Otherworld and The Star Lost aren't too bad for a boring three days off.

I've had to do fix fics for my own fix fics.

@  TheMightyMol... : (17 May 2021 - 02:19 PM)

"Fix fics" are their own entire category of fanfiction.

@  PlutoniumBoss : (17 May 2021 - 01:32 PM)

Is fanfic "fixing" an author's story? (Often it is, I think.)

@  Tm_Silverclaw : (17 May 2021 - 12:15 PM)

I don't think people repainting and such are nessicarly "Fixing" a toy, just modding it to their likes. The problem is when they go around claiming to have "Fixed' it, that I feel it becomes a problem.

@  CORVUS : (17 May 2021 - 08:41 AM)

"I was gonna buy some Toyhax labels for Earthrise Auto-Whatsit, but since I'd be disrespecting the artistic expression of the designers, I think I'll just forget the whole thing."

@  TheMightyMol... : (17 May 2021 - 06:41 AM)

Like, in general, not going into specific bands or covers. Because I could point out plenty of repainted toys I didn't like as much as the original, too.

@  TheMightyMol... : (17 May 2021 - 06:39 AM)

Is a musician covering a song "fixing" it?

@  Nevermore : (17 May 2021 - 05:15 AM)

So, then, isn't redecoing or retooling an existing toy also "fixing" someone else's art?

@  PlutoniumBoss : (16 May 2021 - 10:07 PM)

A toy is not on the same level as a piece of drawn art, true, but it is 100% an entertainment product.

@  Nevermore : (16 May 2021 - 05:05 PM)

A toy is an object of utility, Comparing that to a piece of drawn art is grossly ignoring the difference between the two. Also, you didn't answer my questions. Try again.

@  PlutoniumBoss : (16 May 2021 - 04:25 PM)

Part of the difference is that those covers are primarily one person's art. Sure, you probably have an inker and a colorist, but the lines and composition are one person. A toy however is a team design at pretty much all levels.

@  Cyoti : (16 May 2021 - 03:52 PM)

toymaking is a collaborative process, you have to make compromises and factories are going to get things wrong

@  tigerhawk : (16 May 2021 - 03:43 PM)

Earthrise had a few holes, Runamuck's legs YIKES!

@  NotVeryKnightly : (16 May 2021 - 03:37 PM)

I doubt that say, the designer for Kingdom Cheetor was happy about every bit of unpainted plastic on it.

@  Bass X0 : (16 May 2021 - 03:28 PM)

J Scott Campbell recently had his Spiderman cover "fixed" by someone online. A few weeks ago, someone on twitter "fixed" someone's Sonic the Hedgehog fan art where Sonic, Tails and Knuckles were drawn as humans. Both times and other times, the "fixer" gets called out and criticised as you shouldn't go around "fixing" someone else's art because its rude and disrespectful to the original artist. And I was thinking isn't "fixed your s*** for ya" exactly what toy customisers do?

@  Nevermore : (16 May 2021 - 02:28 PM)

Have you ever changed your car in any way whatsoever compared to the factory configuration, or are you leaving the designer's art unchanged in that case as well?

@  CORVUS : (16 May 2021 - 02:28 PM)

It's best not to ponder it too hard.

@  Nevermore : (16 May 2021 - 04:16 AM)

Bass X0, I really wonder sometimes how you come up with these random tangents apropos of nothing.

@  PlutoniumBoss : (16 May 2021 - 04:11 AM)

It's collaborative art.

@  NotVeryKnightly : (16 May 2021 - 04:07 AM)

Toys are subject to budget constraints, so its not like customizing would ruin the designer's vision or whatever.

@  Bass X0 : (16 May 2021 - 03:38 AM)

Isn't customising a toy just "fixing other people's art"?

That might actually be a fake noise they make electric cars make so pedestrians can hear them. Some cars even let you pick out what noise they make.

Pretty much what it says in the threads title. The Transformers Facebook page just posted a crossover symbol with the X-men and the Blackbird jet.

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.

It will be a Target Exclusive of only 1963 available on the WalMart website shipping via Walgreens to those who have a Hasbro Pulse Premium Membership limited to one that will be handed off to USPS by UPS who got it from FedEx before cancelling the order so no one knows it turns into Stan Lee with Wolverine claws and a blast effect that goes over his eyes.  It also turns green when placed in hot water.

The only X-men character I would be ok with the robot mode being based on is Cerebro. Other than wanting it to follow Gigawatt, Ectotron and Maverick in being an original TF character who teams up with what it's crossing over with I'm surprised but cool with this.

-ZacWilliam, Wonder if the backstory or comic tie in if there is one will draw on the IDW "Outlier" lore which was basically the TF version of Mutants and X-men already.

If it has the forward-swept wings, it won't be based on any real licensed jet, so they won't have transformation-limiting design demands like Maverick did.  And people should sooner expect a Kingclonus retool than CW Silverbolt.    

 

As far as names go....

 

Autobot Blackbird

Cerebro

Uncannex

Atomchild

Genosha

X-Wing (lol)

Seems like it'd be really cool to see the Blackbird transform and fight a Sentinel.

I would prefer new character. Maybe:

Blackbird
Genex
Cerebros
X-Brawn

But I would accept Cerebro, Warlock or Danger homages.

Yeah, the only thing that would really kill it for me would be a giant metal "Star Wars Transformers" style human-robot version of a non-robotic X character.

I wouldn't be surprised if it had an element from an X-Men worked into its design. Like a Cerebros helmet, Cyclops visor, or Wolverine mask.

I'd like it if the robot had a female form rather than male, since the best X-Men are all women. A Lockheed robot mode rather than a human would be cool too.
