@  wlg3 : (28 April 2017 - 01:15 AM)

I really enjoy the creative sub forums of TFW, though, like their kitbash and fan art forums. The creative forums have lots of talented, friendly people and is an active, supportive community.

@  wlg3 : (28 April 2017 - 01:13 AM)

Gotta agree with Evac... TFW has a lot of cool, talented people, but they're overwhelmingly outnumbered by unbearable neckbeards

@  LordGigaIce : (27 April 2017 - 10:20 PM)

I do enjoy the TFW podcast. and that subforum's usually very civil. It's the best place to actually talk about TFers there :D also the Radicons forum is ok if you just like looking at kitbash pr0n

@  Evac : (27 April 2017 - 10:18 PM)

There's some cool people on the site, thankfully. It's just the morons tend to outnumber them... Which is generally the rule on most forums thanks to the GIFT.

@  Evac : (27 April 2017 - 10:17 PM)

In all honesty, the better parts of the site are the non-TF parts.

@  LordGigaIce : (27 April 2017 - 10:13 PM)

yeah, and their love of 3p is just...i don't get it.

@  Noideaforaname : (27 April 2017 - 10:03 PM)

TFW can be... literal with the rules sometimes. Like, a discussion about favorite human characters gets LOCKED if you mention Agent Fowler because "all Prime discussion belongs in the RiD forums".

@  LordGigaIce : (27 April 2017 - 09:48 PM)

Also, as far as TFW's No Politics goes...it's nice in theory but then you end up with the current IDW stories that lean HEAVILY into politics and religion. I've had more than a few lengthy posts exploring the parallels between the IDW Decepticon movement and various real world socialist movements deleted because it was technically "politics." So hug 'em. I really only visit there these days to poke around the podcast subforum.

@  LordGigaIce : (27 April 2017 - 09:45 PM)

My person canon is that the Quintessons created Cybertron as a factory to make the TFers as mechs, but they became self aware and they revolted. then Cybertronian society began to develop and the events of the revolt became mythologised as the stories of the Knights of Cyberton, the Thirteen, etc...real events that became the basis for religion, essentially.

@  Rycochet : (27 April 2017 - 06:49 PM)

Transformers believe they were created by <X>, others believe they were created by <Y> and/or <Z>. There are lots of theories, disagreements but ultimately nobody knows for sure.

@  Noideaforaname : (27 April 2017 - 05:11 PM)

Squid robits build machines. Machines decide they had enough of that and kicked the squid robits off the planet. Everything's pretty chill for a while until machines get mad for dumb reasons and break the planet. THE END

@  Bass X0 : (27 April 2017 - 04:22 PM)

Primus created Cybertron and The Thirteen. Then later, the Quintessons come to the planet they call Seibertron and use Primus' power; the plasma energy chamber to forge military robots Destrons and consumer robots Cybertrons. The Cybertrons and Destrons rise up and drive the Quintessons away but are unable to live in peace with each other. And so the Cybertron population become the Autobot army and the Destrons become Decepticons, with the Autobots renaming their planet Cybertron. Far far later still, bacteria that was present on the asteroid Primus imprisoned himself within has evolved into organic life within Cybertron...

But aside from the ending Trent and Siph made for them at FunPub, the 3H Wreckers comics kinda sucked.

So, what? The maker of the makers kinda thing?

@  Bass X0 : (27 April 2017 - 02:55 PM)

My fanon is both the Quintesson and Primus origins. They're compatible.

@  Rycochet : (27 April 2017 - 02:37 PM)

I prefer the profile book/movie interpretation of the Quintessons, a race whose entire purpose is to capture and execute those who escape Unicron.

@  Noideaforaname : (27 April 2017 - 02:03 PM)

I like the Quintesson origin partly because it's a twist on the robot revolution cliche, partly because of the irony of a people uniting against their own creators just to fall into endless civil war, and mostly because i just really like the Quintessons themselves.

@  Diecast : (27 April 2017 - 12:03 PM)

I preferred the Primus origin until it became the more common origin, fiction wise.

@  ▲ndrusi : (27 April 2017 - 11:08 AM)

Since the analogy to humans isn't perfect, it could also be interpreted as closer to "maternity ward."

@  Locoman : (27 April 2017 - 11:02 AM)

I think the most unfortunately named Transformer in their society would probably be Hot Spot, which is like having a human named "Placenta."

@  Locoman : (27 April 2017 - 11:02 AM)

Confusing, I bet.

@  Noideaforaname : (27 April 2017 - 10:58 AM)

I wonder what everyday Transformer society is like where half the population are named after common objects and stuff...

Found Trilogy Prime today (the Deluxe with the trailer) at my local Target (65th Street in Sacramento, CA), and boy, does it look snazzy. But I couldn't buy it because it rang up for $30. (that is why the picture is of the toy in the Target employee's hands and not in my own with a receipt next to it.) Still... this might be a news item, as I don't recall this being sighted anywhere domestically yet.

It opens, but not the way trailers actually open. But there's no conversion or anything, it just cracks open. There's nothing inside it. It is cool though. I'd buy it for $20. jive, who am I kidding, if I had the dough I would have bought it anyway, LOL.

UPDATE: I talked to my man who tipped me off about this item's in-stockness, and he says it IS $30. (He said '20 dollar trailer' and I misinterpreted that. He LITERALLY meant they were charging $20 for the trailer!) It sure is a pretty box, though.

If hasbro was smart, they would have only sold this deluxe Optimus with this trailer. I'm sure a lot of people won't be getting it since the the base figure looks worse than the original release (though not necessarily worse than the crazy gold repaint) and comes with no weapons, but just a big box instead.

Truth be told, I've not been happy with any of the DotM trailers. I originally wanted both the CV one and the Ultimate one, but I've persuaded myself that I don't need them. It's kind of a shame that I've only felt the need to buy two Optimus toys from the whole of the DotM line (normal CV commander and the first WM deluxe).

With a deluxe-scale cab and a trailer that size? Yeah, that's about a $30 toy. I believe it.

Well, there's one Transformers item I'll be hunting for now. If the gold gradient on the nose of the truck cab really is faint/nonexistent, I'll probably just use the first Wal-Mart deluxe OP that I currently have instead (he at least has a gun to store in the trailer, too).

I was half-joking, actually; I've been on the fence about Lunarfire OP because counting this deluxe OP with trailer, that would be three iterations of the mold that I'd have gotten - and they'd all barely look different. icon-waspy.gif I don't typically buy duplicates of the same mold, since I try to budget my hobby spending; I think the only times I've gotten multiple versions of the same mold are a few Mini-Con teams (just three of the sword-combiner teams, really), the Energon combiner components, and the Cybertron Hot Shot and Red Alert molds (replacing their normal forms with the Cyb Defense versions and getting the extensively-visually-different Breakaway and Cannonball). Lunarfire OP's oversized gun is tempting, but not really tempting enough to spend full deluxe price on just to get. icon-op.gif
