The Allspark is one of the first Transformers sites I've been to where there's no weird hero worship of the staff or two or three staffers who are weirdly aggressive about certain transformers related topics and never fail to show it. This is probably the first site in my near two decades in the fandom I can post and not feel I'm a few steps away from falling afoul of some unwritten rule that will cause people to pile on, so yay Allspark.

I'm really not surprised.

@  Nevermore : (27 April 2017 - 04:16 AM)

Well, the users over on TFW in return accuse the Allspark of being an elitist clique that ostracizes everyone who doesn't act like they do (i.e. civil), whereas TFW is more welcoming to everyone regardless of their views.

@  Pennpenn : (27 April 2017 - 03:23 AM)

Hard G. I don't give a solitary shit what the creators call it, the first word in the acronym is "Graphical". I have no idea why they'd think any sane human could, would, or should pronounce it any other way.

@  SHIELD Agent 47 : (27 April 2017 - 03:13 AM)

I acknowledge what the creators say, but whether I remember to use their pronunciation or not is hit or miss. Heck, I think I usually think of it in my head as "gee-i-ef", in parallel to "JPG" and "PNG".

I do like their hard no-politics rule. Now that I do the occasional freelance writing for some local politics and I like zero percent of it my hobby space now. But holy cow, do they replace it with neck beard drama.

The terrible secret of the Allspark: We all have this twisted fetish for rational thought processes

@  lastmaximal : (26 April 2017 - 10:13 PM)

Not everyone likes everything, and people aren't blind to shortfalls or annoyances resulting from constraints of how the brand is handled. We make many a joke out of these things. But it's a rare thing when entitlement replaces logic on here, where that seems to be poster raison d'etre everywhere else.

@  lastmaximal : (26 April 2017 - 10:11 PM)

It's utterly weird how these here boards seem so impervious an oasis when it comes to that depth of idiocy. Worshipping 3p and demanding the official companies "step it up" and stop being so lazy? Insisting the movies be done THEIR way, crapping on every single thing revealed about the films or toyline, then whining that they can't find (insert hot movie to here) or the official release of a movie figure doesn't capture the look in the film they hated? Etc

@  lastmaximal : (26 April 2017 - 10:09 PM)

It's not even a "brand pissing contest" or "board loyalty" thing, not least due to the fact that those don't really even happen here all that much. I'm just happy to be with levelheaded people who've outgrown the usual fan dumb tropes. You can have a civilized conversation here and people don't shit on things only to hide behind "but but but to each their own right?" when their myopic BS is challenged.

@  lastmaximal : (26 April 2017 - 10:07 PM)

With each time nonsense like this flares up on tfw or on local discussion venues (and it does quite a bit) I'm just reminded of why I've essentially been allspark bound for the last... Fifteen or so years.

@  Noideaforaname : (26 April 2017 - 10:07 PM)

On the plus side, tho, TFW has "appreciation threads" for practically everything, even stuff like Kre-O and PCC. And their toy database is quite handy.

@  Noideaforaname : (26 April 2017 - 10:03 PM)

I've been happily posting on TFW for years. Then, after being *here* for a few months, I look back and wonder how the hell I even bothered with it. I mean, my ignore list had hundreds of people on it. Literally HUNDREDS of ignored people. I even showed off said gargantuan list once (with a small thumbnail that you couldn't read any of the names on, mind you). That... that really should have been a warning sign, I suppose...

One of the reveal the shield news threads at TFW has movie fans and G1 fans arguing over who has it worse

@  WorkbenchManiac : (26 April 2017 - 06:49 PM)

You got me awfully curious. What thread ware we talking about?

@  Diecast : (26 April 2017 - 02:17 PM)

@  Diecast : (26 April 2017 - 02:04 PM)

@  ▲ndrusi : (26 April 2017 - 11:08 AM)

To clarify on point 1 since I was typing early in the morning again, "you must hate exactly what I hate" and "you msut like exactly what I like" aren't actually the same statement but they're the same thought process which is "my opinions are objective facts." If you see someone espousing one, they're probably thinking the other, too.

@  lastmaximal : (26 April 2017 - 10:57 AM)

... what.

@  Bass X0 : (26 April 2017 - 10:15 AM)

Andrusi, I imagine to some people online, there isn't that much of a world of difference, at least going by the venom they post; although not at RiD specifically.

@  unluckiness : (26 April 2017 - 08:55 AM)

The scale of liking and hating is an interval one so you can not like something but not hate it. Pretty sure there's apathy and dislike in between there at least.

@  wonko the sane? : (26 April 2017 - 08:07 AM)

And humans are perfectly capable of hating things in unison while being divided on liking.

@  ▲ndrusi : (26 April 2017 - 07:34 AM)

On the other hand, there's a world of difference between "I hate RID" and "I hate Nazis."

@  ▲ndrusi : (26 April 2017 - 07:27 AM)

On one hand, "hating what I hate" IS "liking what I like." One of those cultures can't be worse than the other because they're literally the same culture.

@  ▲ndrusi : (26 April 2017 - 07:26 AM)

I think that comparison is both an oversimplification AND a meaningless distinction.

@  wonko the sane? : (26 April 2017 - 07:16 AM)

That's the internet effect. Distance and anonimity make for easy and consequence-less extremism.

@  Bass X0 : (26 April 2017 - 06:58 AM)

I think the aggressive "How dare you not hate exactly what I hate" culture online is worse than the aggressive "How dare you not like exactly what I like" culture.

@  MEDdMI : (26 April 2017 - 06:19 AM)

Or as ghosts. I guess ghosts would be acceptable.

@  LBD "Nyt... : (26 April 2017 - 05:57 AM)

For now, I'd just find some small comfort in knowing those who have passed actually are in some sort of better place.

@  LBD "Nyt... : (26 April 2017 - 05:56 AM)

I'd find comfort in knowing that one way or another, that suffering would eventually end and a new, potentially happier beginning awaits.

@  MEDdMI : (26 April 2017 - 05:54 AM)

@LBD At the same time, I can't imagine wanting to stay in even a happy afterlife when fleshies are still suffering.

@  2017 : (26 April 2017 - 05:49 AM)

Celebrating and welcoming death just gives them more ideological hoops to justify killing others. So yeah, no thanks.

we're lucky to met FPJ's boss at fans party,I've asked question about their future products.

2.remember prehistory gestalt we've seen before?still design stage,they want this set has the feeling like G1 gestalt toys,but plus more funs.they are considering this gestalt can exchange limbs with Seacons.
3.remember broadside we've seen before?we will see prototype soon,but our conversation interrupted by others.


So FansProject is still working on the Junkions, Prehistoric Combiner, and Broadside robot. The Combiner can exchange limbs with Scramble City type Combiners.

So is this Targetmaster Optimus a tiny Optimus who turns into a gun, or a big Optimus with a gun that turns into a guy, or a weirdly misnamed thing, or what?

Also that Constructicon image tells me nothing except that there will be a shovel involved.

The Constructicon is intreguing. I'd like to see more and know more about him. How big is he? What's his robot mode like? Is the the first of more to come? Will he combine with friends?

I know we don't have the answers to those questions yet. Just wanted to pose them while they were on my mind.

Ooh, wonder if these are replacement Constructicons for Classics/Energon Devastator, ala the "Swindle" and "Blast Off".

I have to say, this group of fans keeps the bar high for creativity. Rather than shrinking molds or adding new wings, they invent cool new stuff that works within the world of TF.

I know it's unlicensed, but goddamn does that SD Optimus look nice. When they first showed the original idea, with the monkey head, my immediate thought was, "That would look a LOT better with the real head." There's a shortage of cool SD transforming Transformers. Very tempted to get one. Sorry Hasbro! /=)

The Headmasters and Targetmaster are an easy pass. Constructicon guy looks interesting--maybe something along the lines of FP's Bruticus?

Judging by the pictures, the heads appear to be compatible with G1 Headmasters. Pick your Headmaster body of choice.

Yes, he said Soundwave transforms into his alt mode, he just didn't get to snap a picture.

Given the name and the tinyness, Targetmaster Prime apparently transforms into a gun, like the Perfect Effect Rumble/Frenzy toys.

They need to release a Targetmaster for Classic Rodimus.

Another idea is a Targetmaster for Alternators Rodimus that turns into a humanoid who can drive the car?

With all these new Headmaster heads, someone needs to make a simple, articulated "drone"/Transtector headless body that can have any Headmaster attach to it. Make it in several colors. Then you can use it for things like these guys or Snake/Cobra/Hothead, whatever.

Other then making funny pics showing Optimus with his Target/Headmasters stating "Stop playing with yourself!" I see no reason for these toys... Why would we want to put a G1 Prime or Soundwave head on another headmaster's torso? There aren't even headmasters for whom Prime's head would look on. Maybe Hosehead, but he is a smaller type of headmaster.

What WOULD have been amazing if they made a fusion cannon for G1/Classics Megatron that is a targetmaster. I designed such a toy for a friend of mine.
