So Ultra Mammoth is brown in the comics?
I think that's Jungle Planet Optimus Prime..or at least the mold and look is:
Shmax.com: Part Details
I really haven't paying attention to the comics too much, so I can't say for sure.
Holy crap!! Since day one I've been saying that I was going to use the sub figures (and DC) as a group like Exiles, and that's exactly what the club is doing!!! This just made my freaking day! Pete, was I the only one to "guess" this??
...Dammit, now I have to buy a subscription.
...god damn it man. You just totally validated my purchase.
I freaking love that idea.
I am totally confused!
Here's when I first mentioned the idea:
Even recently using DC as the leader:
Depth Charge and Rhinox!
Now they are making me want to purchase an Animated mold! Damn you Fun Pub!
So that Origin Matrix was the one from the Ultra Mammoth toy, and the club membership figure was Depth Charge, we see Slipstream, Breakdown, Jackpot and Circuit playing cards... The only one missing is Scourge. I'd guess he's the one the Primes want Depth Charge to find!
i can't stand transtech shit but wow, this looks cool.
SO wait, there is a ship full of Autobots who need ot be warned, who were lost... okay, it's Scourge and the Commandos!
I think it may be referring to the ships Prime and Megatron left Earth on.
It's possible that Scourge is SDCC Nemesis Prime and that Classics Ultra Magnus is Ultra Mammoth.
Slipstream could also be the Slipstream from Exiles.
Let's go completely wacky. It's two ships from the G1 universe, and possibly time is in flux... It's the Axalon and Darkside!
Well, I like the way they drew Slipstream's head in the comics. Too bad the figure doesn't have a new headsculpt.
well. uh... the artwork looks great at least
Matrix of Origin huh? I can dig that.
Incorrect. It do.
Classicsverse Axalon/Darksyde? I like this.
ESPECIALLY when you remember two things:
1. Ultra Mammoth's a Maximal.
2. Scourge in RiD was a clone...created by the PREDACONS of that series.
If this actually ends up like Exiles, it could be good. And I would want the club to work out something with IDW and get someone like James Roberts writing, given how much fun he could have with an Exiles style book.
I just wiki'ed Slipstream and found pics of the deluxe toy. The head sculpt looks nothing like the one in the comics.
Now if they used the voyager SS toy and made a prettier sculpt for Slipstream's head, that'd be cool.
It does, it just doesn't look nearly as good as the artist's interpretation.
