@  wonko the sane? : (16 August 2018 - 06:36 AM)

That never goes away. I still have little panic attacks when I see water where it's not supposed to be. I've lived through enough leaking roofs, broken pipes and floods to know it could be a very bad sign.

@  SHIELD Agent 47 : (15 August 2018 - 09:20 PM)

Despite my parents explaining that to me when I was a kid, I still half-panic every time I see condensation dripping.

@  Shrug : (15 August 2018 - 08:23 PM)

Yup. If the water happens to be on the left or right of the vehicle, make sure to remember that. That way it's real easy to tell if it's something else dripping.

@  Nevermore : (15 August 2018 - 05:15 PM)

So I checked online and it appears... it's totally normal, that's apparently condensed water from the air conditioning.

@  Nevermore : (15 August 2018 - 05:14 PM)

Phew!" For a moment I thought I was in real trouble because when I arrived at home and drove my car into the garage, there was a trail of large wet spots.

@  wonko the sane? : (15 August 2018 - 08:01 AM)

The showerhead exploded off the pipe this morning. So yeah... think it's going to be a "great" day.

@  Donocropolis : (13 August 2018 - 09:44 PM)

Luckily, it was "Wheel Horse Lawnmower"

@  Donocropolis : (13 August 2018 - 09:44 PM)

I knew that my father was getting old when he finally posted a facebook status that was clearly a search term.

@  The Wadapan : (12 August 2018 - 12:18 PM)

could've been worse then :p

@  SHIELD Agent 47 : (12 August 2018 - 12:03 PM)

So when he tried to pry into his daughter's love life, he ended up posting numerous search terms relating to "hot boy".

@  SHIELD Agent 47 : (12 August 2018 - 12:02 PM)

I once saw this comedy episode wherein a dad mistakenly thought the status bar on Facebook was the search bar.

@  The Wadapan : (12 August 2018 - 11:41 AM)

is cool squawkbox =/= search box

@  Echowarrior : (12 August 2018 - 05:02 AM)

Happy Birthday to Nevermore and Angelus!

@  Waspinator : (11 August 2018 - 04:45 PM)

I like how that game had all kinds of transformation attacks. Some of them may not have made much sense, but they looked cool.

@  TheMightyMol... : (11 August 2018 - 11:33 AM)

Menasor kinda did that in the Devastation video game. He'd split into the Stunticons and run you over.

@  wonko the sane? : (11 August 2018 - 08:04 AM)

Megatron screams "decepticons attack", the constructicons form devastator, who then screams "Multi-vector assault mode" and breaks back into invdividual bots to attack seperately.

@  SHIELD Agent 47 : (10 August 2018 - 11:20 PM)

Imagine: an armada battle between Omega Supreme and Tidal Wave.

@  SHIELD Agent 47 : (10 August 2018 - 11:20 PM)

Some TF creator should apply it to multi-component Transformers.

@  SHIELD Agent 47 : (10 August 2018 - 11:19 PM)

"Multi-vector assault mode" is such a cool term from Star Trek: Voyager.

@  TheMightyMol... : (10 August 2018 - 04:24 PM)

Most things would be pretty cold after two hundred and seventy degrees.

@  RichardT1977 : (10 August 2018 - 02:39 PM)

(Because F = (9C/5) + 32)

@  RichardT1977 : (10 August 2018 - 02:38 PM)

Oh yeah, five times thirty is TWO HUNDRED SEVENTY! My bad...

@  wonko the sane? : (10 August 2018 - 01:15 PM)

Given the weather we've been having this summer, anything under 30 is a friggen god send.

@  NotVeryKnightly : (10 August 2018 - 12:53 PM)

Surely "slightly under 30" doesn't pass for "cold" unless you live in the tropics.

@  wonko the sane? : (10 August 2018 - 12:20 PM)

... or we're finally facing the end game of global warming, but no one will care by then.

@  wonko the sane? : (10 August 2018 - 12:18 PM)

Generally speaking, if the number when referring to temperature is less than 50, you're probably not talking to an american.

@  Benbot : (10 August 2018 - 11:13 AM)

86 F

@  RichardT1977 : (10 August 2018 - 11:07 AM)

(30 C = 68 F)

@  RichardT1977 : (10 August 2018 - 11:06 AM)

And is that Fahrenheit or Celsius?

@  Benbot : (10 August 2018 - 09:13 AM)

What continent are you in?

@  wonko the sane? : (10 August 2018 - 06:41 AM)

oh wow... even with humidity today it won't break 30. It's going to be so... COLD...

@  MEDdMI : (08 August 2018 - 06:58 AM)

@Msol Make sure he shares. My bro hardly ever let me play with his TFs. I even offered to let him play with my dolls/ponies, too.

@  MEDdMI : (08 August 2018 - 06:37 AM)

:p My brother was a bigger pain as a kid. As adults, I'm the bigger pain now.

@  wonko the sane? : (08 August 2018 - 06:31 AM)

Congrats man, and good luck. My personal experience is that little girls are pains in the ass clean through 30.

@  Msol : (07 August 2018 - 10:59 PM)

Yup yup. Now my 2.5yo will need to learn to share all his TFs...

@  MEDdMI : (07 August 2018 - 09:53 PM)

@Msol Really? Congratulations! :)

@  Msol : (07 August 2018 - 08:48 PM)

Ack! We're having a girl!

@  TheMightyMol... : (07 August 2018 - 06:16 PM)

It did include a Transmetal 2 hyena with a giant sawblade in his back.

@  unluckiness : (07 August 2018 - 08:56 AM)

but does it BURN BURN BURN TO THE GROUND?

@  wonko the sane? : (07 August 2018 - 08:01 AM)

Okay, I don't buy doubles and I would have gone after a dozen of those.

@  RichardT1977 : (06 August 2018 - 10:32 PM)

I still think Beast Wars should have included a Transmetal Maximal hyena with a motorcycle-based semi-third mode, of Junkion descent, named Lafftrax

@  Pennpenn : (06 August 2018 - 03:24 AM)

Well if they did the same thing as Roadbattletrapslash (and if they didn't what's the point?) it'd be two new molds, but still.

@  SHIELD Agent 47 : (05 August 2018 - 01:08 PM)

I'm surprised that Hasbro wound up scheduling Frenzy for release in the Bumblebee movie line.

@  TheMightyMol... : (05 August 2018 - 12:50 PM)

Dunno. There's been recent Rewind toys, and Eject is just a quick repaint. Flywheels would mean a whole new mold.

@  Cyoti : (05 August 2018 - 08:24 AM)

Flywheels is probably in the same queue at Hasbro as Eject.

@  TheMightyMol... : (05 August 2018 - 03:22 AM)

Energon Redux.

@  Foffy : (05 August 2018 - 03:15 AM)

Grand Slamwich

@  Pennpenn : (04 August 2018 - 07:51 PM)

So we can get proper Flywheels and maybe Grand Slam? I mean, I'm sure if they did it as a full range we'd have an Optimus in there somewhere (with Roller pants? I dunno).

@  Pennpenn : (04 August 2018 - 07:48 PM)

I'd like to see them do more duocon type toys later on. Sort of like how they did Brainstorm as a Headmaster on his own before releasing an entire range of them.

What are some things or characters that haven't been tackled in IDW in years that you'd like to see come back into the spotlight (or Spotlight, as the case may be) or otherwise addressed?

 

Some of mine-

 

* The Throttlebots.  Where they at?  Does Goldbug know that Bumblebee was biting off his look for awhile there?

 

* For that matter, Sixshot.  What's he been doing?  I assume with the new toy coming, he should be showing up again within the next year or so.

 

* Thunderwing.  What happened to him?  Is he sealed up somewhere on Cybertron?  Is there any chance he can be removed from that shell or revived?

 

* Scourge.  Did he die during Chaos with the rest of the Sweeps?

 

* Banzaitron.  Is he still out there?  What happened to the Decepticon Secret Service?

In time they might address these issues but I also agree Sixshot is likely to make a return appearance because of his new toy, Thunderwing, hopefully when he returns evenly it be epic, I can see the upcoming Black shadow toy being retooled into Thunderwing as well as Overlord, it wouldn't be hard to change Black shadow much, a retool of the chest and a different head and voila, one Thunderwing

I wouldn't be surprised if they brought Bumblebee back by saying Goldbug is an amnesic Bumblebee sent to the past.

 

Sixshot: who knows.

 

Thunderwing: probably dead

 

Scourge: Barber said he died in TF VS Joe's back up pages.

 

Banzai-Tron: The most recent mention of him was in MTMTE, but only that he was responsible for the making of the List or something like that.

Other than whatever happened to Sixshot, the only thing that comes to mind is what the deal was with those Quintesson paintings at the end of Spotlight Wheelie, though it seems more and more like we might be getting some follow up on that soon.

 

I guess also maybe whatever happened to the Magnificence? Something that can answer any and all questions about the universe seems like it should've been used for more than just Hot Rod asking if Doubledealer is a traitor.

Wasn't he dead by the time of Stormbringer, and the shell was basically running on its own?

Where are the Monstructor Six?

 

What's Scorponok up to?

 

How is it that Mirage and/or Ironhide can see the future in visions?

 

Where are Lockdown's Titan Hunters?

 

How is it that Megatron's Decepticons acquired Metroplex's spacebridge tech but Metroplex lived to tell the tale?

John Barber said at one point in a q&a I believe that Sixshot is just living his life in space.

 

Also, while not technically an unanswered question, I would like to see that unreleased Punch series get its due.

How is it that Mirage and/or Ironhide can see the future in visions?

Scorponok got arrested by Magnus at the end of Maximum Dinobots so he's presumably imprisoned. Though Grimlock and Shockwave were arrested alongside him and they both ended up at Garrus 9, so who knows.

 

As for Mirage's visions, didn't Combiner Wars have some sort of handwavy explanation for those? And Ironhide's seem like they could just be chalked up to Vector Sigma-y magic.

There was that flash of memories he had about Megatron rejecting his proposals and such.  No one could detect any activity within his shell after it ran out of Ultra-Energon though.

 

We never found out what happened to Thunderwing after Revelation though.  Furman just kind of off-handedly said he was probably quietly executed...which would imply he was still alive.

Well, we know they were at least back on Cybertron at one point, because Prime got the Skyroller back from them.

It'd be neat if they showed up in OP, not least because a giant orc-man wandering about Earth trying to interact with human-sized stuff has excellent comedy potential.

So what was going on in Prowl's head when he kept calling everyone "Scrapper?"


"He learned, almost too late, that man is a feeling creature and, because of it, the greatest in the universe. He learned, too late for himself, that men have to make their own way, to make their own mistakes. There can't be any gift of perfection from outside ourselves. And, when men seek such perfection, they find there's only death, fire, loss, disillusionment, the end of everything that's gone forward. Men have always sought an end to toil and misery. It can't be given; it has to be achieved. There is hope, but it has to come from inside, from man himself."

If Garnak is on Earth, the next logical step is for him to go team up with D0C, Buster, and Bob.

It's never been made explicit, but I think Scrapper's consciousness was lingering in the Devastator hive-mind.  Or the other five are obsessed with avenging or reviving him, which passed onto Prowl.

 

I'd imagine Barber was (or still is) working towards Scrapper's consciousness possessing Scoop.

Yeah, and setting up the question of how much Optimus is being influenced by the traces of Prowl in his mind. It doesn't seem it was ever about bringing back Scrapper.
