Batmans is more fun to say but i think, sadly, its batmen

@  Bass X0 : (23 February 2017 - 02:36 PM)

Is the plural of Batman Batmans or Batmen?

@  Vexwing : (23 February 2017 - 12:32 PM)

Anyone else excited about that Prime 1 Studio BW Megatron? It looks amazing

@  unitremover : (22 February 2017 - 09:36 PM)

I haven't been up there in a while but one of the Walmarts around here still has AOE deluxes out. Some of the CVSs do too.

@  wonko the sane? : (22 February 2017 - 09:34 PM)

It's been the same thing in local stores for ages up here.

@  BlackMax : (22 February 2017 - 09:33 PM)

One near me is the same - I swear they have over forty Deluxes there, all from many months ago.

@  Telly : (22 February 2017 - 07:43 PM)

my walmart finally filled those empty tr pegs. and of course its a mix of waves one and 2 (wave 1.5?)

@  Steevy Maximus : (22 February 2017 - 07:10 PM)

My Walmart had a Generations Rattrap hanging for the past 2 and a half years, and in trying to clearance it, inadvertently marked down the entire Generations Deluxe assortment.

@  Steevy Maximus : (22 February 2017 - 07:09 PM)

A shelf warmer's ultimate revenge: being around long enough that in trying to clearance it...the store marks down the entire SKU!

@  NotVeryKnightly : (22 February 2017 - 07:59 AM)

Eh, he would've gotten beaten up if the government sent just about anyone.

@  Pennpenn : (22 February 2017 - 07:56 AM)

Regardless, literally everything I've ever seen (and a lot on tfwiki) attributes Megatron's slide into violence to Whirl beating him up while in custody. Maybe not like flicking a switch but Megatron's line "You made me. You taught me words were weightless without force" kinda spells it out.

@  NotVeryKnightly : (22 February 2017 - 07:38 AM)

I'm not sure if there even was a specific turning point, but he didn't seem kill happy yet when he was with Terminus, and that was after Whirl beating him up.

@  NotVeryKnightly : (22 February 2017 - 07:24 AM)

It was also before any sort of uprising or him actually doing much of anything.

@  Pennpenn : (22 February 2017 - 07:20 AM)

I mean, the whole thing didn't start as "the great war". It was an uprising that eventually morphed into a the war.

@  Pennpenn : (22 February 2017 - 07:17 AM)

Yeah, of course it's before the war, Whirl beating Megatron while he was in custody was the tipping point that made Megatron turn violent.

@  RC85747 : (22 February 2017 - 07:08 AM)

hascon

@  NotVeryKnightly : (22 February 2017 - 05:12 AM)

But the thing with Whirl was before he started the war.

@  Pennpenn : (22 February 2017 - 03:28 AM)

Like so many awful things in that universe, it's basically Whirl's fault.

@  Telly : (22 February 2017 - 12:51 AM)

for about 10 minutes. then he got all kill happy

@  SHIELD Agent 47 : (21 February 2017 - 10:27 PM)

Wouldn't IDW Megatron kind of count since his main reason for instigating the Great War was to overthrow the Functionist social order?

@  Black Hat : (21 February 2017 - 04:05 PM)

(I haven't read IDW at all please don't sue me)

@  Black Hat : (21 February 2017 - 04:04 PM)

Tyrest? He was chief justice, even :p

@  Bass X0 : (21 February 2017 - 03:24 PM)

I kinda want an Autobot to have the function of "Social Justice Warrior".

@  TheMightyMol... : (21 February 2017 - 12:20 PM)

@  Robowang : (21 February 2017 - 12:18 PM)

I'm kinda disappointed how they messed up Legion Bisk's hands so that his front wheels can't roll.

@  RichardT1977 : (19 February 2017 - 12:45 AM)

Expected! And probably really damn gorgeous. 

 

Now I need to decide if TFSS Scourge is my buddy-commander for Baldigus or if I need this. I guess it'll depend on Diac - If he's named/decoed as Junko or Kelly... no resistance!

I still want a version of Diac to get painted like Sparkplug (the human not the robot).

Tempting, but between price/availability and the need to prioritize which version of a mold to get, this is likely not an option for me. I'll be content with TFSS Scourge.

You know what this means, guys? We might be getting even more of the post-Car Robots Gelshark/Black Convoy/Baldigus storyline that began in Gelshark's Legends comic, continued in Black Convoy's previous Legends comic, and carried over into Baldigus's two Unite Warriors online comics. :love

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.

I wonder, since the toy is a Headmaster and since Black Convoy once tried to control a Headmaster, if this toy might fictionally represent Black Convoy creating his own Head On System to put himself on more even footing with Brave Maximus.

That's not how JG1 headmasters work.

Also, why would Kelly ever work for Scourge?

Maybe not ACTUALLY her, but something that represents the part of her duplicated inside of him. She was driving the big rig that his pod scanned, so he's as much her as he is Megatron and Optimus.

 

It's how he was able to exert whatever limited control he could over Brave Maximus when none of the other Transformers could.

That is a logical prediction.

Say, Sabr, you have recently watched Car Robots, yes? To you does it look like "Brave" and "Brave Maximus" are just Plasma with a changed name, à la the JG1 Headmasters reverse-engineered from them? Or rather are they actually 3 distinct bonded individuals, as the Hasbro-based wiki writeup goes? Or is it too ambiguous to discern given that Brave Maximus only appeared in a few episodes?

On that note, I just realized that Black Convoy and his crew could plausibly go for Brave Maximus in their next story, since Legends and Unite Warriors randomly gave him time-travel capability.

Plasma spoke of himself, Brave, and Cybertron City as three separate things, but of those three, only Plasma seems to be alive when all three are separated. Plasma and Brave together constitute the Head On System, which then unites with Cybertron City to become Brave Maximus. It's more akin to the Japanese take on Headmasters than not, but with each component given its own unique designation, while only Plasma retains some semblance of sentience when each component is not combined together.

 

This was pretty much the same for the English dub, with Plasma being "Cerebros", Brave being "the Emissary", and Brave Maximus being "Fortress Maximus", with the exceptions of the Head On System having no counterpart dub name (and not existing as a concept in the dub) and Cybertron City still being called "Fortress Maximus" regardless of mode.

They may just redeco Black Convoy's head as Gigatron / Devil Gigatron as a way to smuggle him out of prison.
