Just a few more days until my Battletech key goes live on GOG...

@  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)

@  Paladin : (21 April 2018 - 08:13 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? ;)

@  Bass X0 : (15 April 2018 - 03:52 AM)

Should we as a society change our way of life, culture and general thinking to that which people fifty years from now could look back without being judgemental of our ways? Today we look back at people from fifty years ago and openly criticise things that were considered acceptable and normal back then as not fitting in with our modern day standards that we have to censor them, or have the disclaimer that's just how it was back then. So surely things we as a population consider normal and acceptable today may not fit in with the standards of fifty years from now. But how do we know what would be acceptable and normal fifty years from now that we are supposedly doing wrong today? We don't. That's the point when we are applying modern day standards and way of thinking to a time fifty years ago.

@  Plokatron : (14 April 2018 - 11:09 PM)

Thank you my friend. I hope so too.

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?

You can take it as a piece of fanart.

That's an interesting theory for Skyklik, but there wasn't any specific identity in mind for him, aside from the Diaclone triplechanger.

(The name was the result of a little contest I had with Japanese fans at a fan event.)

 

Being a Manchurian Candidate kind of scenario with him as a sleeper agent for Zero's faction, he could be almost anyone.

I like to resist the urge to overexplain things, and intentionally leave a few points vague in the backstory.

 

His involvement had been decided in 2013 or 2014, before the name Fumes or such had been associated with that figure.

I considered changing it to a different name, but since he's a victim of brainwashing and in fact doesn't remember his own name,

you can decide his real name is whatever you want it to be.

 

Interesting. "Skyklik" won over "Popcopter" and "Cloudwise".
