If you LOVE Animated and LOVE mini-cons this comic page by @m... on Twitpic
NICE! Love me some Minicons! Man....If your gonna leave your prisoners online. give em some room to move at least!
must be toys
Loved the comic. So much cool. Anyone notice that last page that Oil Slick had a bit of an upgrade? DJW says he got a sidecar like Prowl did.
OMG i wanna give highwire a hug for some reason XD
Isn't he adorable?
Hmm, the pic isn't mirrored anymore? Don't know what happened there.
Speaking of new Animated stuff, seems to have slipped under the radar that DJW Tweeted a sketch of Animated Rhinox' head: Twitpic - Share photos and videos on Twitter
sweet! i need to get that box set soon so i can read the comic.
Another tidbit: in answer to a question on his thoughts about a possible Animated Menasor 3rd party add-on, he said via FormSpring something to the effect that he'd better hurry up and draw Animated Menasor so they don't screw it up.
Animated Puzzles me... is it supposed to bring in younger Children, are they just aping other mid/later 00's cartoons that makes them look so different to what Transformers usually look like. sometimes it's not that noticeable but those Minicons are really extreme they are more like Micromachines robots and are as Extremely varient from the norm as something like the Protoform Dread art is in the Movie Direction.
Am I just being to Nostalgic by wanting them to all look more typical as a general rule.
(I thought the Box set was OK in general terms though) but I think Animated is as much a Dead End to me as Energon or Armada is to other fans. I can't see me giving it much thought in 5 years time as long as they make toys not to dissimilar to the classics line. Design wise I actually prefer Playskool Gobots/ Big Adventure / 123 Transformers and the New Playskool Transformers. Which I feel bring in the kiddies but they don't drive me away either.
That said I did quite like some of the Animated characters "as toys" like Lockdown, Leader Bulkhead, Leader Megatron, Blurr, Snarl, & Swindle. But some of the show characters just seemed to be pushing their luck a bit (The Constructicons).
I personally love the variety and personality of Animated's designs. Aesthetically, it's easily my favorite Transformers incarnation. I find the G1 aesthetic kind of boring.
If they make Animated minicons that look like those drawings I am going to Botcon next year.
What is this Oil Slick upgrade I'm hearing about?
Huh? Haven't heard this on yet? Link?
OIL SLICK UPGRADE?
I dunno where you keep hearing about it but I'm willing to bet it is not anywhere on TFW2005.
And I like DJW's little hint there. I garuntee he will have an active hand in at least the concept design for Menasor.
If Derrick puts out a Mensor sketch and then the upgrade looks like it, I am so in. I don't own the Botcon set but heck I will get someone to paint those figures up for me or just use the guys I got.
OH, and Rhinox looks like Rhino from Spectacular Spiderman.
You mean DJW... Not Aaron Archer.
But yeah, this could be a game changer for 3rd party Menasor... If DJW draws one and a 3rd party makes it, the price of that boxed set will go nuts! I'm glad I've already got mine.
