The failed Hasbroverse reminds me how so many things could have been spun off from Transformers: Animated and (after that) Transformers: Prime.

@  ▲ndrusi : (18 September 2020 - 12:43 PM)

Requiem of the Wreckers was post-Revolution, but it was also, you know, a single issue.

@  NotVeryKnightly : (18 September 2020 - 11:06 AM)

But Roche didn't have a series to keep out from the crossovers since Sins of the Wreckers was before Revolution.

@  NotVeryKnightly : (18 September 2020 - 11:01 AM)

Oh wait, that post said Roche, not Barber.

@  Rycochet : (18 September 2020 - 10:46 AM)

And then seemed surprised nobody particlarly wanted it.

@  NotVeryKnightly : (18 September 2020 - 10:25 AM)

Wasn't Barber among the editorial guys that pushed for Hasbroverse?

@  Maximus Ambus : (18 September 2020 - 10:19 AM)

He did it possibly due to 616 Spider-Mans marriage reset between Civil War and Secret Invasion.

@  ▲ndrusi : (18 September 2020 - 09:20 AM)

Bendis kept a tight leash on Ultimate Spider-Man because it was mostly set far away from Earth?

@  -LittleAutob... : (18 September 2020 - 08:49 AM)

I'm learning so much-

@  Maruten : (18 September 2020 - 04:21 AM)

At its worst it was better than MASK, sure.

@  Maximus Ambus : (18 September 2020 - 02:15 AM)

At it's worst it still stomped all over the failed Hasbroverse. Roberts and Roche kept their respective series well out of that one for the same reasons Bendis kept a tight leash on Ultimate Spider-Man when Loeb and Miller wanted greater control for Ultimatum.

@  Maruten : (17 September 2020 - 06:37 PM)

That's so accurate it's physically painful.

@  Rycochet : (17 September 2020 - 02:05 PM)

The Red Dwarf of Transformers? An interesting, innovative and genuinely funny series that descended into a self referential mess of cliches that continues long after it should have been put out to pasture and rendered nerly everyone thoroughly unlikeable? That seems about right.

@  Bass X0 : (17 September 2020 - 01:59 PM)

MTMTE and Lost Light are the Red Dwarf of Transformers stories, as opposed to the others which are more like Star Wars and Star Trek.

@  Kalidor : (17 September 2020 - 01:37 PM)

Anyone in CONUS want a Skylynx for $100 shipped?

@  Maximus Ambus : (17 September 2020 - 01:34 PM)

Maybe an acquired taste in that's in that it's from a fan raised on the UK run where Transformers wasn't taken so seriously in many stories, especially some Earthforce standalones.

@  Paladin : (17 September 2020 - 09:47 AM)

so, terrible?

@  ▲ndrusi : (17 September 2020 - 09:26 AM)

Yeah I think at that point Lost Light is just the '86 movie without the soundtrack.

@  NotVeryKnightly : (17 September 2020 - 02:28 AM)

So, exctly what Triangleman just said.

@  Bass X0 : (17 September 2020 - 12:36 AM)

A few of the same characters.

@  ▲ndrusi : (17 September 2020 - 12:07 AM)

Now having actually read Galaxies #10, I don't actually see what it has in common with Lost Light at all besides featuring Ultra Magnus, Chromedome, and a spaceship.

@  ▲ndrusi : (16 September 2020 - 05:33 PM)

So, it's exactly like Lost Light, then.

@  Bass X0 : (16 September 2020 - 01:52 PM)

What if Lost Light was stripped bare of its charm and humor? Galaxies #10 is the answer.

@  ▲ndrusi : (16 September 2020 - 01:49 PM)

I didn't mean "*exactly* 15 years ago and no other time."

@  NotVeryKnightly : (16 September 2020 - 12:27 AM)

I mean, the comment was about a linewide gimmick of 15 years ago, not a gimmick only present in a minority of toys from that year.

@  Maximus Ambus : (16 September 2020 - 12:14 AM)

I'd like a western take on the UT for it's twentieth, like a annual CG or anime movie on Netflix that is a condensed retelling similar to the film Macross/Robotech: Do You Remember Love.

@  Maximus Ambus : (16 September 2020 - 12:11 AM)

Giant Planet had them, Energon had a few. I've been disappointed in Siege for not having something for the Micromasters, Earthrise has with the base bots but they've been wasted here.

@  NotVeryKnightly : (15 September 2020 - 10:47 PM)

Wasn't 15 years ago Cyber Keys rather than Minicons?

@  Steevy Maximus : (15 September 2020 - 09:38 PM)

By and large, even the worst Minicons have some unique engineering or design elements. The nostalgia factor aside, Micromasters got pretty samey after you got several, especially the "proper" 89 series.

@  unluckiness : (15 September 2020 - 07:13 PM)

There's certainly a load of crummy ones to sift through

@  TheMightyMol... : (15 September 2020 - 05:29 PM)

Or both. There's some overlap.

@  wonko the sane? : (15 September 2020 - 03:19 PM)

People either hated minicons or became completely addicted to them.

@  ▲ndrusi : (15 September 2020 - 03:17 PM)

A properly-planned theme, or as people called it 15 years ago, a stupid linewide baby toy gimmick that ruins the toys.

@  SHIELD Agent 47 : (15 September 2020 - 01:39 PM)

Look on the bright side: at least Kingdom has a properly-planned theme to its name unlike Power of the Primes being a hilariously transparent junk drawer for the PWT, and with letdown Prime toys to boot.

@  -LittleAutob... : (15 September 2020 - 01:33 PM)

Oh that makes sense-

@  wonko the sane? : (15 September 2020 - 01:32 PM)

To renew their copyrights on all their names, characters and series.

@  -LittleAutob... : (15 September 2020 - 01:32 PM)

Strange.

@  Maximus Ambus : (15 September 2020 - 01:08 PM)

War for Cybertron trilogy is a strange thing, from pre Earth to Earth to Beast Wars.
What was their plan again?

@  Bass X0 : (15 September 2020 - 12:40 PM)

Fall! FALL!! I would have waited an eternity for this; it’s Autumn, Prime...

@  wonko the sane? : (13 September 2020 - 01:41 PM)

You can't force other people to sell; ao despite abundance the prices are high. I'm just a small scale hobbyist, I'm not looking to cash in just help other folks with their... uh, passion.

@  Rycochet : (13 September 2020 - 01:28 PM)

It's like diamonds, artificial rarity boosting the price,

@  wonko the sane? : (13 September 2020 - 01:25 PM)

I call bull carp on that. There's a HUGE secondary market, and gently used pieces go for tens of thousands.

@  Rycochet : (13 September 2020 - 01:24 PM)

They lose a lot of their value when not mint in sealed body.

@  wonko the sane? : (13 September 2020 - 01:04 PM)

I could probably stand to part with 2 or 3 of them. I've been collecting them for years anyway.

@  wonko the sane? : (13 September 2020 - 11:37 AM)

I threw a bunch of lawn and garden tools up on kijiji, today someone messaged me and said they wanted them all. They haven't even tried to haggle or anything. I suspect I'm about to be robbed or otherwise ripped off.

So, I got the Mega Man Legacy Collection. While it's fun playing through the old levels, the REAL fun part is that you can fight the bosses on their own. I can finally say I've beaten Quick Man... Even though I still can't get through his level.

 

Capcom really should have put 9 and 10 in there, though, just so we can have all the 8-bit games in the series.

Okay, so since this... I'm not going to say week, since I don't know how long I want to keep it going, but this... Whatever's topic is Mega Man. I think I'm gonna start with my top twelve Robot Masters. Why top twelve? Because I like to go TWO steps beyond. Aaaaanyways...

 

12. Air Man

fWznkM9.png

Ah, Air Man. For some reason, I can't beat this guy... At least not with Leaf Shield. He's actually easier to beat with the Buster. Seriously. Anyway, part of the reason I like him is the "Airman ga Taosenai" song. Seriously.

 

11. Sheep Man

nQJYZgs.png

Yes, Sheep Man made this list. No, I was not drunk while I made this list. Anyway, Sheep Man is goofy as hell, and that's why I like him. The weapon you get from him is pretty terrible, but considering the guy is a walking reference to Phillip K. Dick, I can forgive that.

 

10. Tengu Man

CrlYHvN.png

Mega Man 8 was... Okay. It wasn't really as good as the rest of the classic series, the voice acting was terrible and the phrase "Jump! Jump! Jump! Slide! Slide! Slide!" is burned into my mind, but whatever. Tengu Man is just plain cool. His design is pretty badass, and he has a cool hat. Hell, this guy is SO cool, he was in TWO games. TWO.

 

9. Enker

kZBEcAR.jpg

Ah, the first Mega Man Killer. The Mega Man Killers are awesome, and I flipped the hell out when they were released as DLC for Mega Man 10. We finally got to see their sprites in color, which was a reason to rejoice. Anyway, Enker's got a strong "Japanese spirit" even though he looks more like a western knight. Go fig.

 

8. Knight Man

cYwBWUm.png

Speaking of knights, here's Knight Man. Yeah, he's kind of laughably easy if you have Yamato Man's weapon, but he has a cool design. He's apparently defeated more than a thousand other robots in duels. I actually like ALL the designs from 6, but Knight Man's my favorite for some reason.

 

7. Quick Man

PgnRcs2.jpg

Ah, Quick Man. I've never been able to beat your level, but I have been able to beat YOU because of the Mega Man Legacy Collection's boss database. He's a tough boss to beat, especially since his "weakness" only takes off half of his health and you're forced to use the other weapons. Hell, the otherwise OP Metal Blade does NOTHING to him. At all.

 

6. Skull Man

onDqyuP.png

All right, with THAT out of the way, Skull Man is pretty cool. He's a decently tough fight, and he makes better use of his weapon than you ever could. Seriously, Dive Man will kick your ass even IF you use Skull Man's weapon.

 

5. Tornado Man

gYgTTcI.jpg

I really, really, REALLY like the Mega Man 9 Robot Masters. It's the game that got me back into the series, and it's still my personal favorite entry in the entire franchise. Tornado Man is basically a wind-themed Quick Man design was. You know, there's an unusually high amount of wind-themed Robot Masters on this list.

 

4. Shadow Man

4OGvUSg.png

I'll get this off my chest: when it comes to pirates vs. ninjas, I usually go with pirates. I make an exception for Mega Man, because Shadow Man is awesome. No one knows where the hell he came from - Dr. Wily just found him and reprogrammed him. That's all we know.

 

3. Ballade

BUq1oth.jpg

Yep, you knew that another Mega Man Killer would be on this list. He's basically a proto-Bass - a robot created solely for the purpose of being Mega Man's arch-rival. I also like how his "super mode" is basically him putting on shades. His heroic sacrifice is just a bonus.

 

2. Punk

Xn21IMi.jpg

And finishing up the Mega Man Killers, we have Punk. He's just plain badass. The dude can roll up into a buzzsaw! However, even he can't top...

 

1. Galaxy Man

Yw5odDs.jpg

Galaxy Man is just plain fun. He's got a cool, genuinely robotic-looking design, Astro Man-esque LED lights for a face, and he turns into a frickin' flying saucer. Plus, he somehow changes colors while you fight him. Trippy.

Mega Man 9 is one of the only classic Mega Man games I'm actually good at level-wise, really. Jewel Man's level is still a bitch, though.

I think the Mega Man X series is slightly easier because the dash helps you jump further than Mega Man's pathetic jumps in the classic series.

Speaking of Mega Man 9, which has my favorite batch of Robot Masters, here's Hitoshi Ariga's takes on six of them!

6h7S9Dr.jpg

Zgmliza.jpg

Sadly, there are no scans of Magma Man or Galaxy Man's page... Yet.

 

Some of the nice touches I noticed are that:

 

1. Jewel Man's fingertips have been turned into jeweler's drills

2. Splash Woman's helmet has been given a few notches to make it look like a bob haircut and her tail looks more realistic

3. Concrete Man's shoulders rotate like a cement truck's drum and his feet are basically concrete blocks (which is hilarious)

4. Hornet Man's Hornet Chasers have compound eyes, his mouthplate looks like closed insect mandibles and his legs have gained rocket boosters so he can fly

5. Plug Man's plug arm has changed into a different kind of plug adapter

6. Tornado Man's leg-fins can rotate upwards so it looks more "natural" when he spins his legs around for his tornado flight and his head-fins can adjust for aerodynamics.

 

Ariga is awesome.
