they could release two sets of stickers for them, and you choose which toy you want to make of it... Classic Hauler or SG Ratchet... Armada Ravenous or SG Swoop... Classic Slicer or SG Wheeljack.

Ehn, not really. You don't HAVE to address a lot of that stuff in Continuity X. Any future, say, Robots in Disguise story doesn't really need to address the whole Primus/Unicron thing.

Forever is a long time. Lots of time for Unicron to happen... later.

The Ravenous colors are intentional. There is leeway on which pterodactyl-style Dinosaur mold Swoop would be, but personally, I imagined Brimstone.

Good to see that people are enjoying the text stories. This one was fun to write, with all its fun, twisted-around characterizations and the chance to really explore the mirroverse cars. The mirrorverse is just a fun place to dabble. Plus Evan's artwork turned out great.

I look forward to feedback in any/every case.

The Brimstone mold is cool too. I always wondered why that mold never got a single repaint. There are pleanty of possibilities out there... Swoop, Terrorsaur, Lazorbeak, Hydra, Terranotron, Yokuryu from Dinoforce, and about a half dozen other obscure 'dactyl characters you could repaint him as. I thought Hasbro liked to make repaints and all... nothing.
