Back in my day, I called them "Mini-Spies".

@  Whirl Maximus : (28 May 2017 - 02:06 PM)

Think about the implications of it though, robots in disguise themselves infiltrated and paranoid by the recent shifts in the status quo.

@  unluckiness : (28 May 2017 - 07:47 AM)

I'm kinda glad. A couple tie-in stories aside, Secret Invasion was a mess.

@  Steevy Maximus : (28 May 2017 - 07:23 AM)

Almost makes you wonder if some of the aborted Micronauts relaunch concept didn't slip in...

@  Whirl Maximus : (28 May 2017 - 07:20 AM)

Titan Masters could quite easily have been Transformers: Secret invasion, the return of the Mini-cons/Stentarians but noooooo, it had to be whatever the pit it is.

@  Steevy Maximus : (27 May 2017 - 05:18 PM)

Yeah, but it's cheaper than all the Hong Kong sellers running at $65+

Titan Masters is filled with false advertising, Grax doesn't make any figure invisible and Xort doesn't do anything with gravity. Maybe they'll be in the Transformer toys of tomorrow which will be actual robots with AI.

Thor was a great guy. Same as most of the Asgard. Loki was a jerk, though.

@  wonko the sane? : (26 May 2017 - 07:21 PM)

Six of one, half a dozen of the other?

@  wonko the sane? : (26 May 2017 - 07:17 PM)

I always interpreted that scene to mean that asgardians weren't capable of breaking down problems in the same way as humans.

@  Pennpenn : (26 May 2017 - 06:58 AM)

I mean, SG1 was a good show on balance. One of my favourite things was Thor admitting he found humans good to keep around because they so often came up with stupid ideas that nevertheless worked out.

@  Whirl Maximus : (26 May 2017 - 05:59 AM)

Those episodes were 1969 and 2010.

@  Whirl Maximus : (26 May 2017 - 05:59 AM)

Stargate sg1 was loosely based on the movie, it thrived on continuity it was impressive how old situations and solutions would come back in unexpected ways. Continuum had it's villain use the characters own solution in two previous episodes against them.

@  Pennpenn : (26 May 2017 - 05:39 AM)

And yeah, name is based on a part of my surname. Can't remember why I picked it. Lost to memories of the primordial early 2000s.

@  Pennpenn : (26 May 2017 - 05:37 AM)

Like how Abydos in the movie is in another galaxy on the far side of the universe, but Abydos in SG1 is the closest world to Earth (and that was the only reason the gate could still get there) and even getting to other galaxies was impossible with the normal gates.

@  Pennpenn : (26 May 2017 - 05:35 AM)

I was very tired when I said that, but what I meant was a lot of stuff that is in the original Stargate movie is contradicted a lot in Stargate SG1.

No, I am referring to before Beast Wars: Uprising. I swear Swindle was a lawyer in a story before "A Brush With Infamy".

@  Telly : (25 May 2017 - 09:47 PM)

i cant get the link to work for the life of me. just go to the wiki and type "a brush with infamy" in the search box and itll come up

@  Telly : (25 May 2017 - 09:40 PM)

@  SHIELD Agent 47 : (25 May 2017 - 09:25 PM)

I swear I've read the story but now I forget which one it is.

@  SHIELD Agent 47 : (25 May 2017 - 09:25 PM)

When has G1 Swindle been a lawyer before?

@  Rycochet : (25 May 2017 - 07:20 PM)

All I know about PennPenn is he's so good they named him twice.

@  Tm_Silverclaw : (25 May 2017 - 07:02 PM)

@  Foffy : (25 May 2017 - 06:47 PM)

The prequel-creep from the original Stargate movie to SG1 is kinda funny.

I always thought TM2 Megatron was a disappointing follow-up to TM Megatron.

I realize that may make me sound insane in some circles.

In general or the toy?


Well, both. I kind of thought the show model looked like Big Bird, and the toy was a giant field of homogeneous red.

Plus, well, TM Megatron is clearly the best BW Megs toy ever. He did all his best stuff in it. And he was a dinosaur, which is way cooler than a dragon.

And, frankly, TM2 Megs looks like BW Megs is wearing a huge red furry costume.

I agree, the TM show model and toy (baring GPS) versions of BW Megatron are lot better than his TM2 form.

Heck I also like Cryotek waaaaaay more than TM2 Megatron.

Yeah, I much prefer the Cryotek version of the toy. This is a personal hangup, I admit, but I am much more forgiving with an all-blue toy than with an all-red toy.

I'm not alone anymore!

(To add, I've always found the toy kind of a mess to deal with, every part of him just flops about everywhere, especially those damned wings: a solid toy he ain't.)

I think the coolest BW Megs toy is the BotCon one, and he never did anything even a little cool in that one.

I guess he was barely in Theft of the Golden Disc.

The am exhausts are just not very prominent details anymore.

What disturbs me was that one concept art that was circulating prior to his release that had even LESS prominent exhausts.

Yeahhh... Don Figueroa's concept of Classics Hot Rod downplays a lot of things I'd rather not see downplayed, so I'm glad we got what we got instead. Plus it isn't be saddled with big horizontal shoulder plates and a circa-06 Don face.

Which on that note, makes me REALLY glad we never got the "Sure I GUESS that's Soundwave" car Soundwave design he made.

TM2 Megatron does make me wish BotCon-- or anyone, Hasbro, even-- had gotten to make that version which was a repaint/remold of RiD Megatron in TM2 Megatron colors...

Plus, rubber ducky!

I'm not quite sure why, but I used to rather like that Classics Soundwave design. But yeah, it really doesn't look all that like Soundwave.

Still, that design would probably have made a better Ironhide or Ratchet than the one they actually made.

Agreed. I would LOVE to have a new Universe Ironhide and Ratchet, and I think that design there would be absolutely fine.

Sounds totally reasonable to me. Flappy wings don't excuse floppy neck.

Yeah, the floppy neck really ruins TM2 Megatron for me. It would have been better if they had gone with the same kind of neck BW2 Galvatron has. Then you might actually be able to pose it, and have it be a useful part of the toy. Not just hang there like a limp phallis.
