@  TheMightyMol... : (21 September 2020 - 06:01 PM)

Has wave 3 actually reached anywhere yet?

@  Maximus Ambus : (21 September 2020 - 04:40 PM)

A few more Bearimy's for Earthrise wave 3 to reach the UK

@  Spiritofeigh... : (20 September 2020 - 05:07 PM)

Cheers pal.

@  wonko the sane? : (20 September 2020 - 04:42 PM)

Welcome aboard!

@  Spiritofeigh... : (20 September 2020 - 04:38 PM)

Hey, new to the boards

@  RichardT1977 : (20 September 2020 - 02:29 PM)

I had an idea for a Spiral Zone/Go-Busters crossover fanfic...

@  wonko the sane? : (19 September 2020 - 06:35 PM)

I loved what was there, and think it's pretty ripe for "renegades" style reboot.

@  Rycochet : (19 September 2020 - 03:13 PM)

It's a shame as I loved Spiral Zone, and the design from the Japanese Toyline of the same name are fantastic, I adore the monowheel motorbike.

@  Rycochet : (19 September 2020 - 03:12 PM)

Hasbro doesn't seem to have any interest in doing anything with the TV show, haven't greenlit any attempt to rerelease it, and there have been approaches, so I think it may be aother one of Tonka's legal carcrashes where everyone involved owns a piece and it's not really worth anyone sticking their neck out to claim ownership.

@  Steevy Maximus : (19 September 2020 - 01:47 PM)

I feel that homages and references would be a fun way to expand the GI Joe brand, and give a little love to lines that are unlikely to be acknowledged beyond such capacity.

@  Steevy Maximus : (19 September 2020 - 01:47 PM)

I was under the impression that Bandai was more the character design aspects, not story or characters.

@  Rycochet : (19 September 2020 - 12:55 PM)

Also isn't it in rights limbo, given how it's loosely based on concepts from a BanDai series much like GoBots?

@  Rycochet : (19 September 2020 - 12:52 PM)

We don't need a Spiral Zone reboot, in a decade or so we'll be living it.

@  wonko the sane? : (19 September 2020 - 12:49 PM)

Yeah, but it would fundamentally change the base premise of both gijoe and spiral zone. It's either not the world spanning threat it was, or the zone riders are backed up by a competent force. Either way, you compromise the context of both.

@  Steevy Maximus : (19 September 2020 - 12:19 PM)

Akin to what was done with Matt Tracker in 2008.

@  Steevy Maximus : (19 September 2020 - 12:18 PM)

Again, not a PURE transplant, but an integration of ideas and concepts into the world of GI Joe.

@  Steevy Maximus : (19 September 2020 - 12:18 PM)

@Wonko The Cobra Overlord, with help from Dr. Mindbender and Cesspool, develops machines capable of generating a mind-controlling fog. GI Joe stalwarts Flint, Airtight, Lifeline, and Psyche-Out are joined by Colonal Courage to infiltrate these zones and disable the machines. Figures would sport hostile environment suits (Eco warriors cross with Spiral Zone) and make new versions of the mono-wheel vehicles.

@  Maximus Ambus : (19 September 2020 - 09:39 AM)

Hasbroverse.2 with bought properties: Bravestarr, Ulysses 31, Galaxy Rangers, Shadow Raiders, Manta Force, Jayce and the Wheeled Warriors, Mighty Orbots, Jem and Bigfoot and the Muscle Machines. Seamless.

@  wonko the sane? : (19 September 2020 - 08:32 AM)

While acknoledging spiral zone would be pretty boss, I doubt they could actively integrate it into anything else: given the scale of the villains deeds.

@  Steevy Maximus : (19 September 2020 - 08:03 AM)

COPS, Spiral Zone, Shadow Strikers, Action Man, Centurions, MegaForce. They wouldn’t replicate the old lines, but simply acknowledging their existence would be nifty.

@  Steevy Maximus : (19 September 2020 - 08:01 AM)

I would love to see GI Joe become something of a “celebration of action figures”. Hasbro has SO MANY old action figure properties, and many could slot into the GI Joe umbrella with relative ease.

@  Otaku : (19 September 2020 - 12:04 AM)

G.I. Joe, CyberCOPS, and M.A.S.K. all seem like something that would work from Animated or Prime, though CyberCOPS might have been a bit trickier from Prime.

@  Sabrblade : (18 September 2020 - 11:02 PM)

Rik Alvarez originally wanted the last episode of Prime to spinoff into a new MASK reboot.

@  Otaku : (18 September 2020 - 08:19 PM)

The failed Hasbroverse reminds me how so many things could have been spun off from Transformers: Animated and (after that) Transformers: Prime.

@  ▲ndrusi : (18 September 2020 - 12:43 PM)

Requiem of the Wreckers was post-Revolution, but it was also, you know, a single issue.

@  NotVeryKnightly : (18 September 2020 - 11:06 AM)

But Roche didn't have a series to keep out from the crossovers since Sins of the Wreckers was before Revolution.

@  NotVeryKnightly : (18 September 2020 - 11:01 AM)

Oh wait, that post said Roche, not Barber.

@  Rycochet : (18 September 2020 - 10:46 AM)

And then seemed surprised nobody particlarly wanted it.

@  NotVeryKnightly : (18 September 2020 - 10:25 AM)

Wasn't Barber among the editorial guys that pushed for Hasbroverse?

@  Maximus Ambus : (18 September 2020 - 10:19 AM)

He did it possibly due to 616 Spider-Mans marriage reset between Civil War and Secret Invasion.

@  ▲ndrusi : (18 September 2020 - 09:20 AM)

Bendis kept a tight leash on Ultimate Spider-Man because it was mostly set far away from Earth?

@  -LittleAutob... : (18 September 2020 - 08:49 AM)

I'm learning so much-

@  Maruten : (18 September 2020 - 04:21 AM)

At its worst it was better than MASK, sure.

@  Maximus Ambus : (18 September 2020 - 02:15 AM)

At it's worst it still stomped all over the failed Hasbroverse. Roberts and Roche kept their respective series well out of that one for the same reasons Bendis kept a tight leash on Ultimate Spider-Man when Loeb and Miller wanted greater control for Ultimatum.

@  Maruten : (17 September 2020 - 06:37 PM)

That's so accurate it's physically painful.

@  Rycochet : (17 September 2020 - 02:05 PM)

The Red Dwarf of Transformers? An interesting, innovative and genuinely funny series that descended into a self referential mess of cliches that continues long after it should have been put out to pasture and rendered nerly everyone thoroughly unlikeable? That seems about right.

@  Bass X0 : (17 September 2020 - 01:59 PM)

MTMTE and Lost Light are the Red Dwarf of Transformers stories, as opposed to the others which are more like Star Wars and Star Trek.

@  Kalidor : (17 September 2020 - 01:37 PM)

Anyone in CONUS want a Skylynx for $100 shipped?

@  Maximus Ambus : (17 September 2020 - 01:34 PM)

Maybe an acquired taste in that's in that it's from a fan raised on the UK run where Transformers wasn't taken so seriously in many stories, especially some Earthforce standalones.

@  Paladin : (17 September 2020 - 09:47 AM)

so, terrible?

@  ▲ndrusi : (17 September 2020 - 09:26 AM)

Yeah I think at that point Lost Light is just the '86 movie without the soundtrack.

@  NotVeryKnightly : (17 September 2020 - 02:28 AM)

So, exctly what Triangleman just said.

@  Bass X0 : (17 September 2020 - 12:36 AM)

A few of the same characters.

@  ▲ndrusi : (17 September 2020 - 12:07 AM)

Now having actually read Galaxies #10, I don't actually see what it has in common with Lost Light at all besides featuring Ultra Magnus, Chromedome, and a spaceship.

@  ▲ndrusi : (16 September 2020 - 05:33 PM)

So, it's exactly like Lost Light, then.

@  Bass X0 : (16 September 2020 - 01:52 PM)

What if Lost Light was stripped bare of its charm and humor? Galaxies #10 is the answer.

@  ▲ndrusi : (16 September 2020 - 01:49 PM)

I didn't mean "*exactly* 15 years ago and no other time."

@  NotVeryKnightly : (16 September 2020 - 12:27 AM)

I mean, the comment was about a linewide gimmick of 15 years ago, not a gimmick only present in a minority of toys from that year.

@  Maximus Ambus : (16 September 2020 - 12:14 AM)

I'd like a western take on the UT for it's twentieth, like a annual CG or anime movie on Netflix that is a condensed retelling similar to the film Macross/Robotech: Do You Remember Love.

Whoops, forgot about the ramp, have to silicon that in place, and it'll take 48hrs to dry completely.

That looks cool, might work for the basking area, I'll have to look into how water exposure might affect it. Don't want it turning into mud.

Pond's been running for nearly 24hrs, holding up ok so far. I looked into the excavator clay, it's basically clay and sand, so it won't hold up to repeated water exposure. We'll look into getting large rocks or such.

Sooooo close. We got a single pavement stone from Home Depot. It was just a bit too big, so it got sledgehammered into smaller pieces (note, this is not the final configuration, they got shuffled around after I took that pic)

We wanted to get an aquarium heater cover. I looked last week, but all the ones I could find had to be shipped from overseas and would take too long. We poked around a few small local shops today, no dice. TMM had the idea to just get some PVC pipe and drill some holes in. It took awhile, but you can see it in the water in the next pic. Had to file down the shavings so they don't come off in the water.

I'm a bit worried about the area circled in red. It's a small section, but it's dipping down and away, probably b/c the platform isn't completely underneath the lip in that area. I'm not sure if it's anything to be worried about or not. I'm so tired of messing with this tank, I hope it's not going to be a problem.

Pretty much. :D The area that was curving up/away a little-we found that the reinforcing plank we put in is slightly askew, so the platform isn't entirely level in that one spot. To fix it we'd have to drain the pond again... So we said screw it. We'll keep an eye on it and her old tank handy just in case. I'll post pics later.

So, anyone remember this? Well, I've been working on him again. Still not entirely sure about the chest design, and I should've made the hammer head bigger, but otherwise I like how he's turning out thus far.

Name: Shieldwall
Faction: Autobot
Function: Defensive Warfare
Alt Mode: Tractor-trailer
Motto: "None shall pass."

Bio:
(Still working on this.....)

Powers and Abilities:
Enormously strong and heavily armored. In robot mode, wields a massive gravity hammer that creates powerful shockwaves on impact, cracking the land and crushing enemy armor. Also equipped with a highly durable tower shield and shoulder-mounted mortar cannons. In vehicle mode, can carry heavy loads with no loss of speed. Skilled in defensive tactics and an able small squad commander.

Weaknesses:
Consumes fuel at a high rate. Physically slow and not very agile; relies entirely on his armor and shield for protection. His defensive mindset can make him slow to seize opportunities in battle.

This was soon after we put her in the pond. We first placed her on the basking area. She stayed still for a few moments, looking at us like "WTF?!", then panicked and fell off the side into the water. She spent the next few days exploring. She likes hanging off the edge of the shallow end and poking into the deep end. It's funny when she rests in the shallow end, with just the top of her head poking out like a little crocodile.

About 4 days later. She kicked off the heater cover and was nipping at the cord, so we had to move the heater to an upright position. Maybe the PVC pipe was too thick to dispense the heat well. She also bit off (but didn't eat) the silicone that was holding the ramp at the bottom. TMM wedged a rock in there. Turtle likes to hide under the ramp, which pushes it upwards since she's too fat to fit under it normally.

The ramp is held on the top by Aquarium Epoxy. This stuff is amazing. It's like dough at first, once you knead it into a uniform color you have 2 minutes to get it where you want. It starts hardening in minutes and fully cures in 24hrs underwater, or 48 out of water. It's actually pretty damn hard after a few minutes, just don't go poking at it with sharp tools. Yesterday, the turtle was finally trying to climb the ramp, but couldn't quite make it. I used more epoxy to make some grips for her yesterday, and this is what greeted me this morning:

I didn't want to feed her since she'd have to go back into the water for that. She has not budged for at least 2 hrs.

She still hasn't moved. Even when we walk by, she just pulls her head in a little, then goes right back to ignoring us.
