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.

@  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).

@  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)

From the Shout Factory! E-News Letter:
"Transforming The Beast & Headmasters
OK, Transformers fans. This is what you?ve been waiting for. We have officially secured the rights to bring you additional Transformers DVDs. Later this year, we?ll release two 4-disc sets: Transformers Beast Wars and Transformers Takara Collection: Headmasters. <insert ?woohoos? ahd ?heck yeahs? here> and complete series collections. This is the first time the Headmasters series is available in the U.S., and it all came together because you asked for it . . . at Comic-Con, Bot-Con and through our site. We?ll have more details as we get closer to releasing them, but we wanted to end rumor and speculation with an official confirmation here."

I'm buying HM for sure.

But now here's the big question.

Subtitles only? Star Dubs? Or, god forbid, a new dub?

Aaaand, cue me seriously considering selling my Rhino BW DVDs. I love 'em well enough, but I absolutely adore the Shout G1 set, and think they would do a fine job on BW too.

WOO! Gonna love me some Beast Wars collection... would be nice to include Beast Machines. Sadly, that's asking for too much.

Yes, but he made an illegal copy of himself from the single source.

And while the second "official" version was pretty awesome in a lot of ways, he was easily corruptible.

Will I get BW? Probably. I hate the Rhine release and just being released by Shout is a step up. It's a first day preorder if it's on par or better than the Madman sets...or is the complete series box is just totally awesome.

Headmasters...meh, I didn't like what I've seen of Headmasters at all, so I'm not excited any. I'm might be interested once we know the presentation is. If it's Omni dub only, then I don't think I'd want even Masterforce. New subs at the very least needs to be made.

I thought Beast Machines was going to be included with Beast Wars...judging by the number of discs I'd say that's a big no.

Marvel Universe: Transformed Forever archived in it's #80 in a four issue limited series phase.

Pfffth. Someone wake me up when they are releasing BWII on DVD. Not much else interests me from Japanese TF animation.

Headmasters will be boring with any dub. The old dub was at least hilarious, but after 40 episodes, even this could not save me from falling asleep in front of the computer...

Hmmm... I actually don't have all of BW, so that looks like a likely buy. Though their new Reboot set is slightly higher on my priorities because I doubted it would ever happen.

Headmasters... Well I have the Metrodome UK set, but I'm tempted to get this too if it looks good, just to support the release of more obscure foriegn TF series in the US. Masterforce deserves a US release and I'd love it if they got to BW2 and BWNeo.


ZacWilliam, wishes there was Any way we'd get an all new dub, but its not gonna happen...

I've got both the UK and Australian Headmasters sets, but it would be good if Shout! could secure some unedited episodes. Plus it would be preferable to have someone finally do some decent QC on the subs, both for name consistency and to finally correct the subtitles for episode 21, which blow one of the series' secrets several episodes too early, as both of these issues are present on both the UK and Australian Headmasters sets, even though they were released a couple of years apart.
