    This strip just makes me laugh, and that's a sweet thing.

    SA:Well, we don't toss dwarves here. Minicons, maybe. :)

    Have our heroes been liquidated? Will Carblast's creditors ever collect?

    Carblast should add the Go-gos to his list. :thumb 

    Have I mentioned that I enjoy the format of your comics? They're certainly a nice variation on the "stack of pictures" format most of us use.

    :lolol  at "your recent garlic order", Power Tie Charge meter, Start Menu and in fact the whole damn HUD.
    In fact, that whole update is full of nice little "detail" gags like the changing displays on the chest panel.

    And I see that Carblast is a Burt Bacharach fan...

    All in all, Yum Yum. More please.

    Folks:
    I made people feel old, yay! :D  But our little minicon loves his classic "Street", too. He wanted me to play "Baby Disco" for him four times in a row yesterday, and was copying all the crazy head-motions. Adorable.

    SD:So you can read the Standard Galactic Alphabet? The Yorps will be pleased. Pretty much all my "Cybertronic" lettering is actually SGA, though you may notice some other alphabets here and there. The graph is as you guessed, but what it really is is "a cheap joke because I thought the panel looked boring".

    SA:A notable lack! However, I made his playlist by grabbing a handful of tapes out of my Jumbled Boxes o' Tapes, and unfortunately, I don't have a single Go-Go's album. *scribbles notes for next thrift-store mission* As to the format, I like to standardize; it makes updates and salvage operations easy, and five panels seems to work well with gags, but sometimes with action you need more. I try to vary it a little, although it probably will always be more rigid than I'd like.

    CH,O: We aim to please. I've seen some really cool HUD's here, and it made me think: "How do we make this Really Silly"? Glad it didn't fall flat. :)

    Note that my 6Ti Megs has had numerous minor modifications and hacks to allow him to stand and pose, and even at that he was somewhat of a PITA. Still cool looking IMHO. Also note that the Maus tank, which he's based on, weighed 188 tons, not 32...it was a heavy beast...but I used a smaller Tiger tank for reference.

    Well, there sure is reason to shriek about the figure's quality. I only paid $5 for mine (Target error, they rang it up even after I told them so :)  ). Maybe I should have mentioned how Megs singlehandedly killed off the whole 6" Titanium line...at least their reputation. :(

    Sheik. It's a arabian title, like a european duke or count.
    Honestly though I only know that because of a episode of hanna barbara's "yogi's gang" where they meet the sheik of selfishness. I kinda like how corny the puns on that show were but hate how all the characters and animation suffered for it.

    I'm pretty sure the inspiration was from "The Iron Sheik", especially with the Camelbot Clutch reference. 1980's FTW! :lol

    :lolol  Hilarious! Still getting a Scooby-Doo vibe there, what with the garbage chute and crashing into people using huge garbage bins. And the little details like the HUD are just great.

    Only minor thing is that due to the small size of the comic panels, it's sometimes a little hard for me to make things out...

    DZ:Ah, you probably mean the small, subdivided panels? Your screen resolution may be higher than mine (1024x768). I've tried 640x480 but wasn't pleased with the look of the single panels...plus, I try to optimize this thing for "small-window workplace viewing". :D 

    SD Re "Iron Sheik":I'm pretty sure you're right :)  I think I may have worn out the '85 Topps card schtick, though.

    It's a bunch of Lego parts. Technic axles and connectors, a clear dome, and the lid from one of those 'pod' sets from a while back.
