There are some more immediate doomsday scenarios on a more local level, like the sun expanding and consuming us all.

@  Evac : (25 April 2017 - 08:25 PM)

In a few trillion years, there's going to be a Big Rip, a heat death, a Big Crunch or a Big Bounce, so- wait, you're talking about Stargate.

@  Xellos : (25 April 2017 - 08:20 PM)

I just wish Universe had a conclusive ending...

@  wonko the sane? : (25 April 2017 - 07:53 PM)

They had to try something new, and it didn't work.

@  Echowarrior : (25 April 2017 - 07:31 PM)

SG-1 was a good series. Atlantis too. Universe...dear god was that ever a misfire.

@  Xellos : (25 April 2017 - 02:56 PM)

Started watching SG-1 right before season 9. The Stargate were the last live action series that could hold my attention week to week.

@  Rycochet : (25 April 2017 - 02:52 PM)

Sg1 really lost it's appeal once they got too far into the ancients/ascended plotlines.

@  Gizmoboy : (25 April 2017 - 02:48 PM)

I enjoyed the movie. Never got into the TV Series.

@  BlackMax : (25 April 2017 - 02:19 PM)

About twenty since I cared. :D :D :D

@  Whirl Maximus : (25 April 2017 - 01:50 PM)

ten years since Stargate SG1 ended.

@  WorkbenchManiac : (25 April 2017 - 11:05 AM)

it's all about that sweet, savory monosodium glutamate!

@  TheMightyMol... : (25 April 2017 - 10:58 AM)

If you're eating cheap Chinese, nutritional value is probably not the first thing on your mind.

@  Paladin : (25 April 2017 - 10:56 AM)

depends on where you get them from, but sometimes the paper has more nutritional value.

@  Robowang : (25 April 2017 - 10:21 AM)

I have actually eaten the cookie without opening it before. I didn't realize it until my wife asked what my fortune was.

@  BlackMax : (25 April 2017 - 09:18 AM)

It's like the fortune cookies. After getting so many over the years I just barely notice them.

@  Pennpenn : (25 April 2017 - 09:17 AM)

Sorry, yeah, I also dislike any policy which involves including putting Optimus Prime in teriyaki chicken.

@  unluckiness : (25 April 2017 - 09:13 AM)

That sounds like an unfair assessment of the teriyaki chicken.

@  Pennpenn : (25 April 2017 - 09:10 AM)

Yeah but there's no way they weren't designing it with the Optimus Maximus or whatever in mind. That said I could just be annoyed because I dislike the "every line must have at least one Optimus Prime in there somewhere" policy that Hasbro seems to have.

@  WorkbenchManiac : (25 April 2017 - 08:29 AM)

that sounds both worrying and delicious

@  BlackMax : (25 April 2017 - 08:03 AM)

I am seriously feeling hungry occasionally because Quake's deep-red paint job looks JUST like the teryaki chicken at my favorite Chinese eatery.

@  unluckiness : (25 April 2017 - 06:41 AM)

Hard to say. The bot mode's okay and the the combiner form is the awful on. Considering that Prime didn't have a combiner form back then and could have looked like anything, seems that there were other factors at play.

@  Pennpenn : (25 April 2017 - 02:48 AM)

I'd say a lot of CW Menasor's problems were caused by the fact he had to share a mold with Optimus Prime.

@  unluckiness : (24 April 2017 - 09:27 PM)

giggity

@  BlackMax : (24 April 2017 - 08:44 PM)

TR Astrotrain can be remarkably straight.

@  Dracula : (24 April 2017 - 04:10 PM)

bot can not be straight

@  TheMightyMol... : (24 April 2017 - 01:49 PM)

Hey man, don't dongshame.

@  Benbot : (24 April 2017 - 12:32 PM)

#crotchproblems

@  Robowang : (24 April 2017 - 11:53 AM)

Menasor's problem is that his crotch is waaaaaaaaaaaaaay too high. I couldn't care less about those other issues. If your dong is a chestburster, something ain't right.

@  BlackMax : (24 April 2017 - 11:40 AM)

Seems like all the combiners have an issue like that, the legs can never be completely straight in combined mode, the finished big bot is always looming eerily or hip-thrusting.

@  SHIELD Agent 47 : (24 April 2017 - 11:39 AM)

I doubt having an integrated trailer would have swayed me into buying CW Motormaster. But what definitely put me off were Internet reports of awful hip ratcheting.

@  BlackMax : (24 April 2017 - 11:36 AM)

I might also mention that ~not~ being a big truck has worked for the Internet pretty well.

@  unluckiness : (24 April 2017 - 11:32 AM)

I moaned about Motormaster because his combiner mode was awful

@  Rycochet : (24 April 2017 - 11:31 AM)

People moaned about the choices made during Combiner wars.that meant characters like Motormaster/Menasor weren't G1G1G1.

@  BlackMax : (24 April 2017 - 11:23 AM)

He could always be a very small red truck.

@  TheMightyMol... : (24 April 2017 - 10:59 AM)

But how will you know it's Optimus Prime if he's not a big red truck?

@  Broadside : (24 April 2017 - 10:20 AM)

Personally, I'm not a fan of the extreme-accuracy trend. The character choices are kind of sure-fine-whatever, but outside of stuff like Alpha Trion that's a huge divergence from the source material, there doesn't feel like there's much imagination in the designs any more.

@  Pennpenn : (24 April 2017 - 05:03 AM)

Because you might as well start as you mean to go on?

@  Nevermore : (24 April 2017 - 04:16 AM)

It does. Preview image is Legion's penis tongue.

@  SHIELD Agent 47 : (24 April 2017 - 04:15 AM)

Hold it. Please tell me Kiss Players doesn't have a GoBox.

@  Autobot Bubbs : (24 April 2017 - 03:10 AM)

That is epically messed up

@  Autobot Bubbs : (24 April 2017 - 03:10 AM)

GURD.... youtube just auto-played a new trailer for the Alien flick.... featuring John Denver's 'country roads' as BG music....

@  Noideaforaname : (24 April 2017 - 12:37 AM)

The Generations lineup should be decided by hitting Random Page on the wiki. "Next one is... Crankstart." 'Alright, I love the Scavengers!' "No, no, CrankSTART. The repaint of a repaint of a repaint of a Scout version of a Deluxe based on a background vehicle from the Live Action film." 'Oh'

@  RichardT1977 : (23 April 2017 - 11:31 PM)

After we get a couple of Pretenders. And a Titans Return Star Saber (not a difficult retool from Galvatron).

@  BlackMax : (23 April 2017 - 10:21 PM)

I really do like all the attention to the 80s toys, being from that era myself. However, I would be really happy if (let's say post Trypticon) the Generations line turns to the 2001 RiD line, Beast Wars stuff, and moves forwarda bit.

@  SHIELD Agent 47 : (23 April 2017 - 08:19 PM)

I'm curious because I'm not an 80s kid nor have I ever held an actual 80s toy in my hands, but I'm pretty sure a mathematically significant portion of 80s kids here do have a like for cartoon accuracy.

@  SHIELD Agent 47 : (23 April 2017 - 08:15 PM)

How much of this community favors versus not favors the current Hasbro design team's general trend of accuracy to classic 1980s toys and lack of attention to any other era of Transformers?

@  Fruitloop Mu... : (23 April 2017 - 07:36 PM)

Telly, ah, got it.

@  Evac : (23 April 2017 - 06:41 PM)

"You can do magic things!" "It's called evil, kid."

@  Foffy : (23 April 2017 - 06:27 PM)

Potatoes don't have ears. That's corn.

working title: "absurd sentai loser patrol"


Imagine a sentai team comprised of three best friends who, by all appearances, are total slackers.

The kind of slacker who seems to live on pizza, anime, and old role-playing games.

Get dressed up? Not unless they're going to church or somehow seemingly land a sales job.

Get out of the house? Only if they have to.

Get a life? Too busy whipping out the Jane's guides in order to foment house rules for Axis & Allies.

Good guys. Bad guys. Everyone takes one look at them and dismisses them outright as not worth the time.


...which is what they thrive on.

You see, they aren't slacking because they're lazy.

They slack because they can afford to.

Patrol Safety Orange has an advanced degree in business; when he's not working as a consultant, he's contributing to textbooks and scholarly works. Oh, and he's also a knife nut.

Patrol Mint Green is a B-list celebrity chef who fought the infamous "Pinto Bean Battle" on an episode of Titanium Chef. Which was nothing compared to the fact that he put himself through cooking school by working for the Border Patrol.

Patrol Sandstone is a professional athlete (he specializes in marathons but does other sports as well). He's also a street brawler of some renown among the underworld, who tend to shy away from him lest they get hammered.

The three deliberately cultivate an image of being lazy and pathetic in their real lives in order to throw everyone off concerning their real capabilities; they're all well known in their respective worlds, but those worlds are so comparatively obscure that even the people in their subdivision don't recognize them.

So whenever the government needs an alien invasion thwarted, a drug kingpin overthrown, or a hostage rescued, our three heroes pry themselves up off of the couch long enough to show the world just how awesome they really are.

Thoughts?

Thanks.

Sounds like a good comedy setup. A bit like giving some of The Big Bang Theorys characters superpowers and running with it. Or maybe Two Pints of Lager and a Packet of Crisps witih superpowers, but with your idea of them being so smart they aim to be stupid as a defence mechanism. It certainly turns the 'secret identity' cliche on its head.

I like the Safety Orange and Mint Green names.

Also, what do you think would happen if any of the 'cool' heroes, if they're are others in this idea, found out who these guys are. Wonder how they'd take it.

As a joke, I was thinking of also having is to that there's a team of "proper" heroes afoot complete with a female Patrol Red as the leader.

They're all total professionals at what they do, and have all the gadgets & gear.

Thing is, Patrol Red isn't in on the joke.

The rest of her team has figured out that they're the smokescreen for the other three: they go in and handle missions that are too risky or too dangerous for normal civil servants, but not so complicated as to need the trio showing up. As a result, they're the ones the bad guys expect to deal with each time.

Patrol Red, meanwhile, actually knows the trio in real life but is so absolutely convinced of their supposed shortcomings that she won't even give them the time of day. She regards herself as being married to her job, and sees neither of the three as being worthy of her attention.

Mecha ideas:


Patrol Safety Orange - Hurricane Blade

Vehicle mode: Commanche Scout helicopter with twin winch systems on the sides and twin machine guns under the nose

Combat mode: Winch systems open up to reveal hidden rocket launchers

Mecha mode: Tail becomes legs, nose becomes arms, machine guns mount to shoulders, blades reveal from under arms, winch systems rotate into place.

Patrol Mint Green - Thunder Truck

Vehicle mode: hot-rodded El Camino knock-off with a massive engine in the bed, equally massive exhaust pipes, and a spoiler.

Combat mode: suspension elevates, revealing grappling hook launchers. gatling gun emerges from the front grille.

Mecha mode: engine & bed section becomes legs. hood opens up to reveal gatling gun and punching dagger. Hood and sides become arms.

Patrol Sandstone - Sandstorm Jeep

Vehicle mode: Willy's Jeep redone as a hovercraft, complete with roof and oversized cargo pods in rear.

Combat mode: cargo pods open up to reveal twin 90mm beam cannons

Mecha mode: cargo pods separate, revealing massive metallic boxing gloves. Similar transform to Thunder Truck, with cannons mounting to the back of the robot and gloves going over fists.
