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.

This day last year I walked five miles to Asda to collect all the Defensor components. I was a dumb kid.

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 how 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

If this does come state-side, would they clip the smokestacks again? I really want this, but with the high price and everything else I want that's putting a hurting on my wallet, I would *love* a cheaper alternative. I can do without the trailer.

I think they would likely be clipped off, likely at the spot where the thickness changes.

Who knows what the release here will be like though, if at all. Both times MP-1 was released he was uglified.

Looking at the recent US MP releases, though, they are getting better at not bastardizing them. Grimlock is, I think, the best version of that mold, and Hot Rod had a toy-accurate color scheme and even extra accessories to make up for his lost bits.

Perhaps the US release will have a Megatron gun. And maybe a Peter Cullen voice box.

I forgot that spaghetti was a pasta really.

Since the smokestacks telescope, it might not matter for the U.S. release.

Added the final vid! It's a comparison discussion between MP-10 and the original MP Convoy, featuring the GMfan101 of Canada.

Grimlock was pretty nice, and I can appreciate the Skywarp, but other than that I'm not impressed. MP-1 was ruined by dirt and small stacks, his repaint was ruined by pastel and neon paint, Starscream was nice in theory but ruined by the dirt wash and black joints. Rodimus Prime? I love the Targetmaster but he lacks way too many paint apps to be called a Masterpiece. If I wanted to hold something toy accurate in my hands, I already have. He was designed specifically to look like Floro's show model, even down to the fake window crotch. To not take advantage of that defeats the purpose of his design. And the trailer and "4" modes is one of the things that made him very special too so he just isn't complete to me. Much as MP-10 won't be if he doesn't have his trailer. Just something special about having the whole package.

Course, we didn't even get MP-5 so no point in going there.

They never telescope down far enough, I don't think. In fact, they're more likely to break than MP-1 I would think due to being thinner at the top and having no lateral give. We'll see.
