@  Kalidor : (16 January 2017 - 11:15 PM)

Correct

@  BlackMax : (16 January 2017 - 10:37 PM)

So correct me if I'm wrong... it's good that we see the ads, but it's better if we click them?

@  Kalidor : (16 January 2017 - 05:24 PM)

I wonder if any other blockers (javascript, etc) are triggering it. I hate to do it but I have to do something. I don't want to be like Forbes that makes the site un-usable with adblock.. but I do want to remind people that ads are necessary.

@  Dracula : (16 January 2017 - 01:23 PM)

Yeah I had turned off adblock a while ago and got the same message last night.

@  Lazy Garou : (16 January 2017 - 12:38 PM)

anyone seen the korean method 1?

@  Arazyr : (16 January 2017 - 12:11 PM)

I got something similar recently. I think it was due to the site being set up to use https. AdBlock counted it as a different site. I had to update my settings.

@  wonko the sane? : (16 January 2017 - 09:31 AM)

I got it this morning, but it turns out my ad blocker was actually on. I could have sworn I turned it off for the allspark already though...

@  BlackMax : (16 January 2017 - 07:20 AM)

Yeah, so did I. Only one time though.

@  Pennpenn : (16 January 2017 - 03:05 AM)

Got a popup saying I'm using ad-block on this site when I am not. Huh.

@  Bass X0 : (16 January 2017 - 02:29 AM)

In that case I say it is survival of the cutest! Do I hear a second on that? And against?

@  TheMightyMol... : (16 January 2017 - 01:24 AM)

The platypus is nature's way of saying "I made this from scraps I found on the floor, and it can STILL hug you up."

@  MEDdMI : (15 January 2017 - 11:05 PM)

That's what they WANT you to think. They're already a mashup of at least 3 other creatures. Platypi are already Megazords by themselves.

@  Tm_Silverclaw : (15 January 2017 - 10:52 PM)

But it's a platypus.. They don't really do anything.

Not in modern times, anyway.

@  ShadowMan024 : (14 January 2017 - 04:29 PM)

I don't think there are any dogs big enough to fit an entire person in.

@  Waspinator : (14 January 2017 - 03:31 PM)

Depends on how big the dog is.

@  ShadowMan024 : (14 January 2017 - 02:56 PM)

If you're inside of a dog you've probably been chopped up into dog chow and won't be able to read anyway.

@  Lazy Garou : (14 January 2017 - 01:36 PM)

misread a facebook title about Bauman's legacy as the importance of Batman's legacy.

@  Waspinator : (14 January 2017 - 11:33 AM)

A book is man's best friend outside of a dog, and inside of a dog it's too dark to read.

Wow the MtMtE solicit and cover almost gives me the shivers. That sounds amazing. And it features the full return of real Cons to the book.

That RG1 cover is pretty awesome too. Best piece by Wildman I've seen on this series yet. VERY excited.icon-hotrod.gif

Also, no, I'm sorry, Turmoil has at no point ever been anything resembling a fan-favourite character. He's that murky guy who sort of appeared in that one issue.

They said they would do "corrected colors" in modern scenes but keep old style Marvel colors in flashbacks. It makes a sort of sense. Though I don't see why keeping Marvel colors throughout wouldn't have been easier/better.

Oh, and Turmoil was in TWO issues! So... Yeah, still not really a favorite.


-ZacWilliam, maybe this issue will make him one? Maybe?

I think if you added those two issues together and squinted, you could make out about one issue's worth of artwork. Murkity murk murk.

Remember when each TF had a special super power? (Yes, ok that was pretty much just 1984. But remember it?) Maybe Turmoil's power is Murk. That'd be pretty cool. He could be like the anti-Rainbow Bright, creating a field of murkity dark confusion to turn the battlefield to his advantage!

I'm all for advertising hyperbole but referring to Turmoil as a "fan-favorite character" is pretty much outright lying.

Hell referring to Turmoil as "a character the fans may be aware exists" is kinda stretching.

Depends on what forums you read. For example, if you mostly read the IDW forums, then Turmoil IS a fan-favorite character. Let's not be all TFW2005 here and assume that the entirety of the fanbase is right here and the folks who aren't here agree with us. There's a spectrum of opinions across the Internet with some localized puddlings of beliefs.

His appearances were in issues that (I doubt) sold over a few thousand copies.

I mean, in all honesty, the largest segment of "The Fandom" are the people who watched the movies and maybe have seen a few episodes of Prime. They probably don't even know who DRIFT is to say nothing of his one time Commander who showed up for like fifteen panels across two comics.

It would be just as disingenuous to call Sky Garry the "fan favorite Autobot commander" or Paddles "the fan favorite Dinobot" even if you could find fifteen fans who agreed with it; that statement is far from definitive on a fandom-wide scale.

On the other hand...it's just a comic book, I should really just relax. icon-hotrod.gif

That's not what Prime Wheeljack looks like.


Well, I've seen him on the show AND have him sitting on my shelf, so to my eye he bears a resemblance. I'm aware he's not an exact copy, but he looks more than a little similar.

He's definitely cribbing some design elements from Prime. The RID comic in general seems to draw from current or possible near-future toys, and that's a good thing.

What exactly are the criteria for someone to be a fan favorite? Like over on the IDW boards, there's about three people excited about Turmoil and he's barely been mentioned since the Drift miniseries when he last appeared. He doesn't get a tenth of the attention guys like Overlord do.

Its just a selling tactic, thats all.

Its not true but its really nothing to complain seriously about.

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