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.

@  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)

@  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).

A lot of good choices here. I really like Macabre/Triton/Ferak but since I can only pick one I'm going with Fang. I've always liked the design.

Oh, I like them all. I have even started thinking about doing some kitbashes - based on the IDW designs, though.

I think that the SW Crossover Cad Bane would be a good Crosscut, and the Marvel Crossovers Hulk Bulldozer (or the tank) a good Earthquake.

Voted for Macabre, though. I wonder what he transforms into... must be a plane of some sort, with those wings.

If anyone can help me find designs sketches of these guys' IDW appearance, I'd appreciate it (the TPB had sadly, none). I have sketched up a "Tales of Squadron X" story already, about the formation of the squad, and I want some visual aid for my friend who will draw the comic.

Macabre. I remember seeing a nice Digibash of him using CHUG Cyclonus as a base. Besides that, he seems like the coolest of the bunch, and as default leader we need a 2-pack of him vs Impactor.

I picked Ferak because he's got a pretty distinctive jet mode, because he's from one of the most memorable G1 stories, and because I like his head and red face from Last Stand.

They could probably get away with making Macabre and Ferak from the same mold, just with different wings.

If they made Red Hulk out of the Bulldozer Hulk from Crossovers, a simple headswap could make a custom Earthquake.

Macabre. His aesthetic looks like it'd fit the best. The others tend to look like Ninja Turtles villains.

"Disabled people donít have special needs. We have very reasonable human needs. Our needs include freedom from abuse, violence, and mistreatment, the right to autonomy and self-direction, the right to represent ourselves, equal opportunity for education and employment, the right to accommodation, and societal inclusion and acceptance.

The need for accommodation isnít a ďspecial needĒ. Itís a basic human right. Itís a leveling of the playing field that allows us the same opportunities and chances as non-disabled people."

Ooooo! Spiffy!

Although going by LSOTW, I think Tornado had a ground-based mode. He definitely had what appear to be wheels on his shoulders.


Still. I would buy the hell out of that Macabre.

I was mostly going off the G1 comics for these guys, hence Ferak's look (I wanted to get his alt-mode looking right, since that's all we saw of him in G1 and his Wreckers colours are pretty much the opposite)

But c'mon, how can /Tornado/ NOT be a jet!

Macabre or Fang because I remember those two the most from their original appearances.

Yes, he had the same "Transtech" style wheels Animated Blurr does. I think he is some sort of a motorcycle, and could be made from Cybertron Ransack, actually.

I still cannot identify whatever Triton could transform into, and Fang too has no hints of an alt-mode. The two of them look pretty much the same in IDW as in Marvel UK.

And Ferak's head is dead-on Cyclonus, with smaller horns. There was a Marvel Crossovers Iron-Man flying wing, which has similar wings as Ferak, so again, could be done.

Ferak's LSOTW design is actually lifted from this guy.

I'd buy any of them. I'm a sucker for obscure, especially in relation to the Marvel comics or LSotW.

That said, limiting it to one I pick Crosscut. 1)I really like his unique head and 2) the Cybertron/Smelting Pool/Spacebridge story is one of my all time favorites.
