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

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

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

@  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

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)

Nope.. Pennpenn is actually a Prinny dood!

@  Foffy : (25 May 2017 - 06:47 PM)

Hand-Lasers are indeed reserved for Classics Kup. However, Space T-Rexes DO send the books.

Brawn does it, too.

This whole idea that Hasbro retired the Dinobots is highly dubious. It sounds like the kind of thing a third string Hasbro marketing person spouts off in a side interview at a convention one time, and then two years later when Hasbro announces the new line of Target exclusive Masterpiece Dinobots people are saying "hey, remember when they retired the Dinobots? What happened with that?"

The only consistent rule with Transformers is Hasbro is going to do whatever they feel like and view as likely to be profitable. They can say all they want about what's retired but unless it's a legally prompted decision (a la reissues not passing drop tests), anything they say about permanent decisions is meaningless.


Heck, take a look at G. I. Joe.

In 1987, they had the original Cobra Commander get shot in the back by a traitor.

In 1990, he returned, re-took control of Cobra, ordered the traitor buried alive, and for good measure ordered a number of suspected co-conspirators buried alive with him.

Ca. 1992, they had it that two of the people who were buried alive, Zartan and Billy, somehow managed to escape... just in time for Zartan to get a new figure release.

That same year, they revealed that a third guy, Firefly, faked his death and also managed to escape... thereby giving the writers a chance to show off his new figure as well.

Oh, and the next year a fourth guy, Dr. Mindbender, got cloned because CC decided that he actually did need his resident mad scientist after all. Cue new figure.

And now I hear that Sneak-Peak, a Joe who bought it in 1991 when he got mowed down by a Cobra heavy weapons team, is now alive and well in the IDW continuation of the series.

Yeah.

None of which has an relevance to this topic at all.

I just assumed "retired" meant that Hasbro had no ideas on how to use the Dinobots in upcoming fiction, so it was up to Tieger and crew to come up with something compelling.

After all, nothing's REALLY off the table.

From the article it sounds like the dinobots were off-limits as just throw-away character models, store exclusives, cameos etc. So, kudos to Hasbro for valuing the integrity of the universe they're establishing.

I think the Hasbro reps Tieger spoke with raised good points. It doesn't make sense for Dinobots to be, well, Dinobots in a world that has never been exposed to Earth. It sounds like they liked the general pitch, and understood why the characters were useful mechanically, but they needed a sound reason for them to exist in that form.

It's all there in the article. Tieger builds a back story from previously established material and boom! The whole story arc is more sound, plot holes are closed, everyone goes to their designing corners happy. The system works.

Yeah, not buying the "retirement" thing either. Not least because of the trademark issue - gotta keep that name in circulation. I suppose we could end up with more green construction vehicles named Grimlock, but I find it more likely that we'll still get Dinobots every now and then.

Seems more likely that Hasbro just didn't have a place for them right now in Movie 4 or Prime, and wanted a good pitch for the video game that made sense.

Wasn't the DS version of WFC the last appearance of Grimlock?

War for Cybertron killed the Dinobots.

Yes, but the DS version of Grimlock turned into a tank instead of a Space T-Rex, so I guess Hasbro were OK with it.
