I don't suppose the allspark has any criminal lawyers from Georgia. ;P

@  NotVeryKnightly : (19 July 2019 - 01:17 PM)

It seems like, with these kind of things, anything not TF-specific is either in an existing thread or just not discussed since they're not part of something deemed important enough to get its own thread already.

@  Benbot : (19 July 2019 - 12:45 PM)

Yeah, but it's for Transformers specifically

@  Gryllid : (19 July 2019 - 12:39 PM)

There is. It's called "SDCC 2019 thread"

@  Benbot : (19 July 2019 - 12:24 PM)

no general SDCC thread?

@  Benbot : (19 July 2019 - 12:08 PM)

I never even bothered to see it.

@Sabrblade Depends on when you're here. I used to have the backups happen once daily, now I have them happen once per hour so you might often see a hesitation at the top of every hour for 30-45 seconds.

We have a cornfield? Can I get a few ears?

@  Kalidor : (16 July 2019 - 12:56 PM)

And lastly, if it becomes too much hassle to deal with - it might just get sent into the cornfield and replaced with a Discord box anyway. So cool it.

@  Kalidor : (16 July 2019 - 12:55 PM)

Second thing is we do actually have the ability to ban users specifically from using Shoutbox if it's being abused like that

@  Kalidor : (16 July 2019 - 12:55 PM)

Hey all - just a reminder and heads up. The Shoutbox has been kept here as a courtesy because it's what you folks like in lieu of Discord - but a few things to remember is that P&R should stay in P&R and isn't really something that needs to be dragged out here in the most public of spaces.

@  Nevermore : (16 July 2019 - 11:04 AM)

Done.

They might as well have called it "Attack on Combiner" and given the girls 3D maneuvering devices.  :p
 
Chromia will be able to use RID Warrior Bumblebee's sword just fine, but I wonder how they'll accomplish making Arcee hold Ultimate BH Prime's sword; it'll either require a hand retool or a new handle.
 
Maybe they'll just make a new mold for the sword using most of the same CAD design. Without resizing, that sword would be obscenely huge for Arcee; well beyond FFVII Cloud level of stupidly huge.

Can we please get something else to parody other than that JLI cover?

 

The last one was already annoying. This has run the joke into the damn ground.


"Disabled people donít have special needs. We have very reasonable human needs. Our needs include freedom from abuse, violence, and mistreatment, the right to autonomy and self-direction, the right to represent ourselves, equal opportunity for education and employment, the right to accommodation, and societal inclusion and acceptance.

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."

No, with all swerve and the repeating "after" credits on the cover this has meta'd the joke to a new level.

-ZacWilliam, at this point MTMTE can milk this joke forever and I think it will never not work.

I hope "Giant Cleaver Sword" becomes a thing in this franchise, like, this specific sword design, continually popping up in different places in Transformers.

Casey Coller is not one of the artists I automatically think of when I think of "Transformers comic artists I like" but he is a very competent artist. Which among Transformers comic artists is often higher praise than it should be. I really like that cover.

 

I continue to like Tramontano's art, too, although Strongarm's looking a little too '90s T-Shirt Of Looney Tunes Characters Dressed As Hip-Hop Enthusiasts for my tastes. Doesn't feel right for her character.

But it's not. It's really just appropriating someone else's funny thing.

Sorry Razorsaw, but now that they've done the joke 3 times too many the only way to save face is to do it 5 more times so that it becomes a nonjoke that went full circle into funny again!

Cyclonus' avatar is... well, gaudy is probably too mellow of a word to describe it. And a horde of Swerves!

Living evil planet, eh? Doubt it's Unicron, but who knows.

 

 

 

COMBINER WARS FALLOUT! Because you demanded it—WINDBLADE and CHROMIA team up with ARCEE to put an end to the menace of the COMBINER WARS—but will they end each other first?!

 

I sure as heck didn't demand this. Probably no-one ever did, but hey, why not advertise the three female toys together, eh?

 

So, Arcee gets a Nemesis repaint? She probably went over to the Prime dimension, killed BH Optimus and stole his sword, by the looks of it.

 

And a new combiner revealed... and probably promptly killed off by Arcee, no doubt.

 

 

 

They might as well have called it "Attack on Combiner" and given the girls 3D maneuvering devices.  :p

 

Chromia will be able to use RID Warrior Bumblebee's sword just fine, but I wonder how they'll accomplish making Arcee hold Ultimate BH Prime's sword; it'll either require a hand retool or a new handle.

 

Maybe they'll just make a new mold for the sword using most of the same CAD design. Without resizing, that sword would be obscenely huge for Arcee; well beyond FFIV Cloud level of stupidly huge.

 

What makes you think they will repaint/re-release the toys? Arcee has new paint apps but not the others.

I guess Combiner Hunters will probably be timed to come out the Wednesday before or after Hasbro's SDCC presentation.

And those redecoes from the covers will be an SDCC-exclusive three-pack, I'd wager.

Also, not a fan of that holoavatar. Very overdesigned, if you ask me, like some flamboyant anime villain. I've felt the same about most of Milne's avatar designs, unlike Guidi's inside #13.
