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).

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.

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)

Just wondering, I have only been doing a bit of recon. Playing as a bandit, its just as awesome as the first one, though the ragdoll effect when you kill things is annoying.

I have absolutely zero interest in this game. Anything with the draw point of "It's hugging super hard" just seems so lacking in fun.

It's "skillful hard", though, not "cheap hard".

The only reason I'm not playing this is that I've not really gotten around to playing Demons Souls yet. But barely 20 minutes in, and I could tell that I was going to love the game, and I'm no "hardcore" gamer, by any means. It's all about tactics, and learning from your mistakes, and picking yourself up and doing better the next time. If you die, you're always very aware that it's your fault, for rushing in unprepared or being too aggressive, or whatever. It's never about the game pulling cheap-ass crap on you and being unfair.

Loved Demon Souls and I love Dark Souls. I haven't fully played it since: school, work and few other games to play first don't allow any more free time to spare to it. But it will definitely be played to death by me.

Game is good. Like Demon Souls the design is clever, the levels are gorgeous, and of course die and learn. I had to remember how to play it but starting to get my groove again.

Gonna sink a lot of time in it I think. The pacing so far has been really good, the combat is tense and very gratifying and now you can jump icon-hotrod.gif

Archon, there are times in Demon Souls that the game is just cheap, but you can fight fire with fire. For me though, that was part of the fun, figuring out when to just be a cheating jerk to beat something, because, the developers (accidentally or intentionally) let you get away with it. And honestly for all the times I got pounded into the ground by a couple "peons" I didn't feel bad at all about it.

I have been playing this game and so far I love it.
Does anyone see City-Swimmer? Is he gliding beneath the silver water? Is he creeping 'round a corner, hugging a wall, silent as a shadow in the dark?

Any luck Deathblade? I finished off the Gaping last night, on to Blightown I guess... We'll see how it plays versus swamp hell from Demon souls. I rolled the Capra pretty easily, but I think I'm over equipped for my soul level. I've been taking the game nice and slow.

I beat the capra demon several days ago, but I am stuck on the gaping dragon. Well, not really stuck...I am trying to beat it with soiltare and lautrec, but it takes too long. They end up getting killed, I could beat it by myself, but I am trying to forward their side stories. I am looking to go to dark root forest to power up my bandit now. Then going back to gaping demon. I got cursed once by the basililisk, man that sucked! So did the method for removing it.

Darkroot is really good for grinding souls, even if you can't kill em you can make em run off the cliff. I got to the first bonfire in Blight town before I turned around. Need to power up a bow to be able to clear out toxin throwers. Ick those suck. The curse is crummy but it just made me feel like I was playing Demon souls again, half hp and all icon-hotrod.gif

Dusted Blighttown and The great grey wolf sif. What a great boss. The best in the series so far for me. Partially the way it moves really remind me of my cat but awesome. On to Sen's fortress. Felt good to ring the second bell.

Liberal use of the White Soapstone thingamy is helpful for that. Just make sure you get the Gargoyle Tail Halberd. It's quite useful.
