    IDW Publishing Forums :: View topic - HOW TO GET WRECKED

    Okay peoples, looks like it's up to us to generate some heat for this bad boy. So if anyone wants to win an original Springer sketch by me, buy signed copies of LAST STAND OF THE WRECKERS #1, witness actual non-TF comic artists drawing a Wrecker-a-day all week and listen to me on a podcast, please visit nickroche.blogspot.com as well as eclecticmicks.com, home to sneaky Wrecker hints for the last six months!

    Also, as I'm currently not signed up to many of the bigger TF sites, if someone could throw a link to my blog and the bumber crop of Wrecker info that lies within, I'd be ever-so grateful. In fact, thanks already to the chaps and chapettes who are flying the Wreckers flag all over the web already.

    Wreck 'n' Rule!

    Honestly, it's all going to depend on whether the book is actually good or not.

    We will spread good buzz if that happens to be the case.

    Sorry, but IDW has made me a big gun-shy as of late, so I'll reserve judgment until I see it.

    I figured it out, but I am easily confused.
    I mean a signed picture by Nick Roche is one thing, but a signed picture by Sideswipe80 is not as enticing.

    I'm in that camp, too.
    I hear the new ongoing is good, but I'm still trying to figure out how the war is over. In All Hail Megatron, Megatron beat up Optimus Prime, declared victory then sat around and blew some crap up.
    Despite much exposition that Prime could not be fixed, he was miraculously fixed off panel, came back and beat up Megatron and now the Autobots have won?
    How am I supposed to follow an ongoing when I don't feel like I've witnessed the events that lead up to this series in spite of the fact that I have read every single issue?

    um... the cons all left or were deactivated for the most part... and megatron got shot in the face by Spike... leaving the cons without a leader and scrambling... this picks up 3 years after that... what's not to get?

    Nick Roche's name alone carries enough weight to sell this title, I can't wait to get ahold of it.

    What about a signed picture by me? I hear that MS Paint drawings of Transformers are highly collectable in my own imaginary world.

    That's exactly what's not to get.
    The Transformers were shown to have forces spread throughout the galaxy.
    I'm not going to get into it, its been discussed to death.
    But even in All Hail Megatron the Decepticons were at least hinted at having a much larger force than what we saw on the pages.
    Megatron said that the Decepticons in New York were considered 'gods' among their brethren. Megatron took thousands of Decepticons and turned them into Insecticon drones.

    Then, 15 or 20 Autobots attack the Decepticons in New York, Megatron gets shot in the head, and suddenly the war is over. No chain of command -nothing.
    And, how are the Decepticons "scattered" when there were only about 20 of them on Earth anyway? How were they mostly deactivated? I didn't see it?

    In All Hail, the Decepticons had won (because Prime lost a fight) and then they hung around Earth blowing things up for no apparent reason. Now in the ongoing the Autobots have won (because Megatron lost a fight) and the Autobots appear to be just hanging out on Earth -hiding for no apparent reason.

    Don't forget that Decepticon forces had slaughtered the Autobots across the Galaxy due to the "traitor". Decepticons could lower defenses at will and were making a galaxy wide attack. We heard the messages, we saw it going on. Omega Supreme showing up was a surprise because of it.

    As far as we know, the Autobots that were on Earth and Metroplex are the only Autobots left, while there's a galaxy full of Decepticons with warships, planets, and more.

    That does explain why the Autobots are still on Earth, but not how their beating two dozen Decepticons constitutes a galaxy wide victory.

    I don’t have a link but on the IDW forums Costa said the reason the Autobots won was because with Megs believed to be dead the Cons have given up. He compared it to when Hitler killed himself and his armies surrendered. I wish I could find that link.

    I wish things like that were compellingly explained to the reader.

    Also, how much for one of your prints? LOL
    Can you do it in MS Paint like RabidYak?
