Going to try and dress up as AoSTH Robotnik. Only two things I see being had for the costume. The Moustache and the classic yellow target belt thing. May need some help. :drunk

@  Plokatron : (14 February 2016 - 01:40 AM)

Hmmm bit of cool news for me. I'm going to my first Comic Con!! No not the Comicon a comic con in cape girardeau. First Con thats been close enough for me to go to!! Blast it will be.

Chromedome aside, it's not like they're doing anything in MTMTE.

@  Boomhauer : (13 February 2016 - 07:46 PM)

Also the Season 2 Trailer makes me hopeful for Clampdown getting more toys since he seems to be one of the blessed escapees

@  Smokey : (13 February 2016 - 07:20 PM)

I had been hoping we'd get a good Windblade toy, and RID delivered this time.

@  Smokey : (13 February 2016 - 07:20 PM)

Yeah, RID Windblade is basically a gigantic slap in the face to the people who think RID could NEVER be anywhere near as good as "collector's" lines like Generations.

@  Boomhauer : (13 February 2016 - 07:13 PM)

Bisk is fun, but I'm more excited about Strongarm's fishgun, Scorponok with a different transformation for once and a Windblade that can stand up

@  Smokey : (13 February 2016 - 06:43 PM)

One-steps are pretty much the most fun thing ever. It's kind of addicting to just shift from one mode to another over and over again.

@  Smokey : (13 February 2016 - 06:41 PM)

That makes him even better than a Warrior.

@  Cabooceratops : (13 February 2016 - 06:39 PM)

Bisk is a 1-Step

@  Smokey : (13 February 2016 - 04:38 PM)

I hope Bisk is either a Legends or he's less messed up than he looks.

@  Plokatron : (13 February 2016 - 01:53 PM)

@Rycochet He is indeed voiced by Wierd Al. He is also a awesome brother. :D

@  Rycochet : (13 February 2016 - 07:15 AM)

Polkatron dares to be stupid and is voiced by A. Yankovic.

@  TheMightyMol... : (13 February 2016 - 07:07 AM)

He got all the musical talent in the family.

@  BillBarclay : (13 February 2016 - 05:59 AM)

Polkatron? is he Plokatron's spotty brother?

@  BillBarclay : (13 February 2016 - 05:58 AM)

Polkatron? is he Ploj

@  Plokatron : (12 February 2016 - 11:21 PM)

@Cabooceratops So was what I said. :D

@  Cabooceratops : (12 February 2016 - 09:10 PM)

It's called a joke, Polkatron, you may have heard of the concept?

@  Plokatron : (12 February 2016 - 08:06 PM)

@Nutjob R/T @TheMightyMollusk Yesh are you Baybots thinking so litteral?

@  TheMightyMol... : (12 February 2016 - 02:41 PM)

Optimus makes a lousy helmet.

@  Nutjob R/T : (12 February 2016 - 02:11 PM)

Wait when did Optimus Prime fly off the top of your head?

@  Plokatron : (12 February 2016 - 01:55 PM)

@Paladin @TheMightyMollusk @NotVeryKnightly Dumb dumb dumb on Hasbros part. Optimus flew withing the first three episodes of the G1 cartoon. No not the glide flight thing that only Deceps uses after that I mean the jetpack part. Plus I can site four other times he flew off the top of my head.

@  Boomhauer : (12 February 2016 - 12:45 PM)

Optimus already got to fly in RID's Season finale, though one could argue he was just falling with style instead of flying properly.

@  Rycochet : (12 February 2016 - 12:09 PM)

The Unicron Trilogy had awful shows but some really neat toys even if it did get off to a shaky start with some of the unnecessarily flawed Armada stuff.

@  NotVeryKnightly : (12 February 2016 - 12:09 PM)

Didn't he fly in Beast Hunters?

@  NotVeryKnightly : (12 February 2016 - 11:58 AM)

What about Animated?

@  TheMightyMol... : (12 February 2016 - 11:55 AM)

Someone who never saw the Unicron Trilogy. God do I envy them....

@  Paladin : (12 February 2016 - 11:49 AM)

...Hasbro's billing that new "Power Surge Optimus Prime" as "the first time Optimus takes flight." who thought THAT sounded right....

@  TheMightyMol... : (12 February 2016 - 11:34 AM)

More likely, they'll all follow the same visual style to retain brand coherency. The most you could hope for is better writing, but don't hold your breath.

@  Dracula : (12 February 2016 - 10:25 AM)

Cool. Bay can't possibly direct all of those. Maybe we'll get someone else's vision of what a TF movie could look like.

@  Paladin : (12 February 2016 - 10:14 AM)

ugh. we're apparently getting 1 TF film A YEAR starting 2017. and Bumblebee gets a spinoff film...

@  Plokatron : (11 February 2016 - 03:23 PM)

Guess no one has the comic then. Blast I need that close up of Ironhide's helmet!

@  BillBarclay : (11 February 2016 - 10:54 AM)

nah! it's Venus that's going to Botcon!

@  Paladin : (11 February 2016 - 10:45 AM)

could've also meant Cree Summer...

It would seem to makes some sort of sense if the comic book used some sort of body design to toys in stores. Back in the day the whole point of the comic was to promote the toys.

Back in the day people under the age of thirty read comics.

That's something I think I'm probably gonna miss from Regeneration 1.

I mean I know Furman will likely be able to tell a more coherent story without the constant toy introductions, but darn it those were just such a big part of what the classic Marvel Comic was.

I'd love it if there were some TF book that still acted as marketing in that way. It got us spotlight and characterization on a wider swath of characters and made me more excited about upcoming toys. It's like back of package murals and robot points and such, just something old school I miss...

How does one (who is not Unicron) go about destroying the (an) entire universe?



How does Unicron go about destroying an entire universe?

Unicron eats planets. Slowly. Eating one planet at a time is an incredibly piss-poor way of destroying an entire universe.


This just shows more and more that neither FunPub nor IDW 'get it' with TFs. When more or less random TFs (yeah, yeah, Magnus, still not near the power level required to blow up a world, much less more) just casually destroy universes for laughs, it's a sign that the writers just fail to understand the point.

There's a reason no one liked Sunstorm. Or Drift. And it's pretty basic:

If we wanted to watch Gurren Lagann, Getter Robo, Demonbane, or Ideon (and, by the by, I love the series...except Ideon which is just a 'like'), we'd watch those stories. We don't need TFs to poorly emulate the universe destroying antics of other shows. We need TFs to be TFs.

You mentioned four shows I've not watched or know about but apparently share similar tropes.

Four is okay but five with Transformers is not?

I'm thinking Transformers did the whole 'universe destroying' thing long before any of those shows were created.

Time Wars for example destroyed the post '86 movie universe in the Marvel U.K. comics. It may not have been the most straight-forward and well written of stories but it still exists.

Transformers has done epic and will continue to do epic. Transformers is not all about Megatron's latest evil plot to steal energy of the week.

I'll drop this here (posted it earlier...)

Magnus didn't actually destroy the Classicverse...

WHY the Classicverse was destroyed (when Earth was transported through the event horizon) will be revealed.

In fact, LOTS will be revealed...

And yes. Drift will be busy hunting the abominations. VERY busy...

This years comic has the worst possible ending for a fan who doesn't really enjoy SG figures/stories and pretty much gaurentees future SG Botcon sets.

Preeeetty much. I'm guessing the kind of G1/SG mix we got this year might be how it goes next year, too, unless they can do something with Prime figures (I expect those Hasbro Asia retools might get a workout).

But then they go and make Circuit, so that's almost all of the European Action Master Elites done as exclusives (Only Missing Omega Spreem and Turbomaster right?) If they do a FoC Bruticus as Turbomaster as SG Bruticus, I will buy it.

Circuit's not an Elite. Only Doublepunch has been done from the Elites, which leaves Omega Spreem, Turbomaster, and Windmill, none of which really have particularly good parallel figures sitting around like Doublepunch did.

Well He was European only, like Slicer, and Thundercracker, so that's close enough to Elite for me. I keep forgetting the Elite gimmick was that they could transform, not that they had they were European.
