Red face So I got that anime Inferno's in...

It's pretty awful but the guy's quite unmistakable, with a fairly nice toy-based character model. The best bit is that when he does turn up he spends most of his time in robot mode and it's just a bit weird that he has a fire truck cab for a chest but he's just a robot until five minutes from the end, when he turns into a fire truck even if it makes no sense whatsoever for him to do so and it's set in the future. It's like the animators were playing with the toy and had 90% of the film done when one of them worked out that it turned into a fire truck and just decided to throw it in.

This isn't even the only one of these "movies" that are just a mashup of random character models, is it? I remember seeing a bit of one that was done by Gunfrey Ho's company with an ident that looks like a crappy version of the Columbia one with music that liberally borrows (read: just flat out copy&pastes) music from Star Wars. Joseph Lai (whose name is on the credits here) was his partner in crime, too.

They're good for at least one thing, you can use them to figure out how much of a super robot fan you are by the amount of knocked off animation models you can recognize. Even when something isn't as blatant a copy as Inferno, it's probably either a recolour or at least an amalgamation of several. Pretty sure Inferno isn't the only Transformer (or at least a Diaclone) to make it into these productions.

When you die, we're gonna take that quote out of context and put it everywhere.

Still alive, I'm just bad at keeping up with forums.
You can read my articles and reviews at but I wouldn't bother if I were you.
