Doesn't look like there's a general intro thread anymore. Figured this is as good a place to start.

What's your handle, stranger?
Inaction Master. I used to frequent Seibertron and was a mod on Cybertron's Core under the terribly imaginative title of "darkchan08". Teenage me, eat your heart out.

Come here often?
I've been something of a lurker - mostly the comic discussion forums and toy reviews as of late.

Where have you been all my life?
Doing school stuff, finishing that whole formal education malarkey and what not.

What brings you here?
Used to be back in the day that I could speak with like-minded folk about our mutual obsession with transforming robots. Lately I've missed that and rather like the casual vibe here.

How you doin' [/joey]?
Can't complain. Well I could, but whatever.

Date o' birth?
Who's asking?

How tall are ya?
5' 11"

Hair colour?
Natural brunette right here.

Eye colour?
They be green with envy.

You on a PC or a Mac?

Mac, but I have a PC for video games and stuff.

Elvis or the Beatles?
I like me some Beatles. Having said that... Hail to the king, baby.

Last album you bought?
S&M by Metallica

Was it any good?
Well, it's not St. Anger, so that's a plus.

All time fave album?
Discovery by Daft Punk

Pets?
One half of the family has a dog and a cat; the other dog. I'd say I'd lean to being more a cat person, but I appreciate canines.

Fave colour?
White. Because I can then pretty it up with more color.

Fave food?
Pizza.

Favourite drink?
Coca-Cola.

What song are you listening to / humming right now?
The Hounds by the Protomen

Fave sport/hobby?
Drawing mostly, bit of writing if I feel like it.

Read any good books lately?

A Game of Thrones. I've sworn off seeing the show 'til I read through the book.

All time fave book?
The Invisible Man.

Favourite film?
Frankenstein Conquers the World.

Favourite TV show?
The Venture Bros. (This week's past episode still has me... Wow. Just wow.)

CD or vinyl?
Vinyl's a bit before my time.

Smoke?
Where?!

Bite your nails?
I can stop anytime I feel like it, mom!

Am I boring you?
Yes, don't take it personally though.

It's TFA's round. What are you having?

Dish water! And put it in a dirty glass!

Fountain pen or ballpoint?

I'd say ink and quill, but even I'm not that fancy. Ballpoint.

Been to many foreign countries?
Does deportation count?

Want to go to any?
I've always wanted to visit Japan at least once.

Breakfast television or early morning radio?

Mid-morning YouTube browsing.

Multilingual?
I speak for the trees, but I can't understand 'em.

"Pink, I need you to be cool. Are you cool?"

Hell no, it's hot as hell 'round here.

Touch-type or hit-and-hope?
I have been clocked at doing about sixty words per minute, but even I make mistakes.

What's on your computer desk?
Ninja Turtles action figures.

McDonalds or Burger King?
I ain't picky, but I usually go McDonalds.

Got your own webspace?

I've got a Facebook page, but that's about it.

What are you doing tonight, wanna go catch a movie?
You ain't gettin' any, if that's what you're thinking.

Do you smell what The Rock is cooking?
Cookies? Is it cookies? I hope it's cookies.

Do you feel in anyway violated by the questions asked?
Yes.


Transformers Stuff...

Fave Characters?
I'm a major Dinobots fan, so Grimlock of course. Also Shockwave, Soundwave, Scorponok, Thunderwing, Impactor, Wheeljack, Cliffjumper... to name a few.

Fave continuity/canonical arc (cartoon, comic, G2, BW, BM, RiD, etc)?
I'd say that I do enjoy the franchise on the whole (save the films for some obvious reason), but I am something a G1 enthusiast. Beast Wars and Animated of course. Prime to some degree as well. RiD is a guilty pleasure.

Fave episode?
War of the Dinobots. Earliest episode I remember seeing as a kid and the gateway story.

Least fave episode?

To be perfectly honest... the Return of Optimus Prime. I understand the reasoning behind why it was done, but with that comes the madness-virus-spore and just falls apart from there to Prime saving the day because. Should've let him rest after Dark Awakening.

Like the original Movie?

There are fans that DON'T like the original movie?

Favourite comic arc?
Last Stand of the Wreckers, Target: 2006 and City of Fear come to mind. Really, anything Wreckers related.

FIRRIB or RIRFIB?

Frenzy is orange, Rumble is green. 'Nuff said.

Brawn - he's dead, right?
'Course he's not dead, haven't you seen Carnage in C-Minor?

Optimus or Rodimus?

Rodimus. No disrespect to Op, but I find the chosen one to make for some more entertaining stories just for being the imperfect, rough-around-the-edges Prime that he is. Again, part of the reason for my dislike of the season three finale.

Prime or Primal?
Primal Prime. Trukk-THEN-Munkey!

Which cartoon origin of the Constructicons do you buy?
The one where they're brought to life by AllSpark fragments and spontaneously affect New Jersey accents.

Can the Autobots fly?
Let's see here... Jetfire, the Dinobots, the Aerialbots, Blades, Scattershot, Strafe, the Triplechangers, Whirl, Omega Supreme, Skylynx, Sideswipe with a jetpack...

Last toy you bought?
Beast Hunters Legion Class Twinstrike

Most wanted toy?
Masterpiece Grimlock

Most favoured faction?
Dinobots. 'Nuff said.

Cel animation or CGI?
CGI. I've sat through enough of Energon and Cybertron, thanks.

Seen any Japanese shows? Like 'em?
I've seen a handful of the 80s series and Beast Wars II. RiD is a guilty pleasure. Also the Brave super-robot series if that counts.

Bought any of the new comics? What d'ya think of them?

More than Meets the Eye has been the best Transformers comic I've read in years.

Enjoy the new movie / series?
While I did enjoy the first movie for what it was and can appreciate aspects of the series, I wouldn't say I'm a fan. RotF was perhaps one of the worst movies I've seen period and DotM didn't fare much better in my eyes.


And our tie-breaker...

In five hundred lines or less, tell us anything else you'd like to add about yourself...

I'll be honest, sometimes my interest in my many fandoms kind of veers in-and-out at times, so I might disappear for weeks on end. Other than that, I'm just looking to chat it up with folk and have myself a good time. Thanks for having me.

General nosey intrusive stuff...

What's your handle, stranger?

Blast Cannon. In real life people call me Luke.

Come here often?

Not at all. I plan on changing that.

Where have you been all my life?

Manchester via Bangor, North Wales for university. Yes, it was as awful as it sounds. Well earned title of 'students with the most sexual partners per person' at that university though. Swings and roundabouts, I guess.

What brings you here?

Complete lack of sense of humour elsewhere.

How you doin' [/joey]?

I bloody hate Friends. Shite.

Date o' birth?

May, 1987.

How tall are ya?

6'4. So tall.

Hair colour?

Short, brown hair with greying sides and an odd patch of silver hair at the front which actually makes it look like a bird has taken a well aimed shit on me. I've also been told that it looks deliberate so who knows, maybe it's stylish?

Eye colour?

Green.

You on a PC or a Mac?

PC.

Elvis or the Beatles?

The Beatles any day of the week.

Last album you bought?

Kodaline - Brand New Day.

Was it any good?

Yes.

All time fave album?

I'm honestly not all that much into music. Oasis - Definitely Maybe.

Pets?

I used to have a cat called Amber.

Fave colour?

Blue.

Fave food?

I bloody love stir fry. And sausages. But not at the same time.

Favourite drink?

Can't go wrong with a bit of Southern Comfort. Or a Stella. Then I go home and knock out my girlfriend.

What song are you listening to / humming right now?

None.

Fave sport/hobby?

Football. I'm a season ticket holder at God's own football team, Manchester City FC.

Read any good books lately?

Coincidentally I've just finished reading 'Five People You Meet in Heaven' by Mitch Albom this evening. It had a very powerful and comforting message about faith, religion and the afterlife. I'm a massive atheist (it hasn't changed my opinion, not that it ever tried to) and I did enjoy and recommend it thoroughly.

All time fave book?

The Hobbit.

Favourite film?

The Princess Bride.

Favourite TV show?

Either Doctor Who or Game of Thrones.

CD or vinyl?

Not arsed about either.

Smoke?

Never.

Bite your nails?

I pick AND bite them.

Am I boring you?

I was bored to begin with.

It's TFA's round. What are you having?

Southern Comfort and Coke or a pint of Stella.

Fountain pen or ballpoint?

Ballpoint for the sake of ease.

Been to many foreign countries?

A few. Including America. Los Angeles is a shit hole so don't bother would be my knowing advice.

Want to go to any?

I've never been to Germany.

Breakfast television or early morning radio?

Radio. Five Live.

Multilingual?

Not quite.

"Pink, I need you to be cool. Are you cool?"

Just no.

Touch-type or hit-and-hope?

Touch type.

What's on your computer desk?

At work, all kinds of shit. Kid's work. Mark book. Correspondence. Rubbish. Crumbs.

McDonalds or Burger King?

McDonalds.

Got your own webspace?

Nope.

What are you doing tonight, wanna go catch a movie?

It's a little late but that might mean the cinema is empty and I'm a massive slut, so why not? I put out.

Do you smell what The Rock is cooking?

No.

Do you feel in anyway violated by the questions asked?

Nope.

Transformers Stuff...

Fave Characters?


Sixshot, the Dinobots and Wheeljack.

Fave continuity/canonical arc (cartoon, comic, G2, BW, BM, RiD, etc)?

G1 cartoon, IDW

Fave episode?

Desertion of the Dinobots. I loved any episode which was set on Cybertron and these episodes in particular allowed us to see parts that we hadn't explored before.

Least fave episode?

Carnage in C-Minor. Urgh.

Like the original Movie?

Is that even a question?

Favourite comic arc?

From the old Marvel comics I would probably say 'Space Pirates' or 'Target: 2006'. From the recent run it has to be 'Last Stand of the Wreckers' because I'm a massive sheep. I also really enjoyed Spotlight: Ironhide simply because of insane Alpha Trion.

FIRRIB or RIRFIB?

FIRRIB.

Brawn - he's dead, right?

Shh, he's just sleeping.

Optimus or Rodimus?

Optimus. He Who Shall Not Be Named was a joke of a leader.

Prime or Primal?

Prime.

Which cartoon origin of the Constructicons do you buy?

The Secret of Omega Supreme is the logical explanation, considering new Transformers require Vector Sigma to 'give them life' and in 'Heavy Metal War' they hadn't even made it back to Cybertron at that point. Or am I missing something?

Can the Autobots fly?

No, damnit.

Last toy you bought?

Transformer? A G1 Slag from Ebay.

Most wanted toy?

Masterpiece Grimlock. Damn lack of funds at the time of release.

Most favoured faction?

Autobots.

Cel animation or CGI?

Cel animation.

Seen any Japanese shows? Like 'em?

No.

Bought any of the new comics? What d'ya think of them?

I've really enjoyed them so far, including the Regeneration One series.

Enjoy the new movie / series?

No.

And our tie-breaker...

In five hundred lines or less, tell us anything else you'd like to add about yourself...


Erm, hello. It's nearly 11pm at the start of this paragraph and the reason why I did this was A) I am exceptionally bored and B) I had noticed people hadn't responded for quite some time and felt this thread had suffered the ignominy of being ignored for too long. I do have a very sarcastic and dry sense of humour, something that is generally looked down upon in certain other forums. However I am looking forward to posting here and getting to know a few of you. I'm pleased to find that there are a lot more UK based members here so perhaps I'll see some of you at the conventions I occasionally frequent!
