I guess I'm crossing my fingers I'll get a good one. I got basically the only bad Carnifex in the lot, it seems (broken backpack slider) so maybe my luck will swing the other way with Anubis?

You got one already? Cor blimey. Mine's been "awaiting fulfillment" since last Saturday at PSX.

I heard about filing down the weapons' peg. Also heard speculation that the chainsaw was meant to double as an attachment for Carnifex, but that it doesn't fit him.

I rather like it, actually. Not canonical at all--we still need a Marvel Legend DH for that--but it's too much fun for me to pass up a transforming DH, even at third party prices.

MMC's Death's Head comic, yes?

MMC is tempting the Mouse now. A flagrant Death's-Head-hunts-down-Lockdown (for Tarn!!) pack-in comic.

Finished it. Well. That was... mostly only worth it for the scene where Chromedome tosses Prowl off a cliff. And even then it's another one of Barber's "ehh, this happens" leaps. Domey injected Prowl & that's how Bombshell could take advantage of his brain? How does one lead to the other? Barber lea...

Rereading Dark Cybertron

Finally broke down and got the hardcover to complete my MTMTE run in trade. About halfway through. Now I can appreciate most of the small bits written by Roberts--the lovely sequence where the Rodpod flies through Metroplex's guts is fun, and the LL crew's interactions are mostly on point. But it se...

The MMC Azalea pack-in comic is a Spotlight: Arcee fanfix

It's hilariously bad, yet no worse really than SL Arcee. Arcee (Azalea) is in the middle of killing Jhiaxus (Psyaxus)--seriously, there's very little attempt made to disguise the IDW-ness of this--and then something explodes for some damn reason. Topspin & Twin Twist show up and decide to try jump-s...

So I am reading the trade, and have switched from "overall a good story" to feeling like Nick failed as a storyteller...

Def going to get most of MMC's IDW offerings here. Whirl, Tarn, (eventual) Rodimus, Death's Head, Roadbuster, maybe even the Lockdown.

I mean, I might have to sell my house, but it's all good.

I think A Rage In Heaven! was published in August 94, so this would have been some of his first genuinely post-Transformers, no, seriously-the-Transformers-are-gone work.

It was fun, if a bit weird and gonzo. Simon was obviously itching to write Magneto, so good that he got his chance.

What If, v.2, #64, by Furman & Senior

Apparently Simon Furman and Geoff Senior did an issue of What If where every Marvel hero wore an Iron Man suit? Anyone have it? Worth tracking down? It's most of the way down this page.

GASP. Must hear.

I would really love to see Simon and Alex Milne do a memoir comic about their time with Dreamwave.

I'd be surprised if he didn't get nuggets of information like "I probably won't be using the Dinobots for six months so feel free to put them all in comas". So, I'd have to go diving for it, but I believe James confirmed that this very conversation did take place in one of his notes for Classics UK...

1) god damn it, Dalek, you're going to make me buy Classics UK after I convinced myself the Titan reprints were enough 2) will read the stories and get back to you, but as I said on The Big Conversation, er, Facebook, I'd sooner believe that Furman was just being a little overworked & inconsistent (...
