[up] Well, that's to be expected. One can only rehash G1 so many times.

How can they rehash G1 if they've only had one main G1 comic that soon evolved into its own thing that lasted over a decade? I struggle to call Last Stand of the Wreckers or More Than Meets The Eye G1 based.

Even the newest comic is different feeling from G1.

[up][up] Next to Optimus Prime, Starscream has the highest morality rate of any Transformers. And it's usually coupled with resurrection because he's too popular to go away that easily. After Starscream, it's usually Megatron given how much he dies and then comes back to life. Ironically, despite his Memetic Loser status, Cliffjumper's death rate isn't as high as people make it out to be. He only died in two major Transformers media, Prime and Bumblebee. Granted, he also died in IDW during the Unicron event but that only bumps it to three.

[up][up] It doesnít help that those 2 examples both had him as a Sacrificial Lamb.

When your in something just to die it can wind up sticking to people.

How many times has Jazz died? I think Bay said the live action films were the first time Jazz had been killed.

Oct 14th 2019 at 3:18:54 AM

I believe the only time. Both him and Bumblebee became Out of Focus after the '86 movie, while Optimus, Ironhide and Ratchet were killed in the movie. So they chose to kill Jazz because it was less expected and they thought he would be the most likable between him, Ironhide and Ratchet. In the end I think Ironhide edged him out in the first film due to his Dirty Harry persona, which ended up giving him more screentime to make his death in DOTM more notable. Ratchet barely got anything until his death in AOE.

Honestly would've felt more for Movie Jazz dying if the best friend/soul brotha/loyal soldier dynamic between him and Optimus was played up more.

In the movie, Jazz came off as more of a heroic street punk than a second-in-command. Honestly, if Optimus hadn't stated his rank and function, I suspect there would be a lot more arguing about that too.

In the comic adaptation, Optimus arrived just in time to see Jazz die, and Jazz's death was the opening of the Megatron vs Optimus fight, with Prime letting out a Big "NO!" as if an actual brother of his just died, and him fighting with Tranquil Fury against Megatron, his Berserk Button having been pressed.

Well, Jazz in the Marvel Comics has been offlined a few times. Once by an imposter Optimus Prime, and later by the cosmically-powered Starscream. Of course, that didn't put him down for long, with Jazz being revived by Pretender technology.

[up][up] Well first off the movies have to actually give a dynamic to the Bots in the first place.

Itís noticable that it took Ao E for the Autobots to majorly interact with each other & it was mostly just them threatening & calling Bumblebee a shitty leader every chance they get.

In this episode of Transformers: Cyberverse, "Parley", the Autobots and Decepticons are about to agree on a truce! Will they do it?

Meanwhile, Slipstream escapes to tell the others about Starscream's maniacal plan...

Prepare your tissues, everyone!

Why do you post in both threads at the same time?

Oct 20th 2019 at 10:25:14 AM

[up]Because it also has to do with Transformers: Cyberverse, and I couldn't find another better reason other than hoping you'll talk about this.

At the same time? Ha ha ha! It's usually a difference of a second!

Actually since its brought up, I don't think we need a Cyberverse thread.

Like it doesn't get much traffic & this thread functions as the main Transformers thread which includes Cyberverse topics so having 2 threads feel unnecessary.

[up]Illogical.

Since, for example, Marvel movies like Avengers: Endgame have their own threads (spoiler ones, I know, I know), why shouldn't Cyberverse? After all, here this is a thread about all things Transformers, not about a specific show. Also, not to mention that there are separate threads for G4 and G1-G3 My Little Pony. And also many threads aren't constantly active, and it's not just Cyberverse. So, my logical conclusion is that the Cyberverse thread must be still kept alive, and problem of why the Cyberverse thread isn't all that active is because a) Nobody cares about this show at all because it's too niche and not mainstream enough and b) If there aren't any things interesting enough like Starscream back from the dead or Slipstream being killed by Bludgeon, causing everyone to fight and make Optimus Prime failing again to reach a truce between the Autobots and the Decepticons in "Parley", nobody will talk about it until the next mind-blowing turn of events happens.

And yes, I like Cyberverse Shockwave. And yes, I spoke like him a bit.

Studio Series Devastator's head sculpt revealed as hidden inside Mixmaster's cab. Absolutely gorgeous, and it's theorized Scavenger's treads will help complete the turbine look of the neck and shoulders.

[up] A joke that wasn't super funny, mind you.

On the subject of Studio Series, someone on YouTube got their mitts on SS 2007 Megatron and reviewed him.

We have in-hand images from that review and...

I need him.

("Bu-! But he has the wrong chest!")

Yeah, I actually don't care about that. If anything, that might have been on purpose to apologize for SS ROTF Megatron having a hollow robot mode.

I found the joke funny, but I think it would've been better if it make sense with the actual vehicles used. Though it's common for Transformers to pull weapons out of nowhere that weren't clearly on their person as is. Some of the works make a better attempt at making sure the design flows realistically. Beast Wars actually did a fairly good job at using all their parts as is. You'd still see some blasters here or there that weren't obvious, though. RID(anime) and Cybertron felt like they did a great job with making the weapons feel like part of the character, but unleashed. Armada did this very naturally too.
