@  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)

@  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.

@  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).

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.

Pretty much... I mean, WCW is frequently on WWE Vintage Collection, WCW people and others are inducted into the WWE Hall of Fame...

Edit: Oh... and then, if you actually read the milestones, you'll find this:

QUOTE
On the final episode of WCW Monday Nitro, Sting faces his longtime rival, Ric Flair, for the last time. In a fitting bookend for both Nitro and WCW, Sting defeats Flair and the two competitors embrace after the match. Because WWE acquired WCW before this episode of Nitro, this match would mark the first and only time Sting has appeared on a WWE-produced broadcast.

Paul Heyman speaking on behalf of Brock Lesnar is a pretty good move. It'll keep Brock off TV so they can use him for PPV appearances.
Here's hoping he can keep it interesting.

It's gonna happen. Cena always has to go on last. He main evented a PPV called Elimination Chamber in a non Elimination Chamber match.

When you find yourself standing on the brink of surrender, know that many in the past faced trials such as your own, but overcame them with their great conviction.
No matter the greatness of your desperation, the failures of your efforts, or the injustice of your treatment, at least a few men have stared into the same challenges and emerged victorious from these tests.
Such men are not only a great source of inspiration, but also the very foundation upon which modern society rests.

I'm just really tired of the "Evil" Boss crap. I mean didn't we have decades of that from Vince. Now we have John "I know how to book but suck at finishes" Lauranitis giving us the "Evil" boss again. I'm sorry I don't give two jives about seeing him or hearing him. They are wasting valuable air time doing the same old thing. Brock was cool but unnecessary, a nice little obstacle for Cena to overcome (Although they should have had him Languish in mediocrity a little longer.) All WWE's good Ideas either end up running way to long or get rushed to a finish.

If you're going to be storytellers actually tell new stories or make the old stuff actually interesting. Lauranitis is a BAD Villain. Period.

Well, at the PPV we're going to find out if there's one key difference between Johnny Ace and the evil bosses before him (Vince, Bishoff, etc.) He may be able to do what they couldn't, which was back their mouths up in the ring. Vince was just a jacked old man. Johnny Ace had a legitimate career in Japan and was involved in a lot of great matches. Though having Dr. Death and Kenta Kobashi as tag team partners didn't hurt. Reports indicate he's taking this seriously and training in a ring. I bet you he has a better pro wrestling match with Cena than anyone expects.

As far as going on last, I highly doubt that. There's little chance that Daniel Bryan is beating Punk so I expect them to save that for last.

I agree, I'm sick of the "evil boss" storylines, too. That's why I (sort of) liked the Anonymous Raw GM (a bit... odd, but not quite evil, and not a lot of focus on them), and hoped Teddy Long would win at 'Mania.

It was great while Vince did it... and Bischoff did it and Russo did it and Heyman did it and Stephanie did it and Vickie did it and Shane did it and so on and so forth...

It's something I'd like to see given a rest for a good while. I miss when you only saw the bosses, like President Jack Tunney or Gorilla Monsoon, when there really needed to be intervention.

I swear, when Laurinaitis hit Cena with the mic and said he would be the opponent at "the Over Limit" PPV, I could just hear "It was me, Cena! It was me all along!" going through my head...
