Ponderous slagging ponderous. Hey anyone got some good Hi-res captures of Ironhide in Infestation? I really need close ups of his head for reference on a project.

@  Plokatron : (09 February 2016 - 10:46 PM)

Ok now this is funny. I ordered a used copy of HoS GN and the one I got was a library copy once. It's marked Union County on it. Thats my home county. :D It never was in my library though. Mine is named after the man who built it not the town or county but still kinda funny.

@  Tm_Silverclaw : (09 February 2016 - 09:44 PM)

Is it sad I read "KF7 Soviet" as "KFC7 Soviet"?

@  TheMightyMol... : (09 February 2016 - 03:38 PM)

Neat.

@  Dracula : (09 February 2016 - 03:35 PM)

A what? Oh, you must mean a KF7 Soviet. Common mistake.

Can I just get an AK-47 instead?

@  Telly : (09 February 2016 - 02:35 PM)

this is form 47-a. you want form 47-A. start again

@  MEDdMI : (09 February 2016 - 02:07 PM)

Now you didn't fill the form in black or blue ink. Do it again.

@  Rycochet : (09 February 2016 - 02:04 PM)

You made a typo on the first page of the forms, you're going to have to go back and fill the whole form out again, from first to final.

I am fully aware of that story and mentioning it carries the penalty of fifty towel snaps.

Shh, it's a trap!

@  TheMightyMol... : (08 February 2016 - 02:48 PM)

See, you said "awesome" and "The Beast" in the same sentence, and I think you broke my mind with the contradiction.

@  Rycochet : (08 February 2016 - 02:42 PM)

No-one tell Whirl about the awesome dinobot combiner, The Beast.

@  Plokatron : (08 February 2016 - 02:37 PM)

@Dracula Uh oh were in trouble.

@  Whirl Maximus : (08 February 2016 - 02:33 PM)

Transformers Victory's intro is awesome. And not one of you told me.... WHY?!!!

@  Rycochet : (08 February 2016 - 10:43 AM)

@  Whirl Maximus : (08 February 2016 - 09:09 AM)

Thought it would lead to hi jinks and a lark like that movie Idiocracy instead it turned into something disturbing and traumatic like that movie Small Soldiers.

I got bruticus limbs at FP last monday and Onslaught on Friday. Huge mistake, I inserted an X1000 microprocessor in each one and a extra for Bruticus, and they mopped the floor with the rest of my CW collection.

@  BillBarclay : (08 February 2016 - 06:18 AM)

i already got those(Scattershot & Onslaught) from Smyths Toys here in the UK, Asda's supposed to have the RID Warrior Class figures in(Megatronus, Blue Optimus Prime ect)

Does that mean that the story will feature Elita-1 will being converted into a bad guy, then backstab everyone, gain a large creepy fanbase in the process, slaughter tons on innocents and pretty much become impervious to any comeuppance as she becomes an invincible mary sue?

Because nobody else wants to write about the other guy's totally awesome fancharacter made official u guyze. Just like with Infestation, Drift's inclusion reeks of "editorial mandate", because Ryall and Tipton are gay for Drift.

And yet, with a proper writer at the helm, Drift could actually be *gasp* an interesting character.

It'd take some epic distancing from his crappy-ass backstory, and the loss of that bigass superspecialawesomesauce sword.
And maybe he could have a gun, too.

Buck up, maybe he'll use his spark eating sword, sacrificing himself, and it'll be for absolutely nothing.


Actually that sounds like a really cool death, too cool for Drift.

What's all this "125" jank? Are they thinking about renumbering the series by counting up all their previous TF stuff? Would that even make 120ish comics?

I swear I have been consistently disappointed by IDW since they took Furman off G1. Sales rose for a bit w/ more G1 art (hardly Furman's fault), then dropped HARD when 7 issues went by without any story progression whatsoever. Literally the autobots and decepticons were in the same place and status in issue 8 that they were in issue 1! Then we moved on to "Ongoing" and it's continuing efforts to make Michael Bay's Transformers seem worthy of praise because it remembers what bumblebee transforms into from scene to scene when IDW can't.

I'd rather they actually did something to make Drift valuable rather than having him hang around in the background.

I don't care about the collected butthurt regarding the pointless hoohaah of the characters debut. Just have him do something already.

I remember counting it before, and yeah, it'll reach 125. There were a few issues on the margin that I can't remember if they were included or excluded (New Avengers crossover, Infestation, etc) but there's a way to get it up to 125.

The ideas certainly look interesting (though the Death of Optimus Prime is nothing new since, oh, 1986) but IDW has a recent track record of having ideas sound good in preview then underwhelming when hitting the page. The current storyline actually looks like there's some love and care into it, but "Revenge of the Decepticons" was such a go-nowhere nothing storyline that there really isn't any sense of buildup for it. And you can see that just by seeing how little comments there are in the comics discussions now...

They've left out both TF: Infestation and the New Avengers crossover, by my reckoning:

Infiltration #0-6 = 0-6
Stormbringer #1-4 = 7-10
Escalation #1-6 = 11-16
Megatron Origin #1-4 = 17-20
Devastation #1-6 = 21-26
Max Dinobots #1-5 = 27-31
AHM #1-16 = 32-47
Ongoing #1-31 = 38-78
Bumblebee #1-4 = 79-82
LS/Wreckers #1-5 = 83-87
Ironhide #1-4 = 88-91
Drift #1-4 = 92-95
Heart of Darkness #1-4 = 96-99
Spotlights ? 25 = 100-124
Transformers #125- = 125+

[Disclaimer: The "totalled" numbers aren't meant to say Spotlight: Shockwave is #100 and other such "out of sequence" stuff, it's just for ease of explanation!]

With #20 we are currently at 114 issues, well 113 since HoD didn't ship this week, so yeah the 10 issues of Chaos would give us 124.
