Maybe having the Magical Mark of Takara is what saved those survivors. Which would explain a lot...

Hmm... is Jhiaxus the actual first comic-character turned toy? Or would that be the Fallen?

I think the Jhiaxus-repaint of Beast Machine's Jetstorm came out earlier, aye?

Universe/RiD Jhiaxus was in 2003
The Titanium version of The Fallen was in 2007.
Then there's Cybertron Primus, of course.

However you slice it, it's as bogus as Bill and Ted's journey.

Just wait until Drift starts butchering the japanese language like a 15 year old fangirl. And just how did Roadbuster get so f**king fat?! :o

Indeed. :o
"But the Costa story featuring Starscream? Fantastic! This guy is "The One", I just know it, just from these few pages. "--Yaya, who is never wrong.

I just saw the cigar... christ on a bike.

Just so I'm clear - is that the same Kup who was on life support a year ago... you know - the one who didn't do upgrades?

Don't tell me - it happened off panel. You could fill volumes of books with all the stuff happening off panel in this series, and yet we have this weird position where **** all actually happens in the actual book.
