Inferno: For the Royalty!

Posted by:
Perceptor at 2008-02-05 5:17 pm   (site update)
He's one of the most iconic, well-written & fan loved bad guys in Transformers!  In every fight, he either won convincingly or was blown to scrap trying (and you had to love him for that!)  You'll find an all new character page for INFERNO ready in the 1997 section.  Included you'll find exclusive excerps from the Beast Wars story bible written by Larry DiTillio and Bob Forward with character profile, abilities, and relationship insights.  Thanks also to Byrerprime for additional character info compilation including bibliography of significant appearances and screen captures galore!

For those curious about the toy photos, I took these pictures of Inferno at a rare opportunity I had last summer.  It was located near a pond where a "controlled burn" had just been completed to kill off non-native vegatation species, a measure often done to allow the growth of native wild flowers and prairie grasses.  Anyway, with all those mostly burned pond reeds in the background, I just had to take advantage and start taking photos of this favorite character of mine!  Hope you enjoy!

He is the only one who can call megatron a queen and get away with it.

OMG, this post wasn't up 30 seconds and you posted a comment! HA! Nice job. Anyway, he didn't get away with calling Megs 'my queen' for long! :) Nothing that a little central processor reprogramming couldn't fix!

I freaking loved Inferno! Thanks for putting together such a awesome page!

Nice, and without getting "ants in your pants" while rewriting this!

Awesome pix K. The reeds look like burnt trees behind him. Perfect opportunity.

I remember setting my alarm for like 4:30 AM when new Beast Wars shows used to air. I also remember nearly crapping my pajamas with glee the moment that Inferno hoisted himself out of that stasis pod. That was so awesome.

I really don't know a lot of Beast Wars and Machine formers, I remember when I was younger I did watch a couple episodes but I was to young to really know what it was. I wish I was 12 then like I am now.

@Perceptor:Yeah,lol. and that was AFTER doubting for a while what to comment with.
I was bored out of my skull so i was randimly toggling trough my favorite transformers web-sites.

I just GOT to quote this guy:

"Ha ha ha, fool! Pain is my friend. Let me introduce YOU to it."

"BURN, Maximal!"

"For the glory of the Royalty!"

"As you command, my queen."

"Defend the colony!" (repeat in weird voies)

"Ha ha, if it's battle you want? Let it begin."

"I don't need a weapon to destroy YOU, traitor!"

Spiders! Enemies of the colony! Inferno, Terrorize!"

"Burn in the fires of Inferno!"

"Coming, my queen!"

"I must return to the Royalty at once!"

HA! I love the shameless plug for the disks hidden so well on the page. :D
Perceptor said,  - 2008-02-06 13:37:40
SHAMELESS! Ha, yes. It was nice of me to *hide* them SO well wasn't it?!
Human Error said,  - 2008-02-06 13:46:36
Well played, Perceptor, Well played!
Sabrblade said,  - 2008-02-06 15:44:14
HE, what do mean by "shameless plug for the disks hidden so well on the page."? What's that mean? What's a "shameless plug"?
Human Error said,  - 2008-02-06 16:17:59
Ha Ha! if you look at the link below (its a screen capture of the part of the page in question) the links highlighted are links, so if one were so inclined, they could pick up the golden discs. they are available for order at the big bad toy store for $15.99 and are currently in stock! ;)

and as for a shameless plug: its a nice way to say that they are blatantly advertising such as i did above in this post. i just found it humorous is all.

LOVE the bio! Perceptor and Byer Prime do an awsome job on profiles! I however agree that Inferno is insane to trust Megatron so completely. He's just like Lugnut! There's always one...
Perceptor said,  - 2008-02-06 16:51:15
HE is that what the text of our screen looks like on your computer?? Wow, that looks aweful. Wonder how I can fix that...?

Thanks Starscream, but credit where credit is due. The first portion of the bio is actually written by the cartoon authors themselves, Larry DiTillio and Bob Forward. :)
Human Error said,  - 2008-02-06 17:32:54
Wait, whats wrong with it? Its not really that blurry if thats what your talking about.

Edit: I did also enlarge the text for the purposes of the pic

One more quote:

"ATTACK!!!" (a few more seconds and... "BOOM", he's blasted)
