We have recently seen a review for Kre-O Microchanger combiner Devastator from ProtoRetro, now Youtube user Mitch Santona brings us reviews for the other gestalts including Superion, Bruticus and Predaking. All the reviews are embedded below.
Transformers. Crossovers. Not two words a typical Transformers comic fan wants to hear in the same sentence, but alas, what appears to be annual IDW tradition is on our front doorstep once more. Given to us by what is now a well-rounded cast of Transformers writers, artists, and editors alike, is Mars Attacks: The Transformers! If you're looking for a Christopher Nolan-esque campy, serious and overdramatic theme, or a continuation to the current Ongoing TFs series here in this comic, then you have found the wrong place. If you like cheesy Martian themes, mixed in with over the top, wacky and silly fun, then this one is for you.
It's hard to not take a critical look at this comic, especially as this comic features the likes of Guzman, Perez and McCarthy, all of which who have made their mark on the Transformers Ongoing brand. However, it's fair to say in order for you to enjoy this, you have to accept that this is a parody of the G1 universe and it is essentially poking fun at itself. That is what makes it great! Unlike previous crossovers, which were essentially inkfodder for the printers, Mars Attacks: The Transformers is enjoyable because it doesn't take itself seriously.
I find it funny that by taking a look at Mars Attacks, it reminds me why the live-action Transformers movies always bugged me. If the fictional Martians can't do anything to the Transformers - Okay, maybe I gave away what happens in this comic, but did you really think any being to call Cybertron their motherworld would lose to these slimy scum? Anyways, yes, martians versus Transformers. It's essentially much like humans versus Transformers. As much as it is lovely to have human characters in the Transformers verse; as they provide a mirror, in which we can see ourselves being there; and a window, in which we can see how they feel, they absolutely stand no chance against these hulking behemoths of steel. That's why More Than Meets The Eye and Robots In Disguise are so darned good. They provide an outlook for the characters that we truly care about - the giant robots.
Cue more Transformers, less influential humans, kapeesh?

If you've been following Transformers comics as of late, then you would have noticed that there has been a resurgance in the Robots In Disguise camp. No longer More Than Meets The Eye's little-kid brother, the RID series is picking up heat and is becoming a well polished and refined Wednesday read. In recent issues, the political powder keg in Cybertron has been foaming over of the top. With a year full of comics in the books, and a new year ahead of us, it's fair to say that RID #13 is the trigger that starts it all.
While some may argue that it isn't Transformers if there aren't Autobots vs Decepticons, in IDW's Transformers, we've had our fair share of clashing between the factions. Ultimately peace was found through a controversial Ongoing series. However when the peace consists of the Autobots acting as sovereigns, and the other factions, the NAILS and Decepticons, being oppressed, then the peace is far from ideal.
Enter Megatron. With his return in RID #11, the cohibitation between 'bots, 'cons and NAILs set up by Bumblebee and friends is slowly evaporating. Old habits return, and old factions are revisited. One of the biggest flaws in the Autobots' reign over the reborn Cybertron is that they were content with playing politics, which slowly allowed their enemies to regain their strength in the shadows.
Prowl has been an intriguing character - some argue that he's not being written as he should be - some believe he's a gimmick in this series. I think Barber and Roberts have done a great job in writing him, they've molded him into something real - his actions in issue #13 certainly explain his actions ever since Ongoing split into RID and MTMTE.
RID #13 is really good - Barber and co. have evolved their game. It's worth the price and just, wow, it's a shocker.
