Did you ever look at Generations Jetfire and think to yourself, "that toy doesn't have nearly enough chrome on it"? Well, The Malaysia branch of Hasbro Asia would seem to agree, as Planet Iacon has shared an image of a contest flyer to win a lucky draw version of the toy coated in silver chrome ...in addition to all the typically red chromed elements. Yes, now three lucky Malaysian fans could have the chance to win a Jetfire covered entirely in chrome! Check out the full size image below!
Sarah Stone has earned a lot of attention lately with her beautiful art style that many were introduced to by her work on the Windblade miniseries. Since then she's done alternate covers for many other issues. Today she's posted a step-by-step of her process, using the anniversary incentive cover from MTMTE 33 as an example. Keep reading to see the preview images along with Sarah's introduction and link back to her tumblr blog post!
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!
