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.

@  Broadside : (26 July 2016 - 03:59 AM)

"Beast Wars anniversary"? Highly dubious.

@  Patchouli Kn... : (26 July 2016 - 12:16 AM)

How come everybody wanna keep it like the kaiser?

@  zephyrX9 : (26 July 2016 - 12:16 AM)

the kaiser stole our beast wars toys

@  ▲ndrusi : (25 July 2016 - 08:35 PM)

beast wars dicketeth anniversary

@  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)

its the rye of the kaiser its the thrill of the the fight

@  ▲ndrusi : (25 July 2016 - 05:18 PM)

Fierce Grape?

@  OrionPax44 : (25 July 2016 - 05:09 PM)

The Rye or the Kaiser.

Mayhem is, somewhat ironically, one of the least random parts of the board. I really don't know how that happened.

Deathy's, Transformers toy ideas for 2010 & beyond.

(1) Overlord: a updated homage new mold based off the character/toy
designs from the Japanese Takara Masterforce 1988 toyline/cartoon
series.
packaging,both voyager sized toys will be packaged together & sold in
a leader sized box+price point.
A voyager sized black long nose stealth jet similar in design to the
1988 masterforce overlord black jet.
A Voyager sized dark brown+white tank design similar in design to the
1988 materforce overlord tank design.
Keeping true to the 1988 materforce overlord neither vechicle will
have a seperate/individual robot mode.
each voyager sized vechicle will have a animal alt mode. I'd envision
the black stealth jet would be able to transform into a T-rex/
brontosauras type dinosaur. while the tank would be able to transform
into a lion.
they'll be a combined mode like the 1988 masterforce overlord has.
both the tank & jet will combine to form a huge robot. i'd envision
the combined process will be similar to the energon 2-in-1 voyager
combiners. the black jet will form the upper robot mode,while the tank
forms the lower robot.
The main reason I decided to add a animal alt mode. was because I
figured the kids would find a jet or tank with no individual robot
mode booring. just trying to make the original concept more exciting
for the kids.
they'll be 2 mini-con that are included with this figure. they'll be a
few mini-con ports on the toys. they'll be 2 mini-con ports on the
left & right upper chest of the combined overlord robot mode. for each
mionicon to attach to like breast plates. similar to what armada
tidalwaves minicon does.
I'm not certain if I want both minicons to have vechicle or animal alt
modes.
either way both minicons will combine to form a gun for the combiner
robot overlord to hold in his hand.
repaint idea for overlord: Starscream & megatron combine to form
galvatron.
autobot recolor idea for overlord: sky & lynx combine to form skylynx.
(2) Victoryleo & starsabre combine to form victorysabre: a updatted
homage new mold based off the 1989 Takara generation 1 toys.
Victoryleo & starsabre would be sold seperatly as voyager sized toys.
Both voyagers combine to form starsabre.
victoryleo would still transform from a lion into a robot. starsabre
would still transform from a jet to a robot.
I prefer victoryleo split up into combining armor pieces similar to
the was the year 2004 energon voyager sized "wingsabre" does.
(3)Takara Master piece Rodimus Prime.
a voyager or ultra sized race car/bot hotrod that plugs into a
trailer. the trailer can break up into combining armor pieces to
attach to hotrod's robot mode. to turn the figure into Rodimus Prime.
trailer would split up into the following combining armor pieces:
boots,forearms,chest+new head. back pack wing with rocket pack or flip
down shoulder canons.
toy would come with the following accessories: matrix of leadership.
hotrod's & rodimus prime's hand guns. attachable saw blade hand.
(4) 5 liscensed vechicles that combine to form menasor.
use either new mold alternators,new mold alternity,new mold movie
liscensed vechicles.
basically I envision 4 deluxe sized liscensed sports cars & one
voyager sized vechicle.
they'd be 2 color variations released: decepticons colored versions
would be stunticons that form menasor. autobots colored versions would
get those popular 1984 car autobots as a combiner.
(5)Predaking: 5 updated homage new mold 1986 G-1 Preadcons that
combine to form Predaking.
4 deluxes & 1 voyager sized toy.
keep all the original alt modes,robot designs & colors. add the much
needed poseable joints,higher sculpt & more paint apps.
I prefer there be no pop on/off accessories. instead have the combiner
pieces built internally inside each individual figure.
(6) G-1 Galvatron: there needs to be a actual updated homage new mold
based off the cartoon animation designs of 1986 G-1 Galvatron.
the galvatron robot will transform into a laser canon alt mode.
the toy will be either voyager or $27 ultra size. the toy will be
beyond super poseable & G-1 cartoon colored accurate.
(7) Trypticon: a updated homage new mold based off the 1986 trpticon
G-1 designs.
A leader sized toy. toy would transform from
robotic T-Rex to battle station & then a robot mode.
the robot mode would have a outer dinosaur skull helmet with a inner
robot head with fanged robot teeth.
the T-rex would split down the middle like the G-1 1986 trypticon toy
to form the battle station alt mode.
maybe include a purple minicon sports cars that plugs into trpticons
dinosaur chest like the 1986 toy has.
please delete the electronic walking dinosaur feature that the 1986
trypticon toy had. instead add more poseability in robot & dinosaur
mode.
repaint ideas are as follows: 1986 overkill,grimlock, 1992 takara
brave dino-geist,BW Megatron.
(8) Sixshot: a updatted homage new mold 1987 sixshot toy.
the toy needs to be either $27 ultra sized or leader size due to it's
transforming 6 alt modes.
toy would be a super poseable 6 changer. maybe get rid of a original
1987 vechicle mode in favor of a new animal alt mode.
perhaps the toy could transform into more realistic better designed
alt modes.
my 6 alt modes would be as follows: robot mode,winged
wolf,jet,tank,dragon
& gun
i'd prefer a perfect infusion of rounded off parts infused with blocky
parts. the upper robot arms & upper robot legs would be all round &
muscular looking. the robot forearms & lower legs would be more
blocky. the wolf claws would be more sharp & claw like. the wolf head
this time would look more organic & would have wolf ears & fanged
teeth. the robot upper chest would be blocky while the lower stomach &
waist is more rounded off.
weapons the toy would come with would be as follows: 2 huge hand gun
riffles & one large sword that could also form the wolf's tail.
(9)Takara brave 1992 Dinogeist. a updated homage new mold based off
the takara "brave" toy line dino-geist toy.
have the toy be in the leader class size level.
basically follow the original 1992 toy designs down to the letter.
only add the much needed poseability like as follows: poseable wrist
+fingers,universal shoulder joints that go up/down & split/extend out
to the sides in/out. universal hip upper leg joints that enable the
legs to walk forward/backward & split/extend out/in. elbow,knee &
ankle joints. rotate 360 degree swivel joints in the arms & legs. ball
jointed robot head joint. rotate 360 degree swivel waist joint. tons
of poseable added to the dinosaur alt mode in the dinosaur legs,feet
head & upper arms.
YOU MUST KEEP & DUPLICATE THE 1985 Grimlock T-REX dinosaur head+neck
that the 1992 dino-geist toy has. have the mouth open & close,with
fanged beast teeth.
Jetmode,robot mode & dinosaur mode must look similar to the 1992 dino-
geist toy. with the same pop out/flip up weapons & accessories.
same colors from the 1992 dino-geist toy must be used on this
upadatted homage version.
(10)shockwave,a updatted homage new mold based off the 1985 shockwave
toy designs.
a robot that transforms into a laser space gun.
voyager sized with tons of poeability. modeled after the 1985 toy &
cartoon designs. proper honage colors used.
please no electronic sounds or light up features. there just annoying
& take up too much of the sculpt+poseabilty toy design budget.
(11) 1987 "horrorcons" apeface & snapdargon: updatted homage new molds
based off the designs of the 1987 trippple changer "horrorcons"
headmasters apeface & snapdragon.
individually sold voyager sized toys. they wont combine with each
other.
each figure will include a headmaster that transforms from humanoid
form to robot head then to beast head.
snapdragon & apeface will look very closely like there 1987 G-1 sculpt
designs. perhaps round off parts more,make e'm sleeker looking.
definatelly make e'm more super poseable than what there were in 1987.
keep the colors schemes true to there 1987 toys.
snapdargon will transform into a dragon,then robot then jet. apeface
will transform into a ape then a robot then a jet.
jet cock pits will open for headmasters to sit in. the robot chest
will flip down to show a tech spec reading when the headmaster becomes
the robot head.
repaint ideas: a recolor using the apeface mold could be 1998 optimal
optimus.
a recolor using the snapdragon mold could be grimlock,overkill,bw
megatron,dino-geist,trypticon.
(12) a masterpiece style Sixshot updatted homage new mold toy.
toy would be beyond super poseable.
have realistic vechicle alt modes.
very sleek & ninja designed.
leader sized figure.
comes with tons of cool weapons like: sword,chinese stars,riffle guns. perhaps have the electronic light up features inside the sword & 2 guns.

All I want is more Energon style combiners.

I'm not a fan of voting on peoples posts. it just seems very passive aggressive to click 'down vote' and not add anything to the thread. and up votes are exactly the same. to my mind the whole point of a forum is discussion and being able to just easily agree or disagree takes the discussion out of the equation.
