Wonderful audio separation and balance.

@  Steevy Maximus : (30 November 2020 - 09:29 PM)

For Transformers The Movie 86

@  Steevy Maximus : (30 November 2020 - 09:28 PM)

I will say, the blu ray remaster, especially the audio is pretty spot on. Watching it on Apple TV has been enlightening.

@  SHIELD Agent 47 : (30 November 2020 - 09:00 PM)

Vode An!

@  SHIELD Agent 47 : (30 November 2020 - 08:59 PM)

I do not overly care for the Bad Batch, but it will be interesting to see what the animated series will bring to the table.

@  SHIELD Agent 47 : (30 November 2020 - 08:59 PM)

Alpha, Delta Squad, Omega Squad, and the Muunilinst 10 are quite the contrast to what we have at present in Disney canon.

@  SHIELD Agent 47 : (30 November 2020 - 08:57 PM)

Who else here read the pre-2008 Clone Commandos and ARC Troopers back in the day?

@  tigerhawk : (30 November 2020 - 05:04 PM)

Monoliths in Utah and Romania.

@  Sabrblade : (29 November 2020 - 05:11 PM)

Also, the face of the black redeco is painted gray.

@  Sabrblade : (29 November 2020 - 05:09 PM)

To be a little fair, the original was also lacking in more detailed color. The Telemocha Series figure fixed that.

@  TheMightyMol... : (29 November 2020 - 05:05 PM)

The unpainted face and all the greys make that look like a knockoff.

@  Sabrblade : (29 November 2020 - 05:01 PM)

One could headcanon this one as such.

@  Otaku : (29 November 2020 - 01:06 PM)

@Bass X0 Weird how they come close, with the likes of Onyx Primal and Nemesis Prime (Universe 2003), but no actual evil gorilla...

Oh my god! WFC ravage is adorable! Who's a pudgy kitty? Yes you are!

@  tigerhawk : (28 November 2020 - 09:50 AM)

The 86 line prevented made me reconsider a new years resolution.

And Devastator because I'm a sucker for combiners

@  unluckiness : (28 November 2020 - 04:32 AM)

Decided to stick with the main cast from 2007 and a few assorted ones here and there.

@  TheMightyMol... : (27 November 2020 - 02:02 PM)

I said I wouldn't buy a lot, now I have seven. And at least three might be on the culling pile.

@  tigerhawk : (27 November 2020 - 11:44 AM)

"I'll just get one" I said now I have almost twenty Studio Series figures.

@  wonko the sane? : (27 November 2020 - 11:19 AM)

The geese are fleeing... death comes soon...

@  unluckiness : (25 November 2020 - 07:20 PM)

Not even head, just a faceeven

@  TheMightyMol... : (25 November 2020 - 12:58 PM)

Just stick a Megatron head on Optimal Optimus.

@  Sabrblade : (25 November 2020 - 12:46 PM)

There was also an evil-looking black and gray redeco of the RobotMasters toy

@  Arazyr : (25 November 2020 - 11:54 AM)

That's KIND-OF what I consider the Throne of the Primes Primal to be...

@  wonko the sane? : (25 November 2020 - 11:16 AM)

I would buy the hell out a nemesis primal...

@  Bass X0 : (25 November 2020 - 11:15 AM)

I'm surprised there's not been a Nemesis Primal given all the Nemesis Primes.

@  unluckiness : (23 November 2020 - 03:17 AM)

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.

@  tigerhawk : (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.

@  tigerhawk : (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)

So you were hired by a middle easterner! AHA!

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

Ignoring the wall of text aspect of the wall of text, the one thing I'd like to call out is that I don't think Kage would know anything about how Iro would be connected to YPNR. Correct me if I'm forgetting something.

I uh actually can’t be completely sure, but i could have sworn his unique nature came up at some point. Although i huess some ‘off-panel’ fudging could be done to cover it/


Also, sorry about the wall of text. Even trying to summarise things a lot, that took up more space than i thought it would.

I guess it demonstrates two different issues. With Iro, I was running on the thought that weird quirks with him were pretty obviously known but direct connection to YPNR hadn't come up yet due to him not being as forefront in the story. I probably would have structured things different or at least shifted my thought processes if so. And a lot is probably my own fault considering Iro's origins are probably a bit of an open secret at this point in real time. Concerning the post size, the issue sorta shifts to being an issue of in universe time as I try to keep Kage and EB roughly in line with Dee, Night Cap, and Beathra. It's also a lot that would be coming Judeen's way at once (though she would be respectful enough to quietly listen). But there is a massive counterpoint and one I will overtly thank you for--the text is of Kage interacting with someone instead of just monologuing to himself, I actually have something to work with. And I don't mean Kage and Omega Knight discussing things but more the STOMP problem.

And sorry for if there was a bit of snark in the initial response. The global situation, things finally culminating in the story, and standard GM worries are probably colliding.

EDIT: One final thing, just what did Kage say about Monday? Working on the reply post right now.

No worries Zam, i didn’t think it was snark at all. It really was a wall of text. :)


Also, what you say does change my view a bit. I mean, looking back on it, i’m not so sure now that knowing Iro was ‘created’ would lead to YPNR. I am les certain now of that. So i can edit that a bit if need be.


As for March Monday, Kage wouldn’t be able to say much beyond hologram AI lady with a bad attitude, who was very clearly taking orders from somebody else above Cupid Thunder. :)

My character writing isn't inconsistent, it's just that you can't fit the entire memory of an ancient spirit into a mortal brain.


Also, I'd like to do that: Take a shot at dredging up some dim memories of the cataclysm.

That would be a fascinating bit of mystery building. Your character has always been more than he seens, even before he discovered the potential of what he was and has become. The idea of the ancient force being aware of the end makes sense. As does the idea of his mortal form only being a vessel for some of himself. What ‘some’ that is, is intriguing.


Also Zam, your comment about my Lage/Omega inner monologues got my thinking. Though i otiginally did it more for fun and the ‘loner’ aspect of the character. It has, albeit unintentionally, really come to embody how isolated Kage has made himself. Since, other than Oracle, he been talking in circles his entire life. Now he has to act more openly and his friends/teammates along, he’s having to actually talk aloud, rather than just talking to himself.


I wish i could say that i meant it this way intentionally, but i’m not that smart. :)

So what kind of roll do I need to do this memory search thing? I assume it's going to be different than a normal knowledge check.

It's really the only thing I think will work unless you have other suggestions.
