The original toy was a water squirter, so I always assumed it was supposed to be spraying stomach acid at enemies; obviously, this was depicted as a standard plasma blast on the show, but it's pretty in-line with the more visceral early concepts behind Beast Wars, so probably not too far off from the original intent of the toy.

>origin of Decepticon faction discussion

Personally, I think Aligned and Cyberverse have the best take- that the Decepticons originally started as a political movement to effect positive change on Cybertron, but Megatron gradually lost himself in the power and conquest, condensing a faction of discontents and activists down into an army of warriors taking what they want. All the ‘regular’ Decepticons either fled when the faction got too extreme for them, were culled for not being extreme enough, or are kept in line by fear.

It’s why RID15 feels like such a wasted opportunity, since a lot of the Alchemor prisoners have the hallmarks of being from before the Great War really started up. How so? They’re mental cases, petty thieves, absurd anarchists, overeager brawlers, or even just disabled/strange condition sufferers who are too much trouble to deal with. None of which would generally seem to be good soldier material. Any ‘trouble maker’ like Megatron is labeled a Decepticon.

It’s ultimately similar to a discussion on predestination, particularly regarding Lucifer. (And this is relevant because a lot of TF lore mimics layman Christian theology). Lucifer wasn’t destined to fall just because God said so, he was destined to fall because his pride made such a fate inevitable. In the same way, Decepticons weren’t created to be insane war machines; they had a long and complicated history that ended with them mostly being insane war machines. It’s not that ONLY Decepticons can fly, it’s that most pre war fliers were Seekers and most Seekers followed their commander Starscream. There’s just enough nuance to make exceptions possible even when most things follow the trends.

>this is relevant because a lot of TF lore mimics layman Christian theology
I like both TFs and theology and I have no idea what you're talking about. Also double predestination's a bad take but this isn't really the place.

Tangentially, G2's Cybertronians were interesting but also raised some ill-fitting implications, what with robo-satan. Autobot/Decepticon distinctions being something political or otherwise voluntary is fine, and if it's something involuntary, there's still good examples of people switching sides or having/losing morality, from numerous continuities, such that we're safely able to ignore "some were made good, others were made bad" dichotomies in the world of lore as well as real life.

Well i like the idea that decepticons is far older faction than autobots

Decepticons warriors were the ones that freed cybertron from quintesson/unicorn/whatever and brought the golden era,
however the faction become more ruthless and corrupt overtime.
it also explains why decepticons have overtechs like spacebridges, transforming cities and hundreds of WMD.

meanwhile the religious aspects can just stick to autobots and prime with all those 13 primes/knights/whatever and their hundreds of relics

I’m talking about the generic idiot’s understanding of these story tropes, since I was raised without religion and I’m pretty sure Simon Furman isn’t super religious either. As long as it sort of lines up when you squint at it, then anyone who knows OF those stories can make the connection.

>>8984302
I disagree. I think both factions forming at roughly equivalent times is best for maintaining the idea that the Great War is a legitimate conflict over how to govern Cybertron and other areas of influence. If there’s no choice to be made then you can’t in good faith argue that they actually have free will- otherwise the logical solution to deal with defeated Decepticons would be mass executions. At the end of the day I just want a story premise that is as open ended and free form as possible while still being logically consistent. Decepticons being built by Quintessons/exclusively for war limits storytelling. You can’t really have sympathetic machines designed only for war, or warlike Autobots like Warpath, or peaceful/timid Decepticons. You can’t really have characters that cross faction lines simply because it doesn’t make sense with their mass produced programming.

Since both authors and readers can’t actually understand compelling aliens as anything but humans with caveats, that’s what they are. Transformers are just large metal humans who can turn into other things, live forever, and have far more advanced technology. In every other way they mimic our society, from personalities and motives to conflicts and self image.

W-welp
Strangely enough, I've been largely fine with how religion and gods have been treated in TF media. Aside from the Thirteen which I never looked that much into.
>the Great War is a legitimate conflict over how to govern Cybertron and other areas of influence
I think I partly had the factions to be political as well as national. Canada burned down the White House long ago, but it doesn't necessarily mean that every Canadian trooper right now wants to destroy America. At least, that's how I explain it since I can't otherwise fix misprinted faction symbols.

I could slap that out with "it's a giant toy commercial made with kids in mind" which is why the whole "manufactured" thing was even done but not gonna go with that as it's a cop out answer.

What I will say is (the way I took it, as a kid) those early bots were strict in programming but just like how they over thrown their Quintesson creators they simply changed as time went on which explains the war of factions in the first place.

Like the animatrix how the machines over thrown their human masters, the bots grown smarter and overthrown their masters but eventually saw the other side as having differences and could not co-exist.

I would like a more mature story, similar how IDW's take on megatron's origin was done only without the eventual degeneration of the god damn story throughout the connected universe (I loved that mini-story but everything else set in the same time line started sucking worse and worse)

Just got Huffer. Didn't like it as much as I should, mostly due to a few minor annoyances:

-Peg for the rifle fits on the hand, but the peg itself is too big, which means you can't plug it into other ports without forcing it, and the hands can't grab any other weapons since they're too small for it
-That cab section tilts up in vehicle mode. I made sure to transform it correctly and it still ends up that way. Saw a few reviews and they all seem to have that issue.

Sure, but then ALL Decepticons who turn have to play by that rule book.

If, instead, a series or line or population were created/trained to be killing machines and one broke from that mold? You’d have all the emotional weight of your example without needing to lock down Decepticon origins. It may seem pedantic to make the distinction, but the explanation that allows for more stories/archetypes to exist while maintaining lore/stakes/consistency/etc. is objectively better.

I really like the toys of that line, the skinny ones like Arcee and Prowl and Blurr and OilSlick were all great. They really did an amazing job of translating the cartoony designs into functioning toys, the only ones I ever had problems with were Swindle and Bumblebee prematurely losing a limb.
>>
>>8985417
Masterpiece Star Saber is already to scale with CHUG and it sold like shit even in Japan so Hasbro is probably reluctant. If anything he'll be a Takara Selects like the Seacons. The question is which figure can they retool into Saber?
>>
>>8985470
Nothing. We can only assume it would fit well in the Commander class since Jetfire's pretty big and is about as complex as Star Saber should be. Taking into account all the extra accessories and the giant backpack, they might be able to scrounge up a deluxe sized or smaller Saber

They'd have been better if the baseformers were worth buying. Guess they're still compatible with the newer stuff, too. I like to use them as gunner seats in weaponizer builds. All in all, they've actually gotten more useful, if you're like me and still bend over for Headmasters.

It's still surprising how Hardhead was the only TR figure that actually bothered covering the seat for the for ridable weapon. They just didn't care for everything else.

Sort of related, that anon asking for a Matrix Buster, Hardhead's cannon has space for the ER Matrix inside the seat area.

>>8985954
Sort of, on newer stuff, you can technically leave a TR figure on Chromedome's driver seat. The line in general had many cockpits that allowed you to leave the driver inside, among them:

-Doublecross (and derivatives)
-Black Shadow and Overlord
-Windblade
-Hardhead
-Highbrow
-I think Hot Rod allowed it
-Brawn/Outback
-Galvatron
-Laser Rod Optimus/Octane

>>8986735
That wasn't my point. I am probably reaching with this but my point is that Germans don't want to associate anything with war, especially after losing two wars in a row and being recognized for doing heinous things in the past. It may have been 60+ years from then but some people still haven't moved on from it. And to someone like Volkswagen and Porsche who are quintessentially Germans, they see promoting toys and franchise about war the same as glorifying war which they've been taught is a very very very bad thing. I disagree with that because its all in the past but they stubbornly stick by their principles.

Wait those four are considered shelf warmers? Why? Sounds like Autobot propaganda to me, even if there’s a conspicuous monstrous Autobot in that group.

Also SS86 will probably have a Windcharger to pad the deluxes while the voyagers are Constructicons and the leaders are Dinobots. Even if his only role was as a corpse. We haven’t gotten a proper Windcharger since when, RtS maybe?

There's been three Windchargers in CHUG: RtS, Thrilling 30 and Titans Return. He's ironically one of the best represented minibots. Not that I wouldn't mind a redo anyway, since the TR mold doesn't have a waist twist or ankles, or wrists.

>>8986834
lol yeah I had to look up the name myself, but I distinctly remember alley-vipers on the box art and it was supposed to be some kind of urban pacification vehicle iirc. fucking sweet toy though. it could drop mines out of the back and the turret could raise up which would allow the twin mini-guns to swing around to the front. loved that thing.

No idea on the others, but repaints always seem to linger on shelves. It should be noted that kids CAN look up a transformer to see how the old toy/character model looked like, and they can pass on it for the same reasons most anons here would.

Back when TRU was still around, I would sometimes hear kids talking about figures, and they'd bring up the same shit we would. They even brought up how the TLK Primus toy was ridiculously overpriced and they could just buy the old one on Ebay for 50 or less.

I want Quake too, but back then I didn't care as much about randos as I do now. Warmed up to Krok reading that some anons did, but he's really mostly just good for croc mode, and Twinferno's a bit underwhelming. Triggerhappy was kind of lonely but I eventually got his buds at a good price. (and now all three of them are in boxes, should I get their little buddies argh)

>>8986808
FUCK he'd made a good standalone Scorponok

>>8986835

Hear hear. I know some strongly disagree, but from personal observation: Decepticons do not sell as well as Autobots. I don't know why, but I've often seen more Decepticons than Autobots on shelves. Also the wave 3-4 wavemates were
>Hot Rod and Getaway (Trigger and Twin)
>Perceptor, Topspin, Kup (Krok, Quake)
so the other guys (and no-paint Getaway?) were way more popular. Poor Getaway.
But I hear you, Decepticons deserve more love too.
>SS86 Windcharger
Think he only appeared as a corpse/casualty in the movie, next to Wheeljack..

I hope they shelfwarm so I can get a cheap Devastator.

He didn't get to do much in the show. His one claim to fame was using his magnetic powers to make a fake Menasor out of his fellow Autobots. This was in the last episode or so of S2.

It was like that for a lot of the 84 cast. The 85-86 characters mostly got some explicit spotlight (to sell their new toys) which displayed their characters or powers, but the 84 cast were just kind of thrown out there. Characters like Windcharger, Trailbreaker, Bluestreak, Skywarp and Thundercracker and even Prowl and Sideswipe were mostly crowd-filled characters and their claims to fame come more from one or two specific moments or from their toy bios (or later media).

G1 megatron was mostly a mix of romulans and lex Luthor. He was always trying to acquire more energy or build a doomsday device to kill the autobots.

You can check the writing credits. It's mostly comic book people and some pulp EU trek guys.

Galvatron was made crazy after the movie just to spice things up.

Megatron being a military genius is just revisisionism. At the time he was a cold greedy comic book villain that wanted energy instead of money.

It was nice to catch a spotlight episode of a particular bot, sometimes endearing you to them particularly. Golden Lagoon's one of my sad faves. I know Powerglide and Blaster were memorable and likable enough even apart from his episode, though.
>mostly crowd-filled characters and their claims to fame come more from one or two specific moments or from their toy bios
Yeah... did the seekers even get to use their powers at all? Wish season 1 was longer and they got neat episodes sort of giving them better airtime, so to speak. Can't imagine why a kid would go for Skywarp or Thundercracker beyond their bios/powers or favourite colour. Even the comics, having even more toys to sell, couldn't always give folks much spotlight, but some at least got neat self-intro infodumps.
>tfw there'll never be a fanmade cartoon/comic where each bot, who's someone's fave out there, gets some well-deserved TLC and spotlight

Wanted a Bruticus for the longest time, and sort of had hope in hearing that the G2 colours weren't selling well in the States. Got myself Abominus to feed the comboner itch, but the G1 Combaticons might be my fave unit, at least aesthetically. G2 colours look alright too, somehow.
>>8986897
I think even a few millimeters of outer crest could have saved that mold, or at least colouring to separate the outside from the inside, like in the bottom right image. Even squinting and trying to take it as an original head or character, aesthetically it's just... argh. I'm a sucker for legends and minibots, so it bums me out seeing minibots getting shafted.
Not that I care much for IDW Tailgate, and having only slight warm feelings about G1, he looks a bit nicer than Windcharger. See, I have dislikes too!

Absolutely relatable.
Also his doubts about the Decepticon cause was something even as far as back as 1984, huh. If we had more episodes of pre-movie G1, maybe we would have gotten a Blitzwing moment with him.

Sorta counting my bots before they hatch, but anyone know how I can characterize Siege Prime as more tired/weary version from the future, without going full murderBay? This is in hopes that I'll eventually get Earthrise/Kingdom Prime for cheap, and have two likable but different Primes. I've seen the first, ROTF, and TLK but I think not the other ones, and it's hard to remember these movies in general. Was thinking that Rung could be a time/universal portal maker with his two-pronged blast effects. I'd have to explain why he's opting for his gun and axe (and banner if you flip it out behind the cab) instead of a trailer. Right now he's my sole prime other than the smol RTS and spinny classics ones.

>>8986921
>they're vastly superior
Honestly I'm torn. The G1/Hasbro/Takara colours are more "fitting" of a special ops squad, but as a comboner there's something endearing about the G2 colours.

>>8987242
Even though it's horribly ugly, I can excuse the backpack when the goal was to make an accurate robot mode with a good likelihood that part of it comes off a la ER Arcee.

What I can't excuse is that chest panel though. Maybe you can angle it better in person, I don't know, but it looks like she has a saggy rack the way it is there.

T30 is still the best G1 Arcee, because despite still having a massive backpack she at least uses some of her alt mode rather than hiding beneath it in vehicle mode.

>>8987242
Even though I still think she's way overpriced and has a massive backpack, pointy chin and saggy tits, she definitely seems like one of the better recent masterpieces. I at least haven't heard of any QC nightmares

Yeah the chin doesn't look nearly as bad as it did in the initial prototype, I wonder if they changed the face a little bit or if the first pics just looked worse. The legs do look nice, if I had any interest in MP scale I'd get the eventual KO
>>
>>8987242
>https://tfwiki.net/wiki/Arcee_(G1)/toys

>Much like MP-46 Blackwidow, Arcee's design hyper-emphasizes feminine stylings and enhanced poseability, also extending to her hands. Unlike MP-46, however, Arcee's stylization goes to the point of neglecting screen accuracy, having a sculpt which forgoes the animation model's wider, slightly boxy stomach and waist while also giving her a much wider (and lower) bust. Not to mention the extremely arched back.

Frank wrote this, didn't he?
>>

Agree with >>8987260 T30/Legends is still straight-up the best arcee still, even has a better ass than MP, all it would need is better articulation and 5mm hands and it's perfect

T30 is the better toy. It's cheaper and makes more of an effort to use the robot parts in the altmode.

However because of that, her lower half makes some compromises. MP Arcee is all sweet unfettered curves.
