I thought of something else about TFW2005 versus the Allspark. If Ignash was allowed back here, wouldn't that initiate lots of frustration and/or abandonment by people here?

they don't kill. they eat half of your face, and you're left with a hideous tumor where the barnacle is.

@  Locoman : (29 April 2017 - 03:49 PM)

Perhaps the barnacle, consumed with guilt at what he'd done, took his own life after killing everyone

@  Lazy Garou : (29 April 2017 - 02:28 PM)

parasitic barnacles are the stuff of nightmares

@  MEDdMI : (29 April 2017 - 01:39 PM)

But barnacles don't have- *checks* "The main sense of barnacles appears to be touch, with the hairs on the limbs being especially sensitive. The adult also has a single eye, although this is probably only capable of sensing the difference between light and dark.[4]†This eye is derived from the primary†naupliar eye." Huh.

@  ▲ndrusi : (29 April 2017 - 01:29 PM)

He looked in a mirror

@  Evac : (29 April 2017 - 01:26 PM)

He was killed by his own ugliness. Kind of a "Hoist by His Own Petard" thing.

@  MEDdMI : (29 April 2017 - 01:12 PM)

How did the barnacle get killed if everyone died from his ugliness?

@  Whirl Maximus : (29 April 2017 - 11:09 AM)

I've been watching clips of the Japanese dub of the Sunbow movie. Comes with added SCREAMS!

@  Bass X0 : (29 April 2017 - 09:57 AM)

But the ugly barnacle realised he would grow up to become a beautiful oyster. Only he was killed before then for being so ugly.

@  Locoman : (29 April 2017 - 09:46 AM)

That didn't help at all!

@  Evac : (29 April 2017 - 09:32 AM)

Once there was an ugly barnacle. He was so ugly, that everyone died! The end.

We've seen Hasbro lean towards CHUG and G1 style figures being painted to reflect their toys(Classics Astrotrain, MP Rodimus, etc) and we've seen Takara take those same figures and paint them to reflect their cartoon models. This question is inspired by that. If you were the product manager at Hasbro....which one would you choose/prefer?

I prefer cartoon overall, but I'd like it if Hasbro does toy and TakaraTomy does cartoon so we get both. Of course there should be leeway to make whatever deco look good and not omit details as a result (like the lack of painted details on MP Rodimus Prime's forearms and head come to mind for omitting details for trying to be really slavish to the original design).

I don't care for "accuracy" so much - I'd even take decos that are neither toy nor cartoon "accurate" but do the character justice overall.

I do like things like Classics Megatron though, whose colors seem to be inspired by his Action Master deco and Fusion Tank.

I'm ok with either type of homage, but I don't necessarily want either. I just want a good deco for the character. E.g., I vastly prefer Classics Starscream to the later Universe cartoon-homage Starscream. I like most of the Universe deco ok, but I absolutely hate the upside-down Decepticon symbols. I hated it in the original show, and I've hated every instance where it's been repeated since. Meanwhile, the fact that Classics Starscream's deco doesn't match either the toy or the cartoon is just fine by me.

Cartoon/Show accuracy. I can't think of too many off the top of my head who looked better as toys than on the show. Maybe the Technobots, but then they barely showed up on the show...

Although, mentioning Toon accuracy, can we get Octane as Grimlock, Cyclonus as Onslaught and some of the other AKOM flubbs?
Clearing out some old TFs and Mugenbine in my BST Thread. You know you want some of these.

Obviously carton accuracy. But with certain car guys, I like the toy sticker details like Mirage's classic sponsor logos or Prowl's proper police details that both versions were missing. That's what Reprolabels is for, at least when they're not pushing their tacky original sets.

I love this idea.

I don't care where is get their inspiration form so long as one can look at the file product and say with out a doubt, "That is Nightbeat, just look at the colors and the distinctive head."

I'm generally happy with whatever looks good, myself.

But I'd really like it if we got nods to other continuities' versions of the character. But looking good comes first.

Nah, more like silver Jazz(Movie) or white Skywarp(Machine Wars). Stuff like that.

Or Armada Starscream colored Starscream.

Or a Bumblebee with black stripes. I like that idea too so long as they make them different enough that they could be some one other that Bumblebee Starscream or Jazz.
