@  MEDdMI : (09 February 2016 - 02:07 PM)

Now you didn't fill the form in black or blue ink. Do it again.

@  Rycochet : (09 February 2016 - 02:04 PM)

You made a typo on the first page of the forms, you're going to have to go back and fill the whole form out again, from first to final.

I am fully aware of that story and mentioning it carries the penalty of fifty towel snaps.

Shh, it's a trap!

@  TheMightyMol... : (08 February 2016 - 02:48 PM)

See, you said "awesome" and "The Beast" in the same sentence, and I think you broke my mind with the contradiction.

@  Rycochet : (08 February 2016 - 02:42 PM)

No-one tell Whirl about the awesome dinobot combiner, The Beast.

@  Whirl Maximus : (08 February 2016 - 02:33 PM)

Transformers Victory's intro is awesome. And not one of you told me.... WHY?!!!

@  Rycochet : (08 February 2016 - 10:43 AM)

It doesn't count those using it on other pages.

@  Rycochet : (08 February 2016 - 10:43 AM)

If it's the one by IPB Shoutbox, it means the number of people who are viewing the Shoutbox page.

@  tffan01 : (08 February 2016 - 10:34 AM)

Where's the red numbers?

@  Lush City : (08 February 2016 - 09:23 AM)

Ok total newb to the shoutbox, but what do the red numbers in the corner mean?

@  Whirl Maximus : (08 February 2016 - 09:09 AM)

Thought it would lead to hi jinks and a lark like that movie Idiocracy instead it turned into something disturbing and traumatic like that movie Small Soldiers.

@  Dracula : (08 February 2016 - 08:55 AM)

I got bruticus limbs at FP last monday and Onslaught on Friday. Huge mistake, I inserted an X1000 microprocessor in each one and a extra for Bruticus, and they mopped the floor with the rest of my CW collection.

@  BillBarclay : (08 February 2016 - 06:18 AM)

i already got those(Scattershot & Onslaught) from Smyths Toys here in the UK, Asda's supposed to have the RID Warrior Class figures in(Megatronus, Blue Optimus Prime ect)

Yeah it was super awesome.

HIGHLIGHT to view:
Besides the things we saw in the preview like Guzzle getting torn in half and Pyro getting killed.

I loved the scene where Impactor executed Squadron X, as it showed that war is dirty.

Prowl continues to be awesome.

Overlord tearing off Springer's face and looking at it reminded me of the Devil's Rejects.

Surprisingly Guzzle and Impactor survived. Showing how the creative team can just take all your preconceptions and turn them around.

Poor sweet Ironfist.

I did not expect Overlord to make it out, especially after he lost his skin.

I loved this series.

Ha! Impactor was inspired to switch his hand out for a harpoon after encountering a certain dimension-hopping freelance peacekeeping agent!

But yeah, this was sex and candy. Goodnight, sweet Ironfist.

This was a GREAT ISSUE. The hidden comedy gems are great. When Springer got his BMFG he said sweet! When Overlord ripped off Springer's face, he said sweet. AHAHHAHHAHAHA. Honestly having Guzzle survive beeing ripped in half is a testament to his toughness. I knew he would survive. Ironfist was bittersweet. He died from an invention of his own doing. And someone on here pegged that the hole in his noggin was from an accident. And Overlord should have died. I was hoping maybe Megatron would come in as a shocker and make good on his word. But Im glad if it was any bunch of bots to do in a powerhouse such as Overlord, its the Wreckers. Even though he survived all they threw at him. Such a beautiful mix of grit, death, humor and good story telling. Just how nasty and fun for some, war can be. Roche and Roberts... BRAVO BRAVO!!!

Death count was lower than I expected, and definitely not everyone I expected.

Still, an awesome read as always. I thought for sure Springer had bought it after that blow from Overlord... Yikes.

I think my only complaint here would be that Pyro's death scene was too quick. Something a little more, especially since he had that giant weapons platform, would've been nice. Make the reader feel a bit more like his death meant something, to fully redeem him from his comments last issue.

Otherwise, though... Holy crap. IDW needs to give these guys more, be it more mini-series on the side, plenty of Spotlights or even an ongoing title.
Otherwise, it's an utter waste of talent. And the sales speak for themselves, after a rocky start it got some pretty good numbers.

You're far too young to be this bitter and angry at the world....

Yeah, I would have liked to have seen Pyro taking out tons of Decepticons before eventually buying it.

It seems like he was just piled up on and ripped apart with little to no fight.

That was a HELL of a series. I'm sad/happy/tearful/shocked/horrorfied and more.

I'll just dispense with spoiler tags and say DONT READ IF YOU HAVNT YET:

The death count was much lower then expected, but those deaths hurt. As happy as I was to see Guzzle and Impactor pull through... damn, Pyro, almost Springer... and IRONFIST. God, Ironfists death HURT. Especially with Verity there crying beside him, and rewriting everything he said.

And hug me, Overlord Just. Wouldn't. Die. Damn, and to see his goal ripped from him like that.... damn. And ordering the execution of the prisoners? Holeecrap.

Damn. Best series ever.

Wow. Good stuff. And it looks like Guzzle's cleaning up in Vegas with luck like that.

Glad of that. Liked the stocky little SOG.

Way I see it, Pyro went out perfect. Like a chump, but a chump doing the right thing. No glory, no impossible last stand. Just buying a tiny bit of time.

Dying a hero in a huge wall of explosions and badassery wouldn't, well, be learning his lesson in a way.

(Also, the psych profile's bit on his mental condition was golden. And yay Death's Head.)

I don't think I can really add anything to what's already been said, aside from this being a satisfying conclusion. A small part of me wonders how the end fits in with the ongoing - its clearly somewhere after the events of #6 of the Ongoing, but beyond that, I'd love a firm idea of how it fits in.

Glad that Impactor survived, and equally glad to see three profiles in this issue. Also...good lord, I'd love a new toy for Guzzle. Repaint/remold the Cyb. Scrapmetal figure, and we'd get a perfect match for his look here, albeit slightly lankier. Now we just need that version of Ironfist from the Club comic and a new toy for Rotorstorm, and this bunch would have a set of new toys just waiting to go.

Now, what's left this month? Another issue of the Ongoing?

Kinda hard to learn a lesson when you're dead.

I didn't mean a hero's death like in his fantasy... just the chance to take a 'Con or two with him is all. I mean, he had that big weapons platform with him...

Yeah, but ROTF Brawn is a big, bulky fella so far as his size class is concerned. Guzzle, by contrast, is small and bulky, and I was also thinking of alt-mode accuracy as well as looks.

I like how Pyro added the faceplate after the fact, due to his obsession with being Optimus Prime. So the Botcon figure not having one is a Pyro who isn't as obsessed with being Optimus Prime.
