A tweet from IDW Publishing Transformers comics writer James Roberts has revealed the cover for the upcoming issue of Lost Light #18 - drawn by Alex Milne and coloured by Josh Perez - featuring a whole lotta cast and some ominous (potentially spoilery for Marvel cinematic universe fans) hinting from the writer himself. Check it out mirrored below, and speculate away on the end of the current and next story arc, and the series itself in the Energon Pub discussion boards!

I’ve been thinking it for ages but couldn’t say anything because #spoilers, but - as this Alex Milne / Josh Perez cover to Lost Light #18 demonstrates - the last stretch of The MTMTE Saga is basically Avengers: Infinity War.

I finally caught up on Lost Light, I am LOVING it! Was not too much of a fan at first, but the mutineers trilogy was fun (while maybe a bit less nuanced than previous Roberts) and I really liked the Scavengers story. And that most recent cliffhanger is probably my favourite Roberts ever gave us. Cant wait for the next issue.

Not necessarily. When he said like Infinity War, Roberts may have just meant that the Scavengers and Lost Lighters will finally be in an issue together; like the Gaurdians and the Avengers in Infinity War. At least that’s how I took it when I saw it on Twitter.

I figured the spoilers was cover B with omega guardians.

Still calling the mutineer crew are the sparkeater army.

ALL YOUR FAVORITE CHARACTERS THAT STAYED ON BOARD UNDEAD MONSTROSITIES!

So, what do you all think is gonna happen in LL 18?

BTW that is cover B. The regular cover A is shown here. (The article almost fooled me for a second because I remember it Drift and Ratchet. Yeah LL has been driving me bonkers but I am a sucker for the favs. What can you do?)

Everyone will team up and try to fight off whoever is behind this weird place they are trapped in.

The grand Architect will show up , snap his fingers, and then Krok, Crankcase, Fulcrum, Misfire, Swerve, Rewind, Rung, Nautica, Nightbeat, Velocity, Whirl, and Roller will all die by turning to rust

Rung is going to be the one who makes the new continuity.

Other than Windblade (maybe Drift) I doubt any of the new characters well make the leap. Although if Windblade had remained comics-only, I doubt she would have either. New characters are typically the first on the chopping block in a Reboot.

I never said he would be in the new continuity, I said he would create it, even if he blows himself up to do it ;-) I wouldn't put it past barber and Roberts to have planned it for so long.

Also there will be a drift in the new continuity but the question is what will he look like as in the different mediums he's been in, he's had a different look in each.

Like Infinity War?

You mean how Ultra Magnus goes on a quest for a new hammer, then comes down and saves everyone in the nick of time?

Actually, that would be nice to see a big explosion out of nowhere, then the truck form of Magnus comes barreling out of the smoke.

I'm so happy you got the reference! I even chose every single one of those characters deliberately. Well, maybe Rung was the one I should have changed, but I needed certain circumstances to line up to IW.

And Magnus would totally make a great Thor, you're right! But instead, he loses his hammer, and gets a new MP Prime Axe!

Thanks to a heads up from Podcaster extraordinaire ScottyP, we have word that yet another Lost Light #18 cover has made its way to the light, and this time it is the special 10 issue limited edition RI cover!

Following what has been called the Avengers: Infinity War styled cover, drawn by longtime More Than Meets The Eye artist Alex Milne and colored by partner in crime Josh Perez, we have yet another cover done by the same team, and it's a bit different than the Avengers styled one. this cover only features 2 recognizable characters: Rodimus and Ratchet, along with some strange new rock lords/rubble bots/stone cons (reference: ScottyP) with a spike for a head and a hole in the chest that looks like a fusion cannon.

What does this mean the crew of the Lost Light are getting into? We have no idea! So feel free to speculate below, and let us know what you think!

Those are new characters, they are Omega Guardians from Spotlight Hot Rod

And Omega Guardians means The Magnificence is at play here somehow.

Wow, I had completely forgotten about the Omega Guardians. Time to go back through that one again! Certainly time with the delay in LL 18's release ><
