Favourite Transformer

    There's been a few threads about Transformers popping up recently and after seeing the favourite Turtle thread I thought I might start this one. Well I'm bored...

    Grimlock
    Grimlock Original
    Grimlock Transformed

    My favourite by far. He is too funny, the dialogue he has is great. And as he says himself "Grimlock is king!" :D

    Oh finding pictures of him was harder than I expected it to be.

    Actually had 4 cassette transformers

    Ravage: Puma
    Rumble

    I liked Ramjet and good god I've forgotten what the red lamborghini was called (and the yellow one too). Sorta liked the porsche police car, jazz I think.

    When I was a kid I had all the transformer comics from issue 1 to 90 and my mother threw them all out. I'm sure they would have been worth something now too, as well as being a damn good read.

  • Closed Accounts Posts: 1,092 ✭✭✭Pigman


    Sixshot the Ninja Consulant is my favorite! (yes he's a real transformer!)

    He's some stupid fuc.ker who appears in Soliders of the Sky (takara series) and is as crap as hell but I never laughed so much as at the moment he introduces himself to Ultra Magnus with that dumbass name of his....



    Ninja Consulant : "You Autobots are a bunch of fools! Don't even think about winning this battle!"

    Ultramaguns : "Just who do you think you are? Where are you from?"

    Ninja Consulant : "HAHAAHAHAH! Alright, listen up! I'm the ninja consultant for the decepticons! My name is sixshot! Now you know who I am , look out!"

    Ninja Consulant Shoots ultramagnus

    Ninja Consulant : "HAHAAHAHAH! This is my way of doing things! I never waste my time talking" <- eh then what are you doing right now?

    Ultramaguns : "Is that right? I'm Ultramagnus the Autobots local commander here! I want you to see this!"

    Ultramagnus shoots Ninja Consulant but misses!

    Ninja Consulant : "How come you missed me?"

    Ultramagnus : "HAHAHAHA! This is my way of doing things! I fight the way soldiers should!"

    Ninja Consulant : Talk is cheap my friend! Lets see some real action!"

    Everybody starts shooting at each other. But they seem to have bought their weapons at the same shop as the A-team cos no-ones getting hit!
