Welcome to the General Discussion area where just about anything goes! This area is designed to discuss all matters and does not necessarily have to be Transformers related. Please keep topics relevant.
It was mentioned back on page 2, but to reiterate:
Maximum Carnage was like my THING back in the day, even though I only had like four issues of the series. I got the game, the strategy guide even, and it's probably why I thought(and still do, to a certain extent) that Venom was a good guy...
And I have since collected the entire comic series. It's not groundbreaking and maybe a little too long, but eh, it made a mark on me.
But that wasn't my only thing...
I looked for the JP mark, I spent hours upon hours with the JP Command Center I got for Christmas. Dinosaurs are awesome as is, but Jurrassic Park gave a unifying identity to them for me, and made them easier to integrate into my toy universe, if that makes any sense. Jurrassic Park forever, even if the best one is still the original...
And now for something more somber but memorable:
That commercial didn't impact my descision to not do drugs any more than anything else, but I certainly remember the message.
Speaking of which, are there really as many blatant public service announcements anymore? I mean yeah they have a certain cheese to them, but hey if it gets a message across and people remember, is it so bad?
If you've read Exodus, wanna read the War For Cybertron comic? PM me.

MiB, Godzilla, Big Guy and Rusty, and Ghostbusters (both "Real" and "Extreme") were some of my favorite cartoons growing up. I adore the art styles they had. Incidentally, the artist Fil Barlow worked on most of them.
Too bad movies don't get a spin-off cartoon anymore. Kinda curious as to how Bayformers would look with the above stylizing.
Don't miss that at all. I'm starting to see and hear commercials now though about how slow DSL is. Bah, I can wait a few seconds here or there. Information seems to be flowing so fast these days it's hard to appreciate it.
