Broadly I thought all *Transformers* are Autobots/Maximals unless they choose to be Decepticons/Protoforms, with the latter being a breakaway political ideology rather than something hard-coded into their sparks.

I do have the power to delete all other posts and very little compunction about using aforementioned power in such a stupid way.

So where do we stand on letting a boring troll post obvious bait endlessly? Leave it run as there's bugger-all activity and no-one's biting? Or shall I bother locking it? At least it's contained here. Thoughts?

Cinema in general is on a bit of a downturn and I think a lot of franchise stuff is on the cusp of if not a slump then a steady downturn. Superhero stuff for example just isn't special anymore - Homecoming took millions but I think Marvel were expecting Spidermania. This stuff just isn't *special* a...

Incredibly work has had four magazines in on spinners. How do you fill four publications with stuff on them?

In some realities where he has (Age of Apocalypse) they haven't grown back. It's a tone thing but generally from memory a major injury tends to slow Logan down whereas for Wade it's just an excuse for zany meta banter.

God, I hate that book so much.

Yeah, I can see why boring troll is getting boring; third time now, too. Anyone else want a play or shall I just lock?

Omega Supreme was one of the Guardian Robots. In the cartoon, where he's not treated as a deterrent but as a space bus that blows up often and is replaced by Sky Lynx within 30 years. The Guardian Robots are not impressive because otherwise more than one of them would have survived a run-in with th...

Omega Supreme has been around for millions of years, unlike Hulk and Deadpool. Not in the comic; he only lived for about five years from being created by Grapple to blown up by Starscream. IIRC (and it's a piece of shit comic so I'm no expert on it) Deadpool's healing factor is much, much more powe...

Let's not forget that they managed to lose various trademarks on Captain Marvel to Marvel despite owning the character before Marvel even existed. The timing really seems odd with Bumblebee, though - they fought tooth and claw to get the trademark back in time for the '07 film and didn't bother tack...

Wait, there's not even a Last Knight thread? WAIT THERE IS

It was pretty lousy, though, wasn't it? Like all the worst bits from the first four just thrown up there. Even I wasn't that crazy about it TBH. Marky Mark was still Marky Mark enough to Marky Mark, the DJD spoof was genuinely hilarious and it was nice to see that Roadbuster and Topspin just ****ed ...

That is not going to go down well with the bloated basement-dwellers the line has been catering for recently.

Omega's construction was possibly quite off-putting to parents, if you were to lose the wrong couple of parts he'd be unusable. Hasbro abandoned Partsformers relatively quickly.

Yeah, his buggered colours and Cheetara's weird face take the edge off and I'd have preferred a "super" Mum-Rah and one of his minions instead of Bengali but they're alright for shambling amateurs like meself.

It just seems really bizarre to do it *now* when Karen's been out in DC Superhero Girls long enough to be heavily reduced. I'm guessing they've asked nicely before or something?

G1 Chromedome & Scourge through someone local selling a load of stuff (I got Beatmix Bumblebee for my daughter), both in excellent condition. It is staggering to believe either of these were actually considered toys even thirty years ago, let alone towards the top end of the line. Been a while since...

I just don't think they'd be able to lean on their base like that if the movies hadn't expanded it so much. If the movies had never happened and the fandom had stayed at the (still considerable, but not nearly as large) size that it was in 2006, things like Titans Return or regular Masterpiece rele...
