Hello?

@  Evac : (17 October 2017 - 04:39 PM)

Yeah, it's the Allspark.

@  wonko the sane? : (17 October 2017 - 04:35 PM)

Okay, so it is the allspark doing it, and not some piece of malware I need to run a system scan over, that's basically all I wanted to know.

@  Evac : (17 October 2017 - 04:34 PM)

If, say, Hillary or Bernie was president, we'd have a chance, but with the current administration... We're pretty much hugged.

@  Evac : (17 October 2017 - 04:32 PM)

I don't know why we're even bothering; there's no way in hell a GOP-controlled congress would listen to common proles like us.

@  Evac : (17 October 2017 - 04:32 PM)

Yeah, so did I.

@  wonko the sane? : (17 October 2017 - 04:19 PM)

Okay, so I just got a pop up telling me I need to call congress about the FCC killing net neutrality. Anyone else get that?

I'd probably use a primer coat on either of them.

Wonder if Overboard or Crashbash would be easier to paint over. Generally dark colors are harder but then again, screaming fuschia seems like it'd be difficult to cover too.

@  Onyxstrike : (15 October 2017 - 09:03 AM)

Yeah, I might've forgotten that the Beast is pretty much just a mindless killing machine. That's pretty much what I get for going off of the TFWiki summaries without having actually read any of it.

@  tffan01 : (15 October 2017 - 08:34 AM)

@Onyxstrike Well, to be fair, the quality of the story aside, Beast Within illustrates the fact that Dinobots are feral in nature, with what would happen if they actually lost control. That's a character flaw in a way, correct? 

@  2017 : (15 October 2017 - 08:21 AM)

Send me a PM if you need help getting to the true ending, also.

@  Strafe : (15 October 2017 - 08:15 AM)

Thinking about quirky robots occupies 30% of my brain's daily processing power. I can't remember birthdays and I never know where my phone is, but it's totally worth it.

@  2017 : (15 October 2017 - 08:03 AM)

Yay, I look forward to your dealings with quirky robots!

@  Strafe : (15 October 2017 - 08:01 AM)

Definitely, I started setting aside funds a month ago for the inevitable Black Friday digital sales in the Playstation and Xbox stores. Going to be ready this year, and that's one of the many games on my list!

@  2017 : (15 October 2017 - 07:30 AM)

Hey Strafe will you ever play Nier: Automata?

@  Onyxstrike : (15 October 2017 - 07:19 AM)

Plus, The Beast Within is overall not a very good story.

@  Onyxstrike : (15 October 2017 - 07:19 AM)

The problem is is that Victory's dreams are meant to prey on the Dinobot's character flaws. For instance, Grimlock downing every Decepticon in his path, but falling for Starscream's begging for mercy schtick, preys on his arrogence. What character flaws does The Beast Within prey on? Nothing. The entire premise of the book was to please the many fans who posed the many hypothetical "What if the Dinobots combined?" scenarios way back when, with a gratuitous death count to boot.

@  Bass X0 : (15 October 2017 - 05:51 AM)

What's wrong with wanting it to be a canon dream sequence?

@  TheMightyMol... : (14 October 2017 - 01:14 PM)

go home bass you are drunk

@  Bass X0 : (14 October 2017 - 12:15 PM)

My fanon is that The Beast Within is a follow up the Marvel UK annual story Victory. In Victory, the Dinobots are trapped within a dream world, unable to wake up - each one having dreams, ending in the Dinobots having another dream then waking up in a comic issue. My fanon is that The Beast Within is their final dream that finally pushes them into waking up.

@  TheMightyMol... : (14 October 2017 - 10:25 AM)

As long as that means The Beast Within is still non-canon, I'm fine with it.

@  Locoman : (14 October 2017 - 09:29 AM)

When everything is canon, nothing is.

@  SHIELD Agent 47 : (14 October 2017 - 09:25 AM)

The TF multiverse is an arbitrary concept. Whatever an author thinks, goes.

@  TheMightyMol... : (14 October 2017 - 05:59 AM)

Trypticon vs Deathsaurer. Make it happen!

@  tffan01 : (14 October 2017 - 05:31 AM)

Going by AVP, is Spider-Man and Zoids comic canon to the TF multiverse???

@  D Immortalis : (14 October 2017 - 12:37 AM)

stop that! we shall never speak of the "Embarassment", 'lest we be punished with more like it! =]

@  Pennpenn : (13 October 2017 - 08:23 PM)

Would the mutant heads have been on the headmasters or on the bodies (sort of like TR Galvatron's "helmet")?

@  Shrug : (13 October 2017 - 08:05 PM)

Alternate reality: Beast Wars mutant heads really took off. Nearly every Transformers since '96 has featured them. The big complaint against the line-wide gimmick in TR isn't being headmasters, it's the lack of mutant heads.

@  SHIELD Agent 47 : (13 October 2017 - 07:03 PM)

Car TF molds get made all the time; bat TF molds don't. I feel like that justifies making a new Convobat from a mold configured highly unlike the original.

@  Bass X0 : (13 October 2017 - 05:56 PM)

and yet Mindwipe is good enough to use as Convobat.

@  Shrug : (13 October 2017 - 03:19 PM)

I'm okay with that.

@  SHIELD Agent 47 : (13 October 2017 - 03:07 PM)

Takara seems to have decided that the TR Chromedome mold is unsuitable for anyone else besides Chromedome.

@  SHIELD Agent 47 : (13 October 2017 - 03:07 PM)

*shrug* No 21st century (Macromaster) Nightbeat toy seems to have satisfied a decent number of people, from what I understand.

@  Locoman : (13 October 2017 - 02:57 PM)

You could probably finagle a pretty good Nightbeat body from TR Chromedome, or even a heavy retool of Cogman.

@  SHIELD Agent 47 : (13 October 2017 - 02:44 PM)

Nightbeat in particular. Hasbro seems to love him.

@  Shrug : (13 October 2017 - 12:21 PM)

Yeah, they seem to be exploring every possible avenue of G1 now.

Too good at his jobs would have caused applejack an even bigger problem. Then she wouldn't have a legitimate reason to see him off. Not wanting him to help is strictly personal, and if he was too good, the rest of the apple family would have wanted him to stay because he was useful. Not wanting him to help AND having him be legitimately bad at the work: now everyone wants him gone.

It would have changed the writing of the entire episode basically.

And probably for the better. Having to struggle with wanting to do the right thing but being reluctant to give up the free help would have been a fun twist on the concept, fitting for a show where the characters are expected to learn some moral lesson every week. I don't even remember what the moral was, this time.

Not disagreeing with you, just calling it as I see it. Frankly, I feel that spike got the short end of the stick on this being painted as incompetent outside the library. Sure he's had a few accidents, but he's mostly skilled at his tasks, and its not like he's specialized, its general skills. We already know he can cook, clean, make home repairs and keep things categorized to an anal retentive's satisfaction.

I know it was all for the sake of the episode: to give genuine reason for applejack to want things back to status quo and make it plain for the targeted audience. Still, sucks for spike. He gets enough crap thrown at him without him doing it to himself.

Fluttershy's "I said NO!" before wrecking Rainbow Dash is a clear indication that she's in assertive mode. Just look at the sudden determination on her face before doing it. There's no way that's not intended to be assertive Fluttershy. It looks like something out of Putting Your Hoof Down, also written by Williams. "You push me out the door, I drop you to the floor."

Fluttershy only wrecked Rainbow because she was between her and the exit. Spike isn't that aggressive. He's also not as hard to escape from. At worst, he'd be like the paparazzi from Green Isn't Your Color, and even that's a stretch.

I don't think Spike would drive Fluttershy crazy. She'd say no until Spike gave up, and she'd get assertive if she had to.

This episode, among others, has shown that Spike is very tenacious. He wouldn't give up just from someone saying no, and he'd eventually come up with useful suggestions. He'd probably start doing stuff without her knowledge before giving up.

Spike would start whining about not being a noble dragon. Fluttershy would find a way to calm him down.

Like giving him a job to do? Any random job?

Look at the determined expression. Look at the breathing as she starts getting pumped. This is assertive Fluttershy about to rock.

That's cool, but irrelevant. Spike wouldn't press her like that, and wouldn't stop her from running. If she did pull something like that, it would just make both of them feel bad, and make Spike feel like he owes her even more. And Fluttershy would probably feel obligated to put up with him after that.

Just off the top of my head, he could offer to do her in town shopping, something that she doesn't particularly care for. She'd probably have him count animals or plants, the same kind of busywork that Applejack assigned, and something that he didn't screw up.

Alternatively, she could go for a back scratch after a day of dealing with Angel.

That didn't work when anyone else tried it, and Fluttershy isn't a particularly skilled orator. Spike's code says that he needs to pay her back, so he has to pay her back. This wasn't about perceived nobility, it was about Spike needing to repay a debt that he owed. He doesn't care if she thinks he's still noble or not, it is something that he has to do because that is what he believes in.

Seriously, why do you think that Fluttershy would be able to talk him down when no one else could? She's easily the worst talker, and has no special skill with persuasion.

.... How is that situation vaguely similar? Fluttershy used The Stare on him because he was threatening her friends, and got him to leave while he was still reeling, rather than actually talking him down. Spike isn't threatening her friends, and he's actually trying to help her. If anything, Spike would be putting the guilt trip on her.

She did use The Stare on him while scolding him, but not while calming him down afterwards. Recall that she did get him to stop crying before he left, and she did it just by talking to him. Don't dismiss her abilities. Spike putting the guilt trip on her might work (it usually works when Rainbow Dash does it), but she might respond by talking to him and telling him he's still a noble dragon and whatever else he'd need to hear. She is good at that.

What Spike needs to hear is that she's let him help her. The red adult was, well, kinda dim, and less mature than Spike. Fluttershy was able to comfort him like he was a wild animal because he was acting like a wild animal,* and being good with animals is her talent. That wouldn't work with Spike, who actually has some reasoning behind his actions beyond losing his temper or being to lazy to move. She wasn't even able to control the crusaders, who are far younger and less mature than Spike.

*Dragons have a sad sad habit of living down to Equestrian stereotypes about them.

While there were some funny jokes and interpersonal relations (Rainbow Dash is best sitcom neighbor), I think it made tow major missteps. I think briefly noting that he was being overzealous or perhaps he was still shaken up by the attack would have helped make him seem less OOC. Likewise, it would have been better if instead of Twilight making Dragon Code seem like a known thing, call it out as something of Spike's own creation.

That's how I felt when I saw this, I was like "Wow the plot is really lame!"

But I said that while laughing my ass off because it really had some great gags. The horrible fake timberwolf was hysterical.

Yeah, what this episode lacked in plot it made up for in hilarity.

I really like the way Rarity was handled. Her friends often think she's ridiculous, but here she gets to show that being dramatic is an actual skill. We may not have gotten to see far into her acting lessons, but we did get to see her perform, and she proved that she knows what she's talking about. She was great. And she was so proud of herself for it. icon-fire.gif

This episode is supposed to take place after Just for Sidekicks, which actually explains some stuff. Namely, after realizing just what a heel he was in Just, he decided to try to get his act together, and drew up a Noble Dragon Code that he would try to live up to. But since he wrote it up in response to his greedy actions, he went way overboard in the other direction.

Forgot about the rearranged episodes. That actually makes a ton of sense.
