The Devil's Due one has some goofy lookin' art. At least the ad for it has goofy lookin' art. The Joes are waaay too stylized to the point of distraction.
Whirlwind was the 'copter and Roadmaster (? Road something anyway..Road breaker? Road taster? Road Grover?) was the Humvee lookin' thing. I have him.
Rereadin' the vintage books lately. I like how they introduced Smokescreen, Hoist, Tracks, Skids, and Grapple. Ratchet goes into this big speech how they can't repair any of their fallen comrades for lack of spare parts, then they replenish their ranks by beaming stored personality crystals into FIVE BRAND NEW AUTOBODIES Could we not strip down the five bodies to repair the others?
I've also ascertained when and where the Transformer comics ending was preordained. After a crappy storyline featuring Throttlebots and scraplets, they give us a filler issue with a reprint from the U.K. comic. And not just any filler issue. A filler issue with a CLIFFHANGER. So we'll waste another issue next month reading about the conclusion of the filler issue we never really cared about to begin with. So I'm guessing after four months of craptastic issues, many readers headed for the hills and the book never recovered and finally gave up the ghost with #80. Jose Delbo's art didn't help either. Powermaster Prime is constantly bending at an odd angle for no particular reason....
Flipped thru the MTMTE guidebook. Feh. Not impressed. Probably because it was crawling with Micromasters. They should have a scale thing in there. Here's Optimus, a normal sized Transformer, and here's a dinky Micromaster. And Why the heck is Alpha Trion in there?
