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.

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.

@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 how 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

I had some spare KO seeker parts after I got replacement parts for some broken ones. I realized I could do something cool with them!









The original Starscream KO looked like this:

The arms and lower legs are from the Thundercracker KO; I did not paint the Starscream limbs. The face and torso were painted using Formula P3 paints.

I'm not sure I see the point in leaving the wings off of a viable transforming toy just to make it more "Action Master", but it does look good.

I kept the foot wings on for balance, actually. He doesn't have much foot without them.

I had a heavy decision between what you see here and having him still transform. If he did transform, the colors would have been pretty mismatched. I'm not sure if I would have gone for a jet mode that was more Starscream or Thundercracker colored. I will actually reuse the wings on another KO figure whose wings were broken. I plan to take a picture of what I have right now pending being designed and painted, it might help to make some more sense.

Basically I had the kotoys.com three seekers (skywarp, thundercracker, and starscream) and two ramjets (one orange, one white). The white one has a broken leg. Skywarp and TC arrived each with one broken wing (though I have received replacements from kotoys, awesome). So now with some swapping and modding I have...

The AM Starscream you see here.
Skywarp body with Starscream wings and possibly Ramjet arms (one Skywarp has two right fists)
Thundercracker/Starscream mismatched body but with Ramjet wings

All I will have leftover is some mismatched wings (some broken), the blue ankle wings, and the Starscream nosecone... I think. Anyway I won't be very wasteful. icon-hotrod.gif

What was the decision for giving deluxe Starscream more black on his lower legs than on the AM? And there is no grey just above the deluxe's waist like there is on the AM. I can forgive the silver on his feet and the painted air intakes though but I consider the previous two points to be inaccuracies. He would also look a lot better with a Decepticon insignia on his left shoulder.

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

Interesting points. Perhaps I will make those changes. All of the paint or lack thereof (with the exception of the red chest, blue pelvis, and yellow air intakes) was that way on the original. I did not consider adhering quite so closely to the original, but I can and probably will put a symbol on at least.
