In my Marvel comic canon the second wave of special teams were handpicked active robots whose experience would theoretically make more stable combiners, the Combaticons came from Cybertron, the Protectobots were imprinted from crystals explaining both Onslauhghts ancestry and First Aid's experience.

@  Cyoti : (18 June 2021 - 03:32 PM)

Even with B5, it didn't follow its original 5-year plan. Summaries from the supplementary materials for the scriptbooks demonstrates that was originally planned was very different from the actual product. Sinclair's actor's departure seemingly changed the show to the point that the stuff with the Vorlons/Shadows, the Minbari and the ending were all changed. Mapping out a show years in advance is difficult because of changing bts stuff like writers/actors leaving the show or suddenly having to retool because of ratings/execs. No plan survives intact especially in a chaotic environment of television production.

@  Rycochet : (18 June 2021 - 11:27 AM)

To be like Babylon 5, you need to cram a 2 season story arc into one because you fear being cancelled, then get further seasons you have no more material for. You also need a spinoff which the network heads don't want and do everything in their power to kill it while it's on air.

@  wonko the sane? : (18 June 2021 - 10:33 AM)

The required effort is probably why we don't have babylon 6; TNG.

@  Dekafox : (18 June 2021 - 10:23 AM)

Everyone wants to be like Babylon 5 but no one wants to put in the effort

@  Nevermore : (18 June 2021 - 09:36 AM)

And then, after five years of hosting their own official podcast where they would answer fan questions and always encouraged their audience to pay attention to the mysteries, after the show had ended, they claimed the show was never really about the mysteries, it was all about the characters.

@  Nevermore : (18 June 2021 - 09:34 AM)

What really bugs me with "Lost" is that the producers had willfully negotiated a set end date with the network halfway through season 3 (the show ended with season 6, as planned) specifically so they could plan out the plot for the remainder of the show. Then... the plot wasn't resolved properly.

@  tigerhawk : (18 June 2021 - 04:17 AM)

By then I had lost interest in arc TV shows, I followed a few and got the impression they were just making them up as they went along. Seemed to be a trend starting with new Galactica and Lost though in actuality began with The X Files and has become a trope called 'The Chris Carter Effect'.

@  Nevermore : (18 June 2021 - 02:12 AM)

I think it was season 3 part 1 specifically, since they had two separate plot "arcs" for season 3.

@  Nevermore : (18 June 2021 - 02:11 AM)

They threw everything in there, with no clear story structure, no clear stakes, and characters flip-flopping wherever the episode's writer needed them to go for their half-baked plot.

@  Nevermore : (18 June 2021 - 02:10 AM)

Season 3 was the worst, with a terrible meandering random events plot.

@  tigerhawk : (17 June 2021 - 11:59 PM)

'save the cheerleader' then in season 3 he tears her skull open, scans her power and she simply heals. They didn't think any of it through.

@  Shockwave 75 : (17 June 2021 - 07:04 PM)

Well, you know Hollywood; if something's popular, run it into the ground!

@  Cybersnark : (17 June 2021 - 04:40 PM)

And then there was the Writers' Strike, which isn't the show's fault.

@  Cybersnark : (17 June 2021 - 04:40 PM)

Yeah, Sylar should've been, if not killed off, at least left to rest.

@  Nevermore : (17 June 2021 - 03:43 PM)

It never truly recovered from that.

@  Nevermore : (17 June 2021 - 03:43 PM)

Season 1 was good until the finale.

Was sent this image through an inside source at Target.





They've been pretty happy with the response to their exclusive DOTM exclusives, and Hasbro sent them this packaging mock up for consideration as an exclusive next Spring, before Prime starts.

The trading card may not stay, but the Hasbro logo in place of the Takara Tomy logo is prominent.

So aside from the abs then is this basically Buster Prime with the added stuff or does he still have the hooks?

Buster Prime would entail the Premium/Masterpiece level paint deco, this looks more like Hasbro ROTF Leader Prime with some new unpainted parts to add on. Without an interesting deco difference, this is probably a pass.

It is a slight remold of the rotf buster mold (keeping the buster gun from the truck tanks) . Hes got new arms (the swords are gone and he has a clip point for the new guns to go into and i thinmk a mechtech port), and the obvious new dotm abs.

Hmm, okay. I'm sure you never miss anything. icon-arcee.gif

If I could buy just the accessories and they'd fit on my Japanese Buster Prime I'd probably be interested, but this? Probably not worth it.

Hasbro has said that DotM will continue through Spring. So that fact alone would not stand out to me as proof of BS.

The obvious photo manipulation that smears out the Japanese lettering next to the Hasbro logo though...

So, is this the Buster Prime? I know we don't get all the fancy paint apps, but will he have the gas tank guns along with all those nifty new accessories?
Or is it just the same figure as the "battle hooks" HFTD leader Prime I just bought a few months ago?

I like the Hasbro logo actually goes above the bit of cardboard it's supposedly printed on too.

Obvious 'shop is obvious.
