No decoration could improve the wall more than Knockout himself

@  TheMightyMol... : (25 September 2020 - 05:04 PM)

The wall could use some decorating, though. Maybe a nice shelf or a portrait.

@  -LittleAutob... : (25 September 2020 - 04:32 PM)

I'm laughing so hard XDDD

@  ▲ndrusi : (25 September 2020 - 02:31 PM)

He doesn't even mind this time. You know what? It's comfortable here.

@  -LittleAutob... : (25 September 2020 - 02:23 PM)

AND THEN KNOCKOUT WAS IN THE WALL AGAIN XDDD

@  Bass X0 : (25 September 2020 - 01:11 PM)

@  TheMightyMol... : (24 September 2020 - 01:00 PM)

And then Knockout was in the wall again.

@  Sabrblade : (24 September 2020 - 12:53 PM)

Knockout: "Ooh, sorry, Lord Megatron. The correct word was... 'Decepticon'."

@  -LittleAutob... : (24 September 2020 - 11:15 AM)

Knockout: *while doing a crossword puzzle* Lord Megatron, whats a ten letter word for disappointment? | Megatron: ...... Starscream.

@  Maximus Ambus : (23 September 2020 - 01:20 PM)

@Bass X0 Shockwave did it.

@  TheMightyMol... : (23 September 2020 - 11:56 AM)

At least it's not Suntwerker.

@  wonko the sane? : (23 September 2020 - 11:19 AM)

@  TheMightyMol... : (21 September 2020 - 06:01 PM)

Hey, new to the boards

@  RichardT1977 : (20 September 2020 - 02:29 PM)

I had an idea for a Spiral Zone/Go-Busters crossover fanfic...

@  wonko the sane? : (19 September 2020 - 06:35 PM)

I loved what was there, and think it's pretty ripe for "renegades" style reboot.

@  Rycochet : (19 September 2020 - 03:13 PM)

It's a shame as I loved Spiral Zone, and the design from the Japanese Toyline of the same name are fantastic, I adore the monowheel motorbike.

@  Rycochet : (19 September 2020 - 03:12 PM)

Hasbro doesn't seem to have any interest in doing anything with the TV show, haven't greenlit any attempt to rerelease it, and there have been approaches, so I think it may be aother one of Tonka's legal carcrashes where everyone involved owns a piece and it's not really worth anyone sticking their neck out to claim ownership.

@  Steevy Maximus : (19 September 2020 - 01:47 PM)

I feel that homages and references would be a fun way to expand the GI Joe brand, and give a little love to lines that are unlikely to be acknowledged beyond such capacity.

@  Steevy Maximus : (19 September 2020 - 01:47 PM)

I was under the impression that Bandai was more the character design aspects, not story or characters.

@  Rycochet : (19 September 2020 - 12:55 PM)

Also isn't it in rights limbo, given how it's loosely based on concepts from a BanDai series much like GoBots?

@  Rycochet : (19 September 2020 - 12:52 PM)

We don't need a Spiral Zone reboot, in a decade or so we'll be living it.

@  wonko the sane? : (19 September 2020 - 12:49 PM)

Yeah, but it would fundamentally change the base premise of both gijoe and spiral zone. It's either not the world spanning threat it was, or the zone riders are backed up by a competent force. Either way, you compromise the context of both.

@  Steevy Maximus : (19 September 2020 - 12:19 PM)

Akin to what was done with Matt Tracker in 2008.

@  Steevy Maximus : (19 September 2020 - 12:18 PM)

Again, not a PURE transplant, but an integration of ideas and concepts into the world of GI Joe.

@  Steevy Maximus : (19 September 2020 - 12:18 PM)

@Wonko The Cobra Overlord, with help from Dr. Mindbender and Cesspool, develops machines capable of generating a mind-controlling fog. GI Joe stalwarts Flint, Airtight, Lifeline, and Psyche-Out are joined by Colonal Courage to infiltrate these zones and disable the machines. Figures would sport hostile environment suits (Eco warriors cross with Spiral Zone) and make new versions of the mono-wheel vehicles.

@  Maximus Ambus : (19 September 2020 - 09:39 AM)

Hasbroverse.2 with bought properties: Bravestarr, Ulysses 31, Galaxy Rangers, Shadow Raiders, Manta Force, Jayce and the Wheeled Warriors, Mighty Orbots, Jem and Bigfoot and the Muscle Machines. Seamless.

@  wonko the sane? : (19 September 2020 - 08:32 AM)

While acknoledging spiral zone would be pretty boss, I doubt they could actively integrate it into anything else: given the scale of the villains deeds.

@  Steevy Maximus : (19 September 2020 - 08:03 AM)

COPS, Spiral Zone, Shadow Strikers, Action Man, Centurions, MegaForce. They wouldn’t replicate the old lines, but simply acknowledging their existence would be nifty.

@  Steevy Maximus : (19 September 2020 - 08:01 AM)

I would love to see GI Joe become something of a “celebration of action figures”. Hasbro has SO MANY old action figure properties, and many could slot into the GI Joe umbrella with relative ease.

@  Otaku : (19 September 2020 - 12:04 AM)

G.I. Joe, CyberCOPS, and M.A.S.K. all seem like something that would work from Animated or Prime, though CyberCOPS might have been a bit trickier from Prime.

@  Sabrblade : (18 September 2020 - 11:02 PM)

Rik Alvarez originally wanted the last episode of Prime to spinoff into a new MASK reboot.

@  Otaku : (18 September 2020 - 08:19 PM)

The failed Hasbroverse reminds me how so many things could have been spun off from Transformers: Animated and (after that) Transformers: Prime.

@  ▲ndrusi : (18 September 2020 - 12:43 PM)

Requiem of the Wreckers was post-Revolution, but it was also, you know, a single issue.

@  NotVeryKnightly : (18 September 2020 - 11:06 AM)

But Roche didn't have a series to keep out from the crossovers since Sins of the Wreckers was before Revolution.

@  NotVeryKnightly : (18 September 2020 - 11:01 AM)

Oh wait, that post said Roche, not Barber.

@  Rycochet : (18 September 2020 - 10:46 AM)

And then seemed surprised nobody particlarly wanted it.

@  NotVeryKnightly : (18 September 2020 - 10:25 AM)

Wasn't Barber among the editorial guys that pushed for Hasbroverse?

The horror,Hasbro's facebook page has FOC Bruticus colored in G-2 colors,I want the game informer colors not neon G-2 colors. Hasbro what are you doing? WHY the hideous G-2 neon colors?
http://www.facebook.....type=1

I want the the Game stop store magazine Game informer colors,that were non-neom/Non-G-2 Colored:
http://i75.photobuck..._scaled_800.jpg

Can someone please email hasbro & ask them which FOC Bruticus colors their using. the Game informer magazine colors of the toyfair facebook neon G-2 colors.

Can we all form a petition & ask hasbro to use the game stop game informer magazine FOC Bruticus/combaticons colors instead.

Is their someone or a crew at Hasbro on a deliberate mission to Ruin Transformers toys by slapping ugly color schemes on them?

do the hasbro crew think the second colors will be more appealing to younger kids?

are these second colors being done deliberately to force fans to buy the Takara versions?

Are these second colors being done on purpose to release the awful colors first? then later on release the molds in better colors,to make fans pay for the molds over & over again?

Either way,I loved the Game informer magazine colors the best. as they looked great on the mold & MORE IMPORTANTLY MADE THE MOLD LOOK MORE GROWN UP & geared for a older teenager/fans buying audience.

I was hoping when I saw FOC Bruticus in those ugly colors at Hasbro's nyc toyfair this saturday. that these were the rusehed un-finished test shot colors & not the final colors.

GEE GADS,Those recent hasbro facebook FOC Bruticus colors are pure awful. the neon colors are blinding & look horrid/aful/toddler on those molds.

the neon yellow swindle looks leaps & bounds worse than the mustard yellow dull colored swindle. Neon Brawl looks like lime green jello colored. Vortex thatv red looks bad & that purple neon colored copter blade makes the mold look like garbage as it doesn't blend it with the other colors. that neon colored purple blast off has un-realitic shuttle colors & looks worse than the game informer gold colors,at the very least the gold colors had age & looked cool. the more neon blue+neon green+neon yellow high lights all over onslaught just looks like throw up & pure awful. the neon yellow should upward bladed on bruticus look horrible & no where as great/cool/awesome as the first colors grey shoulder upward things from the game informer magazine.

The Hasbro facebook bruticus combiner parts & weapons looks awful/horrible/puke compared to the awesome Game stop magaine game informer combiner parts & weapons. Purple neon bruticus fist are ulgy & blinding. the mix matched neon colored tiny weapons that combine to form the huge bruticus hand weapon look so miix matched & don't blend into to one another well enough to form a convincing looking big weapon. The game stop magazine game informer combiner parts & weapons look much more adult/mature/bland/normal/non-toddler looking & more awesome.

In closing: if hasbro colors this FOC Bruticus in these ugly neon colors,then I simply won't buy it. I might buy the takara non-neon colors instead. I have a feeling Takara will color FOC Bruticus in G-1 1985 Combaticons/bruticus colors. the takara colors will probably look better than the game informer magazine colors & the horrid/awful recent hasbro facebook G-2/Neon Colors

The neon colors are a test sample. based on everything (at least that I have read) from Toyfair. Bruticus's final colors will be closer to his in game informer colors.

I was told personally by Josh Jivoin the colors were going to be close to what you see in the game.

That does not make me think that the alternate one they showed at Toy Fair isn't also going to see some kind of release, as they had stock photos for that version in their presentation.

I didn't read the whole rambling thing. But I am amused by folks pulling G2 out when it's much, much closer to Energon Bruticus Maximus. Heh.

My feeling is it's a cool toy in either set of colors.
