Is that why I found a Yamask in the cereal box?

@  Paladin : (29 May 2017 - 06:29 PM)

taste may vary from person to person.

@  Telly : (29 May 2017 - 06:03 PM)

soylent green toast crunch yummy yummy!

@  D Immortalis : (29 May 2017 - 05:47 PM)

since were pretty sure he ate the other bakers, i figure kids love it because it tastes like people...PEOPLE!

@  TheMightyMol... : (29 May 2017 - 04:07 PM)

But have you sighted why kids love the sweet taste of Cinnamon Toast Crunchâ„¢?

@  RichardT1977 : (29 May 2017 - 03:14 PM)

BTW: added a sighting to my recent TR Deluxe Wave 4 post (edited instead of double-posted).

Back in my day, I called them "Mini-Spies".

@  Whirl Maximus : (28 May 2017 - 02:06 PM)

Think about the implications of it though, robots in disguise themselves infiltrated and paranoid by the recent shifts in the status quo.

@  unluckiness : (28 May 2017 - 07:47 AM)

I'm kinda glad. A couple tie-in stories aside, Secret Invasion was a mess.

@  Steevy Maximus : (28 May 2017 - 07:23 AM)

Almost makes you wonder if some of the aborted Micronauts relaunch concept didn't slip in...

@  Whirl Maximus : (28 May 2017 - 07:20 AM)

Titan Masters could quite easily have been Transformers: Secret invasion, the return of the Mini-cons/Stentarians but noooooo, it had to be whatever the pit it is.

Even if it's just 4 bucks, people shouldn't be patronizing obvious scams.

@  TheMightyMol... : (27 May 2017 - 05:37 PM)

What's the shipping price?

@  Steevy Maximus : (27 May 2017 - 05:18 PM)

Yeah, but it's cheaper than all the Hong Kong sellers running at $65+

@  2017 : (27 May 2017 - 05:07 PM)

It sounds like a scam.

@  Steevy Maximus : (27 May 2017 - 04:32 PM)

Grax is only invisible when no one is looking at them. No idea what's wrong with your Xort.

@  Whirl Maximus : (27 May 2017 - 04:16 AM)

Titan Masters is filled with false advertising, Grax doesn't make any figure invisible and Xort doesn't do anything with gravity. Maybe they'll be in the Transformer toys of tomorrow which will be actual robots with AI.

@  Echowarrior : (26 May 2017 - 09:16 PM)

Thor was a great guy. Same as most of the Asgard. Loki was a jerk, though.

@  wonko the sane? : (26 May 2017 - 07:21 PM)

I think thor was just too smart to NOT call us stupid next to him.

@  Pennpenn : (26 May 2017 - 07:18 PM)

Six of one, half a dozen of the other?

@  wonko the sane? : (26 May 2017 - 07:17 PM)

I always interpreted that scene to mean that asgardians weren't capable of breaking down problems in the same way as humans.

@  Pennpenn : (26 May 2017 - 06:58 AM)

I mean, SG1 was a good show on balance. One of my favourite things was Thor admitting he found humans good to keep around because they so often came up with stupid ideas that nevertheless worked out.

@  Whirl Maximus : (26 May 2017 - 05:59 AM)

Those episodes were 1969 and 2010.

@  Whirl Maximus : (26 May 2017 - 05:59 AM)

Stargate sg1 was loosely based on the movie, it thrived on continuity it was impressive how old situations and solutions would come back in unexpected ways. Continuum had it's villain use the characters own solution in two previous episodes against them.

@  Pennpenn : (26 May 2017 - 05:39 AM)

And yeah, name is based on a part of my surname. Can't remember why I picked it. Lost to memories of the primordial early 2000s.

@  Pennpenn : (26 May 2017 - 05:37 AM)

Like how Abydos in the movie is in another galaxy on the far side of the universe, but Abydos in SG1 is the closest world to Earth (and that was the only reason the gate could still get there) and even getting to other galaxies was impossible with the normal gates.

@  Pennpenn : (26 May 2017 - 05:35 AM)

I was very tired when I said that, but what I meant was a lot of stuff that is in the original Stargate movie is contradicted a lot in Stargate SG1.

I remember a fanfic that had Swindle as Lawyer.

@  SHIELD Agent 47 : (25 May 2017 - 10:08 PM)

No, I am referring to before Beast Wars: Uprising. I swear Swindle was a lawyer in a story before "A Brush With Infamy".

@  Telly : (25 May 2017 - 09:47 PM)

i cant get the link to work for the life of me. just go to the wiki and type "a brush with infamy" in the search box and itll come up

@  Telly : (25 May 2017 - 09:40 PM)

grr. check the post above this one. stupid non working link and i cant delete shouts...

@  SHIELD Agent 47 : (25 May 2017 - 09:25 PM)

I swear I've read the story but now I forget which one it is.

@  SHIELD Agent 47 : (25 May 2017 - 09:25 PM)

When has G1 Swindle been a lawyer before?

@  Rycochet : (25 May 2017 - 07:20 PM)

All I know about PennPenn is he's so good they named him twice.

@  Tm_Silverclaw : (25 May 2017 - 07:02 PM)

Nope.. Pennpenn is actually a Prinny dood!

The thing with the Scavengers being the main focus for these past three episodes only for them to get tossed by the wayside for the sudden arrival of the New Big Bad Starscream feels kind of like a retread of season 1's focusing on Steeljaw and his Pack for most of that season only for them to get tossed by the wayside for the sudden arrival of the New Big Bad Megatronus.

Megatronus showed up for one episode immediately before the finale. They've been driving home the fact that the Mini-Cons have been running from a bigger threat than the Scavengers since their first appearance. So no, it doesn't really feel like that at all to me.

"Disabled people don’t have special needs. We have very reasonable human needs. Our needs include freedom from abuse, violence, and mistreatment, the right to autonomy and self-direction, the right to represent ourselves, equal opportunity for education and employment, the right to accommodation, and societal inclusion and acceptance.

The need for accommodation isn’t a “special need”. It’s a basic human right. It’s a leveling of the playing field that allows us the same opportunities and chances as non-disabled people."

Yeah there was plenty of foreshadowing that the filler villains were just filler this time. Though actually Megatronus was kind of a filler villain since he only existed for that abrupt increase in the finale's cosmic significance.

I know we know from the cast and crew on social media that more of the show is coming, but if this is "arc"/"season"/wtf-ever is genuinely only six episodes along and ending with this three-parter/movie, I am deeply confused about the whole process of making this show. What IS this arc? What's the story behind its creation after the could-have-been-a-series-finale-if-they-wanted of "Decepticon Island"? You don't get 19-episode seasons.

Well hmmm...

We know Hasbro advertised a "Fall Event" for RiD. And the type of "event" Cartoon Network likes to run for their own shows nowadays is "A Week of New Episodes!" like a Steven Bomb. This would be pretty close to the right length for that sort of thing... I realize RiD isn't daily currently/usually but the thinking might have been something like we do a special event with a week (with a special two m-episode-on-one-day conclusion?) or even just a month of new eps on Sat in the Fall just to HAVE something new in the Fall and then an actual full new season in 2017?

-ZacWilliam, I can at least see some logic in that...

I was talking to McFeely about this on Twitter, but what I reckon is that for some unknown reason - I'm guessing CN being weird, because when aren't they - Hasbro were told that the next 13 episode season couldn't come out till 2017. Faced with having nothing to promote their second-half-of-2016 product, they then arranged for production of this six episode "mini-series" as a kind of stop gap. As Zac says, CN are keen on psuedo-mini-series type stuff nowadays, and I kind of expect this to air as three daily episodes proceeding the TV movie when it reaches the US.

This clearly isn't what the show staff were planning for the Next Thing That Happens - Prime flying straight back from Cybertron attests to that - so I feel pretty sure this is an isolated thing (rather than, say, the first six episodes of the next full season). By the end of it, I bet Optimus will be back on Cybertron, and the status quo will be unchanged from the end of S2, so that the "Prime investigates the Cybertron regime" plot they were clearly setting up can go ahead, as if these six episodes never happened.

"Miniseries" does sound like an apt description if this arc does indeed only run for 6 episodes. It calls to mind what Mighty Morphin Alien Rangers was the MMPR season 3, serving as a sort of "season 3.5" attached to the end of that season.


Though, what exactly is the source for this run of episodes being only six episodes long?

I think the concept of being educated and being able to educate is something that more people need more of in their lives.

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.

Well, there was that Hasbro Studios copy from earlier this year that suggested there'd be 45 episodes (or alternatively 42 and a TV movie) by the end of the year.

And I gather CN Australia have put out their S3 press release, announcing a six-episode run.

But yeah, I'd put money on this being a standalone thing, and that we'll get another full 13 episode season in the first half of 2017.

Yeah I bet on the "Hasbro preferred to have SOMETHING out for late 2016" horse too. Specially when you realize that the big Fall toy, the flying Optimus, usually only gets to reach worldwide stores in the second half of the year, so naturally they'd want something that aren't reruns there.

Great stuff.  In whatever capacity it comes (i.e. half-season or the like), I look forward to anything new in this continuity.  It even made me go back and watch the end of "Deadlock" to see exactly how the Dark Saber fell. Acknowledging 'Screamer's new body was an excellent shout-out. It's all alot of fun right now (the writers are doing a fantastic job), and the warrior toys continue to be inspired.  I welcome it all.
