Upon viewing the RID2015 #3 of the comic book online, I've recently noticed that Steeljaw has just recently formed his own army by recruiting Springload, Bisk, and along many others, which leads me to believe that it is expected that the captured Decepticons would soon escape once again and join Steeljaw's group in order for him to form a powerful Decepticon army in Season 2, as shown in the comics. But what is really interesting to me is that there is another female Decepticon in the comic under the name, Overhead, which I don't know if she is really Terrashock's girlfriend or a direct relative of his. What I do already know is that Overhead is identical to that of Terrashock, only pink instead of orange. I do have a strong feeling that Overhead will likely appear in Season 2, have Terrashock released, and finally get revenge on the Autobots for what they had done to him. Do you really think that 3rd issue of this comic book will be most closely related to what will happen in Season 2? Ever since that the Cons were already and before prisoners, they were not organized, but I do believe that in Season 2, they definitely will be, thanks to Steeljaw and Kickback. :CON:

From what this preview has, I'm more inclined to say they simply share a body type, like Prowl, Bluestreak and Smokescreen, not any others sort of thing. Fixit even says they are buffaloids, a specific body style :BOT:

Wait. This dropped last week. I read it! Why are we getting the preview, or did Comixology goof?

Directly from the blog of Georgia Ball, the current writer for IDW Publishing's Transformers: Robots in Disguise (the cartoon tie-in of sorts) we have some sad news for the series, which has been confirmed as ending with issue #6 in December 2015. You can find out more about the decision and motivation behind this here, and snippets below.

I’ve been waiting for this question to come along so I can answer - Yes, we were not given the green light to continue the comic past six issues. I’m turning in the script for #6 tomorrow and it will be the last issue in the regular series.

There are a lot of factors that went into this:

1. Almost all comics are pitched in short sets even if they are solicited as ongoing.

[...]

2. Comics are sold to retailers, not fans.

[...]

3. It was not digital-first.

[...]

All of that said, the reviews were good and the fan response couldn’t have made me happier. Priscilla did a brilliant job and made everything easy. Hasbro LOVED this book and it’s possible more of it could come out in the future but I can’t give out any details! Thank you all so much for posting about the comic, sending me questions and letting me get to know you.

Well, that's disappointing. I was enjoying this comic.

And yet transformers vs G.I. Joe continues to torment me. I'm living in a world I don't understand.

I think the problem the comic had is that the toyline sucks. I regularly go to Wal-Mart and Meijer to check for Combiner Wars, and rarely ever see a limb stick around, but boy do I see fully stocked RID stuff.

I think this goes along with the number of episodes of RID being cut short. RID isn't selling toys. The cartoon isn't going to be on the air much longer. Why continue with a property that is clearly dying, when more energy can be put towards properties that will last a bit longer?

I enjoy the RID toyline actually because its fun for me to customize my RID figures to make them more accurate the most heavily customized one is My RID warrior class optimus prime

Am no fan of RiD but I see lots of CW Drag Strip always clogging up the shelves as well as at least one of the Aerialbots (I forget which). And if we count torsos then Silverbolt is always available too.

Well... I would like to point out that this (monthly) series was also missing from the most recent solicitations. We only saw former-RiD, MtMtE and Wreckers. It might just mean that they're skipping a month with the Joe book, but the ending of current-RiD was also unannounced, so... Who knows?

The current TF vs. GI Joe was developed solely for the fandom, even though I think it is pretty pointless as well, it continues... However with RID

We pretty much saw this coming from the day the Animated series was set to be on CN rather than The HUB - CN, for some reason, hates action cartoons now. All their shows are dumbass flash animated comedies solicited to children with ADD. If it is an action show, it better darn well sell a TON of toys. Apparently RiD isn't hitting the mark. First season 2 is cut from 26 to 19 episodes, now this. It sucks, but we can't say we didn't see this coming.

Well at least fans of IDW's Transformers self-titled Comic can *maybe* rejoice, probably about this time next year, IDW can get the RiD subtitle back on that book, since RiD (2015) will be RIP.

That is not confirmed. All we know from that number is that that's how many episodes have been produced so far, not necessarily the final number.

In the forth issue of RID comics, two brand new characters are introduced as Skullcruncher and Razorgrille. Are they really Dinobots like Grimlock? Do they have vehicle modes that Grimlock doesn`t have? If so, what do they transform into? :CON:
