In my Marvel comic canon the second wave of special teams were handpicked active robots whose experience would theoretically make more stable combiners, the Combaticons came from Cybertron, the Protectobots were imprinted from crystals explaining both Onslauhghts ancestry and First Aid's experience.

@  Cyoti : (18 June 2021 - 03:32 PM)

Even with B5, it didn't follow its original 5-year plan. Summaries from the supplementary materials for the scriptbooks demonstrates that was originally planned was very different from the actual product. Sinclair's actor's departure seemingly changed the show to the point that the stuff with the Vorlons/Shadows, the Minbari and the ending were all changed. Mapping out a show years in advance is difficult because of changing bts stuff like writers/actors leaving the show or suddenly having to retool because of ratings/execs. No plan survives intact especially in a chaotic environment of television production.

@  Rycochet : (18 June 2021 - 11:27 AM)

To be like Babylon 5, you need to cram a 2 season story arc into one because you fear being cancelled, then get further seasons you have no more material for. You also need a spinoff which the network heads don't want and do everything in their power to kill it while it's on air.

@  wonko the sane? : (18 June 2021 - 10:33 AM)

The required effort is probably why we don't have babylon 6; TNG.

@  Dekafox : (18 June 2021 - 10:23 AM)

Everyone wants to be like Babylon 5 but no one wants to put in the effort

@  Nevermore : (18 June 2021 - 09:36 AM)

And then, after five years of hosting their own official podcast where they would answer fan questions and always encouraged their audience to pay attention to the mysteries, after the show had ended, they claimed the show was never really about the mysteries, it was all about the characters.

@  Nevermore : (18 June 2021 - 09:34 AM)

What really bugs me with "Lost" is that the producers had willfully negotiated a set end date with the network halfway through season 3 (the show ended with season 6, as planned) specifically so they could plan out the plot for the remainder of the show. Then... the plot wasn't resolved properly.

@  tigerhawk : (18 June 2021 - 04:17 AM)

By then I had lost interest in arc TV shows, I followed a few and got the impression they were just making them up as they went along. Seemed to be a trend starting with new Galactica and Lost though in actuality began with The X Files and has become a trope called 'The Chris Carter Effect'.

@  Nevermore : (18 June 2021 - 02:12 AM)

I think it was season 3 part 1 specifically, since they had two separate plot "arcs" for season 3.

@  Nevermore : (18 June 2021 - 02:11 AM)

They threw everything in there, with no clear story structure, no clear stakes, and characters flip-flopping wherever the episode's writer needed them to go for their half-baked plot.

@  Nevermore : (18 June 2021 - 02:10 AM)

Season 3 was the worst, with a terrible meandering random events plot.

@  tigerhawk : (17 June 2021 - 11:59 PM)

'save the cheerleader' then in season 3 he tears her skull open, scans her power and she simply heals. They didn't think any of it through.

@  Shockwave 75 : (17 June 2021 - 07:04 PM)

Well, you know Hollywood; if something's popular, run it into the ground!

@  Cybersnark : (17 June 2021 - 04:40 PM)

And then there was the Writers' Strike, which isn't the show's fault.

@  Cybersnark : (17 June 2021 - 04:40 PM)

Yeah, Sylar should've been, if not killed off, at least left to rest.

@  Nevermore : (17 June 2021 - 03:43 PM)

It never truly recovered from that.

@  Nevermore : (17 June 2021 - 03:43 PM)

I wish they would do something like that here: but then it would become obvious in which provinces you're getting gouged.

I'm never gonna see the Netflix figures at Walmart, so I ordered the Quintesson Army Drone from Hasbro Pulse. Would have liked to get the Sparkless Seeker too, but that one was sold out.


2 Timothy 3:16,17 - "All Scripture is breathed out by God and profitable for teaching, for reproof, for correction, and for training in righteousness, that the man of God may be competent, equipped for every good work."

2 Timothy 1:9,10 - "God, who saved us and called us to a holy calling, not because of our works but because of his own purpose and grace, which he gave us in Christ Jesus before the ages began, and which now has been manifested through the appearing of our Savior Christ Jesus, who abolished death and brought life and immortality to light through the gospel."

Acts 17:30,31 - "The times of ignorance God overlooked, but now he commands all people everywhere to repent, because he has fixed a day on which he will judge the world in righteousness by a man whom he has appointed; and of this he has given assurance to all by raising him from the dead."

John 3:16,17 - "For God so loved the world,that he gave his only Son, that whoever believes in him should not perish but have eternal life. For God did not send his Son into the world to condemn the world, but in order that the world might be saved through him."

That might make for a desent Nemeis Prime, thou without the back pack on but then I think I might actually prefer if they did the original Cybertron Optimus in Nemesis colours and given a large sword because that is a awesome looking figure and one of the best looking OPs made, when the back pack is done right

I only saw Siege Galaxy Prime 1 time at the store and I was broke as hell that day and couldn't get him.  I never saw him again.  I would have like that one.  I might hunt him down at RoboCon or something.

I too barely saw him and was short of cash when I did. By the time I had the money to spend on him, near the end of the Siege line's run, I had to go across town to a Target I rarely visit in order to find their last one.

I think the concept of being educated and being able to educate is something that more people need more of in their lives.

No, we don't all know everything but we should spread and share that what we do know.

If I'm consistently misspelling a word, I would want and expect people to correct me as should I imagine all decent people who know the value of good literacy.

Its just arrogant laziness to know you're spelling a word incorrectly and not correct yourself or ignore the advice when people do tell you how to spell a word correctly.

I grabbed both wave 3 voyagers.

The Sparkless Seeker is the oddest thing since we had Hot Link already and this sparkless one is really just a commando theme seeker with two pointless Battlemasters, maybe they could have given him the underused Smashdown and Doubleheader.

Wave 2's voyagers didn't seem to have much to do with the show unless earth mode Optimus and Soundwave appear in some epilogue, so the wave 3 Voyagers could have been a tad more creative like Cyclonus or Astrotrain (minus his C.O.M.B.A.T arsenal) in their G1 toy colours, redecoes of Shockwave or Springer.

 

Edit: While arranging my figs, I was looking for Enerax and Sheeldron's blast effects and was kicking myself thinking I threw them away until I discovered, they didn't come with any, Tricanius doesn't even have them.

I assume because he is a straight reuse of the Siege SS mold, parts budget included. The Selects version wasn't released as part of a wave, so they probably had some wiggle room to include the rifle. Just speculation though.

In the UK these figures are slightly more expensive then the regular WFC figs, does that extra price all go to deco? otherwise I'd have thought they could all have extra guns. 

It doesn't add up that a 16.99 deluxe jumps to 19.99 for a bit extra paint, a 23.99 voyager with two 6.99 apiece battlemasters or one 10.99 core class can jump to 39.99.

I'm still waiting on Sparkless Seeker.  I know my Walmart Preorder says it will still be a while before he ships, but I had hoped maybe to start running into them in the wild a bit before the preorder date.
