In my Marvel comic canon the second wave of special teams were handpicked active robots whose experience would theoretically make more stable combiners, the Combaticons came from Cybertron, the Protectobots were imprinted from crystals explaining both Onslauhghts ancestry and First Aid's experience.

How long until IDW puts out an Optimus Pride Month comic?

@  Cyoti : (18 June 2021 - 03:32 PM)

Even with B5, it didn't follow its original 5-year plan. Summaries from the supplementary materials for the scriptbooks demonstrates that was originally planned was very different from the actual product. Sinclair's actor's departure seemingly changed the show to the point that the stuff with the Vorlons/Shadows, the Minbari and the ending were all changed. Mapping out a show years in advance is difficult because of changing bts stuff like writers/actors leaving the show or suddenly having to retool because of ratings/execs. No plan survives intact especially in a chaotic environment of television production.

@  Rycochet : (18 June 2021 - 11:27 AM)

To be like Babylon 5, you need to cram a 2 season story arc into one because you fear being cancelled, then get further seasons you have no more material for. You also need a spinoff which the network heads don't want and do everything in their power to kill it while it's on air.

@  wonko the sane? : (18 June 2021 - 10:33 AM)

The required effort is probably why we don't have babylon 6; TNG.

@  Dekafox : (18 June 2021 - 10:23 AM)

Everyone wants to be like Babylon 5 but no one wants to put in the effort

@  Nevermore : (18 June 2021 - 09:36 AM)

And then, after five years of hosting their own official podcast where they would answer fan questions and always encouraged their audience to pay attention to the mysteries, after the show had ended, they claimed the show was never really about the mysteries, it was all about the characters.

@  Nevermore : (18 June 2021 - 09:34 AM)

What really bugs me with "Lost" is that the producers had willfully negotiated a set end date with the network halfway through season 3 (the show ended with season 6, as planned) specifically so they could plan out the plot for the remainder of the show. Then... the plot wasn't resolved properly.

@  tigerhawk : (18 June 2021 - 04:17 AM)

By then I had lost interest in arc TV shows, I followed a few and got the impression they were just making them up as they went along. Seemed to be a trend starting with new Galactica and Lost though in actuality began with The X Files and has become a trope called 'The Chris Carter Effect'.

@  Nevermore : (18 June 2021 - 02:12 AM)

I think it was season 3 part 1 specifically, since they had two separate plot "arcs" for season 3.

@  Nevermore : (18 June 2021 - 02:11 AM)

They threw everything in there, with no clear story structure, no clear stakes, and characters flip-flopping wherever the episode's writer needed them to go for their half-baked plot.

@  Nevermore : (18 June 2021 - 02:10 AM)

Season 3 was the worst, with a terrible meandering random events plot.

@  tigerhawk : (17 June 2021 - 11:59 PM)

'save the cheerleader' then in season 3 he tears her skull open, scans her power and she simply heals. They didn't think any of it through.

@  Shockwave 75 : (17 June 2021 - 07:04 PM)

Well, you know Hollywood; if something's popular, run it into the ground!

@  Cybersnark : (17 June 2021 - 04:40 PM)

And then there was the Writers' Strike, which isn't the show's fault.

@  Cybersnark : (17 June 2021 - 04:40 PM)

Yeah, Sylar should've been, if not killed off, at least left to rest.

@  Nevermore : (17 June 2021 - 03:43 PM)

It never truly recovered from that.

@  Nevermore : (17 June 2021 - 03:43 PM)

Season 1 was good until the finale.

@  Paladin : (17 June 2021 - 09:37 AM)

because it sucked.

@  tigerhawk : (17 June 2021 - 08:58 AM)

Heroes was cancelled twice.

@  Steevy Maximus : (16 June 2021 - 05:38 PM)

I think I've heard "I Need a Hero" more times this past week than I have in the past several years.

@  tigerhawk : (16 June 2021 - 12:41 PM)

Thanks to Earthrise I can recreate the end of Return of Optimus Prime part 1.

@  wonko the sane? : (16 June 2021 - 11:19 AM)

I wish they would do something like that here: but then it would become obvious in which provinces you're getting gouged.

@  Nevermore : (16 June 2021 - 10:42 AM)

Here in Germany, the price you see is the price you pay, tax included.

@  Nevermore : (16 June 2021 - 10:42 AM)

I always find it weaird hearing that stores in the US don't initially already taxes in their prices.

Not sure. I've been pretty close to a completionist since 1996 with both Hasbro and Takara product. There has been stuff I've skipped or sold off (mostly movie stuff) and older stuff (G1 and G2) I have had since the 1980's or 1990's.

I wouldn't be surprised if it's 10,000 or more. I've never counted. But it could be something as low as only a few thousand. It's hard to grasp, other than the tons of totes and boxes full of the stuff.

I have a lot, but I'm sure there are others who have more.

My current display is mostly focused on Masterpiece, Kara Kuri Kuro, and Unite Warriors. I also have currently have G1 1987 Target Masters, some Legends, and some WFC Trilogy stuff sprinkled throughout. Plus the Titans and Unicron are also on display.

I have some other display cases dedicated to Hot Toys, anime collectibles, and Diaclone.

When I get my last two Detolfs set up I will have to take some photos.

Regarding Seekers, I also skipped on a lot of Starscream figures (movie and non-G1) over the last 15 years. Only G1 and potentially those that would see one of his fellow Seekers from the same mold would typically get purchased. So as far as Seekers go, he's often omitted if the only one and not G1.

I was excited to find an old G2 Hero Megatron at the local Salvation Army.

 

Then I was disappointed when the checker told me "There were a ton of those things in here earlier.  Somebody just bought them a few hours ago."

 

Ah well, I get what I get and I don't throw a fit.  Curious as to what all there had been.

 

51185879413_07337056b6_b.jpg

 

 

I love the deco on this thing.  The "Saved by the Bell credits" paint job, the "Megatron Rules!", the skull-and-crossbones Decepticon symbol.  Its all just perfect.

 

 

Also, did I spend 10 minutes making a tiny pencil out of a toothpick for this gag even though no one would ever pay any attention to it?  Yes.  Yes I did.

At first I was barely paying any attention to the image and was reading the text and thought the image was of Siege Megatron and Shockwave but it took me a few takes to realise what I was reading and the image was about.

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.

I'm a bit nonplussed at how close the sizes seem to feel. Hope we eventually get a tank Megs that transforms that way.

 

I'll always find it neat that Hero Megatron is wearing Zubaz (the deco is more solidly visible on the wide leg panels so it doesn't look like an all-over thing).

For the low low price of a yellow toothpick and a few different color markers, anyone can make one at home.

That looks baddass! I've been keeping him in a similar configuration as a 'sword & board' setup and I love unfolding that 'shoulder' piece as a stabby extend-o-arm.
