|Welcome to the 'What's New' section. This here is a review of all the new and nifty stuff we've done to the website. It is also a long-term record of Jhiaxus' lame attempts to claim that he's going to update the site regularly.|
Updated the US Cartoon characters. Not much revised content, just added thumbnails to create galleries for this section.
The whole site has been revamped! Text, graphics, everything from woah to go! So scan around the website, look through the archive and revisit everything, you never know what you might find!
Updated Maccadam's page, modifying the text quite extensively.
Editted the text in Scrounge's page.
Extensive re-edit on Cyclonus/Krunix to fix up the fact that he was mistakenly identified as Nightstick, not Fracas.
Added an entry for the obscure Autobot scientist (of the insane variety) known as Flame.
Welp it's taken ages, but I've finally gotten out of my funk and here I am. Sorta. Maybe. Hopefully. New stuff WILL Be coming thick and fast, I promise (yeah, RIGHT, I ALWAYS promise that.) But right now you're interested in the current update, right?
Well, considering this is now the site of Jhiaxus and MONZO I've gotten rid of the old admin section and replaced it with an 'About Us' section, which will tell you about the guys behind the site, and the site itself.
PARTS!!! You've been wondering what Monzo could contribute to the site? Welcome to the parts section! Here you can find out about all those random weapons and gizmos that pop-out from TFs all through the G1 cartoon. ENJOY.
Well, what can I say? Cybertroncity was very good to me. But I've moved again. SIGH. This new place is not TOTALLY reliable but it is free. IF things don't load just hit refresh. If they still don't load wait until next time. If they STILL don't load it's my fault, contact me and I'll fix the problem.
Now that we've got a domain name, things should be easier. If I move again just come back to 'www.obscuretf.tk'. Easy.
It's a relatively big update. Added four new character entries. These are for UK characters who had titles rather than real names. Check them out. The Decepticon High Council, The Man of Iron, The Navigator, and Rodimus Prime's Student. Ha-ha! You can't ask for more than that, CHARACTER updates! Woo!
Updated the Emirate Xaaron page, to fix up the nature of his alt mode. This has been bothering Monzo for some time. Some of the main text has been modified too.
Made the banner on the main page look a bit better, and changed it so that now it includes both me and Monzo! Woo! (If you were wondering who the bald guy on the banner was, that's Monzo, or at least Monzo as he appeared in the Headmasters limited series.)
Did a whole bunch of administrative stuff to try and make the images on the site smaller without reducing quality significantly. You may or may not notice the difference.
Updated the Emirate Xaaron page, to fix a formatting problem. That's about it.
Haven't updated in over a month and when I do it's got nothing to do with obscure TFs. I suck so much. Basically I added a section devoted to me: to my art. Check out the new 'Fanart' section of the site.
Once again, extensive but sometimes boring updates. In terms of content, sadly I'm not going to be able to contribute much to the 'Obscure Characters' section for quite some time. (Still, that section is relatively complete, excepting the UK comics. Even then it pretty much covers all the obscures in my comic collection. Heh.)
Well, updated and added to a whole bunch of 'Other Stuff'. Mostly the 'Technology' section has been updated. All three pages have a slightly new format, and have new pictures and edited content. These pages are: Cartoon Cybertronian Technology, Cartoon Fleshling Technology and US Comic Cybertronian Technology.
Updated the 'What's Obscure?' section. But you probably don't care. The How To Use and Glossary of Terms are updated; mostly they've had things taken out rather than added in. Also revamped my 'links' section.
Changed the intro text on the Main Page of the website, credited Monzo as my co-creator on this website. Though I pretty much write everything he acts as my editor and supplies about 50 percent of all the images for the website.
Deleted the 'Toys' section from my page. What do I know from toys?
Edited the text in the 'Nightstalker' and 'Overlord' pages. Did minor, pretty much invisible, edits to every single entry. No new content however, so don't go reading every single page to try and find two lines of rewritten text. If I rewrite two lines, I'll link you to the character page here.
Editted the text of the Dion and Beta entries (what there is of it). But what's significant is that I've added 19 new shots of Beta, and 11 new shots of Dion. All taken by the kindly Monzo, of course. Also totally revamped the Alpha Trion page with a whole crap-load of new images!
Oddities! Added a little something to the shot of Bumblebee and Goldbug from Rebirth in the oddities section. DVD pictures! Also added an extra 'Shockwave with two hands' entry. It's on oddities page one. There's some minor edits to oddities page two, including much-requested comments on Starscream's colour scheme, in the 'Starscream with Fusion Cannon' oddity.
The 'Generics' section has undergone some minor changes. However the Transformers The Movie page has undergone far more than just minor changes. Hosts of new pictures have been added, including massive statues from the coronation of Starscream.
Haven't updated since my Scanner died on me. Damn. It's still not fixed, so updates will be slow.
Added a link to my host's page (cybertroncity.com) on the main page.
Added some new pictures, and minor amounts of new text, to the 'Cybertronian Cartoon Technology' page in the 'other stuff' section. The new pictures are to be found under the "Energy Conductors" and "Personality Components" headings. Also added a completely new entry for the Shock Blast Cannon.
Fixed a bunch of little problems here and there.
Well, I've finally bitten the bullet and done it. The Japanese Transformers section is no more! The Obscure Teams section is also gone! Bye-bye sections! Just so you know, the reason I removed the Japanese section is simply that I don't understand the Japanese series. I've seen bits and pieces of the Star TV dub, but not much more. Every piece of information about the Japanese series I have is second hand. That's no way to create a comprehensive site.
Let's see. I fixed the 'Optimus Prime's Face' oddities page. It was all stuffed up.
I also added a couple of new Generic Transformers entries; the movie and Autobot Run. I'll be working on this section of the page pretty extensively for a while. (Pretty much as long as Monzo is getting me new screen captures and as long as I can be bothered scanning more comic stuff.)
Not an update; but for those of you worried that I've been neglecting the individual character entries, I'm workin' on 'em. I just haven't got any new UK comics with new generics for a while. Oh well. I'll go through and fix up the existing entries and work on new entries one of these days soon. Promise.
Straxus has been updated so he now includes the former 'Straxus Gallery'. The gallery is now gone; if you find any dead links to the gallery, please inform me.
Oddities has been totally revamped and updated. Significant changes have been made to the original oddities page. A new page of general oddities has been added, and a whole new section (Who's got the Matrix?!) has been thrown in. A new 'Robocapers' strip has been added, also. Also, the oddities section is now separate from the 'Other Stuff' section because it has expanded in size so much.
The Generic Transformers was updated a few days ago and I forgot to put it in What's New. Now there are entries for generic Transformers from various Transformers cartoon episodes. Most noteably, Heavy Metal War and Cosmic Rust (IE: they're the only ones I've done, actually.)
WELL, I'M BACK! Err, or rather. I'm back. The site is back up. Hope you can enjoy what there is of it.
Added a bunch of new pictures to Impactor, Emirate Xaaron, Fang and a few other UK characters (Nautilus!). Just go into the archive and look up the UK comics section. I'll link to it through here some time later. I'm sure I will.
A big update this time; the entire 'Generic Characters' section is soon going to explode in size. But for now, I've just moved the entire Generics section, increased the magnitude of the UK comics section, deleted the other stuff, and added a bunch of new info. Weird.
Updated the oddities pages, by adding a page dedicated to Transformers Robo-Capers strips! Check out the Robo-capers oddities page.
Some minor text edits to the Cartoon Fleshlings page. However these are aided by some fairly major image edits, and the addition of a picture of Dr. Harding. Go Doc Harding!
Major edits and additions, as well as a tonne of new pictures were added to the Cartoon Cybertronian Technology section!
Editted one of Fang's images slightly so it looks better.
New mini-banner added to the 'Other Stuff' page.
Impactor's a Zombie? He is now, because I've added some neat pictures of his Zombie form! Woo!
Added pictures to the Triumverate entry.
Jhiaxus got some heavy text edits, so that his bio is more accurate/comprehensive. I also added a bunch of comments to most of the other sections of his entry.
The Liege Maximo has had something of a revamp, as well as having new notes added about his appearance in the BotCon storyline. (Primon, puttup.)
Mindset now contains more text... including some... some... some praise of Manny Gallan.
Finally added some new images Emirate Xaaron's entry.
Added a picture link to the entry for 'Ali' in the cartoon fleshlings section.
Instituting a new listing system for the appearances of each Obscure TF. For comic book characters it lists all the issues they appeared in, the title of each issue, and comments where appropriate. For the cartoon characters it includes the season, episode name, and comments where appropriate. This will have a big effect on the appearances listing for some characters like Straxus or Emirate Xaaron who had tonnes of appearances, but almost no effect on one-time characters like Crosscut.
Primon? Primon? who the f**k is Primon? Check out the Primes section.
