Haven't read it myself, but it features a lot of non-show Cybertron figures.
See, isn't Cannonball's pirate ship SUH-WEET? I want a toy of that NOW.
Hmmm wish I could afford membership. Can you club guys at least give us non-members a summary of the story?
About halfway through it.
Cannonball is a PIRATE, me hearty. He'll stab ye in th' face if ye accuse him o' bein' a medic, I wager, yarrr.
It's pretty good.
For those who want to display their toys... Cannonball's crew is Skywarp, Runamuck, Buzzsaw, and Brushguard.
The basic plot: Autobots (Override, Longrack, Swerve, Excellion, Blurr) carrying the Force Chip crash land on Sandokan. Cannonball hires Astrotrain and his Astro-troop to find the Dark Heart on Sandokan. Chaos ensues...
There's also a really good sequence with Astrotrain powerlinking to his Minicons.
Black Sea of Sandokan now online at TransformersClub.com!
The highly anticipated Black Sea of Sandokan story has finally been posted at Transformers Club.com. Make sure to drop by the members only section and log in to find out what happens to Override and her crew from Speed Planet as they battle several non-show Decepticons from Transformers: Cybertron as well as the soon to be shipped club exclusive Astrotrain!
Be forwarned though, it is a long read of about 30 pages.
Was posted by Powered Convoy earlier cbff. But thanks just the same
Incidently, the other thread is on this same page
Oops, my bad.
Could've use a smidge of editing/proofreading, but overall a rather good read IMO.
Huh. The Dark Heart: a mechanical weapon which destroyed its creators and is capable of reconfiguring matter at will. Justice League Unlimited anyone?
All in all, a good read. As already mentioned, could have used a sweep for errors, but even those were minimal and not too distracting. B+
Darn @work and can't remember my log in info. I'll read it when I get home. Sigh.
EDIT: Good story! Love the art!
they just had to go and make his crew into characters that i passed on....that sucks....i really dont wanna buy the other 4, but ive already got cannonball...dammit to hell....and i need two of the autobots as well....blasted story making figures cooler then they were before....
It was okay I guess.. some errors, and it had a fan-fic feeling to it in a way. I guess it was okay, but the ship was awesome.
I thought it was very good. It had a pretty solid plot, and I liked that it focused on secondary characters (with the exception of Override) that were able to get out of the situation on their own, without having to get special help from a major character. Something like; "All would have been lost, but just then, Optimus Prime and Hot Shot emerged from the space bridge!" would have really ruined it for me.
I do wish however, that they had said that Blurr's new look came from some major damage that not only gave him a new face, but it screwed up his speech patterns so he talked like his G1-counterpart. I just would have loved to read something like: "BUILDSFLYINGHEREROBOTSBLASTINGTHEREIVEGOTTOSHOOTSHOOTSHOOT!"
Now, wait, is this a comic or a "words-only" story? If it's a comic, I REALLY want to see a damned pic of that pirate ship! I've got my own pirate crew led by Cannonball and I'd love to custom-make a ship if it exists in TF lore already rather than create my own. Does it have a name?
<SigH> why do I feel so empty?
This was horrible. What's with the bad accents and crap? Who's writing this garbage anyway?
God, it was horrible. The art was good though.
It's a "words-only" story with six, comic-style pictures on certain pages that are to enhance important parts in the story. There is a picture of Cannonball's ship, the Kalis' Lament, on the first page.
Um, the only character with an "accent" was Cannonball, who talked like a pirate. It fit, since he seemed like the only "real" pirate of the group (the rest of his crew seemed like they would have fought for whoever paid them the most, not because they had the heart of a pirate). Ben Yee wrote this, and while it does have a fan-fic feel to it, I still think it was very well done.
EDIT: This whole thing makes me want Astrotrain and Airrazor even more. Any more info as to when they are going to start shipping?
The latest newsletter said late February, so any day now.
This is the first time I've really regretted not being a member; I'm hoping they at least release the picture of the ship at some point. Cannonball is one of my favorite characters, it's amazing what a good bio and a love of pirates can do.
