Is that why I found a Yamask in the cereal box?

@  Paladin : (29 May 2017 - 06:29 PM)

taste may vary from person to person.

@  Telly : (29 May 2017 - 06:03 PM)

soylent green toast crunch yummy yummy!

@  D Immortalis : (29 May 2017 - 05:47 PM)

since were pretty sure he ate the other bakers, i figure kids love it because it tastes like people...PEOPLE!

@  TheMightyMol... : (29 May 2017 - 04:07 PM)

But have you sighted why kids love the sweet taste of Cinnamon Toast Crunchâ„¢?

@  RichardT1977 : (29 May 2017 - 03:14 PM)

BTW: added a sighting to my recent TR Deluxe Wave 4 post (edited instead of double-posted).

@  Bass X0 : (28 May 2017 - 02:59 PM)

Back in my day, I called them "Mini-Spies".

@  Whirl Maximus : (28 May 2017 - 02:06 PM)

Think about the implications of it though, robots in disguise themselves infiltrated and paranoid by the recent shifts in the status quo.

@  unluckiness : (28 May 2017 - 07:47 AM)

I'm kinda glad. A couple tie-in stories aside, Secret Invasion was a mess.

@  Steevy Maximus : (28 May 2017 - 07:23 AM)

Almost makes you wonder if some of the aborted Micronauts relaunch concept didn't slip in...

@  Whirl Maximus : (28 May 2017 - 07:20 AM)

Titan Masters could quite easily have been Transformers: Secret invasion, the return of the Mini-cons/Stentarians but noooooo, it had to be whatever the pit it is.

@  unluckiness : (27 May 2017 - 07:33 PM)

Even if it's just 4 bucks, people shouldn't be patronizing obvious scams.

@  TheMightyMol... : (27 May 2017 - 05:37 PM)

What's the shipping price?

@  Steevy Maximus : (27 May 2017 - 05:18 PM)

Yeah, but it's cheaper than all the Hong Kong sellers running at $65+

@  2017 : (27 May 2017 - 05:07 PM)

It sounds like a scam.

Grax is only invisible when no one is looking at them. No idea what's wrong with your Xort.

@  Whirl Maximus : (27 May 2017 - 04:16 AM)

Titan Masters is filled with false advertising, Grax doesn't make any figure invisible and Xort doesn't do anything with gravity. Maybe they'll be in the Transformer toys of tomorrow which will be actual robots with AI.

@  Echowarrior : (26 May 2017 - 09:16 PM)

Thor was a great guy. Same as most of the Asgard. Loki was a jerk, though.

@  wonko the sane? : (26 May 2017 - 07:21 PM)

I think thor was just too smart to NOT call us stupid next to him.

@  Pennpenn : (26 May 2017 - 07:18 PM)

Six of one, half a dozen of the other?

@  wonko the sane? : (26 May 2017 - 07:17 PM)

I always interpreted that scene to mean that asgardians weren't capable of breaking down problems in the same way as humans.

@  Pennpenn : (26 May 2017 - 06:58 AM)

I mean, SG1 was a good show on balance. One of my favourite things was Thor admitting he found humans good to keep around because they so often came up with stupid ideas that nevertheless worked out.

@  Whirl Maximus : (26 May 2017 - 05:59 AM)

Those episodes were 1969 and 2010.

@  Whirl Maximus : (26 May 2017 - 05:59 AM)

Stargate sg1 was loosely based on the movie, it thrived on continuity it was impressive how old situations and solutions would come back in unexpected ways. Continuum had it's villain use the characters own solution in two previous episodes against them.

@  Pennpenn : (26 May 2017 - 05:39 AM)

And yeah, name is based on a part of my surname. Can't remember why I picked it. Lost to memories of the primordial early 2000s.

@  Pennpenn : (26 May 2017 - 05:37 AM)

Like how Abydos in the movie is in another galaxy on the far side of the universe, but Abydos in SG1 is the closest world to Earth (and that was the only reason the gate could still get there) and even getting to other galaxies was impossible with the normal gates.

@  Pennpenn : (26 May 2017 - 05:35 AM)

I was very tired when I said that, but what I meant was a lot of stuff that is in the original Stargate movie is contradicted a lot in Stargate SG1.

@  unluckiness : (26 May 2017 - 05:29 AM)

OBJECTION

@  Tm_Silverclaw : (26 May 2017 - 12:48 AM)

I remember a fanfic that had Swindle as Lawyer.

@  SHIELD Agent 47 : (25 May 2017 - 10:08 PM)

No, I am referring to before Beast Wars: Uprising. I swear Swindle was a lawyer in a story before "A Brush With Infamy".

@  Telly : (25 May 2017 - 09:47 PM)

i cant get the link to work for the life of me. just go to the wiki and type "a brush with infamy" in the search box and itll come up

@  Telly : (25 May 2017 - 09:40 PM)

grr. check the post above this one. stupid non working link and i cant delete shouts...

@  SHIELD Agent 47 : (25 May 2017 - 09:25 PM)

I swear I've read the story but now I forget which one it is.

@  SHIELD Agent 47 : (25 May 2017 - 09:25 PM)

When has G1 Swindle been a lawyer before?

@  Rycochet : (25 May 2017 - 07:20 PM)

All I know about PennPenn is he's so good they named him twice.

@  Tm_Silverclaw : (25 May 2017 - 07:02 PM)

Nope.. Pennpenn is actually a Prinny dood!

In my head the Cataclysm Scales has nothing to do with BWU. VP was talking about a different Tusks / Scales in a different universe.

The Cataclysm-verse Scales sentence gets cut off, so exactly what his disposition is never gets defined.

-JimS

 

Ah, I see. Thanks for clarifying that, Jim.

 

I take it that as various GoBots including the lead trios are still in their home reality as of "Last Sunset", then the story of how Cataclysm Crasher and Zero go from Gargent to Malgus is a story yet to be told by you and/or Hydra?

 

Though on that subject, how is it possible that "Cultural Appropriation" says Motosan went to Level 77 but in "Last Sunset" Crasher is beating up Mr. Moto? The Antares Eight screwed up their list?

I mean, as far as we know, Last Sunset could have occured by the time Cultural Appropriations has happened. There data's clearly off in places-Mr. Moto has returned by part 4, despite Man-O-War, BuggyMan, and Rest-Q being on their lists, since it seems like they arrived relatively recently.

The thing about dimension travel: it's not just about which one you pop up in, it's also about where and when you pop up in it.

 

Crasher evidently arrived in Animated prior to the events of the main series, for example, while Zero is in Trypticon Prison, which has that purpose in modern day, which probably means he didn't travel with her, seeing as she was captured by the Decepticons.

Well how do you know Mr. Moto returned as opposed to never traveled and thus his listing is an error?

Well, considering that we know Jim helped Andrew with parts of SC, he presumably would have pointed it out to Andrew and it would of been changed.

There's also Bug Bite's still-undisclosed fate.

 

 

And there's the original e-HOBBY G1 GoBots bio from 2004 that had the six GoBots of that set traveling from their Cataclysm-doomed universe into the Japanese G1 cartoon universe, in which their GoBot technology would be used to create the Spychangers.

 

 

Function: Experimental interdimensional exploration team

 
They were the first group of warriors on Cybertron to use the name “Gobots.” Although they outwardly appear to be average Transformers with conventional alternate modes, they are in fact undercover agents hailing from another galaxy. Their special operations team is banded together from members of two opposing factions working together to save the inhabitants of their homeworld from the Cataclysm. While carrying out secret recon such as intelligence gathering, diplomatic exchange, and space-time alteration experiments, their unique transport methods and cyborg physiology have contributed much to Cybertron, leading to the creation of advanced new generations of Transformers such as the Spychangers.
 
Weapons: Individual built-in firepower

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.

Regarding things like Bug Bite's final whereabouts, there were things I could have added to the story, but just didn't think it had any place in the narrative. Same goes for in what way the Gobots ended up in Japanese continuity at some point. Could be through something with Axiom nexus, could be something with the Caretaker... Despite being the last of the published TCC fiction, I didn't really want to play cleanup for every plot point that had ever been left open by the TCC or tangential TF ficton. 

 

As for the finale of the story, what does it mean to you?

I had a couple explanations in mind for the story and conclusion, one more surreal than the other, but I'd be more interested to hear how people interpret it.

 

As for the overall themes I wanted to address through the narrative:

*What does being a "man" (or human) mean to the Gobots? Is it simply a measure of courage?

*Should one strive to attain a goal without sacrifice, or accept it if it will lead to a greater success? To what extent is sacrifice acceptable?

*Symmetry and satellites: Although published in 4 chapters, the story has 5 main sections (with two published in the last installment). 

In other words, the story orbits around the Caretaker, which makes its first appearance in the middle chapter. What other uses of symmetry or parallel structure can you see in the story?

I imagine Bug Bite's probably somewhere in the SG verse. Might've joined up with Classics Megatron or SG Rodimus. Perhaps even both.
