At first, I obviously thought I was correct.  Then I thought perhaps the spelling had changed for some reason.  Copyright/trademark law is weird, ya know?  Now I just accept I goofed. XD

@  Otaku : (13 August 2020 - 03:07 PM)

See, that one directly applies to me.  Apparently, I'd been misreading and mispronouncing it wrong for over 30 years... and I still slip and do it the wrong way much of the time.

Others say Joe sat down at this pond next to these ducks but really there's just no place in this world for an old man and his ducks.

@  Nevermore : (10 August 2020 - 06:48 PM)

Even worse when I can produce those verifiable facts at a later point, and then the other person simply claims the argument was the other way round (as in, I was actually arguing their position and vice versa).

@  Nevermore : (10 August 2020 - 06:47 PM)

I can argue with people about my versus their memory of events when verifiable facts are not readily available, though, and I get really annoyed when I'm capable of presenting a precise, step-by-step summary with multiple key points that can be used for future verification, and the other person just goes "nope, wrong" without going into detail.

@  Nevermore : (10 August 2020 - 06:45 PM)

I forget things, and I misremember things. But when presented with verifiable facts, my reaction is more like "Huh, could have sworn it was like that", not "this reality is not my own".

@  Nevermore : (10 August 2020 - 06:43 PM)

I have an extremely good memory (which I have proven time and again), and even I can be mistaken.

@  NotVeryKnightly : (10 August 2020 - 06:40 PM)

Might be worth pointing out that it only became "Mandela Effect" and not just "I remembered this wrong" when a conspiracy theorist insisted it was proof of alternate timelines.

@  Otaku : (10 August 2020 - 06:29 PM)

Incorrectly remembering Nelson Mandela's fate may be uniquely American... but is it really that strange to get South African political history wrong when you're no where near South Africa?

@  Otaku : (10 August 2020 - 06:29 PM)

I always assumed the Mandela Effect was a "human thing", not an American thing.

@  wonko the sane? : (10 August 2020 - 02:03 PM)

Then there are people who outright manufacture memories for whatever reason.

@  PlutoniumBoss : (10 August 2020 - 01:13 PM)

The human brain is so flaky that it is extremely unlikely that a given person does NOT have any false memories.

@  OverDrive73 : (10 August 2020 - 01:05 PM)

Perhaps it's simple word association the movie Sinbad and then our minds apply the same memories to a man named Sinbad.

@  OverDrive73 : (10 August 2020 - 01:04 PM)

The Mandela Effect is the same as people remembering Sinbad in a movie where he played a genie... Of which he never did.

@  MidnightFox : (10 August 2020 - 09:36 AM)

People that believe Mandela Effect things would rather come up with any number of reasons as to why their version doesn't have any actual evidence(like alternate timelines collapsing into our own) than just admit they remembered something wrong

@  MidnightFox : (10 August 2020 - 09:35 AM)

Sort of. It's more that when presented with a verifiable fact, they double down because it's what they believe instead of changing their minds

@  ▲ndrusi : (10 August 2020 - 09:25 AM)

"I could have sworn that ______."

@  ▲ndrusi : (10 August 2020 - 09:25 AM)

I'm not arguing with either of those two statements, but they're not really connected. Mandela Effect is, to oversimplify, people being widely mistaken about what they think *is* a verifiable fact. Nothing to do with opinions.

@  MidnightFox : (10 August 2020 - 08:52 AM)

Pretty sure the Mandela Effect in general is an American thing. Opinion > Verifiable Facts is sadly a pretty American thing

@  Nevermore : (10 August 2020 - 04:27 AM)

Ask these people how Apartheid ended according to their recollection, and I'm sure they'll draw a blank.

@  Nevermore : (10 August 2020 - 04:25 AM)

You got two black anti-Apartheid activists who were imprisoned by the oppressive regime. One died, the other was Nelson Mandela. It's not a far stretch that Americans who don't know many details about the history of other countries would mix up the two.

@  Nevermore : (10 August 2020 - 04:24 AM)

My own theory is that these people are simply mixing up Nelson Mandela and Steve Biko, another South African anti-Apartheid activist, who did indeed die in police custody in 1977. There was an Oscar-nominated movie about his life starring Denzel Washington that came out in 1987, the same time frame these people claim remembering Mandela dying.

@  Nevermore : (10 August 2020 - 04:17 AM)

I met a few people from South Africa, and they either never heard of the phenomenon at all, or only know of it from the internet. Apparently, it's completely unknown in South Africa, and it might even be entirely limited to the United States.

@  Nevermore : (10 August 2020 - 04:16 AM)

So does anyone remember the "Mandela Effect"? I'm talking specifically about the original case where many people vividly remember Nelson Mandela dying in prison in the 1980s.

@  Rycochet : (09 August 2020 - 05:18 PM)

Much of the past decade has been the part of the comic series where less than stellar authors have driven the series into the ground and the editors are getting ready to either do a big multi issue crossover, leading to a reboot.

@  Bass X0 : (09 August 2020 - 02:28 PM)

@  Steevy Maximus : (07 August 2020 - 08:28 PM)

@Bass X0, yeah, the Joe comic got REALLY solid in the upper 20s to the Cobra Civil War. It's interesting to see how well the Joe comic has aged relative to the cartoon. Where as I feel the opposite is true of Transformers

Long list here...
  • Deathsaurus and/or Hun-Grr (whatever it's spelled)from Cybertron Scourge
  • The Fallen from Universe 2.0 Galvatron .(could work, probably. if not him, then someone...)
  • Enemy from Rumble/Frenzy (Not sure how likely this would be...)
  • Skyquake from Ultra Silverbolt (some retooling required)
  • Ultra Magnus from RTS Optimus. Also, Turbomaster Thunderclash from same mold.
  • Cybertron Hot Shot from RTS Tracks (considering that they're both sports cars with wings). Which also leaves room for a Goldbug retool.
  • Bug Bite from Legends Bumblebee
  • Ricochet from RTS Jazz. They can give him a PCC mini-con or something. Or even none, since it might cause confusion with Cyclonus' Nightstick.
  • Artfire from Universe Inferno. For the Nebulan partner, same as Ricochet above.
  • Air Warriors from Energon Starscream (the Classics mold has been used a few times too many, methinks). Also, G2 Smokescreen from same mold.
  • Sentinel Prime from Cybertron Defense Hot Shot.
  • Star Convoy from Cybertron Optimus. (okay, probably less likely than most others on the list.)
  • Dead End from Universe Sideswipe/Sunstreaker
  • Metrotitan from Cybertron Metroplex (why not?)
  • Megaplex from the Classics Tank Megatron.
  • Cy-kil from RTS Wreck-Gar.
  • Seacon Overbite from Beast Wars Transmetal II Cybershark. (Can they still actually use this mold?)
  • Quickmix from Cybertron Quickmix. They can call his Min-con whatever they want.
  • Beastbox from Cybertron Crumplezone (that mold was already ape-ish, anyway).
I think I had some more ideas, but they've either already been mentioned, or I can't remember them right now, unfortunately.

Now, how the Perceptor mold REALLY solves the latter one, I dunno, but I'm not the one asking for it.

Actually the two Classics Soundwaves are the WfC one and a TRU exclusive reissue of the original 80's toy.

That doesn't negate your response...just take out the "electronics" part and add in "just a reissue".

Generations Skullgrin as a G2 Decepticon/Liege Maximo shock trooper.

Straxus repainted as Protoform X.


Cybertron Unicron in Dark orange.


I'd like to see some generations variants too.

RTS Prime with colors closer to the laser prime toy. Maybe a darker Mettalic grey, painted in matrix, and a different shade of clear plastic.

Also, Laser Magnus and Scourge eventually. icon-op.gif icon-silverbolt.gif


I'd love to see a variant of Straxus, in a darker navy blue. But with those lined Triangle decos on the chest triangles. Like the tampos that Skullgrin has. It's much closer to his comic appearence.

War Within Sentinel Prime. I think there was a Sentinel Prime based on Cyb def Hot Shot that was planned as a convention exclusive, but they decided on Springer instead.

Still better than all those redecos of Bumblebee as Bumblebee. I want the Goldbug more than the Hot Shot, honestly. We need a heroic version of SG Goldbug.

Well, the Perceptor mold does look more like an Earth vehicle than any of the WfC guys. I'm all up for a vehicle Soundwave, honestly.

Also, about that Star Convoy one, looking at the actual Star Convoy, it looks like Armada Prime would be a better match.

And um, more ideas:
  • Cybertron Defense Hot Shot as Onslaught. (it's the back cannons)
  • PCC Searchlight as Sandstorm

But also... Movie Brawn from the ROTF line seems to work really, really well as ironfist. The pistols even look like the brain guns.

So... this.


Yes... And no... I was thinking give him the same clear plastic he had on the original toy. Just clear. Or a much lighter blue that verges on clear. But, to compensate for a lack of coloration. They could add some sparkle to the plastic (incidently I never realized the United ones clear is a very light blue but I'd like something a bit lighter anyways). Also, G2 symbols and painting the yellow details on the shoulders and giving him G2 symbols.


Don't get me wrong I know it's already done. I just think Hasbro can do one one touch better than Takara's. Although I really do like the orange of the Rts. But it's a tad too dark.

Yup, I mentioned Brawn because I couldn't remmeber Fallback's name. But... I felt it was inconsequential to mention him anyways. I mean... I was lookint at it from the perspective of a mass release repaint.

Although, I already have considered just getting a Fall back and Painting him. Everywhere except for the tan parts. Into a close enough Ironfist. So yes. He is a easy transitory custom. Which wouldn't take as much work as an entire repaint by hand.

Definitely agree with the Energon Starscream mold for Seekers. I remember reading War Within 3 and thinking the Air Warriors looked very like Energon Starscream. Plus we can retrofit Seeker drones into the Universe Trilogy.

Megaplex needs some love as well.

Might I suggest Beastbox from the Real Gear X Box controller as the bot mode was definitely reminiscent of a gorilla.

Would kill for Powertrain and Ironworks from RTS Prime with the head in the instructions.

RTS Windcharger would be cool as G1 Gobot Megatron or Blackjack. Wildrider would be nice too.

Tankor as War Within Motormaster?

Regarding Hun-gurrr from Cybertron Scourge, I'd like all the Legends Classics repaints applied to their larger counterparts, especially Blades.

Grapple as Wrecker-Hook

Kup would be a better fit for Tow-Line, I think. There's no CHUG tow truck, but a pickup's a closer match than a crane.


If you're going to drop the "tow" and just go with "truck" RTS Optimus might actually be closer than Kup. Considering it's a heavy-duty wrecker truck, not your run of the mill tow truck.
