Star Trek vs. Transformers #4 by John Barber, Mike Johnson & Philip Murphy on Apple Books
Oh man I'm looking forward to getting the TPB when that come out!
That enterprise TF just looks absolutely stupid. Sorry, but it's true.
The enterprise head looks like the voltron head with a different paintjob. :|
Looks like a standard Fort Max head to me. Given he's a rebuilt Fort Max that makes sense.
i would be disappointed if it didn't this is TAS meets sunbow G1
I wish it took place in the actual cartoon continuity instead of having characters that couldn’t possibly be around. Trypticon wasn’t constructed until Five Faces of Darkness, and Fortress Maximus wasn’t constructed until Rebirth. I don’t understand why they would so go close to the cartoon continuity then crap over it like this. Windblade and Airachnid being in it is fine as the cartoon often introduced new characters that only showed up for that single episode.
It's kinda wrought into history of ST Earth, the past total war on Earth's future to be precise. It's a nice touch.
It\'s a cute book that I have limited interest in beyond \"Heh. They did that.\"
Is it bad that I am having flashbacks to an episode of SeaLab 2021?
I need a Fortress Tiberius.
they cover this in the second issue.
It's set in a universe that is much closer to Star Trek that it is to Transformers. They are using the G1 and ST:TAS art because, nostalgia.
Amazing, this gets dumber and dumber as it goes along.
It should have been in both cartoon’s continuities.
Then there is no reason that Fort Max can't be there. He was built in the early 2000's. But then we could not have Megatron, Starscream or Soundwave.
Eeeeeeee! CANNOT WAIT FOR GRAPHIC NOVEL!!!!!!
Couldn't be unless they've kept it only to the eighties.
Once it progresses to around the time when Fort Max appears or around TFTM, the TF and ST continuities start conflicting.
Because then ST continuity Earth has a period of world-wide warfare and collapse of civilisation.
They had to pick one of them and I think it's a more original idea to roll with the ST Earth.
The only alternative I could see would be setting the TFs on one of those crazy Earth-like planets with identical culture, language, politics, and history like Miri’s World.
I kinda hope with all the Mattel hoopla that IDW can make a Star Trek Animated/He-Man crossover in this style.
Those continuities are easier to align and they shared an art style and behind the scenes talent.
You just establish Marlena Glenn (He-Man’s mom, who was always an Earth Astronaut) as a lost pre-Starfleet astronaut between Zefram Cochrane and Enterprise. Harry Mudd selling hardware to Hordak, Kirk making eyes at She-Ra, maybe Trelane cutting a deal with Skeletor.
