After the season finale where RM Corp found a way to make thinking Bots, I was hoping for a continuation of the story where Paradim learned the hard way the downside of Bots that can say, "No."

@  Rycochet : (28 September 2016 - 09:40 AM)

I liked Phantom 2040 more.

@  Blues : (27 September 2016 - 05:08 PM)

I LOVE BOT MASTER SO MUCH. Too bad the toys sucked. I even own jungle fiver. I love him so much, but he can barely stand on his own.

Ninjzz? That's an unfortunate name.

Also I thought Fico Ossio was quite nice on Revolutions.

@  Rycochet : (27 September 2016 - 04:36 PM)

You know the planet is in a jam, a diabolical plan of only one man. Louis Leon Paradim an international punk, and his army of 3As are his piece of junk.

@  Telly : (27 September 2016 - 04:26 PM)

for the longest time i thought jungle fiver was called jungle fiBer

@  Bass X0 : (27 September 2016 - 04:21 PM)

Does anybody remember the cartoon Bots Master? I enjoyed the show but looking back on it, most of the robot designs were lame. The only cool designs were Jungle Fiver and Ninjzz although the toys were nothing compared to Transformers of course. I thought the main human characters were decent enough for a show about robots. 

@  Verity Carlo : (27 September 2016 - 02:43 PM)

Social media is the worst thing to happen to fandom, you can now see people whose work you like being jerks or shills on a daily basis, which is worse than a bad interview or two.

Also, I guess he hates IDW Soundwave for not being an emotionless brick like the cartoon version? Man. Any enjoyment of Animated in future is going to be tainted for me by the fact that DJW is the worst kind of boring Geewunner.

@  Broadside : (27 September 2016 - 07:04 AM)

He also hates Action Man for no apparent reason other than "I don't know who this is and I don't care to find out". Which isn't fair, because Ian is the best character in IDW.

@  Jalaguy : (27 September 2016 - 06:47 AM)

Sipher made a sarcastic remark about Sakamoto's skeeviness. Derrick called him an a**hole, and insulted his art, which was a low, unnecessary blow.

@  Pennpenn : (26 September 2016 - 03:49 AM)

I've had versions where the issue doesn't come up (or at least doesn't come up in the part I notice the most), but the version that got remastered for Bluray and DVD releases have it.

@  Nevermore : (26 September 2016 - 02:05 AM)

I initially misheard "flying tools of torment" as "we're flyin' into some torment".

@  NotVeryKnightly : (26 September 2016 - 01:08 AM)

If it's a problem with all released versions, maybe the original audio source was itself damaged?

@  Pennpenn : (25 September 2016 - 09:30 PM)

I wish they'd relase a remastered version that fixed the audio and included at least had an option to have the text crawl rather than the credits at the start.

@  Telly : (25 September 2016 - 09:27 PM)

tryin to buy the movie from amazon for $20-ish. the price of it has been fluctuating like crazy. not a day has gone by that it hasnt dropped to one price and then gone back up a few hours later. never seen a price fluctuate so much

@  Pennpenn : (25 September 2016 - 07:57 PM)

Then again, a lot of versions of the movie had pretty bad sound quality, even the most recent blu-rays mess it up in places, so it's not as much our fault if we misheard stuff.

@  Arazyr : (25 September 2016 - 07:28 PM)

When I first heard it, half of it may as well have been in a foreign language, for all I could make out. (Of course, I can say that about most music...)

@  Pennpenn : (25 September 2016 - 07:14 PM)

I can't remember entirely, and I can't "hear" anything but the actual lyrics now, but I remember "I am born to hurt you, I'll break the boundless sky" as how my brain parsed the first words.

@  Nevermore : (25 September 2016 - 07:01 PM)

So what did you hear?

@  Pennpenn : (25 September 2016 - 06:39 PM)

I almost completely misinterpreted the lyrics for that song for ages, and when I did find out what they were I thought my idea of the lyrics was better.

@  Nevermore : (25 September 2016 - 06:29 PM)

So apparently the 2016 remake of "Instruments of Destruction" is out. I'm still waiting for an Amazon download to become available, but the clips I heard thus far sound cool. They're using the uncensored lyrics!

FoC Combaticons - Individual Toy Repaint Ideas?

After all the ideas about whom Bruticus should be repainted into on the other thread (Ruination, Computron, even Turbomaster was mentioned!) I have got to thinking, maybe we need to forget combining and just look at the individual characters.
They could be repainted into quite a few other characters - and sure, they would still combine, meaning interchangeability with Bruticus.

So, here are a few ideas:

-Vortex into Spinister. The toy transforms almost exactly the same way as G1 Spinister, making it easy to maintain the colors on bot and alt. modes. Ditch the swords and add one (or two) of the Prime weapon mini-cons, and add a new head, and he'd be perfect.

-Brawl into Snaptrap. This has been suggested by someone already, just picking it up again. The dual guns work perfectly, and a heavily armored tank is what I imagine Snaptrap's original alt. mode has always been on Cybertron. I doubt a new head would be even needed.

-Brawl into Quake. He was single-barrelled, but otherwise the body would work, with a new head and a targetmaster mini-con.

-Swindle into Ironfist. Add a new head, and a gun that hommages the big ammo disk on his Lightformer cannon, and he'd look fine.

-Onslaught into Kup. Yeah, call me crazy, but if you remove the dual gun, he looks quite like a cybertronian pickup truck - and in robot mode he even has the truck front as the chest and the rear as the legs, like the G1 Kup toy. Just add a new head, and a different weapon.

FoC Blast Off is a space shuttle with a nose-as-chest transformation that also becomes someone's right arm. In other words, he's Raker.

Snaptrap was mine, from WFC multiplayer. I also had a Dirt Boss (Cybertron-style) and a Clench from Onslaught's model at various times.

The main thing I learned from WFC was that nearly everyone looks awesome in Seacon colors.

I'd like those of course, but I'd hope that Hasbro would give them doublr Targetmasters if they did the repaint.

I also wouldn't mind someone repainting them all as Autobot. Maybe even all homage to G1 Micromasters or Pretenders.

Or even more obscure guys... yeah, throw rocklords at me, but I'd love a Dualor repaint from Brawl.

And yes, Clench is a good idea. Onslaught is kinda Clench-y.

I would want the five Combaticon molds to be repainted for a Botcon box-set one year along with a Voyager from the other faction. I think it would be cool if the five Deluxes in a boxset could actually combine. Something people wanted from the five Animated Stunticons.

I think I'd quite like Battle Gaia the most since the five components don't have characterisation meaning they are blank slates for FP to do with as they wish. They are semi-obscure, but even if you don't feel anything towards the original Battle Gaia (and many people won't), I'm sure the prospect of being able to form a combiner would make him desirable. Plus the Voyager should be someone very well known and desirable too. Doesn't even have to have a Cybertronian mode.

Just because you can't win doesn't mean you stop working.

Why do you say that? Its common for characters to get more than one mold these days. Another Guzzle toy could happen. And I didn't like the Commander mold that much either.

I think whoever the mold will be repainted into will be part of the same team though instead of being seperate unrelated individuals.

I dunno. To me, Brawl's head already looks pretty close to Ironfist's. Especially if you consider it a meshing of its various designs with FoC. And he has the giant cannons on the back of his alt mode.

So I'd like Brawl as Ironfist and Swindle as Trailbreaker. Keeping the current heads.

yea, a Valdigus/BattleGaia/Ruination set seems the best use.

Or, because this is the kind of guy I am, a theme set

Vortex as Coptur (Spinning blades on the arms, we're practically there already)
Swindle as Creeper
Onslaught as Tank(or) (Blue deco can double as a Gobots and a BW homage)
Brawl as Treads
BlastOff as ... I guess Fitor? Pincer? Some renegade jet.

Or heck, let's go for broke:
Vortex - Rotorstorm
Swindle - Ironfist
Onslaught - Pyro
Brawl - Guzzle
BlastOff - ... (Suggestions?)

Onslaught to Impactor - Big guns ground vehicle

I doubt this is possible due to lack of head clearance, but I could see Swindle being a decent Trailbreaker, with the appropriate head and projector (which is what I doubt would have clearance)

Plus Swindle's already tan. Doing that toy in peach or whatever isn't really much of a redeco.

With new heads, I could see them repaint Onslaught, Swindle and Vortex into Hot Spot, First Aid and Blades, then just make 2 new molds for Groove and Streetwise.

Blast Off could be recolored into one of the Aerialbots like Air Raid.

Swindle would look good as Tracks. If you deny the combined mode.

I like the Brawl as Snaptrap idea.


Althought I wouldn't mind Desert camo repaints as both versions of Armorhide both the brown and blue camo.


Too bad Vortex is basically Rotor with tan instead of blue. That would have been a nice recolor.
