Turned off by the chromed parts of Generations Jetfire? If you don't want to pay extra for a chrome-free Takara release, you may not have to resign yourself to just living with it. Cheetimus of Cheets' Tweaks has posted a video showing an easy and relatively safe method to remove vac metal chrome from plastic using two commonly available chemical products, first removing the clear red paint layer, then dissolving the chrome itself until bare plastic is all that's left. Check out the video embedded below!
Facebook has given us an early gift and posted the 30th anniversary alternate cover for MTMTE 33 - due to hit shops next Wednesday! - on their Facebook page. This cover features art by Sarah Stone and depicts Tarn hovering over Fulcrum as liquid energon drips from his face. This scene is Sarah's homage to "season 1" of MTMTE, specifically calling back to the "Scavengers" two-parter that comprised issues 7 and 8 of the title. ...and which may very well tie in to the issue this cover is attached to. Check it out below, and check back here next week where we'll bring you the first review of issue 33!
Thanks again to Ebay seller Lena88a we we now have images of Transformers Cloud TFC-D02 Starscream action figure that will be offered by Takara Tomy in Japan. Get a look at the robot mode of this figure that is based on the Generations Voyager Blitzwing figure mold. Read on to see the in-hand images of the figure after the jump.
Brought to you by the same auctioneer who is selling Generations Chromia,
we now have images of Transformers Cloud Shockwave, and the TakaraTomy Legends release of the Voyager-class Whirl he's based on. (Both slightly mistransformed.) Shockwhirl is looking pretty nice, all told, and if those are tampographs and not stickers on Legends Whirl, that's certainly a tick in its favor. Keep reading to see photos!
The iTunes store has updated with the first preview for Robots in Disguise 33, due to hit shops on September 24th, and the quick three pages treat us to the return of a familiar face who's been absent from the series for quite a long time now. Just after the preview went live, Sarah Stone who is contributing to the art for this issue posted clean versions of the panels seen in the preview, without text or other visual effects. We've mirrored both the preview and the clean pages, so keep reading to see them!
