You'll have to fight her for it. Be warned, she bites.

Then I bid the soul of your turtle.

@  DeltaSeeker : (03 May 2016 - 11:25 AM)

I want one! I can't afford it, but I want one.

@  TheMightyMol... : (03 May 2016 - 11:22 AM)

I don't have a firstborn. Your bid is invalid.

@  Smokey : (03 May 2016 - 11:20 AM)

I bid the soul of your firstborn.

@  TheMightyMol... : (03 May 2016 - 11:13 AM)

didn't know the reference before searching, but the Lizard Queen & fermentarium thing are from Simpsons. https://en.m.wikiped.../Selma's_Choice

@  Smokey : (01 May 2016 - 04:53 PM)

What the hug's a fermentarium?

@  Verno : (01 May 2016 - 04:34 PM)

'Dawn of the Predacus' not your cup of tea? Try TRANSFORMERS: UNITY for your BotCon 2016 comic.

...... *MED's hand appears in the fermentarium, getting closer to TMM, along with the Jaws theme*

@  TheMightyMol... : (01 May 2016 - 01:19 PM)

I wasn't going to go in naked, but it rotted off all my clothes. And then I was already in anyway, so......

@  Paladin : (01 May 2016 - 12:32 PM)

for the last time, stop swimming naked in the fermentarium.

@  MEDdMI : (01 May 2016 - 09:17 AM)

@  zephyrX9 : (01 May 2016 - 01:15 AM)

my salt in not getting victorion has turned into salt waiting for TR rewind to go up for preorder. ho-hum

@  Verno : (01 May 2016 - 01:05 AM)

Given how TM Megs suffers from GPS, I'm sure many people would jump at a reissue.

@  Pennpenn : (01 May 2016 - 12:32 AM)

Out of all the hypothetical Beast Wars things, the one I'd like is a leader class Transmetal Megatron

@  Verno : (30 April 2016 - 11:18 PM)

They'd make a superb duo. If TT drew the line under BW MPs after those two, I'd be perfectly content.

@  Smokey : (30 April 2016 - 11:15 PM)

I personally hope we get an MP BW Megs, especially if he has a rubber ducky he can hold, yeeess.

@  Verno : (30 April 2016 - 11:13 PM)

Bring on October and MP Primal so the anniversary celebrations can begin.

@  Smokey : (30 April 2016 - 11:06 PM)

oh hey lok its tecs birthday

@  Smokey : (30 April 2016 - 11:03 PM)

It certainly has, man. If it wasn't for BW I probably wouldn't be here.

@  Verno : (30 April 2016 - 10:15 PM)

Yeah, I threw a link in the Beast Wars Birthday thread. I'm keen to hear as many thoughts on it as possible. The last month has proven just how dear to the hearts of fans BW is.

@  Smokey : (30 April 2016 - 10:04 PM)

I looked at it a few days ago, actually, I saw you post it somewhere here on the forums.

@  Verno : (30 April 2016 - 09:43 PM)

No, they're certainly after their own ends. Cheers for taking a look at it, Smokey. I appreciate it.

@  Smokey : (30 April 2016 - 09:36 PM)

Well, at least you twisted things around so the Tripredacus council aren't minions of Unicron.

@  Verno : (30 April 2016 - 09:30 PM)

With Primus and Unicron, it was my aim for it to double as a celebration of the 30th anniversary of TF:TM.

@  Smokey : (30 April 2016 - 09:27 PM)

It's... Better than Dawn of the Predacus, at least. I could do without the whole Primus v. Unicron thing, that's been done to death.

@  Telly : (30 April 2016 - 09:25 PM)

i went off when i saw unicron

@  Patchouli Kn... : (30 April 2016 - 09:04 PM)

You shall not pass.

@  Touch My Thighs : (30 April 2016 - 09:01 PM)

Pass.

@  Verno : (30 April 2016 - 08:09 PM)

Read my Beast Wars 20th Anniversary comic book pitch to IDW -- TRANSFORMERS: DEICIDE

@  Telly : (30 April 2016 - 08:00 PM)

like paladin says, bbts and the like probly have them (or will get them soon) but are waiting for the hasbro release date before putting up pages

@  Paladin : (30 April 2016 - 05:10 PM)

something about street dates I think...

@  Pennpenn : (30 April 2016 - 10:25 AM)

Any particular reason it's not available in some of the ones I see more often like BBTS and TFSource and so on?

@  unluckiness : (30 April 2016 - 09:55 AM)

Might want to wash your hands after handling the toys if you order from the latter.

Artwork still looks great compared to Chaos. I wonder how it'll look in the print edition?

Optimus has a funny looking dramatic karate chop pose in one panel. His talk with Megatron doesn't seem quite right to me, compared to how things played out in Ongoing 22 and 23, but I guess that can be hand waved by Optimus' punishment.

Things get very overly dramatic, and the Autobots are shown in some pretty silly over the top action poses. Kinda fun, I guess. It's like the Autobot version of '300'.

Sky Lynx actually looks kinda cool. Well done, Livio.

The ending is... well, it's Metzen, that's for sure. I'm still muddied with the Primes, but that's my fault at this stage.

And am I the only one wondering if getting 'Ener-jacked in Slam' is the Cynertronian version of dropping the soap in the prison shower?

I kind of liked the twist at the end. We don't know if he's a Decepticon sympathizer or whether Zeta's really setting Orion up this time, and in my mind I could be happy with either possibility. The idea that some bots in this might not be on the side you traditionally expect them to is an interesting thought.

Can't get into it. The art is ok, but the story doesn't interest me. Personaly, when I first heard about Autocracy, I thought its going to be set long before M:O for some reason. Would like it better that way.

Right now I'm only interested if they're going to show how Optimus was forced into being Prime, and that it was Hot Rod who was really chosen by the Matrix.

I kind of liked the portrayal of Hot Rod in issue 5. It provides some decent backstory as to why he launched the Lost Light.

Megatron and the Decepticons were good in #7. #8 can't come quick enough.

It was a decentish issue, but man alive Orion's pep talk to Rodimus at the end was practically a Stan Bush song.

I loved how Megatron is being perfectly reasonable with Orion, and would have let them go after their talk, but no, Ironhide and Orion have to bust it and kill some Cons and make a dashing escape with BB...

Really, the whole thing could be playing in the SG universe so far. Or Bayformers. Because watching this Orion I fully expect him to say "Let's kill them all!" at some point.

I liked how Orion Pax became Optimus Prime. Same as how Megatron became Galvatron in the animated movie.

This series is a disappointment.

Both ongoings are fantastic serieses, with a new take on the tired Transformers formula.

This is an awful hash which ignores a lot of the interesting sounding hints from the regular Transformers comic.

For example:
- The matrix was supposed to "hurt" OP.
- OP was clearly hinted as being rebuilt by someone who had a vested interest in him being a future leader (not someone who was trying to extract the pity from his spark)

The untold story in the ongoing / etc was far more interesting than the actual story.

Also; The art getting boring. It shines in small doses, but as a complete on going? Not really. At times it is sublime like a Geoff Senior work, at other times it feels like Rob Ruffolo is filling in.
