Since it's been 20-something years (man, I'm old) since I last saw the episodes in question, I didn't recall what happened to the Nemesis in the G1 cartoon myself. All I remembered was it spinning out of control in MTMTE1. I had just assumed it went back to Cybertron b/c it definitely wasn't the ship that crashed into the ocean in MTMTE3.

That is one scary looking Decepticon operating table. Could you imagine being an Autobot spy, getting captured? YIKES! Very nice artwork.

They were all permanently fused with their hard hats weren't they?

Also, I found it very amusing that the news item cropped image on the right of the forums is a close-up of a dude's crotch.

We have a couple of updates from our friend Jim Sorenson's blog Disciples of Boltax. First we have his weekly Ark Addendum update, which is Motormaster's transformation sequence. It can be seen in the mirrored image below. Next we have some addition information on Legacy: The Box Art of The Transformers, Jim's new project that was revealed during the IDW panel last weekend at BotCon. The book will cover all of the US and Japanese (including eHobby) releases up until Beast Wars, and possibly some of the European releases provided the material can be found. The book will also contain artist interviews, vintage and unused art, production sketches, and more. Here's a list of what Jim is currently looking for. If you can help contact Jim at:
transformerstheark@yahoo.com

Jetfire
Trypticon (US)
Deluxe Autobots & Insecticons
Quickmix
Triggerbots & Triggercons
Bomb-Burst/Blood
Pretenders from 88: Iguanus, Roadgrabber, Chainclaw, Catilla, Carnivac, Snarler
Pretenders from 89: nearly all
Most European exclusive toys
A good number of Action Masters
Micromasters Flattop, Roughstuff, Race Track Patrol, Sports Car Patrol, Battle Patrol Team
G2: Most of them, but my biggest wants are Onslaught, Fireflight, Powerdive, Sizzle, and Volt to complete out existing partial sets of mine
Japanese dino cassettes

There are also some that I have decent quality pics of but I'd like to upgrade, mostly from 86:
Shockwave
Galvatron
Technobots
Terrorcons
1986 minibots (excepting Wheelie)
Runamuck & Runabout
Overkill & Slugfest
Throttlebots

I love this episode. A memorable voice performance for the exiled Quint and one of Toei's best efforts.
