Zobovor's Updates Archive (2000)
I am constantly making minor modifications to various pages (correcting
spelling mistakes, adding a few new bloopers here and there, scraping gum
off the seats, etc.) but they don't warrant an update in the archive; you
won't find those here. Also, keep in mind that some of these links
may no longer be active as I shift, change, and rearrange the good ol'
I've been spending a couple of months dead for tax reasons... wait, that
was somebody else. Actually, I've been working some long hours, sleeping
too much, and dealing with a couple of sick toddlers. I've also been
having some problems with my latest kitbashes, but with any luck I'll have
those done soon, as well as a couple more episodes' worth of bloopers, possibly
the latest installment to the encyclopedia, and a surprise or two.
(8/11) This month marks the biggest update in the history of the ZMFTS.
Bigger than the biggest update ever, and then some!
Uploaded the "E's" to
the Transformers Television
Encylopedia. Everything you ever wanted to know about Elita One,
electrum, and energon cubes! Exciting!
I also got rid of that obnoxiously large image on the home page and replaced
it with a banner for the encyclopedia, which will be used on all its sub-pages.
I'll probably put some smaller pictures up on the home page later.
STATIC IMAGE THEATRE:
to the TRANSFORMERS UNIVERSE II.
My reviews of the current nine
Transformers videos released
by Kid Rhino have been wedged into the Toy Reviews
Finally, I added a few pictoral icons to some of the sub-pages (Bloopers,
Kitbashes, TRANSFORMERS UNIVERSE II, ZobTrivia and especially
Fanfics) in an attempt to make them a bit more visually interesting.
(7/16) It's the Big Summer Update!
(6/5) Uploaded 25 new
Repaints! Highlights include the
and design concept drawings for my Arcee kitbash are also up if anyone
wants to see them. I also moved a mess of Star Wars kitbashes from
Webjump to FortuneCity.
(6/3) Added my latest creation, the
Transforming Kitbash, to Zobovor's Kitbashes
page. I've got the new and improved Transmutate finished as well, but
you'll have to wait until I send it to ViceGripX so he can take some digicam
shots of it for me.
(5/28) Moved the
of Optimus Prime page and created its arch rival, the
Uploaded the entry for the
"C's" to the
Encylopedia. Many thanks for your patience; I plan to be working
on the encyclopedia more consistently from this point onward.
Created the Many
Faces of Optimus Prime page, which is a comparison of the various
"Convoy"-style Autobots and Maximals. Well, that's just Prime's...
For those of you who aren't checking the page regularly (even though I update
it almost every night), I've got reviews up for almost every single U.S.
Beast Wars toy on Zob's Toy Reviews page.
(5/8) Um... Uploaded a picture of a
spider. And accidentally replaced the home
(4/13) I've got some fun new kitbashes uploaded for your perusal, and
a few other oddities. Here's the latest batch:
(3/20) One of the things that's kept me so busy lately is writing product
reviews for Epinions.com. (Hey, it pays the rent.) I've
gathered most of the relevant ones together on a new
Toy Reviews page for your reading pleasure.
I'm not too proud to ask that you join as a member of Epinions (it's
free, no obligations) because I earn a few cents each time one of my reviews
gets a page hit from a member. The more my reviews earn for me, the
less time I need to spend writing them and the more time I can get back to
working on the ZMFTS.
I'd also like to direct your attention to
Radio Free Cybertron. It's
a Transformers Internet radio show home to the RFC Transformers: the Movie
Parody, an all-new show with original scripts and voice acting by the staff.
I did most of the voice work and dubbing for the first part, and I'm
rather proud of it. Check it out when you get a chance.
(3/7) Played around with the links page a bit, which is now
Zobovor's Trans-Links Express. Catchy, huh?
(2/24) Uploaded the
Episode List and Writer
Credits for the
Encyclopedia, which is complete except for some of the writer credits
for Transformers season one and the Beast Machines episodes
that have not aired yet.
Also tweaked the Constructicons image
on the home page a bit.
(2/11) Added my G.B.
Blackrock Kitbash to Zobovor's Kitbashes Page.
(2/10) The new and improved ZMFTS Guestbook
2000 is up. You all were very naughty. Except those of you
(2/8) Created the one, the only,
Transformers Dance! Accept no substitutions!
(2/2) Here's what's new for the month of February:
I am proud to announce the birth of the
Home Page. It's my massively revamped drawings page, featuring
an entire issue of my ZOBOVORS comic book; some neat
stuff from my portfolio; and yes, some new Transformers drawings! I've
been working hard on this one (oh, I do so hate FTP), so please come and
have a look.
Two Beast Wars repaints,
2 Grimlock and
2 Cyclonus can be found on Zobovor's Kitbashes
page. Cyclonus is due for a forthcoming fanfic appearance,
I've also finished two more Star Wars kitbashes:
R2-D2 with Sound and Lights, and
Boba Fett. They're also on the kitbashing page.
Added a link button to my
Epinions.com Affiliate Site.
I've been spending a lot of time on Epinions, so if you'd like to see
some of the reviews I've written, head on down and have a look-see, why dontcha?
Added some page anchors to make the Fanfics Page
and Links Page a little easier to navigate.
(1/1/2000) For those of you just joining us, welcome to Zobovor's
Multi-Faceted Transformers Site! And for all you happy people who have
been awaiting the latest update, I deeply apologize for keeping you waiting.
I hope that the new features and additions will have made the delays
at least somewhat worth it. I've got a lot planned for the site in
the coming year, so remember to check back! In the meantime, here's
what we've got for ya:
Brand-Spanking New Stuff
The Transformers Television
Encyclopedia (295K image on the home page) is available
for previewing. (I fully expected to have the data entry finished before
the new year, but working a 40+ hours night shift tends to suck up a lot
of my energy.) While I will be doing the data entry myself, if you
wish to contribute to the Encyclopedia, screen shots of characters from the
episodes are always wanted. I require very specific shots of a number
of characters, so please e-mail me if
you'd like to help, and we can exchange notes. (And pics!)
Created the Transformers Pop Culture References
page, which includes scans of Transformer appearances in the comic strips
The Family Circus.
Created the Catalog Gaffes
page, featuring the
Added an almost-Beast Machines fanfic called
And finally, the ZobTrivia Archives are born!
Marvel at the obscurest of the obscure; boggle your mind with Transformers
minutae from all aspects of the fandom; wonder how in the blazes I came up
with some of these. (I don't know either, truth be told.)
Updated Old Stuff
New logo for 2000. Like it? (Aah, who asked
New pictures of Ethan
and Becca, the
two craziest little kitties in the world.
Added some more of Zob's Thoughts, including
my Beast Machines episode reviews.
Confirmed about 35 new Transformers: the Movie
bloopers with submissions from fans (and a few new ones I spotted), including
tidbits from the new Kid Rhino release. A special thanks to Vicken
Aghazarian for encouraging me to get off my butt.
Added a whole crapload of
Wacky Shelf Tags.
Scanned in the newest batch of photos for Static Image
Theatre, including the infamous
Decepti-Pumpkin and a little something
I like to call Beast Skirmishes.
Did some general rearranging, particularly on my links
page, which also has a new
