BotCon 2012 - IDW Publishing Live Panel


Recommended Posts

IDW last year at botcon pumped up the CHAOS saga & for me it was a huge let down.


Choas was such a let down. that I promised after Choas ended. I'd stop buying anymore IDW TF comics.


The plan originally was to start buying the Trade paper back volumes every 6 months. however I might not ever do that. as nothing really interesting nor stellar happened in the 2012 Rid & MTMTE comic issues from january 2012 thru april 2012. maybe I'll chose to buy volume one & volume two of 2012 Rid & MTMTE in January 2013. at least reading a entire years worth of comics might make everything stack up better & make more sense.


Currently I read the 8 page preview pages each month from rid & mtmte & Nothing special draws me in nor intrigues me.


I've been studying the IDW TF comics pattern for the past few years thru buying all the G-1 TF IDW comics. the first 6 months of each year is the laid back,take it easy,resting period for the transformers characters. the war gets a brief peace. then the last 6 months of each year,the heat turns up. violence it at all time highs. important characters die. tons of fighting.


With the simon furman re-generation series. I'm gonna get the "free" comic book on may 5,2012. I won't buy the individual issues. I'll buy the trade paper backs by the volume.


I think i'm switching over to trade paper backs. for various reasons mentioned above. Also,the trade paper backs volume has the TF comics on higher gloss more durable paper & they sometimes offer bonus material.

    • Tonight on GotBot Goes Live, we talked about a big rumor (I can't stress rumor enough) of a new SS 86 Hot Rod, we dive deeper into Ironhide and cover this week's news, including the 2 Canon crossovers. Plus, we play 2 rounds of trivia and do this week's unboxing!    
    • Been a lotta work over the years for the fans. Worth it. As for Cyril's collection, it is my entire childhood and then some.
    • I know he's not going to read this most likely but you're not supposed to be able to separate the car mode easily you twit. It's only supposed to happen when you plug it onto the Menasor frame. That's like complaining about a Powermaster not being able to easily transform if you don't have the engine in it. It's the whole point. And the people who say that Hasbro is coping third party figures. Are you serious? Hasbro is just copying the cartoon designs. Designs that they own. Which is what the third party were copying. CW Menasor was trying to emulate the toys more than anything with the scramble aspect. They were also trying to make Menasor's design work more like the rest of the Scramble City style combiners. It's just that how can they be copying something that they came up with first? And that Crasher still sucks. It should've been a retool of Dragstrip instead of just a redeco of Mirage with the other Mirage's spare head. Slicks should be the redeco of Mirage if you want to do a Gobot from him due to the similar parts layouts. Dragstrip when done right will always look more like Crasher as they have similar parts layouts. Even G1 Dragstrip looks like G1 Crasher. The front goes behind the head on both but in slightly different ways. Even still, you can make that same piece look like Crasher's.
    • Sideways is a bot of many hats. Herald of Unicron, glorified movie cameo, and Master Yogi to name a few. As far as I can tell this isn't a licensed car, which is ok as it allows for more wiggle room with the design and it shows. This is one of the few car transformers I didn't struggle with getting panels lined up and pegged into place. Robot mode is squat and lanky but once you have the legs bent properly they hold Sideways up well and it's pretty posable. If you've been looking for some of the more obscure characters from the live-action movies to get a figure, Sideways is a solid purchase.
