Megatron's minicon is Leader 1? OMG!!!:eek:

I don't have a big problem with recycling old G1 names, but when they recycle Go-bot names, it starts to get on my nerves.

Denyer 2002-02-09 01:33 AM

Dunno...
 
...I find it amusing that Leader-1 is a crummy little PowerMaster-style attachment to a TF.

RID Scourge 2002-02-09 01:51 AM

just puts everything into perspective, doesn't it?
 
Now we know where Gobots fit into Transformers continuity (Never mind the fact that there's a huge gap between Beast Wars, and G1, the gobots are way more important:rolleyes: )

I just hope that they explain the stuff that we're missing from Beast Wars (ie, the need for Maximals and Predicons, and the peace treaty that they speak of in the pilot).

Need for Maximals and Predacons?
Already known... when there is peace there is no need to be an excessively huge energon-guzzling war machine.... QED.

RID Scourge 2002-02-10 07:55 AM

Yeah, but why the name change?

BlueBlaster 2002-02-11 06:01 PM

And I thougt that the Go-Bots were extinct.

Isnt this a huge improvment for them?

The Wild One 2002-02-13 08:01 PM

My list is going to be Optimus, Megatron, Starscream, Laserbeak, Demolisher, and the air defense mini cons

RID Scourge 2002-02-14 12:36 AM

Here's a question: What do they mean by role playing when they talk about lazer beak's toy?

The Wild One 2002-02-14 03:09 PM

It't meant to be life sized. It is the same size it is going to be in the cartoon. That way you can pretend to use laserbeak.

Auntie Slag 2002-02-25 11:15 PM

The Grimlock name now seems to belong to a Transformer who looks like a cross between Hardhead and a Constructicon! That just doesn't feel right to me. Its Grimlock! our guy is a legend. I hope this ain't Grimlock's brain in a new body (I don't think that's the way this new line works is it?).

Galvatron looks a bit like a cross between a Power Rangers toy and Gundam wing. Still pretty cool, but... well, think I'll stick with G1 for now.:)

Denyer 2002-02-25 11:23 PM

You mean...
 
...in RiD? Nope, they're different characters. Not good name re-use, IM-no-so-HO... besides which, the Japanese names were cooler.

Build Boy
Build Hurricane
Build Typhoon
Build Cyclone

cooler? not by much though...

Denyer 2002-02-26 08:42 PM

Okay, okay...
 
...add "some of" into that sentence...

Pun-3X 2002-03-10 09:24 AM

Correct to "Most of" in that sentence.

Besides the Build team, everyone else's name seemed to fit. One could debate the Train-Trio, but either side works.

In regards to Laserbeak, it'd be an idea if he came with a mini-con Laserbeak, who could interact with the toy characters.

In other words, you've got your life-sized, and you've got one sized to the toys. Not a bad idea, considering.

Shrapnel Clone 2002-04-02 09:25 AM

I think Sideways' minicons can safely be removed from the list....
