Logo finished and with Matt now.
I'm very pleased with how it came out. Great bit of teamwork from Nick and Jii with the title, when we were brainstorming on the zoom call a few weeks ago. Managed to get a working design relatively quickly and then I did the work with some back and forth with Matt till he was happy with the final version.
I can't find the other posts where people mentioned the Titanmaster figures they received with the zine. I am in awe of TITANMASTER PISS CYKILL! This is the toy I never knew I needed until now. I am stunned by your ability to not only cast the parts, but do all the pinning and screwing too.
The ramps look wonderful. I'll get Countdown out later and take photos. I am also very proud to be able to say I own the only flexible Micromaster ramp IN THE WORLD. This will have to be used in some way. Perhaps as a cunning Decepticon trap.
But that is only the tip of the iceberg in this package!
Bit delayed, but must share my thoughts on this years (as usual) wonderful 'Zine.
Very nice to have it come out in time for the online convention - this was the only thing that felt lacking last year whilst the TFNation things were going on, that I didn't have a fanzine to look through. So top points Matt for getting it all ready in good time (I know that you were waiting for articles etc quite late on). The other thing I noticed was of course how much thicker it was this year. RID is not one of my favourite parts of the franchise but the 'welcome' page as well as Karl's article just summed it all up as goofy ridiculous fun - which it was. Loved the fleshing out that various contributors did to the toy only characters from Bludgeon through to the Beast Machine/Machine Wars repaints and of course how the two Beast Leaders ended up infiltrating the toy line. Rich's story was of course lots of fun and I was honoured to be asked to draw the pictures. The history of the RID toyline was interesting and the guide to all the different Spychangers/Gobots was very useful. Lots of nice art (particularly the Mirage Spychanger) and toy photography too.
Well done Matt and everyone involved!
Must ask, are there still copies available in case anyone else is interested?
