@  Gryllid : (21 February 2018 - 08:57 AM)

But like, if we say "G1 Soundwave", are the cartoon, comic, and toy bio really all the same character in a way that Aligned Soundwave isn't?

@  Gryllid : (21 February 2018 - 08:57 AM)

I'm not even sure how we'd tell the difference between "G1 characters in a new continuity" and "new characters who look like the G1 characters". Maybe it's sort of a philosophical thing.

@  Nevermore : (21 February 2018 - 04:54 AM)

If you ask Hasbro, Cyberverse is about the Transformers characters.

@  Tm_Silverclaw : (20 February 2018 - 10:09 PM)

We don't really know yet. It could be an amalgamation of things.

@  RichardT1977 : (20 February 2018 - 09:49 PM)

Or is Cyberverse a continuation of Prime/RiD?

@  Plokatron : (20 February 2018 - 07:49 PM)

@RichardT1977 Hahahaha I love this place. My references are gotten here as Scott said "I have found my clan." Yes I did indeed bring the Purple Morphilogical Being into this. Sheesh I just realized he shares the color as a Con!

@  RichardT1977 : (20 February 2018 - 05:04 PM)

@Plokatron did you just drag Ivan Ooze into this?

@  Plokatron : (20 February 2018 - 04:33 PM)

@RichardT1977 Touch me again and you'll be chicken wings in the morning. All I have to say about that. :D

@  Steevy Maximus : (20 February 2018 - 04:17 PM)

It's that one!

@  Bass X0 : (20 February 2018 - 04:01 PM)

Is Cyberverse the original G1 characters in a new continuity or completely new characters in a completely new continuity who happen to look similar to G1 characters but aren't them?

@  RichardT1977 : (20 February 2018 - 02:26 PM)

"Mr. Meeseeks, I want you to kill SCP-682--WITHOUT harming any humans."

@  RichardT1977 : (20 February 2018 - 02:25 PM)

If you're familiar with the relevant works, I've come up with one of the cruelest acts one could ever conceive:

@  Plokatron : (20 February 2018 - 12:05 PM)

As I said sorry. Won't happen again.

@  2018 : (20 February 2018 - 06:03 AM)

Yeah this isn't the place for your big blocks of texts, make a thread?

@  NotVeryKnightly : (20 February 2018 - 04:54 AM)

They're worse than mutiposts in threads due to the lack of paragraph breaks.

@  Plokatron : (20 February 2018 - 02:33 AM)

Side note in a way it was a good thing I never had the first Millennium Falcon seeing as no matter what it would eventually break. Curse you GPS. Also forgive me I do hope multiposts in shout aren't as frowned on as double posts in threads. If they are this is my vow I'll not let it happen again from my end.

@  Plokatron : (20 February 2018 - 02:31 AM)

By the way getting ready to make my first Preorder ever with BBTS for the Millennium Falcon Transformer in honor of my mother who tried to get me the first one but they sold out before she could. Plus other things happed so I'm helping her keep a promise to me. Also getting Masterpiece Cy-Kill and a model of Thunderbird 2. So glad Preorders don't charge you full till delivery.

@  Plokatron : (20 February 2018 - 02:26 AM)

Well yes like I said Nintendo don't like their IPs that are available to purchase to be up for free. Games like the translation of "For the Frog The Bell Tolls" remain since it's never been localized it's more a matter of hurting sales for them than anything and I seriously doubt they care about sprite comics. Much like Hasbro won't with my comic since 99% is scratch made by me. Fact is I am helping them more than hurting with this. Free advertisement and who knows maybe they will like my stuff enough to ask me to work with them on a game one day like the Longhaul design for RoTF. That was a lucky dude and no mistake.

@  2018 : (19 February 2018 - 10:40 PM)

Nintendo did force a bunch of rom sites to take down downloads for their games recently, though.

@  Plokatron : (19 February 2018 - 08:51 PM)

There is protective and then there is Nerdrage. I may be protective of my I.P.s that I'm creating but sheesh if someone wants to create fanfics well I'm not going to sue em. XD

@  Tm_Silverclaw : (19 February 2018 - 03:41 PM)

Yeah. I mean if they really cared about romhacks.. Well those would be gone in a minute. No one is as bad as Lucas was before disney bought star wars.. They where on a rampage.

@  Plokatron : (19 February 2018 - 02:29 PM)

@Tm_Silverclaw Indeed and I was more refering to AM2R and the fact that music is flagged a lot on Youtube. Nintendo aren't pricks just very very protective. Plus AM2R was removed due to them already doing exactly what it did.

@  Tm_Silverclaw : (19 February 2018 - 12:29 PM)

Everyone things that was the reason for Project M, but I think it makes more sense that they stopped because they where making their own game.

 

Project M existed for a LONG time.

@  SHIELD Agent 47 : (19 February 2018 - 12:01 PM)

Ha, like Project M?

@  Tm_Silverclaw : (19 February 2018 - 11:03 AM)

@Plokatron, Nintendo only really cares when you make games that is in*or going to be in direct competition of this games* Like metroid AM2R. Or talk about it to much that they Carnot argue not knowing about it. Remember for the longest time Hasbro really didn't give two hugs about 3rd parties making an repugnas or anything until they got asked so often they could no longer claim plausible deniability. Again just like the wow servers.

@  siccoyote : (18 February 2018 - 10:20 PM)

I'd like Hasbro to send me CADs so I can modify them and print out improved versions like Black Mamba & Weijang

@  Plokatron : (18 February 2018 - 06:37 PM)

@Tm_Silverclaw Indeed Nintendo being one of the worst for this. But as you say Hasbro is quite connected to it's fanbase and I am not getting money for this and I have no intention on harming them. This is no parody this is proper writing and a personal challenge to my artistic talents.

@  Tm_Silverclaw : (18 February 2018 - 06:11 PM)

Some companies would indeed send a "Cease and Desist" order.. But Hasbro usually seems cool as long as you don't get money or damage the brand.

@  Plokatron : (18 February 2018 - 05:35 PM)

@NotVeryKnightly Ah my mistake. I have never heard that use of it. I have always hear it said aloud as CAD like well the word Cad as in a slaghead. :D

@  NotVeryKnightly : (18 February 2018 - 05:31 PM)

I only ever see CAD as an abbreviation for computer-aided design.

@  Plokatron : (18 February 2018 - 05:29 PM)

@NotVeryKnightly That is what the "A" stands for. A Ampersand and the word and are both the same thing right? ;) But yes a C&D/CAD is what I mean.

@  NotVeryKnightly : (18 February 2018 - 05:27 PM)

You mean "C&D" right

@  Plokatron : (18 February 2018 - 05:25 PM)

@NotVeryKnightly @Patchouli Knowledge Exactly my point. I ask for help on learning methodology so I can continue my Transformers: Roll Out comic project and this guy posts this thing that basically calls me a moron for making a non-profit sprite comic saying it is exactly the opposite of what the company would want. Unless they send me a CAD I'm not buying that Slag!

@  Patchouli Kn... : (18 February 2018 - 05:20 PM)

And also just plain stupid

@  NotVeryKnightly : (18 February 2018 - 05:17 PM)

It would be ridiculously contradictory to sell things but not want people to talk about them on the internet.

@  Plokatron : (18 February 2018 - 05:14 PM)

Question if a company didn't want a community based around it's product such as Hasbro not wanting fans to create new ideas for Transformers would we even have said franchises?

@  TM2-Megatron : (18 February 2018 - 04:27 PM)

I didn't find that scene sad, as I didn't really care at all about the character who'd died. I like the song, though, and the scene was nice to look at.

@  Paladin : (18 February 2018 - 03:12 PM)

it only feels that long if you buy the Blu-Ray.

@  Tm_Silverclaw : (18 February 2018 - 03:06 PM)

I think so

@  Nevermore : (18 February 2018 - 03:03 PM)

Was the Watchmen movie really ten years ago?

@  Tm_Silverclaw : (18 February 2018 - 03:03 PM)

I am happy now.

@  Spacewarp : (18 February 2018 - 01:06 PM)

It's supposed to be a sad serious moment, but all I can think of is MLG GTA 5 or whatever.

@  Spacewarp : (18 February 2018 - 01:06 PM)

I saw a bit of that 2008 Watchman movie the other day, and the part where they play The Sound Of Silence I burst out laughing.

@  NotVeryKnightly : (18 February 2018 - 11:27 AM)

There's still the camera button on the main Google Images page, at least.

@  CORVUS : (18 February 2018 - 11:22 AM)

Yeah, Nevermore, I'm well aware of that option. But its not foolproof, AND, correct me if I'm wrong, the option to find the same image in different sizes seems to have vanished as well.

@  Noeru : (18 February 2018 - 11:13 AM)

Posted a wave 2 find in the discord. Can someone tell me if I blocked all the important stuff on the reciept?

@  MEDdMI : (18 February 2018 - 09:18 AM)

it's a few extra steps, not a big deal for me. Reading the article Corvus posted, I get what the concern is.

@  NotVeryKnightly : (18 February 2018 - 09:17 AM)

Actually, upon testing, I sometimes get to the original image instead of a thumbnail without actually visiting the page but I'm not 100% sure how it works.

@  NotVeryKnightly : (18 February 2018 - 09:15 AM)

Unless you mean visiting the webpage, finding the image there, and only then right-clicking.

@  NotVeryKnightly : (18 February 2018 - 09:13 AM)

That doesn't get you the original image.

The artwork is decent but why doesn't Takara treat Transformers fiction seriously? Whats with the cartoony Rattrap and Optimus Primal?

It's a gag manga.

 

Takara produces plenty of serious fiction elsewhere.

Just calling them as I see them. If something is written to be deep and intelligent I will praise it for being deep and intelligent. When something is dumb and inappropriate, I'll criticise it for being dumb and inappropriate.

Not having cutesy Rattrap, Optimus Primal and Rhinox in the story would have been a strong start.

She likes to sing karaoke with him.

My brain insists that that should be pronounced "Tank Takei" despite the consonants not matching up.
