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

Ride the wave, dude. Put the toys away for a while...take 'em back out again later and you mind find your interest rekindled

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

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

I did. Just now. Cyberverse Vehicon.

I just wanted some TF coolness of my own. He's a poor substitute for Spinister, the MST, and cool Diarama Displays, but it's something.


-ZacWilliam, now if I could find Voyager Bulkhead (yeah right) or Deluxe Vehicon, THAT might make me feel completely better, icon-hotrod.gif

Yeah, rapido is easily one of the best of the 2010 set. Glad to have him.

But this weekend, I would love to find any of the newer prime stuff, especially deluxe wave 3. I'll even be in a town with a target, TRU, and 2 walmarts tomorrow, but I'm sure I won't find anything new.

Would love to find new toys, but all I want is a Vehicon and I don't anticipate finding him soon. (Decided to wait on the others in that wave.) Still, fingers crossed.

Yeah, I'm very pleased with Rapido. He embodies g2 for me. The problem is now I'm looking at getting myself a Brakedown to battle him. Which is...yikes. Hence the ko desire creeping into my otherwise non-ko thoughts. The color scheme is just too exciting, on any figure.

Rapido is pretty great. I've never loved the Classics Prowl mold, but that head sculpt is just fantastic, and the colors are lovely. I'd really recommend finding one, even if you feel like I do about the mold.

I also really dig last year's SG Galvatron--I don't care about the fiction, so I just like the idea that a Decepticon leader is disguised as a nice friendly rescue chopper. Very movie-Barricadey.

Those two and the keychain Mini-Bots are the only BotCon exclusives on my shelves (I have others from 2011 that I finally got around to listing for sale), but I should have a 2012 bagged set once the non-attendings ship. So I'm gonna try to be patient until then, and not go digging on eBay for ones I've missed. icon-hotrod.gif

But I might have to make an exception for Spinister. Because I want Spinister.

If I could find one that was decoed and molded in the colors of a favorite character from my childhood I might. (But probably not cause my wife would kill me.)


-ZacWilliam, part of the reason I bought the Vehicon was to pretend he was G1 Blackjack.
