So the whole issue was a fairly decent read.
I still don't like some of the designs, especially some of them influenced by the Animated aesthetic (bulky top half, skinny legs).
Drift continues to be a wanker. Plain and simple. Thankfully Ratchet can see that, Ratchet became even cooler to me for that.
The comedy continues ... I laughed a few times, Swerve had a lot of one liners, Skids' confusion at things and forgetting he was holding a hand gun, Brainstorm discovering he's not the ship's genius and not being able to tell whether it's Shock or Ore.
Whirl is ... well the guy has never had little characterisation in the past, and his story with Cyclonus could be a good.
And Drift ... bloody hell he's a wanker ... oh wait, I already mentioned that.
