We have the solicit for the biggest confrontation of the year. Lost Light 20 will feature Rodimus finally confronting Getaway. Both Lost Light 19 and 20 will be released in June. Another bit of news regarding schedules, the Wreckers Saga trade has been resolicited. It got pushed to July so it can include the Requiem of the Wreckers one-shot.

We also have a new movie verse comic for the Bumblebee movie. This is a prequel to the.. um.. prequel film and feautres Bumblebee as a cold war spy.

Speaking of Bumblebee, there are some major spoilers in the Optimus Prime solicit.

Oh look Lost Light isn’t tied into the Unicron Story is instead finishing their own saga like I’ve been saying for months now.

There you go people it’s not part of the big end of all things arc. Stop speculating it is.

These solicits are for the comics that come out in June, also 2 issues of LL in the same month (actually getting them ahead), but on even numbers with the OP Prime book, may be because they want to get all the necessary *story telling* aside to make room for the Unicron stuff that will no doubt take place in the fall and into the end of 2018.

But neither is Optimus Prime, so does that mean the whole Unicron thing takes place after all this?

The falling is a prelude to the final arc.

Issue 20 of LL is the start of the final arc. We’re not tying everything up in one issue of LL. It’s the first issue of the final 6 issue arc and LL ends at 25. That’s 6 issues to the end. This is part 1 which by now we know team Rodimus ain’t dead, we’re going back to drifts vision which was Pahrma, an army spark eaters, Grimlock and Symbol ships. The last two are connected to Scorponok and pharma is connected to wherever his body was dragged to which was where ever Getaway and the crew are. It’s the start of the final arc.

It’s wverything coming together.


They are not tying lost light in with unicron. It’s Roberts doing his final story before the new whatever happens after unicron.

People can speculate if they want to. You don't tell anyone what they can or can't do.

I don't even care about the Optimus Prime title, but I hope they make the Vicky-Devy fight really good.

Obviously you do care than but no, say you don’t and then contradict and I can say why I want especially when people arnt considering what’s left hanging and what’s till to come.

I actually am enjoying OP right now, but yes, that is one thing I am looking forward too also. I'm sorry, but I cant see Victorion beating Devaststor, but with the way things are now in the real world, I'm sure it is all but inevitable.

I'm not sure it's inevitable. Devastator has been shown to be less than invincible since Scoop started combining with them, but even then, he's still formidable. But Victorion has her power over gravity to work with, too. If it came down to it, I'd want her to win-Defensor is "dead", and so are Superion and Optimus Maximus. We still have two other living Decepticon combiners (Bruticus, Menasor), so I'd like to see ONE Autobot combiner survive.

Like he actually gets away? :lol:

Or he gets Furmanized once again?

I haven't read a single issue of OP, because as I said, I don't care. Then I saw the description for the gestalt fight and that piqued my interest a bit.

In a way, it was a bad move that the unicron issue spoilt things a bit here as they already revealed that bee is alive and kicking. Thinking back it also shown a certain member of a gesalt team alive as well...I'm sure this could have been planned better that there was no spoilers a month before the issue hit.

Getaway gets away? Get away! (I imagine that he'll go somewhere obscure, like Telford, England. News joke!)

What happened to Superion? I thought his componants were just in long term stasis like Omega Supreme? Anyway...the one nice thing about CW is that it showed that even if one part is destroyed, another can take its place, like with Scoop and the constructicons. Also I wouldn't exactly call Bruticus *functional*, that whole combining with brain-dead Swindle didn't work out too well. Also I have a strong feeling well see Volcanicus and Predaking sometime this summer to promote PotP somehow. I'm thinking they may be part of Onyx Prime's agenda. Also we need a good Predaking appearance after that crap they pulled in Revolutionaries

Superion isn't dead; they just won't bring him back.

In Transformers #54, Superion disabled the Enigma of Combination by writing part of its source code on his brain, then disassembling into the Aerialbots to make it useless. The Aerialbots could still become Superion again, but that would also bring back the Enigma of Combination.

Which Onyx Could then use to combine the Dinobots into Volcanicus :-? ...Not saying its going to happen, but its just a thought.

Problem with scenario is that onyx would need grimlock who is no where near the other Dino bots. Plus there is no potp tie in...idw have bigger problems with unicron about to devour them ;-)
