@  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.

@  Rycochet : (27 April 2017 - 06:49 PM)

Transformers believe they were created by <X>, others believe they were created by <Y> and/or <Z>. There are lots of theories, disagreements but ultimately nobody knows for sure.

@  Noideaforaname : (27 April 2017 - 05:11 PM)

Squid robits build machines. Machines decide they had enough of that and kicked the squid robits off the planet. Everything's pretty chill for a while until machines get mad for dumb reasons and break the planet. THE END

@  Bass X0 : (27 April 2017 - 04:22 PM)

Primus created Cybertron and The Thirteen. Then later, the Quintessons come to the planet they call Seibertron and use Primus' power; the plasma energy chamber to forge military robots Destrons and consumer robots Cybertrons. The Cybertrons and Destrons rise up and drive the Quintessons away but are unable to live in peace with each other. And so the Cybertron population become the Autobot army and the Destrons become Decepticons, with the Autobots renaming their planet Cybertron. Far far later still, bacteria that was present on the asteroid Primus imprisoned himself within has evolved into organic life within Cybertron...

@  Evac : (27 April 2017 - 03:35 PM)

But aside from the ending Trent and Siph made for them at FunPub, the 3H Wreckers comics kinda sucked.

@  Evac : (27 April 2017 - 03:34 PM)

That's what the 3H Wreckers comics kind of did, actually.

@  wonko the sane? : (27 April 2017 - 03:30 PM)

So, what? The maker of the makers kinda thing?

@  Bass X0 : (27 April 2017 - 02:55 PM)

My fanon is both the Quintesson and Primus origins. They're compatible.

@  Rycochet : (27 April 2017 - 02:37 PM)

I prefer the profile book/movie interpretation of the Quintessons, a race whose entire purpose is to capture and execute those who escape Unicron.

@  Noideaforaname : (27 April 2017 - 02:03 PM)

I like the Quintesson origin partly because it's a twist on the robot revolution cliche, partly because of the irony of a people uniting against their own creators just to fall into endless civil war, and mostly because i just really like the Quintessons themselves.

@  Diecast : (27 April 2017 - 12:03 PM)

I preferred the Primus origin until it became the more common origin, fiction wise.

@  ▲ndrusi : (27 April 2017 - 11:08 AM)

Since the analogy to humans isn't perfect, it could also be interpreted as closer to "maternity ward."

@  Locoman : (27 April 2017 - 11:02 AM)

I think the most unfortunately named Transformer in their society would probably be Hot Spot, which is like having a human named "Placenta."

@  Locoman : (27 April 2017 - 11:02 AM)

Confusing, I bet.

So how long does Barricade get in this new film before he bites it?  10 minutes?  5?

 

I really like this design and hope he has a significant enough role.

While I like the packaging, the "premiere" labeling makes me a bit worried, since the only thing that feels "premiere" is the number of accessories (2x or 4x more than most deluxes). Love the nightstick, and yes, I'd like to finally get a more heroic movie Prowl Remolded from this. All previous Barricades have been too monstrous to really sell as Prowl, but this one could work well.

"Premiere" appears to just be how they're differentiating this from the Generations line, since no lines appear to be taking a break for this one.

I don't think "premiere" in this sense is meaning "premium" or a sort of "platinum" edition, but more like "debut" or "first edition".

Wait, really?

All I'd heard was "VW is named Hooligan (Crowbar's pre-prod name) and looks like they're a Dread".

Also, it's kind of ridiculous that Bumblebee is a straight redeco of the AOE figure, especially considering he's going back to his "original trilogy" robot mode design for TLK.

Interesting, but are all the deluxes going to be boxed? Like, is "premiere" only the first wave, or something pre-wave 1 (they did this with the protoforms in 2007 and BB and Soundwave for ROTF, but they didn't get special packaging)? Curious

I assumed it just meant the reports came from someone who was familiar with the DotM toys, so I'm not exactly holding on for that one either.

I'd put money on "Premier Edition" simply meaning "TLK Generations". I figure it's all an attempt to avoid the situation they had with AOE where you had stuff like Power Battlers and Deluxes being nigh-identical on the shelf.

That's a really good point.  Plus, being in a box makes it look comparable to Star Wars and Marvel's Black Series figures at roughly the same price.

Man, "Crowbar" there looks massively improved, aside from total lack of color.  But considering how crap the original one was, I suppose that wasn't hard.

Yeah Berserker is looks great. Better than Barricade to be honest. I'm digging how dynamic the figures seem, it's clear they have a smaller budget than the ROTF days so the transformations are still simple but they still seem much more elegant than the DOTM and AOE deluxes.

Wait, why are people saying that's Crowbar at all? It's Crankcase. Am I to understand Crankcase is in TLK but called Crowbar? I mean, that makes sense, because it's not like he was called anything onscreen in DOTM, and also that guy is dead, so there can easily be a new guy who looks just like Crankcase but is named Crowbar, but...why?

 

Also: Barricade looks great, I don't understand the black panel in the middle of the hood, and the boxes are totally positioning the Deluxes as the equivalent of Marvel Legends or 6" Star Wars Black Series.

 

PS whoever that Dread is looks great, and although I can't see the guy's page anymore and therefore can't see Bee, is it impossible that Bee shows up in his old body before reformatting in this one, and the AOE redeco is just the First Bee toy?

Yeah, now the kibble folds up, a new faceplate from Shapeways and Barricade will basically be a lovely new mold Generations toy. It doesn't look like a movie toy at all. I like it a lot.

 

The other two reuses from the older lines keep their old aesthetic, and are therefore awful ugly monstrosities.

Oh, huh, yeah, I couldn't compare properly on my phone and for some reason I had it in my head the Crowbar was the only one with double-eyes. But yeah, it absolutely is Crankcase.

and although I can't see the guy's page anymore and therefore can't see Bee, is it impossible that Bee shows up in his old body before reformatting in this one, and the AOE redeco is just the First Bee toy?


They've painted the front end of the new TLK vehicle mode over the AOE vehicle's sculpt, Takara style, so it seems like it's supposed to represent the new design.

That does seem like an odd decision, but I suppose if molds from a few years ago aren't financially viable anymore, maybe it's all they could do...

 

...but in what world does Hasbro not prioritize a new mold for Bumblebee of all characters? There's a new-mold Crankcase right there!
