Thanks for that tip. Was a nice i troductory issue. No spoilers, but really, IDW? Let's put the old stories in the back of the brand new issue of the brand new series. Thats not confusing at all...



Lmao I thought the same damn thing when I got to the end :lol:

Maybe put in a preview of ninja turtles of GI joe but hey, more power to a good series that was Optimus Prime and the rest of OG IDW-verse

I guess the easiest distinction we can make between the old IDW G1 continuity of 2005-2018 and this new one from 2019-onward would be "IDW1" and "IDW2".

I know this is a reboot but I can’t help this itching feeling that this is the new universe the Lost Light jumped into at the end of their series. If not I still hope to see Rodimus and Megatron’s crew again someday in a spin off series or something of the lot.

Weapon: Star Saber Sword
I just finished reading the first issue and so far, I have only one complaint- Why draw Megatron to look like he's thinking of an evil plan? His facial structure, most notably his slanted black-lined red eyes, are totally screaming "I have a plan and it is evil. Cue evil plan laughter! *Mwahahahahaha!*"
Favorite quotes from The Transformers: The Movie-

"Ride in style!" Hot Rod (ever humble)

"Such heroic nonsense" Megatron

"I have better things to do tonight than die" Springer

"Till the day that all are one" Optimus Prime

"I belong to no one!" Megatron

"This is bad comedy" Galvatron (seeing Starscream's last bid for control)

"Ba wee gra na weep nini bong" Universal Greeting

"Till all are one" Rodimus Prime

Does anyone else feel like Rubble is standing on the head of a dead titan when he's looking out over the landscape? It kinda looks like a decomposing brow but with a definite nose... Or just my imagination?

For the moment this is about it. Depends on how closely this gets to being Siege: The Comic. Their first continuity's longevity was such an outlier it would not surprise me to see this one run alongside Hasbro's "War for Cybertron" lines and wrap at that, but I'm sure it all depends on how it sells.

This is pretty exciting, since it would mean we are back to the traditional idea of media supporting a toyline and not the other way around.

ironhide does appear a little different in the shoulders from his toy though

Who gets the feeling that Rubble will eventually become Rumble? I mean, I didn’t realize he wasn’t Rumble until I was a quarter into the comic

Bumblebee was the best Transformers film yet, change my mind.
