At it's worst it still stomped all over the failed Hasbroverse. Roberts and Roche kept their respective series well out of that one for the same reasons Bendis kept a tight leash on Ultimate Spider-Man when Loeb and Miller wanted greater control for Ultimatum.

@  Maruten : (17 September 2020 - 06:37 PM)

That's so accurate it's physically painful.

@  Rycochet : (17 September 2020 - 02:05 PM)

The Red Dwarf of Transformers? An interesting, innovative and genuinely funny series that descended into a self referential mess of cliches that continues long after it should have been put out to pasture and rendered nerly everyone thoroughly unlikeable? That seems about right.

@  Bass X0 : (17 September 2020 - 01:59 PM)

MTMTE and Lost Light are the Red Dwarf of Transformers stories, as opposed to the others which are more like Star Wars and Star Trek.

@  Kalidor : (17 September 2020 - 01:37 PM)

Anyone in CONUS want a Skylynx for $100 shipped?

@  Maximus Ambus : (17 September 2020 - 01:34 PM)

Maybe an acquired taste in that's in that it's from a fan raised on the UK run where Transformers wasn't taken so seriously in many stories, especially some Earthforce standalones.

@  Paladin : (17 September 2020 - 09:47 AM)

so, terrible?

@  ▲ndrusi : (17 September 2020 - 09:26 AM)

Yeah I think at that point Lost Light is just the '86 movie without the soundtrack.

@  NotVeryKnightly : (17 September 2020 - 02:28 AM)

So, exctly what Triangleman just said.

@  Bass X0 : (17 September 2020 - 12:36 AM)

A few of the same characters.

@  ▲ndrusi : (17 September 2020 - 12:07 AM)

Now having actually read Galaxies #10, I don't actually see what it has in common with Lost Light at all besides featuring Ultra Magnus, Chromedome, and a spaceship.

@  ▲ndrusi : (16 September 2020 - 05:33 PM)

So, it's exactly like Lost Light, then.

@  Bass X0 : (16 September 2020 - 01:52 PM)

What if Lost Light was stripped bare of its charm and humor? Galaxies #10 is the answer.

@  ▲ndrusi : (16 September 2020 - 01:49 PM)

I didn't mean "*exactly* 15 years ago and no other time."

@  NotVeryKnightly : (16 September 2020 - 12:27 AM)

I mean, the comment was about a linewide gimmick of 15 years ago, not a gimmick only present in a minority of toys from that year.

@  Maximus Ambus : (16 September 2020 - 12:14 AM)

I'd like a western take on the UT for it's twentieth, like a annual CG or anime movie on Netflix that is a condensed retelling similar to the film Macross/Robotech: Do You Remember Love.

@  Maximus Ambus : (16 September 2020 - 12:11 AM)

Giant Planet had them, Energon had a few. I've been disappointed in Siege for not having something for the Micromasters, Earthrise has with the base bots but they've been wasted here.

@  NotVeryKnightly : (15 September 2020 - 10:47 PM)

Wasn't 15 years ago Cyber Keys rather than Minicons?

@  Steevy Maximus : (15 September 2020 - 09:38 PM)

By and large, even the worst Minicons have some unique engineering or design elements. The nostalgia factor aside, Micromasters got pretty samey after you got several, especially the "proper" 89 series.

@  unluckiness : (15 September 2020 - 07:13 PM)

There's certainly a load of crummy ones to sift through

@  TheMightyMol... : (15 September 2020 - 05:29 PM)

Or both. There's some overlap.

@  wonko the sane? : (15 September 2020 - 03:19 PM)

People either hated minicons or became completely addicted to them.

@  ▲ndrusi : (15 September 2020 - 03:17 PM)

A properly-planned theme, or as people called it 15 years ago, a stupid linewide baby toy gimmick that ruins the toys.

@  SHIELD Agent 47 : (15 September 2020 - 01:39 PM)

Look on the bright side: at least Kingdom has a properly-planned theme to its name unlike Power of the Primes being a hilariously transparent junk drawer for the PWT, and with letdown Prime toys to boot.

@  -LittleAutob... : (15 September 2020 - 01:33 PM)

@  Maximus Ambus : (15 September 2020 - 01:08 PM)

War for Cybertron trilogy is a strange thing, from pre Earth to Earth to Beast Wars.
What was their plan again?

@  wonko the sane? : (13 September 2020 - 01:41 PM)

You can't force other people to sell; ao despite abundance the prices are high. I'm just a small scale hobbyist, I'm not looking to cash in just help other folks with their... uh, passion.

@  Rycochet : (13 September 2020 - 01:28 PM)

It's like diamonds, artificial rarity boosting the price,

@  wonko the sane? : (13 September 2020 - 01:25 PM)

I call bull carp on that. There's a HUGE secondary market, and gently used pieces go for tens of thousands.

@  Rycochet : (13 September 2020 - 01:24 PM)

They lose a lot of their value when not mint in sealed body.

@  wonko the sane? : (13 September 2020 - 01:04 PM)

I could probably stand to part with 2 or 3 of them. I've been collecting them for years anyway.

@  Rycochet : (13 September 2020 - 11:45 AM)

Coming soon to kijiji, wonko's kidney.

@  wonko the sane? : (13 September 2020 - 11:37 AM)

I threw a bunch of lawn and garden tools up on kijiji, today someone messaged me and said they wanted them all. They haven't even tried to haggle or anything. I suspect I'm about to be robbed or otherwise ripped off.

@  Classic Cybe... : (11 September 2020 - 11:03 AM)

Proud dad moment: my 6 year old daughter telling her 3 yr old brother that Prime is the leader because he has the matrix, but Hot Rod gets it next.

And just when Runabout was unveiled. COINCIDENCE? Hey I have a ad campiagn for them! Nowhere is sacred!

@  Bass X0 : (09 September 2020 - 05:17 PM)

so there is graffiti near work which says "F*** THE MATRIX!" and "FTBR". If I did graffiti myself (I don't), I'd change it to FIBRIR.

@  -LittleAutob... : (09 September 2020 - 02:04 PM)

Yessssss

@  Maximus Ambus : (09 September 2020 - 01:00 PM)

Actually we could easily get the CW constructicons and TR Galvatron in Studio Series like Cogman. I still hope Kingdom Galvatron is him with COMBAT support either as Megatron in Galvatron armor or Energon Galvatron who is G1 Galvatron with detachable wings and particle cannons.

No, the narrator usually just sounds like they can't remember who the characters actually are, so most chapters start with describing their physical appearances.

The art is from Kuroboshi's pixiv.

Ah, maybe this is some new feature then.

 

I wonder if it's fate that the first thing on this pixiv was art of Aikatsu!'s Ichigo with an Akari plush.

 

Well, it's brilliant art anyways.

"Hmm. Well, how many springs have you seen Kino? Fifteen? Thirty? Or maybe, 300?"

The rider called Kino answered with a laugh, "Was it that long already? I’ve already forgotten. What about you, Hermes?"


What a thing to say right before they find a country that invented fake reincarnation.

(They meant "spring" as in the season, not the object)

I meant more that nobody likes idol legislators but that works too.

 

I should have known it was only a matter of time till these fashion trends skipped from EXILE TRIBE and other LDH acts into wider Japanese music;

 

 

This PABLO guy is from a band called Pay money to my pain, who were involved with AKIHIRO NAMBA a few years ago ie the guy behind the super-cool God Eater 2 OP.

 

He also regularly plays guitar on LiSA tracks.

 

Apparently Pay money to my pain performed the Nobunagun OP...

I've noticed that in volume 8 and 9, Kino (and Shizu) is moving westward. The ship country sailed towards a continent to the west, and there's mentions of Kino having previously been in places east of where she currently was in a few stories.

I have no idea what relevance this actually has since there's no world map or anything.

Also, the Killing Country chapter (which Kino does not appear in) in volume 9 has such a punchline:

I'm starting volume 2 of Wandering Witch now. There's a spread introducing new characters. I wonder if any of them will be recurring.
  • Anna is "an expert" who "researches ghouls".
  • Elise is "a beastkin girl" who was "subject to persecution".
  • The Divine Cat is... some sort of creature. It can talk to people.
  • Rosamia is a knight and "attendant to Princess Chocolat".
  • Princess Chocolat "fled from a political marriage".
My bet is the knight, the princess and the cat will be recurring, for easy analogues to Kino's Journey stories.

I like how her name is "Chocolat" and she has a vaguely depressing backstory.

 

 

The Divine Cat is... some sort of creature. It can talk to people.

 

I think in LNs, there are more magic cats than any other animal.

There's actual statues and figurines of female anime characters wearing it, so it wouldn't have been that unexpected if the Enterprise cosplayer was wearing it too.

On a side note, the artist who designed the foreigners from FGO and the art for Kino's Journey, has just designed the avatar for a v-tuber:

 

 

People are already saying this means she technically counts as a foreigner-class servant.
