@  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.

For those of us who are not current members and have not done a TFSS previously, how much do they charge for S&H?  Is it charged up front or doled out as they go?

 

Mine was $47.70 for Priority 2-day, the cheaper option of the two.

 

And of course there's the $5 online processing fee.

I think Counterpunch should come with a voice box G2 type deal where he screams "Noooooooooo!" like Vader.

 I chose the USPS option rather than FedEx. For me, shipping came out to about $8 and change per figure (not counting #7). The first payment (if in installments) is charged up front (as, obviously, is it if you're paying all at once), while the other two payments are later. Shipping is evenly divided among all payments, so each payment should be identical to the other two (of three total).

Well the unfortunate part is that we'd then feel cheated that we're not getting the Punch figure, even though it would mean paying a premium price for more-or-less the same exact toy in the same exact colors. And because this is the end of Fun Pub's offerings, it also means we'd have to miss out on something else, probably Fractyl or Lifeline. I like them way too much to want Punch to take either one's place.

That's all very true, but people were already wanting a CW Punch when this figure was announced, and I'm sure this bio won't appease all of them. At the end of the day, it just comes down to the fact that Hasbro made a Counterpunch head, and didn't make a Punch for some reason. (I'm assuming they didn't, otherwise FunPub wouldn't have just left it alone.)

Pretty much. I think the idea behind Counterpunch's bio was "How to make this a compelling thing in its own right?" It was never going to satisfy as a replacement for a true Punch/Counterpunch, but of all the possible things they could have done with the character as a singular entity, I think this was a pretty good approach.

 

But, like, that's just my opinion, man.

Signed on for the whole thing, installment-style with FedEx. Could've paid all at once, but that would've made the next 2-3 weeks kinda shaky. And since the Post Office carriers will only leave packages when someone's in the apartment office to receive them and FedEx couriers will drop them at my door if I'm not home, that's the obvious choice for me.

 

Oh my GOD am I bouncing with joy at the Pretender Megatron. And it's going to be over a year until I get it. ;_;

 

EDIT: ALso, it's good that we're getting ~three~ new female characters in here, and also cool that Spacewarp is colored like SG Astrotrain.

Since FunPub HAS to ship everything out by December 31st (a mere 8 months away), I'm not sure how you're going to have to wait over a year....

Not exactly. Spacewarp is a version of the Universe 2003/Unicron Trilogy character, dimension jumped to G1. And Lifeline is implicitly a version of one of the many Paradron Medics in the original cartoon.

"Displaced explorer" certainly could mean she's crossed dimensions, but I don't see anything explicit about her having been downsized, or that she's from Universe/UT.
