Not even head, just a faceeven

@  TheMightyMol... : (25 November 2020 - 12:58 PM)

Just stick a Megatron head on Optimal Optimus.

@  Sabrblade : (25 November 2020 - 12:46 PM)

There was also an evil-looking black and gray redeco of the RobotMasters toy

@  Arazyr : (25 November 2020 - 11:54 AM)

That's KIND-OF what I consider the Throne of the Primes Primal to be...

@  wonko the sane? : (25 November 2020 - 11:16 AM)

I would buy the hell out a nemesis primal...

@  Bass X0 : (25 November 2020 - 11:15 AM)

I'm surprised there's not been a Nemesis Primal given all the Nemesis Primes.

@  unluckiness : (23 November 2020 - 03:17 AM)

The real Drifts were the Windblades we made along the way

@  PlutoniumBoss : (23 November 2020 - 02:25 AM)

Drift-kun 2 Electric Boobylube

@  ▲ndrusi : (22 November 2020 - 11:36 PM)

I'm pretty sure Drift 2 was Empire of Stone.

@  Sabrblade : (22 November 2020 - 10:06 PM)

I thought people said Prime Wheeljack was Drift 2.

@  Maximus Ambus : (22 November 2020 - 03:51 PM)

Windblade was Drift.2.

@  TheMightyMol... : (22 November 2020 - 02:44 PM)

Drift with boobs.

@  Rycochet : (22 November 2020 - 11:50 AM)

I can't imagine a live action movie version of Windblade being all that different from Drift. Not my thing, but not the worst thing I've ever seen.

@  Bass X0 : (22 November 2020 - 09:54 AM)

The thought of Movie aesthetic Windblade makes me feel sick.

@  NotVeryKnightly : (22 November 2020 - 08:47 AM)

Though, the fact that Japanese people would pay for Windblade toys in the $30-40 range doesn't mean they'd pay however much MPs are going for now.

@  NotVeryKnightly : (22 November 2020 - 08:44 AM)

Back when I made a habit of checking Mandarake for pre-owned TFs, Windblade's toys went for surprisingly high prices. By which I mean not lower than the original price.

@  Maximus Ambus : (22 November 2020 - 08:15 AM)

If she's in the next movie you might get her.

@  unluckiness : (22 November 2020 - 07:58 AM)

Japan didn't get most of the IDW comics and are the target market for MP. They basically know windblade from a few crappy pack-in comics and a show that wasn't particularly popular there. Unless they start cranking out Cyberverse MPs, it's not very likely.

@  TheMightyMol... : (22 November 2020 - 04:24 AM)

Again, depends if she's popular enough in Japan to warrant it. Our view of which characters are popular is not the same as Takara's.

@  Bass X0 : (22 November 2020 - 01:53 AM)

So characters like Windblade then.

@  TheMightyMol... : (21 November 2020 - 07:19 PM)

They're complicated and expensive to design. By necessity, they're gonna be restricted to well-known characters who are more likely to sell.

@  Bass X0 : (21 November 2020 - 07:05 PM)

I don’t think Masterpiece toys should be restricted to only show characters.

@  Rycochet : (21 November 2020 - 03:09 PM)

If she wasn't in the Sunbow cartoon, Live Action movie or Beast Wars and can't be repainted from someone else, she's not getting an MP.

@  wonko the sane? : (21 November 2020 - 12:44 PM)

They'll make their money back if they include the metal thong...

@  TheMightyMol... : (21 November 2020 - 12:29 PM)

Is she popular enough in Japan that Takara would even try?

@  Paladin : (21 November 2020 - 11:23 AM)

depends. will that one also have a giant metal thong?

@  Bass X0 : (21 November 2020 - 11:10 AM)

Should there be a Masterpiece Windblade?

@  -LittleAutob... : (20 November 2020 - 12:46 PM)

EIGHT WORDS! THATS A RECORD! XD

@  wonko the sane? : (20 November 2020 - 09:08 AM)

So you were hired by a middle easterner! AHA!

@  ▲ndrusi : (19 November 2020 - 11:45 PM)

that's eight words

@  Bass X0 : (19 November 2020 - 03:56 PM)

"I only want to hear one word from you... The name of the guy who hired ya!"

@  Maximus Ambus : (19 November 2020 - 12:41 PM)

It's great how they reference G1 concepts like this one features the harmony from the episode Carnage in C Minor and and Slugslingers featured anti electrons from Grimlocks New Brain.

@  Steevy Maximus : (18 November 2020 - 10:01 PM)

Or at least those little story blurbs like Beast Hunters had. Especially for stuff like Selects which tend to exist in their own little side world

@  Maximus Ambus : (17 November 2020 - 04:03 PM)

I got me Legends Soundwave, Be cool if the next Generations toyline had a mini comic with the instructions.

@  Maximus Ambus : (16 November 2020 - 03:42 AM)

Aw no unusual activity on my Paypal Ebay, Amazon and Netflix account in one day! All I have to do it verify on those E-Mails and I'm all set..... wait a mo, I'm not on Netflix!

@  Tm_Silverclaw : (14 November 2020 - 11:56 PM)

I swear though.. The idea of "Catch up" is stupid.

@  TM2-Megatron : (14 November 2020 - 11:25 PM)

That's irritating, but it sounds par for the course with new hardware release. Within a year, there'll probably be some good stuff out there that does it all.

@  Tm_Silverclaw : (14 November 2020 - 11:23 PM)

4K/HDR switches are.. iffy.. Because most of them can't do 4K and HDR at the same time.. Or can't do 120hz... and all sorts of things the new TVs have built in, and the new consoles use...

@  TM2-Megatron : (14 November 2020 - 11:18 PM)

Maybe now that the PS5's made the whole 4K thing a little more mainstream, the hardware will start becoming more common. I know that's one of the hopes the physical media community has for the 100GB discs the PS5 is going to be using. Prior to this, they were very expensive tor replicate compared to a regular blu-ray and not used very often

@  TM2-Megatron : (14 November 2020 - 11:17 PM)

Up to now, there really haven't been a whole lot of 4K disc players to choose from... Samsung stopped making them altogether when they couldn't compete with the others, so your main choices are a few models of Panasonic or Sony

@  TM2-Megatron : (14 November 2020 - 11:14 PM)

Is there no such thing as a 4K/HDR switch yet?

@  Tm_Silverclaw : (14 November 2020 - 10:10 PM)

Which is fine.. But that still doesn't explain why they arn't putting out up to date HDMI switch boxes to get.. more money.

@  TM2-Megatron : (14 November 2020 - 09:59 PM)

My only TV with a respectable number of ports is my OLED 4K/3D, which has 4 HDMI, 2 USB 2.0s, 1 USB 3.0 and some weird proprietary thing that acts as both component and composite, depending on what you need. But it retailed for $10k when it first came out (I bought it 14 months later for less than half that). THey're going to get as many corners on less expensive sets as they can, which usually means only providing 2 HDMIs.

@  TM2-Megatron : (14 November 2020 - 09:55 PM)

I mean, there are some decent ones for under a grand. But yeah, I imagine that's what they're thinking. Most people I know, unless they're film or A/V aficionados, all they've got hooked up to their TV is a digital cable receiver and perhaps a game console and dated DVD player

@  Tm_Silverclaw : (14 November 2020 - 09:45 PM)

TM2-Megatron... If that is their assumptions.. That is one of the stupidest way to think.. Especially since Multichannel receivers way to fricken expensive for that. 3000 is way to expensive.

@  TM2-Megatron : (14 November 2020 - 09:11 PM)

They probably assume the people who actually need a lot of ports are the type of consumers who'd have a decently high-end Multichannel receiver. Whereas those people who don't need many connections probably don't even have a blu-ray player or anything. Maybe just a gaming console for the kids and an old DVD player.

@  wonko the sane? : (14 November 2020 - 04:04 PM)

I saw that movie. I don't want jim carrey in my head.

@  Maximus Ambus : (14 November 2020 - 03:43 PM)

Soon beam TV programs into brains with a neural transciever anyway.

@  wonko the sane? : (14 November 2020 - 03:28 PM)

I'm surprised they keep reducing the number of ports on TV's.

@  Tm_Silverclaw : (14 November 2020 - 02:52 PM)

Ahh.. No.. I mean an HDMI 2.1 switcher box to give you more imputs on a TV. :D Those should have been released in preparation of the XSX and PS5 considering their touting 2.1 features. :D

Hey all. We've started an official Discord server for the Allspark, and after selectively circulating some invites to shake things out, we're now going fully live. The invite link is here: 

 

https://discordapp.com/invite/9esErqN

 

If you're not familiar with Discord, it's a live chat system often used for gaming chats, most similar to Slack, or more distantly similar to Skype and Google Hangouts, which are another step over from modern IRC systems like Riot. It's not very much like old-school IRC at all, given the persistent log, image embedding, text formatting, support for voice and video, *droning continues*

 

If you're not familiar with any of those things, Discord is a live chat client where we can argue about stuff at the speed of type and Enter. We've been having quite a bit of fun doing that the past few days and would love to have anyone join who's interested. 

 

You can join using the Discord web client without even creating a permanent account, although creating one will give you options like setting an avatar and keeping access to servers you join without an invite. Installing the desktop or mobile client (which works on everything, we've checked) gets you desktop notifications and the whole biscuit. 

 

We currently only have one discussion channel open, but will open more as needed in the future for topics as they become recurring. Current discussion is on health and safety standards regulation in Ohio.

 

Come play!


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?

Naw, that's the Mayhem server. If you're fun we* might invite you.

 

We**'d like to note that the Allspark Rules and Guidelines apply to the official Allspark server. That means no personal attacks, nudes and lewds, and all the usual. We do watch and moderate the conversation but please feel free to pop one of us a direct message if you feel there's a problem. 

 

Some super-random Discord basics: 

 

• Discord uses markdown for text formatting. It's a standard set of tokens used in a lot of places that gets you things like *italics*, **bold text**, ~~strikethrough~~ and so on, though not colors. = ] You can see the official guide for more details. 

 

• You can embed images or attach files simply by dragging and dropping them into the chat. Image URLs and YouTube videos will automatically embed the content in the message.

 

• You can edit your messages, either by right-click, or by the up arrow if it's the last thing you typed. This can be very handy.

 

• Discord is a bit emoji-crazy, a perk of which is emoji reactions to others' messages. Right-clicking a message will allow you to pin an emoji reaction to it. Kinda handy in the way that a "like" is.

 

• A lot of personalization and configuration magic happens in your user settings menu, which you'll find in the cog icon at the lower left of the screen near your username. Points of interest are the My Account settings, where you can set your display name and avatar, and the Notifications settings, where you can control ... notifications. But there's a lot of stuff to tweak and finagle in there if needed. 

 

• Notifications can be a bit confusing and overwhelming, but they're something you can set both app-wide and per-server, and something you'll probably want to play with to suit your taste. Personally, I have notification sounds turned off, and mobile notifications turned off for all the major servers I'm a part of, with the result that I get a beep on my phone or tablet if I get a direct message and am not on my computer at the time, but not every three seconds when there's activity ... yeah. Play with it to suit your taste. You can find your notification settings for individual servers in the menu next to the server's name at the upper left, and your universal notification settings in your own user settings menu. 

 

 

* Mayhem

Yeah, sorry about that. I got antsy about the name since just plain old allspark is taken (For now)

 

I had it as allspark.tv but that's more oriented towards the youtube channel and I wanted it to be more about the community but that seems like allspark.community might be too long (Though it might change again). Right now it's set to allspark.forums so we'll just see how it goes. 

 

On a personal level, I'm not really a huge fan of facebook, but I can't shake my fist and yell at clouds about it because our community overall matters to me more than the software being used to experience it. 

 

And the fact that so many people there now are long time forum members that haven't been around to the actual forum in ages, I think we did a good thing. I don't like splitting things up per se, but I do think facebook is just something 99% of people use now and it's good to diversify to a point.

 

Plus, it officially replaces the temp spark as a place for posts discussions (with discord still being there for live chat stuff, which has also gained a lot of users).
