Guys, SSSHHHHH. Megatron is passed out right over there, and dude is a MEAN drunk. Don't wake him up.

Megatron is hammered! Now, I, Starscream am leader of the Decepticons!

@  wonko the sane? : (20 July 2018 - 09:47 AM)

And megatron is so confused as to why no one is shooting at him anymore that he starts binge drinking.

So... the nicest beings in the universe are fighting with each other?

@  TheMightyMol... : (20 July 2018 - 08:01 AM)

No Decepticons. It's Autobots Civil War.

@  Gryllid : (20 July 2018 - 07:55 AM)

New York Comic Con is in October, maybe there?

@  Nevermore : (20 July 2018 - 05:49 AM)

So.. thus far, Hasbro only revealed Autobots for Siege. Any ideas which show they will reveal the Decepticons at?

@  Nevermore : (20 July 2018 - 05:44 AM)

So where did the "Stege" logo come from? All I can find is Sipher posting it an making fun of it. Where did that inconvenient version originate?

@  Sabrblade : (19 July 2018 - 11:53 PM)

True. But it was due to Transformers' use of the name that Saban at the time couldn't use it.

@  Tm_Silverclaw : (19 July 2018 - 11:38 PM)

But that's not necessarily a reference, just an attempt to use "Technobable" name.

@  Sabrblade : (19 July 2018 - 10:57 PM)

It's not Power Rangers, but Saban's VR Troopers was originally going to be titled "Cybertron".

@  Tm_Silverclaw : (19 July 2018 - 09:26 PM)

@paladin Energon would be too obvious. That's why I like Ore-13. It's not overt.. but still a nice nod.

@  Paladin : (19 July 2018 - 08:05 PM)

the original Sentai called it "Enetron." all they have to change is ONE LETTER.

@  Tm_Silverclaw : (19 July 2018 - 06:26 PM)

@saberblade True.. But I don't know.. I just want something simple like the "Energy source" in Beast Morphers to be Ore-13 or something like that.

@  Sabrblade : (19 July 2018 - 05:41 PM)

@Tm_Silverclaw: Operation Overdrive did have a weapon called the "Transtech Armor" ;)

@  SHIELD Agent 47 : (19 July 2018 - 04:49 PM)

*sigh* This is going to be a long subline.

@  SHIELD Agent 47 : (19 July 2018 - 04:49 PM)

I already hate the overuse of "STEGE".

@  Tm_Silverclaw : (19 July 2018 - 04:16 PM)

I just want Power Ranger refferenes in TF and Vice versa now.

@  Onyxstrike : (19 July 2018 - 11:32 AM)

I think Hasbro might be after more than just my money this time around with these reveals.

@  Otaku : (18 July 2018 - 02:39 PM)

@TheMightyMollusk Thanks for clarifying.

@  TheMightyMol... : (18 July 2018 - 12:34 PM)

@Otaku, most people were oblivious. The smart ones did their emergency shopping the day before, so there wasn't much left anyway.

@  MEDdMI : (18 July 2018 - 09:37 AM)

@wonko Only happened a few times and I don't remember the exact details, but yeah.

@  Otaku : (18 July 2018 - 08:06 AM)

@TheMightyMollusk Is that really the same thing? I mean, it is if the people were casually shopping and oblivious to the danger to them or the employees of the store, but if they were desperately trying to get needed supplies themselves... or am I just supposed to be smart enough to know you wouldn't have brought it up if it wasn't the former? >_<

@  wonko the sane? : (18 July 2018 - 07:59 AM)

Okay, what? I've had to explain why the TV wouldn't work when the power is out to children, but never to an adult in their right mind.

@  MEDdMI : (18 July 2018 - 07:44 AM)

*When I worked at the cable call center, some people wondered why their TV wouldn't work when there was an outage...

@  MEDdMI : (18 July 2018 - 07:43 AM)

w

@  TheMightyMol... : (18 July 2018 - 03:11 AM)

We had people still trying to shop while we were being pushed by state police to shut the store down due to flooding. The police finally had to help herd them out.

@  MEDdMI : (17 July 2018 - 07:36 PM)

Or working for an airline and people complaining about not being able to take off in severe weather, and expecting us to know when the bad weather will end. *points at window*

@  MEDdMI : (17 July 2018 - 07:34 PM)

Outages/fire alarms are fun when you work retail and people complain that they can't keep shopping.

@  Echowarrior : (17 July 2018 - 07:11 PM)

Outages occasionally happened at the fulfillment center I used to work at. Never fun.

@  Nevermore : (17 July 2018 - 04:51 PM)

Apparently the early shift (i.e. those who didn't participate in the walkout) were sitting in the cafeteria, waiting for power to return, while the late shift couldn't even enter the building.

@  wonko the sane? : (17 July 2018 - 04:18 PM)

Oh, wow. I thought the news about the website outtage would have been the topper, but that pretty much wins.

@  Nevermore : (17 July 2018 - 04:14 PM)

Whoopsie.

@  Nevermore : (17 July 2018 - 04:14 PM)

First the union called for a two-day strike yesterday, and then today the entire city where the Amazon warehouse I work at is located apparently had a power outage.

@  Nevermore : (17 July 2018 - 04:14 PM)

So,uh. Seems like Amazon's Prime Day really didn't go well this year.

@  unluckiness : (17 July 2018 - 09:55 AM)

It wasn't just blander and more polite bacon like I was expecting

@  SHIELD Agent 47 : (17 July 2018 - 09:51 AM)

Canadian bacon.

@  wonko the sane? : (17 July 2018 - 09:15 AM)

And the even more important question is: is that ballpit deep enough to conceal a body... what?

@  unluckiness : (17 July 2018 - 05:35 AM)

THe more important question is if they have a ball pit

@  SHIELD Agent 47 : (16 July 2018 - 10:18 PM)

How many attendees on average does TFcon get? And how about TFNation?

@  TheMightyMol... : (16 July 2018 - 06:31 PM)

I stopped reading it.

@  wonko the sane? : (16 July 2018 - 06:04 PM)

If talking about it here is all it takes to get you, why hasn't the oreo thread killed you yet?

Hmm. If we do decide to incorporate Machine Robo into this, maybe it'd be an idea to use TFWiki-style suites to link between the GoBots and their Machine Robo counterparts.

I'd be for suites. If you're looking for what your Hans Cuff toy got up to, you'll want to easily see what he did as Hans Cuff, as whoever he was on Cronos, as one of Ex-El's troops in the Robo Machines comic that ran in Eagle, etc. It should all be linked.

Machine Robo continued after Go-Bots, in a way that Diaclone didn't really continue after Transformers. They've fed back and forth, and you've got stuff like Robo Machines that uses the Gobot faction lines but the MR names. That's my argument for including Machine Robo, for whatever it's worth.

I'm not convinced we want real detail on the Fun Pub era stuff beyond a link, largely because the duplication seems wasteful. Also, I'm wary of the Transformers content overpowering the Gobot originated stuff, particularly since this is going to be run by TF fans.

Well, there's the issue of the "Season 2" stuff from FP that's not on the wiki, on top of all the various didn't-happen-in-a-TF-universe stuff mentioned on Facebook. That needs to be considered.

 

Again, the idea is a GB wiki can't be approached the same as a TF wiki, and here's one of the smaller but significant differences. We don't NEED to try and sum up Cy-Kill with a characterization writeup that has to take into account a ton of different takes, as we have to with so many G1 guys. You really only got the one. A clean delineation is much easier to make because there is so little to split. You can very easily make the two-decades-later "Fun Publications" or "Transformers" or whatever stuff a fully-separate h3-level header or whatever and put the relevant additions there.

Well I mean I don't have a history with the guy one way or the other but I'm certain Ignash is going to show up at some point.
"He learned, almost too late, that man is a feeling creature and, because of it, the greatest in the universe. He learned, too late for himself, that men have to make their own way, to make their own mistakes. There can't be any gift of perfection from outside ourselves. And, when men seek such perfection, they find there's only death, fire, loss, disillusionment, the end of everything that's gone forward. Men have always sought an end to toil and misery. It can't be given; it has to be achieved. There is hope, but it has to come from inside, from man himself."

He's the reason TFWiki exists, in the same way that the guy who shot Bruce Wayne's parents is the reason Batman exists.

(TFWiki's parents were the potential for Transformers articles on Wikipedia to ever be competently written.)

(I guess the IDW Hasbro Wiki and the GoBots Wiki are various Robins in this analogy. Hopefully neither of them is Jason Todd.)

If there's one thing from the Fun Pub Facebook fiction that I feel should absolutely be taken into consideration for coverage of the Hanna-Barbera cartoon, it's the episode order presented in this Facebook post, as the original airdate order makes no sense whatsoever (outside of the five-part pilot) with its haphazard placements of "Lost on Gobotron", the five parts of the Gobotron Saga, "Nova Beam", "Cy-Kill's Cataclysmic Trap",  "Doppleganger", "The GoBots That Time Forgot",  and "Mission: Gobotron". And the production order is even more disastrous.

 

Conversely, the "optimal viewing order" on the Facebook post provides the most coherent flow of something resembling a continuity narrative.

Truth be told, the placements for "Lost on Gobotron" and "Doppleganger" were my suggestions (as the list originally had them in their airing order slots in the list's original typing before it was edited into its current revision), but all the rest of everything else was all Jim's awesome handiwork. :thumbsup :love
