I'm planning on picking up the Last Stand of the Wreckers TPB this week or next. I've read Stormbringer, Infiltration-Revelation and Maximum Dinobots (+Spotlights), but skipped AHM and the current ongoing. Am I going to be missing much when I read LSotW? Is this series an off-shoot of the current ongoing (like the Bumblebee mini)?

Thanks,
Bob

I've never picked up a single issue of IDW other than skimming Wiki and flipping pages in Stormbringer at Barnes and Noble, and I had no trouble following the story. It's pretty well self contained beyond references to characters getting in and out or the Phase-Sixers. Given how much you've read, sounds like you are more than up to date enough for Wreckers icon-hotrod.gif
Clearing out some old TFs and Mugenbine in my BST Thread. You know you want some of these.

Yeah, AHM has very little to do with it, and, thus far, it's not really tied into the Ongoing (I think Magnus's bit in ongoing takes place after LSotW, maybe?).

It's readily accessible to casual and even non-fans. All the info you need to get the gist of it is contained within.

Recommended reading for maximum enjoyment would be Spotlight: Kup and All Hail Megatron issue 15 (first half only). Both written and drawn by Nick Roche, one of the LSOTW masterminds. Not required reading, however.

If you haven't read any of AHM, then brace yourself. His name's Perceptor

Basically, there's just two things to know about AHM as it relates to LSotW

-It involves a big Decepticon push against Autobot forces across the galaxy, and the opening of Wreckers takes place during one aspect of that push.

-The end of Wreckers features a piece of information that wasn't detailed in any of the books you've read. It occured at the end of AHM.

You may also wonder where Hunter is and why Kup has a Cigar

Good point on Hunter. As for Kup's cy-gar, I think anyone looking at it would just assume it was the Transformer version of a cigar. (Which it is, the story behind Kup's using it notwithstanding)
