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.

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).

@  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.

@  TheMightyMol... : (25 July 2016 - 02:10 AM)

You should ask that in the TFWiki thread.

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.

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.

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.
