Ever notice Kath SOucie's Janine in the later episodes of Real Ghostbusters sounds like Tara Strong's Sari Sumdac?

@  Maximus Ambus : (28 September 2020 - 02:10 PM)

I wish they were more universal like Beast Wars, Animated or Prime and as professionally done,

@  Maximus Ambus : (28 September 2020 - 02:06 PM)

The Netflix shows are done for adults, the Generation toyline is for adults who grew up with G1.

@  Sabrblade : (28 September 2020 - 12:53 PM)

@  -LittleAutob... : (28 September 2020 - 12:43 PM)

Whatever happened to WFC Earthrise being a kids show X'D

@  wonko the sane? : (28 September 2020 - 11:43 AM)

Cool, my last tablet couldn't run it, and I stopped caring by the time I got the new one. So thanks!

@  Otaku : (28 September 2020 - 11:27 AM)

There are crossover characters, but the amount and distribution... Marvel Vs Capcom this ain't.  If @wonko the sane? my bad!

@  Otaku : (28 September 2020 - 11:21 AM)

I've been playing for *checks account* 1002 days, 23 hours.  So, by 2021, it will have been three years.  I think it takes place in its own continuity, largely inspired by G1 but borrowing from other places.

@  Otaku : (28 September 2020 - 11:19 AM)

@wonko the sane? Can only speak for Earth Wars, but so few they're easy to forget.

@  wonko the sane? : (28 September 2020 - 07:39 AM)

Didn't they already do the across universes thing in that tablet game?

@  Demovere Xeno : (28 September 2020 - 05:30 AM)

Also, make the setting an amalgamation of different Transformers series, rather than based on a specific one. Bring in things like 'Sentinel Major' as the primo Autobot jerk, and sleek car mode Vehicons as the Decepticons' basic grunt.

@  Demovere Xeno : (28 September 2020 - 05:27 AM)

KT just needs to incorporate the vehicle modes into the combat system, like Platinum did for Devastation, so they're for more than just wheeling it across the battlefield. =P

@  Demovere Xeno : (28 September 2020 - 05:25 AM)

Transformers: Warriors of Cybertron! =D

@  Tm_Silverclaw : (28 September 2020 - 05:15 AM)

@  TheMightyMol... : (28 September 2020 - 04:50 AM)

@  Demovere Xeno : (28 September 2020 - 04:40 AM)

Man, I just want another Devastation game... =(

@  NotVeryKnightly : (28 September 2020 - 01:53 AM)

Aren't TFs way more varied than Joes, as far as they'd work in gameplay? Like, Omega Supreme is vastly different from Bumblebee.

@  unluckiness : (27 September 2020 - 10:16 PM)

Hell, ripoff Super Robot Wars withTFs

@  unluckiness : (27 September 2020 - 10:16 PM)

IDK they could make something like FF tactics or Fire Emblem ripoff with Robots and i'd buy it

@  Steevy Maximus : (27 September 2020 - 09:43 PM)

See, I feel GI Joe (with it's varied cast) is a better fit for a strategy game, where as Transformers feels more suited for a shooter.

@  Maruten : (27 September 2020 - 08:28 PM)

I might give them points for making a strategy game if it's actually a good strategy game.

@  wonko the sane? : (27 September 2020 - 07:48 PM)

I mean, points for making a strategy game instead of third person shooter, but: urrrrgggg. Cyberverse.

@  wonko the sane? : (27 September 2020 - 07:47 PM)

A transformers game for the switch? *checks* Urrrggg... cyberverse...

@  Steevy Maximus : (27 September 2020 - 06:28 PM)

October will be a big month for Hasbro fans: Zoids, GI Joe AND Transformers all have brand new console games. All on the Switch at that!

@  wonko the sane? : (27 September 2020 - 09:04 AM)

At least in animated he was more driven than just "loyal bootlick".

@  unluckiness : (27 September 2020 - 08:29 AM)

Oof, That's a huge downgrade

@  Maximus Ambus : (27 September 2020 - 02:35 AM)

After rewatching Animated Sound and Fury, in my head canon Titans Return Soundwave is that Soundwave.

@  wonko the sane? : (26 September 2020 - 04:09 PM)

On an unrelated note: I just got the BBTS email about kingdom pre-orders... and even the stuff I don't want I'm perfectly willing to get if it means I can have the rest of it.

@  wonko the sane? : (26 September 2020 - 04:08 PM)

It's digimon. So first one, then the other.

@  TheMightyMol... : (26 September 2020 - 12:53 PM)

50/50 odds, it's either a helicopter with limbs, or a scantily-clad human with heli blades on their back. If female, 90% odds on the second one.

@  NotVeryKnightly : (26 September 2020 - 12:39 PM)

I read that as "Helicoptermon" and wondered what kind of Digimon that was.

@  Bass X0 : (26 September 2020 - 12:35 PM)

Helicopter-mom, transform!

@  Maximus Ambus : (25 September 2020 - 11:58 PM)

Aw I scratched the hood of my 35th anniversary Bluestreak. Fortunately he's in robot mode a lot.

No decoration could improve the wall more than Knockout himself

@  TheMightyMol... : (25 September 2020 - 05:04 PM)

@  wonko the sane? : (24 September 2020 - 02:15 PM)

@  PlutoniumBoss : (24 September 2020 - 01:05 PM)

Beast Era, a blonde rat called Sunsqueaker.

@  TheMightyMol... : (24 September 2020 - 01:00 PM)

And then Knockout was in the wall again.

@  Sabrblade : (24 September 2020 - 12:53 PM)

Knockout: "Ooh, sorry, Lord Megatron. The correct word was... 'Decepticon'."

@  -LittleAutob... : (24 September 2020 - 11:15 AM)

Knockout: *while doing a crossword puzzle* Lord Megatron, whats a ten letter word for disappointment? | Megatron: ...... Starscream.

@  Maximus Ambus : (23 September 2020 - 01:20 PM)

@Bass X0 Shockwave did it.

@  TheMightyMol... : (23 September 2020 - 11:56 AM)

At least it's not Suntwerker.

@  wonko the sane? : (23 September 2020 - 11:19 AM)

I read that name as "suntweaker" the first time, and was terrified for a moment...

@  Bass X0 : (23 September 2020 - 03:41 AM)

Prowl did nothing wrong.

@  TheMightyMol... : (23 September 2020 - 01:50 AM)

They're cancelling Silver Surfer? That sucks. This is the most I've cared about that character... ever.

Well the impression seems to be more "it's ending" than "it's canceled" both Slott and Allred have said repeatedly that this is the ending they've had in mind since the start and that they've been building to.

-ZacWilliam, it seems very much "we've come to the end of our story" and not something just decided or rushed, so that at least is good.

I believe there is some evidence that there will be other books besides these. I can't remember what it was but I was listening to some Comic Podcast discussing it. These may just be the "Legacy" branded books with others outside that or folded into it later.

-ZacWilliam, maybe, who knows.


I just remembered what it was. The new Runaways is definitely ongoing and part of the Marvel U and not included in the Legacy lists/imprint.

So if there's that then there may be others.

-ZacWilliam, hopefully Unstoppable Wasp cause that book is wonderful and too new to end.

Oh, that's better, then. Still kinda sad, but at the same time, I'd rather more comic stories ended than ran until cancellation.

I bleed inside: you left your knife but I'm still alive

I love the way you watch me die

Life or death a bullet to the chest
I'd do it again...
Just when I think I've cut you out
You come with open arms to drag me down

Putting this here as a place-holder until I see something more substantive. 

 

One of the comic review channels on YouTube is a bit called "Diversity & Comics". I guess I watched so many other review channels that YouTube decided to send some of his videos my way. Lucky me.  :wtf

 

To say he's not a fan of the direction Marvel's been going is an understatement; apparently, it's become a common bit for him to end reviews by simply ripping the comics up to express how upset he is with what he's seeing. 

 

Apparently, some weeks back someone decided to "retaliate" against him dissing Marvel by trying to dox him. 

 

Long story short? 

 

 

He's claiming that Marvel's Heather Antos knows the someone's real identity, and that even if she had no part in it she still knew about it and condoned it; as proof he offers a purported social media interaction between Antos and the alleged doxxer that he sees as Antos celebrating what just happened. He's now saying that given the nature of the situation, he's suing both Antos *and* the alleged doxxer in court over the matter; he claims to have already filed the paperwork and everything. 

 

It's entirely possible that this is a public bluff, a bit of bravado meant to provoke a response. But if he's really going forward with the suit? The little bit of word I'm seeing is that the person he alleges of doxxing him is also suspected in other doxxing attempts, so there might be something there if he and his lawyer can assemble enough pieces. The question is whether or not he's got anything more substantive against Antos. If not, Disney will squash him in court. 

 

That being said though, if this even hits the courts in the first place, we can probably expect more than a bit of speculation and commentary as matters play out. 

 

...And I can only imagine what would happen if he *does* have something substantive.

From your discription that sounds pretty unlikely and much more like an over-histrionic fanboy making up internet drama where he's important than the way reality actually works. I'd be pretty surprised if anything comes of it.

-ZacWilliam, though also from your description there's no way I'm spending my time watching the provided video...

I'm hearing people allege that for some of Marvel's titles, circulation is down to the low thousands. No specific titles have been named by any of the folks doing the allegations, just that physical circulation at least is shockingly low (one person has gone so far as to allege that some titles only get 2,000 physical issues for main runs, not variants). 

 

Has anyone heard any such allegations?

It's not really a matter of "allegations" so much as "easily available evidence".

By the way, if you want a better idea of the problems with the comics industry and Marvel specifically, I would highly recommend Colin Spacetwinks' essays "The Problems with Comics", "Shut the F##k Up, Marvel", and "Comics and Cowardice".

 

It'll sure as hell give you a deeper understanding than the likes of that D&C chump.

You know it's easy to take claims of "I've heard from people I won't name or specify" badly. Especially when it ends with "has anyone heard" rather than asking about verification or proof.

I'm happy I wasn't the only one who read that like that. 

 

 

 

Marvel keeps ending the comics I read, so I'm not buying single issues anymore .. there's no point. If their "ongoings" only last long enough to 'surprisingly' fit nicely into one or 2 trades volumes... well I can just wait to get those -since that's obviously the format they want me to buy.

Isn't it more plausible that they are cancelling their books at the 2 trade mark because the ongoing sales are so low that they can't justify producing it anymore?

That's what I'm thinking: for some titles, they're *dragging them out* to make sure that there are enough issues to fit a trade. 

 

I mean, it wasn't that long ago they cancelled that controversial Black Panther title after issue 2 but promised that it would run through issue 6. It could be that 3 - 6 were already in the works, but it also could be that they needed a full six issues for a profitable TPB.
