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.

@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)

Aw, you ruined it.

@  tffan01 : (24 May 2016 - 07:58 AM)

@robowang, I would have laughed at the joke if I knew who is Brian Kilby

@  Benbot : (24 May 2016 - 07:48 AM)

Everyone quickly say something so it scrolls down

@  Robowang : (24 May 2016 - 07:48 AM)

I love this board. I'm still convinced you're all Brian Kilby.

Thanks! The certificate and postcard were both sent to me for the Instant Fan Club this year. I got them to sign the Don't Let's Start single at a NYC in-store around 2005.

Elsewhere I have a signed Gigantic DVD from another in-store around 2003, and Factory Showroom and Then CD booklets signed by Linnell from when I interviewed him for college radio in 1998.

Your home-office is so tidy, I dunno if I wanna go clean mine or just blow it up with some C4 and start fresh icon-fire.gif

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

Why, I used Goldbug!

Like most good ideas, I stole it from someone else. I don't remember who made the discovery, but you can pop off the head of a G1 Goldbug, shave down the sides a bit, and glue it right on Legends Goldbug. The effect is indeed very nice, even when you don't do a very good job, which I didn't.

Here's something new: Animation production cels!



I've been a huge fan of classic animation (especially Warner Bros.) for decades, but I'd always thought owning real animation art would be out of my reach. In January, I discovered a guy at the Melrose Trading Post flea market who sells production cels from mostly 1970s-1990s cartoons for very reasonable prices. He inspired me to start checking eBay regularly for good deals. Between him and eBay, I've now started a very pleasing little collection, and I've spent relatively little money.


The first cel I bought from the flea market dude, for $40. It's Bugs Bunny from a 1970s Kool-Aid commercial for the Latin American market. The Kool-Aid packets are real wrappers, glued right on the cel! Someday I'll have a "real" Bugs Bunny cel (okay, probably still never from the 1940s-1950s, those cost thousands), but this is a fun stand-in.


He threw in this dynamic He-Man cel with the Bugs. I added the printed background from someone's She-Ra DVD screenshot--it doesn't quite line up, obviously, but the colors are a good combination, and it's almost from the right show.


I love this Ren cel, from "Big Baby Scam." What a great drawing! It makes me laugh just looking at the facial expression. On a later visit to the flea market, the guy sold me this and the next one together for $100.


"Laundry day is a very dangerous day." I don't think any other Rocko's Moden Life quote has popped into my head more, so this was perfect.


The Tick vs. The Tick. eBay purchase, around $100. A little more than other Tick cels have gone for, but as soon as I saw this one, I knew it was the one for me. From an episode based on one of the original Edlund comics, bright, bold, exciting.


The gem: from "Duck Dodgers and the Return of the 24th and 1/2 Century," from a 1980 TV special. Hand-signed by the master, Chuck Jones. At under $300, this was expensive relative to the others, but a bargain compared to similar cels. Plus I happened to tell my parents I wanted to buy it, and they made it an early birthday present.

My next priority is a Simpsons cel, ideally from seasons 2-8, ideally Milhouse. I'd also love a Stimpy or even another Ren from "Space Madness," moar classic Warner Bros., and it'd be amazing to find something from a Tiny Toons TMBG music video.
