TMW you see a bunch of people have liked something you posted while you were away, and you're like "what did I even say?!"

@  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.

I thought King Kong '05 was pretty great! I just wish I hadn't watched it as a double feature with that movie about the island with the giant bugs.

@  tffan01 : (24 July 2016 - 04:46 PM)

yeah it was long as hell, it took me several days to finish it.

@  Paladin : (24 July 2016 - 11:58 AM)

maybe this new one won't take half a day to watch all the way through...

@  tffan01 : (24 July 2016 - 11:00 AM)

I believe this new Kong movie will not be as good as the 2005 one.

@  Pennpenn : (24 July 2016 - 08:52 AM)

You'd figure something like that would get a pass, some kind of grandfather clause since the name is already intractably established.

@  Paladin : (24 July 2016 - 08:15 AM)

"DS-1 Orbital Battle Station." That's the official classification...

@  Bass X0 : (24 July 2016 - 08:04 AM)

now that Hasbro can't use the word "Death" on the packaging of their toys, what will they call the Death Star?

@  Whirl Maximus : (24 July 2016 - 07:44 AM)

It's in the comic con trailer and seems like a hideous waste. I guess the show makers have no reverence for Doctor Who like they do Star Trek.

@  Bass X0 : (24 July 2016 - 04:20 AM)

Which is the height of quality for Family Guy jokes...

@  Whirl Maximus : (24 July 2016 - 04:00 AM)

David Tennent has done a cutaway for Family Guy. Don't get to excited it was a fart joke.

@  Broadside : (23 July 2016 - 03:17 PM)

"Micronauts: Starring psychic Peter Quill and E123-Omega".

@  Broadside : (23 July 2016 - 03:16 PM)

Ooh, sounds neat.

@  Sockie : (23 July 2016 - 01:16 PM)

Yeah, the first was definitely the weakest of the three. Really looking forward to the next issue; judging by the preview for it, it's delving into Karza and Shazraella's past and Microspace's exact political situation.

@  Broadside : (23 July 2016 - 01:11 PM)

I was ambivalent about the first issue, but the quality stepped up in the second and again in the third.

@  Sockie : (23 July 2016 - 10:37 AM)

And yes, Micronauts is great! I enjoyed the first three issues quite a lot.

Crazy or serious, make some predictions then look back to see how close you were.


People will complain about the mold, character choice or color scheme for some of the unrevealed exclusive toys. Either because they are bad choices or Hasbro should have released them at retail.

Someone at tfw2005 will complain that the exclusives are dumb overpriced repaints.

People will be jealous that the custom class figure isn't available to everyone.

There won't be any of the proposed forty Generations 2013 toys revealed.

The Combaticons, Jazz, Shockwave, Starscream and Optimus Prime toys from WFC will be hyped a lot as if they were completely new reveals. Only the brightly colored Combaticons will be released. More of the game will be shown.

Focus will be on Prime and new Prime toys, mainly Cyberverse.

Hasbro will show attendee exclusive artwork that non-attendees won't ever get to see.

Many dumb questions will be asked to Hasbro and Hasbro won't be forthcoming with informative answers.

Hasbro to reveal plans for slowly releasing the FE molds through store exclusives.
New Prime molds will be shown but mostly old characters at different size classes from their previous releases.
Monkeys will fly out of David Willis' butt.

Some ne'er-do-wells will start a huge argument at the Hasbro panel, chaos will ensue and hate will overtake the hall until Peter Cullen walks in, opens the Matrix, and cures everyone of their hate an anger. This will mark an end to the Botcon Wars and everyone will march forward to a new era of peace, happiness, and exclusives.

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

But he will keep his shorts on, I hope. Well, at least as long as they don't release another Hot Shot from AEC, then all bets would be off.

While I'm pretty certain they'll show SDCC exclusives, I wonder if they'll show any NYCC stuff as well.

And yes, I was too lazy to come up with a decent TF related forum name, and just *GASP* used my own.

If they release another AEC Hot-Shot, Willis will likely tear through any pants he's wearing.

Bruticus to be made in very limited quantities, available on eHobby only.

Hasbro decides there's no money in toys anymore, easier to be an entertainment media company. No more transformers forever.

Someone in the club was responsible for the security leaks, and has stolen every Botcon exclusive. No more club forever.

Brian Savage now wishes to be known as Doctor Savage, and begins carrying a purple and gray cat, is only seen from behind.


... So now when none of these come to pass, I will consider Botcon a resounding success!

On the bright side:
the majority of the 40 Generations will be the WFC/FOC cast. ALL OF THEM.

Kre-O Defensor and Menasor

Prime Defensor toy revealed into two sets; Cyberverse (four legion+one commander) and Mainline (four revealers+one powerizer), alongside Prime Jazz, Sideswipe, Perceptor, and Scattorshot. Magnus will get a Mainline Powerizer AND Weaponizer, and will be in the show

Reveal that Bumblebee will get his voice back

Reveal that we get a Wheeljack level in FOC with the Wreckers, and have designs for Impactor, Rotorstorm, Pyro, and Roadbuster revealed

Reveal that some of the Protectobots are in FOC
In the land of the dead, heck boy ain't it grand?

"Will ______ be in Prime?" Followed by hesitant answers, and a planned reveal later on being ruined.

Predictions -

Weekday News:

*The Con exclusives are exactly who the leaked list said. Some are pleased. Some disapointed.

* The Custom class figure is cool enough to create envy.

* A couple of new Cyberverse and a couple of unseen Prime repaints are seen in the display cases as Hasbro sets up.


Weekend News:

* Prime is doing well and will introduce 1 more new charcter before the end of the season. Random 5 minutes of an upcoming episode will be shown. Arcee will yell and jumpkick someone. Rescue Bots will get a token mention but nothing else, no new toys mentioned or shown beyond the couple from Toy Fair.

* IDW is doing well and James Roberts will be cloned so MtMtE can be a weekly. Grimlock and at least one Wrecker will be seen in books before the end of the year.

* Hasbro will show a hand full of images of 3 or 4 2013 Generations figures but there will be no photographs. They will tease the idea of a second combiner but no more than that. We might get to see Grimlock. There will be 2 or three new Prime things but mostly stuff we've already seen from Japan. I'll be kinda disappointed in how little we see that's of interest to me personally but there'll be one or two pretty neat things that counter that.

* Fun Pup will show off 2 or 3 exlusives for the coming months/year and they'll be really nice figures/concepts. Though at least one will be Shattered Glass something that will be a total pass for me.


In Conclussion: There will be awsome stuff but not as much as we'd like to dream of there being... Some surprises that are promising... And an overall speculation over whether they were saving the really good stuff for San Diego.


-ZacWilliam, hopes they blow all expectations and predictions out of the water.

We will see nothing new, Hasbro will dodge all questions about how they're handling the brand, half the previously announced toys will be cancelled, and all chances of ever getting FE Bulkhead and Optimus will disappear forever.





With expectations that low, I'm BOUND to be pleased, right?




Right?
