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.

@  Whirl Maximus : (27 May 2016 - 02:13 PM)

This day last year I walked five miles to Asda to collect all the Defensor components. I was a dumb kid.

@  Dracula : (27 May 2016 - 07:26 AM)

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 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

Hey everybody!

To celebrate Botcon coming this week, the Allspark Forums have been rebranded with a Botcon-themed skin! Watch out for all our Botcon coverage in the coming days. A BUNCH of staff are going to be there, including me!

I had a lot of fun working this up, and I hope it gets everyone in the Botcon mood.

For those who have never changed your skin, it should have changed automatically. For those who have, you will probably have to reset manually.

--Daytonus

P.S. If you prefer to go back to the tried-and-true, the skin selector is at the bottom of the forums.

I do not care for how the textured elements interact with the flat colored cells. the yellow/black stripes are fine though.
And that light purple really pops out - which is something text should do, not only slightly important bonus data.
Woooo!

Honestly though, this is a great skin and quite a surprise when I was looking through the forums. Always great to see the effort that the staff puts into the site and forum.

Oh, huh, this is rather nice. Close enough to the purple to seem familiar, thankfully not as much of a contrast as Classic Gears.

Didn't switch automatically for me though, odd.

They're Stunticon themed.

"Disabled people donít have special needs. We have very reasonable human needs. Our needs include freedom from abuse, violence, and mistreatment, the right to autonomy and self-direction, the right to represent ourselves, equal opportunity for education and employment, the right to accommodation, and societal inclusion and acceptance.

The need for accommodation isnít a ďspecial needĒ. Itís a basic human right. Itís a leveling of the playing field that allows us the same opportunities and chances as non-disabled people."

Thank you both! It's a bit eye-searing, but by design. Plus, everytime I see the caution stripes next to the fuschia, I go "Thrust, overdrive!"

We'll keep it as long as we are using this iteration of the forum software. After that, I plan on making a skin that would use some of these elements.

Those are understandable and valid critiques. Some of them I don't agree with, but others are worth considering. Thanks for checking it out!

Yeah, I just hit refresh, and had to check my calender at first. icon-fire.gif

Then I scrolled up and saw the Botcon coverage banner and understood, and I'm getting used to it.

Yeah, for those folks who need some more chilled-out colors, don't worry, I'm not offended. I basically designed the site that I would want to go to, which I assumed would be an audience of me and a dozen other blind people. icon-fire.gif
