IDW digital assistant Mariel Romero has uploaded three new screenshots to iTunes, taken from the opening pages of Transformers: More Than Meets the Eye #40. Check them out in full size mirrored below, and find out what the Lost Light has been up to since #38!

Having saved the universe—kind of—the Lost Light crew deal with the fallout in a manner befitting the gravity of the situation. Kind of.

I like the idea that the whole reason the "empire of stone" arc happened is because Ratchet can't say goodbye.

I see ya creepin', Bombshell!

Incidentally, I hope they don't mean to imply that DELPHI was Prowl's fault. It's not enough that he's a Machiavellian bastard that no one likes, but he's also the Shadow Broker behind EVERY bad thing that happens to our main cast?

I thought they already established that. Because prowl's a fascist, like Odo from DS9.

I suppose so. I just get slightly frustrated when EVERYONE makes him out to be the end-all source of their problems. Is it just because he's the only one who isn't sorry for his actions?

Well it's not because he isn't sorry, it's because for him, the ends justify the means, no matter the cost. I said this before, even though prowl says he wants justice, he's like Odo in that his actual predisposition for order.

Wow so I'm going to go and guess that the reason Pharma is a little cray cray is because Prowl sent him to Delphi?


Because looking at all flashbacks with Pharma around before Delphi he seemed like he was a cool dude.


Not that Prowl did it on purpose or knew anything was going to happen but it really seems that a lot of things that go wrong are Prowl's fault regardless if he did it on purpose or inadvertently.






Doesn't change the fact that Whirl is still above him when it comes to screwing things up.

I'll throw this in, as I feel it's relevant:

Maybe Prowl, who can be a *bit* controlling in his ways, is in fact everyone's favourite scapegoat.
I mean, we did see him in Shadowplay as an arrogant but still new to the game detective - and he does have a lot of Batman vibes going on in some of his characterisations (thinking of the Justice League: Doom/Tower of Babel story, here). But it may not be entirely, always, really his fault.

That said, he's probably a bigger evil than Starscream in Combiner Wars.

I shudder for the day when someone says, "yeah, the DJD are pretty awful, but you know who's a REAL slag-head? Prowl!"

It's probably going to be dealing with First Aid since we know he's leaving to go back to Cybertron with mirage and the other protectobots. Those two haven't made peace with what happened in 'remain in light'

Prowl's just the guy calling the shots. delphi happened, because it was in the middle of a REALLY BAD spot and Pharma was desperate, so he took the wrong way out.

I know that much but if Pharma was not ordered to go to Delphi its possible he would have not gone mad.




As much as a jerk Pharma is I really do feel sympathy for him a lot more then other characters such as Rodimus or Chromedome and I don't know why but I care about Pharma as a character and I hope he gets done with justice in any future appearances regardless if its a flashback or in the present.






Maybe I'm just as crazy as Pharma and I'm just blabbering nonsense.

Fishing rod?

Hover board?

Oh lord, Tailgate is Daniel.

Could have been worse. Tailgate could have chosen to have a replica of the black "Pit Bull" hoverboard instead of going with the pink.

:lol:

Yet sadly, he could not avoid looking like a bojo.

I just assumed prowl was the guy assigning people to things. I don't see some nefarious plan in him sending a doctor to a hospital.

sometimes a prowl reference is just a prowl reference. :)

Agreed. He's Prime's second, so of course he's in charge of handing out assignments. He asked Pharma to handle a tough assignment worthy of his skill, and Pharma agreed. You can't blame Prowl for the fact that Pharma couldn't cope with the stresses of the job.
