@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.

@  Broadside : (26 July 2016 - 03:59 AM)

"Beast Wars anniversary"? Highly dubious.

@  Patchouli Kn... : (26 July 2016 - 12:16 AM)

How come everybody wanna keep it like the kaiser?

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

Mayhem is, somewhat ironically, one of the least random parts of the board. I really don't know how that happened.

@  NotVeryKnightly : (25 July 2016 - 06:34 AM)

Not even close.

@  MEDdMI : (25 July 2016 - 05:51 AM)

What, Mayhem isn't random enough???

@  NotVeryKnightly : (25 July 2016 - 04:02 AM)

This place never feels random enough in that respect.

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

I thought that was snarking at random strangers without fear of retribution.

@  NotVeryKnightly : (24 July 2016 - 07:22 PM)

Topic-specific threads are the main feature of messageboards like this, you know.

@  NotVeryKnightly : (24 July 2016 - 07:21 PM)

You should ask that in the TFWiki thread.

@  tffan01 : (24 July 2016 - 07:18 PM)

there's a pewdiepie video promoting Transformers Earth Wars and it is an official promotion video, does this mean he should get a tfwiki page?

@  ▲ndrusi : (24 July 2016 - 07:01 PM)

I thought King Kong '05 was pretty great! I just wish I hadn't watched it as a double feature with that movie about the island with the giant bugs.

@  tffan01 : (24 July 2016 - 04:46 PM)

yeah it was long as hell, it took me several days to finish it.

@  Paladin : (24 July 2016 - 11:58 AM)

maybe this new one won't take half a day to watch all the way through...

@  tffan01 : (24 July 2016 - 11:00 AM)

I believe this new Kong movie will not be as good as the 2005 one.

@  Pennpenn : (24 July 2016 - 08:52 AM)

You'd figure something like that would get a pass, some kind of grandfather clause since the name is already intractably established.

@  Paladin : (24 July 2016 - 08:15 AM)

"DS-1 Orbital Battle Station." That's the official classification...

@  Bass X0 : (24 July 2016 - 08:04 AM)

now that Hasbro can't use the word "Death" on the packaging of their toys, what will they call the Death Star?

@  Whirl Maximus : (24 July 2016 - 07:44 AM)

It's in the comic con trailer and seems like a hideous waste. I guess the show makers have no reverence for Doctor Who like they do Star Trek.

@  Bass X0 : (24 July 2016 - 04:20 AM)

Which is the height of quality for Family Guy jokes...

@  Whirl Maximus : (24 July 2016 - 04:00 AM)

David Tennent has done a cutaway for Family Guy. Don't get to excited it was a fart joke.

@  Broadside : (23 July 2016 - 03:17 PM)

"Micronauts: Starring psychic Peter Quill and E123-Omega".

@  Broadside : (23 July 2016 - 03:16 PM)

Ooh, sounds neat.

@  Sockie : (23 July 2016 - 01:16 PM)

Yeah, the first was definitely the weakest of the three. Really looking forward to the next issue; judging by the preview for it, it's delving into Karza and Shazraella's past and Microspace's exact political situation.

@  Broadside : (23 July 2016 - 01:11 PM)

I was ambivalent about the first issue, but the quality stepped up in the second and again in the third.

@  Sockie : (23 July 2016 - 10:37 AM)

And yes, Micronauts is great! I enjoyed the first three issues quite a lot.

@  Sockie : (23 July 2016 - 10:36 AM)

Cave Carson looks really cool as well, so I can't be too saddened about that.

@  Broadside : (23 July 2016 - 06:29 AM)

I ended up checking it out, and it's pretty damn neat.

Obviously spoilers for those who care, but I was wondering...

On page 13 there is a scene with Optimus Prime talking to Magnum. Suddenly Dion runs up to them to report about the Decepticons. Dion of course won't recognize Optimus as Orion, and you might even say Dion has been upgraded so much Optimus wouldn't recognize him, but then Magnum says "How many, Dion?" with Optimus standing there.

So does Optimus know Dion lived now?

Also Deathsaurus makes the comment that half Megatron's troops are "brainwashed Autobots", and while it's possible those are the background filler characters, anyone wonder if maybe any of the main Decepticon troops of Megatron were once Autobots? Was there ever a day when maybe Soundwave, Thundercracker or Shockwave was an Autobot?

BTW - Anyone else thinking Magnum will get damaged and rebuilt using an Autobot warrior upgrade like Prime, and become Ultra Magnus?

Yup, I always figured Magnum = Magnus.

Deathsaurus survived his beatdown, I like that.

Haven't read it, but wouldn't the "brainwashed Autobots" be a reference to the Robo-Smasher? One of the Constructicons origins.

Yes, it was a Robo-Smasher reference, but the Constructicons were never Autobots, they were always Constructicons. SO I figured they didn't count. The only Autobot who was Robo-Smashed was the Gyronian Sentry. I wonder if anyone else used to be an Autobot.

It's not like this is canon for the G1 cartoon continuity, y'know. TFCC comics are pretty much fanfics that gotten lucky and are published at a convention, nothing more.

They're official. Fun Pub works directly with Hasbro to make sure that all of the stories fit Hasbro concerns. Regardless if the "story" is comic, prose or even just a bio, Hasbro has had a say in each and every one.

But your point about "canon for the G1 cartoon" stands. The Wings-verse is not set directly in the Sunbow cartoon universe. They're simply similar continuities.

Really classy. Don't think for a moment that Hasbro doesn't likely go over them with a fine toothed comb. I'll gladly take a lot of what Fun Pub publishes over a lot of what IDW has given us.

Also Forest Lee used to write the Club stories and he worked/works for Hasbro. So you're second point is uninformed.

IIRC, The Secret of Omega Supreme says there were a bunch. The comic says there were more Sentries, at least--they're called a "sentry team" and we're told "they all failed to report for duty." Presumably this is because Megatron robo-smashed them all.

TSOOS has always been an amusing episode for me. The theme tells us that the Autobots are trying to "destroy the evil forces of the Decepticons", and then the show itself says that some of the Decepticons are brainwashed citizens/Autobots. Someone didn't think about the implications of that... icon-fire.gif

Yeah, it's not THE continuity, but it is A continuity.
