In my Marvel comic canon the second wave of special teams were handpicked active robots whose experience would theoretically make more stable combiners, the Combaticons came from Cybertron, the Protectobots were imprinted from crystals explaining both Onslauhghts ancestry and First Aid's experience.

@  Cyoti : (18 June 2021 - 03:32 PM)

Even with B5, it didn't follow its original 5-year plan. Summaries from the supplementary materials for the scriptbooks demonstrates that was originally planned was very different from the actual product. Sinclair's actor's departure seemingly changed the show to the point that the stuff with the Vorlons/Shadows, the Minbari and the ending were all changed. Mapping out a show years in advance is difficult because of changing bts stuff like writers/actors leaving the show or suddenly having to retool because of ratings/execs. No plan survives intact especially in a chaotic environment of television production.

@  Rycochet : (18 June 2021 - 11:27 AM)

To be like Babylon 5, you need to cram a 2 season story arc into one because you fear being cancelled, then get further seasons you have no more material for. You also need a spinoff which the network heads don't want and do everything in their power to kill it while it's on air.

@  wonko the sane? : (18 June 2021 - 10:33 AM)

The required effort is probably why we don't have babylon 6; TNG.

@  Dekafox : (18 June 2021 - 10:23 AM)

Everyone wants to be like Babylon 5 but no one wants to put in the effort

@  Nevermore : (18 June 2021 - 09:36 AM)

And then, after five years of hosting their own official podcast where they would answer fan questions and always encouraged their audience to pay attention to the mysteries, after the show had ended, they claimed the show was never really about the mysteries, it was all about the characters.

@  Nevermore : (18 June 2021 - 09:34 AM)

What really bugs me with "Lost" is that the producers had willfully negotiated a set end date with the network halfway through season 3 (the show ended with season 6, as planned) specifically so they could plan out the plot for the remainder of the show. Then... the plot wasn't resolved properly.

@  tigerhawk : (18 June 2021 - 04:17 AM)

By then I had lost interest in arc TV shows, I followed a few and got the impression they were just making them up as they went along. Seemed to be a trend starting with new Galactica and Lost though in actuality began with The X Files and has become a trope called 'The Chris Carter Effect'.

@  Nevermore : (18 June 2021 - 02:12 AM)

I think it was season 3 part 1 specifically, since they had two separate plot "arcs" for season 3.

@  Nevermore : (18 June 2021 - 02:11 AM)

They threw everything in there, with no clear story structure, no clear stakes, and characters flip-flopping wherever the episode's writer needed them to go for their half-baked plot.

@  Nevermore : (18 June 2021 - 02:10 AM)

Season 3 was the worst, with a terrible meandering random events plot.

@  tigerhawk : (17 June 2021 - 11:59 PM)

'save the cheerleader' then in season 3 he tears her skull open, scans her power and she simply heals. They didn't think any of it through.

Weirdwolf has a new more cartoon accurate head like Skull & Hardhead.

 

The mystery LG-30 listing ended up being Weirdwolf.

Yeah that's kind of weird because you can make out Wheelie's, Rewind's, and Weirdwolf's decos at least.

 

Shows that GoShooter is colored like the animation with the blue on the sides of his head and the white helmet.

 

Nightbeat ends up being painted differently though, as his face is definitely lighter than the surrounding helmet.  So no orange face with a yellow surrounding area for sure.

Are we sure they're not just the Hasbro versions, and that's why they're greyscale?

 

Also, Takara splitting out the Titan Master vehicles continues to be baffling. Like, that one is just 100% Apeface's jet and gorilla modes. Why would you separate it from Apeface? Will it be decoed to match Weirdwolf too?

I'd guess they're split up because of the pricepoints Takara wants to hit. They don't want to do the "Titanmaster" pricepoint(too small?). Adding a Titanmaster figure to the Legends is good for the play pattern, but they don't want to bump up that pricepoint too much by adding the figure and the accessory(A legend+a Titanmaster figure/accessory would basically bump it all the way up to deluxe).

 

So Legends get an added head figure and then there are these left over accessory toolings and what to do with them? Throw them in with some of the deluxes.

 

I'm curious about what Mindwipe will come with and is there going to be a green Horri-Bull head somewhere?

There's still Siren's bathtub hovercar, Nightbeat's jet, and Brawn's caterpillar Jeep left to use for Takara.

 

It just seems to me like they'd be better off including the Titan Masters with the Deluxes too. I mean, then you've got a figure with a extra weapon and an alternate head, which can also combine with or ride each other. As it is, Wheelie's the only one of the Legends that has a properly decent way of interacting with the Titan Master. Shockwave doesn't have any way of interacting with his, short of awkwardly cramming it into a gap in the alt mode!

I know their are options for what to include with Mindwipe, I mean I'm curious about which specific option it will be. Notably because they've used the 2 "beast" accessories with the "beast" headmasters but there's not a third "beast" option that we know of yet.

 

If that's your view of the TM figures, that's your view, but I hope you can see the logic of the other view. Wheelie does have a great way of interacting, so it's good to include one with him. Include 1 with him, and the others, whatever level of interaction they have, probably should have 1 as well for uniformity of the pricepoint. The other TR original Legends molds do have foot pegs for the TM figures so there is some official interaction there too.

No, we don't all know everything but we should spread and share that what we do know.

If I'm consistently misspelling a word, I would want and expect people to correct me as should I imagine all decent people who know the value of good literacy.

Its just arrogant laziness to know you're spelling a word incorrectly and not correct yourself or ignore the advice when people do tell you how to spell a word correctly.

How's he being released? I guess I've missed that. Hardhead's mini-tank must use green paint or they're splitting the casting that while they apparently aren't for Cancer & Skullcruncher's "bird-gun".

Ok, ya, I presume they'll eventually make a regular colored one as well, but then there's also the question of a green-colored one that might be produced while making Hardhead's little tank.

Kind of like a lot of these things TakaraTomy tends to produce where we don't see the remainder of the tooling elsewhere.

Yes, that's a possibility, just wondering if they don't do that could it end up somewhere, a store promo or whatever. If something is *known* that'd be cool to hear, but I'm sure it's not at this point.

I was referring to a hypothetical Takara version of Titans Return Apeface. JG1 Apeface has a smaller stage, Spasma, as do all the Headmasters Headmasters.

Wait, Bullhorn wasn't with the other Wave 1 Titan Master head molds that got partnered up with Legends class figures in the previous TF: Legends catalog news? Was it really just Nightbeat, Goshooter, and Cancer?
