IDW G1 has been a victim of it's own success.

@  SHIELD Agent 47 : (29 July 2016 - 01:23 AM)

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.

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.

After grinding and evolving Hornesto to a Beedrill he earned his keep in the Viridian Forest due to his poison immunity. Halfshell and Ozma took care of the Caterpie lineage whereas Hornesto carried the rear to protect the others from the creeping death of poison. I found an antidote which I will save for emergencies. Ran into a new Rattata outside of the Viridian Forest but Ozma got a little eager and slayed the beast. Halfshell prepares for the upcoming gym.

Q: CAN I PLAY MY OLD GAMES?

A. The 3DS will be backwards compatible with all DS and DSi games. Those games will not be able to display imagery in 3D despite being used on the 3DS. However, some games, most notably Pok?mon Black & White, will gain some enhanced functionality when played on the new system. These cases should be considered extremely rare, however.

Isn't it normally the way that the above statement should be read as "Only Pokemon Black and White"? Ah well. So long as you can trade between systems, should be ok.

Huh, my self limitation was always taking better care of my Pokemon. I mean, in R/B/Y I was brutal, forcing them to only heal at Pokemon Centers unless it was crucial to beating the game that I suck it up and use healing items.

Later games I focused on building a themed team (High HP since I am a fatty myself) and avoiding as many extraneous Pokemon captures as I could: basically unless I had to capture it for the game to progress, I avoided it. Cheated a few times, but I suppose if I ever get another game (self-imposed hiatus right now), I might go for the full effect.
Jesus loves you!

I tend to only bother to catch Pokemon I plan to use throughout my initial playthrough of a Pokemon game and then at the end go back to "catch 'em all" since it's easier if you've got a high-level monster with a paralyzing or sleep-inducing move.

I like to build up a team that clobbers everything.

Hence why Gliscor is one of my favorite Pokemon ever.

Mine has an advantage on Flying, Water, Fighting, Grass, Bug, Fire, Electric, Ghost, Psychic, Rock, and Steel types!

I'll just tough it out till I get the 'mon with those moves. It's incredibly satisfying to have three full boxes and almost all of them we're in your rotation while you worked towards the next center. I'll usually have a good 50 or so before I have a team fleshed out, and usually around 90-100 before its firm.

Ya anymore the only time I pay attention to the Anime other than the movies is when we seem to transition between generations. New black uniform look for the original team rocket isn't bad. But they had to lose Wobuffet! Lame! Giovanni pry only accepts them now since they are good at destabilizing rival Teams in the other regions. But come on people Ash has got to be older than 10 by now! And does he get a new Pokedex and 5 Pokeballs from each new Professor now? Seems pretty generous to an experienced trainer. And the new girl isn't half as annoying as I thought she would be. She seems to have a bit more going for her than the whole Contest girl they have done for May and Dawn.

From talking to people in the know, apparently this B&W dub is very true to the original Japanese - unlike any past Pokemon dub. Apparently even all the background music was kept. I haven't watched it yet, though.

I meant the overall feel, mostly. The Rockets, for example, are much more accurately portrayed in the B&W dub. A big gripe with fans of the original Japanese is that TR isn't nearly as goofy as they've been portrayed in the dub.

Changes to names and places is relatively minor, compared to that.

"In what can only be described as incredible, two Pokemon movies will be released this year on July 16th: Victini and the Dark Hero: Zekrom and Victini and the Light Hero: Reshiram; a small scan that leaked on the Internet of CoroCoro magazine has revealed the second title. No other details are known at this time other than there will be two, so we can only speculate what this means. Could there be one real movie with two versions, like with the video games? Could there be two actual movies? Could there be two shorter movies playing back-to-back? Either way, this is quite the development! We'll find out more information within the next few days when more CoroCoro leaks or when the Japanese Pokemon movie website updates."


2 movies? at the same time? icon-bee.gif
