Wonko - I'm really sorry - I've been in that spot where everything is falling apart at the same time.

a minivan which NOW sounds like it's on it's last legs. Christ, why is everything breaking now?!?!?

I take objection to the idea that public health is "politics" just because some politicians don't listen to the experts.

@  fourteenwings : (04 March 2021 - 10:59 AM)

I was only replying to the general sentiment of the last three posts before mine.

@  NotVeryKnightly : (04 March 2021 - 10:58 AM)

The person you replied to specifically gave the example of "limiting the amount of people in a facility".

@  NotVeryKnightly : (04 March 2021 - 10:58 AM)

This wasn't about "lock[ing] everyone in the country down".

@  fourteenwings : (04 March 2021 - 10:57 AM)

All I'm saying is there are lockdown and anti-lockdown people and hashing it out in the shoutbox on a toy forum is dumb.

@  fourteenwings : (04 March 2021 - 10:56 AM)

You don't have to lock everyone in the country down to mitigate risks in one population.

@  fourteenwings : (04 March 2021 - 10:56 AM)

Of course older people have it worse, but America is one of those countries where people ship their old people to homes far away from the action anyways.

@  NotVeryKnightly : (04 March 2021 - 10:55 AM)

What ar you even trying to say, anyway? That we shouldn't complain about others increasing the danger more than necessary?

@  fourteenwings : (04 March 2021 - 10:55 AM)

Frankly, there's a lot to say on this issue that can't be encompassed on the shoutbox and I really really don't want to have to deal with politics every single time I check the forums.

@  NotVeryKnightly : (04 March 2021 - 10:54 AM)

To claim that this is about the people in the 20-40 range is also disingenuous.

@  fourteenwings : (04 March 2021 - 10:53 AM)

Essential workers and such are pretty fit on average which is an extra boon for them.

@  fourteenwings : (04 March 2021 - 10:51 AM)

It's not really a personal choice issue, it's a risk versus well, anything you want to do issue. Literally leaving the house results in potential exposure, mask or no. Overall, most of us who hang out here are 20-40, and our survival rate is comparable with some pretty out there statistics.

@  NotVeryKnightly : (04 March 2021 - 10:39 AM)

Anybody who has to go out because of work or groceries or whatever can't just choose to avoid any potential disease-spreaders, for one thing.

@  NotVeryKnightly : (04 March 2021 - 10:38 AM)

Kind of disingenuous to frame this as just a personal choice issue.

@  fourteenwings : (04 March 2021 - 10:22 AM)

This whole "I can't handle people not me having the choice to not put on masks" thing's a bit much.

@  -LittleAutob... : (04 March 2021 - 09:14 AM)

Hey, Florida is one of the most infected states, and we won't even shut down. We may use masks, but restaurants, clubs, you name it, those are still wide open. Also, what's limiting the amount of people in a facility again? :p

No kidding, but right now: unless it's physically on the shelf in front of you: there's no clear idea when it'll be available. And that goes for just about everything.

@  TM2-Megatron : (03 March 2021 - 04:18 PM)

I've heard new appliances are hard to get, for some reason

@  wonko the sane? : (03 March 2021 - 04:13 PM)

@  NotVeryKnightly : (28 February 2021 - 07:22 AM)

Didn't that come right after the 2016 clown panic? No way to make clowns not disturbing at the time, surely.

@  PlutoniumBoss : (28 February 2021 - 04:26 AM)

The clown guise is supposed to lure kids in, it's no good if it looks sus in one glance.

@  PlutoniumBoss : (28 February 2021 - 04:15 AM)

The new one tries too hard to be unsettling from the start. Curry's look is just a plain old clown, until he very much is not.

@  PlutoniumBoss : (28 February 2021 - 04:14 AM)

And Curry has a far more disturbing look at times than the newbie.

@  Sabrblade : (28 February 2021 - 02:22 AM)

And the original was a showcase of Tim Curry's delightfulness as an actor. 'Nuff said.

@  unluckiness : (27 February 2021 - 10:19 PM)

first one was a decent horror flick but the second was a mess plotwise and even the scares were worse

@  tigerhawk : (27 February 2021 - 04:57 PM)

Never understood the hype for the IT movies, too many floppy zombie chases, They're not in the least unsettling.

@  Maruten : (25 February 2021 - 06:00 PM)

@  Steevy Maximus : (25 February 2021 - 11:30 AM)

@  Steevy Maximus : (25 February 2021 - 11:29 AM)

It's really rather shocking watching the Investor Day presentation and seeing how much Hasbro actually owns now.

@  -LittleAutob... : (25 February 2021 - 10:26 AM)

If everyone had COMMON SENSE, then things would maybe go a little better-

@  repowers : (24 February 2021 - 05:33 PM)

If everyone would just have the exact same opinions as me then we wouldn't have this problem

@  Kalidor : (24 February 2021 - 01:49 PM)

It just depends on what it is. It is preferable to take it to P&R though. But sometimes current news as it's happening is less restrictive.

@  fourteenwings : (24 February 2021 - 12:18 AM)

Huh, good point (x3)

@  ▲ndrusi : (23 February 2021 - 11:46 AM)

Yeah. 1. People treat it like Twitter. 2. There's no "take it to P&R" since there's no P&R for the Shoutbox. 3. There's similarly no way to avoid either subjects or people in the Shoutbox since there's no division and it doesn't respect the ignore function, so people end up engaging when they normally wouldn't.

-ZacWilliam, there are some exclusives yet to be announced but that's it. WFC starts in Jan (which means Nov/Dec)

Technically, they haven't announced Inferno, Cindersaur, and Outback yet.

But, man, that means we only get 6 Prime Master molds, 5 Legends molds, 6 Deluxe molds, 3 Voyager molds, 3 Leader molds, and 1 Titan mold for this year of Generations. The rest are retools.

Cybertronian alt modes has a lot more potential for being interesting than Earth-based alt modes I think. So I’m pretty okay with this whole thing.

As far as “prequel” and “story”... outside of maybe a Machinima tie-in, there isn’t much need to fear any actual narrative touching the line.

I would bet it'll follow Prime Wars lead and we'll get a dash of new bots like Slash and Alpha Bravo but they'll be one or two a year rare.

Just figure out something to do with the heads, and the Titan/Prime Masters are halfway there.

 

And if you do them as energon cubes, you can have them as a call back to these guys.

Big Red with big jet crushing hands or we riot.

How does this get broken into a trilogy? What are the gimmicks? Do we still get little guys to provide a sense of scale for the big guys? Quintessons, who you plug into the robots and pretend are controlling them? Mini-Spies/Micromasters to drive around on the robots? Breastforce/cassette style animal partners being awesome? Cyberdroids/Dianauts doing something?

Where was this stated to start in Jan? I didnt see any indication POTP was not an 18-month line.

 

That Novastar was the single new toy in her assortment in Wave 4 should have been a clue for all of us.

 

I mean, I noticed, but I didn't want to accept the truth.

For a while now I've had the thought that I'd love to see a line using Animated-style engineering to make Cybertronian modes out of Dery models. Ideally models that we've never seen Cybertronian modes for. That way the robot modes can be as close to having stepped off the screen as possible without Masterpiece-level fiddliness, since the alt-modes could be anything that flows naturally from them.

Here we go. From Ben Yee reporting from the Hasbro panel:

https://twitter.com/...946139031228417

"(They) Want to tell the story of the war on Cybertron before they came to Earth. NOT based on the video games. #HasbroToyFair #NYTF #Transformers"

-ZacWilliam, so that seems pretty clear

 

I've been thinking on how to elaborate on why I'm so tepid on this, and I think it's that this story's just been told. So many times. With little variation.

 

Even IDW failed to really add much to it, it just expanded on stuff Aligned laid the seeds for.

 

This is the least necessary TF story to explore, save for anything involving Unicron and the events of TFTM.

I'm over here hoping that if its a prequel they can inject the Colony worlds concept in from the begining. So we don't have "lost" colonies, but still have Caminus Eukaris, Devisun et al represented in the current toyline.

I just want a legends class Aileron and more ladybots dammit. Some more mech-y beast bots too.

As a kid I always wanted to see more of their Cybertronian modes so the occasional episode there they went to Cybertron were my among favorites, but over the years I got stuff like Cybertron/GF Starscream and the WfC and FoC games and toys satisfied that very well.

 

I do hope they make Ironhide in his game and RiD15 body, always wanted a toy of that.

 

 

And it crossed my mind that I hope they still use the Colony worlds.

In this interview, the Hasbro team talks about how they want to take the next trilogy in a different design direction, and there's stuff about bridging the gap between the aesthetics that different areas of the world enjoy.  

 

Which sounds to me like WFC2-or-whatever might be a little movie-y, who knows.

The reference to "'gritty' [ugh] realism" and less toyetic designs than Power of the Primes is actually pretty good news. Wonder whether that's going to mean something more like what Studio Series looks like on the shelf.


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?
