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.

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

The problem hinges are the ones around the pin the cheetah head is mounted on. They have a flat spot to fit along the torso flap hinges, which makes that bit really thin. As long as you're careful swinging that part in and out of position and don't just yank the cheetah head up, you should be fine.

I've always maintained that if WFC runs its course without more S01E01 Cybertronian modes it will be a huge missed opportunity.

I feel they really missed the mark with SIEGE in this respect, having the chance to do that 'Bee, Wheeljack, and Jazz.

Fingers crossed it finally comes to fruition, but I'm not hopeful.

But it appears like it’s going to be a Target exclusive so...good luck with THAT.

 

At this point, I’m fairly certain Target has made everyone’s shitlist between GI Joe’s Cobra Island, the purported Red Card T-Wrecks, this, and the Clone Wars exclusives.

There was a rumor of a Cybertronian Bumblebee in the Bee line, IIRC. That and an Animated Bee.

And Hasbro probably still has the old War for Cybertron (The Game) Bumblebee.  Or the Legends version.

 

I’m expecting it to be a repaint of the WfC Netflix Bumblebee

Anyone figured out anything useful to do with Ractonite's torso when it's not connected to any other parts? I found him Friday and while the two normal modes are pretty much fine, I fine him lacking as a modular weapons-type toy as compared to Paleotrex. Not looking forward to Tricranius as much anymore, though his deco really helped sell me more than his being a modular toy.

I really wanted four distinct molds for each of my four Bone Age cavemen to ride, but it looks like we only have three.  But I think for the 'fire clan' one (they have little tattoos on their arms), I can set him on Metlar-Saurus holding a fire effect-part and he will work fine.

Tricranius is a Triceratops instead of Ractonite's Styracosaurus, so different-ish?  And don't forget the Vertebreak mold, though it's a bit small for a 3" figure to ride.

 

Still, I would love to see this concept continue, though I'm not betting on it past Kingdom.

I don't even have a local TRU to get the target exclusives from. And their site doesn't offer free shipping to my location anymore. The Cone heads and Ironhide/Prowl sets are the only Amazon exclusives I have ever had any issues with.
