Does anybody remember the cartoon Bots Master? I enjoyed the show but looking back on it, most of the robot designs were lame.

QUOTE(Zaku Prime @ Jun 7 2013, 01:18 AM) <{POST_SNAPBACK}>
Also, with this preview I think they revealed all the character art they had at Botcon 2010 except for Megatronus. It?s good to know that all that art wasn?t wasted. I wonder if everyone?s going to get a portrait or not. Amalgamous almost works better without one.
The only BotCon art we see here is for Vector Prime and Liege Maximo. Though Prima has been previously seen in the Vault book, this preview lacks the art for Alpha Trion, Nexus Prime, Solus Prime Megatronus, and The Fallen (separate art piece from that of the pre-Fallen Megatronus).

QUOTE(Zaku Prime @ Jun 7 2013, 01:18 AM) <{POST_SNAPBACK}>
Finally, I have to wonder what?s in the rest of this book. I mean in about 9 pages they summed up their creation story and started their fight against Unicron. I can easily see the rest of the story pages topping out at around 60 pages or so, and that's being generous. Unless they do an epilogue for each individual character, I?m not sure what else they have to fill up a 176 page book. Assuming, of course, it is all Thirteen-related stuff and they don?t add in stuff from Prime/Beast Hunters and the games.
Probably more history beyond the era of the Thirteen since the description talks about the book covering things like the Golden Age and the Great War.

I am so uninterested in these Aligned things...

The artwork is so Prime-style, and the names... Primus the names. They sound like they are from a bad fanfic.

Megatronus was stupid to begin with - was there a Starscreamus Prime, too? - but Alchemist Prime? Amalgamous Prime? A guy simply called Thirteen?
Gah.
I can make up more like these... Humoungous Prime! Bulbous Prime! Chemist Prime! Biologist Prime! ..... icon-primal.gif


And unfortunately, given stuff like Monstrosity and even RID, it seems Hasbro wants to slowly force the Aligned universe onto the "G1" IDW continuity as well.

PS: preeeety sure the Leige Maximo was hardly called .... Leige Maximo when he was created, y'know. One isn't a LIege unless he has whole armies of vassals to command. And geez, why don't they give him cloven feet as well?

If Optimus is Thirteen, is would explain why Alpha Trion seemed to favour him in the 2 novels and let him read the Covenant where it seemed (to me at least) that everyone else who worked at the archives were basically treated as drones.

I am going to have to drop hint to this book as an Xmas as soon as the pre-order goes up, but even if I don't get it I'm content to wait till a cheaper paperback version is released. Who knows, maybe this version with the fancy case is just the Amazon exclusive and just the hardcover book itself will widely available for much less.

At the very least, they could have called him Paracelsus Prime --there's a whole host of actual words that end in -us that would work great for Prime names.

From the same guy, we have Bombastus Prime (which tells you everything you need to know about his personality).

Vulgus Prime ("Vulgus" being the Latin root of "vulgar," meaning common, crude, or low-class --perfect for a "renegade" Prime).
Atavus Prime (meaning "ancestor" or "throwback," depending on context)
Invictus Prime (the Unconquerable One)
Faustus Prime (who made a deal with Unicron)
Malleus Prime (the Hammer)
Occultus Prime (the Hidden One)

Caelus Prime (the Ruler of the Sky)

$99? Ouch as cool as it'd be it have a wall mounted Autobot symbol, I'm sure it's bumping up the price a lot so I hope there's a book only version released.

Of course it's Amazon so it should also be 20-30% off right from preorder.

Love the look of Vector Prime and Unicron, keeping the look of their past Cybertron and G1 (respectively) forms but in the Prime style. Also love the look of Leige Maximo, very Loki-ish.

Poor Megatronus, shunned from creation on.

I know, but they could still work the quotes in as a nice nod to those other stories, but have the meanings of them refer to something else to fit more in with the Aligned continuity. icon-arcee.gif

Or, since this is the Aligned Continuity after all, they could use those lines as a means to "align" the specific elements they refer to into the Aligned Continuity as Aligned versions of those other non-Aligned continuity events. icon-fire.gif

IIRC, there were two entirely different Liege Maximo designs shown at conventions. One had this giant war-wheel lookin' thing mounted on its back, and the second one was the Loki-type, which I remember specifically going "oh, huh, that one actually looks like Liege Maximo" to.

Cybersnark - awesome names. See, you alone came up with better ones than we have gotten.

And is Onyx Prime some obscure Botcon character reference? I vaguely remeber that fic had some Optimus Primal repaint by that name, but I do not follow Botcon continuity much.

Huh, weren't people who had seen some of the 13 designs at Botcon saying Liege Maximo was some hulking creature covered in spikes, and not the Loki lookalike?


IIRC, there were two entirely different Liege Maximo designs shown at conventions. One had this giant war-wheel lookin' thing mounted on its back, and the second one was the Loki-type, which I remember specifically going "oh, huh, that one actually looks like Liege Maximo" to.


If you think Loki looks like the Leige Maximo, you need to look at that page at the end of G2 again.

Unless Loki is sporting tentacles and cables these days, of course. icon-fire.gif

Hmmm... The bio says the Author was born in 1968 and "grew up watching G1 Transformers."

No, I don't think that works.


-ZacWilliam, unless it's a typo and means 1978.
