    Wow. Great stuff. Mirage is G1 accurate though that doesn't mean that someone shouldn't plant one right on his faceplate.

    I am loving this comic. Love it when Alternators are used. Great for posibilty.
    Also the writing in this is top notch and the photography and effects are great.

    Imo this, Funness and Warring are my favourite comics. Keep up the good work.
    Will you be using Masterpieces as well?

    Cool! I’ve pleased DilaZirk, the God of Toy Posing! :rock 

    Yup. I think I actually invented new swear words whilst posing the alts for the first half of this update. I had quite a detailed sequence of moves planned for Mirage’s disarm and takedown of Silverstreak, but due to the limits of the toys (mostly down to kibble-clashing, oddly enough) I had to ditch most of it and present a greatly simplified version.
    So frustrating.

    Yep, everyone’s analysis of Mirage is spot on. He’s not a nice guy at all but, as Grimwing mentioned, he’s VERY good at what he does.

    Thanks Dude. :) 
    Both Mirage and Silverstreak are two characters that I’m going to try and keep very close to their original toy bios, coz I find those original conceptions of the characters fascinating.

    Yowsers! I’ve got a long way to go before I can be mentioned in the same sentence as Fun-ness and Warring, but many thanks all the same. :) 

    As for the cast list, well, part of the fun of this story will be discovering who’s around and why (and also who’s NOT around and why.) And of course, I'm kinda limited to using what I actually own. But let’s just say I like Alternators a lot. :wink:

    Your comics gotten off to a really great start! :D  I like how you're using the Alternators, and your story is also very well written. I'm looking forward to seeing what else can happen! :D

    You've established so much in your story in such a short time and with only two characters. You are showin' an assload of promise :)

    I have always liked how Mirage is uppercrust all the way, but knows what he's doing, and is very good at it.

    I don't think I've ever seen Mirage written to conform to his original bio before. Maybe he's a bit more snooty than I'd have pictured him, but still... it does make him an interesting antagonist without making him all psycho, like Dreamwave's Sunstreaker was.

    Oooo... didn't know that.



    Oh yeah, that happens all the time for me. Even if I do try my best to think within the limits of the toy's articulation.

    Wrong Sunstreaker. :p 

    And yowza. This is the shiznitz, right here. Awesome. And thanks for reminding me about Mirage's G1 toy bio... Need to steal that for stuffs...

    This is awesome. Mirage is totally a high-class ass. And Silverstreak is cooooool... Philosophical inside, loudmouth jokester outside... Niiiiiiiiiiice. And I love the target comment. XP

    But whoever said there's way too much seriousness creeping into the funnies forum was spot-on. "Could find more cheer in a graveyard..." Exaggeration, yes, but I like quoting LotR. :p

    No. Sunstreaker is vain, but violent. The extened bio actually uses the word sociopathic. He's a well dressed thug, who'll kick your corpse, for getting blood on his suit, while he was beating you to death.

    Really? 0.o ... <3
    Tomi, forget Octane, Sunstreaker is the first Universe figure you are getting.

    Since when must I do what you say?
    Since I know all your dirty little secrets...
    ... Point taken. ._. I just got this visual of Sunstreaker in a pinstripe suit with a violin doublebass case and the theme from "The Godfather" in the background. Sunstreaker: head of the Cybertron Mafia.
    There is no mafia.

    Once again, thanks for everyone’s kind comments. :) 

    I gotta say, starting this strip has given me a whole new level of appreciation for the efforts that you guys all must put into setting up your shots and poses. I mean, I’d kinda guessed that was going to be tricky but AYE CARUMBA! I almost took a mallet to Mirage at one point…

    I humbly request permission to steal that line-I know exactly where I need to use it!

    Gloomy? Gloomy? This is positively Euphoric! You just wait and I’ll give you gloomy…nah, only kiddin. Not everyone in the story is as downbeat as the Streak. We just happened to meet him first.

    Yeah, I read that the Dreamwave version of Sunstreaker was gay. I’ve never quite got on board with the whole idea of Transformer sexuality so I can’t bring myself to view them in terms of gay OR straight. Romance and sex are by-products of the mammalian reproductive cycle, and Transformers don’t reproduce like that. I’m sure that they can love, but I think it would be the kind of love shown as a very strong family bond or a very close friendship. Maybe if they WERE organic, it might become sexual, but they ain’t so it can’t.
    That’s my take on it anyway. I do touch on it slightly a little later in the story.
    BTW, :lolol  at Greyryder’s description of Sunstreaker!

    But back to the matter at hand…update on the way later today.
