@  Nevermore : (27 April 2017 - 04:16 AM)

Well, the users over on TFW in return accuse the Allspark of being an elitist clique that ostracizes everyone who doesn't act like they do (i.e. civil), whereas TFW is more welcoming to everyone regardless of their views.

@  Pennpenn : (27 April 2017 - 03:23 AM)

Hard G. I don't give a solitary shit what the creators call it, the first word in the acronym is "Graphical". I have no idea why they'd think any sane human could, would, or should pronounce it any other way.

@  SHIELD Agent 47 : (27 April 2017 - 03:13 AM)

I acknowledge what the creators say, but whether I remember to use their pronunciation or not is hit or miss. Heck, I think I usually think of it in my head as "gee-i-ef", in parallel to "JPG" and "PNG".

@  lastmaximal : (26 April 2017 - 10:13 PM)

Not everyone likes everything, and people aren't blind to shortfalls or annoyances resulting from constraints of how the brand is handled. We make many a joke out of these things. But it's a rare thing when entitlement replaces logic on here, where that seems to be poster raison d'etre everywhere else.

@  lastmaximal : (26 April 2017 - 10:11 PM)

It's utterly weird how these here boards seem so impervious an oasis when it comes to that depth of idiocy. Worshipping 3p and demanding the official companies "step it up" and stop being so lazy? Insisting the movies be done THEIR way, crapping on every single thing revealed about the films or toyline, then whining that they can't find (insert hot movie to here) or the official release of a movie figure doesn't capture the look in the film they hated? Etc

@  lastmaximal : (26 April 2017 - 10:09 PM)

It's not even a "brand pissing contest" or "board loyalty" thing, not least due to the fact that those don't really even happen here all that much. I'm just happy to be with levelheaded people who've outgrown the usual fan dumb tropes. You can have a civilized conversation here and people don't shit on things only to hide behind "but but but to each their own right?" when their myopic BS is challenged.

@  lastmaximal : (26 April 2017 - 10:07 PM)

With each time nonsense like this flares up on tfw or on local discussion venues (and it does quite a bit) I'm just reminded of why I've essentially been allspark bound for the last... Fifteen or so years.

@  Noideaforaname : (26 April 2017 - 10:07 PM)

On the plus side, tho, TFW has "appreciation threads" for practically everything, even stuff like Kre-O and PCC. And their toy database is quite handy.

@  Noideaforaname : (26 April 2017 - 10:03 PM)

I've been happily posting on TFW for years. Then, after being *here* for a few months, I look back and wonder how the hell I even bothered with it. I mean, my ignore list had hundreds of people on it. Literally HUNDREDS of ignored people. I even showed off said gargantuan list once (with a small thumbnail that you couldn't read any of the names on, mind you). That... that really should have been a warning sign, I suppose...

One of the reveal the shield news threads at TFW has movie fans and G1 fans arguing over who has it worse

@  WorkbenchManiac : (26 April 2017 - 06:49 PM)

You got me awfully curious. What thread ware we talking about?

@  Diecast : (26 April 2017 - 02:17 PM)

@  Diecast : (26 April 2017 - 02:04 PM)

@  ▲ndrusi : (26 April 2017 - 11:08 AM)

To clarify on point 1 since I was typing early in the morning again, "you must hate exactly what I hate" and "you msut like exactly what I like" aren't actually the same statement but they're the same thought process which is "my opinions are objective facts." If you see someone espousing one, they're probably thinking the other, too.

@  lastmaximal : (26 April 2017 - 10:57 AM)

... what.

@  Bass X0 : (26 April 2017 - 10:15 AM)

Andrusi, I imagine to some people online, there isn't that much of a world of difference, at least going by the venom they post; although not at RiD specifically.

@  unluckiness : (26 April 2017 - 08:55 AM)

The scale of liking and hating is an interval one so you can not like something but not hate it. Pretty sure there's apathy and dislike in between there at least.

@  wonko the sane? : (26 April 2017 - 08:07 AM)

And humans are perfectly capable of hating things in unison while being divided on liking.

@  ▲ndrusi : (26 April 2017 - 07:34 AM)

On the other hand, there's a world of difference between "I hate RID" and "I hate Nazis."

@  ▲ndrusi : (26 April 2017 - 07:27 AM)

On one hand, "hating what I hate" IS "liking what I like." One of those cultures can't be worse than the other because they're literally the same culture.

@  ▲ndrusi : (26 April 2017 - 07:26 AM)

I think that comparison is both an oversimplification AND a meaningless distinction.

@  wonko the sane? : (26 April 2017 - 07:16 AM)

That's the internet effect. Distance and anonimity make for easy and consequence-less extremism.

@  Bass X0 : (26 April 2017 - 06:58 AM)

@  LBD "Nyt... : (26 April 2017 - 05:57 AM)

For now, I'd just find some small comfort in knowing those who have passed actually are in some sort of better place.

@  LBD "Nyt... : (26 April 2017 - 05:56 AM)

I'd find comfort in knowing that one way or another, that suffering would eventually end and a new, potentially happier beginning awaits.

@  MEDdMI : (26 April 2017 - 05:54 AM)

@LBD At the same time, I can't imagine wanting to stay in even a happy afterlife when fleshies are still suffering.

@  2017 : (26 April 2017 - 05:49 AM)

Celebrating and welcoming death just gives them more ideological hoops to justify killing others. So yeah, no thanks.

@  LBD "Nyt... : (26 April 2017 - 05:48 AM)

The idea of death doesn't bother me so much as no longer existing.

Had to be asked. OK More than 40 Generations figures in 2013 is a huge number when you come down to it. Literally huge. So go at it. Can you name your top 40 existing characters (no particular order) you'd like to see reborn next year?

1) Grimlock
2) Slug
3) Swoop
4) Snarl
5) Sludge
6) Blitzwing
7) Trailbreaker
8) Gears
9) Hoist
10) Skids
11)Kickback
12) Bombshell
13) Shrapnel
14) Silverbolt
15) Sky Dive
16) Air Raid
17) Slingshot
18) Fireflight
19) G1 Arcee
20) Fortress Maximus
21) Chromedome
22) Scrounge (please?)
23) Macabre
24) Impactor
25) Grotusque
26) Hun-Grr
27) Blot
28) Sinnertwin
29) Rippersnapper
30) Cutthroat
31) Skorponok
32) Carnivac
33) Jhiaxus
34) Elita 1
35) Deathsaurus
36) Devcon
37) G1 Top Spin
38) G1 Twin Twist
39) Chop Shop
40) Venom


-ZacWilliam, god 40 is a hard list to fill, and I'm sure I left off a ton of good choices (especially big guys as i'd love Omega Supreme but not smaller than Leader)and yeah, I'm a G1 fanboy, no appologies there. What's your dream list look like?

It would be completely unreasonable to expect forty new mold Deluxes. I seriously expect many of the forty if that number is accurate to be Cyberverse toys. And repaints from previous Generations toys plus repaints from other new molds yet to be announced.

Forty would be easy to fill but then I'd list some obscure characters few others care for.

02) Trailbreaker
03) Soundwave
04) Laserbeak/Buzzsaw
05) Huffer
06) Gears
07) Rumble/Frenzy

Of course I'd love new Dinobots as well, but I put completing the 1984 cast + Fort ahead of that.

I know! Let's list our 40 favorite transformers! Brilliant! :/

The big question is what will they repaint/remold. I'd love a Jackpot from Prowl, a Ricochet from Jazz, and a REAL Roadrage/Swerve from Tracks. Purplestuff, Slicer, movie-esque Barricade from Prowl, and a half dozen other Classics/Universe/Generations autobot repaints. Including a junkion 2 pack w/ a more g1 inspired Wreckgar paintscheme. Sweeps.

If you want to know what my priority deluxe Generations wishlist is... I guess:
Blitzwing
Swoop
Slug/Slag
Snarl
(voyager) Sludge
(voyager) Grimlock
Gnaw/Sharkticons

clearly listing 40 is just obscene.

We know (ok, reasonably expect) the head remolds to be part of that so...

1) Kup remold (Swerve?)
2) Prime remold (Nemesis?)
3) Scourge remold (Ratbat?)
4) Jazz remold (uhhh?)
5) Perceptor remold (Reflector)
6) Lugnut (uhhh?)

Plus I figure a lot more are redecos/remolds of earlier molds. I'd be shocked if we even get 20+ new Generations molds in 2013.

Really anything I put down just sounds way too fanboy-y/delusional.
If I could walk into a store and buy a voyager Ultra Magnus and at least one, but preferably more, of The 13 I will be incredibly happy.
I'd want Ultra Magnus to be new and Aligned-y looking, and the The 13 should be one that doesn't have a toy already.


Also, I don't really see them putting out 40 deluxes in a year. At least not all in one line.
There has to be another size class.

Seriously. Nightbeat is right behind "The rest of the 84 cast" and "all the Dinobots"on my top wish list.

And pre-planed Minerva repaint/remold please.

Posted 11 February 2012 - 07:16 PM

1. Shockwave (A helicopter, a less flimsy-looking HISS Tank or hoverjet like DOTM Laserbeak would be nice)
2. Soundwave (A stealth drone or a tricked-out van would work)
3. Starscream (An F-22, as long as he's less boring than the Classics Seeker mold)
4. Red Alert (UT)
5. Starscream (Armada)
6. Megatron (Tank, can be colored like G2 or Classics)
7. Scourge (Nemesis Prime made from RTS Prime)
8. Swindle (Can be a new mold or a Hound retool)
9. Lockdown (The ROTF mold is good, but I'd like one with less panels)
10. Blitzwing
11. Jetfire (Armada)
12. Optimus Prime (Can be a new Deluxe firetruck, maybe?]
13. Ironhide (either a Humvee or a Movie-inspired pickup truck)
14. Flatline (A hearse, natch; this guy NEEDS a toy. And more appearances in fiction. A Classics-ization, but due to him modifying his own body, he's very lanky-looking and freaky.)
15. Nightbeat (new mold)
16. Megatron (Armada MOOSE)
17. Megatron (BW)
18. Ratchet (A new separate mold from Ironhide)
19. Blaster (Can be a Soundwave retool if Soundwave's a van)
20. Arcee (Preferably a bike, basically a Classics-ization of Prime Arcee)
21. Cosmos (Has to be a UFO, and has to be chubby.)
22. Barricade (Classics-ization of Movie Barricade)
23. Prowl (Retool of Barricade)
24. Sky-Byte (New mold for all the people who missed out on Botcon Sky-Byte; I didn't, but it'd be nice for there to be more Sky-Bytes for everyone)
25. Waspinator (Every joint is able to be detached and re-attached - just like in the show!)
26. Slipstream (Classics - turns into a Berkut)
27. Thundercracker (Transforms into a Cobra Rattler)
28. Skywarp (Transforms into an F-117 and comes with a cardboard stand that's essentially a set of stairs for him to push people down icon-fire.gif)
29. Springer
30. Optimus Primal
31. Sentinel Prime (Classics-ization of the DOTM version)
32. Bulkhead (Classics take on Animated Bulkhead)
33. Cannonball (New mold Amphibious Assault vehicle, or maybe a Bulkhead retool - like a bigger Breacher)
34. Whirl (A V-22)
35. Roadbuster (Basically a Warthog from Halo)
36. Rhinox
37. Orion Pax (A pick-up truck based on Alternators Optimus - has the IDW Pre-Prime Optimus head)
38. Galvatron (New mold that turns into a futuristic tank)
39. Jackpot (Nightbeat Retool)
40. Blackarachnia (A show-accurate representation of her original BW form)

Transformers is a brand that really has something for everyone. We are a darn lucky fandom.

Curious as to whether the repaint/remould would be Minerva or Siren (for the latter, packaged in car mode, it'd be a blue car and a silver car). Never likely to get a Siren otherwise, after all, and while Hasbro are slightly less gun-shy than they once were on the "OH NOES GIRLS!1" front, I'm not entirely sure they'd go out of their way to do one if there was an alternative.*

*No, Nightbeat and Siren weren't originally mouldmates, but they ARE similar cars associated with one another, and cases like Tracks/Wheeljack, Drift/Blurr & Bumblebee/Cliffjumper/Hot Shot show they're not shy about making a repaint/remould out of a character who originally wasn't one.
