@  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.

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?

@  ▲ndrusi : (23 April 2017 - 01:33 PM)

I miss the 2000s when my local stores got new toys more than once a year.

@  NotVeryKnightly : (23 April 2017 - 01:09 PM)

I mean, it might be hard to not know about something before release at all, but the degree of familiarity that you described is only attainable if you intentionally seek things out.

@  NotVeryKnightly : (23 April 2017 - 12:59 PM)

That's at least partially your own fault. The "in motion" part sounds like you even watched videos, which require conscious effort, unlike pictures that might be hard to even avoid.

@  Bass X0 : (23 April 2017 - 12:22 PM)

I miss the 80s where the first time I ever saw Transformers toys was on the toy shelves and hadn't already saw the toy from every angle and in motion several months beforehand. It made seeing a toy in the store something very special to me that I can't recapture now.

@  Evac : (23 April 2017 - 12:14 PM)

I could see Generations becoming a TRU exclusive line, now that I think about it.

@  Xellos : (23 April 2017 - 12:14 PM)

Also, Generations weathered AOE, and the TLK line seems to be short as well, so I think we'll still be seeing some room for Generations.

@  TheMightyMol... : (23 April 2017 - 12:11 PM)

Titans aren't really wide-released anyway. About the only brick-and-mortar chain to reliably carry them is Toys R Us.

@  NotVeryKnightly : (23 April 2017 - 12:08 PM)

Isn't Trypticon still a long way from now?

@  Evac : (23 April 2017 - 11:57 AM)

They wouldn't let a big-ticket item like that get cancelled.

@  Evac : (23 April 2017 - 11:57 AM)

Counter argument: They still haven't released Trypticon.

@  unluckiness : (23 April 2017 - 09:25 AM)

But yeah, not having any big-name media means it's the most likely, although the premiere series packaging might convince retailers to dedicate more shelf space, kinda like SW Black.

@  unluckiness : (23 April 2017 - 09:24 AM)

I'd expect Generations to be the sacrificial lamb since they can't possibly stock RID any less.

@  RichardT1977 : (23 April 2017 - 09:06 AM)

I'm thinking the subline that doesn't have a movie or TV show will be the one on the cutting board.

@  RichardT1977 : (23 April 2017 - 09:05 AM)

Back to TF toys: the question is whether or not retailers will be willing to commit the peg/shelf space for three sublines. And which one will be sidelined if space is at a premium.

@  unluckiness : (23 April 2017 - 06:28 AM)

No idea.

I know the are all "official," but which series, Generation 2, Classics, or Regeneration One is the continuation of the G1 comics?

Regeneration One is staking a claim by having the issues numbered in sequence, starting with #80.5 and going to #100.

Generation 2 deliberately sets itself apart. It is a different franchise. It deliberately sets a new style and tone. Criminy, the first issue boldly declares "this is not your father's Autobot" on the cover, so I think it is undermines its own claim to be the definitive continuation. On the other hand, it is in indirect continuity through G.I. Joe. Or at least the Joe issues starring Transformers are.

I don't know enough about Classics fiction to comment.

G2

RG1






































"Classicsverse".


In roughly that order icon-arcee.gif

[And "G2" is therefore your answer, for the same reason Draven gave. RG1 only gets *any* sort of a look in because the same guys are working on it - but since Furman also wrote G2, even that's not any sort of trump card. The Clubverse pretending Marvel UK doesn't exist, OTOH, is a COUNTER-trump card.]

I'm surprised people are now favoring G2 over Regeneration One after all the effort to get Regeneration One made.

If this topic were made after Regeneration One #100 has been released, we'll probably see a change in opinion.

To me, "definitive" doesn't mean 'first' but 'best'. Even though G2 came first, I doubt it will be able hold up against Regeneration One in quality.

Time will tell on this, of course, but this is largely my opinion, as well. I can't vote for Regeneration One yet, as I don't know if it will be any good (I have high hopes, of course). Classics was an enjoyable romp, but frankly there just isn't that much there for me to support it. (6 pages every two months just isn't very much, sorry) That pretty much leaves G2.

Perhaps it would be different if RG1 wasn't going to stupidly ignore the last twelve issues of the Marvel canon for no real reason.

Yes, I was wanting Regeneration One to take place after G2 #12, between G1 #80 and G2 #1 or during G2 (same way the U.K. comics happened during the U.S. comics).

But I kept being told that G2 was bad, that nobody should care about it and that Regeneration One would be limited if it incorporated G2 because of all the pointless deaths.

All things I disagreed with. G2 is part of the Marvel continuity too and Furman could still write a good story while acknowledging G2. But it became an alternate timeline from the end of #80. Classicsverse already ignored G2. If the hype for Regeneration One is real and Furman can pull off the stories he has been talking about and hinting at, its going to be great.

Just because you can't win doesn't mean you stop working.

But there ARE reasons. You may disagree with them, but the widespread destruction on Earth, the loss of several characters, and the whole now-acknowleged existence of the Cybertronian Empire are all game-changers that Simon Furman thought it best to turn back the clock on.

They're pretty significant reasons, you're desire to include them in the new story notwithstanding.

Well gee, maybe he could have tried to TELL a story with a significantly changed game by USING those new elements, instead of wiping them out! I mean, are you seriously telling me that the idea of the Autobots and Decepticons at peace, working with humanity to rebuild, with the thread of a... third faction... hanging over their heads...
