instead of blackjack, we have dice rolls in the RP and there was an actual card game in another thread.

@  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.

@  Evac : (27 April 2017 - 09:34 PM)

@  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.

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!

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

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.
