Well, after a couple of months off, I managed to find the time to put together one more of these. Not too many left, unless I find a new source!
This week (month?), I bring you the models from The Autobot Run. It's a good episode and it has especially interesting models. There's the Transfixatron, of course, but I'm especially partial to the model sheets labeled "metal crushing machine." The wiki makes fun of it as a tentacle monster, but it's really quite a frighting design.
I'm also rather partial to the idea of setting the episode in an old west ghost town. Why? Why not!
Here's a bit of trivia for you, by the by. The Transfixatron was originally called the Satsitron. That could be a typo on the model sheet for Stasitron, or it could just be a flurry of creativity on the part of Donald Glut. (This trivia note appears on the wiki. Did I put it there? I don't imagine there are too many other people out there with model sheets.)
NEXT UP… RETCON!
