Both maybe?

Do you need a criminal lawyer or a criminal, lawyer.

@  Tm_Silverclaw : (20 July 2019 - 10:40 AM)

I don't suppose the allspark has any criminal lawyers from Georgia. ;P

@  NotVeryKnightly : (19 July 2019 - 01:17 PM)

It seems like, with these kind of things, anything not TF-specific is either in an existing thread or just not discussed since they're not part of something deemed important enough to get its own thread already.

@  Benbot : (19 July 2019 - 12:45 PM)

Yeah, but it's for Transformers specifically

@  Gryllid : (19 July 2019 - 12:39 PM)

There is. It's called "SDCC 2019 thread"

@  Benbot : (19 July 2019 - 12:24 PM)

no general SDCC thread?

@  Benbot : (19 July 2019 - 12:08 PM)

I never even bothered to see it.

@Sabrblade Depends on when you're here. I used to have the backups happen once daily, now I have them happen once per hour so you might often see a hesitation at the top of every hour for 30-45 seconds.

@  Kalidor : (16 July 2019 - 12:56 PM)

And lastly, if it becomes too much hassle to deal with - it might just get sent into the cornfield and replaced with a Discord box anyway. So cool it.

@  Kalidor : (16 July 2019 - 12:55 PM)

Second thing is we do actually have the ability to ban users specifically from using Shoutbox if it's being abused like that

@  Kalidor : (16 July 2019 - 12:55 PM)

Hey all - just a reminder and heads up. The Shoutbox has been kept here as a courtesy because it's what you folks like in lieu of Discord - but a few things to remember is that P&R should stay in P&R and isn't really something that needs to be dragged out here in the most public of spaces.

@  Nevermore : (16 July 2019 - 11:04 AM)

Done.

@  NotVeryKnightly : (16 July 2019 - 10:25 AM)

You can make a new one. I doubt anybody would stop you.

@  Nevermore : (16 July 2019 - 10:16 AM)

There was a thread but it appears to have disappeared. Might have been lost in one of the older forum sweeps.

@  NotVeryKnightly : (16 July 2019 - 09:58 AM)

Yeah this is pretty much circumventing the fact that we have different rules for political talk.

@  fourteenwings : (16 July 2019 - 09:55 AM)

Okay, so, basically, can we not do politics in here anymore? I mean, considering how often @Nevermore, you talk about your work conditions, don't you think it's time for a dedicated thread in P&R?

@  unluckiness : (16 July 2019 - 09:39 AM)

Scratch that; that's insulting to honest salads. Whatever that was was the text equivalent of hamburger.

@  unluckiness : (16 July 2019 - 09:38 AM)

@  Paladin : (16 July 2019 - 09:34 AM)

Pretty great IDW sale on comiXology. Could be a good opportunity for folks to fill in the gaps from the Humble Bundle.

Odd that the TF section of that sales page is missing like a lot of stuff (at least for me). Though the code still worked with things not on the sales page's list.

Yes! Does anyone who's more IDW Joe literate have recommendations for some key Joe stuff that's missing from the bundle? I tried browsing through a bunch of the stuff on ComiXology to figure out gaps but got confused very quickly about what was in the Humble Bundle collections and what wasn't. It looks like a bunch of the Joe books haven't been collected which makes it messier.

Any major Transformers stuff missing from the bundle?

Indeed.

 

Also wondering how much there is to get after the TMNT and Ghostbusters sales from earlier this year.

Bundle is missing nearly everything before Death of Optimus Prime (besides Infiltration and Devastation), plus Dark Cybertron and the Dark Prelude Spotlights. Comixology's discount code should work with any of IDW's Transformers material from before September 12th.

Okay, Joe first:

- G.I. Joe vol. 1: Issues #0-27, no trades on comiXology for some reason.
- G.I. Joe Special - Helix: Can't actually find this on comiXology?
- Origins: Issues #1-23, no trades again.
- Cobra II: Only need issues #5-9, the rest are in The Last Laugh from the bundle.
- Hearts and Minds: Link is to the trade.
- Infestation: Two issues.
- G.I. Joe vol. 2: You want issue #12 (since Cobra Command Vol. 3 is unavailable) and issue #21 (since it was never collected, best I can tell).
- Snake Eyes: You want issue #12 (same deal as Joe #12), the 'Snake Eyes & Storm Shadow Vol. 1' TPB (it got renamed, so this is actually #13-17) and issue #21 (also never collected).
- Target: Snake Eyes: This is #18-20 of both Joe vol. 2 and Snake Eyes.
- Cobra vol. 2: A weird one. You want issues #5-8 (the second TPB, which is missing), the 'Son of the Snake' TPB (actually the third TPB, but mislabelled as volume 2), the 'Oktober Guard' TPB, and the 2012 Annual down at the bottom.
- Infestation II: Two issues.
- G.I. Joe vol. 3: Nice and simple, TPB Vol. 1-3.
- Special Missions: TPB Vol. 1-3 again.
- G.I. Joe vol. 4 (The Fall of G.I. Joe): TPB Vol. 1-2.
- Snake Eyes, Agent of Cobra: Link is to the TPB.

This isn't done but I gotta run now, will come back and finish it later.

Hhuh. I bet that explains why vol 2 isn't in the bundle. Just an old-fashioned inventory-keeping cockup.

Have they made the Complete Allspark Almanac available digitally yet?  I see the two normal volumes, but I'd rather wait for the complete version.

 

Hmmm, do I need a digital copy of Sins of the Wreckers?  Yes I do.

Thanks, though I phrased that poorly: Anything major since MTMTE and RID began that's missing in the Humble Bundle? That's where I'm trying to catch up now.

The -acies (Autocracy, Monstrosity, Primacy), Dark Prelude (AKA the 2013 Spotlight issues), Dark Cybertron Vol. 1-2, Punishment, Sins of the Wreckers, Empire of Stone, Redemption, and the Vol. 10s of MTMTE and ex-RID are the missing trades from the bundle.

Of those, Dark Cybertron and the Vol. 10s are the most essential, but all of them except the -acies (which exist in their own little bubble mostly) do figure into the ongoing story in some way.

The only things that strictly fit that criteria are Dark Cybertron, Dark Prelude, the volume 10s and the Punishment one shot.

 

Of those the only one I'd say was actually essential is Dark Cybertron. But a good half of the Dark Prelude one off issues are legitimately great.

 

If you're looking for some earlier stuff, I mean a lot of it is relevant to RID, but the best stuff is the Roberts stuff to my mind, so issues 22 and 23 of the ongoing, and Last Stand of the Wreckers. They're directly referenced in MTMTE.

I think I have everything early except Spotlight: Kup, and on up to the big thing with that giant Decepticon thing. It was after it split into two books that I've been off and on, and I got a bunch of that stuff in the last Humble Bundle. So I guess I should have mentioned that as well.

 

Man, this is tough to keep up with unless you're right there as it happens. XP

 

Anyway, Comixology should have everything else I need then, right?

 

Edit: Got a headache just trying to look through Comixology's listing and parsing what's what. That they threw that Transfusion thing in there, too -- that's not part of their TF stuff, is it? It wasn't really labeled as such, despite placement.

 

Grabbed Sins of the Wreckers, and I think between the last two Humble sales, I have all of RiD and MTMTE, including Dark Cybertron. I got Combiner Wars via a previous Comixology sale, and Windblade is thrown in here, too. And I think I have all the Dark Prelude stuff... somehow. Somewhere. I think.

 

So I just need the Volume 10s (are those part of the Comixology sale? I don't know when they came out) and Punishment, and I ought to be good?

 

Edit #2: I'm not seeing any of those in Comixology's sale page.

 

I do see Transformers and MTMTE #56, though. Do I grab those, or am I already covered? Or are those part of Volume 10, which isn't in the sale?

 

And Til All Are One #3 and All Hail Optimus #55? Wha? What is this I don't even I'm so confused on what I need I thought All Hail Optimus was its own thing agafssdfffalahgl hfdafuiahfpahefhafasbn __/\__/\__/\/\/\/\/\_____________________________

I'd been sitting here thinking "people who just want to catch up on TF are so lucky, it's a hundred times easier than figuring out the Joe books", but maybe I only felt that way because I've been reading IDW's TF since before Furman left so I don't have to worry about it. 

 

GOOD LUCK
