    ^Wow. Super radical translation, there, SydY! :D 

    Thanks man! ;) 

    Now we know why Screamer needs to have 4-pairs of eyes! :D 
    A pair to immobilize his victims and the other pair to look and destroy his enemies by jinxing them into a bad-luck scenario! :lolol

    Does does mean Alternity Starscream is a bit crazy and/or paranoid?

    I love Skywarp's head sculpt. It's a shame the Orochi is such an ugly (and slow!) car.

    Cool bios. I especially like Skywarp's new reality warping ability. Too bad he's still not bright enough to use his new found powers without orders from Megatron, but that's pretty much in keeping with his already established personality.

    Very nice job on the translations, SydneyY! :thumb

    "Silver SNAKE," rather than "Silver Serpent", was one of the nicknames created for Starscream by Bob Budiansky. Most 84 characters had nicknames intended for use in their Transformers Universe profiles, but they were all excised, save for a few printings of the profiles in the "Transformers Comic Magazine" digest series. That's where the Silver Snake moniker comes form.

    Is anyone else getting an Edwin Abbott vibe here? ( Flatland - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia )

    After watching Peaugh's video of Starscream, I wasn't too keen on these guys... but I didn't realize Skywarp had a different headsculpt. I like it a LOT. I've also always loved Skywarp's black/purple colorscheme, soooo... I might be picking that one up. I just really hope he doesn't have any very easily broken parts like my Alternity Megatron's shin-taillights.

    ^Nice find, my friend! :D 

    Flatworld and Edwin Abbott? :eek: 
    Coincidence? I think not! :D 

    Also, yes, Alternity Skywarp's superior head sculpt FTW! ;)

    Ah-ha! SydneyY and I were wracking our brains trying to figure that one out - most of the Japanese hobby blogs SydneyY referenced didn't know either. So that's where it was from. Pretty cool, I'll add that explanation to the notes.

    Many thanks, I had a feeling you or one of the other Wiki gurus would know.

    Possibly, but it is referred to as a group of agents of the Megatron coalition. It's more likely that it's a group name for all the Destron agents of the Alternity, much like how the Cybertrons get the Protectors.

    All credit really goes to SydneyY. I just got the privilege of reading them first and making a couple of very small suggestions to improve.

    But glad you all like them. This is why we do what we do :)

    Thanks for the translations!

    Meanwhile something strange has happened. Originally I loved Skywarp and hated Starscream, but the more I'm seeing these two the more I think I like Starscream (and the less I like Skywarp)..weird!

    I think I've been inspired to write a quirky little indie dramedy entitled:

    I Love You, Alternity
