The real clones were the friends we made along the way.

@  Maximus Ambus : (04 July 2020 - 01:47 PM)

So the Emperor in episodes 1 through 6 was a clone?

Today is the 24th anniversary of the day we fought off an alien invasion with the help of Will Smith.

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.

@  -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)

maybe New Mutants is too bad even for D+.

@  Steevy Maximus : (29 June 2020 - 05:00 PM)

X-Men films are coming to Disney+ next month. But will they censor Hugh Jackman's butt?

@  -LittleAutob... : (29 June 2020 - 12:44 PM)

Pft.

@  TheMightyMol... : (29 June 2020 - 11:59 AM)

Behold! Night Strike Galvatron!

@  Bass X0 : (29 June 2020 - 09:53 AM)

I will grant you a recolored body, and recolored troops to command.

@  Cybersnark : (29 June 2020 - 09:47 AM)

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?

So, Shockwave setting up all theStarscream stuff... how do we feel about that? Is that a cool concept or does it undermine the work done with Starscream over the last couple of years? I can't make up my mind.

In light of all the Shockwave revelations it's probably obvious and inevitable, but is it awesome or does it suck?

Even though we super knew it was coming, I still got a kick out of the final page.

Really enjoying the Starscream material here. I imagine some will be unhappy about his arc from TAAO being "undone", but IMO sliding back into comfortable behaviours is very in-character for him, and it's all clearly in service of further development now that Shockwave has torn him down.

On that note, my mind is boggling about what Shockwave's plan is... So it seems he actively wants Unicron to reach Cybertron? The Unicron #0 timeline described
Spoiler
so it's as if he wants Unicron to destroy Cybertron and then in turn destroy Unicron? And yet future solicits describe Autobots as teaming up with him! Hmm.

Smugwave is the best.

I also find it interesting that this basically pulls a "Dark Knight Rises" on the end of TAAO - saying that no, actually, fixating on what could have neen is unhealthy and just lets you avoid responsibility for your actions.

I'm not too bothered by the apparent backslide Starscream does here; he is an opportunist after all, and he was presented another opportunity.  It certainly made Shockwave's utter crushing of his remaining hopes and dreams feel pretty devastating.

 

Speaking of, it's great to have Shockwave back in form.  Was that his "evergreen" design?  I'd like a toy plz.

Ultimately, I think I'm OK with Starscream's "backslide", even if it does seem a bit out of place and relatively OOC. I guess my biggest concern is that this is basically rehashing his rise to power in the first place: take advantage of a disastrous situation to come out on top by once again relying on the prophecy of a Titan. At least this time there's a hint more of "everyone underestimated me" vibe versus "I deserve this because reasons". Meh.

 

Barber's really playing service to things going on in Marvel, though, huh? First we get the none-too-subtle Hulk comparison with Devastator, and now we're introduced to Space and (essentially) Mind Ores? I'm waiting for Optimus Primal to arrive with a glove already embedded with the Soul and Reality Ores at this point.

Pfft, next you're going to say that a supremely evil being, after years of foreshadowing, is going to show up wandering the cosmos gathering powerful artifacts and combining their energies to fulfill his final goal of total destruction.

I still can't get over the fact that Shockwave has effectively made his fanfiction into reality over millions of years.
