Theres possibly a transformer-collecting rick hopping the multiverse that has all the fan vote options available through the years.

@  unluckiness : (21 July 2018 - 10:38 PM)

I have the green one and it's more or less okay. One side has louder clicks but it was like that form the get go

@  Shrug : (21 July 2018 - 05:23 PM)

Well, his gold isn't quite the color I associate with GPS and I see little, if any swirling in it. But hip ratchets in gold plastic that loudly clicked once only to be suddenly silenced. Hrmm. Messing with it now, one leg has no ratcheting and the other ratchets at something like 80 degrees apart.

@  Nevermore : (21 July 2018 - 03:37 PM)

I like that figure. :(

@  Nevermore : (21 July 2018 - 03:37 PM)

Please no GPS on HFTD Sea Spray...

@  Darth Gonzo : (21 July 2018 - 03:32 PM)

That moment when you realize GoBots is being talked about more then Transformers.

@  Shrug : (21 July 2018 - 02:11 PM)

Anyone have experience with HFTD Seaspray? I just bought a used one (for a buck!) and all his hip ratchets broke on first movement. Does he just generally have fragile ratchets or is GPS starting?

No Decepticons. It's Autobots Civil War.

New York Comic Con is in October, maybe there?

@  Nevermore : (20 July 2018 - 05:49 AM)

So.. thus far, Hasbro only revealed Autobots for Siege. Any ideas which show they will reveal the Decepticons at?

@  Nevermore : (20 July 2018 - 05:44 AM)

So where did the "Stege" logo come from? All I can find is Sipher posting it an making fun of it. Where did that inconvenient version originate?

@  Sabrblade : (19 July 2018 - 11:53 PM)

True. But it was due to Transformers' use of the name that Saban at the time couldn't use it.

@  Tm_Silverclaw : (19 July 2018 - 11:38 PM)

But that's not necessarily a reference, just an attempt to use "Technobable" name.

@  Sabrblade : (19 July 2018 - 10:57 PM)

It's not Power Rangers, but Saban's VR Troopers was originally going to be titled "Cybertron".

@  Tm_Silverclaw : (19 July 2018 - 09:26 PM)

@paladin Energon would be too obvious. That's why I like Ore-13. It's not overt.. but still a nice nod.

@  Paladin : (19 July 2018 - 08:05 PM)

the original Sentai called it "Enetron." all they have to change is ONE LETTER.

@  Tm_Silverclaw : (19 July 2018 - 06:26 PM)

@saberblade True.. But I don't know.. I just want something simple like the "Energy source" in Beast Morphers to be Ore-13 or something like that.

@  Sabrblade : (19 July 2018 - 05:41 PM)

@Tm_Silverclaw: Operation Overdrive did have a weapon called the "Transtech Armor" ;)

@  SHIELD Agent 47 : (19 July 2018 - 04:49 PM)

*sigh* This is going to be a long subline.

@  SHIELD Agent 47 : (19 July 2018 - 04:49 PM)

@  Tm_Silverclaw : (19 July 2018 - 04:16 PM)

I just want Power Ranger refferenes in TF and Vice versa now.

@  Onyxstrike : (19 July 2018 - 11:32 AM)

I think Hasbro might be after more than just my money this time around with these reveals.

@  Otaku : (18 July 2018 - 02:39 PM)

@TheMightyMollusk Thanks for clarifying.

@  TheMightyMol... : (18 July 2018 - 12:34 PM)

@Otaku, most people were oblivious. The smart ones did their emergency shopping the day before, so there wasn't much left anyway.

@  MEDdMI : (18 July 2018 - 09:37 AM)

@wonko Only happened a few times and I don't remember the exact details, but yeah.

@  Otaku : (18 July 2018 - 08:06 AM)

@TheMightyMollusk Is that really the same thing? I mean, it is if the people were casually shopping and oblivious to the danger to them or the employees of the store, but if they were desperately trying to get needed supplies themselves... or am I just supposed to be smart enough to know you wouldn't have brought it up if it wasn't the former? >_<

@  wonko the sane? : (18 July 2018 - 07:59 AM)

Okay, what? I've had to explain why the TV wouldn't work when the power is out to children, but never to an adult in their right mind.

@  MEDdMI : (18 July 2018 - 07:44 AM)

@  TheMightyMol... : (18 July 2018 - 03:11 AM)

We had people still trying to shop while we were being pushed by state police to shut the store down due to flooding. The police finally had to help herd them out.

@  MEDdMI : (17 July 2018 - 07:36 PM)

Or working for an airline and people complaining about not being able to take off in severe weather, and expecting us to know when the bad weather will end. *points at window*

@  MEDdMI : (17 July 2018 - 07:34 PM)

Outages/fire alarms are fun when you work retail and people complain that they can't keep shopping.

@  Echowarrior : (17 July 2018 - 07:11 PM)

Outages occasionally happened at the fulfillment center I used to work at. Never fun.

@  Nevermore : (17 July 2018 - 04:51 PM)

Apparently the early shift (i.e. those who didn't participate in the walkout) were sitting in the cafeteria, waiting for power to return, while the late shift couldn't even enter the building.

@  wonko the sane? : (17 July 2018 - 04:18 PM)

Oh, wow. I thought the news about the website outtage would have been the topper, but that pretty much wins.

@  Nevermore : (17 July 2018 - 04:14 PM)

Whoopsie.

@  Nevermore : (17 July 2018 - 04:14 PM)

First the union called for a two-day strike yesterday, and then today the entire city where the Amazon warehouse I work at is located apparently had a power outage.

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!

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?
