After the season finale where RM Corp found a way to make thinking Bots, I was hoping for a continuation of the story where Paradim learned the hard way the downside of Bots that can say, "No."

@  Rycochet : (28 September 2016 - 09:40 AM)

I liked Phantom 2040 more.

@  Blues : (27 September 2016 - 05:08 PM)

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.

Ninjzz? That's an unfortunate name.

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.

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.

@  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.

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.

@  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.

Does that mean that the story will feature Elita-1 will being converted into a bad guy, then backstab everyone, gain a large creepy fanbase in the process, slaughter tons on innocents and pretty much become impervious to any comeuppance as she becomes an invincible mary sue?

Because nobody else wants to write about the other guy's totally awesome fancharacter made official u guyze. Just like with Infestation, Drift's inclusion reeks of "editorial mandate", because Ryall and Tipton are gay for Drift.

And yet, with a proper writer at the helm, Drift could actually be *gasp* an interesting character.

Yes, I know, it sounds absurd, but there you are.

It'd take some epic distancing from his crappy-ass backstory, and the loss of that bigass superspecialawesomesauce sword.
And maybe he could have a gun, too.

Buck up, maybe he'll use his spark eating sword, sacrificing himself, and it'll be for absolutely nothing.


Actually that sounds like a really cool death, too cool for Drift.

What's all this "125" jank? Are they thinking about renumbering the series by counting up all their previous TF stuff? Would that even make 120ish comics?

I swear I have been consistently disappointed by IDW since they took Furman off G1. Sales rose for a bit w/ more G1 art (hardly Furman's fault), then dropped HARD when 7 issues went by without any story progression whatsoever. Literally the autobots and decepticons were in the same place and status in issue 8 that they were in issue 1! Then we moved on to "Ongoing" and it's continuing efforts to make Michael Bay's Transformers seem worthy of praise because it remembers what bumblebee transforms into from scene to scene when IDW can't.

I'd rather they actually did something to make Drift valuable rather than having him hang around in the background.

I don't care about the collected butthurt regarding the pointless hoohaah of the characters debut. Just have him do something already.

I remember counting it before, and yeah, it'll reach 125. There were a few issues on the margin that I can't remember if they were included or excluded (New Avengers crossover, Infestation, etc) but there's a way to get it up to 125.

The ideas certainly look interesting (though the Death of Optimus Prime is nothing new since, oh, 1986) but IDW has a recent track record of having ideas sound good in preview then underwhelming when hitting the page. The current storyline actually looks like there's some love and care into it, but "Revenge of the Decepticons" was such a go-nowhere nothing storyline that there really isn't any sense of buildup for it. And you can see that just by seeing how little comments there are in the comics discussions now...

They've left out both TF: Infestation and the New Avengers crossover, by my reckoning:

Infiltration #0-6 = 0-6
Stormbringer #1-4 = 7-10
Escalation #1-6 = 11-16
Megatron Origin #1-4 = 17-20
Devastation #1-6 = 21-26
Max Dinobots #1-5 = 27-31
AHM #1-16 = 32-47
Ongoing #1-31 = 38-78
Bumblebee #1-4 = 79-82
LS/Wreckers #1-5 = 83-87
Ironhide #1-4 = 88-91
Drift #1-4 = 92-95
Heart of Darkness #1-4 = 96-99
Spotlights ? 25 = 100-124
Transformers #125- = 125+

[Disclaimer: The "totalled" numbers aren't meant to say Spotlight: Shockwave is #100 and other such "out of sequence" stuff, it's just for ease of explanation!]

With #20 we are currently at 114 issues, well 113 since HoD didn't ship this week, so yeah the 10 issues of Chaos would give us 124.
