Well... it's been a long while since we've done this! But it's that time again! See, in Australia we have these awful children's magazines -- printed in a A5 format -- which are basically glorified catalogues for whatever pop culture product ephemera large corporations are shilling. And I use "glorified" in the loosest possible sense.
Hey... I know a piece of pop culture ephemera shilled by a large corporation! Transformers!
It just so happens I pick up these magazines whenever I see Transformers on the cover -- which usually only happens around the time of the movies. And, say... there's a new movie!
So the mag I get the most -- the one that seems to most regularly have TF content -- is Mania. Here are some scans from issue #165. Mild Transformers 4 spoiler warning -- there MAY be character reveals in this stuff -- but... no... not really. (They think Swoop's in the movie, guys.)
Believe it or not, Mania's covers are restrained compared to some of these Magazines. I'll scan K-Zone later and you'll see what I mean.
This little page doesn't really feature anything to do with Transformers... but... I dunno. It was tangentially related? Robots, right?
Ahhh, now we're at the meat of it. The article above is exactly the kinda crap you expect from Mania. I mean... just... wow. So wonderfully written. But that's nothing compared to the next article:
Yeah... I'm not sure that the writers at Mania know what Anime actually is.
I included the final page entirely because... well... it tells you there's going to be more, guys. So much more.
