The real Drifts were the Windblades we made along the way

@  PlutoniumBoss : (23 November 2020 - 02:25 AM)

Drift-kun 2 Electric Boobylube

@  ▲ndrusi : (22 November 2020 - 11:36 PM)

I'm pretty sure Drift 2 was Empire of Stone.

@  Sabrblade : (22 November 2020 - 10:06 PM)

I thought people said Prime Wheeljack was Drift 2.

@  Maximus Ambus : (22 November 2020 - 03:51 PM)

Windblade was Drift.2.

@  TheMightyMol... : (22 November 2020 - 02:44 PM)

Drift with boobs.

@  Rycochet : (22 November 2020 - 11:50 AM)

I can't imagine a live action movie version of Windblade being all that different from Drift. Not my thing, but not the worst thing I've ever seen.

@  Bass X0 : (22 November 2020 - 09:54 AM)

The thought of Movie aesthetic Windblade makes me feel sick.

@  NotVeryKnightly : (22 November 2020 - 08:47 AM)

Though, the fact that Japanese people would pay for Windblade toys in the $30-40 range doesn't mean they'd pay however much MPs are going for now.

@  NotVeryKnightly : (22 November 2020 - 08:44 AM)

Back when I made a habit of checking Mandarake for pre-owned TFs, Windblade's toys went for surprisingly high prices. By which I mean not lower than the original price.

@  Maximus Ambus : (22 November 2020 - 08:15 AM)

If she's in the next movie you might get her.

@  unluckiness : (22 November 2020 - 07:58 AM)

Japan didn't get most of the IDW comics and are the target market for MP. They basically know windblade from a few crappy pack-in comics and a show that wasn't particularly popular there. Unless they start cranking out Cyberverse MPs, it's not very likely.

@  TheMightyMol... : (22 November 2020 - 04:24 AM)

Again, depends if she's popular enough in Japan to warrant it. Our view of which characters are popular is not the same as Takara's.

@  Bass X0 : (22 November 2020 - 01:53 AM)

So characters like Windblade then.

@  TheMightyMol... : (21 November 2020 - 07:19 PM)

They're complicated and expensive to design. By necessity, they're gonna be restricted to well-known characters who are more likely to sell.

@  Bass X0 : (21 November 2020 - 07:05 PM)

I don’t think Masterpiece toys should be restricted to only show characters.

@  Rycochet : (21 November 2020 - 03:09 PM)

If she wasn't in the Sunbow cartoon, Live Action movie or Beast Wars and can't be repainted from someone else, she's not getting an MP.

@  wonko the sane? : (21 November 2020 - 12:44 PM)

They'll make their money back if they include the metal thong...

@  TheMightyMol... : (21 November 2020 - 12:29 PM)

Is she popular enough in Japan that Takara would even try?

@  Paladin : (21 November 2020 - 11:23 AM)

depends. will that one also have a giant metal thong?

@  Bass X0 : (21 November 2020 - 11:10 AM)

Should there be a Masterpiece Windblade?

@  -LittleAutob... : (20 November 2020 - 12:46 PM)

@  wonko the sane? : (20 November 2020 - 09:08 AM)

@  ▲ndrusi : (19 November 2020 - 11:45 PM)

that's eight words

@  Maximus Ambus : (19 November 2020 - 12:41 PM)

It's great how they reference G1 concepts like this one features the harmony from the episode Carnage in C Minor and and Slugslingers featured anti electrons from Grimlocks New Brain.

@  Steevy Maximus : (18 November 2020 - 10:01 PM)

Or at least those little story blurbs like Beast Hunters had. Especially for stuff like Selects which tend to exist in their own little side world

@  Maximus Ambus : (17 November 2020 - 04:03 PM)

I got me Legends Soundwave, Be cool if the next Generations toyline had a mini comic with the instructions.

@  Tm_Silverclaw : (14 November 2020 - 11:56 PM)

I swear though.. The idea of "Catch up" is stupid.

@  TM2-Megatron : (14 November 2020 - 11:25 PM)

That's irritating, but it sounds par for the course with new hardware release. Within a year, there'll probably be some good stuff out there that does it all.

@  Tm_Silverclaw : (14 November 2020 - 11:23 PM)

4K/HDR switches are.. iffy.. Because most of them can't do 4K and HDR at the same time.. Or can't do 120hz... and all sorts of things the new TVs have built in, and the new consoles use...

@  TM2-Megatron : (14 November 2020 - 11:18 PM)

Maybe now that the PS5's made the whole 4K thing a little more mainstream, the hardware will start becoming more common. I know that's one of the hopes the physical media community has for the 100GB discs the PS5 is going to be using. Prior to this, they were very expensive tor replicate compared to a regular blu-ray and not used very often

@  TM2-Megatron : (14 November 2020 - 11:17 PM)

Up to now, there really haven't been a whole lot of 4K disc players to choose from... Samsung stopped making them altogether when they couldn't compete with the others, so your main choices are a few models of Panasonic or Sony

@  TM2-Megatron : (14 November 2020 - 11:14 PM)

Is there no such thing as a 4K/HDR switch yet?

@  Tm_Silverclaw : (14 November 2020 - 10:10 PM)

Which is fine.. But that still doesn't explain why they arn't putting out up to date HDMI switch boxes to get.. more money.

@  TM2-Megatron : (14 November 2020 - 09:59 PM)

My only TV with a respectable number of ports is my OLED 4K/3D, which has 4 HDMI, 2 USB 2.0s, 1 USB 3.0 and some weird proprietary thing that acts as both component and composite, depending on what you need. But it retailed for $10k when it first came out (I bought it 14 months later for less than half that). THey're going to get as many corners on less expensive sets as they can, which usually means only providing 2 HDMIs.

@  TM2-Megatron : (14 November 2020 - 09:55 PM)

I mean, there are some decent ones for under a grand. But yeah, I imagine that's what they're thinking. Most people I know, unless they're film or A/V aficionados, all they've got hooked up to their TV is a digital cable receiver and perhaps a game console and dated DVD player

@  Tm_Silverclaw : (14 November 2020 - 09:45 PM)

TM2-Megatron... If that is their assumptions.. That is one of the stupidest way to think.. Especially since Multichannel receivers way to fricken expensive for that. 3000 is way to expensive.

@  TM2-Megatron : (14 November 2020 - 09:11 PM)

They probably assume the people who actually need a lot of ports are the type of consumers who'd have a decently high-end Multichannel receiver. Whereas those people who don't need many connections probably don't even have a blu-ray player or anything. Maybe just a gaming console for the kids and an old DVD player.

@  wonko the sane? : (14 November 2020 - 04:04 PM)

I saw that movie. I don't want jim carrey in my head.

@  Maximus Ambus : (14 November 2020 - 03:43 PM)

Soon beam TV programs into brains with a neural transciever anyway.

@  wonko the sane? : (14 November 2020 - 03:28 PM)

I'm surprised they keep reducing the number of ports on TV's.

@  Tm_Silverclaw : (14 November 2020 - 02:52 PM)

Ahh.. No.. I mean an HDMI 2.1 switcher box to give you more imputs on a TV. :D Those should have been released in preparation of the XSX and PS5 considering their touting 2.1 features. :D

@  Maximus Ambus : (14 November 2020 - 02:25 PM)

Switch Pro, not even a thing.

@  wonko the sane? : (14 November 2020 - 02:09 PM)

Wait... I read your statement wrong: I thought you meant the switch version 2.

@  Tm_Silverclaw : (14 November 2020 - 01:32 PM)

You do realize that the department that would be focusing on the HDMI 2.1 switch box would be different than the department working on PS5s?

@  wonko the sane? : (14 November 2020 - 01:05 PM)

And nintendo wasn't competing with others for marketshare at the time.

@  wonko the sane? : (14 November 2020 - 12:54 PM)

Probably because there's already enough demand on the manufacturing infrastructure to pump out two of the three consoles at the same time? Nintendo's last release saw people waiting literal months for stock shortfalls to end.

@  Tm_Silverclaw : (14 November 2020 - 12:33 PM)

I just want to ask, why did no company get an HDMI 2.1 switch out in time for PS5/XSX

Is there a particular way of denoting errors of English usage in media, or do they just go under 'Errors'? Secrets and Lies issue 3 uses 'erstwhile replacement', which is a mistake, since 'erstwhile' means 'former', and 'former replacement' is nonsense. Furman's done things like this before (e.g. writing 'indigent species' when he meant 'indigenous species'), but I can't quickly find a documented example on the wiki to serve as a model for writing this up. I just wish I could work out what 'erstwhile' ought to be!

I see "erstwhile" used in a way that suggests it means something like "reliable" or "worthy" or "indefatigable" with some frequency, so my guess is that it's not a "wrong word" issue so much as a "wrong definition" situation.

You talk about continuity but the page says "Sentinel Zeta Prime" fought against the Quintessons and was close to Alpha Trion. Don't you see this come from G1 ???? In this case, it is Sentinel Prime, not Zeta Prime. So think before you speak. If we truly apply your false point of view, then we should call this character Sentinel Nova Nominus Zeta Prime.

 

So I can clearly not choose the wine in front of you.

 

 

Your "Sentinel Zeta Prime" is so unrealistic for Sentinel is the mentor of Optimus WHEREAS Zeta is not the mentor of Optimus. You could say Sentinel and Zeta are the predecessors of Optimus, but then so are Alpha, Nominus and Nova. So then, Sentinel Zeta Alpha Nova Nominus Prime is the predecessor of Optimus. So then, Sentinel Zeta Alpha Nova Nominus Prime is the predecessor of Optimus. You are completely out of the reality.

 

So I can clearly not choose the wine in front of me!

The page for Jeff Anderson currently claims his first issue as an artist was UK #65, but he is credited as early as "Raiders of the Last Ark", beginning with #18.

 

Is there a reasoning behind leaving out his previous contributions, or did those just get overlooked?

https://tfwiki.net/w...ollected_Comics



The majority of the stories reprinted as part of the Collected Comics series were UK exclusives; however Collected Comics 1 and 2 were reprints of the US 4 issue miniseries (with an altered ending to remove the cliffhanger).


https://tfwiki.net/w...te_Works_Part_2



Uniquely[Someone check Collected Comics #2] amongst the printings, however, is the altered ending of "The Last Stand". In this version, Shockwave never strikes and the series ends with Optimus Prime declaring the Decepticons defeated once and for all.

 

https://tfwiki.net/w...roduction_notes



The more famous alternate ending (pictured at right) appeared in Marvel UK's 1987 Transformers: The Complete Works Part 2, in which the final panel of the penultimate page (in which Shockwave strikes) is removed and replaced with two panels of Optimus Prime declaring the Decepticons defeated once and for all.

 

Can anyone verify whether Collected Comics #2 indeed has the alternate ending or not?

 

 

 

Also, if someone owns UK issue #244, I'd like to have a clean scan of this panel, including the gutter above it:

Resurrection_Gambit_printing_error.jpg  

 

This panel is from US issue #57, but the US printing had a printing error (namely, half of Megatron's face from the panel above it repeated and pasted across the narration caption) that was reproduced in the Titan "Primal Scream" trade, and the IDW "Classics" reprint retouched it to fix the error (as seen above).

Resurrection_Gambit_Titan_Primal_Scream.jpg

 

The UK #244 printing lacks the error entirely, and presents the panel (and the narration caption) exactly the way as originally intended.

Screenshot (244).png

 

I'd also like to have a scan of the same panel as presented in IDW's earlier "Transformers: Magazine" #4 reprint. Was the error present there, or not?
