Nice review Va'al. Your breakdowns are always well done. I read the preview issue we got and came away somewhat dissatisfied with how the whole thing finished. But I am looking forward to more from this point... Like the next RID that they tease at the end.

I like the art but don't love it. Sometimes I felt a little lost as to who is who, or what is happening, but overall it is energetic and telling as you described.

A good series. An interesting new character. Looking forward to more.

You know, I felt the issue kinda...fell flat. I was actually shocked by the reveal, which is a definite plus, how Windblade dealt with it was...nothing? I mean, Chromia basically betrayed Windblade and everything she stands for, and then Windblade just like shrugs it off and plays it like she is a parent telling a child not to tell a lie again.

However, I find that this is also one of my favorite TF stories to date. A nice miniseries that packs punch, doesn't drag on, and is stunning to look at.

Well finally read the issue, the big reveal didn't have much impact I thought, and I imagined better motive. I do like the Starscream and Windblade relationship reversal at the end there. All in all I liked this miniseries, from the beautiful art to the characters themselves. I also loved the call out to beast wars ;) Here's hoping to see Air Hammer get her chance to shine at IDW.

Okay, so, I've been reading the series again in order to see it hollistically. If anyone else has done so, does it seem as though Starscream knew who the culprit was the whole time?

I don't think he knew at all, but it's rather down to him being a very adaptable opportunist: he clearly thought it was Rattrap, even just for the throwaway line about it. Issue #3 shows his honest surprise, though whether it is at it not being Windblade trying to blow herself up or at something else, I do not know.

We've seen it with the Metrotitan, with the NAILS, in pretty much every iteration of the character- he's quick, he learns, he knows how to spin things his way, with varying degrees of success. And he probably sees how others can be like him, and only takes it as natural if that actually happens. :-?

I think Windblade valued Chromia's friendship above all else and understood why her friend did it: to save their own home. But as a Speaker she had to make the decision to stand above her own desires and help all Cybertronians. Though that seems counterintuitive, I believe Windblade made the decision to spare Chromia because in her heart she felt her friend was doing what she did for the right reasons and it'll better for her if they both stand together in their brave new world.

That's true, I now remember his line about how Ratrap should show more initiative. But to your point about his opportunism, I love how he has evolved from somewhat of a lunatic in most early fiction into what he is now. He may still want to take power whenever he can, but he does it in more intelligent ways than just (star)screaming "Decepticons! Let's betray Megatron and then get our asses kicked!"

Exactly! This series, even more than RID, has shown how effective Starscream actually is (even with Windblade at the end playing the game). And I am *very* curious to see what happens with Wheeljack's return in #34.

I'm still expecting some sort of dealing with Chromia in the next installment of the story, either in RID or the next Windblade mini-series. In some way, at least! The issue left it a bit too hanging.

With Chromia, I'm not expecting too much in the way of resolution, it looked like she herself had a lot to think about. As such I think she'll be even more loyal the next time we see her. I'm more wondering about the colonies and their role in the future (like say elegant chaos and combiner wars).

Now as for screamer, this is the best version of him I think, it's been a while that we seen him like this. I only hope that he doesn't end up throwing all this development away in the near future by joining back up with the cons.

Well, Rhinox has been shown on one of the covers, and we have a toy for him.

I know Sarah is really happy to be working on TFP Knockout's design, which makes me think we'll see him too.

Knock-Out will be a fun addition, even better if he got to interact with the boyz from the lost light :lol:

With Rhinox, now I understand how controversial a choice it would be, what about if they took his character from Beast Machines (Tankor). Not everyone from the colonies is going to be good...unless thats how they add Gobots into the mix :P

Transformers Windblade: The Last City Listed by Penguin Random House

We have some exiting news for Windblade fans, a new graphic novel is on the way. It will be a long wait until it comes out on Febuary, 18th, 2018 which is it's current release date. However, it is listed as having a whopping 220 pages!

Have a look about what the listing says about this book:

The original fan-made Transformer stars in her own series. She cuts straight to the truth and no obstacle is going to stand in her path.

Built by the fans, Windblade is a force for good, who never fails to do the right thing. But what happens when she’s forced to work with the Decepticon Starscream to recruit new colonies to the Council of Worlds?


If you are a fan of Windblade, check out this variant cover for TAAO #12 and if you are in Canada, her Titans Return Deluxe Figure is hitting shelves!

That would be my guess also.

I really do enjoy the paperback volumes. They feel like they hold up a little better than the single issues. I'm one of those people that likes to read their books over and over again so having things that hold up well are a must. There is just something really great about having a paper book in my hands. Its worth the extra few bucks over digital imho.

(Not knocking digital, I love humble bundle!)
