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.

@  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.

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)

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^)

I don't even wanna know how they moved Europe from north of Africa to south of it down there.

 

Also, like, the entirety of mainland Asia is conspicuously absent.

Update from Ozformers

Transformers Toy Reveal UPDATE.
Due to the toy samples (coming from overseas) being estimated to arrive on Monday (later than planned), Hasbro have told us to push back the reveal to Thursday November 5th.
Exact times for the Reveal and Pre-order listings (here and overseas) are still being verified, and will be posted here in the next few days once confirmed.
Sorry about the delay, but the global pandemic is affecting everything, including international travel and freight.
We'll just keep our fingers crossed for an extra week, that the toy doesn't end up getting leaked during these extra few days.

I'm going to go ahead and leak it:  It's a new-style G1 Megatron but with a brand new role-play sized alt-mode.  The problem is, it's stuck in Australian customs as they made it TOO realistic.  Australian toy safety laws say it's so close, it might be considered a real one, but Hasbro insists it's NOT...

 

42813958264_226fa8a65e_b.jpg

 

Here's the new toy being examined by the customs officer.  Sadly, no matter what they say, you know it'll appear in Japan with a huge markup anyway.

 

They're still better off than the American-exclusive reveal of the Sasquatch recolor of Optimus Primal.  That toy was delivered to Hasbro Corporate WEEKS ago but no one can FIND it...

Sounds like they've been promised a reveal, but factors have changed the timing, and thus changed what figure it is to be revealed, so I wouldn't make any assumptions about it being "special" in anyway or necessarily more than a deluxe.

 

Scheduled release of April 2021 suggests the "second"/Spring wave of the year. I would guess it wouldn't be the Ark or the Commander class, the "big ticket" items seems to show up in the third/Summer wave each year.

 

I wouldn't be surprised if it was a deluxe, but also it being a single figure makes me think it would be a voyager or a leader. A deluxe, one might think wave mates would also be revealed, though not necessarily.

 

So voyager or leader figures rumored for the second wave of Kingdom or Studio Series.... Earth-modeUltra Magnus? Slag? Dinobot/Rhinox/Tigatron? Or a potentially 'underwhelming' reveal of Kingdom G1 Inferno?

Sky Lynx shipped a fair bit before Wave 2 this year.

 

I wouldn't be shocked if it was Rodimus.

To be fair, this year was a bit screwy in terms of distribution.  More than usual, anyway.

 

 

Here's my reasonings:

A mainline deluxe is unlikely, those usually come in groups because of the wave structure.  Same is true of the Core class.

Commander, Titan, and second wave Leaders is unlikely given those tend to be later year releases and tend to be allocated to more...significant..media outlets.

AT that point in the year, it's possible to be a wave 2 Voyager release, and something like Dinobot would be a fairly "big" reveal for a fan site.

Anything Cyberverse is unlikely since collectors aren't, generally, interested in that line.

 

I'm thinking it might be a Selects release.  They aren't, technically, store exclusives after all.

Sky Lynx shipped during the Summer wave, not the Spring wave. Sky Lynx was not available in April.

 

Wave numbers can be misleading/weird especially with Siege having 5 waves and ER apparently having 3.

Sunstreaker and Trailbreaker were revealed separately from Fast Track and Runamuck. So Deluxes are sometimes revealed separately from others in their wave.

Just a small update. Ozformers have dropped a couple hints.

It's a voyager and a Decepticon.

My guess based on rumors. Studio series 86 Coronation Starscream. Out of all the more credible rumors that's the only fit.

Unless it's something we haven't heard about at all.
