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.

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

I just got a bunch from Wal-Mart Thursday night and I have just started opening them up and trying different combos. So far I really like Crankcase w/ Destrons and Sledge's minicon. The translucent purple really adds a nice splash of color to an otherwise boring color scheme.

Any suggestions for other combos?

On a whim, I partnered Beacon (Steelshot's partner) with robot mode Stakeout. I attached him upside down to the vehicle mode Mini-Con port, with his searchlight-knees pointed over Stakeout's shoulder, giving him a... um... rescue lamp? Well, it seems to fit, anyway. It helps that that puts his gun arm in position to point forward.

Huffer + Rallybots = AWESOME.

Also Skyburst or Darkstream + the Aerialbot Drones from Crankcase and Stakeout.

I really like Sledge with Steamhammer's drones; his own arms become extra weapon arms in combined mode. Also, Icepick looks really good with Crankcase's drones.

I tried, but PCC hits me with an obsessive compulsion only possessed by 8 year old boys and anal retentive fanboys.

cross-team mixing? Preposterous!
cross-faction mixing? Oh hell naw!

Makes me wish they at least left the drones unmarked as far as faction symbols go.

If you can't even convince yourself to mix them between teams, I don't see how not marking their factions would help you. icon-depth.gif

Even more delicious, symmetrical limbs taken from Stakeout and Bombshock.

I did a few.

Darkstream with the Destrons (the red and grey on Darkstream really complements the duller tones of the Destrons)
Crankcase with the Destructicons (IMO it gives the whole team a "Mad Max" feel)
Heavytread and Groundspike with the Protectobots
Stakeout with Beacon (I'll have to try Andrusi's robot-mode-shouler-lights deal)
Mudslinger with his PCC head out and Razorbeam to be a minotaurbot and his axe.

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

While Skyhammer is an awful figure on his own, he makes for a very nice torso. His colors match up to the Crankcases drones, and slap Darkstream on there for a bit more blue and he looks menacing!

My favorite limb set is... I have no names for them...
The plow fronted destruction leg
the a-10 jet arm
the drill armed construction arm/dual missile platform arm
the steamroller leg/red racecar leg

I tend to leave them hooked up to Crankcase.

HeavyTread would seem to be the intended recipient, though I think Steelshot and Bombshock will work well too. Sadly, Heavy tread is the last of the non-redeco PCCs I do not have icon-screamer.gif
