Dubstep is sick!
Yeah, I agree those guys aren't really same as Sideswipe and Optimus. Since only like 4 of them are new versions of old characters.
On Gojira Prime's question...what you guys said really reminds me why I like you guys and Preorder 66. You guys keep very objective, instead of being like "oh! Everything sucks! Why did *insert company name here* do this!"
Yeah I have to say I think you guys do well and I listen because I enjoy the conversations and the constructive comments about various figures or shows. I also think you give a really unbiased view on figures and what not. I myself have picked up several figures just from listening to you guys chat and talk up a figure be it an actual transformer or an off topic figure.
While I know Im new to this forum, ive lurked for a while but just wanted to post my 2 cents. Again a great show guys.
I kind of think of Alternity Dai Atlas to be more of an Optimal Optimus because of his color scheme.
I too thought the soundtrack to Tron would have worked great for Transformers when it came out.
However, the kind of music I associate with Transformers the most? A kind of retro, cheesy, almost big band music with lots of loud trumpets and stuff most often associated with super robot shows. I'm not quite sure how to really describe the genre, to be honest, but the soundtrack to G1 was very much like this - it felt kind of retro, even for the '80's, but had some synth and guitars worked in.
I think I'll provide a few examples of what I'm talking about:
"A Step Forward into Terror" - Neon Genesis Evangelion
Neon Genesis Evangelion OST 1 - A Step Forward Into Terror - YouTube
"Sure Promise (Union Square)" - Big O
The Big O (THE
"Final Fusion" - Gaogaigar
GaoGaiGar OST- FINAL FUSION (Extended) - YouTube
"Angel Attack II" - Evangelion
EVA Soundtrack 2 - Angel Attack II - YouTube
And of course, this kind of music is no stranger to Transformers outside of G1:
Transformers Cybertron/Galaxy Force OST: Combination Power. - YouTube
You liked my Mech-At-Arms figure concept!
Of course you could probably make you own with some super glue and the proper figures.
I'm not a big MOTU fan, but I still really dig how Skeletron looks. Not gonna get him, nor do I have the Botcon figure... nor have I ever shown interest in owning one, but that head is a definite improvement.
You know, it's kinda weird that I think Gigatron's headsculpt looks totally wrong on that body, but GDO Megatron doesn't bother me that much. I have no idea why.
...Is that Mikoto?
Thanks for answering my question!
Hello from Italy guys!
I've been listening to the Podcast tonight, and wanted to say thanks everybody for the very kind words about me and my work
I hope to be able to share more concepts in the near future, I worked on a lot of stuff, but most of the time things needs to remain classified.
But I do have another authorized character from the bible that I'm going to post soon.
Also, some of them are going to show up in the Pop-Up book by Little Brown Books, I was asked to use them as a the base for many of those illustrations.
BTW, about Sideswipe, most of the art (including the pieces I did) has been created before TF Prime, so the visuals weren't really meant to match with that style. We were also a bunch of artists doing explorations, so all of us added their own things and created a great mix of different styles and ideas for the various characters.
As an example, Prime was sketched by Eric Siebanaler and then painted over by me, and that set the standard for most of the pieces I did after that.
Oh, and yes, I worked on some IDW stuff. I did Spotlight Blaster, half of a couple Hail Megatron issues and the short Sunstreaker story
Wow, hello sir! I am honored you listened to the show. I really appreciate you posting the Thundertron art. I already loved the toy, but your art gave me a deep appreciation for all the molded details I otherwise would have missed. Keep up the amazing work and I hope you get to continue to work on the brand.
Thanks for the clarification on Sideswipe.
Thank you very much for checking out the podcast and coming by! I am looking forward to the next blog post. Echoing Gog, I hope we get to see more of your work in future Transformers media.
"hate engine" was the name of a local band around here years ago. And all Gogs talk about MP TC has me thinking about grabbing one soon. Which means then I'll need Starscream as I already have Skywarp.
