@  Robowang : (23 March 2017 - 08:45 AM)

Yikes. Sounds more like GTA.

@  Dracula : (23 March 2017 - 08:42 AM)

Someone drove a car through a crowd of people and then into the front gates of parliament, I think, and stabbed a police officer before being killed by other officers

@  Robowang : (23 March 2017 - 08:10 AM)

I coincidentally watched London Has Fallen yesterday afternoon, heard an offhand remark about a terrorist attack in London on the radio yesterday afternoon, and somehow put the two together in my sleepy haze. I need to read what actually happened.

@  SHIELD Agent 47 : (22 March 2017 - 11:21 PM)

That's relieving to hear.

@  Jalaguy : (22 March 2017 - 05:33 PM)

All good here, I don't work that far into the city.

@  Bass X0 : (22 March 2017 - 05:00 PM)

I'm way up north, so yeah.

@  SHIELD Agent 47 : (22 March 2017 - 02:34 PM)

I just saw the news. Are all of you Britons on this board alright?

@  Telly : (22 March 2017 - 01:20 PM)

spoilers dude!

@  Paladin : (22 March 2017 - 12:26 PM)

I'm pretty sure Kong doesn't fight Fox Studios...

@  NotVeryKnightly : (22 March 2017 - 12:25 PM)

I didn't know he was meeting the Fantastic Four's enemies.

@  Bass X0 : (22 March 2017 - 12:18 PM)

I might watch Kong: Skrull Island this weekend.

@  ▲ndrusi : (22 March 2017 - 10:48 AM)

(At least I'm assuming it was "instead." I guess I don't know for sure that Eddie Murphy's character wouldn't have been Kirk's love interest.)

@  ▲ndrusi : (22 March 2017 - 10:47 AM)

I dunno about that. Star Trek IV was pretty great but I'm haunted by the knowledge that at one point instead of a love interest it was going to have Eddie Murphy.

@  Paladin : (22 March 2017 - 07:28 AM)

you know a remake/movie's in trouble when adding Eddie Murphy to it might make things BETTER...

@  unluckiness : (22 March 2017 - 06:45 AM)

Is Eddie Murphy still Mushu?

@  Waspinator : (21 March 2017 - 11:56 PM)

The captain Mulan falls in love with is also getting replaced by a new character

@  MEDdMI : (21 March 2017 - 08:32 PM)

As long as we get the men throwing their manliness around, then crossdressing, I'll be happy.

@  MEDdMI : (21 March 2017 - 08:30 PM)

what....? b-but that song's so awesome! *lookd up info* oh, it's just "for now", but could change since it's not planned for release until 2018.

@  Waspinator : (21 March 2017 - 08:22 PM)

Oh wow, you're not kidding: they're actually planning to remake Mulan without the songs. Idiots.

@  MEDdMI : (21 March 2017 - 08:16 PM)

I'LL... MAKE A MAN... OUT OF YOU!!!

@  BlackMax : (21 March 2017 - 06:50 PM)

Much love to NightViper for that.

@  Paladin : (21 March 2017 - 06:49 PM)

can't; they cut that from the new movie.

@  Evac : (21 March 2017 - 06:48 PM)

@  NightViper : (21 March 2017 - 01:54 PM)

If they had a sword they would not get bored. They would not get bored, that horrible Horde. They would find a lord - a lord and his ward - and use their sword to slice the lord. Yes slice the lord just like a gourd! Then the ward they turn themselves toward that horrible Horde. That horrible terrible deplorable Mongol Horde. And they would not be bored if they had a sword.

@  Telly : (21 March 2017 - 01:23 PM)

@  Paladin : (21 March 2017 - 01:07 PM)

how many boars would the Mongols hoard if the Mongol Horde got bored?

I haven't seen grilled cheese and Super Ted cross over yet on the internet. Nor do I intend to search!

@  TheMightyMol... : (21 March 2017 - 01:56 AM)

This is the internet. Everything crosses over with everything if you look long enough. And if you're lucky, some of it isn't even porn!

@  Telly : (20 March 2017 - 06:55 PM)

trying to decide if autocracy was an attempt at an original story or just an excuse to quote the '86 movie for the gajillionth time. time to move on fom it (even if you did have a hand in writing it)!

@  Telly : (20 March 2017 - 04:38 PM)

certainly not! reminds me too much of those tests they made me take when i was a kid. the trauma. the trauma...

What, you don't like inkblots?

@  Telly : (20 March 2017 - 03:46 PM)

plus the -acies have my all time favorite artist on it (thats to be read with the most sarcastic tone possible btw)

@  TheMightyMol... : (20 March 2017 - 03:40 PM)

You're not missing anything. Either in the "quality of the stories themselves" way OR in the "adds to the greater universe" way.

@  Dracula : (20 March 2017 - 03:30 PM)

I still haven't read the -acies despite owning most of them in print...

@  Dracula : (20 March 2017 - 03:29 PM)

I like Origins, I feel like the later stories add to it and make it better than what it was when written.

@  Telly : (20 March 2017 - 02:57 PM)

@jalaguy-well if i get bored with the stories i can always skip them lol

@  TheMightyMol... : (20 March 2017 - 02:53 PM)

Origins felt like it was Megatron telling his own story and leaving out the parts he didn't like.

@  Jalaguy : (20 March 2017 - 02:49 PM)

Origins-and-acies-first reading orders are A Bad Idea.

@  Telly : (20 March 2017 - 02:32 PM)

origin felt like its writer was just waiting for someone to come along and fill in the gaps for him

@  Telly : (20 March 2017 - 02:32 PM)

im currently making my way through autocracy. im trying to read them all in the order on the wiki page; http://tfwiki.net/wi...ontinuity#Media

@  Rycochet : (20 March 2017 - 02:04 PM)

The 'acys have no excuse for their terribleness.

@  Rycochet : (20 March 2017 - 02:04 PM)

Megatron Origin gave us Megatron's lovely locks, so that's something. It wasn't horrible, but being condensed down to four issues really hurt it

@  Jalaguy : (20 March 2017 - 03:20 AM)

March Mayhem begins! Go vote now!

@  Whirl Maximus : (20 March 2017 - 12:18 AM)

I'd sooner have that, Autocracy, Monstrosity and Primacy as a alt universe story arc.

@  Noideaforaname : (19 March 2017 - 10:44 PM)

Megatron Origin is super disappointing if you go in right after reading Chaos Theory/MtMtE...

@  Telly : (19 March 2017 - 09:34 PM)

just read the megatron origin series. that really shouldve been 6 issues. it was very choppy and some things couldve used some further explaining

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.

Since Psychokhan never transformed in Intersectionality, I'm imagining him as a heavily retooled version of the Ax Animorphs toys with the scorpion mold.

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?
