We can deport Yogi back to Canada now.

Jellystone National Pawk. A westful wetweat.

@  Rycochet : (01 July 2020 - 12:47 PM)

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.

@  Maximus Ambus : (01 July 2020 - 06:19 AM)

Thanks, dead person.

congratulations to all survivors of the first half of 2020.

@  wonko the sane? : (30 June 2020 - 10:21 PM)

21 for me, but after numerous repetitions I got it down to 17 and a half.

@  TheMightyMol... : (30 June 2020 - 06:16 PM)

I transform in six steps from human to human sitting on my ass at the computer and back again!

@  -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)

@  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?

@  wonko the sane? : (29 June 2020 - 07:51 AM)

*Gasp* Decepticons re-writing history to serve their own needs?!?!

@  Nevermore : (29 June 2020 - 05:48 AM)

The whole point of the DJD is that they're fanatical Megatron fanboys (especially Tarn) to the point of having their own headcanon taking priority of the actual canon, simply speaking.

@  TheMightyMol... : (29 June 2020 - 04:01 AM)

They didn't know the war was over until later. And then they denied it anyway.

@  PlutoniumBoss : (28 June 2020 - 10:47 PM)

"He's comin' right for us!"

@  Telly : (28 June 2020 - 08:40 PM)

was that even still in effect once the war ended?

@  TheMightyMol... : (28 June 2020 - 06:51 PM)

According to Roberts, soldiers can ignore the order to spare Whirl if he's directly threatening them. But mostly the DJD were out of their heads on Nuke and not really caring much at the time.

@  Xaaron : (28 June 2020 - 06:41 PM)

Also, they were hopped up on goofballs at the time.

@  wonko the sane? : (28 June 2020 - 06:06 PM)

Cause it was whirl. He opened his (non-existant.) gob at the just the right time to piss somebody off. Or, so I assume.

@  Maximus Ambus : (28 June 2020 - 06:00 PM)

If Whirl was off limits why did the DJD kill him?

@  TM2-Megatron : (27 June 2020 - 05:57 PM)

That sounds about right. I actually didn't get into it until the IQ expansion came out (which saved me a bit of expense)

@  Otaku : (27 June 2020 - 05:55 PM)

Weird question (and sorry for so many shouts): did Overpower really release in August of '95?  I could have sworn I attempted to play it with a classmate who shouldn't have been a classmate by that point.

@  Otaku : (27 June 2020 - 05:52 PM)

So... I don't have all my cards still somewhere. XP I still play Pokémon via the PTCGO, and I've been doing Card of the Days over on Pojo (on and off) since 2013.

@  Otaku : (27 June 2020 - 05:51 PM)

For both financial, personal, and practical reasons, all my collectibles had to go about 10 years ago: action figures, comic books, card games, RPG books, video games.

@  TM2-Megatron : (27 June 2020 - 05:48 PM)

I've still got all my cards, somewhere; I had a pretty decent collection. Still have the Japanese Digimon CCG, too. Glad I never got into Magic; way too pricey

@  Otaku : (27 June 2020 - 05:36 PM)

Technically, Overpower was my first TCG... except I never, ever learned how to play it, or understood that booster packs contained different cards than the Starter Decks.

@  Otaku : (27 June 2020 - 05:35 PM)

Can't forget what you didn't know in the first place.

@  Patch : (27 June 2020 - 05:28 PM)

Ah yes, Overpower. Who could forget the expansion where they added a new stat and you had to re-collect your heroes all over again.

@  TheMightyMol... : (27 June 2020 - 04:20 PM)

Counterpoint, when was the last time you spent money on Overpower?

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 Speedbreaker 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" sister 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.


I'm half asleep so I really shouldn't be trying to do editing, but those are the things that jumped out at me on my first pass. Looks good. I'll read it again later when I'm fully awake to make sure I didn't miss anything, unless Broadside or Daniel beat me to it.

He eventually learned of Apeface’s death at the hands of the Autobot combiner Superion. Vowing revenge for his friend’s death he promised to continue fighting for the Decepticons no matter what may happen.  After Megatron’s defection to the Autobots and the disbanding of the Decepticons, Snapdragon joined a splinter group headed by Hun-Gurrr and Snaptrap. He later took part in the occupation of the Temptorian capital Sensensica with the same group. During this occupation, Snapdragon was beaten by the Autobot forces of the Lost Light and imprisoned aboard the ship until its return to Cybertron. Snapdragon broke out alongside the other imprisoned decepticons, taking part in a raid on Megatron’s trial and once again, was relegated to an Autobot punching bag and subsequently reincarnated.

 

Snapdragon learned about Megatron's defection.....before Snapdragon returned to Cybertron whereupon Megatron defected?

 

Also, the Decepticon uprising on Cybertron took place in roughly the same numbered issues as the liberation of Temptoria. How could Snapdragon have gotten offworld all the way to Temptoria that fast?

Updated Version, gave the history section a major overhaul.

Snapdragon

Real name: Snapdragon

Occupation: Decepticon warrior

Legal status: Citizen of Cybertron with a criminal record

Place of birth: Unknown region of Cybertron

Marital status: Single

Known relatives: None

Group Affiliation: Decepticons

Current base of operations: Unknown prison on Cybertron

First appearance (historical): The Transformers episode “The Rebirth Part 1

First appearance (this continuity): The Transformers: More Than Meets The Eye #12

 

History: Snapdragon joined the Decepticons after a long stint of bad luck. He had fallen upon hard times after and desperately needed some shanix to keep himself afloat. His close friend Apeface persuaded him to be a test subject in an experiment held by a group of scientists examining the limitations of organic alt-mode scanning. Unbeknownst to Snapdragon the test was completely illegal and in reality there was no pay as well as a lack proper safety precautions. The experiment went awry, one of the creatures broke loose from its bonds and attacked Snapdragon in the midst of the scan. He and the creature were merged together, permanently granting Snapdragon a third bestial form. The scientists fled from the laboratory leaving Snapdragon and the other subjects behind.

 

Snapdragon was left with no money and an outcast from Functionalist society, his dragon mode viewed as completely pointless. Despite this, his strength and size led to him being hired as a personal bodyguard the infamous crime boss Thunderhoof. He served in this position for many years until Thunderhoof's compound was raided by Cybertronian law forces. Snapdragon managed to escape with his life and freedom. Around this time, the Decepticon movement was gaining considerable traction and seeing an opportunity, Snapdragon decided to join the Decepticon cause alongside many others.

 

Snapdragon was placed under Scorponok’s command for most of the Great War. Over time the other Decepticons learned that fighting alongside Snapdragon was was not as pleasant as they assumed. Despite his considerable strength and intellect, Snapdragon is hindered by that fact that he is the most lazy and unmotivated being in the entire universe, causing him to be extremely ineffective in battle and putting himself and his fellow Decepticons into dangerous situations. The last straw was during the Third Vorsk Offensive, when he failed to report to his post during a crucial defense of a weapons depot. The depot was evacuated and Snapdragon was left behind. Snapdragon somehow managed to stay alive, his mind slowly succumbing to the rage and primal instincts of the creature he took the form of. He was eventually found by a Decepticon search team but by then, the damage had already been done.

 

Snapdragon later joined a splinter group headed by Hun-Gurrr and Snaptrap. He took part in the occupation of the Temptorian capital Sensensica with the same group. During this occupation, Snapdragon was beaten by the Autobot forces of the Lost Light and imprisoned aboard the ship until its return to Cybertron. Upon returning, Snapdragon broke out along with the other imprisoned Decepticons, taking part in an attempted rescue mission of Megatron during his trial. The rescue failed, and he was re-incarcerated.

 

Height: 35’

Weight: 18 tons

Eyes: Red

Hair: None

 

Strength level: While Snapdragon possess immense strength for a Cybertronian of average size, he is simply not motivated enough to use it.

 

Unusual power: Snapdragon possesses the normal Cybertronian ability to change from “robot” and “alt-mode”. However, Snapdragon is a triple-changer and thusly possesses two-alt modes instead of one. His modes are a mechanoid dragon and a stealth jet.

 

Weapons: Snapdragon uses a pair of hand held blasters that fire gyroscopic disruptor bolts. When not using these weapons, he can use his dragon mode’s carbon-steel teeth and claws to tear his enemies apart.

I want to draw some stuff for this, though I don't know what on the reserved list is art dibs vs writing dibs.

(checking the thread, looks like the ones that really stood out to me got called regardless)

 

Can I claim Brainstorm? Dunno if we need to focus on that deadline or if this project's a bit more free-form.

Well, if you only want to draw Brainstorm, you can go ahead and do so and we will keep it on file for when someone writes his profile.

The claimed characters are all referring to people writing their profiles. The priority characters that need art of course are the ones that have been claimed, so you can choose from there.

As Daniel mentioned, the claimed characters list is just for those who are writing the profiles (we should make that clear in the post). So you can pretty much claim whoever you want to draw from that list or any IDW character (ones that haven't been done in the original Sourcebook that is).

 

If you want to get do something for Issue #2, just let us know. We have a list of characters that have been selected for the issue that need some artwork. As for the project, it's pretty much free-form. That deadline of the 22nd is just for those that want to get make it in for Issue #2.

Sweet! I should probably touch base with Noid'.

 

I was always going to have Shokaract be associated with Unicron, but Depth Charge and Rampage appearing as Maximals has thrown a monkey wrench into my plans for them as Eukarians. I'm...still trying to wrap my head around how to proceed, especially with each issue of OP and Unicron throwing chaos into the little corner of the continuity I thought was safe to develop.
