Can the politics stay in P&R? I don't really need an emetic that badly.

@  Pennpenn : (20 January 2017 - 05:37 PM)

All of Trump's base are stone cold morons, so there's that. Then again, a lot of people would argue that America has nevr been "great", or even when it is there's plenty to bring down it's score.

@  Vexwing : (20 January 2017 - 04:18 PM)

A lot of Trump's base would probably claim it stopped being great 8 years ago.

@  Locoman : (20 January 2017 - 03:44 PM)

And today is National Cheese Lover's Day, apparently, so perhaps we should make America grate again while we're at it

We as a nation either drank too much or not enough. It's difficult to say, really.

Isn't America being crazy drunk how we got in this situation in the first place?

I plan on being very American about every single injustice our new leader perpetrates ("American" of course meaning "annoyed and loud").

I recommend America just get crazy drunk for the next four years. It's the only way you're going to get through them.

In the beginning new Subways were only built every twelve months. Then six, then three. Then every two weeks. In four days we could be seeing a new Subway every eight hours until they are coming every four minutes.

@  Locoman : (18 January 2017 - 03:44 PM)

I'm a little worried by how many Subways there are in my vincinity. Like, there are two within walking distance of my house, and I pass about four of them on my way to work

@  TheMightyMol... : (18 January 2017 - 03:41 PM)

I'd almost rather eat the corpse, but then again, it's probably been eating Subway too, with my luck.

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.

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.
