Also, am I the only one who mistook Rodimus for a fembot for a second? Also also, Drift's new look rules.

You're not the only one.
Is it me, or is Prowl hinting that the cargo is going to be a bomb?
Hes a dirty cop! OH NOES

I don't like how the character art models keep changing when a new title gets introduced.
I not a fan of Rodimus's skinny look. I would have preferred rodimus more beefy,taller & muscular looking.
I do like that bumblebee has his WFC art design. I can only imagine/guess,that the RID title will give bumblebee & others different art character designs.
I'm going to chose to not buy any TF IDW comics for 6 months. then swoop in & buy the RID & MTMTE Trade paper backs from amazon.com in june/july.
I dis-like the RID & MTMTE seperate titles. for 2 main reasons: (1) I've got to buy 2 TF G-1 idw comics in 2012. If I only buy one & not the other. it'll be like reading a book with pages ripped out here & their in the book. (2)It's confusing having Rid & MTMTE. Rid is the cybertron based series. while MTMTE is the space journey series. i just know i'm gonna jumble up the two titles.

The art...will take some getting used to. At least Roche is past his dreadful Rochelips phase? It kind of reminds me of when Cam Kennedy did Judge Dredd art.
HOWEVER, I can at least tell what's going on. Which is a step up from Livio's art.
The story, I am all over. I have not been this excited for a TF comic in a while. Here's hoping they can put the dreadful Legacy of Costa behind them.
HK: Bumblebee's epic hate-on for Drift apparently never gets old.

Not me. I really, REALLY don't like that they're using the WFC/FOC body designs for some of these characters. Doing so can only add to the still present confusion that WFC/FOC are G1, when they aren't.Tidalwavex wrote:I do like that bumblebee has his WFC art design.

Im looking forward to picking this issue up. The story has some real potential, but as in the past with IDW Im not going to get my hopes up. No dramas with the artwork either, I really enjoy the way Roche draws.

I'm looking forward to the start of the new direction and even with just these first 7 pages, I'm stoked! Tomorrow's gonna be a good day.

I actually like the art. It's not my favorite, and I really like Roche, but it's crisp and clear, and I can see the movement, know who the characters are, and I'm not going to be so distracted by it that I can't take read the story.
Do not like Bumblebee having his WFC body either. Oh well.
Prowl must have some kind of agreement with Rewind, because otherwise his statement could really piss off a lot of bots (but I don't know that he would care).
Looks like he'll have to rely on Wheeljack for his fun new inventions.

Nope. I like the style, just some bots look too different. (Also, I love the return to WFC-style bodies)

Sadly, he's not the only one. Looks like him, Ironhide, Wheeljack, and Prowl do as well.tigertracks 24 wrote:Do not like Bumblebee having his WFC body either. Oh well.

Haven't played enough WFC to know that. More sad...

To be fair, neither Prowl nor Wheeljack were in WFC anyway. But Prowl's design is based on the unused WFC Bluestreak design that was to have been for the DS game.tigertracks 24 wrote:Sabrblade wrote:Sadly, he's not the only one.

Though, I think I made a mistake about Wheeljack (I was thinking his design was his Fall of Cybertron body, but I guess it is new design after all).
