Why do you hate yourself?

@  LBD "Nyt... : (24 August 2016 - 12:45 AM)

I still need to read everything after Vol. 1 of RG1...

@  Telly : (23 August 2016 - 11:47 PM)

i really wouldve liked to see rg1 pick up where the marvel run left off (or just a couple years after), instead of jumping 20 years. i wanna see how shit went down on earth

@  Dracula : (23 August 2016 - 09:54 PM)

After RG1, I'd just as soon have nobody ever touch the marvel continuity again

@  MEDdMI : (23 August 2016 - 08:46 PM)

I would like a dancing/rhythm game called Rhythms of Darkness, but not necessarily Marvel related.

@  Bass X0 : (23 August 2016 - 07:42 PM)

I'd like a Rhythms of Darkness mini-series from IDW following on from the Marvel issue detailing the events that happened in that continuity after the issue ended. The Marvel movie adaptation and The Big Broadcast of 2006 would take place in the same continuity.

@  Telly : (23 August 2016 - 01:21 AM)

someone must think you need another set

@  OrionPax44 : (23 August 2016 - 12:08 AM)

All I keep getting is the add for the FP Stunticon set I already own

@  SHIELD Agent 47 : (22 August 2016 - 11:51 PM)

I frequently get ones for hot Asian women. I guess they're not doing their research.

@  tffan01 : (21 August 2016 - 03:39 PM)

Yeah they were awesome.

@  SHIELD Agent 47 : (21 August 2016 - 03:37 PM)

Anyone wish Maggie and Glenn from the first movie would return?

@  Cybersnark : (21 August 2016 - 03:19 PM)

And if the movies focused on Lennox and Epps (and Simmons) rather than Manic Weirdo, Fatherly Asshole, Statutory Rape Guy, and Generic Female Characters #432, #527, and #671, they'd already be far, far better movies.

@  ShadowMan024 : (21 August 2016 - 03:02 PM)

Lennox and Epps are the exact opposite of "terrible."

@  Cybersnark : (21 August 2016 - 02:47 PM)

Honestly, the movie designs look fine and are totally recognizable, the problem is how they're filmed (in close-up, shakeycam, with split-second cuts). We just need more wide shots, and a plot that focuses on the TFs as characters rather than as props for the (terrible) human characters..

@  Boomhauer : (21 August 2016 - 01:45 PM)

Yeah it's pretty obvious that the movie designs go out of their way to have parts in particular places that move around like muscles. They're going for metal aliens instead of megazords. A reboot, no matter how faithful to G1, would probably still have to try and go for a visual style that allows that kind of fluid movement.

@  cefurox : (21 August 2016 - 10:17 AM)

wew lad

@  unluckiness : (21 August 2016 - 08:48 AM)

At the very least, they make it tougher to see when parts clip through other parts

@  Fnu Aw : (21 August 2016 - 08:45 AM)

The movie designs were never about realism. They're about natural looking movement. Realistic G1 style designs would not move the way we want to see Transformers move. They'd collide with their own boxiness. The shredded metal look of the movie designs lets them flex.

@  NotVeryKnightly : (21 August 2016 - 06:18 AM)

IDW's art styles varied wildly throughout the years. And I'm not sure how "realism" is a reason to have one over any other since we don't know what shape-changing metal lifeforms really look like.

@  MEDdMI : (21 August 2016 - 05:51 AM)

I liked Eric the best, since he felt the most like a real person to me and had character growth over the series.

@  MEDdMI : (21 August 2016 - 05:50 AM)

Sort of. It was never animated, but if you scroll down to ep 28 and you can read the script for the final ep.

@  tffan01 : (21 August 2016 - 05:47 AM)

of course I'm not talking about Sunbow or Marvel, they look like people in cardboard boxes, I mean IDW, they look both interesting, realistic and also G1 enough.

@  Bass X0 : (21 August 2016 - 05:43 AM)

Did the kids in the Dungeons & Dragons cartoon ever find a way home for good?

@  NotVeryKnightly : (20 August 2016 - 11:15 PM)

Since we're talking about design styles, wasn't AHM like that?

@  SHIELD Agent 47 : (20 August 2016 - 11:13 PM)

Yeah, look at IDW. All its lead writers are longstnading fans, but it's not like they've tried to wholly shoehorn Marvel or Sunbow into IDW.

@  NotVeryKnightly : (20 August 2016 - 11:10 PM)

Or even a new style that isn't quite like any of the others.

@  Pennpenn : (20 August 2016 - 11:09 PM)

Even if they simplified the designs they'd probably look more like Prime than G1.

@  NotVeryKnightly : (20 August 2016 - 10:59 PM)

Also, "they'll go to G1 because they already used over-complicated movie designs" is a bit of a false dichotomy.

@  SHIELD Agent 47 : (20 August 2016 - 09:45 PM)

Also, flat-nosed trucks don't look intimidatingly cool to most American audiences. Movies got to find some way to get funding.

@  NotVeryKnightly : (20 August 2016 - 08:23 PM)

When someone stands next to say, Optimus Prime's leg it would just look like there's a large blue rectangle.

@  NotVeryKnightly : (20 August 2016 - 08:21 PM)

In live-action, they would all look flat and underdetailed when they're supposed to be huge.

@  tffan01 : (20 August 2016 - 03:32 PM)

I'm 90% sure they will be using more G1-ish designs in the reboot (if there'll be such a thing of course). They already used over-complicated movie designs, they'll return to G1.

@  tffan01 : (20 August 2016 - 03:15 PM)

All I'm saying is when they reboot it, they might want to try something they never did in the screen and use G1-ish designs.

@  SHIELD Agent 47 : (20 August 2016 - 02:57 PM)

Why? Would a classic G1 aesthetic make money?

@  ShadowMan024 : (20 August 2016 - 02:38 PM)

I don't think that switching to G1 would "correct" anything.

@  tffan01 : (20 August 2016 - 02:22 PM)

I actually believe they would switch to G1 because I feel like the next director would try to correct 'wrongs' of the older movies.

@  NotVeryKnightly : (20 August 2016 - 02:15 PM)

Also, if they get to the point of completely rebooting the movies with an entirely different aesthetic I highly doubt they'd switch specifically to G1.

@  SHIELD Agent 47 : (20 August 2016 - 02:13 PM)

A design alone doesn't say anything. The designs and the setting together are what TFWiki would deliberate upon.

@  tffan01 : (20 August 2016 - 02:13 PM)

I know but a movie character would definitely gets his sub page because of the tie-ins, it would be far too long.

@  SHIELD Agent 47 : (20 August 2016 - 02:12 PM)

Sub-pages are not done because of new franchises; they are done for length reasons.

@  tffan01 : (20 August 2016 - 02:12 PM)

I mean if they look like this: http://www.allspark....-1471381025.jpg

I...really don't know how to say this so I'll say it like this.

Joy, my fianc?e, left me this morning. While I was out on the paper route she had. I say had because after today, I'm no longer going to be running it for her. But yeah...she up and left. So yeah there's 10 years down the drain.

So please excuse me if I sound a little bit angry in my posts right now. I'm...not in a good place.

Ironbite-in fact I'm feeling fairly sick.

Apparently it was something that was a long time coming...at least on her end. For me, this was out of the blue. Sorta. I kinda felt this was coming but didn't expect this to happen today.

Ironbite-I dunno, just hate the fact that I wasted all this time and with nothing to show for it.

No nothing. There was nothing that would indicate this. This was, "oh go do my paper route and when you get back I'll be gone". So yeah. Done with that noise.

I'm gonna cry. Not gonna lie. I don't think this was fair to me to look me in the eye and go "I'm not leaving you" and then...leave me. So there's that.

The worst part is no note. Oh she said she wrote a letter but...yeah. Nothing so far. I'm just hurt so much by this.

Ironbite-but I'm not gonna do something stupid or anything so don't fret about that.

You wanna cry? Go cry. Rant, rave, break something even.

And when you're done: you'll better having that off your chest. And then you'll realize that you're older and wiser now, with more experience and in a better position from her having left. Plus, probably better than after you got married, what with her walking with half your stuff.

Completely inappropriate and unhelpful.

Ironbite, the part about this that's most concerning to me is that you have decided that the past decade of your life has been a waste. :/ That is a huge trap that people in long-term relationships get into, and prompts many of them to stay when they really should go. Having a relationship end doesn't invalidate the original decision to start that relationship, nor the time spent together. I am sorry to hear about the previous breakup, and the fact that it doesn't sound like she was satisfied. The ability to change the relationship to her satisfaction was probably not in your power to change, and THAT is the toughest part to swallow. Hurting isn't pleasant, and is expected for someone being dumped. :/ Sucks, dude. I echo the others' suggestions for catharsis.

You're better off without her.

Just don't dwell on it or writhe in misery. Feel what you need to feel, but just move on. If she left any stuff behind, box it, leave it on the porch, and tell her in a text where it is, and when she can pick it up. Don't answer the door, don't answer the phone.

Also, don't be bitter, not all women will do that to you.

I went through the same thing Ironbite, losing a ten year long marriage. And I have to say, good riddance to her. Sorrow of having "nothing to show" will just keep you trapped in a dead end relationship.

I know it hurts like hell. You've cried and you're going to cry some more. But once you fight your way through it you're going to come out on the other side stronger than you were before.

Take the chance to build on small steps. Go look up a few friends you haven't talked to in years, probably because your terrible relationship left you too depressed to bother. And, please, if the sadness gets to be too much GET HELP. Don't let it drive you to a damn mental breakdown like it did me. There's no shame if you wind up needing some medicine to help you feel happiness again.

Hrumph, if she didn't have the guts to explain things to you before she left, then a letter will hardly excuse it.

Well, thats just awful.

I echo the others here; cry a lot, if you want to, break stuff if needed, and get things off your chest. Maybe even take time off work and go somewhere.

You will survive this. But things are going to feel really huged up for a while.

I will have you in my thoughts, even if I only know you from the Internet.
