Project: Rock Lords[edit source]

Ok, for those who are interested in getting the Rock Lords stuff up, let's be coordinated. I'm happy to start work on template pages, so we don't need to keep fiddling with stuff.

I'm happy for anything on my blog to be used, especially the pictures, as long as there's a link back and credit where done so. I've also got more pics of variants etc on my harddrive waiting to be edited. Blueshift2k5 (talk) 22:03, 10 January 2017 (UTC)

Sort of done:

Subscriptions[edit source]

"It lasted for five issues before being cancelled, and subscribers received the Official Statue of Liberty Magazine in its place." That's not what I received. My subscription was transferred to some computer magazine.--Khajidha (talk) 19:09, 12 January 2017 (UTC)

Maybe they ran out! That's certainly what they advertised! (Uploading as it'll go on the mag page soon) Blueshift2k5 (talk) 20:15, 12 January 2017 (UTC)
Maybe it depended on when you subscribed? I only remember getting 1 or 2 issues of the GoBots magazine before the subscription changed over. --Khajidha (talk) 13:06, 1 March 2017 (UTC)

Page[edit source]

This is going to be a long way down my hitlist but it's irresponsible to have this page still peddling a couple of myths until we can verify them.

  • When researching for the film I could find no primary sources for Maltin claiming Transformers was a GoBots rip-off, only fan sites repeating it second hand. The only Maltin review (admittedly one of his retrospective capsules) I could find doesn't mention Transformers; we need a source so we're not perpetuating a possible myth here.
  • Ditto the trade screening of a dubbed episode of COTG; all I can find is secondhand mentions on fan pages; I'm not even sure how anyone would find out that happened.

I've made them invisible for now until someone gets around to rewriting the page; it's a shame as I like the chirpy energy of it. As ever I'm happy to be corrected but I see this Wiki as a great chance to avoid perpetuating some of the hearsay involved in GoBots/Rock Lords/Machine Robo etc. just as TF Wiki put some of the old stories about Transformers to rest. So I think for stuff like that we need citations. Carry-All (talk) 08:58, 14 September 2021 (UTC)
