And only Optimus was angry. Hound and Crosshairs were happy jerks. They loved killing because killing gave them pleasure.

@  TheMightyMol... : (24 April 2018 - 11:54 AM)

It was AoE, they were all jerks.

@  Broadside : (24 April 2018 - 11:09 AM)

I like his design. I think I've entirely blotted his personality out of my memory.

@  Shrug : (24 April 2018 - 06:53 AM)

Thats part of why I like the AoE/TLK bot crew so much. They seem like the angry jerks that'd actually survive in an extended war.

@  PlutoniumBoss : (24 April 2018 - 01:01 AM)

I dislike him despite the trenchcoat. He's a jerk, and not the lovable kind. One note, and that note is douchebag.

@  Cybersnark : (23 April 2018 - 04:47 PM)

Honestly, I like him DESPITE the "trenchcoat." I prefer to keep it folded behind him like some Gundam-style flight-pack.

@  SHIELD Agent 47 : (23 April 2018 - 11:04 AM)

People really love movieverse Crosshairs sheerly for the sake of his trenchcoat, don't they?

@  Plokatron : (22 April 2018 - 10:17 PM)

@RichardT1977 @TM2-Megatron I'm not normally one to pull the Ruined Forever card but I care less than zip about anything involving the 2017 Power Rangers movie! They screwed it up worse than Bay past DoTM and a Mastodon has four legs not six! While I'm on this mini rant anyone remember the scans of the Super Sentai Mecha book from a while back? Would it be against the rules to ask if anyone knows where to find the new updated book scanned? I really want the Concept Art for ideas.

@  D Immortalis : (22 April 2018 - 03:39 PM)

@  Steevy Maximus : (21 April 2018 - 08:51 PM)

The first Transformers live action film really IS a lot better than what popular culture has made it out to be.

@  TM2-Megatron : (21 April 2018 - 08:27 PM)

I dunno if I'd go that far. I enjoyed the first Bayformers more than the MMPR Movie remake

@  RichardT1977 : (21 April 2018 - 08:22 PM)

For the record, it was better than the (live-action) Transformers movies.

@  wonko the sane? : (21 April 2018 - 08:21 PM)

@  Sabrblade : (20 April 2018 - 11:14 PM)

Eh, I guess. He did fairly well on his own as an independent in his first appearance and such.

@  Otaku : (20 April 2018 - 10:04 PM)

@Sabrblade Vulture tends to fare poorly as his own boss. Working for a great version of Doc Ock ain't a bad gig... and I did ask if about "bad" as opposed to "not the best". ;)

@  Plokatron : (20 April 2018 - 09:53 PM)

@Egon1982 No my friend Mutator Spiders as in get caught in their web and you are mutated into a even more animalistic creature than you were. Hordika were Half Sentient beings half Wild animal and unlike Spiderman it affected each race slightly differnt with Toa being of a similar mutation to each other. My guess for Spiderman is he would become more spider like but with a inside skeletal structure hmm wonder what Visorak Venom would do to CNA make Dinobot Predacon like monsters or something wild?!

@  Paladin : (20 April 2018 - 04:15 PM)

compared to the "youth-sucking" gimmick from the other series? BIG step up.

@  Sabrblade : (20 April 2018 - 03:57 PM)

@Otaku: What about that show's take on Vulture? He had potential at first but he eventually just settled into being a lackey rather than his own boss.

@  Egon1982 : (20 April 2018 - 02:44 PM)

Did anyone else thought Thunder in Big Trouble in Little China when he was inflating looked like a garbage pail kid before he blew up into salad? I always thought that since seeing the movie in theaters at age 5. 

@  Egon1982 : (20 April 2018 - 02:25 PM)

Mutator spiders as in man-spider?

@  Otaku : (20 April 2018 - 11:06 AM)

Shocker was a pretty good villain in The Spectacular Spider-Man animated series. Wait, does that count since I can't think of a bad take on any character from that series? ;)

@  Arazyr : (20 April 2018 - 09:26 AM)

@  Plokatron : (19 April 2018 - 09:43 PM)

Webhead Vs. Mutater Spiders. Hmmm I can see this ending badly with HordikaMan Hey maybe it'd make Venom catchable with spider sense.

@  Broadside : (19 April 2018 - 09:16 PM)

Can't wait for Spider-Man to fight the Visorak

@  Liege : (19 April 2018 - 08:03 AM)

Don't mocks the Shocker!

@  unluckiness : (19 April 2018 - 04:46 AM)

But he's the second lamest Spider-Man villain

@  Tm_Silverclaw : (18 April 2018 - 10:56 PM)

You know.. for all intents and purposes, Shocker should have won in Kamen Rider 71.

@  Plokatron : (18 April 2018 - 06:55 PM)

:wtf :D :wtf Can't wait can't wait just a couple more days and I'm at Comiccon Cape! Gonna be a blast! I hope they have that freaking proper Master Sword Replica this year with the black handel (I love the one from the old comic drawn by the guy who did Cyborg 009)!!!

Given the words of IDW Editors and the evidence of a Misfits poster in Action Man #3, to me that's a confirmed yes-it-is.

Went ahead and made a Rom character page (because who else was I gonna make first?). Figured it was cool to copy some stuff from TF, but added a bit of info from the main series, like him tracing Wraith Colton to Portland rather than just showing up there (since we already know Colton is a Wraith in his series).

Regarding Jem, the book's writer has said that she doesn't imagine any Jem cameos in Revolution-verse books as being the Jem from her comic.

https://1979semifina...is-whole-hasbro

So, for my “canon money” when Jem easter eggs pop up in other things for the crossover (or beyond) that suggest Jem is “a thing” in that world, then I just pretend/assume that those are like alternate reality Jems and not OUR Jems since those worlds don’t necessarily gel with the very otherwise normal/realistic world that we’ve created for our Jems. ;)

And in looking for a quote for a counterargument I discover this.

 

Also unlikely to appear are Jem and the Holograms, whose IDW comic is frequently hailed as a reboot done right. “I think our plan is to treat it like Jem exists in the overall bigger universe, but I wouldn’t say that Rom and the Micronauts exist in Jem‘s universe,” clarifies Ryall. “What I mean is, you could hear—you might see a character singing the lyrics to a Jem song, or something like that—or wearing a Jem t-shirt, but I don’t think it’s a good idea to have Transformers and Snake Eyes show up in the Jem comic. I think that would just betray everything that the fans like about that book.”

 

So... *shrugs*. Honestly, I don't care if we cover it or not.

If it's basically "all the events of Jem take place in the IDWverse but Jem is also its own universe" we really might as well. It's not like anyone else is going to be covering it.

I don't think we can really derive that from the comments made, though. I think all we can assume is that there are versions of the Jem characters in the Revolutionverse. The extent to which they match up with the versions of the characters in the Jem comic isn't specified.

I took the statements to mean "Jem is a thing that exists in the IDWverse, but it's not necessarily the same Jem as the Jem depicted in the IDW Jem comics, which exist as a separate universe."

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.

If they're not going to cross over, though, doesn't that make them not part of the IDW Hasbroverse? I assume this new wiki isn't covering the Hama continuation of the Marvel GI Joe universe, is it?

Yeah, word of God is basically "the IDW Hasbro Universe contains them but they'll likely remain cameo level only, where the JEM Book Universe does not contain the rest cause it would screw-up the world/tone."

I think that's enough to include them as a concept if you wanted.


-ZacWilliam, would honestly be more interested in this wiki if it was less IDW centric and included more old school 80s Toon/Go-Bots type stuff anyway so take my opinion as you will.

My intent, at least, is for this to be essentially be a companion to TFWiki's coverage of the Transformers IDW Hasbroverse stuff, rather than a wholly independent entity. Something somebody could click through to if they want the broader picture of what Rom was doing when he's not guest-starring in Transformers books. Especially for something starting from scratch like this, I think it's best to maintain a tight focus just so that it has any kind of chance of being comprehensive at some point.

I mean, expand it to a "any old shit that Hasbro owns" wiki, and that puts, for instance, every G.I. Joe comic and episode and so on ever published within its remit, right? We'll be lucky if we ever put together decent coverage of just the IDWverse ones.

But as I said before, whilst I wouldn't be super-interested in regular contribution, I would absolutely be willing to put the nuts and bolts together for a GoBots wiki or whatever if people asked me to, once this wiki has hashed out what all the essential templates and stuff are. For realsies, people-who-are-into-GoBots, no more excuses!

Yeah, I mean, any kind of "expanded Hasbroverse wiki" notionally has to include COPS, Inhumanoids, the Jem cartoon, probably Visionaries... you gotta draw the line. (Not that I wager I'll be contributing to this wiki in any notable way, just chiming in.)

So, weird question. Is this meant to be a "complete" Revolution-except-Transformers wiki, or is it purely auxilliary to TFWiki?

Specific example: will IDW Hasbro Wiki have a full Revolution #1 article, or is that considered redundant since it merits full coverage on TFWiki?
