I suspect a group of people using the account/s since anybody could bang out a cover story and stick to it easily enough.

@  tffan01 : (27 June 2016 - 07:02 AM)

He was kinda weird, honestly.   Also the reason he's banned is most likely (or 100%) for the double accounts. Why did he do that anyway?

@  Touch My Thighs : (27 June 2016 - 06:45 AM)

Yeah, Hiroyuki Nishigaki 1 and 2. Banned, so they must have been doing something wrong.

@  Touch My Thighs : (27 June 2016 - 06:40 AM)

Oh yeah. That was a great giveaway.

@  MEDdMI : (27 June 2016 - 06:39 AM)

It was the name of a guy who wrote a book about sphincter exercises or something.

@  Touch My Thighs : (27 June 2016 - 06:39 AM)

I can't remember it at all. It's like he vanished from the face of the earth.

@  tffan01 : (27 June 2016 - 06:36 AM)

I dunno, something japanese

@  Touch My Thighs : (27 June 2016 - 06:08 AM)

What was his username again?

@  tffan01 : (27 June 2016 - 06:06 AM)

Yeah I think he was harmless. Even though he said some condradictory stuff but still. Maybe we hurt his feelings.

@  Touch My Thighs : (27 June 2016 - 05:57 AM)

Oh hey it's that forum that guy who insisted he wasn't a troll said he found the allspark from but then vanished when pressed.

If you wanna talk "unnecessary" they also have this http://starwars.wikia.com/wiki/Curtain

wow creepy

@  Touch My Thighs : (27 June 2016 - 05:43 AM)

I forget most of it but IIRC Bulbapedia's webmaster was caught making advances on underage girls online.

@  tffan01 : (27 June 2016 - 05:40 AM)

Yeah why is that a thing? Its just unnecessary, everyone knows whats a breast.

@  MEDdMI : (27 June 2016 - 05:39 AM)

Aww, no articles on the significance of butts or groins on the Wookieepedia

@  tffan01 : (27 June 2016 - 05:38 AM)

Also what's wrong with Bulbapedia's admins?

@  Jalaguy : (27 June 2016 - 02:18 AM)

Also, Wookieepedia has this supremely creepy article: http://starwars.wikia.com/wiki/Breast

@  Verno : (27 June 2016 - 01:11 AM)

TFWiki is an invaluable resource. I've spent hours, nay days, trawling through it.

@  SHIELD Agent 47 : (26 June 2016 - 09:09 PM)

I know the wiki which is highly relevant to this forum!

@  Locoman : (26 June 2016 - 07:54 PM)

I didn't know either of those things, to be honest. I thought we were just going by the accuracy and amount of informaiton.

@  Touch My Thighs : (26 June 2016 - 07:37 PM)

They all have their demons. Bulbapedia's got a history of creepy admins, Wookipedia's ruthlessly crushed other SW wiki attempts in the past...

@  Locoman : (26 June 2016 - 07:34 PM)

but my favorite wikis of all time are the half-completed wikis out there on wikia that have been abandoned and subsequently overrun by little kids

@  Locoman : (26 June 2016 - 07:33 PM)

There are other good wikis out there too, though. Bulbapedia, Wookieepedia, Nukapedia...

@  Touch My Thighs : (26 June 2016 - 07:33 PM)

Every wiki has good wikipeople trying to wiki at their best.

@  ShadowMan024 : (26 June 2016 - 07:21 PM)

Also, it's more entertaining to read.

@  SHIELD Agent 47 : (26 June 2016 - 07:07 PM)

In my experience tfwiki's reliability in Transformers is exponentially greater than that of any wikia, even a subject as popular as Marvel.

@  tffan01 : (26 June 2016 - 06:11 PM)

Also the Walky guy did this too. He said Marvel Wiki is unreliable, I understand where he's coming from and yes Marvel Wiki has its own flaws but that doesn't mean all of the things people wrote there is wrong. 
 
Also Marvel Wiki user Nausiated is a really good wiki editor. For example his work; http://marvel.wikia....xpanded_History
http://marvel.wikia.com/wiki/PeterParker_(Earth-616)/Expanded_History

@  tffan01 : (26 June 2016 - 06:11 PM)

Also the Walky guy 

@  tffan01 : (26 June 2016 - 06:07 PM)

Yeah that too.

@  Locoman : (26 June 2016 - 05:26 PM)

Also keep in mind that some of these people might have gotten banned from the wiki for various reasons, and are still bitter.

@  tffan01 : (26 June 2016 - 04:23 PM)

Yeah but it's kinda frustrating even though they are ignorant comments.:-/

@  NotVeryKnightly : (26 June 2016 - 04:21 PM)

If they're not right then it doesn't actually matter what they say.

@  tffan01 : (26 June 2016 - 04:18 PM)

Thanks for the answers.

@  Nevermore : (26 June 2016 - 03:51 PM)

That's how I approach it!

@  tffan01 : (26 June 2016 - 02:38 PM)

You're right.

@  MEDdMI : (26 June 2016 - 01:47 PM)

Sometimes you just need to ignore the criticism and do it for yourself, if no one else.

@  MEDdMI : (26 June 2016 - 01:40 PM)

There's always going to be naysayers and trolls no matter what you do, regardless of the effort you put in.

@  tffan01 : (26 June 2016 - 12:56 PM)

Notveryknighly, Did I said they are right???? it's just all the work you've done and some guy comes and says "This wiki is unreliable becuase wikis can be edited by everyone!" , it's just irritiating. They don't even respect the wiki users (not talking about myself by "wiki users" btw)

@  Foffy the Sheep : (26 June 2016 - 10:34 AM)

Potato!

@  Touch My Thighs : (26 June 2016 - 09:47 AM)

I'm thinking of a number between 1 and 100. What number is it?

@  NotVeryKnightly : (26 June 2016 - 09:26 AM)

Because someone saying that doesn't make it true????

@  tffan01 : (26 June 2016 - 09:15 AM)

Why bother editin the wiki? There's always some douchebag that constantly says wiki is unreliable. Someone even said "I would trust google over TFWiki (yes he's specifically talking about TFWiki) anyday."

I think the RTS Jazz mold is one of the best modern molds ever... As Jazz. But it's not what I would really want for Nightbeat cause it just isn't much like his original self at all and I love 80s Furman Nightbeat. It just looks like Jazz painted like Nightbeat.

And Jhiaxus ehhh... The new head looks like it would help a lot but again It's a homage to the G2 guy I am interested in and this seems too far off mark there. G2 colors would be better but even then...


I'm gonna hope these are fake. If they aren't I might still get NB and might pass on Jhiaxus.


-ZacWilliam, mostly if real I'd just be disappointed with Hasbro if this was what they brought to the table for the thrilling 30th. Doing characters long requested = Good. Doing them as marginally inappropriate repaints= more likely to cheese fans off than make them happy. And they should know that.

Armada Starscream isn't "wrong" for Jhiaxus. In the past he looked like an immensely bulked up Seeker-esq design, and then he was Storm Jet/Jet Storm, and then in IDW he was suddenly evocative Movie Protoform Starscream with his original head. So there's not many consistent elements beyond looking distantly like a Starscream, which this mold does. And I love Jhiaxus so I'll buy it, (if it's real).

 

Nightbeat deserves his own mold, by gosh!


Woooo!

Oh yeah, the Armadascream mould is totally okay for Jhiaxus in my books, but why colour it like the RID toy? That's like if they'd made T30 Waspinator his Fox Kids colour scheme...

 

Also, I suppose the Jazz-Nightbeat link is that they were both Porsches?

The Armada Starscream mold's just too slender for my tastes. The FOC Seeker mold seems like a better fit for him than this.

 

Edit: Just noticed that he doesn't have hands in that pic. lol

The one that can't be made by a fan with sculpy or photoshop is just a drawing.  I don't believe it is real yet.  If it is, I will not buy them.

I'm not thrilled (snicker) with these but they'll do.  I do love me some Jazz.

 

So the Jazz mold has to be the mold with the most different heads and accessories at this point.

 

Jazz head, gun, & speakers

Stepper with Nightstick, gun, & speakers

Treadshot head, gun, & speakers

Kickoff head, gun, & speakers

Wheelie head, slingshot, & speakers

Nightbeat head, gun, & lights

 

That's not counting the SG Longarm custom stuff either.

Redmercury is a reliable source.

 

The images are Photoshopped as much as Hasbro tends to Photoshop their publicity photos (which is a lot).

 

Perhaps Jhiaxus with his previous toy colors is Hasbro's way of getting something RID into the 30th Anniversary.

I think the Jhiaxus is worse as a RiD homage/recognition than it is just as a G2 Jhaxus. As the later the colors are all wrong but it looks to have an appropriate head on a passable body. If you're looking at it from a RiD perspective it's the right colors but everything else wrong and it's an obscure non-show toy as your only line recognition in the 30th Ann. which is sad.

I'm a huge Nightbeat fan but if they wanted to do a RID homage the RTS Jazz mold as a Spychanger Hot Shot might have been nicer.


-ZacWilliam, surprised to see Windblade listed so early, didn't Hasbro say she was slated for Fall 2014 for the very end of the 30th line. And she doesn't even have a proto to show... That seems weird.

Making Jhiaxus a partial homage to the RiD toy really does seem on par for Hasbro. They do love referencing character's original toys in updates, and that technically is Jhiaxus' original toy.

 

Nightbeat is odd considering the relative lack of redecoes from past lines so far, and some people were speculating they couldn't due to budget reasons. It's not the ideal Nightbeat update, but I don't hate it at all. The mold is too nice to write it off.

 

I was kind of hoping Windblade would be a voyager. At this size, it might be too small for how ornately designed she is. Going to withhold judgement until we see an actual toy.

 

Still, Nightbeat and Jhiaxus don't really excite me enough to be must buys.

I think Hasbro said Windblade was going to be a Deluxe when they first revealed her name and design.
 
It also occurs to me that the use of the Jazz mould here suggests the leaked Hardhead listing probably will be the fabled Warpath retool after all.

I was hoping for Nightbeat from the IDW 'Bee mold. I don't think I like the idea of him as another hood-chest guy, and while I love the RTS Jazz mold, I'm kinda over it by now.

 

I really Jhiaxus will be able to clap. Otherwise, I think Hasbro's cost-cutting has gone a bit far.... :D
