Everyone here raving about how awesome this would be and how badly it needs to happen. But if they actually made this, everyone would jump on the hate train for it the same way they did with the Millennium falcon Chewy and Han Solo, so I don't wanna hear all this jibber jabber.

I think the big difference here is that it wasn't made to try to look like James Kirk or Spock. They did kind of screw up the appearances of the Han Solo/Chewy MF transformer, but they did what they could with the source material. With SWTF, the alt modes were already set and they had to fit the mech mode to it. WIth normal TF, there is some room to tweak and shape the alt modes based on the needs of the bot mode- there is no "set alt mode".

True, I can see some of the difference there. I guess picky TF fans just get on my nerves some times :lol:

See, I liked the Millennium Falcon Transformer Takara recently did, loved it.

But also, this right here is the concept so many people WANTED Star Wars to take with Transformers: Turn the ships into the characters. Fort Max now as the USS Enterprise just makes it so much cooler. Can't say I disagree either, and having read the comic, it is a cool thing for sure!

Challenge accepted, dude. See mah picture.

Warp engines in the middle, engineering hull split in halves at the connector to the saucer, warp nacelle struts as ramps on sides of the saucer and saucer is like a command station. Senser dish works like a big antenna. Yeah, that's the shuttle bay end of the secondary pointing up, so some parts forming going on. My mspaint skills ain't the bomb but you get the general idea. Never said it would be a great fortress but it's more like a moon base castle somethin.

Shame there was no effort in the Trypticon / Klingon Battlecrusier design

Thanks to the good folks over at Flickering Myth, we now have the five page preview of the penultimate issue in IDW's Star Trek Vs. Transformers miniseries!

This issue sees the continued clash of titans, one born out of a klingon cruiser (looking like Trypticon) and the other being Fortress Tiberius (Fortress Maximus head on a transformed Starship Enterprise controlled by Captain Kirk!).

This issue is out today (16th January) and should be available where all good comics are sold.

We have embedded the images below for your convenience.

IDW wrote:(W) John Barber, Mike Johnson (A) Philip Murphy (CA) Priscilla Tramontano

With the Enterprise disabled by the Klingon-Decepticon alliance, things look dire for Spck, Optimus Prime, and the landing team to save the day. But with the Autobots' help, can Captain Kirk come up with a solution to save the day from a massive Cybertronian threat?

The Transformers '80s cartoon series meets Star Trek: The Animated Series in a no-holds-barred Saturday morning mash-up for the ages!

i have enjoyed this fun little series...

but a few things i would've done.

Fort Max should either of had his toy model number as the ship registration(C-114), 1984 or 1987.

Trypticon should've had a KBC design

IDW could've used this as an opportunity to have Chekov's first ST TAS appearance (whether it be canon/fanon)
