Ever notice Kath SOucie's Janine in the later episodes of Real Ghostbusters sounds like Tara Strong's Sari Sumdac?

@  Maximus Ambus : (28 September 2020 - 02:10 PM)

I wish they were more universal like Beast Wars, Animated or Prime and as professionally done,

@  Maximus Ambus : (28 September 2020 - 02:06 PM)

The Netflix shows are done for adults, the Generation toyline is for adults who grew up with G1.

Whatever happened to WFC Earthrise being a kids show X'D

@  wonko the sane? : (28 September 2020 - 11:43 AM)

Cool, my last tablet couldn't run it, and I stopped caring by the time I got the new one. So thanks!

@  Otaku : (28 September 2020 - 11:27 AM)

There are crossover characters, but the amount and distribution... Marvel Vs Capcom this ain't.  If @wonko the sane? my bad!

@  Otaku : (28 September 2020 - 11:21 AM)

I've been playing for *checks account* 1002 days, 23 hours.  So, by 2021, it will have been three years.  I think it takes place in its own continuity, largely inspired by G1 but borrowing from other places.

@  Otaku : (28 September 2020 - 11:19 AM)

@wonko the sane? Can only speak for Earth Wars, but so few they're easy to forget.

@  wonko the sane? : (28 September 2020 - 07:39 AM)

Didn't they already do the across universes thing in that tablet game?

@  Demovere Xeno : (28 September 2020 - 05:30 AM)

Also, make the setting an amalgamation of different Transformers series, rather than based on a specific one. Bring in things like 'Sentinel Major' as the primo Autobot jerk, and sleek car mode Vehicons as the Decepticons' basic grunt.

@  Demovere Xeno : (28 September 2020 - 05:27 AM)

KT just needs to incorporate the vehicle modes into the combat system, like Platinum did for Devastation, so they're for more than just wheeling it across the battlefield. =P

@  Demovere Xeno : (28 September 2020 - 05:25 AM)

Transformers: Warriors of Cybertron! =D

@  Tm_Silverclaw : (28 September 2020 - 05:15 AM)

Man, I just want another Devastation game... =(

@  NotVeryKnightly : (28 September 2020 - 01:53 AM)

Aren't TFs way more varied than Joes, as far as they'd work in gameplay? Like, Omega Supreme is vastly different from Bumblebee.

@  unluckiness : (27 September 2020 - 10:16 PM)

Hell, ripoff Super Robot Wars withTFs

@  unluckiness : (27 September 2020 - 10:16 PM)

IDK they could make something like FF tactics or Fire Emblem ripoff with Robots and i'd buy it

@  Steevy Maximus : (27 September 2020 - 09:43 PM)

See, I feel GI Joe (with it's varied cast) is a better fit for a strategy game, where as Transformers feels more suited for a shooter.

@  Maruten : (27 September 2020 - 08:28 PM)

I might give them points for making a strategy game if it's actually a good strategy game.

@  wonko the sane? : (27 September 2020 - 07:48 PM)

I mean, points for making a strategy game instead of third person shooter, but: urrrrgggg. Cyberverse.

@  wonko the sane? : (27 September 2020 - 07:47 PM)

A transformers game for the switch? *checks* Urrrggg... cyberverse...

@  Steevy Maximus : (27 September 2020 - 06:28 PM)

October will be a big month for Hasbro fans: Zoids, GI Joe AND Transformers all have brand new console games. All on the Switch at that!

@  wonko the sane? : (27 September 2020 - 09:04 AM)

At least in animated he was more driven than just "loyal bootlick".

@  unluckiness : (27 September 2020 - 08:29 AM)

Oof, That's a huge downgrade

@  Maximus Ambus : (27 September 2020 - 02:35 AM)

After rewatching Animated Sound and Fury, in my head canon Titans Return Soundwave is that Soundwave.

@  wonko the sane? : (26 September 2020 - 04:09 PM)

On an unrelated note: I just got the BBTS email about kingdom pre-orders... and even the stuff I don't want I'm perfectly willing to get if it means I can have the rest of it.

@  wonko the sane? : (26 September 2020 - 04:08 PM)

It's digimon. So first one, then the other.

@  TheMightyMol... : (26 September 2020 - 12:53 PM)

50/50 odds, it's either a helicopter with limbs, or a scantily-clad human with heli blades on their back. If female, 90% odds on the second one.

@  NotVeryKnightly : (26 September 2020 - 12:39 PM)

I read that as "Helicoptermon" and wondered what kind of Digimon that was.

@  Bass X0 : (26 September 2020 - 12:35 PM)

Helicopter-mom, transform!

@  Maximus Ambus : (25 September 2020 - 11:58 PM)

Aw I scratched the hood of my 35th anniversary Bluestreak. Fortunately he's in robot mode a lot.

No decoration could improve the wall more than Knockout himself

@  TheMightyMol... : (25 September 2020 - 05:04 PM)

@  -LittleAutob... : (25 September 2020 - 02:23 PM)

@  wonko the sane? : (24 September 2020 - 02:15 PM)

@  PlutoniumBoss : (24 September 2020 - 01:05 PM)

Beast Era, a blonde rat called Sunsqueaker.

@  TheMightyMol... : (24 September 2020 - 01:00 PM)

And then Knockout was in the wall again.

@  Sabrblade : (24 September 2020 - 12:53 PM)

Knockout: "Ooh, sorry, Lord Megatron. The correct word was... 'Decepticon'."

@  -LittleAutob... : (24 September 2020 - 11:15 AM)

Knockout: *while doing a crossword puzzle* Lord Megatron, whats a ten letter word for disappointment? | Megatron: ...... Starscream.

@  Maximus Ambus : (23 September 2020 - 01:20 PM)

@Bass X0 Shockwave did it.

@  TheMightyMol... : (23 September 2020 - 11:56 AM)

At least it's not Suntwerker.

@  wonko the sane? : (23 September 2020 - 11:19 AM)

I read that name as "suntweaker" the first time, and was terrified for a moment...

@  Bass X0 : (23 September 2020 - 03:41 AM)

Prowl did nothing wrong.

@  TheMightyMol... : (23 September 2020 - 01:50 AM)

Well, I sort of see it like this. I'd give James "Brad" another shot at writing, just because of who was in charge of him at the time. I'd be willing to see what Ruffalo can do outside of Lee at least once.
If it is the exact same, then yeah...

More and more people have come to the conclusion that an inability to draw proportions isn't just a stylistic difference since DW tanked.

The top link of Sipher's probably illustrates it most clearly -- Fort Max's shoulders shift size by a factor of two between two adjacent panels. As for what the hell happened to UM's head...

I'm not quite following -- the Titan UK volumes don't duplicate material that's in the Titan US ones, if that's what you mean.

There's a UK story list here with US issue numbers noted where applicable:

http://tfarchive.com...php?s=storylist

It helps to have read some of the US material to follow what happens in the UK ones, but it's not essential -- by and large they're self-contained arcs that join up with each other rather than closely interweaving the US stuff.

Oh, I see; I saw both of the Unicron-themed volumes, one from the US and one from the UK, and thought they were the same material. My bad.

Yeah, better than Micromasters but still terrible.

Sixshot never looks good with those wings flapped out across his arms like that, how can he move properly with the equivalent of flat boobies? You can fold them over, in fact, I think you're supposed to.

By the way Denyer, I was looking over the TF Archive site you post links to from your reviews recently and I read over the comic summaries and was really impressed with them. I've only read a few UK stories and the rest of the summaries in self-contained chunks but never altogether their US counterparts like that, very interesting, it adds a lot to G1 as a whole. I wish IDW would publish some UK stuff in Generations, like "Man of Iron" at least! That is an excellent introductory G1 story.

yeah, i was thinkign the same thing... almost like he's too used to drawing the micromasters, and poor Sixshot got the "squatty body" treatment... if this cover is any indication, the art in this issue will be a COMPLETE throwback to the DW days...

Guy needs to stick to coloring. Even Sixshot's guns are stubby, and I wasn't sure that was possible, really.

If you take the torso and head (which is a little higher than it should be to pull that pose, but not enough to be notable like Pat Lee's floating head/arm Prime) and then ditch everything else on that body, including the wings, then you have the start of a good Sixshot sketch.

It annoys me that he's ignored details like the two ridges that should be on either foot, done something totally strange with the shoulder wheels, has the perspective on the chest fins all wrong, put a vent on the front of the jeep mode on the wrong side... when he's drawn the correct placement inches away. The perspective on either gun is also off slightly, particularly on the right hander (check the small barrel on the bottom as opposed to the main gunbarrel for Sixshot's right rifle, the large barrel versus the far back of the gun on the left). He's also left off the wing wolf claws on the forearms, but I can forgive that one since they'd be mostly behind the rifles anyway. The most galling thing to me is that the back (terribly shortened) wings have been drawn... coming out of his shoulders.


Perspective, god damn it. LEARN IT.


I'm going to have to skip this one just to save myself the unnecessary headaches. Seriously, I don't know if the dude's just lazy about the pencil work or what, but he sure seems to like to disguise things with his color work.

I will say that the wing wolf turned out decently, but the best part should be the center of attention, namely the robot mode.
Fall of Cybertron will blow your mind. That is all.
