Funny how 2020 gave me new appreciation for Dawn of the Dead 1978.

@  Sukoshiko : (25 October 2020 - 07:43 PM)

@Fenix Twilight Sure. Just not a good one.

@  Fenix Twilight : (25 October 2020 - 04:02 PM)

@Sukoshiko Well his clothes left an impression on you didn't they?

@  TheMightyMol... : (25 October 2020 - 06:09 AM)

I just read "Tesla Cybertruck" like AC/DC's "Thunderstruck", now it won't get out of my head, so I inflict it on all of you as well.

@  Sukoshiko : (25 October 2020 - 12:25 AM)

Tesla Cybertruck: amazing or just silly looking? I can't decide.

@  Sukoshiko : (25 October 2020 - 12:24 AM)

Weird question: I had to deal with a guy today... I'm not exactly up on modern fashions... or even archaic fashions... But this guy... Tuxedo Jacket and shirt, studs in all the button holes except the bottom one, blue jeans, and cowboy boots... Take a moment to imagine that get up. And this was to a business meeting, trying to impress someone. What look is that? Who on earth would dress that way? (I mean on purpose)

@  wonko the sane? : (24 October 2020 - 06:04 PM)

I think the few up here were lost to bad placement, poor weather, and the usual language trap.

@  TM2-Megatron : (24 October 2020 - 04:25 PM)

There are 5 spread around southwestern Ontario, all run by the same company. I've only been to the one in my area, but it seems to do good business even in non-pandemic times. On long weekends, when they do triple features, there's a normally a lineup to get in Friday and Saturday nights

@  Telly : (24 October 2020 - 01:51 PM)

there been one outside of my town for as long as ive been alive at least. its gone through its share of owners and periods of being closed down, but its been open for the past decade at least

@  Otaku : (24 October 2020 - 12:08 PM)

Bias from personal experience, but drive-in theaters are nearly extinct.  I grew up near one but it went out of business in the late 80s, and was torn down and replaced with some other business by the early 90s.

@  wonko the sane? : (24 October 2020 - 07:47 AM)

Out here, I mean. Couldn't comment on their popularity in place where they actually exist.

@  wonko the sane? : (24 October 2020 - 06:44 AM)

I wouldn't know. They've only come back into vogue with the social distancing from the plague, and while some places have made an effort to shoestring the places together, it's all largely too distant to be accessible.

@  TM2-Megatron : (23 October 2020 - 09:46 PM)

I'd hate to see ours replaced by condos. They're a great way to spend an evening, whether with family or on a date. And they've never been as common in Canada as the US, so we cna't afford to lose as many

@  wonko the sane? : (23 October 2020 - 09:45 PM)

Largely they were either poorly placed or bought out and torn down to be replaced by something other than over priced short term parking. Mostly condos.

@  TM2-Megatron : (23 October 2020 - 09:14 PM)

I guess your winters are worse, so they have a shorter operating season. Drive-ins in the Toronto area can usually operate until early or mid-December; maybe even into early January if there's no real snowfall, and open up again sometime in March.

@  TM2-Megatron : (23 October 2020 - 09:13 PM)

THere's really only 1 left in the entire province?

@  wonko the sane? : (23 October 2020 - 09:03 PM)

Ha! It's probably faster for me to drive to your drive in than to make my way to the only one left in quebec.

@  TM2-Megatron : (23 October 2020 - 06:57 PM)

Fortunately we still have a drive-in theatre that's exempt from the closures about a 10 minute drive away

@  TM2-Megatron : (23 October 2020 - 06:57 PM)

Theatres around here are closed again for at least another couple weeks (wouldn't be surprised if it's extended by another month or so, either), but that's what they've been doing here as well. Playing the old classics

@  Maximus Ambus : (23 October 2020 - 02:36 PM)

I got Earthrise Megatron, he's better then I thought he'd be though Netflix Megatron is still tops.

@  Bass X0 : (23 October 2020 - 10:44 AM)

The original Rocky movie is also showing. May go next weekend. That’s how you get people back in the theatres - show the old classics every adult loves.

@  wonko the sane? : (23 October 2020 - 10:35 AM)

They did a limited run showing of it up here too, back when the theaters were open... red zones suck.

@  Bass X0 : (23 October 2020 - 10:13 AM)

The original Back To The Future is showing in the Odeon in the UK now. I think I will go see it tomorrow.

@  Donocropolis : (23 October 2020 - 05:51 AM)

It was either the Bumblebee or Cliffjumper. Can't remember the colors.

@  Kalidor : (22 October 2020 - 06:43 PM)

What did it look like?

@  Donocropolis : (22 October 2020 - 01:34 PM)

I swear I remember getting the Happymeal G1 minibot as a child, but I live 2.5 hours from St. Louis, which is the only place they apparently came out. It's possible that I got it on a family vacation, though, as we went to Six Flags pretty often.

@  ▲ndrusi : (22 October 2020 - 01:07 PM)

Conversely, I had the Gobot helicopter from Wendy's and I was absolutely convinced it was an actual Transformer.

@  Donocropolis : (22 October 2020 - 08:13 AM)

I used to rubber-band Hot-Wheels style construction vehicles together and pretend it was Devestator.

@  Bass X0 : (21 October 2020 - 05:26 PM)

When I was about four years old, my parents bought me Bugbite and tried to tell me it was Bumblebee. I was not yet a fan of Transformers, but I knew that wasn't Bumblebee. I didn't even have the real Bumblebee at that time.

@  Maximus Ambus : (21 October 2020 - 01:39 PM)

It would come with two soundtracks: the eighties classic and one featuring dubstep and the VAs are popular Youtubers.

@  wonko the sane? : (21 October 2020 - 12:13 PM)

But yeah, reading it: I came off as a bit of an ass.

@  wonko the sane? : (21 October 2020 - 11:52 AM)

I just couldn't think of worse music than disco...

@  NotVeryKnightly : (21 October 2020 - 11:35 AM)

What were you trying to imply with the mocking sarcasm, though? Nobody suggested that '80s music was any more "of it's time" than '70s music.

@  wonko the sane? : (21 October 2020 - 11:18 AM)

I said that disco wouldn't fare much better with the same context: media is property of it's time; biases, culture and limitations are all inherent in that. Some stuff can be brought forward because of an inherently timeless nature or the simplicity with which it was made but lots of media is a time capsule of the period of when it was made.

@  NotVeryKnightly : (21 October 2020 - 08:46 AM)

I'm not sure what you're trying to imply, or what you even think I said.

@  wonko the sane? : (21 October 2020 - 08:11 AM)

Yeah, cause disco would make the transition so much better...

@  NotVeryKnightly : (21 October 2020 - 07:17 AM)

I feel the '80s music would be jarring when running over current-day CGI instead of well, '80s visuals.

@  Maximus Ambus : (21 October 2020 - 05:39 AM)

Not a remake, reanimated scene for scene, like that fan vid titled they were always real to me.

@  TheMightyMol... : (21 October 2020 - 04:37 AM)

Because we need more remakes these days.

@  Maximus Ambus : (21 October 2020 - 01:36 AM)

Be a hoot if these Studio Series 86 toys led to Transformers The Move Reanimated like Pokemon Mewtwo Strikes Back Evolution.

@  Paladin : (20 October 2020 - 05:15 PM)

@  Maximus Ambus : (20 October 2020 - 02:32 PM)

Seems the area near my work place is due to be gentrified. Electric car ports, fifty pound haircuts and five pound bowls of cereal in breakfast cafes I'll bet.

@  Steevy Maximus : (19 October 2020 - 11:31 PM)

@ZakuConvoy Lumines Electric Symphony. So still halfway interesting, and it’ll play on the PS TV

@  Demovere Xeno : (19 October 2020 - 10:36 PM)

@Maximus: I paired the Battle Patrol with Ironworks and they look good together, though the Off Road Patrol would probably fit best as vehicles you're likely to find at a construction site.

@  ZakuConvoy : (19 October 2020 - 09:39 PM)

So...was it something like Tearaway or Gravity Rush or was it just a FIFA or a Madden?

@  wonko the sane? : (19 October 2020 - 08:26 PM)

I'm not expecting anything beyond "weaponizers, but bone dinosaurs"  Just partformers who's altmode happens to be skeletons.

 But they’ll still be DINOSAUR Skeletons!  Dinosaurs alone make them a good chunk more exciting than “blocks and guns that turn into robots and bases”!

I do agree that the idea of what something could be often leads to disappointment over what actually occurs, I remember when the first FOC Combaticons were announced and everyone expected retail versions of the Fansproject combiner.  Even outside that, discussing 'Leader Class' or the like brings mental images that modern toys often just don't live up to.  I don't expect a Leader Class Galvatron to be much taller or better detailed than the TR one, for example, except probably having a better head.

So. We got some info courtesy of Jtprime

Notomus the forums Target insider shared the following info on Kingdom that is supposedly in Targets system.

There are the following...

6 core class figures
16 Deluxes
7 Voyagers
2 Leaders

In the line so far.

So far only the Voyagers have names in the system being....

Cyclonus
Optimus Prime (They think this is a mis-labeled Primal)
G1 Inferno
Starscream
Dinobot
Rhinox
Tigatron


Also, Apollox, the original leaker confirmed a deluxe Slammer in the line. He hasn't seen it. Only the name on the list of figures called "Slammer (partial)"

Speculation is that Slammer is a retool.of the new Warpath.

Given that it's a BW crossover line, that Starscream should absolutely be Translucent Starscream's Ghost.

True. But Earthrise Prime is leader class.

 

Only with the trailer included. Without it, he's just a Voyager.

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.

Okay, so I've tried to accumulate all the rumors we have had so far into one list for easier comprehension. I will update it as necessary.

 

 

 
War for Cybertron Part 3: Kingdom
 
G1 cast meets Beast Wars cast via time travel.
 
Line is split 40/60 between beast era and g1 cast
 
Battlemasters and Micromasters are gone. Replaced with new legends sized Core class
 
New play feature: Fossilizers.  Skeletal dinosaurs that come apart to form armor and weapons.  Next evolution of weaponizers/modulators system
 
Core class 6 figures
 
G1 Optimus,
 
G1 Megatron,
 
Rattrap,
 
+2 Fossilizers
 
1 Unkown
 
Deluxe class 16 figures
 
Cheetor,
 
Airrazor,
 
G1 Warpath,
 
G1 Slammer
 
+ 3 Fossilizers
 
9 unknown
 
Voyager class 7 figures
 
Optimus Primal
 
Dinobot,
 
G1 Inferno
 
Rhinox
 
G1 Cyclonus
 
Starscream
 
Tigatron
 
*Listing for Optimus Prime but might be mislabeled Primal
 
Leader Class 2 figures
 
Beast Wars Megatron,
 
 G1 Galvatron
 
 
 
Unconfirmed Size class
 
Scorponok,
 
Blackarachnia,
 
G1 Rodimus Prime
 
 
 
Commander and Titan class
 
Both Unknown. Not BW Characters
 
Titan has a robot mode. Described as a bit gangly.  Has smaller transforming companion figure.  Companion is something that did not transform before.  Current theories: Metroplex 2.0 or a transforming Ark.
 
Unconfirmed rumor: Titan companion is former actionmaster character
 
Rodimus’s size class said to be controversial.  Theory is he is the commander class.  Will be based more on the original toy than the 86 movie design.
 
Additional Info
 
Beast wars characters supposedly missing from the main line: Inferno and Terrorsaur  and one more
 
Fossilizers described as realistic bone look. Skeletal design. Very remeniscant of Kenner’s Bone Age toyline.  Can form armor and weapons like lances and axes.  One has part that looks like Primals’ old mace weapon.
 
Galvatron has multiple variations planned.
 
May be some Earthrise figures repacked to refresh them for the new line.
 
Slammer listed as Slammer (partial), theory is that he is Warpath retool

Unless I'm forgetting someone, the only other season 1 characters missing from the list besides Inferno and Terrorsaur are Tarantulas and Waspinator. So I guess one of them is going to be absent from the mainline. I kind of hope Waspinator makes it, as I could see Inferno being retooled from him as a Selects release. 

 

EDIT: Also, it's weird that Cyclonus is apparently going to be in Kingdom. Really thought he was going to be an 86 Studio series release, as the prototype we saw a while back looked very screen accurate to me.

Waspinator's Generations figure is pretty perfect. Tarranulas's original toy has more room for improvement. I'd much rather Tarranty shows up in the line.

Core class Optimus and Megatron sound bad to me unless they are a Bat and a Crock. I dislike when they do "supposed to be big" guys really out of scale with the rest of the line. Mostly when they're using up slots that could have been actual smaller characters who could use updates: like Huffer or Slugfest and Overkill, or any of the Throttlebot or Sparkabots.

-ZacWilliam, Have they said the Fossilizers have robot modes? Or are they just bones to armor/weapons.

I would prefer Tarantulus over Waspinator too, but I'm not a huge fan of the T30 Waspinator mold. The wasp mode has too many mechanical-looking parts and the robot knees are far too limited in the proper direction. The wing gimmick sort of hampers wing posability as well. Ideally, all the S1 characters will eventually get Kingdom molds.

Maybe the 'multiple sizes of Galvatron' is some sort of tie-in to big Unicron.  On that note, wild speculation:  A Titan-Class (smaller than Giant but bigger than Armada) Unicron with Galvatron's ship, triple changing into a variation on Galvatron himself and a submarine mode for Unicron to use, intended to be a fill-in for those who couldn't get the big one, that would also keep the Giant Unicron's exclusiveness as the substitute would be more gangly to make a roughly Metroplex-sized robot out of a smaller planet mode.

 

It will also reveal the true cause of Galvatron's madness:

 

"Please stop that, it's driving me crazy."

 

"BaNg!  bAnG BAnG pOww..."

I took "Multiple variations of Galvatron" to mean multiple color schemes like for Select release variants: G1 Cartoon, G1 Comic, maybe a head remold for an IDW version not different size classes.

-ZacWilliam, I would say different sizes of him is pretty unlikely but if they are doing a Core scale Mega and Prime it goes down to just regular unlikely.
