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)

Season 1 was good until the finale.

@  Paladin : (17 June 2021 - 09:37 AM)

Thanks to Earthrise I can recreate the end of Return of Optimus Prime part 1.

@  wonko the sane? : (16 June 2021 - 11:19 AM)

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

At last! Our first glimpses of MP Raiden and MP Jetfire (here called Jetfire rather than "Skyfire" despite the latter being the name used when we first heard about it, and it's what he was called in the cartoon so it would make the most sense to use that name for this release, but I digress. We'll just have to wait and see which name is used in the final release).

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.

They're the same height. Maybe the photographer just had MP-10 more readily on-hand than MP-44.

Raiden will cost as much as Unicron won't he?

 

And Sky/Jetfire will probably be up there too. I suspect I'm going to be quite content with my Fans Toys version.

I'm expecting it to be an upsized and tweaked Siege version, like how a lot of the WFC line has been downsized and tweaked versions of MPs.  Same idea, but in reverse.

Its gotta be $400+

While it will likely be better in some way I cant imagine itll justify the $300+ over the Commander.

In Generations 2021 Mook the Masterpiece design mentions that MP Skyfire has been in development since MP Convoy ver 3.0. He got pushed back as a result of the Siege version. Helps explain why MP Convoy ver 2.0 is in the photo.

Does it say which name they are going to use? Jetfire or Skyfire? Both have been used in assorted interviews and previews for the figure.

My Siege Jetfire finally came in today. Hes like looking at the animation come to life on my desk.

I know I already said it but what could MP Sky/Jetfire possibly do better? Im blown away by this toy.

It could have a flatter less detailed look that supposedly is like the cartoon while having a lot more complex transformation to turn the entire robot inside out like a jet-Popple that you are afraid to actually try, due to defective ratchets being revealed on YouTube the week before you get it that cause it to self-destruct if you think about opening it.  Seriously, CONTEMPLATING the action is what triggers the self-destruct sequence, so it's vitally important to never imagine the process.

The real reason was revealed. Initial work on MP Jetfire / Skyfire began a while ago and was out on hold (as it were) once the Siege one became a reality.

Do you mean that it's just an old photo that they didn't bother updating? When they started work on Jetfire doesn't really say much about the photo specifically.

I believe that is the case. Could also be they made 10,000 versions of MP-10 and he remains more familiar in most people's minds.
