Otherworld and The Star Lost aren't too bad for a boring three days off.

I've had to do fix fics for my own fix fics.

@  TheMightyMol... : (17 May 2021 - 02:19 PM)

"Fix fics" are their own entire category of fanfiction.

@  PlutoniumBoss : (17 May 2021 - 01:32 PM)

Is fanfic "fixing" an author's story? (Often it is, I think.)

@  Tm_Silverclaw : (17 May 2021 - 12:15 PM)

I don't think people repainting and such are nessicarly "Fixing" a toy, just modding it to their likes. The problem is when they go around claiming to have "Fixed' it, that I feel it becomes a problem.

@  CORVUS : (17 May 2021 - 08:41 AM)

"I was gonna buy some Toyhax labels for Earthrise Auto-Whatsit, but since I'd be disrespecting the artistic expression of the designers, I think I'll just forget the whole thing."

@  TheMightyMol... : (17 May 2021 - 06:41 AM)

Like, in general, not going into specific bands or covers. Because I could point out plenty of repainted toys I didn't like as much as the original, too.

@  TheMightyMol... : (17 May 2021 - 06:39 AM)

Is a musician covering a song "fixing" it?

@  Nevermore : (17 May 2021 - 05:15 AM)

So, then, isn't redecoing or retooling an existing toy also "fixing" someone else's art?

@  PlutoniumBoss : (16 May 2021 - 10:07 PM)

A toy is not on the same level as a piece of drawn art, true, but it is 100% an entertainment product.

@  Nevermore : (16 May 2021 - 05:05 PM)

A toy is an object of utility, Comparing that to a piece of drawn art is grossly ignoring the difference between the two. Also, you didn't answer my questions. Try again.

@  PlutoniumBoss : (16 May 2021 - 04:25 PM)

Part of the difference is that those covers are primarily one person's art. Sure, you probably have an inker and a colorist, but the lines and composition are one person. A toy however is a team design at pretty much all levels.

@  Cyoti : (16 May 2021 - 03:52 PM)

toymaking is a collaborative process, you have to make compromises and factories are going to get things wrong

@  tigerhawk : (16 May 2021 - 03:43 PM)

Earthrise had a few holes, Runamuck's legs YIKES!

@  NotVeryKnightly : (16 May 2021 - 03:37 PM)

I doubt that say, the designer for Kingdom Cheetor was happy about every bit of unpainted plastic on it.

@  Bass X0 : (16 May 2021 - 03:28 PM)

J Scott Campbell recently had his Spiderman cover "fixed" by someone online. A few weeks ago, someone on twitter "fixed" someone's Sonic the Hedgehog fan art where Sonic, Tails and Knuckles were drawn as humans. Both times and other times, the "fixer" gets called out and criticised as you shouldn't go around "fixing" someone else's art because its rude and disrespectful to the original artist. And I was thinking isn't "fixed your s*** for ya" exactly what toy customisers do?

@  Nevermore : (16 May 2021 - 02:28 PM)

Have you ever changed your car in any way whatsoever compared to the factory configuration, or are you leaving the designer's art unchanged in that case as well?

@  CORVUS : (16 May 2021 - 02:28 PM)

It's best not to ponder it too hard.

@  Nevermore : (16 May 2021 - 04:16 AM)

Bass X0, I really wonder sometimes how you come up with these random tangents apropos of nothing.

@  PlutoniumBoss : (16 May 2021 - 04:11 AM)

It's collaborative art.

@  NotVeryKnightly : (16 May 2021 - 04:07 AM)

Toys are subject to budget constraints, so its not like customizing would ruin the designer's vision or whatever.

@  Bass X0 : (16 May 2021 - 03:38 AM)

Isn't customising a toy just "fixing other people's art"?

That might actually be a fake noise they make electric cars make so pedestrians can hear them. Some cars even let you pick out what noise they make.

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.

ZacWilliam, are there 6 things we know coming that we havn't seen? Cone heads right? and say Prowl, Bluestreak and Hubcap. (Just trying to be pessimistic so that hopefully we see something more exciting and it's a cool surprise.)

Curious to see what leaked/rumored toys will be confirmed. Maybe a sneak at the next Titan? Name of third part of the trilogy?

Hubcap, Inferno, Thurst, Dirge, Ramjet, Runabout("Over-run").

 

GI Joe-wise, I hope it's acknowledgement of whatever the "retro" line is.

If I were to guess.

Probably more of the exclusives, and selects figures.

Save Earthrise wave 4 for maybe the online SDCC.

A Cobra Commander role-play helmet that transforms!  And if you transform it while wearing it, now it's a Five Nights At Freddy's Crossover, too!

 

Was the Transformers X Ninja Turtles a real thing or just someone's fan art?

 

On that note, maybe the Top Gun jet's robot mode?

Thundercracker/Skywarp, Hubcap, Ultra Thunderhowl, Maverick, Thrust, and Cyclonus.

 

Thunderhowl won't matter, this is collector shit and collectors aren't interested in them kiddie toys.  Cyclonus looks a bit far out and if he's part of a shift next year in Studio Series, we might not see it.  Thrust is a maybe given he'd apt to be a wave mate for Megatron.

 

I'm thinking more immediate items:

Thundercracker/Skywarp

Maverick 

Hubcap

"Alternate Universe" Optimus Prime

Maybe the Prowl/Ironhide pack

And whatever SDCC item that was planned.  Maybe a crossover with GI Joe given the relaunch of that brand?

 

Stuff dealing with the tail end of the year and next year will be relegated to whatever they replace SDCC with.
