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.

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)

Although this is odd to me, since I'm fairly sure they are/were good friends.

@  Rycochet : (27 September 2016 - 07:15 AM)

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.

Oof.

@  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)

If anyone cares, it turns out TakaraTomy uploaded their TV commercial for the Prime toy-line last weekend, showing (briefly) Soundwave, Arcee (with pink blade Mini-Con!) And Bulkhead. (with his wrecking-ball Mini-Con)


Being part of any fandom is fundamentally embarassing.

I wish the US advertisers would use stop-motion for their toy advertisements. I would actually watch TV if that much effort was put into commercials.

I don't know if they legally can in the US. I seem to remember a lawsuit or something over the old Micro Machines commercials, which had stop-motion cars driving around until idiot parents complained that the actual toys didn't magically drive by themselves, go up ramps, or make turns.

Then again, even before this happened the US G1 commercials didn't have stop-motion, but the awesome animation made specifically for the commercials made up for it as far as I'm concerned.

The Kre-O adverts are stop motion and they are awesome. I don't think they're screened on TV though.

Yeah, but... I've been coming to discover that much of the toy market of the 80's was, to be blunt, toy companies whipping it out and waving it all around going "LOOK HOW BIG THIS IS!!!", regardless of profitability. The decade of nigh-sociopathic excess.

Stuff like Fort Max and the USS Flagg are probably the biggest examples of "we're going to lose money but it LOOKS REALLY HUGE ON A SHELF HA HA EAT IT COMPETITOR", but animated commercials sure seem to fit that mentality.

Meh, even if they did bring them back they'd probably just be 3DCG. So I don't really care.

Not since the second movie or so. They use the US names now. More recognizable, I suppose. A shame, because I always enjoyed seeing what "first name" the current Convoy would get.

He was Optimus Prime in the first movie, too. The only reason they didn't switch to Optimus Prime wholesale right then is that they didn't import Animated then, waiting until after RotF instead.

It was also at that point where they switched to Autobots and Decepticons, instead of Cybertrons and Destrons.
