I just really want him to show up in the comic and get a characterization. He is a great figure and the only one that really had nothing happen with him

I'm glad LL is finally getting a volume. I like volumes over individual issues a lot. I think I might just get that rather than fill in all the holes in my collection. (Though I will still grab issues if I like the cover art :P)

Still need some of the MTMTE volumes, RIP my wallet between this and the live action movie toys.

So I kind of screamed at the cover of Lost Light #10. I was theorising that the Protectobots + Mirage would come back and I'm SO happy they did -- First Aid's become one of my favourite characters and I love seeing them not just back but apparently really friggin' pissed! Defensor's totally gonna tear the ship in half.

I do wonder why the Protectobots have their original designs instead of the CW ones though.

...why would they? they only have the combined form in common with the toy, save for Blades. they were never in the comic in their toy forms pretty much.

Eh, I just kinda expected they would I guess -- especially when most Combiner teams in IDW now have their CW designs; Aerialbots, Torchbearers, Combaticons, Constructicons... pretty sure the Stunticons too.

Eh, well, the aerialbots were out of action for a long time, the torchbearers appeared in their designs since they only had one, the constructicons are still about the same as they have been, minor changes applying, and the stunticons have also been out of the picture for a while mostly, so it wasn't that farfetched plus we rarely see them out of combined mode. And Swindle did not follow his design, he stuck with what he had and the other Combaticons basically showed up for the first time in forever, so they had fairly good reasons. the protectobots have appeared mainly in MTMTE in a certain design and they stuck with it, save for combined mode

True, true - just makes them the odd one out so it stuck out to me more.

Not that I mind, these designs are great either way :)

It would have made it sense to say changing them into a Combiner team changed their bodies somewhat.

I'm not buying Lost Light currently, but I will pick up this issue. Definitely hope Blades and Rook are asking for the ride.

Wait. Who's the pink cybertronian on the "First Strike" covers? Is she working for the good guys or the bad guys?

If you are talking about First Strike issue 3, that would be Pyra Magna. She is one of the good guys despite her grumpy expression.

I think they might mean her. We don't necessarily know yet, but common consensus seems to be that this is the Cybertronian form of a Micronauts villain.
