# But Megatron and Soundwave seemed to be able to somehow propel themselves through the air in their alt forms, why not a flying skip?

# Not necessarily
Soundwave only ever flew once in tape player mode (in the episode "Masquerade", which is generally regarded as an error or lazy animation) and the only time I remember Megatron flying in gun mode was in the second lot of Transformers/GI Joe crossover comics (ahead of Generation 2) when he didn't shrink either - which was probably down to the writer being unfamiliar with the property.

# When I say 'fly', I mean that he didn't instantly fall to the ground when turning into a gun,
he normally seemed to find his way into someone's hand ;)

# Starscream was a good catch

# As much as I loved the original Transformers,
with hindsight they did seem to have just the right vehicle at the right time.

Also, why could the Deceptiocons fly and the Autobots not fly?

# also when
megatron turned into his gun he was alot smaller than in robot form? where did the rest of his junk go?

# Scale was another thing that bugged me,
Sometimes a Transformer would be 20 times bigger than any others, then they would be the same size as Bumblebee.

# In the cartoon it was explained, sort of
(which also ignores all the times you see Autobots flying, of course)

In the comics, Decepticons couldn't fly unless they turned into a jet or something, just like Autobots.

# But I'm sure that in the first series when the Decepticons made a run for it
they flew off (in robot form)

It has been many a year since I last watched it though.

I'm resisting the urge to click on the TFwiki page for fear of losing all productivity, I have a LOT of work to do........... Maybe just five minutes looking around......

look at wiki

# The UK comics were the only actual Transformers continuity
Everything else was bullshit.

I had something like 175 of the first 215 or so comics. Then I threw them all out when I was 14 :(

Edit: haha, emvee's linked to that wiki before and each time I've fallen to temptation and lost enormous amounts of time, both in nostalgia and wondering who on Earth found the time to write all of that. (Silly question: emvee did.)

# I've still got a near-complete collection
but if you just want to catch up you can torrent the whole series as .cbr files - which I find far easier than actually getting out of my chair these days

[edit] Haha, yeah, a lot of the more obscure pages are down to me :/

# Oh you utter bastard, its started.
I worked out how to chuck comics on my Ereader the other day, this isn't going to end well!

Anyone a pink floyd fan around these parts by the way?

# Oh fantastic!
I shall do that, even if it makes me feel even nerdier than I already am. A lot of my comics were in terrible nick by the time I chucked them, in all honesty. Lying scattered all over a bedroom and being trodden on by boy and dog alike doesn't do much for a comic.

# There was one narrative about a smelting pool or something like that.
Where old Transformers got melted down in a giant pit. I remember reading about it when I was of sick as a kid. Whilst I made my mum rent The Shining on VHS for me.

It definitely didn't fuck me up.

# Poor Scrounge
Blaster rescued him from the smelting pool by pulling him out, only to find he'd completely melted away below the chest, and Scrounge begged him to drop him back in and let him die. Quite graphic for a kids' comic but it definitely didn't fuck me up.
