@  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)

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

@  TheMightyMol... : (21 September 2020 - 06:01 PM)

Hey, new to the boards

@  RichardT1977 : (20 September 2020 - 02:29 PM)

I had an idea for a Spiral Zone/Go-Busters crossover fanfic...

@  wonko the sane? : (19 September 2020 - 06:35 PM)

I loved what was there, and think it's pretty ripe for "renegades" style reboot.

@  Rycochet : (19 September 2020 - 03:13 PM)

It's a shame as I loved Spiral Zone, and the design from the Japanese Toyline of the same name are fantastic, I adore the monowheel motorbike.

@  Rycochet : (19 September 2020 - 03:12 PM)

Hasbro doesn't seem to have any interest in doing anything with the TV show, haven't greenlit any attempt to rerelease it, and there have been approaches, so I think it may be aother one of Tonka's legal carcrashes where everyone involved owns a piece and it's not really worth anyone sticking their neck out to claim ownership.

@  Steevy Maximus : (19 September 2020 - 01:47 PM)

I feel that homages and references would be a fun way to expand the GI Joe brand, and give a little love to lines that are unlikely to be acknowledged beyond such capacity.

@  Steevy Maximus : (19 September 2020 - 01:47 PM)

I was under the impression that Bandai was more the character design aspects, not story or characters.

@  Rycochet : (19 September 2020 - 12:55 PM)

Also isn't it in rights limbo, given how it's loosely based on concepts from a BanDai series much like GoBots?

@  Rycochet : (19 September 2020 - 12:52 PM)

We don't need a Spiral Zone reboot, in a decade or so we'll be living it.

@  wonko the sane? : (19 September 2020 - 12:49 PM)

Yeah, but it would fundamentally change the base premise of both gijoe and spiral zone. It's either not the world spanning threat it was, or the zone riders are backed up by a competent force. Either way, you compromise the context of both.

@  Steevy Maximus : (19 September 2020 - 12:19 PM)

Akin to what was done with Matt Tracker in 2008.

@  Steevy Maximus : (19 September 2020 - 12:18 PM)

Again, not a PURE transplant, but an integration of ideas and concepts into the world of GI Joe.

@  Steevy Maximus : (19 September 2020 - 12:18 PM)

@Wonko The Cobra Overlord, with help from Dr. Mindbender and Cesspool, develops machines capable of generating a mind-controlling fog. GI Joe stalwarts Flint, Airtight, Lifeline, and Psyche-Out are joined by Colonal Courage to infiltrate these zones and disable the machines. Figures would sport hostile environment suits (Eco warriors cross with Spiral Zone) and make new versions of the mono-wheel vehicles.

@  Maximus Ambus : (19 September 2020 - 09:39 AM)

Hasbroverse.2 with bought properties: Bravestarr, Ulysses 31, Galaxy Rangers, Shadow Raiders, Manta Force, Jayce and the Wheeled Warriors, Mighty Orbots, Jem and Bigfoot and the Muscle Machines. Seamless.

@  wonko the sane? : (19 September 2020 - 08:32 AM)

While acknoledging spiral zone would be pretty boss, I doubt they could actively integrate it into anything else: given the scale of the villains deeds.

@  Steevy Maximus : (19 September 2020 - 08:03 AM)

COPS, Spiral Zone, Shadow Strikers, Action Man, Centurions, MegaForce. They wouldn’t replicate the old lines, but simply acknowledging their existence would be nifty.

@  Steevy Maximus : (19 September 2020 - 08:01 AM)

I would love to see GI Joe become something of a “celebration of action figures”. Hasbro has SO MANY old action figure properties, and many could slot into the GI Joe umbrella with relative ease.

@  Otaku : (19 September 2020 - 12:04 AM)

G.I. Joe, CyberCOPS, and M.A.S.K. all seem like something that would work from Animated or Prime, though CyberCOPS might have been a bit trickier from Prime.

@  Sabrblade : (18 September 2020 - 11:02 PM)

Rik Alvarez originally wanted the last episode of Prime to spinoff into a new MASK reboot.

More than Beast machines or RID fans have gotten.

I'll give you Beast Machines but RiD 2001 has gotten Titanium Optimus, Universe (2008) Bruticus, Generations Sky-Byte, two different molds of Scourge/Black Convoy in Legends, and all five members of Ruination/Baldigus in Unite Warriors.

That's ten individual figures without also counting any of the Fun Pub exclusives, the Universe (2003) redecos, or the (admittedly faulty) Encore God Fire Convoy reissue.

That's one original new mold mainline figure in Skybyte, one bad titanium figure and a whole bunch of repaints, 

Then it's even truer to the spirit of the original line likewise being some new molds and a lot of repaints. ;)

I think we can all agree that anything non-G1 is underrepresented in the Generations lines. More of anything, BW or otherwise, is a bit of a win (I myself want more UT stuff).

Not that it contradicts your point, but isn't the Studio Series technically part of the Generations line?

Sorry, I should have added "aside from the movie stuff;" I've really enjoyed Studio Series. I have mixed feelings about it being taken over by G1 stuff, but if it allows me to get better G1 Cyclonus, Kup, etc while also getting new BW stuff in the main Generations line I won't complain too much

Saw this posted on Seibertron.com  not sure how reputable.  Most of it we have seen before.  Maybe I missed the part about Warpath and more mini-bots being in the line.
 

-Earthrise is only 3 retail waves, Kingdom Wave 1 is set to release in December (so the same release window as Siege Wave 5)
-Galvatron confirmed to be in Kingdom, Leader class, with "Multiple variations" (Selects repaint based on toy/comic colors? Energon Megatron homage?)
-Fossilizers being produced using codenames, so far has mentioned "Catbone" and "Wingsaur"
-Titan comes with multiple accessories and a transforming companion that never transformed before, uncertain if it features Airlock ramps
-Deluxe Warpath (the clues were K4P0W and he's NOT Core Class)
-More Deluxe Class Minibots in addition to Warpath, none named
-Core Class Optimus may not be the G1 again (Bat Optimus?)
-Size class of Rodimus was never confirmed, the "potentially divisive" statement was in regard to his price point/size class

Pretty sure Rodimus is going to be Commander class. I believe the leaker said he was more of a homage to the original toy than the animation model, so I can see the trailer transforming into his battle station to justify the size class.

It could result in us getting a Rodimus that scales perfectly with 3H era Wreckers. And I am all over that if it happens

Both of them would be in scale with every other WFCT figure though, as Generations is in a roughly 1:35 unified scale. If you're not hoping for a Rodimus or Galvatron that isn't the height of Siege/ER Optimus or Megatron, don't get your hopes up. :<

Just based on preferences and future expenses I'm not likely to spring for any Studio Series G1 Dinobots or the like, but it would actually be interesting to get some Bone-Age Transformers to put with my Volcanicus team.  If they're like the Weaponizers/Modulators there's got to be a way to tear two or three apart and make combiner armor out of them.

I worry folks are gonna be really disappointed in the Fossilizers. (Provided they turn out to be a true thing like we expect.)

They are so different sounding in concept from anything we've had before it's easy for folks to imagine really cool things in their head without taking into account things like Small Size and Engineering necessities and all that.

I worry when we see them there's gonna be a lot of "that's not as cool as the thing I made up in my head."

I am very interested in the concept though and curious how it'll work out in a "new character" vs "existing character" sense and in a fictional how will the ad copy explain them in-universe sense.


-ZacWilliam, Weaponizers and Modulators+Roads have been some of my favorite parts of WFC so I hope they keep it up.
