@  wlg3 : (28 April 2017 - 01:15 AM)

I really enjoy the creative sub forums of TFW, though, like their kitbash and fan art forums. The creative forums have lots of talented, friendly people and is an active, supportive community.

@  wlg3 : (28 April 2017 - 01:13 AM)

Gotta agree with Evac... TFW has a lot of cool, talented people, but they're overwhelmingly outnumbered by unbearable neckbeards

@  LordGigaIce : (27 April 2017 - 10:20 PM)

I do enjoy the TFW podcast. and that subforum's usually very civil. It's the best place to actually talk about TFers there :D also the Radicons forum is ok if you just like looking at kitbash pr0n

@  Evac : (27 April 2017 - 10:18 PM)

There's some cool people on the site, thankfully. It's just the morons tend to outnumber them... Which is generally the rule on most forums thanks to the GIFT.

@  Evac : (27 April 2017 - 10:17 PM)

In all honesty, the better parts of the site are the non-TF parts.

@  LordGigaIce : (27 April 2017 - 10:13 PM)

yeah, and their love of 3p is just...i don't get it.

@  Noideaforaname : (27 April 2017 - 10:03 PM)

TFW can be... literal with the rules sometimes. Like, a discussion about favorite human characters gets LOCKED if you mention Agent Fowler because "all Prime discussion belongs in the RiD forums".

@  LordGigaIce : (27 April 2017 - 09:48 PM)

Also, as far as TFW's No Politics goes...it's nice in theory but then you end up with the current IDW stories that lean HEAVILY into politics and religion. I've had more than a few lengthy posts exploring the parallels between the IDW Decepticon movement and various real world socialist movements deleted because it was technically "politics." So hug 'em. I really only visit there these days to poke around the podcast subforum.

@  LordGigaIce : (27 April 2017 - 09:45 PM)

My person canon is that the Quintessons created Cybertron as a factory to make the TFers as mechs, but they became self aware and they revolted. then Cybertronian society began to develop and the events of the revolt became mythologised as the stories of the Knights of Cyberton, the Thirteen, etc...real events that became the basis for religion, essentially.

@  Rycochet : (27 April 2017 - 06:49 PM)

Transformers believe they were created by <X>, others believe they were created by <Y> and/or <Z>. There are lots of theories, disagreements but ultimately nobody knows for sure.

@  Noideaforaname : (27 April 2017 - 05:11 PM)

Squid robits build machines. Machines decide they had enough of that and kicked the squid robits off the planet. Everything's pretty chill for a while until machines get mad for dumb reasons and break the planet. THE END

@  Bass X0 : (27 April 2017 - 04:22 PM)

Primus created Cybertron and The Thirteen. Then later, the Quintessons come to the planet they call Seibertron and use Primus' power; the plasma energy chamber to forge military robots Destrons and consumer robots Cybertrons. The Cybertrons and Destrons rise up and drive the Quintessons away but are unable to live in peace with each other. And so the Cybertron population become the Autobot army and the Destrons become Decepticons, with the Autobots renaming their planet Cybertron. Far far later still, bacteria that was present on the asteroid Primus imprisoned himself within has evolved into organic life within Cybertron...

@  Evac : (27 April 2017 - 03:35 PM)

But aside from the ending Trent and Siph made for them at FunPub, the 3H Wreckers comics kinda sucked.

@  Evac : (27 April 2017 - 03:34 PM)

That's what the 3H Wreckers comics kind of did, actually.

@  wonko the sane? : (27 April 2017 - 03:30 PM)

So, what? The maker of the makers kinda thing?

@  Bass X0 : (27 April 2017 - 02:55 PM)

My fanon is both the Quintesson and Primus origins. They're compatible.

@  Rycochet : (27 April 2017 - 02:37 PM)

I prefer the profile book/movie interpretation of the Quintessons, a race whose entire purpose is to capture and execute those who escape Unicron.

@  Noideaforaname : (27 April 2017 - 02:03 PM)

I like the Quintesson origin partly because it's a twist on the robot revolution cliche, partly because of the irony of a people uniting against their own creators just to fall into endless civil war, and mostly because i just really like the Quintessons themselves.

@  Diecast : (27 April 2017 - 12:03 PM)

I preferred the Primus origin until it became the more common origin, fiction wise.

@  ▲ndrusi : (27 April 2017 - 11:08 AM)

Since the analogy to humans isn't perfect, it could also be interpreted as closer to "maternity ward."

@  Locoman : (27 April 2017 - 11:02 AM)

I think the most unfortunately named Transformer in their society would probably be Hot Spot, which is like having a human named "Placenta."

@  Locoman : (27 April 2017 - 11:02 AM)

Confusing, I bet.

Hollywood Reporter is saying that Pom Klementieff, who appeared in the recent "Oldboy" remake, has been cast in "Guardians of the Galaxy 2".

No word yet on what her role is, but the article says that Marvel was specifically looking for an Asian actress.

Cue the wild random guessing...

Mantis is the most likely choice, given they were specifically looking for an asian actress.

Pretty much.

 

Thrilled with that, if true. Will also accept Phyla-Vell and Moondragon (returned from the dead via the power of one of the Infinity Stones).

Oh an ultra snarky Moondragon would rock but, yeah, it's probably a deadpan Mantis. They need to change color tones though. Too much green. Gamora, Drax, Mantis, Moondragon are all green-ish.

Maybe Moondragon's costume is green but she's kind of human colored.

I've seen and heard Gunn mention a few times that he plans to keep Quill as the only human, so Mantis would be a very good guess. But who knows!

Well, Drax isn't human and doesn't seem like he ever was, so they could simply make her Drax's daughter who Thanos killed.

But it's also totally a non-issue since she's obviously Mantis.

 

That being said, who would be a good Moondragon? Olivia Wilde would be good, but rumor has it she's Marvel's top choice for Captain Marvel now.

Technically Mantis is a half-Vietnamese, half-German Metahuman (Enhanced by a religious sect of Kree) from Earth, but I doubt that will be in the movie.

Oh, wow. See, I just always assumed from the "Celestial Madonna" thing that she wasn't from Earth. I never did find her early stuff to read, but I love her costume from back then.

And yeah, if Drax is no longer Arthur Douglas, then all bets are off and anyone can be from anywhere.

I'm absolutely down for Kurt Russell joining the MCU. And I'm also looking forward to caring about Mantis for the first time ever.

 

 

"Celestial" is an old, racist term for Asian people, as well.

 

 

I was half-convinced Deadwood made that term up. It's by far the nicest-sounding racist insult I've ever heard.

Stallone was seeing leaving a hotel where cast members are staying... with a script in his hand.

 

This has led to speculation that Stallone might now somehow be involved in the filming.
