Re: Avengers : Endgame

I saw this yesterday too. I thought it was a big, flabby load of old arse. I tell you what; with this and the letdown of a Game of Thrones episode with the White Walker battle I really felt like a line had been drawn under CGI. I feel totally bored by it now, anything can happen and nothing is inter...

Re: The Transformers Partwork Discussion Thread.

Ah yeah, I always wanted the backstories about Telus and Rotorbolt and their mate that got fried. Them and the guys in the dead end like Wheezel; how did they end up like that, what kin of people were they like in the past etc. Telus and co hinted at this entire subculture of robots that we never kn...

Re: Can someone explain to me why so many people hate Michael Bay's Transformers movies?

Lately here in the UK they've been showing 'Dark of the Moon' on repeat. I turned on the subtitles with the most recent airing and it made the world of difference. There was so much babble that I wasn't comprehending until now. Sam is incredibly annoying, and its not a patch on the first film, but d...

Re: Massive bundle of IDW TF comics on Humble Bundle

Stacks of content here, the 'pay what you want' first tier contains the entire run of the Costa-era Transformers ongoing (which I've been wanting for ages but never sprang for). There's loads of odd stuff like Maximum Dinobots, and the rather impressive Megatron: Origin; which feels to me like the i...

Re: Lost Light - The End - SPOILERS

I also really recommend some of the Spotlight issues for good, one-off size stories. My favourites have been Spotlights: Shockwave, Metroplex, Soundwave and Jazz. If you’re happy with digital you can usually pick these up for 69p each on ComiXology! [Edit] Oh, and of course Chaos Theory, you must re...

Re: Lost Light - The End - SPOILERS

And yeah, like you say sales were apparently low. The number you cite seems to be no brilliant numbers. But it was only counting the physical sales. I don't know what digital sales were like.

Re: Lost Light - The End - SPOILERS

If you liked Last Stand of the Wreckers, then its worth reading the second and third part of that saga if you haven't already! The second part is called 'Sins of the Wreckers;, and the final part is 'Requiem of the Wreckers'. It fits nicely around the MTMTE/Lost Light saga (I'm assuming you've read ...

Re: Lost Light - The End - SPOILERS

Its kinda depressing though; for all the world-building, characterisation and densely interwoven plots it sold to the same five people who also bought RID. No matter how many articles sang MTMTE's praises it seemed to remain at the same number of physical sales for its run. You're producing gold to ...

Re: Lost Light - The End - SPOILERS

I guess you could try the new Transformers comic that's about to start (I believe it kicks off in the middle of March with an all new continuity). I love MTMTE, it feels like a pinnacle in TF storytelling so far and I don't feel too inclined to read further, unless the new series is stupendous of co...

Re: Just a stupid questions?

But why can Bumblebee explode into many pieces and not die? Do all Transformers have this ability? Frenzy kind of did in the first film. Bumblebee is brave though, I think that was the point; to appeal to Optimus' goodness with a show of bravery!

Re: 10 years!

Ten years ago is still four years after Prime's death in the '86 movie. I still remember watching the VHS tape thinking how 2005 was donkeys years away, and I'd be an adult then and stuff. Now here we are in the future, someone really has shot JR and some new pants is taking over the comic!

Now that it's all over is there a resource/page somewhere that consolidates Roberts answers to all the open questions? For example, I was desperate to find out more about Delta Magnus and the Primal Vanguard. And whether Magnus, Tarn, Skids and others all tied in somehow due to the music link. Did T...

I have to take back my words about the Sargeant Peppers album, really starting to like it now. And "Yay" for Gunships new album, really glad you like it. I've only heard the singles they've released off it so far, but it sounds very cool. I also really like what you said about Innuendo, Headlong and...

I saw a message on Twitter where he said that Instagram videos only stay online for a max of two days. So they’re going to arrange to upload the video to Youtube! I guess that’ll be happening over the coming week so they don’t lose steam.

I saw the one hour Instagram video James Roberts did the other day answering people’s lingering MTMTE/LL questions. I LOVED the reveal about Rewind 1 and what was to happen after Chromedome blew up the slow cell that Rewind was trapped in with Overlord. I loved the sick deviousness of Chromedome and...

I've been trying to get hold of them for ages. Given up on paper copies, will have to go digital for them. I last read bits of them about 22 years ago. Wish I'd have bought them then, except I'd never heard anything of the expanded universe at that point and they felt like an odd follow on from the ...

It might be worth checking out Lexicon . Its a site full of very good Transformers fanfic.

As far as I'm aware Lexicon is one of the mor...

Ooh, and didn’t Chromedome do some Mnemosurgery on Rewind waaaay back before the Lost Light left Cybertron in search of the Knights? That line Chromedome said to First Aid: “... he’s allergic to ultraviolet light”, which is the only thing that shows up needle marks in the neck. He also mentioned he ...

There was a game, possibly called 'Full Stasis' that two Autobots were playing in the Marvel UK comic. This was during the Thunderwing saga before Thunderwing, possessed by the Matrix, attacked the Ark. "Quark takes Vig; Full Stasis"! It was meant to be a Space-robot version of 'Checkmate', so yeah....
