In my Marvel comic canon the second wave of special teams were handpicked active robots whose experience would theoretically make more stable combiners, the Combaticons came from Cybertron, the Protectobots were imprinted from crystals explaining both Onslauhghts ancestry and First Aid's experience.

How long until IDW puts out an Optimus Pride Month comic?

@  Cyoti : (18 June 2021 - 03:32 PM)

Even with B5, it didn't follow its original 5-year plan. Summaries from the supplementary materials for the scriptbooks demonstrates that was originally planned was very different from the actual product. Sinclair's actor's departure seemingly changed the show to the point that the stuff with the Vorlons/Shadows, the Minbari and the ending were all changed. Mapping out a show years in advance is difficult because of changing bts stuff like writers/actors leaving the show or suddenly having to retool because of ratings/execs. No plan survives intact especially in a chaotic environment of television production.

@  Rycochet : (18 June 2021 - 11:27 AM)

To be like Babylon 5, you need to cram a 2 season story arc into one because you fear being cancelled, then get further seasons you have no more material for. You also need a spinoff which the network heads don't want and do everything in their power to kill it while it's on air.

@  wonko the sane? : (18 June 2021 - 10:33 AM)

The required effort is probably why we don't have babylon 6; TNG.

@  Dekafox : (18 June 2021 - 10:23 AM)

Everyone wants to be like Babylon 5 but no one wants to put in the effort

@  Nevermore : (18 June 2021 - 09:36 AM)

And then, after five years of hosting their own official podcast where they would answer fan questions and always encouraged their audience to pay attention to the mysteries, after the show had ended, they claimed the show was never really about the mysteries, it was all about the characters.

@  Nevermore : (18 June 2021 - 09:34 AM)

What really bugs me with "Lost" is that the producers had willfully negotiated a set end date with the network halfway through season 3 (the show ended with season 6, as planned) specifically so they could plan out the plot for the remainder of the show. Then... the plot wasn't resolved properly.

@  tigerhawk : (18 June 2021 - 04:17 AM)

By then I had lost interest in arc TV shows, I followed a few and got the impression they were just making them up as they went along. Seemed to be a trend starting with new Galactica and Lost though in actuality began with The X Files and has become a trope called 'The Chris Carter Effect'.

@  Nevermore : (18 June 2021 - 02:12 AM)

I think it was season 3 part 1 specifically, since they had two separate plot "arcs" for season 3.

@  Nevermore : (18 June 2021 - 02:11 AM)

They threw everything in there, with no clear story structure, no clear stakes, and characters flip-flopping wherever the episode's writer needed them to go for their half-baked plot.

@  Nevermore : (18 June 2021 - 02:10 AM)

Season 3 was the worst, with a terrible meandering random events plot.

@  tigerhawk : (17 June 2021 - 11:59 PM)

'save the cheerleader' then in season 3 he tears her skull open, scans her power and she simply heals. They didn't think any of it through.

@  Shockwave 75 : (17 June 2021 - 07:04 PM)

Well, you know Hollywood; if something's popular, run it into the ground!

@  Cybersnark : (17 June 2021 - 04:40 PM)

And then there was the Writers' Strike, which isn't the show's fault.

@  Cybersnark : (17 June 2021 - 04:40 PM)

Yeah, Sylar should've been, if not killed off, at least left to rest.

@  Nevermore : (17 June 2021 - 03:43 PM)

It never truly recovered from that.

@  Nevermore : (17 June 2021 - 03:43 PM)

I wish they would do something like that here: but then it would become obvious in which provinces you're getting gouged.

That is indeed a glorious Wreck-gar and it's even nicer knowing I can keep my other half-dozen RTS Junkions on the shelf with him! They're made of junk, of course they all look a little different!

That would be fun, but would probably be tougher to guarantee convertability? It looks like the arms and legs are still on mushroom pegs though, so swapping is still an option just for display purposes.

Grindor and Ravage leak, maybe?

Articulated fingers! And Ravage got some decent poseability. And apparently that grappling hook, too. Neat!

Rusty Blackout color scheme isn't terribly enticing, though. It's amusing for the old Grindor=Blackout fan theories, but this'd been a prime opportunity to come up with something unique, like how Shadow Raider adds some much needed color to the Decepticon ranks.

Man, I wish I'd gotten the Hot Rod that the rest of you seem to have gotten. The one that I got is an overdesigned, badly engineered overpriced mess that Hasbro's current manufacturing processes isn't up to realising.

 

Don't get me wrong, he looks awesome, possibly the best a Hot Rod has ever looked, and his articulation is pretty good. If he were, say, a RED figure, he's be awesome. But he's not, he's a Transformer, and he's bad at that.

I got a crap one that didn't lock up right in vehicle mode. Broke his "pipe-latches" too.

Then I returned it and bought another and he's great.

But yeah, if they release one the same color as the first release of the Hot Rodimus MP, I'll be all over it.

And it seems like we might, given the info we just received.

Slag, we've seen.  I'm going to buy it because the voices that tell me what to do demand I buy any and all Dinobots.

 

Gnaw, looks pretty good.  I've got a couple of the Legends class Sharkticon and the larger Cyberverse version, but this one will be my Sharkticon commander leading the horde.

 

Wreck-Gar, looks fantastic.  Can't wait to get him along with some additional versions as other Junkions.

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'm really impressed at how he turned out!

Slag is really cool but not new. Love the size on that big boy.

Gnaw looks wonderful in Bot mode. The back of the Monster mode seems kind of questionable but the front half is great. Good enough all around. I love Gnaws in general. Will need multiples.

Wreck-Gar looks perfect. Need 2 probably.

Starscream, cool and different enough a deco that I can put him with the Seeker horde and pretend he's not SG or Scremer. "Starcaller" or something.

I will buy the 4k even though I have nothing to play it. (My tv can do it but nothing aI have will play the disk)


-ZacWilliam, Did you notice that the designer said "Perceptor has tank tracks on him BUT WE'LL TALK ABOUT THAT LATER." There's a major hint to a toy we didn't see.

Wreck-Gar looks great.
Gnaw...how did they manage to mess him up so bad? His teeth are the wrong shape, his arms are too far forward, and his legs are waaaay too far back. I'm gonna assume only the lower parts are meant to be the actual beast legs and the thighs/upper robot arms are meant to be ignored. Robot mode looks good, though the face is a bit odd.
Slag (and the rest of the dinobots) are instant purchases.
SG Starscream looks nice in those colors, but I'm tired of that mold.
