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.

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).

@  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.

I just got a bunch from Wal-Mart Thursday night and I have just started opening them up and trying different combos. So far I really like Crankcase w/ Destrons and Sledge's minicon. The translucent purple really adds a nice splash of color to an otherwise boring color scheme.

Any suggestions for other combos?

On a whim, I partnered Beacon (Steelshot's partner) with robot mode Stakeout. I attached him upside down to the vehicle mode Mini-Con port, with his searchlight-knees pointed over Stakeout's shoulder, giving him a... um... rescue lamp? Well, it seems to fit, anyway. It helps that that puts his gun arm in position to point forward.

Huffer + Rallybots = AWESOME.

Also Skyburst or Darkstream + the Aerialbot Drones from Crankcase and Stakeout.

I really like Sledge with Steamhammer's drones; his own arms become extra weapon arms in combined mode. Also, Icepick looks really good with Crankcase's drones.

I tried, but PCC hits me with an obsessive compulsion only possessed by 8 year old boys and anal retentive fanboys.

cross-team mixing? Preposterous!
cross-faction mixing? Oh hell naw!

Makes me wish they at least left the drones unmarked as far as faction symbols go.

If you can't even convince yourself to mix them between teams, I don't see how not marking their factions would help you. icon-depth.gif

I did a few.

Darkstream with the Destrons (the red and grey on Darkstream really complements the duller tones of the Destrons)
Crankcase with the Destructicons (IMO it gives the whole team a "Mad Max" feel)
Heavytread and Groundspike with the Protectobots
Stakeout with Beacon (I'll have to try Andrusi's robot-mode-shouler-lights deal)
Mudslinger with his PCC head out and Razorbeam to be a minotaurbot and his axe.

While Skyhammer is an awful figure on his own, he makes for a very nice torso. His colors match up to the Crankcases drones, and slap Darkstream on there for a bit more blue and he looks menacing!

My favorite limb set is... I have no names for them...
The plow fronted destruction leg
the a-10 jet arm
the drill armed construction arm/dual missile platform arm
the steamroller leg/red racecar leg

I tend to leave them hooked up to Crankcase.

HeavyTread would seem to be the intended recipient, though I think Steelshot and Bombshock will work well too. Sadly, Heavy tread is the last of the non-redeco PCCs I do not have icon-screamer.gif
