i wish theyd dub double zeta. thats the only one im missing for the "amuro vs char" thing (and chars not even in it so...). but given some of the things ive heard about it, its probly best that they dont dub it

@  Telly : (24 April 2019 - 11:02 PM)

and im on vacation next week so ill have lots of time to watch all this lol

@  Telly : (24 April 2019 - 11:01 PM)

@zaku ive got war in the pocket on standard dvd already. amazon didnt have it on blu ray. bonus points to it for having character designs by haruhiku mikimoto. and this collecction is only "new" in as much as its new to me on blu ray. ive had burnt dvd copies of it all for years

@  Xellos : (24 April 2019 - 09:44 PM)

Yeah, 00 was pretty good, and I recently watched Build Divers, and found it really fun. Got both limited editions of IBO... still need to watch them...

@  Steevy Maximus : (24 April 2019 - 08:30 PM)

00 is also pretty good, basically a refined version of the Wing concept, and IBO is great.

@  Steevy Maximus : (24 April 2019 - 08:29 PM)

I'll be the requisite "Build Fighters is actually pretty good" chime in

@  MEDdMI : (24 April 2019 - 07:52 PM)

G Gundam was the best. Horse mecha! Piloted by.... a HORSE!

@  ZakuConvoy : (24 April 2019 - 07:31 PM)

I'd probably recommend tracking down 0080 War in the Pocket to go along with your new collection, but you might have enough to watch for right now.

@  Xellos : (24 April 2019 - 06:53 PM)

G Gundam will likely always rank first for me, as it is the one I find the most fun, but 8th MS was great for being the most "realistic" of the UC stuff.

@  Telly : (24 April 2019 - 06:17 PM)

the only other gundam series ive watched-which was also the FIRST gundam series i watched-is wing (and ill probly get that on blu ray soon too). i know i havent watched everything tied to it, but the UC is quite enough for me lol

@  Telly : (24 April 2019 - 06:14 PM)

i think 8th team is my favorite, but cant say why. maybe it has something to do with them not being newtypes. i dont particularly like that concept

@  Xellos : (24 April 2019 - 06:11 PM)

8th M Team, 0083, and Zeta are my favorites of the original timeline. Have yet to watch Origin, but it is loooow on my list, as I never particularly liked Char. Quattro Bajeena was actually kinda cool, though.

@  Telly : (24 April 2019 - 05:49 PM)

so i just did something insane. i bought gundam origin, first gundam, 08th ms team, operation stardust, zeta gundam AND chars counterattack on bluray...

@  SHIELD Agent 47 : (24 April 2019 - 05:46 PM)

Hollywood stereotypes, eh? Don't get me started on how sheerly unrealistic that can be, and how badly Hollywood loves to stick to them.

@  Nevermore : (24 April 2019 - 05:44 PM)

Also, fun fact: To me, Dutch is the language that sounds harsh compared to German.

@  Nevermore : (24 April 2019 - 05:37 PM)

Generally, nobody shouts at each other in Germany unless they're either a) morons or b) doing it for comedic effect.

@  Nevermore : (24 April 2019 - 05:36 PM)

... based on an outdated way of speaking (I mean, does anyone in the US still speak like Joe Friday?)... which might also have been at least partially a regional thing.

@  Nevermore : (24 April 2019 - 05:34 PM)

Generally, many native English speakers' primary conception of the German language and its perceived harshness comes from Hollywood movies... created by non-native German speakers, with non-native German actors giving their impression of what they think the German language sounds like...

@  Nevermore : (24 April 2019 - 05:33 PM)

I might be severely biased, but as a native German speaker, I think the perception of the "harsh German language" is at least in part due to a myth created by Hollywood.

@  SHIELD Agent 47 : (23 April 2019 - 09:51 PM)

@Corvus Huh, did not know that part. Thanks for imparting knowledge!

@  Kayla Kaon : (23 April 2019 - 09:27 PM)

No because it's true.

@  wonko the sane? : (23 April 2019 - 09:17 PM)

Would I be jaded if i said that's a good lesson about people as well?

@  CORVUS : (23 April 2019 - 09:01 PM)

Overstated risk. Most observations of sexual cannibalism in the Praying Mantis occurred in captivity, versus nature. When entomologists began observing them in nature instead, they found that sexual cannibalism took place around 30% of the time. Basically, if a male Mantis avoids thin, hungry females, his chances are pretty good. #yesimanerd

I would hope getting laid is preferred over dying :p

@  Nevermore : (23 April 2019 - 05:20 PM)

Don't we all want to get laid?

@  TheMightyMol... : (23 April 2019 - 04:53 PM)

I'd spend the first few loops just taking an extended nap.

@  Dekafox : (23 April 2019 - 04:48 PM)

Endless death time loops certainly happen enough in Star Trek

@  Kayla Kaon : (23 April 2019 - 03:50 PM)

That's not what I had in mind but if that is what you would do in that scenario then that is pretty messed up. I would not want to be stuck in a perpetual loop of death. More like getting laid but that is just me.

@  SHIELD Agent 47 : (23 April 2019 - 01:58 PM)

Happy death day to you!

@  Kayla Kaon : (23 April 2019 - 01:45 PM)

.... I would love that. To be stuck in an endless loop where no one remembers what happened... The possibilities :D

@  ZakuConvoy : (23 April 2019 - 01:43 PM)

Are you stuck in a Groundhogs Day situation? Because if you are, you need to tell the rest of us so we can take advantage, too.

@  Kayla Kaon : (23 April 2019 - 11:10 AM)

Lol today needs to end asap so that I can start over tomorrow

@  Ashley : (21 April 2019 - 10:08 PM)

They frequently do, but yeah there's no rule. Google will usually answer it for a specific restaurant, though

@  TheMightyMol... : (21 April 2019 - 02:57 PM)

Depends on the restaurant and the area. There's no universal rule about it.

@  TM2-Megatron : (21 April 2019 - 02:41 PM)

I thought restaurants were one of the few things that stayed open on holidays, along with movie theatres and the like

@  SHIELD Agent 47 : (21 April 2019 - 02:30 PM)

Well here I am hungry on a Sunday afternoon and I head to Chipotle only to find out right then and there that the place is closed for Easter. Yay.

@  MEDdMI : (19 April 2019 - 09:21 PM)

oof, yikes. Good luck.

@  wonko the sane? : (19 April 2019 - 09:18 PM)

We're in the middle of a kitchen reno and NOTHING will be done until tuesday. I could beat a four day weekend with a hammer right now if it meant I could use my stove again.

@  Steevy Maximus : (19 April 2019 - 06:47 PM)

Can't beat 4 day weekends either.

Let the merry-go-round of event deaths begin!

 

So the first one really caught me off-guard. I see the bodies from Velocitron, and I see Cybertron Override, Energon Hot Shot, and someone who looks like Cliffjumper. And I think, "Weird. What toy from the Unicron Trilogy looks like Cliffjumper and could be on Velocitron?" And the next panel is, "That's...Cliffjumper". I was expecting a generic easter egg and it turns out to be a real death. That was rough.

 

Caminus's Strafe is looking oddly vehicular again. I don't know if that's a spoiler for The Falling or an art error.

 

Elonia's metal is officially confirmed to be Ore-12, and the devastated body of Emissary is uncovered. And although the Titan is still alive, he is murdered by Arcee in order to stop a counter-signal from his Space Bridge that was preventing Wheeljack from teleporting the population of Elonia to safety. Gods are dying.

 

And then comes Wheeljack. Criminally underused since his return in RID #33, Wheeljack sacrifices his life to hold together the Bridge and save 2/3rds of Elonia's population. His last thoughts were of Ironhide.

 

LV-117 continues to be weird. The destruction of the planet seen in RID #10 apparently happened last week, although the effects and ramifications have been rippling through the universe for years.

 

The dead worlds of Prion and Gorlam Prime were also consumed. How one manages to consume a planet that already collapsed into another universe, I dunno. Velocitron is gone and Eukaris is going with it.

 

Windblade confirms that Cybertron intercepted the transmission in First Strike #6 that said "Welcome. Death." A second signal (confirmed in the back materials to be from TFvV #5) sent out a single word..."Unicron."

 

And now, the end of all things...

I'd be madder about Velocitron but this is the end of the whole universe anyway so

 

kind of annoyed it's one of the first places they decide to tap for that tho


"Disabled people donít have special needs. We have very reasonable human needs. Our needs include freedom from abuse, violence, and mistreatment, the right to autonomy and self-direction, the right to represent ourselves, equal opportunity for education and employment, the right to accommodation, and societal inclusion and acceptance.

The need for accommodation isnít a ďspecial needĒ. Itís a basic human right. Itís a leveling of the playing field that allows us the same opportunities and chances as non-disabled people."

But I will anyway. Boo Wheeljack.

Honestly, I liked Wheeljack's death. It was meaningful to who he was as a character, nicely heroic, someone he's got a lot of history with was there, and it was under the writer who's had primary custody of him for the last six years.

It got me tearing up a bit, which I take as a sign it was well-executed!

So the Spaceknights flew into Unicron's mouth while he was eating, saw some crushed tatters of Velocitron in his, uhh, cheek-pouches or something, and then Unicron... spit them back out onto Elonia? Or allowed them to fly out of his mouth, despite his gravity beam sucking a whole planet inwards?

The Knights split up, as seen on page 4, panel 3. Rom and Livia flew over the surface of Unicron's body and saw the Velocitron remnants (which are there because, as explained later in the issue, Unicron is building up his body from the worlds he eats), whilst the others flew up to his mouth and got obliterated. Rom and Livia seemed to get caught in a shockwave from that and knocked down to the planet's surface.

I wonder what he was going to say to Ironhide. It read very much like it was meant to be "I love you", but, like, Ironhide and Wheeljack haven't really interacted much at all.

Unicron the world destroyer is here. And here we go with fatalities.

Damn. Emissary is gone as soon as he was unearthed. What a shame, if it does highlight the crisis level posed by Unicron.

And so passes Wheeljack. You will be missed.

A second signal saying Unicron was sent out during the events of Transformers vs. Visionaries, eh? Well that could have been set up better.

There goes Eukaris.

So Prowl the owl has appeared as a Chimeracon, a Maximal, and a Eukarian? Haha, I guess that attests to how beloved the character design is.

And I wonder if its specifically Alex Milnes decision to repeat Energon Hot Shots cameo from MtMtE #35. Heh, Unicron Trilogy forever!

It was "Tell Ironhide to..." rather than "Tell Ironhide I..."

In part, I think what I like about their deaths, is that they weren't done to hurt Unicron, they weren't any big sacrifice for victory.

 

They died because there wasn't enough time for anything else.

 

It's a kind of tragic sacrifice just to let others have a little bit more time, whether willing (Wheeljack) or unknowing (Emissary)

 

Although it is a real pity we'll never get an Emissary with Emissary and Emissary titan.

I got to the last page... and now I have no interest in it at all. Eukaris being shown to be destroyed with no evacuation just makes windblade look like an idiot. The fact they weren't evacuating other colonies... Like I said, just stupidity all around. Optimus prime is not the only person who can evacuate a planet.
Look, look... I'm going to be honest with you. 99 percent of everything I say and create is a reference.

Also apparently I sound like Dusty Rhodes.

I imagine there were, like with Cliffjumper's team on Velocitron. We just don't see it on that page.

 

There may have just been levels of success, depending on how much warning they got.
