I just realised that Unsolved Mysteries has the same initials as Ultra Magnus.

@  Patchouli Kn... : (22 June 2018 - 05:18 AM)

Yeah, really... what a shitshow.

@  Pennpenn : (22 June 2018 - 04:53 AM)

This week has been an almost unmitigated damn nightmare. It can go die in some metaphorical trash fire where it belongs.

I feel your pain.

This time ten years ago I was looking forward to Transformers 2.

Current status of my collection room in my new, still-under-construction apartment:

@  wonko the sane? : (21 June 2018 - 05:31 PM)

Depends on whether or not the motive engines for the vehicle mode are the same as the robot mode. Cause we know they use energon for everything.

@  Bass X0 : (21 June 2018 - 05:17 PM)

I was thinking today if Transformers would carry the fuel for their alternate mode in their robot mode? They'd have to, right?

@  TheMightyMol... : (21 June 2018 - 01:28 PM)

I mean, the clear meta reason is so non-Transformers don't die horribly on their ships, but that's not as fun to speculate about.

@  wonko the sane? : (21 June 2018 - 10:43 AM)

There's also lots of chemical reactions which only precipite with oxygen.

@  Tm_Silverclaw : (21 June 2018 - 09:27 AM)

Oxygen is obviously a native gas on cybertron and also let’s the equipment “breath” so to speak.

@  Cybersnark : (21 June 2018 - 08:47 AM)

@Wonko; Yeah, but why oxygen? There are a lot of non-flammable gasses they could've used. And we've seen TFs using radio to communicate in vacuum.

@  Robowang : (21 June 2018 - 08:29 AM)

As the Cream of Wheat glugged forth from his meatus, his mind focused on only one thing: Mommy loved him so.

@  wonko the sane? : (21 June 2018 - 08:17 AM)

there's lots you can't do in vaccuum. The least of which is audio communication.

@  Cybersnark : (21 June 2018 - 08:04 AM)

Though that begs the question of why a robotic species would keep their ships pressurized with oxygen in the first place.

@  Pennpenn : (21 June 2018 - 07:29 AM)

Guess it's just me playing FTL recently. Opening a few doors out to the void is a good way to deal with fires and rude visitors.

@  Tm_Silverclaw : (21 June 2018 - 07:14 AM)

Plus it depends on what part of the ship, can’t easily vent an interior area.

@  wonko the sane? : (21 June 2018 - 06:34 AM)

depends on what's wrong. If you need to get something out and away, would also need to have started in a pressurised space to begin with. If you just want to vent extra heat: it wouldn't work as well as vaccuum is an insulator.

@  Pennpenn : (21 June 2018 - 03:12 AM)

If they're in space wouldn't it make more sense just to vent the area affected to vacuum?

@  Tm_Silverclaw : (20 June 2018 - 07:16 PM)

I mean the foam was dangerous, but in space they probably put out the fires, then wore the equivalent of a hazmat suit to clean up.

@  TheMightyMol... : (20 June 2018 - 04:38 PM)

Only on special occassions.

@  Paladin : (20 June 2018 - 03:50 PM)

you don't?

@  TheMightyMol... : (20 June 2018 - 02:17 PM)

I mean, we don't usually use asbestos on our souls.....

@  Tm_Silverclaw : (20 June 2018 - 10:11 AM)

*looks at asbestos" Yep... Cause we've never used something harmful as a fire retardant. x.x;

@  unluckiness : (20 June 2018 - 06:32 AM)

fire retardant foam is so powerful it can extinguish even sparks

@  Pennpenn : (20 June 2018 - 05:23 AM)

I mean, this is a species that can be disabled (possibly fatally after a while?) by flame retardant foam, so yeah.

@  TheMightyMol... : (20 June 2018 - 01:28 AM)

Transformers are exactly as resilient as the plot needs them to be, so who knows, it could be lethal today.

@  RichardT1977 : (19 June 2018 - 08:50 PM)

Which is why Marvel Megatron was interested in Dr. Biggles-Jones' railgun design and had it grafted onto his G2 tank mode.

@  wonko the sane? : (19 June 2018 - 08:43 PM)

Doesn't really matter what transformers are made of. If you send a 10 pound ball of metal flying at a good enough velocity, you will do damage.

@  Soft Snow : (19 June 2018 - 05:53 PM)

A regular cannon that shoots cannon balls and does nothing to other transformers because they are robots but would put a mean whole in the side of your wooden boat...

A fusion cannon, or just a regular cannon?

@  Shiny Chariot : (19 June 2018 - 05:04 PM)

megatron but he turns into a ford fusion with a cannon badly welded onto the roof

My Little Fusion Cannon: Friendship Through Tyranny.

@  NotVeryKnightly : (19 June 2018 - 02:01 PM)

was that supposed to sound sexual

@  wonko the sane? : (19 June 2018 - 01:55 PM)

I'm pretty sure that megatrons cannon is his best friend, so that friendship is magic stuff won't work.

@  MEDdMI : (19 June 2018 - 01:16 PM)

And then the magic ponies force everyone to be friends FOREVERRRRRRR

@  wonko the sane? : (19 June 2018 - 12:06 PM)

Or... megatron just goes to war against skynet cause he can't stand the competition.

The upcoming 'Power of the Primes' miniseries, starting later this year.
The final act of Machinima's and Hasbro’s Transformers: Prime Wars Trilogy is ramping up its star power, with both Ron Perlman and Star Wars: The Last Jedi’s Mark Hamill joining the cast for the upcoming Transformers: Power of the Primes.
 
Hamill is no stranger to the Transformers franchise, having voiced a guest role in the Transformers: Rescue Bots series in 2014. He actually makes his debut in the final episode of Transformers: Titans Return, released Tuesday on the streaming service go90. In it, he plays Megatronus, the first Decepticon, exiled from Cybertron after murdering one of the other original Thirteen Primes. 
 
Megatronus will continue to play a large part in Power of the Primes, where he’ll be joined by Perlman, voicing Optimus Primal, as well as a number of new voice actors including Mikey Way, Jamie King, Gregg Berger — the voice of Grimlock from 1986’s Transformers: The Movie — and WWE’s Samoa Joe, who’ll take on the role of Predaking.
 
Mikey Way? As in, MY CHEMICAL ROMANCE Mikey Way? Hahahaha. HAHAHAHAHAHAHA!
 
AAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAHAHAHAHAA

Of course there's a figure of Rodimus as some kind of animal girl. Why would I be surprised by this?

I like Samoa Joe as Predaking. His heel persona would work quite well in the role.

Yeah, we've gone from Abridged show guys, to people nerds call celebrities because they were in Star Trek, and now real, actual movie stars. The following series will star Ian McKellan and Leonardo DiCaprio (and still have worse sound mixing than beginner YouTube channels.)

Optimus Primal voiced by someone other than Gary Chalk would feel wrong to me if they hadn't picked an alternative as perfect as Ron Freakin' Perlman.

what even is transformers anymore
"He learned, almost too late, that man is a feeling creature and, because of it, the greatest in the universe. He learned, too late for himself, that men have to make their own way, to make their own mistakes. There can't be any gift of perfection from outside ourselves. And, when men seek such perfection, they find there's only death, fire, loss, disillusionment, the end of everything that's gone forward. Men have always sought an end to toil and misery. It can't be given; it has to be achieved. There is hope, but it has to come from inside, from man himself."

I have a feeling it might be that special Megatronus we saw on that leaked packaging... was that Blast-off's?

"We got Mark Hamill for Megatronus! But, uh, our toy kinda sucks at Megatronus... let's run a special edition color that's closer and have the cartoon use that one instead."

Their Megatronus design doesn't resemble any Pretender, Prime master or Aligned bible thing. They're using a G1-fied version of the ROTF design. So chances are there won't be a toy at all advertised in the actual animation which is... about par for the course with these things.

Ron Perlman never would have been my first choice for Optimus Primal, but for some reason I can hear it. It's a shame that the only dialog we'll get out of this is going to be Prime Wars dialog.
