Thanks to a Tweet from the Action and Adventure Twitter page, with confirmation from Previews World, we have word that IDW's final 3 Transformers issues, Lost Light #25, Optimus Prime #25, and Unicron #6, have all been delayed into November. This comes as little surprise, seeing as how the comics were planned to be released biweekly and were supposed to have wrapped up by this point, but have been plagued by more delays.

As of this post, which itself may still be subject to change over the coming weeks, Lost Light will release its final issue on November 7, Unicron #6 will conclude the Chaos Bringer's arc on November 14, and Optimus Prime will wrap up the universe on November 21.

What do you think of these delays? Are you ready to get that final issue in your hand? Is it a bittersweet moment to have the final issues pushed back just a little bit farther out of your grasp? Let us know what you think in the comments section below!

I've been keeping track of the scheduled publication dates since May over in the chronology thread, and have probably updated that post at least once a week since. Very little has been on time this year, though they did really well for a stretch of the summer. More delays should not come as a surprise, though I expect this LL one was in the realm of shipping delays on Diamond's end.

It's quite a task to cram in so many goodbyes for all the characters, I'm sure. Maybe it would be easier to have a giant foot come down and crush everyone, a la Python?!

Roche had time to correct it for a print so hopefully it makes it to the final cover as well. If it doesn't we can hassle him over it for eternity :D

Yeah, I suppose. But, it actually kind of fits, considering the characters, as they're all far from perfect as is their mission. So maybe it should be left that way.

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.

I don't see either Rewind or Thunderclash, TC would do the whole donate his body to science thing.

Why is Prowl here?

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.

Why does Brainstorm have a briefcase?

Hmm...

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.
