A lot of mine have somehow gotten so floppy that floor polish doesn't help. May need superglue

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

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.

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

So last night I had this dream where I was in a store, and there were two TFs I had never seen or heard of. One was Deluxe DotM Soundwave, with green accents on his robot parts, inexplicably called "Que". Box-art was still the same, no effort made to make the toothy Decepticon maw any more benevolent-looking.

Another was "Suburban", who I guess was supposed to be Crowbar, but didn't look like him. He had a different word in every sentence of his bio bolded, and every one of them could have been his name but it was so random that I couldn't figure out which one it was supposed to be.

What kinds of toy dreams have y'all had? Which ones do you hope and pray stay figments of your imagination and never come anywhere near the shelves?

I did actually have a dream once where I was checking the price of a new Fortress Maximus (about the size of Primus) in Universe/Generations styled packaging. Pretty detailed dream, such as the fact that it was, like I said, about Primus sized, the head turned into another robot but it was NOT a double headmaster, and there was a lot more sculpted detail on it, like adding a lot of minicon ports.

I'd love to see that in RL somehow.

I have nightmares about the day I passed up getting the Bomber Megatron and Starscream 2 pack at Canadian tire because "megatron wasn't a jet." ... coulda had a 'thunderclash' too but nope "I was a big boy then" who'd only just bought G2 Devestator for the irony of having the disposable income to just walk in and buy all 6 Constructicons.

Spank me for the 1st of only 2 times in my life BAW... I'll show you parents... 'can't get them all. pick one HA!'

yeah should'a got the ones at Canadian tire instead of the Woolworth's going out of business sale 3 dollar constructicons

Coincidentally, just the other night I had a dream that I was watching a new Transformers movie on the big screen. It was set between Revenge of the Fallen and Dark of the Moon.

I'm not sure if that counts as a nightmare or not.

Had the latest in a long series of "finding knockoffs amidst the real things" dreams. Movie Starscream with Prime Starscream's proportions, and a "Prime" Skywarp who was Movie Starscream with Stealth Iron Man's colors.

I once dreamt of a Deluxe F-22 Classics Starscream with a wing sword like Armada Starscream, but he had Prime Starscream-ish colors.

I also dreamt of a Samurai prowl toy before it was even announced, and dreamt of a Lugnut Supreme-like toy before the finale of TFA.

Transformers is a brand that really has something for everyone. We are a darn lucky fandom.

I dreamt of power core combiner Soundwave where Ravage becomes the body, Rumble/Frenzy and Laserbeak/Buzzsaw become the legs, then after that comes Soundblaster where Ratbat is the body, Slugfest, Overkill, Squawktalk and Beastbox become limbs.

This one... Clear memories of walking right past both this and Thunderclash Prime, don't know what the deal was- how they got there... but I know I picked up Megatron and Starscream and said ...Nope This is not something Megatron would do with Starscream. and then Picking up the thunderclash box and looking -for a long time- at the box art, and I remember thinking "who are they trying to fool with this? there is no Way that Cab section turns into that robot.


Would like to see Onslaught before the Titan Masters.

A couple of years ago I dreamt I saw a new line with minimalist packaging - mostly white with black text and a little red, not unlike the MUJI Lego craft sets, that was part of a Hasbro environmental initiative.

The one I took off the peg was a Scout class Ramhorn, an Autobot packaged in alt-mode which was a bright red robotic triceratops. There was also a black and clear plastic Decepticon hovercraft.

Disappointed when I woke up, loved the packaging and Ramhorn seemed pretty cool.

I constantly dream about finding BW and Universe stuff on the racks alongside whatever the current line is, gathering the ones I want and heading to the register only to wake up.

Dreamt of a carded Basic-sized Optimus Primal and a Voyagers BM Silverbolt once and pretty sure there was a new Nightbeat and Scorponok in there, too.

Ok I just woke up in total fustration cos of a dream the story

Ok I was shoping online for Fs and came to a mom and pop online toy store where there when tons of lose G1s but I dint order anything but I noticed they talk about a connetor for the MM combiners like Six Turbo that allowed the random guy pluged in the back to be placed better
And that certan stored where still selling the connector so off I went to serch
Fast forward and I guess the serch was still on and I was at a newly hugey remodeled covenance store known around heres as Buc'ees and they sometime carry toys so I went looking but there toy section had moved and well I had managed to get to look in the back room
And come to find out they where a distrabution node for a lot of online retailers
Includeing the online mom and pop toy shop there was a section of shelf crammed with G1s
The firs I spoted was a Rodimus but I went digging but a lot of it I already owned
Now fustration sets in....
