i love how they're shaping up the Wreckers to take on the DJD. hopefully SotW is the book that sets the stage for the showdown.

How's that going to work exactly? The DJD are far more concerned with megatron then to deal with them plus the wreckers are no where near the lost light. At this point the it's Tarn v Megs and that's bit really, everyone else is just setup

no idea. but it was hinted at in LSotW, when Springer mentioned that he had a mole planted within the Division itself. we also know that Grimlock is on their 'list', albeit for unknown reasons. and with what the Wreckers have been doing to the Decepticons, it's a wonder how they're not on the list already. plus, no Sin can ever go without Justice, so there's that.

like i said, it's shaping up to be a face off - and one can only hope that SotW brings that event a lil closer. :WRECKERS:

Umm...what? Where have they stated at all Sins will build up the return of the Wreckers and preparing to go against the DJD?

Pretty sure this will be dealing with what happened at the end of 'Last Stand' and Verity having a copy of Aquitus as well as dealing with the true consequences at the end of that series.

Wreckers Vs DJD sounds like fanwank speculation.

I'm looking for forward to Redemption. Nice to see Bludgeon survived Dark Cybertron .

I see the Wreckers being at their lowest possible point, almost. A lot would have to happen to make them back into the elite force that they were. The DJD are at the opposite end, taking down phase sixers left and right. The DJD had a scare, but are back at full force, and joined with Deathsaurus group. The Wreckers are in no shape for that type of operation, and while the lost light crew wants some revenge for Trailcutter, the rest of the Autobots don't have much reason to tangle with them, other than to try to subjugate the most devout and violent of the Decepticons.

Anyway, I am looking forward to the Wreckers moving forward, seeing where they are to go next, whether they get members back on or not, springer comes back from near death, and what Verity is going to do. It will be awesome, and satisfying, I hope.

None of us know what's in store. That's the fun!

yeah, pretty much it's all speciation at this point, but there are definitely questions when it comes to the Wreckers' relationship with the DJD. especially since Springer specifically name drops them in LSotW. i mean, the DJD are only ever 5 mates, so who could be the mole? what does he gain by feeding info the the enemy? also while it may seem like an impossibility for the Wreckers to go against the DJD, that's what the Wreckers are all about in the first place, impossible odds and suicide missions. whether i've grossly misinterpreted the signs or not, should be interesting to see where it goes. i'm anxious to see Springer and a semi-redeemed Impactor back in action together. and definitely curious about those new bots in the artwork.

Apparently the helicopter on the cover of Redemption is a new guy named Swift or something like that.



Mentioned at the panel from what I have heard.




I might be wrong but I thought it seemed true enough to mention here.

Indeed. And while Slug's robot head may be silently morose, his dino head is:
