@  unitremover : (22 February 2017 - 09:36 PM)

I haven't been up there in a while but one of the Walmarts around here still has AOE deluxes out. Some of the CVSs do too.

@  wonko the sane? : (22 February 2017 - 09:34 PM)

It's been the same thing in local stores for ages up here.

@  BlackMax : (22 February 2017 - 09:33 PM)

One near me is the same - I swear they have over forty Deluxes there, all from many months ago.

@  Telly : (22 February 2017 - 07:43 PM)

My Walmart had a Generations Rattrap hanging for the past 2 and a half years, and in trying to clearance it, inadvertently marked down the entire Generations Deluxe assortment.

@  Steevy Maximus : (22 February 2017 - 07:09 PM)

A shelf warmer's ultimate revenge: being around long enough that in trying to clearance it...the store marks down the entire SKU!

@  NotVeryKnightly : (22 February 2017 - 07:59 AM)

Eh, he would've gotten beaten up if the government sent just about anyone.

@  Pennpenn : (22 February 2017 - 07:56 AM)

Regardless, literally everything I've ever seen (and a lot on tfwiki) attributes Megatron's slide into violence to Whirl beating him up while in custody. Maybe not like flicking a switch but Megatron's line "You made me. You taught me words were weightless without force" kinda spells it out.

@  NotVeryKnightly : (22 February 2017 - 07:38 AM)

I'm not sure if there even was a specific turning point, but he didn't seem kill happy yet when he was with Terminus, and that was after Whirl beating him up.

@  NotVeryKnightly : (22 February 2017 - 07:24 AM)

It was also before any sort of uprising or him actually doing much of anything.

@  Pennpenn : (22 February 2017 - 07:20 AM)

I mean, the whole thing didn't start as "the great war". It was an uprising that eventually morphed into a the war.

@  Pennpenn : (22 February 2017 - 07:17 AM)

Yeah, of course it's before the war, Whirl beating Megatron while he was in custody was the tipping point that made Megatron turn violent.

@  RC85747 : (22 February 2017 - 07:08 AM)

hascon

@  NotVeryKnightly : (22 February 2017 - 05:12 AM)

But the thing with Whirl was before he started the war.

@  Pennpenn : (22 February 2017 - 03:28 AM)

Like so many awful things in that universe, it's basically Whirl's fault.

@  Telly : (22 February 2017 - 12:51 AM)

for about 10 minutes. then he got all kill happy

@  SHIELD Agent 47 : (21 February 2017 - 10:27 PM)

Wouldn't IDW Megatron kind of count since his main reason for instigating the Great War was to overthrow the Functionist social order?

@  Black Hat : (21 February 2017 - 04:05 PM)

(I haven't read IDW at all please don't sue me)

@  Black Hat : (21 February 2017 - 04:04 PM)

Tyrest? He was chief justice, even :p

I think it's more than likely Killmaster. The person in there is holding what looks just like Killmaster's wand, with the sparking tip, and the solicit mentions how whoever it is is going to try to kill Whirl.

 

Methinks Whirl may have been fibbing a bit when he told how he slew Killmaster.

My initial guess as I was reading the page was that it would be Killmaster, since he's huge and dangerous which would justify it being locked, and his "archenemy" Whirl is there, who I;ve always assumed was bullshitting about having killed him. And then I got to the last panel, and that sure as SHOOT looks like a hand holding a wand...

Since the names Nightbeat's rattling off include Turmoil, I'm gonna go ahead and say Starscream killed the rest of them as well.

 

Neat to see Adjudicus make it beyond "unused name for Tyrest", even if it is just as "some dude Starscream killed".


On rare occasions, I have something to say.

Killmaster? Really?

 

Even for LL that feels kinda self indulgent.


"Disabled people donít have special needs. We have very reasonable human needs. Our needs include freedom from abuse, violence, and mistreatment, the right to autonomy and self-direction, the right to represent ourselves, equal opportunity for education and employment, the right to accommodation, and societal inclusion and acceptance.

The need for accommodation isnít a ďspecial needĒ. Itís a basic human right. Itís a leveling of the playing field that allows us the same opportunities and chances as non-disabled people."

Yep. And I liked that the list included some Decepticon-sounding names other than Turmoil, that seems to fit Starscream.

I wonder if we'll see what Killmaster's wand even does. Assuming it's an actual weapon and not something hokey like his lover's spark or whatever.

Also, "Questex." That's begging for a Quest joke.

Ooh, I just remembered something highly interesting that makes it even more likely it's Killmaster.

The geobomb was based off of Killmaster's "moongun" design. And what more than likely sent the protagonists to the Functionist Universe? The geobomb. They're probably going to need his help to get back to the regular universe.

Cyclonus explains that sparing Whirl's life allowed him to later save Tailgate, and before he can finish the sentence Whirl is already wearing Killmaster's head as a hat.

Indeed. We actually have a useful Transformer-esque design for him now.

 

It probably is Killmaster, but I was wondering if that might be Thunderwing, who's location is unknown.

My first thought when I looked at the page was that it's the 'original' Star Saber, specifically inserted to placate the kind of people who said they'd drop the comic but can't stop paying attention to it at any cost. Needless to say, I'm much happier that actual analysis indicates it's Killmaster.

I'm cautiously enjoying LL, but OP and Revolutionaries are incredible. I love everything about them!

Man, I've missed Milne. OP's looking great, but it'll look significantly less great if Cosmos doesn't make it out. (Also, I hope that Wreck-Gar sticks around in some form, because I love him.)

 

Revolutionaries is good, but feels like it's still a little too decompressed for the one-story-per-issue pace. I'm guessing that Ian's responding to Mercy, though?
