Never in the cartoon or comic?

Over the last 25 years the Transformers have appeared in media from the exquisite to the scribbled and been licensed to the responsible and the... Pat Lee. Discussion of all the branches of TF media within!

Never in the cartoon or comic?

Post by Señior's Covenant » Thu Aug 18, 2005 2:54 pm

Has this been done before/recently? Ever since the News Forum kicked in this one slowed down heavily. Maybe the News Forum could be located as the first item?

Anyways, on to the question at hand. Who was present as a toy or character otherwise but never made an episode or an issue?

The Monsterbots or whatever they were called right? Quickswitch?

The "i" in "Señior" from "Señior's Covenant" is intentional and part of a stupid & cheesy inside joke from '02. Thank you for your concern.

Quickswitch was one story in the UK comic. He's busy kicking the **** out of some Meccanibals whilst Darkwing and Dreadwind get drunk. Classic story.

Hubcap was the only one of the first three years' worth of toys never to make the official media. Until DW, that is. Even then, I'm not sure. And for "not sure" read "don't care".

Trannis was mentioned once, but he never really made a appearence. But he's a non-toy character so...

Is the question about Monsterbots caused by what it says in their profiles? Cause they're wrong on that, really. ;)

Profiles are. :) Grotusque and Repugnus' profiles were printed in issues 76 and 78 respectively and they state that these are their first appearances (as in: they were never shown in comic before). Which is obviously wrong.

In the Japanese Masterforce series, yes. He wasn't released in the west as a toy, though.

which is probably just as well, the comic was becoming flooded with characters as it was, at the rate the micro's were being released it would have become saturated (not that it hadn't anyway)... and the constant introduction of new characters seems to tend to drive readers away...

oh, that's what did happen isn't it? :o

If you're interested, I drew and wrote a TFU-style profile for poor Doublecross, I never understood why he was left out.

On the matter of left-out BOts/Cons, I miss ever seeing Sixshot in the comics. Such a waste of potential. THough I'mglad Mad Brick couldn't finish the idea with him. What was the deal with the Sixshot tank Octane uses in V2 and the Dinobots later steal it? It couldn't have been him..
