The 1988 G1 line up could all have been done as Titan Master things, I figure the Pretenders could be done as Titan Master Drones and Prime Master shells.

@  Cyoti : (08 May 2021 - 11:14 AM)

Perfect is the enemy of the good. And it's still better than making him a remold of RTS Jazz as planned originally. Fact of the matter is: Nightbeat is just not a priority with Hasbro.

@  Demovere Xeno : (08 May 2021 - 08:58 AM)

Generations Nightbeat never really scratched that itch sadly; he looked okay, but his transformation was fiddly, his robot mode had far too many bits and pieces flopping around unsecured, and his chest dragged along the surface in var mode. =/

@  Demovere Xeno : (08 May 2021 - 08:57 AM)

I second wishing that we got a Deluxe Nightbeat from TR, mostly because as a kid he was second-in-command to my old Powermaster Optimus for the longest time. =P

@  tigerhawk : (08 May 2021 - 05:41 AM)

Wipe Out and Wilder it coulda been: Wipe Out is down in the dumps because the Scramble City Trypticon was destroyed and left him a drifting to the point he arrives in Legends World, he finds Wilder and both go on a crime spree subverted by their realisation neither gets any joy from it until they stop a violent crook together and become anti heroes. (Bass XO beat me!)

@  Bass X0 : (08 May 2021 - 05:39 AM)

Yes, Nightbeat and Siren would have been easy remolds of Chromedome - just give them new chests and each other's Titan Master heads. Fangry and Squeezeplay would be remolded from Twinferno with their own Titan Master heads. And Horri-Bull would have been remolded from Wolfwire.

@  Rycochet : (07 May 2021 - 05:10 PM)

Surprised we didn't get a full size retool from the monsterbot mold. I'd rather have a CW Ironhide retool though, we need a van Wilder.

I just noticed Wilder was the only omission from Takara Legends.

Even more weirdly, it was the early shift where some people had their regular day off for the week, while the late shift was supposed to have full attendance (not counting sick days, vacations and overtime reduction).

@  Nevermore : (07 May 2021 - 01:15 AM)

The weirdest part was that there was a steady influx of voters during the early shift, while hardly anyone showed up during the late shift.

@  Nevermore : (07 May 2021 - 01:14 AM)

It's a fairly well known fact that "it's a wonderful life" only became popular after it dropped into the public domain. So, yeah, they probably did.

@  SHIELD Agent 47 : (02 May 2021 - 08:29 PM)

I read an interesting observation on Twitter. If it is the natural course of a human to grow into Grandpa Abe yelling at a cloud, but nostalgia also yields rose-tinted glasses for the likes of one's youth, then did Greatest Generation adults bemoan how Baby Boomer children loved box office flops such as The Wizard of Oz and It's a Wonderful Life?

@  Otaku : (02 May 2021 - 09:26 AM)

At the same time, with my almost non-existent knowledge of Japanese and how oddly some things translate, seeing "Gorgeous Giorgios Gorges" made me wonder if that would make it "JoJoJo"... which now has my brain terrified of a weird Bobobo-bo Bo-bobo/Jojo's Bizarre Adventure Crossover. @[email protected]

@  Otaku : (02 May 2021 - 09:24 AM)

It is always weird when things align.  This talk of Gorgeous Giorgios Gorges in the SquawkBox reminded me of King Gorgeous Gorge on the FoxBox.

@  -LittleAutob... : (01 May 2021 - 08:52 PM)

@  Nevermore : (01 May 2021 - 09:03 AM)

I got one even better: After that character by the name of Gorgeous Giorgios dies in a gorge, they name that whole area after him: The Gorgeous Giorgios Gorges.

@  tigerhawk : (30 April 2021 - 01:56 AM)

Paint apps did slide notably during TR, wave one's Titan Masters had detail but wave 2 onwards was absent of them. Wave 5's Ramhorn, Dreadnaut, Scorchfire and Aimless had detail but Murk and Hazard didn't, can't speak for Flameout as I got Legends Twintwist and Slugslinger.

Anyone here got any g1 jet fire parts for sale?

@  wonko the sane? : (29 April 2021 - 04:12 PM)

Other than a few overly tight joints, the paints apps are my single complaint about the generations line.

@  tigerhawk : (29 April 2021 - 02:25 PM)

I just saw Legends Leo Prime now I wish Titans Return Alpha Trion had a few more paint apps for ship mode.

Blaster Master, Bionic Commando.

What was that one game where your character had his hands or arms replaced with robot ones, and you go around smashing stuff... You could get little robot helpers depending on what letter combinations you picked up.

If it's that Angry Video Game Nerd moron, I'd take advice from a Wal-Mart employee before I'd trust him. Any game he sucks at, he swears at a lot. He sucks at a lot of games.

Seriously, the first TMNT game was my favorite of them. I never actually beat it (actually, I don't think I ever beat any Turtles game except Turtles in Time on SNES), but it was a decent platformer.

Also, A Nightmare on Elm Street was pretty fun, especially if you can get four people together to pay as a group (which will require the four-controller accessory, but hey).

*sighs* Let me guess. You're thinking that I'm basing my entire argument based on what like four people I know have said right?

I've been on at least three different message boards, all of which have had a thread about 'What games do you think sucked' and which when this game was meantioned, was agreed that it was pretty bad. Only one or two people saying otherwise.

Also have talked to many people in real life. Can't say the exact number, but it's been an estimate of 20 or more. All of agreed it's pretty bad.

Pretty much 90% of the people I've met who know of the game all say it sucks. So It's my understanding that it's pretty universally agreed that it sucks.

I'm not saying it will suck for everyone, but chances are...

But really in retrospec that can be a very bad argument as Final Fantasy VII is pretty universally agreed that it's the best RPG ever. Which it isn't.

In conclusion though, in the end it's up to the person who started this thread. They'll decide if they want to play it or not.

Metal Storm, if you can find it. It's a side scroller game where you play a mech style robot. The graphics are quite good, animation is very smooth and it's the only NES game I know of with parallax backgrounds. The best part of the game though is the controls, they're very responsive. And you can flip gravity and walk on the ceiling. Many of the stages are complex and imaginative, requiring you to flip gravity several times to figure out how to advance to the next section. The boss battles are fun too, most of them featuring very large sprites, something else not found in many NES games.

It's not very long and it's quite challenging, you can pick up powerups but it's mostly one hit and you're dead. Still it's fun to play and one of the best NES games I can think of.

Lostorbit said it right and the music is quite good as well

Dont forget that it had two seprate models after you get an "A" powerup the Gunners armor changes the level designs are great and the later boss battles are inginious

Heres a little bit of trivia

The boss of Level 4 made an apperance in Irems R-Type Final


Also Heavy Berrel is a great Arcade shooter

My favourite NES titles:

Crystalis.
Metroid.
Super Mario Bros. 2.

Aside from that, it really depends on what you like. If you're into RPGs, I would recommend Final Fantasy 1 and Dragon Warrior 3.

I give up. This is the first message board I've been on to have any love for this game.

I mean I've never hated the game and pretty much exaggerated how one shouldn't pick it up, just because I figured people would be pretty indifferent to the game. That, and I tend to do that from time to time. Really I don't think anyone is missing anything if they skip the first turtles game. It's faults were a bit too much for my (and as stated most people I've met) tastes. It's a mediocre platformer at best.

But I give. Maybe I missed something. I'll have to go play my copy sometime and see if anything changed since I last played it.

I'm sorry I said anything.

considering i just played(and beat it) again last month, i'm gonna say nostalgia isn't the deciding factor on why i like the game.



Yes, it's very difficult in a couple of areas, but no more difficult than, say, getting used to defeating robot masters in Megaman. If you've got enough control to withstand the patterns of them, then TMNT holds no horrors for you.

Beyond that, I liked the combination of gameplay elements then, and would enjoy and update to it now. the overworld map where you can cruise in the turtle van, hunt out different buildings for the side scroller levels, different items you can use, almost like Castlevania. Even the ability to rescue a captured comrade in later levels.

And, some of the bosses really just requires you use a specific turtle to beat them, so there's a bit of a strategy element.


People who throw down their controller because they can't get past the dam stage, then proceed to say "this game sucks" because of it, well, just lazy imo. most NES games take a few times of practice here and there.

don't get me wrong, i also enjoy TMNT 2 and 3 in their arcade style, but save for Tournament Fighters, which as a fighting game is in and of itself an arcade style, they've not really made a TMNT game w/ the variety to it the first one had.

I'll admit, the game had some neat ideas, but all in all they didn't mess together well when I played. The dam level was just the straw that broke the camel's back. But as I've said before: I don't really hate the game, I just find it as a mediocre platformer at best. I could beat the game no problem. If I can beat the orginal NES Ninja Gaiden, and Castlevania 1 and 3, then this game won't be much of a problem. I just have no desire to really do so.

We all love our games that most people hate. I myself Love the PS2 game 'Galerians: Ash' That game isn't exactly loved by many. Hell I've found the game sealed for sale in a fry's for 3.99. People do NOT like this game, but I personally loved it.

Still doesn't change the fact that most people aren't going to enjoy it.
