We're headed back into the past again, as Soundwave takes on the narrative frame of the second part of The Falling arc in IDW Publishing's ongoing Transformers series Optimus Prime, in issue #16, as Onyx Primal has made his return, with Liege Maximo in tow. Check out below the three-page preview from iTunes, and check back on Seibertron.com in a couple of weeks for more material on the chapter, including a full preview and review.

The Falling, Part 2: The arrival of Onyx Prime throws Cybertron into chaos—because he hasn’t come alone. Onyx’s treacherous companion forces Soundwave to finally make a choice: is Optimus Prime a friend... or foe?

With Earth having control of one of the few remaining energon sources, it would not surprise me in the slightest if starbucks was selling engex or circuit speeders to corner the new giant robot market in this universe's canon.

Soundwave has become one of my favorite cons thanks to this book, and he and Ravage continue to thrill me. Those 2 are/were great IDW characters

I no longer read the comics but, why does Thundercracker have a different seeker type of body?

All Seekers have gone through some changes, be it personal preference, location (Cybertron vs Earth), or artistic licence that then stuck!

The final preview, for now, for a comic out next Wednesday with IDW Publishing is the Optimus Prime annual, which picks up the story with Thundercracker (and Buster) as we follow his steps through the making of his first movie - all about currently-ex-ruler of Cybertron Starscream! Read on below from ComicCrusaders, and join in the discussion waiting for next week's review and discussion here on Seibertron.com!

[quote]THUNDERCRACKER IN: STARSCREAM: THE MOVIE!

The good news: somebody finally gave Thundercracker money to make a film. The bad news: it’s Starscream, and he wants a biographical picture to win over the people of Earth. Will Thundercracker stand by his principles or… well, no, he makes the movie.

Ugh I keep saying I need to start reading this comic in addition to the others I read.

Goodbye money, hello books!

I love Thundercracker's face in that last panel, and I can't wait to see how the movie will turn out, it's got a razzie with its name on it...which knowing how Thundercracker's mind works he'll think it's an achievement.
