Jellystone National Pawk. A westful wetweat.

Jellystone. We're going to be plunged into a decade of poor animation. Fortunately we've been led by bad cartoon characters for years so we won't notice much difference.

@  Maximus Ambus : (01 July 2020 - 06:19 AM)

@  Nevermore : (01 July 2020 - 05:46 AM)

Thanks, dead person.

@  Bass X0 : (01 July 2020 - 05:06 AM)

congratulations to all survivors of the first half of 2020.

@  wonko the sane? : (30 June 2020 - 10:21 PM)

21 for me, but after numerous repetitions I got it down to 17 and a half.

@  -LittleAutob... : (30 June 2020 - 05:55 PM)

x-x when in vehicle mode we can travel much F A R T H E R-

@  wonko the sane? : (30 June 2020 - 05:52 PM)

Because despite the fact that we can travel around the world in the time it takes to get a good nights sleep and a couple of meals: people rarely wander more than 25 miles away from home for the duration of their lives.

@  Otaku : (30 June 2020 - 05:49 PM)

I don't know how many days that trip takes - especially while sightseeing - but explaining they're 3936 kilometers (2445 miles) apart gives an idea, paradoxically because it is too large to easily picture.

@  Otaku : (30 June 2020 - 05:44 PM)

Aye.  When I catch lay people discussing miles and not how long the trip takes, it is in an attempt to stress how far away something is... like NYC to LA.

@  ▲ndrusi : (30 June 2020 - 01:20 PM)

But I can imagine 45 *minutes* easily.

@  ▲ndrusi : (30 June 2020 - 01:20 PM)

I can imagine a mile, it's a distance I've run. I can't really imagine 45 miles.

@  ▲ndrusi : (30 June 2020 - 01:19 PM)

I think there's also an element of the thing where things that are much bigger than us all blur together.

@  Otaku : (30 June 2020 - 11:49 AM)

If you're not, then you're more concerned with how long it takes.  Actual distance doesn't tell you that very well.  Besides traffic and road conditions, you'll need to know what kind of driving (city/interstate/rural/etc.).

@  Otaku : (30 June 2020 - 11:47 AM)

Distance matters if you're being paid by the mile.

@  TM2-Megatron : (30 June 2020 - 11:44 AM)

Canadians are the same way, for the most part. If you're driving somewhere far, especially, it helps you plan out the day more than a distance in KM would.

@  Otaku : (30 June 2020 - 11:42 AM)

We use the time it takes to get someplace because that is what is relevant to us.

@  TheMightyMol... : (30 June 2020 - 10:55 AM)

Because even we can't figure out miles half the time.

@  Paladin : (30 June 2020 - 09:54 AM)

it's a big country with a lot of empty space. between our citizens' ears.

@  Bass X0 : (30 June 2020 - 09:52 AM)

Why do most Americans measure distance by hours of driving?

@  TM2-Megatron : (29 June 2020 - 07:26 PM)

And as a result the world's lone blu-ray release of the film, an Australian disc that came out 7 years ago, now goes for hundreds of dollars on eBay. Thanks Disney.

@  TM2-Megatron : (29 June 2020 - 06:21 PM)

Well, they censored Daryl Hannah's butt in Splash :rolleyes

@  Paladin : (29 June 2020 - 05:43 PM)

I don't want to be reissued. This body sucks, I wanna be updated.

@  Nevermore : (29 June 2020 - 09:43 AM)

I definitely don't intend to be reissued. Nobody would buy me.

@  Bass X0 : (29 June 2020 - 08:31 AM)

will anybody else attempt to be reissued?

@  wonko the sane? : (29 June 2020 - 07:51 AM)

*Gasp* Decepticons re-writing history to serve their own needs?!?!

@  Nevermore : (29 June 2020 - 05:48 AM)

The whole point of the DJD is that they're fanatical Megatron fanboys (especially Tarn) to the point of having their own headcanon taking priority of the actual canon, simply speaking.

@  TheMightyMol... : (29 June 2020 - 04:01 AM)

They didn't know the war was over until later. And then they denied it anyway.

@  PlutoniumBoss : (28 June 2020 - 10:47 PM)

"He's comin' right for us!"

@  Telly : (28 June 2020 - 08:40 PM)

was that even still in effect once the war ended?

@  TheMightyMol... : (28 June 2020 - 06:51 PM)

According to Roberts, soldiers can ignore the order to spare Whirl if he's directly threatening them. But mostly the DJD were out of their heads on Nuke and not really caring much at the time.

@  Xaaron : (28 June 2020 - 06:41 PM)

Also, they were hopped up on goofballs at the time.

@  wonko the sane? : (28 June 2020 - 06:06 PM)

Cause it was whirl. He opened his (non-existant.) gob at the just the right time to piss somebody off. Or, so I assume.

@  Maximus Ambus : (28 June 2020 - 06:00 PM)

If Whirl was off limits why did the DJD kill him?

@  TM2-Megatron : (27 June 2020 - 05:57 PM)

That sounds about right. I actually didn't get into it until the IQ expansion came out (which saved me a bit of expense)

@  Otaku : (27 June 2020 - 05:55 PM)

Weird question (and sorry for so many shouts): did Overpower really release in August of '95?  I could have sworn I attempted to play it with a classmate who shouldn't have been a classmate by that point.

@  Otaku : (27 June 2020 - 05:52 PM)

So... I don't have all my cards still somewhere. XP I still play Pokémon via the PTCGO, and I've been doing Card of the Days over on Pojo (on and off) since 2013.

@  Otaku : (27 June 2020 - 05:51 PM)

For both financial, personal, and practical reasons, all my collectibles had to go about 10 years ago: action figures, comic books, card games, RPG books, video games.

@  TM2-Megatron : (27 June 2020 - 05:48 PM)

I've still got all my cards, somewhere; I had a pretty decent collection. Still have the Japanese Digimon CCG, too. Glad I never got into Magic; way too pricey

@  Otaku : (27 June 2020 - 05:36 PM)

Technically, Overpower was my first TCG... except I never, ever learned how to play it, or understood that booster packs contained different cards than the Starter Decks.

@  Otaku : (27 June 2020 - 05:35 PM)

Can't forget what you didn't know in the first place.

@  Patch : (27 June 2020 - 05:28 PM)

Ah yes, Overpower. Who could forget the expansion where they added a new stat and you had to re-collect your heroes all over again.

@  TheMightyMol... : (27 June 2020 - 04:20 PM)

Counterpoint, when was the last time you spent money on Overpower?

Because of the mention of "different markets" I think you can probably expect the kind of cybertronian vehicle or alien stuff that gets touted in chinese and what not toylines. Like, "TRON cars" and what not. Though hopefully alot better realized than the hugging WFC alt modes and their "losenges with cockpits" they liked to do at times.

I have no idea how any of the infobites dropped actually come together...

But War Dawn style alt modes with less toy like design and meshing things different people like still says hovercar Bumblebee but now with the hard elbow jab that Aileron would be his repaint.

 

Yes! Aileron! Do it!

 

"War Dawn style alt modes" still isn't a thing though, unless everyone is Dion, a transport drone, or a box.

The "bridging the gap between the aesthetics that different areas of the world enjoy" thing 100% sounds to me like "looks more movie-ish". Asian markets have generally been very into the movies/movie aesthetic, right?


That's what it sounds like to me. I always thought Alternity managed to do that pretty well.

Yeah, I get why people don't like the constant rehashing of the first few years, but on the other hand... potential for a good G1-ish Ratchet. I skipped his Generations toy years ago because it was so ugly.

I'm not sure why but I kind of expect the first wave of this line to be retools of POTP, at least the deluxes. I doult we'll get a voyager Shockwave in the first year, because Shockwave getting a toy in the Cyberverse line but my personal hope is that they revisit Motor Master and redo him with the CW connection ports, mainly because I felt the CW figure was a failure on many levels, even as OP it was a failure to me at least.

Hasbro has said WFC Deluxes will be so different from Prime Wars ones in some way that when we see them we will know why Prime Wars Deluxes could absolutely not be used for the basis for the WFC Fan Chosen 2-packs.

That STRONGLY suggests no PotP retools.

-ZacWilliam, and maybe no CW-style Combining?

Maybe they'll take another year off from combining so as not to flood the market. I mean, Monstructor and maybe the seacons could fit Pre-war so long as pre-war isn't taken to be 'only vehicles'. Hasbro knows they're popular, ad knows we'd likely want more... so it would potentially make sense to come back to them now and then while trying to keep them 'fresh'

I do expect Hasbro to use the basic torso molds from CW & TR, regardless of what they say offically but as Shadewing said, it could be they taking another year off to scheme their next combiners, aside from the Seacons, they could be looking at the idea of more original combiners, I don't think anyone saw SkyRegin coming when they began releasing the figures, then again, I don't think anyone saw Hasbro doing serious G1 Dinobots beyond Grimlock, let alone having them combine, so its a case of expect the unexpected, at least until later this year when pictures start leaking out showing us what they been doing.

That STRONGLY suggests no PotP retools.

I think the thing that suggests no PotP retools was the following sentence about starting from a clean slate, all-new, etc. and not, you know, using retools from PotP. The "you'll get it when you see it" line is still ambiguous to me, since it's very specifically about the fan poll characters and sounded to me like he was talking about the fact of the pairing (which is explicitly not about a joint toy gimmick, but some other thing that will be obvious to us.)

I wonder how Hasbro would even be able to get rid of the stickers since they were apparently a COST measure. Price increase? Maybe a lack of gimmick which lets them spend more on paint?

I’m excited for a line of Dery-esque retro future alt modes, I mean I’ve wanted a proper toy of Bumblebee’s cybertronian alt mode and some tetra jets since I was little! So like I could be very down for what this line has got.

The change in design could be good, but if it veers too far movie that could be well... ugh. Like Universe Ironhide or the WFC (the game) designs: messy. There could be a balance but idk, I’m curious how Hasbro is gonna pull it off with the current budget? If it just means unpainted overly greebly tech detail haphazardly placed across the bot mode then I’m out. Hopefully not. (I also find it odd to try to work that look in when the movie series seems to be winding down?)

Also, if Wheeljack is on the list it means he's probably not part of the planned line, so if he doesn't win, no big white floaty box for Hoverbee to ride in.
