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.

So many implies more than one.

Generation One, technically.

The Japanese series (Headmasters, Masterforce, Victory).

The Unicron Trilogy was told in three.

Yes, Animated.

But you know? The Joecon hints always point to something OBVIOUS that it turns out not to be, but still applies to something less obvious.
So I'm going to say this is the case here too, and might not be Animated after all.

Hence "technically", since a tiny multi-parter does not really a season make.

And "Megatron Conquers Cybertron" could be fun.

What molds would still be in viable working condition from Beast Wars or Beast Machines?

To me it's gotta be Animated considering what figures are available to them, and it's probably the one year they can still get enough interest in an Animated set before people completely move on to something else (due to the show and style being dropped from any new merch).

Yeah, exactly. This is the last viable shot for Animated, so my money is on that. Derrick Wyatt worked with them on Cheetor, so the relationship's already there.

They used most of Universe and Classics, a lot of ROTF (if not all) and all of Movie 1 is off the table, RTS and Generations are too new. Energon and Cybertron still have some molds, but I don't think the ones they have left are ones they're likely to want to visit.

Anything else is probably too old to go back to. So Animated is the only logical choice at this point. And as I (and Daytonus mentioned) if they're going to use them, now is the best (and probably only) time to do so.

If the rumors of what the toys will be (more Classics and Animated) are to be believed, perhaps we can expect a comic containing vignettes of several different continuities and a mix of toys accordingly.

This makes sense.

Why would they call a UT or Animated continuation "season 3.5" instead of "season 4"? Besides, last we were told, they didn't have access to the Animated universe, only the toys.

If it is Animated I wonder how many people will request they do Wingblade Optimus, Hydrodive Bumblebee, and Blackout even though TakaraTomy released them at cheaper prices than the BotCon figures would likely cost?

If it is Animated, I hope BotCon doesn't do anything that TakaraTomy did but Hasbro didn't.

Yeah. I'm going to get Cheetor because i'm a Beast Whore, but if the rest of the box set is Animated.....*looks at his box of Animated toys that has gone untouched for almost a year*

Not that I have anything in particular against Animated. I'll buy them at retail, but Botcon Exclusive prices? Probably not.

That said, i'm actually against the idea of a mixed Classics/Animated set. At that point you're trying to be all things to all fans, and I think singularity of focus and theme cohesion is better than a hodgepodge mishmash. Judging from past box set sales, most fans seem to feel this way also (2005 and, yes, 2010 have both suffered, while 2006, 2007, 2008 and 2009 have done mostly quite well, with the latter being somewhat on the iffy side. Yes, before anyone jumps in to correct me, I know this probably isn't the only reason that those two years didn't perform as well, but i'm pretty sure it was one of the major factors).
