Well I like the fact he hasn't bring Unicron into any of this stories. Plus I dislike how he crammed Grimlock into the Beast Wars . I mean I like Grimlock but in the comics he was sort of overrated. Still this new incarnation of G1 is quite refreshing and I'm enjoying it 100%.

I admit this all seems interesting and I will be picking up the comics. Though, I also have to admit that the mainstream IDW G1 series (Escalation, etc., etc.) has been my least favorite G1 comic universe to date. I just don't get that same vibe, I dunno... Love the spotlights though!

Simon's taking a liking to Sideswipe? Can't go wrong there, I say. Now I want a Dinobots Spotlight mini, with each issue focusing on a different Dinobot.

Another very good interview with Furman, who's work is getting better and better. The Furmanverse is continually growing, yet everything is inter-related, its almost like Furman could have written episodes for "Lost". (except stuff happens and gets explained in the Furmanverse)

Furman manages to let so many little details out, yet does not ruin a single future comic with spoilers.

I hope he means what I think he means when he mentioned Sideswipe. 8)

Seconded.

After Dreamwave's Sunstreaker, IDW Sunstreaker just seems like a whiney wimp. Much prefer the badass Streaker. Don't normally like 'badass' characters so this is strange.

This is going to hurt but I don't like Galvatron being a seperate entity to Megatron.

Also, am I the only one who thought Stormbringer was hollow and an insult to Marvel's much superior version of Thunderwing.

Stormbringer's problem was that it was rushed. It wasn't a four-part story, and deserved to have been spread out over maybe two more issues. Therefore, yes, in a way, it did seem hollow as, to me, it came out as underdeveloped.

I agree with each point there, after you agreed with me! :lol:

I know the original Galvatron toy (tech spec) wasn't Megatron reformatted, but he was in every storyline until this. To me, this is a bigger change than anything anyone has complained about the movie having done.
