He was in the background in the first Ark scene of Club 'Con (Underbase Saga, part 1).

Which Decepticon appeared in the same scene?

Runamuck - totally forgetting that A: he's a Con, B: he should be laying underwater, deactivated by Circuit Breaker....

In G1, who was the tallest decepticon toy? (UK and Japanese toys included).

But I don't always know that I have the right answer, now do I? Even tho I think it looks a bit silly, I'll post a question in every post.

There's a new question, wich was posted prior to your... uh.. question? Btw.

The name of the neutral turned bridge was Spanner. :o

But lads, Devastator is far from the strongest of the combiners. The title just has to go to Piranacon, the guy that can allegedly lift 400 000 tons... :eek: Oddly enough, his tech-spec only gives a grade of 9 in strength...

http://www.ntfa.net/universe/english/in ... =Piranacon

Altho, by going from the tech-specs, Devastator has a grade of 10 in strength, his profile doesn't give any more info than that "he's incredibly strong", and granted, if comparing to a regular TF, he is.

Also, Predaking, can be said to be the second strongest combiner that there is, big as a fookin' hangar-bay (in just about every media, he's bigger then the others) and can lift 500 tons without straining a single circuit. He also has a level 10 in strength. Trust me lads, a lot of thing is pointing towards that these two newer lads are much stronger than the prototype-unit Devastator.

The answer is therefore: Piranacon. (or if one has to go by tech-spec only, Predaking.)

What kind of rank does Sky Lynx hold in the Autobot hierarchy?

Landmine, Crosshairs (? - wasn't seen ever again)... um. Must be more, cause Hot Rod said so, but Chromedome, Kup, Blurr, and Getaway were all seen alive later. Guesses?

Or Hot Rod can't count... :D

Let's see...

Landmine, Crosshairs, Joyride, Getaway, Chromedome, Blurr (If a kick in the chin counts as deactivation).

Next - name all the Transformers - all generations - and one Gobot who transform into A-10 Warthog planes! :D (I just got most of these toys myself and they look cool put in a row).

Hint: there's 6 of them not counting the so far unreleased Cybertron Wing Saber.

Not really, since I don't know what an A-10 Wart-hog plane is.

To complicated question for me that. :o

Err, there's Powerglide, his ehobby repaint "Bad Boy"(?), one of the Decepticon Air Strike Patrol (StormCloud was it? i always get those buggers mixed up, the blue one!), ok that's three from G1...
More recently, two of the bots from Energon's Superion were Warthogs (don't know their names, sorry) and Cyberton's WingSaber was one too...

that's 6!


OK, my turn... who's motto was "I stand my ground .... I accept any challenge ..... I am hungry for conflict"?

Aha, that would be the ever-lovely Overlord.

We've been given the names of two Autobots who later became Optimus Prime (different continiuities). What are they?

It was Tailwind from the patrol, but that's close enough--- I didn't count japanese toys, so the current 6 was Powerglide, Bad Boy (the real Gobot), Tailwind, his Bot repaint Hot House, and the two Energon Aerialbots Skyshadow and Terradive. I didn't count Wingsaber as he isn't released yet to my knowledge. But your choices are good too.

And Predabot, an A10 warthog is like this:

Image

All-purpose ground support plane that has lots of heavy weapons. If I recall right, it was used in Vietnam already, for napalm bombing, so it's an old model.

Hold on, I count two. Hound and Wheeljack.

Assuming I'm right:

Name the two British TV shows which Starscream tuned into in one of the annuals.

Coronation Street and Doctor Who.

(btw I think Hound must have had a nasty knock in 'Icarus Theory')

Which ONE of these presidents has NOT appeared in a TF comic - Ronald Reagan, George Bush Sr, Bill Clinton, George Bush Jnr? Plus name the stories that starred the other 3!

I believe it is Bill Clinton. :o Ronald Reagan appeared in "And there Shall come a leader", George Bush appeared in "All this.. and Civil War" George Bush Jr appeared in G1V1: Prime Directives.

Am I right? If so: In what age-group was Josie Beller when she got paralysed by the electric surge that Shockwave caused?

EDIT:

Ok, here's attempt #2. :o

Ronald Reagan: Plague of the Insecticons (Aha! Now I know why I got that wrong, it's cause that and "And there shall come... a leader!" was in the same annual)

George Bush Sr: All this... and Civil War.

Bill Clinton: Gaah! No matter how I look, I can't find any issue that he's been in. And I've checked pretty much all of the Tales Of Earth storyline from G2, wich would have been during his first term.

George W Bush Jr: Well, since Spidey just shot down my theory that he is the president in G1V1, then I have no idea where he's appeared. I might acctually have to look at G1v2...

EDIT2: A quick look at G1v2 #1-3 reveals that there was no american president in that volume. And I've checked most of G1v3 too, no president there either. Time to check some of the Marvel stuff again.

Ron appeared in Plague of the Insecticons.
Dunno about the others though.

[edit]Was there a president in DD GI Joe V TF V1? Was that Bush Jnr?
