@  Whirl Maximus : (29 July 2016 - 01:20 PM)

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.

@  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).

Had to be asked. OK More than 40 Generations figures in 2013 is a huge number when you come down to it. Literally huge. So go at it. Can you name your top 40 existing characters (no particular order) you'd like to see reborn next year?

1) Grimlock
2) Slug
3) Swoop
4) Snarl
5) Sludge
6) Blitzwing
7) Trailbreaker
8) Gears
9) Hoist
10) Skids
11)Kickback
12) Bombshell
13) Shrapnel
14) Silverbolt
15) Sky Dive
16) Air Raid
17) Slingshot
18) Fireflight
19) G1 Arcee
20) Fortress Maximus
21) Chromedome
22) Scrounge (please?)
23) Macabre
24) Impactor
25) Grotusque
26) Hun-Grr
27) Blot
28) Sinnertwin
29) Rippersnapper
30) Cutthroat
31) Skorponok
32) Carnivac
33) Jhiaxus
34) Elita 1
35) Deathsaurus
36) Devcon
37) G1 Top Spin
38) G1 Twin Twist
39) Chop Shop
40) Venom


-ZacWilliam, god 40 is a hard list to fill, and I'm sure I left off a ton of good choices (especially big guys as i'd love Omega Supreme but not smaller than Leader)and yeah, I'm a G1 fanboy, no appologies there. What's your dream list look like?
Ever wonder about the speed of Turbofoxes?
Or the proverbial ailerons of Titanium Moosebots?

It would be completely unreasonable to expect forty new mold Deluxes. I seriously expect many of the forty if that number is accurate to be Cyberverse toys. And repaints from previous Generations toys plus repaints from other new molds yet to be announced.

Forty would be easy to fill but then I'd list some obscure characters few others care for.

I guess if I were to take my list and put it in order of OMG WANT, it would read...

01) Fortress Maximus
02) Trailbreaker
03) Soundwave
04) Laserbeak/Buzzsaw
05) Huffer
06) Gears
07) Rumble/Frenzy

Of course I'd love new Dinobots as well, but I put completing the 1984 cast + Fort ahead of that.

I know! Let's list our 40 favorite transformers! Brilliant! :/

The big question is what will they repaint/remold. I'd love a Jackpot from Prowl, a Ricochet from Jazz, and a REAL Roadrage/Swerve from Tracks. Purplestuff, Slicer, movie-esque Barricade from Prowl, and a half dozen other Classics/Universe/Generations autobot repaints. Including a junkion 2 pack w/ a more g1 inspired Wreckgar paintscheme. Sweeps.

If you want to know what my priority deluxe Generations wishlist is... I guess:
Blitzwing
Swoop
Slug/Slag
Snarl
(voyager) Sludge
(voyager) Grimlock
Gnaw/Sharkticons

clearly listing 40 is just obscene.

We know (ok, reasonably expect) the head remolds to be part of that so...

1) Kup remold (Swerve?)
2) Prime remold (Nemesis?)
3) Scourge remold (Ratbat?)
4) Jazz remold (uhhh?)
5) Perceptor remold (Reflector)
6) Lugnut (uhhh?)

Plus I figure a lot more are redecos/remolds of earlier molds. I'd be shocked if we even get 20+ new Generations molds in 2013.

Really anything I put down just sounds way too fanboy-y/delusional.
If I could walk into a store and buy a voyager Ultra Magnus and at least one, but preferably more, of The 13 I will be incredibly happy.
I'd want Ultra Magnus to be new and Aligned-y looking, and the The 13 should be one that doesn't have a toy already.


Also, I don't really see them putting out 40 deluxes in a year. At least not all in one line.
There has to be another size class.

Anybody as long as we get someone not from G1.

"Disabled people donít have special needs. We have very reasonable human needs. Our needs include freedom from abuse, violence, and mistreatment, the right to autonomy and self-direction, the right to represent ourselves, equal opportunity for education and employment, the right to accommodation, and societal inclusion and acceptance.

The need for accommodation isnít a ďspecial needĒ. Itís a basic human right. Itís a leveling of the playing field that allows us the same opportunities and chances as non-disabled people."

I can't believe I forgot Nightbeat!

I feel like that omission throws my whole list into chaos and doubt. I'm like the guy from Monty Python who got ejected off the bridge for misstating his favorite color. ;p

Seriously. Nightbeat is right behind "The rest of the 84 cast" and "all the Dinobots"on my top wish list.

And pre-planed Minerva repaint/remold please.


-ZacWilliam, yes 40 new mold Deluxes is rediculous, but that doesn't mean we can't have fun listing the 40 characters we'd love to see done. icon-hotrod.gif

Posted 11 February 2012 - 07:16 PM

1. Shockwave (A helicopter, a less flimsy-looking HISS Tank or hoverjet like DOTM Laserbeak would be nice)
2. Soundwave (A stealth drone or a tricked-out van would work)
3. Starscream (An F-22, as long as he's less boring than the Classics Seeker mold)
4. Red Alert (UT)
5. Starscream (Armada)
6. Megatron (Tank, can be colored like G2 or Classics)
7. Scourge (Nemesis Prime made from RTS Prime)
8. Swindle (Can be a new mold or a Hound retool)
9. Lockdown (The ROTF mold is good, but I'd like one with less panels)
10. Blitzwing
11. Jetfire (Armada)
12. Optimus Prime (Can be a new Deluxe firetruck, maybe?]
13. Ironhide (either a Humvee or a Movie-inspired pickup truck)
14. Flatline (A hearse, natch; this guy NEEDS a toy. And more appearances in fiction. A Classics-ization, but due to him modifying his own body, he's very lanky-looking and freaky.)
15. Nightbeat (new mold)
16. Megatron (Armada MOOSE)
17. Megatron (BW)
18. Ratchet (A new separate mold from Ironhide)
19. Blaster (Can be a Soundwave retool if Soundwave's a van)
20. Arcee (Preferably a bike, basically a Classics-ization of Prime Arcee)
21. Cosmos (Has to be a UFO, and has to be chubby.)
22. Barricade (Classics-ization of Movie Barricade)
23. Prowl (Retool of Barricade)
24. Sky-Byte (New mold for all the people who missed out on Botcon Sky-Byte; I didn't, but it'd be nice for there to be more Sky-Bytes for everyone)
25. Waspinator (Every joint is able to be detached and re-attached - just like in the show!)
26. Slipstream (Classics - turns into a Berkut)
27. Thundercracker (Transforms into a Cobra Rattler)
28. Skywarp (Transforms into an F-117 and comes with a cardboard stand that's essentially a set of stairs for him to push people down icon-fire.gif)
29. Springer
30. Optimus Primal
31. Sentinel Prime (Classics-ization of the DOTM version)
32. Bulkhead (Classics take on Animated Bulkhead)
33. Cannonball (New mold Amphibious Assault vehicle, or maybe a Bulkhead retool - like a bigger Breacher)
34. Whirl (A V-22)
35. Roadbuster (Basically a Warthog from Halo)
36. Rhinox
37. Orion Pax (A pick-up truck based on Alternators Optimus - has the IDW Pre-Prime Optimus head)
38. Galvatron (New mold that turns into a futuristic tank)
39. Jackpot (Nightbeat Retool)
40. Blackarachnia (A show-accurate representation of her original BW form)

Curious as to whether the repaint/remould would be Minerva or Siren (for the latter, packaged in car mode, it'd be a blue car and a silver car). Never likely to get a Siren otherwise, after all, and while Hasbro are slightly less gun-shy than they once were on the "OH NOES GIRLS!1" front, I'm not entirely sure they'd go out of their way to do one if there was an alternative.*

*No, Nightbeat and Siren weren't originally mouldmates, but they ARE similar cars associated with one another, and cases like Tracks/Wheeljack, Drift/Blurr & Bumblebee/Cliffjumper/Hot Shot show they're not shy about making a repaint/remould out of a character who originally wasn't one.

as for new stuff, i'd really like to see the dinobots all made, but i'd really prefer a voyager size class to be included so they could make sludge bigger. and if we're getting voyager class, i'd throw in bm tankor, bw rhinox, and tm megatron
