I used to rubber-band Hot-Wheels style construction vehicles together and pretend it was Devestator.

@  Bass X0 : (21 October 2020 - 05:26 PM)

When I was about four years old, my parents bought me Bugbite and tried to tell me it was Bumblebee. I was not yet a fan of Transformers, but I knew that wasn't Bumblebee. I didn't even have the real Bumblebee at that time.

@  Maximus Ambus : (21 October 2020 - 01:39 PM)

It would come with two soundtracks: the eighties classic and one featuring dubstep and the VAs are popular Youtubers.

I just couldn't think of worse music than disco...

@  NotVeryKnightly : (21 October 2020 - 11:35 AM)

What were you trying to imply with the mocking sarcasm, though? Nobody suggested that '80s music was any more "of it's time" than '70s music.

@  wonko the sane? : (21 October 2020 - 11:18 AM)

I said that disco wouldn't fare much better with the same context: media is property of it's time; biases, culture and limitations are all inherent in that. Some stuff can be brought forward because of an inherently timeless nature or the simplicity with which it was made but lots of media is a time capsule of the period of when it was made.

@  NotVeryKnightly : (21 October 2020 - 08:46 AM)

I'm not sure what you're trying to imply, or what you even think I said.

@  wonko the sane? : (21 October 2020 - 08:11 AM)

Yeah, cause disco would make the transition so much better...

@  NotVeryKnightly : (21 October 2020 - 07:17 AM)

I feel the '80s music would be jarring when running over current-day CGI instead of well, '80s visuals.

@  Maximus Ambus : (21 October 2020 - 05:39 AM)

Not a remake, reanimated scene for scene, like that fan vid titled they were always real to me.

@  TheMightyMol... : (21 October 2020 - 04:37 AM)

Because we need more remakes these days.

@  Demovere Xeno : (19 October 2020 - 10:36 PM)

@Maximus: I paired the Battle Patrol with Ironworks and they look good together, though the Off Road Patrol would probably fit best as vehicles you're likely to find at a construction site.

@  ZakuConvoy : (19 October 2020 - 09:39 PM)

@  Steevy Maximus : (19 October 2020 - 04:09 AM)

My local Walmart FINALLY got a restock of Generations during the early September reset and got a big shipment of Earthrise wave 1 (the first I’d seen around here). IF, and that’s a big IF, they restock I’m expecting a bunch of wave 3. Or wave 2. But we’ll be skipping one of those waves.

@  Steevy Maximus : (19 October 2020 - 04:08 AM)

@  Steevy Maximus : (19 October 2020 - 04:08 AM)

Brunt barely appeared here at all, wave 3 was pretty much skipped for a big load of wave 4, with Impactor and

@  wonko the sane? : (18 October 2020 - 10:13 PM)

Brunt is shelfwarming around me. One walmart moved the whole lot of them off to a side shelf, but couldn't be added to liquidate them.

@  unluckiness : (18 October 2020 - 09:01 PM)

Ironworks is a plague. No idea if it was overproduced or if nobody wants it but thing's clogging shelves.

@  Tm_Silverclaw : (18 October 2020 - 04:23 PM)

@  TheMightyMol... : (18 October 2020 - 10:29 AM)

I mostly just see walls of Ironworks. And the occassional Siege Hound.

@  Paladin : (18 October 2020 - 08:44 AM)

@  Nevermore : (18 October 2020 - 08:40 AM)

My local Symths is still chock full of Earthrise wave 1.

@  wonko the sane? : (18 October 2020 - 08:24 AM)

Yup, generally so much they don't bother with any other waves as the existing stock doesn't sell out.

@  Nevermore : (18 October 2020 - 07:56 AM)

All the damn time.

@  Nevermore : (18 October 2020 - 07:56 AM)

If there's anything there's going to be plenty of stock, it's wave 1.

@  Nevermore : (18 October 2020 - 07:56 AM)

I'm really not worried about wave 1 of a new line EVER.

@  wonko the sane? : (18 October 2020 - 07:47 AM)

At least you got listings for kingdom. walmart canada won't list them until they're actually in stock and that could very well never happen. I'm gonna get mine from BBTS cause I'm not missing out on the maximals.

@  Nevermore : (18 October 2020 - 07:32 AM)

And I don't buy the "they all sold out" explanation. The Kingdom figures are still listed.

@  Nevermore : (18 October 2020 - 07:32 AM)

I don't see any of Friday's reveals at Walmart.

@  Nevermore : (18 October 2020 - 07:23 AM)

There's a difference between "sold out" and "no trace of a listing".

@  Nevermore : (18 October 2020 - 07:23 AM)

There is still a listing for the scalped and sold out Walmart exclusive limited edition version of Gigawatt.

@  Nevermore : (18 October 2020 - 07:22 AM)

But there should still be a listing.

@  Tm_Silverclaw : (18 October 2020 - 06:30 AM)

Probably got scalped and sold out in seconds.

@  Nevermore : (18 October 2020 - 04:10 AM)

And I don't see links anywhere either.

@  Nevermore : (18 October 2020 - 04:10 AM)

So did Walmart somehow fail put up the Headmasters preorders as promised by Hasbro, or have the listings been taken down again? I cannot find them.

Hey all. This is a (much belated) thread for your Transformers fiction links, be it your fanfic, a fic you found you liked, a fancomic, or even just bios and headcanons for toy-only characters. Ultimately, it can be whatever you want it to be. There are a few guidelines, though. 

 

The rules:

  • No sexually explicit content.
  • No gore and general excessive 18+ness. 
  • No grimfic and badfic parody, we have the Machinima thread for that. 
  • Links and description only - never post the content text itself within the thread. (Character bios are an exception but use spoiler boxes for lengthy ones.)

Otherwise, come, share us your words. = ] 

 

Edit: Older fiction from back in the day can be found in the Chronicles of Cybertron Archive.

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?

Here, let me break this thread in with a bio!

 

Blight

"Why waste your effort with weapons when you can wear something down with poison?"

Strength - 4 | Intelligence - 9 | Speed - 7 | Endurance - 2 | Rank - 4 | Fireblast - 4 | Skill - 10

 

Blight is known for being incredibly weak, possessing mediocre physical ability and even worse stamina. Why then, is this miniature scientist feared, even among Decepticons, who are known for looking down on Mini-Cons as a rule? Because Blight is incredibly, insidiously, impendingly brilliant, and her specialty is developing both toxins and ways to deliver them. Blight is the brains behind the Ransack Team, and while she may be low on the chain of command, it allows her to remain beneath notice. Unfortunately, her favorite test subject is herself, which has left Blight constantly suffering from the debilitating effects of her own creations, but which also makes her something of a walking contaminant.

Hm, in general, I like them, but parts of them feel like... I don't know, overcompensating to be the exact opposite of Megatronia? I mean, there's a lot that's unfortunate about her, but I'm not sure why the equivalents of Moonheart and Lunaclub are not only not sisters, but one of them hates being associated with her in general.

 

That's probably not what you intended, I'm just wondering if that was a factor, because it kind of sticks out to me.

Here's an oldie but a one I like:

At the end of time, Rampage was the last one who was alive. The various godheads had prepared for their personal Ragnaroks, waiting to be reborn. Humanities' gods realized that in the end, despite all their advancements, their worshipers were finally beaten, and hated the last Cybertronian. Primus looked down at his final child of this universe; all he could muster was a sense of sadness. This reality was one of the most violent yet; the brief deaths of Prime and Megatron bringing on one of the most vicious wars, his brothers attack, and seemingly countless more apocalypses.. Was this really worth it? Was putting his children in the universe, watching so much destruction and terror, and with their only real reason behind existing being chess pieces in a game between order and Chaos. Still, despite all that, he saw their potential. In his final child here, someone who was called epithets like "monster" and "unnatural," ended up saving his children from themselves, and would eventually lead them into brave new worlds. Primus sense his brothers and sisters readying. He took one last look, and gave a brief smile. Perhaps they were a flawed and violent race. But he knew their would always be ones with great potential for good.
As the universe contracted, even Rampage's spark finally gave out. In the final seconds, all that remained was one ember, which became a spec in the void. Trillions of years passed. The spec started to build up, and explode. A new universe was born.
Stars and planets formed. Asteroids collided. Organisms evolved. And life went on.
On a familiar planet, continents make familiar shapes. Weather pasterns twirl all around the planets sky, animals run on the evolutionary planes until the first spark of sentience occurs, and empires rise and fall. And in the year 1984, in ever familiar New York City, a man pics up a phone in his office.
"Hey, Bob, it's Jim. Got a job from Hasbro that no one else is willing to do that needs done before Thanksgiving. You think you're up for the task?"

Okay, let's post some actual fan-fics here:

 

Link Up Me Hearties, Yo Ho!

Series: RID 2001

Summary: Feeling his place in the Predacon chain of command threatened, Sky-Byte contacts an old friend for help in taking Scourge and the Commandos down a peg. However, just how dangerous will this Halfshell and his crew be towards the Decepticons?

Notes: This is a story I wrote for a commission. It features an RiD 01 version of the BW2 Seacons.

 

Illuminations

Series: Various

Summary: A catch-all for short stories and explorations of different characters and different corners of the Transformers universe.

  • Replacement - Breakdown confronts the newest member of the Stunticons about things that are a little too familiar. (G1, Breakdown, Offroad)
  • The Esteemed - A Predacon supermodel takes issue with what an editorial has to say about him. (BW, Injector, Archadis)
  • Endless Skies - After the defeat of Galvatron and the closing of the black hole, an unlikely group of Mini-Cons find each other, and together find an appreciation for the wider world beyond them. (Cybertron, post-series, Clear Skies Mini-Con team)

Our needs include freedom from abuse, violence, and mistreatment, the right to autonomy and self-direction, the right to represent ourselves, equal opportunity for education and employment, the right to accommodation, and societal inclusion and acceptance.
