    That looks to be the first appearance of everyone in the panel, too! Except Shrapnel, who debuted a few pages earlier. Thanks for the excuse to dig in the back issues, I'm going to do some reading! :D

    Thanks for scanning that. I have been wondering this too recently. I figured it was something he said.

    I'd argue the wiki is at least responsible for popularizing it in recent times, considering how Straxus is virtually unknown to most people until very recently, and the wiki is the probably largest repository of Straxus information.

    Wow, Straxus is quite a portly fellow with stumpy legs.

    bad marvel comic art, great story telling.
    bad idw story telling, great art.

    Oh, you can do both!

    What I dig about Straxus is how he heated the place: keeping a smelting pool of dying Autobots in his basement has got to hold down your utility bills.

    Also, as soon as he hears from Soundwave on Earth, with his "We have a ripe planet to exploit" message, he replies with an offer to help. The first year of the comic was one big fight between Shockwave and Megatron, something about who had the biggest barrel in gun mode. Straxus was the warlord who wanted to get down to business.

    And if not for Blaster, the fat little warlord wouldn't have been blown up and reduced to a head in a jar.

    I always figured he built his fortress on top of some kind of geologically hot location or had some ridiculously overpowered power generation system, and he had so much energy left over, that he had to something with it. So someone suggested the smelting pool, and Straxus liked it, so it was built. And then the minion asked for some credit, Straxus looked at him, eyes narrowed, and was all "Performance based bonuses are not dispensed here, ONLY DEATH!"

    I really wish I had bought all the TPB of all the collected UK G-1 Marvel TF comics a decade ago. as Straxus got further persona in the UK G-1 TF Comics.

    The rest of the internet is missing out.

    As Straxus would say about TFW2005:

    Mercy is not dispensed here, fools...only awesomeness.
