Postby Va'al » Thu Jun 11, 2015 11:41 am

Motto: "Till All Are Pun!"
After yesterday's Josh Burcham Wrecker print, fellow Seibertronian podcaster xRotorstormx notifies us of another IDW artist Transformers print to make its debut at BotCon 2015's Artist Alley - Matt Frank, regular artist on Godzilla, and who worked on the acclaimed Spotlight: Trailcutter, offers fans an amazingly kaiju-esque Deathsaurus, with colours by Transformers regular colormancer Josh Perez. Check it out mirrored below!

YES! Matt Frank gets Deszaras! He wasn't a dragon in Victory, but a kaiju. A bird-based kaiju! :APPLAUSE: :APPLAUSE: :APPLAUSE:

Are that head and that body compatible, though? And would there be enough clearance room on the Darksteel body for Bakudora's horns to allow the head to be stored away in beast mode?

I wish I had them out of storage so I could check. Was hoping for a gaudy G2 Flamefeather out of the US version to go with Botcon Cindersaur. He needs a friend. Finish the trio with Sparkstalker out of Lazerback.

That is one sexy sexy mechanical construct. You know, thinking about the argument about gender in transformers, they have really always had gender. I mean they all sounded like men right? Had they all looked like Whirl or maybe Obsidian then I'd think they were gender less robots but really I think they always had gender so, having females seems like a forgone conclusion. At least too me.

SOAPBOX! ;)
I have been into transformers since 1984.
While I love G1 I also love new innovations and takes on the characters.
I prefer official Hasbro releases of stuff for the most part
I'm not a huge fan of Japanese original Transformers media or designs.
It's easier for me to say which are my LEAST favorite toy lines: Beast Machines, Robots in Disguise.
TFCon List: Classics Skywarp, General Optimus, BW Airrazor, Transmetal Tarantulus, Alternity Prime, Fire Convoy

Not to mention the fact that Whirl's holo-avatar is this helps your argument.

Still, when I read Whirl he sounds like a wiseguy to me, like a young Steve Buscemi.

BotCon 2015 Artist Alley - Transformers Propaganda JP Bove Prints, Plus Arcee by Casey Coller/Bove

Postby Va'al » Fri Jun 12, 2015 1:03 pm

Motto: "Till All Are Pun!"
We've seen a couple of these over the past year already, but the prints that IDW colourist John-Paul Bove will be bringing to BotCon 2015 have a certain something to them, and definitely could use a boost on our front page - plus, we get another Casey Coller/Bove collaboration, featuring Arcee!

Check out below three examples of the art deco inspired propaganda prints featuring Optimus Prime, the Seekers, and Soundwave, and make sure to pick one or all of them up next weekend, and take a look at the new addition to the previous Nautica and Blurr announcements.
