I reject your canon and substitute my own

@  unluckiness : (25 June 2019 - 12:32 AM)

Answer: It doesn't matter because even if there was one, it was never relevant in S1 and it got blown up with his original body

@  PlutoniumBoss : (24 June 2019 - 10:55 PM)

Most people think Transformers canon is a series of discrete parallel lines, really it's more like a big ball of canony-wanony... stuff.

@  SHIELD Agent 47 : (24 June 2019 - 06:31 PM)

Hate to say this, but the simple answer is that you are thinking too hard and realistically, it does not matter.

@  TheMightyMol... : (24 June 2019 - 04:57 PM)

Don't tell me what to do.

@  Paladin : (24 June 2019 - 04:16 PM)

don't cross the streams.

@  tffan01 : (24 June 2019 - 03:03 PM)

Or is this what AVP meant when he said that condradictory streams formed the JG1 timeline?

@  tffan01 : (24 June 2019 - 02:25 PM)

I don't like that idea.

@  tffan01 : (24 June 2019 - 02:24 PM)

In Ask Vector Prime, it was mentioned that in the Beast Wars 2 universe, Convoys all have Energon Matrices and that when Optimus Primal from the Japanese Beast Wars stream was transported to the Beast Wars 2 stream, his history was subtly altered that he too possessed an Energon Matrix. What does this mean? That Beast Wars 2 is actually not canon to the Japanese Beast Wars?

@  MEDdMI : (24 June 2019 - 08:54 AM)

yeah, I've got a few others that I need to check out/get removed. The nose one is small but annoying since I hit it every time I blow my nose.

@  unluckiness : (24 June 2019 - 08:46 AM)

Try to get a histopath examination if it isn't too expensive over there. It's probably just a mole but I'd think certainty would be better.

@  MEDdMI : (24 June 2019 - 07:59 AM)

@unluckiness I know, plan to get it removed but gotta get an appt first

@  Gizmoboy : (24 June 2019 - 07:50 AM)

oops... typed that in the wrong field. :)

That is not a good thing, especially in the long term

@  MEDdMI : (23 June 2019 - 10:17 PM)

So who wants to hear about this mole on my nose that I keep scratching open

@  NotVeryKnightly : (23 June 2019 - 09:24 PM)

Yeah, it's kind of defeating the purpose of making political discussions more restricted if you're just gonna go at it elsewhere on this site.

@  Telly : (23 June 2019 - 07:06 PM)

that would probly fit better in the p & r thread. its there for things just like this

@  Nevermore : (23 June 2019 - 03:29 PM)

The citizens resisted by buying up all the town's beer reserves so the Nazis would have to stay sober the entire time.

@  Nevermore : (23 June 2019 - 03:28 PM)

Meanwhile, congratulations civil resistance, part 2: So a group of Nazis were holding one of their Good Old Times Reenactment festivals in a small East German town.

@  Nevermore : (23 June 2019 - 03:26 PM)

It's basically like an anti-Trump candidate winning Texas.

@  Nevermore : (23 June 2019 - 03:25 PM)

The mayoral elections of Istanbul are considered to be a key indicator for the political climate in the entire country.

@  Nevermore : (23 June 2019 - 03:24 PM)

This time, it was a landslide victory for the opposition's candidate.

@  Nevermore : (23 June 2019 - 03:23 PM)

After president Erdogan had a court revoke the results of the mayoral election of Istanbul after the opposition party's candidate had won by a small margin, the election was repeated today.

@  Nevermore : (23 June 2019 - 03:21 PM)

Congratulations, democracy part 1: Today is a historic day for Turkey.

@  Patch : (22 June 2019 - 06:11 PM)

Nah, he was one of the Lions

@  MEDdMI : (22 June 2019 - 04:45 PM)

Is he a Shellformer

@  Nevermore : (22 June 2019 - 12:38 PM)

Supposedly it's about that football player Calvin Johnson.

@  Pennpenn : (22 June 2019 - 07:03 AM)

I'm vaguely confused why there is a Nicki Minaj song in my youtube reccomendations, but even more confused as to why that song (which appears to be from an official account) is called "MEGATRON".

So which series is 90s American Godzilla?

@  Dekafox : (20 June 2019 - 03:12 PM)

So G1 Marvel would be Showa Transformers then

@  NotVeryKnightly : (20 June 2019 - 12:37 PM)

Yes.

@  RichardT1977 : (20 June 2019 - 12:05 PM)

Is it weeby of me to refer to the two IDW TF continuities as Heisei and Reiwa? I mean, the switchover almost perfectly lines up with the change of eras...

@  Tm_Silverclaw : (20 June 2019 - 10:35 AM)

I hate when the spicy version of something isn't spicy!

@  Pennpenn : (20 June 2019 - 08:43 AM)

I hate it when the spicy version of something is in almost identical packaging to the non-spicy version. Especially when I don't notice until I've got home.

@  TheMightyMol... : (19 June 2019 - 05:44 PM)

They make a lot of pills for that.

@  Nevermore : (19 June 2019 - 05:42 PM)

I got the results of the test back. I definitely have no sense of humor.

@  Paladin : (18 June 2019 - 05:59 PM)

so anyway how is your sex life?

@  TheMightyMol... : (18 June 2019 - 10:50 AM)

These jokes are tearing me apart.

@  unluckiness : (18 June 2019 - 08:55 AM)

Only if the customer reviews give it all high marks.

@  Patch : (18 June 2019 - 04:42 AM)

Are they going to call it "I-Did-Nawtflix?"

so it's somehow both a remake and a sequel AND a V for Vendetta knockoff.

Because when I think Rorschach, I think a dangerous cult.

the cult thing is, i figure, kinda easy to explain...obviously after the printing of his journal, in the conspiracy theory paper that he loved, some people took it as gospel and created a very "Charlotesville-esque" group based on him. that paper is already described as being kinda racist and crazy anyway...so it works.

 

I dunno...I love anything related to watchmen...it means a lot to me...so im really excited for this, I think its got serious potential.

This 'Cult of Rorschach' lot give me more Dark Knight Returns vibes than Watchmen. Like when the Mutant gang became the 'Sons of Batman'.

If this is a sequel story, there won't be very many Watchmen in it.

It looks like it's going to be really entertaining, exploring a scenario so far removed from what has come before that the consequence is unpredictable.

 

The series is going to be dogshit. I was talking about Alan Moore's reaction to this.

i get why people are down on Post- and/or Pre-Series Watchmen stuff. But for me? i love anything they slap that bloody smiley face on. But i'm not blind, deaf, or dumb...i know when somethings terrible, like the MINUTEMEN book from the Before event, and I know it wasn't totally loved but for me, the Rorschach book was pure fun and I loved the ride., it was bloody and pulpy, and had just the right amount of 70's grit to it.

 

I also REALLY love the extended directors cut of the movie, the very long one, with the newsstand and Black Freighter stuff put back in (I also will go to my grave believing Watchmen the movie has the greatest love making scene in movie history.) I feel like it was the one time Snyder got something even close to right.

 

I get fear and trepidation about a tv sequel mini-series...but then I want people to remember that its on HBO...the dang channel has True Detective, which has deep and both interesting and terrifying stories. Also it has Game Of Thrones, a super intertwined and intertangled story. If this Watchmen show is 1/10th the show they are it'll be so damn good.

 

(yes,I do have to try and convert the naysayers...sorry all =] )

It's a story of someone destroying/corrupting themselves while trying to do the "right thing" until they are as big a monster as what they were trying to fight/stop. Thus it provides narrative parallel to Ozmandias. It also gives us echoes of other comics genres and ways the industry could have gone (Deconstruction of the Subject and Medium being Watchman's bag) while being a chorus of sorts to this story.

-ZacWilliam, basically.

i tried to get my hands on this but was never able to. the 3 hour directors cut is enough for me

 

and i think the movies ending was better than the comic. a giant squid is ridiculous. manhattan possibly killing everyone makes more sense

Agreed. Veidt's plan in the film is far superior to the one in the comic.

I'm glad I wasn't the only one who felt the film plot worked a lot better and let him kill two birds with one stone (A believable, global threat in Manhattan while also removing Manhattan from any agency to stop him).
