Should've been killed already so we can get on with the plot and some adventure. Basically, erase the first 6 or 7 issues of LL and replace it with Getaway crew shenanigans and then he should've been killed and it all resolved by now.

He was completely in the right but since he's the villain he had to be written in a ridiculous way just to make him wrong so that the actual villain and his collaborators can appear to be in the right.

Mensaor toys seem hindered by the fact no one can seem to figure out WHAT the fuck to do. Several 3rd party companies have shat out $600 fucking combiners that were absolute dog shit because each tried to do something different and failed spectacularly at everything from look to quality. The official Menasor's have been shit too.
At least Predaking got 1 good $600 monster of a combiner, Mensaor's had half a dozen or more now and hasn't even gotten 1 above "dog shit".

Prowl and Getaway despite having a past, never interacted onscreen.

I actually want Prowl to defeat Getaway and everybody else is just amazed Prowl did something right and they're just like well....huh.

Will this go full circle with Spotlight Mirage and have the arc end with Hound dying in Mirage's arms? Actually, I want the climax to mimic pic related just to have Mirage pull the wool over Getaway's optics and save the Lost Light.
>>
>>97344077
That is definitely part of the blame. Every company has done Motormaster slightly differently, and every time it's been a huge clusterfuck because they just cannot give up the idea of trying to make the trailer be part of him/the combiner in multiple ways. I think thats what trips everyone up.

Meanwhile Devastator they've made a perfect Legends sized version that has 0 partsforming with good individual robot modes. The only downside of the whole thing is the individual 'bots don't have neck articulation, which at that point was just the company cheaping out, they could've easily fit them onto the figures.

Energon Prowl was not a character....he existed.

I could not tell you what his personality was and I’ve seen all of Energon in its entirety.

>>97345532
Energon Prowl showed up in 33 of 51 episodes. I know you're shitposting but come on that's some moronic statement to throw around.
>>
>>97345643

The only noteworthy thing he did was accidentally Powerlink wrong with Downshift.
>>
>>97345532
I think that's more just because of the state of Energon as a whole.
>>
>>97345683

I could tell you some characters who had personalities or something interesting happen to him but a Prowl has very little.
>>
>>97345683
Energon just suffers from "too many characters to develop". You have: Team Optimus, Team Megatron, 3 Combiners, Team Rodimus, Team Bulkhead, Omnicons, Scorponok/Alpha Q & Terrorcons and the humans. That's a little over 30 characters, compare that to Animated or Prime with a small core cast to see which show had it better for character development.

Also all the 3rd parties trying to keep Motormaster's alt mode (cab & trailer) in scale with the other Stunticon's car modes. So it ends up having a lot of open/empty space on the inside which leads to the mold being shit.
I would gladly take a smaller semi-truck (like how CW Hotspot's alt mode doesn't scale with the rest of the protectobots) if it meant the mold would be solid in transformation and not flimsy when posing.

The thing with RID15 is that it is, by far, the least ambitious of the Transformers shows. It is a perfectly serviceable monster-of-the-week cartoon for kids, but has literally no interest in being anything more than that, hence the complete lack of build-up to the end-of-season threats.

Destroying the universe is too much of a great thing to be contained in what's labeled as evil. It's not only a matter of scale of destruction, if the character's actions are truly despicable, not to mention relatable enough to the real world, such actions could be seen as even more evil than erasing the very existence.

I honestly think that once Hasbro wants villain Megatron again someone (probably Overlord) is going to needle/shadowplay him and remove all the development that's happened to him since Dark Cybertron. Maybe they even erase parts of Megatron they don't think "fit" with their ideas of what Megatron should be. I was hoping Tarn was going to be the one to do this but alas.

The fact that Tyrest chooses who dies makes him somewhat more evil than Shockwave. Kind of how killing everyone on Earth is evil but killing everyone but one person feels more evil. It's more about intent.

All I'm gonna say that making Cybertron a homonormative society is retarded when they are an alien non-biological race. There's nothing sexual about their race. Calling any of them gay or straight or TRANSformers is just stupid. Putting our perspective onto a race that at their very core doesn't experience life like we do is just stupid.
>>
>>97373934
All of it is stupid anon. All of it. That being said as far as we know they dont have sex or reproduce so their bonds are more like choosing your platonic soulmate so dont get your panties all twisted over nothing.
>>
>>97373968
It's less jarring to me in the story itself. Such as anode coming to use she/her over he/him as personal pronouns. It's the reactions of people claiming that "all transformers are TRANSformers" and shit like that that irritate me. Plus the knowledge of how hamfisted Roberts is with this kind of thing. I know I'm just jaded at this point but meh.

I don't buy that. IDW was already planning to replace him with Abnett and Lanning before that fell through, and then by the time that Chaos Theory came out they knew that James Roberts was going to be writing the next series. And then Costa got, what, 8 issues after Chaos Theory to finish things off? They might have asked him to finish things off so someone else could have a turn, but they didn't abruptly kick him off.

Well it wouldn't be YOU Shockwave.

As horrifying as the idea is I do find it amusing to think that the child of Galvatron and Megatron would end up being someone with DOUBLE FUSION CANNONS. Tarn? Oh lord no. Starscream with his puny arm mounted blasters and his entire mission to save the Cons is ruined because he's a whiny, ineffectual cunt.

Anode is basically the least bad thing about Lost Light. At least she distracts from the complete waste of potential of the Functionistverse and the boring feelsbait Nautica melodrama.

remove Anode, and rework the first few arcs and it could've been much more accepted.

sad part is that the final season could've legit been epic if they actually gave a crap about the corrupt council plot.

they just kept wasting time the whole season when it could've focused more on it. They don't even get to Cybertron till the 2nd last episode.

It's not even wanting it to be a Prime 2.0. It's that it could've legit been even better than Prime ever was. Shame it lacked any ambition the show really. It had some great new character ideas.

Yeah, it definitely feels like a show that sets up stuff for future shows to pull elements from. Kind of like the original show actually.
>>
>>97387006

pretty much except it really feels like there was a real endgame to work with.

Prime had the better cinematic feel but RID had the better character dynamics.

if you could fuse that together and have a more fulfilling plot. it legit would've been the best show ever.
>>
>>97386912
Terminus was a mistake. Megatron leaving the crew to do soul searching on whether or not violence is a necessity or should be allowed for him to be a good mech and bring about the good kind of changes he always wanted/protect his crew would have been great, had him exit the "main" storyline for a while without that waste of an alternate reality arc with almost zero alternate versions of characters we already knew.

Terminus just immediately grabbed Megatron by the balls and that was that.
>>
>>97387372
>Terminus just immediately grabbed Megatron by the balls and that was that.

Exactly. He can see Megatron is wanting to make amends for all the terrible shit that he did and is just all "Naw man". For being the guy Megatron trusted to edit his work, Terminus is just as much a mindless fanboy of Megs as Tarn.

On the plus side though, just imagine how this will blow over when they finally pick him up from the functionist world and the truth comes out.
>>
>>97387520
Wasn't he also Megatron's "mentor"? Meaning Megatron probably learned alot of his violent socialist doctrine from him, anyway.
I was waiting for Terminus to be a brainwashed sleeper agent, though. I still kind of hope it happens.

I would hope Megs will make his own return via magical portals or some silly shit, and use the functionist matrix alongside either Rodimus Optimus to destroy Unicron. I kind of do want the crew to feel shitty about believing he bailed on them and abandoning him after he just gave up returning to the DJD's side/violence in general for them, though because UM's REEEEEEEEE IVE BEEN ABUSED speech made me fucking hate him.
>>
>>97387372
There are two problems. First is that traveling with the Lost Light WAS Megatron's soul searching journey and part of trying to be better was keeping to his word to be judged by the Knights so he wouldn't have just wandered off on his own by choice, I would think. What kind of soul searching journey would it be if right at the start he decided to fuck over his promises and the conditions on which he was allowed to search for "higher" judgement separate from the people he'd been at war with?

Terminus may or may not be a bad thing, it's hard to tell given how briefly he was around, but any kind of personal moral quest for Megatron done off page seems like a huge copout.
>>
>>97387637
Megs could have easily had a side story, like the Mutineers are getting rather than the functionist arc.
He did however seem completely unsure of what he was going to do after killing the DJD, and scared of the fact he was about to round violently on Ratchet, so having him freak out for a while over violence/pacifism and how both are needed to protect people like Ravage whom he loves would seem more natural than Terminus instantly making him chill and pacifistic again.
>>
>>97387623
I don't know about the violence. Hell, Megatron used to go out for coffee with Impactor. Learning evil from Terminus seems like a copout to the notion IDWformers has been pushing that Megatron, as bad as he was, was nevertheless a product of Cybertron's corrupt system. All the tyrannical social control and repression being imposed on the society eventually created someone who snapped and decided to just tear it all down and make something better, however this was a person so broken he could never get to the point of creating his planned utopia. All he had was violence and misery, the only things that kept him going.

It's Transformers: Paradise Lost edition. Megatron is the "fallen angel" who decided it was better to reign in hell than serve in heaven but his own attempt to create something better to spite the powers that be is literally called Pandemonium. He intended it to be glorious and instead it was a twisted mess that was also eternally on fire.
>>
>>97387825
I should probably get around to reading that book and Dante's Inferno someday.
>>
>>97387372

agreed.

The Functionist arc would've been more compelling if we met at least one character in that universe who had a counterpart we the audience know and relate to.

Orion Pax being saved for a phone call was a mistake.

Orion Pax should've been front and centre that arc which would've made Megatron really second guessing himself and not just lol Terminus tricked him to stay and do his revolution.

So anons. What, if anything could drive Megatron back to warlordery?

in G-2/ it was death of his husbando that sent him into full ragemode and break off the Cybertron Alliance, so i'd suppose Optimus being killed might get him mad/grief-stricken enough to lose it.

Have they fired Sitterson from the main book yet? He's been directly shit-talking the company and whining about the alt-right boogeyman ever since SSF got cancelled.
>>
>>97366266
Sitterson is a douchebag, but I think the bigger issue is that IDW and Hasbro itself have not yet figured out how to make GI Joe popular again. The whole brand doesn't really work for general audiences anymore.
I think the key is to make it feel like in the best GI Joe stories where Cobra is so powerful that you feel like every fight is for the fate of mankind. Like in the Devil's Due World War 3 story arc. They should take a cue from the old TF/GI Joe crossovers and have Cobra piloting an army of reverse-engineered Cybertronian mechs.
Also classic Cobra Commander is essential. He's arguably the face of the entire franchise.

>>97402416
>but I think the bigger issue is that IDW and Hasbro itself have not yet figured out how to make GI Joe popular again
The short of it is that GI Joe cannot be popular anymore in the current climate. It's a uniquely American franchise from back in a time when the US wasn't fatigued from non-stop endless wars against vague countries across the world filled with "DA TERRARISTS". The public in general is tired of all of this shit, especially with the constant outcry to take better care of our vets and the gov't hilariously inept at doing so, and thats a bad time to try and sell "US ARMY MANS WHO FITE DA TERRATISTS". Give it 20 or so years, if we can pull out of all of the messes we're embroiled in, and see if then the war fatigue is over.
>>
>>97405570
His book is cancelled and he's not working on any others at IDW. IDW's official statement is that the cancellation is due to low sales, Sitterson claims sales were only low because IDW caved to the demands of "alt-right extremists" and stopped promoting the book, and in another thread an anon who's uncle works at Nintendo claimed that Hasbro demanded Sitterson be taken off the book.

>Hasbro itself have not yet figured out how to make GI Joe popular again.
Personally, the tv show Renegades had a chance to make the brand popular again. It just suffered from being exclusively on The Hub. the show taking an "A-Team" feel to the plot and introducing secondary Joes throughout the season was great. But not having a payoff of a 2nd season for these characters to return is a bummer.

>>97377702

In Zero Point (JRo's text story in the LSOTW hardcover) Roadbuster described Springer's eyes as glowing a "matrix bearer blue" or something like that. But this was of course before MTMTE 22 which soft retconned that anyone can modulate the color of their optics. Not that characters do it often, but prior to then changes in eye color were only due to early IDW colorist license and Deadlock's switch to blue optics when he changed his name to Drift.

At this point with SOTW revealing Springer to be built by Tarantulas and Roberts not likely picking it up again unless he and Roche team up on another book. Probably best forgotten just like the numerous plot holes in AHM.

Prowl straight up assassinates Starscream and the bulk of the council in broad daylight because they were doing something Optimus Prime didn't approve of and then force Optimus to give him sanctuary as opposed to killing him then and there.

The destruction of the council and Megatron's fuckboy would kill Cybertron's one last hope for peace. And Optimus being a cuck and not turning Prowl over to the mob to be put the death for his crimes, causes Megatron to snap, reform the Decepticons to rain death and genocide upon anyone harboring Prowl and on Optimus, who's refusal to kill Prowl for his crimes makes him pretty much an accomplice after the fact.

They killed SSF before the first issue came out. It will only run for three issues (out of a four issue arc, so the story won't get resolved) and even then, Sitterson salted the earth so badly that Hasbro didn't even want those three issues to see the light of day/just wanted to kill it wholesale. IDW had to basically beg to be allowed to publish the three finished issues, pleading poverty due to them having already paid for them.

Also Sitterson has no new books lined up with the company and with the Hasbro master license up for renewal at the end of 2018, outside him being put on Sonic or TMNT, he's pretty much unofficially blacklisted from Hasbro's books.

GI Joe could still be made popular if they just fucking embraced the concept and not pussy around. CoD, Metal Gear Solid, fuck even Suicide Squad showed elite task force of colorful special forces types can work if you market it right.

Renegades was shit. Horrible roster choice (No one gives a fuck about black Ripcord, Heavy Duty, or Duke); made Flint and Lady Jaye bad guys working for the government, and Cobra was basically Blackwater and horribly portrayed as generic evil.

It was so bad that it didn't even get a proper toy line; just random figures inserted into the 30th anniversary line that more or less followed the trend set with the insanely popular Pursuit of Cobra brand that preceded Renegades.

kys you idiot, Megatron oneshotting them with magic eye matter he literally pulled out his ass was the biggest let down of the entire book and probably of Lost Light too

O-okay...
Since we're on the topic can anyone give me a brief run down on why this Sitterson guy is such a cunt? I only know the little bits that have been talked about here so far.
>>
>>97415255
Probably the same reasons Costa is a cunt.
>>
>>97415306
Costa I'm at least familiar with, he's impressively oblivious to the real world.
>>
>>97415255
He's just a big mouth who doesn't know when to shut up to put it lightly. He gets himself into deep shit and blames everyone else for it. This time he ran his mouth on a particularly sensitive topic (talking about 9/11 on 9/11) and IDW supposedly fired him for his comments among other things I think.

I'm watching Masterforce, and Ginrai on two separate occasions referred to Convoy's corpse as female.

So this Convoy could be female?
Hot

Loudmouthed shithead who can't keep his opinions to himself and goes out of his way to antagonize people. Basically, he'd fit right in with the current Marvel crew.
>>
>>97415255
He's an outspoken far-left anarchist/socialist so right-wingers hate him just for that.

He made a big deal about how it would be good if the military would fight for something actually good, like socialism, instead of something bad, like capitalism.

He made a big deal about how this is an international Joe team (because American imperialism is bad) who use martial arts and less lethal lasers (because gun violence bad, and since Joes are the best of the best they should usually be capable of capturing their enemies rather than killing them).

He made a big deal about changing Salvo into a fat Samoan woman (because diversity).

He made a big deal on 9/11 about how people who weren't in NYC on that day or didn't lose someone close to them should stop memorializing it.

He went around the Joe forums and facebook groups and such and intentionally antagonized right-wingers.

He sounds like a real peach.
>>
>>97416648
For as much as we bitch about Roberts, at least he usually doesn't go around telling the fans to eat shit.
>>
>>97416397
I'm not a huge Joe fan so I never really got outraged by the Salvo thing. But given what I know of the franchise I do feel he should have either made this Salvo a legacy character or perhaps chosen a Samoan Joe and have her be the relative of that Joe. Something to personally connect her to what had already been done rather than replace it.
>>
This Combiner sadly didn't get any love during the CW event anywhere, right?

I like him. He's teal.

Are spotlights a thing that happen anymore? I'd give my big left toe for a Whirl or Swerve spotlight.

For whatever reason they don't seem to be doing them anymore.

>>97417372
I don't think they've been seen since the beginning of Dark Cybertron.

A Whirl spotlight would be good shit.

I just wanna know what makes him tick (pun intended)

My main beef with Devastation: DODGING WAS TOO IMPORTANT.

Three hits while playing on the hardest setting, and you're dead.

I am the WORST when it comes to avoiding damage.
>>
so when does everyone think that megatron will come back to this universe? before unicron? during unicron? after unicron carrying some piping hot energon in a cup?
>>
>>97417741
probably right before some important shit is suppose to go down so his entrance will cause a 6 month long explanation as to what went down while his dumb warlord ass was gone

He might show up during Power of the Primes, since it's likely he could be remolded from the Abominus/Dinobot molds that have been shown. That said, there is an EXCELLENT 3rd party Piranacon...If you've got $600 anyway.
>>
I know Cyclonus is the Unicron guy usually but I like what they have done with him in IDW outside of making him Tailgate's mommy boy friend so I hope he doesnt get brainwashed. or if he does whirl knocks him out of it. because I like him as a "good" guy
>>
>>97417847
Thanks, anon!
It'd be cool if he did get an official release, but damn, that 3rd party one is nice.

That's right. We might see Galvatron again, and the sweeps/Scourge.
I'd love to see a more G1-Cyclonus, myself, but I doubt that'd happen.
>>
>>97418047
isnt galavatons head decorating the presidents lawn?

Only downside is it can't hold the 6th member gun well. The weight of the individual figures is pretty hefty.
>>
I'm vaguely aware of what's happening in Lost Light... Loved season 1 MTMTE but fell off when they started doing Hasbro Crossovers.

I heard Fangry buried Tailgate and Tailgate hasn't come back. Has Cyclonus reacted to that?
>>
>>97418371
no. no one knows yet except fangry
>>
>>97418383
Someone should be wondering about Kaput at some point at least.

>>97417372
I heard somewhere about makin new spotlight.

>>97418412
It still baffles me that they'd leave all that technology behind with Decepticons in the area. That has to be one of the most boneheaded things Rodimus has ever done. Sure he's an idiot but how does that explain Ultra Magnus? Oh, right, he was having a post-Megatron breakup crisis. Jesus Christ ...

At this point I can only imagine that during the inevitable Unicron crossover wackiness suddenly Tailgate materializes. Turns out that radiation only made his body adapt to become stronger until he punches Unicron the fuck out. The entire Unicron.
>>
>>97419037
What if he assimilates with the world mold?

Rumor floating around is that Unicron won't have his usual herald/harbringer pack of Galvatron/Cyclonus/Scourge/Sweeps but instead will rip off Blackest Night and have him reanimate scores of dead Transformers to serve as his minions.

>It still baffles me that they'd leave all that technology behind with Decepticons in the area.
I thought Brainstorm had to tear alot of it apart to make their transporter and then the DJD destroyed alot of other stuff when they came in and killed the Necrobot?
>>
>>97419271
Tailgate just has to punch it with just the right amount of force to make it work again. Always does the trick.
>>
>>97419203
>and have him reanimate scores of dead Transformers to serve as his minions
That would be baller as fuck. Especially if they can roll this into the new 'bots being reborn so we can perhaps get SOME of the fucking 'bots killed by IDW back.

The Necrobot as a Herald of Unicron.
