    generations shockwave?

    I think he's supposed to be some sort of spaceship

    I just went to the tfwiki for shockwave and looked at g1 first

    he turns into a stupid looking laser gun

    spaceship works better though

    gen one makes no sense

    megatron is a giant pistol

    all his troops come to earth and start scanning war machines and megatron is all

    "nah, I think I'll be one of these earth guns"

    Megatron is eccentric

    Shockwave is just a giant hovering space gun

    why does he even have a trigger in giant space gun mode? pretty sure megatron shrank down so he could be used to shoot by his henches

    even unicron is in on this

    he could just give megs a new altmode when he upgrades him

    but no, he makes him a different gun and then just makes another guy into a ship for him

    transformers don't work like that

    G1 megatron isn't very bright

    G1 shockwave sees the benefits (that presumably exist) of turning into a fucking laser gun and decides to turn into a giant flying one so he doesn't have to rely on goddamned starscream or whoever to actually shoot him

    logic

    the shockwave made from the generations jazz mold is a botcon customization class or whatever thing, the thing where you pay money and go make and paint the toy yourself

    which is a shame

    because I am so desirous of it

    And Straxus sees that, goes "I could do better", and turns into a giant flying mobile artillery platform. All the gun, few of the drawbacks.

    And apparently it's technically Shattered Glass Longarm because in bizzarotron Longarm is Shockwave and you know what fuck these parellel dimensions.

    This is why Megatron and Galvatron are always tanks now.

    If I had that it would be Shockwave and only Shockwave. Not SG Longarm, not Shockblast, not 'Hey Cyclops' (but that's totally what my Classic 'Bee would be saying to him)

    Dichotomy, have you read Spotlight: Shockwave? I love that depiction of him; calculating, planning. It's not Starscream's underhanded selfish scheming, or Megatron's plans for his personal glory. It's Shockwave doing whatever it takes to ensure a future he wants, one that's likely better for Cybetronians as a whole, but he will not be fucked with anyone trying to change that. And if a certain group manages to break his clockwork actions, Primus help us he will beat you mercilessly. Not for his pleasure, not for his enjoyment. But because your meager existence interferes with what he hopes to accomplish.

    What is this Episode Club you speak of?

  • mightyspacepopemightyspacepope Registered User regular
    Just in case anyone else plans to do the G1 Episode Club, here are some random thoughts on MTMTE 1-3:

    1. Soundwave is a goddamn boss. He takes on like half a dozen Autobots in hand to hand combat before Ironhide knocks him down.

    2. When Megatron tells Starscream to "use his imagination" when finding a new source of energy, he really seems to be overtly pointing out that power station down the road a bit.

    3. Cliffjumper is a really sucky shot.

    4. The first roll call where Jazz tells everyone to form up and transform still gives me the shivers.

    5. Spike totally punches like a little bitch when he tries to get Rumble off his dad.

    6. It's pretty awesome how Megatron shuts Starscream down after pretty much every single assertion he makes.

    7. Optimus Prime is thwarted time and time again by Soundwave's cassettes.

    8. Prime totally does the talk... really... slow... and gesture... a lot type of speech when you're either speaking to someone who's really dumb or doesn't speak your language very well.

    9. Actually, the Decepticon cassettes are considerably more effective than the other Decepticons put together.

    More to come...

    I always thought dinobots disliked constructicons/combaticons more than predacons
    I think they're old rivals from the gladiatorial days in the IDW-verse. I know the cartoon set the Dinobots vs Devastator as a precedent. When were they rivals with the Combaticons?

    They were in G1 as well... UK stuff, at least. Divebomb was what Swoop used to be known as until a certain Predacon defeated him and took the name for himself (a throwback to the original name for Swoop, if memory serves).

    Also:



    Sort of funny, then, that a descendant named Dinobot would be a Predacon...

    masterpiece prime is valued at 99.99 canadian

    How...

    ...how does...

    ...how?

    I mean, isn't that thing $200 or in Japan? And they had to cut out Rodimus Prime's trailer just to make him affordable...

    How are they pulling that off?!

    how much will it cost in the USA

    I'm actually hoping it will be very expensive

    because the cheaper it is, the more likely it is that I might want to try to get one

    and lord knows I don't need the stress of trying to track down a Toys R Us exclusive that the scalpers will all snatch up immediately

    if it's 99 bucks in canada land it'll likely be cheaper
