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.

8ass X÷ has hijacked this conversation.

@  Bass X0 : (12 June 2021 - 03:37 AM)

Its Bass X0. I named myself after my three favourite Mega Man characters - Bass, X and Zero. I did consider going with Vile Bass X0, but that would have been going too far.

I wouldn't mind a Hooligan but it would depend on if the contract allows Hasbro to use the mold outside of the initial product.

I would like to see the Hooligan redeco that's been proposed, just because that was such a weird color for a jet, it would make a great focus piece.

I wonder which customizer will do this first?

Pretty neat figure. Quite the surprise, maybe a minicon motorcycle included? 


So we have a couple potential ways this line develops. Old movies/shows that have iconic vehicles, and new movies, sequels, and reboots.  SO what's in development movie wise?




Why would we expect a repaint/remold? Ecto-1 hasn't had one.

Mad Max's Pursuit Special


Guess we already got a slew of Star Wars transformers.


A 1989 Batmobile would be cool.


Maybe the A-Team's van?

In the other thread I mentioned Maverick as a sky striker.

Changed my mind.

Tiger force sky striker.


A straight up Skystriker and especially a Night Boomer for me please!


Tiger Force Skystriker = Hooligan (Well, Tiger Force Skystriker is the pilot)

Or dino-teeth (as there's a lot of inaccuracies anyway I'm just going to call it that) for Botcon/TFSS homages of Terrorsaur and Fractyl.  I have Fractyl and it really was one of the best of that CW mold family.

CW Air Raid was also an F-14 (and consequently so were Terrorsaur, Fractyl, Guyhawk, Thrust, and Blackwing, and oh my god I have nearly all of those).

Something else about this toy:
Why isn't it in G1-Homage style packaging like Ectro-tron?

Ectotron was celebrating a shared anniversary, putting the two franchises on roughly equal footing re: what to promote. Maverick on the other hand is probably meant as hype for the Top Gun sequel, so that franchise gets to take the lead.

Yes I know it's broken. It's an HTTPS thing and I haven't gotten around to dealing with it yet.

It'd say that mold was F-14-adjacent. It's more like a twin-tailed Tornado (or as is frequently the case - a mixture of both).

Since there is a side discussion here about what we want to see in any future Crossovers figures, Im just going to say this:

Transformers x City Hunter
-the anime is super-80s, but they recently released a new movie, so its semi-current
-one of the main cast is voiced by Tessho Genda, the Japanese voice of Optimus Prime, so there is already some crossover in a way.
-plenty of vehicles to choose from: Ryo and Kaori have a Mini Cooper and a City Turbo 2, Saeko has her red Porsche, and Umibouzu has his jeep, or the semi he drove in one episode that looks suspiciously like a blue Optimus.

Christine as a Decepticon would be fantastic. 



Last time I watched Christine, my mind just constantly toyed with the idea of it being the Decepticon version of the Bumblebee movie. Christine being a Decepticon that gets stuck in car mode due to a battle damaging their t-cog; so when this kid starts trying to fix them, they go out of their way to make sure he stays focused on the job and takes out any 'distractions' he might have so they can get repaired and on with their mission.

Good picks if they're possible for upcoming Collaborations:


Back to the Future Delorean

Star Trek Enterprise

Batman Batmobile (probably won't happen with Mattel holding the DC license)

Scooby Doo Mystery Machine

Star Wars X-Wing or Millennium Falcon (but much better than old Star Wars Transformers toys)

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.

Because neither James or Kirk fit in with a similar flow to "Maximus"

Really, he should have been Starship Maximus, but what can you do.
