Just saw, Ironman for my birthday and went out for a sundae bigger than my head. Feeling a bit sick to my stomach, but I'll recover. I totally dig this guy's alterations. Wow, he does some great work. The youngest Lukis Brother gets another year older. Not feeing so young anymore.

I saw Ironman the day it came out and I thought in some parts it was better than Transformers with :more comedy, had action in the beginning of the movie, and a much better way to kill the bad guy.

Did you guys know Ironman and the Transformers fought along side eachother using his "Giant Armour".

Giant Armor:
Was used by Tony in #3 of the non-Canon New Avengers/Transformers miniseries. The size of a Transformer, it allowed Ironman to go head-to-head with the invading Decepticons. But due to the massive energy needs, his armor would quickly run out of power, until recharged by Optimus, Jazz, and Bumblebee.

Are you talking about that Transformers/Avengers cross-over series by Marvel a few months back? That story was so gawd awful brutal. The artist was mediocre at drawing humans, but his renditions of robots really needed help. Worse than that was the story which was so horrendously bad I couldn't bring myself to read it even though I forced myself to buy every issue, just because it said Transformers on the cover.

Oh, I don't care how good Ironman is, nothing is or every will be \better than Transformers (unless maybe TF2, 3 or 4~!) To suggest otherwise around these parts is blaspheme!!!

BTW, those alts pix are the bomb! Wow very nice paint jobs on all of them. I particularly like the sculpting work done on Overbite. Very nice.

I never would have thought of using Longview as Cosmos, but it is great! I might pick up a Longview and make one too.

It never ceases to amaze me that everyting Beachcomber shows up, he has that golden hand. Maybe it's because it's the most important thing that ever happened Beachcomber, maybe it's because it's the only episode people remember him from, but nonetheless, I always get a chuckle. They looked great, I really liked the Ravage gallery with Galvatron and Laserbeak.

Happy Birthday, Jason.

1# Happy Birthday Jason!!!! Looks like you got some KILLER gifts! (Heh heh) So how old are you? I agree with TriPredRavage. The Ravage gallery is FANTASTIC! Shinobitron has done it again! I'm hoping to customize some of my own collection...but in the mean time,it's cool to look at other people's work. Unfortunatly,that's 2# job. He's the artist.

2# Congrads Jason! I'm sorry I can't give you a gift,so here's a-link: (Sorry it's so long)

Great customs!

How old am I? The " news poster of the week" award goes to the first one who guesses correctly or closest. One guess per person. Lukis Bros don't count.
TriPredRavage said,  - 2008-05-14 17:11:05
27. I win.

No fair, anyone who remembers the About Us page could just go look at your Year of Birth and calculate your age on the first guess.
Jason said,  - 2008-05-14 18:10:20
Ah, yes... The about us page. Nice work TriPredRavage, but I'm guessing that it wasn't exactly a guess. I should have conveniently taken that page down for a day or two. Oh well. Hey, TriPredRavage is the " news poster of the week" Yeah!
Jason said,  - 2008-05-14 18:18:06
Update: I've just added a couple more pictures of Overbite's robot mode.
TriPredRavage said,  - 2008-05-14 19:31:07
Yeah, NUMBAH ONE!!! lol

Sorry, I couldn't resist. I just thought about it as a scavenger hunt and went about the best way I could think of to find the answer.

Yes Perceptor, I am talking about that one. I know it was crappy but it was one of the few comic books I ever bought and I thought some people would like to know about it.

Liking the Avengers and especially Iron Man, I enjoyed the crossover. The plot was great even if the writing was not. I didn't care for the huge Iron Man or the art, but it was a good try. Wolverine was awesome in the story. Happy belated Jason. Creeping up on the big three-oh!
