The cover of that windblade book is amazing.

MtMtE: I hope this doesn't lead to megs being evil again. I can live with him leading a third faction of sorts but I want him to lead the lost light for a lot longer yet.


Main series: they aren't bringing bumblebee back are they?

That's just the Art Appreciation special cover, should not have any bearing or reflection on the story!

Even without his trusty fusion cannon poor ol' Tarn won't stand a chance.

The covers look pretty awesome with that sky byte display I think someone should attempt to replicate the scene with a sky byte and bumblebee figure

On the MTMTE cover it looks like Tarn's hand on the left, but is that a gun on the right or is it Whirl giving Megs a staredown? Because it looks like Whirl to me.

It looks like a closed fist, specular to the hand on the left. Look at the 'air vent' pattern on the thumb and the screw like thing - they both appear on each.

I know Va'al. I'm just sad they chose one that has my favorite predacon and my favorite fictional character in an homage to my favorite piece of art featuring my favorite animal and it has nothing to do with the issue at all. And no, ghost Bumblebee is not a suitable replacement no matter how interesting a concept it is. [-(

That is.. an unfortunate and extremely particular combination of bummers.

That makes a lot more sense and I'm going to go with it being correct. I should not post before adequate caffeine intake.

Ha!

Also, motion lines. It's Tarn repeatedly punching Megatron in the face.

I'm really curious if there will even be a one on one fight with them. MTMTE's solicites lie like a cheap rug to throw you off and honestly Roberts has a lot of problems when it comes to writing action. Expectations are going to be high.

So the "writing action" thing is your taste, I'll leave that alone - but what solicits have been lies? Of course solicits over-hype and do so often, they're trying to sell these things. What are they gonna say, "well this one is a quiet, mostly non-eventful build up to an issue in a couple months, check back then", or "just wait and buy the trade"? Gotta temper expectations when reading solicits and such since they're designed hype. But lies? I would like to be informed where outright factual statements were made dishonestly in solicits.

I am really looking forward to this issue of MTMTE. All I have to say is that this better not lead us down the road of Megatron becoming a Decepticon again any time soon. I really like the Megatron that is realizing just how much of a monster he is/was. Trailcutter's death and seeing the field of flowers signifying the number of deaths he is responsible for really make this seem unlikely.
