I've had to do fix fics for my own fix fics.

@  TheMightyMol... : (17 May 2021 - 02:19 PM)

"Fix fics" are their own entire category of fanfiction.

@  PlutoniumBoss : (17 May 2021 - 01:32 PM)

Is fanfic "fixing" an author's story? (Often it is, I think.)

@  Tm_Silverclaw : (17 May 2021 - 12:15 PM)

I don't think people repainting and such are nessicarly "Fixing" a toy, just modding it to their likes. The problem is when they go around claiming to have "Fixed' it, that I feel it becomes a problem.

@  CORVUS : (17 May 2021 - 08:41 AM)

"I was gonna buy some Toyhax labels for Earthrise Auto-Whatsit, but since I'd be disrespecting the artistic expression of the designers, I think I'll just forget the whole thing."

@  TheMightyMol... : (17 May 2021 - 06:41 AM)

Like, in general, not going into specific bands or covers. Because I could point out plenty of repainted toys I didn't like as much as the original, too.

@  TheMightyMol... : (17 May 2021 - 06:39 AM)

Is a musician covering a song "fixing" it?

@  Nevermore : (17 May 2021 - 05:15 AM)

So, then, isn't redecoing or retooling an existing toy also "fixing" someone else's art?

@  PlutoniumBoss : (16 May 2021 - 10:07 PM)

A toy is not on the same level as a piece of drawn art, true, but it is 100% an entertainment product.

@  Nevermore : (16 May 2021 - 05:05 PM)

A toy is an object of utility, Comparing that to a piece of drawn art is grossly ignoring the difference between the two. Also, you didn't answer my questions. Try again.

@  PlutoniumBoss : (16 May 2021 - 04:25 PM)

Part of the difference is that those covers are primarily one person's art. Sure, you probably have an inker and a colorist, but the lines and composition are one person. A toy however is a team design at pretty much all levels.

@  Cyoti : (16 May 2021 - 03:52 PM)

toymaking is a collaborative process, you have to make compromises and factories are going to get things wrong

@  tigerhawk : (16 May 2021 - 03:43 PM)

Earthrise had a few holes, Runamuck's legs YIKES!

@  NotVeryKnightly : (16 May 2021 - 03:37 PM)

I doubt that say, the designer for Kingdom Cheetor was happy about every bit of unpainted plastic on it.

@  Bass X0 : (16 May 2021 - 03:28 PM)

J Scott Campbell recently had his Spiderman cover "fixed" by someone online. A few weeks ago, someone on twitter "fixed" someone's Sonic the Hedgehog fan art where Sonic, Tails and Knuckles were drawn as humans. Both times and other times, the "fixer" gets called out and criticised as you shouldn't go around "fixing" someone else's art because its rude and disrespectful to the original artist. And I was thinking isn't "fixed your s*** for ya" exactly what toy customisers do?

@  Nevermore : (16 May 2021 - 02:28 PM)

Have you ever changed your car in any way whatsoever compared to the factory configuration, or are you leaving the designer's art unchanged in that case as well?

@  CORVUS : (16 May 2021 - 02:28 PM)

It's best not to ponder it too hard.

@  Nevermore : (16 May 2021 - 04:16 AM)

Bass X0, I really wonder sometimes how you come up with these random tangents apropos of nothing.

@  PlutoniumBoss : (16 May 2021 - 04:11 AM)

It's collaborative art.

@  NotVeryKnightly : (16 May 2021 - 04:07 AM)

Toys are subject to budget constraints, so its not like customizing would ruin the designer's vision or whatever.

@  Bass X0 : (16 May 2021 - 03:38 AM)

Isn't customising a toy just "fixing other people's art"?

Yeah, my hybrid does that when idling or at low speeds. Otherwise it's almost completely silent.

That might actually be a fake noise they make electric cars make so pedestrians can hear them. Some cars even let you pick out what noise they make.

Actually heard a car with that electric, scifi-hum to it. Made me realize that we kinda are living in the future...

Page 4 is one of my favorites of this story just because I was able to put in that Claw Jaw and Nega-Gnome joke.

All of Blade's past summons appear in this comic except 2. Shortround is actually there, but got cropped out. He's on the top level of the castle. Seaspray isn't present for reasons.

Why yes, the first thing I did with Weaponizers was attempt a battle wheelchair. Because I had no ideas for a name and it was a hodgepodge to begin with, I just made up a file name that reflects some of my nonsensical file names.

Next week the fun begins with a 2 page spread.

Two page spread this week, so just the one image. Wanted to do a big battle page just to see what I could do. Probably worked on this one page more than any other in this story.

Two of my favorite pages. I actually decided to do this battle because I wanted to do page 11. I've been dying to make page 12 forever because underside down submarine equals gun will never not be funny to me.

Back in the old TAOWAR comics Empp would cast spells in Latin through a Predacon font. Now it's English instead of Latin, but I believe it's the same font (the Pred font on the TFWiki). Hoping the visuals are 3nough to guess what the spells are.

So this is when I decided Blade can still use Flash Step while in his chair. Just because I wanted to cut off Hellscream's tail off. Plop Father is out of the picture now. Probably should've done that sooner.

So the new Seacons were revealed soon after I had committed to this scene. I couldn't wait for their release, so I went to the trouble of using the G1 toy.

First and foremost, yes I did just set up another tournament arc. No, it is not planned to be the next arc.

Secondly, this wraps up really fast for a reason. I had a longer ending planned, but then it became it's own little story. I'll be posting that in November either all at once or in two halves.

Lastly, for King Poseidon I decided to make him a one mind, multiple bodies character just for fun.

Next week is on Halloween, so a little something relating to Halloween is in order.

Happy Halloween all! I know it's more of a Xmas joke, but it was the best I had this year.
 
November 2019 Schedule (tentative):
11/7/19: ATTF #57 Pressing Question
11/14/19: ATTF #58 Tír na nÓg Epilogue 1-4
11/21/19: ATTF #58 Tír na nÓg Epilogue 5-9
11/28/19: ATTF #59 Ultra Gear
 
This might change. I might decide to post all of the epilogue at once and use the other week for a couple of bios.

This was joke I had come up with while making the Tír na nÓg story, but there wasn't a good place for it.

Anyways, got an update to the schedule.

Updated November 2019 Schedule:
11/7/19: ATTF #57 Pressing Question
11/14/19: ATTF #58 Tír na nÓg Epilogue 1-9
11/21/19: ATTF #59 Ultra Gear
11/28/19: ATTF #60 Diagnosis Aid

Next week is the epilogue. I think the epilogue turned out better than the storyline itself, so I'm looking forward to sharing that. Also if I have time I'll talk about the Tír na nÓg story as a whole.

And the Tír na nÓg story arc comes to a close. First and foremost, I love this Epilogue and wish I had thought of it sooner so that I could've written the rest of the story around it. In hindsight I see a much better story where the beginning speeds up to Ceus getting hurt, then the middle is the Epilogue, and then the final part is the big battle where summoning Ceus is the big summon. It ended up being to late to accommodate that and even if I changed direction midway through I wouldn't have had time to make said changes due to life. 

That said, I had fun and that's the most important thing. The things I enjoyed making the most were  the whole Epilogue including exploring the characters and the Element system, the big battle scene including the 2 page spread and the little one off jokes, and pretty much any scene with Unilla in it.

Anyways, I may be taking a break soon. After November I am out of comics to post. May make something between now and December, but no promises. I'd like to finish out the year if I can.

Next week is back to random Transformers jokes.

No new comic this week, but I did remember I have some new profile pages to share, Claw Jaw and Terragator. Hope you get some enjoyment from them.

I may try to update the pictures in Terragator's when I can. I got repair parts at TFCon and haven't been able to take new pictures. Anyways, I am on hiatus until I have new stuff to share. That might be next week, that might be months from now, I don't know. I do have a few one offs written, so I'm hoping to be back sooner rather than later.
