And only Optimus was angry. Hound and Crosshairs were happy jerks. They loved killing because killing gave them pleasure.

I like his design. I think I've entirely blotted his personality out of my memory.

@  Shrug : (24 April 2018 - 06:53 AM)

Thats part of why I like the AoE/TLK bot crew so much. They seem like the angry jerks that'd actually survive in an extended war.

@  PlutoniumBoss : (24 April 2018 - 01:01 AM)

I dislike him despite the trenchcoat. He's a jerk, and not the lovable kind. One note, and that note is douchebag.

@  Cybersnark : (23 April 2018 - 04:47 PM)

Honestly, I like him DESPITE the "trenchcoat." I prefer to keep it folded behind him like some Gundam-style flight-pack.

@  SHIELD Agent 47 : (23 April 2018 - 11:04 AM)

People really love movieverse Crosshairs sheerly for the sake of his trenchcoat, don't they?

@  Plokatron : (22 April 2018 - 10:17 PM)

@RichardT1977 @TM2-Megatron I'm not normally one to pull the Ruined Forever card but I care less than zip about anything involving the 2017 Power Rangers movie! They screwed it up worse than Bay past DoTM and a Mastodon has four legs not six! While I'm on this mini rant anyone remember the scans of the Super Sentai Mecha book from a while back? Would it be against the rules to ask if anyone knows where to find the new updated book scanned? I really want the Concept Art for ideas.

The first Transformers live action film really IS a lot better than what popular culture has made it out to be.

@  TM2-Megatron : (21 April 2018 - 08:27 PM)

I dunno if I'd go that far. I enjoyed the first Bayformers more than the MMPR Movie remake

@  RichardT1977 : (21 April 2018 - 08:22 PM)

For the record, it was better than the (live-action) Transformers movies.

@  wonko the sane? : (21 April 2018 - 08:21 PM)

@  Sabrblade : (20 April 2018 - 11:14 PM)

Eh, I guess. He did fairly well on his own as an independent in his first appearance and such.

@  Otaku : (20 April 2018 - 10:04 PM)

@Sabrblade Vulture tends to fare poorly as his own boss. Working for a great version of Doc Ock ain't a bad gig... and I did ask if about "bad" as opposed to "not the best". ;)

@  Plokatron : (20 April 2018 - 09:53 PM)

@Egon1982 No my friend Mutator Spiders as in get caught in their web and you are mutated into a even more animalistic creature than you were. Hordika were Half Sentient beings half Wild animal and unlike Spiderman it affected each race slightly differnt with Toa being of a similar mutation to each other. My guess for Spiderman is he would become more spider like but with a inside skeletal structure hmm wonder what Visorak Venom would do to CNA make Dinobot Predacon like monsters or something wild?!

@  Paladin : (20 April 2018 - 04:15 PM)

compared to the "youth-sucking" gimmick from the other series? BIG step up.

@  Sabrblade : (20 April 2018 - 03:57 PM)

@Otaku: What about that show's take on Vulture? He had potential at first but he eventually just settled into being a lackey rather than his own boss.

@  Egon1982 : (20 April 2018 - 02:44 PM)

Did anyone else thought Thunder in Big Trouble in Little China when he was inflating looked like a garbage pail kid before he blew up into salad? I always thought that since seeing the movie in theaters at age 5. 

@  Egon1982 : (20 April 2018 - 02:25 PM)

Mutator spiders as in man-spider?

@  Otaku : (20 April 2018 - 11:06 AM)

Shocker was a pretty good villain in The Spectacular Spider-Man animated series. Wait, does that count since I can't think of a bad take on any character from that series? ;)

@  Arazyr : (20 April 2018 - 09:26 AM)

Ontario/Detroit area? Yeah. Supposedly, you could feel it from where I live, but I didn't notice. I never feel these things. 8(

@  Paladin : (20 April 2018 - 07:08 AM)

so that WAS an earthquake last night...

@  Plokatron : (19 April 2018 - 09:43 PM)

Webhead Vs. Mutater Spiders. Hmmm I can see this ending badly with HordikaMan Hey maybe it'd make Venom catchable with spider sense.

@  Broadside : (19 April 2018 - 09:16 PM)

Can't wait for Spider-Man to fight the Visorak

@  RichardT1977 : (19 April 2018 - 05:32 PM)

"Sensei Yoketron" makes my inner Japanese student twitch.

For those that don't speak or didn't learn Japanese, titles such as "sensei" (an honorific usually used for teachers or masters) and "taisa" (colonel) is placed after the person's name. E.g., "Kakashi-sensei" and "Mustang-taisa".

Okay, episode summaries!

SUMMARIES:

1. Three-parter opening "Trial of Megatron." Sentinel vies for power, Bulkhead's hometown is attacked, he and Sari go off to save it. Megatron uses this as a distraction to transport the entire prison of Kaon to the middle of Lake Erie in a bighuge prison break.

2. "Allspark-alypse Now!" Sentinel gets the bright idea to use the Allspark to beat Megatron for good, and comes to Earth. Prowl's ghost goes "not on my watch" and possesses Allspark-sparked bots (like Wreck-Gar) to warn Optimus and explain why this is bad juju.

3. Soundwave battles Steampunk Luddites. No, really. I read this and I went "OH MY GOD STEAMPUNK IN MY TRANSFORMERS." OP teams up with them to help beat Soundwave.

4. Mirror Universe ep, with Sari and Bulkhead filling in Cliffjumper's role in SG.

5. Minicons escape from Kaon into detroit and start taking everything apart, including Transformers. Ratchet and Fanzone team up.

6. Cosmos (!) comes to earth with an important message and borks it up when he scans a B-movie saucer prop.

7. Megatron and the Constructicons have a turf war over engergon.

8. Two-part finale, which sounds like the Ultimate Showdown of Ultimate Destiny, with OP gathering as many allies as he can to beat Megatron forever.

1. Megatron escapes. In the next episode? RESET BUTTON!

2. Prowl's ghost?

3. Two thumbs way up!!!

4, 5. Sounds like fun.

6. I'm glad this didn't happen.

7. The Constructicons are more badass than I thought. Sounds like fun.

8. So, like the end of season 3 then.

+1 for GWAR reference.

At first read-through, I'm not entirely thrilled with canonizing Alignment and now "officially" having sent Blackarachnia and Waspinator into the Beast Wars. But the former had basically all-but-happened already anyway given its thorough invasion of JTF fiction, and the latter was always a toss-up and if a book like the Almanac DIDN'T make it happen the pent-up fanservice power would have imploded in an antimatter vortex destroying the universe. So I guess I'll have to deal with it.

Did I send them to a Beast Wars universe? I tried to make it intentionally ambiguous. Blackarachnia doesn't know if she's on a new alien planet, or on a remote part of Earth. Standing stones does not the Beast Wars make.

Funny story about how that page came to be. The model sheets were labeled "Primitive Planet," so originally I named the planet Energoa. Then, Derrick came back to me and said that she might actually be on Earth, so I went back in and hedged my bets, so that it'd work either way. In any event, I wasn't intentionally trying to send them to a BW universe / dimension / future / whatever.

As for Alignment... I like Alignment. The Marvel G2 comic was Furman's baby, I don't see much reason why it shouldn't end the way he wanted it to.

In each of their vignettes, BA and Waspy mention unnatural standing stone formations. Waspy further notes seeing a floating mountain. Of course, as pointed out above, it isn't absolutely necessarily THE Beast Wars. For one thing, they'd have to have traveled to an entirely different dimension--something transwarp cells have never been shown to do.


It's overall an astounding book out of an astounding pair of books. I've never read anything like it--that kind of playful active engagement with the reading audience, REVELING in experiential interactivity and layers upon layers of storybuilding. They're the perfect companion pieces to the series. Perhaps for that reason, I actually found the later chapters surprisingly bittersweet. There's all this-and-that about how much effort went into creating material that could never and will never be finished, and the notes from Eric and ESPECIALLY Aaron struck me as pretty wistful. I've read a lot of stuff from Aaron over the years but never anything like this message, where he talks about how much they valued winning the fans over to Animated and how everybody's efforts worked out so well and how it hadn't ended like anybody really wanted it to and they're so glad to see people still cherish it. And we do.
