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.

@  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).

@  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.

Do kids watch this show? Did it teach them that sometimes you have to steal? And that hunting is wrong?


Aladdin has a whole song dedicated to the first moral....


Yes. Bambi has a whole movie dedicated to the other. But it was just kinda striking to me.

Episode was kinda "meh" with me. Nice to get the origin of the Thunderkittens, but what I want more than anything is to see them utuilizing more of their bags or tricks in battle.

Anyway, it was satisfying to finally see Cheetara lose her cool, or at least come really darn close to it.

"I think they want us to fight to the death." is my new favorite line from this show.

Yeah, that was a nice moment.

They shouldn't have let the kittens watch the Hunger Games.

What I especially liked is that this episode is basically simultaneous with the previous one. Nice bit of continuity/timing.

It occurs to me that, if we ever see the kittens' family again, they might not get a warm welcome. That's if they're still there. I shudder to think what could happen to those outlying homesteads now that Thundera itself is gone. And with people like Atticus and Kaynar out there. . .

Was the tornado that killed the Thunderkittens' father the same one from the Panthro origin episode and the Petlar episode?

Nice nod of continuity, if so.

Tornado shouldn't have killed pops if pops had half a brain.

Instead of wasting time trying to run in the same path as the twister, and try to climb over a thick tree trunk, he should just have run to the left or right of the path, so he's no longer in the funnel's path.

...oh right, cartoon, drama, lol.

Also:

The kid's family brings a large plot hole to the show. If they really existed prior to the kids going to Thundera, how come the kids never once asked to visit their old home to make sure their family is okay and take them with them (or find a safe spot for them), or gone to bury them, if the reptiles killed them on the way to Thundera.

I mean, it seems that the family home was a very long way away from Thundera, so there's a good chance they survived the invasion.

It's a good question, but not a plot hole. Even when this week's plot stirred up the memories in them, they still didn't share the story with Panthro and Cheetarah. They don't want to talk about it.

And maybe their home is in the opposite direction from the Tower of Omens and they've never been anywhere close to it since.

You don't live anywhere near Tornado Alley, do you? Tornadoes don't simply travel in straight lines. They swerve, they jump, they change speeds and directions, etc. Trying to guess where a tornado is going and simply moving someplace else isn't just stupid, it's suicidal. The ONLY reasonable survival tactic is to get to the nearest shelter as fast as possible. That's what he was trying to do. No unnecessary cartoon drama here.

I am rather disappointed thus far that they haven't done anything about the refugee/survivor issue. At least they could do some lip-service to how others escaped or were all hunted to extinction or something. I dislike the implication that there's been a full blown holocaust without addressing it directly, but that's just me really.

I did like that the kids have other siblings out there though. At least in theory.

I agree that you can't predict the path of the storm, but on the other hand he could certainly ran around the tree rather than trying to climb it.

While you can't predict the path of the storm, you can hedge your bets on getting out of the IMMEDIATE PATH of it, then hunkering down somewhere safe when you're not going to get tornado-nabbed. The kid's dad should have moved out of the obvious, immediate path of the storm by going off to one of the two sides of it, then finding safety.

Looks like this week's episode deals with that. Also introduces us to a long awaited character!
