    That's a great way to make a Cybertronian near invincible. They're already so hard to kill and are capable of immense destruction. Y'know a lot of those PotP Prime powers were a lot like stand powers.
    Hmm...Overlord reminds me a lot of Dio.

    Aren't Stand Arrows' mutagenic properties due to an alien virus in them or something? That would be unlikely to work on an inorganic lifeform like a Transformer.

    ...But if they did, Jazz and Blaster would be the only ones worth giving them to. I don't believe Soundwave knows anything about music and only listens to CSPAN transcripts.

    With TFs having all sort of interesting weapons, I wonder if there's one that uses auto-propelled Funnels (like the fin funnels equipped on the Nu Gundam or Strike Freedom Gundam) to fight against enemies.

    If Bumblebee who is supposed to be an Autobot have a "Decepticon Red-eye" emergency mode like in the Bumblebee movie, I wonder if other Autobots like Optimus Prime can also activates it in emergency combat situation.

    I'm annoyed that MFT named their Omega Supreme Huge Dragon. The character does not transform into a dragon! :mad:

    I like to think that Transformers have some control over the 'color expression' of their eyes and when they're angry they go 'red rage red'

    The Decepticons and their red-optic army? Always angry. Always always pissed off to even be there.

    Random thought:

    Armada Starscream should have been G1 Starscream’s reformatted form in the G1 cartoon. He could even have his golden crown that would fit into jet mode due to the nature of the transformation. Bigger body, more menacing to rival Galvatron... behold: Starking

    I met a TF fan in the toy aisle who was looking for G1 Repros and was looking to sell a G1 Optimus. He was an older guy and I ended up referring him to tfw.

    Hasbro owns Battleship, Hastak owns transformers, so I wonder how good a boatformers line would come out. Wouldn't even need them to be directly lifted from any official navy vessel. Could make a series where giant transforming battleships are made for space so they can fight aliens or something, maybe throw in some star trek "space, the final frontier" elements.

    So in AoE, Drift is a Bugatti Veyron- a car that is unable to drift.

    I was watching "The 40 Year Old Virgin" this morning, and noticed that Andy (played by Steve Carrell) had beast wars Heinrad, and what looked like a mistransformed alternators Wheeljack in the background when he was trying to call his almost-girlfriend Trish.

    I've gotten over it a little bit since it's so entrenched at this rate.

    But I really don't like 'optical color coding'. I know it's a good ref for 'who's who' if you're new but that's the whole point of faction sigils!

    I adore the Marvel comics, Beast Era, Car Robots, and the Unicron Trilogy, because any Transformer, Autobot or Decepticon, Maximal or Predacon, could have red, blue, white, yellow, purple, green, orange, or even black optics. The eye color was a decision based on what looked best on the character, not 'hrr drr blue for good red for bad just like star wars'


    How do we tell them apart? FACTION SIGILS. EVERY TRANFORMER SHOULD HAVE A PROMINENTLY FEATURED INSIGNIA.

    I also want every single Siege toy in a Marvel deco. Shit Hasbro, SELL ME A PACKAGE OF ALTERNATE HEADS.

    There has never been one single Marvel Colors Soundwave toy.

    I really wish Prime had done a continuation of the vampire Airachnid/Insecticons storyline.

    So do I. I would have settled for an RID continuation, like they did with Soundwave. I'm kind of surprised they never went for that.

    Completely agreed. RID01 Optimus' Amber eyes are gorgeous, and Optimus Primal looks no less heroic for his striking red optics.

    I think it's mostly the increased focus on Sunbow accuracy that's doing it for TFs. A Marvel colors line or just Marvel colors Selects figures would be neat if just for variety's sake.

    I've noticed that some of the more severe shelfwarmers within the past 2-3 years have been predominantly blue (TR Scourge and Blurr, TLK Slash, PotP Rippersnapper, SS Heli Dropkick, Siege Chromia).

    If Lugnut was in Beast Wars he should be called Slugnut.

    I get a little tired of white/red autobots and purple/gray decepticons. I wish they'd change up the color scheme a little more often.
