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)

Its Bass X0. I named myself after my three favourite Mega Man characters - Bass, X and Zero. I did consider going with Vile Bass X0, but that would have been going too far.

Figured a catch all thread would be a good idea. I'll try and update this post as things are either leaked, rumored, revealed or disproven.

Will change title when we know name of next year's line.

These are at this time, just rumors. So grains of salt as always.

Additional Info

Theme is more like Thrilling 30. Characters from varied eras.
Strong lean on G1 and BW in light of high performance of early Kingdom and Studio 86 sales.
Some UT characters mixed in as well.

Combiners not an overlying theme. Might be one a year. Menasor up first. Defensor may follow in 2023, still early development.

Update: 04/03/2021

Apollux (our original Kingdom leaker) has mentioned that G1 Skids is also on the list of potential releases for 2022.

The theme and possible name for the new trilogy starting in 2022 is Legacy. Which will build up to the 40th anniversary of the brand in 2024....Christ I feel old.

Removed the vintage bw stuff as that now exists and has its own discussion threads.
 
Update 04/26/2021
 
Part one of the new Trilogy is called Evolution (working title)
So if it follows the WFC model. Itll be Transformers Legacy Trilogy: Evolution

Update 05/03/2021

Removed info from the newest leaker as it's been debunked by some of the more credible info sources.

Added wave 1 of Studio series for 2022 per computer listings

Update 05/04 Added Prime Bulkhead and Optimus, G1 Insecticons, G1 Blitzwing and Straxus to the list.

 

Update 05/19, Moved Blaster to Kingdom. Shuffled Kingdom deluxes based on new info from jtprime.  Removed figures that have been officially revealed.

 

Update: 5/21 Removed the recent;y confirmed 86 and SG Characters.Gnaw, Wreck-gar, Slag and SG Starscream  Added Prime Arcee to Legacy 2022 list.  Moved Swoop to unkown line for now.  Added SS figures to list of rumors. Mainline Titans not dead. 

I'll update as I see more stuff.

Cheers

I enjoy CW Motormaster, but it would be really cool to have a new toy of him that actually uses his original design. I do wonder what the limbs would be like if the torso is a leader - deluxe limbs like CW or Voyager?

Well, 'leader' doesn't always mean what it used to, I could easily see something like TR Optimus as a tractor-trailer without a detachable trailer section, that compacts its largely hollow mass to become a robot or a torso.

 

Next rumor, the Stuticons/Harry Potter crossover, the Menasorting hat.

I only picked up the G2 CW Stunticon set because I have the G1 originals, so I would be interested in how a new take turns out. That said, I would be more likely to bite on another G2 version of either Menasor or Defensor than on the normal G1 versions.

Thanks for keeping us updated on the rumors!

Motormaster isn't the best torso so a second crack at that that is backwards compatible would be alright.

Pretty random though if we are now going to start redoing combiners.

Menasor is one of those combiners that often looks like a single big bot with cars hanging off his limbs. I wonder if Motormasters arms and legs couldnt be made to fold out to form Menasor, and the other Stunticons just clip in. Sort of like a GoBot Power Suit, but with less suit? Wouldnt be a true Scramble City-style combination, but might be made to be more stable.

I think the CW Motor Master suffered from a bunch of bad choices and a damand for it to be repainted and given a new head as Optimus prime thus include the iconic chest window desgin for him, the stuntacons on their own are desent but the combined mode is pretty much the weakest torso bot they made, the Dinobot combiner had a better torso with Grimlock, I even like Sky reign as a combiner!

 

Anyway, I hope Blaster is pretty much his G1 look and they do some of his partners, thou I do hope that none end up as apart of a Generations select pack, I felt like Soundwave's minons got shafted when they did that. The Dinobots I'll likely get, Coronation Starscream kind of has me curious, will it be ER SS with same paint job and new accessories or will it be a grey and black repaint so that we can recreate his death scene from 86 movie?

 

Tarantulas, not really sure, I not been a big fan of his first forms in BW, I much prefer his second form after he became transmetal.

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.

A new Transmetal Cheetor would have lips probably. I think there are enough strange engineering decisions in Kingdom Cheetor that would make perfect sense as pre-tools for the TM version. The side flaps, the extra joints in the cheetah forelegs, the tail, the mystery loincloth joint.

Heh, 'just reissue TM Megatron without the GPS' has long been a fantasy of mine. Never dreamed they would actually do it, but we just got Prime Breakdown so who knows?

 

Combiner Wars really rushed things and ended up with a lot of repaints and weird choices, and they're so expensive on the aftermarket now, so doing them all over again but taking their time with things would be great. Movie Devastator got me interested in a Bruticus again, I'd love to have a Shuttle Blast Off from the start and a Swindle who turns into an actual thing.
