Multiplaying as in "playing with other people" or multiplaying as in "6 WoW accounts running at the same time"?

Oh no! Darkeklaw is multiplaying! (See birthday box)

In my Marvel comic canon the second wave of special teams were handpicked active robots whose experience would theoretically make more stable combiners, the Combaticons came from Cybertron, the Protectobots were imprinted from crystals explaining both Onslauhghts ancestry and First Aid's experience.

How long until IDW puts out an Optimus Pride Month comic?

@  Cyoti : (18 June 2021 - 03:32 PM)

Even with B5, it didn't follow its original 5-year plan. Summaries from the supplementary materials for the scriptbooks demonstrates that was originally planned was very different from the actual product. Sinclair's actor's departure seemingly changed the show to the point that the stuff with the Vorlons/Shadows, the Minbari and the ending were all changed. Mapping out a show years in advance is difficult because of changing bts stuff like writers/actors leaving the show or suddenly having to retool because of ratings/execs. No plan survives intact especially in a chaotic environment of television production.

@  Rycochet : (18 June 2021 - 11:27 AM)

To be like Babylon 5, you need to cram a 2 season story arc into one because you fear being cancelled, then get further seasons you have no more material for. You also need a spinoff which the network heads don't want and do everything in their power to kill it while it's on air.

@  wonko the sane? : (18 June 2021 - 10:33 AM)

The required effort is probably why we don't have babylon 6; TNG.

@  Dekafox : (18 June 2021 - 10:23 AM)

Everyone wants to be like Babylon 5 but no one wants to put in the effort

@  Nevermore : (18 June 2021 - 09:36 AM)

And then, after five years of hosting their own official podcast where they would answer fan questions and always encouraged their audience to pay attention to the mysteries, after the show had ended, they claimed the show was never really about the mysteries, it was all about the characters.

@  Nevermore : (18 June 2021 - 09:34 AM)

What really bugs me with "Lost" is that the producers had willfully negotiated a set end date with the network halfway through season 3 (the show ended with season 6, as planned) specifically so they could plan out the plot for the remainder of the show. Then... the plot wasn't resolved properly.

@  tigerhawk : (18 June 2021 - 04:17 AM)

By then I had lost interest in arc TV shows, I followed a few and got the impression they were just making them up as they went along. Seemed to be a trend starting with new Galactica and Lost though in actuality began with The X Files and has become a trope called 'The Chris Carter Effect'.

@  Nevermore : (18 June 2021 - 02:12 AM)

I think it was season 3 part 1 specifically, since they had two separate plot "arcs" for season 3.

@  Nevermore : (18 June 2021 - 02:11 AM)

They threw everything in there, with no clear story structure, no clear stakes, and characters flip-flopping wherever the episode's writer needed them to go for their half-baked plot.

@  Nevermore : (18 June 2021 - 02:10 AM)

Season 3 was the worst, with a terrible meandering random events plot.

@  tigerhawk : (17 June 2021 - 11:59 PM)

'save the cheerleader' then in season 3 he tears her skull open, scans her power and she simply heals. They didn't think any of it through.

@  Shockwave 75 : (17 June 2021 - 07:04 PM)

Well, you know Hollywood; if something's popular, run it into the ground!

@  Cybersnark : (17 June 2021 - 04:40 PM)

And then there was the Writers' Strike, which isn't the show's fault.

@  Cybersnark : (17 June 2021 - 04:40 PM)

Yeah, Sylar should've been, if not killed off, at least left to rest.

@  Nevermore : (17 June 2021 - 03:43 PM)

It never truly recovered from that.

@  Nevermore : (17 June 2021 - 03:43 PM)

Season 1 was good until the finale.

@  Paladin : (17 June 2021 - 09:37 AM)

because it sucked.

@  tigerhawk : (17 June 2021 - 08:58 AM)

Heroes was cancelled twice.

@  Nevermore : (17 June 2021 - 06:33 AM)

@  PlutoniumBoss : (17 June 2021 - 12:54 AM)

@  Maruten : (16 June 2021 - 07:13 PM)

Lucky there's a hero arriving in July.

@  Steevy Maximus : (16 June 2021 - 05:38 PM)

I think I've heard "I Need a Hero" more times this past week than I have in the past several years.

@  tigerhawk : (16 June 2021 - 12:41 PM)

Thanks to Earthrise I can recreate the end of Return of Optimus Prime part 1.

@  wonko the sane? : (16 June 2021 - 11:19 AM)

I wish they would do something like that here: but then it would become obvious in which provinces you're getting gouged.

@  Nevermore : (16 June 2021 - 10:42 AM)

Here in Germany, the price you see is the price you pay, tax included.

@  Nevermore : (16 June 2021 - 10:42 AM)

I always find it weaird hearing that stores in the US don't initially already taxes in their prices.

Now that you have seen this Bass XO, you must send it to five other Bass XOs or BassXO will come to you in a week and then you too will be BassXO.

Well. I was considering canceling the new MP Prime, and this clinched it. I'm content with MP 10. I'll put that cash towards Uni here (yay, now he's only $300! Tortured logic is the best logic).

So...does this mean Unicron and Cyberton mode Primus will be in scale...?

 

Shouldn't Unicron be smaller, then?

 

 

You could very well use Primus or the Death Star as Lithone or one of Cybertron's moons, though.

Same here.  I can't buy it, but I'm glad I live in a world where it exists.  Maybe my friend will get it and I can come over to see his. That's all I really want--to be able to glimpse this monster in person.

Is it me, or is the head sculpt based off the preliminary Unicron design they went with initially and used in a few scenes?
 
Unicron-3.jpg
 
I prefer the head sculpt on the Platinum Edition Unicron, honestly.
 
unicron-takara-head.jpg

I think they're splitting the difference between the two designs.  The face is the final one, the helmet's from the earlier one but decoed to match the final.
 
Hmm...  I say that, but he's missing his devil beard.  I think you might be right.  Can someone poke Hasbro on Twitter about it?
Oh what luck! There's a french fry stuck in my beard!

My only asks on this thing:

1) Devil beard option.  Needs my giant robot Satan viking, damn it.

2) Red window abs.  I will also accept high gloss metallic red paint, but would prefer weird windows.  I think this might be a handpainted one, though, so they very well could be clear.

I remember back in the late 90s hoping that Takara would do something similar for the BW Neo Unicron. I was willing, 20 years ago, to pony up $500 to get it made.

Now, I have a wife and kids. Mortgage payment. Other expenses. This is amazing, but Armadacron will have to do for me, despite my how badly I want this figure.

Eh, I figure this is one case like Ultra Magnus where it doesn't bother me that much since all that detailing kind of works to drive home the intended size of the thing, as opposed to, say, Chromia or Starscream where it's just a mess.
