The DBZ power-ups in ep 32 were a dissapointment as well, and lets not talk about Chormia.

Gundam is probably (I'm guessing here, but it seems logical to me) their biggest compeditor in the Giant Robot market and there is no comparrison as far as the show goes.

BW and BM (both north am produced by Mainframe) seemed to have (for the most part, esp BM) gotten over the 20 minute commercial, so have most Gundams. Where GF has slipped away from the good stories in favour of flashy bits to sell toys. While that is the point, it's a little dissapointing for me, since the series started with some potential.

I still maintain though, that this is a rumour with out base. It just seems that the rumour popped up as soon as Tomy took over - and is probably fan parinoia.
EXACTLY Those shows had very deep plots, wonderfully done stuff, we need more TF shows like that!

It's been established that Cybertron and Galaxy Force are two different shows in the story sense, so spoilers to one, doesn't really pertain to the other! People here have handed my ass to me on the subject so don't cry to me about it!

It's been established that shows use same animation, and have therefore many similarities (episode numbers, characters etc.) -> Brave Max's post is a little spoiler.

I asked politely, and it'd have required very little work for you to edit your post. Or if you don't care, don't react. Instead you decide to reply and throw an insult at me. Nice. :rolleyes:

Your post would still include spoilers for those that want to watch GF but hadn't gotten to those latest episodes now wouldn't they?

He asked politely. I'm not...

I'm talking about the post that quotes Brave Max giving details about recent episodes of GF.

Do you understand now?

Well you lumped us together in that one post so I couldn't tell whom you were addressing.

When and where has that been established exactly?

I mean, some details are slightly different, but the overall story is still more or less the same.

I've had people jumping down my throat that they were different when I was predicting Cybertron was gonna be mediocre because Galaxy Force was, so don't even start.

Constant flicking between names and reformattings certainly doesn't help with interest retention... not that this is really the place as far as I can tell, anyway. The broad plot arc is a 'continuation', but the aim is mainly to attract the next wave of kids with a few holdovers from previous audiences by using some recognisable elements.

Funny how every new company Takara contracts to do the latest show always manages to ignore the point where it's supposed to be a continuation of last year's show... And the US dub has to fix that.

Just like Takara/We've/Gonzo changed Nitro Convoy's originally planned gender, and Hasbro/Voicebox changed it back.

Really? Nitro was supposed to be a girl to start with? Makes sense...cause even pics of the Japanese toy does look feminine.
