So far in the "Classics" vein (I'm not enough of a toy nut to know the difference in lines) I've got Prowl, Starscream, RtS Bumblebee and Sunstreaker. I think I'm looking more at the Pre-TFTM characters, so would love to get my hands on Sideswipe, Jazz, Wheeljack and Red Alert... Got my eyes on Silv...

So what's the Reveal The Shield jazz about? Are they just repainted/rereleased classics under a different banner? Any recommendations on good ones, or ones I should stay away from? I ask because I just purchased Bumblebee RtS and he looks nifty, better paintjob than the Classics one imo, but then I ...

So, I've now finished the main ongoing (not yet read TDoOP) Can't be alone in thinking Hearts of Darkness was abysmal right? God awful artwork, horrible writing and just generally ehh, I got an issue and a half in and decided to save time and read the synopsis on tfwiki. The artwork in this book was...

Tigerhawk is a massive anticlimax, God-like emissary to cannon fodder in about three episodes. This thread is like the Duracell bunny, jus keeps on going!

Reasonably Priced Classics/Universe/Whatever They're Called

So I've finally got some money for the first time in 5 years and decided I might take a look to see whether I can pick up any interesting toys from the Classics line (I only have Prowl and Starscream) only to find all the old toy haunts I used to use either don't have them or are selling them for ex...

Been browsing some of the threads and I see that much of the ole furniture is the same. Basically, I've been reading the IDWverse (much of it for the first time) ...

Oh and some advice for your 2nd year, get a house that either isnt in a particularly student populated place, or one with double glazed windows! Been real ill for the last day or two, went to bed at 11 last night, absolutely exhausted, didnt get to sleep until 4am cos of constant racket down our road.

Ah Uni... I'm currently sitting here, a week before my term starts, freshers week, all by myself in a dark empty house with no one to talk to cos my friends decided to go out clubbing. In order to get in they had to get to the club at 8:30 because of how busy it would be, and won't be back by 3... I...

Which one's Adam Baldwin? Is he the second-least rubbish one who seems like the most rubbish because the most rubbish one somehow ended up in The Usual Suspects and thus managed to be the only one in the family to appear in an actual decent film?

I watched the last season earlier in the year... didn't bother with the mini-movie last two eps. Mostly due to the weird non-sequitur "oh, is that it then?" ending. Oddly compelling, though a damp squib in comparison to the bonkers tension twistiness of the first two seasons. Blatantly obvious surp...

Nuts for nerds, a way for those scared of their own individuality who want to look like they're reading about Chantelle off Big Brother's tits when they're on the tube or posing in Costa. I agree with that to a point. It's filled with enough other ranom toss that it can be passed off as any other m...

Michael Moore

So, I'm just watching Bowling For Columbine, and it has just showed the scene that details USA's military endeavours for the last 50-60 years, which, from this perspective, are horrific... But I'm not judging, be aware I used the word perspective... Do you feel Michael Moore is just presenting the f...

CLiNT

So anyone picked this up/Looking to pick this up? For anyone who doesn't know what CLiNT is it's a new magazine in the UK that focuses on comics, I'm guessing it's much liked 200AD, serialised comic strips from upcoming talent, celebrity writers (Frankie Boyle and Jonathan Ross are both writing for ...

A statement by him that it is a sign of bad taste would have accomplished the same goal - that the creator of the group voluntarily shuts it down. It was unnecessary (and a bit creepy) to try to get facebook to close the group. You really think that would work? A guy creates a facebook group that h...

If Starz was a movie channel then they're beginning to move in to original programming, theyre the channel behind the new Spartacus show, and I think they have 1 or 2 other TV shows lined up.
