    Seemingly, yeah. The Netflix show will presumably cover dimension-hopping to include the cast of the show getting a glimpse of Prime dying in the movie.
    At least, that’s what some theorists on the forum think.

    One note, multiversal singularities are no longer a canon thing as of funpubs shrouding storyline where the universes were definitively made separate. This is why the 13 has a different roster depending on the universe. So there is no longer only 1 unicron and primus but a separate one for each universe

    Thats why I added that bit at the end. I always hated that retcon, because I feel it was Funpub trying to “fix” one of the best things they helped establish. Personally, I wish it would be retconned back again because it adds much more weight to the whole origin story.

    But when it came to Funpub anyways... some of their fiction was good, some of it... not so good. The Botcon 2016 retcon comic was just the dumbest thing ever.

    also EYYYYYYYY! you changed your name.

    Botcon 2016 was garbage, 2006 was a much better prequel

    personally I liked the singularities, but it did tend to cause problems, like shattered glass alpha trion being evil when he was supposed to be the same guy as g1. And even in marvel g1, hook, line and sinker make it clear that each universe has its own unicron

    and yep, changed it about 2 weeks ago

    All my “No” on that one personally. I usually am not a fan of FunPub’s fiction, but the “Multiversal Singularity” thing was definitely up there as one of their worst story ideas (That and the entirety of the fiction surrounding Predacus). It didn’t make any sense at all but far worse of all it was extremely restricting when it came to story-telling. Retconning the hell out of existence was a great choice. Even though, let’s be 100% honest, no writers except FunPub’s gave a slightest shit about it. It mostly was retconned because every writer worth a damn wasn’t considering it in their story-telling, especially not the more mainstream Transformers comics, so FunPub had to backtrack and retcon it in order to try and help their own stories line up more with the rest of TF canon.

    Yeah, I know it would only go on to be ignored by future writers, but I felt like it could have added more weight and originality to the Transformers Genesis. Oh well.

    Really? Didn’t realize it until this morning. Funny you go from a Tiger to a Wolf.
    To each their own.

    It occurred to me this morning that this Prime would display well with some Earthrise Quintesson Judges for a "Dark Awakening" shelf! The sculpt is perfect and I don't mind the color! He should have been desaturated in the episode to match the movie anyway!

    Kinda expensive for a plastic toy, wish it had the same quality like the g1 reissue then it'd be good

    Well, I'm 30s so if gotta make a decision between this one and g1 , I'd choose g1 and it can be a brick unarticulated but I like the quality, details and diecast style, the other one is pure plastic( judged from my own perspective)
