Sh Shrapnel Pig can have an army of clones of himself and chew through reinforced metal doors? I am officially afraid now.

@  Autobot Bubbs : (09 December 2016 - 03:46 AM)

Who said his name?

@  The Doctor Who : (08 December 2016 - 10:58 PM)

Shrapnel pig, Shrapnel Pig does whatever a Shrapnel can!

@  BlackMax : (08 December 2016 - 06:03 PM)

"Enjoy your shrapnel pig" is now a phrase I will work at random into conversation.

@  Rycochet : (08 December 2016 - 06:01 PM)

Enjoy your shrapnel pig, kids!

@  Rycochet : (08 December 2016 - 06:01 PM)

How about BWN Randy? GPS paired with a springloaded gimmick.

@  TheMightyMol... : (08 December 2016 - 05:10 PM)

Find a box of G1 Slog. GPS and rubber shell rot.

The height of Transformer-toy-donation-based cruelty.

@  Bass X0 : (08 December 2016 - 05:06 PM)

Ha! That G2 Slingshot will crumble in their hands! That's pretty hateful.

@  Patchouli Kn... : (08 December 2016 - 05:03 PM)

Donate one of the older figures made entirely of gold plastic. :wtf

@  ShadowMan024 : (08 December 2016 - 04:49 PM)

Okay, that's going way too far.

@  Locoman : (08 December 2016 - 04:38 PM)

Armada Sideswipes for all the boys and girls!

@  TheMightyMol... : (08 December 2016 - 04:36 PM)

Okay now you're just taking this too far.

@  ShadowMan024 : (08 December 2016 - 04:32 PM)

And if you wanna go to hell, you'll donate a Tuner Mudflap.

@  Bass X0 : (08 December 2016 - 04:08 PM)

and if you're really feeling abusive, you will give the gift of Generations Cheetor. probably still some shelf-warming a store somewhere

@  TheMightyMol... : (08 December 2016 - 01:51 PM)

In that case, ALL the Rattraps.

@  Rycochet : (08 December 2016 - 10:47 AM)

Toys for tots you hate.

@  unluckiness : (08 December 2016 - 09:12 AM)

Poor tots, having to transform that.

@  Steevy Maximus : (08 December 2016 - 12:04 AM)

If Rattrap is still there, I'll just buy it for Toys for Tots. Two plus years is too long to see a figure shelfwarm

@  The Doctor Who : (07 December 2016 - 09:24 PM)

About this much:

@  Telly : (07 December 2016 - 09:06 PM)

@  D.M : (07 December 2016 - 08:59 PM)

He's gonna need more rope.

What was he talking about? That old cartoon about Candlej

@  Dracula : (07 December 2016 - 03:01 PM)

ShadowMan024's body was never found

@  ShadowMan024 : (07 December 2016 - 01:59 PM)

Apparently saying "Omnios" has the same effect as saying "Cand

@  Bass X0 : (07 December 2016 - 01:58 PM)

Don't say that name three times or He will return.

@  ShadowMan024 : (07 December 2016 - 01:50 PM)

She also voiced the main villain in that show Omnios liked on Nicke

@  MEDdMI : (07 December 2016 - 09:26 AM)

Emperor's New School series was fun, too. Eartha Kitt still voiced Yzma

@  BlackMax : (07 December 2016 - 09:03 AM)

That was a brilliant bit.

@  Paladin : (07 December 2016 - 08:29 AM)

Three oinkers wearing pants, plate of hot air, basket of Grandma's breakfast and change the bull to a gill- got it.

Dammit I was too late!

@  ShadowMan024 : (07 December 2016 - 12:35 AM)

BOOOOOOO YAAAAAAA-HA-HAAAAAAAAH!

@  ShadowMan024 : (07 December 2016 - 12:35 AM)

Bring it on.

@  SHIELD Agent 47 : (07 December 2016 - 12:34 AM)

Most likely.

@  ShadowMan024 : (07 December 2016 - 12:20 AM)

Sharp rocks at the bottom?

@  BlackMax : (06 December 2016 - 11:28 PM)

No no I did see it. The "yep" follows the waterfall.

@  Tm_Silverclaw : (06 December 2016 - 11:19 PM)

BlackMax.. You've never seen Emperor's New Groove? Stop whatever your doing and go watch it.. And while not nearly as good.. Watch Krunk's new groove as well!

@  BlackMax : (06 December 2016 - 11:00 PM)

Yep.

@  ShadowMan024 : (06 December 2016 - 09:44 PM)

Don't tell me. We're about to go over a huge waterfall.

@  Locoman : (06 December 2016 - 09:39 PM)

Well, you got me. By all accounts, it doesn't make sense.

@  ShadowMan024 : (06 December 2016 - 09:39 PM)

Why does she even HAVE that lever?

@  ShadowMan024 : (06 December 2016 - 09:38 PM)

WRONG LEVAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAH

@  MEDdMI : (06 December 2016 - 09:37 PM)

Pull the lever, Krunk!

@  ShadowMan024 : (06 December 2016 - 09:33 PM)

The Emperor's New Groove.

@  BlackMax : (06 December 2016 - 09:33 PM)

I didn't understand that reference.

@  BlackMax : (06 December 2016 - 09:32 PM)

I...

@  ShadowMan024 : (06 December 2016 - 09:32 PM)

I love that movie.

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.
