Until that comes in, 2/1 or 2/8 or 3/1 for [insert book name here] is as good of a guess as any.

iBooks is a weird one. Till a couple months ago Wednesday releases happened at 10pm central on Tuesdays, now it's 11pm and once in a while they really screw up on something. I got MTMTE #16 back in 2013 4 weeks before it came out. I was getting RID that night and there it was. I remember when remain In Light part 3 was part 2 for over a month.

Won't spoil anything ofcourse since it's not out legitimately for another week

Did the Constucticons just decide to give up on finding a sixth member and form a one-legged Devastator?

Also, considering that this involves IDW storyline, I thought I might bring this up: I've been reading summaries of IDW story arcs for a while, so I finally decided to actually buy the books. I currently have Last Stand of The Wreckers, Phase Two collections 1-4, and the phase 1 compendium consisting of collections 1 and 2. Is there any other stories you would suggest I read?

Nope, they're currently using Scoop - as seen in this panel in the last comic.

Image

I'm not entirely sure how they done it in-universe, but the fact Devvy has a new design which merges aspects of both his CW toy and the AHM design along with making Scoop as a leg more obvious and prominent makes me happy.

I certainly hope Scott takes this chance to actually give some story to Screamer and Windblade. There was always a hint, I'd like to see more focus on it.

Review of IDW Transformers: Till All Are One #7

Postby Va'al » Wed Feb 08, 2017 12:22 pm

Motto: "Till All Are Pun!"
Strika a Pose
(Spoiler free-ish)



Synopsis
As Windblade and her team fight their way through Elita-1’s Titan, Carcer, they face opposition at every turn to stop them from awakening the sleeping giant… and they soon find out why!

Image
eeep


Story

Till All Are One is still keeping up the tension and the storyline that was so quickly done with in the Titans Return mini-arc (the trade was only out these past weeks, with MTMTE and Transformers joining the One-shot - all of these, their casts, and the covers and credits can be found in our database entries), and it does it in a very natural way, not forgetting its other sources and bringing in some very intriguing twists.

Image
Fight me


The major players, as we know are Starscream and Windblade, the Council and Cybertron on one side, Elita, Obsidian and Strika, and her crew on the other (there is also the faction of undead titans, I guess, like whatever - again, full cast can be found here, though beware of some spoilers), and it's in the contrasts between the characters and the writing of their interactions that the meatier stuff comes out.

Image
With the ever-present Bumbleghost


In particular, Strika and Obsidian get a nice dose of spotlight each this month, with the latter already playing a fairly major, menacing role on the Council as the bearer of bad news (backed up with facts and data), and we also finally see what the former can do, dipping into both of their seeding in the Beast Machines series.

Image
..dang


What we also get in the issue, which is exciting and almost a little surprising, I'll admit, is a direct link to information and story development that were achieved in the Revolution tie-in issue for this series, in the form of the issue's resolution/cliffhanger... and more on that below.

Art

Sara Pitre Durocher delivers yet another pearl of linework and layouts, with some truly memorable Starscream and Elita-1 condescending looks, and some impressively expressive faceplated faces (Obsidian and Strika are but two). The concluding pages echo the very first Windblade series, too, with some other hints towards the Revolution tie-in, again.

Image
He so smug, SO smug


Joana Lafuente adds to the excellent linework performance, once more, too - the panel below I believe proves it marvellously: the lighting, the shades of purple, the way they work with the inking beneath them, almost drowning out everything else in the image, all goes to show how the visual language of the medium can be fully employed.

Image
kchoom indeed


Likewise, the lettering in the example above is an integral part to the frame (and the storytelling), actually adding weight to the word itself rather than just remaining sound - Tom B. Long does this often, and still well. The covers are also this month a full IDW TF grouping too, with Pitre Durocher on main, Priscilla Tramontano on Chromia's criminal cover, and Joana Lafuente (thumbnail) joining the theme of her other two pieces this month.

Thoughts
Spoilerish ahead

Till All Are One was ramping up the tension since issue 5. It took a potentially good story seedling in Titans Return and made sure it took roots in the ongoing series, while also connecting previous aspects of Transformers lore, the expanded mythos we are encountering across IDW, and bringing in a new-but-old major player, if the last page is to be believed.

Image
there's those dead Titans I mentioned


We will not know what makes Elita and her crew so adamant to protect their Titan-ship, until another month at least, but we can enjoy just how hard, how strenuously, how viciously, how well laid out and constructed each scene is, and how the visual and verbal languages are co-deployed for this month. Very, very good indeed.

So my big thing is... how are they making this work titan wise? Metroplex registered the titan as Tempo, Elita called it Carcer, and it is actually Vigilem? Was Plex wrong? Why would Elita even want to employ the evil prime's titan?

Well, Elita and her crew haven't exactly been depicted as angels either.

But my personal theory? Elita didn't want him activated; Obsidian was clearly distressed at his activation - like, beyond just disobedience of orders; this was 'this is the worst possible catastrophe you could perform' distressed - and he's even been referred to as a Prison Ship.

Elita has an intensely strong army - whose commander can apparently face off the goddamn Devastator - and if we're to assume some strong sense of duty (not out of the blue considering her colony's general philosophy)... if they came across the personal Titan of one of the greatest villains in Cybertron's history, surely the best way to keep them prisoner would be to de-activate them and keep them under your constant watch by being within them?

Oh gosh. I had the same question. My first thought, back when Elita One called him Carcer, was that she and the Carcerians were essentially holding Tempo hostage and mode locked in his starship form, and that Carcer was dead or his people had overthrown Tempo.

With this though, man. Maybe the Carcerians had imprisoned Vigilem to keep him from contacting or serving Liege Maximo and destroying the universe. When Elita said last issue "You can die. I can die. The galaxy can burn in flame and darkness. But Carcer will never transform." maybe she meant that because Carcer IS dead and can't transform.

Makes me REALLY curious to find out who the massive Titan on the cover to #8 is now. Thankfully we'll only have to wait a couple of weeks.

THIS. :APPLAUSE:

Though I am curious why, if the Carcerians are so powerful, Obsidian was so easily taken down by Tigatron, Moonracer and Fireshot. Granted, Strika is not only built like a tank, she IS a freaking tank, but you'd think Obsidian would have put up more of a fight than he did.

"Carcer" is Latin for prison. At least, according to TFWiki.

From what little we've seen of Tigatron, that kitty ain't no slouch. Or it's just the most powerful of Cybertronian Relics: good ol Plot Armor ;)

On a different note, maybe it's a prison ship because that's where Maximo was keeping bots as candidates for domestication while he did his messed up stuff on the farm? This is to assume they're borrowing some stuff from The Covenant of Primus but from what we saw in MTMTE 47, 56, and 57 with the Roboids I'd guess that's the journey we're on.

I'm also going to assume that Carcer is dead, Tempo is dead, and Vigilem is using one of their bodies since we've seen that Titan brains can kinda just get jumped from one place to another.
