Beast A-Hunting
(Spoiler free-ish)


Synopsis

THE BEAST WITHIN! After the Fall of CYBERTRON, GRIMLOCK and his DINOBOT allies are tasked with protecting the last remaining Cybertronians from the dangers of the demolished planet. But as time passes, GRIMLOCK grows more and more uneasy with the rage and power that he’s forced to hold back. Can the AUTOBOT leader learn to control his power or will the beast take over?

Transformers: Prime Beast Hunters #3 Review
Hm. Let's take a guess


Story

Last issue concluded the two-part story arc with cyber-vampires and robo-betrayals, written by Mairghread Scott. With this issue, writing duties pass on to Mike Johnson (though both plot the series and stories together), for another two-part arc, as stated at BotCon - with a bit of a tie-in in around issue 6.

Transformers: Prime Beast Hunters #3 Review
Yep, that's the one


First impression on the writing, though, is not as happy as the previous two issues. The dialogue appears to be flat, somehow, and there's a lot of it when Swoop's involved, it seems. The exchanges between other characters further on in the story seem flatter, too, which really clashes with the story they're trying to tell.

Transformers: Prime Beast Hunters #3 Review
Says so himself


The story is decent, dealing with the aftermath of previous issues, the previous Rage of the Dinobots series, references to the animated Prime series, and seeding for more to come, either next issue or further down the line. It will be interesting to see how the plot will fit in just two issues, as there are some pretty big (ha!) developments in this one, though not entirely surprising.

Transformers: Prime Beast Hunters #3 Review
Oooh, what could it be?


Overall, not a bad plot, but the dialogue really detracts from its full enjoyment, in my opinion. It may be the case that reading it again once the next issue is out may enhance it again, but so far, a little disappointed.

Art

Agustin Padilla is still on artwork, and I have to say, there are some moments where it feels a little rushed, which is a shame - when Padilla is good, he is really good. And you can see that when the big (ha!) revelations take place in the issue. Really good.

Transformers: Prime Beast Hunters #3 Review
But I won't show you


The credit, though, also goes to colourist Priscilla Tramontano. Most of the story takes place underground, and playing with lights and darkness does not look easy, especially not with some of the wider shots. And, as usual, Tom B. Long on letters delivers, conveying the bestiality (cf. Monstrosity) of some of the characters when needed, and playing beautifully with soundwords.

Transformers: Prime Beast Hunters #3 Review
Indeed


A bit of a drop in consistency at times, but the artwork is good, with some real gems here and there. The darker tone of the first two issues has yet to be fully re-established, but the whole artistic team do a sterling job of getting it across with shots and shades.

Thoughts
Spoilerish ahead

The dialogue seems to have dimmed a little, and the artwork feels strangely rushed in places, though the organic creatures in the story are beautifully crafted and coloured. I wasn't as blown away until I reached that section of the story, in all honesty, so give it a shot!

Transformers: Prime Beast Hunters #3 Review
I spy, with my little eye...


I'm a little disappointed after being pleasantly surprised with the first two issues, though the story does seem to be working towards something really big (ha!). And the panel on the first page - hinting at something else to come, or past events we've seen? Next month might tell!

Seibertron.com member chuckdawg1999 has following up his review of Consturctobts Starscream with a look at his wave mate Ironhide. Enjoy his review embedded below.


Taking a second look at this new line I've come to a few realizations: first, all the molds share the same core transformation, the only differences between figures comes from the add on parts. Secondly, I don't really see the need for four different price points. With that said Ironhide is a fun figure that has all the articulation we can expect from the line in an interesting truck form. While I don't enjoy the truck mode as much as I do Starscreams' jet I can recommend this figure for a pick up if you want to try the line.

New Look
(Spoiler free-ish)


Synopsis

BATTLETIDE! Opposing factions and forces meet head on, as the battle for
Cybertron (and indeed the future) begins in earnest. BLUDGEON, SOUNDWAVE, GALVATRON, STARSCREAM, and—caught in the middle—the Autobots, most crucially their greatest warrior ULTRA MAGNUS! And HOT ROD meets his maker. Literally.

Transformers: ReGeneration One #93 Review
Or even legen...


Story

In issue 92, Hot Rod and the Dinobots were headed towards Cybertron's core, as the surface was under the attack of Soundwave and the Decepticons, with the Wreckers and Ultra Magnus defending their home planet. Meanwhile Bludgeon and Galvatron are on their way too, and that's where we start with issue 93.

Transformers: ReGeneration One #93 Review
Insert obvious joke here


And it's a Furman-tastic issue at that: major players play major roles, with favourite characters becoming really really interesting and the plots seeding what might develop with issue #0, too. And, finally, we're getting closer to the heart of the events, with everyone almost on Cybertron.

Transformers: ReGeneration One #93 Review
Gettit? Heart? Core?


The Bludgeon aspects of the story are only briefly worked on, but the multiple strands do seem to be converging into one single narrative. Same with Galvatron, though there are some twists, albeit predictable.

Transformers: ReGeneration One #93 Review
We all know what happens when you monologue like that


The stories all seem to blend really well, here, and the narrative is becoming more and more cohesive and unified, without losing a degree of originality. And old-time readers and fans will get several kicks out of references, subtle and explicit, to some previous work in the franchise!

Art

This issue marks Guido Guidi's debut on the ReGeneration One artistic team, at least for the interior art (as he provided all B covers in the run so far). And it's good. Real good. There's one panel in particular which I personally adored, working amazingly well with Furman's 'timey' script, and that I'll leave for readers to discover.

Transformers: ReGeneration One #93 Review
What? What can you see?!


Not all the credit goes to Guidi, though: Baskerville's inks make the pencilwork as similar to the previous style as possible, while still keeping their original take on it, and JP Bove's colours, always the highlight of these issues, really help in the effect, retaining their usual eye-sparkling qualities.

Transformers: ReGeneration One #93 Review
That's space, and it looks mouth-watering


The artistic continuity, which seems to be the new fan-thing, is kept beautifully intact, and Guidi, Baskerville and Bove do a great job of making everything blend gorgeously together. Mowry's lettering is consistent if not overly creative, but everything just works.

Thoughts
Spoilerish ahead

This is Furman at his best. The characters are there, the plots are there, the references are there. It's all there. There are hints at several continuities that have been explored, or might still be, and it all works so nicely with the new artistic team.

Transformers: ReGeneration One #93 Review
The old-style editorial notes are there, too!


Definitely pick this one up, even if it's just for the one panel that I still will not spoil. Or the other one. Or that one. Though that one's cool too. Oh, and that one's nice as well. I think you know where I'm going with this..

Seibertron.com member chuckdawg1999 gives us a review of Transformers Constructbots Starscream. Note that the figure's head comes with a factory paint error, this seems to be quite common for this set. Check it out embedded below.

This is an awesome first step for this new line. Pictures don't do the figures justice. Articulation is top notch and transformation is really spot on. Get some of these figures as soon as you can!

The set gives us Kreon representations of the five characters featured in this year's Machine Wars: Termination box set; Strika, Obsidian, Hoist, Skywarp, and Megaplex.

Although there isn't a lot here for the price this is a fun little set that I can recommend for the fan or to complete a collection.
