This was the final original Transformers content from Marvel UK and was a text story in the last annual. I have turned it into a comic strip. The cover was designed to feel like an old school cover, hence the limited colour palette. Anyhoo, come along and get a free comic from yours truly.
The attached images are all going to be prizes at this year’s Scotcon (see previous blog post). They are Kreo based reinterpretations of recent Transformers covers using the Regeneration One 96 blank cover as the basis.
Cover 1 based on RG1 96, which was in turn based on Transformers: Generation 2 Issue 5. Original covers by Guido Guidi and Derek Yaniger
Cover 2 based on RG1 Issue 80.5 Original cover by Andrew Wildman
Cover 3 based on RG1 96. Original cover by Geoff Senior
Cover 4 based on Transformers Issue 19. Original cover by Herb Trimpe
Cover 5 based on Transformers: MTME Issue 1 which was in turn based on Justice League Issue 1. Original covers by Nick Roche and Kevin Maguire
The date: 29th – 30th March 2014
The place: Glasgow
The Stardub team, along with TMUK’s finest and anyone else who wants to come along shall be gathering for our annual Scottish gettogether. During said weekend, there will be booze. Trips to toy and comic shops (and the comic mart in Glasgow) inbetween the booze.
There will also be some dreaded competitions which will let you win a fabulous prize or two, also anyone who turns up will get a free copy of the printed edition of my comic adaptation of Another Time and Place. Another Time and Place is the last prose text story and the last original Transformers material from Marvel UK.
If you plan on coming let us know by chiming in on the comments here or via twitter or hitting up the Scotcon thread over at the TMUK Forum.
Continuing on from Episode 64 – a sweary intro from Andu prompts Rolph to talk about The Smugglers from Doctor Who. Which holds the honour of being the least remembered Doctor Who story of all time, the discussion runs the way of the Hartnell era and missing episodes in general.
Our team then turn their attentions to Zenith, the popstar superhero from the pages of 2000ad as created by Grant Morrison and Brendan McCarthy and Steve Yeowell. Andu splurged on a copy of the limited edition (271 of 1000) HC run last year, and no he isn’t upset that there will be softcover editions later this year.
We then revisit the Hogmanay Hell that Andu endured (along with Stunt Ralph’s, Karl and Nick) in the form of the DVD of the film “The Car”. Rest assured gentle listeners, your pain is insignificant compared to Andu’s.
To cleanse the palette the team round off the episode with another dramatic reading from Zardoz!
It’s an uncommonly topical installment of the Stardub podcast this time out, as our titanic hosts Rolph and Andu speak to you from the Baines Cave about their recent cinematic ventures.
First off the blocks is the Robocop remake, where Samuel L Jackson auditions for a James Brown biopic while Detroit City’s finest becomes, part man, part machine, all cop. Or perhaps all Cop-Out? You see what we did there?
Then on to the absolute joy that is the Lego movie, don’t worry there are ZERO spoilers about the Lego film, as you need to see it knowing as little as possible, but trust us. It’s going to be the most fun you will have in the cinema this year, or perhaps ever. We also get sidetracked about the unfortunate looks one gets for daring to see a family film, without having a family, but being in possession of a beard and glasses. (It’s not the first time, remember Bagpuss Live!).
Bookending the cinematic chat, Andu tears Games Workshop a new hole for Warhammer Visions, their newest publication and then is True Friended…by a most unexpected source!
