The Reclusive Semi-Lurker
Exciting!, All I'm waiting for is the reveal of Megatron's vehicle form.
It's been fine, Just waiting for TF5. The wait is killing lol.
Hey, Bound, Been while.
I hope you had a great Christmas!
I'm glad you and others like that sequence of events I came up with for the continuity of the films
Also, he never enjoys doing what he needs he to do to save the day. You never see him laugh or smile about it. And yeah, I wish we saw more of what's going on his head, too, but that's also why I like AOE a lot...we actually got to see a lot of character moments from him. He was rightfully pissed about the events transpiring.
I agree. AOE Optimus is one of the most interesting portrayals of the character ever. It's also easy for members of a species of 7 billion writing on a computer screen to complain about him being too violent, but he is a member of a critically endangered species trying to protect both his Autobots and human allies under less than ideal conditions. He's not dealing with energon thieves or swindlers, but genocidal tyrants, backstabbers, and all sorts of types that want him and his friends destroyed. He also never harms any innocents, whether Autobot or human or repentant Decepticons (Jetfire, Wheelie, etc). He even restrains Hound from harming Josh at KSI's headquarters.
Thanks for the friend request. I'm glad to see someone else who likes Movie Prime.
Hello there. Just added you as a friend.
Thanks for the help. :)
Hey. Could you help me decide on something for my optimus? I finally know what I want to do with him, but would like to speak with someone so I can iron out the details.
Would you mind if I use parts of my idea for your series idea for my own series idea? Wow that sentence was confusing to write.
Edit: never mind, I was asking about the earth native autobot idea but I decided upon something else.
for sure. they need lots of exposure with a cast of 49 robot characters.
that's actually kind of what i'm doing in my adaptation of the movies. not really lennox' family though, lennox and epps are actually Marines and the story focuses on three elements: the robots, their work with epps and lennox's platoon, and sam's friendshipnwith hot rod.
I had no idea about that jellyfish.
I learnt about this specific example recently, but it's actually a common tactic amongst distressed prey animals to attempt to summon bigger predators to kill their attackers.
In the pitch black deep sea, if a dinoflagellate is attacked by a predator, it will release bright lights. In the utter darkness, a lovely light display is practically an open invitation for opportunistic hunters, preferably ones big enough to kill the dinoflagellate's attacker. The original predator has a choice; either abandon the prey and make a run for it, or finish it off and risk being slaughtered by anything attracted by the lightshow.
It's very fascinating, the tricks animals will use to ensure victory one way or another :D
I finished Soundwave's crew with his pets and partner. I just need a little more thought before I actually go back and change his background.
If you haven't taken a look yet, Rumble and Frenzy are up with a twist.
I'll still need to work out the minor details, but I think I might have an actual plot for my story universe. :D Thought it'd never happen. The basic hook would be that it is Optimus' battle campaign against the Decepticons across space; a more 'SW: clone wars' type adventure. I'm thinking each "season" would focus on Optimus aiding the war on a different planet. That means that while he has a small static crew, many other characters will be explored as citizens, soldiers, and otherwise allies from these various worlds. Currently debating whether to start on earth, or do the 'humans in space' angle and end it all on earth.
By the way, have you seen my three latest character designs?
If you haven't seen it yet, I'd check out Knightfallbu Ironhide1706 in the fanfic section. He's only at the beginning so far, but the writing's very good and his universe seems to me to have many of the things you say you look for in a series.
Hey, I finally finished that Megatron redesign I kept planning on. He also has a real bio now. Soundwave will be getting one as soon as I decide what his personality/ past should be.
Soundwave and Ironhide had minor revisions as well. Just wasn't happy with some of the little things.
