Has anyone else found it odd that the standard scale of most alien species in the IDW verse is giant?

No, I just assume that humans are the odd, tiny ones in the universe. ;-)

There have been others. Nebulons have shown up, the blue people from Spotlight Cliffjumper, the pig people from spotlight thundercracker and little aliens had were scattered around the bar in RID #6.

It's honestly just James's books that make them the same size.

Because he writes witty British characters, personal politics and tv show references first and Transformers second.

This could be somewhat unrelated, but whatever.

Does anyone else want to see the infernocons in the IDW universe? I know right now they are movie-only characters, but I thought they were kinda cool and they have a nice name. (Infernocus just sounds great out loud to me) They could be minions of liege maximo or something like that.

I mean if they can make RID Megatron into Gigatron and add a bunch of Unicron trilogy character designs into backgrounds, maybe they can make infernocus a thing? (Also, Mohawk in the background would be a nice nod) Didn't they integrate barricade's design into one of the comics at some point?

Infernocus would be cool to see in a different way like as you said maybe a servant of Maximo or maybe Unicron if he is ever in the comics one day since they have devil horns like him.

I think they reused Barricade's WFC design which in itself is based on the G1 micromaster body but with movie colors and alt mode.

I've been trying to work that out myself. The colour scheme matches Roller, but nothing else does...

Who is the full manifesto of everyone aboard the Skip Light anyway? Rodimus, Magnus, Whirl, Cyclonus, Drift, Velocity, Chromedome, Rewind, Lug, Anode, Nautica... I don't remember the other 9. I think Roller's on it?

Roller is definitely on it. Everyone else sees a group of four when I definitely see a group of five. I hope it's Roller, he is one of my personal favorites.

I wanna see more of him because he seems to be the third new main character after Anode and Lug -- but he unfortunately didn't get a lot of focus. Even without that though you already get a good idea of who he is; a big friendly fun-loving dork. I love him.

And that's a big reason why he is not a good TF writer.

He did have a good balance back during season 1 of mtmte but then he dropped the ball probably due to how good of a reception and fan following the comic got then let it get to his head and misinterpreted that people only loved the witty jokes and not the well story and concepts also the awe and wow factor from something new disappeared MTMTE had to live up to it's reception.

Seems like Roberts thought that just because people loved Drift and Rung meant that people wanted more original characters instead of good written characters so we got more characters and now the comic is bloated and were not getting focus switched around.


Rodimus is also the worse character by far now in the comic.

I more or less agree especially with it going to his head. I did like MTMTE for the most part, but Dying of the Light was a disappointing mess and from what I read here it hasn't gotten better.
Rodimus is also the worse character by far now in the comic.
I disagree with him being the worst (Rung is the worst IMO), but he definitely hasn't been developed further. It's a waste of a great character and space on the page.
