So why does seibertron hate 3rd parties ?

Do you collect other toys besides Transformers? Maybe you've got a Masters of the Universe collection you'd like to show off, or maybe you like Thundercats, Voltron, G.I.Joe, Power Rangers, Star Wars, Wrestling, or any of the various comic book toy lines. Please keep the discussions here to non-Transformers toy lines.

If you're referring to the change in colours then no, Mods/Admins are green, news crew are blue, and those rarely sighted RPG folks are a different shade of green.

That being said, ALL staff are technically Moderators and can act accordingly. For some reason I keep getting messages from certain news crew members saying "You can deal with it". Image


I wasn't referring to it no. Just pointing out another of Rated X's overstatements.

The name of this website is the 1984-2007 Japanese name of Planet Cybertron. It is supposed to be spoken as "Say-ber-tron", so the podcast guys have been saying correctly all along.



Im not doubting you. But I think Ill stick with the pronunciation from the American cartoon. I say tomato, you say tamato, I say potato, you say patato, etc. But this is an English website based out of America. I'm not sure where the podcast guy is from, but Ryan pronounced it "Cybertron" when he introduced himself to me at Botcon. I would think it's his call how the website's name is officially pronounced. Am I wrong ?
Ryan says "Say-ber-tron" in reference to this site all the time. He says it on the podcast, he says it at BotCon, he says it whenever he feels like it. You are right that this is an American website, but it is one that uses an old Japanese name for its name.

And let me reiterate, this site could be called Cybertron.com if Ryan had just been first to register the domain name. It's currently owned by an individual who would like to sell it, but wants too much. Plus Ryan has done a ton of work to brand Seibertron at this point. But Hasbro nor Takara actually own www.cybertron.com, the spelling and pronunciation of this site's name have nothing to so with skirting the legal system.

Don't know how old are you but I'm 40. 30+ years ago when I was a kid, I did pretty much the same thing you said above. But now, same street when I grew up, even I can barely walk freely on it without constantly watching for traffics. The park and trees I used to go to were gone. Nowadays, kids were kidnapped on their own front yard. Kids bring real guns but not BB guns to school. Many times I was wondering too that how come same height when I fall from a tree or a roof, I was totally fine but why kids now got hurt so much. But then I remembered constantly seeing few of my classmates on crutches. Not blaming anything or anyone here. It's just the people and societies are changing and we just have to adopt and change with them. Yes, I miss the good old days. But I can imagine when my kids grow up, they will talk to their children the same thing: "yes, I miss my good old days".

As of the topic, shouldn't we be happy this franchise is growing to different varieties? Yes, I buy third party stuffs. But I'm annoyed seeing some specific companies products but some people love them. Same thing, I totally don't care and don't like Takara's GO! line and AM line but some people love them. I like this site and this is Ryan's site, I will just adopt it.

Well Im 37 so you only got 3 years on me buddy ! Children have been kidnapped or shot up long before the 80's when we grew up. Unlike you, I dont believe intense paranoia is the solution to the problem. Ive turned down the oppurtunity to have kids a couple times because I refuse to raise my kid by the standards of todays society. The way 10 year olds get treated like 5 year olds and teenagers get treated like 10 year olds make me sick. I couldnt imagine getting reported to the police by a neighbor for leaving a 12 year old home alone for a couple hours. That's what video games are for. Who are they to tell me how I should raise my kid ? Having kids is not my cup of tea anyways.

On topic: It's Ryan's site and he can run it however he wants. But I think it's safe to say his opinions on 3rd parties are among the minority. I think more people care about what looks cool on their shelf than they do about the ethics of producing homages.

I liked his rant about how I was wrong comparing Seibertron.com selling advertising space makes them a 3rd party -vs- a TV station doing the same thing but they're not a 3rd party.

Oh wait, that never happened 'cause he chose not to respond to it.

The least he could do is actually quote the person he is pontificating to.

He keeps using the word sissies, he either doesn't know what the word means or just doesn't care about hurting people by using it. According to Rated X's definition of "masculinity" i grew up a "sissy". I grew up on a farm(I lived with my grandparents during the school year) or on the base at Stuttgart(where my father was stationed) so I had a very regimented childhood, I couldn't come and go as I pleased. I was told what to do and when to do it, there wasn't much time for play. I'd rather be a "sissy" any day than live one moment as Rated X.

Does anyone remember cap guns ? Do those things even exist anymore ? What happened to the good old days ? Yes, parents have become over paranoid and raise their kids like sissies. And it has nothing to do with grown men collecting robots. Its all about letting kids grow up and not trying to preserve them in a toddler state of mind just to please society. Being a kid in this day and age must suck. I wouldnt trade all the freedom I had growing up for any stupid PS4 or XBox so mommy can keep me on a leash all day.

Wow that made me laugh so hard I think I hurt something.

Rated x I don't know if you're so obtuse because you lack empathy, you're trolling, or you just don't understand why what you say is ignorant. I just know I'm glad I'm not you.



Well Im 37 so you only got 3 years on me buddy ! Children have been kidnapped or shot up long before the 80's when we grew up. Unlike you, I dont believe intense paranoia is the solution to the problem. Ive turned down the oppurtunity to have kids a couple times because I refuse to raise my kid by the standards of todays society. The way 10 year olds get treated like 5 year olds and teenagers get treated like 10 year olds make me sick. I couldnt imagine getting reported to the police by a neighbor for leaving a 12 year old home alone for a couple hours. That's what video games are for. Who are they to tell me how I should raise my kid ? Having kids is not my cup of tea anyways.

On topic: It's Ryan's site and he can run it however he wants. But I think it's safe to say his opinions on 3rd parties are among the minority. I think more people care about what looks cool on their shelf than they do about the ethics of producing homages.



????????

He quoted the wrong one. It was a response to mine.

Superbowl commercials make the NFL millions. How much money does seibertron.com's advertisments make for Hasbro ??? (crickets chirping) Suddenly all the talk about ethics gets flushed down the toilet... So whats in your wallet ???

Since you have no idea what the answer is why cop the superior attitude? Also why would the NFL make any money off of the commercials shown during the game?

Do you do Yoga? Gymnastics? Seriously, you must be pretty flexible the way you stretch and twist.

:lol: :lol: :lol: :lol:

I NEVER SAID ANYTHING ABOUT THE NFL

You bring up a ANNUAL event. I'm talking about every day retailers who sell Transformers.

Can you honestly sit there and sprout off to EVERYONE that a TV station is a third party company if they run an advertisement for Walmart selling Transformers?

Can you do that?

As for what's in my wallet ... well ... why is that any of your concern?

-edit-
Actually njb brings up a good point. Can you PROVE the NFL makes money from the super bowl advertising? Because a quick read seems to suggest it's NBC that rakes in all that money.

-Second edit-
Whoops, he's wrong again. :lol: :lol: :lol:

He keeps using the word sissies, he either doesn't know what the word means or just doesn't care about hurting people by using it. According to Rated X's definition of "masculinity" i grew up a "sissy". I grew up on a farm(I lived with my grandparents during the school year) or on the base at Stuttgart(where my father was stationed) so I had a very regimented childhood, I couldn't come and go as I pleased. I was told what to do and when to do it, there wasn't much time for play. I'd rather be a "sissy" any day than live one moment as Rated X.

Mistakes happen. I get a lot of responses which means love me or hate me, I keep a thread from becoming a snoozefest. You seem to have misunderstood my interpretation of the word "sissy". It wasnt meant to be homophobic or chovenistic. It was simply an attack on soccer moms who wont let their little munchkin grow the f**k up. Society is screwed up. I remember once at my job a parent complained because nobody asked for her permission to help her 19 year old son. She threw a fit and said he is still a minor until he turns 21. We all laughed in her face....true story. I suppose where ever you live in middle america, you have 18 year old boy scouts and chaperones for a teen date to the movies. Im not gonna say BS like that doesnt exist here in Miami, but not everybody thinks like that around here.

Don't we technically help Hasbro and Takara (and IDW) make money, as we essentially give them free advertising for their products? :-?

Sure, the site makes some money from its ads, but they're mostly from retailers, and not manufacturing companies.

Edit: Hang on, just re-read stuff, let me get this straight.

You're complaining that children are not raised according to standards (or atandarfs, if you're me) that you had in your time, and the blame goes to he current generation of parents, right?

But you don't want to raise a child yourself, because you don't want them to conform to society as it stands right now, correct?

Whoops, he's wrong again. :lol: :lol: :lol:

And exactly how do you think NBC won the bid for a superbowl contract ? Chucky Cheese tokens ??? They fronted NFL the most money to win the contract. Same thing with Wrestlemania. You gotta pay Vince thousands if you want to show his pay per views in a sports bar. You aint gonna make ten thousand on drinks by using his IP unless you give him a cut. He screens addresses that order pay per views and sues violators all the time. So time for you to stop playing dumb and answer the question Ive been suggesting all along. Do you think its ethical for this website to profit off of the use of Hasbro's IP without giving them a cut ? If you say yes, its cool no shame to your game. But dont cry foul when 3rd parties do the same thing through different means. You aint fooling nobody when you preach ethics. If you get paid for your services to this site, would you consider donating a portion to Hasbro ?
