I love Optimus's face palm. :D

First off, they are NOT PEOPLE! They are TRANSFORMERS and or Cybertronians and should be referred to as such. Starscream could have said "we want a trial" and everyone would have known who he was referring to.

Secondly, they don't have internal organs! They have PARTS. If the PARTS are damaged, they are either repaired, replaced or remade. New fans (after '84) like James Roberts keep coming up with dumb ideas like "oh, Ratchet can't get good hands because he was forged. The hands are irreplaceable." It's stupid! Who forged his body in the first place? Someone had to make his body. Mechanical parts just don't grow out of things (G2 budding doesn't make sense either). If something can be made, then it can be remade, plain and simple. Misguided attempts like this to make ROBOTS seem more like organic lifeforms are one of the many things that make this book Transformers IN NAME ONLY.

Lastly, I can't stand seeing Megatron with that Autobot symbol smeared on his chest. This is Fanfic at it's most fantastic and I can't wait until it is over. At this point I would rather see Megatron laying there with his tank parts replaced with chicken suit kibble rather than that Autobot symbol. :BOOM:

I don't know what you guys are complaining about. I can't wait to gobble this up. :KREMZEEK:

And yes, Prime's face palm was epic. :D

Actually, I'm quite intrigued. I'm hoping Rodimus gets some kind of retribution for being such a smug ass. Havn't been able to like him since he started his quest.

It only took 7 pages to remind me just how much I missed MTMtE. Funny how just this preview alone feels like a full fledged comic in their own right. I tried to resist, but what the hell, it's been waaaaaay too long without my fix. Also, Prowl being giddy is never a good sign :x

Here, here! I love the humor in MTMTE. Although I feel bad for Hot Rod that he's about to lose his ship to Megatron...

As to the bloke complaining about Transformers referring to themselves as "people," consider the fluidity of language. "They're my Cybertronians" just doesn't have the same effect as "my people," does it? And as to the bit about organs, I've NEVER viewed the Transformers as robots. They're just... not. They're mechanical lifeforms. There's a difference, there. As Arcee said in Transformers: Prime--can you build a small intestine? No, of course not. They have mechanical organs that are not easily replicated.

Yeah, I agree. For characters who walk around with missile launchers on their shoulders they sure do a lot of talking! So much talk, little action... James Roberts just doesn't get Transformers.

I have read previews for awhile, but haven't bought a comic in years. While I can honestly say that seeing the Autobot insignia on Megs is jarring I am intrigued. I might actually have to start picking up the full series to see why, how, and more importantly is it going to stick. Cybertronians have always been a mechanical alien race. I have entertained both ideas of creation some of them being forged/built and some who were created via biomechanical growth, in all honesty across the various continuities there is evidence to support both. :CON:

I, for one, am very intrigued. The Autobot insignia on Megatron is... Ridiculously awesome. It's just so out there, so radical for Megatron that I love it so much. The political intrigue of this arc is shaping up nicely, and I'm loving the humor they bring in. Nautica is hilarious with her incomprehension of humor, and Hot Rod with Optimus was hilarious.

"You broke the Matrix?"

Gold.

And you clearly don't get sarcasm and frustration, as my post was directed at you, and at your unchanging, predictable (hence boring) reaction. But hey, I've tried reasoning with you previously, and you just won't listen. I'm not saying you have to like the comics, but I am asking, and a lot of other users have too, for constructive posts.



Continue to offer your opinion in this way, I'll go back to ignoring you.

Yes not EASILY replicated, but they can be replicated... just not by Prime Ratchet because he was a Quack. G1 Sunbow Ratchet would have had no problem fixing the damages that Transformers from these other KO continuities have to suffer with.

And Starscream saying "they're my Cybertronians" sounds just fine to me.

So does this mean we'll see some Air Nomad, Earth Kingdom, and Fire Nation -themed Transformers? :lol:

I imagine with a name like Riptide he'd be a Decepticon.

Still looks cool. Will you post a picture of the high sped catamaran it transforms into?

I don't think there's a character design from Milne that I don't like.

Riptide is awesome. Seriously, more IDW-based toys need to be made ASAP.
