@  wlg3 : (28 April 2017 - 01:15 AM)

I really enjoy the creative sub forums of TFW, though, like their kitbash and fan art forums. The creative forums have lots of talented, friendly people and is an active, supportive community.

@  wlg3 : (28 April 2017 - 01:13 AM)

Gotta agree with Evac... TFW has a lot of cool, talented people, but they're overwhelmingly outnumbered by unbearable neckbeards

@  LordGigaIce : (27 April 2017 - 10:20 PM)

I do enjoy the TFW podcast. and that subforum's usually very civil. It's the best place to actually talk about TFers there :D also the Radicons forum is ok if you just like looking at kitbash pr0n

@  Evac : (27 April 2017 - 10:18 PM)

There's some cool people on the site, thankfully. It's just the morons tend to outnumber them... Which is generally the rule on most forums thanks to the GIFT.

@  Evac : (27 April 2017 - 10:17 PM)

In all honesty, the better parts of the site are the non-TF parts.

@  LordGigaIce : (27 April 2017 - 10:13 PM)

yeah, and their love of 3p is just...i don't get it.

@  Noideaforaname : (27 April 2017 - 10:03 PM)

TFW can be... literal with the rules sometimes. Like, a discussion about favorite human characters gets LOCKED if you mention Agent Fowler because "all Prime discussion belongs in the RiD forums".

@  LordGigaIce : (27 April 2017 - 09:48 PM)

Also, as far as TFW's No Politics goes...it's nice in theory but then you end up with the current IDW stories that lean HEAVILY into politics and religion. I've had more than a few lengthy posts exploring the parallels between the IDW Decepticon movement and various real world socialist movements deleted because it was technically "politics." So hug 'em. I really only visit there these days to poke around the podcast subforum.

@  LordGigaIce : (27 April 2017 - 09:45 PM)

My person canon is that the Quintessons created Cybertron as a factory to make the TFers as mechs, but they became self aware and they revolted. then Cybertronian society began to develop and the events of the revolt became mythologised as the stories of the Knights of Cyberton, the Thirteen, etc...real events that became the basis for religion, essentially.

@  Rycochet : (27 April 2017 - 06:49 PM)

Transformers believe they were created by <X>, others believe they were created by <Y> and/or <Z>. There are lots of theories, disagreements but ultimately nobody knows for sure.

@  Noideaforaname : (27 April 2017 - 05:11 PM)

Squid robits build machines. Machines decide they had enough of that and kicked the squid robits off the planet. Everything's pretty chill for a while until machines get mad for dumb reasons and break the planet. THE END

@  Bass X0 : (27 April 2017 - 04:22 PM)

Primus created Cybertron and The Thirteen. Then later, the Quintessons come to the planet they call Seibertron and use Primus' power; the plasma energy chamber to forge military robots Destrons and consumer robots Cybertrons. The Cybertrons and Destrons rise up and drive the Quintessons away but are unable to live in peace with each other. And so the Cybertron population become the Autobot army and the Destrons become Decepticons, with the Autobots renaming their planet Cybertron. Far far later still, bacteria that was present on the asteroid Primus imprisoned himself within has evolved into organic life within Cybertron...

@  Evac : (27 April 2017 - 03:35 PM)

But aside from the ending Trent and Siph made for them at FunPub, the 3H Wreckers comics kinda sucked.

@  Evac : (27 April 2017 - 03:34 PM)

That's what the 3H Wreckers comics kind of did, actually.

@  wonko the sane? : (27 April 2017 - 03:30 PM)

So, what? The maker of the makers kinda thing?

@  Bass X0 : (27 April 2017 - 02:55 PM)

My fanon is both the Quintesson and Primus origins. They're compatible.

@  Rycochet : (27 April 2017 - 02:37 PM)

I prefer the profile book/movie interpretation of the Quintessons, a race whose entire purpose is to capture and execute those who escape Unicron.

@  Noideaforaname : (27 April 2017 - 02:03 PM)

I like the Quintesson origin partly because it's a twist on the robot revolution cliche, partly because of the irony of a people uniting against their own creators just to fall into endless civil war, and mostly because i just really like the Quintessons themselves.

@  Diecast : (27 April 2017 - 12:03 PM)

I preferred the Primus origin until it became the more common origin, fiction wise.

@  ▲ndrusi : (27 April 2017 - 11:08 AM)

Since the analogy to humans isn't perfect, it could also be interpreted as closer to "maternity ward."

@  Locoman : (27 April 2017 - 11:02 AM)

I think the most unfortunately named Transformer in their society would probably be Hot Spot, which is like having a human named "Placenta."

@  Locoman : (27 April 2017 - 11:02 AM)

Confusing, I bet.

So my girlfriend bought the PS2 Transformers game cuz she loves PS2 games and I had never played it and really wanted to. And after playing it for a bit I've been in a total Armada mood so I was digging out my fav minicons, and more importantly this bot:

iXkNYXE.jpg

Bendy Prime is still one of my all time fav Transformers, it's pretty neat even by today's standards but also I just have huge nostalgia for it tbh.
And he just looks cool :3

uI7BkCG.jpg

I have a couple copies of this mold (two different Optimus variants and two of Nemesis) and this is one I customized a little: I cut down the bumps on the front his upper thighs so his legs can move forward more w/o stressing his hip joints, silver sharpied his hands and his grill (covering all the excessive amount of black they sprayed all over it lol), cut down the wheel support struts that keep him from transforming to truck mode correctly, and put an Autobot symbol on his truck hood! (this is the earlier "silver light" variant that doesn't have a tampoed symbol)

deQ9XAk.jpg

Now I really want a Voyager Armada Optimus homage thats as cool as this, and preferable with this colorscheme, but also with a headsculpt as nice and pointy as the leader class Armada Op! The head on the deluxe one has its charms, but I feel like the bigger one has nicer proportions and nice side antennas.

But yeah, now I want him to run around the world looking for minicons in the jungle and the arctic and so on!

I dunno 'bout that - I went back and tried to play it after WfC came out and it felt like slogging through mud. It certainly was the best TF game up to that point, though. 

 

Nice choice on the FP rifles for Optimus, Kira. Always thought those were pretty cool.

I've played both WFC and FOC tons and there are things I still like so much better about the PS2 game. I feel like it does a better job of giving huge environments to actually drive in and just explore, and it helps that not everything dark muddy metal too lol. And personally I like the Armada game's aesthetics much more than the angry pointy hunched over blocks of robot in WFC/FOC!
But yeah in other ways it's very dated, but honestly I think it looks and plays better than I expected a PS2 title to play! (omg don't tell my gf I just insulted the ps2 she'll kill me lmao)

And thanks!
I love those guns, they look cool with almost and figure and have a lot of play value. And some figures can hold the rifle mode two handed thanks to the front gun's handle! The one Optimus borrowed is usually being wielded by my Generations Springer

I too fondly remember playing the PS2 game some few years back, and I also echo the resultant resurgence of love for Armada. For about the next month I was hitting all the retro shops I knew and looking for more mini-cons. It reminded me that for all the dirt that gets kicked at the Unicron Trilogy (and some of it is deserved), it had some real gems.

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.
