I'm kinda glad. A couple tie-in stories aside, Secret Invasion was a mess.

@  Steevy Maximus : (28 May 2017 - 07:23 AM)

Almost makes you wonder if some of the aborted Micronauts relaunch concept didn't slip in...

@  Whirl Maximus : (28 May 2017 - 07:20 AM)

Titan Masters could quite easily have been Transformers: Secret invasion, the return of the Mini-cons/Stentarians but noooooo, it had to be whatever the pit it is.

TMM, free shipping

@  unluckiness : (27 May 2017 - 07:33 PM)

Even if it's just 4 bucks, people shouldn't be patronizing obvious scams.

@  TheMightyMol... : (27 May 2017 - 05:37 PM)

What's the shipping price?

@  Steevy Maximus : (27 May 2017 - 05:18 PM)

Yeah, but it's cheaper than all the Hong Kong sellers running at $65+

@  2017 : (27 May 2017 - 05:07 PM)

It sounds like a scam.

@  Steevy Maximus : (27 May 2017 - 04:32 PM)

I know, RIGHT?!

Part of me is screaming "no", and part of me says "It's just four bucks, hit it and hope for the best".

Grax is only invisible when no one is looking at them. No idea what's wrong with your Xort.

@  Whirl Maximus : (27 May 2017 - 04:16 AM)

Titan Masters is filled with false advertising, Grax doesn't make any figure invisible and Xort doesn't do anything with gravity. Maybe they'll be in the Transformer toys of tomorrow which will be actual robots with AI.

@  Echowarrior : (26 May 2017 - 09:16 PM)

Thor was a great guy. Same as most of the Asgard. Loki was a jerk, though.

@  wonko the sane? : (26 May 2017 - 07:21 PM)

I think thor was just too smart to NOT call us stupid next to him.

@  Pennpenn : (26 May 2017 - 07:18 PM)

Six of one, half a dozen of the other?

@  wonko the sane? : (26 May 2017 - 07:17 PM)

I always interpreted that scene to mean that asgardians weren't capable of breaking down problems in the same way as humans.

@  Pennpenn : (26 May 2017 - 06:58 AM)

I mean, SG1 was a good show on balance. One of my favourite things was Thor admitting he found humans good to keep around because they so often came up with stupid ideas that nevertheless worked out.

@  Whirl Maximus : (26 May 2017 - 05:59 AM)

Those episodes were 1969 and 2010.

@  Whirl Maximus : (26 May 2017 - 05:59 AM)

Stargate sg1 was loosely based on the movie, it thrived on continuity it was impressive how old situations and solutions would come back in unexpected ways. Continuum had it's villain use the characters own solution in two previous episodes against them.

@  Pennpenn : (26 May 2017 - 05:39 AM)

And yeah, name is based on a part of my surname. Can't remember why I picked it. Lost to memories of the primordial early 2000s.

@  Pennpenn : (26 May 2017 - 05:37 AM)

Like how Abydos in the movie is in another galaxy on the far side of the universe, but Abydos in SG1 is the closest world to Earth (and that was the only reason the gate could still get there) and even getting to other galaxies was impossible with the normal gates.

@  Pennpenn : (26 May 2017 - 05:35 AM)

I was very tired when I said that, but what I meant was a lot of stuff that is in the original Stargate movie is contradicted a lot in Stargate SG1.

@  Tm_Silverclaw : (26 May 2017 - 12:48 AM)

I remember a fanfic that had Swindle as Lawyer.

@  SHIELD Agent 47 : (25 May 2017 - 10:08 PM)

No, I am referring to before Beast Wars: Uprising. I swear Swindle was a lawyer in a story before "A Brush With Infamy".

@  Telly : (25 May 2017 - 09:47 PM)

i cant get the link to work for the life of me. just go to the wiki and type "a brush with infamy" in the search box and itll come up

@  Telly : (25 May 2017 - 09:40 PM)

grr. check the post above this one. stupid non working link and i cant delete shouts...

@  SHIELD Agent 47 : (25 May 2017 - 09:25 PM)

I swear I've read the story but now I forget which one it is.

@  SHIELD Agent 47 : (25 May 2017 - 09:25 PM)

When has G1 Swindle been a lawyer before?

@  Rycochet : (25 May 2017 - 07:20 PM)

All I know about PennPenn is he's so good they named him twice.

@  Tm_Silverclaw : (25 May 2017 - 07:02 PM)

Nope.. Pennpenn is actually a Prinny dood!

@  Foffy : (25 May 2017 - 06:47 PM)

I wonder if Pennpenn is related to Sean Penn.

@  Kalidor : (25 May 2017 - 04:31 PM)

PennPenn - What are you talking about?

@  wonko the sane? : (25 May 2017 - 02:13 PM)

It's the only way for wisconsin to build it's population.

Prequel creep?

@  Pennpenn : (25 May 2017 - 09:47 AM)

The prequel-creep from the original Stargate movie to SG1 is kinda funny.

@  Paladin : (25 May 2017 - 08:12 AM)

Movie and Animated is easy to explain into the retcon.
The Allsparks are how Primus chose to take form in those universes, and Unicron has yet to show up.

IDW continuity is already in a bit of a mess without bringing Primus and Unicron in.

Honestly, linking the "universes" like that was about as stupid a move as could be made since it really limits possibilities to do things differently.

Is SG Swoop supposed to be modeled after Armada Ravenous? It said he was dark green with red claws.


If they released this as a club figure you could use him as Ravenous or SG swoop. Very cool.

HIGHLIGHT to view:
Roadblock. You can tell by the grille. It works better anyway, what with the constructionny hook implement.

Huh... so we would get

Energon Hauler. ... maybe.

I'm guessing that if you are reading the fourth page of a thread about a story, you either already read it or want to know about it. I never considered casting or setup to be a "spoiler" anyways, just the surprises and the finale.

I mentioned the double use of figures in the figure thread. If the club did make these toys they could release two sets of stickers for them, and you choose which toy you want to make of it... Classic Hauler or SG Ratchet... Armada Ravenous or SG Swoop... Classic Slicer or SG Wheeljack.

Ehn, not really. You don't HAVE to address a lot of that stuff in Continuity X. Any future, say, Robots in Disguise story doesn't really need to address the whole Primus/Unicron thing.

Forever is a long time. Lots of time for Unicron to happen... later.

The Ravenous colors are intentional. There is leeway on which pterodactyl-style Dinosaur mold Swoop would be, but personally, I imagined Brimstone.

Good to see that people are enjoying the text stories. This one was fun to write, with all its fun, twisted-around characterizations and the chance to really explore the mirroverse cars. The mirrorverse is just a fun place to dabble. Plus Evan's artwork turned out great.

I look forward to feedback in any/every case.

The Brimstone mold is cool too. I always wondered why that mold never got a single repaint. There are pleanty of possibilities out there... Swoop, Terrorsaur, Lazorbeak, Hydra, Terranotron, Yokuryu from Dinoforce, and about a half dozen other obscure 'dactyl characters you could repaint him as. I thought Hasbro liked to make repaints and all... nothing.
