    IACON ONE: Where things are not what they seem....

    March 13, 2006 News


    WELCOME

    Welcome to the latest installment of the Iacon One newsletter. New update to the Iacon One Datatrax, otherwise, it's a quiet week... or is it?? There's a lot going on behind the scenes. Among other announcements, pre-registration is almost at hand!


    DATATRAX ENTRY #2

    What is Datatrax? We've set aside a portion of the Iacon One web site for a look at some fun artifacts / information of interest to fans, rarely seen before, some of which will be on display in their original form at the Iacon One event in July. We'll also be doing some 'behind the scenes' blogging about the event as plans progress.

    The latest addition to the Datatrax is unused character art for... Transformers Universe Menasor! Who, you ask? This redeco was originally planned for the Transformers Universe toyline, but never released. But now you can get a look at what might have been... (recognize the toy?)

    Sucks about Menasor, but just keep in mind the crappy ones that we undoubtably dodged when Universe was cancelled.

    Besides, it can always get released as an exclusive.

    Cool artwork, but I am not a fan of MW Optimus mold. So does this now offically mark the start of the please give us Universe Menasor drive like the U-Seacons?

    Wow, am I glad that thing's cancelled. It seems that it was going to have a real weird colorscheme (black torso, yellow legs, blue backpack, multicolored head-WTF!?). :peoples:

    Wow, looks like it would've been a nice figure. I guess we can thank Hasbro for getting the line cancelled by continually putting out ugly POS Universe figures instead of the things people really wanted.

    I really like that mould. One of the coolest projectile systems ever IMO.

    Ah well, not much we can do about it.

    As someone who has HAS a MW Optimus,,, I should warn you. It's a BRICK. :banghead: 

    Probably better off with out it, the only articulation is the elbows. (and I supppose the hips)

    Not that it wouldn't be nice to reengineer the arms since all they do is fold into the chest. We could get ball jointed shoulders and elbows, as well as wrist joints

    A neck joint wouldn't be too much of a re-engineer either.

    (meby?)
