Now if only I could get one of my GoG games to work right (well series of games) :(

@  Kalidor : (01 December 2016 - 11:24 PM)

Thanks, I picked it up. Worth it for the soundtrack alone

@  Tm_Silverclaw : (01 December 2016 - 10:01 PM)

GoG is awsome.

@  wonko the sane? : (01 December 2016 - 08:07 PM)

woot woot, thank you kindly!

@  Dekafox : (01 December 2016 - 07:42 PM)

Head's up, GOG has Neverwinter Nights up for free for about another 30 hours or so

@  SHIELD Agent 47 : (01 December 2016 - 02:07 PM)

I just found out that Blue from Blue's Clues is a girl. Whoa.

@  Bass X0 : (01 December 2016 - 01:14 PM)

Holy Magikrap!

@  Pennpenn : (01 December 2016 - 08:45 AM)

Also, TR Triggerhappy is a good mold.

@  Pennpenn : (01 December 2016 - 07:34 AM)

I should have said "not staying together", but anyway.

@  unluckiness : (01 December 2016 - 06:50 AM)

My Astrotrain had that but some floor polish on the tabs helped.

@  Pennpenn : (01 December 2016 - 06:48 AM)

On the subject of recalcitrant TR voyagers, does anyone else have an issue with Sentinel Prime's legs staying together in space-brick mode?

@  Tm_Silverclaw : (01 December 2016 - 03:40 AM)

Holy crap or holy carp? ;)

@  BlackMax : (30 November 2016 - 08:41 PM)

...holy crap it works!

@  Tm_Silverclaw : (30 November 2016 - 07:14 PM)

Hold the button (orange spot) on his chest and push them down till they click.

@  BlackMax : (30 November 2016 - 06:05 PM)

The horns can never be kept down! \m/. >_< .\m/

@  Tm_Silverclaw : (30 November 2016 - 04:19 PM)

I was about to say.. I have no problem getting him to stay together in any mode. The horns was the worst thing for me. But I got that fixed.

@  unitremover : (30 November 2016 - 12:26 PM)

...and I just figured that out too

@  unitremover : (30 November 2016 - 12:24 PM)

Oh, hey, I figured it out. Now if I can just find a way to get his upper and lower body to stay pegged together in robot mode I'll be in business.

@  TheMightyMol... : (30 November 2016 - 12:12 PM)

Cold showers.

@  unitremover : (30 November 2016 - 12:11 PM)

Oh, what's the trick to getting his horns to stay down?

@  unluckiness : (30 November 2016 - 08:26 AM)

Alolan baristas say the darndest things

@  Tm_Silverclaw : (30 November 2016 - 08:26 AM)

I like Alpha trion. Just gotta see if his horns will stay down now that I learned the trick.

@  Robowang : (30 November 2016 - 07:55 AM)

Alpha Trion is awesome. Fun transformation, beefy robot mode, sweet sword, amazing headsculpt, and great colors.

@  PlutoniumBoss : (30 November 2016 - 05:48 AM)

Why? Alpha Trion is pretty cool, even with some flaws. He reminds me of BW2 designs.

@  unitremover : (29 November 2016 - 11:34 PM)

I should've listened to what everybody else said about Alpha Trion and not gotten lured in by the sweet siren call of a new toy evoking Vector Prime

@  Msol : (29 November 2016 - 10:12 PM)

Hot damn Astrotrain is way better than I was expecting.

@  BlackMax : (29 November 2016 - 06:32 PM)

I would've guessed that unaired theme for Beast Machines.

@  Gizmoboy : (29 November 2016 - 04:11 PM)

yes, Lightbright is correct on that one

@  Lightbright : (29 November 2016 - 01:47 PM)

Boom Boom Pow by the Black Eyed Peas?

@  Bass X0 : (29 November 2016 - 01:36 PM)

@  TheMightyMol... : (29 November 2016 - 05:47 AM)

Ultra Matryoska.

@  BlackMax : (29 November 2016 - 04:55 AM)

That'd be CW Ultra Magnus, I would think.

@  Nutjob R/T : (29 November 2016 - 01:22 AM)

Hm. Titans Return Rowboat Girlyman?

@  BlackMax : (28 November 2016 - 09:09 PM)

TR Alpha Trion looks like a Space Marine Primarch. Specifically, I'm thinking Fulgrim.

@  Gryllid : (28 November 2016 - 09:02 PM)

Shop pet-smart. Shop Pet-S-Mart.

@  BlackMax : (28 November 2016 - 08:03 PM)

@  Broadside : (28 November 2016 - 06:39 PM)

"Petsmart" is actually an example of bad Romanisation that's become entrenched in the fandom.

@  ShadowMan024 : (28 November 2016 - 06:27 PM)

No no no, it's SPELT "Petsmart," but it's pronounced "Throatwobbler Mangrove."

@  Dracula : (28 November 2016 - 06:23 PM)

It's pronounced "I can't go here with my wife because she'll cry when she goes to the cat adoption area"

@  MEDdMI : (28 November 2016 - 06:18 PM)

"peat's-may-rtt"

@  TheMightyMol... : (28 November 2016 - 05:03 PM)

It's pronounced "Petsmart". How else would you say it?

@  Bass X0 : (28 November 2016 - 05:02 PM)

Is "Petsmart" pronounced, "PetsMart" or "PetSmart"?

@  Whirl Maximus : (28 November 2016 - 04:31 PM)

The Legion of Doom liked my work on Black Friday I got a job offer! See you Doomsday folks.

Wow the MtMtE solicit and cover almost gives me the shivers. That sounds amazing. And it features the full return of real Cons to the book.

That RG1 cover is pretty awesome too. Best piece by Wildman I've seen on this series yet. VERY excited.icon-hotrod.gif

Also, no, I'm sorry, Turmoil has at no point ever been anything resembling a fan-favourite character. He's that murky guy who sort of appeared in that one issue.

They said they would do "corrected colors" in modern scenes but keep old style Marvel colors in flashbacks. It makes a sort of sense. Though I don't see why keeping Marvel colors throughout wouldn't have been easier/better.

Oh, and Turmoil was in TWO issues! So... Yeah, still not really a favorite.


-ZacWilliam, maybe this issue will make him one? Maybe?

I think if you added those two issues together and squinted, you could make out about one issue's worth of artwork. Murkity murk murk.

Remember when each TF had a special super power? (Yes, ok that was pretty much just 1984. But remember it?) Maybe Turmoil's power is Murk. That'd be pretty cool. He could be like the anti-Rainbow Bright, creating a field of murkity dark confusion to turn the battlefield to his advantage!

I'm all for advertising hyperbole but referring to Turmoil as a "fan-favorite character" is pretty much outright lying.

Hell referring to Turmoil as "a character the fans may be aware exists" is kinda stretching.

Depends on what forums you read. For example, if you mostly read the IDW forums, then Turmoil IS a fan-favorite character. Let's not be all TFW2005 here and assume that the entirety of the fanbase is right here and the folks who aren't here agree with us. There's a spectrum of opinions across the Internet with some localized puddlings of beliefs.

His appearances were in issues that (I doubt) sold over a few thousand copies.

I mean, in all honesty, the largest segment of "The Fandom" are the people who watched the movies and maybe have seen a few episodes of Prime. They probably don't even know who DRIFT is to say nothing of his one time Commander who showed up for like fifteen panels across two comics.

It would be just as disingenuous to call Sky Garry the "fan favorite Autobot commander" or Paddles "the fan favorite Dinobot" even if you could find fifteen fans who agreed with it; that statement is far from definitive on a fandom-wide scale.

On the other hand...it's just a comic book, I should really just relax. icon-hotrod.gif

That's not what Prime Wheeljack looks like.


Well, I've seen him on the show AND have him sitting on my shelf, so to my eye he bears a resemblance. I'm aware he's not an exact copy, but he looks more than a little similar.

He's definitely cribbing some design elements from Prime. The RID comic in general seems to draw from current or possible near-future toys, and that's a good thing.

What exactly are the criteria for someone to be a fan favorite? Like over on the IDW boards, there's about three people excited about Turmoil and he's barely been mentioned since the Drift miniseries when he last appeared. He doesn't get a tenth of the attention guys like Overlord do.

Its just a selling tactic, thats all.

Its not true but its really nothing to complain seriously about.

Just because you can't win doesn't mean you stop working.
