Ever notice Kath SOucie's Janine in the later episodes of Real Ghostbusters sounds like Tara Strong's Sari Sumdac?

@  Maximus Ambus : (28 September 2020 - 02:10 PM)

I wish they were more universal like Beast Wars, Animated or Prime and as professionally done,

@  Maximus Ambus : (28 September 2020 - 02:06 PM)

The Netflix shows are done for adults, the Generation toyline is for adults who grew up with G1.

@  -LittleAutob... : (28 September 2020 - 12:43 PM)

Whatever happened to WFC Earthrise being a kids show X'D

@  wonko the sane? : (28 September 2020 - 11:43 AM)

Cool, my last tablet couldn't run it, and I stopped caring by the time I got the new one. So thanks!

@  Otaku : (28 September 2020 - 11:27 AM)

There are crossover characters, but the amount and distribution... Marvel Vs Capcom this ain't.  If @wonko the sane? my bad!

@  Otaku : (28 September 2020 - 11:21 AM)

I've been playing for *checks account* 1002 days, 23 hours.  So, by 2021, it will have been three years.  I think it takes place in its own continuity, largely inspired by G1 but borrowing from other places.

@  Otaku : (28 September 2020 - 11:19 AM)

@wonko the sane? Can only speak for Earth Wars, but so few they're easy to forget.

@  wonko the sane? : (28 September 2020 - 07:39 AM)

Didn't they already do the across universes thing in that tablet game?

@  Demovere Xeno : (28 September 2020 - 05:30 AM)

Also, make the setting an amalgamation of different Transformers series, rather than based on a specific one. Bring in things like 'Sentinel Major' as the primo Autobot jerk, and sleek car mode Vehicons as the Decepticons' basic grunt.

@  Demovere Xeno : (28 September 2020 - 05:27 AM)

KT just needs to incorporate the vehicle modes into the combat system, like Platinum did for Devastation, so they're for more than just wheeling it across the battlefield. =P

@  Demovere Xeno : (28 September 2020 - 05:25 AM)

Transformers: Warriors of Cybertron! =D

@  Tm_Silverclaw : (28 September 2020 - 05:15 AM)

@  TheMightyMol... : (28 September 2020 - 04:50 AM)

@  Demovere Xeno : (28 September 2020 - 04:40 AM)

Man, I just want another Devastation game... =(

@  NotVeryKnightly : (28 September 2020 - 01:53 AM)

Aren't TFs way more varied than Joes, as far as they'd work in gameplay? Like, Omega Supreme is vastly different from Bumblebee.

@  unluckiness : (27 September 2020 - 10:16 PM)

Hell, ripoff Super Robot Wars withTFs

@  unluckiness : (27 September 2020 - 10:16 PM)

IDK they could make something like FF tactics or Fire Emblem ripoff with Robots and i'd buy it

@  Steevy Maximus : (27 September 2020 - 09:43 PM)

See, I feel GI Joe (with it's varied cast) is a better fit for a strategy game, where as Transformers feels more suited for a shooter.

@  Maruten : (27 September 2020 - 08:28 PM)

I might give them points for making a strategy game if it's actually a good strategy game.

@  wonko the sane? : (27 September 2020 - 07:48 PM)

I mean, points for making a strategy game instead of third person shooter, but: urrrrgggg. Cyberverse.

@  wonko the sane? : (27 September 2020 - 07:47 PM)

A transformers game for the switch? *checks* Urrrggg... cyberverse...

@  Steevy Maximus : (27 September 2020 - 06:28 PM)

October will be a big month for Hasbro fans: Zoids, GI Joe AND Transformers all have brand new console games. All on the Switch at that!

@  wonko the sane? : (27 September 2020 - 09:04 AM)

At least in animated he was more driven than just "loyal bootlick".

@  unluckiness : (27 September 2020 - 08:29 AM)

Oof, That's a huge downgrade

@  Maximus Ambus : (27 September 2020 - 02:35 AM)

After rewatching Animated Sound and Fury, in my head canon Titans Return Soundwave is that Soundwave.

@  wonko the sane? : (26 September 2020 - 04:09 PM)

On an unrelated note: I just got the BBTS email about kingdom pre-orders... and even the stuff I don't want I'm perfectly willing to get if it means I can have the rest of it.

@  wonko the sane? : (26 September 2020 - 04:08 PM)

It's digimon. So first one, then the other.

@  TheMightyMol... : (26 September 2020 - 12:53 PM)

50/50 odds, it's either a helicopter with limbs, or a scantily-clad human with heli blades on their back. If female, 90% odds on the second one.

@  NotVeryKnightly : (26 September 2020 - 12:39 PM)

I read that as "Helicoptermon" and wondered what kind of Digimon that was.

@  Bass X0 : (26 September 2020 - 12:35 PM)

Helicopter-mom, transform!

@  Maximus Ambus : (25 September 2020 - 11:58 PM)

Aw I scratched the hood of my 35th anniversary Bluestreak. Fortunately he's in robot mode a lot.

@  TheMightyMol... : (25 September 2020 - 05:04 PM)

@  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)

BBTS just put a Preorder up for Earthrise Battlemasters Wave 3.

https://www.bigbadto...nDetails/132145

It's Doublecrosser (New 2-headed Ramp bot)
and repacks of Soundbarrier and Slitherfang. So all 3 road/ramp bots in one assortment.

-ZacWilliam, couldn't pass up ordering a set of those to round out my little connected base city.


Sweet! Glad I waited now.

I wonder if it's be easy to switch its head with the Seige head...

I didn't even wait; I've just literally never seen Soundbarrier in a store and he's like never on Amazon or Target or anywhere.

 

$20 for all 3 road dudes in one fell swoop? Yes please!

If Reprolabels makes a sticker kit that colors and evens out all the van windows, Ironhide *might* be salvageable as long as I never look at his back end. I wish Prowl were the remold of Siege and Ironhide was a new mold. I feel like a remold Prowl could have pulled it off a lot better than this Ironhide...

Catalog photos showed Bluestreak being blue, an unused coloration that implies his name and characterization may originally have been intended as a pun.

I added on Impactor's mini-pistol and POTO Jazz's silver gun as they worked better with Bluestreak than their original owners.

 

Edit:  Ok, I just checked, this is not actually a viable option at all.  So much for my 'Blue Bluestreak exists if you look" joke, according to ebay it usually doesn't...I wouldn't have expected a Combiner Wars mold to be hard to find.

https://idioms.thefr...e a blue streak

 

The original Diaclone toy was alternatively blue with a silver hood, and silver with a black hood. The package art for the G1 toy, the stock photos of the toy on the packaging, the instructions and the catalog included with all the 1984 toys all depict the blue version with a silver hood. There are even color guides of the character model for the cartoon that use the blue deco. Then Hasbro decided at the last moment to use the silver deco instead, but changed the hood from black to silver. While the color scheme used in the cartoon is based on the silver version, it retains the black hood.

 

There's a very good chance Bob Budiansky looked at the blue toy, thought up the name "Bluestreak", and then wrote the bio that made the name a pun. Then the color of the toy was changed, and the pun lost. It's highly unlikely that Budiansky came up with the bio first and then gave him a name after the bio, and the toy's originally intended colors didn't factor into it at all.

Jokes aside, yellow was indeed always intended to be his main color.

 

Though, he and Sideswipe were originally going to use each other's molds, making Tigertrack and Spin-Out more closely resemble the originally-intended versions of the two.

I think the concept of being educated and being able to educate is something that more people need more of in their lives.

No, we don't all know everything but we should spread and share that what we do know.

If I'm consistently misspelling a word, I would want and expect people to correct me as should I imagine all decent people who know the value of good literacy.

Its just arrogant laziness to know you're spelling a word incorrectly and not correct yourself or ignore the advice when people do tell you how to spell a word correctly.

Yes, but originally the Sideswipe mold.

Sideswipe was supposed to be red AND the Sunstreaker mold which explains the otherwise inexplicable red stickers on Sunstreaker.

Sideswipe was supposed to be red AND the Sunstreaker mold which explains the otherwise inexplicable red stickers on Sunstreaker.

The red stickers were also a carry over from the Diaclone version (the guy who would become Spinout). Hasbro didn't alter the color when they changed him to yellow. I'm not sure if they altered stickers for many other original deco guys. Skywarp certainly had all new stickers and he was a new deco guy.

But you already know all of that. :)

Anyone in the CT area looking, Target Manchester had 1 Scorponok, and 6 Fuzor + Blast Master and 6 Roller Force and Ground Hog just now. (I bought 1 of each Micro set, so 5 of each left up for grabs.)
