Let's see those Preds. Hopefully we'll be getting some Beast Wars repaints out of this, though so far it doesn't look like it (other than Ultra Mammoth who we already knew about).

Translation: We're going to sell you expensive repainted toys.

I can see them repainting Universe Dinobot into Grimlock. But for the rest of them, I couldn't tell you.

:BANG_HEAD: I just hope we move through EVERYTHING SHATTERED GLASS as quickly as possible. The next obvious step would be DOUBLE SHATTERED GLASS where the heroic Decepticons are evil! OOOOOOOOHH HOOO HOOO :DANCE: This is the laziest abuse of a multiverse concept ever. It sucks.

Hmm, Shattered Shattered Glass, where Autobots are good and Decepticons are evil...

Guys, this is "Shattered Glass the World", not "Shattered Glass the Concept".

These are Classicverse Autobots becoming Maximals taking part in their own Beast Wars in the ancient past of the Shatteredverse's Earth.

But the question is... how did they get to Shattered Glass Earth's distant past?

I gotta admit that I enjoyed the Shattered Glass concept. I would've even accepted Magnus, Prowl, Ironhide & Silverbolt going back to the past and acquiring their Beast Forms.

But I'm having a REALLY tough time accepting this line of rationalization. There's just too much going on in FunPub's universe as a whole right now that just seems forced to justify a few toys.

There is an answer, but it's very spoilerific for those who haven't been keeping up with the Fun Pub fiction.

This is the most straightforward rundown of events leading up to this that I've seen. But, again, spoilers.

Honest to God, that explanation makes perfect sense.

I agree that there's too much going on with FunPub's "universe". It's extremely convoluted. I'm pretty knee deep with the Transformers hobby and I really have no idea what's going on with the FunPub stuff. It's such a mess that I gave up trying to understand what's going on. It's a bummer too ... because there could have been some cool stuff such as integrating the upcoming Depth Charge figure into the BotCon 2006 pre-Beast Wars storyline, retconning Ultra Mammoth into the original Beast Wars stories (or at least the IDW storyline), introducing Circuit and Scourge into THE Classics Universe, and so on. I'd rather have a 6 to 8 page mini-comic (ala the old Masters of the Universe mini-comics and the Target exclusive Transformers DOTM toys) that gives the characters a little backstory that just makes for a fun read instead of trying to build upon an ill-conceived, extremely convoluted and difficult-to-follow multi-universe storyline.

What Seibertron said. PLUS, it's tired. Shattered Glass has become a sack of laundry. Work.

My opinion only. Lets move on to something different SGCC....I mean TFCC.

In the world of the Transformers - the battle between the not so evil Decepticons and the okay Autobots.

That would be awesome, he's a much better figure IMO. I doubt they will though since Grimmy already has a toy from the Beast Wars line as do all the others shown so far except Mammoth/Magnus, who we already know about.

I agree that their fiction has gotten way out of hand. I don't pay attention to it. I buy the toys I like and disregard the fiction they slap together to justify them. Of course it doesn't help their cause that I have never followed any of the TF comics, but lacking fiction never stopped me from collecting non-show figures of lines I liked, so for me the entire point is moot as long as I gets me some more Beast Wars repaints :).

Maybe they mean Shattered Glass Movie-verse? Where the Transformers don't look like collections of iron filings and the Autobots aren't raging murderous psychopaths.

My biggest issue with Shattered Glass is that the whole concept is so unconventional, it caters more to superhero comic book fans than it does to Transformers fans. It's really like something straight out of Marvel comics. It's not the type of storyline that you could market to kids or adults who are used to conventional Transformers storylines. To a hardcore G1 fan it just seems silly.
