We have a couple of updates from 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.

This week's Ark Addendum update revisits the G1 episode Microbots with a look at the animation models for of a couple of the creatures the micronized Autobots encountered within Megatron's body. Below we see Megatron's Brain Impulses and Electro Sanitizers. Jim notes the Impulses ended up looking relatively the same, but the Electro Sanitizers were completely different in the cartoon.

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.

That is one scary looking Decepticon operating table. Could you imagine being an Autobot spy, getting captured? YIKES! Very nice artwork.
