Is Skyrim worth playing in 2020?

@  Paladin : (28 February 2020 - 07:45 AM)

when you use the character as a header image for a frontpage story, i think you lose the right to complain about anyone else "spoiling things."

@  Nevermore : (28 February 2020 - 04:45 AM)

Did I say that? I must have been joking.

@  Sabrblade : (27 February 2020 - 11:46 PM)

And you say you have no sense of humor, Nevermore. ;)

@  Nevermore : (27 February 2020 - 09:07 PM)

Gonzo, start a thread in the main "Transformers Discussion" forum with that information in the title instead.

@  Sabrblade : (27 February 2020 - 08:33 PM)

Gonzo, please don't go spoiling things like that in the chat box.

@  Benbot : (27 February 2020 - 10:24 AM)

I really don't like that guy. Show the toys, not your face. I'm tired of looking at him.

Toy Galaxy is excellent.

@  CORVUS : (27 February 2020 - 01:12 AM)

Toy Galaxy is my favorite overall toy-related channel on YouTube.

@  fourteenwings : (26 February 2020 - 11:29 PM)

Last year's coverage via Toy YouTubers was brilliant. However, since YouTube's new (unfortunately necessary) guidelines the companies barely invited any of them back, so all we get is super-popular collector's info.

@  PlutoniumBoss : (26 February 2020 - 09:19 PM)

If it weren't for Toy Galaxy's coverage video, I would not have known about the Defenders of the Earth figures. New toys of Flash Gordon, The Phantom, and Mandrake the Magician? In 2020? I would have said you were smoking something strong.

@  Nevermore : (26 February 2020 - 06:32 PM)

So the question is... has Madagascar closed down all its ports yet?

@  Nevermore : (26 February 2020 - 06:31 PM)

A couple that got infected attended a Carnival event with over 300 people in attendance.

@  Nevermore : (26 February 2020 - 06:25 PM)

So the Corona virus keeps getting closer to where I live. Several confirmed cases in my federal state already.

@  Steevy Maximus : (26 February 2020 - 02:20 PM)

Man, only having collector sites to get Toy Fair news from sucks. Did you know there is a 4" line of kids figures for the new Avengers game coming?

@  Dekafox : (26 February 2020 - 11:54 AM)

Since Omega already exists they could name it Auntie

@  Otaku : (26 February 2020 - 10:07 AM)

Oh, and one last Titan,provided we can fudge things a bit to include a character from Transformers: Animated; how about something at least resembling TF:A Omega Supreme?

@  Otaku : (26 February 2020 - 10:05 AM)

How about they find a way to make a mold they can use for both Broadside and Tidal Wave?

@  Maximus Ambus : (26 February 2020 - 02:13 AM)

Optimus Maximus, the mysterious titan of the Arisen, also Iaconus from Cyberverse.

@  TriBlurr : (25 February 2020 - 12:41 AM)

I think the only other Titan class character that would interest me after Scoponok would be Tidal Wave

@  TheMightyMol... : (24 February 2020 - 07:34 PM)

A Titan would have more room for other toys to hang out, assuming one has the table space for it.

@  Darth Gonzo : (24 February 2020 - 03:32 PM)

Play wise which would be better a Commander Class Aircraft Carrier Mode Broadside or a Titan Class Aircraft Carrier Mode Broadside?

@  PlutoniumBoss : (24 February 2020 - 01:53 PM)

I'd be interested in a deluxe or voyager Fort Max in Armada flashback red-and-green.

@  TheMightyMol... : (24 February 2020 - 10:49 AM)

I'd honestly be more interested in Commander-class Scorponok and Fort Max. I don't have the space for Titans.

@  Maximus Ambus : (24 February 2020 - 10:44 AM)

Make Commander class city bots to annoy collectors too

@  TheMightyMol... : (24 February 2020 - 10:43 AM)

Make two Broadsides. One Voyager-sized that only turns into a jet, and one Titan-sized that only turns into an aircraft carrier. Piss off everyone on both sides of the scale.

@  Rodimus Supreme : (24 February 2020 - 10:41 AM)

Since they seem to also go by the oh-so holy cartoon scale thing, he'd probably be a Commander Class figure.

@  wonko the sane? : (24 February 2020 - 10:34 AM)

Broadside is an aircraft carrier. He should probably be metroplex sized.

@  Rodimus Supreme : (24 February 2020 - 10:21 AM)

Broadside's more of a Commander Class.

@  Darth Gonzo : (24 February 2020 - 04:47 AM)

I think Broadside should be the next Titan Class figure.

@  wonko the sane? : (23 February 2020 - 09:38 PM)

I tan nicely! But also have a family history of cancer... so... yeah, pasty for me it is.

@  Otaku : (23 February 2020 - 04:22 PM)

I really do begin to get sunburned after about 5 minutes of direct exposure, nowadays.  Side effect of already being pasty then going on a particular medication.  Yay?

@  TheMightyMol... : (23 February 2020 - 01:36 PM)

It makes me burn. Accursed daystar.

@  Maximus Ambus : (23 February 2020 - 01:33 PM)

Sunshine on my shoulders makes me happy....

@  Vexwing : (22 February 2020 - 03:26 AM)

I watched L.I.L.Y.Cat on there a while back, it was surprisingly good.

@  Steevy Maximus : (21 February 2020 - 08:47 PM)

@Dekafox, no DTP, but they DO have LILY Cat ;)

@  CORVUS : (21 February 2020 - 08:46 PM)

@  Tm_Silverclaw : (21 February 2020 - 06:42 PM)

Ahh. I remember watching Bubblegum Crisis 2020 or whatever.

@  Dekafox : (21 February 2020 - 06:25 PM)

Next you'll say they have Dominion Tank Police and L.I.L.Y.Cat

@  NotVeryKnightly : (21 February 2020 - 06:06 PM)

Bubblegum Crisis, going by several shouts down.

@  Tm_Silverclaw : (21 February 2020 - 05:38 PM)

Well, that's the thing, isn't it? Potpie is entirely made of things that already exist in the comics and some that started there. There's nowhere to work in any toy designs except by arbitrarily sidegrading people. And I don't know that they're going to demonstrate the patience for that after indulging for T30 and CW but passing for TR. 

 

Any tie-in from the comics is going to be at a conceptual level, not at a "featuring these toys you can find at your local retailer" level.


Shouldn't gravity be doing something?
 
Of course there's a figure of Rodimus as some kind of animal girl. Why would I be surprised by this?

Which, honestly, is fine by me. Generations and CW felt really forced at times in the comics ("Here's Scoop! Starscream takes this weird body form! And so does Jhiaxus for some reason!") I don't know a seamless way to advertise a toy product, but those weren't it.

Oh, sure. I'm just countering the nitpicks to the wonder and glory that it would be if Sakamoto made the only dedicated official fiction to actually feature these toys.

Yeah, IDW did a massive Combiner Wars thing, then hinted that Titans Return might be a thing.


Hmm? IDW Combiner Wars was a six-issue event, IDW Titans Return was a five-issue event, one of which was bumper-length. And it seems pretty clear that TAAO's story where the Titans actually return would've been TR-branded too, if its start hadn't been delayed by SOTW.

I guess CW had a bit more explicit build-up prior to the event proper, but that was helped by the fact that Barber had already been writing about combiners long before the toyline came about.

Yeah, Sentinel Prime had an obscuring armorsuit for no reason whatsoever in the Titans Return arc. Besides that all we had was Sovereign in a temporary bodystyle and Fortress Maximus cheating to get a Titan-sized mecha suit that looked like him.

So did Titans Return? Of the 2016 TR lineup, Sentinel Prime, Alpha Trion and Fortress Maximus toys all get actively pimped (plus you could maybe argue Chromedome, Rewind, Brainstorm, since their toys are all based on IDW designs in the first place). It features a smaller selection of toys than CW though, sure, which is likely because the abandoning of pack-in comics meant there wasn't an obligation to feature every Deluxe figure anymore.

Not by the MTMTE sections, and he does have his toy-specific train mode even in the first part. Also, like... Infinitus.

Even if he's not on-model to it all the time, Sentinel's very presence in the comic is obviously in order to pimp his toy.

What if TakaraTomy will handle their PotP like their 2012-2014 Generations line? Have an original tie-in story like the All Spark manga?

 

Speaking of which, we Anglophones still really need scans of All Spark.

It's probably worth mentioning that the nature of Combiner Wars inherently meant more toys got featured. Not like they were going to include just Silverbolt and Skydive and have them combine into a Superion torso with one arm.

I still really don't see how this is a comparable thing, but okay. Suffice to say that a Legends-style comic featuring the exact likenesses of the entire toy lineup would be far more significant "exposure".

True. And the PotP fan poll was always recognized as a thing that was likely to have an impact on the IDW story.
