@  Evac : (17 October 2017 - 04:39 PM)

Yeah, it's the Allspark.

@  wonko the sane? : (17 October 2017 - 04:35 PM)

Okay, so it is the allspark doing it, and not some piece of malware I need to run a system scan over, that's basically all I wanted to know.

@  Evac : (17 October 2017 - 04:34 PM)

If, say, Hillary or Bernie was president, we'd have a chance, but with the current administration... We're pretty much hugged.

I don't know why we're even bothering; there's no way in hell a GOP-controlled congress would listen to common proles like us.

Yeah, so did I.

@  wonko the sane? : (17 October 2017 - 04:19 PM)

Okay, so I just got a pop up telling me I need to call congress about the FCC killing net neutrality. Anyone else get that?

Last night, playing Mario Kart with my daughter, I misread Baby Peach as "Bobby Peach".

@  Onyxstrike : (15 October 2017 - 09:03 AM)

Yeah, I might've forgotten that the Beast is pretty much just a mindless killing machine. That's pretty much what I get for going off of the TFWiki summaries without having actually read any of it.

@  tffan01 : (15 October 2017 - 08:34 AM)

@Onyxstrike Well, to be fair, the quality of the story aside, Beast Within illustrates the fact that Dinobots are feral in nature, with what would happen if they actually lost control. That's a character flaw in a way, correct? 

@  2017 : (15 October 2017 - 08:21 AM)

Send me a PM if you need help getting to the true ending, also.

@  Strafe : (15 October 2017 - 08:15 AM)

Thinking about quirky robots occupies 30% of my brain's daily processing power. I can't remember birthdays and I never know where my phone is, but it's totally worth it.

@  2017 : (15 October 2017 - 08:03 AM)

Yay, I look forward to your dealings with quirky robots!

@  Strafe : (15 October 2017 - 08:01 AM)

Definitely, I started setting aside funds a month ago for the inevitable Black Friday digital sales in the Playstation and Xbox stores. Going to be ready this year, and that's one of the many games on my list!

@  2017 : (15 October 2017 - 07:30 AM)

Hey Strafe will you ever play Nier: Automata?

@  Onyxstrike : (15 October 2017 - 07:19 AM)

Plus, The Beast Within is overall not a very good story.

@  Onyxstrike : (15 October 2017 - 07:19 AM)

The problem is is that Victory's dreams are meant to prey on the Dinobot's character flaws. For instance, Grimlock downing every Decepticon in his path, but falling for Starscream's begging for mercy schtick, preys on his arrogence. What character flaws does The Beast Within prey on? Nothing. The entire premise of the book was to please the many fans who posed the many hypothetical "What if the Dinobots combined?" scenarios way back when, with a gratuitous death count to boot.

@  Bass X0 : (15 October 2017 - 05:51 AM)

What's wrong with wanting it to be a canon dream sequence?

@  TheMightyMol... : (14 October 2017 - 01:14 PM)

go home bass you are drunk

@  Bass X0 : (14 October 2017 - 12:15 PM)

My fanon is that The Beast Within is a follow up the Marvel UK annual story Victory. In Victory, the Dinobots are trapped within a dream world, unable to wake up - each one having dreams, ending in the Dinobots having another dream then waking up in a comic issue. My fanon is that The Beast Within is their final dream that finally pushes them into waking up.

@  TheMightyMol... : (14 October 2017 - 10:25 AM)

As long as that means The Beast Within is still non-canon, I'm fine with it.

@  Locoman : (14 October 2017 - 09:29 AM)

When everything is canon, nothing is.

@  SHIELD Agent 47 : (14 October 2017 - 09:25 AM)

The TF multiverse is an arbitrary concept. Whatever an author thinks, goes.

@  TheMightyMol... : (14 October 2017 - 05:59 AM)

Trypticon vs Deathsaurer. Make it happen!

@  tffan01 : (14 October 2017 - 05:31 AM)

Going by AVP, is Spider-Man and Zoids comic canon to the TF multiverse???

@  D Immortalis : (14 October 2017 - 12:37 AM)

stop that! we shall never speak of the "Embarassment", 'lest we be punished with more like it! =]

@  Pennpenn : (13 October 2017 - 08:23 PM)

Would the mutant heads have been on the headmasters or on the bodies (sort of like TR Galvatron's "helmet")?

@  Shrug : (13 October 2017 - 08:05 PM)

Alternate reality: Beast Wars mutant heads really took off. Nearly every Transformers since '96 has featured them. The big complaint against the line-wide gimmick in TR isn't being headmasters, it's the lack of mutant heads.

@  SHIELD Agent 47 : (13 October 2017 - 07:03 PM)

Car TF molds get made all the time; bat TF molds don't. I feel like that justifies making a new Convobat from a mold configured highly unlike the original.

@  Bass X0 : (13 October 2017 - 05:56 PM)

and yet Mindwipe is good enough to use as Convobat.

@  Shrug : (13 October 2017 - 03:19 PM)

I'm okay with that.

@  SHIELD Agent 47 : (13 October 2017 - 03:07 PM)

Takara seems to have decided that the TR Chromedome mold is unsuitable for anyone else besides Chromedome.

@  SHIELD Agent 47 : (13 October 2017 - 03:07 PM)

*shrug* No 21st century (Macromaster) Nightbeat toy seems to have satisfied a decent number of people, from what I understand.

@  Locoman : (13 October 2017 - 02:57 PM)

You could probably finagle a pretty good Nightbeat body from TR Chromedome, or even a heavy retool of Cogman.

@  SHIELD Agent 47 : (13 October 2017 - 02:44 PM)

Nightbeat in particular. Hasbro seems to love him.

@  Shrug : (13 October 2017 - 12:21 PM)

Yeah, they seem to be exploring every possible avenue of G1 now.

Pretty much... I mean, WCW is frequently on WWE Vintage Collection, WCW people and others are inducted into the WWE Hall of Fame...

Edit: Oh... and then, if you actually read the milestones, you'll find this:

QUOTE
On the final episode of WCW Monday Nitro, Sting faces his longtime rival, Ric Flair, for the last time. In a fitting bookend for both Nitro and WCW, Sting defeats Flair and the two competitors embrace after the match. Because WWE acquired WCW before this episode of Nitro, this match would mark the first and only time Sting has appeared on a WWE-produced broadcast.

Paul Heyman speaking on behalf of Brock Lesnar is a pretty good move. It'll keep Brock off TV so they can use him for PPV appearances.
Here's hoping he can keep it interesting.

It's gonna happen. Cena always has to go on last. He main evented a PPV called Elimination Chamber in a non Elimination Chamber match.

When you find yourself standing on the brink of surrender, know that many in the past faced trials such as your own, but overcame them with their great conviction.
No matter the greatness of your desperation, the failures of your efforts, or the injustice of your treatment, at least a few men have stared into the same challenges and emerged victorious from these tests.
Such men are not only a great source of inspiration, but also the very foundation upon which modern society rests.

I'm just really tired of the "Evil" Boss crap. I mean didn't we have decades of that from Vince. Now we have John "I know how to book but suck at finishes" Lauranitis giving us the "Evil" boss again. I'm sorry I don't give two jives about seeing him or hearing him. They are wasting valuable air time doing the same old thing. Brock was cool but unnecessary, a nice little obstacle for Cena to overcome (Although they should have had him Languish in mediocrity a little longer.) All WWE's good Ideas either end up running way to long or get rushed to a finish.

If you're going to be storytellers actually tell new stories or make the old stuff actually interesting. Lauranitis is a BAD Villain. Period.

Well, at the PPV we're going to find out if there's one key difference between Johnny Ace and the evil bosses before him (Vince, Bishoff, etc.) He may be able to do what they couldn't, which was back their mouths up in the ring. Vince was just a jacked old man. Johnny Ace had a legitimate career in Japan and was involved in a lot of great matches. Though having Dr. Death and Kenta Kobashi as tag team partners didn't hurt. Reports indicate he's taking this seriously and training in a ring. I bet you he has a better pro wrestling match with Cena than anyone expects.

As far as going on last, I highly doubt that. There's little chance that Daniel Bryan is beating Punk so I expect them to save that for last.

I agree, I'm sick of the "evil boss" storylines, too. That's why I (sort of) liked the Anonymous Raw GM (a bit... odd, but not quite evil, and not a lot of focus on them), and hoped Teddy Long would win at 'Mania.

It was great while Vince did it... and Bischoff did it and Russo did it and Heyman did it and Stephanie did it and Vickie did it and Shane did it and so on and so forth...

It's something I'd like to see given a rest for a good while. I miss when you only saw the bosses, like President Jack Tunney or Gorilla Monsoon, when there really needed to be intervention.

I swear, when Laurinaitis hit Cena with the mic and said he would be the opponent at "the Over Limit" PPV, I could just hear "It was me, Cena! It was me all along!" going through my head...
