    WTF @ TFW - 627 - Question Queue Qlearing X - Dec 9 2022

    These should at least account for 15% of the total value of your collection.png
    As more and more listener questions begin to stockpile, Vangelus has only one solution: Run Aaron and TJ through ten (or more?) listener questions in the span of two-ish hours.

    Multi-Cam Power Moves 0:00:00 -> 0:04:28
    Listener Question #1 0:04:28 -> 0:30:21
    Listener Question #2 0:30:21 -> 0:35:37
    Listener Question #3 0:35:37 -> 0:53:35
    Listener Question #4 0:53:35 -> 1:02:29
    Listener Question #5 1:02:29 -> 1:22:38
    Listener Question #6 1:22:38 -> 1:36:16
    Listener Question #7 1:36:16 -> 1:43:04
    Listener Question #8 1:43:04 -> 1:51:16
    Listener Question #9 1:51:16 -> 2:08:28
    Listener Question #10 2:08:28 -> 2:18:26
    Wrap-Up and Ending 2:18:26 -> 2:21:00

    Thanks for answering my question, I think I sent it in September and I was wondering if I needed to send it in again because I wasn't sure it was received or not.

    Part of me just can't relate with people that experience FOMO. For at least 10 years now, maybe more, my collecting philosophy has been one of "I'll get it when I get it, if not, oh well." I'll see posts from people stressing out over new releases for one reason or another, or complaining about "essential" characters missing or teams being incomplete. Like Vangelus I just look at these posts and think "Are these people having fun? Do they enjoy this?" if I ever get to be like that I'll know it's time to stop; Transformers is supposed to take stress out of my life not add to it

    Also, @Vangelus, I don't know if you ever saw the video I mentioned but here's a link anyway: KRE-O TRANSFORMERS BEAST HUNTERS BEAST BLADE OPTIMUS PRIME b.mp4

    You know you talk trash about Retrax but at least at the 2 walmarts I live by Retrax has sold out fairly quickly while Wolfang shelf warms. And they both have gotten several cases of them.

    Also X9 Ravage should be reissued because I want one.

    I think the untapped media for Transformers to go is the Bionicle approach:
    One story told by novels, movies, toy bios, online Flash games, and comics that only came out via a magazine subscription. But make sure there are huge gaps in each one so that you have to read the comics to understand the books, you have to read the books to understand the movies, you have to watch the movies to understand the comics, and the Flash games inform everything.

    It wasn't until the toyline gave us a taste, I would've loved a High Moon style Earthrise story. Not what they Hasbro have us, but more in line with s1 Cyberverse. Space hijinks, mix in Cons are hunting them so encounters have to neutralize squads, end with big run in with the nemesis orbiting earth.

    Another thought is your make transformation something you learn. Keep stock archetypes but I'm thinking each is like Ryu in Smash, transforming has tiers between a full combo and 1 button option with some sort of actionable bonus that scales if you do it bigger.

    Edit: yay, thanks for hitting my question. I didn't get the megazord and feel fine. Mildly regretting not going on Victory Saber, but also pleased it's not compelling me to also get Deathsaurus.

    "What if Arcee was a Headmaster?"

    1) Hey! Wait a minute....! That's referring to me!

    On the subject of beast modes, I would highly recommend everyone checking out terra810 on Twitter. They have some fantastic redesigns of G1, Animated, and movie characters as Maximals and Predacons, with some really clever transformations.

    (Some of my faves).

    @Picky Peeves Cliffjumper as a Carnotaurus makes perfect sense, I love it! Do you have any sketches of that?

    (Also new episode when? :D )

    My favorite unintentionally funny moment in Transformers is this entire short



    Close second is this verbal keysmash Optimus does in DOTM EDIT: just noticed TFW's formatting won't let me link a timecode. It's at 4:15.

    So I'm very late to actually listening to this one, oops, but yes mentioning Commandroids was a surgical strike :> The episode where you talked to one of the people making the system was fresh in my mind when I asked that, since so far its basically the only other system (that I know of) that goes so hard to try and capture Transformers' spirit.
