84? I thought they were first thought up in 79. But what you say is true, yes. And I completely forgot about the scropeion one from the movie. Though, honestly, it would have been dead cool if it was a walker and not a sentien machine...that fight sequence would have been even cooler.

Well, the designs were all taken off older toys by various companies, produced as early as 1974. The official show 1st aired in 1984.

Regarding the Scorpion, he was Scorponok. In the movie yeah he was an alien. In the original cartoon he was a alien too. not a robotic alien, but rather something like a separate species of human. Zarak, the alien constructed Scorponok out of his city, and was able to binary bond to him, allowing him control over him. Zarak then became machine too, and transformed into the head of Scorponok. Basically without Zarak, Scorponok was just an Armour. In Scorpion walker mode, Zarak pilots it from the cockpit.

Thus Scorponok transforms into a Scorpion walker, a robot and a city.
In that light Scorponok was actually a walker in the original cartoons, not piloted by humans but some kind of alien...

I was reading I am a Genius of Unspeakable Evil, and I Want to be Your Class President, and he was talking about how the sun rises and sets every day, no matter what happened. He said that even the Archduke Franz Ferdinand was killed the sun still went down.
Reminded me of Levvie.

Found a Transformer that would be the result of Clanker + Darwinism.

They are a team of mechanical beasties, that have individual robot modes, and combine into a huge ass robot.  ;D

In the anime Castle in the Sky, there's a vehicle called the Goliath. I watched it before the book came out.

I saw a bunch of earrings at a store, and the card they were on said, "Periwinkle- by Barlow."

I love that movie! I imagine all the fight scenes in the Leviathan series in that kind of animation.

When my parakeet babbles, it reminds me of when Bovril and the other loris go under tables and babble.

My dog reminds me of tazza,  when she begs she sits up right and does a weird thing with her front paws that looks like she's clapping
