Last week, I uploaded the models I had from Desertion of the Dinobots, Part 1. This week, I finish out part two.
Part one gave us a nice survey of some Earthly structures. This time, we had to Cybertron! We'd previously seen the surface of Cybertron, in episodes like More than Meets the Eye and Divide and Conquer. This time, we go much deeper, seeing some mining pits and computer screens.
Two models that almost made it into the books were an interior shot of Swoop's chest, which looks somewhat primitive to me, and a Decepticon Drone. Not sure why he didn't make it in, probably just not enough room to squeeze him in.
Actually, this is one that I dearly wish I had the full model pack for. We get to see some of the history of Ancient Cybertron, and get models to match. There were also other type of drones employed by Shockwave, and I wish I had their model sheets too. Perhaps some day, I'll find it! Till then, wish me luck, and I'll continue to seek. (Also to strive, to find, and not to yield.)
On a semi-related note, one of my all-time favorite authors, Peter David, has asked a question on his blog that I think is worth repeating. In a nutshell, Crazy 8 Press is going to be going live soon, with e-books as well as possibly print-on-demand. It's a way for authors and readers to directly connect, and it's definitely worthy of support.
The question, though, is how much is an original novel of some 100K words by Peter David worth in this format. The broader question, I suppose, is how much is an ebook worth as compared to a printed edition. Feel free to chime in here, or to head over to his blog to weigh in.
