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)

@  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.

These YouTube commercials are really getting irritating. It's annoying enough as it is to have to close click that hugging popup ad that comes up in the middle of every video, but now 15, 30 second commercials (and some much longer than that) are now being placed in front of even the shortest videos. Is this Google's doing, or should I be pissed at every Tom, Dick, and Harry on YouTube trying to make money on ads? I know people need to get paid, but damn, I have to sit through more commercials browsing through YouTube than I do watching broadcast television.

I never get served ads of any sort on Youtube. Some combination of my adblock filters is managing to get around it all. I also used it to stop getting redirected to the low-speed video server range Youtube has. I'm sure you know the one, where it takes literally five or more minutes on a decent internet connection to load a 30-60-second clip? Adblock is an amazing tool and I would not use the internet without it.

I've wavered back and forth on the issue. Addblock will allow you to select specific pages to block or unblock and I have been going along the 'block most of youtube, but unblock people I subscribe to' lines recently.

It's sort of a compromise. Not a perfect one, but it seems reasonable to me. If I like the content then I'll submit to the advertising.

My stance on YouTube ads varies on the content I'm about to view. If it's an independent user upload, where I know the producer is making a fraction of a penny for the ad before the video, I don't mind. After all, if folks like James Rolfe manage to make a living off of their productions and don't have to work 9-5 jobs to pay the bills, it means they'll have the time and resources to produce more content.

When I have to sit through a makeup commercial before watching a movie trailer on the studio's official channel, though... yeah, not a fan of that.

I just want to know, and I am semi-serious about this, WHO is sitting there that gets to decide when would be the most INOPPORTUNE TIME for the ad to pop-up?

I wouldn't really care if the thing popped up right off the start, but just as I'm getting to the crucial part of the video, BAM, there's the ad, and I gotta pause it and close the ad, or close the ad, then rewind to see what I missed.

I don't block the ads but sometimes I want to. Put them at the start and at the end, fine. But do we need the pop over ads that block sometimes the lower third of the video?

If you're on a metered connection then downloading ads, particularly video ads, can potentially cost you a lot of money. We are often paying to be advertised at.

Good point. I am paying for my cable tv company to provide the signal to me. Therefore TV studios should no longer be able to sell advertising time during my favorite programs. I shouldn't pay to be advertised at!

Not really comparable. Imagine you pay for your cable, but you're only allowed to watch 1 hour a day, commercials would eat dearly into what you're paying for. You're paying for an hour, but you're only getting 40 minutes because of commercials.

On some sites, the pre video ad will flip out and then it causes the real video to fail. Blip does it most often. Youtube, sometimes, depending on my connection.
