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.

@  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).

Seems a guy in Atlanta shot a 17-year-old to death for egging his Mercedes.

On one hand, the retaliation was clearly out of line.

On the other hand, I'm sorely tempted to print out a copy of the article and tape it to my car; it's been egged twice in the last 10 months, and so I do believe a little wall-to-wall counseling might be in order for the perpetrators.

Well, the kid shouldn't have been egging.

I was kind hoping he didn't die after being gunned, so he could have actually learned something. I hope his family gets through this.

I guarantee that if you tape a copy of that article to your car, within 1 week you will have no intact windows left on said vehicle.
A threat means nothing if you're not prepared to carry it out. They know you're not going to shoot them, FI.

Was the toilet paper on sale, too?


No, of course the kid shouldn't have been vandalizing, but that guy was a whackjob. If it wasn't because of some kid and a carton of eggs, it would have been someone bumping his car in a Wal-Mart parking lot with a shopping cart. Or someone cutting him off in traffic. Or his wife serving him an undercooked steak. Or his kid mouthing off.

If someone is crazy enough to shoot someone because of some eggs, they were a ticking time bomb to begin with.

People are batjive for their cars in Atlanta, but I suppose the fact that it was a /gold/ /entry-level/ luxury car should have been a huge tip-off about the owner's sanity in the first place. Pity, the egging was an improvement over THAT hideous color.

Edit: More details -- the driver actually RETURNED to the egging location. Premeditated, but also dumb because he cruised by AGAIN while police were on the scene. http://www.wsbtv.com...574/detail.html

Absolutely! I think it goes without saying. Also as a side note: the location, Joseph E. Boone Boulevard and Joseph E. Lowery Boulevard is in one (of 4!) of Atlanta's neighborhoods that made it into a 25 most dangerous neighborhoods to live in list.

This is why people like me are often such hard sells on whether we really need the second amendment in this day and age. This guy is probably not going to go to jail for all that long - although I'd be happy to be proven wrong. Too many people equate "right to bear arms" with "right to use them whenever for whatever reason" to shoot people for stupid-ass reasons.

Yeah, vandalism is terrible. But it's not worth killing someone over. Why the hell is that such a hard concept to some?
