As much as i like digital painted artwork for Transformers, i still prefer EJ Su's art in Spotlight Sideswipe than Livio Ramondelli. His coloring is awesome, very dark and edgy, but his bots tend to look a bit too "square" and disproportionate. I know some people are gonna slap me on for this but so...

A great story wasted on god horrid art. Everyone looks like balloon mannequins. And the writing.........Can anyone confirm that this is indeed Dan Abnett doing the writing? The same Abnett who also wrote War of Kings, Thanos Imperative and Nova for Marvel, Warhammer 40k, etc? He can do epic Cosmic s...

NO!!! I totally missed out on the variant cover (the remake of the Marvel TF issue 1 cover). I liked how the story handled his "Death" more in a symbolical way than another actual death. Its something fresh IMO cos really, if it ended with Optimus dying once again the impact would have benn totally ...

RE: DW masters, they might be using scans. Just because the rights reverted to Hasbro when DW folded doesn't necessarily mean negatives and digital masters have been handed over, and I doubt Hasbro or IDW give enough of a **** to physically seize them if they are still with Pat and Roger or whateve...

I dunno - Dead End and Wildrider still knocked the shit out of Rodimus, let's not forget. In fact, let's just say that again - Dead End and Wildrider still knocked the shit out of Rodimus. Cartoon Magnus was pretty hard, regularly matching Galvatron in Season 3 despite not having the Matrix or a pl...

As much as i love G1, i'd say my favorite Megatron voice has to go to David Kaye. But only his Beast Wars Megatron. I tend to prefer my bad guys as calm, calculating, menacing beings. Armada/Energon Megatron was less calm, a but too "shouty". Frank Welker is a talented actor but his megatron just so...

Any news if subsequent Transformers Classics (US) will carry the same (or more) extras as those featured in the titan tpbs??? There were story outlines, character info, even excerpts of scripts in those. To be honest i was hoping for a COMPLETE Transformers UK collection. Meaning that instead of rep...

The reprint of Armada was definitely a bit shoddy, like poor quality scans with at least one bad misprint on one page that wasn't on the original issue. The second Classic UK book also manages to print a couple of pages out of order, alongside some fairly overt typos in the making of sections. So t...

Question on IDW's reprints (Dreamwave, Marvel UK etC)

I've recently purchased a bunch of books - Transformers Armada 1-3 - Transformers Generation 1 vol 1 and 2 - Transformers: Best of UK Omnibus - Transformers War Within Omnibus They came cheap but im starting to suspect i was sold defective products. The "Best of UK" omnibus had serious color issues....

I'm with Blackjack on this. I'd pay good money to see a deluxe hardcover collecting all 12 G2 comics plus the "Alignment" text story. GOOD MONEY I'm real glad i had the complete Titan books collection of Marvel G1, although it cost a bomb in comparison. The IDW ones have always had some form of impe...

I only picked up the original Infestation series because i was a fan of the "Zombies Vs Robots" series.

This new one has nothing to do with ZVR right?

going back to AHM Its kinda good in a "cartoon" sense. IMO, if fits in as a more badass reimagining of the G1 cartoon. But thats the problem right there. There isnt the same amount of depth or characterisations as the previous comics. Some of the dialogue also feels a little bit.......off. I cant qu...

hi everyone. My first post. LOVED Last Stand of the Wreckers and yes i double dipped even though i still have the tpb. I'm sucker for extras, especially extras on my favorite comic stories. Altough i was disappointed that they left out the initial story plans. I heard(from tfwiki) that Roberts and R...
