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)

I'd be excited if it were within the realm of affordability.

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)

Even we have limits.

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

Good. But let's agree not to do one for Tecumseh.

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)

One of the Walmarts near me has some pegs full of Wave 1 TR deluxes.

No idea of this site's reputability. 

 

Apparently written by Jason Aaron (TFwiki shows no prior TF experience, but I guess he worked on some top Marvel stuff); release date is November 2018. 

 

????????

 

EDIT: The author seems to be convinced the show will take place after Beast Machines, despite featuring mostly first season BW characters and...Magmatron?

 

this is weird

It really seems made-up to me given how the site is set up to make you click through a bunch of pictures.

 

But that is some oddly specific information.

I can't see Hasbro doing any sort of animation that isn't supporting new product, and I can't see them launching yet another new line in competition with RID, Generations, Last Knight, and are new Rescue Bots toys still coming out?

I like that it ends with Magmatron. Like, I'm excited about Magmatron inexplicably being in something in 2018.

 

Nothing about this makes sense, but that includes "making it up in the first place" - this guy certainly seems to understand it poorly enough that I'm sure he's not the origin.

 

Anyway, I really like Jason Aaron, and he's mostly written books about characters I don't care about or actively dislike, so a BW by Aaron would be interesting to me.

"Netflix Beast Wars" is startling but plausible.

"--that's actually a sequel to Beast Machines" is not plausible. At all.

I had to look him up and I noticed he's writing the Star Wars comic I've been reading for two years. I could tell you the names of the writers of every other comic I follow, but I can't remember his name for some reason.

To be fair, that part does seem phrased to be, uh, Gary Commodore's speculation, as opposed to anything coming from his Awesome Inside Source.

Not that this is the best litmus test, but that article is 2 days old, and there's NO mention of this project in Jason Aaron's Twitter feed.  (Usually people are like, "FINALLY I can tell y'all about this thing I'm working on!")

 

It would be nice if Hasbro took advantage of the Netflix model to do stuff targeted to the older fans, but this seems really hard to believe.

Yeah, it would be just really interesting and cool if Hasbro could partner with someone to create a new series, maybe based on existing characters or lines, exclusively for online streaming, and gear it toward adult fans of the franchise to deliver a more mature story in animation form.
