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.

And then Scrooge put Tiny Dull Mind on his shoulder. "God bless us every one!" shouted Tiny Dull Brain.

Sanity is the crutch of a dull mind.

@  BlackMax : (29 April 2017 - 06:04 AM)

The former is needful. The latter is a situationally necessary demeanor.

@  BlackMax : (29 April 2017 - 06:03 AM)

I think people are confusing sanity with normalcy.

@  TheMightyMol... : (29 April 2017 - 03:19 AM)

instead of blackjack, we have dice rolls in the RP and there was an actual card game in another thread.

@  Bass X0 : (28 April 2017 - 05:19 AM)

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

@  MEDdMI : (28 April 2017 - 05:16 AM)

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.

Another story idea: Revisionist History.

 

This story explores the events before Grimlock became a Maximal-he taught the rules of the games to both Maximal and Predacon, due to his gladiator status. His students look up to him, and he can't help but feel guilty for being forced by the Assembly to lie about the past-the games were not fun, they were a matter of life and death, and he lost many friends there. He finally snaps when Reptron, his youngest student and grand-nephew, is forced into the games despite not even being online for a decade, and dies trying to fight his way out. Meeting up with Repugnus and Cindersaur, they transfer their sparks into protoform bodies, and attempt to bomb the Assembly.

 

 

Also, I thought of another thing to go onto Shield Agent's post: Who would you have liked to seen in BWU?

 

I'dve like to see Gigatron/RID Megs.

Ooh, I'd probably want to see a story about Universe characters like Reptilion and Frostbite (who got a cameo, but not much).

 

Also, another story idea: Ethnocentrism. Set during the late years of the pre-Commandron/Maladroid era, it focuses on the Cybertronian Parliament's struggle when Metroplex makes a grand return to Cybertron.

I know Jim said he had some ideas for Tiger Hawk. I'd definitely love to see that. I also though it would be fun if the Constructicons had Scorpulator as a pet.

I don't have a story title for it, but I have an idea where Fasttrack alerts human kind about Galvatron's invasion, and gets killed by Scamper for doing the right thing.

 

Exploring the City-Bots partners more.

Characters who have not appeared in BWU? Too many, but I suppose my top 5 choices would be:

Convobat (who is confirmed to exist but has not appeared)
Bound Rogue (maybe as an Autobot, maybe as a Maximal)
RiD Scourge (under the name Black Convoy)
Cybertron Snarl (under the name Fangwolf)
Zazorigun (as a cityformer)

And I might or might not have Sentinel Maximus among those choices given the highly different circumstances in Uprising from 3H.

Also as someone who got started with the Unicron Trilogy, I would be very interested to see the dynamic between Armada Convoy and Galaxy Convoy. For that matter, it would be interesting to see if Uprising has analogues of Armada Megatron and Cybertron Megatron or not.

Blade Ranger sounds like it should be the name of an obscure Transformer. Like a non-show Beast Machines Basic or a late Micromaster or someone from the Chinese MMO.

Yup. What actually happened was I was busy writing Cultural Appropriation when I came to the Snapper scene and realized I needed a number for him. And there was James, buzzing around my office with the Blade Ranger toy making helicopter noises. So I said, "hey, buddy, can I see that for a moment?"

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.

Wasn't LID the only one who ever transformed? Like, that he did at all was something new and shocking since none of the Destructons could originally transform before?
