Tusks doesn't exist in aligned though. Or maybe he does, but in this continuity he needs someone else to work the controls, or maybe by "piano player" the narration implies that Maccadam literally IS the piano. The universe may never know.

@  NotVeryKnightly : (31 May 2016 - 09:55 PM)

Where in Aligned?

@  Plokatron : (31 May 2016 - 09:53 PM)

@Locoman Hmm that can't be right. The piano plays it's self. Thats Tusks not Maccadam. But yeah in Aligned he is Alchemist Prime from what I've read. Still not the G1 universes though so I'm going with the Blue Bar Keep bot as him in Primax Clusters unless I'm pointed out wrong. Edit: Oh AVP said that not just the Aligned continuity. Well I'll just go with the blue bot like I said but say thats how he looks in Primax clusters. Unless proven wrong of course.

@  Locoman : (31 May 2016 - 09:42 PM)

But he's described as having a beard, and Retribution takes place in the aligned continuity where things are weird, and AVP has basically established that he's Alchemist Prime, so...

@  Locoman : (31 May 2016 - 09:42 PM)

no, he's the piano player.

@  Plokatron : (31 May 2016 - 09:40 PM)

@Locoman Was that him then? Cause the wiki only shows the bar keep in Maccadam's entry.

@  Locoman : (31 May 2016 - 09:30 PM)

Maccadam shows up in Retribution! He talks and everything.

@  Plokatron : (31 May 2016 - 09:18 PM)

Question anyone know if the bar keep http://tfwiki.net/me...ams_destiny.jpg here is Maccadam? Or is he just the face of the joint and we still haven't seen Maccadam?

I just thankful they didn't have a black Peter Parker.

@  tffan01 : (30 May 2016 - 09:09 AM)

I would have preferred Peter Parker. But If they really wanted to make a non-Peter Parker lead, they could have made Spider-Man 2099, at least it has a gimmick (futurism). While Miles, imo isn't that different from Peter Parker.

@  Locoman : (30 May 2016 - 08:52 AM)

That would be cool. Ultimate Universe kind of went off the rails toward the end, but I always liked Miles.

So, the upcoming BW Megatron remold of FoC Grimlock.

The additional pics of the upcoming BW Megatron remold of GrimFoC has got me pretty keyed up. However, as I've slightly touched on in the original thread about him, he does pose a continuity question. Obviously he uses a FoC mold, which is, officially, in the "aligned" WfC/FoC/TFP continuity. As such, the most straightforward use of the toy is, just as FoC Grimlock is a new Grimlock distinct from G1, a new Aligned version of BW Megatron, whatever that means for the Aligned continuity (do they have a Beast Wars-like event in the future? Or does this Megatron belong to the FoC era just like every other FoC toy?)

However, A second possible use of the toy in the Aligned continuity is as the pre-existing Aligned Megatron - perhaps this is just a "phase" Aligned Megatron goes through during the FoC timeline (or later) where he uses a Grimlock-type body whose head simply homages BW Megatron while having no bearing on that character's fictional status.

Thirdly, a less-official take would be to, a la, IDW, simply assume that this new remold is a G1-continuity character, and thus, the actual BW Megatron/Megatron II that we all know and love (or at least a closer iteration of him, like with IDW Waspinator being just another G1/BW/Primax Waspinator). However, this leads to questions as well, namely that of, if this is in fact the true BW Megatron from the cartoon continuity, what aspect of him does it represent? When does he use this body? Or, if it is a somewhat different G1/Primax BW Megatron, which one is he? Sunbow? IDW? Wings?

Personally, my take will likely be a variation of Option 3, with the toy being the Real Deal BW Megatron. I've got an idea involving him, post-BM (hur hur), being resurrected (somehow). Following this, he devises a second time-travel plot, this time going back to the early era of the Great War (basically a G1 version of post-FoC). Deciding that one of the pivotal moments swinging the war toward Autobot victory was Shockwave's failure to properly harness the Dinobots, he ingratiates his way into the Decepticon ranks and, eventually, into Shockwave's confidence. However, rather than helping Shockwave produce tamed Dinobots, he uses Shockwave's tech to rebuild himself into the same form as Grimlock, believing that only a true Decepti/Predacon, not to mention one with his own level of intelligence, possessing a Dinobot body could turn the tide in favor of the Decepticons and quickly end the war.

Anyway, what are you going to do with him?

BW Megs has always been a completely different character than regular Megs, so he'll probably just be himself. Since BW came from the distant future into the prehistoric past, one could argue that he hasn't been introduced yet in the A-C, since Prime is near-future at most.

A lot will depend on the Bio.

But yeah, since he is a separate/distinct character I do wonder how the wiki will parse him if it does turn out to be BW Megatron and not say...Gigastorm or whatever.

The aligned counterpart of beast wars Megatron.Since the Aligned continuity is supposed to take elements from every universe, it only makes sense that there'd eventually be a Beast Wars. Maybe not one on prehistoric earth, but something involving a guy calling himself Megatron who scanned a T.Rex alt mode.

The second Universe comic issue revealed that Megatron had been resurrected after Beast Machines during the Universe War. Given the unproduced RiD Megatron redeco/remold that was proposed back then, that might have been his intended body for this revival. Afterward, with Primal being upgraded to his 10th Anniversary Deluxe body, so too may have Megatron. Thus, this new FOC Grimlock body may be his body for even after that point.

Though, as others have mentioned, it'll all depend on the bio.

Keep in mind, however, that his bio could very well be generically written to just represent Beast Era Megatron in general, without specifying any event-related reason for this toy's body. In that kind of case, all that would matter in the bio would be which character he is, instead of the current form taken on by said character.

I mean, just look the bios of Beast Wars 10th Anniversary Deluxe Megatron and United UN-31 Beast Megatron. Both toys have the character in a body that, while based on his original Beast Wars T-Rex body, is new and different enough from the bodies of his previous toys. Yet, both toys feature generically-written bios that only describe the character in a very general manner, paying no mind to his new looks.

I think the concept of being educated and being able to educate is something that more people need more of in their lives.

No, we don't all know everything but we should spread and share that what we do know.

If I'm consistently misspelling a word, I would want and expect people to correct me as should I imagine all decent people who know the value of good literacy.

Its just arrogant laziness to know you're spelling a word incorrectly and not correct yourself or ignore the advice when people do tell you how to spell a word correctly.

If the package mentions FoC still or the Bio refers to something explicitly Aligned that places him there. If it doesn't, then there's no reason to associate him with that Universal Stream at all.

As long as that isn't the case he's just another G1 BW Megs update from some version of Primax BW or before or after.

Specifically since the real thing is a now incredibly expensive Botcon toy I'm going to use it as a pre-Beast Wars BW Megatron.

If it's somehow in Armada Predacon colors, it's Prime Predacon. Doesn't seem likely, but strange things happen.

If it's in BW Megatron's colors, then...I dunno. I'd probably just skip it. Nothing added on to Beast Wars after the show has really impressed me enough to want to add more.
