Also, strike has been extended. So no working for 50 minutes. Would have been fun, though.

@  Nevermore : (11 December 2018 - 08:21 PM)

I said numerous times already that I work at that big American corporation that begins with "A".

@  NotVeryKnightly : (11 December 2018 - 02:05 PM)

Who would be the heroes in this situation?

@  Waspinator : (11 December 2018 - 02:03 PM)

When I die, I want my body to be part of a puzzle solution. Like, have my skeleton pointing at the clue the heroes are supposed to find.

@  Rodimus Supreme : (11 December 2018 - 12:38 PM)

Can you say where you work at? Or is that private?

@  Nevermore : (10 December 2018 - 02:49 PM)

It's completely pointless... whch is exactly the point. Hundreds of workers showing up 50 minutes before their shift is over.

@  Nevermore : (10 December 2018 - 02:49 PM)

We're on strike until midnight tomorrow (Tuesday->Wednesday). Which means I will clock in at midnight and work until my shift is over... 50 minutes later.

@  Nevermore : (10 December 2018 - 02:48 PM)

Hahaha, awesome.

@  Cybersnark : (09 December 2018 - 09:36 PM)

But The Pillows prefer to kill you with Poison Rock'N'Roll

@  Rodimus Supreme : (09 December 2018 - 10:23 AM)

Pillows can kill you softly.

@  Pennpenn : (09 December 2018 - 07:26 AM)

@  NotVeryKnightly : (09 December 2018 - 05:34 AM)

But is anything killing you softly?

@  Pennpenn : (09 December 2018 - 03:03 AM)

Oh don't be ridiculous. Some things are killing us quickly!

@  Rodimus Supreme : (08 December 2018 - 10:46 PM)

Isn't everything just killing us all slowly?...

@  wonko the sane? : (08 December 2018 - 09:23 PM)

Except the planet of junk actually fosters life, as opposed to the garbage patch which is just killing us all slowly.

@  RichardT1977 : (08 December 2018 - 11:11 AM)

I realized the other day that the Planet of Junk/Junkion is the interstellar counterpart to the Great Pacific Garbage Patch.

@  Waspinator : (07 December 2018 - 11:50 PM)

The Wheel of Time turns, and Ages come and pass, leaving memories that become legend. Legend fades to myth, and even myth is long forgotten when the Age that gave it birth comes again. In one Age, called the Third Age by some, an Age yet to come, an Age long past, a wind rose in the Mountains of Mist. The wind was not the beginning. There are neither beginnings nor endings to the turning of the Wheel of Time. But it was a beginning.

@  PlutoniumBoss : (07 December 2018 - 10:33 PM)

Always hopeful yet discontent, he knows changes aren't permanent, but change is!

@  Pennpenn : (07 December 2018 - 07:16 PM)

Nonsense. Everything changes, the cycle is an illusion.

@  Waspinator : (07 December 2018 - 07:03 PM)

Turning, turning, turning through the years. Minutes into hours, and the hours into years. Nothing changes, nothing ever can. Round about the roundabout. Round and round and back where you began!

@  Pennpenn : (07 December 2018 - 06:56 PM)

The change was you got something off your wishlist. Be happy about that if nothing else!

@  wonko the sane? : (07 December 2018 - 02:09 PM)

I finally got something off my steam wishlist! but managed to add another title immediately: so there was no change. Dang it.

@  Dekafox : (07 December 2018 - 01:46 PM)

They're the thieves everyone is talking about though!

@  Tm_Silverclaw : (07 December 2018 - 11:06 AM)

Wrong Phantom thieves!

@  Dekafox : (07 December 2018 - 11:04 AM)

I thought they were just trying to take the Lupin Collection pieces

@  MEDdMI : (07 December 2018 - 09:25 AM)

The red plastic holding it together kinda worries me. It's the gummi kind of clear plasstic andmoving it feels uncpomfortably close to tearing.

@  Shrug : (06 December 2018 - 08:17 AM)

Yeah, that happened to mine a few weeks ago. Common problem.

@  Pennpenn : (06 December 2018 - 08:05 AM)

Oh for cryin' out loud, the yellow part on the back hinge of my TR Weirdwolf broke. Bleh. At least the red is still there I guess.

@  unluckiness : (06 December 2018 - 04:59 AM)

Man, I still haven't gotten past Rock Tunnel.

@  Tm_Silverclaw : (06 December 2018 - 03:28 AM)

You know nothing.. NOTHING! Eevee is our lord and savior! He will give us the cuteness we need! ;) No seriously.. Both Pika and Eevee in the games are way OP and Eevee can learn elemental moves to replace evolving.

@  TheMightyMol... : (06 December 2018 - 03:22 AM)

It's cute, what other point does it need?

@  Pennpenn : (06 December 2018 - 03:17 AM)

I can get Pikachu not evolving, the species has had decades of not evolving. But Eevee without evolution seems... pointless?

@  Tm_Silverclaw : (06 December 2018 - 03:15 AM)

Neither can Pikachu... And you don't need Eevee to evolve!

@  TheMightyMol... : (06 December 2018 - 03:15 AM)

Neither of them can evolve as starters.

@  Pennpenn : (06 December 2018 - 02:30 AM)

Also damn it my mouse wheel broke. What a pisser.

@  Pennpenn : (06 December 2018 - 02:30 AM)

It can't evolve.

As requested, a thread for discussion of the non-Transformers stuff in the IDW Hasbro shared universe. That is:

- G.I. Joe
- Micronauts
- Action Man
- Rom
- M.A.S.K.
- Jem and the Holograms (apparently)

So, Micronauts, huh? Today's issue wasn't quite on the level of issue #3 (that last page, whoof), but it was still pretty good, IMO.
Meanwhile, in Action Man, Ian proves himself to be a bit of a knob.
 

Why DIDN'T Robo-Joe appear in Joe vs TF, huh? I mean all joking aside he was literally the embodiment of that book's themes!


Maybe he'll be in the annual.

Just read Rom. Can you imagine if Revolution hadn't been announced, and that last page was our first sign of it?
I appreciated Rom's hammy, comic-booky dialogue - it was silly and expositiony, but I like the idea that that's just how he talks all the time.
Nothing's really grabbed me so far, but maybe it'll be like Micronauts, where the second issue is a step up.

Also, on the subject of Robo-Joe: he was clearly too subtle a character for Scioli to make use of!

It occurs to me that the Jem comic is technically fair game in here since I think it got mentioned that's in-continuity too at the SDCC panel?

I can't find where this was said, but I thought they made it sound somewhere like a Jem exists in this continuity, but not necessarily the one with her own comic going right now. I'm not sure.

I think the idea is thus: 

 

From the perspective of the Revolution books, Jem exists. 

 

From Jem's perspective, none of the Revolution stuff exists. 

 

More or less.

Basically it's "We love JEM and she IS Hasbro so technically she's part of the shared universe and the other books will do little nods to her, BUT she's got her own great, popular, fun thing going that all our silly boy action-sci-fi crossover junk would do nothing but get in the way of and screw up, so her own book is gonna 100% ignore the others."

I don't know if you meant that seriously or not, but 2000 AD pulled off two Judge Dredd crossovers without telling anyone in the last four years so IDW could certainly have at least done the same thing with the Hasbroverse. That would've been a laugh. There's seeing a press release that all these characters will be crossing over and then there's if #50 had the President announce Duke as her troubleshooter instead of Spike and we hadn't known until turning that page.

I think he means in the main comic.

 

In any case, what about Infestation? Are we to take it that it was a seperate G.I. Joe verse now? was it ever referred to in any of the ones we know are supposed to exist now in the IDW universe?

Well, since we know the entirety of IDW's 'present day' Joe stories were set after Costa's run, we know the two Infestation tie-ins took place at different times, so just say two different incursions happened at different points. The wonky timeline thing wouldn't even be a retcon, the frozen mass of zombies Galvatron found in space was said to be there for centuries before he stumbled upon it.

Britt just committed an apocalyptic faux pas by invading the same universe with zombies twice.

 

Otherwise, I guess it was just an issue of tone - IIRC, the 80's Joe comic authors indicated at several points that they weren't too keen on being made to cross their comics over with the Transformers ones, and IDW Joe is even more "realistic" than they were.
