TFcon 2009: Goldbug-Bumblebee by ninjatron TFcon 2009: Goldbug-Bumblebee by ninjatron
This is the final page, sans text, of the 2009 TFcon prelude comic. Autobot Goldbug sheds his damaged, golden armor and reverts back to his previous form as the classic Bumblebee!

To get the whole story of how this happened, make sure you check out the entire comic, written by Meesum Abidi and illustrated by myself, right here. [link]
I worked hard on this comic, having only 2 weeks to finish, and despite the tight deadline I managed to not only finish on time with the best comic I've ever done for TFcon over the past 4 years, but I also did more than was required. I was originally only supposed to do 4 pages in order to lighten the load, but I would have none of that and did 6 pages instead!

The story concluded at TFcon 2009 during the Live Script Reading with voice actor Dan Gilvezan. [link]

I sold a few prints of this but still have a couple left. Let me know if you want one.

you and me both; the 'goldbug' persona/image just didn't do a thing for me...

Guess I'm one of the few who liked Goldbug more than Bumblebee. His evolution into Goldbug was like Cheetor's cyber puberty.

This artwork illustration is wonderful and the colours have a soft gentle feel about it which is well done. Good job! I'm trying to find this comic on the TFCon website but the links aren't working for me to view them. Is it too old to view?

As I understand it, the TFcon website was redesigned before the 2011 show and so a lot of previous content isn't there anymore. Maybe it will be brought back later?
My 2011 comic is there, but I think that's it. I'll put all my comics on my own website someday.

Hi ninjatron! It's a pleasure to get a reply from you. I'm a huge fan of your works especially the Live Script Reading of Dan Gilvezan comic.
Ok then I'll come back later and check thank you for the help.
Yes I saw and reading it now! So far so good and interesting.
Oh I'm also curious but I bet no chance since it was back 2009, do you still have any prints for sale of this comic? I'd be interested to buy them.

Thanks for your comments.
Typically I only make a limited number of copies of the very last page of the comic, with the text removed, and sell those at the show. I think I have a few left of this Bumblebee one, but the 2010 and 2011 prints sold out. But it's just the last page. Any prints of the entire comic are given to the writer and the voice actors.

Sayonara.

I always did prefer his original form over Goldbug. I'm glad Bumblebee makes a comeback. :3
