Prowl's Office, Autobase Red Alert held his gaze on Prowl, whose back was still to the other two mechanoids in the room. "Is there something else you wish to add, Red Alert?" Prowl asked, sensing the ISS Director's eyes on him. "How you do insist on having the final word." "No, Prowl," Red Alert sa...

Some quick thoughts while on the go... A lot happened here, and in rapid succession. 'Rapid' being the operative word here. Brainstorm is thwarted, Rewind shoots Past-Megatron, Whirl saves Past-Megs with Stormy's one-percenter spark, and so and so on.... Hugely enjoyable, mind you, but gave little t...

...Or four issues (now that is a redundant observation) ;) --- Not much to add regarding the preview; there's just enough here to satiate me until next week. Will say I'm enjoying this recurring theme of people calling Megatron out on his hypocrisies. Judging by the preview pages though, Elegant Cha...

First impressions are he's a lot more anime-styled than the other MPs thus far, which to me isn't a bad thing. That's what came to mind, what with the lithe, slightly exaggerated features one may see in a mecha series. I'd be lying if I said Tracks was anywhere near the top of my "next MP wanted" l...

And MP-25 is....

Tracks!

In prototype stage, mind, but not too shabby, not too shabby at all. The Stingray alt mode is looking quite sexy as well. And I here I thought Takara was going to stick with using the '84 cars for base molds :)

Protectobots! **** yeah! Hot Spot is probably the better looking of Combiner Wars Voyagers we've seen so far, I'd say. Can kinda, sorta see it working as an Onslaught, maybe by reworking it into a missile carrier or something. First Aid, Streetwise and Blades make great use of the molds they're base...

But isn't that exactly what we see when we get to 'subject not recognised?' Mmm, possibly. Though I do wonder, is that a result of the Functionalist timeline converging with the other, or was that the result of Brainstorm revising his plan? I kinda gathered he hadn't initially intended to go that f...

Got a moment to add a few more thoughts. Yeah, this storyline is just plain fun. Has all the adventure, and world-building, and... fun I've come to expect from the title. Nice touch with the reprinted pages from Chaos Theory . As well as with the new, previously off-panel bits that had been added. F...

As always, doing this on the fly. Just some super quick thoughts. --- Figured it'd be Megatron. In 'season 2', it's always about Megatron! By the time Roberts is done with him, we're going to know just about everything there is know about Megatron, huh? Think this is the first time we've seen the cr...

Good stuff :up:

Fit quite snugly with MTMTE-verse, don't they? Also agree that the Ratchet bit was spot on. That one's probably my favorite so far.

MP-23 Deco Update

In other Masterpiece-related news, Takara's tweaking Exhaust's deco so as not to conflict with Marlboro's trademark.

Well, uh... it's shiny anyway. So hush :p

Takara likes making shiny Transformers, often unnecessarily so. For once I like it. Guess that's what I meant.

Re: MP-21G -- Usually not too crazy about chrome myself. Sans the Transmetals stuff, of course; those were fabulous. But this I kinda like. The gold is slightly dulled, so it's not as obnoxious per Takara's usual antics. Makes the mold just pop. The limbs might be molded in a different shade of blac...

I think the fact that dalek and I can spend so much time arguing over things is a sign of just how good the book can be. I mean, when was the last time any Transformers fiction inspired that much debate here? Can I just say how much I appreciate that. It warms my heart to see the MTMTE threads so l...

Windblade: Harmless, really. Story wise, however, nothing especially groundbreaking. A bit gimmicky too, but Windblade the character is likeable and goes someway to amending the blight that is Spotlight Arcee . Dark Cybertron: IDW put their main TF titles on hold for six months for the Dead Univers...

One thing I really liked about the phone conversation was how it worked either way- whether Megatron is genuinely reformed, still evil or somewhere in the middle there's a subtext to be found in his words that plays into it. Totally. I liked the ambiguity of that moment and, as you say, lends itsel...

Two minutes later: "Blow up that orbital platform!"

For now it doesn't seem like much since they co...
