    I didn't go to botcon on account of being the working poor.

    But is there a way to read the Stunti-Con-Job comic thingy without needing to buy a bunch of repainted toys?

    They were selling the comic at BotCon separate. But no, you can't read it online without doing anything illegal.

    It'll be available at your local comic shop in something like six months from now. They always produce a "Diamond edition" for that purpose.

    Just looked on the club website for the comic and WOW. I live in the UK and their cheapest shipping would be $32.95. OMFG. 8.95 for the comic 32.95 for shipping. That is such a rip off i can hardly believe it. Plus that's their cheapest!!!! Guess i'm gonna have to resort to ebay or such :(

    The cheapest for me is like $2.50. The next cheapest one is $8.

    You have to be kidding me. XD

    Anyway, is the comic worth a purchase for how long it is? It's something I wanted from the box set.

    The comic is awesome, just finished reading it. Perfectly captured the spirit of TF:A and the best convention comic to date.

    PFFFT!......*spit take*

    It'll cost me 30 bucks for a comic! Someone tell me how many pages is this thing? 50 page comic?
    (Is that 30 US bucks as well?)

    That is way way over priced. Is there another option? pdf or something?

    No. I'm fine with buying. You buy things: so more things comes out.

    But the base price of the comic is like 8 bucks. So that's 20+ dollars being spent on shipping. That should never happen.

    Maybe an American member can help you guys out..have the comic shipped to him (or her), and then have him send it to you. Shipping will be much cheaper!

    The comic is definitely worth it. The look and the story are both like a really good episode of Animated, there was even a moment I forgot I was reading a comic.

    Here's an idea.

    Since we live in a world with basic technology & all, why doesn't somebody just take their camera + record it like a video comic? Heck, a couple of people with aspiring voices could probably even narrate the thing, and the same goes for Foley & audio options if they were up to it.

    Not like it'd be the same as reading it in your bed with a flashlight & your G2 Sideswipe, but you know. :)

    Personally, I think your sig looks cooler than the actual Animated Motormaster toy.

    That said, I would kill 4 a Motormaster repaint of RID Ultra Magnus. But that's 4 another thread.
