some of the models from Enter the Nighbird. Why not finish it out?
To make the Nightbird's entry into Autobot HQ more impressive, the writers added a cover to the top of the volcano. It makes sense, Laserbeak flew in and grabbed Sparkplug back in The Ultimate Doom, so why not add in some extra security? They also added in cameras and motion sensors. Smart to get rid of the 'open door policy.' I really wanted to do an extra page on the crashed Autobot HQ in The Complete Ark, and these two images would have gone in there. What held me back was no really high quality version of the front entrance. I had a nice shot of the volcano, which I did sneak in, but felt that to not have the main entrance (except for a snowy version) defeated the point.
The real stand-out on this page, though, is probably the Decepticon base, shaped like their sigil. Floro Dery spoke fondly of designing this, and I have to say he did an outstanding job.
NEXT UP… RETCON!
