btw one of the Transformers Victory intro's(not the original music used) on YouTube uses one of the pieces of music used on the US version of Transformers Armada

@  Rycochet : (08 February 2016 - 03:55 PM)

You should read it again, it gets better with age!

@  Whirl Maximus : (08 February 2016 - 09:09 AM)

Thought it would lead to hi jinks and a lark like that movie Idiocracy instead it turned into something disturbing and traumatic like that movie Small Soldiers.

I got bruticus limbs at FP last monday and Onslaught on Friday. Huge mistake, I inserted an X1000 microprocessor in each one and a extra for Bruticus, and they mopped the floor with the rest of my CW collection.

@  BillBarclay : (08 February 2016 - 06:18 AM)

i already got those(Scattershot & Onslaught) from Smyths Toys here in the UK, Asda's supposed to have the RID Warrior Class figures in(Megatronus, Blue Optimus Prime ect)

"What's up with Ratchet?" is one of the "monster sized, HUGE" plot holes leftover from Marvel G1 that I'd like to see addressed, and all that image does is tell us that FP is aware of it. It doesn't serve to ANSWER this question in any meaningful way.

As to why the Autobots didn't pick Ratchet up? I doubt they knew he was there. No reason that they would ever have been in that room....


Yes, Ratchet was in Megatron's private chambers. The Autobots were never in that room.

True enough. Just trying to get whatever information I can, since I have absolutely no faith that the comic will ever address this issue properly.

Really would like to know whats going on with Ratchet in the future.

Edit: Saw the book at the comic shop but put it on hold for tommorow due to lack of cash.

Anyways, Ratchet looked like nothing more than a dead trophee to me. Of course he could be in stasis but I don't think the connection between him and Megatron is serious enough for one to cancel the other. Meg's seems to have just left him on the floor like he's dead even if he could be in stasis he's been left in disrepair thats for certain. Meg's certainly isn't afraid of any threat from Ratchet. Just seems more like he just want's to show what happens to those who humiliate him.

Actually, I think you might have once. And I did myself call that "little faith" bit upon myself, so.... We'll see. I'm prepared to be pleasantly surprised.

I received my copy of the issue in the mail on Friday.
It was mostly enjoyable, Milne's pencils and the story direction were great. It felt true enough to a continuity that I've loved and I'm glad to see it picked back up. I really could have used some better dialogue, it just kinda moved the story and none of the banter was particularly interesting. Well, except maybe the bit with Elita-1 and Ravage. What's with the lack of commas in certain places where one would typically be used? I'm not a professional and so maybe that's an accepted form of writing dialogue. After seeing it a few times, it kinda made me go "Huh."

Gushworthy was Tyrannitron's little cameo and the Classics Mini-Con origin story. From time to time FP stuff seems a bit more like pretty fanfiction, but I was very pleased by how that was handled. Very clever. icon-ironhide.gif I had to go back and check the pages to see if I missed a glimpse of any other Mini-Cons, but the attention they've received in their own story more than makes up for it.

This doesn't really feel like Marvel G1 at all to me, despite all the references. They just feel tacked on. I guess part of it is we're seeing characters introduced - Ultra Magnus, Springer, and Elita One - who weren't really in the comics. If you're going to include Magnus and Springer, you might as well use the UK material. Hell, Ultra Magnus himself feels entirely wrong...I realize part of this is the fact his Classics toy is a Prime repaint, so they have to go with the "Little Prime" stuff, but it doesn't really work for me. And Elita One is a CARTOON character through and through.


Pete says he was only using the U.S. Marvel comics as earlier continuity. Ultra Magnus is in because he has a Classics toy that can't be ignored and he was never shown in the U.S. continuity so this would be his first time on Earth. If you want to fit it in to U.K. continuity, lets say something happened to Magnus when he disappeared in the U.K. comics resulting in his new appearance and a loss of memory. I don't see any glaring problems with Springer's inclusion. Maybe now he's the only Survivor.

Elita One was a cartoon character, here she is just a brand new character. Nothing I read says she has the same origin as cartoon Elita One.

Just because you can't win doesn't mean you stop working.

Rather than get into all the old arguments again, I'd like to point out that nothing we've read so far gives "Classics" Elita One an origin at all.

Of course, if they DO make a club exclusive of her, there will probably be some online fiction to rectify that situation.

No, the BotCon 2005 comic is explicitly (well, according to Pete, anyway) a different continuity.

I was just re-reading this comic (yeah, 5 years later!), and one thing that was nice but I think could have been better was Shockwave. While the head on a pedistal was cool, an even more fitting torture for Shockwave would be if Megatron could lock him in gun mode, somehow shrink him down, and use him as his personal sidearm, like was done in Megatron in the Marvel comic (or also the Devil's Due comics). Has anyone ever portrayed Shockwave as shrinking? I don't think so, but you can still do something original from time to time. Maybe he could always shrink, but choose not it?

I think keeping Shockwave captive as a head is way more appropriate poetic justice for a Marvel continuity story, since that's what Shockwave did to Optimus Prime.

As you say, people could do something original if they wanted to. But part of Shockwave's deal is that, unlike nearly every other Transformer from the first couple of years of the line, Shockwave never adapted a non-Cybertronian alt-mode. Indeed, his Marvel Universe profile goes so far as to say that this is exactly why he stays the same size (relative to his robot mode) when he transforms.

For that reason, I would hope that any story that broke convention and portrayed Shockwave as shrinking did so fairly self-consciously, lest it appear as a mistake.

All that said, I'm with Walky as to the poetic justice of Shockwave-as-head.
