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)

its the rye of the kaiser its the thrill of the the fight

@  ▲ndrusi : (25 July 2016 - 05:18 PM)

So stuff's really heating up now, it's the part of the Arc where we get the huge awesome fight, aka "The Best Part."


HIGHLIGHT to view:
Oh, and Sanji can fly now. Awesome.

Everything in this last chapter was amazing as they started the 'reveals', but yeah. The bit with HIGHLIGHT to view:
Sanji Skywalking was the only thing that actually caught me completely off guard. Hody has completely lost control of the situation, and he knows it.

I'd been following the Funi releases but as those have dried up with nothing new announced I've gotten tired of waiting after several months without new One Piece to watch. Needless to say, I've missed this show and am making up for lost time. icon-ironhide.gif Once I get to ep 307 I'll switch over to Hulu and watch the subs they have there.

Funi's up to, what, G8 right now? At least, I know that was set to release last April, I haven't checked since then.

Yeah, the manga is moving along nicely now. HIGHLIGHT to view:
Brook's skills are nicely developed, and I like how they "backstoried" Sanji's new skill, that should come in handy. Zoro's was neat enough, and I'm loving the work Franky's done on the ship. icon-hotrod.gif

Yeah, the last "new" release was G8. Funi has been re-releasing older episodes in 25 ep sets. I wonder if once they catch up they'll start up again.

Funimation hasn't announced a 4th season yet. They say they're in talk with Toei.

This week's chapter was so full of SWEET! I fanboyed like Luffy and Chopper at Franky's new vehicles, tho I forsee not alot of opportunities to use them. We've only seen the Mini-merry and Shark Sub once each (not including anime fillers) and the Waver has been nearly forgotten.

Also, if you're keeping tabs with the Anime, this week they went out and actually animated the part where Luffy and Jinbei visit Marineford again. I thought that was pretty cool.

Thanks for the reminder! I haven't watched this week's episode yet, I should do that now.

Yeah, the anime tends to be pretty good about filler, when and where they can animating offscreen happenings.

Although I've not been watching it, i probably should get caught back up, but I'm just kinda waiting for the post timeskip anime and sort of restarting there.

I honestly haven't felt this thrilled since Impel Down. I miss new techniques and crazy villain groups like CP9. The fishmen make good foes, even if it appears that they aren't capable of standing toe-to-toe with the Strawhats.

It seems like this arc is mostly supposed to show just how crazy strong the Strawhats have gotten for their 2 years. Frankly I'd have preferred them curb stomping an admiral or two to demonstrate that, but this works too.

Some are under the impression that the Fishman Island arc isn't close to being done. Hody's band of misfits seem as if they'll be beyond pushovers for our heroes. There's likely a bigger baddie out there who has yet to reveal themself (My bets are on Aladdin showing up again, or Tom's brother who was introduced and vanished)

My hope is that after Fishman Island, the Straw Hats end up somewhere near Mariejoa. Even though that's probably going to be towards the end of the series, I'd love to see them tear up all those elitist jerks right where it hurts.

Right, but he also couldn't control it before. If he's going into it willingly and with what he called himself, I'm excited at the notion of 'smart hulk', so to speak.
