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.

@  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 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

Good panel. Lots of cool info there. icon-hotrod.gif

Sadly, no one (including myself) thought to ask if they'll at least mention the inconsistency of saying various characters don't have alt modes/Earth modes when they clearly have the elements of them. I know that on the technical side it has to do with the cost of new models, but in-fiction it'd be nice to have a reason why Skyquake obviously had all the parts of a jet, yet was explicitly said not to have an Earth mode (IIRC, a similar thing was said about Wheeljack, who has... well, wheels).

It's nit-picking on a certain level, I know, but it's one of those things that would make the world seem a little more... "complete" ("tidy"?) to have a reason instead of just pretending the kibble isn't there.

That would be an act of extremely poor tact.

"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."

I'm kind of glad that I can continue calling the troopers Eradicons because I love that name.
Calling the toys vehicons also seems like trademark protection.

I do too, but I know a few people who won't give the show the benefit of the doubt cuz Miko annoys them.

I'm simply curious as to how the the people behind the show view that scenario.

Miko annoys the living hell out of me but I've still watched most of the episodes.

Given their track records, Orci and Kurtzman would probably go "WE HAD NOTHING TO DO WITH MIKO AT ALL IT WAS ALL SOME OTHER GUY BLAME HIM BLAME HIM BUT LOVE US!".

You're far too young to be this bitter and angry at the world....

You mean like how Bay immediately pointed his finger at Reno Wilson and Tom Kenny after that? icon-primal.gif

Transformers is a brand that really has something for everyone. We are a darn lucky fandom.

Dude, Wilson and Kenny SAID they were the ones characterizing those guys.

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.

It would surprise you that most people (based on the cheering their voice actors and lines got and the lack of mean spirited comments) at BotCon like the kids and were even asking about making more articulated versions of them.

I personally think they're great, on par with any of the robots on the series.
