i was just wondering if u guys consider it kibble if it is screen accurate
I said no but, I'm sorta in between.
yea same here. thats why im asking lol
Depends what you mean. Are we talking Big Convoy kibble or a piece here and there like on Mudflap and Skids?
lets take beast wars metals rampage.
hes a kibbly mess. but all his kibble was in the show. is it kibble?
I hate the term kibble
I still consider it kibble if it is show accurate though when it is show accurate it usually dosen't bother me as much
But you have to consider that w/o the extra kibble on some characters, it would make a lot of characters pretty generic. I know I like G1 Jazz's and Prowl's door wings and it helps to distinguish them.
For BW Rampage, it'll be kinda hard to hide those huge crab claws. So i assume the alternative would be to make them detachable or a weapon like Transmetal Rattrap (which would suck either way for rampage).
So the big question(s) is, "When is kibble appropriate on a figure? Or should the figure be a parts-former for the sake of not having any kibble whatsoever?"
Kibble is any piece on a Transformer that is used in one mode but not in another. Even if it IS show accurate, the pieces are still kibble since on both incarnations they had nowhere else to go during Transformation.
Yeah, kibble is just a noun that we place onto these parts. No judgment comes with this noun. It's up to us to decide if kibble is good, bad, etc.
Like it or not, stuff like G1 Starscream's wings and Sideburn's car parts are all kibble.
A design can have excess kibble whether it's a toy or not.
I only really consider kibble a problem when it gets in the way and makes the design more awkward or off balance. It's less of a problem when it can be used in a decorative way to make the design more distinctive. In some cases it really enhances the design.
This. Also, there's no option for "it's kibble either way" in the poll, also.
im not sure either ;p but i voted no.. coz as long as a figure is screen accurate, im fine with it
Kibble is kibble, regardless if it's screen accurate or not.
RotF Mixmaster and Long Haul both have what we would consider big chunks of kibble hanging off of their arms *as do the toys* so kibble is kibble (it's also dog food isn't it?).
While we're on the subject, I like most kibble, especially car kibble (car doors as wings for example, love it) but it's kibble that comes from shell-formers like HA Sideswipe, or big backpacks like Universe Cheetor, that's just unacceptable.
Yes. It doesn't matter if it's supposed to be there, based on the animation/CGI model, if a component on the toy fits the definition of kibble, then it counts.
That would be the same answer as "yes" anyway.
Separate names with a comma.
