Windcharger I'd pair with MP20+ for the new "in memorandum" movie subline ...
Whoa, how did you post the encoding of the image? I thought it was like old-school GeoCities ASCII art there for a second.
Fixed. I know, right?
The ghosts of and Wind' and Jackie now exist as pages and pages of random code.
It's f*cking tragic for those guys ...
I think Powerglide and Seaspray (and the other S2 Minibots) will never come.
I would agree that someone like Brawn, who I remember as being all over the cartoon and even has an on-screen death, ought to be important enough to get made. But I'd put his importance ahead of a number of S2 characters we already have, so that really affects my speculations on whether any Minibots are on the drawing board.
Now that's interesting: there are six Minibots and six Diaclone carbots left. Could Takara be planning just what you suggest, a Minibot pack-in with the six remaining carbots? Some of these guys are quite inexplicably delayed, after all...
Hold up Whoadie,
Season 2 minibot presences> season 1 - bee Minibot presences. Brawn is known for being an ass, Huffer a whiner, cliffjumper a hot head, Gears a grump and Windcharger....who know, but point is thats all we know season 2 bots got more story time and involvement in the plot. Season 1 bots have the advantage of being on the original ark crew and their season 3 repaints but the season 2 bots were more important and developed( except bee). Season 2 bots just dont have the character repaints.
Gears had his own episode in season two. Cliffjumper was a pretty significant character to me. Probably because he was voiced by Kasey Casem. Windcharger probably is the least developed season one original Ark cast member outside of Hauler and the now infamous random seekers Sunstorm, Hot Link, Bitstream, and Nacelle. I believe that he had some magnetic powers if I remember correctly.
It's hard for me to argue with this.
Please correct me if I'm wrong, but I'm sure I read somewhere that Seasons 1 and 2 are seen as the same thing -i.e. just one large season before the Movie was made.
Personally, I'm down with whatever G1 they throw at us, especially 'new' G1/diaclone. And select others... I'm getting Shadow Panther due to his connections with Ravage, and I'll be down for a Tarantulas, but not Primal or the other Beast Wars stuff thats being done.
I'd also love an MP Drift.
Probably be down for a bit of speculation for a Wheelie, as we've already got Hot Rod, Grimlock and Ultra Magnus, amd Rodimus Prime.
Legend. Plus, he was right. You DON'T come out of an up-tempo record to do a piece about a dog dying ...
Since the line didn't start in some markets until 1985,
It may sometimes have caused S1 and S2 toys and episodes to be released/broadcast in quick succession .
Windcharger was antsy,It didn't really stand out too much in the show but if you pay close attention you can tell.
Antsy, gnarly, huffy, whiney, windy, assy, grumpy ...
Hmmm, this rings a bell somehow...
Prime and the seven mini-bots.
A story of betrayal and love. Prime's step-father, the Emperor of Destruction, one day asks his magic mirror 'Who is the most powerful in all the universe?'. Instead of proclaiming him, as usual, the mirror replies that Prime will surpass him soon.
Out of fear and jealousy the Emperor of Destruction orders his huntsman, Predaking, to destroy Prime.
Imressed by Prime's prowess and honour Predaking lets Prime escape.
Hah, sorry, man. But I really think if it wasn't a toy from the pre-Transformers era, and it isn't a headliner character, it's got no shot at becoming a Masterpiece.
Looks like they will never finish the whole "Hoist goes to Hollywood" motif.
They'll finish the "Master Builders" motif though.
That's funny, I don't think it has anything of George Forbes' meltdown when he was going to go Stone Cold on Carl Monday, who was like the investigative reporter in Cleveland
Woah. That was a really different countdown.
CJ was a bit bipolar.
I mean, one minute he's accusing Mirage of being a spy. The next minute, he's throwing himself ontop of Mirage and rolling around wirh him on the floor.
Yeah, I don't know how much I buy into this idea... certainly it was "released" as one season in Japan, but even taking aside the fact that a whole new cast seems to suddenly appear out of nowhere, there's a pretty distinct shift between the tone of season one and season two that really separates the two... there are even a couple of episodes from season two that don't seem to belong - I can't remember offhand the names of the episodes but when you watch them, given that none of the newer characters were featured and the plots were a little more serious, you can tell they don't really "belong"... I can only asssume that the Japanese, likewise, still see a difference between the earlier, original crew episodes and the somewhat goofier season two ones.
Separate names with a comma.
