No problemo, gothsaurus.

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.

Thanks for the English translations of the Trainbots' names, JelZe. I always wondered what their names meant.

The Trainbots were the only ones w/o English names, right?


Nope, the Dino Force from Victory had non-English names as well:

- Gouryu ("Mighty Dragon", T-Rex)
- Gairyu ("Armored Dragon", Ankylosaurus)
- Doryu ("Earth Dragon", Stegosaurus)
- Kakuryu ("Horned Dragon", Triceratops)
- Rairyu ("Thunder Dragon", Apatosaurus/Brontosaurus)
- Yokyryu ("Winged Dragon", Pteranodon)
"I have Autism and I'm proud of it!" - Myself

Top 5 Priorities:

1) BW Neo X-7 Elphaorpha
2) RiD Grimlock, Hightower & Wedge
3) Energon Sledge, Duststorm, Bonecrusher & Wideload
4) Universe 2003 Night Slash Cheetor
5) BW Convobat (red) & Megalligator (purple)

The resident Rewind... well, half of one :lol:

This week's Ark Addendum update takes us back to the Japanese Masterforce series with an animation model of Cyberton leader Hawk's car. Be sure to check out Jim Sorenson's blog Disciples of Boltax for more interesting Transformers related information.

See, the leader of the Cybertrons, Metalhawk, had a human disguise, Hawk. Naturally, Hawk needed to get around, so he drove this nifty little two-seater.

We have a couple of updates for Jim Sorenson's blog, Disciples of Boltax. First up we have his weekly Ark Addendum Update, which features backgrounds from the G1 episode Mircrobots. The Autobots are shrunk down and sneak into Megatron's body to disable the Cybertronian artifact known as the Heart of Cybertron. We get nice a background depicting Megatron's inner workings. Take a look below then click here to visit Disciples of Boltax for Jim's commentary.

Next, Monzo has posted a set of storyboards from the G1 pilot More Than Meets The Eye that originate from a series of Heritage Auctions that took place back in 2003. We've mirrored one of them below, it features a rather "cute" version of Ravage. Click here view the rest of the series.

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.
