@  wonko the sane? : (24 September 2020 - 02:15 PM)

Gnarly.

@  PlutoniumBoss : (24 September 2020 - 01:05 PM)

Beast Era, a blonde rat called Sunsqueaker.

@  TheMightyMol... : (24 September 2020 - 01:00 PM)

And then Knockout was in the wall again.

@  Sabrblade : (24 September 2020 - 12:53 PM)

Knockout: "Ooh, sorry, Lord Megatron. The correct word was... 'Decepticon'."

@  -LittleAutob... : (24 September 2020 - 11:15 AM)

Knockout: *while doing a crossword puzzle* Lord Megatron, whats a ten letter word for disappointment? | Megatron: ...... Starscream.

@  Maximus Ambus : (23 September 2020 - 01:20 PM)

@Bass X0 Shockwave did it.

@  TheMightyMol... : (23 September 2020 - 11:56 AM)

At least it's not Suntwerker.

@  wonko the sane? : (23 September 2020 - 11:19 AM)

I read that name as "suntweaker" the first time, and was terrified for a moment...

@  Bass X0 : (23 September 2020 - 03:41 AM)

Prowl did nothing wrong.

@  TheMightyMol... : (23 September 2020 - 01:50 AM)

Smashy, Stabby, Selfy, and Shieldy.

@  Xero Prime : (22 September 2020 - 08:52 PM)

RunFast, MuckyTrail, TrackBreaker and Sunstreaker

@  TheMightyMol... : (22 September 2020 - 06:16 AM)

Runamuck, Fasttrack, Sunstreaker, and Trailbreaker.

@  Nevermore : (22 September 2020 - 06:13 AM)

Cardboard and plastic.

@  Paladin : (22 September 2020 - 05:52 AM)

what's IN Wave 3, anyway?

@  Telly : (21 September 2020 - 06:35 PM)

i dont think theyre due for release until november. at least thats when target says ill get trailbreaker and sunstreaker. thought the wiki says theyre out in singapore

@  TheMightyMol... : (21 September 2020 - 06:01 PM)

Has wave 3 actually reached anywhere yet?

@  Maximus Ambus : (21 September 2020 - 04:40 PM)

A few more Bearimy's for Earthrise wave 3 to reach the UK

Hey, new to the boards

@  RichardT1977 : (20 September 2020 - 02:29 PM)

I had an idea for a Spiral Zone/Go-Busters crossover fanfic...

@  wonko the sane? : (19 September 2020 - 06:35 PM)

I loved what was there, and think it's pretty ripe for "renegades" style reboot.

@  Rycochet : (19 September 2020 - 03:13 PM)

It's a shame as I loved Spiral Zone, and the design from the Japanese Toyline of the same name are fantastic, I adore the monowheel motorbike.

@  Rycochet : (19 September 2020 - 03:12 PM)

Hasbro doesn't seem to have any interest in doing anything with the TV show, haven't greenlit any attempt to rerelease it, and there have been approaches, so I think it may be aother one of Tonka's legal carcrashes where everyone involved owns a piece and it's not really worth anyone sticking their neck out to claim ownership.

@  Steevy Maximus : (19 September 2020 - 01:47 PM)

I feel that homages and references would be a fun way to expand the GI Joe brand, and give a little love to lines that are unlikely to be acknowledged beyond such capacity.

@  Steevy Maximus : (19 September 2020 - 01:47 PM)

I was under the impression that Bandai was more the character design aspects, not story or characters.

@  Rycochet : (19 September 2020 - 12:55 PM)

Also isn't it in rights limbo, given how it's loosely based on concepts from a BanDai series much like GoBots?

@  Rycochet : (19 September 2020 - 12:52 PM)

We don't need a Spiral Zone reboot, in a decade or so we'll be living it.

@  wonko the sane? : (19 September 2020 - 12:49 PM)

Yeah, but it would fundamentally change the base premise of both gijoe and spiral zone. It's either not the world spanning threat it was, or the zone riders are backed up by a competent force. Either way, you compromise the context of both.

@  Steevy Maximus : (19 September 2020 - 12:19 PM)

Akin to what was done with Matt Tracker in 2008.

@  Steevy Maximus : (19 September 2020 - 12:18 PM)

Again, not a PURE transplant, but an integration of ideas and concepts into the world of GI Joe.

@  Steevy Maximus : (19 September 2020 - 12:18 PM)

@Wonko The Cobra Overlord, with help from Dr. Mindbender and Cesspool, develops machines capable of generating a mind-controlling fog. GI Joe stalwarts Flint, Airtight, Lifeline, and Psyche-Out are joined by Colonal Courage to infiltrate these zones and disable the machines. Figures would sport hostile environment suits (Eco warriors cross with Spiral Zone) and make new versions of the mono-wheel vehicles.

@  Maximus Ambus : (19 September 2020 - 09:39 AM)

Hasbroverse.2 with bought properties: Bravestarr, Ulysses 31, Galaxy Rangers, Shadow Raiders, Manta Force, Jayce and the Wheeled Warriors, Mighty Orbots, Jem and Bigfoot and the Muscle Machines. Seamless.

@  wonko the sane? : (19 September 2020 - 08:32 AM)

While acknoledging spiral zone would be pretty boss, I doubt they could actively integrate it into anything else: given the scale of the villains deeds.

@  Steevy Maximus : (19 September 2020 - 08:03 AM)

COPS, Spiral Zone, Shadow Strikers, Action Man, Centurions, MegaForce. They wouldn’t replicate the old lines, but simply acknowledging their existence would be nifty.

@  Steevy Maximus : (19 September 2020 - 08:01 AM)

I would love to see GI Joe become something of a “celebration of action figures”. Hasbro has SO MANY old action figure properties, and many could slot into the GI Joe umbrella with relative ease.

@  Otaku : (19 September 2020 - 12:04 AM)

G.I. Joe, CyberCOPS, and M.A.S.K. all seem like something that would work from Animated or Prime, though CyberCOPS might have been a bit trickier from Prime.

@  Sabrblade : (18 September 2020 - 11:02 PM)

Rik Alvarez originally wanted the last episode of Prime to spinoff into a new MASK reboot.

@  Otaku : (18 September 2020 - 08:19 PM)

The failed Hasbroverse reminds me how so many things could have been spun off from Transformers: Animated and (after that) Transformers: Prime.

@  ▲ndrusi : (18 September 2020 - 12:43 PM)

Requiem of the Wreckers was post-Revolution, but it was also, you know, a single issue.

@  NotVeryKnightly : (18 September 2020 - 11:06 AM)

But Roche didn't have a series to keep out from the crossovers since Sins of the Wreckers was before Revolution.

@  NotVeryKnightly : (18 September 2020 - 11:01 AM)

Oh wait, that post said Roche, not Barber.

@  Rycochet : (18 September 2020 - 10:46 AM)

And then seemed surprised nobody particlarly wanted it.

@  NotVeryKnightly : (18 September 2020 - 10:25 AM)

Wasn't Barber among the editorial guys that pushed for Hasbroverse?

@  Maximus Ambus : (18 September 2020 - 10:19 AM)

He did it possibly due to 616 Spider-Mans marriage reset between Civil War and Secret Invasion.

@  ▲ndrusi : (18 September 2020 - 09:20 AM)

Bendis kept a tight leash on Ultimate Spider-Man because it was mostly set far away from Earth?

@  -LittleAutob... : (18 September 2020 - 08:49 AM)

I'm learning so much-

@  Maruten : (18 September 2020 - 04:21 AM)

At its worst it was better than MASK, sure.

@  Maximus Ambus : (18 September 2020 - 02:15 AM)

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.

To unintentionally bring this somewhat back on-topic, one thing that disproportionately bugs me is people writing "Optimii". That would only make sense if his name were "Optimius". I've never studied Latin, but according to this, optimus is a genuine Latin word, and its legit plural is optimi.

I do wonder, though, what the correct collective noun for a group of Optimi is. A race? A resurrection? A paternity?

I liked when it wasn't literally the same G1 design every time.  Like, just keep the basics of the head and some variation of the chest windows, then mix up the rest and people will still buy it.  Hell, Armada Optimus Prime proved you only really need to keep the head design to make a recognizable Optimus.

It also makes it easier for those of us who don't want multiple Optimii in our collections and want to be able to repurpose them.

 

 

and for the rest that dont want another prime, it lets us skip a couple toys with each line

People talk about being tired of all the Optimi, but you don't hear so much about Megatra, even though there are a similar number. Maybe more, if you count the Galvatra!

P.S. A sanctimony of Optimi

That easy, Megatron doesn't really have much of a set alt mode compared to OP, who has been a truck aside from that time when he went Primal or ape! Megatron has been, a tank, a jet, a dragon, a Dino, a bat, a giant claw/hand, a helicopter, even a truck, even a car at one point I believe, so Megatron has been rather flexible when it comes to alt modes, thou everyone will grant that his most iconic alt mode is the Walter P5 pistol, but since then, there been certain rules and Hasbro & Takara have adapted to them, so Shockwave's alt mode went from a gun to a space ship or a tank, of course there was a satellite alt mode. If anything, I think of all of the TFs that are famous, Megatron had the greatest amount of different alt modes, then one time, he was a six changer, offically, thou it had a few extra modes that got used with GALVATRON!

i'm tired of megatron. i'm tired of starscream, the seekers, and soundwave. i am tired of rodimus and ultra magnus. but they're the bigs. thankfully, we've gotten a break from bumblebee.

 

what i loved about the deluxes of the prime wars trilogy was a great diversity of characters. that's not to say there isn't variety in the larger classes (i mean, seriously, leader class power of the primes was nuts), but there's also the same token characters. i will always understand the basic idea that hasbro needs them in the lines, but i'd like to see them saved for the end of at least one of the lines if hasbro is going to continue the trilogy idea.

Continuity, and the Multiverse in general, being a mess. I know the Shroud was implemented to sort of clean things up, but all the esoteric Club lore really muddied the waters on how everything functions. Universal Streams made things even weirder, because it placed things that were obviously meant to go together (like Headmasters and Super God Masterforce) and made them separate universes (or at least, that's how I understand it). This makes Multiverse lore nerds like me extremely frustrated, nevermind the already fractured state of continuities like the Marvel Comics, G1 cartoon, or Beast Era. A streamlined version of the Multiverse, free from any Universal Singularity or Stream nonsense would be ideal, but at this point I don't know how they'd fix things without further complicating the issue.

Streams are just a part of the larger network, they each just denote a single point in time rather than the whole.

 

In other words, one universe can be made up of multiple streams run together in a single line.

A streamlined version of the Multiverse, free from any Universal Singularity or Stream nonsense would be ideal, but it's honestly too late to really retcon these things out of the lore.

 

What, no, Headmasters and Super God Masterforce are both part of the JG1 stream (I don't care enough to figure out what Primax stream that actually is) they're not separate.

 

I mean, there's a system in place to give a timestamp to its release year to be more specific, but that doesn't make them separate universes.
