Tusks doesn't exist in aligned though. Or maybe he does, but in this continuity he needs someone else to work the controls, or maybe by "piano player" the narration implies that Maccadam literally IS the piano. The universe may never know.

@  NotVeryKnightly : (31 May 2016 - 09:55 PM)

Where in Aligned?

@  Plokatron : (31 May 2016 - 09:53 PM)

@Locoman Hmm that can't be right. The piano plays it's self. Thats Tusks not Maccadam. But yeah in Aligned he is Alchemist Prime from what I've read. Still not the G1 universes though so I'm going with the Blue Bar Keep bot as him in Primax Clusters unless I'm pointed out wrong. Edit: Oh AVP said that not just the Aligned continuity. Well I'll just go with the blue bot like I said but say thats how he looks in Primax clusters. Unless proven wrong of course.

@  Locoman : (31 May 2016 - 09:42 PM)

But he's described as having a beard, and Retribution takes place in the aligned continuity where things are weird, and AVP has basically established that he's Alchemist Prime, so...

@  Locoman : (31 May 2016 - 09:42 PM)

no, he's the piano player.

@  Plokatron : (31 May 2016 - 09:40 PM)

@Locoman Was that him then? Cause the wiki only shows the bar keep in Maccadam's entry.

@  Locoman : (31 May 2016 - 09:30 PM)

Maccadam shows up in Retribution! He talks and everything.

@  Plokatron : (31 May 2016 - 09:18 PM)

Question anyone know if the bar keep http://tfwiki.net/me...ams_destiny.jpg here is Maccadam? Or is he just the face of the joint and we still haven't seen Maccadam?

@  PlutoniumBoss : (31 May 2016 - 08:01 PM)

And now my Dia Battles order has processed and will ship Any. Hugging. Minute.

@  Foffy the Sheep : (31 May 2016 - 05:01 PM)

I know, I just thought it was an amusing coincidence.

@  Bass X0 : (31 May 2016 - 04:58 PM)

its easy to get shouts during the same minute.

@  Rycochet : (31 May 2016 - 04:55 PM)

Rob Lobclaw?

@  Foffy the Sheep : (31 May 2016 - 04:49 PM)

Wow, I didn't even see Bass's shout when I was typing up mine. It was some freak accident that ours were at almost the exact same time, I guess.

@  Foffy the Sheep : (31 May 2016 - 04:46 PM)

The Seacons should just replace Nautilator with a Lobclaw drone. It'd save 'em a lot of heartache.

@  Bass X0 : (31 May 2016 - 04:46 PM)

We spend a lot of our youth wishing we were older, and a lot of our time as adults wishing we were kids again.

@  ShadowMan024 : (31 May 2016 - 04:38 PM)

You still have Nautilator. YOU ALL STILL HAVE NAUTILATOR!

@  TheMightyMol... : (31 May 2016 - 03:45 PM)

Release the Nautilator! No, really, release him, he sucks.

@  Foffy the Sheep : (31 May 2016 - 03:01 PM)

Feed them to the Gnawticas!

@  Bass X0 : (31 May 2016 - 02:01 PM)

Feed them to the sharkticons!

@  Foffy the Sheep : (31 May 2016 - 01:47 PM)

Or feed them to squirrels.

@  Foffy the Sheep : (31 May 2016 - 01:45 PM)

Put them in the collection box at the food bank instead.

Oprah's couch has withstood many years of OPRAH. It can withstand ANYTHING.

@  TheMightyMol... : (31 May 2016 - 05:32 AM)

Oprah's couch has been reinforced by many years of smug. It can withstand great pressure.

@  Pennpenn : (31 May 2016 - 05:17 AM)

That just asks more questions about Oprah's couch, then.

@  unluckiness : (31 May 2016 - 04:43 AM)

Can it? Oprah's couch seems fine.

@  TheMightyMol... : (31 May 2016 - 04:42 AM)

Cruise's ego can crush planets. That counts, right?

@  Foffy the Sheep : (30 May 2016 - 07:38 PM)

Xenu is just Tom Cruise in a wig, though.

@  wonko the sane? : (30 May 2016 - 07:00 PM)

I'm pretty sure cruze just offers the planets to xenu, he doesn't actaull eat them himself.

@  Foffy the Sheep : (30 May 2016 - 06:57 PM)

And they both eat planets.

@  wonko the sane? : (30 May 2016 - 06:56 PM)

well, it was one or the other. I might have been confused because they both have huge heads.

@  Foffy the Sheep : (30 May 2016 - 06:35 PM)

I've never heard that before. Are you sure you're not thinking of Tom Cruise?

@  wonko the sane? : (30 May 2016 - 06:32 PM)

I thought galactus was supposed to appear differently depending on which species is looking at him?

@  Foffy the Sheep : (30 May 2016 - 04:55 PM)

Galactus isn't goofy-looking. His hat is the grandest of all hats!

@  PlutoniumBoss : (30 May 2016 - 12:58 PM)

And we run into something like the Galactus Fashion Conundrum. Are YOU going to be the one to go up to his face and tell him he's goofy-looking?

@  Foffy the Sheep : (30 May 2016 - 12:32 PM)

Maybe Miles's villains think you're lame!

@  unluckiness : (30 May 2016 - 11:07 AM)

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.

@  unluckiness : (30 May 2016 - 03:43 AM)

A lot of mine have somehow gotten so floppy that floor polish doesn't help. May need superglue

@  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

@  Touch My Thighs : (29 May 2016 - 07:12 PM)

http://swanh.net/ This is really impressive.

@  wonko the sane? : (29 May 2016 - 06:20 PM)

I keep having to say this to folks: fandoms are voluntary. Enjoy in any ratio or methodology that you choose.

Hey guys,

I had a last minute change of plan for this week's article, so instead of the Lucky Draw segment of the "In Their Own Words" series, I've gone a little self-indulgent and started a 2-part Top 10 run down of the best finds I've made since returning to collecting 12 months ago, pitching it as a comparison with what all the contributors have provided over the last 4 weeks.

Clearly it doesn't compare, but hey, it gave me a theme!

Interesting but not drop-dead-amazing stuff, which you probably knew since it was the bottom half of your list...but I'm really intrigued about the Revell catalogs you mentioned re: the Countach models.

All sorts of reasons, my then-girlfriend/now-wife lived in Iceland so I spent a great deal of time and money travelling to see her on a regular basis in Iceland and sometimes the US, I was pretty burnt out after creating TF-1 and spending so much time chasing toys and posting on forums, it was also an incredibly unhappy and tumultuous period of time at my job which didn't leave me a great deal of energy or desire to pursue Transformers. I did still pick up the odd Animated and Movie toy, but vintage collecting was off the cards.

Well, I find the Sample Takara Diaclone Smokescreen to be drop-dead amazing, but those are my tastes and not everybody else's. What kind of thing would you class as drop-dead amazing? I'm not sure you'll think that much more of my top 5 either, but do keep in mind I've had to constantly sell things to buy what I have, so you won't see and gold chromed lucky draw or MISB Japanese exclusives icon-hotrod.gif I tend to buy really obscure and unloved/undocumented stuff regularly.

All your articles are really cool, and well written. Sometimes the depth level goes above my head, but generally I really like learning! Glad to see you're back and in a good enough place to begin again.

Yeah, the Takara Smokescreen sample was pretty cool. i imagine it's worth at least twice what you got it for.

bear in mind that all of this is from the perspective of someone with nothing rarer in his collection than, like, a Bat-Robo.

Historically, the Smokescreen is amazing. As something to look at on a website, it's pretty much a totally normal Diaclone Smokescreen with a generic "SAMPLE" sticker on it. So while it's an unquestionably important part of the brand, it's nothing I can pore over the image of and be mystified. That's reserved for things like Bizarre Green And Pink G2 Mirage, or Peruvian Minibot packaging, or those Super Speed-Bot cardback mockups that advertise a mail-away Solarbot. Much less rare? Mostly. But still something I'm much more likely to ooh and ahh over pictures of on the Internet.

Now, if the Smokescreen has or is slated for a thorough photoshoot, that might change things up a bit...

Also: solid chrome toys aren't really my thing either, FWIW.

Ohhhh how wrong you are icon-hotrod.gif The Smokescreen has had the "Datsun" "Turbo 280Z" "RR"etc factory Diaclone stickers surgically mutilated and then coloured over manually by pen or paint, also there are hand-written marks on the toy indicating where the Autobot symbols will go. For the complete run down see here:

And if you can't be arsed to read all that waffle, here's a pic or 2:
