Seibertron.com member chuckdawg1999 is back with another Transformers Constructbots review. This time he gives us a look at the always popular Soundwave. Did he translate will into the the construction line? Check out the review below.

OK, serious talk time. By this point most people are aware just what to expect from the Constructbots line. At their core they're the same robots, same transformations, the only difference is the number of extra parts you get to embellish the core frame. Soundwave is really cool but unless you're a big fan of the character I'm not sure I can recommend it over one of the cheaper kits.

Seibertron.com member chuckdawg1999 has received and reviewed Transformers Generations Deluxe Thundercracker. The figure is a repaint of Fall of Cybertron Deluxe Starscream and comes packed with a copy of Transformers Spotlight: Thundercracker from IDW Publishing. Check out his review below.

chuckdawg1999 wrote:OK I admit it, I'm a sucker for blue. Take that away and we have the stock FOC Seeker mold. Whether or not you like that mold will factor into your opinion of this figure. For my money it's a fun mold and worth a double, or possibly triple dip.

Synopsis

MEGATRON UNCHAINED! In the early days of the war, MEGATRON—exiled on JUNKION—battles to reclaim the throne of CYBERTRON. But the TERRORCONS have other ideas… Meanwhile, GRIMLOCK and the DINOBOTS threaten OPTIMUS PRIME’s fledgling republic!

Transformers: Monstrosity #3 (of 4) Review
Seeing eye-to-eye


Story
This is the penultimate issue of the digital-first series, being released as four prints before they're collected in the trade. The actual series ended just a couple of weeks back, so this review may not come as news to all readers! We're dealing with Megatron 'surviving' on Junkion, Optimus struggling on Cybertron and the Dynobots kind of thrown in for good measure, with Scorponok gloating in the background.

Transformers: Monstrosity #3 (of 4) Review
And these two, helping to recap


The three main plots are still standing, though the Megatron story is getting repetitive and I have no idea what it's trying to lead up to at this point. Optimus' dealings with the population of Cybertron trying to escape is worked out a little better, but it's the giant monster in the basement that is clearly supposed to be the kicker.

Transformers: Monstrosity #3 (of 4) Review
Remember him?


The rest of the story is a bit lacklustre, with some not particularly good dialogue. Scorponok and Megatron suffer from Bond-villain syndrome, and Pentius has some very weird moments. Optimus manages to save himself at times, and Grimlock has some good moments too, but not enough to make up for the rest, even in light of his own sub-plot.

Transformers: Monstrosity #3 (of 4) Review
What, no Star Trek quotes?


The multiple plots do seem to be reaching a touching point, if anything, and it looks like issue 4 will have a lot to deal with in terms of storylines and loose ends. I am quite curious to see how they will be executed, and am hoping for something a little better than this issue.

Art

As much as Ramondelli's work has improved, massively, since early work, and I really enjoyed it in issues 1 and 2, this one has too much going on to be able to figure out the actual happenings, at times. Megatron's battle with the Terrorcons is a big mess of faces and smoked colours, unfortunately, and there are some bad perspective issues here and there.

Transformers: Monstrosity #3 (of 4) Review
A bad case of rubber nosecone


Where Ramondelli does shine is in organic-looking and big creatures - and we get some of that here. What I'm also a big fan of, once again, is the letter work by Long and Lee, which adds to the 'monstrous' concept of the overall story, and is terribly enjoyable.

Transformers: Monstrosity #3 (of 4) Review
RARGH


It's a shame to see the artwork slipping after two fairly successful issues, and now that we're this close to the end. Unfortunately, it can't do much to pick up the story either, and there are some errors in speech-bubble placing that further hinder full enjoyment.

Thoughts
Spoilerish ahead

So yes, the third issue does not strike as well as the previous two, even with some good shots of Grimlock's problem (and an explanation!) and the final creature from the deep. Megatron's plot is apparently solved, though I feel we haven't gained that much from it except for some bashing and a cape.

Transformers: Monstrosity #3 (of 4) Review
..er..


I am curious to see how it will end, if there'll be some more reasoning behind Megatron and Scorponok's actions,

Me, me, m-- Rattrap?
(Spoiler free-ish)



Synopsis

NEW CYBERTRON! It’s a brand new day—and STARSCREAM is in charge! But running a planet isn’t as easy as it looks… if BUMBLEBEE couldn’t do it, why does the former DECEPTICON think he can?

Transformers: Robots in Disguise #20 Review]
He has a plan!


Story
Remember how last issue was about Orion Pax and Gorlam Prime? And the one before about the factions now residing outside Iacon and Arcee, and before that it was Shockwave and D(r)eadwing? If you haven't read them yet, you're in luck, as issue 20 still does not advance the plot much!

Transformers: Robots in Disguise #20 Review
You're welcome


Starscream really does take centre stage with this issue, and with him arguably being the best character to come out of Robots in Disguise, that is definitely not a bad thing. Barber has swapped his monologue by captions technique by coming out and calling the issue 'Three Monologues', allowing him to let Starscream speak, pretty much to himself, the whole time.

Transformers: Robots in Disguise #20 Review
And to cameras!


It feels a little better than the usual floating voices, and there are ways of showing a 'silent audience' like Metalhawk's body which almost justify it. But Screamer-fest aside, very little happens in the issue, except for the introduction of upcoming toy Scoop and potential upcoming toy Rattrap.

Transformers: Robots in Disguise #20 Review
Who also has a distinct.. er.. voice


The characterisation and hints at future developments aren't bad, and I enjoyed it more than other issues along the same lines. But the story really did not do much, at all. Rattrap is a peculiar choice, in terms of personality, especially when placed next to Starscream, and Scoop felt almost unnecessary.

Art

Visually, though, it works really well. From Metalhawk's body and the other ..incapacitated characters throughout the issue to the newcomers Rattrap and Scoop, and the play between blacked-out Iacon and the city once power is restored - it's all really good looking. And Griffith shows off his skills on page 6, with some excellent panel work.

Transformers: Robots in Disguise #20 Review
Boy, does Starscream love that pose


The lighting differences mentioned above really pop out thanks to Priscilla Tramontano's colouring work. The story progresses from complete darkness in the heart of night to the first lights of dawn, via artificial lighting coming back in operation - and yes, you can feel it in the tones and shades.

Transformers: Robots in Disguise #20 Review
J.J. Abrams directed this scene


Shawn Lee's lettering work gets a few particularly creative moments too, which is very nice to see. The three artists working on this issue have done a stellar job to make a fairly static story particularly aesthetically pleasing, and if anything, pick the issue up for the look of it.

Thoughts
Spoilerish ahead

Abandoning the caption monologue was a good strategy, though I'm not sure how I feel about still having the monologues anyway. On the plus side, they fit the character of Starscream perfectly. The art on the issue, also Starscream-centric, is stunning, and if Starscream Starscream, then Starscream Starscream Starscream. So Starscream. Starscream?

Transformers: Robots in Disguise #20 Review
Starscream


Starscream-fest aside, though, it does little to the plot other than introduce two-three characters and hint at some stuff, and it then tries to make up for it with the final page reveal - which is nice, but the gimmick is getting a bit tiresome. Still, as I said, I enjoyed it more than previous similar issues, and Starscream really does shine in this.
