As an UK expat, I have to say I miss the actual thrill of hunting in stores as frustrating as it was when distribution was bad. I feel spoiled for choice in America in comparison lol.

@  Steevy Maximus : (27 May 2016 - 04:48 PM)

And depending on where you live, even American stores

@  wonko the sane? : (27 May 2016 - 02:59 PM)

Or canadian stores, or australian stores, or german stores...

@  Bass X0 : (27 May 2016 - 02:14 PM)

at least you got the exercise. i ordered all of them online. there's no point in being a serious collector if someone is only going to rely on using UK stores.

The one I go to gives me a discount on each issue's cover price. I still have to go there to pick up my comics but I'm sure I'll never miss any of them

@  Dracula : (27 May 2016 - 07:26 AM)

Plokatron, I don't think many comics companies do direct subscriptions like that anymore. However many local comic shops will reserve comics for you in a subscription fashion.

@  Foffy the Sheep : (27 May 2016 - 06:46 AM)

I have a friend who is one of the illegitimte comics trivia masters on the planet, and he says all the animation was hand-drawn by Muppets.

@  Scavgraphics : (27 May 2016 - 04:21 AM)

@Telly I got a friend who's one of the legit comics trivia masters on the planet. I've asked if he knows.

@  Plokatron : (26 May 2016 - 10:35 PM)

Been wondering and I'm probly being a complete slag brain and not notice whats in front of me. But does IDW have subscriptions available on their site? I'm thinking of signing up for monthly comics and Transformers is da one.

@  unluckiness : (26 May 2016 - 09:01 PM)

No idea, but I'd guess it'd be some in-studio job otherwise, given the obssessiveness nerds can have over about 50 years, we'd know by now.

@  Telly : (26 May 2016 - 08:54 PM)

does anyone know who did the "animation" for the 1960s batman show? been wondering for years and i cant find an answer anywhere. looks to me like either jack kirby or john romita

As kind of a joke someone gave me a Transformer coloring book today.

I was pretty surprised to see that it's got a full Cybertronian alphabet in it.



I checked it against the few figures that I had near me that had Cybertronian symbols (Mindwipe, Chromia and Arcee) and it pretty much always worked.
Unfortunately I didn't decipher anything cool though.

Mindwipe has four symbols on his wings. Three of which I was able to read. W,Y and R.

My wife pointed out that the last symbol could be a number.
Unfortunately I don't have a list of those.

On Chromia I found, X, T, R and I.
Arcee only had two symbols, X and T.

It would be really cool if someone who knew how made a font out of these.

I should finally get off my duff and update the reference PDF on the wiki. Someone posted a clear scan of that page to the wiki awhile back, and I never got around to it. We've got most of those in the file, but not all.

So now someone can create a font! icon-fire.gif

-Edit-

Just checked over on the wiki, and according to this some of the letters also double as numbers - I think . It seems that certain letters in the Cybertronian alphabet are assigned numeric values, as every number is also represented as a letter. So, for example, in our language, '3' and 'three' represent the same concept, while in Cybertronian, 3 and I represent the same concept.*

In most ancient alphabets, number symbols doubled as numbers. Not just Roman Numerals, but also Greek, Hebrew, etc. This is where gemetria (the practice of finding the numerical value of words, like "Nero" equalling 616 or 666) comes from. The idea of having separate number symbols didn't come to dominate until later, although it was kicking around from the start.

Aesthetically, cybertronian symbols look similar to the ideograms that some asian cultures use IMHO. I wonder if in some asian country fans lol and lol because "that robot has poo written on it?s wing".

Given the similarity between H and O, and between I and P, poor Ironhide must have a devil of a time writing his name if his calligraphy is even a little sloppy. "PRONHIDE?"

I should have guessed it was already on the Wiki.

I just looked at Classics Cosmos and none of his symbols are on this list.

I guess this is only a ROTF alphabet.

Yes. The language on Cosmos is on the wiki as well. Look up "Cybertronian Languages"

Yeah, it's Movieverse only. We do have other Cybertronian languages on the Wiki, like Cybertronix from Beast Wars and a catchall article for the rest. We have some excellent fonts done by Jim Sorenson up too.

Ya know... I never really looked at the Wiki before.

I guess this is a good of reason as any to start.
