Multiplaying as in "playing with other people" or multiplaying as in "6 WoW accounts running at the same time"?

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.

@  Paladin : (17 June 2021 - 09:37 AM)

Thanks to Earthrise I can recreate the end of Return of Optimus Prime part 1.

@  wonko the sane? : (16 June 2021 - 11:19 AM)

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

@  Nevermore : (16 June 2021 - 10:42 AM)

Here in Germany, the price you see is the price you pay, tax included.

@  Nevermore : (16 June 2021 - 10:42 AM)

I always find it weaird hearing that stores in the US don't initially already taxes in their prices.

Ozformers is reporting that Australia will be doing an exclusive reveal of a new figure on October 30th.

The figure is not an exclusive and will be available at all stores. With an April 2021 release date.


That'll be 8pm EDT on Thursday the 29th for us on this side of the globe.

New Transformers toy reveal Friday October 30th.
.
If everything goes according to plan, Australia will be revealing a new Transformers toy on Friday, that won't be released until April 2021.
.
This was originally planned to be done at the Sydney Hasbro office in July as a fan-meet reveal, but Covid prevented that... and then it was moved to October (with a different toy), and once again Covid made it too risky to have it held in their offices... so we might be having the reveal done in Brisbane on that day instead, if the toy sample arrives in time... posted on this facebook page to keep to Hasbro's exact timetable.
This is a huge responsibility for us, and we will be respecting the conditions and rules set out by Hasbro (America and Australia) for trusting us with this... as such, no details or hints will be given out before the reveal.
.
The Reveal here on this Ozformers fb page - Friday October 30th at 11am Sydney/Melbourne (10am Brisbane).
(that should be 8pm Thursday 29th in New York timezone/EDT)
.
Preorders Go Live in the rest of the world an hour later:
- Friday October 30th Noon Sydney (EADT)
- Thursday October 29th 9pm US (New York timezone)
- Friday October 30th 9am Asia (Hong Kong timezone)
The product will be available in stores 1st of April 2021. (in all retailers - it is NOT a store exclusive)
.
This reveal still won't be a fan-meet format (it might get some negative publicity from other parts of the country & world if we have a group of people in close proximity, even if it is allowed in Brisbane)... instead, a number of fans will be able to come around on the weekend (not at a set time or all at once) to explore the toy at their leisure. Those people will be one of the first fans in the world to play with it, 5-6 months before it gets released, and post up their own opinions and photos/videos on their websites and socials in the days after the official reveal... but details on that will be posted up on or before Friday (if the toy arrives).
.
If the toy sample does NOT show up, or something else unforeseen happens, the new toy will still be revealed that day by Hasbro America and the various online stores that will be allowed to list their pre-orders that day.
.
Hopefully this toy doesn't get leaked in the next four days, and we don't get beaten to the reveal by another official source that wasn't able to work out the timezone differences. ;)
(we will post up some reminders during the week)

"available at all stores"

 

Be great if that's true, but past experience says there's no guarantee this whatever it is makes it to stores at all.


On rare occasions, I have something to say.

It will be the announcement that Disney has bought out Hasbro, and is rolling Transformers into their brand with new crossovers with Mary Poppins.

OBVIOUSLY it's a new Outback.  Why else reveal it in Australia?

 

New for Kingdom, though, he's a triple-changer with a beast mode.  He's a Drop Bear.

I think that would be held until Toy Fair personally. But the description makes me think it's going to be something more significant than a normal Deluxe or smaller figure perhaps.

Would be awesome if true.

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.

In the same theme as this joke, I suddenly wanted a Star-Upper. 

And then came that all too familiar crushing realization that there will never be a Star-Upper.

Or maybe the Ark is a quad-changer, with Ark, Robot, 'that room that was in G1 all the time', and Australia modes.  The entire continent.  The Ark was bigger than most people thought in that continuity...

Now there's an idea for a combiner. Each continent and ocean is a separate robot, and join together to form a globe!

 

Could even be marketed as an educational toy! 8^)
