Nothings as lovin' as human flesh in the oven!

@  The Doctor Who : (18 January 2017 - 07:28 AM)

I've only had it once, but that was because I forgot to disable adblock on my tablet. Haven't had it otherwise.

@  Jalaguy : (18 January 2017 - 03:52 AM)

I only ever got it once, on the one PC, for whatever reason...

@  Noideaforaname : (17 January 2017 - 09:42 PM)

Not getting the Adblocker message anymore.

@  Kalidor : (17 January 2017 - 05:54 PM)

Starting now you shouldn't be getting the message any further

@  Kalidor : (17 January 2017 - 05:53 PM)

Did you still get it? It should be removed now

@  Telly : (17 January 2017 - 03:14 PM)

i probly shouldnt have said that...

@  Noideaforaname : (17 January 2017 - 01:15 PM)

That AdBlock message has popped up on my iPhone *without* any type of ad blocking, and the mandatory 30-second wait means I'm just not bothering with the site on there anymore...

@  BlackMax : (17 January 2017 - 12:05 PM)

So far it's only happened the one time for me.

@  Ms Virion : (17 January 2017 - 11:02 AM)

I got the popup on a tablet I just bought that I haven't even installed anything on yet. =|

@  Fnu Aw : (17 January 2017 - 09:50 AM)

I've got the same problem. I disabled my adblock on this site, but I'm still getting that message.

@  Jalaguy : (17 January 2017 - 09:38 AM)

I got the ad block warning on my work PC yesterday (with no blocking on), but not my laptop at home.

@  Patchouli Kn... : (17 January 2017 - 08:53 AM)

I wish the ads would stop showing me things I want but can't afford to have

@  Kalidor : (16 January 2017 - 11:15 PM)

Correct

@  BlackMax : (16 January 2017 - 10:37 PM)

So correct me if I'm wrong... it's good that we see the ads, but it's better if we click them?

@  Kalidor : (16 January 2017 - 05:24 PM)

I wonder if any other blockers (javascript, etc) are triggering it. I hate to do it but I have to do something. I don't want to be like Forbes that makes the site un-usable with adblock.. but I do want to remind people that ads are necessary.

@  Dracula : (16 January 2017 - 01:23 PM)

Yeah I had turned off adblock a while ago and got the same message last night.

@  Lazy Garou : (16 January 2017 - 12:38 PM)

anyone seen the korean method 1?

@  Arazyr : (16 January 2017 - 12:11 PM)

I got something similar recently. I think it was due to the site being set up to use https. AdBlock counted it as a different site. I had to update my settings.

@  wonko the sane? : (16 January 2017 - 09:31 AM)

I got it this morning, but it turns out my ad blocker was actually on. I could have sworn I turned it off for the allspark already though...

@  BlackMax : (16 January 2017 - 07:20 AM)

Yeah, so did I. Only one time though.

@  Pennpenn : (16 January 2017 - 03:05 AM)

Got a popup saying I'm using ad-block on this site when I am not. Huh.

@  Bass X0 : (16 January 2017 - 02:29 AM)

In that case I say it is survival of the cutest! Do I hear a second on that? And against?

@  TheMightyMol... : (16 January 2017 - 01:24 AM)

The platypus is nature's way of saying "I made this from scraps I found on the floor, and it can STILL hug you up."

@  MEDdMI : (15 January 2017 - 11:05 PM)

That's what they WANT you to think. They're already a mashup of at least 3 other creatures. Platypi are already Megazords by themselves.

@  Tm_Silverclaw : (15 January 2017 - 10:52 PM)

But it's a platypus.. They don't really do anything.

Artwork still looks great compared to Chaos. I wonder how it'll look in the print edition?

Optimus has a funny looking dramatic karate chop pose in one panel. His talk with Megatron doesn't seem quite right to me, compared to how things played out in Ongoing 22 and 23, but I guess that can be hand waved by Optimus' punishment.

Things get very overly dramatic, and the Autobots are shown in some pretty silly over the top action poses. Kinda fun, I guess. It's like the Autobot version of '300'.

Sky Lynx actually looks kinda cool. Well done, Livio.

The ending is... well, it's Metzen, that's for sure. I'm still muddied with the Primes, but that's my fault at this stage.

And am I the only one wondering if getting 'Ener-jacked in Slam' is the Cynertronian version of dropping the soap in the prison shower?

I kind of liked the twist at the end. We don't know if he's a Decepticon sympathizer or whether Zeta's really setting Orion up this time, and in my mind I could be happy with either possibility. The idea that some bots in this might not be on the side you traditionally expect them to is an interesting thought.

Can't get into it. The art is ok, but the story doesn't interest me. Personaly, when I first heard about Autocracy, I thought its going to be set long before M:O for some reason. Would like it better that way.

Right now I'm only interested if they're going to show how Optimus was forced into being Prime, and that it was Hot Rod who was really chosen by the Matrix.

I kind of liked the portrayal of Hot Rod in issue 5. It provides some decent backstory as to why he launched the Lost Light.

Also we see why Hound joined him.

Megatron and the Decepticons were good in #7. #8 can't come quick enough.

It was a decentish issue, but man alive Orion's pep talk to Rodimus at the end was practically a Stan Bush song.

I loved how Megatron is being perfectly reasonable with Orion, and would have let them go after their talk, but no, Ironhide and Orion have to bust it and kill some Cons and make a dashing escape with BB...

Really, the whole thing could be playing in the SG universe so far. Or Bayformers. Because watching this Orion I fully expect him to say "Let's kill them all!" at some point.

I liked how Orion Pax became Optimus Prime. Same as how Megatron became Galvatron in the animated movie.

This series is a disappointment.

Both ongoings are fantastic serieses, with a new take on the tired Transformers formula.

This is an awful hash which ignores a lot of the interesting sounding hints from the regular Transformers comic.

For example:
- The matrix was supposed to "hurt" OP.
- OP was clearly hinted as being rebuilt by someone who had a vested interest in him being a future leader (not someone who was trying to extract the pity from his spark)

The untold story in the ongoing / etc was far more interesting than the actual story.

Also; The art getting boring. It shines in small doses, but as a complete on going? Not really. At times it is sublime like a Geoff Senior work, at other times it feels like Rob Ruffolo is filling in.
