Jellystone. We're going to be plunged into a decade of poor animation. Fortunately we've been led by bad cartoon characters for years so we won't notice much difference.

congratulations to all survivors of the first half of 2020.

@  wonko the sane? : (30 June 2020 - 10:21 PM)

21 for me, but after numerous repetitions I got it down to 17 and a half.

@  -LittleAutob... : (30 June 2020 - 05:55 PM)

x-x when in vehicle mode we can travel much F A R T H E R-

@  wonko the sane? : (30 June 2020 - 05:52 PM)

Because despite the fact that we can travel around the world in the time it takes to get a good nights sleep and a couple of meals: people rarely wander more than 25 miles away from home for the duration of their lives.

@  Otaku : (30 June 2020 - 05:49 PM)

I don't know how many days that trip takes - especially while sightseeing - but explaining they're 3936 kilometers (2445 miles) apart gives an idea, paradoxically because it is too large to easily picture.

@  Otaku : (30 June 2020 - 05:44 PM)

Aye.  When I catch lay people discussing miles and not how long the trip takes, it is in an attempt to stress how far away something is... like NYC to LA.

@  ▲ndrusi : (30 June 2020 - 01:20 PM)

But I can imagine 45 *minutes* easily.

@  ▲ndrusi : (30 June 2020 - 01:20 PM)

I can imagine a mile, it's a distance I've run. I can't really imagine 45 miles.

@  ▲ndrusi : (30 June 2020 - 01:19 PM)

I think there's also an element of the thing where things that are much bigger than us all blur together.

@  Otaku : (30 June 2020 - 11:49 AM)

If you're not, then you're more concerned with how long it takes.  Actual distance doesn't tell you that very well.  Besides traffic and road conditions, you'll need to know what kind of driving (city/interstate/rural/etc.).

@  Otaku : (30 June 2020 - 11:47 AM)

Distance matters if you're being paid by the mile.

@  TM2-Megatron : (30 June 2020 - 11:44 AM)

Canadians are the same way, for the most part. If you're driving somewhere far, especially, it helps you plan out the day more than a distance in KM would.

@  Otaku : (30 June 2020 - 11:42 AM)

We use the time it takes to get someplace because that is what is relevant to us.

@  TheMightyMol... : (30 June 2020 - 10:55 AM)

Because even we can't figure out miles half the time.

@  Paladin : (30 June 2020 - 09:54 AM)

it's a big country with a lot of empty space. between our citizens' ears.

@  Bass X0 : (30 June 2020 - 09:52 AM)

Why do most Americans measure distance by hours of driving?

@  TM2-Megatron : (29 June 2020 - 07:26 PM)

And as a result the world's lone blu-ray release of the film, an Australian disc that came out 7 years ago, now goes for hundreds of dollars on eBay. Thanks Disney.

@  TM2-Megatron : (29 June 2020 - 06:21 PM)

Well, they censored Daryl Hannah's butt in Splash :rolleyes

@  Nevermore : (29 June 2020 - 09:43 AM)

I definitely don't intend to be reissued. Nobody would buy me.

@  Bass X0 : (29 June 2020 - 08:31 AM)

will anybody else attempt to be reissued?

@  wonko the sane? : (29 June 2020 - 07:51 AM)

*Gasp* Decepticons re-writing history to serve their own needs?!?!

@  Nevermore : (29 June 2020 - 05:48 AM)

The whole point of the DJD is that they're fanatical Megatron fanboys (especially Tarn) to the point of having their own headcanon taking priority of the actual canon, simply speaking.

@  TheMightyMol... : (29 June 2020 - 04:01 AM)

They didn't know the war was over until later. And then they denied it anyway.

@  PlutoniumBoss : (28 June 2020 - 10:47 PM)

"He's comin' right for us!"

@  Telly : (28 June 2020 - 08:40 PM)

was that even still in effect once the war ended?

@  TheMightyMol... : (28 June 2020 - 06:51 PM)

According to Roberts, soldiers can ignore the order to spare Whirl if he's directly threatening them. But mostly the DJD were out of their heads on Nuke and not really caring much at the time.

@  Xaaron : (28 June 2020 - 06:41 PM)

Also, they were hopped up on goofballs at the time.

@  wonko the sane? : (28 June 2020 - 06:06 PM)

Cause it was whirl. He opened his (non-existant.) gob at the just the right time to piss somebody off. Or, so I assume.

@  Maximus Ambus : (28 June 2020 - 06:00 PM)

If Whirl was off limits why did the DJD kill him?

@  TM2-Megatron : (27 June 2020 - 05:57 PM)

That sounds about right. I actually didn't get into it until the IQ expansion came out (which saved me a bit of expense)

@  Otaku : (27 June 2020 - 05:55 PM)

Weird question (and sorry for so many shouts): did Overpower really release in August of '95?  I could have sworn I attempted to play it with a classmate who shouldn't have been a classmate by that point.

@  Otaku : (27 June 2020 - 05:52 PM)

So... I don't have all my cards still somewhere. XP I still play Pokémon via the PTCGO, and I've been doing Card of the Days over on Pojo (on and off) since 2013.

@  Otaku : (27 June 2020 - 05:51 PM)

For both financial, personal, and practical reasons, all my collectibles had to go about 10 years ago: action figures, comic books, card games, RPG books, video games.

@  TM2-Megatron : (27 June 2020 - 05:48 PM)

I've still got all my cards, somewhere; I had a pretty decent collection. Still have the Japanese Digimon CCG, too. Glad I never got into Magic; way too pricey

@  Otaku : (27 June 2020 - 05:36 PM)

Technically, Overpower was my first TCG... except I never, ever learned how to play it, or understood that booster packs contained different cards than the Starter Decks.

FYI: Hutch has an even larger res version of his AHM #15 incentive Perceptor cover up at his devArt account:


All Hail Megatron cover 15 by ~trevhutch on deviantART



Go forth and praise him for being visually awesome. Hopefully Casey'll throw his cover up soon too.

Yeah, I think SDCC is when we'll know...to paraphrase Chris's comment, it was something like, "I don't know what you're talking about...but we will have big TF news at Comicon".

And yep, Denton said November, and then CODA was said in a solicit to set up the ongoing series.

Also, yeah, I'd be circumspect if I were them, too, considering some of the divide in the fandom on AHM (It's a lot more contentious outside of this board, where it usually falls on negative agreement); it has settled down into fairly civil discourse on IDW's boards where I post, though. Although me, I love to see some healthy eye-clawing, biting, scratching debate...it's more fun than all praise or all criticism. icon-fire.gif I just like to stand on the sidelines, rather than really get into it myself; just don't wanna show that easily ticked-off side of myself online.

You know, for all my bellyaching about Animated likely never having a decent story continuation or universe revisit, I have to give props to the Hasbro team; they love Animated, and it shows. I mean, I thought for sure the remaining Starscream Clones, Wasp, and Ironhide were all likely Botcon fodder, but Hasbro goes and gives me a pleasant surprise by going that extra mile. Of course, there's still Liar Starscream to worry about, but heck, the mold might not even be able to take another re-deco, the mold was flimsy even back when we were just getting Starscream. Liar Starscream, the Autotroopers, and Earth modes of all of Bumblebee's 'protoform siblings' are the only ones unaccounted for that could be potential convention exclusives, and that's something.

Well, once the toys they've already planned for are out, there's no reason for Hasbro or anyone to keep the Animated line going.

Your only hope is an eventual revisit in that year's equivalent of Universe a few years down the road. But it's far from likely.

I'd like to see a Deluxe mold for her, would be more possible. The Voyage mold it too masculine. It'd need its arms remolded as well as the head.

While I agree that the Voyager mold would be absolutely awful for that, I think that the Activator could work. Or the Legend. They seemingly lean more towards being gender neutral than the big mold.

Just a further note on upcoming stories in AHM CODA - it was noted by poster Beachcomber over on the IDW forums that:

"Beachcomber wrote:
Nick's story appears to be pre-Drift. Brainstorm makes an appearance too, just to tease you sciencebot fiends. ;P
Perceptor has a separate story, and Kup is obviously re-built before he goes on that mission with the Wreckers in SL: Drift anyway.

Anything beyond that isn't really my place to discuss, regardless of what I know beyond seeing the artwork. :]
"

So we know Nick's doing the Kup story, and the Perceptor one is separate. Who it's written by is unknown. So that would make up the two stories in issue 15 of AHM, leaving us with just one unknown story in issue 16.
