Ever notice Kath SOucie's Janine in the later episodes of Real Ghostbusters sounds like Tara Strong's Sari Sumdac?

@  Maximus Ambus : (28 September 2020 - 02:10 PM)

I wish they were more universal like Beast Wars, Animated or Prime and as professionally done,

@  Maximus Ambus : (28 September 2020 - 02:06 PM)

The Netflix shows are done for adults, the Generation toyline is for adults who grew up with G1.

Whatever happened to WFC Earthrise being a kids show X'D

@  wonko the sane? : (28 September 2020 - 11:43 AM)

Cool, my last tablet couldn't run it, and I stopped caring by the time I got the new one. So thanks!

@  Otaku : (28 September 2020 - 11:27 AM)

There are crossover characters, but the amount and distribution... Marvel Vs Capcom this ain't.  If @wonko the sane? my bad!

@  Otaku : (28 September 2020 - 11:21 AM)

I've been playing for *checks account* 1002 days, 23 hours.  So, by 2021, it will have been three years.  I think it takes place in its own continuity, largely inspired by G1 but borrowing from other places.

@  Otaku : (28 September 2020 - 11:19 AM)

@wonko the sane? Can only speak for Earth Wars, but so few they're easy to forget.

@  wonko the sane? : (28 September 2020 - 07:39 AM)

Didn't they already do the across universes thing in that tablet game?

@  Demovere Xeno : (28 September 2020 - 05:30 AM)

Also, make the setting an amalgamation of different Transformers series, rather than based on a specific one. Bring in things like 'Sentinel Major' as the primo Autobot jerk, and sleek car mode Vehicons as the Decepticons' basic grunt.

@  Demovere Xeno : (28 September 2020 - 05:27 AM)

KT just needs to incorporate the vehicle modes into the combat system, like Platinum did for Devastation, so they're for more than just wheeling it across the battlefield. =P

@  Demovere Xeno : (28 September 2020 - 05:25 AM)

Transformers: Warriors of Cybertron! =D

Man, I just want another Devastation game... =(

@  NotVeryKnightly : (28 September 2020 - 01:53 AM)

Aren't TFs way more varied than Joes, as far as they'd work in gameplay? Like, Omega Supreme is vastly different from Bumblebee.

@  unluckiness : (27 September 2020 - 10:16 PM)

Hell, ripoff Super Robot Wars withTFs

@  unluckiness : (27 September 2020 - 10:16 PM)

IDK they could make something like FF tactics or Fire Emblem ripoff with Robots and i'd buy it

@  Steevy Maximus : (27 September 2020 - 09:43 PM)

See, I feel GI Joe (with it's varied cast) is a better fit for a strategy game, where as Transformers feels more suited for a shooter.

@  Maruten : (27 September 2020 - 08:28 PM)

I might give them points for making a strategy game if it's actually a good strategy game.

@  wonko the sane? : (27 September 2020 - 07:48 PM)

I mean, points for making a strategy game instead of third person shooter, but: urrrrgggg. Cyberverse.

@  wonko the sane? : (27 September 2020 - 07:47 PM)

A transformers game for the switch? *checks* Urrrggg... cyberverse...

@  Steevy Maximus : (27 September 2020 - 06:28 PM)

October will be a big month for Hasbro fans: Zoids, GI Joe AND Transformers all have brand new console games. All on the Switch at that!

@  wonko the sane? : (27 September 2020 - 09:04 AM)

At least in animated he was more driven than just "loyal bootlick".

@  unluckiness : (27 September 2020 - 08:29 AM)

Oof, That's a huge downgrade

@  Maximus Ambus : (27 September 2020 - 02:35 AM)

After rewatching Animated Sound and Fury, in my head canon Titans Return Soundwave is that Soundwave.

@  wonko the sane? : (26 September 2020 - 04:09 PM)

On an unrelated note: I just got the BBTS email about kingdom pre-orders... and even the stuff I don't want I'm perfectly willing to get if it means I can have the rest of it.

@  wonko the sane? : (26 September 2020 - 04:08 PM)

It's digimon. So first one, then the other.

@  TheMightyMol... : (26 September 2020 - 12:53 PM)

50/50 odds, it's either a helicopter with limbs, or a scantily-clad human with heli blades on their back. If female, 90% odds on the second one.

@  NotVeryKnightly : (26 September 2020 - 12:39 PM)

I read that as "Helicoptermon" and wondered what kind of Digimon that was.

@  Bass X0 : (26 September 2020 - 12:35 PM)

Helicopter-mom, transform!

@  Maximus Ambus : (25 September 2020 - 11:58 PM)

Aw I scratched the hood of my 35th anniversary Bluestreak. Fortunately he's in robot mode a lot.

@  TheMightyMol... : (25 September 2020 - 05:04 PM)

The wall could use some decorating, though. Maybe a nice shelf or a portrait.

Beast Era, a blonde rat called Sunsqueaker.

@  TheMightyMol... : (24 September 2020 - 01:00 PM)

And then Knockout was in the wall again.

@  Sabrblade : (24 September 2020 - 12:53 PM)

Knockout: "Ooh, sorry, Lord Megatron. The correct word was... 'Decepticon'."

@  -LittleAutob... : (24 September 2020 - 11:15 AM)

Knockout: *while doing a crossword puzzle* Lord Megatron, whats a ten letter word for disappointment? | Megatron: ...... Starscream.

@  Maximus Ambus : (23 September 2020 - 01:20 PM)

@Bass X0 Shockwave did it.

@  TheMightyMol... : (23 September 2020 - 11:56 AM)

At least it's not Suntwerker.

@  wonko the sane? : (23 September 2020 - 11:19 AM)

I read that name as "suntweaker" the first time, and was terrified for a moment...

@  Bass X0 : (23 September 2020 - 03:41 AM)

Okay, I've been looking at this page, and am confused on one point: which UK volumes reprints material also in US volumes? And which are which?

No stories are reprinted in both US and UK volumes. The UK reprints are only doing UK-exclusive stories.

We now have the cover to Ruffolo's Sixshot book.

And... I think I might skip the issue. I know I'll end up buying the TPB, so it's not like I'll be missing out on the story.

M "Perspective. It's A Lost Fundamental" Sipher

It's really only severely lost on Rob Ruff and Pat Lee. Guido Guidi and EJ Su are rock solid on it, and Don Figueroa is on the ball 99% of the time. Ruffolo seems to have spent his time learning how to polish his coloring skills rather than decent perspective and proportions. I would hope, like Walky, that he's at least gotten his story direction act together.

Why did Ruffolo have to be on the issue I looked forward to the most?!

Sixshot is TALL, blast you! Do you get paid extra to draw the Pat Lee puffy-legs™? And, gah, the two chest-flaps aren't even at the same angle....

Ugh.

Just... ugh. You'd think he'd at least use an original pose. No wonder some of the IDW forum people are swooning over how "G1 box art"-esque it looks.

All we've seen is the cover and I already hate the thing. That's like a record.

Yeah it's gonna be a cool issue even though Ruffolo is a crappy "artist".

I'd like to see a 2nd wave of Decepticon infiltration unit in Nebulos, specifically the Head/Target masters. Maybe Furman could give a decent origin to the "binary bonding" process. It seems like a good possibility, since the jig was up when Thunderwing attacked Nebulos, perhaps giving them all new alt-modes to "fit in".

I'm pretty sure they're all Cybertronian, Thrust certainally is.

A "coincidence" of Nebulan and Cybryton vehicular technology would be lame. Maybe in a return adventure they'd not bother seeing there being no point and shift the story from desguise to something else.

Nebulan vehicles in the comic were like WWII war machines with a WWIII edge. I don't remember much from the cartoon except for some kind of giant killer excavator which I think became Skorponok. Neither fiction had the Transformers adapting to their technologies for alt-modes and kept them as Cybertronian/Futurisitc Earth ('cept for the animal HMs).

I'd assume that the Nebulan technology in IDW is very fuel-efficient, at least that's what I gather from that solar-powered plane thing. Like what Earth vehicles would be if we weren't reliant on fossil fuels.

Yeah I'm big on a continuity with longevity, which is why I never got into anything after Beast Machines. Well, I did a little, but I don't miss it. I think some Evolutions stories could be cool if they were really interesting, like a story set in the 50s during the Cold War with hot rod Autobots (even Tracks as a C1 Corvette) and you could play up the whole "alien robot death machines" which seemed to be the epitomy of what people thought were going to kill them back in those days. Sputnik Transformer? Rock on!

But on the other side, "Micromasters" was a part of the DW universe and was totally crappy so I skipped it and would've sooner bought "Hearts of Steel" had it come out then.

It's here as well -- I just don't really count covers as likely to be a good representation of the stuff inside. For some reason, that looks like a very low-res version with the lines rather uneven. There's lots more by him all over the web, though.
