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).

@  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.

@  ▲ndrusi : (24 July 2016 - 07:01 PM)

I thought King Kong '05 was pretty great! I just wish I hadn't watched it as a double feature with that movie about the island with the giant bugs.

@  tffan01 : (24 July 2016 - 04:46 PM)

yeah it was long as hell, it took me several days to finish it.

@  Paladin : (24 July 2016 - 11:58 AM)

maybe this new one won't take half a day to watch all the way through...

@  tffan01 : (24 July 2016 - 11:00 AM)

I believe this new Kong movie will not be as good as the 2005 one.

@  Pennpenn : (24 July 2016 - 08:52 AM)

You'd figure something like that would get a pass, some kind of grandfather clause since the name is already intractably established.

@  Paladin : (24 July 2016 - 08:15 AM)

"DS-1 Orbital Battle Station." That's the official classification...

@  Bass X0 : (24 July 2016 - 08:04 AM)

now that Hasbro can't use the word "Death" on the packaging of their toys, what will they call the Death Star?

@  Whirl Maximus : (24 July 2016 - 07:44 AM)

It's in the comic con trailer and seems like a hideous waste. I guess the show makers have no reverence for Doctor Who like they do Star Trek.

@  Bass X0 : (24 July 2016 - 04:20 AM)

Which is the height of quality for Family Guy jokes...

@  Whirl Maximus : (24 July 2016 - 04:00 AM)

David Tennent has done a cutaway for Family Guy. Don't get to excited it was a fart joke.

@  Broadside : (23 July 2016 - 03:17 PM)

"Micronauts: Starring psychic Peter Quill and E123-Omega".

@  Broadside : (23 July 2016 - 03:16 PM)

Ooh, sounds neat.

@  Sockie : (23 July 2016 - 01:16 PM)

Yeah, the first was definitely the weakest of the three. Really looking forward to the next issue; judging by the preview for it, it's delving into Karza and Shazraella's past and Microspace's exact political situation.

@  Broadside : (23 July 2016 - 01:11 PM)

I was ambivalent about the first issue, but the quality stepped up in the second and again in the third.

@  Sockie : (23 July 2016 - 10:37 AM)

And yes, Micronauts is great! I enjoyed the first three issues quite a lot.

So many implies more than one.

Generation One, technically.

The Japanese series (Headmasters, Masterforce, Victory).

The Unicron Trilogy was told in three.

Yes, Animated.

But you know? The Joecon hints always point to something OBVIOUS that it turns out not to be, but still applies to something less obvious.
So I'm going to say this is the case here too, and might not be Animated after all.

Hence "technically", since a tiny multi-parter does not really a season make.

And "Megatron Conquers Cybertron" could be fun.

What molds would still be in viable working condition from Beast Wars or Beast Machines?

To me it's gotta be Animated considering what figures are available to them, and it's probably the one year they can still get enough interest in an Animated set before people completely move on to something else (due to the show and style being dropped from any new merch).

They used most of Universe and Classics, a lot of ROTF (if not all) and all of Movie 1 is off the table, RTS and Generations are too new. Energon and Cybertron still have some molds, but I don't think the ones they have left are ones they're likely to want to visit.

Anything else is probably too old to go back to. So Animated is the only logical choice at this point. And as I (and Daytonus mentioned) if they're going to use them, now is the best (and probably only) time to do so.

If the rumors of what the toys will be (more Classics and Animated) are to be believed, perhaps we can expect a comic containing vignettes of several different continuities and a mix of toys accordingly.

This makes sense.

Why would they call a UT or Animated continuation "season 3.5" instead of "season 4"? Besides, last we were told, they didn't have access to the Animated universe, only the toys.

If it is Animated I wonder how many people will request they do Wingblade Optimus, Hydrodive Bumblebee, and Blackout even though TakaraTomy released them at cheaper prices than the BotCon figures would likely cost?

If it is Animated, I hope BotCon doesn't do anything that TakaraTomy did but Hasbro didn't.

Yeah. I'm going to get Cheetor because i'm a Beast Whore, but if the rest of the box set is Animated.....*looks at his box of Animated toys that has gone untouched for almost a year*

Not that I have anything in particular against Animated. I'll buy them at retail, but Botcon Exclusive prices? Probably not.

That said, i'm actually against the idea of a mixed Classics/Animated set. At that point you're trying to be all things to all fans, and I think singularity of focus and theme cohesion is better than a hodgepodge mishmash. Judging from past box set sales, most fans seem to feel this way also (2005 and, yes, 2010 have both suffered, while 2006, 2007, 2008 and 2009 have done mostly quite well, with the latter being somewhat on the iffy side. Yes, before anyone jumps in to correct me, I know this probably isn't the only reason that those two years didn't perform as well, but i'm pretty sure it was one of the major factors).
