Methinks a certain website has made the name Grindor not as appealing of a name as it was in the early 2000’s.

I'm not sure what you mean, but okay. I think the name was last used in the 09 movie for the Blackout double?

Theres a dating app called Grindr, if I'm not getting my wires crossed its used by the LQBTG+ community.

There's also a handy tool called a "Grinder" so you know ... one word, multiple spellings, multiple uses.

Ah well, who knows. I was just trying to think of a reason why they wouldn’t use Grindor (similar to how Nexus Prime’s original name was scrapped due its association with a different type of toy). Probably just the writers wanted to come up with a newly named character.

Review for Transformers Back to the Future Crossover Issue 2


Ok so two issues in and this series is perfectly fine for what it is: a Transformers/Back to the Future Crossover. The first issue had an extra fun feel since it basically replayed the events of the first film but in a chronological manner in the point of view of someone watching the DeLorean disappear in the 80s, setting up the story brilliantly since anyone who saw the film can just fill in any blank easily, and ending in not one but two great cliffhangers.

Image


I was rather excited to read this one and while the cliffhangers are explained, it takes practically the entire issue to do so, meaning that you are in for flashbacks for 75% of the issue. We learn all about Gigawatt and how the Decepticons became as dominant as they are now and it's fun for the most part. I most especially love how Megatron is portrayed. They strike a nice balance of ruthlessness with an over the top ego, where we even see him sport a regal cape.

Image


Once the backstory is explained, we are back to the present just in time to end the issue on another cliffhanger and that's it. Story-wise, there are no false beats here, it's just fun and anyone liking these two franchises and the idea of having fiction serve as a toy commercial will enjoy this.

On the art front, it does the job but only passably. Megatron, Gigawatt and Rumble are drawn fine but there is a rather big shot of Rodimus Prime (you read that right) that does not look right. The proportions are off, it looks like a failed attempt at a perspective shot, and a dull surprise look serves as the icing on top.

Image


Overall, it doesn't negate from the fun experience of the comic but it doesn't go in the plus column either. If you are a fan of fun crossovers, or G1 Megatron, or the idea of Rodimus being the leader of the Autobots rather than Prime, then I'd recommend giving this a shot.

I preferred issue 2 a lot better than issue 1 though the art is a little cartoony.

I was pleasantly surprised to see Rodimus Prime, my favourite Autobot.

Why does Megs bother to wear human-style ermine robes? LAZY TROPE! Also, consider the difficulty of finding and processing so many little ermine pelts! :roll:

For the same reason Starscream wore a cape and crown for his coronation.

Of all the places to find a homage to the Costa era, I didn't think it would be here.

Agreed on that one panel of Rodimus entirely. It's just a terrible hiccup in otherwise ok art.

Greetings Seibertronians! For those who are collecting the Back to the Future Transformers crossover, we have a treat for you!

From the folks over at PreviewsWorld, we can see what the B Cover of the crossover's finale will look like! This Cover shows Gigawatt on a blueprint background, doing the famous Back to the Future pose. The Cover was created by artist Phil Murphy.

Image

That's not all though, as the artist of the RI Cover (Retailer Incentive), Dan Schoening, has revealed it to the world. This Cover shows Marty McFly rocking out as the assembled Autobots (plus Doc Brown and Einstein the dog) watch on.

Image

The issue is due for release May 19th, but don't forget you can pick it, many more issues, up from the Seibertron Store, stocked up with all the best Transformers Comics.

Here is the credits and description for this issue:

PreviewsWorld wrote:(W) Cavan Scott (A) Juan Samu (Cover A) Juan Samu (Cover B) Phil Murphy (Cover RI) Dan Schoening.

Outmatched by the Decepticons, running on empty, and on the ropes, Marty McFly and the Autobot Gigawatt show why nobody calls them chicken! Will the final confrontation be in Marty's future, or will he and his companions make it back to fix the timestream before the Decepticons win? Find out in the heaviest issue of the whole series!


Have you been reading this issue? What do you think of this series? Has it made you want to get Gigawatt?

That's Rodimus Prime, actually. But at least he stood strong to the very end.

Honestly, I'm not sure what I make of this series. It's felt a bit of a mess to be honest. Enjoyable enough I guess but I dunno. Like I said, not sure what to make of it.

Indeed. I read a couple issues on comixology. Other than to sell Gigawatt, I'm not sure what purpose this serves? The only one of these crossovers that even had an interesting premise was the Terminator one.
