yeah it was long as hell, it took me several days to finish it.

@  Paladin : (24 July 2016 - 11:58 AM)

maybe this new one won't take half a day to watch all the way through...

@  tffan01 : (24 July 2016 - 11:00 AM)

I believe this new Kong movie will not be as good as the 2005 one.

@  Pennpenn : (24 July 2016 - 08:52 AM)

You'd figure something like that would get a pass, some kind of grandfather clause since the name is already intractably established.

@  Paladin : (24 July 2016 - 08:15 AM)

"DS-1 Orbital Battle Station." That's the official classification...

@  Bass X0 : (24 July 2016 - 08:04 AM)

now that Hasbro can't use the word "Death" on the packaging of their toys, what will they call the Death Star?

@  Whirl Maximus : (24 July 2016 - 07:44 AM)

It's in the comic con trailer and seems like a hideous waste. I guess the show makers have no reverence for Doctor Who like they do Star Trek.

@  Bass X0 : (24 July 2016 - 04:20 AM)

Which is the height of quality for Family Guy jokes...

@  Whirl Maximus : (24 July 2016 - 04:00 AM)

David Tennent has done a cutaway for Family Guy. Don't get to excited it was a fart joke.

"Micronauts: Starring psychic Peter Quill and E123-Omega".

@  Broadside : (23 July 2016 - 03:16 PM)

Ooh, sounds neat.

@  Sockie : (23 July 2016 - 01:16 PM)

Yeah, the first was definitely the weakest of the three. Really looking forward to the next issue; judging by the preview for it, it's delving into Karza and Shazraella's past and Microspace's exact political situation.

@  Broadside : (23 July 2016 - 01:11 PM)

I was ambivalent about the first issue, but the quality stepped up in the second and again in the third.

@  Sockie : (23 July 2016 - 10:37 AM)

And yes, Micronauts is great! I enjoyed the first three issues quite a lot.

@  Sockie : (23 July 2016 - 10:36 AM)

Cave Carson looks really cool as well, so I can't be too saddened about that.

@  Broadside : (23 July 2016 - 06:29 AM)

I ended up checking it out, and it's pretty damn neat.

@  Nutjob R/T : (22 July 2016 - 02:44 PM)

Which is kinda... I preordered the new VF-2ss, and then before it shipped there was the exclusive version with the SAP pack that was only open for two days of orders. And then I got the naked VF2ss and it's... Not... Good.

@  TM2-Megatron : (22 July 2016 - 12:18 AM)

Yeah, Japanese online sellers seem to take it very seriously, in my experience. When you commit to something, it's expected that you follow through on it, and cancelled transactions seem to be frowned upon. However, I've never dealt with more courteous or considerate sellers than those in Japan; some have even enclosed a small gift item in the package on occasion.

@  NotVeryKnightly : (21 July 2016 - 03:44 PM)

Nothing really happened, I just got an email saying I shouldn't do that.

@  NotVeryKnightly : (21 July 2016 - 03:43 PM)

But I ended up buying it later since it got delayed.

@  Bass X0 : (21 July 2016 - 03:43 PM)

and what did they do?

@  NotVeryKnightly : (21 July 2016 - 03:42 PM)

I've cancelled something with them once.

@  Nutjob R/T : (21 July 2016 - 03:27 PM)

AmiAmi is nice but if you preorder you gotta friggin' MEAN it

@  Dracula : (21 July 2016 - 03:17 PM)

Yep, I ordered a bunch of Gundam kits from them earlier this year. The shipping was high but I had to do EMS due to the weight of the package

@  Bass X0 : (21 July 2016 - 03:09 PM)

and amiami is a reputable site? this is the first time i'm using them.

@  Dracula : (21 July 2016 - 02:56 PM)

Oh! Nice. I guess I thought SAL was always untracked.

@  NotVeryKnightly : (21 July 2016 - 01:39 PM)

Registered means it has tracking.

@  Dracula : (21 July 2016 - 01:26 PM)

Yeah it's just slower and doesn't have tracking...usually the best economic option

@  Benbot : (21 July 2016 - 01:07 PM)

SAL is just fine

@  Bass X0 : (21 July 2016 - 01:06 PM)

unless anybody has problems with "SAL Small Packet (Registered)".

@  Bass X0 : (21 July 2016 - 01:03 PM)

Okay, I got it down to 11,930 (£85) with SAL Small Packet (Registered). Thats better. £101 would be too much for two Deluxes and a Voyager even with better (IMO) color schemes.

@  MEDdMI : (21 July 2016 - 01:02 PM)

That's about 101.55 British pounds

@  Bass X0 : (21 July 2016 - 12:58 PM)

Is 14,200 Yen worth it for Takara Skull, Hardhead and Galvatron with shipping to the UK from amiami?

@  SHIELD Agent 47 : (21 July 2016 - 11:38 AM)

I doubt anyone takes it seriously that Primax 1005.19 Gamma is indeed the original universe. That author comment is bound to be contradicted by some multiverse story down the road, anyway. Even Vector Prime in AVP said that even if it were true, there is no way for him or his colleagues to discern so, which obviates any substantial impact of "Elegant Chaos".

@  tffan01 : (21 July 2016 - 10:48 AM)

I remember my silly haunted toy thread, 10 people voted 1 star or so sniff http://www.allspark....d-transformers/ I don't believe in haunted stuff but I still made the thread for the lulz.

@  tffan01 : (21 July 2016 - 10:42 AM)

no, he left it ambigious actually.

@  NotVeryKnightly : (21 July 2016 - 10:42 AM)

So someone already contradicted him.

@  Locoman : (21 July 2016 - 10:41 AM)

So really who can say

@  Locoman : (21 July 2016 - 10:41 AM)

But Vector Prime said that it just altered THAT universe's properties, allowing for the development of things like the Functionist world

So, what, whenever someone doesn't like something but you have no problem with it, you're gonna blame em of having Asperger's?

I never said I hated the new body, I just asked where he got it. If it was explained.
Then you said it was the same body, just with Guido's art style... so I posted that to show that it isn't.

Eh, I think it's close enough. It's got the details on the head, and the wheels in the legs, and all that. Guido's just getting away from Roche's extremely thin steampunky look and giving him normal proportions.

And no, Detour, none of the new bodies are explained. As I said, its just basically left up to Guido to draw 'em how he likes, and Shane's said he feels that Transformers can change their general look whenever they feel like it so he's probably not going to expend energy on explaining it in-storyline.

EDIT: See lonegamer's post, heh.

Actually, Hasbro requested Guido to go with certain designs. Not sure on Kup, but I think that they would've given him a new one after they fully treated him (from the looks of it, off panel). From his post at the IDW board:

QUOTE('Guido')
I do not decide anything all by myself.
Especially NOT just for the sake of "disrespect" toward other artists' work!
We work as a team, everything is discussed before being put on paper. Every single page, every single design. Ask Denton, Shane or Josh.
Also, I suppose Hasbro has the right to ask IDW to incorporate the TF toy designs whenever possible, no?
Hence the change of Prowl, Sunstreaker and Sideswipe, for example. (Hope revealing this won't cause any trouble!).
That said, why nobody wondered why I based my Cliffjumper heavily on EJ's Bumblebee, instead of using toys?
As for my style, I'm not not "technic" like E.J.'s or Don's, not even closer. I'm one who think about the TF as living characters first, robots then (like in BW, TF Animated).
My background as TF artist is heavily based on the G1/Armada animation art: this maybe be my limit, but I'm proud of it. Hopefully I'm good on other aspects.
Also, I can't please anyone or force myself to not follow my "istinct". I already did that enough in the past, and I won't do that again.

Hope this gives some explanation. icon-arcee.gif

tbh im hugging loveing this series just as much as i loveed Simons stuff, nice milatary structure, characterisation, and TBH for about 6 month i had been toying with the idea of pitching a Spotlight Jazz story, but Shane has gone and nailed exactly the type of Jazz i wanted to see.

also dont care if there is a difference between Guido And Nick, both look ace,
you want an answer for the new designs here you go

also you wanna know where the Matrix was

Kup
"Where he find it"

At the time, I was battling your weird vendettas both on here and on the Wiki, where at the latter you were absolutely determined to put more petty negative things on Dan Didio's page because I guess you just read Batman RIP, despite repeated edits by others to remove them. Look, we get it. You hate Dan Didio. Congratulations!

Given that Kup was said to be recovering in one of the Spotlights, I just assumed that he'd been given a new body for good measure. Makes perfect sense, given the shocking state of his old one.

New/different bodies are par for the course in Transformers. Try to find an explanation for it and your head will explode. icon-wheelie.gif

I like the series a lot, I don't really care about all of the nitpicks and the tie-ins that most are so concerned with. It makes for a good read this way. Why does Kup have a new body? Because he would have looked RIDICULOUS in the body from his spotlight.
Yeah, well, you know, that's just, like, your opinion, man.

And... the Matrix. I can't recall it featuring in any of the previous IDW stories, but maybe it's there. (Did Nova have it? But its not as if Prime took it from him in Revelations...) Just seems like more cartoon stuff shoe-horned in here.

I was confused about that for all of the -Ation series, at least since Nova reappeared.

I thought so too, I guess he became a tape because they got Soundwave back, so they can work together/SW can control him better.

I think this one was my favorite so far, Jazz is just so awesome, and useing Mirage for sentry duty makes so much sense, I was wondering who the big guy was man Roadbuster's big, his face reminds me of Tankor.

And is it too hard to assume after his spotlight, Kup recovered and maybe became more open to getting upgrades? I wonder how old he is.

That doesn't have to be the only solution. We don't ever hear that Kup never gets upgrades. Just that he's stubborn about it, and so he's incompatible with most modern technology. It's easy to assume that if Kup looks different now than he did before, it's that they found some old parts that would work with him. That's way more likely than finding the exact same old parts he had before.
