I don't mind Miles but his villains are kinda lame.

@  Bass X0 : (30 May 2016 - 09:29 AM)

I just thankful they didn't have a black Peter Parker.

@  tffan01 : (30 May 2016 - 09:09 AM)

I would have preferred Peter Parker. But If they really wanted to make a non-Peter Parker lead, they could have made Spider-Man 2099, at least it has a gimmick (futurism). While Miles, imo isn't that different from Peter Parker.

@  Locoman : (30 May 2016 - 08:52 AM)

That would be cool. Ultimate Universe kind of went off the rails toward the end, but I always liked Miles.

I heard new Spider-Man animated movie will feature Miles Morales.

@  Paladin : (29 May 2016 - 07:51 PM)

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

@  unluckiness : (29 May 2016 - 04:04 AM)

His big scene in the big Astrotrain battle for leadership was also great. Too bad Starscream suckerpunched him after he beat everybody else up

@  Pennpenn : (29 May 2016 - 01:00 AM)

Of course he has. I mean, remember when Trailbreaker had to pretend to be him in Masquerade?

@  zephyrX9 : (29 May 2016 - 12:47 AM)

@  Plokatron : (28 May 2016 - 11:18 PM)

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.

@  tffan01 : (28 May 2016 - 02:33 PM)

Or canadian stores, or australian stores, or german stores...

@  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.

right.

what really separates Artfire from, say, ROTF Fearswoop or one of the RID repainted guys?

A G1 Figure basically.

Lord knows everyone in this thread (me included) wouldn't be champing at the bit to pay $100+ for say a purple Inferno repaint but when it's one that resembles a G1 figure none of us had and we didn't even hear about until a decade after it was released...

I'm not sure why you think this train of thought is always illuminating on a Transformer board. People like their G1 stuff. I would have thought you'd accepted that after the first dozen or so debates you've had on this.

I'm just trying to help people see Chris's point from earlier in the thread. But. Whatever.

I'll stop now.

And he's almost like the e-Hobby characters (Road Rage, Crosscut, Clampdown, Detritus, etc) to me at least, as he's very Neo-G1 (though not neo-G1).

Yeah, him and Stepper both. I truely do not care that he is boring. He's a new guy for the classics shelf and that's all that matters to me. If he were Hauler that'd be cool too, but the same deal really. G1 guy who appeared in a tiny bit of fiction. Can only generate so much enthusiasm, but I'd still pick it up. Not right away, I'd hope it'll eventually go on sale at BBTS, like I am with Stepper.

Judging by his appearance in last year's comic, I'd say not at all.


Soon we'll only be one updated Chromedome away from being able to recreate that panel.

Which I'll never do, but I just want an updated Chromedome.

Artfire: As far as I know there wasn't a toy release planned for him (at least when I was drawing the comic), it's meant to be just a comic character (I just based the color scheme on his G1 counterpart)
His Targetmaster (the recolored Pinpointer, from PCC) is meant to be double handled (when firing).
