  1. I believe i've been misread, if the reboot consist in overriding or partially droping the background or completely altering the background of an stablished story, then i'm out. If the storyline gets ,in this case, a new approach refreshing old characters with new scenarios and looking forwards instead that returning to starting point, then I'M IN! By example, In the Batman TAS and Batman Beyond, you see how further a legend can grow, meeting an honorable "end" to an specific character and fullfilling his legacy in new heights, always with shocking revelations AND REMEMBERING WHERE DID THEY COME FROM, and not twisting the roots. It's a different media, maybe this how it would be accepted when the movie comes out, but in the comicbook pages lets hope GIJOE (Marvel/DDP) gets what it deserves. Joe Colton will always be the 1st. GIJOE. Snake Eyes will always be the Ninja/Commando that forged his legend with the help of constant continuity in his background.
  2. Sorry I don´t agree with you, HASBRO does toys, and Comic book writers do the background of those characters (toys), that´s why they have become pop culture icons. And as for SW, the 3 new movies are precuels, besides EPIII didn´t appealed to me to be kid oriented, but aimed to the FANS, that´s it.
  3. What keeps me bumping and bumping in my head is why are there some many folks like some of you here in this forum, that believe that a "REBOOT" of some, or any, pre-stablished storyline is a right thing!. In NO WAY there should be a reboot for the GIJOEs comic book continuum; if you consider a change, or that something needs to be changed, then take a pen or a PC and write a letter to the editor in any Company, that is. The storylines need to evolve gradually, if you are placing them in real time, then the characters will age and then there will come the new blood, to fill the former place; If characters die, then it's reflecting life itself. War is War and the joes are, and will always be; at War. Thats their reason to exist as an Elite Unit. The IDW company did some hard damage to the Transformers Universe, don´t you dare to support any "NEW" continuity like what happened to the TF´s; Even DC Comics, the creators behind all the INFINITE UNIVERSES, are already tired of the idea and bringing it to an end. Please, whoever wins the GIJOE comic book license, show some respect and continue the history of the JOES mythos. What would George Lucas think, if the SW fans wanted a "reboot" of his Masterpiece?.
  4. my wishlist for the next ten are: 1.-Hawk v.2 2.-Stalker v.3 (whitout the talking backpack) 3.-Serpentor (w/removable mask) 4.-Zartan 5.-Viper (w/removable helmet) 6.-Firefly 7.-Crimson Guard 8.-Shipwreck (plus Polly) 9.-Blowtorch 10.-Beachhead Hope that down the line ( I think it will further continue, those sculpts are sweet ) we can have almost all the best versions of each joe that was made during their first run, New versions of the the Ninja commandos could really rock ('specially Snake eyes, Scarlett and the Night Creepers)
  5. This is my list: 1.-Hawk v.2 2.-Stalker v.3 (whitout the talking backpack) 3.-Serpentor (w/removable mask) 4.-Zartan 5.-Viper (w/removable helmet) 6.-Firefly 7.-Crimson Guard 8.-Shipwreck (plus Polly) 9.-Blowtorch 10.-Beachhead Hope that down the line ( I think it will further continue, those sculpts are sweet ) we can have almost all the best versions of each joe that was made during their first run, New versions of the the Ninja commandos could really rock ('specially Snake eyes, Scarlett and the Night Creepers)
  6. Damn u Joe Q'! what the hell were you thinkink at the " House of Ideas "?, do you think this the right way to "put on ice" an Honorable character like CAP???????? The SOLDIER survived WWII, had to deal with his life after almost 30 years and STILL became an ICONIC HERO of GOD knows how many generations!!!! He survived BAD WRITERS and EXCELLENT WRITERS and STILL his STAR shone on every comic, place, image, etc. he appeared on!!!!! He was like an Immortal, Heck even was the only human able to lift MJOLNIR!!!!!! And now what?, a bullet in the head from some COWARD (hope it wasn't the Winter Soldier aka Bucky) c'mon STOP the authopsy, the SSS can still cure him, isn't it? He deserved a better death than this, just FIGHTIN' WITH HIS BROTHERS ON ARMS AGAINST A COMMON FOE! Hope this is some SHIELD LMD and the REAL Steve Rogers faked his own death and is waiting in the dark with ol' Nick Fury for the right moment to strike back! I REALLY HOPE SO!!!! First U killed off in a lame way HAWKEYE, (OK, He's back already in a lame way) and now CAP.....JEEEEZZZZZ!!!!! By the way, Frank Castle will stop wearing the skull and instead wear an "A" or a star, ja ja, just kiddin' The PUNISHER must look for those responsibles for this outrageous and indignous moment. Clean the "House of Ideas" from those NAZIS (or whatever) at the Marvel offices. Hope they don't kill him too ( for the Nth Time). Democracy, Justice, Freedom and Hope lost an excellent warrior (Damn u Joe Q'). Until The Marvel Universe become a safer place to read, Make Mine Marvel! the King is Dead, but He'll be back!!! Excelsior!!!!
  7. hi guys! i'm new to the game greetings to you all!! and merry christmas ! ooops! i think i forgot these guys. see ya!
  8. oops! sorry I was on the run. see you guys in other posts. greetings and MERRY CHRISTMAS TO YOU ALL!!!!!!
  9. WELL I HOPE SOME DIRECTIVES AT DC DIRECT ARE LISTENING TO THIS, YOU NEED SUPERVISION AT YOUR PRODUCTION DEPARTMANT BECAUSE THIS POST IS COMPLETELY AND ABSOLUTELY A REASON TO BE! I'M LIKE ALMOST ALL THE TOY COLLECTORS OUT THERE THAT COMPLY ABOUT THOSE "PURPOSEDLY" SCALED VERSION OF CHARACTERS, AND I MEAN FROM TAKE MY NOTE THE CURRENT G.I.JOE, STAR WARS, MASTERS OF THE UNIVERSE, MARVEL LEGENDS, DC DIRECT, DC SUPERHEROES, AND EVEN TRANSFORMERS, (SORRY I'M NO TREKKIE). THEY ALL DIFFER IN A CONSISTENT SCALE. BACK IN THE MID 80'S WHEN THE COLLECTIVE CRAZE BEGAN, ALL THE TOY COMPANIES (HASBRO, KENNER AND MATTEL) CARED A LOT ABOUT THEIR TOY LINES, BY EXAMPLE: ALL THE GI.JOES HAD A SINGLE SCALE IN ORDER TO FIT THEIR VEHICLES, HE-MAN AND MARVEL'S SECRET WARS USED ALMOST THE SAME MOLD, STAR WARS TOY ARE THE BACKBONE FOR MODERN COLLECTIONS AND THEY USED AN UNIQUE SCALE FOR THEIR COLLECTION, AGAIN IN ORDER TO FIT THE VEHICLES. TRANSFORMERS ARE UNIQUE IN THEIR KIND, THEY ARE THE BEST TOY LINE EVER, EVEN TODAY. ANY OF YOU REMEMBER M.A.S.K.? EVEN THEN THEY SCALED THEIR FIGURES TO LOOK AS THE CARTOON. THUNDERCATS OR SILVERHAWKS? THE SAME HAPPENED THEN. AND I'LL TELL YOU WHAT, THOSE JEWELS OF OUR CHILDHOOD ARE WORTH EVERY CENT NOW, BECAUSE THEY LOOK COOL, FIT IN AS A UNIFIED LINE, KEEP A REASONABLE SCALE TO PLAY OR IN OUR COLLECTORS CASE, TO DISPLAY, AND ARE UNIKE IN THEIR OWN KIND. I WAS SAVING THE BEST FOR MY REPLY.... DO YOU REMEMBER THE DC SUPERPOWERS COLLECTION?. THE FIRST AND AT THAT TIME THE BEST RENDITION TO OUR BELOVED DC CHARACTERS, AND DO YOU REMEMBER WHAT MADE THEM SO SPECIAL, BECAUSE THEY ALL LOOKED LIKE TO THEIR COMIC BOOK COUNTERPARTS, FROM COLORS TO SCULPTURE TO SIZE TO SCALE BETWEEN THEM! . HECK!, EVEN THE VEHICLES WERE COOL BACK THEN. NOW 22 YEARS LATER, WE ARE HAVING THE CHARACTERS WE GREW TO LOVE FROM ANT-MAN THROUGH WOLVIE, AND FROM ATOM THROUGH ZATANNA, AND GUESS WHAT ? THEY ARE EVEN UNCOMPATIBLE! A FEW YEARS BACK A DEBATE LIKE THIS ONE HAPPENED, AND THE SUBJECT BACK THEN WAS ... HOW MANY POINTS OF ARTICULATION DOES AN ACTION FIGURE SHOULD HAVE? NOW A FEW YEARS LATER INDUSTRIAL DESIGN AND ENGINEERING VAVE DEVELOPED AS FAR AS 42 POINTS OF ARTICULATION IN A 6INCHES ACTION FIGURE. 'NUFF SAID BY THE WAY, WHY SINCE MATTEL OWNS THE RIGHTS TO PRODUCE THE DC CHARACTERS, WHY DON'T THEY RE-ISSUE THOSE OUT OF PRODUCTION DC DIRECTS? I BELIEVE THAT WOULD BE COOL. DOES ANYONE HAVE A PHANTOGRAPH THAT COULD BE DELIVERED AS A PRESENT TO THE PRODUCTION DEPARTMENT IN THE DC DIRECT OFFICE? ANYONE?
  10. Do you know how many sagas are in the Nicknamed G1? I believe that somewhere in all the TF's storylines or Timelines exists a connection, I strongly believe that all of them (sans the Murphy's 07' move) could be tied-up. Looks like IDW's are heading towards that direction, and probably will define the TF's Mythology as a strong one. Anyway if they didn't there could be always an explanation to all the different "Universes" and, NOP, it's not because of UNICRON. By the way, my favorite saga is the TF's VICTORY anime.
  11. HEY! nobody's interested in REFLECTOR? i always wanted (and still want, hope TAKARA will re-issue him someday) that figure since I was a kid. Just like SOUNDWAVE, they could design him as an authentically rendered reflex camera. Cannon type. really COOL! As for the Gestalts, well maybe using the BINALTECH line, but instead of looking for car licences, the solution may be at HASBRO's hands. TONKA renders some very realistic and beautiful construction trucks and vehicles. The formula could be TAKARA + HASBRO + TONKA x TRANSFOMERS = CONSTRUCTICONS and TRAINBOTS (I'm screw-loosing my mind, again).
  12. With the delivery of MP-04 STARSCREAM, (masterfully coool!!) and the upcoming MEGATRON Masterpiece, which other TF's should be made to make a dream come true? my vote are for these bots & cons: -SOUNDWAVE: with all 5 original cassettes included (maybe even RATBAT could come in the set) -Masterpiece DESTRON CASSETTES : in case the MP SOUNDWAVE didn't come with his minions -BLASTER: Ditto like SOUNDWAVE -RODIMUS PRIME: If we have MAGNUS why not RODIMUS? -ULTRA MAGNUS: With his TRAILER/Fusion ARMOR -SHOCKWAVE: 'Nuff Said. like his original G1 version, with cool looking lights and sounds -BUMBLEBEE: Forget licences, this is it! -CLIFFJUMPER: BBEE repaint, okay? -GALVATRON -CYCLONUS -GRIMLOCK: Sponsored by National Geographic, HA,ha. -REFLECTOR: An authentically rendered reflex camera, TF Style. well that's my shot by now. post your msot sought MPTF.
  13. MMMMM, to say by the critic eye.... it looks lika a custom to me... HOPE Not, but that's what it looks to me.
  14. Wait a minute....Is that X-Treme Rogue...NO! it finally happened, Rogue became Cyke! Yikes! Ruby Armor?, what the?... @hmmm@
  15. As the Year close to an end, and knowing that Hasbro may be taking care for the TF brand before the movie hits in 2007, I believe it's time that our votes can be heard more locally and vote for the last remaining Autobots (next on the list being Mirage)that should be remade as Binaltechs/Alternators. Instead of choosing for the popularity of the character (as Takara and Hasbro have been doing) and the year in which this story takes place, I think that these 'Bots should be redesigned with some new shinning armor. I also thought in Runamuck and Runabout as the only Decepticons that could fit as 'Techs/Alts. Maybe some of you guys may believe that some of the Stunticons or Protectobots should be remade, but I preffered to keep them as a Gestalt team, and not being everyone of them as crappy repaints. Speaking of Repaints, this formula sometimes works, SOMETIMES, so i placed the Diaclone option. If you have any other 'Bot in mind, (Inferno, Hoist, Grapple, Roadbuster, Gears and Huffer ) let us know.
  16. Well I believe there are 8 figures in series 11 but more then that is not realistic. I also believe they are probably through with the numbered series. I wouldn't be surprised if here on out they have a name or a theme i.e. Galactus Series, Sentinel Series, Legendary Riders, Apocolypse Series, Bring on the Bad Guys, etc. I like a lot of these Series suggestion (some I don't). The ones I like are: The Sidekick Series. This is a cool idea but there is no way they would have a build a figure along with it. Cosmic Series would be awesome and I would love either BAF there. Also the armor Wars is a cool idea (no way on that BAF though) The rest I am not to keen on. Nice lists though.....a lot of fun to look at and imagine......nicely done in my opinion. well, Thanks! I agree with you, maybe it's a large list or maybe some BaF may not be adecuate, but it's still a suggestion and it can always be different. I also thought of an AGE OF APOCALYPSE series or a Masters of Evil series, but we still can always suggest some boxed gift sets. C'mon let me know of your opinions.
  17. JIN!!!!! you're one of the best customizers out there, CONGRATULATIONS! and thanks for the inspiration.
  18. Devcon had one appearance in the show. ONE. Skids had more appearances in the cartoon than Devcon. That should speak for itself in multiple volumes. It's a good assumption that most people don't even know of the character. I don't think that I'd want the OTFCC Devcon....I like Slugslinger, but seriously, that mold is just too floppy, even when the pins are secured tightly. As Scottie said, the only one that truly had my interest was the Defensor mold, but that's only because G1 Defensor holds a special place in my heart. The other ones-meh. That's why the TF brand is becoming so insanely dull, when they could create some new molds for old favorites, they come with some crappy repaints, retooled repaints, or crappy repaints of the same character. I'd like to think of GF. Jackshot as an updated Brawn, and Energon Cliffjumper as Roadbuster. That's what i can call updated versions of the characters; It's a shame that these days nobody else think that way. It was cooler in the old days, even the Diaclone days. Damn you all Hasbro and Takara. @grumpy@
  19. Since the ML line-up became so diverse, i've been wandering and finally made a list for possible future assortments, having in mind the theme for the series and even some Build-a-Figures. Guys tell me what do you think about this: SIDEKICKS series: BaF=the Watcher -1st App. Captain America & Bucky -Smart Hulk & Rick Jones -Wolverine (Battle ravaged)& Jubilee -1st. App. Magneto & Toad -Mole Man & Moleoids (3 different sculpted) -Vindicator & Puck -Tusk (Apocalypse horseman)& Tuskettes (3 different sculpted) MIDNIGHT SONS series: N'Ashtir or Dormamuu -new Ghost Rider -Blade -Lilith -Morbius (midnight sons) -John Blaze -Deathwatch -Mordred -Strange (midnight sons) -Blackout -Hellstrorm ONSLAUGHT series: Onslaught unleashed -Jean Grey (gold x-team) -Invisible Woman w/ Franklin Richards -Onslaught w/ Prof. X. -Thor (Mike Deodato's design) -Hawkeye (Mike Deodato's design) -Scarlet Witch (Mike Deodato's design) -X-Man (Nathan Summers) -Post LETHAL WEAPONS series: Shiva or Tri-Sentinel -Wolverine (Patch) or Special ops. version -1st. App. Sabretooth -Spiral -Death's Head (II) -Shatterstar (Tony Daniel's version) -Silver Sable -Typhoid Mary -Cyber -Maverick COSMIC POWERS series: Eternity or Celestial -Silver Surfer (chrome finish) -Thanos -Adam Warlock w/ Pip the Troll -Terrax -Firelord -Drax -Gladiator -Thor (new version) or Eric Masterson's -Quasar -Magus ARMOR WARS series: Ultimo -Iron Man -Stilt Man -Beetle -Stingray -Controller -Living Laser -Titanium Man -Crimson Dynamo -Vault Guardsman ALTER EGOS series: Goliath or Giant Man -new Captain America -Daredevil -Hulk (re-issue from Hulk series w/B. Banner) -Scarlet Spider -Ghost Rider -Sensational Spider-Man (Ben Reilly) -Ant-Man MK 2099 series: -Doom -Spider-Man -Ravage -Ghost Rider -Hulk -Daredevil -Black Panther well i'm done by now... what do you think guys?
  20. You guys have all lost focus of this poll. Forget G1,G2,G3 or whatever they might be called JUST DO one and only Storyline!!! George Lucas where are you?
  21. The 80's movie score has been one of the best we have by far, nevertheless, the japanese theme songs are indeed good (TFVictory rule!). Why can´t anyone here see that all the continuity is a real mess, you should stop saying that we should explore the Car Robots Universe. and then what? more trash to the basket? The Transformers have some greater potential as an unified storyline, they should start from ground zero, but not like the current comics, but as an origin story, a TF:Genesis or TF:War Dawn. The TFUniverse toy series is a real waste of time (although some molds are the best there are) we can´t count with a real storyline that is strong enough to bring some important elements to what is already stablished. The guys at Mainframe tied BW to G1, The guys at Dreamwave were already planning something like this too, then WHY can´t we have a solid, thru sagas, unified story. Remake all the history from a clean slate, keep all the likeness of all the characters, KEEP ALL THE ORIGINAL NAMES!!!!, and re-stablish a coherent continuty that was kept until... my guess CAR ROBOTS?.
  22. Also imagine that we could finally have some decent MUSICAL score for this new beginning, not just the story and finally the figures, but also a really good score for our favorite RID, they could finally be More than meets the eye!
