"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.

@  Sockie : (23 July 2016 - 10:36 AM)

Cave Carson looks really cool as well, so I can't be too saddened about that.

@  Broadside : (23 July 2016 - 06:29 AM)

I ended up checking it out, and it's pretty damn neat.

@  Broadside : (23 July 2016 - 06:28 AM)

So. Micronauts, huh?

@  Maruten : (23 July 2016 - 03:49 AM)

Oh, it's only backups in "Cave Carson Has A Cybernetic Eye". Still. Onboard.

@  Maruten : (23 July 2016 - 03:44 AM)

YESSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSS

@  Maruten : (23 July 2016 - 03:43 AM)

@  Nevermore : (22 July 2016 - 05:08 PM)

There was a shooting near a shopping mall in Munich, currently eight or nine people are dead. Three suspects, still at large.

@  Nevermore : (22 July 2016 - 05:07 PM)

About time...

@  Nevermore : (22 July 2016 - 05:07 PM)

So now it's Germany's turn to be the target of what appears to be aterrorist attack.

@  Nutjob R/T : (22 July 2016 - 02:44 PM)

Which is kinda... I preordered the new VF-2ss, and then before it shipped there was the exclusive version with the SAP pack that was only open for two days of orders. And then I got the naked VF2ss and it's... Not... Good.

@  TM2-Megatron : (22 July 2016 - 12:18 AM)

Yeah, Japanese online sellers seem to take it very seriously, in my experience. When you commit to something, it's expected that you follow through on it, and cancelled transactions seem to be frowned upon. However, I've never dealt with more courteous or considerate sellers than those in Japan; some have even enclosed a small gift item in the package on occasion.

@  NotVeryKnightly : (21 July 2016 - 03:44 PM)

Nothing really happened, I just got an email saying I shouldn't do that.

@  NotVeryKnightly : (21 July 2016 - 03:43 PM)

But I ended up buying it later since it got delayed.

@  Bass X0 : (21 July 2016 - 03:43 PM)

and what did they do?

@  NotVeryKnightly : (21 July 2016 - 03:42 PM)

I've cancelled something with them once.

@  Nutjob R/T : (21 July 2016 - 03:27 PM)

AmiAmi is nice but if you preorder you gotta friggin' MEAN it

@  Dracula : (21 July 2016 - 03:17 PM)

Yep, I ordered a bunch of Gundam kits from them earlier this year. The shipping was high but I had to do EMS due to the weight of the package

@  Bass X0 : (21 July 2016 - 03:09 PM)

and amiami is a reputable site? this is the first time i'm using them.

@  Dracula : (21 July 2016 - 02:56 PM)

Oh! Nice. I guess I thought SAL was always untracked.

@  NotVeryKnightly : (21 July 2016 - 01:39 PM)

Registered means it has tracking.

@  Dracula : (21 July 2016 - 01:26 PM)

Yeah it's just slower and doesn't have tracking...usually the best economic option

@  Benbot : (21 July 2016 - 01:07 PM)

SAL is just fine

@  Bass X0 : (21 July 2016 - 01:06 PM)

unless anybody has problems with "SAL Small Packet (Registered)".

@  Bass X0 : (21 July 2016 - 01:03 PM)

Okay, I got it down to 11,930 (£85) with SAL Small Packet (Registered). Thats better. £101 would be too much for two Deluxes and a Voyager even with better (IMO) color schemes.

@  MEDdMI : (21 July 2016 - 01:02 PM)

That's about 101.55 British pounds

@  Bass X0 : (21 July 2016 - 12:58 PM)

Is 14,200 Yen worth it for Takara Skull, Hardhead and Galvatron with shipping to the UK from amiami?

@  SHIELD Agent 47 : (21 July 2016 - 11:38 AM)

I doubt anyone takes it seriously that Primax 1005.19 Gamma is indeed the original universe. That author comment is bound to be contradicted by some multiverse story down the road, anyway. Even Vector Prime in AVP said that even if it were true, there is no way for him or his colleagues to discern so, which obviates any substantial impact of "Elegant Chaos".

@  tffan01 : (21 July 2016 - 10:48 AM)

I remember my silly haunted toy thread, 10 people voted 1 star or so sniff http://www.allspark....d-transformers/ I don't believe in haunted stuff but I still made the thread for the lulz.

@  tffan01 : (21 July 2016 - 10:42 AM)

no, he left it ambigious actually.

@  NotVeryKnightly : (21 July 2016 - 10:42 AM)

So someone already contradicted him.

@  Locoman : (21 July 2016 - 10:41 AM)

So really who can say

@  Locoman : (21 July 2016 - 10:41 AM)

But Vector Prime said that it just altered THAT universe's properties, allowing for the development of things like the Functionist world

@  tffan01 : (21 July 2016 - 10:19 AM)

I know he didn't create the IDW universe but he's the writer of one of its titles, that's why I said "his universe".

@  NotVeryKnightly : (21 July 2016 - 10:15 AM)

Also it's not exactly "his (Roberts') universe" since Barber exists, even if you ignore all the earlier IDW stuff.

@  NotVeryKnightly : (21 July 2016 - 10:13 AM)

And it's specifically the intent rather than something that's actually in the story.

@  NotVeryKnightly : (21 July 2016 - 10:11 AM)

I didn't listen to the podcast but the transcript has a bunch of laughing and he does specify "until someone can contradict me".

james roberts says it did.

@  NotVeryKnightly : (21 July 2016 - 09:43 AM)

Perceptor said that the briefcase made alternate universes possible or something but it's not like Perceptor actually knows how all this works.

@  NotVeryKnightly : (21 July 2016 - 09:42 AM)

It... didn't?

@  tffan01 : (21 July 2016 - 09:37 AM)

So, wait does Elegant Chaos story made the IDW universe the main TF continuity? What with it being the base universe. This sucks, there shouldn't be a main universe wtf, James Roberts is just trying to make his universe the most important one. If there has to be a main universe (which I don't think there should) it has to be the G1 cartoon.

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

Wait, what does Disney own?


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.
