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.

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 would have thought from the movie that he was at least 10 or 11. But Headmasters is set 6 years later, right? And he seems younger than he does in the movie.

10 or so. Head Masters is only a year later than Season 3/2010 in the Japanese continuity.

From what I've seen, they've never explained Daniel's age disparity with The Movie being in 2005 and 2010 (the Japanese version of the third season) being in, well, 2010.

either that or in stasis until they got to that other planet in headmasters and set up a space bridge portal...

sure living in space with giant robots is cool and all.. but spending 10-15 looking out the same one window?

yeah put me in the freezer too

Space Bridges are super fast and convenient and so are Robot Trains. But interstellar travel never really seemed to take that long in Transformers anyway.

Okay, this is peculiar...I remember Quez reading it in one of the timelines, I remember transcribing it, and there's an invisible-ified note about it on Daniel's page on the wiki...but I can't for the life of me find where we originally posted it. Frustrating!

This is the thing. I asked this before on the Wiki and couldn't get an answer. It *doesn't* appear to be in either of the timelines, so far as I can see. One was in the Kiss Players book, which covered all of history, the other was on the Atari/Autorooper packaging, which I *think* just covered the events of KP itself - the J-G1 timeline on the wiki is both of those timelines put together.

Aha! Found it!

We were starting to think we were crazy too, since we looked through both timelines and couldn't find anything.

And the reason is because it's not in the timeline proper, but in the "Encyclopedia" section of the Doctor Bronner-like printing all over the Autrooper's packaging.

Under "Daniel", it says "A young American boy whom Hot Rodimus befriended on Earth before the Unicron War. When Transformers and humanity were at odds, he escaped to space with his father Spike and others. There, he was involved in an accident and is currently in cold sleep."

Maybe it was a brain injury.

(Given how geeky the KP timeline is, it's probably the injury from when he was chomped by a robot dinosaur.)
