"I write screenplays. Really good ones!... I almost have an agent." - Thundercracker

For some reason, I LOVED this characterization of Thundercracker in Transformers: Robots in Disguise issue 28. Hanging out in a hangar with his dog (Buster) working on his horrible screenplays. 

Now, I'm sure he would never actually type any of this... or manually scribble down notes on a notepad... aaaand the computer, pencil, and notepad should probably be WAAAAY smaller... but whatever. This was for fun. 

The dialogue/text of "Susan Journeyer" and "Josh Boyfriend" are taken directly from the issue. :)

Hahahaha! This is hilarious, and you drew it so well! Though, now that I think about it, it kind of makes sense that Thundercracker's character names have no nuance. Transformers tend to have names that tell something about themselves (Swindle swindles people, Smokescreen makes smoke screens, Soundwave is an audiophile, etc.). Still, Josh Boyfriend! LOL! :lol: rvmp

Feels to me they kinda gave Thundercracker a little Wreck-Gar juice in him.  And that's a good thing.

I wish I knew about this sooner but I am so lost in the comics I don't know where to start!

I feel like this could very easily become a meme.

I do agree..they ARE horrible xD

I think, the notepad is, perspective-wise, not correct. But it's the only thing I noticed.
All in all, it's one awesome drawing! =3

Kind of sad. In G1 there was a scene more true to his character, but that scene never
made it in the show and got deleted :/
