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

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.

@  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

Beast Megatron (love the new purple, don't like the black face)
http://higekumatoyto...entry-1432.html

Optimus Primal (nearly identical to the Hasbro one)
http://higekumatoyto...entry-1431.html

Axalon (looks awesome)
http://higekumatoyto...entry-1430.html

Unicron (darker colors than Hasbro's)
http://blog-imgs-32....24005149b3e.jpg

Twincast, Stripes, and Nightstalker
http://higekumatoyto...entry-1428.html
Twincast does have the larger chest (and obviously the anime colored face) but it's been retool to remove the extra detailing. I LOVE, LOVE how Nighstalker's tape mode is nearly identical to Ravage - that is frickin' sweet!

Soundblaster, Enemy, and Wing Thing
http://higekumatoyto...entry-1427.html
Soundblaster has the newly colored face, modified stickers (all which look to be applied at the factory), and at least in this gallery is missing his dial. Enemy mimics the missing stripe stickers via paint apps (Encore Rumble & Frenzy were just bare).

Is anyone else's older release of Beast Megatron suffering from slightly-loose hip joints? The joints on mine have gotten loose enough that he slowly dips downwards in beast mode, only stopping once his T.rex head is inches from touching the ground. It's making it slightly tempting to get this absurdly-overpriced release. icon-wildride.gif

Axalon looks pretty good; it's amazing how the paint job helps make it look fairly different from Energon Sharkticon. icon-ironhide.gif

Axalon looks great. At that price, though, I'll have to contemplate it a bit.

The cassettes... nnnnnn so sad I can't get them.

Beast Megatron actually looks nice. But at that price it's a no go, edging toward a not ever.

Well, I'm in love with Megatron's darker purple and Axalon. Dammit.


And I never noticed until now that Cybertron Optimus' beast forearms/robot thighs are molded different from the BW release.

Like if you went to hell, and it was full of blood, and that blood was on fire, and it was raining blood, then maybe that would be enough blood! Eh… but probably not.

Man, Twincast and Soundblaster look great. The cassettes turned out perfectly too for the most part, I still love the crazy choices.

Hopefully I'll be able to get at least Twincast at some point, since the mold would be new for me.

The Vector Oracle Micron is actually for any Transformers toy (including Dark of the Moon), so there's no indication he's from the movie.

Since he's referred to as an Arms Micron, Prime would be the logical assumption.

Since we have the bios for Soundblaster's tapes transcribed, I ran them through Google Translate. Am I correct in thinking Enemy's sonic power is to make his enemies too angry to think straight? And that Wingthing is explicitly a drone with a personality program?

I got my United figures today.

Axalon is awesome and Megatron is pretty cool (love the new purple). Unicron is nice, but Primal is a wash. I'll have to dig out my originals to see if there is anything different about Primal.

We're already seen that the surfboard combines the paint masks of the previous two versions and that the Maximal symbol is in Primal's butt instead of the outside.

They're balljoints, so they're just wearing down. Stick a dot of superglue on the ball and then put the leg back on and work it around some. Good as new.

They didn't change it. They've been backwards since the Cybertron (ie second) release of Primal.
Fall of Cybertron will blow your mind. That is all.
