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.

How long until IDW puts out an Optimus Pride Month comic?

@  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)

So, back in 1994, when I created my Academy of Super-Heroes setting, I decided that one reaction to the near apocalypse of 1998 would be the formation of super-states.  The European Union took in Japan and a few other countries to become the Eurasian Union, China gobbled up most of Southeast Asia and chunks of Russia, and most of the Western Hemisphere ended up in...the North American Combine.  At the time, I had forgotten that this was the name of one of the factions in the OGRE wargame setting, ah well.

 

Fast forward a few decades, and I went in on the OGRE Miniatures Kickstarter.  The minis sat in their box for a while because I'd kinda gone in on too many Kickstarters my first couple years in Amarillo, but with the SECOND OGRE minis KS due to ship, I decided I should actually paint at least some of my first set.  I decided to go with the colors of my North American Combine, the flag of which is wedges of red, green, and blue merging into a white circle (combining colors of light, if you will).

 

combineogres1.JPG

 

combineogres2.JPG

 

combineogres3.JPG

 

combineogres4.JPG

 

combineogres5.JPG

 

Now there's all the Paneuropan units to do.  It would probably be easy to do them as Eurasian Union, since that flag is blue with yellow ring around a yellow star, and the minis are already blue.  But it's masochistically tempting to make them be from the "bad guy country" of Khadam...whose flag is yellow with white and green.

Building the bigger walkers legs first, then I'll do the hulls later and glue them on.  Pretty sure the brushes I've been using on the walkers so far will not survive long enough to be used on the hulls....

That eagle emblem is so damn cool. There's a lot of cool stuff going on here - I hadn't realized Heavy Gear had such neat designs as those walkers, and they look great in that scheme, and all the neon stuff is pretty clever - but that emblem is just awesome.

Yeah, Heavy Gear evolved past Terra Nova a while back, and the extra factions let them depart from the generic Gear design ideas.  The Blitz kickstarter resulted in four "starter box" sets, I did the entire Caprice set (if not always according to the official builds) as PRoC walkers.

Gotcha. I was only tangentially aware of Heavy Gear through the cartoon back in the day and some of the other merchandise and hadn't really looked into the game, let alone followed it. That's really cool that they're building on it and going in some interesting design directions.
