Back in my day, I called them "Mini-Spies".

@  Whirl Maximus : (28 May 2017 - 02:06 PM)

Think about the implications of it though, robots in disguise themselves infiltrated and paranoid by the recent shifts in the status quo.

@  unluckiness : (28 May 2017 - 07:47 AM)

I'm kinda glad. A couple tie-in stories aside, Secret Invasion was a mess.

@  Steevy Maximus : (28 May 2017 - 07:23 AM)

Almost makes you wonder if some of the aborted Micronauts relaunch concept didn't slip in...

@  Whirl Maximus : (28 May 2017 - 07:20 AM)

Titan Masters could quite easily have been Transformers: Secret invasion, the return of the Mini-cons/Stentarians but noooooo, it had to be whatever the pit it is.

What's the shipping price?

@  Steevy Maximus : (27 May 2017 - 05:18 PM)

Yeah, but it's cheaper than all the Hong Kong sellers running at $65+

Titan Masters is filled with false advertising, Grax doesn't make any figure invisible and Xort doesn't do anything with gravity. Maybe they'll be in the Transformer toys of tomorrow which will be actual robots with AI.

Thor was a great guy. Same as most of the Asgard. Loki was a jerk, though.

@  wonko the sane? : (26 May 2017 - 07:21 PM)

I think thor was just too smart to NOT call us stupid next to him.

Six of one, half a dozen of the other?

@  wonko the sane? : (26 May 2017 - 07:17 PM)

I always interpreted that scene to mean that asgardians weren't capable of breaking down problems in the same way as humans.

@  Pennpenn : (26 May 2017 - 06:58 AM)

I mean, SG1 was a good show on balance. One of my favourite things was Thor admitting he found humans good to keep around because they so often came up with stupid ideas that nevertheless worked out.

@  Whirl Maximus : (26 May 2017 - 05:59 AM)

Those episodes were 1969 and 2010.

@  Whirl Maximus : (26 May 2017 - 05:59 AM)

Stargate sg1 was loosely based on the movie, it thrived on continuity it was impressive how old situations and solutions would come back in unexpected ways. Continuum had it's villain use the characters own solution in two previous episodes against them.

@  Pennpenn : (26 May 2017 - 05:39 AM)

And yeah, name is based on a part of my surname. Can't remember why I picked it. Lost to memories of the primordial early 2000s.

@  Pennpenn : (26 May 2017 - 05:37 AM)

Like how Abydos in the movie is in another galaxy on the far side of the universe, but Abydos in SG1 is the closest world to Earth (and that was the only reason the gate could still get there) and even getting to other galaxies was impossible with the normal gates.

@  Pennpenn : (26 May 2017 - 05:35 AM)

I was very tired when I said that, but what I meant was a lot of stuff that is in the original Stargate movie is contradicted a lot in Stargate SG1.

@  unluckiness : (26 May 2017 - 05:29 AM)

@  Tm_Silverclaw : (26 May 2017 - 12:48 AM)

I remember a fanfic that had Swindle as Lawyer.

@  SHIELD Agent 47 : (25 May 2017 - 10:08 PM)

No, I am referring to before Beast Wars: Uprising. I swear Swindle was a lawyer in a story before "A Brush With Infamy".

@  Telly : (25 May 2017 - 09:47 PM)

i cant get the link to work for the life of me. just go to the wiki and type "a brush with infamy" in the search box and itll come up

@  Telly : (25 May 2017 - 09:40 PM)

grr. check the post above this one. stupid non working link and i cant delete shouts...

@  SHIELD Agent 47 : (25 May 2017 - 09:25 PM)

I swear I've read the story but now I forget which one it is.

@  SHIELD Agent 47 : (25 May 2017 - 09:25 PM)

When has G1 Swindle been a lawyer before?

@  Rycochet : (25 May 2017 - 07:20 PM)

All I know about PennPenn is he's so good they named him twice.

@  Tm_Silverclaw : (25 May 2017 - 07:02 PM)

Nope.. Pennpenn is actually a Prinny dood!

@  Foffy : (25 May 2017 - 06:47 PM)

I wonder if Pennpenn is related to Sean Penn.

@  Kalidor : (25 May 2017 - 04:31 PM)

Prequel creep?

@  Pennpenn : (25 May 2017 - 09:47 AM)

The prequel-creep from the original Stargate movie to SG1 is kinda funny.

You're right, that's insanely clever. icon-ironhide.gif

But it is still a slim passing resemblance to Fort Max, mostly counting on the head, sword, and a few coincidentally similar colors (mainly in Cerebros and Highbrow) to sell it. We'd probably get even less (no sword, I'd assume) in a Hasbro take, and there's a decidedly different styling at work here. I just don't see it working.

...that said, if they made it I'd probably have to have it. icon-fire.gif

Oh yeah, you are right: the resemblance is only a passing one and it hinges on the items you pointed out. And like you, while its not what I want out of a new Fort Max, I'd buy it if it hit the shelves *lol*


Have the club do it for Botcon, cal him the forgotten Maximus combiner in a return to the UT universe. Hell they could use a re-purposed Tredshot in the comic as Sideswipe post Armada.

I was thinking who would make an appropriate repaint of the Thunderwing mold.

I would like to see a Shattered Glass Sky Shadow repaint in green, based upon the 2008 Mini-Con Sky Shadow.

SG Sky Shadow would be a Pretender (even though the toy isn't) and the Mini-Con is his inner robot form although it wouldn't come with the SG Sky Shadow toy.

Deluxe ROTF Starscream as either Ramjet or Sunstorm.

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.

There was also a custom Jhiaxus from Thunderwing. I imagine such a mold would work perfectly well for Hasbro should they decide to make an actual Jhiaxus.

I made one of these myself... doesn't look like I photographed it though. Originally I was going to keep the Thunderwing head but I found someone on TFW2005's Radicons who used PCC Huffer's combiner mode head (with the antennae cut off). I liked this look (more like the G2 comic) so I followed this example.

I don't know who to be mad at... Walky for making me want those, You for reminding me that the T.j.Maxx five minutes from here has at least one more Sky Shadow, or myself for knowing my toy reprinting skills are terribly below my own standards and still loving Pretender Starscream enough that I want to try.

Nobody said it had to be realistic so,

Cybertron Optimus Prime into a GaoGaiGar homage. With a bit of remolding and a lavish deco it could totally work.
