Man I wish IDW could do a season 2.5 with a few writers like Michael Charles Hill or Donald F Glut or Paul Davids involved.

@  TheMightyMol... : (11 December 2019 - 04:33 PM)

They were looking for Skids, but the animators forgot he existed again.

@  Maximus Ambus : (11 December 2019 - 02:58 PM)

He regrouped with Omega Supreme, the Dinobots, Skyfire and the Protectobots.

@  Benbot : (11 December 2019 - 08:20 AM)

Did he get infected with the rest of the Autobots or did he smartly remain off-planet?

@  TheMightyMol... : (11 December 2019 - 05:38 AM)

He really just went to the beach for a couple of days, then called it in. Who's gonna follow up on it?

@  Maximus Ambus : (11 December 2019 - 05:05 AM)

Anyone really believe Cosmos searched far enough for more ingredient for Corrostop?

@  Nevermore : (11 December 2019 - 03:48 AM)

Oh, we are pretty good at "forgetting" about that. Insisting on sending people home on their overtime, THEN suddenly rushing to do the "backlog" stuff when it's really overdue.

@  wonko the sane? : (10 December 2019 - 05:43 PM)

I've yet to find an organization which didn't have a backlog of "stuff" that needs to be done, but isn't important enough to put on the schedule proper.

@  TM2-Megatron : (10 December 2019 - 05:01 PM)

I'm sure most good/bad (depending on your POV) bosses would be able to find something for the worker to do, in most cases, even if it's spending 8 hours pretending to push a broom around

@  Tm_Silverclaw : (10 December 2019 - 04:39 PM)

Still better than American jobs. x.x;

@  NotVeryKnightly : (10 December 2019 - 11:10 AM)

I'm pretty sure you've already mentioned this before. Especially that last one.

@  Nevermore : (10 December 2019 - 11:05 AM)

That can be fun if you're strong-willed enough. "Hey, you want to go home? Overtime reduction, there's nothing to do..." - "Nah, not today. I want to work."

@  Nevermore : (10 December 2019 - 11:04 AM)

This applies to the field of work as well. Meaning, your boss orders you to show up for a full shift, you show up on time and are absolutely willing to work, and then your boss realizes he has no work for you, your boss has to pay you for a full shift even if you don't work at all.

@  Nevermore : (10 December 2019 - 11:03 AM)

Fun fact: German law has a concept named "default in acceptance", which postulates that if there is a "service for payment" contract, the party that should provide the service correctly offers their due service, and the party that should pay fails to accept the service within due time, the second party still has to pay the first party even if there was no service delivered.

@  wonko the sane? : (08 December 2019 - 10:54 PM)

If it's seasonal affective disorder, check with your doc about vitamin D supplements.

@  Maximus Ambus : (08 December 2019 - 12:46 PM)

That's what I was thinking too, It's the christmas rush and if that's not stressful enough the cold weather can also impact mental health.

@  wonko the sane? : (08 December 2019 - 12:41 PM)

Might be a stupid question given the comment, BUT: have you done anything outside the ordinary lately? Might just be a stress reaction.

@  Maximus Ambus : (08 December 2019 - 12:29 PM)

I've experienced sleep paralysis with ghostly images and similar things in the past and can snap out of it through moving my fingers. I've definitely hallucinated before and members of both sides of the family have had similar experience, some suffered forms of mental instability in two cases schizophrenia.

@  wonko the sane? : (08 December 2019 - 10:47 AM)

So... either a hallucination or night terrors. Are you prone to this kind of thing?

@  Maximus Ambus : (07 December 2019 - 11:55 PM)

It kept repeating until I sat up.

@  Maximus Ambus : (07 December 2019 - 11:54 PM)

I've been up since three and when sheepish I was hallucinating something knocking twice against my bedroom door.

@  TheMightyMol... : (07 December 2019 - 06:58 PM)

Then repaint Apeface and Snapdragon as Transmetal Optimus Primal and Megatron. It's crazy enough to work.

@  PlutoniumBoss : (07 December 2019 - 05:32 PM)

Moral imperative.

@  Nevermore : (07 December 2019 - 05:13 PM)

Wishful thinking, rumor or leak?

@  Maximus Ambus : (07 December 2019 - 04:48 PM)

Snapdragon for Earthrise.

@  TM2-Megatron : (04 December 2019 - 10:22 PM)

Still not the weirdest thing a Nic Cage character has done in a film

@  TheMightyMol... : (04 December 2019 - 04:00 PM)

Couldn't be worse than him pissing fire as Ghost Rider.

@  Rycochet : (04 December 2019 - 03:38 PM)

The Tim Burton Superman Movie is the DC movie we deserve. It would have Nic Cage in a technosuit punching polarbears.

@  Paladin : (04 December 2019 - 02:59 PM)

Wonder Woman was great. Shazam was amazing. Aquaman... exists.

@  RichardT1977 : (04 December 2019 - 01:54 PM)

TBF, Aquaman and Shazam! were pretty good.

@  TheMightyMol... : (04 December 2019 - 01:00 PM)

Not a difficult feat.

@  Benbot : (04 December 2019 - 11:50 AM)

You just put more effort into telling a compelling story than all of WB's execs.

@  Cybersnark : (04 December 2019 - 11:41 AM)

Cue the flashback to Jonathan, reassuring a terrified child: "What you are is never as important as who you are." Cue Superman's response to Brainiac: "I already know who I am."*John Williams fanfare plays*

@  Cybersnark : (04 December 2019 - 11:38 AM)

I don't think we even really need to see Krypton. I'd start with Clark growing up in Kansas, thinking he's normal, and follow him through the development of his powers. There've been enough alternate takes on Krypton that it could actually work as a mystery; is this the pre-Crisis utopia, the sterile science world, or the relic of a fallen empire? Brainiac was there, and he tempts Clark with the knowledge of what he really is.

@  Otaku : (04 December 2019 - 11:12 AM)

First, a Krypton film, ending with baby Kal-El being found on Earth.  Then Supe's early career film, establishing his values... and if Jonothan Kent needs to die, it happens because of something like a heart attack while Clark is savnig folks on the other side of the world.  After we know Clark minimizes property damage and never kills, have Zod & Company show up and force him to make tough choices.

@  Otaku : (04 December 2019 - 11:07 AM)

Man of Steel seems like someone came up with a Superman trilogy and then the execs said "We've got to catch up to Marvel, make it one film!".  I don't mean that based on the film's actual pacing, but because various story beats make more sense to me if they weren't all squished together.

@  Cybersnark : (03 December 2019 - 07:44 PM)

I've been wanting to write a Superman movie trilogy for years; "Man of Steel" (featuring a Terminator-like Brainiac) was going to be first, with "Last Son of Krypton" (featuring the Eradicator) as the sequel and "Man of Tomorrow" (in which Luthor makes his face-heel turn) as the conclusion. Thanks to Snyder I have to re-arrange my titles.

@  Nevermore : (03 December 2019 - 06:15 PM)

I still wish "Man of Steel" had instead been an adaptation of both the John Byrne miniseries of the same name and the Jeph Loeb/Tim Sale miniseries "Superman For All Seasons".

@  SHIELD Agent 47 : (03 December 2019 - 04:42 PM)

A take I just read: Man of Steel is shot with such a lack of lighting that it is easier to discern what is going on in a porn film.

@  Maximus Ambus : (03 December 2019 - 12:20 PM)

Making Soylant is harder then it looks, it's not like the movies, you have to keep whacking and hacking at the ingredient, it'll scream and fight, maybe bite but eventually it will go down.

@  Paladin : (03 December 2019 - 11:48 AM)

varies from person to person.

@  Benbot : (03 December 2019 - 11:34 AM)

It's an acquired taste

@  CORVUS : (03 December 2019 - 11:17 AM)

Soylent? Its pretty awful.

@  unluckiness : (03 December 2019 - 02:49 AM)

Depends on your denomination of Christianity

@  Patch : (02 December 2019 - 05:52 PM)

@Benbot Do they have a soy-free version? Like maybe just "Lent?"

@  Maximus Ambus : (02 December 2019 - 02:03 PM)

Just occurred to me 'Autobot' Megatron happened in Target 2006.

@  Benbot : (02 December 2019 - 11:48 AM)

have you tried Soylent? It's pretty good! https://soylent.com/

@  Paladin : (02 December 2019 - 10:01 AM)

i prefer free-range human usually. pain in the ass to hunt though...

@  TheMightyMol... : (02 December 2019 - 09:42 AM)

If your human is all bones, you may have purchased a skeleton by accident. Contact your grocer to inquire about exhange policies.

@  Maximus Ambus : (02 December 2019 - 09:31 AM)

Vegans are categorised as human therefore just fall under Soylant, they are usually all bones.

Odd that the TF section of that sales page is missing like a lot of stuff (at least for me). Though the code still worked with things not on the sales page's list.

Yes! Does anyone who's more IDW Joe literate have recommendations for some key Joe stuff that's missing from the bundle? I tried browsing through a bunch of the stuff on ComiXology to figure out gaps but got confused very quickly about what was in the Humble Bundle collections and what wasn't. It looks like a bunch of the Joe books haven't been collected which makes it messier.

Any major Transformers stuff missing from the bundle?

Indeed.

 

Also wondering how much there is to get after the TMNT and Ghostbusters sales from earlier this year.

Bundle is missing nearly everything before Death of Optimus Prime (besides Infiltration and Devastation), plus Dark Cybertron and the Dark Prelude Spotlights. Comixology's discount code should work with any of IDW's Transformers material from before September 12th.

Okay, Joe first:

- G.I. Joe vol. 1: Issues #0-27, no trades on comiXology for some reason.
- G.I. Joe Special - Helix: Can't actually find this on comiXology?
- Origins: Issues #1-23, no trades again.
- Cobra II: Only need issues #5-9, the rest are in The Last Laugh from the bundle.
- Hearts and Minds: Link is to the trade.
- Infestation: Two issues.
- G.I. Joe vol. 2: You want issue #12 (since Cobra Command Vol. 3 is unavailable) and issue #21 (since it was never collected, best I can tell).
- Snake Eyes: You want issue #12 (same deal as Joe #12), the 'Snake Eyes & Storm Shadow Vol. 1' TPB (it got renamed, so this is actually #13-17) and issue #21 (also never collected).
- Target: Snake Eyes: This is #18-20 of both Joe vol. 2 and Snake Eyes.
- Cobra vol. 2: A weird one. You want issues #5-8 (the second TPB, which is missing), the 'Son of the Snake' TPB (actually the third TPB, but mislabelled as volume 2), the 'Oktober Guard' TPB, and the 2012 Annual down at the bottom.
- Infestation II: Two issues.
- G.I. Joe vol. 3: Nice and simple, TPB Vol. 1-3.
- Special Missions: TPB Vol. 1-3 again.
- G.I. Joe vol. 4 (The Fall of G.I. Joe): TPB Vol. 1-2.
- Snake Eyes, Agent of Cobra: Link is to the TPB.

This isn't done but I gotta run now, will come back and finish it later.

Hhuh. I bet that explains why vol 2 isn't in the bundle. Just an old-fashioned inventory-keeping cockup.

Have they made the Complete Allspark Almanac available digitally yet?  I see the two normal volumes, but I'd rather wait for the complete version.

 

Hmmm, do I need a digital copy of Sins of the Wreckers?  Yes I do.

The -acies (Autocracy, Monstrosity, Primacy), Dark Prelude (AKA the 2013 Spotlight issues), Dark Cybertron Vol. 1-2, Punishment, Sins of the Wreckers, Empire of Stone, Redemption, and the Vol. 10s of MTMTE and ex-RID are the missing trades from the bundle.

Of those, Dark Cybertron and the Vol. 10s are the most essential, but all of them except the -acies (which exist in their own little bubble mostly) do figure into the ongoing story in some way.

The only things that strictly fit that criteria are Dark Cybertron, Dark Prelude, the volume 10s and the Punishment one shot.

 

Of those the only one I'd say was actually essential is Dark Cybertron. But a good half of the Dark Prelude one off issues are legitimately great.

 

If you're looking for some earlier stuff, I mean a lot of it is relevant to RID, but the best stuff is the Roberts stuff to my mind, so issues 22 and 23 of the ongoing, and Last Stand of the Wreckers. They're directly referenced in MTMTE.

I think I have everything early except Spotlight: Kup, and on up to the big thing with that giant Decepticon thing. It was after it split into two books that I've been off and on, and I got a bunch of that stuff in the last Humble Bundle. So I guess I should have mentioned that as well.

 

Man, this is tough to keep up with unless you're right there as it happens. XP

 

Anyway, Comixology should have everything else I need then, right?

 

Edit: Got a headache just trying to look through Comixology's listing and parsing what's what. That they threw that Transfusion thing in there, too -- that's not part of their TF stuff, is it? It wasn't really labeled as such, despite placement.

 

Grabbed Sins of the Wreckers, and I think between the last two Humble sales, I have all of RiD and MTMTE, including Dark Cybertron. I got Combiner Wars via a previous Comixology sale, and Windblade is thrown in here, too. And I think I have all the Dark Prelude stuff... somehow. Somewhere. I think.

 

So I just need the Volume 10s (are those part of the Comixology sale? I don't know when they came out) and Punishment, and I ought to be good?

 

Edit #2: I'm not seeing any of those in Comixology's sale page.

 

I do see Transformers and MTMTE #56, though. Do I grab those, or am I already covered? Or are those part of Volume 10, which isn't in the sale?

 

And Til All Are One #3 and All Hail Optimus #55? Wha? What is this I don't even I'm so confused on what I need I thought All Hail Optimus was its own thing agafssdfffalahgl hfdafuiahfpahefhafasbn __/\__/\__/\/\/\/\/\_____________________________

I'd been sitting here thinking "people who just want to catch up on TF are so lucky, it's a hundred times easier than figuring out the Joe books", but maybe I only felt that way because I've been reading IDW's TF since before Furman left so I don't have to worry about it. 

 

GOOD LUCK
