His big scene in the big Astrotrain battle for leadership was also great. Too bad Starscream suckerpunched him after he beat everybody else up

Of course he has. I mean, remember when Trailbreaker had to pretend to be him in Masquerade?

Transfer Uplinks look cool but in the wrong hands could be OP. Hmmm Just a funny thought what if Mainframe from G1 had a TU? He could make about anything period. Also does anyone know if CatSCAN ever received a spark? His wiki article says he is a spark less build when he was created surly he has one now.

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

I'm planning on picking up the Last Stand of the Wreckers TPB this week or next. I've read Stormbringer, Infiltration-Revelation and Maximum Dinobots (+Spotlights), but skipped AHM and the current ongoing. Am I going to be missing much when I read LSotW? Is this series an off-shoot of the current ongoing (like the Bumblebee mini)?

Thanks,
Bob

I've never picked up a single issue of IDW other than skimming Wiki and flipping pages in Stormbringer at Barnes and Noble, and I had no trouble following the story. It's pretty well self contained beyond references to characters getting in and out or the Phase-Sixers. Given how much you've read, sounds like you are more than up to date enough for Wreckers icon-hotrod.gif
Clearing out some old TFs and Mugenbine in my BST Thread. You know you want some of these.

Yeah, AHM has very little to do with it, and, thus far, it's not really tied into the Ongoing (I think Magnus's bit in ongoing takes place after LSotW, maybe?).

It's readily accessible to casual and even non-fans. All the info you need to get the gist of it is contained within.

Recommended reading for maximum enjoyment would be Spotlight: Kup and All Hail Megatron issue 15 (first half only). Both written and drawn by Nick Roche, one of the LSOTW masterminds. Not required reading, however.

If you haven't read any of AHM, then brace yourself. His name's Perceptor

Basically, there's just two things to know about AHM as it relates to LSotW

-It involves a big Decepticon push against Autobot forces across the galaxy, and the opening of Wreckers takes place during one aspect of that push.

-The end of Wreckers features a piece of information that wasn't detailed in any of the books you've read. It occured at the end of AHM.

You may also wonder where Hunter is and why Kup has a Cigar

Good point on Hunter. As for Kup's cy-gar, I think anyone looking at it would just assume it was the Transformer version of a cigar. (Which it is, the story behind Kup's using it notwithstanding)
