00 is the only one I've noticed it in. Haven't watched SEED yet though. Well aside from Loran in Turn A but that was on purpose. I'm pretty sure that I heard somewhere that Loran was supposed to be female but that Bandai stepped in and said that there had to be a male lead in the series so Tomino m...

Everyone involved saying the two new books were a fresh jumping on point that didn't require prior knowledge to be enjoyed. Large chunks of this make no sense unless you've read Revelation and Chaos. Its a marketing gimmick. Make a "fresh jumping on point" to get new readers, then once those reader...

I think some of it was the gimmick of the first issue of IDW's Godzilla: Kingdom of Monsters #1 (I think that was the title) if that store ordered a ton of copies then IDW would send them a number of varients showing Godzilla's foot smashing the store. That bought them a lot of LCS loyality. oh Dro...

I took a long break from Gundam but have now started watching 00. I'm only 3 episodes in but it's ok. Female looking males is a little disturbing and confusing but that's minor I suppose. :) Lol, I thought female looking males were a staple of AU Gundam series since Wing. Though Seed and 00 have it...

On the other hand though, I thought Chaos was supposed to have ended all the old business so plot threads like Monstructor getting picked up when, frankly, I don't think anyone cared is a bit odd. Especially when the book has more than enough dangling threads of its own to deal with. What made you ...

SPOILERS, obviously... Megatron was upgraded over the course of three years, but upgraded may be a stretch as it is an entirely new body, built on the asteroid the decepticons were stranded on. No clue as to HOW he got that strong, but he has a space bridge portal inside him and can combine with hi...

Red Dave, Maybe you should get a poll going. Revelations DD and Sideswipe was just typical Furman (same with Max Dino's last issues). Cramming wayy to much into too little. Like the direct opposite of Costa who draws out too little into too long. And I'd agree that the Monstorbots was just wanting t...

I always felt that Magnus should have been used in place of Rodimus, given that he is the one chasing Scorponok. And I'd agree that the Monstorbots was just wanting to have the cake and eating it writing. They really didnt serve a purpose. Still, I think IDW has released far, far worse mini series ...

It was a four part story with 7 and 8 being a pair one-offs. and that 4 parter felt like it could have been done in 2. Megatron returns and is upgraded like never before. Ok, i may have missed out something and i cant be bother to re-read. But HOW is Megatron almost at Thunderwing level of power by...

Yeah, I'm liking that too. I wonder with the return of transformers from different evolutionary paths will we see a lot more of beast war/ machine characters, maybe not exactly like they were but with a new spin? Be very interesting if we had Beast Wars Megatron show up or maybe Gigatron :) Of cour...

"We hate Grimlock, We're friends with Grimlock. Swoops going, Now he's back". There's much angst between the dinobots, that's dragged out over five issues, over not much. One of them goes, the others fight, he comes back on his own. Repeat and change minor details x 5. I always interpreted this as ...

Maximum Dinobots. Was it really that bad??

Topic says it all. I thought Max Dino was pretty decently recieved (judging from other forums). Not as good as LSOTW but at least better than AHM. Only here do i see it taking some flak. Not that i want to defend it, but maybe im missing something. The only thing bad about it was 2 points - The arti...

So, as part of my irregular inspired by the comics being good again catching up on the stuff I missed I've just read the first six issues of the ongoing, Bumblebee and Spotlight: Prowl. The real surprise was that none of it was as bad as I was expecting. Not in any way especially good or memorable ...

Yeh, you can say "similar to Last Stand of the Wreckers" but the truth is people liked that one. I think even hardcore Furmanites found Maximum Dinobots to be at best disappointing. TBH, it looks more like "Dinobot Month" is a 'Hey, both these comics have Dinobots in, why the Hell not?' thing. It's...

All the Decepticons we've seen so far have been self interested power hungry dicks or nutters who joined so they could carry a big gun and blow shit up. You think ALL soldiers join up with the intention to protect their nation? Some just wanna blow stuff up. IMO that gives a very decent explanation...

No re-release of a Maximum Dinobots deluxe hardcover (similar to LAst stand of the wReckers)?

1) No. Morally clear as far as most people are concerned, but it's still copyright infringement. The ROMs/cartridge thing isn't valid either -- provided you have permission to copy them you can do it yourself but it's still not legally okay to just download. 2) Locked AFAIK, with an emphasis on vie...
