Does anyone else find the title of this thread incredibly redundant and boring?

Aardvark 2006-08-06 12:56 PM

I know I do...:yawn:

"Comic Interview" would probably've confused some people...

Nice find, Aardy. :up:

SPOILER! (select to read)
I particularly like the "post-Cybertron" stuff.


"Junk? No plans as yet. Quintessa likewise. Unicron, definitely on the backburner. Iíve no foreseeable plans to go there. I feel strongly the character has been overused."

Yay. That's no reason to hold off with the placards, dear fandom...

"Iím slightly ducking and diving around the issue of Ďfemaleí Transformers until I can find something, a rationale, that works for me (and for the rebooted storyline as a whole)."

...yep, keep ahold of those placards...

"Every time I try and rationalize gender in giant robots it makes my head hurt."

...and keep fingers crossed, but common sense may be in the ascendancy.

"I will, however, be looking in on Cybertron much more in the second BW series,"

Aces. Might pick it up, then.

They have female transformers to expand horizens and emulate other cultures, also for recreational activites.

Why should Unicron, Junk, Quintessa and so on be in the new IDW universe? som new races and planets and themes wouldn't go amiss...

Such as? What can you do with two robots, a cable and sexes that you can't do with two robots, a cable and no sexes?

Arcee...

Lots of good news in there. Yay, no Unicron!
And just about the only origin for Female Transformers I ever liked was "Prime's Rib". A lot more entertaining than "Search for Alpha Trion", anyway.
Also, I'm looking forward to the Sixshot one-shot (lol!1!) most of all. Hopefully, Furman watched some Headmasters and will let a little bit of that influence his take on the character.

And in other news, isn't Tails just so snuggly wuggly adorable? Awww....

I don't actually mean the title itself. I mean the prospect of Yet Another Furman Interview. Seriously, this man has given more interview than he has written decent stories at this point.

But what if he watched the Star TV dub!
"You Autobots are a bunch of fools, don't even think about winning this battle"

I wonder if Quickswitch will be a "guest star" in Sixshot's one-shot (roflmao!!!111). :)

He's certainly the snuggwuggliest fox Iíve ever seen.

Looking forward to the one-shots. The characters he picked are all favorites of mine.

I'd say Amy is more Snugly than Tails.


I take it the one Shot (not to be confused with Six Shot, but I think we should mention than Spengs got in there first with that one before others run it into the ground when the comic comes out) on Nebulos will be the Nightbeat one?
