Oh god, puppy-owning terrible-screenwriting Thundercracker! He might just dethrone stair-pusher-downer Skywarp as my favorite Seeker now.

I'm not particularly familiar with writing styles, but I get the impression that there are a whole heap being used all across the board of Transformers comics, and I'm very impressed.

Also, Thundercracker's awesome. :D

No one's mentioned this yet, so it falls to me to point out the obvious...

Is that supposed to be Marissa Fairborne in an EDC uniform?

I REALLY hope this is the Generations Arcee toy coming out in September. She FINALLY looks like a car.

I'm almost touched...

Fortunately such moments pass quickly.

Quickstrike, scrap him.



Er, I mean, I'm really digging this. Best Thundercracker ever.

He named his dog "Buster."

Nice. Next Witwicky name checked off the list.

OH GOSH THAT IS AWESOME.

I mean, that is awesome. I can't put into words how much I love Thundercracker more than I used to. I mean, I would totally hang out with this guy.

"Your ease of communication is rather off-putting to me, yet deep down I hope that our casual acquaintance will blossom into something more romantic in nature."

I gotta use that one.



"sleek/attractive/snazzy/hot like an F-22 fighter jet"

This one too.

Why does TT keep on changing alt modes? Isn't that going to put a strain on his superstructure?

This is absolutely wonderful. I love Thundercracker the best out of all the seekers. Not only have they given him intelligence and introspection, but integrity and independence! OY ALLITERATION!! Seriously though, I love how this scene builds. It's so much juicier than a lot of the contrived story they've come up with just to try and include certain bots for the sake of it and to feel like it needs to go somewhere. Seriously! Seinfeld was successful! It goes to show that you can just have hilarious situations with characters once you have actually built them into something relatable and memorable. Then you can let the feels ensue. Well done well done.

Thundercracker is a pathetic idiot AND he's been on Earth too long. He's starting to use words like "actually" and "literally" like a friggin' Hipster ... I can't stand it :BOOM:

Mah, the more I read Thundercrackers story over and over, the more I see it as the actual writer's little jab at fanfiction writers. Right down to the crap names of the OC's. I'm loving this! XD

Thundercracker was not much more than a goon in G1 anyway, seeing him characterized like this makes me smile. :D

Almost as if it's intentionally mirroring it, huh? Image

I love that 'Cracker is back in his F-22 body. He looks good!

Although, I have been enjoying the general lack of Earth-based stories, but at least Costa is out of the picture right now. I mean, he's a pretty decent writer - just not for Transformers. His work on G.I. Joe is actually pretty good.

But this looks interesting.

Anyone else notice he's not sporting a Decepticon insignia?

Using words like "actually" and "literally" don't make you a hipster, it means that you are literate and ACTUALLY have more than 2 functioning brain-cells that you can rub together to form a cohesive thought followed up with a coherent sentence.

I can see where you might get confused though. It's a dying art in this day and age right up there with people capable of walking and chewing gum at the same time. Sadly, the Internet has caused Cranial Rectosis to spread like wild fire and infect our young people so there appears to be no hope left for future generations. ;)

the problems of the world are due to people who think money is a destination or a goal
money is a vehicle and if u see it otherwise you are just its slave.
