Change-Bots not dead!

Here's an excerpt from the latest Incredible Change-Bots Fanclub newsletter:

"There's a few projects in the works for the Change-Bots. First up, there's a short animated trailer being made for the book. I don't know when it'll be finished, but it looks good so far. Second, I'm working on designing my website - - and plan on having a gallery of some of the Change-Bots fan club drawings at some point. I also plan on printing up some of my favorites in an upcoming issue of my Sulk series, sometime next year. That issue will also have some new Change-Bots stories in it. And finally, I'm working on designing some Change-Bots vinyl figures. You can read more about that and see my design for the first toy - Balls -HERE ."

So it looks like there'll be a line of vinyl Change-Bots. I'm excited about that. I'm also excited about the further stories and an animated trailer. I am a teeny bit disappointed because I wanted to make my own Balls figure and have it be the only one in the world, but I guess there's still room for a blue repaint named Nemesis Balls.

My Rock Lords are works of genius compared to this.

The enthusiastic internet response has me wondering if Incredible Change-Bots is being taken a little too seriously, like how some people think Spinal Tap is a real band. I wanted to write "That's awful! Great job!" over at the Newsarama article but I think other posters might lynch me for thinking that Change-Bot's entertainment value is in its awfulness. Which it is for me but maybe not for them.

I may be reading into this too much, but since the comic is purposefully absurd it follows that the transforming figures would be equally ludicrous. And what's more crazy than a robot that doesn't exactly turn into a vehicle so much as it falls apart and you have to rearrange the pieces? It's the worst transformation ever, but on purpose!

Good point. I didn't think about it that way.

It's strange...I find the Rock Lords funny, even though they were meant to be taken seriously and I take the Incredible Change-Bots seriously, even though they were meant to be funny.
