I wish they were more universal like Beast Wars, Animated or Prime and as professionally done,

@  Maximus Ambus : (28 September 2020 - 02:06 PM)

The Netflix shows are done for adults, the Generation toyline is for adults who grew up with G1.

@  Sabrblade : (28 September 2020 - 12:53 PM)

Who said it ever was?

@  -LittleAutob... : (28 September 2020 - 12:43 PM)

Whatever happened to WFC Earthrise being a kids show X'D

@  wonko the sane? : (28 September 2020 - 11:43 AM)

Cool, my last tablet couldn't run it, and I stopped caring by the time I got the new one. So thanks!

@  Otaku : (28 September 2020 - 11:27 AM)

There are crossover characters, but the amount and distribution... Marvel Vs Capcom this ain't.  If @wonko the sane? my bad!

@  Otaku : (28 September 2020 - 11:21 AM)

I've been playing for *checks account* 1002 days, 23 hours.  So, by 2021, it will have been three years.  I think it takes place in its own continuity, largely inspired by G1 but borrowing from other places.

@  Otaku : (28 September 2020 - 11:19 AM)

@wonko the sane? Can only speak for Earth Wars, but so few they're easy to forget.

@  wonko the sane? : (28 September 2020 - 07:39 AM)

Didn't they already do the across universes thing in that tablet game?

@  Demovere Xeno : (28 September 2020 - 05:30 AM)

Also, make the setting an amalgamation of different Transformers series, rather than based on a specific one. Bring in things like 'Sentinel Major' as the primo Autobot jerk, and sleek car mode Vehicons as the Decepticons' basic grunt.

@  Demovere Xeno : (28 September 2020 - 05:27 AM)

KT just needs to incorporate the vehicle modes into the combat system, like Platinum did for Devastation, so they're for more than just wheeling it across the battlefield. =P

@  Demovere Xeno : (28 September 2020 - 05:25 AM)

Transformers: Warriors of Cybertron! =D

@  Tm_Silverclaw : (28 September 2020 - 05:15 AM)

I want a Power Rangers Mosu. I would also take a Transformers Mosu. :D

@  TheMightyMol... : (28 September 2020 - 04:50 AM)

It even ended on a sequel hook.

@  Demovere Xeno : (28 September 2020 - 04:40 AM)

Man, I just want another Devastation game... =(

@  NotVeryKnightly : (28 September 2020 - 01:53 AM)

Aren't TFs way more varied than Joes, as far as they'd work in gameplay? Like, Omega Supreme is vastly different from Bumblebee.

@  unluckiness : (27 September 2020 - 10:16 PM)

Hell, ripoff Super Robot Wars withTFs

@  unluckiness : (27 September 2020 - 10:16 PM)

IDK they could make something like FF tactics or Fire Emblem ripoff with Robots and i'd buy it

@  Steevy Maximus : (27 September 2020 - 09:43 PM)

See, I feel GI Joe (with it's varied cast) is a better fit for a strategy game, where as Transformers feels more suited for a shooter.

@  Maruten : (27 September 2020 - 08:28 PM)

I might give them points for making a strategy game if it's actually a good strategy game.

@  wonko the sane? : (27 September 2020 - 07:48 PM)

I mean, points for making a strategy game instead of third person shooter, but: urrrrgggg. Cyberverse.

@  wonko the sane? : (27 September 2020 - 07:47 PM)

A transformers game for the switch? *checks* Urrrggg... cyberverse...

@  Steevy Maximus : (27 September 2020 - 06:28 PM)

October will be a big month for Hasbro fans: Zoids, GI Joe AND Transformers all have brand new console games. All on the Switch at that!

@  wonko the sane? : (27 September 2020 - 09:04 AM)

At least in animated he was more driven than just "loyal bootlick".

@  unluckiness : (27 September 2020 - 08:29 AM)

Oof, That's a huge downgrade

@  Maximus Ambus : (27 September 2020 - 02:35 AM)

After rewatching Animated Sound and Fury, in my head canon Titans Return Soundwave is that Soundwave.

@  wonko the sane? : (26 September 2020 - 04:09 PM)

On an unrelated note: I just got the BBTS email about kingdom pre-orders... and even the stuff I don't want I'm perfectly willing to get if it means I can have the rest of it.

@  wonko the sane? : (26 September 2020 - 04:08 PM)

It's digimon. So first one, then the other.

@  TheMightyMol... : (26 September 2020 - 12:53 PM)

50/50 odds, it's either a helicopter with limbs, or a scantily-clad human with heli blades on their back. If female, 90% odds on the second one.

@  NotVeryKnightly : (26 September 2020 - 12:39 PM)

I read that as "Helicoptermon" and wondered what kind of Digimon that was.

@  Bass X0 : (26 September 2020 - 12:35 PM)

Helicopter-mom, transform!

@  Maximus Ambus : (25 September 2020 - 11:58 PM)

Aw I scratched the hood of my 35th anniversary Bluestreak. Fortunately he's in robot mode a lot.

No decoration could improve the wall more than Knockout himself

@  TheMightyMol... : (25 September 2020 - 05:04 PM)

The wall could use some decorating, though. Maybe a nice shelf or a portrait.

@  -LittleAutob... : (25 September 2020 - 02:23 PM)

@  Bass X0 : (25 September 2020 - 01:11 PM)

@  wonko the sane? : (24 September 2020 - 02:15 PM)

Gnarly.

@  PlutoniumBoss : (24 September 2020 - 01:05 PM)

Beast Era, a blonde rat called Sunsqueaker.

@  TheMightyMol... : (24 September 2020 - 01:00 PM)

And then Knockout was in the wall again.

@  Sabrblade : (24 September 2020 - 12:53 PM)

Knockout: "Ooh, sorry, Lord Megatron. The correct word was... 'Decepticon'."

@  -LittleAutob... : (24 September 2020 - 11:15 AM)

Knockout: *while doing a crossword puzzle* Lord Megatron, whats a ten letter word for disappointment? | Megatron: ...... Starscream.

@  Maximus Ambus : (23 September 2020 - 01:20 PM)

@Bass X0 Shockwave did it.

@  TheMightyMol... : (23 September 2020 - 11:56 AM)

At least it's not Suntwerker.

@  wonko the sane? : (23 September 2020 - 11:19 AM)

I read that name as "suntweaker" the first time, and was terrified for a moment...

@  Bass X0 : (23 September 2020 - 03:41 AM)

Prowl did nothing wrong.

@  TheMightyMol... : (23 September 2020 - 01:50 AM)

Smashy, Stabby, Selfy, and Shieldy.

@  Xero Prime : (22 September 2020 - 08:52 PM)

RunFast, MuckyTrail, TrackBreaker and Sunstreaker

@  TheMightyMol... : (22 September 2020 - 06:16 AM)

Runamuck, Fasttrack, Sunstreaker, and Trailbreaker.

That's... a lot.

Did BotCon charge that much?

--LBD "Nytetrayn"

Wrong forum.

 

 

 

No.. it's a direct qestion and direct response to a previous post directly related to Power Rangers.

Well, I think Power Morphicon is kind of in a weird area. They are more like the old BotCon before it was officially licensed. FunPub era could cost $300-$400 for not attending and that was mostly the figures you were paying for the boxset. I was too young during the old BotCon days, but this could have been close to what it would cost to do a non attending package in today's prices for them (if they did it).

I can be completely wrong with this as I'm not fully knowledgeable with how it used to run, costs, etc.

IF Hasbro does indeed buy Power Rangers in full once the contracts allow, I can see them more or less putting a stop to Morphicon & folding the Rangers into HasCon with everything else.

See I don't think Hasbro would even bother to shut them down. Sure they'll just fold Power Rangers into HasCon, but I can foresee Morphicon lingering just as TFCon keeps going strong despite never being the official convention.

Do we know how GoGo is going to handle this? It started off as a flashback to current BOOM continuity but it won't really make sense for Drakkon to be assaulting them twice in the same timeline.

Just noticed this was put up on YT a few days ago; a behind the scenes video of the Lord Drakkon teaser video:

 

 

I've got to say, I'm really impressed with the attention to detail in the creation of some of the old props... Lord Zedd and Rita's staffs, as well as the broken morpher and weapons on display in the throne room. I'd watch the heck out of a Lord Drakkon Netflix series that gives some more history on this alternate world he comes from and how all this came about. Although I don't think I originally watched Power Rangers much beyond Zeo's end, it seems like the Lord Drakkon stuff is perfectly crafted to appeal to the nostalgia of people my age who grew up watching MMPR's 3 seasons.

 

Are the Yellow and Red costumed characters also present supposed to be Rangers, or just minions in armor made in the style of the outfits from Drakkon's past?

I'd go for such a series as long as its tone wasn't too far darker than the likes of Time Force and RPM (when they weren't being balanced out by all their moments of levity). I don't need an uber-grimdark Power Rangers series with graphic violence or swearing.

 

The current Voltron series probably hits just the right sweet spot of how (for lack of a better descriptor) "dark and serious" a show related to a children's toy brand can and should be without coming off as either feeling too miserable or attempting to be "faux mature".

 

Smart writing is the key.

I think the concept of being educated and being able to educate is something that more people need more of in their lives.

No, we don't all know everything but we should spread and share that what we do know.

If I'm consistently misspelling a word, I would want and expect people to correct me as should I imagine all decent people who know the value of good literacy.

Its just arrogant laziness to know you're spelling a word incorrectly and not correct yourself or ignore the advice when people do tell you how to spell a word correctly.

Aren't they all tied to the Morphing Grid in a very small way. Like they spread out they powers to it's barest potential.

So, for all their armored, military looks, they're no more powerful than the average footsoldier enemy (e.g. - Putties, Cogs, etc.)?

Went back and looked it up and I was right. All the sentries have the barest amount of the Morphin Grid enhancing their armors through Drakkon's possession of the Power Coins other than Blue which is is why there aren't any Triceratops Sentries.

Issue 13 shows Drakkon revoking a battalion General's use of the yellow coin and giving it to someone else.. but makes no mention of the others.   When Billy turns off the other coins and drains Drakkon's powers a few issues later, the mastadon sentries retreat still wearing their armor.
