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).

Not a ton of information about this but I just found some of the first pictures of the show.



More images here:
http://powet.tv/powe...e-bears-series/

It's an all CGI show that will start on the Hub this summer. I get the impression that Cheer Bear and Share Bear will be the main characters but it's kind of hard to tell from this limited information. I think they're hoping to have a My Little Pony type revival with this show. I'm looking forward to it, though it's hard to get much of an idea of quality until the show starts.

So who used to watch this show when they were a kid? I had a Care Bears lunch box when I was in 3rd grade. Good times...

If Care Bears turns out to be good, does it make us look sillier than MLP does? Or not? I'm not sure.

I already saw a new care bears show. Traditional animation... Evil bear that seemed to have built his a cyborg suit of armor.

I didn't get much from it, it was on in the background while I was watching my nephew about 6 months back.

Well they appear to be adhering to the old designs, said designs are what initially made me avoid them when I was a child and I don't think they've improved by CGI or age.

I was willing to give MLP: FiM the benefit of the doubt because the newer designs looked ok (and yes, the rave/raving reveiws), but this... probably not nearly so much. And no, I don't have any idea how you could remake the Care Bear's design so I wouldn't think it crap.

If the show catches on in the male fandom as much as MLP did, be ready for even more judging.

As far as 1980s Adam is concerned My Little Pony was lame and for girls but the Care Bears were really cool. I think this franchise has less improvement necessary to make it good, whereas MLP came out of nowhere. Because of this I'd say less silly...

I don't know how this hasn't happened yet. Maybe live action shows like Hannah Montana have filled that niche. They want a real person to put behind their music to sell albums and such.

Surely they've been making new Care Bears shows for years and I don't think they've been worth paying attention to. I'm hoping this one will be different.

What is it you don't like about them? They're basically modeled after plush toys.

I grew up with the original Care Bears series. Both of them. The Nelvana one and whichever other one was pretty much exactly like it and I think even used the same theme song. And I'm pretty sure there's not room in a franchise like that for the kind of reimagining that made My Little Pony into what it is today. Plus, TV CGI has never, ever not sucked.

QUOTE(Goblez @ Mar 27 2012, 01:36 AM) <{POST_SNAPBACK}>

When the '80s happen all over again, I reckon. You pretty much can't get any more '80s than Jem, and if they reimagined her as a generically 2010s character, everyone who cared enough to want her back in the first place would rage.

Beastly and Shreeky were the best. The fact that Shreeky shared a voice actress with Sailor Moon was pretty rad.

Seriously, though, any new Jem is going to have to compete with the fact that Hannah Montana still (via reruns) dominates that particular space. Even if Hasbro could deflect criticisms of being a HM ripoff, it's still probably too soon to try to take over that niche.

We have to add Jimmy Newtron to the list. Like it or hate it, that show had a fanbase. I certainly watched it.

As for this new Care Bears... Meh. I liked the movies, but I recall finding most of the show to be kinda subpar.

Not really, no.

He also left out Star Wars: The Clone Wars.

Transformers is a brand that really has something for everyone. We are a darn lucky fandom.

We can squabble about the specifics, but unless you have some weird disfunction, you have to find at least 1 or 2 of the shows mentioned in this threat to be quite good. I mean really... does anyone at the AllSpark actually dislike Beast Wars? I can't imagine why you would even be here...

It's ironic. I am actually not a fan of Transformers. I ended up making an account here because Database would CONSTANTLY link me to threads, and I spent so much time reading them that I finally figured I might as well be a member. But when it comes to Transformers, I just never got into any of the shows.

...EXCEPT Beast Wars. For whatever reason I loved that one. icon-fire.gif

Eh, I'll probably watch an episode to see if they worked a miracle. I liked G1 MLP as a kid, so it wasn't such a stretch for me to give FIM a chance(of course I don't hate G3 either now that I've seen it, so I'm obviously weird.) I don't think there was ever a time when I liked Care Bears though.
