Ooh, more than meets the eye! One thing it has taught me though, is I definitely need to go back and re-read the more recent episodes. I tend to always read up to Remain in Light, then the Megatron stuff pre-Slaughterhouse, and The Dying of the Light. I've hardly given other issues much of a re-read...

I just listened to the James Roberts interview from a few episodes ago. A really brilliant Q&A. He had great things to say, and lots of excellent questions put his way, too. And funny; his quip about Dalek being on the whisky, and in turn Dalek's affection for Tom Jones & Billy Joel :D

I love the way Shockwave had to get himself out of that situation. I especially like little extra details that feature every now and then; like Springer's eyes described as Matrix Blue in the Zero Point text story, or here, where Tarn describes Shockwave's spark as being so old: "... Little more tha...

I'm playing Zelda: A Link Between Worlds on the 2DS. Its the SNES Zelda map with spruced up graphics, sound, gameplay and animation and its really beautiful. Full of little touches. I'm also playing Pocket Card Jockey, by Gamefreak, the makers of Pokemon. Its hideously addictive; a mix of horse raci...

Wow, that was a superb issue. There’s never been a bad Scavengers story has there? Perhaps because they’re so tightly confined to an issue or two, they have to move fast and the banter is usually great. Very surprised by the ending, but surely there’s a trick to what we’ve seen? Its brilliantly brut...

Well, the arc isn’t over yet. Fangry appears to be a good one for bearing grudges and he may get his comeuppance on Max in a later episode! “Ah, I remember when I got my arms and legs torn off, eyes smashed in and invasive needles drilled into every part of my brain. Best three years of my life. Mad...

Ah, oh well. I had hope for a little while being a Skids fan! I like to think Fangry is a fair threat, only Fort Max is not like most people (Prowl referred to him as something akin to a Phase Sixer on one of his good days). With his zero tolerance/maximum takedown approach, which I put down to Max’...

Just noticed on the second page that Fort Max is standing in front of Skids’ tombstone, but there is no statue of Skids standing on the tombstone. Is this significant? Does it mean in Necroworld speak that he’s not actually dead?

That was one hell of an issue. I've been waiting for years for the Ten revelation! But this post is more directed toward Mr Dalek: Hey man, I love your photos on Twitter with the talking Transformers (the one's in celebration of the run up to 300). Also, the pic of your tablet showing the cover of a...

God bless us, everyone. :smokin: Dave, I've not seen it, but I hope its just a good ol' bit of mindless fun. I enjoyed Age of Extinction. Today I saw a bit of the Transformers Titans Return CG cartoon. I never knew it existed. Really nice animation, but all the faces are lifeless. The Beast Wars CG ...

Yeah, and I was trying to link to that brilliant Graham Thompson fanfic for anyone interested. I think it was called Killshot, about Blaster and Ultra Magnus (among others), but I didn't have much luck finding it.

Ha, no way. That's awesome. I love Scrounge from the Smelting Pool saga, they've done a good job here. I'd love to see his original wheel mode, but this is a cool change-up!

He's psychosomatic (that boy needs therapy)! Wow, he's gone too far, but I love him shooting Thunderclash repeatedly in the head and calling him a glorified trophy cabinet! I can still see Getaway's side from a wonky point of view. Megatron has killed almost everyone these people know, loved, fought...

I took a break from work today to have lunch with my son while my wife was at her staff Christmas party. He played with the buggy mode like nobody's business, like it was just a car. Definitely doesn't strike as a TF right away. The big wheels make him super fun to scoot around. Wow, yeah I remembe...

I love G1 Beachcomber's toy , MagicRat's review is spot on! Maybe its a minibot thing in general, but they're so playable, and as simple as Beachcomber's transformation is, I think its the apex of neat. Its clean, the detail on the buggy is pretty high and as an actual toy he doesn't look immediatel...

Black Friday sale at Comixology.

It seems like there's some good deals at Comixology for Black Friday. I've just ordered Watchmen (some sort of bog-standard edition) for £2.99. I've barely ventured outside of hardcopy TF comics, but since getting an iPhone, the Comixology app and digital copies of Chaos Theory (which present really...

After about 10 years I watched Jumper again. You know what pisses me off? The cocky pseudo-smart piano riff that plays whenever the film is particularly happy with itself. Like it thinks its Oceans 11. I like the look of the film, and Billy Elliot is okay in it, I like how he got to keep his natural...

The Aerialbots look fantastic, that one of Air Raid at the top of this page especially. I've always wished they could big up the Aerialbots to give them Seeker level detail and articulation. However, I'm a bit bothered that none of them seem to be acknowledging Slingshot. I know he was the nonce of ...

Its already available? that was fast. Very happy for the 2-disc edition as well, which they haven't bothered with since Revenge of the Fallen (at least in the UK). I stopped watching the TF films at the cinema with Dark of the Moon, but I enjoy them all massively on a home TV. Looking forward to get...

This feels old school MTMTE again! Getaway is doing a Ramsay Bolton. He really is a sick puppy. The issue felt very irksome the moment I realised what was really going on, and I love the storyline no matter how disgusting it is. The 'teethmarks' comment keeps playing on my mind and I guess that will...
