Words fail me with the Hot Rodimus manga when it comes to Shao Shao Li... Ahem, the notes for all three:

- first of, very high cut it seems. You ladies will know what I mean.
- Shao Shao Li still likes her steamed buns, like the KP PVC figurine
- the fatal flaw with the suits is shown as utterly destroying the clothes of the wearer. Nightbeat is aware of this flaw.
- the Targetmaster wielded by Sweep no. 7, and later Scourge is Blowpipe, having a cloning ability now. Triggerhappy will come to reclaim him later.
- Hot Rodimus fishing with Shao Shao Li references an extra piece of KP fiction.
- Sharkticons hatch from eggs?
- note that the tails of the Sharkticon clones are grey, while the template's tail (all there is, really) is blue, based on the original G1 toy.
- apparently Sharkticon clones can't eat as well as they used to, as anything swallowed can climb back out.
- turns out Marissa's daughter Sue is Kup's Targetmaster partner, using the "Recoil-Type suit"
- Kup hasn't kicked his cy-gar habit, tho he uses a plain screw instead. Yay for progress?
- a Sharkticon tamed? Where have we seen that before, it's "gnawing" at me...

Man, it's good to see Shaoshao in fiction that isn't blatantly horrific. I do so love anime Chinese girls. Let's hope poor old Atari gets her time to shine again.

And, well, Hot Rod fishing with a human friend all started with him and Daniel in TFTM.

Then WARN people about these pictures. If you THINK that any content is going to cause problems, then take steps to reduce it.

Previously, this site merely showed links to the comics, rather than full images. Other methods include a separate thread for such content and/or with a warning, such as "NSFW/May cause offence" etc.

I came to this discussion page from the Kup Misassembled news post i didn'texpect to see inappropriate, possibly sexual/misogynistic portrayals of women on the same page.

EVERY time I see this here, I'm going to comment about it. That's not to say I would always do so if due diligence has been met, but expect such comments if you openly post content that causes such debate.

I'm headcanoning the Sharkticons as very much like pirahna- when they're hungry they can eat just about anything, but most of the time they're timid things that are scared of the dark and anything bigger than themselves (which is most things) and mostly nibble on scrap metal.

Yes, Pirahna are scared of the dark.

Yes, I actually refer to them as Pirrahnacons, as that's what they look and act like. Why were they called Sharkticons to begin with , I don't know.

For crying out loud. If you're "offended" by the Legends manga you need help.

You've been in this thread before (unfortunately for us). You should know what to expect. The fault is ENTIRELY yours.
EVERY time I see this here, I'm going to comment about it. That's not to say I would always do so if due diligence has been met, but expect such comments if you openly post content that causes such debate.

And EVERY time I see you posting your thin-skinned "Stop liking what I don't like" drivel I'm going to point and laugh, and tell you what an idiot you are. You have two options:

1: Continue posting your crap in here and continue getting ridiculed.
2: Stop coming into the thread and avoid the source of your butthurt.

Those are your choices. I would recommend the latter.

Remember, Pirrahnacon is already taken by the Seacon gestalt. Also, while the Sharkticons may have a more pirrahna like mouth, they have the whole shark fin motif and the "Jaws" thing of giant killer sharks that was out A decade before that makes Sharks more terrifying

Well said. I would only add an option 3. If you know that the comics offend you, but otherwise like the legends thread, most devices and computers have the awesome scroll feature that let's you quickly go right past what you don't want.

I do it all the time.

This is true, but I think the Sharkticons were released before the Seacons, right?

You know, I wondered about that as I wrote it and almost went to go check. Now you've got me curious. But I wonder if the productions would have been close enough that Pirahnacon was already chosen even if the toys weren't first? Defender dropped right before the movie, who was his "opponent"?

EDIT: Hmm. TFWiki lists the Seacons as 1988, so that sorta blows me out of the water (buh-dump-bum) I still stick to my Jaws theory though. [-( :-P

No. The content causes heated debate. It's not just me who has an issue with this. Regardless of which side of that debate people fall in, a mod has voices concern over it boiling up.

The common sense thing to do is to NOT have such content in the general thread. However, if it must be that way, then hide it behind "spoiler" links or something similar. This is a thread for everyone, not just you. It's akin to posting pornographic, political or other "taboo" subjects, including plot spoilers. Generally, there are steps that can be taken by websites to limit such confrontations, which then gives such sites more power to control posts.

If such due diligence was enacted, then there is more scope for calling out those who have "come to the thread" purely to troll, and/or help point them to a discussion thread that is more appropriate.

Mixing up news posts to one thread, but especially content that is known to cause heated or emotional debate/feelings isn't exactly a great thing to do.

Also, the main point here isn't my complaint or the one/s prior to that, but the mod asking us to "play nice". If they want that, they should moderate the content of the site to achieve that goal.

I'm sure "shark" was considered more marketable than "piranha" at the time.

Oh you crazy whack-a-doodles. *cracks knuckles* Let's get down to business, and let's start with this.

Here's a tip. Rather than flooding the discussion with your complaints, if you have a problem with News articles, bring it up with the news crew by sending them an e-mail. news@seibertron.com, or go straight to the Head News Honcho Va'al, vaal@seibertron.com

Because what you did? Now I gotta deal with this, and people gotta deal trawl through a bunch of off-topic posts.

Which brings me to ... *drum roll* ...

Nope. No way. Nuh uh. Not gonna happen. You do not get to mock or ridicule another member of these forums. You also don't get to tell other members what they can and can't do.

So as Kurona said, stop. Both of you. Any further crap like this and the warnings get issued.

Now, back on topic peeps! And when I say back on topic, I mean that, if you feel the need to respond to this post, send me a PM. I'll try not to read them until I get through this headache inducing pile of paperwork you guys interrupted me from working on.

Thanks for the reply. Sorry to cause a headache. To be meta, I don't think there are many posts here. Just the most recent ones. Prior to this, it was just different opinions without any "war" going on.
