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.

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).

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.

And with every pic of these Data Disks and their clear plastic cases the more ecstatic I become.
They're just the PERFECT fusion of Recordicons and Bakugan. Even the clear plastic cases fill me with nostalgic joy. The toy store near me in 84-85 imported single versions of the cassettes with their own plastic cases.

I'm very likely to get the Soundblaster repaint and use it as a base for Database, Even can make Mainframe and Hard Drive from Laserbeak and Rumble. Glitch however can't be made since there is no mouse/rat cassette...

Q: scout frenzy/rumble? A: have the mold, but no plans

I just don't understand this, can someone help me too, they made the molds, Takara sold them already they have to want to make money back for making them, why can't they just say Okay this wave will include these guys, and stick them in a future wave?

The Animated molds I can understand better because of their unique look, but not Rumble and Frenzy.

Dead size class+redundant character release=bye-bye non-Japanese release.

Plus as was stated when TakaraTomy released Wingblade Prime, Blackout, and Hydrodive Bumblebee, a Japanese release counts as making their money back on the production costs. Apparently.

And nobody asked about Unicron or the Jet Vehicon? Really? 'Guess they might be Japanese-exclusive after all.

So they already made back what it cost to make them okay, and I did forget that the Scout class was retired although I don't see why a two-pack is completely out of the question. Thanks.

I'm also very surprised nobody asked about Unicron, or that Hasbro themselves didn't mention him.

VOyager Soundwave is just a larger version of Deluxe WFC Soundwave with added gimicks? Also, Laserbeak turns into a wheel?


It's a larger version of the WfC design but a whole new toy. It holds Data Disks and launches them. That's what the Tapes now becoeme - Data Disks. They're spring loaded to pop into bot mode when launched. Sounds like they're doing a bunch (at least 6) of them.

- ZacWilliam, demands they do EVERY G1 Recordicon!

And then make new Recordicons! They look so much better then what I was imagining.

Soundwave and Kickback look great, I'm expecting a lot of people using him to stand in for Prime's Insecticon if they don't make a toy.

Hmm. Another light year for me.

Seriously, Firefight and Kickback both appeal to me, but the rest? Skippable. I'm not complaining, mind, and I expect we'll get more reveals soon, but still, right now, not much of this selection is calling to me.
