@  Lisbon Virgo : (07 February 2016 - 02:38 PM)

Well, the idea of dying during sex sounds appealing until you realize it involves crushed pelvises...

@  Paladin : (07 February 2016 - 08:21 AM)

TripleDent Gum, will make you smile...

@  Pennpenn : (06 February 2016 - 10:34 PM)

I do love how they did the "Death! ...by snu-snu!" scene, with Fry and Brannigan's expressions shifting between horrified and delighted.

@  Lisbon Virgo : (06 February 2016 - 08:46 PM)

Yes, please?

@  MEDdMI : (06 February 2016 - 07:48 PM)

Death by snu-snu

@  siccoyote : (06 February 2016 - 07:36 PM)

Everyone's gotta die from something

@  Plokatron : (06 February 2016 - 06:51 PM)

My dad survived it twice and we both have a strong hate towards it for taking someone from us. IMy sympathies to your family.

@  Plokatron : (06 February 2016 - 05:14 PM)

@Smokey Sorry to here that.

@  Smokey : (06 February 2016 - 02:42 PM)

I'd laugh more at cancer jokes if cancer hadn't killed my aunt six years ago.

@Dracula Hey the crab is cool too but this DNA monster is giving them both a bad name.

@  Plokatron : (05 February 2016 - 11:07 PM)

Got my copy of the Allspark Almanac. Time to go waste time some more! Hope my copy of HoS get here next week. Trainsformers! More steam to meet your eye!!! No no don't look directly into the cylinders!!!! You fool!!!

I like Cancer in Masterforce. Otherwise it's the worst and I don't understand how it keeps getting cast in everything

@  Plokatron : (05 February 2016 - 02:34 AM)

No Cancer is Disgraceful, Disgusting and Despicable! Blasted genetic abnormality thinking it owns the place. I worry for any who have it this year. 2016 looks to be a bad year for cancer sufferers.

@  Smokey : (05 February 2016 - 01:34 AM)

You're dethhhhpicable, 2016.

@  Plokatron : (03 February 2016 - 01:32 AM)

Can anyone point me to the wiki topic on what is under animated transformers helmets? I know I saw it a few weeks back. Also it is my birthday! So my wish for the forums is "Everyone take care and be safe" I think that's a reasonable request em?

@  Plokatron : (02 February 2016 - 06:12 PM)

Also I got my new Pc at last.

@  Plokatron : (02 February 2016 - 06:12 PM)

I still have it. Not letting it go.

@  TheMightyMol... : (02 February 2016 - 05:55 PM)

I had it at one point. Then I went to public school and it got misplaced.

@  LioConvoy : (02 February 2016 - 05:29 PM)

You can't ask what happened to something that never existed.

@  TheMightyMol... : (02 February 2016 - 03:05 PM)

Oh, so that's what happened to my faith in humanity.

@  ▲ndrusi : (02 February 2016 - 12:53 PM)

I'm always dealing with stuff that stinks and is past the end of its life

@  lastmaximal : (02 February 2016 - 08:28 AM)

"Boy, glad I'm not him!" does sound like a familiar refrain for the workplace.

@  Paladin : (02 February 2016 - 07:48 AM)

nothing sets the tone for a work day like driving past a dead skunk at 7am...

@  Plokatron : (01 February 2016 - 06:07 PM)

Anyway I just ordered a copy of Allspark Almanac and the HoS graphic novel. Can't wait to see da trainsformers!

@  Plokatron : (01 February 2016 - 06:06 PM)

Very true.

@  Smokey : (01 February 2016 - 06:06 PM)

Also rat slime.

@  Plokatron : (01 February 2016 - 06:06 PM)

Yes but not Ghost slime. Just human and Bug slime.

@  Smokey : (01 February 2016 - 06:03 PM)

It doesn't matter what color slime NYC has, it's still been covered in slime for its entire existence.

@  Plokatron : (01 February 2016 - 03:05 PM)

Not to mention the series is getting a reboot this year. In July so none of that junk counts.

@  Plokatron : (01 February 2016 - 02:32 PM)

Not that kind of slime!!! Has New York ever been pink?! No that city has so much brown that it makes COD look bright and colorful.

Powered Convoy pointed out to me today that my artwork is being used for TicoBot '08's Costa Rica's new TF Con without my permission.
Original image:

Ticobot image:

I emailed the person who provided the image over at the Energon Pub to please credit me for the imagery or to remove it. And to ask artists before using their stuff in the future.
I don't own Optimus Prime's likeness, technically Hasbro owns all imagery (including fanart of Optimus) so their is really no issue there.
And it's flattering to see my Classics OP be appreciated enough for a Con logo, but it would be nice to be asked before seeing it in use. icon-wildride.gif

The guy contacted me & said they had no idea it was my art & they are working on fixing it.
So were cool.
But I want the artists here to be aware this stuff happens, sometimes by big things like a Con, & it could be anywhere in the world... next time it could be you, so take notice of where your art is & where it maybe shouldn't be.

yeah free stuff should be sent your way, it sucks when people just use your stuff without asking; i mean personally anything i've done pro, i dont mind. Or if its like some fan art being made for a you tube video, again i dont mind.

Whats really annoying is stuff like here or with the Cougar comic where people are making money off your art but you aint seeing a dime....... *grumble grumble 13 months and STILL no paycheck*

Hi!

I'm from the Ticobot organization group.

Just want to make clear some things.

The person that draw our logo didn't tell us that he taked the Optimus Artwork from Internet, so we thought it was original.

Now we added credits to the image and we're using it with permission.



Ticobot is really a small convention and a non-profit event. We are not making money of it. The entrance fee (about US$2 an adult and US$1.5 a child) is charged by the place we're using (Museo de los ni?os) and we will not see a cent. Money from sponsors (only 2 will pay) is already spent in things needed for the event. We're just a group of fans that want to share our passion.

We are very sorry about this situation and we are going to be very careful in the future about using others' work without permission.

Have a nice day!
