i remember the missile gears malfuctioned a lot. damn thing once shot me in the middle of the night.

@  Fenix Twilight : (17 December 2017 - 06:54 PM)

Just transformed Unicron probably for the first time since I got him in 03, fun stuff. Still would like a new version but since they just did another release last year I guess we're stuck with that mold.

@  Shrug : (17 December 2017 - 06:16 PM)

Yeah, I think that might work on the red one, if I can find a neon enough yellow

@  SHIELD Agent 47 : (17 December 2017 - 06:10 PM)

How about neon yellow/green? Like on Krok?

@  Shrug : (17 December 2017 - 05:45 PM)

I'm dealing with a black/grey robot and a red/black robot.

@  Shrug : (17 December 2017 - 05:44 PM)

I'm thinking of making some figures "G2" with minor paint additions: a little panel lining, probably. What colors in small amounts make you think G2?

@  Nevermore : (17 December 2017 - 05:41 PM)

Don't worry, it was grammatically correct, it just wasn't "fluent". :)

Scheiße.

@  SHIELD Agent 47 : (17 December 2017 - 03:22 PM)

Damn. I initially thought of writing "Herzliche Glückwünsche", but I thought that didn't fit because we don't know each other in real life. But I forgot to check for quantity after dropping "Herzliche".

@  TM2-Megatron : (17 December 2017 - 03:14 PM)

It'll be nice when they finally perfect universal translation algorithms

@  Nevermore : (17 December 2017 - 02:43 PM)

In German, you only pluralize "Glückwunsch" when it's several people congratulating someone. As in, "I received everyone's congratulations."

@  Nevermore : (17 December 2017 - 02:42 PM)

That's actually a hypercorrect literal translation that immediately reveals you as a non-native speaker.

@  SHIELD Agent 47 : (17 December 2017 - 01:04 PM)

Glückwünsche!

@  ILoveDinobot : (17 December 2017 - 12:34 PM)

And top top it all off, my employer will offer a one-off bonus for moving to permanent late shift, and another annual bonus if I stay on permanent late shift for an entire year.

@  Nevermore : (17 December 2017 - 11:10 AM)

That's basically my personal dream shift.

No more getting up early. Also, every work week will be from Monday to Friday, with the weekends off.

@  TM2-Megatron : (17 December 2017 - 02:18 AM)

TBH, the use of the word "boudoir" seemed a bit more out of place to me than the humour... has a non-English Terran language ever been established as existing in Star Wars before?

@  PlutoniumBoss : (17 December 2017 - 01:28 AM)

It's not like it's a big deal anyway. I mean, anything with Aurebesh in it is demonstrably non-canon, because there's no X in Aurebesh so X-Wings wouldn't be called X-Wings, right?

@  unitremover : (16 December 2017 - 11:48 PM)

@  unitremover : (16 December 2017 - 11:47 PM)

Yeah, TLJ felt a lot more mindful about when it broke out the quips/jokes than I think the Marvel movie comparison implies

@  2017 : (16 December 2017 - 09:35 PM)

I'm fine with the humour because the rest of the universe feels legit, and it's not ten quips a minute like those bloody Marvel movies.

@  Waspinator : (16 December 2017 - 09:22 PM)

Less than 3 hours to go, now

@  TM2-Megatron : (16 December 2017 - 08:11 PM)

Also, it can't be worse than those awful "sarcastic" jokes in the beginning of AotC that were meant to establish a camaraderie between Anakin and Obi-Wan where it was clear that none existed.

@  TM2-Megatron : (16 December 2017 - 08:09 PM)

Doesn't sound like something I'll be bothered by; movies have to change at least a little bit with the times

@  Waspinator : (16 December 2017 - 07:59 PM)

Yeah, there was some sarcastic humor that wasn't really present in the classic movies

@  Steevy Maximus : (16 December 2017 - 02:00 PM)

I didn't have a problem with it. But it DOES skew a bit more "modern" in ways the humor of prior films didn't, short maybe Rogue One

@  TM2-Megatron : (16 December 2017 - 01:20 PM)

I'm staying spoiler-free until I see it tonight, but a number of people seem really angry at the humour in the film

@  TM2-Megatron : (16 December 2017 - 01:19 PM)

I've already noticed some backlash against it over on blu-ray.com, but a lot of it seems to stem from anger about the Disney/Fox deal

An adult show to give the true Transformers fan what they want.

 

Transformers: Buckets of Blood.

 

Megatron and the Decepticons (using only the pure Sunbow season 1&2 lineup) invade the Earth. Every episode they kill as many people as they can with their fists and feet.

 

Optimus Prime and his Sunbow seasons 1&2 friends must stop them. They are powered by a process like Powermasters, but instead of men turning into their engines, they must snap people open and use their blood to power them.

 

Hot Rod is also in it but he is a stupid idiot fool and he dies each week in a gruesome and ironic way. 

 

50% of the scripts each week is dialogue directly lifted from TFTM.

To most Cybertronians, the most scariest creatures to them are usually off world. But what lies beneath.....only a few have the questionable honor of knowing. Sure, there's Mutants, Demons, Trans-Organics, even the occasional Sparkeater-but they're what is allowed to leak to the surfaces. Eldritch entities, corpses with their inner energon dried out and sewn together shambling around, viruses that take over and mimic the CNA from inside a Cybertronian body until mutating the body beyond recognizance, and things which are impossible to describe. The faction's highest leaders have agreed to set aside differences for protection against these entities, keeping certain areas off limits from their troops, while inter-faction squadrons go in to take care of problems. They don't always come out, and those that do aren't always the same person they were before....or even alive at all.

This is meant as a gag series, something that operates on a mix of "rule of cool" and "rule of funny". 

 

 

Transformers: Dis-Unit:E

 

Once upon a time, Mesogalove was a top Quintesson scientist. A wretched excuse for a sentient being, but a top scientist. Then he backed the wrong faction in an internal dispute, forcing him to flee the planet. 

 

...But other than that, everything was going just fine until he landed on Earth and UNIT:E found him. 

 

Given his ability to take on human size and appearance, the UNIT:E operatives responsible for his case rushed to assemble a quick cover story. His new, human guise is Mason Glover, a visiting British researcher who has come to study American systems; any eccentricities, they figured, would be down to either his being foreign or his being in the midst of a mid-life crisis. 

 

In order to actually hide him, they shipped him off to Rexburg, Idaho, home of sleeper agent and not-quite-playboy millionaire [male lead 2]. A few years ago, [male lead 2] combined his knowledge of business and [supplementary character 1]'s knowledge of computers to create the A-37 algorithm, an investment algorithm that they sold to a major trading firm for millions plus royalties; as long as the firm continues within the limitations of the algorithm, it can't fail. That the pair are using the newer, more robust B-27 algorithm for their own personal investments is besides the point...

 

Given [male lead 2]'s status as one of the two people behind it and his occasionally serving as professor at the college in town, it made sense for him to play host... never mind the fact that he's already busy being Batman / Captain America. He's actually a Titans Return-style headmaster and the operator of a transtector that turns into an F-4 outfitted with a custom wild weasel package. 

 

They are soon joined by [female lead], a humanoid alien bounty hunter who was sent to retrieve Mesogalove until [male lead 2]... "convinced" her to knock it off. She, too, is now - in a human guise - hanging out at his place. 

 

Mesagalove will eventually get his own transtector... a 1980's-style van with airbrushed artwork consisting of his Quintesson form and the words "Quintesson Express". [Female lead]'s transtector will be a beast form based on the animal her species is based on (either a cat or a fox; trying to decide). 

 

 

 

Mormon Batman.

 

The Quintesson Manhunter.

 

Animal Girl Hawkgirl.

 

They might just save the world... if they don't kill each other first.

You know Starscream's coronation gear, or the capes all the bad guys had in Zone? That.

Everybody gets capes, more ornate helmets, maybe swords all over. Like, a big emphasis on not just battle gear, but battle regalia.

 

Also literally no combat and all fighitng is done via musical contest at dive bars.

A Transformers version of Batman: The Brave and the Bold.
With musical numbers.

 

 

Stoic, by-the-book straight man Optimus Prime fights the Decepticon threat across time and space, backed up by a revolving force of high-concept Autobots/Maximals based on mission - many of them a bit obscure, with Prime just as likely to team up with the ghost of Guardian Prime against the nightmarish Violin Jiger as he is to try & stop over-eager cadet Hot Shot from charging Fort Syk solo as he is to challenge Megatron to a primetime wrestling match. (Megatron cheats by getting Fracture to rush in with a chair when Prime's not looking)

Sunbow/Earthforce aesthetics with modern-day writing styles.
 

Whether Prime transforms into a neon superstreet luge is unconfirmed.

The Decepticons are voiced by Dan Avidan and Arin Hanson.

Now I can't stop thinking about Transformers The Brave And The Bold - or "Transformers: Prime Time!" as it would have to be called.

 

I see the exposition being provided by T-Ai, who works as the Al to Prime's Sam Beckett.

 

Optimus has to go undercover in the Decepticons and paints himself black, calls himself Scourge, and tries to talk 'evil'.

Ambitious Mini-Con Clench finds a way to hijack Megatron and uses him to conquer the Mini cities - and the only Mini-Cons free to help Optimus are the X-TREME teens of the Street Action Team.

See, I was thinking that Scourge would instead be an eeeevil clone of Optimus, and the brother of Megaplex, who's really quite nice once you get to know him. They're created by Jhiaxus.

(Scourge would later come back, assembling a team called "the Sweeps", which consists of clones of Optimus that look like his equivalents from other continuities. They're all good guys and not really sure why Scourge wants them to be evil.)

He could brainwash them or in TF terms, reprogram them to be evil or they could be evil Optimus clones from other realities and the leader is Scourge Prime, from Universe 1, similar to how there is mutable verisons of the Flash in the TV series Flash, Jhiaxus could boast that he created them using a cloning means and said there was some kind of error in the clone procress which is why they look similar yet different (different bodies and transformations) yet the truth would be Jhiaxus didn't create clones, he simply adducted the other bots from their realities while they were recharging their enegries and reprogram them, while Scourge No 1 thinks he in charge of things but he just a puppet and a pawn in a larger game playing by another bot or being.

An episode where Optimus has to go undercover at a zoo with some oddball beastformers like Longrack and Break and winds up having to spend the entire episode as a gorilla.
"He learned, almost too late, that man is a feeling creature and, because of it, the greatest in the universe. He learned, too late for himself, that men have to make their own way, to make their own mistakes. There can't be any gift of perfection from outside ourselves. And, when men seek such perfection, they find there's only death, fire, loss, disillusionment, the end of everything that's gone forward. Men have always sought an end to toil and misery. It can't be given; it has to be achieved. There is hope, but it has to come from inside, from man himself."
