He didn't seem especially happy last year, anyway. Wildfur had just started producing art packs of the inks for DA. I reckon it's hard to get enthusiastic about drawing when the colouring and production make such a quality hit...

Lets bring some of the lesser character to the forefront for once, Sunstreaker, Trailbreaker, Gears, Skywarp, Deluxe insecticons, Windcharger, Skids, Roadbuster, Whirl and, Huffer. Or how about the ones that were once prominient characters in the cartoons but basically disappeared like Hound, Mirage, Cliffjumper, Thundercracker, Brawn, Wheeljack, and Blue/silverstreak.

I think some of the TF's shouldn't get an update as far as their alts are concerned. I mean for the sake of vintage right? Like Jazz, a porshe...from 1984...would you still see those around? Sunstreaker and Sideswipe..their alts would work today only because someone could see these cars and be like whoa...check those out, I haven't seen a lamborghini that old in years.

For Bumblebee, it would make sense for an upgrade, Ironhide and Ratchet...you know what I mean?

They did, and were replaced by spy satelites. The problem with satelites, though, is that they fly by in regular orbital periods. Once the people you're spying on figure this out, it's not too hard to throw a tarp over anything you want to keep secret.

Thus, SR-71s are still in service.

I'll agree with Ironhide and Ratchet, but Bumblebee? True, he could become a new Beetle and get away with it, but there still are plenty of old Beetles buzzing about the streets. How about this: Bumblebee starts as an old Beetle and becomes a new Beetle when he upgrades to Goldbug in seven or twelve years.

UGH. Chapter One. I had just managed to forget that the damn thing exists, thank you.

Isn't that almost what DW was doing with G1 too?

'Nother interview, this one conducted by KingMob:

http://www.seibertron.com/energonpub...ic.php?t=67514

Offers some background on IDW, and a bit on Chris Ryall's work on the Shaun of the Dead comic series.

Interesting TF excerpts:
Quote:
we’re gonna pack an awful lot into each issue. [...] I’m just not one for the whole idea of “decompression.” That word should maybe be switched with “meandering” in a lot of books that say they’re doing decompressed storylines.
Quote:
We’ve talked to Guido Guidi and James Raiz, among others, both of whom are doing some work for us now. With more to come.
Quote:
Transformers have been on Earth a lot longer than any human character in the books have been alive, so it seems to me that someone or other would’ve discovered them along the way. Tough to keep anything that size hidden forever… so I’m sure that certain people in various countries’ governments know of them, and have their own plans. They might even be working with them… and also working to discredit the average person who reports a sighting. But I’m sure there are Web sites and conspiracy sites out there that talk about these sightings… which is a small tease for something we’re going to drop on everyone between now and when the 0 issue launches.
Hmm... 'real' conspiracy spoof site? The interactive approach has certainly worked well for the recent BBC Doctor Who series...

Chapter One or tell new stories? What they did, in your opinion?

The best example of restarted stories, overall, is the Ultimate line (Marvel comics)

Unsure about "real" site and their cooperation, but the fact that governement have their own plan about TF, while this type of site speak about sighting, sound realistic .... sort of TF X Files .... could work, probably, "mantaining a Robot point of wiew" as i stated in various movie related discussion

Off-topic discussion about characters that died in the cartoon has been moved here. Please keep the discussion in this thread on topic, thank you.
