Looks like Metroplex to me.

Huh, I hope this Annual 2012 gets included in the eventual trades. I hate having to pick up singles that they skip out on but are still canon to the main storyline, like Infestation.

Action master Grimlock on Nebulos, I can feel the story surrounding the "heads" that were left on Nebulos being addressed and the return of Scorponok and Fortress Maximus.

Excited much

The two Doctor Who annuals that have been published thus far have been collected. The recent Cobra Commander annual is being collected in that month's Cobra Command TPB. I'm pretty sure that means this will be collected in a future trade.

Makes me wonder if I should buy this, especially since I'm not collecting the individual MTMTE issues.
