I haven't finished listening to the podcast yet (I listen in increments on my work commute because transformer talk goes great with coffee), but I just wanted to say it is as awesome as it is hilarious that you named the podcast a random title from the comics. Genius.

Not necessarily random. The 48th podcast, the 48th chapter. :-B

So while Lambo may be a subsidiary of those companies, they at least don't have any connection to WWII or Nazis. If you buy into that, then we might not be any closer to licensed MP Bumblebee or Jazz.


I think it's all just hearsay that's been repeated throughout the fandom so many times that fans just assume it's fact. If someone can point me to an official statement by Hasbro, VW, or Porsche I'd be very appreciative of seeing some factual statements instead of rumors and hearsay.

Digging around Google, the rumor goes back to a statement apparently made "backstage" by Aaron Archer at OTFCC 2003. That's all I can find. So... official source, but still technically hearsay.
For the love of Primus, why must I be a Mississippi State fan?

Well that just makes way too much sense to be funny then. I retract my compliment, I'm done with this site. :michaelbay:

Hi Gents,
Another great cast!

The debate about the size of Optimus Prime relative to the other bots is interesting, but OP was definitely shown as taller than the other bots throughout the series.

Now of course sizes varied from episode to episode which can sort of throw off this argument:
ImageImage

Yay consistency.

But as mentioned per the size chart they were supposed to follow for the cartoon it's correct Most come up to about his crotch:
Image

Also from a realistic stand point, the size difference between a car and a semi makes sense to produce bots sized differently like that.

Here's a few other Shots showing some of the relative sizes of characters:
Image

Here's a few pics from the first 2 episodes of G1 that show a good comprison with the Arc Bots (I captured this from the a video):
Image
Image
Image

Of course take that as you will as based on the perspective (optimus closer to the camera) there' a shot of sideswipe as he walks in front of him that would lead you to believe sideswipe is both wider, and taller than OP.

Oh yeah and Alternity Cliff and Bee fit in perfectly, I was curious when I got my MP-10 and took this pic.. And in my opinion they look damn good (except their feet)!
Image
Also Sideswipe by the looks of the sideswipe comparison pictures, he'll be taller than bee and cliff, which is also fitting to me.

Sabrblade wrote:When speaking of how FOC Cliffjumper has Prime Cliffjumper's head design, someone mentioned a "combined continuity between all the shows". That's not what the Aligned Continuity is. It's a new continuity containing a mixture of elements and pieces taken from every pre-2010 Transformers series, rather than a mixture of entire series together.

The Super Link Misha figure that you guys were talking about was a 3rd party product. It wasn't made by Takara or Hasbro or any official company, but it did show up at that one Wonderfest like you guys said.

EDIT: Also, Ryan, what you said about Deszaras is true. He wasn't in Zone. But, you say he's pictured on a card that came with the tape? That's odd. Can you post a pic of it?


Cliffjumper: I must've missed that comment from someone. We found it humorous that the FE version was getting the G1 head and vice versa. Or maybe I didn't hear what someone said or I'm misunderstanding what you are saying.

Misha: Too bad about the Misha figure. I thought it was official. Which company made her?

Deszaras and Zone: I knew he wasn't in Zone, but it's been at least a few years since I've seen the cartoon so I didn't argue the point. As for the pics, ask and ye shall receive ...

Crazy, huh? The side with the art with Deszaras looks like some kind of game. Are you supposed to use the Rabbicrater as a game piece with dice?

hahha Thanks.
My dinning room table and my kitchen counter pull photo duty fairly often, and then the photo box if I'm taking more than a quick snap shot.

Completely agree with Jon 3.0's comment about the animation quality of 'Call of The Primitives'. That episode, along with 'Nightmare Planet' are, in my opinion, the best examples from the whole of G1.

"Predaking has the power. HE NEEDS NOTHING MORE!"

It's cool that Metroplex is going to be in Fall of Cybertron but I can't say I'm impressed with how. From what we've been shown his artillery strikes seem kinda pitiful for a city sized Transformer.

Is this the Wonderfest Misha in question?
http://tfsource.com/products/view/product_id/1630/

Its roughly in scale with Hasbro's Energon Kicker. I actually have it but havn't had any time to star working on it. :oops:
