As an UK expat, I have to say I miss the actual thrill of hunting in stores as frustrating as it was when distribution was bad. I feel spoiled for choice in America in comparison lol.

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.

@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

United running alongside Generations? I remain skeptical.

Still, if it means Japanese fans can finally get a Black Shadow...for more than it would cost to get a fellow fan to buy one at Marshall's and ship it there, but still.
Being part of any fandom is fundamentally embarassing.

I imagine in this case United = Takara's Generations.

Note that there are separate listings for Arms Micron Shockwave and "United Shockwave".

If true I'm excited that someone is finally doing these.

This also makes me think that the wave after the Wreckers from Hasbro may include them since Takara's Generations has been mirroring Hasbro's minus the handling of Shockwave (though that may change if United Shockwave is any indication).

Also looks like Thundertron is getting a release in Arms Micron as well as the Deluxe Optimus again.

I do wonder if Reflector & Hardhead might be TransformersAsia.com only releases like the Seeker set or no?

United Swindle at a voyager price point is pretty random. Also, wonder what "Preview Optimus Prime Re-Do" at the deluxe price point is?

Fingers crossed for this. I'm not eager to own Warpath as Hardhead - I'm satisfied with the Wal-Mart exclusive repaint of Onslaught from years ago - but Perceptor as Reflector? I'm all over that.

He's listed at the same price as the other Deluxes, isn't he? He, Starscream, Reflector, and Hardhead are 109, while the Voyager stuff like Cylas Breakdown are 149.

Yup. And United Deluxes aren't to be confused with Arms Micron Deluxes:

United Deluxes 109
Arms Micron Deluxes 74

Of course that makes the 109-priced "Gremrock" very interesting.

Okay, I just realized this could be Universe Dinobot as BW Grimlock, and I may have just soiled my pants.

Buying three Reflectors at $10-15 wasn't bad, but buying three at ~$40 is going to hurt. But it must be done.

Don't count on it guys.

I'm not a fan of voting on peoples posts. it just seems very passive aggressive to click 'down vote' and not add anything to the thread. and up votes are exactly the same. to my mind the whole point of a forum is discussion and being able to just easily agree or disagree takes the discussion out of the equation.
