my salt in not getting victorion has turned into salt waiting for TR rewind to go up for preorder. ho-hum

@  Verno : (01 May 2016 - 01:05 AM)

Given how TM Megs suffers from GPS, I'm sure many people would jump at a reissue.

@  Pennpenn : (01 May 2016 - 12:32 AM)

Out of all the hypothetical Beast Wars things, the one I'd like is a leader class Transmetal Megatron

@  Verno : (30 April 2016 - 11:18 PM)

They'd make a superb duo. If TT drew the line under BW MPs after those two, I'd be perfectly content.

@  Smokey : (30 April 2016 - 11:15 PM)

I personally hope we get an MP BW Megs, especially if he has a rubber ducky he can hold, yeeess.

@  Verno : (30 April 2016 - 11:13 PM)

Bring on October and MP Primal so the anniversary celebrations can begin.

@  Smokey : (30 April 2016 - 11:06 PM)

oh hey lok its tecs birthday

@  Smokey : (30 April 2016 - 11:03 PM)

It certainly has, man. If it wasn't for BW I probably wouldn't be here.

@  Verno : (30 April 2016 - 10:15 PM)

Yeah, I threw a link in the Beast Wars Birthday thread. I'm keen to hear as many thoughts on it as possible. The last month has proven just how dear to the hearts of fans BW is.

@  Smokey : (30 April 2016 - 10:04 PM)

I looked at it a few days ago, actually, I saw you post it somewhere here on the forums.

@  Verno : (30 April 2016 - 09:43 PM)

No, they're certainly after their own ends. Cheers for taking a look at it, Smokey. I appreciate it.

@  Smokey : (30 April 2016 - 09:36 PM)

Well, at least you twisted things around so the Tripredacus council aren't minions of Unicron.

@  Verno : (30 April 2016 - 09:30 PM)

With Primus and Unicron, it was my aim for it to double as a celebration of the 30th anniversary of TF:TM.

@  Smokey : (30 April 2016 - 09:27 PM)

It's... Better than Dawn of the Predacus, at least. I could do without the whole Primus v. Unicron thing, that's been done to death.

@  Paladin : (30 April 2016 - 05:10 PM)

something about street dates I think...

@  Pennpenn : (30 April 2016 - 10:25 AM)

Any particular reason it's not available in some of the ones I see more often like BBTS and TFSource and so on?

@  unluckiness : (30 April 2016 - 09:55 AM)

Might want to wash your hands after handling the toys if you order from the latter.

@  tffan01 : (30 April 2016 - 05:42 AM)

@summer, I was wondering why it looks like an ordinary TF group instead of being about TFWiki.

@  zephyrX9 : (30 April 2016 - 12:18 AM)

ok so either ages three and up sold out of victorion or their system is confusing so i guess im getting computron instead. rip my dream of ladybots everywhere

@  Summer : (29 April 2016 - 02:07 PM)

The TFWiki Facebook group has long since been abandoned by the actual TFWiki moderators, and there's little to no affiliation with the actual site.

Alligators are really scary, because they can eat you. But you know what's even scarier than alligators? Flying alligators. With laser vision. Scariest environment imaginable.

@  Foffy the Sheep : (29 April 2016 - 02:24 AM)

Rook has a very firm butt. ;)

@  Foffy the Sheep : (29 April 2016 - 02:20 AM)

But his butt is down there, and that's what I want to look at.

@  TheMightyMol... : (29 April 2016 - 02:19 AM)

Rook's eyes are up here, Foffy.

@  Foffy the Sheep : (29 April 2016 - 02:14 AM)

Obviously. Rook couldn't very well win the swimsuit competition while he was stuck being a leg, now could he?

@  TheMightyMol... : (29 April 2016 - 02:12 AM)

....of joy, because he's no longer stuck holding up a heavy combiner and can now go do his own thing?

@  Foffy the Sheep : (29 April 2016 - 02:09 AM)

You hear that? That's the sound of Rook crying bitter, bitter tears.

@  Telly : (29 April 2016 - 12:58 AM)

@  Dracula : (28 April 2016 - 09:09 AM)

All I can say is their preorder and invoice system seems to work fine.

@  Dracula : (28 April 2016 - 09:09 AM)

Oddly I just placed an order with them this week. But I haven't received the item (Victorion) yet, so I can't really give you a review

@  zephyrX9 : (27 April 2016 - 11:46 PM)

anyone here ever shopped at Ages Three And Up? If so, how is their service?

@  MEDdMI : (27 April 2016 - 08:46 PM)

Don't remind me, they do that at my work too *shudder*

Please feel free to move this to the comics section.

Also, reading this thread assumes you either read the comic or don't care to be protected from plot, so read at your own risk...




So what did you think? I heard some people complain that the ending was hard to understand, but I didn't see it as being very vague. I wonder if the plot of this comic has anything to do with the canceled "The Ultimate Salvation" story by Fun Pub. The ending really seemed like a twisted version The Ultimate's Doom's plot.

BTW - Did you notice the cameos by Universe Legends Cosmos and Gentei Dark Skyfire?

"Ultimate Salvation" will be finished later at some point and will tie up loose ends so that things can move on into this story as a fresh start. It's not canceled. This story is a separate thing.

Glad to know it will be printed eventually.

Again, plot warning below....




Okay, so Classicverse characters who live (assuming the damaged Autobot get repaired, as the club hinted) and are on Earth are:

Autobots
Blaster
Cosmos
Crossblades
Fortress Maximus
Grimlock
Ironhide
Jazz
Kick-Off
Metalhawk
Perceptor
Prowl
Ratchet
Rescue Roy
Scoop
Sideswipe
Silverbolt
Sunstreaker
Tracks
Ultra Magnus
Vroom
Warpath
Wheeljack

Grappel was seen in the Invasion Lithograph, but wasn't in the comic, so I guess he's still alive somewhere.

Decepticons
Carnivac
Dirge
Dreadwind
Gigatron
Horri-Bull
Megatron
Octopunch
Overbite
Seawing
Skalor
Skullgrin (Seen on the Lithograph in updated form, so I assume he lives and gets the upgrade)
Snaptrap
Snarler
Spinsiter
Stranglehold
Thrust
Weirdwolf

Dead Autobots: (all killed by the Junkions)
Broadside
Jackpot
Mainframe
Outback
Rad
Rollout
Sandstorm
Slapdash (What happens to his Nebulan anyways?)

Dead Decepticons (killed by a stampede of buffalo)
Nautilator
Tentakil


Minor complaints? They bother making a Transforming version of Kick-Off, and in the comic he never transforms! Come on, that seems like a given if you make an updated Transforming Action Master. Also, there was several panels where SG Decepticons seem to have purple Decepticon symbols. Sorta important to the plot.

Kick-Off doesn't like altmodes anyway, so not transforming kinda makes sense.

So... what's the best option for a Canadian to catch up on these? Mind, my LCBS seems to be pretty bad about getting the Fun Pub stuff even after it goes public, and I think the only one I have is the last Classics one with Ultra Magnus and crew.

I don't believe that they sold out, so whatever is left should be available at the Club Store eventually.

Also, for those looking to get the first Shattered Glass comic, I believe that Fun Pub is sold out of those. Which would mean that eBay is probably your best bet for the 2008 BotCon comic.

It seems to me that the story is really inaccessible if you haven't been keeping up with the club/BC fiction (and even so, I find myself getting confused about who's good and who's evil). This comic seems like set-up for what's to come, and not at all a complete story. I expected Overlord to be a major player in the comic, but he just kind of shows up, fights a little, and does nothing of consequence. It also doesn't hint at why the Magnus toy has a clear face. A universe is destroyed (fairly unbelievably) and there are no emotions or consequences shown. In general, it seemed like the story was far too big for the space it was allotted.

That said, it is an interesting set-up. I look forward to reading more about this new clusterhug of a continuity.
I have signatures disabled because they suck.

Luckily with a mirror universe you don't really need to know the character if you know the opposite. Who is that red car? He's evil Tracks! Like Tracks, but evil. Most of the Major characters in this story were new anyways.

Sure, he's PROBABLY dead.

Thing is there is pleanty of time that passed between Cheap Shots/At Game's End and Invasion that we don't really know where any off-screen Transformers were at the time of the destruction of the Classicverse. For all we know any off world Autobot or Decepticon could have been on Earth until the club tells us explicitly they are dead. Have they said specifically Nightbeat's crew was still off earth at the time the universe ended? Be a shame if the club killed off more of it's exclusives.

Part of it was due to ReGeneration One. Since they are both meant as a continuation of the Marvel Comics run, it was a bit of courtesy to Simon Furman to clear the way so that no one viewed them as competing timelines.

HIGHLIGHT to view:
A combination of SG Ultra Magnus, an artifact called the Terminus Blade, and the rarified Energon on Classics Earth. Ultra Magnus wanted part of Classics Earth moved into the Shattered Glass Universe, and doing so destroyed the rest of the Classicsverse.

Two more minor quibbles about Invasion...

1. Blaster is featured on the cover as one of the two "GOOD GUYS." with Metalhawk. Blaster only appeared in one group shot on the monitor on the cover. He didn't do anything or speak.

2. Perceptor appeared in his G1 Marvel style body design, but back in the Botcon Classicverse Lithograph we saw Perceptor in his newer Legends body. Did they just abandon that update for the retro look of his G1 body?

1) The cover was limited to toys in the box set, presumably so they could release it ahead of the show and keep the at-show toys a surprise, even though this didn't happen. Metalhawk was the only Heroic Autobot in the set, so his other guy is bound to be less important. And Buster Jones, the voice of Blaster, was at the convention itself for the first time.

2) There are a lot of guys with upgraded bodies in the lithograph other than Perceptor. Tracks, Warpath, and Wheeljack all appear in their Generations/RTS bodies, and they are only seen in their original bodies in the comic itself. Of course, they're all slaughtered with the express purpose of upgrading them later into those new bodies, so I personally view the lithograph as a snapshot into the future, after everyone's been upgraded.

1. Okay, I get putting the guy who was appearing at the convention on the cover. Skullgrin made sense since he did something in the comic. I forgot Buster was there signing autographs.

2. I was talking about the CLASSICVERSE Lithograph from years back, not the Invasion Lithograph.
