Oprah's couch has withstood many years of OPRAH. It can withstand ANYTHING.

@  TheMightyMol... : (31 May 2016 - 05:32 AM)

Oprah's couch has been reinforced by many years of smug. It can withstand great pressure.

@  Pennpenn : (31 May 2016 - 05:17 AM)

That just asks more questions about Oprah's couch, then.

@  unluckiness : (31 May 2016 - 04:43 AM)

Can it? Oprah's couch seems fine.

@  TheMightyMol... : (31 May 2016 - 04:42 AM)

Cruise's ego can crush planets. That counts, right?

@  Foffy the Sheep : (30 May 2016 - 07:38 PM)

Xenu is just Tom Cruise in a wig, though.

@  wonko the sane? : (30 May 2016 - 07:00 PM)

I'm pretty sure cruze just offers the planets to xenu, he doesn't actaull eat them himself.

@  Foffy the Sheep : (30 May 2016 - 06:57 PM)

And they both eat planets.

@  wonko the sane? : (30 May 2016 - 06:56 PM)

well, it was one or the other. I might have been confused because they both have huge heads.

@  Foffy the Sheep : (30 May 2016 - 06:35 PM)

I've never heard that before. Are you sure you're not thinking of Tom Cruise?

@  wonko the sane? : (30 May 2016 - 06:32 PM)

I thought galactus was supposed to appear differently depending on which species is looking at him?

@  Foffy the Sheep : (30 May 2016 - 04:55 PM)

Galactus isn't goofy-looking. His hat is the grandest of all hats!

@  PlutoniumBoss : (30 May 2016 - 12:58 PM)

And we run into something like the Galactus Fashion Conundrum. Are YOU going to be the one to go up to his face and tell him he's goofy-looking?

@  Foffy the Sheep : (30 May 2016 - 12:32 PM)

Maybe Miles's villains think you're lame!

@  unluckiness : (30 May 2016 - 11:07 AM)

I don't mind Miles but his villains are kinda lame.

@  Bass X0 : (30 May 2016 - 09:29 AM)

I just thankful they didn't have a black Peter Parker.

@  tffan01 : (30 May 2016 - 09:09 AM)

I would have preferred Peter Parker. But If they really wanted to make a non-Peter Parker lead, they could have made Spider-Man 2099, at least it has a gimmick (futurism). While Miles, imo isn't that different from Peter Parker.

@  Locoman : (30 May 2016 - 08:52 AM)

That would be cool. Ultimate Universe kind of went off the rails toward the end, but I always liked Miles.

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

@  Paladin : (29 May 2016 - 07:51 PM)

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

@  Nutjob R/T : (29 May 2016 - 07:23 PM)

Just pulled out the Animated box after a few years in storage. Giving it some time is the godhonest truth, these things are awesome

@  Touch My Thighs : (29 May 2016 - 07:12 PM)

@  Locoman : (29 May 2016 - 04:14 PM)

it happens to everyone. Sometimes interests are cyclical.

@  Patchouli Kn... : (29 May 2016 - 04:13 PM)

Well, for starters, it might be time to think of a new username...

@  tffan01 : (29 May 2016 - 04:09 PM)

I'm losing interest in TF. Help.

@  Patchouli Kn... : (29 May 2016 - 03:00 PM)

It means you're not very well-rounded.

He who doesn't like pie are destined to become the contents of pie.

@  Foffy the Sheep : (29 May 2016 - 12:09 PM)

No you don't. You think you do, but you really don't.

@  Echowarrior : (29 May 2016 - 10:37 AM)

I like pie.

@  Pennpenn : (29 May 2016 - 05:18 AM)

There is no war in Ba Sing Se.

@  Foffy the Sheep : (29 May 2016 - 05:11 AM)

We have always been at war with East Asia.

@  unluckiness : (29 May 2016 - 04:04 AM)

His big scene in the big Astrotrain battle for leadership was also great. Too bad Starscream suckerpunched him after he beat everybody else up

@  Pennpenn : (29 May 2016 - 01:00 AM)

Of course he has. I mean, remember when Trailbreaker had to pretend to be him in Masquerade?

@  zephyrX9 : (29 May 2016 - 12:47 AM)

offroad has always been there

@  Plokatron : (28 May 2016 - 11:18 PM)

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.

@  tffan01 : (28 May 2016 - 02:33 PM)

@beetleman, ok.

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.

And depending on where you live, even American stores

The original comic had both Japanese and English, but I edited the scans to have just English and in bigger font (so it's easier to read).

I'm surprised to see them follow the whole Rodimus never being comfortable as a Prime thing so faithfully. I was under the impression the Japanese had their own interpretation of most of the characters.

Thanks again for this Hydra, it explains exactly how Black Rodimus came to be. That it was Rodimus' feelings of doubt, Starscream seizing an opportunity to try and get revenge by using the Clone Synthesizer to give Black Rodimus a body. It also explains how the Black Rodimus (not Convoy) was able to get the matrix from Rodimus Convoy (knowing that Hot Rod at full ramming speed was at least able to topple Galvatron twice). So Awesome!

Randy

Edit: I'm glad to see my assumption was right that Rodimus Prime unknowingly created Black Rodimus (it seems to imply both emotionally as well as physically due to his dream like state).

I'm using this Black Rodimus Convoy in a completely different way.

To me he is the color scheme that Rodimus Prime becomes when he is possessed by Unicron in the Marvel U.K. stories Shadow of Evil / White Fire. He doesn't have a Decepticon insignia though.

Yup, this Rodimus was intended to be a different character than the G1 Dark Hot Rod, who had been created by Megatron.

This is more of a physical manifestation of Rodimus's insecurities, given a body by the clone synthesizer.

Rodimus's difficulties grappling with the responsibilities of leadership have been a pretty prominent focus
of the character in additional Japanese fiction, such as Macrocosmic Seekers:

This is also a great read, if you haven't seen it yet.

Thanks again for the info Hydra. I know there was some question if the two Black Rodimus were the same character or not (particularly among the TFWiki people). Nice to have confirmation one way or another.

I would have thought they were different characters due to their different origins, existing before or after the events of the movie, and the fate of the 2001 guy.
