Hooray, animal rescue! TMM & I have a red-eared slider. Not a resdue,

@  Noideaforaname : (23 May 2017 - 03:26 PM)

@MEDdMI - Me and my teacher both had box turtles. The teach did animal rescue work, so two of her turtles were actually deformed and couldn't be released (one's shell was too large and the other's too small), so they ended up being class pets.

@  LBD "Nyt... : (23 May 2017 - 02:12 PM)

They had regular flat, cereal bowl-type molding at the bottom, so it wasn't much an issue that I can recall.

@  OrionPax44 : (23 May 2017 - 02:10 PM)

How tough is it to clean out those bowls. I'd imagine the nooks and crannies from their spines are tough areas.

@  LBD "Nyt... : (23 May 2017 - 01:47 PM)

I had two of those bowls, Michelangelo and Donatello

@  MEDdMI : (23 May 2017 - 01:46 PM)

Nice. What kind of turtles?

@  Noideaforaname : (23 May 2017 - 01:10 PM)

I had that turtle bowl too. Never did the obvious 'pretend to be Shredder and dine on turtle soup'... but that's because I had a bunch of pet turtles plus I frequently pet-sat a teacher's trio.

@  TheMightyMol... : (23 May 2017 - 12:36 PM)

You ate out of a Ninja Turtle? Kinky.

@  NightViper : (23 May 2017 - 12:33 PM)

My bowl didn't just have a picture of a Ninja Turtle, it WAS a Ninja Turtle. And came with a box of Cookie Crisp that I didn't eat.

@  Foffy : (23 May 2017 - 12:31 PM)

@  MEDdMI : (22 May 2017 - 09:00 PM)

Xellos...? *looks at avatar pic* speaking of old anime... DRAGON SLAVE!!!

@  Xellos : (22 May 2017 - 08:56 PM)

Yeah, Tylor is awesome. One of the few series (Tylor and Escaflowne) I watched multiple times subtitled. On VHS even. Own two sets of each on DVD (or BD in 2nd Escaflowne's case). Original Tylor DVD and the remastered DVD, and both sets of dubs for Escaflowne (not counting the aborted Saturday morning edit, though I did tape that as it aired).

@  Steevy Maximus : (22 May 2017 - 08:28 PM)

Man, I'm so sad I missed so much of the mid-90s anime. The Irresponsible Captain Tylor is SO MUCH FUN!

@  Paladin : (22 May 2017 - 11:43 AM)

where's GALVATRON in MP form dammit?! he didn't even get in for the anniversary year...

@  TheMightyMol... : (22 May 2017 - 11:35 AM)

I'm still waiting on the rest of the Dinobots.

@  Robowang : (22 May 2017 - 11:24 AM)

The Decepticon MP cassettes are probably my favorite MP figures so far. Fantastic little dudes.

@  Bass X0 : (22 May 2017 - 11:23 AM)

I want a Masterpiece Blaster if only because I'm fond of the Masterpiece cassettes and want Takara to make more. They should also do Slugfest and Overkill since they were in the cartoon too, even if it was only very briefly.

@  Robowang : (22 May 2017 - 11:21 AM)

I just want the Chip figure. The only Autobot cars I have or want are G2 Sideswipe and Hot Rod.

@  Paladin : (22 May 2017 - 11:14 AM)

another Autobot car. "yaaaaaay."

I wonder if the guy in the big pod is the original Ultra Magnus... we never did find out what happened to him, did we?


"He learned, almost too late, that man is a feeling creature and, because of it, the greatest in the universe. He learned, too late for himself, that men have to make their own way, to make their own mistakes. There can't be any gift of perfection from outside ourselves. And, when men seek such perfection, they find there's only death, fire, loss, disillusionment, the end of everything that's gone forward. Men have always sought an end to toil and misery. It can't be given; it has to be achieved. There is hope, but it has to come from inside, from man himself."

I think it's more than likely Killmaster. The person in there is holding what looks just like Killmaster's wand, with the sparking tip, and the solicit mentions how whoever it is is going to try to kill Whirl.

 

Methinks Whirl may have been fibbing a bit when he told how he slew Killmaster.

My initial guess as I was reading the page was that it would be Killmaster, since he's huge and dangerous which would justify it being locked, and his "archenemy" Whirl is there, who I;ve always assumed was bullshitting about having killed him. And then I got to the last panel, and that sure as SHOOT looks like a hand holding a wand...

Since the names Nightbeat's rattling off include Turmoil, I'm gonna go ahead and say Starscream killed the rest of them as well.

 

Neat to see Adjudicus make it beyond "unused name for Tyrest", even if it is just as "some dude Starscream killed".


On rare occasions, I have something to say.

Ah, see, I was looking at the silhouette from the side and assuming that it was UM's head in profile.

Killmaster? Really?

 

Even for LL that feels kinda self indulgent.


"Disabled people donít have special needs. We have very reasonable human needs. Our needs include freedom from abuse, violence, and mistreatment, the right to autonomy and self-direction, the right to represent ourselves, equal opportunity for education and employment, the right to accommodation, and societal inclusion and acceptance.

The need for accommodation isnít a ďspecial needĒ. Itís a basic human right. Itís a leveling of the playing field that allows us the same opportunities and chances as non-disabled people."

Yep. And I liked that the list included some Decepticon-sounding names other than Turmoil, that seems to fit Starscream.

I wonder if we'll see what Killmaster's wand even does. Assuming it's an actual weapon and not something hokey like his lover's spark or whatever.

Also, "Questex." That's begging for a Quest joke.

Ooh, I just remembered something highly interesting that makes it even more likely it's Killmaster.

The geobomb was based off of Killmaster's "moongun" design. And what more than likely sent the protagonists to the Functionist Universe? The geobomb. They're probably going to need his help to get back to the regular universe.

Cyclonus explains that sparing Whirl's life allowed him to later save Tailgate, and before he can finish the sentence Whirl is already wearing Killmaster's head as a hat.

Indeed. We actually have a useful Transformer-esque design for him now.

 

It probably is Killmaster, but I was wondering if that might be Thunderwing, who's location is unknown.

My first thought when I looked at the page was that it's the 'original' Star Saber, specifically inserted to placate the kind of people who said they'd drop the comic but can't stop paying attention to it at any cost. Needless to say, I'm much happier that actual analysis indicates it's Killmaster.

I'm cautiously enjoying LL, but OP and Revolutionaries are incredible. I love everything about them!

Man, I've missed Milne. OP's looking great, but it'll look significantly less great if Cosmos doesn't make it out. (Also, I hope that Wreck-Gar sticks around in some form, because I love him.)

 

Revolutionaries is good, but feels like it's still a little too decompressed for the one-story-per-issue pace. I'm guessing that Ian's responding to Mercy, though?
