At it's worst it still stomped all over the failed Hasbroverse. Roberts and Roche kept their respective series well out of that one for the same reasons Bendis kept a tight leash on Ultimate Spider-Man when Loeb and Miller wanted greater control for Ultimatum.

@  Maruten : (17 September 2020 - 06:37 PM)

That's so accurate it's physically painful.

@  Rycochet : (17 September 2020 - 02:05 PM)

The Red Dwarf of Transformers? An interesting, innovative and genuinely funny series that descended into a self referential mess of cliches that continues long after it should have been put out to pasture and rendered nerly everyone thoroughly unlikeable? That seems about right.

@  Bass X0 : (17 September 2020 - 01:59 PM)

MTMTE and Lost Light are the Red Dwarf of Transformers stories, as opposed to the others which are more like Star Wars and Star Trek.

@  Kalidor : (17 September 2020 - 01:37 PM)

Anyone in CONUS want a Skylynx for $100 shipped?

@  Maximus Ambus : (17 September 2020 - 01:34 PM)

Maybe an acquired taste in that's in that it's from a fan raised on the UK run where Transformers wasn't taken so seriously in many stories, especially some Earthforce standalones.

@  Paladin : (17 September 2020 - 09:47 AM)

so, terrible?

@  ▲ndrusi : (17 September 2020 - 09:26 AM)

Yeah I think at that point Lost Light is just the '86 movie without the soundtrack.

@  NotVeryKnightly : (17 September 2020 - 02:28 AM)

So, exctly what Triangleman just said.

@  Bass X0 : (17 September 2020 - 12:36 AM)

A few of the same characters.

@  ▲ndrusi : (17 September 2020 - 12:07 AM)

Now having actually read Galaxies #10, I don't actually see what it has in common with Lost Light at all besides featuring Ultra Magnus, Chromedome, and a spaceship.

@  ▲ndrusi : (16 September 2020 - 05:33 PM)

So, it's exactly like Lost Light, then.

@  Bass X0 : (16 September 2020 - 01:52 PM)

What if Lost Light was stripped bare of its charm and humor? Galaxies #10 is the answer.

@  ▲ndrusi : (16 September 2020 - 01:49 PM)

I didn't mean "*exactly* 15 years ago and no other time."

@  NotVeryKnightly : (16 September 2020 - 12:27 AM)

I mean, the comment was about a linewide gimmick of 15 years ago, not a gimmick only present in a minority of toys from that year.

@  Maximus Ambus : (16 September 2020 - 12:14 AM)

I'd like a western take on the UT for it's twentieth, like a annual CG or anime movie on Netflix that is a condensed retelling similar to the film Macross/Robotech: Do You Remember Love.

@  Maximus Ambus : (16 September 2020 - 12:11 AM)

Giant Planet had them, Energon had a few. I've been disappointed in Siege for not having something for the Micromasters, Earthrise has with the base bots but they've been wasted here.

@  NotVeryKnightly : (15 September 2020 - 10:47 PM)

Wasn't 15 years ago Cyber Keys rather than Minicons?

@  Steevy Maximus : (15 September 2020 - 09:38 PM)

By and large, even the worst Minicons have some unique engineering or design elements. The nostalgia factor aside, Micromasters got pretty samey after you got several, especially the "proper" 89 series.

@  unluckiness : (15 September 2020 - 07:13 PM)

There's certainly a load of crummy ones to sift through

@  TheMightyMol... : (15 September 2020 - 05:29 PM)

Or both. There's some overlap.

@  wonko the sane? : (15 September 2020 - 03:19 PM)

People either hated minicons or became completely addicted to them.

@  ▲ndrusi : (15 September 2020 - 03:17 PM)

A properly-planned theme, or as people called it 15 years ago, a stupid linewide baby toy gimmick that ruins the toys.

@  SHIELD Agent 47 : (15 September 2020 - 01:39 PM)

Look on the bright side: at least Kingdom has a properly-planned theme to its name unlike Power of the Primes being a hilariously transparent junk drawer for the PWT, and with letdown Prime toys to boot.

@  -LittleAutob... : (15 September 2020 - 01:33 PM)

Oh that makes sense-

@  wonko the sane? : (15 September 2020 - 01:32 PM)

To renew their copyrights on all their names, characters and series.

@  -LittleAutob... : (15 September 2020 - 01:32 PM)

Strange.

@  Maximus Ambus : (15 September 2020 - 01:08 PM)

War for Cybertron trilogy is a strange thing, from pre Earth to Earth to Beast Wars.
What was their plan again?

@  Bass X0 : (15 September 2020 - 12:40 PM)

Fall! FALL!! I would have waited an eternity for this; it’s Autumn, Prime...

@  Steevy Maximus : (15 September 2020 - 11:22 AM)

Wow...harsh truths!

@  Trpodeca : (15 September 2020 - 07:29 AM)

Saw Age of Extinction. Not Rise of Skywalker 10/10

@  wonko the sane? : (13 September 2020 - 05:14 PM)

So not a murderer, just a cheapass. Wanted the whole kit for the value of the batteries.

@  wonko the sane? : (13 September 2020 - 01:41 PM)

You can't force other people to sell; ao despite abundance the prices are high. I'm just a small scale hobbyist, I'm not looking to cash in just help other folks with their... uh, passion.

@  Rycochet : (13 September 2020 - 01:28 PM)

It's like diamonds, artificial rarity boosting the price,

@  wonko the sane? : (13 September 2020 - 01:25 PM)

I call bull carp on that. There's a HUGE secondary market, and gently used pieces go for tens of thousands.

@  Rycochet : (13 September 2020 - 01:24 PM)

They lose a lot of their value when not mint in sealed body.

@  wonko the sane? : (13 September 2020 - 01:04 PM)

I could probably stand to part with 2 or 3 of them. I've been collecting them for years anyway.

@  Rycochet : (13 September 2020 - 11:45 AM)

Coming soon to kijiji, wonko's kidney.

@  wonko the sane? : (13 September 2020 - 11:37 AM)

I threw a bunch of lawn and garden tools up on kijiji, today someone messaged me and said they wanted them all. They haven't even tried to haggle or anything. I suspect I'm about to be robbed or otherwise ripped off.

@  Classic Cybe... : (11 September 2020 - 11:03 AM)

Proud dad moment: my 6 year old daughter telling her 3 yr old brother that Prime is the leader because he has the matrix, but Hot Rod gets it next.

@  Paladin : (11 September 2020 - 10:50 AM)

and not just the cthulhu episode....

@  Maximus Ambus : (11 September 2020 - 07:04 AM)

The Real Ghostbusters is better then I remember it, sometimes genuinely creepy.

@  Maximus Ambus : (10 September 2020 - 02:18 PM)

Years later Geewunners went "Trukk not munky!"

@  -LittleAutob... : (10 September 2020 - 12:17 PM)

We are wimpz

@  wonko the sane? : (10 September 2020 - 10:12 AM)

Thats ork talk...

@  TheMightyMol... : (10 September 2020 - 08:19 AM)

Now go look for "HUMANZ R WIMPZ".

@  Maximus Ambus : (10 September 2020 - 06:46 AM)

And just when Runabout was unveiled. COINCIDENCE? Hey I have a ad campiagn for them! Nowhere is sacred!

@  Bass X0 : (09 September 2020 - 05:17 PM)

so there is graffiti near work which says "F*** THE MATRIX!" and "FTBR". If I did graffiti myself (I don't), I'd change it to FIBRIR.

@  -LittleAutob... : (09 September 2020 - 02:04 PM)

Yessssss

@  Maximus Ambus : (09 September 2020 - 01:00 PM)

Actually we could easily get the CW constructicons and TR Galvatron in Studio Series like Cogman. I still hope Kingdom Galvatron is him with COMBAT support either as Megatron in Galvatron armor or Energon Galvatron who is G1 Galvatron with detachable wings and particle cannons.

You know, to be honest, I've only ever had it once several years ago. No buzz, just a dull headache. It might have been cheap stuff or something, but it wasn't a great experience.

But with all the Usagi Yojimbo I've been reading lately, I'm kinda wanting to try it again.

Had about 3 round of Tea last night and woke up feeling like a new man. Little tired but that's from something else last night.  I think I am going to stick with this mix next time I get sick and just skip the cold and flu meds.

Hopefully it'll be completely gone by the time you go to the Ren faire. Nearly everyone's been getting sick here, too. After 2 days of feeling crappy and 3 of feeling a bit better, I'm almost normal again.

Glad to hear you're feeling better. I'm almost fine aside from some minor congestion. We are going onto Sunday and here's hoping the weather holds up as its been raining for awhile here.

Holy Hell if it just had one G I would swear it was made for us. I love it GSO. Where did you find that at?

I was surprised with a surprise B-day last night that turned into a 5 hour need war mixed with a lot of drinks cake and ice cream. I'm nursing a minor hangover at a kids party at a yogurt shop.

I think first tec could you use GSO's post above as the answer to the thread if that's what it's called. I would do it but tec-nic-ally it's still your thread.

 

But year a 5 year celabration sounds very much in order. I'm gonna have to come up with some games and drinking games for us drinkers.
