@  NotVeryKnightly : (20 January 2018 - 02:20 AM)

You just did.

@  Tm_Silverclaw : (20 January 2018 - 02:18 AM)

Can I just say that right now... I hate the USA?

@  NotVeryKnightly : (20 January 2018 - 01:34 AM)

There are languages where the days are named for numbers and Sunday is "one". Like Arabic.

@  Pennpenn : (20 January 2018 - 01:31 AM)

Isn't it sort of a religious thing for Sunday to be the start of the week but most people just go with the first day they go to work for the week?

@  unitremover : (20 January 2018 - 01:02 AM)

I feel like I've known plenty of Americans who'd say Monday is the first day of the week.

@  Pennpenn : (20 January 2018 - 12:57 AM)

Personally Monday will always be the first day of the week for me. The notion that Sunday is somehow the first day of the week seems completely nonsensical to me.

@  Pennpenn : (20 January 2018 - 12:57 AM)

I'm fairly sure it is in Australia, but that tends to get blurred because of US influence.

@  SHIELD Agent 47 : (20 January 2018 - 12:19 AM)

(It's Sunday here in the U.S.)

@  SHIELD Agent 47 : (20 January 2018 - 12:18 AM)

Anyone here live in a country where Monday is considered the first day of the week?

@  Tm_Silverclaw : (19 January 2018 - 08:40 PM)

Maybe?

@  Tm_Silverclaw : (17 January 2018 - 10:40 PM)

I hate brick and mortar stores around here.

@  SHIELD Agent 47 : (17 January 2018 - 10:38 PM)

But I like the feel of the brick and mortar search a bit more. And I can see inside packages at brick and mortar. True, Amazon has a good return policy, but I like buying once and settling.

@  SHIELD Agent 47 : (17 January 2018 - 10:37 PM)

I suppose I could save more if I bought more often from Amazon.

@  wonko the sane? : (17 January 2018 - 10:36 PM)

Closest I got to "free" was 30% off warpath, which just about lined him up to the canadian price had he ever shown up around me. The pile of loot saved me a pile, but it was still pricy.

@  Shrug : (17 January 2018 - 09:34 PM)

Yeah, I purposefully waited on them because I knew they'd be perfect "add onto orders to get free shipping" fodder. Already gotten two that way. Technically "free" and I barely had to wait.

@  SHIELD Agent 47 : (17 January 2018 - 09:21 PM)

That's how I feel about Prime Masters. Getting back into collecting last year taught me to be patient, which grants rewards most of the time.

@  Shrug : (17 January 2018 - 09:18 PM)

I want Starscream so hard after seeing him in person, but since he's the one being left behind by every other collector in my area, I feel like I can wait for a sale.

@  wonko the sane? : (17 January 2018 - 09:09 PM)

I mean: I maybe woulda jumped on starscream if I found a sale or something, but it wasn't a priority.

@  wonko the sane? : (17 January 2018 - 09:08 PM)

I only wanted the dinobots (cause... volcanicus.) but got saddled with three I didn't want due to the bundling. I'd still be waiting to order if I had waited on individual figures.

@  Tm_Silverclaw : (17 January 2018 - 08:27 PM)

Ahh.. I just ordered the whole case cause I wanted too. :)

@  wonko the sane? : (17 January 2018 - 06:49 PM)

Mostly PotP dinobots. Plus some stuff I couldn't opt out of to get those dinobots. And CW warpath... cause he was on sale.

@  Tm_Silverclaw : (17 January 2018 - 04:54 PM)

What ya getting?

@  wonko the sane? : (17 January 2018 - 04:38 PM)

Yay! My package from BBTS is in canada! I might even get it this week!

@  Benbot : (17 January 2018 - 02:04 PM)

@  Tm_Silverclaw : (17 January 2018 - 01:18 PM)

Buying a pre-built computer you should be okay.. It's just the individual parts that jumped huge in price.

@  Paladin : (17 January 2018 - 01:14 PM)

well all the idiots who invested in "bitcoin" will be selling theirs en masse to make ends meet so you might be able to find something cheap if you watch auctions.

@  Benbot : (17 January 2018 - 12:59 PM)

Is now a good time to buy a computer? Or should I wait?

@  Tm_Silverclaw : (17 January 2018 - 12:01 PM)

I pointed out that I'm on disabilty.. I don't have to pretend to be an adult anymore. ;D

@  MEDdMI : (17 January 2018 - 11:25 AM)

Also Bayonetta 3.

@  TheMightyMol... : (17 January 2018 - 10:55 AM)

Nintendo also announced Dark Souls for the Switch, so those people should shut up.

@  Tm_Silverclaw : (17 January 2018 - 10:51 AM)

Apparently people are freaking out that Nintendo announced something for kids and kids at heart. And people are absolutely freaking out about it.

@  TheMightyMol... : (17 January 2018 - 10:23 AM)

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?
