Maybe like how Megaempress and her 4 Guards showed up so many male Cybertrons and Destrons. *snerk*

@  SHIELD Agent 47 : (29 September 2016 - 03:00 PM)

Maybe as a female EDC officer who actually kicks his ass for a change.

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.

@  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.

@  Robowang : (27 September 2016 - 07:12 AM)

Dirty Jerk Warts?

@  Broadside : (27 September 2016 - 07:05 AM)

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)

DJW was mouthing off about the art for Revolution the other day too, doesn't entirely surprise.

@  zephyrX9 : (26 September 2016 - 08:05 PM)

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.

@  Touch My Thighs : (26 September 2016 - 07:43 PM)

Isn't there a G5?

Gen3 would look like Gen2, except produced in the earlier 2000s so I'm going to assume that rather than 90s as heck, it would instead look Grimdark as heck. Everyone would be gritty realistic repaints with ridiculous battle damage and any new molds would have scowls all the time

Well that's why I answered the way I did. Generation 2 as a toy line was a lot of G1 guys painted in crazy colors.. but as a story that was being told the Generation 2 Transformers were on Off Shoot race of Transformers who considered the Generation 1 guys to be outdated ancestors.

Hmm

Okay, you know what? Let's do this logically.

G1 to G2:

Recut rebroadcast cartoon

Hideous garish recolours of old toys and a few new ones

Short-lived comic-book which was grimdark and gritty and EXTREME



So then G3 would be


Completely new cartoon that contradicts previous shows and features characters acting wildy different (Starscream is loyal,the contructicons ditch the decepticons and join the autobots after two episodes, the Dinobots are smart, Soundwave talks like a normal guy)

Reserved, dulled military-style repaints with decals and serial numbers, and uses soft pastel colours for highlights

long-running comic book that is pleasant and positive, with a relaxed pace and a very slow, deliberate mystery plot

Funny, I was just wondering that earlier-- glad this topic was made to save me the trouble.

It might seem simple at first, but then, how does one count concurrent generations, i.e. Beast Wars and Machine Wars?

I guess that since G2 continued G1, then sequential lines would be different generations as well-- Beast Wars and Beast Machines, for example, and AEC would be three separate generations as well.

rid is H1

Armada is Ut1
Energon is UT2
Cybertron is UT3

Prime is G1

then we have Lam1-3 which are the FU-niverse

(see how the 2 kinda g1 based parallel universes are lettered on either side of G icon-arcee.gif )

the G3 toyline also includes any 'Universe' toy because of how Beastmachines ended

Most of the fandoms that use "Generation" as a name for their toys tend to do it as a line-wide shift of engineering.

For instance, GI Joe is G1 until Valor vs Venom happened, and the basic buck and sculpting style changed. 25th Anniversary is G3.

We apparently ignore misnomers like GI Joe EXTREME, though.
