There is no war in Ba Sing Se.

@  Foffy the Sheep : (29 May 2016 - 05:11 AM)

We have always been at war with East Asia.

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

@  Pennpenn : (29 May 2016 - 01:00 AM)

Of course he has. I mean, remember when Trailbreaker had to pretend to be him in Masquerade?

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.

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)

@  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

My hometown is where the Volvo power train plant is, which was formerly the Mack power train plant, and still makes parts for Mack trucks.

Well, this weekend they're having an open house. I was initially going to pass on it because I've seen that plant, because I used to work in their HR department.

But then I found out that there's a special guest:

Megatron.

Or rather, the truck they used in the film. Has this appeared at other locations? Is it worth checking out?

Edit: It's this event, and I've decided I'm going. Pictures will follow.

Edit 2: Pictures I took are here

I don't know and yeas. At the least you can lay under the truck and have some one take a picture.

Hey, I live within walking distance of the Children's Museum of Indianapolis, and they have the Bumblebee prop sitting right inside the entrance. The way I see it, you have slightly less of an excuse than I do to see something cool and TF-related and snap a few photos.

And come to think of it, have we even seen that much of it for publicity stuff, like we have for the Chevys?

Go, and then send some nice photos!

The little Jetfire exhibit next to the SR-71 at the Udvar-Hazy annex is pretty neat. Appearently Bay gave most of the props they used filming there to the museum.

And in a year or so, Discovery will be behind the SR-71, so we'll have two Transformers film aircraft there.
