    fishbug:

    Seeing humanizations of Prime Starscream that are young and handsome makes me wonder if I dreamed the time in “Shadowzone” that Knock Out couldn’t find him a replacement arm because he was so old

    #i feel like the formula for an accurate Starscream would be to take someone who was a bit of a pretty boy in his early twenties #then add on roughly a decade of stressful living and a stupid goatee

    yes perfect

    100% agree.  Totally how I see him except add on more than a decade.  Also this probably happens occasionally, at least within humanscream’s imagination…

    Someone wrote a review of BB on ff.net that just said

    guest
    please dont pare knock out and and breakdown gay storys are weird

    I’M LAUGHING SO HARD I CAN’T BREATHE HELP ME

    Well, friend, I think you know what you must do.  Tracks needs a cameo in Breaking Barriers where her creators are spelled out in no uncertain terms.  Dedicate it to guest.

    Then again, despite the latent homophobia, perhaps guest did not wish for a scene where Knockout and Breakdown have their paintjobs or outer plating sliced off.  I agree with this anti-paring measure.  Poor BD’s chassis has suffered enough and KO doesn’t need any more indignities either.

    But seriously, now is the time to gay it up, bb.

    it shall be done.

    BREAKING BARRIERS PART XI

    Read More

    Friend, I am sad that I won’t be beta-ing any more of your chapters for Breaking Barriers, since it has now come to such a glorious and satisfactory conclusion.  It’s everything I’ve ever wanted, and sets a new standard for TF fiction.  I especially like how you didn’t forget about Vee!  I think this is the greatest chapter of all, and that FF.net and Guest will fall in love with it immediately!  They can’t resist the power of gay robots and baby robots this strong!

    This is beautiful, and dare I say it, epic.  A story for the ages.

    AND I CAN’T STOP LAUGHING HELP THERE ARE TEARS IN MY EYES, FRIEND.

    He kills me.

    Best part of the movie.  Perfect baby.

     


  4. —SPOILERS— Predacons Rising : a long fight scene interspersed by all the wrong character development.

    Except for Knock Out, who was ABSOLUTELY FLAWLESS.

    Also there is a fountain of babies.

     

  5. mrbutts:

    I think this is literally the only reason I tried to make a humanized Knockout


    Theirs was a love meant to be.

  6. MAGICAL GIRL MAY IS THE BEST MONTH.
    An Orion roleplayer has commented on Orion’s ongoing disbelief as the situation spirals out of control from pic set 1 to pic set 2.  Well, Orion :

    If you can’t beat ‘em, join ‘em.

     


  7. Bibby Dump

    It’s another preview of this thing that will probably come out not at New Years but we can all still hope.  Because look at this effort.  Bibbies take a lot of effort.  After this, backgrounds will be so half-hearted y’all will be surprised.  And these are just the bibbies that show up in episode 1, a fraction of future bibbies. (except starscream actually doesn’t show up) (I know you’re heartbroken at that prospect but bear with the storytelling.  ep 1 and 2 have to introduce a lot of new characters.)








    And if I saved that png right, swoov is partially transparent.

    Next time on bibby dump : the femmeceptor you’ve all been waiting for, and a Driftaboo.

     

  8. Breaking Barriers isn’t even written yet by the amazing Lizwuzthere and already I have done fanart.  Yay these silhouette posters.

     

  9. re-con stands for Reconsider/Reconstruction.  Aka “what Obfuscobble dreams of happening instead of season 2.”  Followers have seen a little fanfic of it before, including Breakdown admitting feelings to Orion, TC and Warp giving Airachnid the smackdown, and Megatron and Orion reminiscing about the old days.  Well there is so much more and it only gets stranger.  So much stranger.  But I wanted to draw promotional pictures for it like Lizwuzthere does for her fanfics.  So voila.

    Y’all will have to wait for the big reveal about Perceptor, Drift, Blurr, and Soundwave’s brood.  But I can tell you now that Roddy in this reconstruction is an orange vehicon with a unique head sculpt.  Just to whet your curiosity.

     

  10. Commission for Inomuiro.

     


  11. ALSO I hope that while picking apart Silas, Knock Out FINDS BREAKDOWN’S SPARK STILL DIMLY ONLINE.  And then brings him back.

    Yes.

    You see, Breakdown didn’t go grey.  He could still be in there.

    Please.

     

  12. littlecorona: There’s Japanese Dubbed clips of Knock Out and Breakdown.

    kisachi-tf: the voice are… well least the Starscream voice I really don’t like it

    Starscream’s voice is excerable. Much like the Korean one, the casting staff went too high.  The whole point of Prime Starscream’s voice, using Steve Blum for it, is for it to be deep and gravely while still OCCASIONALLY climbing up into high pitched hysteria.  Starscream’s voice should rumble around you like an encroaching storm.

    Knock Out has a great voice.  I even like his eye-catch talking about BEAUTIFUL TRANSMORMMMMMeh.  The ONLY SAVING GRACE.

    in fact, I really don’t like so much the japanese version of transformers prime, in this clip you will know why:

    - Starscream singing… srly ?! why he sing meanwhile kills Philip?

    My brain has yet to come to terms with that happening.  Because i know when I’m a feared commander sucking the life force out of a subordinate to teach my generals a lesson, I sing “SWEETLY SWEETLY SLURPY SLURPY SWEETLY HU-HU!”  Is this a reference to gurefuru chuuchuu or something?  It really is part of the problem you identified that nothing is allowed to be silent.

    - Breakdown saying his name ALL the time

    I think you mean WAR BREAKDOWNNNNN (maybe this is branding?)

    - Knockout didn’t whistled … PREPARE FOR SURGERY!!
    - the unnecesary dialogue, in every time that in the original are quiet
    - ARMS UP!!!! TORANSFORMMU!! all the time

    Apparently you can’t transform anything without saying TRANSFORM.  Even missiles gotta say WAR BREAKDOWN MISSILE FIRE and then TRANSFORM

    at least I like the “gomeeen” of Breakdown for beaten KO with his hammer

    Oh gosh that was cute!  And very in character for Breakdown.  On the other hand, I’m not sure about the translation of “fight?” “mmm, drive.”  as “yaru ka?” “iya, tettai da.”  I would have gone with “tatakau?”/”tuduku?” “uun, unten.”/”uun, tettai.”  Because I enjoyed the one word clipped nature of the original abd because Knock out should always be going mmmmmmmnnnnnnnn

    I could go on more about the japanese dub and how I dislike it, and how at many times the translation is awkward, but I won’t.  For an example that sticks to me personally, Knock Out and Starscream’s exchange about ground modes lost an important point: Starscream says in Japanese “I NEEEEEEEVER understood why a decepticon would choose automobile for his vehicle mode.  Flying is much cooler, right?”  which loses the delicious headcanon making implications of “why choose automobile when he COULD have flight”

    That said, watching these Japanese clips and trying my hardest to understand them while coparing to my memory of the originals has been a greatly satisfying challenge.

  13. Anonymous asked you : “What the fuck is wrong with you?!” & “Hey Knock Out, nice job pissing yourself in that episode.”

    askkobd:

    There was me (that is, Knock Out) and my three commanders (that is, Megatron, Dreadwing and Hardshell), and they sat in the Lowgrade Bar trying to make up their processors what to do with me this evening.  The Lowgrade Bar served lowgrade plus : lowgrade plus verdigris, or brake slag, or synth-en, which was what they were drinking.  This would sharpen them up and make them ready for a bit of the old medicviolence.

  14. A non-snarky summary of many of my thoughts on TFP and fandom lies below, after I deal with this juvenile anon.
