I want Dr. Smoov to RUN

@  Bass X0 : (29 September 2020 - 03:15 PM)

I want Dr. Smoov or the Jaboody Show guys to dub over WFC with voices and personalities more in line with the 80s cartoon. That means no more jerk Bumblebee.

@  Maximus Ambus : (29 September 2020 - 01:35 AM)

Ever notice Kath SOucie's Janine in the later episodes of Real Ghostbusters sounds like Tara Strong's Sari Sumdac?

@  Maximus Ambus : (28 September 2020 - 02:10 PM)

I wish they were more universal like Beast Wars, Animated or Prime and as professionally done,

@  Maximus Ambus : (28 September 2020 - 02:06 PM)

The Netflix shows are done for adults, the Generation toyline is for adults who grew up with G1.

@  Sabrblade : (28 September 2020 - 12:53 PM)

Whatever happened to WFC Earthrise being a kids show X'D

@  wonko the sane? : (28 September 2020 - 11:43 AM)

Cool, my last tablet couldn't run it, and I stopped caring by the time I got the new one. So thanks!

@  Otaku : (28 September 2020 - 11:27 AM)

There are crossover characters, but the amount and distribution... Marvel Vs Capcom this ain't.  If @wonko the sane? my bad!

@  Otaku : (28 September 2020 - 11:21 AM)

I've been playing for *checks account* 1002 days, 23 hours.  So, by 2021, it will have been three years.  I think it takes place in its own continuity, largely inspired by G1 but borrowing from other places.

@  Otaku : (28 September 2020 - 11:19 AM)

@wonko the sane? Can only speak for Earth Wars, but so few they're easy to forget.

@  wonko the sane? : (28 September 2020 - 07:39 AM)

Didn't they already do the across universes thing in that tablet game?

@  Demovere Xeno : (28 September 2020 - 05:30 AM)

Also, make the setting an amalgamation of different Transformers series, rather than based on a specific one. Bring in things like 'Sentinel Major' as the primo Autobot jerk, and sleek car mode Vehicons as the Decepticons' basic grunt.

@  Demovere Xeno : (28 September 2020 - 05:27 AM)

KT just needs to incorporate the vehicle modes into the combat system, like Platinum did for Devastation, so they're for more than just wheeling it across the battlefield. =P

@  Demovere Xeno : (28 September 2020 - 05:25 AM)

Transformers: Warriors of Cybertron! =D

@  NotVeryKnightly : (28 September 2020 - 01:53 AM)

Aren't TFs way more varied than Joes, as far as they'd work in gameplay? Like, Omega Supreme is vastly different from Bumblebee.

@  unluckiness : (27 September 2020 - 10:16 PM)

Hell, ripoff Super Robot Wars withTFs

@  unluckiness : (27 September 2020 - 10:16 PM)

IDK they could make something like FF tactics or Fire Emblem ripoff with Robots and i'd buy it

@  Steevy Maximus : (27 September 2020 - 09:43 PM)

See, I feel GI Joe (with it's varied cast) is a better fit for a strategy game, where as Transformers feels more suited for a shooter.

@  Maruten : (27 September 2020 - 08:28 PM)

I might give them points for making a strategy game if it's actually a good strategy game.

@  wonko the sane? : (27 September 2020 - 07:48 PM)

I mean, points for making a strategy game instead of third person shooter, but: urrrrgggg. Cyberverse.

@  wonko the sane? : (27 September 2020 - 07:47 PM)

A transformers game for the switch? *checks* Urrrggg... cyberverse...

@  Steevy Maximus : (27 September 2020 - 06:28 PM)

October will be a big month for Hasbro fans: Zoids, GI Joe AND Transformers all have brand new console games. All on the Switch at that!

@  wonko the sane? : (27 September 2020 - 09:04 AM)

At least in animated he was more driven than just "loyal bootlick".

@  unluckiness : (27 September 2020 - 08:29 AM)

Oof, That's a huge downgrade

@  Maximus Ambus : (27 September 2020 - 02:35 AM)

After rewatching Animated Sound and Fury, in my head canon Titans Return Soundwave is that Soundwave.

@  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)

Aw I scratched the hood of my 35th anniversary Bluestreak. Fortunately he's in robot mode a lot.

@  Sabrblade : (25 September 2020 - 07:24 PM)

No decoration could improve the wall more than Knockout himself

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

The wall could use some decorating, though. Maybe a nice shelf or a portrait.

@  -LittleAutob... : (25 September 2020 - 02:23 PM)

AND THEN KNOCKOUT WAS IN THE WALL AGAIN XDDD

@  Bass X0 : (25 September 2020 - 01:11 PM)

is an annoying stage in Super Mario World.

@  wonko the sane? : (24 September 2020 - 02:15 PM)

@  PlutoniumBoss : (24 September 2020 - 01:05 PM)

Beast Era, a blonde rat called Sunsqueaker.

@  TheMightyMol... : (24 September 2020 - 01:00 PM)

And then Knockout was in the wall again.

@  Sabrblade : (24 September 2020 - 12:53 PM)

Knockout: "Ooh, sorry, Lord Megatron. The correct word was... 'Decepticon'."

@  -LittleAutob... : (24 September 2020 - 11:15 AM)

Knockout: *while doing a crossword puzzle* Lord Megatron, whats a ten letter word for disappointment? | Megatron: ...... Starscream.

@  Maximus Ambus : (23 September 2020 - 01:20 PM)

@Bass X0 Shockwave did it.

@  TheMightyMol... : (23 September 2020 - 11:56 AM)

At least it's not Suntwerker.

@  wonko the sane? : (23 September 2020 - 11:19 AM)

I read that name as "suntweaker" the first time, and was terrified for a moment...

@  Bass X0 : (23 September 2020 - 03:41 AM)

Prowl did nothing wrong.

I have absolutely no interest in warring beasts, but I sure as hell support the BW fans getting some real stuff for a while. 

 

Also I guess probably we will get some really adorable animal dudes in the Battle Master-ish space, and I am ONTO A BOARD for that.

Welp, I'm sufficiently surprised at seems to be organic looks route.   I thought we might have got  G1ized Beast Wars characters like how Cyberverse handled Cheetor. 

Considering how Omega was just released, I doubt we'll see him redone as Ark.   

 

 

Ark as a cluster of a bunch of weaponizers and modulators, I wouldn't mind that.   It could even achieve a "volcano" mode with that kind of setup.

As someone who basically missed Beast Wars as it happened,  (Grew out of Transformers during G2, came back as a near adult when I saw RiD Optimus in a commercial with a badass missile battery on his shoulders)  I'm debating whether the enjoyment and respect I gained for the property as an adult is enough to push me into grabbing these new figures. Beast Wars having a small cast definitely lights up the completionist portion of my brain, which I have been suppressing for years now. (I only get TF figures I think are cool or are a character I like) so it might be fun to indulge.

BW was something I appreciated more in college (I entered middle school as the show began airing, and my interests shifted from toys to video games - Waspinator was one of the last toys I got as a kid). In college, after jumping back into collecting with Armada, being able to get and watch the BW DVDs was great since the UT shows weren't so good. Moreover, I think the character designs themselves (especially S1 before wonky TM color schemes took hold) are still great and hold up against any of the better G1 character designs. In short, I'll definitely be buying these despite BW not being a huge part of my childhood.

Netflix just openly confirmed the "Kingdom" name for part 3 of the streaming series. I assume that validates everyone's predictions for the toyline.

Why are you acting like BW gets figures all the time? Since 2006 we've only gotten a grand total of 6 BW figures as part of the CHUG line, and 1 of them was that abominable Cheetor mold that's better off forgotten.

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, and on the other hand we have had Cheetor, Dinobot, Rhinox, Megatron, Optimus Primal, Blackarachnia, Rattrap and so on represented across mass retail lines with original molds, with various exclusives and reissues of the original toys on top of that. Beast wars may not be as represented in plastic as G1, but it's done a whole lot better than most other series.

The difference between one series getting 10 figures in Generations and another getting 6 is completely negligible when considering the 100's of figures G1 has gotten in the last few years.  

 

The fans of other underrepresented series are not your enemy. The GeeWunners are our enemy  ;)
