But that would make me sad. I was excited about Polar Claw.

Polar Claw is awesome.

He'd be more awesome if the damn spring loaded shoulder legs on mine stayed together amymore. And if his more organic face didn't have that silly grin. Still I always loved his size/build in bot mode.

Wish he had a characterization in fiction worth caring about...


-ZacWilliam, not that I'm not thrilled for Ursa. I'd be having an embolism with excitement if something even marginally close to one of my Bestiary designs showed up in canon. Very cool. icon-hotrod.gif Congrats.

Ever wonder about the speed of Turbofoxes?
Or the proverbial ailerons of Titanium Moosebots?

For a mechazoologic tour of the mechanimals of Cybertron.

... hey. I think all of those universal screenshots/scans are from the wiki. I see the big group screenshot I took from Cosmic Rust...

http://tfwiki.net/wi...st-BigGroup.jpg

And there's Minerva and Perceptor from Victory on page 1, and LioConvoy and Primal from the BW2 movie.. a BlackZarak headshot, Armada Hot Shot, RID Prime (twice?), Robot Masters CGI Convoy... I'm not sure who the cowering Decepticon is on page 2/panel 2, though.


No one is used twice. *Stops to think about that* I'm fairly certain.

The close up of a Convoy on page 2 is a bit more obscure. It's not one of your everyday Convoys. And he's... well he's just great.

There's also no CGI. The G1 Prime is an exceptionally well rendered piece of art from a comic book.

...The plural of "phenomenon" is not "phenomenon", writer guys. It's "phenomena". ...Rhinox ought to know that...
Fall of Cybertron will blow your mind. That is all.

G1 Prime is used three times.

Twice in two images from "Another Time and Place," and a third time in that IDW shot.

They refer to him as Overlord, not Gigatron. I knew it.

I'm wondering if he might refer to himself as Gigatron.

I doubt it. It's probably a copyright thing like Turbomaster and Streetstar and the correct names appear in the comic.

Correct, but since the two AT&P Primes are on one screen, I was counting that as once.

And the AT&P Prime and the later G1 Prime are two different G1 Primes.

You're not. I was attempting to be subtle with it, and not be the guy flailing his arms around going "Look! Look! It's my guy Ursa Magnus!!!"

But apparently, it's required.


Wow, that's pretty awesome. icon-ironhide.gif

Background stuff aside, I have to say it's great to see the Club going back to the TransTech, at least partially. I don't think it's a secret that I love that stuff, so any opportunity to get back to Axiom Nexus is more than welcome as far as I'm concerned. icon-ironhide.gif

It's definitely a decent glue setting when you're doing multiversal stuff. Helps to have an in-fiction framework for saying stuff like this.

This pleases Vestras, YEeeeeessssss

Also, I'd still burn down shelter for some UPDATED Transtech toys. Especially that Megatron
Clearing out some old TFs and Mugenbine in my BST Thread. You know you want some of these.

I am shamed to admit that I still have no idea who the Decepticon on this screen is: http://tfwiki.net/wi...ogue-Rhinox.jpg

I feel like it should be obvious, and once it is pointed out, I will cry for days.
