*ahem* 4th of July....

@  ▲ndrusi : (04 July 2020 - 08:14 AM)

Nothing of importance has happened before, and nothing of importance will happen again.

@  Maximus Ambus : (04 July 2020 - 08:12 AM)

Nothing of importance happened today.

@  Telly : (03 July 2020 - 09:54 PM)

i want a "i survived 'rona and all i got was this lousy t-shirt"

@  TheMightyMol... : (03 July 2020 - 03:42 PM)

Slogan for 2021: "I Lived, Bitch."

@  -LittleAutob... : (03 July 2020 - 03:23 PM)

They should make the next book in the Survivors series 'I SURVIVED CORONA VIRUS 2020'

@  -LittleAutob... : (03 July 2020 - 03:23 PM)

YEEEE I'M A SURVIVOR-

@  Nevermore : (03 July 2020 - 06:59 AM)

Probably gonna assemble Devastator after work.

@  Nevermore : (03 July 2020 - 06:58 AM)

Ooooh. Overload arrived. He's surprisingly fun.

@  Bass X0 : (02 July 2020 - 04:00 PM)

@  Cyoti : (01 July 2020 - 12:51 PM)

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)

what next? YELLOWSTONE?

@  Nevermore : (01 July 2020 - 05:46 AM)

@  Bass X0 : (01 July 2020 - 05:06 AM)

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

@  -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)

Pft.

@  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.

With the precedence of Siege Deluxe Barricade, and Unicron Trilogy versions, can we hope to see more movie-based or other-continuity characters G1-ified in Generations, including fan favorites such as Blackout, Shatter, Dropkick, Crosshairs, or Airachnid from Transformers Prime?

Do "can we hope to see [things you haven't announced]" questions ever get helpful answers? Hasbro avoids acknowledging leaks so I assume that asking them won't prompt them to suddenly jump ahead of their announcements schedule.

My understanding is that, at the very least, if something isn't getting released, it puts it in the air that it's something fans are interested in for the future, particularly if a lot of people ask. They've hinted that stuff like Overlord has happened because of that.

Would be great if the entire list of questions Allspark asks Hasbro isn't answered with "stay tuned", though.

 

 

I kiiinda want to ask about those Siege badges still, like what are the names of all the different units and divisions... but that's not exactly the type of thing to spring on some random convention rep.

(Maybe somehow request a way we can make our own, like an on-site ap or clear files or something? I mean that's a "stay tune" but still.)

 

 

Maybe...

Starscream likes cats and Thundercracker has a pet dog, does Skywarp have a favorite animal?

Why can't Hasbro spread their releases out a little more evenly over the year?
January through July was a ghost town.
August through October sudden became kidney selling season, between new waves of Siege, Studio Series, Cyberverse, and Botbots,
Four Amazon exclusives, four target exclusives, four Walmart exclusives, six Selects on Pulse, limited time preorders for Star Convoy and the Seacons, Omega Supreme, mp 44, and Unicron all hitting at once, right smack between sdcc and nycc and the Grim Spectre of Christmas looming overhead, how do they expect us to afford all of this?

if some of this stuff came out during the January-July dry spell we wouldn't be so overwhelmed.

As bizarre as it may seem, they don't actually expect people to buy everything and whether or not any of us can afford it is not their problem.  


Fall of Cybertron will blow your mind. That is all.

Any future plans to release them?

Here's a (hopefully) easy one to ask at Toy Fair:

What's up with the packaging for 2020 Cyberverse toys alternatively identifying the new subline as "Battle for Cybertron" or "Bumblebee: Cyberverse Adventures"? Are those supposed to be to concurrent sublines? Or was one an early working name that made it onto some toys' packaging, while the other toys have the final name that was chosen at the eleventh hour?

What is the name of this Autobot Unit? The one Slamdance, Roadhandler, and Swindler are part of, and is presumably the Autobot version of the Decepticon Espionage Unit.

Will you ever be savvy enough to work with animation studios who can get a Generations cartoon to an audience during the span of its particular toyline? Looking for all those cool Combiner Wars toys I saw on TV sure was useless during Titans Return, and now that Earthrise is out, I sure am excited for the possibly-upcoming Siege cartoon!

Maybe G1 season 5 will come out soon so we can move all those shelfwarming 1988 toys.
