I do love how they did the "Death! ...by snu-snu!" scene, with Fry and Brannigan's expressions shifting between horrified and delighted.

@  Lisbon Virgo : (06 February 2016 - 08:46 PM)

Yes, please?

@  MEDdMI : (06 February 2016 - 07:48 PM)

Death by snu-snu

@Smokey Sorry to here that.

I'd laugh more at cancer jokes if cancer hadn't killed my aunt six years ago.

@Dracula Hey the crab is cool too but this DNA monster is giving them both a bad name.

I like Cancer in Masterforce. Otherwise it's the worst and I don't understand how it keeps getting cast in everything

@  Plokatron : (05 February 2016 - 02:34 AM)

No Cancer is Disgraceful, Disgusting and Despicable! Blasted genetic abnormality thinking it owns the place. I worry for any who have it this year. 2016 looks to be a bad year for cancer sufferers.

Can anyone point me to the wiki topic on what is under animated transformers helmets? I know I saw it a few weeks back. Also it is my birthday! So my wish for the forums is "Everyone take care and be safe" I think that's a reasonable request em?

@  Plokatron : (02 February 2016 - 06:12 PM)

Also I got my new Pc at last.

@  Plokatron : (02 February 2016 - 06:12 PM)

I still have it. Not letting it go.

Anyway I just ordered a copy of Allspark Almanac and the HoS graphic novel. Can't wait to see da trainsformers!

@  Plokatron : (01 February 2016 - 06:06 PM)

Very true.

@  Smokey : (01 February 2016 - 06:06 PM)

Also rat slime.

@  Plokatron : (01 February 2016 - 06:06 PM)

Yes but not Ghost slime. Just human and Bug slime.

@  Smokey : (01 February 2016 - 06:03 PM)

It doesn't matter what color slime NYC has, it's still been covered in slime for its entire existence.

@  Plokatron : (01 February 2016 - 03:05 PM)

Not to mention the series is getting a reboot this year. In July so none of that junk counts.

@  Plokatron : (01 February 2016 - 02:32 PM)

Not that kind of slime!!! Has New York ever been pink?! No that city has so much brown that it makes COD look bright and colorful.

@  Smokey : (01 February 2016 - 02:27 PM)

New York's ALWAYS been covered with slime.

@  Plokatron : (01 February 2016 - 02:21 PM)

Also since New York wasn't covered in slime back in 89 it's quite moot isn't it?

@  Plokatron : (01 February 2016 - 02:15 PM)

Stupid ideas that I can't understand why we keep bring it up. Are we humans just that desperate to panic ourselves?

@  Smokey : (01 February 2016 - 12:51 PM)

Nope! But in fairness, I was pretty drunk at the time.

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.
