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.

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've heard a lot of speculation about the botshots and the game aspect so I thought I'd give a picture of the back and the general idea behind it.

Each bot has a spinner in his chest with 3 faces. A fist power, a blaster power, and a melee weapon power. You spin these around, choosing which face you want to appear. You then crash the figures into each other where they pop up into bot mode. Fist beats melee, melee beats blaster, blaster beats fist. In case both threw a particular one, the highest power number wins.

That was my Toys R Us store that I work at in Topeka, KS. The red guy on the cardback is my Botshot, Sentinal Prime.

There was only one of him in the case. He's transparent red plastic and turns into a little fire truck.

heheheh. We got a truck today.

Back when I was working overnights the week before christmas, I made sure every box of Transformers we had was put out. That way we had no backstock whatsoever coming in to the new year. You're seeing the dividends of that work. icon-arcee.gif
