Such an awesome video!

One of the most fun videos I've ever seen. So much energy, so much sugar! This is kind of how I want MTMTE/Lost Light to end!

Infinity War... that sounds like that Simpsons skit when Lionel Hutz tried to sue the makers of The Neverending Story.

It'll go well with my bracelet though.

Can you still get the TF backup strips online?

I was looking for Machine Man 2020 the other day on Comixology, but I didn't have any luck. Is it possible to get it digitally anywhere? Maybe it was called 'The Iron Man of 2020'. Also mildly interested in the Rocket Racoon backup strip, definitely not Planet Terry. I just loved the artwork of that...

...I want Peter Cullen to be given more lines than "I am Optimus Prime!". Yeah, he said that line three times in TLK. I agree with you in that I like these last two films. In order of best to worst I'd rank them: 1) The 2007 movie 2) The Last Knight 3) Age of Extinction 4) Revenge of the Fallen 5) ...

You're right. I'm just looking at Issue 19 now. Tyrest is explaining to Minimus Ambus (Page 8, panel 3) and says: The Legislators don't think like we do. They don't really 'think' at all. I built them to act... I was wrong about Swerve as well. When the Legislators came aboard the Lost Light, they i...

Ah ok. There was a comment Tyrest specifically made to someone, it could've been Pharma or Getaway. He was referring to the Legislators being simple rule following programs, which was why they only bark the name of the infringement "1984" etc. Interestingly, when that one Legislator came for Swerve'...

Is Tyrest & his puppetmaster behind this? Ten has ascended, but Legislators never had sparks? Also, he's got his proper left arm back and all injuries recovered. Is it more a Limbo dream state like in the Marvel comics? Where's Wheelarch? and Dominus Ambus? (maybe he'll show up next issue if Rewind ...

Birthday greetings to Mr. TF Archive. The man, the myth, the Gobot. Salutes aplenty for giving us the Netspace to talk toys, comics, video games, films and generally never growing up for all this time.

May you never die. Trukk not munkey.:deadhorse:

Public Service Broadcasting ‘The Race For Space’ (2015) Public Service Broadcasting take audio recordings from the BBC archives, usually of a particular time or event and set them to music. I was hooked when I saw the video for ‘Go’ on BBC Breakfast News one morning. Then I heard it on the radio a ...

Back to the reviews!

Belle and Sebastian ‘If You’re Feeling Sinister’ (1996) God, what a stupid name for a band! That’s what I always thought, and I dismissed them from that point on. In the intervening years I remember always whistling the end theme to Channel 4’s ‘Teachers’ and wondering who did it. When I found out ...

Oh yeah, the Guinness advert: "Like tick follows tock like tick follows tock". That just popped into my head after all these years. Total Recall (and that may even include the Colin Farrell version).

Wow, you’re a proper NIN fan! Perhaps my only claim to fame is that I read about them in a computer magazine back in ’88, by a guy who was into them, Fields of the Nephilim, Skinny Puppy and Front 242. And yeah, that Vampire Weekend is probably the most useless CD I’ve ever bought! Carole King ‘Tape...

Nine Inch Nails 'The Downward Spiral' (1994) The first time a roommate played me 'Closer' I was utterly enthralled. Again that harsh, pulsing beat, the throbbing industrial techno-metal and the brutal chorus. Trent is so eloquent. Sure enough 21 years later I find the album for 50p in a British Hea...

Olafur Arnalds 'For Now I Am Winter' (2013) Plinky-plonky piano full of feeling and darkness that makes me wish I could be deep and brooding, sat before a grand piano whilst it snows out the window, I'm wearing a thick turtleneck jumper, sporting designer stubble and a cat is staring at me with see...

Ouch! If true that really sucks. MTMTE has been a great constant over the last half-dozen years, its monthly turnaround makes it feel half that! I'm glad James has been the writer all this time, and no IDW muppet has come in and messed with his stories... you know, other than the stupid crossovers a...

I've seen murmurings around that Lost Light may be winding down. No idea if this is true, but will there be enough time to resolve all the things that are hanging and seemingly of little importance? - As Unicron (the poster) mentioned in one thread; Ore poofed back to Cybertron with the Metrotitan. ...
