I'm kinda glad. A couple tie-in stories aside, Secret Invasion was a mess.

@  Steevy Maximus : (28 May 2017 - 07:23 AM)

Almost makes you wonder if some of the aborted Micronauts relaunch concept didn't slip in...

@  Whirl Maximus : (28 May 2017 - 07:20 AM)

Titan Masters could quite easily have been Transformers: Secret invasion, the return of the Mini-cons/Stentarians but noooooo, it had to be whatever the pit it is.

TMM, free shipping

@  unluckiness : (27 May 2017 - 07:33 PM)

Even if it's just 4 bucks, people shouldn't be patronizing obvious scams.

@  TheMightyMol... : (27 May 2017 - 05:37 PM)

What's the shipping price?

@  Steevy Maximus : (27 May 2017 - 05:18 PM)

Yeah, but it's cheaper than all the Hong Kong sellers running at $65+

@  2017 : (27 May 2017 - 05:07 PM)

It sounds like a scam.

@  Steevy Maximus : (27 May 2017 - 04:32 PM)

I know, RIGHT?!

@  wonko the sane? : (27 May 2017 - 04:23 PM)

Part of me is screaming "no", and part of me says "It's just four bucks, hit it and hope for the best".

Hmmm,...do I take the chance on a copy of Gundam Breaker 3 Break Edition for $4 from a China seller with zero feedback?

Grax is only invisible when no one is looking at them. No idea what's wrong with your Xort.

@  Whirl Maximus : (27 May 2017 - 04:16 AM)

Titan Masters is filled with false advertising, Grax doesn't make any figure invisible and Xort doesn't do anything with gravity. Maybe they'll be in the Transformer toys of tomorrow which will be actual robots with AI.

Loki makes life interesting. "I HAVE A PLAN FOR GETTING BACK THOR'S HAMMER!! HE'LL NEED TO WEAR THIS WEDDING DRESS!"

@  Echowarrior : (26 May 2017 - 09:16 PM)

Thor was a great guy. Same as most of the Asgard. Loki was a jerk, though.

@  wonko the sane? : (26 May 2017 - 07:21 PM)

I think thor was just too smart to NOT call us stupid next to him.

@  Pennpenn : (26 May 2017 - 07:18 PM)

Six of one, half a dozen of the other?

@  wonko the sane? : (26 May 2017 - 07:17 PM)

I always interpreted that scene to mean that asgardians weren't capable of breaking down problems in the same way as humans.

@  Pennpenn : (26 May 2017 - 06:58 AM)

I mean, SG1 was a good show on balance. One of my favourite things was Thor admitting he found humans good to keep around because they so often came up with stupid ideas that nevertheless worked out.

@  Whirl Maximus : (26 May 2017 - 05:59 AM)

Those episodes were 1969 and 2010.

@  Whirl Maximus : (26 May 2017 - 05:59 AM)

Stargate sg1 was loosely based on the movie, it thrived on continuity it was impressive how old situations and solutions would come back in unexpected ways. Continuum had it's villain use the characters own solution in two previous episodes against them.

@  Pennpenn : (26 May 2017 - 05:39 AM)

And yeah, name is based on a part of my surname. Can't remember why I picked it. Lost to memories of the primordial early 2000s.

@  Pennpenn : (26 May 2017 - 05:37 AM)

Like how Abydos in the movie is in another galaxy on the far side of the universe, but Abydos in SG1 is the closest world to Earth (and that was the only reason the gate could still get there) and even getting to other galaxies was impossible with the normal gates.

@  Pennpenn : (26 May 2017 - 05:35 AM)

I was very tired when I said that, but what I meant was a lot of stuff that is in the original Stargate movie is contradicted a lot in Stargate SG1.

@  unluckiness : (26 May 2017 - 05:29 AM)

OBJECTION

@  Tm_Silverclaw : (26 May 2017 - 12:48 AM)

I remember a fanfic that had Swindle as Lawyer.

@  SHIELD Agent 47 : (25 May 2017 - 10:08 PM)

No, I am referring to before Beast Wars: Uprising. I swear Swindle was a lawyer in a story before "A Brush With Infamy".

@  Telly : (25 May 2017 - 09:47 PM)

i cant get the link to work for the life of me. just go to the wiki and type "a brush with infamy" in the search box and itll come up

@  Telly : (25 May 2017 - 09:40 PM)

grr. check the post above this one. stupid non working link and i cant delete shouts...

@  SHIELD Agent 47 : (25 May 2017 - 09:25 PM)

I swear I've read the story but now I forget which one it is.

@  SHIELD Agent 47 : (25 May 2017 - 09:25 PM)

When has G1 Swindle been a lawyer before?

@  Rycochet : (25 May 2017 - 07:20 PM)

All I know about PennPenn is he's so good they named him twice.

@  Tm_Silverclaw : (25 May 2017 - 07:02 PM)

Nope.. Pennpenn is actually a Prinny dood!

@  Foffy : (25 May 2017 - 06:47 PM)

I wonder if Pennpenn is related to Sean Penn.

@  Kalidor : (25 May 2017 - 04:31 PM)

PennPenn - What are you talking about?

@  wonko the sane? : (25 May 2017 - 02:13 PM)

@  Pennpenn : (25 May 2017 - 09:47 AM)

The prequel-creep from the original Stargate movie to SG1 is kinda funny.

Trying to keep the momentum going we turn towards less "friendly" territory. Hailing from the Fun-Pub Wings universe we get a massive beast of the Decepticon homeland.




It took me a long time to zero in a design for this guy that I liked, but I'm really happy with the finished product. Have a bunch of Gearwulf sketches from working on this, so maybe they'll be next...


-ZacWilliam, feels like the text here was getting a bit fuzzy at the larger size (cant imagine why, didn't do anything different than usual) but I kept the image a bit smaller to try and compensate.

I love your description of Krystar, and it sounds a fascinating place.

I do kinda wonder about part of the Ice Bear's transformation: Its hind legs, do they combine with the fore-legs to create the arms? Do they just get folded away somewhere? Do they become its bipedal jaws; as a kind of mirror to its quadrupedal jaws, which become the bipedal hind legs?

(Also, the bipedal head makes me think of Lugnut for no apparent reason, kind of neat, even if not intentional.)

Thanks. icon-hotrod.gif I wanted to do another entry that reminded me of the Titanium Moosebot, but I didn't want to revisit the exact same environment. Setting it at the opposite pole in Kaon seemed like a good idea. I tried to throw a bit of Russian/Siberia into it since it's Kaon and that's kind of thematically appropriate. Though I admit a good bit of Skyrim bleed through as I was thinking about it as well. I almost wanted to find a way to reference the upcoming "Dovahkinn" Bulkhead remold, but didn't get a chance.

The quadruped head becomes the biped legs, yes. The quadruped front paws fold up a bit to make the biped arms. It's a bit untraditional but I actually picture the two hind legs going different place. One opens to form the bipedal head yeah, while the other folds down and inside to make the bipedal forms belly. icon-hotrod.gif

I had a straight on shot of the bipedal mode that probably showed that off more, but I figured the action shot was more interesting visually so went with that instead.

That was one of the hardest parts of this design. Coming up with a head that looked right for something called an iron bear but didn't say "metal earth bear". Turns out when you alter the features of a bear it stops looking bear-like real quick. I'm very happy I finally hit something that worked. Now it reminds me of Buford from Phineas and Ferb a little (especially in the shot I didn't use) but Lugnut is even better really. It works with his bearlike size and his Decepticon hardliner personality. I think you've convinced me to mentally make him a Krystarian native by construction.


-ZacWilliam, was originally going to have the Iron Bears be a mechasoccer team but decided Lobbing was more "Soviet Unionish" as sort of a ping pong parallel.

That works brilliantly, especially with Animated Lugnut's nickname of the Kaon Crusher.


And yeah, I kind of like the idea of Kaon as being a huge winter wasteland, making the settlements and mines blazing forges amongst the super-cooled air, with temperatures tending towards extremes.

Hey, surprise! icon-hotrod.gif

Thank the Beast Hunter's guide Hasbro released in Asia for this one. Nothing get's me excited to work on more pages than new Mechanimals being added to the franchise.






-ZacWilliam, and thanks to the last issue of the Club Mag there should be at least one more page close behind this one. icon-hotrod.gif

Thanks everyone. It was really fun to do one of these again.

I've got two or three more pages in various stages of sketching so, depending on how free time breaks down I'm hopefull there should be another page soon. icon-hotrod.gif


-ZacWilliam, what I really need is them too keep name-droping new mechanimals, I've worked through so many of the existing ones by this point.
