Guess no one has the comic then. Blast I need that close up of Ironhide's helmet!

@  Arazyr : (11 February 2016 - 01:41 PM)

Happy Birthday, young'un. 8^)

@  D Buster Prime : (11 February 2016 - 01:21 PM)

It's my BIRTHDAY! I'm 35 years young!

@  BillBarclay : (11 February 2016 - 10:54 AM)

nah! it's Venus that's going to Botcon!

@  Paladin : (11 February 2016 - 10:45 AM)

could've also meant Cree Summer...

@  Dracula : (11 February 2016 - 08:39 AM)

Good going, Blackarachnia. I heard it's been hard for her to get roles after Hasbro brought in Airachnid.

@  BillBarclay : (11 February 2016 - 06:34 AM)

you mean Venus Terzo! she's supposed to be going to Botcon

@  Whirl Maximus : (11 February 2016 - 03:23 AM)

Blackarachnia was on Supernatural last night.

@  Plokatron : (10 February 2016 - 11:08 PM)

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.

@  TheMightyMol... : (09 February 2016 - 03:22 PM)

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.

@  NotVeryKnightly : (09 February 2016 - 01:31 PM)

"bats"

@  Dracula : (09 February 2016 - 01:09 PM)

Nice and soft, you say? This isn't even my final form!!!!

@  Telly : (09 February 2016 - 12:47 PM)

its nice and soft like YOU dracula *bats eyelashes* and thatll probly be the last thing i post in this thing now lol

@  Dracula : (09 February 2016 - 08:52 AM)

It's course and rough...wait that doesn't work

@  NotVeryKnightly : (09 February 2016 - 08:43 AM)

@  BillBarclay : (08 February 2016 - 04:58 PM)

btw one of the Transformers Victory intro's(not the original music used) on YouTube uses one of the pieces of music used on the US version of Transformers Armada

@  Rycochet : (08 February 2016 - 03:55 PM)

You should read it again, it gets better with age!

@  Whirl Maximus : (08 February 2016 - 03:46 PM)

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

@  Rycochet : (08 February 2016 - 03:31 PM)

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.

@  Rycochet : (08 February 2016 - 02:36 PM)

If you think that's cool, wait until you see what other stuff we're hiding from you.

@  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)

It doesn't count those using it on other pages.

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

If it's the one by IPB Shoutbox, it means the number of people who are viewing the Shoutbox page.

@  tffan01 : (08 February 2016 - 10:34 AM)

Where's the red numbers?

@  Lush City : (08 February 2016 - 09:23 AM)

Ok total newb to the shoutbox, but what do the red numbers in the corner mean?

@  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.

@  Dracula : (08 February 2016 - 08:55 AM)

You used MUNITION CHIPS in TOYS??

@  Whirl Maximus : (08 February 2016 - 07:48 AM)

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)

@  Plokatron : (08 February 2016 - 02:07 AM)

We've seen Hasbro lean towards CHUG and G1 style figures being painted to reflect their toys(Classics Astrotrain, MP Rodimus, etc) and we've seen Takara take those same figures and paint them to reflect their cartoon models. This question is inspired by that. If you were the product manager at Hasbro....which one would you choose/prefer?

I prefer cartoon overall, but I'd like it if Hasbro does toy and TakaraTomy does cartoon so we get both. Of course there should be leeway to make whatever deco look good and not omit details as a result (like the lack of painted details on MP Rodimus Prime's forearms and head come to mind for omitting details for trying to be really slavish to the original design).

I don't care for "accuracy" so much - I'd even take decos that are neither toy nor cartoon "accurate" but do the character justice overall.

I do like things like Classics Megatron though, whose colors seem to be inspired by his Action Master deco and Fusion Tank.

I'm ok with either type of homage, but I don't necessarily want either. I just want a good deco for the character. E.g., I vastly prefer Classics Starscream to the later Universe cartoon-homage Starscream. I like most of the Universe deco ok, but I absolutely hate the upside-down Decepticon symbols. I hated it in the original show, and I've hated every instance where it's been repeated since. Meanwhile, the fact that Classics Starscream's deco doesn't match either the toy or the cartoon is just fine by me.

Cartoon/Show accuracy. I can't think of too many off the top of my head who looked better as toys than on the show. Maybe the Technobots, but then they barely showed up on the show...

Although, mentioning Toon accuracy, can we get Octane as Grimlock, Cyclonus as Onslaught and some of the other AKOM flubbs?
Clearing out some old TFs and Mugenbine in my BST Thread. You know you want some of these.

Obviously carton accuracy. But with certain car guys, I like the toy sticker details like Mirage's classic sponsor logos or Prowl's proper police details that both versions were missing. That's what Reprolabels is for, at least when they're not pushing their tacky original sets.

I love this idea.

I don't care where is get their inspiration form so long as one can look at the file product and say with out a doubt, "That is Nightbeat, just look at the colors and the distinctive head."

I'm not a fan of voting on peoples posts. it just seems very passive aggressive to click 'down vote' and not add anything to the thread. and up votes are exactly the same. to my mind the whole point of a forum is discussion and being able to just easily agree or disagree takes the discussion out of the equation.

I'm generally happy with whatever looks good, myself.

But I'd really like it if we got nods to other continuities' versions of the character. But looking good comes first.

Nah, more like silver Jazz(Movie) or white Skywarp(Machine Wars). Stuff like that.

Or Armada Starscream colored Starscream.

Or a Bumblebee with black stripes. I like that idea too so long as they make them different enough that they could be some one other that Bumblebee Starscream or Jazz.
