Is $30 a good deal for Subscription Service Breakdown?

@  Trpodeca : (08 August 2020 - 06:24 AM)

Oh dear God no. Twitter has changed it's default layout to the terrible new one. Why waste so much space on the left?

@  Steevy Maximus : (07 August 2020 - 08:28 PM)

@Bass X0, yeah, the Joe comic got REALLY solid in the upper 20s to the Cobra Civil War. It's interesting to see how well the Joe comic has aged relative to the cartoon. Where as I feel the opposite is true of Transformers

@  -LittleAutob... : (07 August 2020 - 03:58 PM)

Its so fun watching past TF Conventions.

@  Bass X0 : (07 August 2020 - 02:20 PM)

I've been reading classic 80s G.I. Joe lately. Its still decent even though I don't have any nostalgia towards it.

@  Sabrblade : (07 August 2020 - 08:50 AM)

Think of it as Adam West Batman instead. ;)

@  wonko the sane? : (07 August 2020 - 07:49 AM)

That sounds more like the flash, or maybe booster gold than batman.

@  Sabrblade : (07 August 2020 - 12:27 AM)

They would get bored fighting each other and instead decide to take an epic cross-country road trip together.

@  RichardT1977 : (06 August 2020 - 08:57 PM)

What would happen if Batman were to fight Squirrel Girl?

@  PlutoniumBoss : (04 August 2020 - 09:03 PM)

Unless you count the Mask vs Lobo special, but that's less a duel and more a duet.

@  PlutoniumBoss : (04 August 2020 - 08:52 PM)

My favorite crossover fight was Thor vs Shazam/Captain Marvel. Early in the fight, Thor discovers that Billy Batson needs lightning to transform, and being a god of lightning he simply denies him that.

@  Sabrblade : (04 August 2020 - 08:46 PM)

Let's see a fight between Death Battle and Super Power Beat Down

@  TheMightyMol... : (04 August 2020 - 06:15 PM)

Which Lobo later claimed was because he was paid to take a dive. Yes, really.

@  TheMightyMol... : (04 August 2020 - 06:15 PM)

And then there's the times it's been decided by a fan vote, which is how we get things like Lobo (who can go toe-to-toe with Superman at full strength) losing to Wolverine.

@  Nevermore : (04 August 2020 - 05:49 PM)

And then there are the "but my favorite characater will totes win because I say so" people.

@  Nevermore : (04 August 2020 - 05:49 PM)

I mean, there are some people who really approach this from a somewhat reasonable standpoint, coming up with a plausible scenario and a setting that creates a fair environment that doesn't favor one character.

@  Nevermore : (04 August 2020 - 05:46 PM)

My favorite stupid "why would they even fight each other" question recently was about three versions of Optimus Prime (G1, Bayverse and Aligned).

@  Nevermore : (04 August 2020 - 05:45 PM)

Batman obviously can beat everyone. Even Galactus. He's Batman. He's so smart, he'll just throw a Batarang and hit the weak spot at Galactus's forehead, knocking him out instantaneously.

@  wonko the sane? : (04 August 2020 - 11:37 AM)

It's almost like all drama is just manufactured pissing contests to keep us all entertained and distracted. :p

@  Tm_Silverclaw : (04 August 2020 - 10:16 AM)

Or they could go White Ranger vs Scorpion route and have both win. ;P

@  ▲ndrusi : (04 August 2020 - 09:35 AM)

Besides, we all know the answer is nearly always "they fight to a standstill and then team up against a common enemy."

@  ▲ndrusi : (04 August 2020 - 09:29 AM)

The best way to prove this is to give an example where the match is really lopsided in favor of one character but in popularity they're either evenly matched or the weaker one is more popular.

@  ▲ndrusi : (04 August 2020 - 09:27 AM)

The "who would win in a fight" discussions are really just people trying to make "which one's better" into something you can theoretically measure objectively, usually in a very specific way they think they've predetermined their favorite will win.

@  Otaku : (04 August 2020 - 02:01 AM)

@Nevermore So... you're saying you didn't like DC Versus Marvel/Marvel Versus DC?

@  Steevy Maximus : (03 August 2020 - 06:59 PM)

So, what happened to Hasbro's Zoids relaunch? An English dub, some stuff in southeast Asia, and now a game coming in October? That it?

@  wonko the sane? : (03 August 2020 - 10:46 AM)

Tidal wave, cause shooting water gets you nowhere.

@  Darth Gonzo : (03 August 2020 - 09:57 AM)

Who would win Tidal Wave or Broadside?

@  -LittleAutob... : (03 August 2020 - 08:17 AM)

Btw Happy birthday to those people in the box to the right \o/

@  -LittleAutob... : (03 August 2020 - 08:16 AM)

The bottom line is obvious. It makes no literal sense to fight someone on your faction. :/

@  wonko the sane? : (03 August 2020 - 06:14 AM)

That's because you're doing it wrong. You're supposed to just stack skills and ability against each other. It's not the palace of doom, it's an episode of american gladiators.

@  Nevermore : (03 August 2020 - 04:32 AM)

The only obvious winners of such a fight would be the bad guys.

@  Nevermore : (03 August 2020 - 04:29 AM)

And what does it even matter? They should work together, not stupidly fight each other for the mindless entertainment of idiot onlookers.

@  Nevermore : (03 August 2020 - 04:29 AM)

Why would two good guys fight each other? What are they fighting over?

@  Nevermore : (03 August 2020 - 04:28 AM)

I never understood these "who would win in a fight between two good guys" discussions. They make no sense to me.

@  Maximus Ambus : (02 August 2020 - 04:17 PM)

If G1 had continued we'd have had Starscream back in spirit - through Krunk, Snapdragons partner and possibly Skullcruncher unless he was mute.

@  Bass X0 : (02 August 2020 - 12:28 PM)

There are some decent impersonators in fandubs though.

@  -LittleAutob... : (02 August 2020 - 10:45 AM)

The only true Starscream voices are Steve Blum and Chris Latta, hands down.

@  Sabrblade : (02 August 2020 - 10:14 AM)

Why they didn't have Scott McNeil voicing that Starscream, when he was the one who had imitated Chris Latta when he voiced Cobra Commander in the DiC G.I. Joe cartoon, is beyond me.

@  wonko the sane? : (02 August 2020 - 09:57 AM)

Say what you will, that was an awesome scene.

@  Maximus Ambus : (02 August 2020 - 08:36 AM)

Beast Wars Starsream "I am AIR COMMANDER Starscream of the DECEPTICON BATTLEFLEET!"

@  Nevermore : (02 August 2020 - 07:02 AM)

I liked TF: Prime Starscream.

@  -LittleAutob... : (01 August 2020 - 08:36 PM)

Hearing Starscream's screechy voice in Cyberverse has to be the most annoying thing ever in Transformers. Even his G1 voice wasn't as bad. :doh

All the G1 cartoon model refs anyone would ever need in one place! AND in colour! The most accurately coloured models online! Product of a long time sampling of Toei's cel-vinyl colours and of painstaking analysis of DVD screengrabs + available scans of animation cels! :)

So, first off...

-The sheets looking like this showcase final models with final colours and, when available, final transformation charts:

The ones coloured per production colour guides (many of which were unearthed by James Eatock https://twitter.com/cerealgeek) will be marked with an asterisk. Those that aren't may be updated at some point in the future.

-The sheets looking like this showcase reproductions of the, at times very odd, colour schemes that Akom used:

-The sheets looking like this showcase the early colour schemes. Ones coloured per early colour guides are marked with an asterisk:

BTW, if anyone has original colour guides (example: https://imgur.com/VxRwLiW) or pencil art with colour codes ( https://imgur.com/wzWCaLm ), please send scans!

Now lets begin... :)



The Autobot scale charts:



-The Decepticons scale charts:




(NOTE: Aerialbots are omitted because scale chart for them has yet to show up online. Same goes for season 2 minibots)



(NOTE: Stunticons are omitted because scale chart for them has yet to show up online.)




Up next: Season 3! :)
14-Oct-'19: Updated early Ravage sheet. Had to revise a set of Toei colours as better samples showed up online.
06-Dec-'19: Updated Spike (normal and Akom variant) and Sparkplug due to revision of YR1 colour (used for their shirt)
10-Dec-'19: SEASON 2 models added!
11-Dec-'19: Fixed Devastators size on the season 1 Decepticon scale chart
13-Dec-'19: Due to revision of a set of colours, Ariel, Elita One and Karen Fishook have been updated
14-Dec-'19: Due to revision of ANOTHER set of colours, the following have been updated:
Early Ironhide
Early Optimus
Akom Optimus
Early Ratchet

BOT cast
Prince Jumal

Early Megatron
Early Ravage
Early Shockwave
Early Starscream
Akom Starscream
Early Thundercracker & Skywarp

01-Jan-'20 - Revised Constructicons
29-Feb-'20 - Revised Ratchet (head shots added) and added his transformation chart
16-May-'20 - Updated Wheeljack and Moonracer due to revision of colour "I-1" (light green).
17-May-'20 - Updated Early Brown and Sentinel Robot due to revision of colour "O-1" (light grayed blue).
15-Jul-'20 - Updated Bluestreak (final & early) and early Cliffjumper due to revision of colour "B-2" (light pinkish orange).
20-Jul-'20 - Another update due to colour revision. This time around CB 1, 2 and 3 (the light grayish blue). Anyway, the following are updated: Huffer (final and early sheet), Early Hound sheet, Sideswipe, Early Ravage sheet, Reflector, Rumble, Early Soundwave sheet, Air Raid, First Aid, Groove, Poplock - Raoul & Rocksteady, Chromia, Skids and Decepticon Warrior Robots (War Dawn).
28-Jul-'20 - TF:TM models added! 

Also, I've added generic Decepticons to season 1 Decepticon gallery.

Currently I'm working on TF:TM batch. After that I'll get on season 3. :)

TF:TM models up online! :)
BTW, if you're saving these onto your computer - please go through the change log to make certain you're up to date. ;)
Next - Season 3. But I'll need some help as material for it has A LOT of holes. Here's the list of stuff I need:

I only need a high rez scan of the line art. So if you have a colour model cel - scan it, convert it to CMYK and extract the black channel.
EDIT: And Broadside. I need back view of his robot and vehicle modes.

EDIT 2: Oh, and here are the recently uncovered model sheets that I mentioned in the gallery:

I would've coloured Blitzwing as well but I'm missing some of the colours from that different colour chart.

Wow these are amazing! Those scale charts are honestly something I'd love to print and frame once they're complete. 

Is there any way these could be put together in a zip to download?

Maybe once the project's finished.
