You should think of a myspace account as a funny tshirt slogan, and myspace as a pub, and the other people on it as coils of wire, pulsing slightly as they whisper the names of the dead.

You should think of a facebook account as your face, and facebook as a huge mincing machine, and the other people on it as a huge dead mass exerting their gravitional pull on you from just behind the mincing blades.

You should think of a twitter as a little plate with some kitchen roll spread out on it and dampened and each twitter account as a single spire of cress slowly rising out of it and each comment on it as some kind of cancerous growth on your stalk and your twitter feed is where your growths and some of your neighbours growths intertwine and draw you nearer even though the last thing you ever wanted to do was be near them or anyone else anywhere in the world, and especially not on this plate, on this window ledge by the back door.

And by 'Quorn' of course I mean a massive transforming robot, which I just collected from the postroom at work. Photos to follow this evening, assuming I get the thing home safely. I might get the bus.

It is neither of those, but you're close - it is Fortress Maximus, the second-biggest Transformer ever. He was the biggest until a month or two ago, when they brought out a new version of Metroplex which is ever so slightly bigger. I don't think Fort Max was ever given a full release in the UK, though I have a very vague memory of seeing one in Boots of all places, and just the one box took up an entire shelf by itself.

I never had a Jetfire, but I had a Robotech plane of a very similar type. One of my friends had Jetfire and we loved all the red armour bits you got with him.

i actually feel sorry for Megatron, i want him to succeed. I think i love him a bit. When they found the insecticons i was happy for him finding some new friends.

It makes me wonder what the decepticons would do if they actually won, got all the energon they needed, defeated the autobots and ruled the universe

Season 3 might be the best of all, if you can get over the sudden changeover in cast, the frequently horrid animation, and the clanky clank music.

i swear some of the autobots have had their name changed already. I'm sure Gears had a different name at the start

they are a bit rubbish compared to the cool decepticons though, aren't they

Ves, poor Megatron. He really doesn't know what to do at all.

Are you familiar with the Transformers Wiki? It's covered all the original cartoon in extensive (and frequently hilarious) detail, as well as just about everything else Transformery.

I've seen clips of a very badly animated Transformers episode ("Child's Play") where there are some amazing mistakes made by the animators and camera operator. Here's the worst part of it:

If you want terrible animation, 'Carnage in C-Minor' is where it's at. Or anything animated by AKOM, really.

I found this which is a fan-dub of the Headmasters series. Is it almost as amazing as the original Engrish dub.

Also the 1980s Omni Productions dubs are the most amazing thing ever.

Proof

We did design some new transformers but all I came up with were different coloured versions of Optimus Prime, with silly names. Like Optimus Lime
