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.

I did too :/ sad that its ending but I guess I could save some money but oh well I like RID just if it hadn't been somany repaints it probably would of been a lot popular but i can understadn that the repaints & the cw repaints were for the RID decepticons/etc and the Titan's Returns Figures

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?

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.o.supreme wrote:First season 2 is cut from 26 to 19 episodes,

Just buy the comic and read it next week.

Or, they turn into snark machines like Sabrblade.
