Yeah the sweat was the 1st thing that caught my eye. Any idea how and when this series will be released in trades? And will Galaxies really be put together with it?

I think there has been a, listing for the first TPB on Amazon
, and so far, yes Galaxies will be contained within the mainline TPB.

What I found amusing looking at the cover was that I was trying to figure out why Greenlight had been paired with Arcee, then I remembered that we got Greenlight as part of the Selects line (under Siege) and of course, Arcee is coming out in Earthrise. Coincidence?

Probably :lol: I haven't even checked to see if this Arcee looks anything like the Earthrise release

The cover you didnt realise was Greenlight is because its Gauge not Greenlight on the cover.

Loved this issue the Arcee transforming and catching Gauge sequence was a highlight panel as was the whole Arcee takes no prisoners scene.

Technically, Greenlight was part of the regular Siege line, just exclusive to Amazon. Her retool, Lancer, was part of Selects, though. As I recall, Earthrise Arcee is straight up her G1 cartoon design. This looks more IDW Arcee to me.

Soo, several months abmgo I designed an interior schematic for Metroplex and was faced with the same question posed in this review: Do aliens have Stairs?

The problem is not so much that they can turn into vehicles, even for a species who can do that, you sren't going to turn into a car in the middle of your Hotel just go up to the nect level. The question is that unlike Humans, there is a VERY large range of heights and builds with no consistancy. Unlike Humans where most adults are in the 4-6ft range, we have seen Cybertronians deviate from 4-8feet to over 40, and thats just the normal guys, not counting Combiners or dudes like Omega Supreme. And on top of that, legs are not as consistantly proportionate either, so you have guys like Ultra Magnus and Bulkhead who are close to the same height, but Bulkhead's legs are half as long. And someone like Override who turns into a Motorcycle and comes up to Bulkhead's WAIST has to use the same flight of steps. So whom do you size the steps for?

A Ramp, meanwhile, is more versatile, but comes with the inherent steepness issue.

Issue 21 drops today and it is very apparent that this Optimus is Siege Galaxy Upgrade Optimus without the extra armor. That incredibly angular truck cab is clearly that Voyager Optimus and not Siege or Earthrise.
