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.

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.

@  ▲ndrusi : (24 July 2016 - 07:01 PM)

I thought King Kong '05 was pretty great! I just wish I hadn't watched it as a double feature with that movie about the island with the giant bugs.

@  tffan01 : (24 July 2016 - 04:46 PM)

yeah it was long as hell, it took me several days to finish it.

@  Paladin : (24 July 2016 - 11:58 AM)

maybe this new one won't take half a day to watch all the way through...

@  tffan01 : (24 July 2016 - 11:00 AM)

I believe this new Kong movie will not be as good as the 2005 one.

According to fiction, all jet formers can fly in bot mode. I never liked the idea of magically flying robots, but thr aerial bots kibble forms kind of jet pack.

I'm pretty sure the Aerialbots couldn't fly in robot mode, or at least were never shown to, in the cartoon. Superion could, but not the individuals.

They're giant robots and I'm a squishy human. If they want to fly in robot mode, I'm not going to stop them.

I'm pretty sure I remember them doing so in some episodes as well...

Of course, come Season 3, it seemed like everyone could, except when they couldn't.

Everybody take an Aerialbots episode from the wiki at random and watch. First person to find them flying in bot mode when not in outer space ( I'm looking at you season 3) wins a virtual cookie.

The Dreamwave MTMTE bios for all the Aerialbots except Fireflight mentions they can fly in robot mode, which is a rare ability among Autobots. So 4 of them can fly as robots in that continuity.

The Tech Spec, MTMTE and Transformers Universe entry for Superion says he can fly at 800 MPH. So that's pretty much all G1/G2 continuities.

Some of the question probably stems from that time Silverbolt transformed to blast something in mid-air and then began falling without attempting to fly. I think he said "Goodbye cruel world!" But one could assume this was because he was so petrified of heights that he couldn't think straight.

Just watched Key to Vector Sigma.

Silverbolt definately CANNOT fly there. He falls, as said above, when he turns into robot mode and would have died if Slingshot hadn't swooped in in jet mode and caught him.


-ZacWilliam, the Cartoon always had the strongest Autobots can't fly rule anyway.

The rule wasn't that strong, ZacWilliam. It developed over time.

Anyway, I just recently re-watched the season 2 eps featuring the Aerialbots, and I don't recall them flying in their robot modes. That said, I wasn't looking for it, so I could have missed a one-off incident.

Yeah, MTMTE was really inconsistent as to whether or not the Autobots could fly.

Yeah they can't fly. The only Autobots that could fly in the G1 cartoon (consistantly) were the Dinobots (because the majority of their alt modes were so slow).

Not counting things like Sky Lynx which is obviously and exception.
