Did anyone have a Prime team in Marvel vs. Capcom 3 consisting of Sentinel, Nova and Nemesis?

@  Robowang : (21 September 2017 - 10:06 PM)

Ok, I can't find the "Savage on a Ravage" pic that soneone pisted. Can anyone link me to it?

@  wonko the sane? : (21 September 2017 - 12:47 PM)

I'm also sure you don't sparkle like a disco ball, otherwise someone woulda run you over by now.

@  Dracula : (21 September 2017 - 12:40 PM)

anyway I don't die in sunlight, I just get tired.

@  Dracula : (21 September 2017 - 12:40 PM)

correct

@  wonko the sane? : (21 September 2017 - 11:46 AM)

I'm pretty sure most vampires would cause a gremlin infestation just for the giggles.

@  Noideaforaname : (21 September 2017 - 11:42 AM)

Hmm, a vampire would have a hell of a hard time getting rid of a Gremlin infestation, wouldn't he?

@  OrionPax44 : (21 September 2017 - 11:13 AM)

Well then there's yellowing but isn't that all of them. I like to leave all my TF's in a hot car all day long to let all their joints turn to jelly.

@  Telly : (21 September 2017 - 11:12 AM)

what about sunlight??

@  TheMightyMol... : (21 September 2017 - 10:50 AM)

KAIJU NOT FOR SALE

@  Dracula : (21 September 2017 - 10:49 AM)

don't get any water on your trypticon, and don't feed him after midnight.

@  TheMightyMol... : (21 September 2017 - 10:42 AM)

I've had mine for two weeks with no problems. Just don't be a hamfist with it.

@  Paladin : (21 September 2017 - 08:36 AM)

@  Telly : (21 September 2017 - 07:37 AM)

@  Telly : (20 September 2017 - 09:00 PM)

just ordered tr trypticon. should have it monday :)

@  OrionPax44 : (20 September 2017 - 04:57 PM)

@Robowang I have one somewhere and I can send it to you. Don't worry about it. Just let me find it

@  Bass X0 : (20 September 2017 - 04:43 PM)

Sometime last week, I purchased Hasbro Windblade online then a day or two later, Takara Windblade was announced for only £4.99 more making me instantly regret buying Hasbro's Windblade. Guess I'll be giving Hasbro Windblade to my nephew for Christmas then.

@  Shrug : (20 September 2017 - 02:24 PM)

That whole flat-rate shipping thing makes the math easy.

@  Shrug : (20 September 2017 - 02:23 PM)

4 bucks

@  SHIELD Agent 47 : (20 September 2017 - 02:15 PM)

Hmm. How much is shipping from BBTS?

@  NightViper : (20 September 2017 - 02:09 PM)

Set of the four is still $22 at BBTS

@  SHIELD Agent 47 : (20 September 2017 - 02:00 PM)

Ramhorn is currently available from a third party seller via Amazon for $27.

@  Robowang : (20 September 2017 - 11:47 AM)

Anybody have the TR PM OP trading card they don't want? I lost mine! Will pay you for it.

@  PlutoniumBoss : (20 September 2017 - 11:35 AM)

If you don't need her I'll take her off ya.

@  BlackMax : (20 September 2017 - 10:04 AM)

When I get that power-batteryOptimus I swear I will carry it everywhere. It'll be like having a useful tool AND being six years old again all at once.

@  Robowang : (20 September 2017 - 09:58 AM)

I guess he's gone now. Oh well.

@  Robowang : (20 September 2017 - 09:56 AM)

I saw Ramhorn all over ebay for $16 a week ago or so.

@  Shrug : (20 September 2017 - 09:02 AM)

Just ordered Arcee.  I don't need her.  But she's pink.  And a robot.  A combination I love.

@  Darknova4life : (20 September 2017 - 08:57 AM)

@ Robowang, Where is TR Ramhorn available for $16?

@  Shrug : (20 September 2017 - 07:31 AM)

Besides spotty, this is the first time I've consistently seen reships of older waves months after the next 2/3 waves show up.

@  wonko the sane? : (20 September 2017 - 07:29 AM)

No kidding spotty. Haven't seen of the recent waves, and I desperately want a seaspray for my brother.

@  Robowang : (20 September 2017 - 07:05 AM)

Distribution is so spotty these days that I've given in and just started ordering everything. I'm probably going to wind up with a $16 Ramhorn, too.

@  MidnightFox : (19 September 2017 - 08:51 PM)

So they've been out at regular retail hit and miss for awhile.

@  MidnightFox : (19 September 2017 - 08:50 PM)

I picked up Misfire at a Target in Mississippi in mid-August.

@  Shrug : (19 September 2017 - 05:09 PM)

I think so. I checked his post history just now and he mentions buying something in North Carolina

@  SHIELD Agent 47 : (19 September 2017 - 05:04 PM)

A U.S. Walmart?

@  Shrug : (19 September 2017 - 04:41 PM)

Saw someone found Misfire's wave at Walmart on Reddit. First normal retail sighting I've heard. I'm more hopeful now.

@  SHIELD Agent 47 : (19 September 2017 - 04:04 PM)

I'm praying I will be able to find Misfire and Slugslinger at brick and mortar somehow.

@  Xellos : (19 September 2017 - 03:22 PM)

Getting the set of 3, myself. Figure I'll keep Hot Rod in package (still my fave character), and give Kup to my nephew to help expand his current fascination with Transformers.

@  Telly : (19 September 2017 - 11:56 AM)

i got slugslinger for $30 from amazon as well. i can imagine thatll be the standard price at most places since theyll jack up the price to cover having all those kup and hot rods sitting in their stores

@  Robowang : (19 September 2017 - 08:16 AM)

Yes, I bought the $30 one on Amazon. I'd rather just pay the $30 than pay $60 and be stuck with an extra Hot Rod and Kup I can't sell.

@  Robowang : (19 September 2017 - 07:34 AM)

Slugslinger, Misfire, and Triggerhappy look amazing together. Best of Titans Return, as far as I'm concerned.

@  Noideaforaname : (18 September 2017 - 11:32 PM)

gads, why is this site so bad at loading at times?

@  Steevy Maximus : (16 September 2017 - 08:29 PM)

Thank you Hasbro for having never reissued the 2011 City Strike Destro figure...already at $32 with a week left.

@  SHIELD Agent 47 : (16 September 2017 - 07:47 PM)

Asking someone which year of "university" they're in seems so much more sophisticated than asking which year of "college" they're in.

@  wonko the sane? : (15 September 2017 - 09:04 PM)

Hooray! It only took 8 years, but laika finally learned to NOT play with the striped kitty!

@  Bass X0 : (15 September 2017 - 04:38 PM)

It was "Take Your Laserbeak To Work Day".... well, for me it was anyway. I was getting bored of being on hold when I made calls, so wanted something to relieve the boredom.

@  TheMightyMol... : (15 September 2017 - 04:25 PM)

Can you hear me now? *CRACK*

@  MEDdMI : (15 September 2017 - 04:25 PM)

Pshaw, internet! Back in my day, we wrote notes, wrapped them around rocks, and threw them at each other's heads!

I feel that the BW theme is a bit too boisterous for the show.

 

If I had to choose themes:

 

Broken Windshields:

 

 

Head Games:

 

not sure

 

Burning Bridges

Micro-Aggresions:

I also have an idea for some voices:

 

All the show characters would be the same

 

Eject I imagine as Keith David.

 

Lio Convoy would be Micheal Dorn.

 

Buzzclaw is Steve Buscemi.

 

Ser-Ket would be Cree Summer.

 

Lord Imperious Delirious would be Anthony Hopkins. I think he could also pull off playing Deluge, as well.

 

B'Boom is Khary Payton.

 

Preditron is Liam Neeson.

 

Wolfang is Adam Harrington.

I'd probably put David on Preditron, not Eject. But that's my Halo influence shining through.

Also, Magmatron would be Steve Blum.

I mostly tried to stick to Ocean Group voice actors (both current and former) since I like the idea of the entire Beast Era as being voiced by the same single talent pool.

 

With the exception of the Car Robots/RiD 2001 guys keeping their original Saban dub voices.

 

Throughout it all, Lio Convoy was David Kaye for me, using a voice more akin to his natural voice.

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.

See, that's just it, though. BWU is far removed from the Beast Era cartoons that it just doesn't really fit to connect it.

So I'm not allowed to hear the same voices just because the setting and circumstances differ? How should those have any effect on the voices sound in my head?

Sorry, bit aggressive wording, there.

 

Personally speaking on a related topic, A Change to the Agenda is probably the most unnecessary piece of fiction in BWU. It has no impact on the main stories aside from Optimus and Megatron, and even then for the former they were already written with Prime in mind. It's an origin story for a universe that doesn't really need an origin, and one that's in a magazine you have to pay money for, while all the prose stories online. And the concept that Megatron gets a worse Cybertron by killing Prime is neat, but could easily been done with a different universe than BWU.

Okay. Story pitch: When the off-world MCSF officers High Beam and Tiger-Track answer a distress call from the stony planet of Quartex, they get more than they bargained for with a shady underworld of rock creatures.

The story name? "Stone Policing".

"Fake News": The state news service, Iacon Communication Service, transitions from a proper news service into a tool of almost pure propaganda. It refuses to report on the dissident Cheetor's grievances against the Builders, and increasingly becomes a personal messenger of the councilors of the Builder Assembly. In response, fed up proto-formers found Radio Free Cybertron.

Great minds really think alike. Today's "Ghost Stories" establishes that IDW Pyra Magna is part of a line of Magnas just like BWU Pyra Magna and Magna Stampede.

Well. BWU treats it more like a family name, while IDW has it as a job title, but... still, it's neat.
(And it's not like other characters' names haven't gone back and forth between titles and names before.)

Hey, here's a question that I'm not sure has been answered.  Or maybe I missed it.

 

What toy represents Ratbat in this universe?  Lio Convoy cuts his arm off in Derailment, and that was the first time I realised he was supposed to be humanoid (I assumed, since he still had mobility like Eject, he was in his cassette body.)

That brings up a question. In this reality, Eject was associated with Blaster, as is to be expected. But he has the TFSS body in the present timeframe. Did he change his body from classic G1 style at some point, or is cassette mode a third, hidden mode, like IDW Scoop's combiner limb mode?

... Well it is a different universe than main IDW, so.
"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."

All the same, I would find it kinda weird if in this continuity there really were separate individuals or planets named Vigilem and Carcer. "Carcer" the pseudonym doesn't even have its own deco to distinguish it.
