Ok now this is funny. I ordered a used copy of HoS GN and the one I got was a library copy once. It's marked Union County on it. Thats my home county. :D It never was in my library though. Mine is named after the man who built it not the town or county but still kinda funny.

@  Tm_Silverclaw : (09 February 2016 - 09:44 PM)

Is it sad I read "KF7 Soviet" as "KFC7 Soviet"?

@  TheMightyMol... : (09 February 2016 - 03:38 PM)

this is form 47-a. you want form 47-A. start again

@  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.

Yay, it be open!

Not a bad issue. icon-hotrod.gif Not MTMTE, but few books are. Still a solid interesting read. SPOILERS.

I was sorry to see Barrel Roll and some of the more interesting/less human looking NAILs go without getting explored. Also, I'm a bit sorry to see the Aerialbots go storming off like the Dinobots in the old Marvel comic. The "Grimlock" role is a bit odd for Silverbolt, though i think you could argue it was somewhat understandable in that he always cared deaply about his troops, his seriously taking responsibillity for them is one of the reasons he got the job from Prime traditionally. Still I want to see Sky Dive do something besides stand in the background and follow Silverbolt. Since they've seperated themselves from the group now I'd LOVE an issue focused on the team and getting each member some personality and spotlight time to react to the situation. I don't think that'll happen, but I wish it would. Given how hostile Cybertron is, I'm not sure how far they're going... the next time we see those five could be as corrpses found in the wilderness. (Boo to that idea.)

Still I really like what they're doing with Starscream. It's nice to see him using his cunning this way and not knowing how far exactly you or the Autobots should trust his stated motives. He DEFINATELY has the public relations savy that King Bee (that is almost certainly gonna catch on...) and Prowl lack.

Curious to see where we go next. I'd like to see the book expand its character focus and start moving the plot of settling and exploring Cybertron a bit more. So far it's been the political leadership crisis interrupted by a crisis of the moment that must be solved. Now with a seeming triumvirate of Bee, MH, and Starscream formed I'd like to see them get a bit more traction under them in dealing with their main issues of the hostile planet, new city, new society bit.

-ZacWilliam, also Prowl is really wound tight these days. Understandable but still, he's more like a pressurized ball of repressed anger than his usual stoic self.

To be fair he was just introed in that design 4 months ago and it takes something like two years to go from concept to toy IIRC.

I dream in my deapest heart that following the Trans4mers Movie toyline in 2014 (is it too overdone to joke about it being entirely 35 Bumblebee and Prime variants?) we come back to Generations in 2014 with Rung/Scrounge, Metalhawk, Swerve, and Skids.


-ZacWilliam, oh and as long as I'm dreaming I'd love a Sky Lynx.

I enjoyed it but it didn't seem as enjoyable as past issues.

I loved the interplay between the bots though. And it was nice to get a sciency Wheeljack again.

In which way?

1) Because outside of town is entirely a hostile primitive hell-scape bent on murdering anyone who goes more than a few feet?

2) Or because they coulda flown?


Until a future issues says otherwise I'm gonna assume they just metaphorically walked away from King Bee's government and didn't actually walk out of town, which Ironhide's foray in issue #1 suggests would be tantamount to suicide even if there were anyplace to go, which there isn't.


-ZacWilliam, would LOVE an issue focused entirely on the Aerialbots, showing how each of them as individuals feels about and deals with the whole situation and leaving the Autobots. That would be a great chance for some character exploration and exploration of the new Iacon forming.

Okay, Andrew Griffith deserves some kind of medal and industry award for excellence. Managing to research and include this ungodly density of detailed references in kickass art and still delivering the thing on time is something that many, if not most other artists in the industry could only dream of achieving.

Maybe its the fact I've read Darkwing Duck and Ghostbusters, but I don't find this surprising as each issue of those series is filled with pages like this.

Agreed. I REALLY like Griffith's Wheeljack, too. He does a very good job of giving WJ a lot of expression in spite of the faceplate.

I was a bit surprised that Silverbolt turned out to be the hothead Aerialbot, as opposed to say... Slingshot. Not to mention his very monotone color scheme. I honestly thought he was Blades when he first popped into the recovery ward (though Blades is of course also red... but it was mostly due to how Griffith draws bolt's wings in bot mode).

A very well done issue! The story, and dialogue is intelligent with lots of easter eggs in the art. These two series really do make me look forward to Transformers comics again. Rather than go the easy way, and break out into war, the writing shows exactly how much strain is taken in order to keep the peace. Keep em coming!

It's close to what his color scheme was in War for Cybertron... which isn't good IMO, this color scheme is bland and I like it better with the red in there.

I think this issue was a bit weaker than the others, but still decent. I'm digging Starscream. The writing just feels a bit uneven. Like Bumblebee's outburst last issue, Silverbolt's outburst seemed a bit out of place. Just needs more buildup, I feel.

Have we gotten any info on Cybertron's moons before in IDW?

DOOP and MTMTE #1 established that one of the Moons vanished mystiously in reletively modern times. No one knows to where. Swerve was part of the "Moon Quest" to try and find it. Apparently they failed.


-ZacWilliam, almost wanted to add the bit about Minicons hailing from the moons but that was Aligned from the Exodus novels. Wish that would get used somewhere. Neat Idea.

That was my first thought as well, but I think with Barrel Roll dying, it does work for Silverbolt to just completely lose it. Especially since he does think the Decepticons were behind the first blast anyways. I can imagine Slingshot influencing Silverbolt off screen as well.

Really good issue. Loved the focus on Starscream and Wheeljack. If SS can convince even the most intelligent among the top brass, you know things aren't looking good icon-hotrod.gif
