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.

@  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.

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

You're right Cat. The DST website confirms it.

I'm pretty sure I'm the one who made the error in the first place so icon-wildride.gif and I fixed it.

That's the only time I've ever seen them drawn with teeth to my memory. That they're not painted like teeth kind of proves they're not intended to be there.

Heavy Metal War has a weird thing with teeth. At one point we even get a rather more detailed shot of Spike's teeth and gums than usual as well.

In Ultimate Doom Part 3, when Brawn gets shot, in the following close up of his face you can see teeth and tongue.


And in Heavy Metal War, I think even Megatron was drawn with teeth and tongue when he was shocked by the giant Autobot hologram.

But as Walky pointed out, it's very unlikely that those were supposed to be drawn at all.

Did up two articles on DOTM merchandise:

DOTM Jumbo Coloring & Activity Book by Bendon.

I've been meaning to do the former for a few months now, but every time I sat down to do it I kept getting sidetracked or interrupted.

It's also probably worth noting that both episodes were clearly handled by the same team of animators at Toei, so this slip up seems to have been restricted only when these guys animated any episodes. I think teeth first started cropping up in Masterforce; Toei certainly changed their animation style to include for them by Victory.

Huh. Just noticed there's an Optimus Prime bust missing from the DST section.

It's of just his head, neck, the base is the top of his torso/shoulders.

It's the one on the left in this photo (the flash completely missed the white writing that says his name on the front)

Today IDW released a promo book called Dark Secrets of Infestation 2, this year's equivalent to Classified Secrets of Infestation. There's no Transformers text story this time, but there's a four page comic story. It's unclear if it's just a preview of Infestation 2 #1 or an exclusive story for this freebie, and HoS Optimus appears in one panel. Is it worth its own page, especially if it turns out the story pages are actually from an issue that'll have its own page later?

Heck, I likely can't even afford whatever the NYCC set is going for right now.

The NYCC comic did not come with the NYCC set. They were completely separate items.

And the NYCC set is still going for $30 because it's still in stock at HTS.

Could there be an article about evolution of character designs? From early Diaclone/Microman designs to final animation model sheets. Or could there be a gallery of earlier designs for each characters bellow the trivia section (the missing designs would be filled with pics from first 4 TF issues as possible earlier designs)?
