I'm starving for G1 Transformers iPad game. Transformers Legends was okay but I don't like in-app purchases and it wasn't very realistic.

Is "Angry Birds Transformers" the best option.

I never played "Angry Birds". Why is it so popular?

I tried playing "Angry Birds Transformers" a few months ago but it was too hard. I couldn't keep up with everything that was going on, so I deleted it.

Is it worth try again? I heard that they have cool events where if you collect all the Combaticons you can form Bruticus. Is that true?

I like the Combaticons and Bruticus better ever since they kicked Devastator's butt and beat Shockwave to take over Cybertron.

Is Omega Supreme featured in the game as well?

The Speaker will recognise you impersonating Bruticus and decide if you did a good job. If you did, Bruticus appears. If you didn't, you get Abominus


Is Omega Supreme featured in the game as well? Yeah, but there's a bit of a snag. Its only his rocket mode so when you transform, you only get his hands. Looks like David Wise was right. Omega is a stupid transformer
Hope that helps!

Galvatron is a cool design.

I'd like to see a Megatron vs Galvatron epic battle in IDW.

I also like the Insecticons and thought it was a downgrade when they got changed into generic Sweeps.

Thank you for the info Red Dave Prime. May I call you friend?

According to the letter page of Marvel UK issue #285, External Forces!, Omega is tougher than a "block of triple-strength Durabylium Steel."

Are the Marvel UK Transformers comics as good as the US?

I'd say the Marvel UK TF comics are better than the US stories. They're certainly more visceral and do a lot more interesting things with the subject matter. Whilst Bob's work is solid and there are some real highlights during the 50 issues he wrote, he's often hamstrung by the demands of Hasbro and having to constantly feature the latest new toys in the stories he wrote.

The artwork in the UK comic is also streets ahead of the US book, it has to be said.

Someone said Galvatron was the main character in the Marvel UK run. That's cool.

It seems like the only singular character who has been able to carry their own book is Megatron via "All Hail Megatron". I read the first issue and the way the characters ar drawn is the spitting image of the G1 cartoon.

I'd like IDW to do more of that style of artwork.

Is the Japanese G1 worth watching?

Only if you're setting it on fire first.*

It's Skids actually, but it's a common mistake.

All Hail Megatron is not about Megatron. It's about what happens if Megatron "wins" and focusses on everybody.

Drift on the other hand has had loads of solo books. He's the bestest there is at what he does. And what he does is have solo books.

Its odd that drift has had so much love - spotlight and 2 minis - and yet is never written as a major character. Not even with AHM.

Japanese G1 gave a lot of love to Galvatron, Fortress Maximus, and Computron which is awesome.

Is Bumblebee a fan favorite because he's the smallest and weakest Transformer.

This is one of my favorite scenes in Transformers history:



And is the reason why I like Computron. He reminds me of Omega Supreme.

Has he made an appearance in IDW, or is he underwritten like Omega?

Dont think he has appeared - someone can correct me if I'm wrong but the Technobots are in Stormbringer and they pretty much get torn apart by Bludgeons guys. At that point, they would not have had the ability to combine into Computron.

Why do you think Computron has gotten such little love in the comics? He's a cool character, and he's a gestalt.

Who are the Wreckers? Are they the Junkions from the G1 cartoon?

Who's Jiaxhus? Who's Overlord? Who's Thunderwing?

Beachcomber made them all to kill Megatron.

You're at your best when the goin' gets rough
You've been put to the test, but it's never enough!

You got the touch
You got the power

When all hell's breakin' loose
You'll be riding the eye of the storm

You got the heart
You got the motion

"Autobots, transform and roll out!"

And you never get hit when your back's to the wall
Gonna fight to the end and you're takin' it all!

"I knew you had potential kid!"

Know that when things get too tough
You got the touch

"Let this mark the end of the Cybertronian wars as we move forward to a new age of peace and happiness."

"Till all are One!"
