Yikes. Sounds more like GTA.

@  Dracula : (23 March 2017 - 08:42 AM)

Someone drove a car through a crowd of people and then into the front gates of parliament, I think, and stabbed a police officer before being killed by other officers

@  Robowang : (23 March 2017 - 08:10 AM)

I coincidentally watched London Has Fallen yesterday afternoon, heard an offhand remark about a terrorist attack in London on the radio yesterday afternoon, and somehow put the two together in my sleepy haze. I need to read what actually happened.

@  SHIELD Agent 47 : (22 March 2017 - 11:21 PM)

That's relieving to hear.

I didn't know he was meeting the Fantastic Four's enemies.

@  Bass X0 : (22 March 2017 - 12:18 PM)

I might watch Kong: Skrull Island this weekend.

@  ▲ndrusi : (22 March 2017 - 10:48 AM)

(At least I'm assuming it was "instead." I guess I don't know for sure that Eddie Murphy's character wouldn't have been Kirk's love interest.)

@  ▲ndrusi : (22 March 2017 - 10:47 AM)

I dunno about that. Star Trek IV was pretty great but I'm haunted by the knowledge that at one point instead of a love interest it was going to have Eddie Murphy.

@  Paladin : (22 March 2017 - 07:28 AM)

you know a remake/movie's in trouble when adding Eddie Murphy to it might make things BETTER...

@  unluckiness : (22 March 2017 - 06:45 AM)

Is Eddie Murphy still Mushu?

@  MEDdMI : (21 March 2017 - 08:30 PM)

what....? b-but that song's so awesome! *lookd up info* oh, it's just "for now", but could change since it's not planned for release until 2018.

@  Waspinator : (21 March 2017 - 08:22 PM)

Oh wow, you're not kidding: they're actually planning to remake Mulan without the songs. Idiots.

@  NightViper : (21 March 2017 - 01:54 PM)

If they had a sword they would not get bored. They would not get bored, that horrible Horde. They would find a lord - a lord and his ward - and use their sword to slice the lord. Yes slice the lord just like a gourd! Then the ward they turn themselves toward that horrible Horde. That horrible terrible deplorable Mongol Horde. And they would not be bored if they had a sword.

@  Paladin : (21 March 2017 - 01:07 PM)

trying to decide if autocracy was an attempt at an original story or just an excuse to quote the '86 movie for the gajillionth time. time to move on fom it (even if you did have a hand in writing it)!

@  Telly : (20 March 2017 - 04:38 PM)

certainly not! reminds me too much of those tests they made me take when i was a kid. the trauma. the trauma...

plus the -acies have my all time favorite artist on it (thats to be read with the most sarcastic tone possible btw)

@  TheMightyMol... : (20 March 2017 - 03:40 PM)

You're not missing anything. Either in the "quality of the stories themselves" way OR in the "adds to the greater universe" way.

@  Dracula : (20 March 2017 - 03:30 PM)

I still haven't read the -acies despite owning most of them in print...

@  Dracula : (20 March 2017 - 03:29 PM)

I like Origins, I feel like the later stories add to it and make it better than what it was when written.

@  Telly : (20 March 2017 - 02:57 PM)

@jalaguy-well if i get bored with the stories i can always skip them lol

@  TheMightyMol... : (20 March 2017 - 02:53 PM)

Origins felt like it was Megatron telling his own story and leaving out the parts he didn't like.

@  Jalaguy : (20 March 2017 - 02:49 PM)

Origins-and-acies-first reading orders are A Bad Idea.

@  Telly : (20 March 2017 - 02:32 PM)

origin felt like its writer was just waiting for someone to come along and fill in the gaps for him

@  Telly : (20 March 2017 - 02:32 PM)

im currently making my way through autocracy. im trying to read them all in the order on the wiki page; http://tfwiki.net/wi...ontinuity#Media

@  Rycochet : (20 March 2017 - 02:04 PM)

The 'acys have no excuse for their terribleness.

@  Rycochet : (20 March 2017 - 02:04 PM)

Megatron Origin gave us Megatron's lovely locks, so that's something. It wasn't horrible, but being condensed down to four issues really hurt it

Megatron Origin is super disappointing if you go in right after reading Chaos Theory/MtMtE...

@  Telly : (19 March 2017 - 09:34 PM)

just read the megatron origin series. that really shouldve been 6 issues. it was very choppy and some things couldve used some further explaining

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.

Armada was fantastic. Even everyone's favorite "worst toy ever" Sideswipe had an addictive gimmick and cool weapons.

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.
