You know that Patton Oswalt knew he'd made it as an entertainer when people stopped asking him whether he was Pat or Oswald and where was the other one.

@  Shrug : (21 October 2017 - 10:20 AM)

He does lots of voice work, but it was young Oswalt in my dream, so I guess it was the King of Queens edition.

@  Bass X0 : (21 October 2017 - 09:56 AM)

I only know about Patton Oswalt from Transformers.

We won because Ellen kept going up the other teams and telling them to not worry about their hair looking silly in their helmets.

@  Shrug : (21 October 2017 - 09:10 AM)

I had a dream I was in a team kick scooter competition and the 3 people on my team were Ellen DeGeneres, Patton Oswalt, and my third grade bus driver.

Ordered a watchmaker pin remover from Amazon.

That's never good. Buy it from a place that will replace it?

@  Nevermore : (20 October 2017 - 04:57 AM)

Gaaaah, Hasbro. My Transformers Tribute Optimus Prime (from the two-pack with Orion Pack) has a misassembled part that has another part connected to it via a metal pin...

@  Robowang : (19 October 2017 - 05:22 PM)

I just know they have the same ID number in the computer as deluxes, so the search feature on the website is useless.

@  Robowang : (19 October 2017 - 05:21 PM)

No idea on price.

@  Shrug : (19 October 2017 - 05:14 PM)

Oh thanks. I just assumed it was a special item. Does that mean it'll be the $18ish the normal Deluxes are or can Walgreens price them separately?

@  Robowang : (19 October 2017 - 05:11 PM)

Before you go hunting at Walgreens, know that the Clone two-pack number is identical to the regular deluxe number. An in-stock listing for the clones likely just means they have deluxes in stock.

@  Shrug : (18 October 2017 - 10:47 AM)

I'm not saying they're the same. They're clearly not. But members of both parties do receive large sums of money from telecom companies. When it comes to net neutrality, the issue isn't solely bipartisan so much as it's Old Politicians that don't understand technology.  Republicans do seem intent on making it worse intentionally though.

@  Paladin : (18 October 2017 - 10:40 AM)

anyone who still says "they're both the same!" after the past 10 months is WILLFULLY ignorant.

@  unluckiness : (18 October 2017 - 10:22 AM)

@  Evac : (17 October 2017 - 04:34 PM)

If, say, Hillary or Bernie was president, we'd have a chance, but with the current administration... We're pretty much hugged.

Excellent work, Walky!

By the way, everyone - since my original post, more Jose Delbo artwork has gone up on Heritage Auctions. The pages are less Transformer-heavy than the original one I tossed up, but here they are anywho:

http://obscuretf.com.....2042 Page.jpg

http://obscuretf.com.....0Pages 01.jpg

http://obscuretf.com.....048 Pages.jpg

The inking on that Starscream/Ratbat panel is surprisingly good - oh, ah-ha. "The Flames of Boltax" was inked by Danny Bulanadi, not Dave Hunt. That would explain it.

Yeah, I love to see the old Marvel comics recolored properly. It makes me want whole comics recolored. I'd buy them. I think I may even say that Delbo's art colored like this is preferable to the modern IDW comics.

I just compared the actual comic panel to Walky's recolor. Its amazing how the details that get overlooked in the original stand out much more. Before, I just read the text in that panel and moved on, now there are things to look at and take in.

pretty sure its been brought up to IDW before!

and its not that they're against the idea [they've re-colored a LOT of classic Doctor Who comics for instance]

It's not possible to generate new black-and-white art from the existing colour proofs? I know something like this was done to allow The Killing Joke to be recoloured.

Yeah there are a few ways that I can think of. This is just a quick Posterize -> Copy paste the lines to a new layer.



Uploaded with ImageShack.us

But ultimately you probably need to use all tricks (like a threshold to get the lines deep in darkness) and some restoration to get the best quality lineart.

Now I didn't check how well this worked with a high res scan of a flats colored oldschool book. In the end I guess it depends if its worth the cost to the publisher.

Now those are some cool pages! Tha "Boat Max" page was always memorable for me because he pretty much never TFed in the comic. And the rest have a great line-up of Comic major characters of the time.

Quick, someone kidnap Walky and get him to color in these too!


ZacWilliam, who else around here colors well? We need a longer list of folks to kidnap and force to do art!

--Andrew S.



its definitely possible, but I think "not worth the work" is the reason for not pursuing something like this

IDW's main concern are their own titles and to dedicate the time and resources to restoring somebody else's comics [not to mention old comics] isnt as financially viable. [they were even leary about even just re-printing the old stuff as well IIRC]

IDW's still a business and I think i'd agree with the call. I dont think the pay off would be substantial enough to warrant such a project, unfortunately






and if anyones interested i'll color one or part of these and livestream it!

might be kinda neat

even if you dont make it to watch it live it'll still be up on my livestream page and you can watch it after the fact. i'll probably only have the time from around 3-5 AM PST so i dont expect many people to make that lol

but still!

Woot! I loved this version of Pointblank's head, with the Blurr-like crest on the helmet. His Max looks great as well. Though if it wasn't for the internet, I'd have never guessed where Fort Max's tower goes in his robot mode (his sides), never having seen the toy as a kid.

So what's his excuse for being so horrible with GIJoe while most of the other colorists on that title kept a good grip on who's who with limited block coloring, even though Joes looked even more alike than Transformers do?

I'd go as far as to say "Spoken like a guy who read 20 different Marvel titles of that era and none of them looked as terrible as Yomtov's despite being used with the same tools"
