When I was about four years old, my parents bought me Bugbite and tried to tell me it was Bumblebee. I was not yet a fan of Transformers, but I knew that wasn't Bumblebee. I didn't even have the real Bumblebee at that time.

@  Maximus Ambus : (21 October 2020 - 01:39 PM)

It would come with two soundtracks: the eighties classic and one featuring dubstep and the VAs are popular Youtubers.

I just couldn't think of worse music than disco...

@  NotVeryKnightly : (21 October 2020 - 11:35 AM)

What were you trying to imply with the mocking sarcasm, though? Nobody suggested that '80s music was any more "of it's time" than '70s music.

@  wonko the sane? : (21 October 2020 - 11:18 AM)

I said that disco wouldn't fare much better with the same context: media is property of it's time; biases, culture and limitations are all inherent in that. Some stuff can be brought forward because of an inherently timeless nature or the simplicity with which it was made but lots of media is a time capsule of the period of when it was made.

@  NotVeryKnightly : (21 October 2020 - 08:46 AM)

I'm not sure what you're trying to imply, or what you even think I said.

@  wonko the sane? : (21 October 2020 - 08:11 AM)

Yeah, cause disco would make the transition so much better...

@  NotVeryKnightly : (21 October 2020 - 07:17 AM)

I feel the '80s music would be jarring when running over current-day CGI instead of well, '80s visuals.

@  Maximus Ambus : (21 October 2020 - 05:39 AM)

Not a remake, reanimated scene for scene, like that fan vid titled they were always real to me.

@  TheMightyMol... : (21 October 2020 - 04:37 AM)

Because we need more remakes these days.

@  Maximus Ambus : (21 October 2020 - 01:36 AM)

Be a hoot if these Studio Series 86 toys led to Transformers The Move Reanimated like Pokemon Mewtwo Strikes Back Evolution.

@ZakuConvoy Lumines Electric Symphony. So still halfway interesting, and it’ll play on the PS TV

@  Demovere Xeno : (19 October 2020 - 10:36 PM)

@Maximus: I paired the Battle Patrol with Ironworks and they look good together, though the Off Road Patrol would probably fit best as vehicles you're likely to find at a construction site.

@  ZakuConvoy : (19 October 2020 - 09:39 PM)

So...was it something like Tearaway or Gravity Rush or was it just a FIFA or a Madden?

@  Steevy Maximus : (19 October 2020 - 04:09 AM)

My local Walmart FINALLY got a restock of Generations during the early September reset and got a big shipment of Earthrise wave 1 (the first I’d seen around here). IF, and that’s a big IF, they restock I’m expecting a bunch of wave 3. Or wave 2. But we’ll be skipping one of those waves.

@  Steevy Maximus : (19 October 2020 - 04:08 AM)

Barricade hanging around

@  Steevy Maximus : (19 October 2020 - 04:08 AM)

Brunt barely appeared here at all, wave 3 was pretty much skipped for a big load of wave 4, with Impactor and

@  wonko the sane? : (18 October 2020 - 10:13 PM)

Brunt is shelfwarming around me. One walmart moved the whole lot of them off to a side shelf, but couldn't be added to liquidate them.

@  unluckiness : (18 October 2020 - 09:01 PM)

Ironworks is a plague. No idea if it was overproduced or if nobody wants it but thing's clogging shelves.

@  Tm_Silverclaw : (18 October 2020 - 04:23 PM)

My walmart the few times I go in will be lucky to have two or three transformers period.

@  TheMightyMol... : (18 October 2020 - 10:29 AM)

I mostly just see walls of Ironworks. And the occassional Siege Hound.

@  Paladin : (18 October 2020 - 08:44 AM)

condolences.

@  Nevermore : (18 October 2020 - 08:40 AM)

My local Symths is still chock full of Earthrise wave 1.

@  wonko the sane? : (18 October 2020 - 08:24 AM)

Yup, generally so much they don't bother with any other waves as the existing stock doesn't sell out.

@  Nevermore : (18 October 2020 - 07:56 AM)

All the damn time.

@  Nevermore : (18 October 2020 - 07:56 AM)

If there's anything there's going to be plenty of stock, it's wave 1.

@  Nevermore : (18 October 2020 - 07:56 AM)

I'm really not worried about wave 1 of a new line EVER.

@  wonko the sane? : (18 October 2020 - 07:47 AM)

At least you got listings for kingdom. walmart canada won't list them until they're actually in stock and that could very well never happen. I'm gonna get mine from BBTS cause I'm not missing out on the maximals.

@  Nevermore : (18 October 2020 - 07:32 AM)

And I don't buy the "they all sold out" explanation. The Kingdom figures are still listed.

@  Nevermore : (18 October 2020 - 07:32 AM)

I don't see any of Friday's reveals at Walmart.

@  Nevermore : (18 October 2020 - 07:23 AM)

There's a difference between "sold out" and "no trace of a listing".

@  Nevermore : (18 October 2020 - 07:23 AM)

There is still a listing for the scalped and sold out Walmart exclusive limited edition version of Gigawatt.

@  Nevermore : (18 October 2020 - 07:22 AM)

But there should still be a listing.

@  Tm_Silverclaw : (18 October 2020 - 06:30 AM)

Probably got scalped and sold out in seconds.

@  Nevermore : (18 October 2020 - 04:10 AM)

And I don't see links anywhere either.

@  Nevermore : (18 October 2020 - 04:10 AM)

So did Walmart somehow fail put up the Headmasters preorders as promised by Hasbro, or have the listings been taken down again? I cannot find them.

Where'd the name Vexilium come from?

 

Also, the Perceptor profile has an extra sentence from Thrust's. Just a heads-up.


On rare occasions, I have something to say.

When discussing the potential of doing other Hearts of Steel characters, I noticed that Centurion and Domitius Major were both derived from Roman words. Because of that, I suggested we follow that theming for the rest of the Axalon crew. While I (jokingly) suggested Shockwave's counterpart be named "Fascinus," Vexwing came up with the much better name "Vexillum," which is basically a military standard/war flag used by the Roman armies. Since a vexillum would be used by the army to represent the Empire, it made sense as the name of the guy that Shockwave would use to represent himself.

 

Also, FOR HUG'S SAKE YOU GOTTA BE FREAKING KIDDING ME!!! HOW MANY HUGGING TIMES DID WE PROOF THIS THING AND NOBODY (myself included) CAUGHT THAT?? GAH!!!!!

Yeah, like Daniel said. We were continuing the Roman naming precedent set by Centurion and Domitius, and a Vexillum, being the military standard used to represent a unit, seemed appropriate for the guy Shockwave chose to represent himself.

 

It also has a double meaning, as it's also a genus of sea snails, and I thought a giant armored sea snail was a decent analog for the ironclad warship he would adopt in HoS. The one image we have of his Eukarian design was pretty spiky and nondescript, so I thought it was as good a beast mode as any.

 

I refer to the beast mode as a "spiny gosupu sea snail" as a nod to the Mystery of Convoy snail-like Gosupu enemies, but I didn't picture him looking quite like them. That giant eye that was on his chest would certainly feature prominently beast mode. It's something I intend to sketch up at some point.

Is your Swindle profile to be spun off from the cameo in Optimus Prime #19? And Smokescreen from Lost Light #2?

Just curious if the cbz version is available yet and I just missed the post? The pdf (for me, anyway) has a "glitch", I guess, where just as I'm almost to the bottom of Cosmos' profile the zoom drops down to where the text is almost unreadable and trying to reset/zoom back in results in needing to scroll side to side to read.

Not yet. We're also going through and making some corrections to the first issue first. Be sure to keep your eyes glued to this thread for updates.

Guys, I'm going to have to withdraw my claims. I've been poking at this for several days and the inspiration just isn't coming.


"Disabled people dont 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 isnt a special need. Its a basic human right. Its a leveling of the playing field that allows us the same opportunities and chances as non-disabled people."

No need to withdraw yet, Tyranno. We're not in a rush, there's no hard deadline, and we have tons of characters to fill future issues. Perhaps inspiration will strike at some point.

Yeah, like SoS said, no worries. If by chance someone else wants to do a character you claimed, then we'll worry about that. But you've got plenty of time to do your stuff.
