there remains an Omega Supreme-sized hole in my Animated collection that not even 3P wants to fill....

@  Nutjob R/T : (29 May 2016 - 07:23 PM)

Just pulled out the Animated box after a few years in storage. Giving it some time is the godhonest truth, these things are awesome

His big scene in the big Astrotrain battle for leadership was also great. Too bad Starscream suckerpunched him after he beat everybody else up

Transfer Uplinks look cool but in the wrong hands could be OP. Hmmm Just a funny thought what if Mainframe from G1 had a TU? He could make about anything period. Also does anyone know if CatSCAN ever received a spark? His wiki article says he is a spark less build when he was created surly he has one now.

@  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.

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

If you have a "5 Below" discount store near you, I suggest you check them out. I found RTS Legends Optimus, Megatron, Starscream, Gold Bumblebee, and Trailcutter there, all at $3 a pop.

They also have Lego Minifigures. And a lot of candy.

Well, I grabbed Meggy for the "we may never get this again" factor, Bee because YAY GOLDBUG HOMAGE, and Trailcutter because... uh... he was only $3. I didn't really find myself needing another Prime or Starscream, though.

Good toys though.

And I bought Trailcutter because its Trailbreaker! The guy who never had an actual toy since his original in 1984 (not counting homages who aren't really him).

Just because you can't win doesn't mean you stop working.

I heard people are finding the gray helmet Starscreams occasionally too.

Closest one is about an hour and a half away. That a bit too far for something that might be there.

And I already found all the Legends up Canada-way, so I don't really need more of them. Looks like an interesting store though.

Does this place carry anything besides the Legends?

The one I went to only had 3 Gold Bumblebees on the pegs, so they were really picked over.

Yes some reports on TFW2005 say they would find 1 or 2 gray helmeted ones for every 10 to 15 black helmet ones.
