So, the ship's 15 miles long, 10 miles wide; making those robots...big.


From Transformers: Robots in Disguise #26, "Finis Temporis" Written by John Barber and James Roberts, art by Andrew Griffith and Livid Ramondelli. This is part nine of the Dark Cybertron storyline, and Ultra Magnus and the crew of the starship Lost Light return to Cybertron, with the titan Metroplex! Who immediately throws down with the equally massive Necrotitan, both of whom are gigantic compared to regular Autobots and Decepticons.

Even though I'm not in love with the Lost Light's design, I do like the backstory: it was bought used, for their quest to find the Knights of Cybertron; and is about 15 miles long, 10 wide. It would have to be pretty darn big, since the Transformers are normally bigger than a person; but it's also big enough to contain any number of mysteries. Although, scale is often a problem in Transformers comics: how big is any given Transformer, compared to another, in a shot with a really big ship and two huge robots?

I was thinking about Deadpool's ship the Blame and what it looks like--not like any we've seen so far!

Damn. Now that's a splash page. These transformers comics have a come a long way since my early days reading 'em. The fights like that much more epic. Except for the original Marvel Transformers comic#75. My god that was something seeing all those robots fucked up and melted like they were. Fangasim indeed!
