I both love and hate that the Alien franchise seems to have had more luck finding a niche as a line of children's toys than it has at producing worthwhile films.

@  Donocropolis : (17 January 2020 - 06:35 AM)

I've seen them on the shelves at Walmart. They're pretty great looking retro Aliens toys. https://www.walmart....-Vary/934039489

@  fourteenwings : (17 January 2020 - 01:11 AM)

IIRC somebody on here mentioned an unbranded Alien toy a couple of weeks ago? It seems like it was actually part of a collection for the Alien movie series by Lanard. Mattel's making some stuff too.

@  NotVeryKnightly : (16 January 2020 - 03:12 PM)

Is it really a worse name than say, HMS Spanker?

@  Maximus Ambus : (16 January 2020 - 02:36 PM)

'Boaty McBoatface' was a actual thing?! Wow.

@  NotVeryKnightly : (14 January 2020 - 02:00 PM)

Might be worth bringing back this thread.

@  ThunderWear : (14 January 2020 - 01:53 PM)

Of course I had the idea to download all the pdfs like a week too late. Anyone got an archive?

@  Steevy Maximus : (14 January 2020 - 12:48 PM)

The Collector Club is dead. Seems like it all came down shortly after New Year

@  ThunderWear : (13 January 2020 - 11:06 PM)

I can't get to the collector club website. anyone else? I was literally going to download all the fiction to finish reading.

@  Maximus Ambus : (13 January 2020 - 04:50 AM)

@  Benbot : (12 January 2020 - 10:05 PM)

@  wonko the sane? : (12 January 2020 - 02:11 PM)

Even in fallout, they never carpet bombed with nukes.

@  Maximus Ambus : (12 January 2020 - 12:43 PM)

I hope the stockpiled nuclear weapons of the US and Russia are accounted for then.

@  Nevermore : (12 January 2020 - 12:22 PM)

Geez. 1760 (!) bombs from World War II that had not detonated and were still armed have been found. That's only the numbers for the federal state of Germany I live in, and only for the first three quarters of 2019. For all of 2018, the total number was 2811 (!!) bombs.

@  CVReynolds : (11 January 2020 - 11:05 PM)

I've been wanting a Tarantulas that turns into a more realistic tarantula for a long time. Maybe Takara will someday do a Masterpiece, which would be neat. But I really want to see a modernized look like in the IDW comics.

@  Tm_Silverclaw : (11 January 2020 - 09:43 PM)

We need more Waspinators.. and rattraps.

@  Ashley : (11 January 2020 - 07:09 PM)

I'm on board with that

@  Dekafox : (11 January 2020 - 06:17 PM)

What I'm hearing is we need Cyberverse Waspinator

@  NotVeryKnightly : (10 January 2020 - 01:27 AM)

He's appeared across more branding changes than Waspinator, so maybe it's more the other way around.

@  Ashley : (10 January 2020 - 12:01 AM)

is C3PO the Waspinator of Star Wars? he'll live forever, because it's funny for him to suffer

@  Sabrblade : (09 January 2020 - 11:52 PM)

He's still waiting for them to be funny.

@  ▲ndrusi : (09 January 2020 - 10:35 PM)

If I go crazy, will you still call me Superman?

@  fourteenwings : (09 January 2020 - 11:37 AM)

I mean, it is easier to protect HDDs, and you can retransfer the data over and over forever?

@  NotVeryKnightly : (09 January 2020 - 10:45 AM)

Not in this comparison. He's making his own files, so they're (presumably) not restricted by DRM, so he can copy them as many times as he wants. It's potentially more reliable in the long term than hoping the specific copies you originally bought never accrue any damage for the rest of your life.

@  Echowarrior : (09 January 2020 - 10:44 AM)

I prefer physical copies too. Easier to protect something physical and tangible.

@  Maximus Ambus : (09 January 2020 - 09:55 AM)

I prefer having physical copies.

@  Tm_Silverclaw : (09 January 2020 - 08:56 AM)

I have plenty of physical media I turn into digital media for my plex server. Just finished ripping Ultra Seven

@  fourteenwings : (09 January 2020 - 08:50 AM)

Isn't the general consensus that we're supposed to be over physical media anyways?

@  Paladin : (09 January 2020 - 08:17 AM)

i still don't own a Blu-Ray player.

@  TheMightyMol... : (09 January 2020 - 07:35 AM)

My current TV works just fine. I don't see a need to upgrade. And by the time I do, the Next Big Thing will probably be out anyway.

@  Benbot : (09 January 2020 - 03:58 AM)

Me neither. I'm no rebel, though. I'm just poor.

@  Maximus Ambus : (09 January 2020 - 03:38 AM)

I haven't gone 4K yet, I'm a rebel.

@  Ashley : (07 January 2020 - 11:50 PM)

the comic theme is amazing

@  Bass X0 : (07 January 2020 - 03:18 PM)

Sounds like Victor Caroli but I’m not sure.

@  Bass X0 : (07 January 2020 - 02:35 PM)

Should I recognise the narrator of the Mutant Hunt trailer?

@  Maximus Ambus : (07 January 2020 - 04:30 AM)

I got me Titans Return Blaster, now watch them unveil Earthrise Blaster and Generations Perceptor, a retool of Titans Blaster.

@  ThunderWear : (06 January 2020 - 10:22 PM)

I recently switched to to the comic theme here at the Allspark and I'm so happy I just want to look at it.

@  NotVeryKnightly : (06 January 2020 - 08:12 AM)

Can you not take so many lines to say anything?

@  fourteenwings : (06 January 2020 - 07:47 AM)

Iunno, maybe people having unique pronunciations of things re:how they understand language makes the world a more colourful place, rather than one where we correct every seemingly grievous error?

@  Nevermore : (06 January 2020 - 06:12 AM)

Others insist on "Michael Yackson".

@  Nevermore : (06 January 2020 - 06:01 AM)

Because the very combination of those sounds is unknown to them, and thus they avoid it as if it were contagious.

@  Nevermore : (06 January 2020 - 06:00 AM)

For example, the English "J" sound consists of sounds that exist in German: Basically, it's just a "d" sound followed by a very soft "sh". Yet there are many Germans who insist on calling the late King of Pop "Michael Checkson".

@  Nevermore : (06 January 2020 - 05:58 AM)

I'm talking about names that should pe easily pronouncable if you just bothered to pay attention to how it's done correctly instead of insisting on "I speak X language and this is how I prounounce it!"

@  Nevermore : (06 January 2020 - 05:57 AM)

I'm not even talking about foreign names that have sounds that don't exist in the speaker's language.

@  Nevermore : (06 January 2020 - 05:56 AM)

Something that really irks me is when people are persistently ignorant about the correct pronunciation of foreign names, especially when it's people they either admire or frequently interact with on a daily basis.

Was intending the species more than the individuals. Thinking about it, since most of their actual story is intricately tied into Bombshell, I'll go with him specifically instead. Sorry about being imprecise.

You weren't imprecise, I was just curious what specific angle you wanted to tackle them from. Personally, I don't think Bombshell warrants a profile of his own. The Insecticons are so intrinsically linked, it would be best do them as a whole, like Bob, D.0.C, and Buster or Rumble and Frenzy.

Because Broadside is a horrible influence, I'm also claiming Armada Thrust/HoS Thrust, who will also use the Beast Wars "Transmetal" Claw Jaw redeco as a repurposed beast mode.

 

I have a better idea on how to write some of these.

Posted 07 July 2018 - 08:10 PM

And here he is

 

Name: Thrust
Real Name: Cephalotron
Occupation: Mercenary
Legal Status: Citizen of Eukaris, presumed dead/Decepticon fugitive
Place of Birth: Eukaris
Marital Status: Amica Endurae with Trickdiamond
Known Relatives: None
Group Affiliation: Wave Walker tribe, Crew of the Axalon (formerly), Decepticons (formerly), "The Thrusters"
Current Base of Operations: The Thrusters' ship, the "Hydra Cannon"
First Appearance (historical): Transformers Armada episode #25, "Tactician"
First Appearance (this continuity): Hearts of Steel #2
 
History: The Decepticon that would later share the Decepticon identity of "Thrust" was originally a Eukarian tactician serving under Domitius Major named "Cephalotron". Transforming into a creature remiscent of an Earth cephalopod, Cephalotron was part of the Wave Walker tribe, before he joined Domitius's exploration crew at the behest of Onyx Prime, where he continued to lend his tactical skills. However, as the crew's mission was exploration, not warfare, Cephalotron found his talents mostly unneeded. Due to growing paranoia and wanting to avoid obsolesence, Cephalotron staged a mutiny that ultimately failed. As a consequence, he was put into forced stasis for the rest of the mission.
 
However, their mission's end never came. The Eukarian ship was shot down over a planet called Earth, and Cephalotron, along with his fellow crewmates, were collected, remodeled, and reprogrammed to believe they were Autobots and Decepticons from the planet Cybertron. Ironically, Cephalotron would be the one partially responsible for what befell him and the crew, as it was his mutiny that ended up prematurely depleting their vessel's Energon stocks. Cephalotron was remade in the image of Thrust, a Decepticon air warrior, and was given a new flying alt mode, losing his submersible capabilities.
 
For the next century, "Thrust" and his fellow "Decepticons" battled "Optimus Prime" and his Autobots in simulated war games orchestrated by Shockwave, until all the Eukarians became low on energy and went into stasis. Thrust would wake up, many centuries later, after the departure of Shockwave. The two sides resumed their war in 19th century Earth, and Thrust was present when his "superior" Starscream tried to sway the human Tobias Muldoon to their side. However, something was amiss with the so-called Decepticon.
 
A random glitch in his diagnostic systems had caused Thrust's original memories to start to return, first in bits and pieces. This was enough to make him flee the Decepticons in confusion, and as a result, he fled them in order to make sense of the myriad memories running through his head. He went underground, spending many years in stasis as his original identity reasserted himself. But in all actuality, he could never go back to the way he was. He was no longer Cephalotron, nor was he the Decepticon he'd been remade in the image of. Instead, he was a combination of the two.
 
Thrust bided his time. Over the years, he watched as the real Autobots and Decepticons brought their war to Earth, and he became aware of the real Thrust's death in New York City. Taking advantage, he used the opportunity to get off planet by scanning Thrust's schematics and joining the Decepticons' exodus from the planet. No one noticed as he took the original Thrust's place on Astrotrain, and he was able to abandon the ship before anyone noticed him as well. Thrust drifted through space for some time, until he was able to catch passage to Troja Major, where he managed to find someone willing to remodel his outer appearance. Thrust was effectively reborn, retaining his new name while adopting a colorscheme that was evocative of his Eukarian identity.
 
Since then, Thrust has allied himself with a runaway Camien mercenary named Trickdiamond and a surviving refugee from the destruction of Prion named Inferno. The trio work together as soldiers for hire, with Thrust serving as the "brains" of the operation. Due to his own ego, Thrust has dubbed the group the "Thrusters", but neither Trickdiamond and Inferno are particularly fond of it.
 
Height: 23'
Weight: 18 tons
Eyes: Red
Hair: None
 
Strength Level: Thrust has average average strength for a Cybertronian, and his origins as an aquatic Transformer give him above-average endurance and resistance to pressure and force.
 
Unusual Powers: Like all Cybertronians, Thrust has the ability to transform between "robot" and "alt-mode". Where he once transformed into a squid-like lifeform, he now turns into an aircraft of extraterrestrial design, which is capable of both atmospheric and subluminal space flight. His origins as a member of the Wave Walker tribe also allow him to submerge himself without causing damage to his internal systems, though his new external modifications are still vulnerable to being flooded with water.
 
Weapons: Thrust is equipped with two underwing  laser cannons in vehicle mode, while in robot mode, he relies on spewing jets of flaming exhaust from his hands, which serve as his vehicle mode's engine thrusters. He's also able to create windstorms by rotating the wings on his back, which is similar to an ability he used on Eukaris that involved rapidly spinning his tentacles to create whirlpools.

And here we go, the Insecticons.

 

Insecticons
 
Past Members: Bombshell (deceased), Kickback, Shrapnel, Barrage, Chopshop, Ransack, Venom
Occupations: Insecticons
Legal Status: Indigenous Cybertronian Life
Current Base of Operations: Cybertron
First Appearance (historical): The Transformers episode "A Plague of Insecticons"
First Appearance (this continuity): Megatron Origins #4
 
History: The insecticons began existence as just another type of beast, no different than the others who owed their existence to Onyx Prime. Like the other beasts, their fortunes rose and fell with Onyx, and after the War of the Primes and the rise of Nova Prime, they became the lowest rung of Cybertronian citizens, treated as little more than vermin.
As such, the beasts became the perfect test subjects for Nova's scientist, Jhiaxus. The scientist was obsessed with the secrets of combination that had been lost with Onyx's brother, Nexus Prime, and sought to recreate them anew.
To this end he performed experiments, linking both the minds and bodies of beasts, forming abominations of science that only came to an end with the creation of his "perfect" combiner, Monstructor.
One of his rejects, easily forgotten when compared to his prize, were a group of insectoid beasts, which although lacking a true gestalt consciousness, experienced a kind of (reinforcement effect).
Simply put, the more of them there were in close proximity, the smarter they became. Individually their intelligence withered, as they became more reliant on swarming together as a hive.
Abandoned by their creators, they found refuge beneath the surface of Cybertron, lurking in the deep, cavernous tunnel system.
In the pre-war period of the Senate, as the Decepticon movement started to blossom, a few members of the Insecticons found refuge amongst it. Often being taken in as mere fodder in their underground gladiatorial matches, many actually became proud members of the faction. Some, less intelligent ones became tools, being used to perform primitive forms of mnemosurgery with their feeding mouth-parts.
The Decepticon leader, Megatron, had always been obsessed with the science of combination. And when he had abandoned many of his other routes through the war (the loss of his chief Scientist and apprentice to Jhiaxus, Shockwave, and the apparent destruction of Monstructor chief among them) he turned his attention to the Insecticons.
While not a true gestalt, their intelligence was a useful tool for war, and he had the Scientist Deluge attempt to break them through into a true hive-mind.
His results were mixed.
Instead of a hive mind, he instead produced a swarm of thousands near-mindless monoformer drones and three Insecticons gifted with all the neural circuitry their compatriots lacked.
One of them, Bombshell, proved an absolute genius, creating many battle strategies that unleashed devastation against the Autobots during the surge. He also became a master of mnemosurgery, able to alter memories to create sleeper agents to work against the Autobots.
He even helped turn Sunstreaker, making him betray Optimus Prime by turning already traumatic memories into a living hell.
The rejects were unleashed upon Cybertron's surface, already a radiation soaked wasteland by then, which the swarm took to like it was paradise, feeding on the leftover scrap and devouring every drop of Energon they could find.
The swarm eventually met its end years later, when the Titan Metroplex returned to the world. They were crushed beneath the power of his arsenal, with only a small number making it to safety in the depths of the planet, returning to the ancient home of their precursors.
After the war ended, the remaining Insecticons became split, with some remaining true to Megatron's cause, while others sought service with more mercenary leaders such as Lockdown's group of Titan Hunters.
 
Unusual Powers: As with other forms of Cybertronian life, most Insecticons possess the ability to change between "robot mode" and an "alt mode." The Insecticons prefer multi-limbed insectoid modes based on the indigenous life of various alien worlds.
 
Weapons: Members possess fearsome teeth, claws, and feeding instruments. Many also possess firearms when in robot modes.
 
Not perfect, but hopefully suitable. Attempted an explanation their various appearances outside AHM. Also provides a useful explanation for the difference between Sunstreaker's memories and what we saw happen.

Side Burn
 
Real Name: N/A
Occupation: Velocitron Race Champion
Legal Status: Citizen of Velocitron
Place of Birth: Velocitron
Marital Status: Single (call him, ladies)
Known Relatives: X-Brawn (brother), Mach Alert (sister)
Group Affiliation: None
Current Base of Operations: Navitas, Velocitron
First Appearance: "Transformers: Robots in Disguise (2001)", episode 1, "Battle Protocol"
 
History: The Velocitronian known as Side Burn was born from a rare triple branched spark born from the hot spot carried by the Titan, Navitas. Both he and his two siblings, X-Brawn and Mach Alert, were brought on-line at different points in time, however, with Side Burn being activated last. As the "younger" sibling, he was constantly chasing after his two siblings; Mach Alert was the fastest of the trio, and X-Brawn the most technically inclined, which left Side Burn constantly feeling as though he was in their shadow.
 
These feelings turned into even greater frustration when Mach Alert opted to become a race marshall, overseeing the various rules and regulations of the many races going on on Velocitron, rather than becoming a racer themselves. Side Burn felt his sister was wasting her talents, which was especially aggravating when he'd been unable to establish himself. Seeking to rebel against his older sister and to fulfill his natural Velocitronian drive to race, Side Burn fell in with the underground racing circuits organized by Velocitronian criminals, Dirt Boss Downshift, and Blight.
 
The underground races were brutal, but Side Burn managed to make a name for himself, winning multiple races. Dirt Boss, who had been drummed out of the official racing circuits for multiple rule violations, came to resent the young racer, feeling that his spotlight was being stolen. He tasked Blight with switching Side Burn's fuel with a toxic form of synthetic energon, dubbed "Tox-En" by the nefarious physicist, which began to steadily poison and weaken Side Burn during his next race, leaving him at Dirt Boss's mercy. However, Side Burn would be saved when the race was suddenly interrupted by a raid from Mach Alert and the race marshalls. To her horror, Mach Alert found her brother, poisoned , heavily damaged, and nearly on the verge of spark failure.
 
Rather than admonish their sibling, Mach Alert and X-Brawn realized they'd partly driven their brother to this, and resolved to help with his recovery. Not only that, Mach Alert managed to convince Override to grant her brother a reprieve. Together, they helped Side Burn in his physical recovery, and before long, Side Burn managed to get back into racing shape. This time, he tried for the official circuits again, with X-Brawn serving as head of his pit crew and Mach Alert supporting him from the sidelines. After several disappointments, he finally qualified, and officially began his career as a major racer.
 
When contact was made with Cybertron, Side Burn was excited. He observed, but was unable to participate in, the race won by Blurr, which triggered in him an interest in other worlds. When space bridge access was opened up, Side Burn took every chance he could to visit his people's homeworld along with the other colonies, eager to meet new people and race new, interesting opponents.

Strength: Side Burn possesses average physical strength and above average speed and endurance befitting a Velocitronian racer.
 
Unusual powers: Side Burn shares the Cybertronian ability to transform between "robot" and "alt-mode". His alternate mode is a Velocitronian racer. He lost his left optic in the race that nearly claimed his life, and replaced it with a new optical unit that doubles as a speed radar.
 
Weapons: As a Velocitronian, Side Burn does not typically carry weapons. However, during his days in the underground racing circuit, he opted to carry a bowgun and a small energy pistol with a miniature bayonet for protection. He has kept them, but only carries them with them when going offworld. One might also say that his greatest weapon is his charm (that "one" being Side Burn himself; he actually has very poor luck with relationships).

"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."
