    What's kinda sad is that in these few pages without being able to read the dialogue, this team has more personality than the Torchbearers/Victorion.

    That said, do they have a team name mentioned in the story? Trying to come up with something, and the best I have right now is either Cardacons or Decktrons.

    the four deluxes are known as the "4 guard", which sounds like "4 card"....but the boxset basically calls them "female destron team".......

    I think Sakamoto had a bit too much fun drawing that comic...

    And I continue to be back and forth on this set. I like the concept, but I already have Victorion, and do I really want to spend almost double the price I paid for her to get a Decepticon version that has one less bot?

    EDIT: I was incorrect with what the argument related to. The argument related to IDW Torchbearers, not their tech-specs.

    GET. THE. FUCK. OUT.

    So Pyra Magna, who leads her team with compassion and thoughtfulness alongside a tactical mindset able to turn obstacles to advantages, has less personality than Megatron's would-be wife who's only actual description is being really powerful.

    So Dustup, who has trouble relaxing and is willing to put herself in danger even if there's little chance she'll win, has less personality than Flowspade who is a ninja spy who used to work for Shockwave.

    So Jumpstream, who's loyalties to Pyra Magna have limits yet is willing to risk her spark to save her teammates, has less personality that Trickdiamond wh's really just a female Swindle.

    So Skyburst, who only fights when the cause is just and has concerns for her sibling Stormclash, has less personality than Lunaclub who is a hothead and a stalker of Starscream.

    So Stormclash, who is prone to violence and enjoys being ruthless in combat, has less personality that Moonspade who a medic that is the polar opposite of her twin in being calm and collected.

    The Torchbearers, who's mission is the discovery and presevation of Transformer relics, have less personality than a would-be queen and her four body guards?

    Seriously. Get the fuck out and never utter that again. You do not understand what it means to have personality. Personality is not about how varied your team's roster is. Personality is what makes you, an individual, unique. The Megatronia characters are barely characters. They have no goals, interests, or details that make them unique or stand out. Not even creative spins on their base characters. To say they have more personality than the Torchbearers is untrue.[SPOILER/]

    Well gee, it's not like any of those interesting personalities the Torchbearers have have been depicted in fiction at all. Since they haven't really done anything except stand around as Victorion in the comics and let's not mention the CW cartoon at all please.

    See, I don't think I was even aware the individual members of Victorion HAD tech specs. I'm going purely off the IDW comics here, where we've barely seen much of the individual members.

    Discounting the tech specs of both teams, I can get more of a feel for the personalities of the Destron gals than I can for the Victorion ones. (Though Trickdiamond/Flowheart I will concede don't come across quite as distinctive as the others do in the art.)

    Oh. My error then as that is a fair point. My sincerest apologies, sir.:oops: 

    A fair point.

    In any case I do apologize for my explosive outbursts, again. Without a proper frame of reference I tend to jump to my own conclusions. That combined with a volatile temper can lead to situations such as these.

    Before I go I wanted to drop this off. I figured this could used for Megaempress' TFwiki article profile.

    she has a decepticon emblem on her nipple!

    this is embarassing, for her, us and her gang. not to mention Sakamoto.

    Also at this point one must ask? Why just one nipple what about the other one? Is this the new trend for summer 2017???

    UW Grand Convoy sold out as well which I think was another sleeper hit.
