When The Revolution Comes, They'll Be The First Against The Wall-Mart

@  D Buster Prime : (26 July 2017 - 06:20 PM)

Wal-Mart? More like Off The Wall-Mart! Amiright?! *cries over canceled preorder*

@  TM2-Megatron : (26 July 2017 - 05:39 PM)

And the Walmart debacle has no doubt pissed off a whole lot of people. What should be fun is turned into a harrowing experience by these kind of pathetic sales tactics

@  TM2-Megatron : (26 July 2017 - 05:38 PM)

Nintendo is really starting to push fans' patience with this SNES classic thing. Why are preorders open someplaces overseas but not in North America?

@  Msol : (26 July 2017 - 05:03 PM)

Well anywho it's out in Canada and I grabbed mine. I couldn't find a thread so just as a warning: watch out when flipping the head out -- I scratched the paint off a bit while doing so. Very little clearance!

@  Msol : (26 July 2017 - 05:01 PM)

Is MPM-3 Bumblebee out in the US yet?

@  Daith : (26 July 2017 - 03:40 PM)

So all of us who thought we had our SNES Classic lined up friday night through Walmart.com just got flipped the bird.

@  Evac : (26 July 2017 - 08:51 AM)

Same.

@  MEDdMI : (26 July 2017 - 05:15 AM)

I just hate Facebook.

@  Confuzor : (26 July 2017 - 01:25 AM)

I hate when follow a link to an article from Facebook it has all this extra junk in the address box, so if I want to copy/paste to send to my friends via text, I have to go hunt down the "permalink" so it's a more manageable size

@  SHIELD Agent 47 : (24 July 2017 - 08:52 PM)

*sigh* Yup.

@  Foffy : (24 July 2017 - 06:16 PM)

That's the exact opposite of what Facebook wants to happen, though. They're hoping you get sucked in by other content and end up spending more time on Facebook and/or making an account.

@  SHIELD Agent 47 : (24 July 2017 - 04:02 PM)

I hate that these days when you use a permalink to a Facebook post, the rest of the page's material still shows up below. Like, WTF, I only want the old way of seeing the post and nothing else!

@  Benbot : (24 July 2017 - 01:34 PM)

I call bullshit on that

@  MEDdMI : (24 July 2017 - 01:08 PM)

Read the article. Apparently too many comics sets off the machines due to the glossy pages messing up the X-ray

@  Benbot : (24 July 2017 - 01:03 PM)

what possible justification could they have to ban books containing drawings?

@  MEDdMI : (24 July 2017 - 12:56 PM)

Per the article, United appears to be the only airline, but there might be others.

@  Dracula : (24 July 2017 - 12:48 PM)

Like anyone needed another reason not to fly United

@  Evac : (24 July 2017 - 12:46 PM)

No, apparently just United did.

@  Paladin : (24 July 2017 - 12:22 PM)

@  Paladin : (24 July 2017 - 10:16 AM)

depends what appendage its used on.

@  Benbot : (24 July 2017 - 10:15 AM)

I'm something something years old and I have actually never shaved with anything other than electric

@  Benbot : (24 July 2017 - 10:15 AM)

is it worth the trouble?

@  Benbot : (24 July 2017 - 10:15 AM)

Why does a safety razor give a closer shave than an electric razor?

@  RichardT1977 : (24 July 2017 - 10:08 AM)

Nevermore That was Shrapnel, not Bombshell.

@  ▲ndrusi : (24 July 2017 - 10:07 AM)

Deluxe Sludge alone is enough that I probably won't have to eat anything until 2025.

@  ▲ndrusi : (24 July 2017 - 10:06 AM)

I don't know about Paladin, but I personally am fueled by the rage of fans who have a very specific idea of what a Transformers toyline should be.

@  NotVeryKnightly : (24 July 2017 - 09:23 AM)

What do you mean too good? I don't recall lots of Micromaster updates.

@  Paladin : (24 July 2017 - 09:06 AM)

i remain unconvinced. "if it sounds too good to be true, it usually is."

@  General Tekno : (24 July 2017 - 08:58 AM)

yep - especially given that sure is one hyper easy forensic trail to find everyone involved in the leak

@  Fear or Courage : (24 July 2017 - 08:41 AM)

At least in Canada, they have excellent customer service.

@  Maruten : (23 July 2017 - 11:33 PM)

I've ordered from them several times with no problems.

@  Telly : (23 July 2017 - 11:19 PM)

@  SHIELD Agent 47 : (23 July 2017 - 11:16 PM)

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.
