Thanks to the Action and Adventure Twitter Page, we have a one-page preview for the final issue of Lost Light! This first page, currently only available on iOs, features the characters from Lost Light attending a funeral on what is being called New Cybertron. This New Cybertron would be the Functionist Cybertron they defeated last issue, and as for the funeral, there are several notable characters visible and also missing from the shots. There appear to be guards armed guards present with a trailer that reads "G10" possibly to mean Garrus 10, in line with the prisons using Garrus-X. The deceased is also noted as passing due to age related burnout.

So which character could the funeral be for? Megatron? Rodimus? Someone else entirely? Let us know what you think of this brief look at the end of Lost Light below!

I'm calling it as Megatron, his story was finished, and I think this is appropriate

Why is Whirl being taken to prison? He's (relatively) reformed.

Could... could it be for Ratchet? I mean, everything in this funeral discourse sounds like something he would do, and don't forget that he was the one who talked to Tailgate about Cybertronians not being immortal and being able to die from "age-related burnout". I feel like the next panel is going to have Drift and/or First Aid and be the person(s) who said that quote while in mourning.

Maybe it's brainstorm looking at his own funeral (hence the briefcase) I think Roberts is having one last bit of fun with a fake out...

So I keep rereading Lost Light and I now know why I didnt register the "ifinite". That story element is dropped faster than a scolding hot potatoe. Its like it had no point at all and only tangentially related to adaptus to the point where it might not be connected at all (since it just ends with Scorponok who couldnt care less about that plot anymore either).

I do still much preffer James Robert's dialogue and pacing to any other TF book I ever read but this was definitely a shortcoming in storytelling. The mederi stuff is fantasic though. Did we ever figure out how Tailgate got there?

But those are definitely Prowl’s colors, Bluestreak has a blue and red color scheme. And ol Bluestreak didn’t seem to survive the whole sparkeater ordeal, it seems Ratchet accidentally killed him.

One explaination could be that this is the functinist universe Prowl, but thats a stretch. The only other explanation I’d have is that this takes place post OP25/Unicron 6, with all the characters from those series settling on what is appropriately dubbed New Cybertron.

To be fair, the whole continuity is ending so it could be anyone but it's probably someone old and hard-working.

That's my guess as well. Not only for the reasons you mentioned but because Ratchet always %$#@ing dies.

Epistemus/The Omega Guardians said they arranged for Tailgate to be teleported to Mederi. Given its ability to see through time, this could have been arranged at some point earlier in history.

The point of the Infinites was to provide troops in Adaptus' plan to fight Functionist Cybertron. That was the end game of that plot thread. They could heal themselves from death, so even if they got killed, they could come back and keep fighting.

Given James' love of trolling people over character deaths, I'm guessing it's someone we've never actually heard of (see Tripodeca).

That's my bet.
And it sucks.

maybe its a fake out for Megatron.
Sohe can go back to the Functionist Verse
without any legal hassels.

or maybe Rung.
He did vanish after making all those Matrixes.
Matrices?
Matrixi?

:-?
