    lol when this turns into an international incident i'm going to blame you for letting the US board members know.



    i have this image in my head of mind-controlled british schoolchildren attempting to assassinate Obama like the megatron's body guns in the IDW comics

    well the cover (minus the gun) appeared on TFWiki a couple days ago I think, so it'd be their fault lol

    I just love that the toy gun even comes with a scope on top as well lol

    I don't have anything against it, I just find it funny that they have a free gun next to a sign that says "The President must die"

    I may have to go buy this for the fun of it. I wonder if anyone will be offended by it in the US? Not that it's a US product of course...

    So what's the deal with this? It looks like a magazine, but it's a comic? Only in the UK? Who publishes it, and more importantly where can I get it?!

    It's a UK magazine that has an 8 page comic inside it (Prime continuity at the moment) You would have to have the magazine ordered from the UK or through a magazine/comics seller to get it in the US

    Titan comics publishes it

    Thanks for the info. I found the first issue on evilBay, but other than that these things seem impossible to get in the U.S.. I managed to add a few issues to my cart on the Titan website, but the price came up as zero pounds so I don't think that's going to work.

    Maybe you can ask at a comic shop if they can import a copy?

    I might try that with my local shop, thanks. I found a guy on eBay, but he doesn't have all the issues.

    ...it took me a few seconds of looking at the picture to realize what the issue was. "It's a toy gun. So? What's the big deal...oooooohhhh, right. Yikes." :lol

    "The President Must Die! Here is a gun!"

    Individually, the two concepts are okay. Together, implications... disturbing.
