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)

I think thor was just too smart to NOT call us stupid next to him.

@  Pennpenn : (26 May 2017 - 07:18 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.

I remember a fanfic that had Swindle as Lawyer.

@  SHIELD Agent 47 : (25 May 2017 - 10:08 PM)

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

Understandable. I'm fine with it though, but at this point I'm finding myself disappointed with the FE situation again because of Bulkhead.

The jet feet don't bother me. I like his proportions and the superior head sculpt. A little work with the colors and he'll be pretty damn sweet.

I will continue to defend the changes in beast machines to my dying breath. While some charaters BecKs completely unlikable like Silverbolt they all made sense. The situations they were dealing with would make anyone crack.

My primary concern with Starscream is that because his transformation seems to involve basically folding him in half (like the FE version), his alt-mode is going to be disporportionately small (like the FE version).

Do you actually own the FE version? He doesn't fold in half at all, in fact he un-folds, and he's in perfect scale with the other two Cons we have so far; Megatron and Soundwave.
This Starcsream looks like it'll tower over Megatron!

Seriously? I could actually ask for that kind of money for my FE Bulkhead? Not that I'm going to, mind you.

http://www.tfw2005.c...-pictorial.html

Not exactly towering, but the wings give him a lot more height. Once he assumes the proper sycophantic posture, it may be better.

Me, I'm not a fan of the in-show scale, so it really doesn't bother me much that Starscream is almost as tall as Megatron. He's still a twig compared to Megsy's buffness.

... Yes, I do, and you're absolutely right. FE Starscream is to-scale in robot mode with Megatron and Soundwave. He then folds in half to become an itty-bitty jet plane, much like PRID Starscream appears to, and my concern is that PRID Starscream's alt-mode will be disproportionately small, like FE Starscream's is.

What you're saying is you want a spindly little robot to turn into a huge jet?
And just where are you getting your measurements for his jet mode? It's not like any of the cons are in proportion to the bots and both Starscream and Soundwave match up in both modes.

Indeed. TF Prime Megatron is noticeably taller than Optimus Prime, but Optimus can match him almost blow-for-blow.

This is an absolutely fair point, and ultimately it's something I'm just going to have to deal with. Mostly it just bugs me that FE Starscream turns into a jet that's smaller than Bumblebee's car mode, and I want a significantly bigger jet to represent his alt-mode.

(Starscream's an F-16ish jet, though, right? Aren't those bigger than most UAVs?)
