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)

the wind blew the sun into the river. honest!

@  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.

@  LBD "Nyt... : (27 July 2016 - 01:40 AM)

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 forsee a lot of complaints that Hasbro isn't making this repaint in the main line. It seems like an obvious repaint choice from Hasbro. Plus this means the club is making three recolors of this mold (SG Magnus, SG Optimus and RiD Scourge), which is a lot of repaints for a not-Seeker mold.

So long as Hasbro does some kind of Nemesis Prime (even/especially with Crystal Skull), I'll be ok. It's not like a hasbro release was going specifically be Scourge/have the upside-down G2 logo anyway.

Saw this on tfw2005. Pics will come Saturday. Scourge will be a repaint of Reveal the Shield Optimus Prime obviously.

You obviously don't follow our Twitter (I tweeted it 3 hours ago) or looked a the other thread where I mentioned it.

It stands to reason that whatever hasbro has planned for the RTS Laser Prime mold includes the skeletor head, So Id rather my Scourge have a prime head.

I hear a lot of chatter of people thinking that Scourge will be the freebie, on account that this is the clubs way of apologising to the members for the CC snafu.

I, however belive it will not be the freebie, and will be one of the ones we buy. Simply because A: Those of us who want it (me included) are more than willing to pay through the nose to get it, and B: We've seen what may very well be packaging art.

I would be really surprised if he was the free figure.
Considering how much of a fan favorite he is I think they wouldn't have any trouble with him selling out.


Personally, I'm still waiting for the G2 Ultra Magnus version of the mold.

*shrug*

They just released 3 versions of the RtS Jazz mold at the 'Con, so it's not like mold-reuse is a foreign thing to them.

Same here.

By way of comparison, I paid $40 for my textbook for next semester.

Yeah - I'm just buying a Prime off of E-Bay and introducing it to that giant bottle of black paint I bought but never got around to using.* It'd be a heck of a lot cheaper, and I wouldn't have to go to the hassle of trying to get a pre-paid credit card just to register and pay for everything.





*I got a Microman Kicker, and wanted a Misha to go with him. My original plan called for me to purchase a Microman Rei Ayanami School Outfit figure (the vendors I was going through at the time couldn't get rid of her) and paint her up like Misha in her lab attire, but Smalljoes.com found a Microman Acro Elsa in its inventory and I was able to snag it. I just say that Misha's got her own armor now.

If RID Scourge is the incentive freebie, then I'm selling him.

If he's one of the guys that's being sold through the club store next year, then that's fine and excellent. But I won't be getting him.
