Re: Transformers (2019-?) #1 [SPOILERS]

So it looks like, as it's what has just been promoted on Twitter and it's all that's showing up for pre-order on Amazon, the series isn't being collected in average six issue paperbacks, but (for the first one at least, a second is also up for pre-order, but not sure of the contents there) 12 issue ...

Re: I have a few questions I want to ask

Yeah, ratings basically. As well loved as it is now, the failure of the film (and in particular how the series 3 assumes everyone has seen the film and loved it) kicked the legs out from under the whole thing. Something short to pimp out the 87 toys was probably pushed for by Hasbro. And we do know ...

Re: International shipping from/to the USA about to get more expensive

On the plus side for Americans, there's not going to be much worth buying from the UK soon (apart from the NHS, amirite?).

Re: Latest Music Purchases.

What's the Story Morning Glory on vinyl. Which apparently has one more song on it than the original CD, and in turn came with a download with 30 bonus tracks as well. I guess Oasis aren't cool any more, there was much "Really?" when I said I'd gotten it on Twitter, but, speaking as someone who didn'...

Re: NEWEST ACQUISITIONS!

Unpacked my final TFN purchase this week as the sticker sheet was missing so I waited on reprolables... Encore Devastator! Actually really liked this bad boy. The individual robots were all good fun (I think Mixmaster was the weakest, felt like you just stood him up) and the combination was more int...

Re: NEWEST ACQUISITIONS!

I never did my TFN stuff... MMC Whirl: Hadn't expected to like this one so much, just a really nice sturdy toy that actually feels like it could be released as a Transformer. Nickle and the Pet: Nickle was more fiddly than I expected and it's a shame the Pet is such a big boy, but overall a nice lit...

Re: Some thoughts on the Marvel TF comics

posting in haste on the way to the chippie (I really need to get on the PC more often than when I'm doing Transformation, makes for easier replies but it's always so rushed...). I think it's fair to say that we're more in an echo chamber here than Twitter, where we're 95% white old guy fans. The gis...

Re: TF Nation 2019

No yet, the stickers weren't in the box, and he's a bit green without them. So once reprolabbles arrive I'll be having a crack.

No instructions either, so hopefully he's a simple lad.

Signed TFNation 2019 Charity Prints.

As with last year, I've decided to do something (hopefully) positive in the post TFN comedown, in this case a blind auction of a set of the charity prints, signed by all the guests in attendance. Full details in this video: 504sia3DhhY As well as the ways of getting in touch mentioned there, you can...

Re: TF Nation 2019

Can't believe Skyquake came to TFN without telling anyone so he could sneak up on folk unawares.

Sorry to miss you (again) Prowl.

Re: Some thoughts on the Marvel TF comics

At last I have inspired someone in a good way! Furam's dialogue patterns (as opposed to the Furmanisms we all knew) really stand out in everything he did after Marvel where it fell even more into stock. The worst offenders being his IDW Bay comics where literally no one talks like a living person ev...

Kylie's new greatest hits on LP! Though amusingly for something promoted as the definitive collection, there's an extra 22 songs (or just over twice as many) on the download that comes with it. Lots of great, fun cheery pop and, as much as I like the more sophisticated stuff, you can't beat a bit of...

Re: Dalek and Warcry's Endless Star Trek Thread

just realised that the problem with Frakes coming back is, now he's an internet meme in his own right, they can't have Riker say yes, no or ask a question.

Re: The Transformers Partwork Discussion Thread.

It's been announced the series is extended to issue 100!

Certainly the rest of LL/OP/Unicron, plus implied G2 and the Hasbro Shared Universe crossover stuff.

I wouldn't be surprised if it ends on a couple of Ruckley volumes as well.
