Do you need a criminal lawyer or a criminal, lawyer.

I don't suppose the allspark has any criminal lawyers from Georgia. ;P

@  NotVeryKnightly : (19 July 2019 - 01:17 PM)

It seems like, with these kind of things, anything not TF-specific is either in an existing thread or just not discussed since they're not part of something deemed important enough to get its own thread already.

@  Benbot : (19 July 2019 - 12:45 PM)

Yeah, but it's for Transformers specifically

@  Gryllid : (19 July 2019 - 12:39 PM)

There is. It's called "SDCC 2019 thread"

@  Benbot : (19 July 2019 - 12:24 PM)

no general SDCC thread?

@  Benbot : (19 July 2019 - 12:08 PM)

I never even bothered to see it.

@Sabrblade Depends on when you're here. I used to have the backups happen once daily, now I have them happen once per hour so you might often see a hesitation at the top of every hour for 30-45 seconds.

@  TriBlurr : (16 July 2019 - 05:26 PM)

We have a cornfield? Can I get a few ears?

@  Kalidor : (16 July 2019 - 12:56 PM)

And lastly, if it becomes too much hassle to deal with - it might just get sent into the cornfield and replaced with a Discord box anyway. So cool it.

@  Kalidor : (16 July 2019 - 12:55 PM)

Second thing is we do actually have the ability to ban users specifically from using Shoutbox if it's being abused like that

Last week I got my hands on the recently released Generations 2011 Volume 1 Book.

The second volume is due for release in July 2011 and will feature a comic written by Simon Furman and illustrated by Guido Guidi (translations of the last part of "Unite for the Universe" are coming soon).

I've scanned some of the pages I think people would find most interesting, as well as the interviews in case anyone ever decides to translate them.

Cover

Generations_2011_Volume_1_Cover.jpg

Page 1
Generations_2011_Volume_1_1.jpg

Page 60 (I found this interesting as they list it as unused designs, which is true for Reflector I believe, but the rest are either Derrick Wyatt having fun or stuff just made for the Almanacs). Note that Powered Convoy Magnus has Ultra Magnus' head instead of his own.
Generations_2011_Volume_1_60.jpg

Optimus Prime & Sari VS Motormaster and Shattered Glass Sari
Generations_2011_Volume_1_61.jpg

First Interview including the early concept of Rodimus Convoy.
Generations_2011_Volume_1_070.jpg Generations_2011_Volume_1_071.jpg Generations_2011_Volume_1_072.jpg

Second Interview in regards to Generations/Reveal the Shield/United. Note that Wheeljack was intended as the first use of the mold with Tracks as the retool. Design design work of Straxus, Lugnut, Perceptor, and Scourge. As well as Jazz's CAD design.
Generations_2011_Volume_1_074.jpg Generations_2011_Volume_1_075.jpg Generations_2011_Volume_1_076.jpg

Presented in full scan size, all the regular United Back Card Art.
Generations_2011_Volume_1_077.jpg

Interview regarding the new Dual Model Kits.
TF_Generations_2011_Vol_1_078.jpg TF_Generations_2011_Vol_1_079.jpg

Interview about new Kabaya Kits.
TF_Generations_2011_Vol_1_080.jpg TF_Generations_2011_Vol_1_081.jpg

The Canceled Jetwing Convoy Prototype from Unite the Universe.
TF_Generations_2011_Vol_1_125.jpg TF_Generations_2011_Vol_1_126.jpg TF_Generations_2011_Vol_1_127.jpg

Stepper and Nebulon page (note Stepper has gold painted eyes in these photos - unlike the clear blue on the Million Publishing website).

Back Cover

I recommend all the Generations books as they are all very well put together and offer some very nice detailed photos and a backstage view of the design process for Transformers. My only regret is that, of course, the books are in Japanese. Though this only really tends to affect the interviews and more informational pages.

Yeah they're very similar, just drawn by someone different (I presume) with some minor differences in designs.

Designer interview...

I love those. I lost the link the the one TFW translated that pointed out the original Rodimus Prime lost articulation because it was Takara's response to comments from Hasbro that Transformers before then "broke too easily".

Well they weren't used for the TV show, so I guess the "unused design" category still fits.

Wing Saber is kind of a weird choice to depict like that as an Animated Autobot, given that he's a flying Autobot with gun hands elsewhere...

It's like they gave someone a small blurry picture of the original drawings for Sideways and Wing Saber, and said to just work it out.

This is the fourth instalment of the Generations Book. The first one was released twice as the Generation Book and Generation Deluxe, then there were were three updates in 2009 and there will be three volumes this year.

The Lugnut is a mock-up / custom and was not planned for release.

I published some scans from the magazine over the weekend if everyone is interested in seeing more over at Transformers At The Moon.
