I'd forgotten he was in the prequel-comic, other than that I don't think Quark was described in the book though was he?dubbilex wrote:Yeah, but the fact that the Spinisters all look the same makes it impossible to argue they're unrelated. Neither Quark's appearance in the Eugenesis comic prologue or his description in the novel are anything like MTMTE Quark's. Nor does he change into a microscope. He's not a scientist. The only thing they share is a name, and that name's just a pre-existing word in the English language. Ditto all that for Fulcrum. Rung, I'll grant you, but he was just a blink-and-you'll-miss-it name drop, more reference than character.
Yeah, whilst I think Denyer is probably right about the intent it could have been phrased better.I'm referring to moments like this: "Death’s Head wrenched the Decepticon’s arm from its socket. It dissolved the moment it hit the
water. ‘Now we’re even, yes?’" I can't picture how that would work if Galvatron's still in a Pretender shell.
My personal nit-pick is it's not very consistent over whether the Transformers are using human dates (which is fine as a translation conversion) or Cybertronian. Switching between "Cycles" and the Georgian calender makes Prime having a clue what Nightbeat means when he says it's 2012 seem really odd.
I wish you people would stop pointing out things I missed, it's making me look like I don't know what I'm talking about. :0Denyer wrote: 2007. It's also in the 2001 book. On that note, IIRC (I can dig back into email if really wanted) there are minor differences between the print edition and those files.
That would be awesomes.Will take snaps of the original foreword, etc. if of any interest.
