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...

The need for accommodation isnít a ďspecial needĒ. Itís a basic human right. Itís a leveling of the playing field that allows us the same opportunities and chances as non-disabled people."

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.
Fall of Cybertron will blow your mind. That is all.

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.
