Just got done reading it. I do enjoy that these are a bit shorter. Easier to read in one sitting. This one... well, it's designed to time-skip, but I still felt that there was a chunk in the middle missing.

Still, worth the read. I look forward to the next one.

Huh. While there's very little set in stone about Toxitron, I always got a goofy vibe from him - be it the "haha, look at those colours and name!" he had originally or the "me am not Bizarro homage!" take in animated. This is certainly divergent! (Edit: and seems to fit with the release being originally planned for Nemesis Prime.)

Still a well done story though, although some aspects felt a bit artificial when trying to play him up as badass.

I wonder if the stuff about him keeping that head in his torso might lead in to the Combiner fiction (although he does discard the noggin later).

I guess we'll see, but it seems that the description how his chest opens up is incompatible with how the toy actually works

The story should answer your question ;)

If you can't wait though, here is an EXTREMELY spoiler-filled answer. Read at your own risk!

It's a little bit of both.

Part of the reason for the story was to let fans who could only purchase 5.0 build a Wreckage even if they didn't get the other TCC Wrecker figures. We wanted to make sure there was an official representation of a Wreckage with retail limbs in fiction and in art to justify fans building him that way. Even if the roster changed afterward.

Now... As for that ending...

When the Combiner War toys for 5.0 were decided as Wreckers to go with Impactor from 4.0, one of the very first thoughts was "Okay, they're Wreckers. Who can we kill?"

The original idea for who would die and how was very different, but Pete and I wanted at least one Wrecker to die and to have it be a sort of betrayal. I won't get too much into that original concept, but it wasn't Alpha Bravo and Offroad. Actually, Offroad was a very late substitution, but one that I can't be happier with!

Goddammit, that's not fair. Now Va'al's obsession with AB can be justified because he's a wonderful character!

Aaaaaa I love them.

so the final part of Masters and Mayhem will come out around the time Impactor and mystery figure of 4.0 yes?

I wonder if there will be a prose story explaining Double Pretender Megatron and Optimus? or mabe some prose stories/comics for The Mayhem attack Squad themselves?

I really hope there will be because these have been excellent so far. I didn't like the idea of a non-alternating Counterpunch at first but the story totally sold me on him.
... that is, ahem, if I could afford to get him.

If not, Optimus can still appear in the "Of Masters and Mayhem" magazine comics.

Ok now I've had some time to think over and re read this, here are my thoughts;
I like the inclusion of AB and OR, gives those who didn't order sub 4 have a complete combiner, gives the two bots a use if you ended up getting Quickslinger/Breakneck and mentions the scramble-city nature of combiners that hasn't really been explored much in CW-related fiction.


Good work.

As for the story, I also like how it explains the Thunder part of Thunder Mayhem, why it looks like Thunderwing out of Bludgeon... the story is getting interesting.

Looking forward to finding out who the remaining member may be...

I liked the story too. The part with Alpha Bravo sacrificing himself and his friend to stop a monster was very touching and very cool. That is character right there. I also like how they were pals :MAXIMAL:

Yeah, if you look at my original post, I made it three days ago. And I'm almost sure it's been up longer than that.

That's unfortunate to hear. The Club tried to vary the writers and genres/styles across the prose to widen appeal. Especially this year with seven writers working on three universes.
