I've been watching clips of the Japanese dub of the Sunbow movie. Comes with added SCREAMS!

But the ugly barnacle realised he would grow up to become a beautiful oyster. Only he was killed before then for being so ugly.

@  Locoman : (29 April 2017 - 09:46 AM)

That didn't help at all!

@  Evac : (29 April 2017 - 09:32 AM)

Once there was an ugly barnacle. He was so ugly, that everyone died! The end.

Sanity is the crutch of a dull mind.

@  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.

Most Armada toys were pretty fun IMO, to be honest. I might be biased because they were part of my childhood (I grew up with BW and the UT), but I love the Mini-Con gimmick. I like the idea of smaller robots attaching to bigger robots and powering them up. It's probably why I like TR way more than CW.

I don't know if it counts, but Titans Return singlehandedly changed my opinion on Headmasters to a very positive one.

Also, every time I buy a CW figure nowadays I believe I'll be bored with it instantly, but damn if Bluestreak and Impactor haven't proven endlessly fun.

I don't get all the dislike for RiD Steeljaw... he's not a favorite from the line but I dig his vehicle mode and the fact that he's a digitigrade wolf in robot mode was one of the niftiest things I'd seen thus far.

I like Demolishor a lot, he's the only Armada figure I think wouldn't be better executed if they did the whole line again now.

As far as the Armada had a couple of good toys at the beginning of the line. Demolisher and Cyclonus had great minicons that really fit into their toy designs.  Later on we go some good to decent toys like Tidalwave, Thrust, and Bendy Prime. For the most part though, the line isn't worth pulling out of the rubbermaid bin.

 

Energon had some great toys that paid homage to G1, like Battle Ravage, Rodimus, Prowl,  INsecticon, starscream, Skyblast, Scorponok, Megatron, Omega Supreme, and the first combiners in years! However, this line introduced me to the Terracon Horde and its leader, Divebomb. Divebomb was the first TF toy that I got that I had no idea how awesome he would be. Definitely one of my favorite toys and one that I think best fits the topic for me.

Armada...wasn't a very good toyline if you like articulation and show-accuracy, but holy hell did it make up for it in sheer fun gimmicks. I'd say the closest to it would be Fast Action Battlers.

I think it's weird that people consider Sideswipe the worst toy because he isn't even the worst "deluxe" Armada Autobot. I don't particularly like him, but I'd rather buy him again than Blurr or Smokescreen.
