Never had any of the Masters Of The Universe toys but I did like the highly detailed and articulated look of them. I wanted Hasbro to produce an equally highly detailed and articulated range of toys based on Transformers Pretenders outer shells from the 1980s. Although they wouldn't be Pretenders with an inner transformable robot and characters like Thunderwing would have vehicle kibble but would not be able to transform.

@  Steevy Maximus : (26 June 2017 - 08:57 PM)

Still sad that Mattel didn't even take Neca up on the offer to continue the series. Supposedly, NECA initially tried to get Mattel to license the line (with Mattel's name still on it), but had to settle on "Staticion figures "

@  Dracula : (26 June 2017 - 08:04 PM)

every non-Skeletor or He-Man was like winning a battle

@  Dracula : (26 June 2017 - 08:04 PM)

it was just such a difficult line to collect!

@  Dracula : (26 June 2017 - 08:04 PM)

I still have all my 2002 MOTU figures and even though they're usually in storage I don't think I could bear to part with them

@  Echowarrior : (26 June 2017 - 08:02 PM)

Same here. The show that went with it was surprisingly good.

@  RichardT1977 : (26 June 2017 - 08:01 PM)

I totally agree with you about 2002 MotU though.

@  Rycochet : (26 June 2017 - 06:50 PM)

Because people want some approximation of the look and feel of the vintage console and playing experience? It's not like the Mini-Snes is being produced instead of these games being released on the switch VC, that'll happen eventually anyway

@  RichardT1977 : (26 June 2017 - 06:39 PM)

Sega did it with some of their Genesis titles for the PS3 and XBox 360, and Midway did the same. Several times.

@  RichardT1977 : (26 June 2017 - 06:39 PM)

Instead of making classic consoles with classic games built in, why not release those games in classic sets for the Switch?

@  Rycochet : (26 June 2017 - 06:25 PM)

The fate of 2002 MOTU still makes me sad, I loved that line.

@  Tm_Silverclaw : (26 June 2017 - 05:59 PM)

Bah. There are many many toys rarer than Movieverse toys. Any character that wasn't He-Man or Skeletor for instance! :)

@  Paladin : (26 June 2017 - 05:16 PM)

Nintendo consoles are the only things rarer than new waves of Movieverse toys.

@  Telly : (26 June 2017 - 04:12 PM)

*nevermind*

@  TM2-Megatron : (26 June 2017 - 03:48 PM)

Nintendo claims they'll be producing "significantly more" units of the SNES, so maybe there's a chance. It'd be better this time if they just took pre-orders, and based their production on that

@  Dracula : (26 June 2017 - 03:46 PM)

Nobody is getting that.

@  Bass X0 : (26 June 2017 - 03:10 PM)

Anyone getting the SNES Classic with StarFox 2?

@  SHIELD Agent 47 : (26 June 2017 - 09:52 AM)

I have yet to see any TR wave 5 items at retail in my area, only in Internet reports from overseas.

@  unluckiness : (26 June 2017 - 09:28 AM)

They're clogging shelves here, which is odd. I expected the Generations toys to be somewhat cut down in favor of movie stuff.

@  Pennpenn : (26 June 2017 - 08:11 AM)

I dunno, I got a bunch of "Blitzwing and Octone cosplaying as Megatron and Optimus Prime" in my local TRU, does that help?

@  Paladin : (26 June 2017 - 07:52 AM)

so will TitanReturns Blitzwing & Octone ever actually come out or have they just vanished into neverland?

@  Dekafox : (26 June 2017 - 07:10 AM)

With explosions instead of pouches and pockets.

@  Nevermore : (26 June 2017 - 02:45 AM)

Michael Bay is the Rob Liefeld of the movie industry.

Now if we could explode Justin Bieber, I might pay to watch it.

@  NotVeryKnightly : (25 June 2017 - 11:47 PM)

Bieber isn't nearly as over-the-top as explosions director.

@  Bass X0 : (25 June 2017 - 11:35 PM)

Michael Bay is Justin Bieber of the movie industry- everyone makes fun out of his over- the- top -style but he keeps pulling in huge amounts of money

@  Patchouli Kn... : (25 June 2017 - 07:10 PM)

Ah.

@  Dracula : (25 June 2017 - 07:07 PM)

It's pronounced like Megadeus

@  Patchouli Kn... : (25 June 2017 - 06:59 PM)

Is the "Zeus" pronounced like "Zoose" or "Zayus?"

@  Dracula : (25 June 2017 - 05:47 PM)

sorry I saw the name and just got excited

@  Dracula : (25 June 2017 - 05:47 PM)

NITRO ZEUS

@  Paladin : (25 June 2017 - 06:57 AM)

nobody here has moved past Wave 1. maybe if they hadn't crammed it with repaints....

@  Noideaforaname : (25 June 2017 - 06:46 AM)

Nitro's gonna be a pain in the butt to find, isn't he?

@  Pennpenn : (25 June 2017 - 03:51 AM)

Actually, on the subject of TLK toys, the voyager Nitro Zues or whatver looks pretty good. If I see it cheap I might give it to the Thunderwing head.

@  Pennpenn : (24 June 2017 - 09:58 PM)

Been playing a bit of Saints Row 4 and honestly the Blast Blast is hilariously overpowered.

@  Rycochet : (24 June 2017 - 05:28 PM)

And a better headsculpt.

@  unluckiness : (24 June 2017 - 05:23 PM)

It actually has half decent gimmicks too.

@  TheMightyMol... : (24 June 2017 - 04:03 PM)

It's still crap but at least it takes up less space.

@  Rycochet : (24 June 2017 - 10:31 AM)

I'd rather have Armada Sideswipe than Alternator Sideswipe.

Alright Mother Hubbards, let's stop beating around the bush, I'm doing this:

IDW Hasbro Wiki Main Page

Give me suggestions for what templates need importing. Just had a successful go at bringing storylink over, so if I have a list I'm pretty sure I can get everything working.

For things like Revolutionaries and post-Revolution GI Joe, which will presumably be covered (for the most part) in full on TFWiki, would this link back despite them not being just Transformers? No sense in redundancy of information, but... well, they're not Transformers.

I think grouping things under the sole basis of "TFWiki doesn't allow them" is an incredibly bad idea.

(It's not like there's that much GoBots information in existence. Anyone could probably put a functional GoBots wiki together in a week if they wanted to.)

(Also, if the GoBots wiki happens, you might want to consider having character infoboxes unlike TFwiki; f'rinstance, most GoBots characters have only one known alt-mode, unlike Transformers characters.)

I don't have a ShoutWiki account, but would be happy to get one and contribute to this. Especially since I only really started to become active on TF Wiki with Revolution.

I can do ROM stuff.

My suggestion would be that anything TFWiki will be covering in entirety gets linked out. Zero point in duping content/splitting effort.

I agree with Broadside that arbitrary grouping together of things is probably unwise.

But the positive is that once I've hacked together the CSS for all the necessary templates on this wiki, it ought to be pretty easy to set up another one for GoBots.

I feel like TFWiki could stand to have character infoboxes, though. Faction, franchise and year of origin, continuity family.


(Yes, I know there's the first sentence in articles, but it was always a pretty unappealing design choice to me.)

Okay, so I've set up what's hopefully the basic set of templates needed.

I copied over your Micronauts: Revolution template as a test bed, Broadside, and everything seems to be in working order:

http://idwhasbro.sho...uts:_Revolution

Interwiki linking is done by appending 'transformers:' to the start of a link, see that article for examples. If anyone runs into a template they want, tell me and I'll try and sort it out.

Seriously, though, if it's a Revolution wiki, then sure, it's a bad idea. If it's, say, an expanded Hasbroverse idea, then GoBots probably fits right in. And I think the folks at Hasbro would be tickled pink to see an expanded Hasbroverse wiki, assuming the quality is there.

I'm not sure how you'd define "expanded Hasbroverse", though. Do you include, like, Stretch Armstrong? Candy Land? Oh, god, would you cover the entirety of Dungeons and Dragons!?

I think that's just generally too broad a scope to be useful. A "GI Joe and offshoots wiki" covering all iterations of those franchises, sure. An "IDWverse Wiki" covering the non-Hasbro properties but only their IDWverse iterations, sure. But, like... "non-Transformers Hasbro properties that have interacted with Transformers in some way" is just going to be a mess.
