I just realised that Unsolved Mysteries has the same initials as Ultra Magnus.

@  Patchouli Kn... : (22 June 2018 - 05:18 AM)

Yeah, really... what a shitshow.

@  Pennpenn : (22 June 2018 - 04:53 AM)

This week has been an almost unmitigated damn nightmare. It can go die in some metaphorical trash fire where it belongs.

@  Nevermore : (22 June 2018 - 04:48 AM)

I feel your pain.

@  Whirl Maximus : (22 June 2018 - 04:47 AM)

This time ten years ago I was looking forward to Transformers 2.

@  Nevermore : (22 June 2018 - 01:41 AM)

There's room enough for five more cabinets.

@  Nevermore : (22 June 2018 - 01:41 AM)

Once I've settled in and earned money again, I can start with the third wall.

@  Plokatron : (21 June 2018 - 10:05 PM)

I'm still working on my comic just been trying to start up a Custom Lego shop. Won't be too long but I'm still here.

@  Dracula : (21 June 2018 - 10:02 PM)

(really though, great display)

@  Dracula : (21 June 2018 - 10:02 PM)

you're gonna have a buildup of dinosaur electrons.

@  Dracula : (21 June 2018 - 10:01 PM)

he needs his dino-breathing room! :D

@  Dracula : (21 June 2018 - 10:01 PM)

Trypticon looks a bit cramped in there, nevermore!

@  Tm_Silverclaw : (21 June 2018 - 05:54 PM)

Sad thing is we've thought more about the foam than the show writers ever did. :D

Current status of my collection room in my new, still-under-construction apartment:

@  wonko the sane? : (21 June 2018 - 05:31 PM)

Depends on whether or not the motive engines for the vehicle mode are the same as the robot mode. Cause we know they use energon for everything.

@  Bass X0 : (21 June 2018 - 05:17 PM)

I was thinking today if Transformers would carry the fuel for their alternate mode in their robot mode? They'd have to, right?

@  TheMightyMol... : (21 June 2018 - 01:28 PM)

I mean, the clear meta reason is so non-Transformers don't die horribly on their ships, but that's not as fun to speculate about.

@  wonko the sane? : (21 June 2018 - 10:43 AM)

There's also lots of chemical reactions which only precipite with oxygen.

@  Tm_Silverclaw : (21 June 2018 - 09:27 AM)

Oxygen is obviously a native gas on cybertron and also let’s the equipment “breath” so to speak.

@  Cybersnark : (21 June 2018 - 08:47 AM)

@Wonko; Yeah, but why oxygen? There are a lot of non-flammable gasses they could've used. And we've seen TFs using radio to communicate in vacuum.

@  Robowang : (21 June 2018 - 08:29 AM)

As the Cream of Wheat glugged forth from his meatus, his mind focused on only one thing: Mommy loved him so.

@  wonko the sane? : (21 June 2018 - 08:17 AM)

there's lots you can't do in vaccuum. The least of which is audio communication.

@  Cybersnark : (21 June 2018 - 08:04 AM)

Though that begs the question of why a robotic species would keep their ships pressurized with oxygen in the first place.

@  Pennpenn : (21 June 2018 - 07:29 AM)

Guess it's just me playing FTL recently. Opening a few doors out to the void is a good way to deal with fires and rude visitors.

@  Tm_Silverclaw : (21 June 2018 - 07:14 AM)

Plus it depends on what part of the ship, can’t easily vent an interior area.

@  wonko the sane? : (21 June 2018 - 06:34 AM)

depends on what's wrong. If you need to get something out and away, would also need to have started in a pressurised space to begin with. If you just want to vent extra heat: it wouldn't work as well as vaccuum is an insulator.

@  Pennpenn : (21 June 2018 - 03:12 AM)

If they're in space wouldn't it make more sense just to vent the area affected to vacuum?

@  Tm_Silverclaw : (20 June 2018 - 07:16 PM)

I mean the foam was dangerous, but in space they probably put out the fires, then wore the equivalent of a hazmat suit to clean up.

@  TheMightyMol... : (20 June 2018 - 04:38 PM)

Only on special occassions.

@  Paladin : (20 June 2018 - 03:50 PM)

you don't?

@  TheMightyMol... : (20 June 2018 - 02:17 PM)

I mean, we don't usually use asbestos on our souls.....

@  Tm_Silverclaw : (20 June 2018 - 10:11 AM)

*looks at asbestos" Yep... Cause we've never used something harmful as a fire retardant. x.x;

@  unluckiness : (20 June 2018 - 06:32 AM)

fire retardant foam is so powerful it can extinguish even sparks

@  Pennpenn : (20 June 2018 - 05:23 AM)

I mean, this is a species that can be disabled (possibly fatally after a while?) by flame retardant foam, so yeah.

@  TheMightyMol... : (20 June 2018 - 01:28 AM)

Transformers are exactly as resilient as the plot needs them to be, so who knows, it could be lethal today.

@  RichardT1977 : (19 June 2018 - 08:50 PM)

Which is why Marvel Megatron was interested in Dr. Biggles-Jones' railgun design and had it grafted onto his G2 tank mode.

@  wonko the sane? : (19 June 2018 - 08:43 PM)

Doesn't really matter what transformers are made of. If you send a 10 pound ball of metal flying at a good enough velocity, you will do damage.

@  Soft Snow : (19 June 2018 - 05:53 PM)

A regular cannon that shoots cannon balls and does nothing to other transformers because they are robots but would put a mean whole in the side of your wooden boat...

@  Shiny Chariot : (19 June 2018 - 05:44 PM)

POTP CINDERSAUR IS A GIRL THIS IS NOT A DRILL

@  Patchouli Kn... : (19 June 2018 - 05:18 PM)

A fusion cannon, or just a regular cannon?

@  Shiny Chariot : (19 June 2018 - 05:04 PM)

megatron but he turns into a ford fusion with a cannon badly welded onto the roof

@  TheMightyMol... : (19 June 2018 - 02:22 PM)

My Little Fusion Cannon: Friendship Through Tyranny.

@  NotVeryKnightly : (19 June 2018 - 02:01 PM)

was that supposed to sound sexual

@  wonko the sane? : (19 June 2018 - 01:55 PM)

I'm pretty sure that megatrons cannon is his best friend, so that friendship is magic stuff won't work.

@  MEDdMI : (19 June 2018 - 01:16 PM)

And then the magic ponies force everyone to be friends FOREVERRRRRRR

@  wonko the sane? : (19 June 2018 - 12:06 PM)

Or... megatron just goes to war against skynet cause he can't stand the competition.

We've just revealed an incredibly cool new project in the Chronicles of Cybertron fanfic forum: the Hasbro Heroes Sourcebook Extended, an unofficial fan project creating profiles for Hasbro Universe characters who didn't get featured in IDW's official Sourcebook series! Here's an example from the first issue of 25 profiles, out now!

sZ8ptTK.jpg

This first issue has been prepared by the staff, but going forward it's a community project, and we want YOU to contribute!

To get the full details and check out the first issue, head over to the Chronicles of Cybertron forum where project mastermind Daniel Adkins will explain all!

I'm really proud of our work on this! Some profiles I particularly recommend you check out are Dirge, General Blitz, Vexillum, and a certain "Mr. C" - and pay close attention to the "Weapons" sections on Ramjet and Wheeljack, yeah?

 

(As for my own work, I'm particularly proud of Blackarachnia and Spitfire.)

Very proud of all the staffers who did, pretty much without being asked, what I've always tried to teach and instill generation after generation of staff members from late 2002 and absent a two year vacation all the way through today. For this community and these friends go above, go beyond, give back what you can because that's what a true purple to the core Allsparker does. I asked them for more than 2, less than 100, print outs to show off at our first official Allspark get together at Robocon. They did what they do and said how about we just finish the first issue instead? And delivered.

 

And I'm very proud of the nice number of folks who aren't on the staff who are volunteering for the endeavor barely a day after launch. Back in mostly 2003 I got to play a small part in watching a previous generation, call them Allspark G1, push Battle Protocol across the finish line. I wrote Landfill's bios (sorry about that, lol), made a bunch of labeled CDs teaching myself how to the night before, second lol, and manned the table as OTFCC 2003 officially began and the biggest line was at our table where, someone correct me if I'm wrong, you got the CD and a limited edition exclusive print for $5 or $10. Proud moment that was.

 

I'm embarrased to say that during the original Sourcebook I was still too checked out with severe depression post life ruin that I barely remember it but looking back at it now on Ursa's archive it's incredible. I wish I'd been a better part of helping and promoting that. Now to watch what I'm going to call Allspark G3 even though a lot of you were around for those first two projects - as some settle down with families and responsibilities the rest step up because that's who we are - create a third one like a phoenix rising is yet another proud moment. While we're always evolving and adding (and sadly losing) members never change Allspark. :thumbsup

One thing I love about this is how it gives us fans the chance to tell the stories of characters that never really got a chance to shine in the IDW comics. Like one of my favorite characters, Inferno! DfbpEvGXUAASnoq.jpg

(I can't help it, I work as an editor.)

Man, these errors are going to haunt me until the end of time. I was so sleep deprived working on the templates, designs, even the social media icons were half made from scratch, doing some editing work (let's not even talk about actual work duties) along with Daniel and Broadside to rush this issue for PeteCon, that it's a miracle it doesn't have more errors.
