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.

@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.

I'm hoping we did indeed get HeTellMeish information, and Rumble and Frenzy combine into a DELUXE sized tank. That would make their robot modes perfect size to display with Music Label Soundwave.


Seems likely, considering the Ice Cream Twins toy. That would really erase a lot of my qualms with this release, what with Frenzy and Rumble being potentially too big, and taking a voyager slot when guys like Galvatron, Straxus, and Thunderwing didn't even get to be voyagers. I really hope you're right.


Unless BBTS has bad info the overall figure is in the same size class as Megatron and Grapple. If there is a combined tank it would be a lot bigger than deluxe.

Since we're all pulling them from the same place, lol, I'll just toss out a guess that the two figures are scout sized and make a slightly undersized Voyager.

Of course we could all just call our toys what we prefer and avoid the whole debate. Thus far Hasbro hasn't shown up at our houses and shot any of us in the head because we called Darkmount "Straxus." YET!

Surely this argument could have been made without the "shot us in the head" hyperbole. (Seriously, people who do this kind of thing make it sound like, unless there's the potential for it to be life-or-death, it shouldn't matter at all. We don't need to go so far to say that, perhaps, it shouldn't matter).

There are plenty of reasons to try to get things right. And plenty of much more reasonable reasons why no one else (much less Hasbro) should care what we call them.


I'm not arguing that people shouldn't care, I'm arguing that some care a little too much. But that's just me, a LOT of the things this fandom does irk me. I really can't imagine ever paying 3 times US retail to just get a mildly better paint job, for example. To each their own and all but it doesn't make sense to me.

I came into this addiction as a 'toon fan. For me, Rumble will always be blue. If someone thinks he's red, have at it.

Fair enough, and I'll certainly concede being guilty of this myself. But, to go the other direction, surely something short of potential murder could be cited as a reason why a fan could justify caring, yes?

Wheeljack - I don't think I'm as psyched as most others here, but I am very happy to finally be getting a deluxe G1 Wheeljack to finally go alongside my UT Wheelshifts and SG Wheeljack. I guess we all kind of knew he was going to be a Tracks remold, so I was resigned to thinking there'd be no surprises. However, I'm really glad to see that they did put some effort into him. The car mode looks nicely different, and the modified wingtips help really sell this as Wheejack vs a Tracks remold. Repurposing the missile launchers as tools is creative in a cute way, but I'll be keeping them in place as shoulder weapons a la Tracks.

Frenzy - Looks pretty great, really. Didn't ever expect him as a tank, and this means that the usual scale problems are at work, but it's a good looking tank (looks like ROTF Bludgeon crossed with Energon Kickback) and the bot mode looks nice - I really like how the turrets approximate his back-mounted blasters. I wonder what the situation with Rumble will be - at this point, based on how small Frenzy looks, it may just be a non-combining 2-pack.

..... you do realize Laser OP had flames back in G2 right? His entire theme was fire, and giant explosions which spelt out his damn name! I know you have a compulsion to screech about the current movies whenever you have the chance, but do your research first.

And as for coloring on Rumble and Frenzy even the original show didn't get this right, as the show's bible had the correct color listed for Rumble, as in he was called a RED robot. This all just came about because the people doing the animation just didn't care enough in their work to follow simple instructions. Keep in mind when the show reached Japan, the mistake was rectified.

Fortunately, Hasbro has always kept the correct colors, and with Kyde working on this line, and knowing what he is doing here, this toy we have seen will happily be his proper colors and be a blue Frenzy.

On the other hand, his trailer featured flames prominently, so it seems more about blending the deco a bit.

The flames are better than the red to black fade, anyways. That never really made much sense.

Look at the trailer...

I'm not a fan of voting on peoples posts. it just seems very passive aggressive to click 'down vote' and not add anything to the thread. and up votes are exactly the same. to my mind the whole point of a forum is discussion and being able to just easily agree or disagree takes the discussion out of the equation.

Seriously, he's scout sized. You can calculate his exact size from the clips on his forearms, which are 2cm. He's about 11cm tall, minus the back guns.

Wheeljack looks pretty neat, but I'd like to see him painted.

Rumble looks okay. Hopefully he'll be small so he doesn't look weird standing next to soundwave.

g2 Prime looks okay, but he kind of reminds me of Energon Optimus Prime. that's not a good thing.

Scourge looks great. He'd be better if his wings looked more like the animation model.

Well you may be caring a little too much about that too. It's just an expression that doesn't really mean Hasbro is literally going to shoot someone in the head. Could have just as easily been "Thus far Hasbro hasn't shown up at our houses and peed in our Frosted Flakes because we called Darkmount "Straxus."

YET! The point being though that Hasbro couldn't care less, and when you get down to it neither should we. It's just a little baffling that the same fandom that spawns a massive repurposing thread also spawns RIRFIB FIRRIB. Call them Hokey Pokey 1 and 2 for all I care, so long as people let me call them what I want.

And then someday you're going to look at your near complete cast of deluxe "Classics" cars and your Alt. Tracks towering over them. And then you'll buy this Tracks. Probably for twice retail. Just do the sensible thing and go ahead and buy it now to keep sealed. Either in a couple of years you'll be glad you did when you wind up wanting it, or you'll wind up having a valuable sealed toy!
