I've been watching clips of the Japanese dub of the Sunbow movie. Comes with added SCREAMS!

But the ugly barnacle realised he would grow up to become a beautiful oyster. Only he was killed before then for being so ugly.

@  Locoman : (29 April 2017 - 09:46 AM)

That didn't help at all!

@  Evac : (29 April 2017 - 09:32 AM)

Once there was an ugly barnacle. He was so ugly, that everyone died! The end.

Sanity is the crutch of a dull mind.

They could start their own Beast Mayhem with Blackjack and Hookers.

There's plenty of talented artists in Beast Mayhem! ....though we tend to draw things that can't be posted anyway. :doh

@  wlg3 : (28 April 2017 - 01:15 AM)

I really enjoy the creative sub forums of TFW, though, like their kitbash and fan art forums. The creative forums have lots of talented, friendly people and is an active, supportive community.

@  wlg3 : (28 April 2017 - 01:13 AM)

Gotta agree with Evac... TFW has a lot of cool, talented people, but they're overwhelmingly outnumbered by unbearable neckbeards

@  LordGigaIce : (27 April 2017 - 10:20 PM)

I do enjoy the TFW podcast. and that subforum's usually very civil. It's the best place to actually talk about TFers there :D also the Radicons forum is ok if you just like looking at kitbash pr0n

@  Evac : (27 April 2017 - 10:18 PM)

There's some cool people on the site, thankfully. It's just the morons tend to outnumber them... Which is generally the rule on most forums thanks to the GIFT.

@  Evac : (27 April 2017 - 10:17 PM)

In all honesty, the better parts of the site are the non-TF parts.

@  LordGigaIce : (27 April 2017 - 10:13 PM)

yeah, and their love of 3p is just...i don't get it.

@  Noideaforaname : (27 April 2017 - 10:03 PM)

TFW can be... literal with the rules sometimes. Like, a discussion about favorite human characters gets LOCKED if you mention Agent Fowler because "all Prime discussion belongs in the RiD forums".

@  LordGigaIce : (27 April 2017 - 09:48 PM)

Also, as far as TFW's No Politics goes...it's nice in theory but then you end up with the current IDW stories that lean HEAVILY into politics and religion. I've had more than a few lengthy posts exploring the parallels between the IDW Decepticon movement and various real world socialist movements deleted because it was technically "politics." So hug 'em. I really only visit there these days to poke around the podcast subforum.

@  LordGigaIce : (27 April 2017 - 09:45 PM)

My person canon is that the Quintessons created Cybertron as a factory to make the TFers as mechs, but they became self aware and they revolted. then Cybertronian society began to develop and the events of the revolt became mythologised as the stories of the Knights of Cyberton, the Thirteen, etc...real events that became the basis for religion, essentially.

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.
