    Uh huh..


    Thanks StarFire MK2 (Got to mention "MK2" now that there's another Starfire. :lol ). I haven't tried 2-part epoxy before. Sure I'll give you a holla when I need help k. :) 

    There's a problem with Drift though. If you read how I tried to fix the broken parts, I actually superglued the sides of the clear plastic WITH the white plastic in it, to try to add friction to the broken off part of the white piece, thinking that it would hold the foot in place better. So in that sense, I've already dug Drift's grave...? The white plastic bit may not be removed from the clear plastic bit with the super glue there.... Ooops. >.<

    Hey guys and girls.

    I have sad news. I'm afraid I haven't got it in me to continue this comic partly due to my unpredictable away-from-home work schedule and also because I've become more of a humble TF collector than a comic maker. Real life has caught up and I have decided to move on from here. (But I will still collect TFs now and then)

    I would like to say that it has been a great adventure and honour to post my comics here in the Funnies thread of TFW2005 and to have so many supporters and readers. Because of you, the comic made it this far. I understand that this post has frustrated and saddened some of you as I cannot continue it anymore.

    Other reasons why I have done so is:
    1. Toy quality fatigue. Some of the earlier figures like Tengu and Camshaft have severely worn out parts that I cannot fix or find replacements for. So continuing the comic would end up in me not being able to pose them well enough for even simple scenes.

    2. Way too many figures. As fellow TF collectors, you know the hassle of taking figures off the shelves when you have painstakingly posed and arranged them together. >.<"

    So yeah, I'm very sorry again to stop this comic. I really didn't want it to end like this, but I have reached my limit as well. Camshaft and the gang also need a break. After all, we humans can recover from cuts and certain pains, but toys can't. :( 

    Also, many thanks to those of you who have sent me TF figures when the comic first started. You know who you are. Kindly PM me so that we can discuss how I can pay you back for your kindness. :)  To those of you who did so, hoping to see these toys in my comics, I'm really sorry they never made it.. :( 

    This is it. Apologies made, and I hope for your understanding. And last but not least, thank you very much for reading The Life of Camshaft.

    Well, it cannot be helped if circumstances ain't allowin' it as well as morale and drive not bein' what it used to be. Still, I do remember readin' this fondly and in part it did inspire me to do mine ^^

    Bittersweet but at least you gave this post.

    Wishin' ya well on whatever's ahead of ya.

    Always sad to see a good comic such as this one having to come to an end, but I understand that this cannot be helped. Thanks for all the comic goodness that you gave us, ZUDON!

    I always loved your comic, and it's sad to see it end in this way.

    But in the end, some closure is better than none.

    thanks for taking time in explaining your reasons for the comic to end.

    Hope you do well in all your future projects :thumb

    I'd like to echo what has been said here. The Life of Camshaft was one of my favs, and I'm sorry that it will not continue. But life goes on, and we occasionally, reluctantly, have to let things go. Thanks for the years of laughs, drama and entertainment you've given us, Z, and I'm sorry our little plan will not see the light of day. Will you still be around the boards?

    I'm really sorry to hear that Zudon. I know how it can be, trying to squeeze comic making in when other things want all of your time.

    Just remember, this is your thread forever. If you ever wanna chat, or do a one shot, or show off something, more power to ya. We'll be here.

    Glad to know I was an inspiration for you. :)  Thanks Fez.


    You're most welcome. Thank you so much.


    You're most welcome. :) 


    :cry  :( 


    Glad to hear that. I hope you may still continue on with your comic. All the best with that and with your endeavours in life!


    You're welcome TRANS+CRAZY.


    Yeah I felt that I really had to write something for closure. It's not good to leave something hanging like that. Thanks man!


    I'm really sorry I couldn't keep my end of that plan StarFire. And thank you so much as well for liking this comic. :) 

    As of right now, I usually just check the TF updates on the main page. I will visit the Funnies every now and then.

    I'm really sorry to everyone that I haven't been able to catch up on so much goodness from your comics for more than a year! If I can, I'll find some time to slowly go through them again.


    Thanks Pol and for your surprise last time. :)  I still remember that moment so clearly. I cannot forget it. :) 

    Sure. I've actually been meaning to take some interesting one shots for my signature pic, but my comic didn't reach far enough to execute that plan. Because I wanted to introduce more characters to make that signature pic worthwhile.

    I may very well just do those one shots soon. Thanks for the tip.

    Hey all. How is everyone? Hope you all had a good Christmas and Happy New Year. :) 

    Just wanted to show you guys my current collection and its display. It's real messy but soon I'll get proper shelves to display the TFs proudly. Enjoy!

    ^That is KO oversized DOTM Megatron. Unfortunately it's a direct copy of the Voyager sized figure, thus no ratchet joints. Hence, a lot of his joints can't support his weight and as a result posability is limited. But he still looks so menacing.

    So... that's what I have been up to. Still collecting and just recently started a small Masterpiece collection and definitely looking forward to owning a MP Star Saber soon. I also have a couple more 3rd party combiners coming soon.

    As for life, I'm still iffy about my job but am still continuing with it. At least I get a decent paycheck - enough to save up for the future and to spend on Transformers until whenever I retire from collecting. I also managed to watch the G1 series, Masterforce & Victory serieses (Haven't watched Headmasters yet). But these series are really good and I can't believe I missed out on them when I was a kid! Glad to have finally caught up with what started this Transformer legacy. :) 

    As for comic catching up, it's still been hard and I'm doing my best to start.

    How has everyone been doing?

    Oh wow, your collection has grown! And dang, that KO oversized DOTM Megatron! Makes me wish that Hasbro would have given us a Leader-class DOTM Megatron before they canceled the DOTM toy line.

    Dude, you seriously have to watch Headmasters! It's AWESOME! Of the three Japanese G1 shows, it's my absolute favorite. My second favorite is the Victory series, which I'm almost done watching. Masterforce is my least favorite, mostly due to how human-centric that series was.
