I LOVE BOT MASTER SO MUCH. Too bad the toys sucked. I even own jungle fiver. I love him so much, but he can barely stand on his own.

@  TheMightyMol... : (27 September 2016 - 05:03 PM)

That's the 90s.

@  MEDdMI : (27 September 2016 - 04:50 PM)

Ninjzz? That's an unfortunate name.

@  Verity Carlo : (27 September 2016 - 04:44 PM)

Also I thought Fico Ossio was quite nice on Revolutions.

@  Rycochet : (27 September 2016 - 04:36 PM)

You know the planet is in a jam, a diabolical plan of only one man. Louis Leon Paradim an international punk, and his army of 3As are his piece of junk.

@  Telly : (27 September 2016 - 04:26 PM)

for the longest time i thought jungle fiver was called jungle fiBer

@  Bass X0 : (27 September 2016 - 04:21 PM)

Does anybody remember the cartoon Bots Master? I enjoyed the show but looking back on it, most of the robot designs were lame. The only cool designs were Jungle Fiver and Ninjzz although the toys were nothing compared to Transformers of course. I thought the main human characters were decent enough for a show about robots. 

@  Verity Carlo : (27 September 2016 - 02:43 PM)

Although this is odd to me, since I'm fairly sure they are/were good friends.

@  Verity Carlo : (27 September 2016 - 02:42 PM)

Yeah I stopped liking the guy when I found his Twitter.

@  Rycochet : (27 September 2016 - 07:15 AM)

Social media is the worst thing to happen to fandom, you can now see people whose work you like being jerks or shills on a daily basis, which is worse than a bad interview or two.

@  Robowang : (27 September 2016 - 07:12 AM)

@  Broadside : (27 September 2016 - 07:05 AM)

Also, I guess he hates IDW Soundwave for not being an emotionless brick like the cartoon version? Man. Any enjoyment of Animated in future is going to be tainted for me by the fact that DJW is the worst kind of boring Geewunner.

@  Broadside : (27 September 2016 - 07:04 AM)

He also hates Action Man for no apparent reason other than "I don't know who this is and I don't care to find out". Which isn't fair, because Ian is the best character in IDW.

@  Jalaguy : (27 September 2016 - 06:47 AM)

DJW was mouthing off about the art for Revolution the other day too, doesn't entirely surprise.

Oof.

@  zephyrX9 : (26 September 2016 - 08:05 PM)

Sipher made a sarcastic remark about Sakamoto's skeeviness. Derrick called him an a**hole, and insulted his art, which was a low, unnecessary blow.

@  Touch My Thighs : (26 September 2016 - 07:43 PM)

it's a vile interruption, chess the scripture way

@  Pennpenn : (26 September 2016 - 03:49 AM)

I've had versions where the issue doesn't come up (or at least doesn't come up in the part I notice the most), but the version that got remastered for Bluray and DVD releases have it.

@  Nevermore : (26 September 2016 - 02:05 AM)

I initially misheard "flying tools of torment" as "we're flyin' into some torment".

@  NotVeryKnightly : (26 September 2016 - 01:08 AM)

If it's a problem with all released versions, maybe the original audio source was itself damaged?

@  Pennpenn : (25 September 2016 - 09:30 PM)

I wish they'd relase a remastered version that fixed the audio and included at least had an option to have the text crawl rather than the credits at the start.

@  Telly : (25 September 2016 - 09:27 PM)

tryin to buy the movie from amazon for $20-ish. the price of it has been fluctuating like crazy. not a day has gone by that it hasnt dropped to one price and then gone back up a few hours later. never seen a price fluctuate so much

@  Pennpenn : (25 September 2016 - 07:57 PM)

Then again, a lot of versions of the movie had pretty bad sound quality, even the most recent blu-rays mess it up in places, so it's not as much our fault if we misheard stuff.

@  Arazyr : (25 September 2016 - 07:28 PM)

When I first heard it, half of it may as well have been in a foreign language, for all I could make out. (Of course, I can say that about most music...)

@  Pennpenn : (25 September 2016 - 07:14 PM)

I can't remember entirely, and I can't "hear" anything but the actual lyrics now, but I remember "I am born to hurt you, I'll break the boundless sky" as how my brain parsed the first words.

@  Nevermore : (25 September 2016 - 07:01 PM)

So what did you hear?

@  Pennpenn : (25 September 2016 - 06:39 PM)

I almost completely misinterpreted the lyrics for that song for ages, and when I did find out what they were I thought my idea of the lyrics was better.

@  Nevermore : (25 September 2016 - 06:29 PM)

So apparently the 2016 remake of "Instruments of Destruction" is out. I'm still waiting for an Amazon download to become available, but the clips I heard thus far sound cool. They're using the uncensored lyrics!

@  Bass X0 : (25 September 2016 - 03:02 PM)

From the IDW Forums

QUOTE('DecepticonsRule')
Simon Furman has declared his interest in continuing the original story from the Marvel continuity!!!

QUOTE('Simon Furman Q&A')

6. The GI Joe fans are thrilled that Hama has continued the original ARAH continuity and that has sparked some of us here to ask Andy if the same could be done for TF?s. Have you given any thought to continuing the original TF continuity from the Marvel run? And an even better question is, are you even interested in going down that road?

SF) I actually would like to pick up the baton from Marvel issue #80 and run with it again. There was a lot we never got to do, that I?d like to revisit or just to take the next big steps with all that we?d set up in the previous 20 or so issues. I?d certainly rather do G1 #81 than G2 #13, as, strangely, and for no good reason I can formulate into words, I think the time has passed for G2. It was very, well? 90s.



Now we need to show IDW there is interest for this title!!!

We need to rally and make a push to bring Furman back!!!

Obviously one way to vote is with your wallet and by purchasing the classics material. If it sells well, this has a chance.

But I figure there are people out there like me, who can't afford to put money out on trades, especially for material that is already owned in multiple formats. IDW needs to know we want this too. And if we can't vote with money, let's show them!

Here's what I propose:

1. Tronprogram: Please sticky this thread.

2. Post here if you would support this title.

3. Can someone that posts headlines on other TF sites, lonegamer78, for instance on allspark.com post a headline with a link to this thread so other TF fans can come here to vote? Can we do the same for seibertron.com, tfw2005.com, and tfarchive.com?

4. If you are already planning on attending a convention, talk to as many people as you can and have them sign a petition if they would support (I.E. buy) the title. Anyone planning on going to Wondercon this weekend? If you're at the TF Panel, talk to those people!!

5. Go to your local comic shop and try one of two things: See if they will put a sig sheet on their check out counter asking the question, "Would you support a Transformers title continuing the original Marvel continuity written by Simon Furman with a G1 # 81 issue?" Or ask the shop owner if they would carry the title and how many copies they would carry at least.

I already emailed 11 major comic stores: g-mart, grahamcrackers, lonestarcomics, midtowncomics, zanaducomics and more...

I have already heard back from one retailer in Maryland, Collector's Corner, and they said they would carry the title if published, at least 8-15 copies. There's a start!

So we can use this thread to track results and for people to post showing support!

So let's pull together and get Furman back on Transformers!! We can Do This!!!

Cheers,
DR



Support is pouring in. DecepticonsRule has already heard back from several retailers who said they'd be happy to support such a petition.

We've also had some excellent feedback from TFW2005. They were kind enough to write an article which has generated 7 pages of positive feedback.

So please lend your support by posting in the relevant thread. Just a single post saying "Count me in" will do.

Also be sure to LIKE the Facebook page http://www.facebook....113954648684693

And sign the petition http://www.petitiono...w/petition.html

Would this be another offshoot of the G1 continuity, or would it be a fill-in between G1 and G2? I wonder.

I imagine it would pick up from the end of #80 and likely ignore G2.

Ah, so it would be Action Masters and Pretenders: the Comic (also featuring The Transformers)? Not sure if I could muster the enthusiasm for a project like that, I think there would have to be a time skip of some sort.

Wouldn't have to include Pretenders at all. They weren't really featuring in a major way in the comic at #80 (Bludgeon notwithstanding, and would you really mind some more Bludgeon?). And Action Masters could be dealt with in fairly short order. Any hypothetical #81 wouldn't have to feature the toys of the period (actually, that would be AMs and Micromasters, wouldn't it?). It would just carry events from where we last saw them.

I think a lot of us are rather cut up over the G.I Joe fans getting a continuation and a reboot, whereas we're stuck with a sub-par ongoing.

I'm all for having that continuity be relevant again. I know Simon can write great stories without falling into his own cliches, damn it. I'd just hope I'd get the chance to see it, BEFORE someone pulls the plug on it. Again.

What I'd like to know is how it's possible to latch onto a continuity held firmly in the clutches of Walt Disney Corporation, without having to pay royalties or anything, but we were told it was too difficult, legally, to pursue a continuation of the Dreamwave books, once Dreamwave no longer existed.

I don't think Marvel hold any rights to Transformers or G.I Joe anymore. Except for the Marvel characters like Death's Head and Circuit Breaker.

Plus, I think the main problem with a DW continuation is people like Brad Mick have said they won't write anymore until they're paid what they're earned. If someone else wrote it, it wouldn't really be a continuation. It's probably more complicated than that, hence why IDW have never reprinted the DW ongoing

Marvel

I'm pretty sure that question has been addressed ages ago, then. The continuity is not owned by Marvel. Only some of the characters. Thus, new stories could be set in that continuity if they like.

Theoretically, the same was true of Dreamwave--and indeed I think IDW seems to own those stories outright these days anyway, unless I'm mistaken--but the IDW folks didn't want to bother. So, I guess the answer to your question would be "IDW lied."

I just think if it is at all possible, this would be much better than another 'rebooted' G1, or the current meandering IDW is doing with the ongoing.

Marvel and DC books, have continuity that stretches back decades. There's no reason transformers can't do the same. Especially if Joe is getting the treatment.
