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.

@  Whirl Maximus : (27 July 2016 - 04:17 PM)

the wind blew the sun into the river. honest!

@  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)

Got to see Weird Al perform Dare to be Stupid in his set last night! That was a nice surprise.

@  LBD "Nyt... : (27 July 2016 - 01:40 AM)

TMW you see a bunch of people have liked something you posted while you were away, and you're like "what did I even say?!"

@  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).

@  The Doctor Who : (26 July 2016 - 07:11 AM)

@Patchy 'cause people like how the kaiser rolls!

@  MEDdMI : (26 July 2016 - 05:47 AM)

I'm officially addicted to the Comics theme. Every other themes are dull and boring now, I can't stand to look at them for more than a few posts.

@  ▲ndrusi : (25 July 2016 - 08:35 PM)

beast wars dicketeth anniversary

@  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.

@  Telly : (25 July 2016 - 05:21 PM)

  • Fair warning that this is the panel that usually includes a "no photography" slideshow. We're going to try to bring it to you live, but if Hasbro says no devices, we'll have to get you a report after it's over.
  • UPDATE (1:09pm PST) No devices. Denied! Daytonus has promised us a report immediately following. Sorry guys, I wanted the live coverage too. icon-screamer.gif

The Saturday panel is more-or-less for the stuff on the shelves/in the pipeline. Goes roughly 6 months out.

This is the panel for wowing you with stuff that's often not quite that far along, but you're likely to want hard. Last year, this panel is where we first heard about most of the Generations/RTS stuff like Lugnut and Perceptor and all that--things that were only released (or "released") just recently.

Oh, the poor fans. They'll have to wait an hour to get their information for free instead of immediately.

"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."

Those five people who have never been to, or heard of Botcon? No pictures. Ever. Everything takes pictures now, so no everything.

This is a treat for the die-hard fans that actually stayed on Sunday, and is traditionally where the best reveals are. It's no surprise it's no-photos, no-devices.

Hey, any of you guys remember last Sunday's panel, when they revealed Lugnut, and some idiot shouted "GLORIOUS" at the top of his lungs abotu seven times?

That was me icon-fire.gif

Transformers is a brand that really has something for everyone. We are a darn lucky fandom.

Yeah, I don't blame Hasbro for wanting to keep the special slideshow for those present... well, special. They have to balance their desires to do cool things for us (the fandom) against the levels of security and secrecy required of being a business.

I'm impatient and want my reveals NOW, but the previous years have shown that Hasbro can't be nice about it. If they want to prevent leaks, they have to shut it all down... and even then...

Wooo! New Thirteen member!
Also glad to see Nexus. I was actually a little afraid they were going to dump him and come up with someone new.
Also, whoever the Beastformer of The 13 is better not turn into a real animal.


And I was right about them making separate MMOs for different markets.
Kind of want to play both. Although, I'm more excited for the Jagex one.

edit: From what we saw of Prima and what I've heard of the others I kind of hope those guys get another slight redesign before they show up anywhere.
I'm ok with them using the Prime aesthetic. I just want it to be a bit more obvious they they're Transformers.

Some of those were good questions.
Like confirming that characters from the "aligned" continuity will be appearing transmedia.

edit:
I can understand the The 13 stuff being like the pre-LOTR stuff, but I still would like them in some physical form.
Anything would be nice, even Kreons.

While I'm pleased to finally get it flatly-stated that "aligned" is not "multiverse"... "aligned" seems anything BUT.

It's all one big story in several parts that don't necessarily fit together, it seems... so something like a comic universe, I guess, where each title has their own thing going on that technically happens in/effects the others, but doesn't necessarily HAVE to (outside of "events" of course)?

Seems like trading one concept of multiple continuities for another is all it really boils down to.

Aligned is a separate multiverse from the previous multiverse, as I read it.
